Benefits of Facial Oil

Benefits of Facial Oil

I was talking to a friend yesterday, we were talking about skin care and I was telling her my love for face oils. She was telling me that she really wanted to try one but was a little intimidated by the word oil. Totally understandable I hear that a lot. People with oily skin tend to cringe at the words face oil. People with skin that is already nourished enough don't think they need to add anymore hydration but face oil is not formulated for only people with dry skin. Face oil is formulated for all skin types. It does add hydration to your skin of course, but also it can boost your skins natural glow and protect against damaging free radicals. It's time to reconsider your opinion on face oils.

Now one thing to keep in mind is that there are many different kinds of face oils. To pick the one that is best for you, I recommend researching. Also, make sure you are using a FACE oil and not just any type of oil. I have used the Gloss Face Oil by Sainte Muse religiously for a long time now and I recommend it to everyone. I've said it before and I'll say it again, I have combination skin to the max. It works well for both sides. Everybody that I have made try it, loves it and uses it religiously also. It is formulated for all skin types.

Lets get into some benefits.

Facial oil helps makeup go on more smoothly. The silky smooth feeling of facial oil makes it a great skin care product to apply before your liquid foundation, concealer or creme contour. If your skin is dry, flaky or has any blemishes it can be hard to apply makeup and get that flawless finish. Facial oil helps your makeup brushes or sponges glide across the skin to get that gorgeous finish and is less likely to streak.

Facial Oil seals in moisture and can add nourishment. Everybody can benefit from facial oil. People with dry skin will benefit most from the nourishment. If you are experiencing dry skin from the weather, or you always have dry skin, facial oils can help boost your moisturizer's hydrating efforts. When you apply a facial oil after a moisturizer it seals in all of the hydrating ingredients, making your skin more likely to hold onto the added hydration. Apply a few drops in the morning and at night after a moisturizer if you have dry skin. If you have oily skin, consider only applying at night.

Facial Oil can protect from harmful pollutants. When you apply facial oil as the last step of your skin care routine in the morning, facial oil will act as a barrier on the outer layer of your skin as well as keep moisture in.

Facial Oil promotes a healthy glow. Your skin may appear dull and dry as you age, which is common because, your skin will produce less natural oil as you start to age. Your skin may also look dull if you are dehydrated or if you didn't get enough sleep. Dullness may also occur if you aren't exfoliating enough. No matter what causes the dullness of your skin, facial oil can help restore moisture and encourage glowing skin.

Don't let the idea of applying oil to your skin keep you from trying a facial oil and getting all of these amazing benefits. It is formulated for the face and all skin types so it can only be beneficial.

5 Tips for Beautiful Summer Skin

Summer is officially here and in honor of that, I am going to be sharing five tips to get that beautiful summer skin without too much effort. I know in the summer months I tend to shy away from wearing makeup as much. It’s hot and I hate having to worry about if I am sweating off my makeup or not, and besides who want’s to wear a face full of makeup to the beach? Not me.

5 WAYS TO GET BEACH WAVES!

Beach waves are a summer essential. They look incredible on short hair or long, thin or thick, straight or curly. Also, it really doesn't take much effort and there’s so many ways to achieve beach waves. Count me in.

 Below are 5 different ways to get the best looking beach waves!

 

 

1.) Braid before you sleep: This is the lazy girl’s ways to get beach waves, so me. After you shower, towel dry your hair. Separate your hair into 2-6 sections, so that you end up with 2-6 braids depending on how big you want your waves to be. Braid the sections. Go to sleep looking like some kind of alien and wake up with beautiful beach waves. Run your fingers through it and spritz with a sea salt spray for some more texture.

 

2.) Wand it: Another way I curl my hair is with a curling wand. It gives you that beach wave look without too much time or effort. The size of barrel just depends on how big you want
your waves to be. Before you begin curling, spritz your hair with a heat protector, your hair will thank you. Then take one
inch pieces of hair. wrap around barrel (leave the bottom 2 inches out) and keep it there until your hair is warm to touch. Reminder, be incredibly careful not to burn yourself. Once you’re done curling, let your hair cool, then run your fingers through your waves for a more natural look, then spritz with hairspray.

