Thinking back to our pre-pandemic beauty routines, we're always stunned at how we all used to get ready. It's a wonder how we all did our makeup, hair, and even donned a full outfit every single day without blinking. But let's not cry over spilled milk here, because even if we have lost a huge chunk of our usual glam regimen, we do have one thing left: Our skincare routines. If anything, being in quarantine has made us want to step up our bareface game even more, all in pursuit of that makeup-free glow.
With makeup being reserved for those at-home selfie sessions and video calls, brands like BYS Cosmetics have shifted their attention from helping you nail a full face to giving you the essentials for a naturally flawless canvas, too. The beauty brand now is a launching a skincare range called Skin by BYS, and it has all the steps you need for a makeup-free glow and more!
Skin by BYS
Because skincare and makeup go hand in hand, BYS has created a total of 10 carefully formulated skincare products that will cleanse, treat, moisturize, and protect your skin. All of these contain what the brand calls Botaniceutical Plus 10, which is a group of naturally-derived ingredients with brightening, anti-aging, and antioxidant benefits.
Starting off with cleansers, Skin by BYS formulated the Extra Gentle Micellar Water (P799) that wipes off excess dirt and makeup and still leave your skin moisturized. Then there's the Extra Gentle Milk Jelly Cleanser (P499) for a non-stripping yet thorough second cleanse that also soothes and firms in the long run, thanks to allantoin and milk protein extract.
To balance and treat, you have three options from the line. You can pat in a good heaping of the hyaluronic acid-packed Extra Hydrating Balancing Toner (P699), or douse your skin in the line-reducing Extra Firming Youth Serum (P899) and the glow-maximizing Extra Glow Brightening Serum (P899) with vitamin C, niacinamide, and willow bark extract.
Of course, there are the powerful hydrators and nourishing picks. The Extra Glow Sheet Mask (P89) has the line's signature Botaniceutical Plus 10 ingredients in its rich serum, plus panthenol and green tea extract for a skin barrier-boosting and moisturizing 10-minute session.
If it's a no-frills product looking for, the range's moisturizer, the Extra Glow Face Cream (P599) is the one thing you should pick up. It contains vitamin C, niacinamide, and hyaluronic acid, helping improve skin elasticity while providing long-lasting hydration that works well under makeup, too. This goes perfectly with the Extra Brightening Eye Cream (P399), and its impressive cocktail of anti-aging and brightening components that'll energize those tired eyes.
Don't worry, they didn't forget about sunscreen! Skin by BYS' Extra Effortless Pore Perfecting Sunblock (P799) will protect your from UV rays with broad spectrum SPF 50. Its matte finish is perfect for the summer and as a makeshift pore-blurring primer!
