We all know how important a smooth base is when it comes to makeup application. It keeps us from having creases and splotches on our faces, and there wouldn't be zits and blackheads for our foundation to get stuck to. Here are some skincare habits you can adopt in order to achieve a more flawless makeup look:
1. Make sure to double-cleanse.
Clean It Zero Classic, P890
Before you even reach for your facial wash, use an oil or balm cleanser like Banila Co. Clean It Zero to get rid of makeup, dirt, and other gunk on your face.
2. Exfoliate your skin to keep it at its smoothest.
Hi Bye Vita-Peel Clear Pad, P950; Hi Bye Vita-Peel Exfoliating Scrub, P625; Hi Bye Clean Up Blackhead Stick, P525
Products with alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs)—like Banila Co. Hi Bye Vita-Peel Clear Pad and Banila Co. Hi Bye Vita-Peel Exfoliating Scrub—are great for sloughing off dead skin. The latter has lemon and golden kiwifruit extracts to help invigorate and brighten up the skin. You can also get rid of your blackheads (minus the painful extraction process!) with the Banila Co. Hi Bye Clean Up Blackhead Stick.
3. Use a mask at least once a week.
Hi Bye Clean Up Mud-to-Foam Cleanser, P525
A sheet, mud, or sleep mask will do wonders for the tired skin. Apply Banila Co. Hi Bye Clean Up Mud-to-Foam Cleanser on dry skin, leave on for a minute, then rinse to form a rich lather.
4. Don't forget to moisturize!
Dear Hydration Boosting Cream, P1,250
PSA: Every skin type requires a moisturizer (yes, even oily skin!). It all comes down to choosing a product that comes with a non-sticky formula. Try Banila Co. Dear Hydration Boosting Cream, a makeup-boosting moisturizer/base that gives the skin a soft, dewy glow.
5. Bring a bottle of facial mist everywhere you go.
Dear Hydration Facial Mist, P525
We all know how hot it can be outside. A handy facial mist like Banila Co. Dear Hydration Facial Mist should be able to keep your skin and makeup fresh the whole day.
