In case you haven’t caught on, I’m a huge a skincare and beauty products junkie. It’s a pretty serious relationship, because I always make space and room for them in my home and life. Hell, they even have their own closet. However, over the years, I’ve gotten very particular about what products I introduce into my life. There’s a pretty intense vetting system I use before trying new beauty products out, because skin can be very sensitive at times. Okay, it can be sensitive at most times and I know.
Therefore, I have some things I do before I try a new product. In doing so, it saves me time, money, and outbreaks trying to decide what my skin loves and hates. Keep reading to see the things I do before I try a new beauty product.
One of my favorite steps in my skincare routine is applying toner. Toners are awesome, because they help tone and soothe your skin. However, they also help assure you that your face is cleans preps your skin for the next step of a serum and/or moisturizer. I love it, but I never thought to think about toners for your body. Needless to say, now that I know body toners are a “thing”, that’s all I want to try.
Just like face toners, body toners are used to help tone your skin and, at times, treat it. Currently, I’ve been doing the absolute most with my nightly showers with all of my layers of cleansing and moisturizing. I guess I can squeeze in one more step, especially if it will have my body glowing like slick seal laying out in the sun. #SkinGoals
Last week, I felt like I was living on an arctic tundra. Take it that I’ve never been on an arctic tundra, but I imagine it resembled my city last week. All the snow, ice, and below freezing temperatures proved too much for my hair, skin, and nails. After trying every product I owned that claimed to hydrate and moisturize, there was only one product that did; coconut oil. When you have a closet full of beauty products in luxe packaging with claims to blow your mind, you can forget about that jar white solid oil in the pantry.
To be honest, coconut oil has been transforming my life, inside and out, for years now. However, I use it more for my exterior than interior. Keep reading to see the ways that this miraculous oil has been upgrading my everyday life.
One of the first things you are told to never do to your skin is to use a bar soap. The main reason why is because bar soaps made your skin look and feel dry. This can be very true, but only depends on the type of soap you used.
If your interested in trying a bar soap to cleanse your face, check out these suggestions first. Plus, you can use some of these on your body and even hair, too.
I’m human, therefore, I’m not perfect. I’ve discussed the skincare mistakes that I’ve made over the years before. However, some of them I still do regularly and will probably keep doing over time.
Keep reading to which skincare mistakes I make and why.
