Most people don’t take care of their skin the way they should. The good news is that it is never too late to start using natural cosmetics to rejuvenate tired-looking skin. This is because natural cosmetics contain nutritional ingredients that the skin desperately needs. It is like food for the skin! Synthetic cosmetics cannot do this. It’s amazing how quickly high-quality natural cosmetics can change the appearance of fine lines and rough skin.
Step 1 Exfoliate
Did you know that there are dead cells on your face that clog your pores and make your skin feel rough? These dead skin cells must be removed with a scrub. Scrub means you are gently removing them with a face scrub that contains sand. This is important, because it not only helps your skin renew itself, it also makes it look better. Basically you are laying the groundwork for whatever cosmetic you are going to apply on this smooth surface. You should exfoliate every week, twice if your skin is not super sensitive. If you have super sensitive skin, exfoliate every two weeks. Always moisten your face before applying a scrub. Use gentle circular motions. It is important not to scrub too much or too much. Rinse then pat dry. But don’t forget to be gentle.
Step 2 Clean
Soap can dry out the skin and should not be used on the face. This is because it makes the skin feel tight and dry. Dryness is the first indication that a soap or cleanser is too strong. Instead, use a mild, natural cleanser. They contain natural ingredients that rejuvenate and soothe the skin. Avoid using wash cloths, because washers do not completely rinse all detergents and fabric softeners. These residual harsh chemicals, even in the smallest amounts, can destroy your skin. Remember, the skin around the eyes is fine and delicate, so it won’t be pulled.
Question: Are soapy cleansers best for oily skin and creamy cleansers for dry skin? No, soapy cleansers are harmful to the skin, because sodium lauryl ether sulfate or sodium lauryl ether sulfate (SLES) are too harsh on the skin and often cause dryness, redness, peeling, itching, etc.
Step 3 Hydrate
After scrubbing and cleaning, it is important to restore natural moisture to the skin so that it appears plump and plump. Hydrate first thing in the morning and before going to sleep. Always give your skin a few minutes to absorb the moisturizer before applying makeup. Especially blushes or powders, because if you don’t, they will be streaked or mottled. The eye area is sensitive, the skin is thinner, and requires a different type of moisturizer. You should only use creams that are for the eyes. Make sure to apply them carefully, not too close to the lashes. You don’t want your lashes to drag some of your cream into your eyes. This can cause itching and swelling. If you have dry skin, night cream can be beneficial. Why? Because night creams tend to contain a richer concentration of oils. When selecting a cosmetic product, read the label and make sure all ingredients are natural. Not all natural cosmetics are really 100% pure.
Step 4 Makeup
Question: Are expensive makeup brushes better than cheap ones? The most expensive brushes you can buy are the cheap ones. The bristles stick out of your face and they just don’t last. You will end up replacing them often. If you can afford it, invest in some high-quality brushes. You will only need a few. And good brushes will allow you to use your less expensive makeup more effectively. They will also give you the best end result. This is what makeup actually looks like when applied to the skin. The only thing that women want to achieve is a more natural appearance. Even if you are wearing a lot of makeup, you want it to look natural. But if your brushes are hard and rough, then the end result will appear hard and rough.
Step 5 Apply makeup: eyes
If your eyes are sunken, you don’t need to apply a lot of eyeshadow; all you need is a light brow color as the structure is already there. Lots of mascara and a very fine eyeliner will complete the look. Along with the sunken eye structure there is also a natural shadow. This is why colors like pink, purple, and orange are good for brightening the eyes. People with wide eyes will look great with a smoky neutral shade. Heavier eyeliner will add dimension to the eyes. If you have smaller eyes, you can make a crease to accentuate the eyelid. Lastly, for big eyes, use lots of eyeliner on both the inside and outside of the eye. If you have been blessed with big, beautiful eyes, do not wear shadow and if you must, apply it very lightly.
Step 6 Apply makeup: cheeks
For people with high cheekbones, place the blush on the back of the cheek in a subtle way closer to the ear and along the jaw line. For those with round faces, use more blush to create a cheekbone. If your face has a long structure, apply the blush very subtly. Too much blush will make people with a long face look like their chin is elongated.
Step 7 Apply makeup: lips
If you have thin lips and want them to appear fuller, use a lip liner followed by a lighter color. For those of you who want to tone down your lips, wear a lot of lip liner and dark colors like a deep burgundy or brown.
Experimenting with natural cosmetics and makeup can be a lot of fun. The best way to achieve your best appearance is to practice. There is nothing wrong with trying a new brand of natural cosmetics and seeing if it works better for you. Natural cosmetics are certainly healthier for your skin.
