Facial mist is an important beauty essential for most Asian celebrities. They use this mist to hydrate, add more nutrients and mineral to the skin, they use this mist consistently. Create your own mist by taking an empty spray bottle. Take one part mineral water and one part essential oil. Pick the right essential oil that will benefit your skin type. Spray it on your face every few hours. Don’t worry about it removing your makeup. The mist can actually keep your makeup lasting longer.
Hydration is an important part of Asian skin care. Keeping your skin hydrated prevents wrinkles and fine lines. Foundation can cut down hydration of your skin, since it blocks the pores from absorbing moisture. Create a foundation that can still hydrate your skin and give you the coverage you need. Blend on part hydrating serum, two part oil free foundation and one part mineral oil. Apply facial mist on your face and wait for it to dry. Apply your foundation using a foundation brush or sponge. Use gentle strokes to apply the foundation. Keep your strokes towards the direction of your hair growth, this will help the makeup adhere to the skin. After this spray another spritz of facial mist before putting on the rest of your makeup.
Drinking Lots of Water
Get that healthy glow on your skin by keeping your whole body hydrated. Drink plenty of water and make it a habit to splash your face with cold water every few minutes. Another important hydrating tip is to lessen the consumption of high sodium food. This type of food can cause water retention and bloating. Opt for fruits and vegetables to keep your skin looking youthful and smooth.
A Consistent Skin Care Regimen
It’s important to perform your entire skin care routine every day and apply it consistently. Besides consistent application, Asian celebrities have their own ways of application to help improve the potency of their products.
The 424 technique is when you cleanse your face with cleansing oil for 4 minutes, followed with a foaming cleanser for two minutes and lastly 4 minutes of rinsing. When rinsing your face use cold water to close your pores.
Instead of rubbing your toner all of your face, use the tapping method. Use your fingertips to apply the toner and tap it all over your skin. This will help with absorption and help you use less product.
Before putting the moisturizer on your hands, rub them together. The heat from your hands allows for better absorption. Apply the moisturizer from the middle of your face downward and outward. This type of application can help keep the face muscles firm.
Face Mask, Sheets or Packs
This seems to be a favorite in the Asian community. A lot of celebrity vouch for the efficiency of a good face mask. Using a face mask everyday can help nourish the skin, reduce puffiness, lock in moisture, cleanse and lighten the skin.
It’s important to apply the same products you apply in your face to your neck. The skin in your neck is sensitive and need all the help it can get.
