Guide to Flawless Skin with No Makeup
The “No Makeup” trend has become more than a hashtag, it’s a full-on movement.

Instead of covering up your skin flaws, liberate your flawless skin! Check out our results-oriented skincare treatments to #loveyourselfie #makeupfree:
How to Pull Off No Makeup: Get Your Glow On
If you search the #nomakeup hashtag on Instagram, the first thing you’ll notice is faces as glowing as the summer sun, like Cindy Crawford. It’s a look that’s easier to achieve than you think. Here’s how:
Exfoliation Treatment — Microdermabrasion, Facial Peel, Dermaplaning
Dead skin cells are in a constant state of piling up on the surface of your skin, causing dull, dreary skin. Try an exfoliation treatment like microdermabrasion, a chemical peel or dermaplaning to remove the top layer of skin cells and reveal the fresh, bright skin underneath.
Atomized serums are gently sprayed onto the skin for an instantly more hydrated complexion. This soothing treatment will repair the skin and restore its healthy glow.
How to Pull Off No Makeup: Get Rid of Acne Breakouts and Dark Marks for an Even Skin Tone
How to achieve Nicole Sherzingers even glow without makeup? There are a few ways to get rid of skin imperfections:
Treatment — Microdermabrasion, Facial Peel, Dermaplaning
Not only do exfoliating treatments, like microdermabrasion, a facial peel or dermaplaning, result in glowing skin, they also helps prevent and diminish skin imperfections. By removing the dead skin cells, there’s less of a chance for pores to clog and cause acne and blemishes. Further, adding an exfoliation treatment into your skincare routine will speed up skin cell regeneration to fade hyperpigmentation like sunspots and dark marks, as well as to diminish the appearance of acne scarring.
Laser Skin Resurfacing
Laser resurfacing treatments like the Tight and Bright Laser Skin Treatment use a non-ablative Candela YAG laser to gently and effectively warm the upper dermis of the skin. As a result, repeating pulses of low-level energy work to stimulate collagen production. You’ll be amazed at how it imparts an even, healthy glow to the face.
Both IPL and LED Photofacials use light as their energy source to repair the skin at a cellular level. Specific wavelengths of light penetrate deep within the skin and cause blood vessels and collagen fibers to constrict. As a result, damaged and photoaged skin is removed and skin is restored to health.
How to Pull Off No Makeup: Get Smooth, Wrinkle-Free Skin
Wrinkles and hollow contours are the opposite of the fresh-faced beauty we’re trying to achieve in a makeup free look. There are highly effective skincare treatments designed to restore volume and diminish wrinkles and reveal a more youthful appearance. Sharon Stone seems to have gotten the memo:
The word Botox has become synonymous with wrinkle reduction. It’s responsible for smoothing out millions of frown lines, crow’s feet and “elevens” (the two lines between the eyes) every year. Botox (along with Dysport and Xeomin) is an injectable neurotoxin that diminishes wrinkles and fine lines by smoothing the muscle. Specifically, the mechanism of action is the same in all three brands. In addition, they all contain botulinum toxin, which works to block nerve impulses to the muscles and reduce the look of expression lines on the face.
Hyaluronic Acid fillers, like Juvederm and Restylane, are a great way to bring back a youthful appearance by out superficial folds, restoring volume and getting rid of fine lines and wrinkles. As we age, we lose subcutaneous fat and the skin stretches and gets looser. Fillers placed under the skin counteract the effects of aging on the face, and can work on many areas of concern. These include softening smile lines, enhancing shallow contours, smoothing under eye circles and plumping thin lips.
How to Pull Off No Makeup: Flawless Face Framers
A no makeup look doesn’t have to mean a completely look that’s completely bare or untamed. Beauty Vlogger Gina Shekda knows the value of a good beauty hack.
Professional Eyelash and Eyebrow Treatments
By enhancing your eyebrows or eyelashes, you can look polished and put together without the daily maintenance of makeup. Professional estheticians can do everything from eyelash and eyebrow tinting to eyebrow shaping and eyelash extensions. They can customize a look for you, depending on whether you prefer to boost your natural beauty or make a dramatic statement. Oh, and for good measure, a pretty pout looks great bare. Go for a cosmetic filler for instant lip plumping.
