Event Prep Skincare Essentials
Preparing your skin to look its best for an important event may seem out of reach, but here is my bag of tricks (and products) that can help you achieve smooth, glowing skin for your next event.
With this 2-minute exfoliating treatment, you can say bye to dull skin. This product is formulated with effective ingredients like lactic acids, fruit enzymes, aloe vera, and honey to exfoliate and nourish the skin. After using this physical and chemical exfoliator, my skin looks instantly brighter and smoother. This exfoliating treatment continues to be a staple in my skincare collection because it never disappoints.
After using acids, I almost always follow-up with a hydrating mask. This sheet mask is jam packed with vitamins, amino acids, minerals, and natural plant extracts. The consistency of the serum in this mask (a.k.a. the lotion-y goodness) is thicker than most so it coats the sheet mask incredibly well, making the application process mess-free. For an intense cooling effect, I like to place this in the fridge for 10 minutes before application. Your skin will thank you.
There’s almost nothing more luxurious than gold hydra-gel eye patches. These eye patches de-puff, hydrate, and smooth the under-eye area, making it appear brighter and more lifted. When the under-eye area is hydrated, concealer and powder (if you choose to apply makeup) will also look more hydrated and natural. You’ll definitely look and feel like you had a good night’s rest.
I’ve never understood the hype behind this moisturizer until I tried it after picking it up during my trip to Paris last summer. I have to say the proof is in the pudding. This moisturizer is perfect for the morning because it provides just the perfect amount of hydration without feeling heavy or greasy on the skin. The finish of this moisturizer is slightly tacky, which allows makeup to adhere to the skin better.
