Beauty and skincare go hand in hand, especially for those who want to show their best with confidence through makeup. Having a good skin routine from youth will help maintain a healthy-looking skin later on in life. To avoid unpleasant rashes, irritation and uneven colour, you must follow a few steps to prep your skin before applying makeup. If your skin looks clean and bright without the makeup it will only look better with a touch of primer and blush. Your daily skin routine can be fun and relaxing at the same time. And your skin will definitely thank you for taking good care of it.
Before diving into your makeup kit, carefully examine your face. Does it need hydration, a calming serum or simply a good cleanse? Nowadays there are so many amazing skin products and gadgets to make your skin look better than looking after it can become a sheer pleasure.
Preparing your Face Before Makeup
The following steps will ensure your face is perfectly prepped for makeup
Clean the Face Thoroughly
The first step before putting on makeup is to clean the skin. Always cleanse your face before applying makeup. Even if you already have makeup on and just want to touch it up, it is always better to start from the very beginning. So, wash the existing one-off.
Removing dust and oil is essential to keep the skin clear and radiant. Good cleansing milk or cleansing face gel should work well. For an extra clean and glowing skin, I use FOREO facial cleansing massager. This smart device helps me to deep cleanse my skin and provide a refreshing feeling.
After using the LUNA mini 3 for a couple of months, I noticed that it eliminates blemish-causing impurities (sweat, dirt, oil and dead skin) very well while remaining exceptionally gentle on my skin. So I feel like using it for one minute twice a day helps me to achieve a fresh, clear and naturally beautiful complexion.
How to use FOREO LUNA mini 3 with the app
Often, I use my LUNA mini 3 with the FOREO app. It automatically syncs your preferred cleansing settings to your device, so you don’t need to set it every time. And you can even FIND YOUR LUNA with it if you misplace it. I am personally very grateful for this option every time because I am known to forget where my things are!
The 3-zone brush head and 12 adjustable massage intensities offer you a fully customizable cleansing experience suitable for any skin type. Use it to clear away dead skin, diminish the visibility of pores, gently exfoliate your skin and remove blackheads. Choose between 5 different colours and get a more radiant skin right away!
FOREO LUNA mini 3 is the only gym bag-friendly cleansing device specially designed to care for active skin. Gentle yet powerful T-Sonic pulsations and extra-soft touchpoints work together to effortlessly remove dirt, oil and sweat for fresh, glowing skin. The all-new Glow Boost Mode reveals a healthy, radiant complexion in just 30 seconds for the ultimate time-constrained cleanse. I really love how I can wash my face very quickly if I am in the rush without skipping the necessary steps. I find that FOREO LUNA mini 3 longer silicone bristles reach deeper than all previous LUNA mini models to get my skin cleaner faster.
Remember to choose a facial cleanser that suits your skin type. Gently massage the cheeks, forehead, chin, nose and neck. Press the LUNA mini 3 button and cleanse away. Rinse your face with warm water and apply a good toner. While cleaning the face, try to avoid over washing, as hard water affects our skin’s protective barrier and can cause irritation.
There are different types of toners available on the market. Some reduce pores and tighten the skin, some soothe and soften it. There are several ways to apply a toner. You can use cotton discs. Simply apply some facial toner to the cotton disc and wipe the face away from the eyes until the solution. Otherwise, you can pour some toner onto your palms and splash your face with it.
Hydrating your face is also an important part of preparing the skin for the makeup. This adds extra moisture to the skin and also creates a moisture barrier. It helps to reduce fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes and mouth.
Some women tend to wear makeup without really preparing their face. The end result sometimes is a hardened artificial appearance, which is quite undesirable. It is very important to look after your skin to prolong its healthy young look. And this requires a few simple steps that, if followed regularly before makeup, can provide smooth and even skin.
Cleaning your face before makeup helps avoid tired, dry and blocked skin in the long run.
These are just some of the important steps in looking after our skin and, as you can see, taking care of your skin is essential, not only for its external beauty but also for maintaining its health in the long run.
Cleansing, exfoliating, toning and moisturising should be part of your daily skin routine for smooth, glowing skin that is a great foundation for any type of makeup as they are very important in keeping your skin glowing.
I find that using the FOREO LUNA mini 3 cleansing massager helps me to get my skin cleaner faster and also in a very enjoyable way. I appreciate the benefit of feeling tech(y) while using the app and I truly feel like the colour I have chosen helps me to feel playful, excited and positive throughout the day.
