*Don’t forget to follow these steps to combat dry/chapped lips:
1. Cleanse your face every day. We all get busy and it’s easy to skip washing your face to get in an extra wink of sleep. Washing in the morning takes off all of the gunk that your face pumped out during its repair cycle while you slept. It will help your makeup go on smoother too. Wash before you go to bed so all the make-up and toxins from the day don’t congest your skin and cause unsightly blemishes. Click here to find a cleanser for you!
2. Use a moisturizer. Every skin type needs hydration, even oily. Hydration keeps skin from drying out and looking blah. We can all use a little help with the heaters blowing full blast this time of year. Soft, supple skin is well-moisturized skin. Click here to find a moisturizer!
3. Drink Water. You’ve heard it a million times but it’s still true. Water rejuvenates and hydrates all the tissues in your body. Think of a plant that hasn’t been watered. Shriveled. Not healthy. It’s the same thing that happens to our bodies and skin when we don’t get enough H20. Bottoms Up!
4. Exfoliate. Here’s another one that’s easy to forget when you are on the go. Exfoliation sluffs off those dead skin cells that lay on top of your skin causing dullness. Get the younger, fresher skin on top! Click here to find an exfoliant!
5. Wear an SPF. Unfortunately we are not immune to harmful UVA (ultra-violet aging) or UVB (ultra-violet burning) rays even when the sun isn’t shining. We can still be prone to sun damage while driving in the car or even in our offices under UV lights. Sunscreen is not just for the fair-skinned. Everyone benefits from protecting their skin year-round. Click here to find a sunscreen for you!
I’ve had three cups of black coffee this morning. I’m wide awake but my newly-bleached teeth are not so pearly white anymore. Stained, lackluster teeth are not in this season. Coffee breath isn’t very sexy, either. But I have no toothbrush, and I haven’t got mouthwash. I won’t smack my gum in the morning meeting with the boss. I will, however, call on the little tooth fairy that I hide in my drawer. Amidst the candies, business cards, paper clips, hides a box of GoSMILE Touch Up’s. These portable, single-dose ampoules work like a mid-day brush, specifically targeting the bacteria that cause bad breath and refreshing the entire mouth, these ampoules to help polish teeth after and between whitenings so teeth stay lustrous and pretty! And these handy dandy touch ups come in a wide array of flavors. Fresh Mint is a classic staple. Watermelon Mint is yummy and sweet, and Green Apple is tangy and sour. White teeth for everyone! Hoorah!
