By now, you all probably that I use myself as the model for all my work(s). I do my best to stick with my life events and experiences because I know my own story better. When it comes to skin care and make up, it is no different because, I have being on a wear foundation everyday trial and error and the result of my findings, I will share with you in this post.
Precisely on the 15th of January, I decided I wanted to try out what wearing foundation everyday will do to my skin. So I have been wearing foundation everyday since then except Saturdays because I laze in / do house work on Saturdays except if I have meetings or appointments.
Since doing that, I discovered that wearing foundation everyday will break you out is a “house wive tale”. House wife tale means it is not totally correct but something people just came up with.
What Experiments Did I do
I am currently wearing the Teint Idole Ultra 24hr foundation and Like I said, I have been wearing it everyday. So here’s what I do:
1, Prep my skin:
step 1: wash or cleanse | Step 2: tone or clarify | Moisturize
2, Apply Primer
I also use the Teint – Idole foundation primer
3, Apply my Foundation
I use the Mac studio fix- it is a powder + foundation
4, Set it with setting spray
I use the mac’s fix plus.
I then go about my daily business till later in the night.
Why Am I Not Breaking Out
I used to think like so many people that wearing foundation everyday will make you break out. No, it is not correct. So here is what I do at night:
1, Remove make up thoroughly at night. Never go to bed with make up on no matter how tired you are. You can check HERE for how I care for my skin on a lazy night or when I am tired
2, Wash face with mild face wash
3, Tone or clarify to remove make up residue or left over make up
4, Moisturize loads. I use way more moisturize at night. It makes the skin soft in the morning.
A Boost For the Skin
What I really do differently is that I exfoliate the skin every second day. This leaves my skin clear and clog free. I use the the Clinique prep-start to do this. It is a cleanser and exfoliator. Please USE ANY EXFOLIATOR OF YOUR CHOICE!
Secondly, I drink tonnes and tonnes of water. Drink up people! 🙂
Other things to Consider
1, It may be that my foundation of choice is good. Don’t worry, I am not advertising any brand here, just saying. Please to be sure to choose the right foundation, check this post HERE for for things to know before you choose your foundation.
2, It may also be that the skin care routine I follow is good. They are the listed above.
3, Never forget that our skin will react differently to different things. Always do what works for you.
So there you have it, if your life style involves wearing foundation everyday, don’t let that little house tale stop you. Try those simple steps I shared above and see what you come up with.
