Too Much Fun In The Sun? Here's How To Properly Apply Makeup To Flaky Skin
Get a lil sunburned last weekend at Coachella? Let's talk about how to properly cover up flaky, tired skin that’s gotten dry from the sun. As it only continues to warm up, most of us will be enjoying the outdoors a lot more! If you are planning on being outdoors all day long, make sure to bring sunblock in your purse and wear makeup that has an SPF.
You should start by gently exfoliating the dry, flaky areas on your face. Do not over exfoliate - this will only cause more irritation!! If there are only small areas that need to be exfoliated, use a wash cloth and your regular cleanser.
Well duh. Don't be afraid to use heavy moisturizers, even if you have naturally oily skin. When applying them just make sure to evenly coat the face and don't use a lot. If you plan on giving yourself a makeup-free day and want to super charge the re-hydration, have a night-time hydration party for one!! Kiehl's has an amazing over night treatment that I looooove and one of my fave newer obsessions is Ahava hydration cream mask. Warning: do not go crazy and overload these products...you don't need to use them all in one night.
Step Away From POWDERS
The last thing we want to do is soak up the excess moisture...we need that moisture right now!! You'll be showing off that dewy and super hydrated skin in no time, or at least faking it. Stay away from any type of powder, whether it be for coverage, concealing, or setting. We need that added moisture from the liquids. Use liquid blush, cream bronzers, and liquid foundations. Powder is only going to enhance the dry spots and make us look over done so stay away, far away!!!
Don't move a muscle
Finish your look with a facial spray!! These are great to use even if you plan on having a makeup-free day. As I said on Saturday's EPMA vid, they sell soooo many different kinds of facial sprays that are totally portable!!! Facial Sprays hydrate the skin and give it a nice boost of energy for a mid-day-pick me up. You can now forget the 2pm coffee, all you need is a facial spray. Just kidding you still want to get the coffee. Ladies, these sprays are also miracle workers the day after drinking. They help to totally fake that well rested, healthy, and hydrated look.

It cannot be said enough, but remember your sunblock!!! I apply mine every morning just as I would lotion and it has become such a routine for me that I never forget it! Just to make it that much easier to remember, I also leave a travel size one in my purse because I never know what setting i'll be working in that day.
