Exfoliating Before Makeup: A Fresh Canvas for Flawless Application

Exfoliation, the secret step in your makeup routine, can dramatically change how your foundation and concealer sit on your skin. As we age, our skin’s natural exfoliation process slows down, leading to a buildup of dead cells that can make our complexion look dull and makeup appear cakey. By incorporating gentle exfoliation into your skincare routine, you can ensure a smoother, more even application of makeup.

Choose a method that suits your skin type: chemical exfoliants like AHAs or BHAs for oily and combination skin, or a soft physical exfoliator for sensitive skin. Remember, the key is gentle exfoliation. Overdoing it can lead to irritation and redness.

Exfoliate a night before a big event to give your skin time to settle. Follow up with a hydrating moisturizer to nourish the fresh skin cells. The next morning, you’ll notice how effortlessly your makeup glides on, giving you a more youthful and radiant finish.
