Is there anything I should do to prepare my child’s face for makeup?
Moisturizing is such a critical step that most people tend to ignore because they don’t have the time. But its so important because for skin to function properly, it needs to have a layer of moisture on it. If you don’t moisturize and you’re skin is already dry and irritated, you can develop sensitivities, rashes, hives, or eczema. So moisturizing prevents those rashes from occurring, it keeps the skin youthful, makes the skin look good, and prevents the skin from getting irritated.
