Tips for Dry Skin

Hello my loves! As December rolls upon us i thought i would delight you guys with some tips and tricks for dry skin. As i have mentioned before in previous blogs, i have suffered from dry hair, oily hair and dry and oily skin throughout my life. So i understand how hard the struggle is.

Here are some things that i did to help my dry skin feel less bothersome.

I found that after taking showers often times made my skin feel worse afterwards. You would think that all you have to do is put on some lotion. FALSE! There are times when not even lotion would help.

Don’t take long showers:

I know how relaxing a good long 30min shower can feel after a long day, but having your skin in the water for that long really isnt good for your skin. Try and limit your showers to 5-10 min when you do take them.

Don’t use hot water:

As i said before, theres nothing better than jumping into a nice hot shower, but once again it wont be helping your dry skin AT ALL. Try using warm water instead of scorching hot water.

Go gentle and fragrance free:

Its no myth that soaps and washes with fragrance in them will dry out any skin type. I always used soaps that had no fragrance in them such as soaps with shea butter in them really do help.

Dry your skin by dabbing:

When getting out of the shower most people are very rough with their skin when using a towel. This roughness will only make your dry skin worse. Be sure that your extremly gentle when drying your skin, make sure you gentle dab your skin dry.

Apply moisturizer immediatly after shower:

This will trap moisture and help with your dry skin. Also seeing a doctor about your dry skin. They will be able to give you special creams that will work to improve your skin.

Wear gloves:

By wearing gloves, espically during the fall and winter, you reduce the risk of your skin getting all raw. I also wear gloves while doing the dishes, which helps because then my hands are not getting all wet.

Laundry:

When you go shopping for laundry detergent make sure you get gentle detergent and fragrance free ones. I find that my dry and irritated skin gets worse if i use detergents that arent gentle or have a lot of fragrance in them.

Add moisture in the air:

I highly recommend purchasing a humidifier. This aids moisture into your room and all around your house so that your skin doesnt dry out as easily.

Thats it for todays blog!

September Beauty Favorites!

Hello guys! Welcome back to our blog, today I want to share with you my favorites from September! Lets get into it:

Makeup:

Babo Lip Tint SPF 15 Conditioner –

This lip balm has a little bit of pink tint and it has been perfect for everyday. I can quickly apply it before class and look put together, plus it is really moisturizing! It lasts a while on the lips and makes them look so healthy.

Morphe 12 NB palette – 

This has been my go to eyeshadow palette lately! The warm toned looks are beautiful for this end of summer-autumn phase. These shadows blend easily, and they don’t crease on me (even without a primer) for hours!

Tarte Gifted Mascara + NYX Worth The Hype Mascara –

I have really enjoyed layering these two mascaras! The combo gives me beautiful, long and volumized  lashes with definition. I love to put down the NYX one first as a lengthening base, and then go in with the Tarte for volume. I also love to put the Tarte mascara on my lower lashes, it makes them look lovely!

Skincare:

Derma-E Hydrating Night Cream – 

This has been a lifesaver for me the past couple of weeks. My skin had an absolute freak out because of my move to Cali for college. It went oily and then incredibly dry. This cream is super hydrating but it is fairly lightweight and has worked well through both skin types. Highly recommend this if you need a new night cream!

Acure Seriously Glowing Facial Serum –

This serum was much too heavy for my skin back home, but now it works amazingly for me. This is the only thing that has been able to help balance out my dry skin. It is amazingly hydrating, thick and heavy. I absolutely love it because it makes my skin glow by the morning.

Sonage Remedy Relief Balancing Mask – 

I love the way this makes my skin feel after, it really zaps clogged pores and it helped balance out my oily skin. Even now that my skin has turned dry it still makes my face feel nice. It is an incredibly rejuvenating mask!

That’s it for my September favorites! I hope you guys enjoyed, let me know what you’ve been loving down in the comments below, I would love to know!

Tips for Oily Skin

Hello my lovlies! Today i will be doing another beauty blog…DUH! It would be weird if i wasnt, after all our blog name is BEAUTYholics.

After writing me Acne skincare routine blog, i began to realize that when i comes to your skin, people suffer many problems. Some people get really bad acne, others get really bad dry skin, and then others get really bad oily skin. So i thought, since throughout my short life, i have suffered both oily and dry skin, i would do a blog on what i did to get rid/help my oily skin. Hopefully this will help those of you out there suffering oily skin.

