Prepare Your Winter Survival Kit

Winter means humidity won’t kill our sleek styles but it also means hotter showers that can dry our skin and leave us in need of a skin-quencher.

No worries, we’ve assembled the best products that you can use this winter to target dry skin and reduce hair static.

Hands

We can’t stress enough how crucial it is to moisturize your hands. Crucial to our everyday lives, they are always exposed to being damaged and dry whether it be at work with the constant typing and paperwork, overusing hand sanitizer, and exposure to heat and cold. An intense conditioning treatment like the Dermalogica Hand & Nail Treatment is a fast-absorbing treatment that not only hydrates hands, but also maintains nails. Minimize nail peeling and protect skin from environmental damage.

Importance Of A Clean Canvas

Always apply makeup to a clean canvas. It is important to exfoliate, cleanse and tone your skin before putting makeup on. The smoother the surface of your skin, the better the makeup will go on, and the more lustrous it will appear. Plus, you won’t need as much makeup to cover imperfections if you’ve scrubbed them all away!

5 Tips for Healthier-Looking Skin on a Tight Budget

5 Tips for Healthy Skin On A Budget Beautiful skin can be achieved on a budget! Top brands in skin care have gone through a lot of effort to make their products effective, and we understand that. For some of us, it is just not possible with limited funds! So how do people on a budget achieve great skin? Here we feature skin care tips for maintaining healthy and clear skin without putting a dent in your wallet.

Tip 1: Use your kitchen. Your kitchen may already store natural skin care products. Did you know plain yogurt can be used as a face mask for relieving dry skin? It contains moisturizers that sooth irritated, dry or scaly skin. Sugar or salt mixed with olive oil can be used to exfoliate elbows, knees, and feet!

Tip 2: Eat and drink healthy. This is repeated time and time again, but drinking water is good for a reason. If you don’t get enough sleep you will be tired in the morning right? If you don’t drink water, how do you expect your skin to glow and look smooth?

Tip 3: Invest in skin care products you really need and buy them at a deal! Buying several skin care products to treat different skin concerns can put a dent in your wallet. Spend money only on an eye cream for crow’s feet or a treatment for blackheads. We like the Dr. Brandt Pores No More Vacuum Cleaner at $29.99, because it tightens and refines pores enough to make us not want to wear makeup. And it is $15 dollars off its original price!

Tip 4:Avoid the sun! The sun dries out skin and causes serious harm to skin cells. Freckles, dark spots, and wrinkles can come back years later as if your skin is exacting revenge on all the times you left it unprotected. You will not want to look at your skin and regret not taking care of it. As you get older, age, hormones and the environment cause skin to change. Have the upper hand and wear sunscreen. You will be proud of how great your skin looks at any age!

Tip 5:Drink Bloody Mary’s. Drinking less alcohol is great for your skin! But if you won’t listen to this rule at least choose to drink a cocktail that is healthy for you. Bloody Mary’s contains tomato juice, vegetable juice, and turmeric! Turmeric is an Indian spice. It contains powerful antioxidants and it provides anti-inflammatory benefits! This means you may wake up with less puffy eyes and protect your skin’s health. But do not overdo it! It contains alcohol remember?

Reduce the Appearance of Enlarged Pores

Shrink Pore Size with Proper Skin Cleansing and Skin Treatments

Our skin is on display for the entire world to see, and it speaks a language of its own. When you look at someone up close, what do you notice? Our wrinkles, skin texture, and pores clearly express how we do skin care. For example, enlarged pores are small indentations that look like small craters. These small craters can collect oil, dirt, and debris making pores appear large. It can be tempting to empty your purse and get this situation fixed right away, but end up with less money because the products often end up being ineffective. Here are the causes of enlarged pores and skin care products popular for reducing them.

Remember when you were a child; your skin was smooth and soft? When you hit puberty, hormonal changes caused oil production to skyrocket and pores enlarged to handle how much oil was being created. They stay enlarged for years, unless you do something about it, and when women hit menopause, hormonal changes cause pores to shrink back to how they were back in childhood. Enlarged pores are most likely to appear on forehead, nose and chin. Why? Because of improper skin care, oily skin, smoking or sun damage.

First, we know properly cleansing skin and decongesting pores is the best way to keep them from absorbing oils and bacteria. The DDF Revolve 400 X Micro Polishing System guarantees pores are left squeaky clean by providing 8X better exfoliation than a scrub alone, and it also allows for microdermabrasion treatment at home! Dermatologists recommend medical treatments like microdermabrasion to treat enlarged pores. This technique rejuvenates skin with tiny microcrystal particles that remove excess oil and dead skin that accumulates in enlarged pores. An added benefit of microdermabrasion is that it stimulates the growth of collagen!

Steaming will soften debris and is incredibly easy to do this at home. Fill a bowl with hot water and let your pores absorb the steam. Apply a face mask immediately after steaming. An effective pore-purging clay masque like June Jacobs Pore Purifying Mud Masque is ideal because this masque dries after application. It contains antibacterial extracts, antioxidants, and anti-aging ingredients to pull everything that does not belong inside a pore. Thus allowing the pore to breathe and with time (since you will be applying this mud masque regularly) tighten and look less noticeable! It is important for a face mask routine to be formed so that this vital procedure is never skipped or forgotten.

For everyday cleansing of oily skin, Dr. Brandt Pores No More Cleanser refines skin texture with salicylic acid to wash away impurities and tea tree oil and willow bark to soothe skin. It is non-drying, clears blackheads and prevents breakouts and prevents pores from clogging!

You now know why enlarged pores appear. Can you see them?
