How to Choose Makeup and Skin Care Products that work well together.
One thing that a lot of women fail to take into consideration when purchasing skin care and makeup products is whether they work well together in the first place. Often, the makeup we buy may clash with the collagen moisturiser or other skin care products being used, and this may lead to a form of reaction.
Therefore, great care needs to be taken when selecting makeup and other skin care products in order to prevent long-term damage to the skin. Combining makeup and other products isn’t so hard.
Here are a few tips to ensure you get it right every time:
a) Select the right moisturiser
Ensuring your skin is properly hydrated is one major key to ensure your makeup products bring out the effects that you want. If your skin is overly dry, it can make your make-up to crack hence not giving you the appearance you want. You should buy a good moisturiser that properly hydrates your skin without making your face overly oily. You should always use a moisturiser on your face after you have taken a shower. This is the best time because the water will make your skin more receptive to the ingredients in the moisturiser.
b) Work with the weather
The skin is a living organism, just like any other part of the body. It is made up of billions of tiny cells, and just like any organism, it has its own set of needs. Therefore, you need to focus on the needs of your skin. When the weather changes, it is important to know that you cannot use the same makeup and skincare products that you use regularly. The products you use in the summer should definitely not be the same as the ones you use in the winter. It is essential to know just what your skin needs at a particular time.
c) Read the instructions!
This is probably one flaw that every woman has; ignoring the instructions. A lot of makeup and other skin products come with instructions that we often fail to take note of. You need to read the instructions on your makeup and skin care products as they often contain valuable information on how to combine products. Some makeup items will react with certain skin care routines, so it is important to study which products work well with others carefully.
Just to make sure that the skin care products work as the manufacturer claims, read into the fine print. In addition, look at the concentration of active ingredients in any cosmetic product. If the products have the right proportion of ingredients, a value will be provided to support that. For instance, you should see information such as 10% Vitamin C, 0.5% retinol, 10% glycolic acid or 2% salicylic acid.
Drugstore products may not contain the exact ingredients like other prescription cosmetics, but you can still check for leading words such as moisturizing, hydrating or exfoliating then match a product whose properties fit your skin’s needs.d
d) Do your research
Information is everything when it comes to skin care. Never be afraid to spend some time searching for the needed information on the best way to combine your skin care products. This also includes knowing your skin type. Do your homework thoroughly to see if any new products will work well on your skin. In addition, always analyse your skin type and any issues your skin may be facing before buying any skin care and makeup products.