  1. Get a face wash that it suited toward oily skin, and wash you face twice a day.

    I started noticing that i was getting oily skin shortly after i started my first period in the 6th grade. I was terrified by how oily my skin looked, and how no matter what i did, i couldn’t seem to make it go away. That was until i started using Cetaphil Oily Skin Cleanser. I highly recommend this, and if you have sensitive skin like i do this is still a good cleanser so dont be afraid! I would wash my face once in the morning, make sure that you PAT your face dry, instead of rubbing it. Then i would wash my face for the second time before bed.

  2. Wash your bed sheets and pillows once a week.

    Along with washing your face twice a day, i also would wash my pillows and bedding once a week. I personally believe that doing this really helped my acne and my oily skin

  3. Start an oil free diet.

    I know its hard to pass up a french fry here and there, but exchanging that french fry for some veggies, and that burger for more lean meat will really improve your oily skin. When i cut back on the more processed food, i could see a noticable change in the oily-ness of my skin within a week. Cutting back on surgary drinks will also help reduce skin oil.

  4. Exfoliate Exfoliate Exfoliate!

    Exfoliating your skin twice a week will reduce oily skin like you wouldnt believe. By exfoliating your skin, youre stripping yourself of dead skin cells, which helps reduce skin oils. Just be careful not to over exfoliate, that will only make the oily-ness wose.

  5. Exercise daily

    By exercising daily you are increasing your blood flow which opens up your clogged pores as well as nourishes your skin.

  6. WATER WATER WATER.

Drink lots and lots of water. Water is such an amazing thing and will help you so so so so much. I cannot stress how important water is. I would reccomned drinking 5-6 glasses of water a day.

Thats it for todays blog. Comment down below how you got rid of your oily skin, or if you plan on doing this to get rid of oily skin!

Skincare and Haircare Haul!

Hello guys! Welcome back to our blog! Recently I’ve been shopping quite a bit, just stocking up on some categories of products before I leave for college, so here is what I picked up:

Skincare:

Derma – e Hydrating Night Cream – I’ve seen this brand all over instagram and so I decided to test out this eye cream. I swatched it in store, and it feels lovely and I can’t wait to use in on my eyes!

Derma – e Hydrating Eye Cream – This night cream has hyaluronic acid in it and I know that my skin absolutely loves that ingredient! It drinks it up and I get great results so I’m excited to try this out.

Sonage Remedy Relief Balancing Mask – This was on clearance so I picked it up! It also promised to remove impurities and shrink pores, so I was very intrigued!

Essano Rosehip Mist Toner – This is also a brand I’d seen on instagram! I love spray toners during hot weather and I also love rose, so I am sure I’m going to love this!

Haircare:

Alba Botanica Hawaiian Marula Miracle Shampoo – This shampoo seemed so gentle so I picked it up because if a shampoo is too harsh, it really makes a difference in how my curls look. Definitely excited to test it out! Continue reading “Skincare and Haircare Haul!”

Charcoal teeth whitener

Hello lovelies! Now if you’re like me, you’ve probably noticed these little teeth whitened popping up on YouTube and Instagram lately. Like my usual self I have always been curious to try new and interesting things.

The charcoal teeth whiteners have been on my list for awhile! So when I went to Marshall’s and found this for $6 I was sold instantly. Now I will note it did not come with a tooth brush like most of this do, but luckily I had some extra.

After my first use, I found that the powder is magic because somehow it gets EVERYWHERE. so I would recommend you do it over a skin or in your shower, the charcoal itself looks really cool as your brushing it, I kinda feel like a pirate with gross looking black teeth. And it does feel very grainy as your brushing your teeth as well as after.

After use I would recommend swishing some water or mouth wash because there do tend to be little black specks left on your teeth right after use.

As for results you can see a slight change after the first use, but for best results I would use for a week.

The container says you could use this as a substitute for toothpaste, Which I mean you totally could, but if you’re like me, who likes minty fresh breath, I would use this charcoal Whitener first, and then right after brush your teeth with your normal toothpaste!

Comment down below if you’ve used any of these and what you think!
