ITEM OF THE WEEK is a weekly series on Stained Couture that highlights a product we’re currently loving. This week: Weleda Skin Food
I just realizes that I’ve been doing Item of the Week for a little over a year. Kind of mind-blowing, because it doesn’t feel like I’ve been doing this for that long. Can you remember the first item I included? Here’s a hint!
So, this week’s Item of the Week is long overdue for a couple of reasons. One reason is because it’s been a minute since I’ve shared an item of the week. The other reason is because I’ve been using, abusing, and loving Weleda’s Skin Food for far too long to not have given it the spotlight it deserves. So, keep reading to see all the reasons this product has been rocking my world.
I’m back to using natural deodorants. For the past couple of years, I’ve been falling in and off natural deodorants. However, for the most part, I’ve been mainly using them for well over a year. Initially, I started using natural deodorants, because I heard and read about some of the dangers of the ingredients in most deodorants and antiperspirant. Although I’m not really sure about those claims, I would rather be safe than sorry. Plus, over these past couple of years I’ve learned tips for wearing natural deodorants.
Since spring is coming soon and (hopefully) bringing her beautiful, warm, and sunny days. Do you use or thinking about using natural deodorant, but concerned with how to stay fresh all day? If so, keep reading for my tips on wearing natural deodorant.
Like most makeup wearers, I worshiped makeup wipe removers. So much so, being able to buy them in bulk made me renew my Sam’s Club card one year. However, my love for them faded the more I learned about the cons of using them. Like with most bad habits, I started to use them again, but with rules. Yes, I created some rules for makeup wipes.
Interested in what these rules are? Well, keep reading, sis!
Despite me trying to relax a little on only using the same products in my skincare routines, I still found a way to create a new routine within the routines. Case in point, my new found addiction to my nightly lip care routine. Yes, I’ve reached a new level in my skin care routine and created one solely for my lips. However, I soon realized that this was LONG overdue.
I used to be like most people and just add a lip balm at night and/or rub my moisturizer over my lips while slathering and rubbing it around my face. It was one-step routine that seemed to do the job. Now? Oh, well, the winter has been going in on my lips. Flaky. Peeling. All of the adjectives you don’t want associated with your lips. So, I’ve added a few more steps and they have been exactly what my lips have been needing. Keep reading to see how I elevated my lip care to help me wake up to soft, smooth, and supple lips.
Like most people, my skin gets more dry in the cold air of winter. Usually, all it takes is a heavier, creamier moisturizer to tackle it. This winter? Oh, my skin was not going for just thicker moisturizers to make my skin look soft and hydrated. I had to try out more specific products and techniques for my dry skin this winter.
Although it took me some unexpected time and money, I know what to do next time my skin wants to act bougie when it’s a winter day and a slight draft. SIDENOTE: It hasn’t even been that cold compared to other years, but my skin wanted to flake up on a balmy 45 degree day. *insert eyeroll* Keep reading to see what products I loved to use to help me beat dry skin this winter.
