The foundation for any great look is good skin. With a clean, clear base you can build a flawless look, or even go bare-faced with confidence.

The question is: How to get flawless skin? It takes a little bit of work, but with good skincare and a little cheating with basic beauty tips, you’ll have the perfect complexion in no time.

1. Start with a deep cleanse

When it comes to beauty tips for flawless skin, cleansing is the place to start. Think of cleansing as creating a smooth, clean, even surface to your skin, giving you an optimum starting point for applying base. Use a facial wash daily, like Olay Regenerist Skin Perfecting Cleanser to remove make-up and refresh your skin.

A couple of times a week, use a gentle exfoliator – either a brush or face wash –to help remove dead skin, clear out blackheads and stimulate blood flow for a healthy glow. Or try Olay Clay Stick Mask Fresh Reset Pink Mineral Complex, formulated with premium Kaolin clay to micro-exfoliate and remove the impurities that can dull the skin. By doing this you’ll need less base as your skin will gradually look better bare.

2. Add a serum to your skincare routine

Serums are a great way of getting a high dose of targeted skin-perfecting ingredients that work with your moisturiser to give your skin an extra boost. Just apply after cleansing and before you put on a moisturising cream. Olay Regenerist Anti Ageing 3 Point Super Firming Serum has an exclusive amino-peptide complex to help soften the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, leaving you with visibly firmer, more elastic skin.

3. Conceal to reveal

The secret to flawless skin and bare-skin perfection is to go light on base, so you could try applying a touch of concealer instead. Stick only to the areas that need it, such as the eyes, nose, between your brows and chin, let it dry a little, then pat gently with a ring finger into your pores. You’ll be surprised how little base you need, if any, when you use concealer correctly.

4. Bring out your rosy glow with blush

We all have days when our inner glow needs a bit of a boost: that’s when blush comes to the rescue. Apply a subtle flush of rose using a brush in a circular motion on the prominent parts of your face: the apples of the cheeks to highlight your cheekbones, plus a light dusting on your brow bone, temples and chin. The aim is to build the colour gently until you’re happy with the look.

5. Eat healthily for glowing skin

Ensure your meals are packed with healthy protein such as salmon or eggs, which are rich in Omega-3 fats. These fats are vital for the health of cells and ensuring you have plenty in your diet will help your skin look its best.

Chia seeds are another great source of Omega-3: try them soaked overnight in milk and honey and serve with fruit for breakfast.
