6 Skincare Online tips

To say skin is the mirror of our whole personality in total is not an overstatement. How we treat ourselves and our body is what reflects on our skin. Shabby, wrinkled, premature ageing means we have been really lazy with the rest of our body too and skin is just one of the parts that are showing up. You could be stressed, happy, excited or down. All of these emotions are very well reflected by your skin.

The excuses like “I don’t have time”, “I can’t follow a skin care regime” only add to woes as good skin care would take up not more than 10 minutes of your daily routine. You could browse tips for skincare online and apply the one which suit you the most.

However a few basic tips for skin care are given below:

  • Cleanse: One of the biggest favor you could do to your skin is to cleanse it regularly. If you don’t have time and energy to use a makeup remover, just facing your face twice with a mild soap would do the needful. An occasional cleansing with milk and a few lemon drops would make sure that your skin remains zit’s free. You could follow it up with applying a face cream or sunscreen depending if you are at home or stepping out.
  • Do not forget your sunscreen: UV rays damage your skin like no other. Even if you are mostly indoors or hardly step out, you would need to use a sunscreen preferably of less PF. If your job profile is such that you are needed to work for long hours in the sun, buy a sunscreen with a higher PF.
  • Say no to chemicals: Fancy anti ageing creams, dark circle eye defence cream and such other creams that promise you to look younger could be nothing but creams loaded with chemicals which do more harm than good. Instead, opt for herbal or anti-oxidant rich products which when routinely incorporated in skin can bring upon many positive effects. Even men can insist on using antioxidant shave gel which would leave their skin smooth and would not feel any burning sensation as well.
  • Happy Inside and Happy outside: A major part of skin care depends upon how we treat ourselves. Bad eating and sleeping habits, not drinking enough water and not using proper creams could adversely affect your skin. Get plenty of fresh air, eat healthy and follow an exercise regime religiously and you could look young beyond your age.
  • Anti Ageing products and you: It’s a myth that you need to use anti ageing cream only once you see signs of ageing like crow’s feet or laugh lines. The truth is everyone in their twenties, should religiously apply any product with retinal as a preventive measure.
  • Expensive products do not guarantee healthy skin: A few cosmetics cost a bomb and a few people invest in them blindly thinking that they are putting money in Youth Mountain. Sadly that money goes in drain as there is no mambo jumbo formula for good skin. Instead follow basic skin care tips along with positive attitude and healthy lifestyle for a blemish free, glowing skin.

A Guide To Oily Skin

So, you have oily skin and you want to take control of the dreaded oily T Zone and the whole makeup sliding off your face before it’s even lunch time situation? Well, luckily you have come to the right place..

Being a girl who struggles with oily skin, I have picked up a few tips and tricks on how to control and mattify without looking like a walking chalk board. It’s all about finding the right make-up for your skin, which can be quite daunting with the amount of the stuff out there, but with these points and recommendations it should hopefully help guide you to the right place!

Finding the right Foundation:

Always check the ingredients on the back of a foundation, as they give a good indicator of how that particular product will work on your skin. If it has oil in it, put it down and run away! Oily foundations will most definitely create nasty break outs on your skin and clog up your already angry pores. STEP AWAY FROM THE OILY FOUNDATIONS, I REPEAT, STEP AWAY FROM THE OILY FOUNDATIONS!

Oily SkinYour best bet will be to go for a full-coverage matte foundation, which will be much more durable and will help to stay in place longer than lunch time. However, use a minimal amount, don’t just go crazy and slap it on. A light coating actually lasts longer than a thick layer and will give your pores some more room to breathe. Make sure to go for a water based/liquid foundation or an oil-free. You could even go for a powder foundation, which will help control the shine and is very easily applied.

With oily skin, it is a good idea to apply with a brush or a sponge rather than your fingers. This is because your skin is more susceptible to break outs from bacteria and your fingers are covered with the stuff.

Finding the right Concealer:

Luckily, there are a few concealers out there that have ingredients in them to help reduce blemishes and soothe the skin. Go for these types as they cover well, whilst helping the skin at the same time. Score!

However if you are looking to cover acne marks or nasty blemishes, then a good idea would be to go for a cream based concealer as they are thick and cover extremely well. A few recommendations would be Benefit Boi-ing concealer or MAC Studio Finish, both a little on the pricey side but they are heavyweight champions that should help to cover any imperfections you have.

Applying Powder:

With oily skin, you are going to want to powder that skin up! Applying a good face powder helps to reduce the nasty greasy look and perfects the skin even more. Pressed powder tends to have more coverage than a loose powder, but see which one you prefer to work with. Always remember to be light handed as of course you want to matte the appearance of your face, but you don’t want to look like you have face planted into a bowl of flour. Take a look at my post on how to apply face powder in order to get a really good idea of the best way to pack that stuff on! You will also probably want to keep your powder with you in your bag, so you can touch it up throughout the day.

How to deal with oily eye lids:

Yes, we know the horrible creases and lines that come with oily eye lids, it isn’t fun and it doesn’t look good, but you can stop it from happening!
Always use a primer, this helps to keep the shadows in place and believe me, if you are using a good primer, the shadows shouldn’t budge!

Try to steer clear of cream or liquid forms of eye shadows as they tend to slide all over the place, although a primer will help. Use a gel based eye liner instead of liquid liners, as they tend to be more long-lasting and have a thicker consistency.

Hopefully these points will help you create a beautiful matte face to show off to the world without having to worry about your face looking shiny or greasy. Just remember to always look at the ingredients and a good idea is to get testers before buying a product, so you can give it a trial and see how it works. There is nothing worse than splashing out on a product that ends up making you look like a dot to dot drawing! Trust me.
