Everyone's talking about…the new natural skin rules

There’s no need to fear natural make-up styles just because you’re no longer a teenager. Follow a few simple rules for a fresh-faced look that anyone can pull off.

Tip 1: Sleep on your back

Sleeping on your stomach or your side can cause creases and sagging. That’s because your head is the weight of a bowling ball – yes, really! – and all that pressure on your skin isn’t good for it. Hollywood dermatologists swear by travel pillows, which curve around your neck to support it, making it more comfortable to snooze on your back.

Tip 2: Brush your skin to polished perfection

You always make sure to brush your hair with a smoothing brush to bring out the best in your glossy locks. So why wouldn’t you do the same for your skin? A sonic cleansing brush such as Olay Regenerist 3 Point Super Cleansing System effortlessly smoothes your complexion, cleanses your face more deeply and gives you a flawless look that needs less make-up.

Tip 3: Create a flawless finish

An instant way to natural-looking skin is to swap your full-coverage foundation for moisturising complexion correcting cream. Olay Total Effects 7-in-1 CC Cream combines powerful treatments to fight the signs of ageing with flawless coverage for brighter-looking skin. With SPF15, it even protects you from sun damage, ensuring your skin stays healthy and beautiful for a long time to come.

Tip 4: Elongate your lashes

We all know that batting your eyelashes can be an effective way to distract someone’s attention. Long lashes also do a great job at putting the focus on your eyes, drawing it away from lines and wrinkles. Choose a volumising mascara for a natural-looking but high-impact look.

Tip 5: Put some colour in your cheeks

Choosing the right colour for your blusher is one of the easiest ways for your skin to defy the passage of time. Try a touch of apricot or peach tones: they look youthful and warm up your skin tone in an irresistible way. Go for a cream blush instead of powder: it reflects the light more for a natural glow.
