A transition in regimen to combat seasonal variations
Revert to the essentials and keep your look dewy as heat wanes in the tropics
Wake up and feel fresh by rinsing your face with cold water in the morning or by rubbing your face with ice. This tightens your pores, helps keep your face oil- free, and prevents your skin from sweating throughout the day. It also keeps your makeup on longer. After drying, I suggest using Lush Tea Tree Water Toner for oily, dull or blemish- prone skin. It helps keep an oil- free face without drying.
Lock in moisture
Moisturizing and putting on sunblock is important, even on cloudy and rainy days. If your moisturizer is thick and creamy, I suggest using a lighter moisturizer to keep oiliness at bay. If you find that your moisturizer causes your skin to become a bit oily within 30 minutes of application, make sure you find another one that gives your skin just enough moisture without causing it to dry.
It’s better to apply light makeup during the rainy days. Use light foundation as the base and finish with loose powder. For longer- lasting blush and eye shadow throughout a humid day, use cream- based products. Unlike powdered- based ones, cream- based makeup does not smudge and fade away as easily.
Avoid raccoon eyes by going light with your eyeliner as well as your mascara. Make sure you test their waterproof abilities before you buy. If you must wear heavy eyeliner, carry around a small bottle of face cream and cotton buds in your purse for emergencies. You can put some cream at the tip of a cotton bud and use it to wipe away any smudged eyeliner or mascara.
For the perfect finish, spray Urban Decay De-Slick Oil-Control Makeup Setting Spray on your face. It keeps your skin oil-free and prevents your makeup from smudging.
