Solve Your Winter Skin Problems

Great Day! When the weather turns from sunny and mild to cold and blustery, our skin often turns too -- from supple and hydrated to cracked, flaky and ashy. In the winter we usually need to switch from lighter moisturizers to more intensely hydrating ones, right? Here is how to winterize your skin.

Pamper yourself by moisturizing the skin. Soak in a warm bath for 5 minutes, and then add a few drops of jojoba or olive oil to the water. The oil will help to seal moisture in, which can prevent and protect against dry skin. Also, adding moisture-infused products to our skin will help hydrate it. Apply cream or body lotion to damp skin once you have had a bath or shower. This can help to prevent dry skin.

Use a humidifier in the house to keep humidity in the air. A humidifier is one of the best ways to help winterize your skin.

Exfoliate your skin several times a week to remove dead skin cells. A baby brush or clarisonic brush work well to exfoliate skin.

Always wear sunscreen when you are outdoors. Sunlight even when it is dim can create skin problems.

How to Create A Natural Eye for The Daytime

Great Day! If you are looking for a way to do your makeup for a natural daytime look, here's a few simple tips can get you started.

Select eyebrow pencils and eyeliners that match your hair color for the perfect natural daytime look. Apply color to your eyes and brows sparingly and rub in the color with the tip of your finger or a soft makeup sponge.

Choose blushes and eye shadows in natural tones. Avoid colored eye shadows such as greens, blues and purples as they work better for a night on the town. Instead, choose browns and natural pinks which match your skin. Blush should be applied sparingly, as rosy cheeks create a healthy, natural look only when applied lightly. Always begin with a light amount of blush, again, working it well into the skin and applying more only if necessary.

Finish your daytime look with a natural colored lipstick or even a clear or slightly tinted lip gloss. Make sure the color is not too bright, sticking as close to your natural lip color as possible. For a daytime look, don't use a lip-liner pencil; simply reapply your lip gloss or lipstick as needed.
