Before great makeup comes great skincare! I can’t emphasis enough as a Makeup Artist how important it is to take care of your skin,makeup can only do so much and while you may be able to cover up imperfections with concealers and color correctors, I am a firm believer that makeup should not be a tool for one to hide under but instead it should be used to enhance a woman’s natural beauty. Makeup generally adheres beautifully to skin that has been well taken care off so please ladies drink lots of water, incorporate fruits and veggies into your daily diet and of course find a skincare regimen that is suitable for your skin type.
With so many amazing skincare products available to choose from, it can be quite overwhelming to choose and find a suitable brand especially for people who are just starting to take skincare seriously so to help you out, I have listed below five amazing skincare products that you can try out.
This is probably one of the most popular drugstore skincare brands and the good news is that it is locally available in some pharmacies. Their wide range of skincare products range from: cleansers to moisturizers suitable for sensitive skin, normal skin and even acne prone skin.

In fact, this product is gentle enough for a baby’s delicate skin.
Another popular drugstore brand is Neutrogena and you can easily find Neutrogena products in leading supermarkets and Pharmacies countrywide. The biggest selling point for Neutrogena as a skincare brand has to be the fact that it is one of the most popular and dermatologist recommended skincare brand. Most of their products target acne-prone and problematic skin. You are guaranteed to find safe, mild and premium quality skincare products with Neutrogena.

You may be surprised why Mary Kay products made it to this list, most people view the skincare products under Mary Kay as for ‘elderly women’ but this brand does actually carry some great skincare products. While Mary Kay skincare products can be more on the pricier side, they are definitely worth a try; the most popular product is their ClearProof range targeted for acne prone skin that promises to help you take back control of your skin!

Their products have no dyes, artificial perfumes or harsh irritants making this brand suitable for even the most sensitive of skin. Chandarana Supermarket has a well stocked up range of Simple skincare products.
- Garnier Skin active Micellar Cleansing Water
Micellar cleansing water is an all-in-one way to cleanse, remove makeup, and refresh your skin no matter your skin type; it features micelles which are tiny cleansing molecules that lift oil, dirt and makeup away from the face with no rinsing or harsh rubbing needed making it an easy way to cleanse your skin while on the go. The Garnier brand of Micellar water is definitely one that I would recommend especially for those of you who wear makeup on a regular.
