Tips for Those with Dry Skin October 6, 2007

I, unfortunately, know all about dry skin from experience. It can be so frustrating to deal with. Thankfully, there are things to do that can really improve the health and appearance of your dry skin.

The number one thing you need if you have dry skin is a face wash that exfoliates. This will get rid of the embarrassing flakiness that is such a plague when you have dry skin. People with other types of skin typically only need to exfoliate once or twice a week … but we dry skin sufferers may need it more often to keep our skin healthy, particularly in winter. Do whatever works best for your skin.

I’ve noticed that the dry, flakiness on the forehead can extend even into the skin under our eyebrows, so make sure to exfoliate in that area as well, being careful not to get anything in your eyes.

A great thing to do that I learned from Michelle Phan is to use an electric toothbrush with your exfoliating face wash. 

If you have sensitive as well as dry skin, make sure any exfoliation product you use is specifically for sensitive skin.

Stay away from thick stick foundation/concealer. These don’t mix well with dry skin. Use liquid or mineral makeup.

 

Tips for Cold Sufferers

Hey guys! I know this blog is supposed to be about beauty … but today I wanted to share something a little different with you. Since we’re heading into cold and flu season I wanted to share a few tips with you that will hopefully help get you through any fall/winter illnesses and get you back to beautiful. 🙂

Always, always, always keep Vicks VapoRub on hand. I use this pretty much whenever I’m sick. Thing is, I don’t like to get it all over my skin, so what I do is I spread a thick layer out on a wash cloth and then lay the cloth over my chest. No mess and you can breath easier.

Also, make sure to put extra moisturizer on. Colds (and all the decongestants that we use along with them) really dry out your skin. Pay close attention to the area around your nose. It’s the first to go with all that wiping!