 

3.) Scrunch it: If your hair is naturally wavy, you can get beach waves in like 2 minutes. Literally just spritz some sea
salt spray, to towel-dried hair and scrunch it. Let it air dry and you’ll have that perfect beach wave look.

 

4.) Straightener: A flat iron, can have many uses. You can not only use it to obviously straighten your hair, but also curl it! Take one inch sections of straight hair, clamp a few inches

below the root, slowly move the iron down and rotate in a halfway turn. While rotating seamlessly move the iron down your hair.

 

5.) Curling Iron: Before doing anything involving a hot tool, make sure to spray hair with hair protectant. Follow that up by brushing through to get rid of any tangles. Using a wide-barrel iron, take on inch sections of your hair, open the clamp, twist & curl, and move it down your hair, leaving out the bottom two inches. For beachy, messier waves, you should alternate between curling your hair towards and away from your face.

 

 

With five different waves to get that perfect beach wave look, I’d say you’re just about ready to hit the beach. Just don’t forget your Dark Tanning Oil by Sainte Muse so you can get a perfect tan to match your perfect hair. (;

7 Things you Should be Doing to Take Care of your Face!

7 Things you Should be Doing to Take Care of your Face!

If you’re looking for tips and tricks to make your skin healthier and appear better you are in the right spot. These are 7 things you should be doing to take care of your lovely skin.

 

 

1. Wash off your makeup.
Believe me when I say, I know how hard it can be to wash off your makeup at night. When you’re watching Netflix and you’re suddenly so tired you can hardly keep your eyes open but you still have your makeup on. You’re thinking to yourself, “what’s one night” GIRL, go wash that makeup off. I promise if you don’t, you’ll totally regret it. Makeup left on the skin overnight can clog pores, breed bacteria, and cause breakouts. Please, ladies, wash your makeup off your face at night!

 

2. Consider your diet.

I’m sure you’ve already heard about dairy causing acne, but that’s not the only food that can cause you to break out. Try your best to focus on nutritional meals. Your body will thank you and so will your skin. Stay away from processed carbs. Fruits and vegetables are the way to go!

 

 

3. Wear Sunscreen daily.
No matter the time of year, sunscreen protects against harmful rays that are always present no matter the season. UV rays are very harmful to the skin, they cause premature aging of the skin and can also cause skin cancer. Sunscreen is necessary for healthy skin.
 
 
4. Wash your makeup brushes.
Think about it, how often do you use your makeup brushes? Okay, now when was the last time you cleaned them? Makeup brushes collect, makeup, oil, dust, dead skin cells, and other debris. Every time you use them you are putting that on your face! Your dirty brushes can cause acne, skin irritation and infections.

 

5. Incorporate a vitamin C antioxidant serum into your skincare routine.
As a proactive measure to keep your skin’s elasticity and health, make sure you’re looking at the ingredients in your products. A vitamin C antioxidant serum is one of the most important anti-aging products available. Unlike some harsher anti-aging ingredients, antioxidant serums are generally tolerated by all skin types.

 

6. Face masks.
Face masks are incredibly important. With that being said, certain face masks work for certain skin types and don’t work at all for others. I like to use a face mask once a week, it not only leaves my skin feeling so refreshed but it is also super relaxing for me as well. The mask I have been loving lately, and totally recommend if you have combination skin like me, is the Active Noir Masque by Sainte Muse. I have found myself reaching for this mask each week when I decide it’s face mask time. It exfoliates and refreshes my skin, leaving it smooth and glowing.

 

 

 7. Getting enough sleep.
Make sure you are getting enough sleep. It’s called beauty sleep for a reason!!!! When you’re asleep your body has time to repair and regenerate. Not getting proper or enough sleep can contribute to inflammation which impacts the immediate and long-term appearance of the skin.

 

 

Cheers to healthy skin!!!
