What you need to know about skincare if you use makeup frequentlY

If you thought that the only thing you need to remember to do if you love using makeup is to take it off, you’re just scratching the surface (literally). Makeup artists, dermatologists and beauty editors are always emphasising on the importance of skincare pre-makeup and the general beauty tips to keep in mind to ensure your skin stays plump and flawless. They do so for good reason—when the makeup’s off, it’s your skin underneath that stays with you; it deserves the love and care. While we’ve given you a guide to the best skincare products Bollywood makeup artists love to use, this time around, we’ve got three dermatologists dropping truth bombs about the importance of skincare when you’re a frequent makeup user. Read on for seven tips you should keep in mind to look after your skin—it needs the care more than you know.

  1. “Makeup can dehydrate the skin. Hence, a moisturiser is extremely important under your makeup. Secondly, if your skin is dry, makeup starts to cake up [over the course of the day]. A skincare product will protect the skin from any untoward effects of makeup that will follow.” – Dr Jaishree Sharad
  2. “It is important to use skincare products under makeup depending on your skin type. If your skin is dry, you should use a good moisturiser; for oily skin, you can use a pore minimising product and for normal skin, you should use a light moisturiser as it will not allow makeup to clog. If you want to use a primer, it should be used over your skincare products.” – Dr Malavika Kohli
  3. “During the festive season or destination weddings, it is advisable to have a separate travel kit with smaller bottles of products.” – Dr Kohli
  4. “Makeup once opened should be consumed within a year [at the maximum]. Puffs and sponges used to apply makeup should be thoroughly cleaned. Liquid foundations are preferred.” – Dr Kohli
  5. “Soak all your makeup brushes and sponges in a mug of soap water for at least half an hour every Sunday. Rinse them thoroughly lest they grow micro-organisms and accumulate dirt on them leading to skin infections and allergic rashes.” – Dr Sharad
  6. “Make sure you use sunscreen over your moisturiser even if your makeup has some amount of SPF because that’s not enough.” – Dr Rashmi Shetty
  7. “Use an eye cream to protect your eye area from pigments and plump it up, and use a lip balm to protect your pout from the cosmetics that you’re using and to make the lips look fuller.” – Dr Shetty
