When it comes to beauty products of any kind, I have tried them all. In my midst of my quest, a few of the winners have stood out. The ones I go back to get….and back….and back to buy after the fact.
Mascara: I was always on the lookout for mascara that stayed on all day without leaving any marks around my eyes. Realizing you look like a raccoon late in the evening is never flattering. I found the secret when I was shopping in Whole Foods. All natural mascara. No chemicals. Stays on your lashes all day. When you wash your face at night, it comes off easily. Best of all, it looks bold and beautiful on your lashes.
*Try: Whole Foods Zulu luxe mascara, onyx
Face Wash: The worst thing past puberty is having an outbreak when you’re an adult. It’s embarrassing. The absolute best face wash out there is antibacterial. It has a stronger affect on your skin. If you wash once a day with this type of face wash, you will not have any more pimples. It keeps your face clean and wards off blemish causing bacteria.
*Try: Noxzema Triple Clean Antibacterial Lathering Cleanser
Astringent: After using the above face wash, your face will be left dry. The next way to ward off unexpected guests on your face is to use an astringent that has salicylic acid in it. Salicylic acid penetrates your follicles, exfoliates dead skin cells, and helps keeps your pores crystal clear.
*Try: Clean and Clear Deep Cleaning Astringent (2.0 % salicylic acid)
Foundation: To keep your skin tone even, everyone needs a little artificial help! What your looking for is that magical combination that provides SPF to protect your skin from the suns damaging rays and one that is oil free and will not clog your pores. When it comes to powder foundations, you want one that will compliment your skin tone. One that is light to spread on and leaves you looking natural. Why not just shoot for the stars? What would be best is if the foundation itself also had a little glimmer in it to leave a small sparkle on your skin. You guessed it: Neutrogena is Santa Clause for your face.
