When you think about flawless makeup application, do you immediately think of moisturized skin? For most people, the two ideas don’t go hand-in-hand—but they should!
Well-moisturized skin is one of the best ways to achieve more beautiful makeup application. But it doesn’t just mean that you should slather your skin in a moisturizer right before applying your makeup. Truly moisturized skin starts from within.
Drinking plenty of water and eating foods high in water content is the best way to moisturize skin from a dietary perspective. Balancing your diet will do a lot for your skin; conversely, a poor diet will reflect in your skin quickly, perhaps even before you feel it in the rest of your body.
Aside from diet, maintaining a daily skin care routine will keep skin well-moisturized day in and day out, which will keep you from “emergency moisturizing” just before makeup application.
Even if you’re not the best at keeping up with a regular skin care routine, you can make it part of your schedule to simply cleanse and moisturize your skin morning and evening.
This two-step routine will help get you into the habit of thinking about your skin, and you’ll find that it’s easier to build upon this simple foundation than it is to launch into a 10-step Korean skin care routine.
Why does moisture matter?
Having well-moisturized skin helps aid the skin’s natural repair process. The benefits of a well-run repair system are too many to list, but they include:
- Faster skin cell turnover for smoother, softer skin texture
- A healthy glow
- Faster-healing wounds, including blemishes
- Reduced symptoms of skin conditions like eczema and rosacea
As you can see, each of these benefits contribute directly to the appearance of your skin, which helps your makeup application in two ways. First, it reduces your need for cover-up makeup in general. Secondly, it creates a better canvas for smooth, natural-looking makeup application without the need to pile up pigment.
