Skin Inc is a brand from Japan made with zero parabens and fragrance. From living in Singapore six years, I am very familiar with Skin Inc being a top skincare name brand. One thing I took from living in Asia, is the care and passion that women put into their skincare more than makeup. I am in the middle of New York Fashion Week, running around between fashion events, pop up parties, photo booths and my own makeup artist work, I must look my best and this starts with Skin Inc Glam Like A Star Kit. Currently, I am using the Skin Inc Glam Like A Star Kit. The Glam Like A Star Kit is, simply put a mini facial treatment to achieve luminous and deeply hydrated skin.
As a professional makeup artist, I fully understand the importance of radiant skin BEFORE any makeup is applied. Before I do any makeup, skincare comes first. And honestly, when clients ask me for makeup advice, my question is the same one, “Tell me, what is your skincare routine?”. Before I give advice on makeup, your own skincare rituals need to be in place for any makeup to look good. Most of the talent I work with has good skin but guess what? Just like they exercise and eat well, models/ celebrities take care of their skin. I get many compliments on my skin at the age of 41 and I gotta tell you I take very good care of it.
Best put, the way to prep your skin starts with a deep cleanse done minimally 2-3 a week, ideally at night so that on a good night of rest, the skin can renew itself and look radiant the next day. Skin Inc’s Pure Revival Peel is an award-winning non-abrasive peel that visibly but gently removes dullness and dead skin cells. I start with my regular cleanser first and then use Skin Inc’s Pure Revival Peel, all over my face, focusing on my most troubled areas, the nose and cheeks. The peeling effect removes dead skin cells, cleanses dirt and will take care of clogged pores and impurities. Once I am done in this step, I am ready for the next step – HYDRATION.
When it comes to hydration, I have to do a lot of work on this front, for dry skin treating it is all about a faithful AND daily skin-care regimen. Currently, I do two layers of moisturizers and am relying heavily on overnight treatments like Skin Inc’s Pure Deepsea Hydrating Mask. This deep hydration mask is rich in ingredients like Hyaluronic Acid, Soy Bean extract and Okinawa deep sea water, perfect for repair and adding an extra layer of moisture. The best way to treat dehydrated skin is to leave this mask overnight and wake up radiant with dewy skin. This is how ANY makeup will look glorious, by deep cleansing and using a hydrating mask overnight.
Check out the finished product, radiant and luminous skin! (See photos with makeup on). I purposely documented each step of the way, from before applying, after I washed off Skin Inc’s Pure Revival Peel, and also once the Skin Inc Pure Deepsea Hydrating Mask dried (I let it settle into my skin because I wanted the extra moisture), to the final product with makeup on.
Thanks to the Beauty Council for this opportunity.
