Love the skin you're in

Well good morning, it’s raining here in NYC and I am sick, but determined to get my blog post up. And today we are talking about SKIN!

For all you beauties out there that love makeup but wonder why it doesn’t always too good; well Picasso wouldn’t paint on a jacked up canvas and NEITHER should you!

Here are some basic tips to care for your skin

Cleanse: This prepares your face for everything that will follow (lotion, primer makeup etc)

Wet your face with luke-warm water, then cleanse with your favorite cleanser and rinse with cool water. Exfoliate if you like 1-2 times a week (especially dry skin) This allows for a deep cleaning. :-)

Oily skin- go for a oil-free gel or foaming cleanser

*But remember not to scrub your oily areas; this will irritate the skin causing it to overproduce oil [sebum]. And moisturize more on cheeks and less on t-zone.*

Make sure ALL PRODUCTS YOU USE ARE OIL FREE!!! Keep blotting papers on hand!

Dry skin- go for a cream based cleanser

*Don’t completely dry face, allow water to to soak in and naturally moisturize your skin. Never use very hot water as this will dry out the skin more.*

Combo skin- go for a cleanser made specifically for combo skin.

Again, moisturize more on cheeks and less on t-zone.*

Sensitive skin- go for a cream or lotion that is hypoallergenic and allergy tested.

MOISTURIZE

Dry skin-go for a cream formula if you are prone to break outs go for an oil-free moisturizer.

Oily skin-go for a gel or serum only in the dry areas

Sensitive skin- go for something light. Oil free and fragrance free will be best for you

BEFORE I GO A FEW MORE TIPS;

Never sleep with makeup on. It will sink into your pores and cause breakouts.

Use wisdom; don’t purchase a product that is not made for your skin type.

Use caution when applying hair products; leave in conditioners and products containing petroleum and mineral oil CLOG PORES.

At the end of the day, wipe your cellphone with a make-up remover wipe, or towel with 99% alcohol on it.

Wash/change pillowcases often; products from hair and dust and other thing get on there and then get on your face.

The sun is not racist so uses a moisturizer with SPF of 15 or above, they make waterproof ones if you are active. Protect yourself from its rays

Instead of using foundation EVRYDAY try a tinted moisturizer WITH SPF added. (Aveeno)

Muahs!
