We all know the pain of cracked, dry lips, so today I am here to suggest some tips to help!
Sometimes applying loads and loads of chapstick is not the answer to dry, chapped lips.
Just like our skin our lips need exfoliation.Therefore, in order for our lip moisturizers to do their job, they need a fresh exfoliated surface to work with. There are many ways to exfoliate your lips, you can: Use a toothbrush to scrub your lips, or a towel. You can even use scotch tape (place tape on lips and slowly peel off), or you can use a lip scrub, which you can find at most places, or you can make your own using sugar and oils.
After you have exfoliated, follow up with your favorite lip moisturizer.
My current favorite is Lip Service by LUSH.
So this winter make sure you don’t forget to exfoliate your lips!
This weeks fun tip is about your skin!
My tips are usually based around our skin, and that is because having healthy skin is important and it boosts confidence! I’m going to share a few tips that I have learned throughout the years that seem to help. 🙂
Always wash your face in the morning and night. Do not sleep in your makeup ever! If you had a long night and are too lazy to wash your face with a cleanser, at least use a face wipe. I have learned from past experience that going to bed without washing your face can easily cause a breakout in the morning.
Allow each serum to completely set before applying another. For my daily skin care routine I use a lot of different items. So if you apply multiple serums make sure to let each individual serum sit on your skin for at least a full minute before applying your moisturizer or another serum. This allows your skin to absorb more of the good stuff.
Use a serum! If you do not use a serum, you should! They are great ways to target specific problem areas with your skin. I believe the serum is one of the most important parts to my skincare routine. I tend to use a brightening serum to reduce any discoloration on my skin. But they have serums to target any problem you may have with your skin.
Everyone knows this, but always wear a SPF. I use SPF15 every single day, wether I am going to be outside or not. I have a fairly darker skin complexion so I tend to use a lower SPF, but any bit helps! Wearing SPF will help protect your fragile skin from the sun, and It helps protect your skin from aging as fast. ( I luckily do not have that problem yet)
I hope you found these tips helpful! I know a few may be some pretty common things heard around the beauty world, but they really do make a difference!
What other tips do you have?
It is important that we are taking good care of our skin. Good skin = confidence. People should not rely on makeup to feel confident about themselves. But if you have blemish prone skin, it can lead people to feel like they need makeup to cover it up.
I am always looking to try new skin products and this week I invested in Rose Hip Seed Oil. I found mine at a Marshalls in the skin department and I have been loving it so far.
I have normal to oily skin, so putting oil on you skin might seem a little scary. But I honestly can’t even tell its on my skin, as long and you don’t overload on oil.
I have had a little breakout this week, and this little guy have been saving my skin!
I highly recommend trying some!
You can find Rose Hip Seed Oil fairly cheap on amazon.com (here)
