It’s Raining Men !

Not really, it’s mostly just sprinkling.

 

Just a gentle reminder to all– DON’T BLAST THE CAR HEATERS IN YOUR FACE ! I know it’s tempting, but it is what will most definitely dry out your skin the most quickly. And in this weather, you don’t want that ! It’s colder and colder and I know you’re all rushing to be warm, but it’s not gonna be worth it once your skin starts overproducing oil to compensate…. Breakouts are never fun. Especially when the breakouts are in the midst of dry, flaky skin. So, do yourself a favor, turn on the defroster instead (It heats up your car but doesn’t aim the warm air at you) and moisturize your face with a non-oil-based moisturizer.

 

If your skin is feeling really dry, do an oil-based, but be wary. The dry weather can make your skin overreact and you don’t wanna add to the buildup. Just be skin conscious and you’ll be fine !

 

As always, message me with questions, and good luck with finals and end-of-the-year tidings.

Fall 2013~

Good morning to all !

As of recent, we’ve started to feel a weather change–fall gusts of wind, the nighttime temperature drops, the overcast mornings which beg the aid of a down comforter and a mug of coffee, tea, hot chocolate; whatever works. And this feeling also brings an environmental change; cold air with the immediate aid of warm air (ie. The brisk walk to your car in the mornings, followed by a blast of heater air). Perhaps you have also begun to feel a familiar dryness in your skin, I know I have. 

I urge everyone to take proactive steps to combat this before it really hits ! Thankfully we’ve had our warm pockets still, however those will get less and less frequent as the months wane on. I recommend Dermalogica’s “Skin Hydrating Booster” for this cold weather, as well as “Barrier Repair”, should you be in windier climates. 

And, as always, don’t forget your sunscreen. Just because it’s cloudy doesn’t mean you’re escaping those UV rays.
