4 Simple Steps To The Perfect Complexion

natural skin care

In the twenty-first century, it can be all too easy to become seduced by the perfectly filtered selfies adorning Instagram. Amaro, Holga, and Lo-Fi filters are now applied to every vista, view, and portrait to create something almost unattainable. These individuals don’t really have blemish-free olive skin as they enjoy their sickeningly relaxing holidays in an exotic location. However, they may have a crafty skin care regime up their sleeves. You don't need to use the most expensive creams in the world, and you don't have to be hunched over a mirror for hours at a time. So long as you realize that there is nothing wrong with embracing your imperfections, you can create the perfect complexion for you. Take a look at how you can follow these four simple steps to a perfect complexion.


If you are struggling with a spotty, overly greasy or rash-laden skin, it might be time to seek medical help. No amount of lotions and potions will aid the recovery of your complexion. Instead, head to your local surgery and secure yourself some acne treatment or medicated moisturizer whether this is a cream or ointment. Only when a dermatologist has sorted out any medical issues you may have, can you truly begin to hone your skin.


Before you begin to exfoliate and condition, you need to prepare your skin. Every day you should be drinking at least eight glasses of water to remain hydrated. This also prevents dryness of your skin. Apply a facial primer to smooth the surface of the skin. This can help cover your irregular pores and provide the perfect smoothness on which to apply your conditioning products and makeup.


Smoothing your skin doesn’t just mean creating the perfect sleek surface on which to apply your beauty products. You also need to create a blank canvas in terms of hue and tone. If you do suffer from blemishes or you have the odd red blotch, now is the time to apply some concealer or foundation. The liquid variety can give a more consistent and smoother finish. Start with a pea-sized amount on your cheeks and gently rub this in towards your forehead, jawline and across the bridge of your nose. You are not creating another thick layer of color. You are merely allowing the natural glow of your radiant skin to shine through.


Use a powder that matches your skin tone to enhance your complexion. For a more natural look, begin in the center of your face and move outwards with a firm, thick bristle brush. Be measured in your approach and don’t use too much. There’s nothing worse than seeing a clear line on the jawline and noticing two distinct colors mismatched on your neck and your face. You want to enhance your natural tone, not create a mask. The powder you choose should help illuminate your features.

Creating the perfect complexion can seem complicated. However, by following this guide, you should be able to hone your tone and whip up those perfect Instagram selfies.
