Self-care, Self-Love: with Our New Lip Exfoliators
Getting ready for a night out is second best only to getting unready at the end of the night. There’s something comforting about taking care of yourself after a night full of music, dancing, and fun. It's like you’re washing the day away, and getting prepared to do it all again tomorrow! Self-care is the best care, nourishing your own body with products that make you feel fresh is so important. Self care makes us feel good mentally, physically, and spiritually. So, if you’re reading this with last-night’s mascara on, or if you want some encouragement, I hope our self-care routines give you some spark. You deserve to feel good about yourself, always.
My name is Alyssa, and whenever there's an opportunity to do my makeup, I take it. That also comes with the intense responsibilities of girlhood that require you to wash your face, even when you’d rather sleep in your foundation. The first step in my routine to achieving a clean, fresh face is the Makeup Remover Melting Balm by Neutrogena. The balm to oil formula is perfect as a first step, and removes eye makeup better than anything I’ve tried before! I always follow that up by washing my face with warm water and the CeraVe Acne Control Cleanser, which is a holy grail if you have clogged pores. After washing and drying my face with a microfiber towel (pat, don’t rub!), I spritz my cooling Micro-Pore mist toner by Dermalogica for a little extra rejuvenation and refreshing. Recently, I’ve been loving the BeautyBio ZenBubble Oil- Free Calming Gel Cream as my moisturizer. It's not greasy, feels light on the skin, and is wearable morning or night! Lip care is often overlooked, but just as important in your self care routine! After moisturizing, I apply a mix of sugar and coconut oil to my lips, and exfoliate using the LipLoveLine Exfoliator. This tool is perfect for gently removing dead skin from your lips, and promoting blood flow to the lips. You will notice visible results after using this on dry lips, try it out! After applying my LipLoveLine Comfort Lip Balm, and admiring my soft and smooth lips, I am ready to call it a night. Show yourself love, and take care of your beautiful skin (especially your lips!).
Hi beauties! My name is Ashley and my skin care routine is extremely simple and easy! In any skin routine cleansing is key which is why I use the Cerave Foaming Facial Cleanser. Not only does the foaming sensation feel great on my face, but I like that I can feel the stress of the day wash away when applying it. Also, whenever I’m worried that I didn’t get every ounce of foundation off my face, this product does the trick in terms of getting all the excess makeup off. After cleansing, I then go in with the St. Ives Apricot Scrub which helps with clearing up/preventing acne and evening your skin tone. I incorporate this in my routine every other night! After exfoliating my face, I then switch to the Cerave Resurfacing Retinol Serum. This serum is creamy, lightweight, and has made tremendous improvements in getting rid of most of my dark spots. A little definitely goes a long way with this product! For my moisturizer, I use the Fruit of the Earth Aloe Vera Gel which is one of my favorite products. The cool gel feels amazing on my face and is so soothing. The consistency is a little watery so this is another product where a little goes a long way. Last but certainly not least, is my lip care routine! Since being a part of LipLoveLine, I have taken my lip care routine more seriously and actually took the time to establish a set regimen. First I use the Tree Hut Brown Sugar SugarLips Lip Scrub which tastes AMAZING by the way! Once I apply that to my lips, I then use the LipLoveLine Exfoliator to massage it into my lips. It’s way better than applying with your finger. Once I rinse off the scrub, the last step is applying the LipLoveline Comfort Lip Balm. The balm never fails in terms of making my lips feel smooth and most importantly… MOISTURIZED. That concludes my skin care routine! I hope you all enjoyed reading this. Don’t forget self love is the BEST love!
