Alexa Demie 4 Step Skin Care Routine:
Starting off with skincare on her face before going in with all the heavy makeup, Alexa likes to start with a clean face, She uses a cleanser or a Face wipe to remove all the dirt and oil from her face.
Cleaning the face before makeup is essential because it is good for your skin and also makeup sticks longer and looks fresher.
- Mist / Toner
After cleansing her face, Demie likes to use a mist or toner on her face, it hydrates and reduces pore size so the makeup sits better and for longer on her face.
After applying toner or mist, Alexa goes straight to her favorite serum. Applying and dabbing it all over her face and neck area.
You can also use the essential oil of your choice and massage it down your neck till it absorbs on the skin.
- Moisturiser / Sunscreen
Applying moisturizer and sunscreen is a must for everyone. Before doing makeup you can either apply a cream-based moisturizer if you have normal/dry skin, or a gel-based moisturizer if you have oily skin. If your foundation or moisturizer has a good amount of SPF (30+) you can skip the sunscreen!
