If like most women you apply makeup on a daily basis, what you are doing is basically clogging your pores. Makeup and skincare
go hand in hand, as your makeup will only look as good as the skin underneath it.

The Basics of Make-Up and Skincare
On behalf of TVLesson.com my name is Miriam Behar. I’m a license aesthetician, makeup artist and certified lash stylist in South Florida.
Let’s talk a little bit about skin care. When you're wearing makeup or choosing not to wear makeup, makeup and skincare go hand in hand because your skin can only look as good as how you take care of it. And also when you apply makeup, your makeup can only look as good as the skin that’s underneath.
So, some steps in taking care of your skin, the very basic steps would be cleanse, tone, exfoliate and moisturize. So basically in the morning, you should cleanse your skin with a good pH balanced skin cleanser, not soap because soap is too acidic and it strips your skin of its natural moisture. So, you should clean with a gentle cleanser. You can at this point choose to exfoliate or not depending on your needs.
That is to use some kind of a gentle facial scrub with granules that break down as you use them. And then remove that. You can also exfoliate with warm water and a wash cloth on your face. And then you want to apply your toner. This should also be pH balance to not to dry your skin and it should be alcohol-free. And then you want to moisturize. If this is for daytime, you want to moisturize with something that has sun protection factor because this is going to help your skin not to age prematurely. And if it's for nighttime, you want to apply something that’s going to not have an SPF factor and something that is going to help your skin to renew itself while you're sleeping because your skin repairs itself while you’re sleeping.
So, when you're choosing products to use for oily skin, you want to look for the key words oil free, nonacnegenic, noncomedogenic because this means that it has been proven not to clog your pores and cause breakouts, which is an important concern. And for dry skin or sensitive skin, I would look for a sensitive skin formula or a fragrance-free sensitive skin formula. For oily skin, all cream should be a gel formulation otherwise they’ll be too greasy. But for dry skin, you can use something that’s a little bit richer and a little bit heavier because your skin needs it.
