3 Skincare Essentials to Make Your Makeup Look Better

As any beauty fan worth her weight in coconut oil knows, a good skincare routine is the foundation to a radiant complexion, no matter how many layers of BB cream you apply. Recently, blogger Paola Alberdi of Blank Itinerary started paying more attention to her skincare routine, adding three Avon Anew essentials to her product lineup that drastically improved the appearance of her skin, whether she’s wearing makeup or not.

"I’d been traveling a lot, and my skin was feeling very dry," Alberdi says. "So one weekend, I decided to give my skin a spa day with these three products. Once I put makeup on, I could definitely feel the difference. My foundation was going on smoother, as well as my lipstick. Hydration is key in order for my glow to shine through the makeup."
