PRO TYPE: SPF should be applied to the face, ears, neck, and hands every morning and reapplied every two hours if in the sun – even if you are just sitting near a window!

PRO TYPE: Before applying the moisturizer (ideally at night), pat your treatment off where you need it to really penetrate your skin and do its Zit-Zapping magic.

PRO TYPE: Apply retinol at night before bed. Put a pea-sized amount on your finger and divide it evenly across the four quadrants of your face. Then apply a moisturizer to minimize redness and peeling.

PRO TYPE: For brows that look natural, focus more on the outer edges. Often times, Quynh says that packing too much in the inner areas toward your nose creates a “blocky” look. If you mess it up or apply too much, use a clean spoolie to brush out any lumps.

The story goes on

PRO TYPE: Dot the concealer where you need it and gently buff it with a bare brush. For a seamless finish, start with less product and slowly add more in thin layers.

PRO TYPE: Spray this detangler on your hair to air dry or before using a thermal tool as it will also provide protection.
