Winter tends to take a toll on everyone’s skin making it dry & withered. And if neglected it can lead to flaking, hyperpigmentation, itching & cracking. In the long run it can also cause wrinkles and premature aging.
I’m always on the look out for the perfect formula that can fight dryness & keep the skin looking healthy even in bleak times. Here, I’ve rounded up few of my favourites in no particular order.
CeraVe Moisturising Cream
A heavy duty moisturiser with hyaluronic acid & ceramides that restore the skin’s natural barrier to protect from dryness & irritation, it does more than just moisturise. It is also recommended by dermatologists for extreme dryness & eczema.
Yes! Wedding season has officially begun. If your mailboxes, overflowing with invites isn’t proof enough look around and you’ll see love in the air. Speaking of which reminds me of the humidity that lingers in the air. It sure can turn any event into a horror show with messy hair & patchy makeup.
But of course every problem has a solution. Here are a few simple steps that you can incorporate and you are good to go!
First things first. Priming the skin before you go in with other products not only fills in pores and imperfections but also provides a texture that make products stick to the skin better.
Refrain from piling on a ton of products. Patience and a light hand goes a long way. Build up on the coverage a little at a time so as to avoid caking on too much. Heaping on foundation and concealer in an attempt to conceal discolouration can make the area look ashy and start creasing in no time. A dab of colour corrector can cancel out the discolouration before going over with the foundation and concealer.
Yayyy!! We’re turning one! And what better way to celebrate than with a round up of a few favourites.
Here, we have a mixed bag of products I’ve been obsessing over lately.
1. Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector
For that subtle glow that puts your face on the spotlight. It’s ultra fine texture does not show as specks of glitter when applied. It is the holy grail that we have all been looking for, for that perfect dewy look without appearing slick & oily. This shade in CHAMPAGNE POP is perfect for Olive / Indian skin tones.
Huda’s formulation of liquid matte lipsticks are comparatively less sticky & are giving competitors a run for their money. They are extremely pigmented with a very smooth application. A little goes a long way. This shade in GOSSIP GIRL is a pretty pink, the epitome of summer.
Kiehl’s has always been known for its game changing products sans any harmful chemicals. And this natural elixir is nothing short of magic. Infused with lavender, which is known for it’s relaxing properties it works wonders on dull skin when used about thrice a week.
Chanel’s range of precision lip definers are extremely long lasting with no tug during application. The blending brush on the other end is an added bonus. This shade in 55 blends perfectly with summer-y pink shades.
A bold fragrance that makes an instant statement , it creates an explosion with exotic top notes and ripples down to a beautiful feminine scent as it ages on the skin. The metallic packaging adds to its appeal.
8. Burt’s Bees Peach & Willow Bark Deep Pore Scrub
The universal appeal of Burt’s Bees products is the fact that they are manufactured using naturally sourced ingredients. The peach and willow bark scrub has a slightly runny consistency that glides over the skin easily. The natural gritty texture is perfect for deep pore cleansing. The quantity is enough to last a couple of months when used once a week on dry skin.
