Looking at those bare-faced flawless pics, with hashtags like #nofilter #nomakeup #barefaced on Instagram and thinking to yourself, how? Same.
But...at Beautyxtd we do our research, and we've discovered ways to up your skin care routine to give yourself the same glowing, blemish free face.
Find Your Skin Type
If you find that you have tried every option out there, and your skin is still not behaving the way you want it to, we recommend seeking out a qualified dermatologist or G.P. We also have an article where you can discover your basic skin type below:
We already know the parable of washing your face at the end of the day, ESPECIALLY, if wearing makeup. So if you're not doing that already, then that's step number 1. However, what you may not realise is that the first cleanse may not wipe away the entirety of the day. Hence, the double cleanse. Double Cleansing includes using a non-rinse option first, like a makeup wipe or micellar water etc. to remove dirt and stubborn makeup. Then go for a rinse option like the Dermalogica Ultra Calming Cleanser, to remove leftover bacteria.
After washing your face and before applying moisturiser, the simple act of swiping a wash of toner on your face could do wonders. Depending on the toner, you could get a ton of benefits, but generally, toners take away any small remnants of the day, hydrate the skin and reduce pores and acne as well as redness in the skin.
Chuck On A Mask
Similar to toners, you can pretty much buy a mask to fix every skin problem you have. Masks can hydrate, brighten, treat skin of blemishes, or all in one if you've had a big weekend.
