Makeup only looks as good as the skin underneath it. Following a skin care routine can set you up for skin success. Here’s a breakdown of the basics and products that are useful year-a-round, all priced under $20!
Moisturizing the skin is an important step in preserving youth. Use a moisturizer rich in antioxidants, which act like little soldiers at war against skin-damaging free radicals that we face (pun intended) every day.
Sunscreen shields the skin from the aging effects of the sun. Neutrogena Ultra Sheer liquid daily sunblock ($11.99) leave’s no shine, is practically invisible under makeup, and doesn’t turn tan skin ashy. Allergic to sunscreen or have uber sensitive skin? The mineral based, fragrance free Physicians Formula Healthy Wear SPF 50 Tinted Moisturizer ($14.99) packs tint, moisture, and sunscreen all in one application.
Serums treat the skin and there’s a formula for every concern. They are usually applied before the moisturizer and in some cases can be used as the moisturizer itself. It’s an extra step but worth the effort! If it’s one time out of the day you decide to treat your skin, night time is the best time, which aids the reparative process your body naturally experiences. Boots No.7 Protect and Perfect Beauty Serum ($19.99) is a multi-tasker product appropriate for day and night use.
