LET YOUR SKIN BREATHE:
Coming back home from a long day to remove those layers of foundation might just be one of the most satisfying feelings ever! The reason being is that we’re finally allowing our skin to breath. We’re constantly smothering our skin with makeup products without paying attention to what’s in it. This leads to our pores being clogged-up and simply explains those occasional breakouts we have.
EMK is a pioneer in natural beauty. It stands by the belief that the best foundation you can ever wear is simply your own glowing healthy skin. Here are a few steps in creating your new foundation-free skin.
Baby Steps: Go for lighter coverage
Now, the thought of leaving the house foundation-free may be daunting at first. Dip your toe in the water by using a lighter coverage to start. Explore other substitutes such as BB creams or tinted moisturizers. These alternatives still provide just enough pigment as coverage without suffocating your skin. EMK offers Glowin Tinted Cream™, the only 8-in-1 tinted cream that illuminates your skin with a natural glowing color. Unlike foundations, tinted creams nourish and moisturize the skin.
What makes EMK Glowin™ special is that it’s packed with natural plant extracts like ginseng and lotus flower combined with vitamin E and A, all to hydrate your skin and fight against pollution and temperature changes. To top it all off, the product has SPF 30 made from the signature EMK plant placenta and anti-aging peptides to help reverse sun damage and protect from future cellular collapse and discolorations. Say no more to wearing heavy foundation or sticky, greasy sunscreens! In no time, you’ll feel even more confident with no coverage at all.
The phrase, ‘you are what you eat’ has never been truer when it comes to achieving that glowing skin. When you combine both external and internal nourishment, that is when you achieve your optimum skin. It goes without saying, our favourite guilty pleasure junk foods are definitely a danger zone to our skin. Science research has shown that certain foods tend to lead to acne breakouts. Such foods include dairy, high glycaemic index foods (e.g. carbohydrates that are fast acting sugars) and saturated fats. Instead, opt for foods high in fibre, rich in antioxidants, low in glycaemic index and healthy fats. Go to your local market today and buy your fruits and veggies!
Lastly, everything is good in moderation. So, indulge yourself to some chocolate here and there, but always keep in mind of the wellbeing of your skin.
Revamp Your Skincare Routine
The skincare you use makes a huge impact to the state of your skin throughout the day. Spend those extra time you would have spared to do your makeup in the morning or remove your makeup before bed for your skincare. Maybe it’s time to re-evaluate and change those cosmetics you have been using for your face but show little to no signs of improvements. The road to a foundation-free skin all starts with a good cleanser. Choosing a cleanser to incorporate to your daily skincare regimen is especially crucial, because it is the ultimate product that cleanses your skin for the night and prepares your skin for the day. Look for a cleanser that is light with natural ingredients for the skin while enhancing suppleness and lift. The EMK Aurora Cleanser™ does exactly this. The formula doesn’t remove your natural skin sebum, which is vital for maintaining a balanced healthy skin. It provides deep level nourishment; helps increase elastin levels in the skin and acts as a catalyst for further product absorption to your skincare. Chemical peeling is what the majority would jump into thinking when solving these skin problems. However, peeling your skin too often is dangerous. Fundamentally, you are stripping away the skin sebum that contains vital elements to protect your skin.
For a more convenient, effective and gentle way of handling your skin, cleanse first with the Aurora Cleanser™, and then follow-on with Bloom Toner™. The combination of the toner and cleanser leaves your skin smooth and pore-less looking. Your skin will be thanking you for all that love and care you’ve invested in it. Now, throw away your foundation. You don’t need it anymore!
EMK’s Rule of Three
Here’s the new foundation for your skin. It’s composed of three simple products and you’re ready to leave the door!
1. Rescue Serum™
The name of the product says it all. A fave of top physicians and A-list celebrities worldwide, it’s a clean beauty product filled with a blend of desired ingredients for our skin. It includes, tea leaves, licorice, kelp, and of course, the legendary EMK Bioplacenta®.
2. Optima Face Cream™
The Optima Face Cream™ imparts instant radiance to dull, dry, stressed skin. It penetrates quickly to smooth and plump the skin with rejuvenating hydration, making lines and wrinkles less noticeable and improving firm, supple tone. To top it all off, it gives off a subtle aroma of vanilla, coffee bean, and cocoa! You’ll feel all fresh and dewy for the day.
3. Guard Sunscreen™
We have all heard about the dangers of the sun, so let’s not forget our beloved sunscreen. Wearing sunscreen can be a drag because of its stickiness, heaviness and patchiness. The EMK Guard Sunscreen™ is nothing compared to your old regular sunscreen. It includes HD-Shield™ for protection against UV damage and vitamin A and C. Unlike sunscreens with Titanium Dioxide, the EMK non-greasy formula creates no shine and gives skin a smooth, flawless look, even in harsh flash photography lighting. It’s the cherry on the sundae for your no foundation skin.
Voila! Let’s celebrate this journey you’re ready to embark on in letting your skin breathe. At the end of the day, it’s all about taking more time in understanding the products you are using, loving your skin and relying solely on your natural confidence!
P.S. You also get a few extra minutes to sleep in because you don’t need to put on all that makeup!
