Tuesday Tip: Dry No More!
Need a quick fix for dry lips or a dry patch of skin on your face during these harsh winter months? Look no further than your pantry for a little ingredient I keep in my makeup kit for emergencies and use on myself from time to time...sugar. Simply spray or add a few drops of water to a spoonful or small amount of sugar so you create a scrub consistency. Then use a warm washcloth to dip in the sugar and buff your lips or dry patch. When you finish removing the dry skin apply lip balm or moisturizer. This is a quick fix, so if you are looking to exfoliate multiple times a week look for a GENTLE scrub. Harsh scrubs can enlarge pores, so steer clear of anything super rough that may feel like sandpaper on your face. Makeup looks so much better on smooth skin, so give your skin a scrub!
