Today I’m sharing a few beauty tips beauty items I’d had the chance to try over the past month. I thought you might enjoy hearing what I’m loving and what I had to have in my purse-handbag when traveling.
Winter can be harsh indoors it’s nice and cozy then head outside and brr it’s cold, windy…. Some of these products can be used year round but, are especially helpful in the winter months when you have to hydrate and moisturize. Two keys to keeping your skin and hair looking great.
Before heading out I always wash my face, moisturize and put on a light foundation cover-up with the addition of a lipstick or lip balm. I don’t have flawless skin. Plus with aging I’m putting up my fists and taking better care of my skin by hydrating.
I’ve said it before but, I wish I would of really started a beauty regimen when I was a lot younger. You just have to find the right products for your skin and of course steer clear of the sun. (when it’s out and use sunscreen or makeup with sunscreen.)
Beauty tips for your skin
First up I had the chance to try L’Oreal Age Perfect Cell Renewal. It’s focusing on mature, dull skin. If you have younger skin you might like to read this beauty post after reading the other beauty tips below. I liked a lot of things about this creamy moisturizer. It’s a bit thicker, goes on easy, feels light after on. You just apply a little adding it to your skin in a circular motion. You can easily apply makeup right over it. Use a little it goes a long way.
What’s this product suppose to do for you?
- hydrate skin and look healthier
- Skin feels smoother and looks rejuvenated
In four weeks:
- Skin appears renewed
- Skin is visibly younger
I have been using this beauty product for about 4 weeks, daily. I’m not sure how much younger this makes me look but, I know my skin does look and feel healthier. Much softer and younger feeling. I have about half the jar left after 4 weeks. This beauty product has Imperial Peony and LHA (which helps with skin renewal by removing dead skin cells)
One thing I didn’t like about it was it’s rosy tone. It’s a super light color but, rosy isn’t what I need. I will never be able to go without makeup, my skin isn’t perfect. Add aging, a few red spots, and scaring. Yeah, makeup is my bestie for my face. It just gives me that confidence and polish I like for going out. With that said, when applying makeup over the moisturizer it doesn’t affect the coverage. Have you tried L’Oreal Age Perfect Cell Renewal? How did you like it?
Beauty Tips For Your Hair and Skin
For my hair this time of year it gets frizzies. I tend to blow dry it more because I don’t want to go outside with wet hair in the cold. Yes, straightening my hair can help smooth out the wave and frizzies but, that can damage your hair too. Drying out even more. That’s when I reach for a nice Argan Oil. What’s great about Argan oil is that it can also be used on your hands,nails and beards. Win/win. It hydrates your skin and hair.
I love 100% Argan Oils and this one I tried works great and there is no scent! Actually Organic Argan Oil. It comes in a nice bottle with a spray top. Which is perfect for spritzing to add to your hair! Hello shine, goodbye frizzies.
I’ve tried plenty of pour types and they are good. But, I’ve really like the spray feature, not to mention the results. See my winter dry hands in above picture vs this one. It adds hydration and a little glow. Don’t forget to use this on your elbows too.
- Don’t expect the Argan Oil to come out in a mist form. It’s not diluted. It comes out like a sprayed drop.
I prefer to spray it into my hand and rub onto my hair starting below the scalp area. This helps keep your hair from looking greasy. Use a brush to run it through the strands of your hair. This product is great anytime of year.
For my winter my must have beauty items are;
- Hand Sanitizer (Kills more than 99.99 percent of germs, naturally) On the go we use these travel sized hand sanitizer that is lightly scented)
- Burts Bees Moisturizing Lip Balm (Infused with Beeswax, a natural skin conditioner, and Vitamins E to moisturize)
- Or Chapstick
- Gold Bond Healing Hand Cream
What are some of your cool weather beauty tips?
