Apply Skin Care Products Like a Pro

skin care productsAs a licensed cosmetologist, I know how overwhelming it can be for clients both new and old to take on the responsibility of caring for their skin. After all, it’s the largest organ of the body and the one we show to the world. Luckily, once you have the right products for your skin type half of the work is done. So, buckle up beauty lovers and get ready to embark on the journey to gorgeous skin!

When it comes to applying skin care products these easy-to-follow tips will have you feeling like a pro in no time:

  1. Cleansing is the first step to any skincare regimen. Typically, we associate cleaning with scrubbing, but it’s essential to remember to be gentle. Use medium pressure circular motions with the fingertips to spread cleanser on the face, avoiding the eye area. Makeup mavens should use a separate product specifically formulated for the eye area at night to delicately remove eyeliner, mascara and eye shadow, which can be resistant.
  2. Toner refreshes the skin after cleansing. To avoid overusing your astringent, we recommend applying it to a cotton ball or pad. Always wipe in an outward motion until the cotton wipes away clean.
  3. Eye Cream is a great way to moisturize the delicate skin under your eyes, which can show signs of aging quicker than other areas. Using your ring finger, which is the gentlest, apply the product to the area from the highest point of the cheekbones to the under-eye. Work the cream lightly into your skin morning and night to keep the under-eye area happy and hydrated.
  4. Moisturizer is perfect for perking up the top layer of the skin by providing essential nourishment. Every skin type should be conditioned with an appropriate product. Moisturizer can be pressed gently into the skin in an upward and outward motion.
  5. Masks can benefit a variety of skin types. Whether you prefer to apply your mask by hand or with a brush, you should always remember to avoid the eyes, lips and hairline. Masks are meant to only be worn on the forehead, nose, cheeks and chin. If your mask has a drying effect, avoid talking or making unnecessary facial expressions, which will stretch the skin underneath. Instead, take some time to relax and enjoy the treatment.
  6. Exfoliating the skin works to remove dry, flaky debris which inhibits a radiant complexion. Face scrubs are best when a gentle rolling motion is used on the top of the skin. Remember to keep the product away from the eye area, as some face scrubs contain small particles that can cause irritation.

While it may take some getting used to, keep in mind that you should never pull, rub, or stretch the face with excessive pressure. The skin is a delicate structure that requires a gentle touch. The most important part of getting gorgeous is choosing products that are specifically formulated for your skin type. Not to brag, but Mario Badescu carries an extensive line of skincare that can benefit all skin types- from the severely dry and irritated to acneic, extremely oily and everything in between.

I'm a freelance writer, makeup artist and brow expert with nearly ten years of professional experience in the beauty industry. Eating healthy, trying new beauty products and writing personal essays are a few of my favorite things. I can usually be found roaming the magazine aisles of bookstores or sitting at the café compulsively shopping online for shoes, books, clothes, and makeup. If I went to the gym as often as I talked about wanting to start exercising, I would have a 12-pack by now. I believe that having a good skincare regimen and expertly groomed eyebrows are two cornerstones to being naturally beautiful.
