My Life in Words
I love to talk. Being vulnerable helps me heal. Documenting it is cathartic for us all.
Happy Friday y'all! Today I thought I'd switch it up a bit and post some of my favorite beauty tips, to end the week! During the winter I find I need a little extra push to break through cold weather blues. I love these products and they've become my "go-to" winter jam!
What are they?? Here are my Top 3:
-My eye and dry duo
-My at home blowout duo
-My winter lip duo
First up...Eye and Dry duo. Winter leaves my skin, and lashes feeling brittle and chapped at times, but since I introduced the following into my routine, those symptoms are GONE! What are the steps? I've got you covered.
(A few nights a week in addition to my regular R+F routine) I start with my MicroDerm paste on my face. This product is the bomb (yes people still say that lol). The paste offers great EXFOLIATION, which combats the dry skin and promotes cell regeneration!! It's a salt and sugar scrub and safe for the whole body, and even the kiddos. (I like to use it on my piggies in between pedis)
Next, after my skin is dry I like to condition my lashes with coconut oil. Not only does it smell delicious, it softens lashes and promotes healthy regrowth. I follow this with my Multifuction eye cream, R+F PM moisturizer and call it a night!
When I wake up, my face looks and FEELS fresh and can I say BYE BYE bags!!
Next up, is my AT HOME Blowout duo. First things first...we never can quite recreate what our incredible stylists do, but this right here gets you pretty close!!
First, to wet hair, I apply my Amika Bombshell Blowout spray. Smells awesome and is very light. My fine hair can't take anything heavy or my hair goes limp.
Next, I man handle this beast of a brush to create a fresh look. (Separate hair for best results, and start with under and work out. It takes a couple times but you'll get it) This brush is key. I've tried smaller ones and they just don't cut it. Buy it. Immediately. Thank me later.
Last, right around the front and crown I spray a little Water Killer by Evo, this powder spray gives me that gritty volume I love, but can only get after 4 days of not washing my hair. (OMG I'm obsessed with the dry shampoo and I apologize in advance for the boat loads of cash you'll fork out for this must have, I can truly go 4 days without washing my hair...Don't judge) I let it sit for a couple of minutes and then turn my head upside down shake and back up, and BOOM, beautiful blowout in your own bathroom!
Lastly, my lip duo. Do your lips chap hard during the winter? Mine too. Even more so since I moved to New England. I recommend the following for supple lips all winter (and year) long.
At night, I start with clean lips, then I use my Lip MicroDerm stick for gentle exfoliation. Exfoliation is key ALL OVER the body if you want to keep things fresh and looking young.
I finish with a capsule of Lip serum. This leaves my lips silky and smooth. It evens plumps my lips while I sleep too!! Winning.
I appreciate you stopping by and I hope you try some of these winter savers soon!
