In a world of filtered and face-tuned selfies, our own facial recognition software is likely to fail IRL, due to an avalanche of seriously strobed and creatively contoured timelines. While these makeup effects look great on an app, in person, everyone just wants beautiful skin that requires less cosmetic enhancement. The most stunning no-makeup makeup look relies on a judicious application of cosmetics, of course, but vital to the entire operation is a serious skin-care strategy.
Our pick for perfect skin preparation? DCL’s one-two skincare punch of Hydra Boost Finishing Serum layered under Skin Renewal Complex SPF 30. The combo packs in hydration for all-day moisturization and yields a smooth, even base for makeup. Best of all? This combo benefits every skin type on the spectrum.
First, layer on DCL Hydra Boost Finishing Serum, infused with skincare workhorse hyaluronic acid to drench skin with moisture. Marine extracts of seaweed and algae enhance cell turnover, while safeguarding skin from environmental damage. This comfortable serum firms and minimizes the appearance of fine lines, to boot.
Next, protect skin from environmental stressors with a dollop of DCL Skin Renewal Complex SPF 30, a five-in-one refining hydrator. The cream combines exfoliating powerhouse glycolic acid with sunscreen to deliver multiple benefits in a single step. It helps retexturize and brighten, fends off free radicals and imparts moisturizer, while SPF 30 keeps skin safe from UVA, UVB and free radical damage.
Now you’re primed, prepped and ready to primp.
