How to Prepare Your Skin Before Make-up
6 Steps To Prepare Your Face Before Applying Makeup
1. Cleanser/ Exfoliator
Wash your face with lukewarm water. Use a soft and mild cleanser to help you even out your skin tone. This will further help make your skin smoother. Choosing the right cleanser is the first step toward preparing your face for makeup. If your skin is sensitive, be sure to keep away from cleaners that include glycolic acid as it may
induce redness and irritation. Find something gentle enough to help you achieve your desired look and prepare your face for a dewy glow.
The lower the pH number, the more acidic it is. If you do not have any severe skin problems, it is ideal to find a cleanser that matches your skin’s pH balance. If you have acne-prone skin, look for a slightly more acidic cleanser to help your skin fight bacteria.
Exfoliating means uncovering the new smooth skin beneath by getting rid of dead skin cells.
How to choose the right Exfoliator?
Look for a gentle daily exfoliator with tiny granules that are circular in shape. Rough and irregular ingredients may be harmful as they could tear your skin and make it excessively dry. Rinse your face well with lukewarm water so that your makeup does not thicken. DON’T forget to exfoliate your neck!
Organza Natural Skin Care’s Hydrating Renewal Scrub is a gentle wonder-balm that removes dead skin, tackles pigmentation, blemishes and acne, tightens pores, evens out skin tone. If you suffer from dry skin, this scrub should be your best friend.
2. Toner or Serum
Once you have exfoliated your skin well, apply toner or serum and wait for a few seconds for it to dry. Toner is beneficial for highly oily skin, while serum works wonderfully for dry skin as it hydrates the face. This is a step that we often tend to skip but is an important one.
How To Choose The Right Serum?
Choose a serum that contains the following ingredients:
I. Vitamin C for smoothening the skin.
II. Sodium hyaluronate for sealing the moisture level of your skin.
III. Herbs to hydrate the skin and minimise ageing.
This step comes even before your moisturiser. Your eye cream is expected to be thin. It helps moisturise and even out the skin tone around your eyes, so you look more awake. The area around your skin is fragile and delicate, so make sure you put your eye cream correctly to even out uneven skin tone.
Our Creamy Eye Potion Treatment relieves dark circles and puffiness. This proven formula penetrates deep under the skin, significantly increasing hydration and skin barrier function and naturally correcting the colour under the eyes to look healthier, nourished and full of radiance.
Whether your skin is oily or dry. Before applying makeup, you will want to use a light moisturiser not to make the base oily. Make sure you use a moisturiser that suits your skin type and offers all-day hydration. One way to apply it is to press the moisturiser onto your skin instead of rubbing it in. This will allow the solution to seep into your skin and stimulate your skin cells properly.
How To Choose The Right Moisturizer?
If you have acne-prone skin or uneven breakouts, look for an oil-free, non-comedogenic moisturiser. If you have dry skin, look for a cream that is thicker to wear during the day. A thicker cream will also prepare the base for a dewy “right-out-of-shower” look.
We highly recommend that you try our Ultra-rich regenerative Silk Cream moisturiser for daily use for dry skin.
Primer sets the base for a flawless makeup application. Primer also acts as a barrier to fill in any lines in your skin so that makeup does not crease in them.
How To Choose The Primer?
For the final pre-makeup preparation, look for a primer with silicone as the main ingredient. This will fill in any unwanted splits, leaving your skin perfectly smooth and ready for makeup. If you have acne-prone skin, a light green primer will work well to counter the redness.
