‘If you’ve got it, flaunt it’, right?
Freckles are having a huge revival in the beauty industry at the moment. With celebrities such as Kylie Jenner and even HRH Meghan Markle embracing their natural skin, there's something youthful and ever so pretty about freckles that we just can’t get enough of.
From trends to skip, ways to protect and even a few makeup tips, here are just some ways you can flaunt your freckles this season.
Avoid the sun
First things first - prevention!
Keep your skin in tip-top shape and avoid UV exposure. When your skin comes into direct contact with radiation this triggers melanin activity. This can result in darker freckles and is also a big culprit for stimulating pigmentation.
Load up on your SPF
This is a no-brainer that everyone should abide by, even if you’re freckle-free. Everyday, use a hydrating cream moisturiser with a broad spectrum SPF. This will protect your skin from the dangers of the sun and keep your freckles looking cute.
Introducing antioxidant products to your skincare regime can help to protect skin against environmental aggressors such as pollution; which can cause some serious damage to your skin. Start off with an Antioxidant Facial Oil, which can help renew your skin cells; resulting in fresher, clearer skin with a gorgeous glow.
Embrace your natural beauty - don’t hide it!
Tinted moisturiser combines the efforts of a daily moisturiser and a light foundation all in one. It’s lighter, but still gives you a healthy luminous radiance, without completely hiding your skin or going makeup free. It’s a great option that will give you a glowy pick-me-up and cover the odd blemish.
Something made you blush?
They say pink makes the boys wink, but opting for a coral-based blusher will add a sun-kissed tone to your complexion and avoid mistaking your ‘glow’ for sunburn. Using a coral-toned blush will complement the skin and highlight freckles. Add a little highlighter for a shimmery finish that will catch in the light. It’s important not to go overboard with this to avoid looking like a unicorn ;-)
Bold and beautiful
From day to night, make a statement with your look by adding a bold lip!
Opt for a plum or a warm red to complement your freckled skin. This combined with your tinted moisturiser will have you looking good and feeling great. Get ready to turn some heads!
