Baking: The Good, The Ugly, & The Fab

Baking is when you use excess powder to set the under eye area (also where ever else you apply your concealer to highlight) and leaving it on to set for a more brightening effect. Baking is good when you take photos but can be very damaging to the skin especially the under eye area, which is the most sensitive. Baking dries out the under eye, which can cause fine lines, wrinkles, and bags. But that doesn't mean you have to give up baking forever. Here's some tips on how you can still bake and take care of your skin. 1. Do not bake for long periods of time. Baking shown on social media is usually 5 to 10 minutes. That is pretty extreme. Keep baking, if you must, to a maximum of 3 minutes. If you want to give up baking, I suggest using a brush or sponge to apply the powder. Press the powder into the skin and then wipe away any excess. 2. Make sure you are taking care of your under eye area. Using a eye serum or eye cream can help the elasticity of the skin. It also helps with keep the skin hydrated and supple. Please take into account that using any skincare product you should give it at least 4 weeks to see results. Skincare products work with your individual cell turnover. 3. Drink a lot more water. Bags under the eyes are usually excess water. Keeping the body more hydrated helps the body flush out extra water the body holds on too. These are my tips on how to still bake and take care of your skin. #ownyourbeauty
