Our face tells the world a lot, and we want it to be a beautiful story. According to, celebrity makeup artist Jamie Greenberg says, “Skincare is half the battle when it comes to a makeup look.” We look to different foundations to help us achieve that flawless skin we all desire far too often. Sure, the foundation you use will help in achieving a beautiful complexion, but the best beauty tip for achieving a flawless look is to follow a proper skincare routine for your skin type.

There are endless types of makeup that claim to make your skin look perfect, but the real secret to flawless skin is great skin care in these beauty tips.

Your skincare routine can help give you that flawless, fresh look if you follow through daily. When choosing products, remember to keep in mind your skin type and changes in the weather that can affect your skin. Here’s beauty advice for great skincare below:

1. Wash your face: It might seem okay at the end of the day to sleep in your makeup. You’ve had a busy day of working, running errands, and taking care of your family. The first part of a good skincare routine is to properly cleanse your face. Otherwise, you are allowing the day’s dirt and oil to seep into your pores and there is nothing flawless about that.

2. Exfoliate: Washing your face may seem like a quick round with some soap and water because it removes dirt. However, you need to make sure you’re exfoliating for a truly flawless makeup look. When you use an exfoliator while washing your face, it doesn’t just remove dirt and oil, but it also helps remove dry or dead skin that builds up on your face, causing overly dry patches. Dead skin can build up over time and make your makeup look cakey when applied.

3. Moisturize: There are endless moisturizers on the market for your face, but not everyone can use the same moisturizer and receive the same beautiful results. When choosing a moisturizer, you need to find one that works for your specific skin type. You also want to consider the weather; we often need to make changes to our skincare product in the summer heat. Whether your skin is oily, dry, or a combination, there is a moisturizer that will work and help you achieve a flawless look.

4. Wear SPF: One of the most important parts of skin care is protecting your skin, and this includes protecting your skin from the sun. A dermatologist would tell you applying SPF to your face is the best way to keep your skin healthy because it blocks harmful UV rays which can cause damage and potentially lead to sun spots, or worse.

5. Vitamin C: Vitamin C is a great antioxidant for your skin. It can protect your skin from things in the environment which can damage your skin. You can find it in a number of skin care products including sunscreen. It is also a great brightening agent against dark spots.
