We fail to notice how important our skin is until we suffer from a severe break out or allergic reaction. We never really think about how many different chemicals we come into contact with due to all the soaps, lotions and deodorizers we use on a daily basis.
Just recently, the skin around my eyes became very irritant and puffy. I don’t use many make-up products but I faithfully use mascara everyday. I knew that had to be the reason why my eyes were breaking out.
TIP 1: Your mascara should never be more than 6 months old. For safety precautions, be sure to replace your mascara every 3 months.
TIP 2: Use less mascara on lower lashes than on top lashes
TIP 3: If your mascara smells funny or is more than 6 months old, throw it out!
TIP 4: After coating your lashes with mascara, add an extra layer to the outer corners. The extra layer will make your lashes look really long and make your eyes appear to be farther apart.
Mascara is one of the hardest products to keep sanitized AND is one of the only products we constantly use over and over again without cleaning on a daily basis. This is why it is important to replace your mascara often. I had my mascara since August, so I knew it was time.
The same advice goes for what you put on your skin…
For today ONLY, Beautycounter has extended our CyberMonday sale to CyberTuesday! We’re offering a free face oil with ANY oil purchase AND a free soap bar with ANY soap bar purchase.
If your skin gets super oily like mine, than I would definitely recommend the Balancing Face Oil.
Why put oil on your skin if it’s already oily? Well, unlike other oils that sit on your skin, this particular oil is easily absorbed and helps your skin to stay hydrated. Even if you don’t suffer from oily skin, you HAVE to keep your skin moisturized some how especially during the cold winter months!
Other oils offered:
Soap is another everyday product that we can not stay away from. We use it on our face and when bathing. so why not use a bar of soap that you know is free of chemicals and that smells amazing. The Charcoal Cleansing Bar is my absolute favorite because it can be used daily on your face and body and it absorbs impurities. I’ve used black soap a few times before but wasn’t pleased with the results.
Other soaps offered:
