1. Battling Blemishes (The Slay-Worthy Way).
Here's the tea: facing a surprise pimple before an event is practically a universal experience. But, that uninvited guest on your face doesn't mean your skin prep was in vain. It's all about how you tackle the situation.
You can leave it, and try to cover it with your make-up, or if you are determined to pop it, here's how to do it correctly:
Indulge in a steamy shower, then delicately cleanse the troubled spot with a mild cleanser. Using clean hands encircle your pimple with a cotton swab and give it a gentle squeeze until clear fluid or blood appears – no force, though! Seal the deal with a spot treatment oil or serum. 💆♀️✨🌟
2. Treat yourself to a face mask the day before an event
Hold your glitter, party planner! While face masks are your skin's BFF for prepping, let's not go crazy the night before, Keep it chill before the big day.
Why? Because going overboard might turn your face into a disco ball of inflammation, redness, and uneven vibes. Slow and steady is our skin prep anthem. Consider sliding in a vitamin C champ like our Lighten Up Brightening Serum 4-6 week pre-event to help even your skin tone.
3. Use the wrong skincare under your makeup
Party day has arrived and your skin's the canvas. The skincare you use beneath your makeup is like the secret sauce for your makeup masterpiece. It's important to play it safe and use products that counteract your main skin concerns.
Dry or sensitive? Go for products with shea butter and squalene – they're like cozy blankets for your face, locking in that precious moisture.
If you're rocking combo, oily, or blemish-prone skin, cue water-based serums and low-comedogenic oils.
4. Don't leave your lips hanging!
Imagine rocking a flawless face only to be upstaged by chapped lips. So make sure you pamper your pout before the grand event to ditch dry, chapped lips. Grab a lip scrub to slough off any unwanted flakes and follow up with a lush balm infused with shea or cocoa butter – these bad boys are like a cozy blanket for your lips.
5. Procrastination Nation
Skin health is a marathon, not a sprint. Our skin needs time for nutrients from skincare products to take affect, plus it loves consistency. A pre-event skincare routine is your golden ticket to a radiant complexion.
So, hydrate, nurture, exfoliate, treat, tan – plan ahead. Last-minute skincare chaos is the true party pooper.
6. Sleeping Beauty
Sleeping in your makeup is a huge no-no. To ensure you wake up panda-stamp-free double cleanse before bed to ensure you have so your skin can breathe and repair overnight.
Massage an oil-based cleanser onto your face to wipe makeup, reduce buildup, and draw out contaminants. Soak a washcloth in lukewarm water and apply it to your face. Heat will help open the pores and give them a good cleanse Gently wipe down the dirt and makeup using circular strokes upward with the washcloth.
Introducing your clay or foamy cleanser.
We love our Cleanse Dust powder-based cleanser. Just add a few drops of water to the powder and massage onto your face in upward, circular motions focusing on your problem areas Rinse with lukewarm water and wipe thoroughly with a soft cloth.
There you have it, party royalty! Follow these rules, and you'll sleigh every holiday soiree with ease. Cheers to a season of glow-ups and good vibes! 🌟🎉
