It’s quite easy to maintain the natural shine of your skin if you know how to moisten it and what products to use for it. During summer and winter months, your skin requires a special care. You need to choose skin care products paying attention to the properties of its ingredients. Since many men name “beauty” one of the main reasons to date a girl from Ukraine, we asked these gorgeous women how they take care of their skin and here is what they recommend buying during your next beauty shopping.
1. Lip balm with oil
Your lips are the only part of the body that isn’t hydrated naturally. It means that you can’t do without additional products if you want soft and moisturized lips. Lip balms containing such natural ingredients as beeswax and coconut oil have the perfect moisturizing properties that prevent and heal dry, chapped lips. If you use a lipstick on a daily basis, apply lip balm as a base in order to protect lips from changes in temperature and harmful ingredients contained in the lipstick.
2. Natural hydration
Hydration is the key to beautiful winter skin. Drink enough water, cut down on caffeine and soda you usually drink during the day. Natural hydration can be achieved not only by consuming water but also by using beauty products based on water or natural oils. If you want to have soft and glowing skin, use premakeup moisturizers. Make sure they contain only natural ingredients. You can also use essential oils as a cheaper alternative to moisturizing face creams. A few drops of mandarin or almond oil will make your skin look fresh, toned, and hydrated. Don’t forget to use the sunscreen every time you leave your house, even in winter.
3. Matting without powder or foundation
Powder and foundation can cause dryness of the skin, especially during those seasons when your skin needs hydration. That is why you should refuse these products. There is a healthy way to mattify your skin using blotting paper. It rids your skin of excess sebum or oil, cleans and refreshes your face, and prevents spots.
4. Quality oils
There are different organic oils for different skin types. Each of them has its own consistence, so all you need to do is to choose the one that is right for you. Jojoba oil is the best choice for a hypersensitive skin since it is hypoallergenic. Seed and flower oils are also good for face care. Natural face oils not only moisturize the skin but also repair dry skin and combat acne scars.
5. Lip scrubs
Lips need exfoliation the same as face skin. You can buy a lip exfoliating scrub or make a DIY scrub of sugar. Use a kids toothbrush to apply the scrub or just rub sugar into your lips with your fingers. Remember lip scrub should be very gentle since lip skin is very delicate and easy to damage.
6. Aroma bath
Using essential oils in a bath is a great way not only to relax but also to improve your skin. Each essential oils has its own properties and if properly combined, their effect can reach the deep levels of skin. Use lavender, chamomile, and almond oils to remove irritation and soothe the skin and ylang-ylang, patchouli, and mandarin oils to refresh and tone up your skin.
7. Facial exfoliator
Using a scrub twice a week or even every day has a lot of advantages. First of all, when you apply it rubbing your skin thus massaging and stimulating blood flow. As a result your skin gets resilient and toned up. Secondly, it removes the old layer of dead skin and makes your skin cells “breathe” getting enough oxygen. You can make a facial scrub at home using a spoon of sugar and coconut or lemongrass oil.
