Our dear spots always appear at the worse time – the day we are going to a party, a wedding, an interview, or worse… a date !!! Just when we would love perfect skin and here they come – I had a lovely one the day I did my driving licence picture, now it’s on it for ever…
Thankfully, there are ways to hide them, just follow these 3 simple steps :
As soon as you see a new spot coming up, using a cotton disk or ear bud, purify the area with a an antiseptic lotion such as Phyt’s Naturoderm. With 100% pure and natural plant macerations and essential oils such as cloves (antibacterial) and sage (heals), Naturoderm is a powerful antiseptic, antibacterial and antifungal lotion for any infections and open sores. I personally carry it in my bag and also use it as hand sanitiser – it smells lovely and contains no ethanol – so it’s all good.
Time to take out your Concealer, also called Corrective Cream – depending on the colour of the affected area, you will choose a colour to tone it down – for example, if it’s red, you can use a green concealer. Couleur Caramel offers a wide choice of Corrective Creams, which are ideal to erase imperfections, dark circles, puffiness and redness. The shade used must be lighter than the foundation to create contrast. With ingredients such as Organic Shea Butter and FT Baobab Oil, Couleur Caramel Concealers moisturise, nourish and purify the skin.
Apply a small quantity with your finger or a brush by gently dabbing it onto the affected area, until the colour is neutralized.
Apply your foundation as normal but being extra gentle when you apply it over the concealer, in order to not remove it. Then set your make up with a powder et voilà, you’re ready to go!
A general rule when a spot appear is to always cleanse your skin properly, avoid touching the spot(s) during the day (I know, it’s tempting), especially if you haven’t washed your hands… Also, always remove your makeup prior to exercising.
I recommend that you choose natural products which are ideally organic in order to not irritate your skin further, just like the saying : « nature doesn’t need chemicals to be beautiful, why would you ? » If you want to know more about some of the nasty common ingredients that are in our cosmetics, please read the following post.
Finally, watch your diet: eat wholefoods, fresh fruits & vegetables, homecooked foods preferrably (80% of the time) and avoid sweets, junk food, fast food, sodas, alcohol and caffeine – remember the 80/20 rule…
