When celebrities take to bare faces and share a no makeup selfie, it sparks a trend. In this case – unlike wacky baby names or buzz cuts ¬– it may be a celebrity trend worth partaking in. At least from time-to-time, it can be beneficial for your skin’s health overall to take a break from concealer, foundation and the like. The trick is, however, to still look good with no makeup. Whether you plan to take a no makeup selfie yourself or simply want to give your face a break from primer and powder one lazy Sunday – here are the skin care tips to still look radiant without all of the hassle.
No makeup tip #1. Drink water. Start your makeup-free time with a glass of water and keep sipping throughout the day. Your skin needs water to stay hydrated from the inside out. It’s easy for skin to become dehydrated, as it will inevitably lose moisture throughout the day.
No makeup tip #2. Plan meals with your skin in mind. Skin healthy foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids, beta-carotene and antioxidants can boost your natural glow and help keep skin looking hydrated and bright. Work salmon, nuts, dark leafy greens and orange-y fruits and veggies into your daily diet to reap the benefits on those days when you want to take a naturally radiant-looking no makeup selfie.
No makeup tip #3. Exercise before heading out. Bring a natural radiance to your skin by getting your blood pumping. Jump rope, go for a jog around the block or strike a yoga pose before running errands or meeting up with friends. Your elevated heart rate and increased blood circulation will bring subtle color and oxygen to your skin – helping you to look awake and vital without any makeup.
No makeup tip #4. Cleanse your skin. Clean skin is the best base for beautiful skin without makeup. Wash your face with gentle circular motions and tepid water. Pat your face dry to avoid any unnecessary skin irritation.
No makeup tip #5. Apply moisturizer as a highlighter. While your highlighting powder is off limits, you can achieve a similar effect by applying extra moisturizer or day cream to your cheekbones, Cupid’s bow, and under your brow bone. This will help the areas reflect light and help your skin attain a natural lustrous glow. RevitaLift® Moisture Blur uses Opti-Blur™ technology that defuses light for a blurring effect that minimizes the look of wrinkles, fine lines and the size of your pores.
No makeup tip #6. Don’t skip SPF. Never spend a day outside – or indoors if you’ll be around a lot of windows – without applying sunscreen. Avoiding the possible damage that can be done to your skin, like premature aging, is worth the essential skin care step. Look for a sunscreen formulated for your face so that it won’t clog your pores and apply it at least thirty minutes before sun exposure. . Sublime Sun Advanced Sunscreen Liquid Silk Lotion for Face SPF 30’s lightweight formula has UVA and UVB protection and is water resistant.
No makeup tip #7. Curl eyelashes. You can open up your eyes and help them look wider without having to swipe on mascara. Work your way out from the inner corner of your lash line and hold each section in-between the eyelash curler for ten seconds.
No makeup tip #8. Brush brows. Profound brows are still a beauty staple at the moment; so don’t ignore them. Simply brushing and shaping the hairs can help your brows look perfectly put together without having to use a pencil or powder.
No makeup tip #9. Smack on some lip balm. Cracked lips won’t make for a flawless finish, apply a hydrating balm to your pout to seal in moisture and help your lips look plumper.
No makeup tip #10. Dab facial oil. Apply facial oil as a final step to seal in moisture and keep out harmful environmental pollutants. . Age Perfect® Hydra-Nutrition – Facial Oil SPF 30 further shields your skin with broad-spectrum protection. It will also bring a radiant glow to your skin, leaving it looking and feeling hydrated and healthy.
Days without makeup may become a more regular part of your routine – it can be liberating to take on the world fresh-faced and ready for a no makeup selfie. Your healthy skin and natural beauty will shine through – no makeup necessary.
