Do you ever find that your makeup routine can make you look older?
Sometimes it just finds its way into every fine line, pore and wrinkle you didn’t even know that you had.
Thankfully, one woman seems to have unlocked the way to improve the signs of ageing on your skin and it starts with building a solid base for your makeup.
British skincare guru, Elle McNamara, who goes by Bambi Does Beauty online, revealed her secrets which she claims make her skin look years younger.
@bambidoesbeauty THINGS I DID TO AGE SKIN BACKWARDS ⬇️ – Double cleanse in PM with an oil based cleanser and flannel (no wipes!) – Mist, mist and mist again. Fine textured hydrating mists stop those dehydration lines. – Retinol (I started late twenties!) fine lines/congestion/blackheads all reduced – Layer hydrating serums. Even if its the same one twice. – SPF daily as a preventative, I stopped buying the cheapest ones at the end of the aisle tor face and body and now use ones formulated for skin on the face. PS If you have dry skin like me see it as another layer of moisture for your skin to keep bouncy! #skintok #skincare #skincaretreatment #skincaretips #skincareroutine #skincare101 #skincareasmr #skincareproducts #skincareadvice #wrinklesbegone #antiaging #antiagingskincare #agingbackwards ♬ surround trend – reese 🍰
The 33-year-old posted a video to TikTok where she could be seen applying some skincare products text reading: “You can’t age your skin backwards without filler or Botox…” followed by an old photo from years back with forehead wrinkles and the words “Watch me”.
Yet in the rest of the clip, the makeup influencer showed off how she actually achieves her age-defying looks – and it only takes five steps.
The first step in her routine is doing a “double cleanse” in the evening with an oil-based cleanser and flannel and most certainly not makeup wipes.
Next on the rundown is “mist, mist and mist again”. Elle likes to use fine textured hydrating mists, so basically one that does drown you in raindrops, as they stop “Dehydration lines.”
She applies retinol, something she only incorporated into her routine in her late 20s, which will help reduce fine lines, congestion and blackheads.
Then it’s on to step four and it’s time to layer hydrating serums even if it’s the same one twice.
Finally to round things off, Elle applies SPF, which is something that we should all be using anyway to protect against the sun’s harsh UV rays, but not the type you apply all over your body.
“I stopped buying the cheapest ones at the end of the aisle for face and body and now use ones formulated for skin on the face,” Elle added.
“PS If you have dry skin like me see it as another layer of moisture for your skin to keep bouncy!”
People could get enough of her de-ageing skincare routine with the video wracking up a mind-blowing 2.1 million views so far.
