Did everyone participate in the Christmas party a few days ago? Did you have fun? The time spent putting on makeup for a party is naturally longer than usual, causing more harm to the skin, so it is not only important to prepare well before applying makeup, but also to pay attention to post-makeup skincare. This time, I will share with you some skincare tips based on my many years of experience with heavy makeup for acting. What skincare tips do I have before and after makeup?
What should be done before the party to make the makeup last longer and stay put?
When it's so dry and we have to wear makeup for a long time, we need to start preparing a few days in advance. It is recommended that you start applying a face mask every night a few days before, or even before applying makeup, or use a toner to wet a cotton pad and pat it on your face for 3 minutes to improve the condition of your skin, which will make your makeup last longer and fit better. The secret to long-lasting and fitting makeup is to make it as thin as possible. Don't apply too much foundation, and leave blemishes for concealer to cover. If you are afraid that the concealer is too dry, you can mix it with eye cream to reduce the chances of dry lines appearing under your eyes. In addition, we must not use excessive loose powder to set makeup, especially in such dry weather, which will make the makeup look thicker and unnatural. In addition to using powdery setting products, especially for those with dry skin, you can use setting spray to achieve the same effect.
It is important to remove your makeup as soon as possible after a party to clean the dirt from your pores.
For anyone, it's always better to wear makeup for as short a time as possible, so the first thing to do when you get home is to remove your makeup and clean your face of all makeup and dirt. Don't sleep with makeup on, as this is the best way to take care of your skin. If we don't clean our faces thoroughly, residual makeup can cause pigment deposition and clogged pores on the face, leading to problems such as acne and dullness.
Actually, several cleaning methods we often use are wrong. Check to see if you have done this.
✖ Even if you only apply sunscreen or a tinted moisturizer on a daily basis, these products still need to be removed. These products can cause dirt to build up on your face and clog pores if they are not cleaned, leading to skin problems.
✖ Don't try to clean your entire face with just one makeup cotton pad. Pulling hard can cause wrinkles on your face, so it's best to clean gently in a single direction using a lifting motion.
✖ Rinsing off makeup remover oil before it is fully emulsified can clog pores and lead to blackheads and acne. It is important to fully dissolve makeup before rinsing it off.
✖ If eye and lip makeup are not thoroughly cleaned, pigment deposition can occur. Therefore, it is important to use eye and lip specific makeup removers to thoroughly clean these areas to maintain a healthy, red lip color.
✖ Do not leave makeup remover oil on your face for a long time! I know some girls will remove their makeup while taking a shower, but leaving the makeup remover on your face for a long time will dry it out and strip your skin of moisture. In addition, do not neglect the forehead, hairline, and temples when removing makeup, as failure to clean these areas thoroughly can clog pores and cause acne.
In addition to cleaning methods, there are a few other things to consider. First, make sure to regularly clean your makeup tools, such as cushion compacts and makeup brushes. If you don't clean them, they can become a breeding ground for bacteria and cause your skin to deteriorate. When applying makeup, don't pull your skin too hard and use a patting motion instead to make the base makeup adhere better and not damage the skin barrier. Also, don't use a towel to pat your face dry. Many people use a towel in the bathroom to pat their face dry, but this is like wiping your face with bacteria. It is more hygienic to use disposable facial tissue and gently pat your face, without rubbing it too much. If you have heavier makeup that day, it is recommended to use a bubble-type cleansing product to effectively remove dirt. Finally, do not wash your face with hot water, as this can make your skin sensitive and dry, leading to larger pores and other skin problems in the long run.
In addition to topical skincare products, taking skincare supplements orally helps maintain healthy skin. Collagen supplements can help maintain elasticity and radiance, address dryness, dullness, sagging, enlarged pores, and other skin problems, and also address skin problems caused by age. That's why I started taking collagen supplements early on. I've tried many different collagen supplement brands, and I prefer CURVE UP+ Collagen Tripeptide Beauty Drink. Its collagen molecules are ultra-fine, making them easier to absorb. This product is also paired with Vitamin C to enhance the composition of collagen, and it has a apple and kiwi flavor that is not at all fishy. Not only does it help maintain my skin's health, but it also helps my small wounds heal faster. Start taking it now!
