These days, it’s all about showing off gorgeous skin that’s not covered up under piles of makeup. No filters necessary! But how exactly can you achieve skin that’s worthy of not using a filter (or tons of makeup) on it? The key to maintaining a gorgeous complexion sans makeup is following a consistent skin care routine including skin care products like facial cleanser and moisturizer. Ready to get started? Keep reading for a skin care routine that can help you achieve no filter skin. Then get to posting a few no filter selfies on all your social media channels.
1. Wash Your Face
The first step in your skin care routine (morning and night) should be washing your face, as this can help rid the surface of your skin of pore-clogging dirt, oils, and makeup. Try the L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Detox & Brighten Cleanser, L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Purify & Mattify Cleanser, or L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Exfoliate & Refine Cleanser. Squeeze your facial cleanser of choice into your hands and add water to transform it from clay to mousse. Gently massage the facial cleanser onto your face, then rinse off thoroughly with lukewarm water and pat dry. Each of these facial cleansers can help rid the surface of your skin of impurities without over-drying your complexion.
2. Use a Face Scrub
Three times a week, exfoliate with a face scrub to help maintain the appearance of clear, smooth skin. Exfoliation can help rid the surface of your skin of dulling dead skin cell buildup. A sugar scrub is a nice gentle exfoliation option. Choose from the L’Oréal Paris Pure-Sugar Smooth & Glow Face Scrub, L’Oréal Paris Pure-Sugar Nourish & Soften Face Scrub, and L’Oréal Paris Pure-Sugar Purify & Unclog Face Scrub. Apply a small amount of face scrub to dry skin, then add water to exfoliate and rinse the face scrub off thoroughly with lukewarm water.
3. Get Familiar with Face Masks
Another skin care product you can use two or three times a week is a face mask. Face masks are great because they can target specific skin care concerns, like oiliness and dullness. Have your pick from the L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Detox & Brighten Face Mask, L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Purify & Mattify Face Mask, L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Exfoliate & Refining Face Mask, L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Clear & Comfort Face Mask, and L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Clarify & Smooth Face Mask. Smooth a small amount of face mask onto clean, dry skin, leave it on for 10-15 minutes, then rinse off thoroughly with lukewarm water and pat dry.
After cleansing, exfoliating, or masking, moisturizer is key to help keep your skin looking glowing. Look for a moisturizer that’s formulated for your skin type. Try the L’Oréal Paris Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care for Normal/Oily Skin, L’Oréal Paris Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care for Normal/Dry Skin, or L’Oréal Paris Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care for Extra Dry Skin. Each of these moisturizers is formulated with hyaluronic acid and aloe vera water to help provide long-lasting hydration. Smooth your moisturizer of choice over your face—and don’t forget about your neck!
5. Keep Your Makeup Light
Last but not least, apply a little bit of makeup for no filter skin. Skip the foundation and opt for a sheer highlighter lotion, like the L’Oréal Paris True Match™ Lumi Glotion Natural Glow Enhancer, to up your glow and enhance your beautiful features. It comes in five shades, so you can easily find the one that blends into your skin tone best. Brush your eyebrows with the L’Oréal Paris Brow Stylist Boost & Set Brow Mascara, apply a coat of the L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara, and top your look off with the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Shine Lipstick in the shade of your choosing (you have 16 to pick from!).
