During the hotter months of the year, our skin can be oily and clogged and during colder periods it can be dry and sensitive. With the constant weather and skin changes we can find certain makeup products no longer work with our skin. However, this is often due to your skin routine and the base for your makeup. Oily and clogged skin can cause breakouts and makeup during the summer and dry skin can cause makeup to look cracked and flaky on the face within the Winter. We want to give you the tools to have a perfect base for your makeup no matter what time of year it is.
Cleansing is the first and arguably the most effective way to create an amazing base for your makeup. By cleansing morning and night you remove all the built-up grime, dirt and leftover makeup to show clean skin ready to absorb your creams, serums, and oils and create a fresh base. Don’t forget to double cleanse your skin at night to ensure the day's makeup is removed and your skin is effectively cleansed. For a deep clean try using our Dermasonic+ made from ultra-hygienic silicone and with up to 100 uses in one battery, your skin will thank you! Pair it with the Dragons Blood 3-in-1 Advanced Treatment Cleanser.
Replenish your skin at night with a hydrating night cream which works to revitalise the skin and truly give you your beauty sleep. The Dragons Blood Ultra Plumping Night Cream will help to plump your skin, reduce fine lines and wrinkles and reveal a luminous and glowing complexion perfect for makeup application.
A day cream is equally as important as a night cream as it creates a hydration barrier on your skin so makeup doesn’t absorb into your skin and clog your pores. The Dragons Blood Facial Sculpting Gel creates a second skin like film on your skin for ultimate protection from the elements. This unique formula will also keep you looking fresh and plump all day! Wear this one alone for a seamless makeup-free complexion or use it under makeup for the perfect base.
Protecting your skin from the sun is essential during all seasons of the year. Therefore a moisturiser with SPF is essential. This will absorb into your skin and give you the protection needed for your skin to stay clear from sun spots and protected from harmful UV rays. We recommend the Dragons Blood Radiance Daily Moisturiserto stop premature ageing of the skin and keep makeup application seamless.
The eye area can be problematic for many and often be the first place to dry up and show visible fine lines and wrinkle. By keeping your under eyes plump and hydrated the rest of your face will light up. EYEFIX360 is the perfect all-in-one anti-aging formula to correct 9 visible signs of ageing and instantly smooth, moisturise and nourish the skin surrounding the eyes. This treatment will leave your skin lifted and firm for a polished face.
Exfoliation is great, especially when the skin is dry and cracked and it is also great at unclogging pores and removing excess oil creating a clean and clear base. The Dermasonic+ is great for light exfoliation and can be used daily. However, if you use a harsher exfoliator make sure it is only 1-2 times per week as this process can be too abrasive on the skin when done too often.
Primer is another great way you can create a seamless base for makeup, primer truly soothes over your skin and gives a barrier between makeup and your skin so the absorption is minimal and your pores stay clear.
Finally, make sure you are picking the right foundation for your skin type! If you have oily skin pick and oil free one, with dry skin pick a foundation with added moisture or tinted moisture and so on. Most beauty stores and pharmacy staff are friendly and happy to help you pick a foundation and makeup products that will suit your skin and price range so don’t be afraid to ask for help and remember less is more!
