Skin Tip: Saving Hands!

If you are experiencing dry hands this season, follow these guidelines:

1) Wash with warm water, not hot as this further strips your dry skin.

2) If you’re hands are not cracked, use a mixture of sugar and coconut oil to exfoliate your hands at night.

3) Follow up with your favorite body butter or hand cream and if needed, use gloves to seal in moisture.

Have a great weekend!

Skin Tip: Simple Sugar Lip Scrub!

Treat your lips to a sweet treat this Valentine’s Day weekend with an easy scrub.  Just combine small amounts of sugar (brown sugar also works) and honey, apply the mixture on your lips and buff away dead and flaky skin.  Remove with warm water and top it off with your favorite lip balm.  The end result?  A soft, kissable pout.  Bonus: Your lip color will apply more smoothly and evenly.

Personal update:  I know I have been MIA for the last few days and I apologize but I was slammed with some kind of variation of the flu.  I’ve been battling a stubborn fever, congestion that makes my head feel it’s ready to explode and a painful ear infection. 😦 I know I have some catching up to do and comments to get back to so please bear some patience-I will get back to you. 🙂

I hope all of you have a lovely weekend and thank you for the support.

Skin Tip: Irritated Skin

milk2

If you have a minor irritation/reaction to a product, using a cotton pad dipped in cold regular milk can soothe irritation and calm any redness. Leave on for 10-15 minutes and rinse. Make sure you aren’t allergic to dairy.

*If you have a major reaction, such as blistering or hives, contact your primary physician or dermatologist and follow their instructions; taking a Benadryl may help symptoms but again, ask your physician if it’s okay.

Until next week,
