The basics of great skin

In today's world, it is easy to neglect certain things when it comes to beauty and skin care. At a certain point, the busy mother of three, the first year college student, or the up-and-coming executive just don't have the time or energy to spend even just a few more minutes in the morning to prep their face. Half of the time we even skip out on makeup in general! We forget or are never informed of the havok that this can wreak on the skin. The easiest way to correct this problem is to become educated.

By calling your local department store cosmetic counter you can schedule a free consultation and learn first hand the basic tools of the trade, and any beauty secrets to speed up, or spice up your daily routine. Clinique Cosmetics, for example, is a leading cosmetics brand and their consultants are highly educated in basic skin care and makeup. Their 3-Step Skin Care System is a number one seller in department stores world-wide, and is a fast and thourough fix for someone with only a few moments to spare in the mornings and evenings. Each step is custom fit to your skin's needs. Whether you are dry, oily, combination; if you have acne, uneven skin tone, or you just want to preserve the gorgeous skin you already have, there is a set for you.


A face wash makes the first step, this soap, which can come in either a bar or liquid, and in many different formulas, will loosen up the bonds between the oil and the dead skin cells on your face and prepare it for the second step, the Clarifying Lotion. This Clarifying Lotion acts as a toner, and sweeps off the dead skin cells on your skin's surface. This layer of dead skin cells acts as a wall, keeping harmful things under your skin, and any moisture or treatments from getting in. By removing this wall, the third step, The Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion, the number one selling moisturizer in the world, can penetrate your skin and be absorbed.


In addition, by making a consultation, Clinique's Dermatologist Accredited Consultants will assess your skin personally, and diagnose any underlying problems while addressing any issues you may have with your skin. After all, your makeup will only look as good as your skin. And, in this case, beauty is, in fact, skin deep.
