Looking fabulous - whether you're dropping the kids off at school or are out on a date with your guy - is a must for most women. However, figuring out the best ways to steal the spotlight even when faced with a few complexion woes like blemishes, can be a struggle. Luckily, the experts at Self magazine recently discussed the best beauty products to try out now, in order to help your skin look as perfect as you feel.
Getting a pimple can totally ruin your day, especially if you have an important business meeting to attend or are planning to meet up with your new beau. Some women might immediately run to the bathroom to grab skin care products or their go-to concealers to try and hide the imperfection, but Self reports this may only deepen the damage.
Instead of dabbing concealer onto the trouble area, use a spray foundation and mist the product over your entire face. Next, take a sponge and use it to blend the foundation into your skin. If you're unable to score a spray foundation, a light cream option might be a perfect alternative. Investing in a product like the Colorescience Sheer Creme Foundation could be suitable since the product has a lightweight formula and works to nourish the skin as it blends perfectly for seamless coverage.
There is perhaps nothing worse than looking down at your nails on your way to work and seeing that your gorgeous manicure is chipping. Not only is this an eyesore, but it may also make you feel less professional or prepared for the day ahead. Combine the chipped nails with dry hands from the winter weather, and you really have a dilemma.
To avoid both of these problems, you'll want to begin with taking proper care of your hands, the news outlet reports. It's not just your complexion that can dry out during the colder months, your hands can also feel the effects, which is why you may want to invest in a hydrating product like Elemis Spa At Home Pro-Collagen Hand and Nail Cream to repair winter damages. The moisturizing product is full of powerful antioxidants that work to protect the skin from drying. Anti-aging components also work to target age spots and smooth the skin, giving them a youthful look.
When your hands are baby soft, it's time to tackle the chipping manicure. Investing in professional nail polish in one of the season's hottest trends, like CND Nail Colour - Chromes could help to ensure the polish stays in place for longer.
