It can be quite a hassle doing make-up on dry skin, especially during winters. At times, no amount of moisturisation seems to be enough!
However, with the right routine and regularity of usage, you will be able to master the art of looking flawless and touching up your dry skin. Keep reading to know what you are doing wrong and how to correct it:
1 You are Not Exfoliating
You may think that scrubbing your face will dry out the skin but removing those dead cells is a must. Do Not forget to exfoliate regularly for smoother skin.
2 Using the Right Cleanser
To lock in moisture after scrubbing your skin, use a gentle yet moisturising cleanser or cleansing lotion to make sure your skin doesn’t dry out.
3 Moisturising Enough
This one is a no-brainer! Use a nourishing moisturiser 2-3 times a day to make sure your skin is not parched and flaky, and whenever you are using make-up, it remains smooth.
4 Right Base for your Skin Type
Instead of using thick foundations that will dry your skin further, opt for light, liquid, hydrating formulas that blend well with the skin and don’t sit heavy on the face either. Also, skip the powder as it can also make your skin dry.
5 You are Using a Brush
Instead of using a brush, opt for beauty blenders which are made with a sponge. Not only are they easy to use, but they also make sure that the product pushes into the skin and sets nicely.
6 You are Not Using a Hydrating Mist
Keeping a mist handy with you to set your make-up, refresh yourself, and hydrate your skin is always a good idea. It will give your skin a fresh, dewy glow.
Your lips are also an essential part of your make-up routine, so give them the pampering they deserve:
7 Moisturise your Lips
The benefits of a good, hydrating Lip Balm cannot be undermined. You can always make a lip scrub at home- to be applied only once a day- to further soften your lips.
8 Use a Creamy Lipstick
Even though they look great, we all know how matte lipsticks can dry the lips and give them a cracked appearance. Take good care of your lips by using a creamy lipstick which will nourish them while doing its job too.
So take care of yourself, drink loads of water and follow good skin care and make-up routine to keep your shine on.
