Makeup and makeup techniques were the topic of looking younger in part 1.  It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to know that makeup covers a multitude of sins and improves our look.  But is that all there is?  Before the makeup goes on, there are a few steps that will definitely make your skin smoother and younger looking instantly.

Cleanse Your Skin And Use Toner

First of all, your skin should be clean before you begin.  Cleaning disrupts our pH and toners are supposed to tone or bring the pH back to normal.  Most toners are full of alcohol, dyes, and perfume and continue the stripping of natural oils and moisture.  That’s why I created misting toners full of Sodium Hyaluronate that plumps and hydrates along with restorative minerals.  Dewey, moist skin looks younger than dry, dehydrated skin.

Use Corrective Serums

Corrective serums can instantly transform problem areas.  I love my Cucumber Eye Relief.  Some mornings, I wake up with these little puffy bags under my eyes. How about you?  This anti-aging serum has anti-edema and anti-darkness actives that really work.  Eyes also show wrinkles before other areas on the face because this area has the thinnest skin on the body and doesn’t have oil glands.  Squalane is the oil that our skin manufactures, but as we age that slows to a squealing halt.  Say hello to wrinkles or use Alpha-Lipoic A&E Oil made with Squalane and other anti-oxidants.   Place under eye after Cucumber Eye Relief for really young looking eyes instantly.

Use Collagen Complex

If you are over 40, you may need to consider a collagen serum like my Collagen C Complex.  I placed several actives that tighten and smooth and ultimately encourages collagen production to thicken aging skin.  Instant firming before makeup makes the skins surface really look younger.

Moisturize Your Skin

Moisturize, please.  If you do nothing else, do this.  If you don’t believe it makes a difference, just moisturize one leg and foot for a week.  I’m sure at the end of the week you will see a difference.  Imagine the benefit of consistent moisturizing with the right combination of ingredients that work especially for your skin type.  That’s why I make four different moisturizers designed to correct, hydrate and protect skin surface, which instantly improves its appearance.

Use Facial Primer

And finally, you may need a facial primer before placing makeup on your skin.  Primers usually correct imperfect skin surfaces by using fillers and compounds that fill in the gaps.  Careful attention to cleansing at night before bedtime is important, if you use primers because they can clog pores if not removed properly.  They work and they give the makeup a smoother look, again helping you look younger instantly.

Next time, I have a few more tips for looking younger in minutes.  Don’t miss the next installment unless you just don’t need to look younger or more youthful or more healthy or ….well, you know what I mean.  Is it just me or am I the only one that just loves a compliment!!!
