Hi my Lovelies! Today, I am happy to share with you a new guest post written by Amy Mia. We hope you will enjoy discovering 5 Effective Skincare Products Millennials Have to Embrace.
Time flies, lovely. One day you’re laughing at your mom’s complicated beauty ritual she goes through every night, the next you’re begging her to share her secrets as you notice your first wrinkle. We’re young, brave, and quite unused to the fact that we now have to take special care of our skin to keep it looking so young.
All these creams and masks seem so confusing, especially for low-maintenance gals who are used to just slapping on some tinted moisturizer and mascara before they head out for classes. But now it’s time for you to find out all the beauty secrets women have been practicing for generations. It’s time to nourish, pamper, and soothe your skin to give it that silken glow.
From the time of Elizabeth Arden and Helena Rubinstein, the genius women who developed the skincare steps as we know them today, the moisturizer was something every woman who cared for beauty had sitting on her vanity. When we say “perfect,” we don’t really mean that there’s only one product that everyone should use.
Skincare is complex. Someone has oily skin, someone has dry skin. Someone struggles with acne, and someone has rosacea that erodes their confidence. Some women have wrinkles, and some have scarring, and some women have almost no problems at all. The first step is to figure out what your type is, and then choose the right brand based on your needs. The Moisture Surge by Clinique is a very good choice and you can read more about it in my previous review.
How to have flawless makeup that lasts all day without too many touch ups? By using a good primer. Primers are great because they give our face a good base to make the foundation apply smoothly, and they can significantly increase its longevity, especially if you tend to get oily and have trouble with makeup sliding off. Silicone-based primers can also reduce the appearance of enlarged pores, so check out Benefit’s Porefessional if you need help with that.
The best way to fight wrinkles is basically prevention. There’s nothing like quality skincare products to keep your face firm and soft, and adding a good serum to your routine can really make a huge difference. Use the serum after you have cleaned and toned your skin, but before you use your regular moisturizer. The Ultraceuticals Ultra C10 + Firming Serum is a good option because there’s nothing like vitamin C to boost the collagen production and rejuvenate your face.
The skin around our eyes is very sensitive, and generally the first thing to start showing the signs of aging. An eye cream is a godsend when it comes to saving you from those fine lines and creases, and it can also really help with under-eye bags and dark circles. RoC Retinol Correxion Sensitive Eye Cream won several beauty awards, and pretty much works wonders to smooth out your skin.
Don’t just put anything on your face, do your research. Are you prone to breakouts? Try mineral makeup, for example Jane Iredale, or BareMinerals, or Young Blood to keep your sensitive skin in check. Quality doesn’t even need to mean high-end brands either – the Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless is one of the best foundations with a matte finish on the market, and Colourpop is very cheap, yet it makes absolutely sensational eyeshadow palettes. Makeup is really fun, ladies. Get yourself some nice treats, play around with colours and look fantastic.
Last but not least – remember to wear sunscreen. This is something that should go without saying, but a lot of us still seem to be finding excuses to avoid this step. It doesn’t matter if you’re fair-skinned or dark-skinned, doesn’t matter if it’s winter or summer, just wear your protective SPF. Other than that, simply enjoy skincare. Don’t make it a chore, make it into a soothing ritual that you get to indulge in every evening. Provide quality care to your skin now in your twenties, and it will be grateful to you when you’re fifty.
