DO COLORS REALLY COUNTERACT SKIN ISSUES?!
Many of us may have heard about this trick or even tried it out ourselves, although it does seem too good to be true- there is actually truth to this "myth"! Think about the color wheel you learned about in grade school art class that was designed to teach you basic colors; you were able to see how colors that were considered opposites to each other could be combined to create beautiful and new colors all together. This same concept can actually be applied to the world of beauty as well:
YELLOW: If you want to diminish dark circles or bruising, this is the way to go. This color will counteract purplish tones quite well as it the colors' opposite [see the color wheel above!] :)
PURPLE: Want to do just the opposite as the above mentions? Then give purples a try when trying to combat yellow tones. Asian and lighter skin tones with yellow undertones will benefit the greatest from utilizing purple.
CORAL: Trying to get a luminous glow? The color of coral is my top pick as it will bring tired skin and those with blue-grey undertones, a beautiful glow to skin immediately!
GREEN: This is definitely your best bet if wanting to eliminate redness from blemishes, scares, or skin irritation. Those with rosacea will also benefit from using green by greatly reducing the redness effects of the skin issue.
TO REDUCE REDNESS,
THE BEAUTY CLOSET RECOMMENDS:
LA ROCHE-POSAY ROSALIAC SKIN PERFECTING ANTI-REDNESS MOISTURIZER
I fell instantly in LOVE with this moisturizer as it is so lightweight yet effective, it's really like no other moisturizer I've used before. In fact, I like it so much- that I decided to make it my new daily moisturizer for my am. skincare routine and I've seen a big difference in my overall skin health, hydration, and feel. Plus, this doesn't break me out and that's a big bonus as I normally have issues with many moisturizers. I can break out at the drop of a hat practically and moisturizers and lotions can often times be the main culprit.
You won't have this issue at all with this product, but you will get awesome moisture retention AND redness reduction too! I have quite a bit in a couple of areas when I do break out and also from scars and this has helped out tremendously. It's perfect for use under makeup and will absorb in about 5 minutes.
That's a tad bit longer to fully absorb into the skin than some products might take, but I didn't really find that it bothered me as the product felt so awesome on my skin. It has a really nice cooling effect and leaves you skin soft, moisturized, and healthy feeling. The pricing might be high for some, although I can attest to quality and effectiveness. You also do not need to use much to apply the product- even if you chose to put on your entire face and neck areas. I would highly recommend this product to any skin tone, type, or age! :)
