Exfoliating is an essential step in your skin care routine for great looking makeup. Not only does it reveal brighter, more radiant skin, but it also helps your other skin care products work their magic. Ready to learn more? Grab a snack, your fave gentle exfoliant, and let’s glow!
Imagine wearing a full face of makeup, but your skin looks dull, lackluster, and maybe even patchy. This happens because dead skin cells are making your skin look less vibrant, and your makeup is building up on those patchy areas. Regular exfoliation, about 1-2 times per week, is the solution!
Exfoliation is the removal of dead skin cells, thus revealing brighter, more radiant skin. When you remove dead skin cells, you’re creating a smooth canvas for your makeup to glide on and look its best. No more cakey or patchy makeup!
Exfoliating also helps your other skin care products work their magic. When you remove dead skin cells, you’re allowing your serums, moisturizers, and other skin goodies to penetrate deeper into the skin. This results in more hydrated and glowy skin, which will result in beautiful, radiant, and longer-lasting makeup!
But wait! Don’t go overboard with exfoliation, my friend. Over-exfoliating can cause damage to the skin barrier, leading to sensitive skin. This could lead to dry, textured skin, and we want the complete opposite of that! To keep your skin happy and healthy, it’s important to use gentle exfoliants, like Sexapeel by Sonia Roselli Beauty (my fave! I use this stuff on just about every makeup client.)
In conclusion, exfoliating is a must-do step in your skincare routine. Don’t let dead skin cells dull your complexion, make you look older than you are, or ruin all the hard work you put into your makeup! Use gentle exfoliants and exfoliate 1-2 times a week for youthful and radiant skin and beautiful, long-lasting makeup. Trust me, your skin (and Makeup Artist) will thank you!
