If we all want to look stunningly flawless at some point, where do we start?
I've discovered that we all have an interpretation of what great skin looks like but one study cited in the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology had something very interesting to say. That is, the singular most important thing that we can do to give an impression of perfection is to reduce uneven skintone. That is removing signs of uneven pigmentation (so not necessarily those lovely freckles ladies) often caused by sun damage, hormonal fluctuations and/or scaring from blemishes.
We are offered countless solutions today, so here's a quick guide to finding one to suit your purse. At the affordable end, there are foundations, concealers and illuminisers that offer light reflecting properties, fuller coverage and colour correction. Some of my personal favourites are MAC Studio Fix Fluid, MAC Strobe Cream, Inglot Creme Foundation and Clinique Superbalanced Makeup. If you're prepared to spend a little more for a longer lasting result, you can venture into the world of laser technology with IPL or combine it with microdermabrasion and/or professional peels.
...but at the risk of sounding like a recording - always remember your daily application of sunscreen.
