Summer Makeup Tips

Published on by

LippyLadies … its summer time so put away all of those winter make up trends. Yes, we all loved our dark red oxblood lips and our heavy contour, but now it’s time to have some fun. This summer is all about “the natural glowing bronzy skin,” the florescent lipsticks, and the pastels.

Before we go any further I want you to change your thinking. We hear women say all the time “Oh! I can’t wear bright lipsticks with my skin tone” or “Lipstick makes my teeth look yellow.” Ladies I assure you everyone can rock a colored lip, the key is to finding the color that suits you the best! Don’t be afraid to try on many colors until you find the one that you fall in love with. Pastels and fluorescents are so on trend right now! Step outside of your comfort zone and pick up the pinks, oranges, and the purples!

We suggest butter LONDON Lippy Liquid Lipstick-Primrose Hill Picnic or Stila After Glow Lip Color – Tangerine Dream.

Swap out your typical foundation routine for a bronzer and a colorful blush. I want your skin glowing ladies, you’ll be surprised how much younger you’ll look and feel! Summer is a time to be free and have fun, so why not look good while doing it? Next time you’re shopping pick up these summer necessities that will add a pop of color to your life! You’ll thank me later.

 


Stay Hydrated While in Flight

Published on by

Long flights not only invade your sense of comfort, but they also aggressively deplete your levels of moisture, leaving your skin looking dull and lackluster. Here are a few product recommendations to soothe and hydrate your skin while you’re traveling:

NUXE Serum Creme Fraiche 24hr Soothing and Moisturizing Concentrate. This product absorbs nicely and provides 24 hour moisture leaving the skin toned, refreshed and hydrated all day long. Use morning and night a few days before and after you flight for prevention and maintenance.

Phytomer Marine Breeze (Souffle Marin) Energizing Oxygenating Serum.
This is a smart choice. Considering the less than great air circulating through the main cabin on a plane, this marine based serum actively neutralizes environmental aggressors and helps to defend the skin by re-oxygenating itself for a fresher appearance.

Jane Iredale Balance Antioxidant Hydration Spray.
Stow this baby in your purse and use it throughout the flight. A quick spritz and the antioxidant compound will help for your skin to resist any microbial and free radical harm.


The Perfect Faux Tan

Published on by

Do you stay away from self-tanners because of the streaks, complexity of application, or because you turn every color but tan?  Here are a few tips that are sure to make your self-tanning project simpler and effective.

Preparation:   Keeping your skin in good condition will help your cause when it comes to hitting your perfect self-tan. Try to follow the mantra and moisturize every day when you step out the shower or before you hit the sack. Patchy, dry skin just won’t respond well to a faux glow.

Exfoliate:  I’m sure you’ve heard this one many times before, but I can’t stress enough just how important it is to gently scrub skin before you tan, to lift all those dead skin cells and reveal revitalized, ready-to-tan skin beneath. Applying fake tan to dry, uneven skin will simply leave you patchy and desperate to cover up, not show off your tan.rodial

Moisturize:  Be sure to slather your body top-to-toe in moisturizer before you fake it, but do remember to let it fully sink in before you begin applying your tan enhancer. Be sure to pay particular attention to wrists, elbows, ankles, knees and feet – any areas that can get dry and need extra moisture.

Glove up:  The tell-tale sign you’ve been cheating in your tanning practice is the orange-tinted palms which, unless you want to wear gloves in summer, are impossible to hide. To avoid that beacon glow and grubby fingernails, get into the habit of applying tan wearing gloves. Yes, it seems foreign at first, but after a couple of applications it’ll become second nature. Remove the gloves and use cotton wool pads to apply a small amount of tan to the back of each hand.

TanningBack brush:  Unless you have a dedicated other half to ensure your back is bronzed, tanning your back solo seems like an impossible mission. Fake tan experts have literally thought of everything and introduced a ‘back spatula’ to reach those nooks and crannies we would never get to otherwise.

Vaseline on eyebrows and hair line:  A great tan tip, but one to work behind closed doors, is dotting a small amount of Vaseline along your brows and next to your hair line. Tanning the face should be treated with caution and dabbing the jelly means that any slip of the hand when applying will prevent dodgy tide marks appearing in these areas.

 

Buff it out:   When tanning professionals want to ensure a tan is perfectly applied and avoid any sign of patchiness, they use a buffing mitt and gently dab away at any buildup of tan, to spread it evenly and avoid varying shades.

Wear loose, dark clothing after application:  The number one rule of dressing after tanning is to wear dark, loose clothing to avoid marking any wardrobe favorites. Be sure to keep legs bare to optimize your tan potential.

Self-tan Remover:  If it all goes horribly wrong and you are left with distinctly orange palms, don’t panic, there is a solution. Have handy a self-tan remover.  Simply rub in and use wipes to remove those tell-tale signs.

Reapply:  Stay glowing longer by maintaining a strict routine of gentle exfoliation and moisturizing.  If you start to pale then reapply tanning product as touch up.

Melasma and Zinc Oxide

Published on by

Dealing with Melasma can be challenging and frustrating.  The bad news is that there’s no cure in the horizon for this common and often chronic disorder, which recent research suggests may have both an epidermal and dermal component as well as a genetic component that is not just based on race or skin type. Estrogen and progesterone seem to play a role in Melasma.  Prescription obagitopical medications with hydroquinone, Tretinoin and a range of acids, and possibly corticosteroids, have long been the main stream way of Melasma treatment. Today, sufferers are receiving a boost from chemical peels and microdermabrasion and, of late, targeted laser therapy using both new and standard devices. This combination appears promising as a new avenue for Melasma treatment.

SK077In addition to those treatments, studies recently have shown that Zinc Oxide has been very successful in the prevention and treatment of Melasma.  Many report great results according to the American Academy of Dermatology.  Zinc Oxide is a common ingredient is sunscreen.  The key is to have the highest percentage of Zinc Oxide in the sunscreen in order to protect, prevent, and heal Melasma.  Will it get rid of all the Melasma?  No.  Remember there is no cure at this time.  However, it has proven to be of great help.

We recommend for those that suffer from Melasma to use physical sunscreens vs chemical sunscreens.  Since chemical sunscreens absorb and disperse the harmful UV rays, this may trigger Melasma vs calming it down.  Physical sunscreens that contain Zinc Oxide and Titanium Dioxide are best suited for those with Melasma since they repel the harmful UV rays. Look for options like the SkinCeuticals Physical Fusion SPF 50 or the Obagi Sunshield Matte Broad Spectrum SPF 50.
