We women have our personal ‘swear-by’ beauty products – it could be that smudge-free eyeliner, concealer, SPF 50 sunscreen or mascara. However, we at SAUCEink have narrowed down all your favourite beauty products to these 5 essential products that we just can’t live without!
Sunscreen is essential, especially if you live in a hot and sunny country. It helps to protect our skin against UV radiation which is made up of UVA and UVB. These rays are capable to penetrate into the deeper layers of the skin and cause skin cancer. It is also one of the top reasons for skin aging. Even Australian actor, Hugh Jackman, after discovering that he has skin cancer, has advised his fans to put on sunblock everyday. As such, please remember to apply that sunscreen before stepping out of your house.
Some people think that they do not need to moisturise their skin because it’s oily. However, they are mistaken because oily skin does not mean hydrated skin as hydration has to do with the amount of water within the skin cells. Thus, moisturiser plays a vital role in one’s daily skin care routine. It helps to hydrate and balance our skin’s pH level, where a balanced skin is smooth and has that ‘dewy’ glow. Nonetheless, it is essential to find a moisturiser that fits your skin type.
We all know we need to include a good facial mask in our skin care regimen. Facial masks are the most important skin care treatment for any skin concerns. There are many different types of facial masks available out there, ranging from peel-off to clay masks that suit individual skin needs. So whether you are blessed with super dry, combination, oily or sensitive skin, you will definitely find one that fits your skin needs.
Looking a little tired? Waterproof mascara is an absolute must-have product as it makes immediately makes one’s eyes ‘pop’ in seconds. Moreover, it keeps your lashes looking fresh and perfect in hot and humid weather as it resists smudging.
Nobody wants to kiss chapped, dry lips. Which is why we can’t live without our tube of lip balm. Lip balm helps to lock moisture and protect lips from harsh weather, ensuring that they remain soft and supple. Best time to put on lip balm is just before applying your regular lipstick as well as just before you go to bed.
