bye, bye dry

Moisturizers

Moisturizing is an important step that helps your foundation goes on smoothly and evenly. Make sure to begin with a freshly washed face, then apply your moisturizer. It’s best applied to a damp face because it goes on more evenly. Moisturizer evens the skin’s porosity and is most effective when it’s left to absorb for a few minutes before you apply your makeup. You can use a light moisturizer or a heavy one; just make sure you choose the right one for your particular skin type.

*Moisturizers for normal skin are usually light to help even out any dry areas.
*Moisturizers for dry skin are usually higher in emollients and are richer.
*Moisturizers for sensitive skin are fragrance and irritant-free
*Moisturizers for oily skin are extremely light and won’t clog pores. Many have oil-absorbing properties in them that actually help control the oil. Oily skin needs moisturizer, because it can often be over-dried by cleansers. The body is so smart; it actually produces more oil to compensate for the over-dryness, which only makes the complexion appear greasier. A light moisturizer keeps oily skin from producing more oil and can help even out its porosity.


TIP:
Moisturizing your lips before applying lip color will help it go on more smoothly.

  1. I use a night cream called cosmedix. It has l-retniol A in it. I was hesitant. I haven't used much on my face because i am so sensitive. I want to the spa and she told me a lot about my skin. Anywho, the product is working great. I will post before and after pics...I don't expect a dramatic change though. (oh yeah the little jar was like 66 bucks. So hopefully it's worth it! lol)
