Pre-date Skin Prep - Ms tantrum Blog

This is a dating season and if you have good skin, you feel more confident. Even for makeup, you need to have a good canvas so your makeup can sit better on top and you can glow from within. Here are some of my picks that are perfect for achieving a well nourished and radiant skin like you had your beauty sleep.

I have shared my love for this cleansing balm few times before on both social and blog. This multi-purpose cleansing balm not only melts makeup but can also be used as a morning cleanser if you prefer luxurious nourishing balms specially in this cold weather. This balm cleanser has essential oils and it detoxifies the skin taking off every single particle of dust/gunk from your pores. If you have blackheads/whiteheads, this balm cleanser will help you extracting those easily too. I love that it comes with the towel mitten which is perfect for exfoliating.

My t-zone gets congested easily but this balm cleanser is my top pick if i do not want any scrub or chemical exfoliation on my skin. I take it off with a warm mitten (that comes with it) after massaging it in. It takes dirt, grime, makeup and sunscreen off in one easy swipe. I promise you will be hooked to this cleansing balm once you try it. Skin feels squeaky clean & nourished after every use and is a perfect choice to prep your skin before a Date.

 This peel drenches skin with moisture, utilising a two-step system to deliver maximum hydration alongside anti-ageing benefits. The Retexturising Swab is the first step; a sealed cotton bud that has been saturated in a powerful, AHA-based blend of Lactic and Glycolic Acids, which work to gently exfoliate the surface layer of skin, dissolving dulling dead cells and unclogging pores to promote a more even and refined texture. Follow with the Moisture Infusion Mask; a sheet mask infused with a host of botanical extracts and Hyaluronic Acid that provides an immediate boost to hydration levels by up to 400% for unparalleled results. Skin is left feeling plumped and revitalised, with the appearance of wrinkles visibly reduced and a healthy looking vitality is restored. There is a noticeable difference after using this and this peel is perfect to prep skin before any special event.

The double ended roller can be used to increase micro-circulation and stimulate lymphatic drainage, whilst also reducing puffiness and helping to improve skin elasticity. It can be used alone with massaging techniques, or with products such as serums and moisturisers, to promote better absorption into the skin. You may use it over Moisture infusion mask (2nd step of Murad hydro Glow Peel) and it will make sure that the serums in the mask are absorbed better into your skin and your skin is de-puffed at the same time.

This is an intensely nourishing yet lightweight cream has whipped texture and leaves skin as soft as cashmere. The soft cream melts into the skin upon contact, smooths wrinkles, deeply replenishes and redensifies the skin, to leave it looking lifted and more youthful whilst relieving dry skin. The ultra-soft, non-greasy texture is enriched with ‘soft focus’ mattifying powders for a dewy make-up priming base. As a bonus, this cream smells so good too!

This eye cream makes skin under eyes well hydrated for makeup. Makeup sits beautifully without slipping or setting into fine lines. This eye cream helps repair and restore the delicate skin barrier around your eyes leaving you with brighter, smoother, healthier looking eyes. The cream absorbs quickly so you don’t need to wait longer to apply makeup.

I cannot recommend this skin perfecting serum enough! It is suitable for all skin types and is designed to sit over moisturiser to smooth fine lines and prime skin for make-up. Silicone-free, the silky formula is packed with natural bio-actives that work to lift and smooth skin, filling out fine lines and wrinkles for a matte finish that’s perfect for make-up application. This little extra step will make your makeup look way more beautiful. I highly recommend checking this out.

Until next time, Ashh xo
