Best Product To Help You Remove Your Makeup Without Damaging Your Skin

Have you ever thought of a product that would make you forget your makeup wipes, cleanser, toner and your face wash without giving you panda eyes? (I’m talking about what happens to your eyes when you remove your eyeliner and mascara 😛 ) well this one doesn’t!

We all are well aware of the wonders of cleansing our skin in the best possible way. Who doesn’t love clear skin?! But when it comes to products that we use on a daily basis, I prefer those that are light on our pocket. Hey let’s face it, we can’t get high end products that we know we have to use at least twice a day if not less unless you are sitting on a gold mine because they do cost an arm and a leg if used frequently. I’m sorry but I feel this way. People like me who have 3 children think about all aspects before befriending anything and I know most of you can relate to it.

Coming back to the product that I have been using for a long time now and I love it. I don’t post about anything till I’m 100% sure about what I’m saying and this one is definitely worth a standing ovation for it works three ways. It cleanses, removes makeup and all impurities and refreshes and soothes skin. The best thing is that you don’t necessarily have to wash it off as it is super light and doesn’t feel sticky or uncomfortable on your skin. I’m talking about the worthy Miceller Water. Now you could use any brand you prefer but i’m completely glued to Garnier Micellar Water. It has to be one of the best that you can find comparing to high end and drugstore waters. Try it. You’ll know what I mean. I haven’t been using anything else at all as it covers all that I need to do. As they say it’s a lazy girl’s dream come true! 😛

What is Micellar Water?
Micellar water is made of tiny balls of oil molecules called micelles, which are suspended in soft water. The clever little micelles are made of surfactants, which act as magnet to attract dirt, makeup, and sebum, lifting impurities from the skin without stripping away natural oils like harsh chemicals and alcohol can. All you need to do is soak a cotton pad in micellar water and wipe away your makeup (even tough eye-makeup) and any other grime or oil that has built up – no need to rinse because the formula draws out impurities without unbalancing your skin, and doesn’t leave behind oil.

As a result, it’s incredibly hydrating for your skin, so if your skin tends to be oily, you may even find you can skip moisturizing before bed which I do.

You can get a 125ml bottle for AED16 and a 400ml bottle for AED 44.99

Before this I was using cleansers, and makeup wipes to remove makeup. Wipes always left my skin with rashes or irritable skin so this has been a life saver in every way!

Skin Replenisher

Skin is not something to be tempered with and proper skincare products can make a huge difference to your skin for years to come. Speaking of which, let me tell you about an extremely beneficial, amazing Skin Replenisher that I came across about 3 months ago and I have been religiously using it since then. I have to say that I’m a happy, satisfied customer who has seen change in my skin texture and appearance.

Forever Alpha E Factor is truly an amazing product. Its a power pack of antioxidants. Using it before going to bed at night would do wonders for your skin. It nourishes and soothes the skin leaving it smooth and hydrated. I noticed a difference after only 3 days to be honest. I am in love with it!

Cleanse your skin thoroughly before applying it to get rid off any makeup or impurities. Leave it on through the night to work its magic. You will notice smoother skin in the morning. It also works great on dry, chapped lips, much better than most lip balms. Try applying a drop 15 to 20 minutes before lipstick and you will see a smoother application.

For those of you who are in family way and are concerned about stretch marks should definitely give it a try as it reduces the appearances of stretch marks and gives you a younger looking skin. It’s a must have ladies!

If you have dry skin, you can use it as a primer oil. I have used it as a primer oil on many occasions even though I have combination skin and it gave my makeup a smooth finish so I would definitely recommend it to everyone!

It comes in a pretty little bottle and of course we love that about products too, don’t we  😉 Thumbs up to this one!

Winter Skincare

Winter is the time to get wrapped up in gorgeous sweaters, mufflers, jackets, socks, uggs, boots and what not. Warm colors and beautiful textures, it all adds up to give us the wardrobe we all look forward to during autumn. But winter also brings with it skin problems that need attention. Many people suffer from skin dryness which leads to more serious problems. Of course this season also means dry, flaky scalp that itches and leaves our dark colored wardrobe full of white unwanted dandruff. So we are bringing you ways to improve your skincare during this season to give you gorgeous skin that you can happily flaunt.

