After-party Skin Rescue

December 26, 2007

Hi all, I’m sure the party season has left you with hangovers, stained clothes and pretty tired / dull skin! Here’s a little something you can do at home you can do to revive and rejuvenate your skin.1. Drink loads of water and take your multivitamins! Beauty starts from within, and vitamins and Omega-3 oils are vital for your skin to look its best.2. A hydrating mask is a must! Alcohol sucks up all your water and dries you up like a grape, leaving you dehydrated, like a raisin. I swear by my Dermalogica Multivitamin Power Recovery Mask, and SkinCeuticals B5 Hydrating Mask. A hydrating mask will plump up your skin’s lost moisture levels and make our skin glow and look better instantly.3. Do get a body scrub and moisturize yourself well. I love Malin+Goetz Peppermint Body Scrub as the minty feeling of the scrub leaves your skin cool and feeling minty. This instantly perks you up and makes you feel fresh! Of course, moisturizer is always a necessity when you’ve scrubed your skin clean of the dead skin cells. I hope all of you have enjoyed our holidays, and are still feeling the festive spirit. This is the season to reflect on the year that has passed us by, to give and to receive, and to celebrate Christmas with knowing the true meaning behind it. Here’s to wishing all of you a very Happy New Year as well. xoxo

Kiehl’s Lip Balm #1 Limited Edition

December 8, 2007

89027800_l.jpg My favourite lip balm in the world has come up with 3 limited edition flavours! And they are: Pear, Cranberry and Mint. The pear scent is pretty real smelling.. and gives this really fruity smell when you apply it to your lips. The cranberry is sweet, and smells great! My favourite of the 3 is the mint. It smells so fresh and leaves a cooling sensation on my lips when applied. And the great thing is that the cooling sensation lasts for a pretty long time! This is definitely a must-get!

SkinCeuticals Renew Overnight Oily to Combination Skin

December 7, 2007

sk026.jpg Credit: Skinstore.comI think I’ve found an answer for clear skin. This night moisturizer is the best I’ve ever found. It’s got a 10% hydroxy acid (which is actually pretty high) that helps to gently exfoliate the skin and reduce those annoying congestions, zits and bumps on the surface on your skin. There’s also tangerine oil that helps to clear acneic, congested skin. I had loads of zits and breakouts recently due to an enormous amount of stress and using a product that so does not go well with my skin, but that’s another story. Anyway, this goes on light and a little oily. However, it’s formulated FOR oilier skin types, so I highly doubt it that your skin will get clogged up. After a while, you can actually feel your skin getting oilier and oilier, but that’s fine, because, I’m told, that the acid is actually working and the crap from your skin is getting purged out. In the morning, just cleanse with your cleanser that you have for when your skin feels oily (you should have a product for when your skin feels whatever it does.). Actually, you can very gently exfoliate your skin in the morning too…(I like my Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant.)
