These days healthy glowing looking skin is 'in'! Overtime I had come to realize that if I would need my makeup to look fresh & radiant, last longer through the day, a well hydrated healthy skin is extrememly important!
Yes, even in humid Singapore I do lots of hydration! A well hydrated skin gives glow and allows the makeup to stay for longer hours. Sulwhasoo First Care Activiating Serum EX, this is one of my must-have with me on all my travels! It was first gifted to me six years ago by a Korean friend and today, this is already my 7th or 8th bottle! In fact, I do double this up as my toner and at times, my eye cream too if I feel my eye area is not too dry and light moisturing is sufficient.
I use to rely on eye gel for day and night. But with age, climate change and the prolong usage of makeup which dries our skin, it's crucial during night time we reward our eye area with a cream that can help reduce fine lines and nourish the tired skin. Sulwhasoo Time Treasure Renovating Eye Cream, on days when my eye areas are very dry from the prolong hours of makeup and lack of sleep, I could see an improvement of suppleness and lessen fine lines.
However I find this abit on the rich side, so depending on my skin condition I would alternate this with an eye gel. And for travelling to dry climates, this is definately my must have.
This is my fave activity using the Body Shop Twin Ball Revitiating Facial Massager in the morning and before bedtime! I'll use this over the serum, helping it to absorb better into the skin. The rolling and pinching effect actually aids in tightening the facial muscules and reduce puffiness. Especially on days when the eyes are very tired and puffy, I'll run the massanger under the eyes and its very comforting.
Foundation with hydrating and anti aging properties
I now prefer using bb cushion for it's hydrating properties especially for under my eye area. Because I realize the matt powder do set into the fine lines. Especially during my touch ups after meal times due to insufficient hydration under air con and sun exposure, using just the matt powder, the lines actually become more obvious. Laneige Anti Aging BB Cushion, their SPF 50+ PA+++ is a plus for me too. I cannot imagine slapping on more sunscreen over make up on my skin after hours under the sun!
A word of caution though, for those with oily skin or not a fan of dewy look, girls you may have to try it over the counters,
So these are just some of the products that I have been constantly repeating. I also love to mist my face throughout the day and mask every fortnightly! Maybe I'll share more about it in another article! So constant care and love for your skin will help you in reducing lots of investment over time. Begin to sow the seeds now and reap the rewards in future!
On a side note, I'm giving away a refill set of Laneige Anti Aging BB cushion (Colour 21P Pink Beige).
