Using the right beauty product for your skin type is important to create a fresh natural appearance as well as to prevent reactions such as allergies with resulting rashes and itching. As such you have to be careful with the type of beauty product you decide to use for your skin. Here are some tips to help you look your best:
Do not use harsh or dry cleanser
Avoid harsh or drying cleansers, as well as greasy cleansers since either extreme, will react unfavourably with your skin type. The best skin cleanser regardless of the skin type is a water-soluble cleanser that is gentle on the skin.
Consider your skin tone when selecting beauty
Even if the particular type of beauty product is just right for your skin type, choosing the wrong colour–one which is either too light or too dark will make the cosmetics less than attractive. Select cosmetics that complement and match your skin tone and minor imperfections in skin tone and texture will disappear.
Invest in quality makeup
Cheap makeup can cake or slide on your skin and isn’t as likely to blend. It is more likely to sit on the surface, giving a plastic look. Look for good quality cosmetics that aren’t necessarily expensive. It’s better to invest in yourself by purchasing quality makeup that you know looks great with your skin type.
Use beauty products that are strictly for sensitive skin
Look for products that are labelled specifically for use with sensitive skin and avoid fragrances in your cosmetic products. Non-allergenic is another phrase to look for on the labels. The key is to avoid anything with high dye levels or preservatives.
For oily skin, try using an oil-free primer before applying a matte type foundation that won’t clog your pores. Loose powder has fewer oils than pressed powder. Blot the skin periodically throughout the days to remove any shine. Avoid creams for eyeshadow or mascara and creamy style lip pencils.
