This is how I prepped my Skin for the No Makeup Look
It looks like winter in Pakistan is not going to end anytime soon.
I have been focusing on the importance of using the right skincare products ever since this season started. In winters, our skin becomes extremely dry and dull and by using the right products, we can prevent these problems.
Wedding season starts as soon as the winters arrive specially in Karachi. This time I had to attend almost 15 events and I was wearing heavy makeup almost everyday. This lead to excessive use of makeup products and I chose to go for a #nomakeup look on the days I did not have to attend any event.
Recently I did a Live session on my Facebook Group Fashion Live Pakistan where I taught how to do a #nomakeup or a daytime look by using minimum products. Let me tell you that this was the highly requested look and it was a highly interactive session. In this session, I used my favorite skincare products before starting off with my makeup. It is super important to prep your skin properly in this weather specially if you want a flawless natural look. For your ease, I decided to write this blog post and attach all the links as I was getting many queries about the skincare products and their availability.
1.PETER THOMAS ROTH CUCUMBER GEL MASK:
I started off by using this relaxing cucumber gel mask by peter thomas roth which is a detoxifying hydrator. I have a problem of dark circles and this gel mask tends to calm them down. I kept this jar in my fridge for an hour and used it. After using this product, my under eyes felt relaxed specially when I used it cold and it took away the tiredness. This is in a gel form and refreshes, cools and calms your skin. This mask can be used on the whole face as well. Apply a generous coat on clean skin. Rinse after 10 minutes with cool water. Use 2-3 times a week for better results.
This mask is easily available on the Official Facebook page of Peter Thomas Roth. The link is as follows:
The price of the full size is Rs. 4730/-
2. PETER THOMAS ROTH HUNGARIAN THERMAL WATER HEAT MASK:
In the second step, I used this Hungarian thermal water heat mask by Peter Thomas Roth. This product became my go-to product as soon as I used it. This heat mask has a creamy wax like texture and when you rub it with wet fingertips, it forms a milky texture. This mask is perfect for girls with dry skin who want some moisture. It instantly makes your skin smooth and works best when you want to prep your skin for a smooth and glowy look.
Apply this mask generously on dry skin. Massage and leave it for up to 3 minutes. Activate the flash of heat by wetting the finger tips with cool water and massage the mask onto your skin. Once the heating sensation diminishes, rinse it thoroughly.
This mask is also available on the Official Facebook Page of Peter Thomas Roth. The link is as follows:
The price of this mask is Rs. 5280/-
3. BIODERMA ATODERM ULTRA NOURISHING CREAM:
The third step was using this ultra nourishing cream by Bioderma which I have been using for a while now. This is perfect for dry weather. I have been suffering from dry patches all over my skin which happens mostly in winters. But after using this for a while, there is a drastic reduction in the patches. I use this before using makeup to prep my skin. It has a fragrance free formula which is paraben free and hypoallergenic. It is a 24 hour long lasting moisturizing cream, which is best for people with normal to dry skin. It softens your skin and guarantees excellent tolerance. You can use it twice a day and can be applied everyday. It should be applied ideally after cleansing on slightly damp skin.
The price of the 200 ml tube is Rs. 2600/- and is currently on a 10% discount which is Rs. 2340/- So grab one now!
I used all the drugstore brands to achieve the #nomakeuplook and will write a separate blog post about all the makeup products that I used. If you wish to see my Live session, join my Facebook group Fashion Live Pakistan now which is exclusively for women (www.facebook.com/groups/Fashionlive)
These products will solve your skin related problems and give a natural glow to your skin even if you are using a BB cream to go out. Always remember that it takes a few weeks to see visible difference on our skin after using good quality skincare products. So never give up after using it once. If you get allergic to any of the ingredients or the skin gets irritated, then stop using immediately.
