'SKINspiration' for Summer In Sussex


Fresh and radiant-looking skin is what most of us try to achieve on a daily basis but pulling it off without looking tired and oily is harder than it seems. 

You can apply as much makeup as you want, but if your skin is dry and dull, you won’t get the dewy result you’re aiming for.

Thus, before you even begin with the makeup application stage, start from the inside. Our skin acts as a drawing board for potential imbalances occurring in our bodies and training your eye to look out for them is the best places to start.

Have you got dry skin no matter how thick you lather on the moisturiser? You'll need to be drinking more water. Suddenly breakout during the month when you usually don't? Consider the foods you're eating.

Equally as important is your skincare regime. We find that a one time visit (if you aren't a facial fiend) to a facialist can do wonders. Not only do you get a wonderful facial treatment but you'll also receive advice on a tailored skincare regime you can follow. Along with the facialist's suggestions, our favourite moisturiser for dry skin is Eucerin's Replenishing Face Cream 5% Urea, for neutral skin Clinique's Moisture Surge™ 72-Hour Auto-replenishing Hydrator, and Dermalogica's mediBac clearing™ Oil Free Matte SPF 30 tops our list of must-haves for oily skin. 

Once you've got the diet and skincare routine nailed, you can begin with the make up application process.
