Beautiful Skin in 6 Easy Steps
Aiming to achieve flawless, radiant, jealousy-inducing skin? frockadvisor’s got you covered. We are all guilty of lusting over the perfectly photoshopped skin of our favourite celebrities in magazines, we run down our 6 fool proof steps to achieving beautiful skin that rivals the celebs.
Step 1: Deep CleaningCleansing and toning are a thing of the past. Their successor? Micellar Water. This Micellar Water from La Roche-Posay soothes, cleanses, removes makeup and tackles impurities. The formula is soap-free, paraben-free, colourant-free and alcohol-free. The 100% hypoallergenic skin care is ideal for sensitive skin and is enriched with La Roche-Posay Thermal Spring Water.
Step 2: ExfoliateWe love the Clarisonic Mia 2 Cleansing System here at frockadvisor HQ. The brush deep cleanses the face, up to 6 times better than cleansing by hand. With 300 brush movements per second, the brush gently exfoliates the skin making it appear smoother and more radiant. Clarisonic Cleansing Brushes are suitable for all skin types.
Step 3: HydrateHydration is an essential step in the quest to achieve beautiful skin. We suggest hydrating before bed with Clinique’s Moisture Surge Overnight Mask. The oil-free, creamy mask boosts moisture, while nourishing and soothing the skin. We recommend using the product once daily to achieve soft, dewy, glowing, beautiful skin.
Step 4: Use a Day CreamEvery daily skin routine should include a day cream. We love Lancôme’s Visionnaire Cream. The multi-correcting cream tackles multiple signs of aging, correcting the appearance of wrinkles and the skin’s texture. Visionnaire also improves the appearance of pores. The formula, which contains LR2412 and hyaluronic acid, was designed to correct the appearance of skin and has been clinically proven to do so. Visionnaire Cream hydrates and illuminates the skin, while also making it appear more plump and smooth.
Step 5: IlluminateWe swear by Clarins Beauty Flash Balm to rejuvenate tired or stressed skin. The formula contains olive and witch hazel extracts which make the skin appear smoother. It also contains bisabolol which both soothes and restores luminosity, making skin appear younger. Beauty Flash Balm not only moisturises, but also tightens facial contours which aids in creating a rested or relaxed appearance. The formula also diminishes fine lines and wrinkles and is the perfect primer before foundation. Beautiful skin in a flash, Clarins Beauty Flash Balm is a MUST-HAVE for every woman’s skin care routine.
Step 6: Fake it!Sometimes, even the greatest skin routine just wont do the trick. Thankfully though, we have Vichy Dermablend Corrective Foundation for those days when our skin unexpectedly flares up. Dermablend offers complete, long lasting coverage with a 25% pigment concentration, meaning that its coverage is twice that of your average foundation. The formula has a lightweight finish meaning that the foundation creates a natural, even skin tone, concealing imperfections while avoiding the cakiness often associated with high-coverage foundations. Vichy Dermablend Corrective Foundation lasts up to 12 hours and can even stretch to 16 hours, long-lasting wear, when paired with Vichy Dermablend Setting Powder. Dermablend is perfect for disguising redness, irregular skin tone, pigmentation disorders, dark circles, acne, enlarged pours and minor acne scars; making it the perfect product for faking beautiful skin.
