EMPTIES: February 2020 | STAINED COUTURE

The last few weeks have felt like we are on a snowball ride through hell, but here we are. Hopefully, everyone is taking all the precautions that they can, which can be hard. However, some of us still have to go to work and live the same life we’ve been living for years, but with extra sanitizers. I have to admit, trying to stay afloat on all the information that is constantly churning out has been exhausting. Now, I’m ready to get back to my usual stuff – sharing content.

IOTW: Supergoop Sunscreen – Glow Screen

ITEM OF THE WEEK: Supergoop sunscreen – Glow Screen

IOTW: Supergoop Sunscreen Glow Screen | STAINED COUTURE

A couple of weeks, in a sudden wave, some of my fave influencers shared the release of Supergoop’s Glow Screen. I can honestly say that I rarely “run out” to grab a new product, especially due to “influencers”. However, I was influenced hard and ran to Sephora on my lunch break that same day to pick it up. Sidenote: having a Sephora and an Ulta less than a 3 minute drive from my job is becoming too much. Let’s get back to this sunscreen.

As a firm believer in wearing sunscreen daily, I feel like I can never have too many. Yet, I feel like I have too many, but this one is different from the rest. This sunscreen has talent! Keep reading to see what that means.

Add a Muscle Cream to Your Nightly Routine ASAP

Currently, I don’t have a job where I spend 8 hours a day sitting in front of a computer. Before the job that I have now, I spent almost 8 years having to sit in front of 2 computer monitors all day. Now, my jobs call for me to have to stand, walk, and climb stairs occasionally, which my health appreciates. Unfortunately, that also means that have more nights when my body, especially legs, feel tired and sore. Enter a nighttime routine that now involves muscle creams and things. Yep, I’m that old, folks.

Muscle Creams in Nightly Routine | STAINED COUTURE

Yes, on most nights after a long day at work or when I remember that I have a gym membership, I will break out a muscle cream. Well, it’s not always a cream, because I do have a couple of solid and liquid options.

Scalp Lotion I’m Obsessed With Right Now

When it comes to growing healthy hair, it definitely starts at the roots. A clean, moisturized scalp is a huge factor in helping you grow your hair. Therefore, I try to give my scalp just as much attention as my ends – they both need attention. One product that I use on my hair every night is a scalp lotion.

Kamedis Scalp Lotion for Healthy Scalp | STAINED COUTURE

I’ve used a couple of scalp creams over the last year, which helped my hair grow more than a couple of inches in less than a year. The current scalp lotion that I’ve been using and loving is the one from Kamedis. Keep reading to see why I’ve been fancying this one over my other options.

The first reason is because I’ve yet to meet a Kamedis product that my skin didn’t love. I still love and use the Kamedis acne products, which have yet to let a breakout beat me. So, I felt confident in that I would love this product, too.

Most scalp creams I’ve used had a thicker consistency, but this one is thin and creamy. Weird, but true. So, it works in my hair, no matter if my hair is straight or curly. Plus, it absorbs into the scalp pretty fast, which doesn’t mess up a straighten style. Now, let’s talk about the moisturizing factor, because it’s amazing. This makes my scalp feel clean and moisturized. You apply the scalp lotion at night, before bed. This allows the lotion to moisturize your scalp and prevent dandruff.

I recently had my hair dyed, which can make your scalp become dry. Well, I didn’t give it a chance to happen, because I started using this immediately. So, my scalp hasn’t been dry, flaky, or itchy. Actually, one day, the back of my head was a little itchy. However, I realized that I forgot to apply the cream the night before. The itchiness stopped, as soon as I rubbed a little scalp cream over it.

You might be wondering about build-up. Well, this doesn’t create any build-up, because the lotion instantly absorbs into the scalp. Needless to say, every morning after using the Kamedis Scalp Lotion, I wake up to a clean and moisturized scalp. Makes daily hair care a lot easier. You can purchase Kamedis products and their scalp lotion at kamedis-usa.com
