Traveling, especially on an airplane, will certainly take a toll on your skin. With just a few simple steps, you can arrive at your final destination with a complexion that looks fabulous and refreshed.
Have you ever boarded an airplane looking fabulous and landed looking like you’ve aged 10 years? Well, you’re not alone. Airplane cabins have extremely low humidity that can cause our skin to become dehydrated quickly. The re-circulated dry air in the cabin is on a search for moisture and that search usually ends with our skin being sucked dry. Not only will dry skin become drier but oily skin can become even oilier. Seems crazy, but it’s true. When skin loses its water, it tends to produce more oil to compensate for the loss. So what can we do to look after our skin? Read on to learn a few simple skin care tips for air travel. Keep Reading
Whether it’s the weather, genetics, or hormones, we all get a little extra shine on our faces at times. Here are six essential tips to keep oily skin under control.
Oily skin occurs when sebaceous glands produce a high level of sebum (oil) on the skin. Often, people with oily skin have large pores, and are more prone to acne as well as shine. Anyone who’s ever experienced greasy or oily skin knows that it can be frustrating to deal with at times. But if you have oily skin, don’t fret too much, because there is one major positive to having naturally oily skin – it’s less prone to looking wrinkled than dry skin. The oil keeps skin moist, which keeps the appearance of wrinkles at bay – always a good thing!
As far as the cause of oily skin, there are many reasons our skin can get a little shiny from time to time. If you live in a tropical climate, there is natural humidity in the air, making it easy for your oil production to go into overdrive. And, if you enjoy a dry climate, you may still experience oily skin because you’re genetically predisposed. Oily skin could also be due to hormonal changes (which are most often seen in a person’s teens/early 20s). You could also have combination skin – meaning that some areas of your face are oily, and some are dry.
Regardless of the cause of your oily skin, there are ways to mitigate the shine and make your skin appear more matte. Keep Reading
The cold weather months can bring on a lot of changes to our skin. And, sometimes good skin can be much harder to achieve in the winter. But, the good news is, it is definitely possible to look and feel flawless no matter what the weather is. If you’re worried about losing that summer glow now that the colder weather is here, don’t be – there are plenty of basic winter skin care tips that will keep your skin glowing all year long!
As many parts of the world are starting to feel the chill with the blustery cold weather and icy winds, many of us are also starting to see changes in our skin. A winter skin care routine is a necessity, especially for those of us who live in cold, dry climates. In winter, there is less moisture in the air, and indoor heating systems, fireplaces and forced heaters in our cars can be dehydrating to the skin. It’s important to address this dryness in your winter skin care plan to keep your skin looking luminous. Keep Reading
With all of the beauty tips and tricks out there I have to say my absolute favorite is Beauty Sleep! We all know how important good nutrition and a healthy active lifestyle are for both our overall health and our appearance. And we all understand the importance of choosing the right skin care products to target our unique and specific needs. But do you know how crucial a good night’s sleep is?
They call it “Beauty Sleep” for a reason and that gives us a guilt free excuse to sleep in and catch as many Zzzzz’s as possible. But sometimes it just isn’t that easy.
Getting a good night’s sleep, no matter how tired we are, can be difficult. We have so many things to do, and so much on our minds, that sometimes it’s hard to shut it all down and get some quality sleep. The fact is that without sleep we tend to look tired, run down and I hate to say it… OLDER then we are! Keep Reading
A healthy diet equals healthy skin.
There is nothing as important to healthy skin and hair as a healthy diet loaded with vitamins and nutrients. Fruits and vegetables can help boost the skin’s natural defenses against sun damage and wrinkles. Foods rich in antioxidants that contain Vitamins A (beta-carotene), C and E help protect against free radicals from environmental stress. Start each day with an Herbalife® Formula 1 Nutritional Shake Mix to ensure you are getting the best nutrition possible for healthy skin and hair. Keep Reading
Everyone knows that a bad hair day can ruin an otherwise great day. Here are five tips to help prevent your hair from getting unruly.
Lather, rinse, rinse and rinse again.
Some days are so hectic that our hair doesn’t have a chance. We don’t have time to scrub the scalp to remove excess oils and buildup, and we don’t completely rinse shampoo and conditioner from our hair, which makes it unmanageable. Rinse thoroughly to ensure that all traces of shampoo and conditioner have been cleaned from the hair. In order to help seal the hair’s cuticle and to give you more shine, rinse your hair with cool to lukewarm water. Keep Reading
Exfoliating isn’t the most glamorous of skin health topics. It is the process of shedding the outermost layer of dead skin cells while new cells are created underneath.
Believe it or not, the human body sheds millions of skin cell particles every day. Fortunately for us, we don’t shed all of our skin at once like a snake! (I know you feel the same way I do: The thought of life-sized “skin people” all over the place is way too creepy to bear.) But tiny cell particles do slough off throughout the day without our even noticing. Keep Reading
Cleansing is the very first step in your daily skincare regimen, and it should be done every morning and every evening before bedtime. It’s as simple as washing your face.
Besides obvious things that accumulate on your skin each day, such as dirt, oil and makeup, invisible impurities must also be cleansed from the skin to avoid future damage. Common invisible impurities include cigarette smoke, car exhaust, room deodorizers and aerosol sprays, smog and pollution. Keep Reading
