These are some of the products I personally find to work best on me and my sensitive-Rosacea prone skin. However I think a very basic skin care routine should involve a makeup remover, a cleanser, a moisturizer and a sunscreen if it’s daytime. So I usually take my makeup of with <span style=“text-decoration: underline;”>Bioderma’s micellaire water</span> and then I wash my face with a simple bar of soap(if my skin is more irritated) or with a very gentle cleanser. After that I spray my face with some thermal water and apply my moisturizer. My favorite one is the <span style=“text-decoration: underline;”>Redness solution from Clinique</span>(life savor, hands down best redness relief cream ever). Some times when I feel dry I mix it with one or two drops of <span style=“text-decoration: underline;”>pure Jojoba oil</span>. Next it is an eye cream and my sunblock. Lately I’m using a <span style=“text-decoration: underline;”>Clarins </span>on with an SPF of 50 and I really like it. It works as a makeup base as well.
“My first sunscreen was the one with the little girl and the dog pulling her swimsuit off,” recalls Gaby Giron, Sephora Assistant Skincare Merchant. “I just remember the smell. It was definitely memorable, but not in the best sense.” Thankfully, the days of chalky, greasy, weird-smelling sun protection are over—along with excuses not to wear it. New innovations in formulas and formats now offer a wealth of solutions to old problems, and, often, additional skincare benefits. Read on for the answer to your sunscreen dreams. MELISSA LANE
How to Prep Your Lashes For Mascara & Get The Most Out Of Your Natural Lashes
Everyone wants super long lashes but unfortunately without the help of false lashes and extensions they can be difficult to achieve. Rather than messing around with false lashes, glue and tears of frustration try using these tips to prep your lashes for mascara and get naturally long, thick looking lashes.
Step 1. Start by tightling your eyes (dotting in-between your lashes with an eyeliner)
Step 2. Curl your lashes, start by curling at the base of the lashes, squeezing, then moving to the middle of the lashes, squeezing and then out o the very tip sand squeezing. This will give lashes the most lift.
Step 3. Wiggle a lash primer through the base of your lashes and continue wiggling it to the tips.
Step 4. Once the first coat of lash primer has dried, apply another coat.
Step 5. Ensuring that your second coat of lash primer has dried, coat the lashes with a good mascara. Try angling the outer corner lashes outwards, the middle lashes upwards and the inner corner lashes inwards for a full “fan” effect.
Step 6. Now move onto the lower lashes, start defining them by wiggling a clear mascara through the lower lashes, this will help enhance their length making them ready for mascara.
Step 7. Finish by applying mascara to your lower lashes using a simple “stamp” technique once the clear mascara has dried. Whether you choose to use your regular mascara or one with a smaller wand is up to you. As the lashes have already been defined you do not need to wiggle the mascara wand.
