How to Achieve Flawless Skin Without Using Foundation

Makeup is undoubtedly a secret weapon for sporting beautiful skin. Whether you’re struggling with spots, redness or dark spots, foundation can hide a multitude of complexion problems. But, what if you don’t enjoy wearing foundation or you want to have a no makeup day? How can you achieve flawless skin without using foundation? Check out our favourite tips.

Drink more water

Water is incredible for promoting a clear complexion. As well as helping to flush out toxins from your body, water also keeps you hydrated, ensuring your skin is soft, smooth and nourished.

Eat your greens

A healthy, balanced diet is the best way to get nutrients. Dark, leafy greens as well as sweet potatoes, berries, nuts and oily fish will help to make your complexion luminous. If you’re a vegan, vegetarian or don’t like eating certain foods, try adding a supplement to your daily diet.

Exfoliate

The most effective way to add radiance to your skin is by removing dead skin cells. This can be achieved via exfoliation. Eliminating dead skin cells helps to smooth your complexion, brighten and promote an even skin tone. Try using a chemical exfoliator like glycolic acid or try a treatment like microdermabrasion which gently removes dead and dry skin by suction.

Moisturise

Moisturising your skin is essential for any type of complexion. Even oily and blemished skin types require constant moisture to prevent dehydration. Use a moisturiser aimed at targeting your problem areas, so if you have mature skin, try a firming moisturiser with retinol to help smooth fine lines and wrinkles.

Avoid the sun

Sun damage is one of the worst things you can do to your skin. If you’re going out in the sun, apply a high SPF and wear a sun hat to protect your face and scalp from sunburn.

How long do you have to wait in between microdermabrasion treatments?

Skin concerns like pigmentation, acne, scarring, and uneven skin tone all need a consistent and regular treatment plan to achieve the best results. Read on to find out why this 7-10 day window is important.
