MA Beauty Insider: Three Simple Steps for a Celestial Complexion

Saturday, February 22, 2014

 

The night sky is still brooding and winter dark but you can get your skin ethereal and spring-rosy starting right now. Get a head start here:

Polish

A smooth light-reflective surface is necessary for carefree makeup application but dry winds and frigid temperatures may have left you with a dull ashy surface. Remake it with gentle exfoliation. For ultimate polish, try a mask or a grainy scrub. You choose which, as long as the goal is to remove dead cells and flakes and reveal skin as soft as…well, a gentle spring breeze.

Freeman Feeling Beautiful Facial Peel-Off Cucumber Mask peels away greyness and brings back springtime freshness. For more information or to purchase, click here.

Moisturize

Next up – a hydrating cream to sink into your newly refined skin and bring it back to life. Use gentle pressure and massage it all over, including throat and décolleté. No more winter-weariness – you’ll exhale a sigh of comfort and relief at last.

Makeup

Now that you’ve got great skin again, don’t go full throttle on cover-up. Let a neutral airy foundation give you a light-gathering natural look. Nobody does illumination better than Laura Mercier. Its tinted moisturizer is a cult classic with a colossal following. It creates an unbiased canvas that simply put, looks as renewed as the longed-for spring landscape. Add a creamy blush in a twinkling color to extend the light-giving glow.

Winter may have more dark nights in store for us and spring may still be a dream away, but creating a heavenly complexion knows no season. Bring on the light.
