Fashion & Style Police Reviews Angela Langford and KALME

It has gone so cold these past few days. I feel like we have completely skipped autumn and go on straight to winter. But knowing how crazy our British weather is, it is likely the chill reduces a little. I hope it does anyway. The cold weather has reminded me to keep my skin in top condition. I am currently dealing with dry skin and very dry lips, so I need to remember the keep drinking water to keep my system hydrated. I have been using Angela Langford Clean Sweep Softening & Smoothing Cleansing Balm for some days now. It is a great skin balm and I am loving it. I have also been using KALME Chameleon Concealer, and will be telling you all about that as well.

Drinkable Skincare? What’s Next?

I have always taken my skincare routine seriously and made sure that I used the right products for my skin. I did go through a lot of trial and error as I came across products that negatively affected my skin.

I’m always on a lookout for products that will provide the best results for my skin with little or no side effects. Which is why I keep a close eye on the latest developments in the beauty industry.

Drinkable Skincare

Recently, I have noticed a trend to embrace a holistic approach to skincare. Taking care of your skin doesn’t end at applying creams, cleansers or oils. Beautiful skin can also be achieved from the inside out. In fact, we have been neglecting that part of our skincare regime.

Nutricosmetics is the latest development in the beauty industry. Imagine eating or drinking your way to healthy, supple and magnificent skin. This is how nutricosmetics work.

Supplements, powders and drinks were developed to enhance the cells in your body which then restores good health to your skin and make it glow. Ingestible skincare products have proven to be pretty effective. These drinkable skincare products contain essential vitamins, antioxidants and minerals that work well on your skin. Some have anti-inflammatory properties, while others contain properties that will boost collagen production in your skin.

Most of the skincare conditions we deal with are caused from immune deficiency or digestive problems. Drinkable skincare products tackle those problems right from the root such that it radiates on your skin. I think it is a brilliant idea!

I love how the the beauty industry evolved from producing topical skincare products to ingestible skincare products. The topical products focus on problems that occur on the surface of your skin. Although there are a lot of products that have recorded considerable success in dealing with blemishes on your skin, they don’t totally eradicate them. Tackling the problem from the outside doesn’t entirely prevent them from reappearing.

Have you ever used a certain product and it felt like it took forever before you were able to see an improvement? That is the problem with topical products and the beauty industry was quick enough to notice this.

 

How Drinkable Skincare Products Work

With drinkable skincare products the contents go straight into the cells causing your skincare condition. Although there were people who came up with their own mixtures, juices or teas to improve their skin, the beauty industry took it a step further by experimenting and studying various skin conditions, their probable causes and the exact components that will help solve the problem at the cellular level.

Their findings helped them come up with the ideal blends that will tackle the problem straightaway instead of leaving everything to guesswork. The beauty industry has helped us to deal with our skin issues with precision.

At the end of the day, this development in the beauty industry has been well-accepted and now you see more and more people drink their way to beautiful skin and healthy bodies. Probably this is the answer to all the frustrations that women have been facing as to glowing skin.

 

What Next?

Constant research is being carried out to develop drinkable products that will work faster and more effectively. As time goes by, we will definitely see more of such products being sold in stores and used in our homes.

What do you think of drinkable skincare products? Have you used any? I have used a few and I think they are fabulous. Please share your thoughts in the comments section below.

10 Ways to Protect your Skin from Winter Dryness

I think we have all experienced the unfortunate occurrence of dry skin in the winter. The cool breeze is constantly blowing on your face and the air is just so dry. Then, you find yourself with a red, chapped, and peeling face. Sometimes, it can seem like this skin mishap is unavoidable, but think again. Here are 10 ways to protect your skin from that unfortunate winter dryness.

 

Moisturize – all the time

Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize. We simply cannot express how important it is to moisturize. Your skin needs to be moisturized to stay soft, smooth, healthy, and glowing.

Of course, you probably know that you should always moisturize before putting your makeup on in the morning. But, did you know you should also moisturize after you wash your face at night?

Ideally, you should moisturize twice each day. Keep a bottle of moisturizer close by so you don’t forget.

Choose your moisturizer carefully

But, with all the moisturizing, you need to make sure you select the best product for your skin. Be careful when choosing your moisturizer because some products have ingredients that might actually dry your skin out even more. Go for a smart formula that uses natural and nourishing ingredients.

 

Use lukewarm water

It can be tempting to wash your face with steaming hot water – it feels good on your skin. But, in the winter, the warm water strips away the oils from your skin.

However, by lowering the temperature just a little bit and using lukewarm water for your shower and to wash your face and hands, you will find that your skin maintains that natural oil it needs to stay soft.

 

Drink plenty of water

It is easy to get in enough water when it is hot outside, but it becomes difficult when it is cold as we drink more coffee and tea. But, don’t forget that your skin needs hydration from the inside too – not just from the outside like it gets through moisturizing.

 

Hydrate through various methods

In addition to drinking plenty of water, you should also practice other ways of hydrating from the inside, out. During the winter, focus on eating foods high in water content such as vegetables like cucumbers and tomato.

 

Use DIY masks

Aside from moisturizing, another great way to ensure your skin is getting enough hydration is to use homemade masks during the winter months.
Most DIY masks use household items that are great for naturally moisturizing the skin and providing it with nutrients to protect it from the dry air.

Exfoliate

Don’t forget that getting rid of dead skin cells is another important step to protecting your skin from the dry winter air. Once you exfoliate, follow immediately with your chosen moisturizer.

 

Protect your skin

Taking preventative measures like moisturizing and hydrating your skin are great ways to avoid dry skin in the winter. But, another sure-fire way to avoid dry skin is to protect your skin by covering it up using gloves, hats, and scarves.

 

Humidify your home

While the air might be dry outside, you likely don’t think about how dry it also gets in your home. Having the heater on inside dries the air out even further – leading to more dry skin.

To help prevent this, add a humidifier to your home to moisturize the air a little bit while still keeping your home warm.

 

Change your cleanser

Cleansers can be one of the main reasons you experience dry skin. During the winter months, look for a cleanser that is hydrating and provides more moisturizer than your typical cleanser.

It will be much less frustrating to take care of your skin from the beginning rather than trying to fix it once it is already dried out.

 

By following these few simple tips, you can be on your way to moisturized skin – even in the winter!
