The first thing you can do is practice eating healthy. Then, of course you should be practicing good hygiene. Once your skin is nice and clean make sure you have a good moisturizing routine. Making sure you take good care of your skin will be helpful in making sure you have beautiful skin. I’m going to show you how to achieve a natural and finished complexion in only minutes. I’ll start off by showing image2you how to prepare your skin. You are going to need a few products and they are an eye cream and a moisturizer for your skin type with an SPF of at least 15. This investment will be very worth it in the long run. The first step is just putting a little of the eye cream product on the back of my hand and just lightly dapping my ring finger into it and using that to feather it around the eye. I use this finger because it has the least pressure, making sure it’s not too harsh on the eyes. Make sure you also apply some of the eye cream on top of the eyes as well. Once you’re done one side just move onto the other so you image3have more equal time for the cream to absorb into the skin and you don’t waste any product you’ve pumped onto the back of your hand. While applying you should be making a gentle tapping motion under the eye while looking up and over the eye while having it closed.

Now let’s move onto the facial moisturizer.  Just like you put a dab of the eye moisturizer on the back of your hand, you will do the same with this. So go ahead and add some to your hand then with your middle finger gently rub the moisturizer in a circular motion against gravity onto your face. On my model today I’m using a great moisturizer with a little bit of lifting antioxidants image4which help it to brighten the skin and smooth out any lines and imperfections on the skin. I’m going to start off applying it on her cheek then I’ll switch to the other cheek to get that side done and down to the chin where I’ll just dab it on lightly. Now I’m going to apply it to the nose as evenly as possible making sure that I get it really well.  Using a moisturizer with at least an SPF of 15 helps protect your skin from the sun’s rays which are very damaging. If your moisturizer doesn’t contain a sunscreen try to use a separate sunscreen over top of that to keep your skin from being burned.  Then put a little bit of moisturizer on the forehead and rub that in gently. That is how you prepare your skin for any makeup you might be applying. The next step would be applying concealer if you’re doing a full face of makeup. Use these steps in your routine and your skin will be radiant.
