Winter is in full swing over here on the East Coast! Last weekend, we had almost 30 inches of snow on the ground! As the temps drop, I always try to pay extra attention to my skin to keep it looking its best. So today I’ll be sharing some Winter skincare tips that help keep my skin looking fresh & healthy, even during the cold, dry Winter months. I’m also sharing a tutorial for making your own lip balm (using only four ingredients) to keep those lips moisturized! And since Spring is right around the corner, I’ll also be talking about cleaning… not the house, but the face! The new Bioré Baking Soda Cleansing Scrub is gentle, effective and so much fun to use- it fizzes when activated by water! And it leaves my skin looking radiant & smooth!
First, let me show you a sneak peek at the DIY Lemon-Scented Tinted Lip Balm!
DIY Lemon-Scented Tinted Lip Balm
Want to make some of this lemon-scented lip balm for yourself? Here’s the easy recipe for whipping together these adorable little lip balms for yourself!
- 3 tsp. beeswax, melted
- 4 tsp. coconut oil, melted
- 5 drops lemon essential oil
- 3 drop red food coloring
- 1. Combine the melted beeswax and coconut oil in a small mixing bowl. Stir together ensure uniformity.
- 2. Add the essential oil & food coloring. Whisk together to make sure the color is distributed throughout the mixture evenly.
- 3. Pour into lip balm containers. Let sit for several hours to harden.
When you first add the red food coloring to the oil mixture, it will look like this. The food coloring will not automatically mix with the oil mixture.
Simply whisk the mixture vigorously for a minute and you will have a uniform dark pink color throughout.
Pour them into a little lip balm container. You can get these containers from the craft store or online. Alternatively, you can always re-use an old (or empty) lip balm container that you may have lying around the house.
After the mixture hardens, the color changes from a translucent dark pink to an opaque light pink! Isn’t it pretty?! I also added small adhesive jewels to the tops of the lip balm containers, because… well, do we really even need a reason for more bling?!
Everyday life is usually so busy, but when I do get some time for myself, I love to pamper myself! Taking care of myself always starts with my face and I love what a great exfoliator can do to my skin. I recently tried the revolutionary Bioré Baking Soda Cleansing Scrub & the Bioré Baking Soda Pore Cleanser. I’m totally loving how they deep clean & exfoliate my skin! They both contain baking soda, which is a natural cleansing ingredient & exfoliator. What really makes them effective is that they penetrate the pores to dissolve dirt & oil! My skin always looks clean, soft & smooth afterward. And I never have to over-scrub to get all the benefits of effective exfoliation. Perfectly pH-balanced, these products are now a regular part of my evening skincare routine.
The Bioré Baking Soda Cleansing Scrub is a really cool product (I’ve already recommended it to all my friends!) You can actually feel the baking soda fizz in your hand when the concentrated powder scrub is activated by water! The first to mass technology, this Baking Soda Cleansing Scrub effectively exfoliates dry flaky skin without over-scrubbing! And it’s so simple to use! Simply press the button on the bottle and pour some powder into your hand.
Add water and watch the fizz develop! How cool is this?! Let me just tell you that washing my face is now totally fun!
I love that you can customize the scrub to adjust the level of exfoliation needed. Want more exfoliation? Use less water. Want less exfoliation? Use more water. It’s a really fabulous product that leaves my pores clean & smooth! I have combination skin, and these products are great for combination skin! Do you have oily skin? Then you have to try Bioré Charcoal products, which are specifically designed for oily skin. The Bioré Baking Soda Pore Cleanser features a dual-action baking soda formula. It dissolves deep-down dirt & oil and also gently exfoliates the skin. With this product, you can enjoy purified pores in only 2 days!
Check out how radiant my skin looks after using these products for a week! My skin is bright, clean & healthy-looking! Oh, and I’m also wearing my DIY lip balm, which is moisturizing and beautifully fragrant.
Whenever I’m taking some time to pamper myself, I always love to create a spa-like ambience. I light some candles and play some soft music to help me relax!
About once per week, I try to take care of my cuticles & nails. After putting an emollient lotion on my hands, I like to slip on these cotton gloves to keep the skin on my hands super moisturized and soft!
Here are some other simple ways I try to take care of my skin!
- Wear sunscreen every day, even if it’s cloudy outside!
- Drink plenty of water throughout the day.
- Use a humidifier to combat the cold, dry air of Winter.
