Beauty For The Season
With the temperatures dropping and even some snowfall for some of
us, it’s more important now than ever to make sure you’re taking care
of yourself. Not just internally and preventing sickness but also
when it comes to the health of our hair and skin.
Today we will be focusing on skincare.
Skincare is important year round and it’s important to change up
that routine with each season. Now for those of you asking, “Why
do I need to change it if it’s been working”? Well, it’s not
changing it completely, but rather adapting it to the seasons. So
for instance in the Fall, we notice the temperatures dropping and the
air getting drier.
I joined forces with beauty expert Rachel Hayes from
totalbeauty.com to bring you some fun Fall/Winter must-haves and how
they will help our skin look and smell great..
Clearasil has a new line.
This new line features a gel cleanser, exfoliating scrub, and
on-the-go cleansing pads. Were you expecting me to list off items
that fit that cleanse, tone, and moisturize rule? While that is
important this new line is designed to make sure your skin gets the
necessary nutrients since you’re most likely going to be spending
more time indoors with the cold weather. Each product contains 1%
salicylic acid (helps to keep skin clear) and they are also blended
with super fruit extracts like cranberry, raspberry, and vitamin D.
Oh, and make sure to
choose products that are paraben-free. Parabens have been known to
increase the risk of breast cancer. Also paraben allergies can
cause things like skin irritation, contact dermatitis, and rosacea.
They have been known to increase skin aging when combined with
Schick Quattro for Women.
Many of us ladies don’t really think about shaving everyday because
we are in the season of wearing jeans, leggings, boots, and
sweaters. But who wants to let themselves go on to have a hairy
mess as soon as spring comes. Schick Quattro has a new razor out
that will make shaving less of a hassle. It’s high-performance and
has an ergonomically-designed handle for a woman’s wrist. The
conditioning strips contain asai berry (another super fruit…wink
wink) and skin-nourishing Jojoba oils. It will make your skin look
and feel really healthy and radiant.
Asai Berry Benefits:
it has anti-inflammatory properties and can help ease pain caused
by damaged nerve fibres.
Jojoba Oils Benefits:
soothes and moisturizes the skin.
My final beauty
must-have is outside of skincare, but it’s a great way to spice up
that beauty routine for a night on the town, date night, and anything
else fun you might have planned.
Fragrance. We want
to include several senses to give us the confidence to look and feel
good. Every year around this time, we see many conglomerate
companies and celebrities releasing new fragrances. One that is
designed for the strong, confident woman is Katy Perry’s Killer
Queen. It’s playful and daring while bringing out the royalty in
you. The scent has been called addictive and is blended with
jasmine, wild berry, and liquid praline. Perfect for the cold
weather because it’s a warmer scent and a good transition from any
summery floral scents.
To make you feel more like
a queen, the bottle is a queen’s scepter with red and gold jewels.
So whether you are embrace your
inner royalty and involve multiple senses in your beauty routine, try
asking yourself these four questions:

skin looks in the mirror?
