6 Skincare Tips For Makeup Artists To Share With Their Clients
Calling all makeup artists… What’s better than making women feel and look their best? Helping them preserve that glow even after the makeup comes off. Here are six tips (and some extra deets) to help YOU help your clients care for their skin under the makeup.
A GOOD SKINCARE ROUTINE WILL TRANSFORM HOW YOUR SKIN (AND MAKEUP) LOOK
Other great ingredients to look for include: green tea extract, grape extract, resveratrol, vitamin C, vitamin E, superoxide dismutase, quercetin, willow herb extract, feverfew extract, and licorice extract.
All cleansers are not made equal so be sure to choose based on your skin type
Using the right cleanser is more critical than most of us think. The cleansing step sets the tone for the rest of the skincare routine. If a cleanser is too rich for the skin, it can leave behind an oily residue which may lead to clogged pores. If a cleanser strips the natural oils of the skin, it leaves the skin dry, irritated or even sensitive. Even worse, it can cause rebound sebum production, making the skin more oily than it would usually be its own. With so many options available, it can be overwhelming to figure out which one would be ideal, so there’s a quick guide you can share with your clients.
Never go a day without a moisturizer and sun protection
Exfoliate but make sure you don’t overdo it
The order of how you apply your skincare products matters
Beautiful skin requires patience, consistency and time
Sometimes we don’t see results from our skincare hauls because we aren’t using the products regularly or long enough. For any skincare product or routine to work, it requires time and consistency. For the best results, you want to consistently use that routine at least 6 to 8 weeks. There are exceptions to this rule: retinoids or retinol containing products can take up to 12 weeks to produce any noticeable changes to the skin.
It’s also important to know how often to use different products. For example, products like cleansers, toners, and certain serum should be used twice a day (day and night). Other products like chemical exfoliants, or targeted treatments for concerns like hyperpigmentation or retinol products, may only need to be used every other day or once a week.
