winter wonderland

So in NZ winter is starting to set in and that only means one thing for your skin!

WELCOME DRYNESS!

Never fear!

Here are some simple remedies:

  • CLEANSE WITH HONEY – not only will this add more moisture into your skin with it will lock in any that is already present on your skin!
  • REMOVE MAKE UP WITH OIL- more moisture while cleansing? that’s right! oil is the way to go on this ladies!
  • MOISTURISE WITH VITAMIN E OIL OR A SERUM OF SOME SORT – this will really help to penetrate all the levels of the skin to gain great moisturise and lock it in for as long as this change passes
  • Lastly, AVOID DRYING MASKS – these include clay masks, citrus masks, and any mask that is sure to feel tight after the first 15-20 mins. Instead, try plain honey or milk/yoghurt

 

Try these tips and have great skin for the new season đŸ™‚

These are great inexpensive ideas that are sure to work!

Happy new week!

Another week beginning and its time for the weekly suggestions update:

This week is all about your skin care routine!

Start small.

Make sure of 2 things at least:

1. Cleanse

2. Moisturize

Morning and night please ladies!

The dirt from the day and oils from the night will create bacteria and this is why it is so important.

Intermediate:

1. Cleanse

2. Tone

3. Moisturize

4. Sun protection

5. Exfoliate once a week

Why>>

  • Toning closes pores after washing and takes off any extra/excess dirt from the skin
  • Sun protection delays aging and skin pigmentation
  • exfoliating helps with skin cell turnover, blood circulation and helps get rid of skin imperfections (acne, blemishes, scarring, blackheads)

Experts:

1. Cleanse

2. Tone

3. Moisturize

4. Sun protection

5. Exfoliate once a week

6. Mask once a month

>> as well as this, some may like microdermabrasions (great for clearing scars, blemishes and creates an amazing natural glow to your skin)
