Finally summer is here! Well, maybe not technically but the warm weather allowed me my first beach trip of the year. There I was toes in the sand, the sun shining down on me, hands on hips, taking in a deep breath of the fresh salty air and that’s when I realized, I was not ready to be at the beach (cue fast dash back to my towel, hat, & coverup). We’ve all experienced that moment when we’ve realized that we haven’t quite prepared like we should’ve (like when you're so regretting that second bowl of ice cream as you try to squeeze into your swim suit).
Acne can be a complicated thing. I think we all know that the cause of acne can be related to many different factors such as stress, hormones, hygiene, and even genetics.
Identifying what is causing your acne is important in finding the right way to get rid of it. It may be as simple as changing your foundation or as complex as the medication you take needing to be changed. There are many different things that someone can do if they are plagued by acne, but I want to talk about some effective things that worked (and work) for me.
Recently I had a client sit in my chair for a makeup consultation. The first thing I always assess is their skin. It's no secret that great skin equals great looking makeup.
When looking at her skin I noticed fine lines around her eyes, on her cheeks, and across her forehead. She had bumpy skin all around, as well has some hyper-pigmentation (“Sunblock please!” That’s her skin screaming). There were also enlarged pores on her nose, chin, and cheeks.
