Happy Sunday everyone!!!
Hope June has been good to you?!
For my post today, I compiled a list of Spring Summer 2015 Must-Haves. It’s the Beauty Edition. It includes basic beauty products and make-up tools every girl should consider adding to her beauty collection.
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, then you should know that every girl that takes her appearance seriously should have one of these. They protect you from harmful UV-rays from the Sun and dirt floating around in the polluted air. Presently, I’m still using the Trish McEvoy Beauty Booster cream i got in ‘January’, 6 months guys! Talk about longevity. It is an all-in-one facial cosmetic product that can serve as a serum, moisturizer, primer, foundation and sunblock.
After a bath in the morning or at night, try to use a facial toning lotion or cream. They tighten cell pores preventing impurities and contaminants in the air from penetrating the skin. The pH of our skin, usually acidic, is distorted from the use of soaps which are normally alkaline. Toners help to restore the pH, refresh and moisturize the skin.
“Toners are most helpful and necessary for people with oily or acne-prone skin, or for people who want extra cleansing after wearing makeup”. I’m currently using the Tea tree and Witch hazel cleansing & toning lotion from Boots.
Toning Brushes For Face and Body
You’re coming home after work or school and you know that you have to cleanse, tone and do the entire skin care routine before going to bed, but you’re so tired. Toning brushes are beauty tools that exfoliate and tone the skin, they are very easy to use and quite handy, making it simple to keep a healthy fresh face and body. Once you use this brush, you don’t have to use facial or body scrubs any more. At the moment, I have a crush on the cute pink Magnitone Lucid brush.
“Magnitone Lucid is powered by Active Electromagnetic Technology™. Enhanced electromagnetic pulsations that send rapid vibrations into skin. They naturally unclog pores, and sweep away dry and dead skin cells, leaving a clearer complexion. With over 10,000 movements per minute, your skin is better prepared to absorb all your skincare products.”
Despite the fact that they are either electrical or battery powered, they are waterproof and affordable. The head carrying the brush comes with a translucent lead, so you can cover it up after using and cleaning it. Use it with your favourite cleansing gel for the best result.
After all the scrubbing, toning and cleansing, restore moisture to your face by using a moisturizer best suited for your skin type. Moisturizers usually contain complex chemical components that make the external layer of the skin (epidermis) softer and supple. They improve the skin’s hydration (water content) by decreasing evaporation from the skin surface. I have oily skin, so I stay away from any product that is oil-based because they’ll cause me to ‘break out’ even more. At the moment, I’m using the same Trish McEvoy beauty booster cream in the morning and Trish McEvoy beauty booster serum at night.
Another nice affordable moisturizer is coconut oil. If you have dry or normal skin, you can use organic coconut oil on your face, hair and body. It leaves your skin feeling pliable and tender.
I hope that this post will inspire all my sisters in the house to keep these beauty products and tools in mind when they next go shopping.
Thanks again for reading my post today,
You motivate me to do more.
Until next time,
