Your favorite people, a festive night and a good opportunity to look your best ...
Party season, you are welcome here!
Our skin has been reacting to loads of stress, crazy weather and so much change, lately. I don't know about you, but mine's not at its best. 🤦🏼♀️ No matter how dry, dull, dewy or well rested you are, these five quick and easy steps will help to restore a fresh and healthy glow before your next night out.
Step 1: Exfoliate
Out with the old and in with party-ready skin.
Let’s begin by creating an absorbent canvas for the subsequent steps. Remove unwanted, dry and dead cells from the surface of your skin by exfoliating, first.
• a face mask packed with acids,
• wet coffee grounds, or
• a light sugar scrub to overhaul your skin.
If your dress or outfit reveals areas of your body, don’t forget to buff it, too! Focus on your joints and use long strokes for the rest of your body.
Step 2: Nourish
Ok, you’re ready to give your exposed skin cells a youthful boost with a layer of vitamins and minerals.
Your skin cells need this after exfoliation or you risk having dull, dehydrating skin. Try a nutrient-rich serum like our Beauty at the Lake Glow Serum with DMAE & Blue Green Algae.
Pick it up in the studio or online!
Step 3: Hydrate
Smooth, plump, party-ready skin is hydrated. A light hydrator (not a super thick cream) will sit evenly on your skin and ensure effortlessly applied make-up. We like the Hydrating Elixir II from Laurel Skin.
Step 4: Tan
Pale skin is not bad skin.
But for those of us who prefer the bronzed look (or look a little ill without some color), sunless tanner is the next step. A slight warmth can do wonders, but be careful not to go overboard, here, (especially in the winter).
Try the Amplify Bronze Fusion Gel by Sjolie, here.
Step 5: Prime
Before you apply your make-up, prime your skin with a good primer.
We want to keep our foundation in place all night and protect our skin. We love the Prep Primer from Elate Cosmetics.
The floral hydrate complex and hyaluronic acid plumps and firms the skin while smoothing and hydrating. 🥰 Create the perfect canvas for your foundation or powder with this step. Check it out, here.
You’re ready to apply makeup (if you even need any after these 5 steps!)
