Exfoliation Revisited. March 3, 2008

I just wanted to talk about exfoliation again because I’ve learned some new things about it since I talked about it last year.

The main thing that I want to mention is that you shouldn’t be exfoliating very often or with anything harsh if you have sensitive skin because it is really, really irritating for the skin and can bring on more problems than it’s worth.

A rash is not the only thing that indicates sensitive skin. In addition to more allergic reactionish things, broken veins, redness, and even acne are signs that your skin is delicate. You can have just one symptom or all of them – and anywhere in between. So, if you have any of those symptoms or any combination of them, you really need to rethink skin care.

I personally have sensitive skin and I have dropped exfoliating down to only once a week.  I still feel like I need a little help since I do have dry skin, but I don’t want to be too rough. I definitely wouldn’t want to use a brush or anything super harsh to my poor skin (that’s not really all the recommended anyway).

So, take a closer look at your skin and decide whether you think you need to continue exfoliating.


Tips for Cold Sufferers October 6, 2007

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!
