There's nothing like the feeling of going without makeup and knowing you still look amazing, right? Bright and even skin is and will always be in fashion. But before you dismiss the idea that the perfect skin is just a distant dream, why not try our fool-proof skincare tips? Here's how we do it.
The first step to getting glowing skin is to be gentle. Always. From taking off your makeup to putting on skincare — make sure you treat your skin with care. Love your skin, and it'll love you back.
Pro-tip: Cleansing can strip away essential oils and moisture from your skin, so do it gently by double-cleansing.
We recommend a good cleansing balm to remove makeup and Botanifique's Highlight Brightening Foaming Cleanser to get a deep clean without stripping your skin.
A Face Mask is a MUST!
Face masks come in different forms. Not only are they fun to put on, but they also give the skin some much-needed TLC. It moisturizes the skin, controls oil production and, even brightens and evens out the skin.
Pro-tip: Some masks are made to target specific skin concerns, so if you want bright skin masks containing niacinamide, mulberry extract, and vitamin C will be more up your alley.
We recommend Botanifique's Highlight Brightening Facial Mask made with skin brightening Melaslow ™. It also has lemon peel extract and calendula oil to even out skin tone and give the skin a lit-from-within glow.
Maintaining moisture on the skin is the key to getting that healthy glow. It also reduces sebum and oil production as well as protects the skin from environmental stress and aging. So we cannot stress this enough: YOUR SKIN NEEDS MOISTURE. Never skip your moisturizer even on a particularly hot day, and you're one step closer to bright skin.
Pro-tip: Never forget to put skincare on your neck (especially moisturizer) since it is the part of our skin that shows signs of aging first.
We recommend Botanifique's Highlight Brightening Moisturizing Cream. It gently soothes skin inflammation since it has aloe vera and intensely hydrates since it also has shea butter and jojoba oil in it.
Don't Forget the Body
Wouldn't it be nice to have glowing skin all over? We're here to tell you it's not too far out of reach, a good body care routine is the answer. Use moisturizing soap, exfoliate twice a week and invest in a body moisturizer to get that glow.
Pro-tip: If you can't stand lotions during hot summer days, try using body butter at night. Not only will it give twice the moisture a regular lotion has but, it also lasts longer.
We recommend Botanifique's Highlight Brightening Body Lotion. It contains hydrating shea and cocoa butter that penetrates deep into the skin. It also has vitamin C which brightens the skin.
Get Your Facial Fix
Facials are great. Not only are they a way to unwind after a stressful week, but they also target specific skin concerns you may have. Did we mention the results are effective? It's no wonder celebrities flock to spas and dermatologists before red carpet events; they're pure magic. So along with a skincare routine that works for you, don't forget to book a facial once a month to achieve glowing and soft skin guaranteed to be the envy of many.
Pro-tip: Go to appointments sans makeup, so it's easier for estheticians to do their job. You'll be taking them off anyway!
We recommend Botanifique's Highlight Brightening facial treatment offered at Elite Skin Perfection. The products they use have Melaslow™ that brightens the skin, lightens acne scars, and hyperpigmentation.
