Life is full of surprises. Just when you think you’ve got it together, something (or someone) comes along and turns it all upside down. Well today, ladies, I’m that someone. I’m going to point out a few mistakes many of us make in our daily beauty routines—and show you how to fix them.
Here comes the sun (screen)! You know it’s not good for your skin, but no matter how many times you’re reminded, you still don’t apply sunscreen before heading out for the day. Let me urge you again. Even when it’s cloudy, you need to protect your skin from the sun! Pick up a nice, non-greasy sunscreen such as Reviva Labs Light Cream Sun Protective Moisturizer, which protects and moisturizes skin all in one step. Apply it before putting on your makeup—every day!
Put the brakes on…breakouts. Days full of work, taking care of kids and constant go, go, go leaves little time for skincare. But skipping steps in your facial routine—or not having one at all—can trigger blemishes and breakouts. I don’t know about you, but I like to keep things easy. Nature’s Gate makes a handy three-step Acne Treatment System that includes a corrective cleanser, calming toner and controlling lotion. It’s geared toward those with problem skin, but the all-natural ingredients make it a great choice for anyone.
Don’t Let Your Hair Down. It’s counting on you! Neglecting your tresses leads to dryness, dullness and split ends. Once a week, use a clarifying shampoo, such as Avalon Organics Clarifying Shampoo with Lemon and Shea Butter, to remove product buildup and excess oil. Then follow with a deep-conditioning treatment to restore moisture, balance and shine. Avalon Organics Deep Moisturizing Conditioner Awapuhi Mango Therapy is made with fruit and herb extracts, plus wheat protein to strengthen and protect strands.
