I love the kiss me kiss me shade. It is a glossy fuchsia pink shade and it looks good on me. I really like the mix of pink and blue tones. This Lipstick has a nourishing base of shea butter, jojoba and avocado oils, which keep the lips hydrated. I am so in love with this shade and the catchy name.

The NEEK Mystify is a gorgeous cocoa brown shade with a bit of pink. It is made on a lipbalm base of shea butter and jojoba and avocado oils and then coloured naturally with micas and pigments. So it feels amazing on the lips. Especially with this chilly weather.

How to Prevent Sleep Lines

Put your hands up in the air if every time you wake up in the morning to look in the mirror, you see sleep lines and wonder how those got there!

Although sleep is meant to be refreshing and really good for the skin it is possible to see sleep lines on your face. This is due to a couple of factors. Sleep lines happen when you rest your head on a pillow or patterned surface and the imprint of the lines remains on your face when you wake up. The reason is simple: the weight of you head is pressed on that surface for a very long time.

The good news is that there is a remedy. Here are some ways you can prevent sleep lines.

 

Silk or satin pillows cases

Since pillows are the main reasons we get sleep lines then it’s a good idea to start tackling it from there. The fabric of the pillow when creased can cause sleep lines. Switch from cotton pillow cases to silk or satin pillow cases. This is because the silk or satin fabric doesn’t crunch up like the cotton pillow cases do.

 

Sleep on your back

If you’re not within reach of a silk or satin pillow case, then sleeping on your back is the next best option. When you sleep on your side you face touches the pillow case with all the creases on it and you get sleep lines. Sleeping on your back helps you prevent your face from touching the pillows. It may take a little practice especially if you are the type who likes sleeping on your side but it is worth a try.

 

Get the circulation going

When you have sleep lines, one of the best ways to get rid of them is to give the affected areas a good massage. The massage will help increase the circulation of blood going to the affected area and as you massage, the sleep lines disappear. It may take a little while but when you will surely see a change in the appearance of the sleep lines on your face.

Exercise is also another way to get the circulation going. A good cardio workout can help to increase the circulation which will reduce the appearance of sleep lines and it also gives you a good excuse to get started on having a morning workout routine.

Moisturize before going to sleep

Every skin care routine requires that you moisturize. Aside from keeping your skin well hydrated and supple, it helps minimize the presence of sleep lines as well. Night creams work great for sleep lines but if you’re more of a fan of natural products then I recommend you go with coconut oil. A pea size drop of coconut oil will be just right.

To increase the efficacy, massage the coconut oil in your skin in circular motions. Coconut oil contains a lot of beneficial properties for your skin and it will make you skin look healthy and give it a lovely glow when you wake up in the morning.

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!
