Dry Skin Getting You Down? Try These Sensational Solutions

Dry skin is a common problem for most people these days. There are numerous skin conditions that cause dry skin that can be in localized to one area such as the face, or all over the body. From a self-confidence perspective, dry skin really brings you down.  Sometimes people with dry skin on their face feel super self-conscious and try to wear more makeup to cover it up. Unfortunately, dry skin can make applying makeup harder and makes dry flakes and patches more pronounced. People with dry skin on their arms or legs don’t want to wear certain clothes, which also affects their confidence.

Don’t worry if dry skin is getting you down, there are solutions out there. All the ideas listed below will help get rid of dry skin if you add them consistently to your usual beauty routine.
Stop Using Fragranced Cleansers
Be honest, how many of you wash your face with a cleanser that’s got a fragrance added to it? Most of us do this, purely because we like the way it smells. However, were you aware that the fragrance could be causing your dry skin woes? To create those pleasing scents, manufacturers use various chemicals that can dry out your skin.

As a result, if you want to keep your skin nice and clean, without it drying out, then switch to a fragrance-free cleanser. There are many choices on the market, they’re less irritable, and you’ll notice the benefits within a week.

Apply Shea Butter To The Affected Areas
If you’ve not heard of shea butter, then you’ve been missing out on a glorious beauty ingredient. When it comes to your beauty routine, you must add shea butter to the mix. Apply a shea butter cream or ointment to dry skin, and watch the magic happen. Alternatively, you could literally buy a tub of shea butter and apply it directly.

Why is this butter so great?  Not only does it provide generous amounts of moisture to your skin, it also carries loads of nutrients and vitamins into your body. This means shea butter has potential healing properties so it will alleviate dry skin while also treating any conditions that caused the dry skin.
Use A Moisturizer After Showering
When do you feel like your skin is at its driest? Normally, it’s when you’ve just come out of the shower and let yourself dry off. The moisture gets soaked up by your skin, but then your skin seems to carry on drying, and you get that horrible feeling of dry skin. The same happens when you wash your hands, and your fingertips and palms feel really dry afterward.

To solve this problem, start moisturizing after every shower, or after washing your hands. Products like Doublebase Gel are a good idea because they can be used when you’re still slightly wet, which is often the best time to moisturize. Apply some all over your body, taking extra care to cover the spots that are usually the driest. You’ll find that doing this will avoid that horrible dry feeling, keeping your skin nice and moist.

Stop Dry Shaving
As I’ve mentioned before, many skin conditions cause dry skin. Equally, a lot of people get dry skin because of the decisions they make. For example, if you decide to shave without shaving cream/foam, on skin that’s not wet, you will cause dry skin.

When you have to shave your legs, armpits, arms - or anywhere else - do so after or during a shower. This is because your hairs are nice and soft, and they’ll require less effort to shave away. Therefore, you can apply less force, reducing the damaging effects on your skin. Shaving cream/foam is needed to provide added protection and hydration as you shave. Finish everything off by rinsing your legs with cold water, and applying moisturizer.

Try all of these solutions, and that should be it for your dry skin problems. If these solutions don’t work for you, then you may have a skin condition that requires a little help from your dermatologist. They can prescribe medication and treatment, which you can use alongside my ideas to banish dry skin forever!

Makeup Breakup

Image Source
Makeup makes many women around the world feel more confident and sexier. It’s a delicate balance though because sometimes too much of a good thing can turn into an issue.  Many women have experienced clogged pores and damaged skin cells due to the wear and tear of makeup.  Although it sounds sacrilegious, putting down the foundation brush from time to time can be beneficial in a variety of ways. Here are four which are bold and brave reasons to go out in the nude.

Silicon Pores

We don’t tend to associate this plumping agent with the skin, but lots of high street brands use silicon. What happens next is not healthy over a long period. The chemical starts to break down the cells and leaves the pores open from dusk to dawn. Seriously, they don’t shut and are open to all sorts of dirt and debris. When experts say ‘don't make these simple mistakes,’ they are talking about silicon. Wearing less makeup is a simple solution, as is using organic products. The results may not be the same, but in the long run, your skin will look younger and healthier.

Purse Strings

There are too many new techniques to learn, yet we invest in the products anyway. It doesn’t matter that the product may go untouched; it simply makes us feel better to know it’s on that we have the latest and greatest palette or product on the vanity table. Obviously, splashing out on ‘state-of-the-art’ items is expensive and sets women back hundreds, if not thousands of dollars a year. Once you realize there is no way to use them all, buying and trying every new product that comes to market can be pretty wasteful.  

How Old Are You?

In a weird twist of fate, young girls slap on makeup and older women go for the au naturel vibe. The theory is that youthful skin is stronger and less likely to get damaged as opposed to older skin. As true as the logic may be, all of us could benefit from a couple of days a week with a fresh face or lighter coverage.

You Are What You Eat

What animals eat and drink and it goes into their bloodstream. Makeup is similar in the sense that what goes on your face ends up in your body. As the chemicals absorb into the bloodstream, they can mess around with your bodily systems. Becoming knowledgeable about the ingredients used in your makeup, and taking a break from makeup occasionally will ensure you don’t have to deal with health-related issues.

Funding Your Fashion: Clothes Shopping Tips & Tricks

When it comes to looking and feeling good, a lot of it can come down to what you wear and how you wear it. If you feel uncomfortable with the clothes you’re wearing, then it shows. When you feel good in what you’re wearing, your posture will be better, and your confidence and sass will just ooze out. So having the clothing that you like to wear and feel good in is a must, right? Of course, your confidence needs to come from within. But when you have the clothes to go with it, you can just slay!

Here are some of the ways you could get the dream wardrobe that you’ve always wanted so that you can look good and feel good. Shopping, anyone?

Thrift Stores

A lot has got to be said about looking in thrift stores for clothes, and not just because Macklemore tells us about it. You can find some really good pieces in there, especially if you like to wear clothes that have a bit of a retro or vintage vibe to them. The good news is that the prices are nearly always what you can afford, so why not give them a try? It can be fun looking around them too, as there are some really unique choices.

Store Credit

Some stores will offer a store card that you can use to get greater discounts on their products. Usually, for signing up, you will be able to get a discount on your purchase, as it is an incentive for signing up. The important point to remember is that you should only be spending on it what you can afford, and if there isn’t an incentive for using the store card that day, then use cash or a debit card. There is no need to get into debt for clothes, but if you can get money off and can afford it, then why not?


Bonus Credit Cards

If you have a credit card that offers you an incentive for spending on it, then like above, as long as you can afford to spend on it, then it can be a good way to get the items you need, as well as get some air miles or other incentives. If you’re going to shop using a credit card then it is a good idea to look for one of the 0 apr credit cards so that you won’t be charged any interest. Just make sure it is all paid off before the zero percent interest time is over.

Look For Cheaper Versions

If you have a taste for the finer things in life, then that can be all well and good, though it will take a toll on your bank balance. So think about what you can be doing to spend a little less. The chain stores out there can have such good deals on really good look-alike pieces, that they could be worth getting instead of the designer pieces. It does pay to shop around.

How are you planning to get your spring and summer wardrobe equipped over the next few months?
