The hot Lagos sun and sweat makes it hard to maintain that picture- perfect- face we wish we can carry the whole day! Here are some tips to maintain a sweat- free, oily-free face, in this Hot Lagos Weather!
- Tone down on face creams and moisturizers. Rather use light facial moisturizer with SPF to protect from sun’s rays.
- NO! No stick and cream foundation because they can be heavy for the hot weather, rather use liquid or any water based foundation and loose powder which is lighter and leaves your skin oil-free.
- When you sweat, don’t rub your face. Gently dab your face with a blotting paper.
- To re-touch your face with powder, use a makeup brush instead of a makeup sponge.
Alright beautiful People! I’m excited as I write this because my skin feels as smooth as a baby’s :)!
On my way home this evening, I walked into a cosmetic shop, to market Zaron products, and the next thing the lady at the shop says to me after exchanging pleasantries is “You need to exfoliate your skin!” And I’m like (in my mind though, with my left eyebrow raised), “Does this woman know at all that I am a giver of beauty advise?” LOL!
She then recommends a particular scrub, which I couldn’t purchase for lack of unplanned funds, so I promised to return another day. I left with the determination to make my skin look better, as prior to that moment, I had believed it was just perfect. As soon as I got home I rushed to the shower remembering that I had a body scrub which I had only used for my face before this revelation. Boy!!! Did my skin feel sooo fresh and smooth or what? Without much exaggeration, my skin has never felt this smooth in a VERY long while! LOL
HOW TO KNOW YOUR SKIN NEEDS TO BE EXFOLIATED.
# Is your skin starting to lose that fresh youthful look?
# Is it beginning to look dull and lacks lustre?
# Does your skin look flaky and are you breaking out more?
# Do you feel like your skin is wrinkling when it’s not supposed to?
If you have answered yes to any of my questions, then yes, exfoliate your skin now!!!
Exfoliation will remove old, dead cells from the skin to reveal the younger, fresher skin underneath.
Everybody’s skin deserves to feel the way mine felt this evening, so get a body scrub today and get that youthful glow again! Now I’m not saying that exfoliation will be an overnight remedy to your skins problems, but I will say that it may DEFINITELY help.
Till my next post…
