1. How often should I exfoliate my skin?
Your skin renews itself every 28 days, but as you age, the rate of renewal slows down. Dermatologists recommend using peels and scrubs at least once a week to lift dead skin and boost the skin's renewal process. This helps your skin absorb serums and moisturizers better, making them more effective.

2. How do I choose among the many foundation formulas out there?
Skin type is the main factor to consider. If you have oily skin, oil-free, lightweight, or powder foundation can slay shine. Normal to dry skin, on the other hand, can benefit from hydrating formulas. For those who aim for heavy coverage, cream foundations are pigmented enough to camouflage imperfections.

3. Why is there a need to use a primer/makeup base?
Primers prolong your foundation’s staying power, and they can also combat oil-production. Plus, bases can correct and diffuse imperfections, so you won’t need to layer on copious amounts of foundation.

7. How can I minimize my pores?
We can’t really shrink our pores’ actual size, but with a good skin care regimen and pore-diffusing makeup, we can refine their appearance.
