Definition of SELFIE

Just in case you were the only person on the planet not aware of this, the selfie made its way into the dictionary in 2014 and it looks like it's not going anywhere soon. While it has made mini Norma Desmond's of us all, there is no getting away from the fact that these days we need to have 'camera ready' skin. Unlike celebrities who tend to have armies of hair, makeup and lighting people to make them look their best, us lesser mortals need to keep our skin in top condition by treating it regularly and taking care of any problem areas. Here are Solvaderm's do's and don'ts to ensure your skin is ready for its close-up.
Tip #1 Start With a Great Canvas
It goes without saying that great skin takes work to achieve. Daily cleansing, toning and moisturizing along with regular exfoliating treatments will leave skin glowing with beauty and skin care. Serums containing botanical extracts will feed the skin and leave it hydrated at any age while those containing Hyaluronic acid are perfect for hiding fine lines and wrinkles. Regular visits to a dermatologist can help reduce breakouts for those with problem skin. Whatever its natural condition, your skin can always be improved by ensuring you eat a healthy diet, get plenty of sleep, drink water regularly and wear sunscreen daily.
Tip #2 Conceal Don’t Reveal
Be careful with concealers, you want to hide blemishes not shroud them in mystery! Unless they are an exact tone/shade match for the foundation you are using, your face can end up looking like a patchwork quilt. Like with contouring, the key is to blend, blend and blend some more. Areas to watch out for are under the eyes and around the jawline. In particular, when dealing with dark circles under the eyes, be careful with highlighters (Tip #3 below explains why.) If breakouts are a problem but you want to keep imperfections hidden, try a medicated concealer which should actively work to eradicate bacteria while keeping your blemishes out of sight.
Tip #3 The Sun Doesn’t Shine at Night!
Have you ever seen pictures taken of people at night where they look like they’ve had baking soda thrown in their face? Clearly it has only occurred as a result of flash photography but it doesn’t happen to everyone, so what is the cause? Strangely enough, it is the thing that is designed to protect your skin during the day, the sunscreen which is now included in most moisturizers, foundations and concealers. Titanium dioxide, which is the active ingredient in sunscreen shows up under the camera’s flash creating this effect. Use a night cream under a foundation without an SPF in it to avoid looking washed out or ending up with white patches on your face.
Now, look at the camera and say Solvaderm!
