Pre-Makeup Routine: Your Step-by-Step Guide to Glowing Skin

If your skin is looking dull and lifeless lately, don’t fret: it’s easy to get back your glow! A four step pre-makeup routine is all you need to prep your skin before you put makeup on to ensure that your skin emits a gorgeous glow. Here’s how:

STEP 1: Exfoliate Daily

If dead skin is sitting under makeup, the skin will appear dull and sometimes flaky if it’s really dry.  Exfoliating daily also helps skincare products soak into your skin and will help you get maximum results.  Choose a gentle exfoliator and buff your skin in circular motions. This will also stimulate blood flow in your face.

STEP 2: Apply a Vitamin C serum to your whole face.  Vitamin C is full of enzymes and antioxidants — these help fade sunspots and plump up your skin for a youthful look.
