, NAIROBI, Kenya, Jun 9 – The recommended facial beauty routine for a woman is quite complex. You have to start with a moisturizer if you want to have a soft, supple, radiant skin. Then you need sunscreen, always above SPF30, least you expose your skin to harmful UV lights that attract wrinkles regardless of your race.

In comes serum then foundation, because, who wants to see a woman with blemishes on her face?

It does not end there. You need a facial powder to keep everything intact. And it must be a complementing colour for it is unethical to walk around with a face complexion that does not match that of the neck!

All these stages exclude the eye-work which requires a hydrating eye cream, an eye pencil, eye shadow and mascara to give you long defined lashes assuming you do not opt for eyelash extensions.

The look would also not be complete without smearing a compatible lipstick – which if you really are outgoing, you choose a number from the various colours in the mate family which is currently a hot buy.

And do not forget the cleansing and toning products used at the beginning which are essential in preserving youth.
