Makeup is out, bare skin is in

Makeup is out, bare skin is in

21 October 2014

As the winter weather begins to set in, it’s all about lashings of foundation and concealer as we battle the elements – but apparently this season’s trend is all about baring the skin, as we go au naturel.

So how can we achieve this look? With careful preparation, of course. By following a strict cleansing Skin Care routine, you won’t have to worry about your flaws - and instead, you’ll be flaunting your clear complexion in no time!

Cleansing is an integral part of keeping the skin smooth and clean, and while there are several suggested ways of cleansing, there are three recommended options:


  • Gel cleanser

This lifts the dirt and oil engrained in our faces, with the gel melting into a cleansing oil that thins out enough to get into those hard-to-reach pores. Additionally, several gel cleansers are infused with scented oils – such as daisy and lemon – leaving you feeling fresh and floral!

  • Micellar water

Gaining immense popularity this year, many a beauty blogger has been raving about the benefits of micellar water. Designed to tackle the effects of hard water in Paris, this is the ideal swift solution for when you’re in a hurry!

  • No rinse formula cleansing oil

Got dry skin that could do with some much-needed nourishment? Then this is the cleanser for you – just massage it into your face then wipe away with a microfiber cloth. Simple!
