Were already into the new year and I KNOW some of you have made new year resolutions, some of you may have not kept those resolutions and some of you have not even made any. That’s OK!
We’ve already had a crazy start to the new year!
But I think its a perfect time to refresh our makeup and and start fresh with some new skincare. I know you’ve heard it all before but we have to throw out our makeup and skincare at some point. It doesn’t last forever and now with Covid we have to protect our health,skin,eyes and body even more. Bacteria is doing the salsa on and in our products. So, get Stay healthy and get beauty smart and learn a few new ideas I have for you. This week on TV I am sharing with my River City Live TV viewers in sunny Florida Step by Step ways to do this.
Here’s a sneak peek for you.
Step 1. Pull out all your skincare and check each bottle,tube and jar. Ask yourself when was the last time you used them? Yesterday or a year ago. Once opened they lose their potency and quality of the ingredients breaks down. Next how does it smell? Pretty or pretty ugly? Or no scent. Are the tubes closing properly or are de-funked.You decide. The point is if it smells bad or OLD or doesn’t close tightly it should be thrown away.
Step 2. Do the same to your makeup. Put all your beauty on the table. Check if your liquid or cream foundation has an odor OR if it looks different. Are your compact or eye shadow mirrors broken or the glass chipped? Lipsticks smell weird? I realize some of you Beauty Lovers will need to do a round or three of this exercise since you own so much beauty booty. But it is important to do it!
Step 4. When you are ready so shop and time and your budget allows. Create a Beauty Shopping List and start browsing and shopping to add some some new things to start with a few new things. Ask for samples if the brick and mortar beauty store has any or the online site you are shopping at has samples. Look in current magazines you subscribe to for free sample inserts inside. They have turned me into a buyer once I tried them.
Step 5. Now make a list of what you might need and go shop! Brands are not all the same. Choose wisely. Some will take a little play and experimentation to see if the brand you buy agrees with you and your skin. Especially when it comes to skincare. Also some cheap $1.00 store and other type stores where the price points are really low should proceed with caution.Some makeup brands and certain colors like a purple hued eye shadow kit may have allergic reactions on you like itchy red eyes. Be careful if you have sensitive skin.
Step 3. Next go over all your makeup brushes and sponges.They too are breeding ground of bacteria and need cleaning, sanitizing and or replacing eventually.
Step 6: Since the pandemic I am even more cautious when it comes to makeup and skincare I wash my personal sponges and brushes more often. I also have added assorted spatulas on my vanity to apply my face creams,masks and other products with. DON’T double or triple dip into your creams. This contaminates your product after even a bit of time. So, I highly recommend you do too. Also ALWAYS wash your hands before you do your makeup or clean your skin.
*NEVER share Makeup! Even if it is your family. Don’t give your used or old makeup to family or friends. Stay safe and healthy! Throw it out.
