Rose water spray, face masks, toners, cleansers-- any of these products sound familiar? Anyone with any form of social media has to have heard of at least one of these products and that's because the skin care game is thriving better than it ever has. Need to catch up or simply want to get started? Just grab your spin brush and keep reading!
It's said that the idea of wanting to keep your skin healthy on the inside and glowing on the outside started way back...well, for just about as long as mankind itself has begun! This goes along with the evolution of makeup and wanting to impress the opposite sex or show that you're of higher status. The purpose may have changed but the goals are still the same.
Stores like Ulta and Lush are gaining unbelievable status and have been over the last few years just because of the special products they sell. Ulta, for its simple but sensational cleansers and moisturizers and Lush for their colorful bath bombs. Of course, Instagram celebrities are endorsing these businesses and I honestly can't blame them!
Although you may be eager (like me) to try new moisturizers and cleansers, it's important to remember that what works for some else may not work for you. It'll be very beneficial to find things that treat your skin with all of the nutrients and tenderness that it needs. Don't rush it! Just in case you’re not sure where to start, here are some tips:
- Try to find exactly what type of skin you have. There are different products for oily skin, dry skin and even a combination of both.
- Your eating and drinking habits have an effect on your skin. Try changing it up! Sometimes the things you put in your body can be harmful to your skin as the ingredients aren’t authentic or healthy.
- Always clean your makeup tools! Using the same old brushes can be damaging to your skin as dirt and filth just continue to pile up.
- Constantly change your pillowcases and wash cloth. Those can also carry tons of dirt that you won’t even recognize. Sweat and makeup that hasn’t been removed properly can linger.
Almost every day I see someone post something on social media about a new thing they're using on their skin and I just can't wait to see the results. I know I can't be the only one waiting for an update or for other users to tell about their experience with it. For example, I've been seeing quite a few people start to use Noxzema ($5) which is a deep cleansing cream. After seeing some of my favorite social media stars use it, I just couldn't resist.
Other products I can't resist? Just check these out and I promise you won't be disappointed!