  • Oiling your scalp is definitely your best bet during winters and of course also otherwise. Coconut Oil is one of the best oils to help with dryness of the scalp and other areas too. It is light on the pocket and has no side effects
  • Say NO to hot showers as much as you love them. Hot showers is the biggest reason our skin becomes dry.
  • Befriend a good scrub that suits your skin type and doesn’t leave it dry. Once in a while scrubbing is actually good for your skin.
  • Lanolin and fragrance free Lipbalm should be with you at all times to avoid chapped lips.
  • Moisturizers are your saviors during winters. Choose the one that suits your skin type and don’t hesitate to use it as much as you want to.
  •  Nothing works better than petroleum jelly on hands and feet. I for one carry Vaseline in my bag during winters.
  • Don’t forget a good sunblock even in winters as the sunrays are harmful even if welcome the warmth with open arms.
  • Stay hydrated even if you don’t feel thirsty in winters. Lots of water means healthy glowing skin.
  • Lastly, Cleansing, Toning and Moisturizing! Remember these 3 key words no matter what the season.

Enjoy the sun! Enjoy hot drinks! Enjoy BBQ’s! and of course always look great!

Enjoy the season! 🙂

Beat the Heat with our Summer skin care tips

 

Summer is here and it is impossible to beat the heat and sun rays that constantly damage our skin and hair. Let’s begin by finding ways to minimize the damage and make the most of this weather.

Your best bet is to make friends with H2O. That’s right! It is extremely important to stay hydrated. Water just about covers all, takes care of your internal and external problems. Keep in mind that if you drink a lot of caffeinated beverages, triple your water intake.

Lip-Care-Tips-For-Smooth-Hydrated-Lips

  • Your lips need attention like your skin. Use a richly textured lip balm with an SPF 15 and reapply when outdoors.

  • Keep your skin hydrated with masques,  you will find many things that work wonders for your skin right in your own kitchen, cucumber for instance works for your eyes and rest of the face both, i would personally skip a cucumber masque and apply the cool cucumber directly for better results.

What-is-cleansing-toning-and-moisturizing

  • Cleansing. Toning. Moisturizing! Toners are a refreshing moisturizer prep, working to even out skin porosity.Yes, your skin needs a moisturizer in summers considering the amount of heat it will be taking in every day. Choose something that feels incredibly light on your skin.

  • It’s not enough to just apply sunscreen.: you must apply enough, and apply frequently. A teaspoon for the face. For the body, about as much as would fill a shot glass.Stay out of the midday sun from mid-morning to late afternoon whenever you can and of course choose an oil free product.
  • A tan may be a popular summer look, but it indicates damage. Bombard your skin with age-fighting ingredients to help undo any damage that may occur, and to further protect it from the aging effects of UV.

  • Take a cold shower, as hot showers further damage your skin and scalp.

summer-fruit

  • Embrace the goodness of summer fruits. Melon is a fruit of choice for beautiful summer skin for treating skin from within. The sweet delicious fruit is rich in antioxidants and delivers a unique hydration to the skin, resulting in a radiant complexion. It is believed that it can actually boost your SPF by several factors.

hand-care-from-oro-gold

  • Don’t forget your hands.The thin skin on your hands wrinkles and pigments easily, so be sure to use sunblock daily. I neglected my hands last year and got a terrible tan with all the driving and sun exposure.

strawberry-skin-care

  • The best tool for an even summer skin tone is probably already in your fridge. Cut a large strawberry in half, take a fork and poke at the flesh to awaken the juices, then swipe it across your face in small circles.Leave it on for about two minutes, then rinse off. This will brighten sun and age spots over time.

  • Invest in a pair of good sunglasses and a large hat if you like to wear one otherwise a small umbrella should do the trick.

  • Want to freshen your feet after a day in hot shoes? Soak them for 30 minutes in warm water that’s been infused with a pot of strong black tea.
