Dear Midtown Girl,
This winter has been awful for my skin & nails. After putting on bb cream & powder, my face still flakes. I want that glowy look (not shiny) so I can feel good when I’m out on a date. I get manicures often but my cuticles are a mess (I work in the medical field, so I wash my hands multiple times a day). What products can I use that will help me look fresh for spring?
I hear you doll. My skin has been in desert mode the last few months but there are a few products I use to get my hair, nails & skin date night ready for spring. Here are the products I have been using as part of my spring evening beauty routine…
- HAIR: Kerastase Masque Elixir Ultime. An oil treatment, I actually use this before I shampoo as a nourishing mask. I leave it on for 5 mins, rinse & follow with shampoo & conditioner. I use this before I shampoo, so my hair does not feel “heavy” after a treatment mask.
- FACE:Lierac Gentle Exfoliator Facial Scrub. Exfoliating skin should be done at least once a week, otherwise your moisturizer will just sit on top of your skin and not penetrate it. For dry & flaky skin, use a gentle exfoliator like this one. Then, follow with an extra-hydrating moisturizing routine.
- HANDS, CUTICLES & FEET: Aquaphor Healing Ointment. Made for severely dry skin, I apply this on my cuticles & feet (espesh my heels) before I go to bed. If your skin is extremely dry/cracked, apply to your hands and feet and wear moisturizing gloves & socks over night.
This should help your goal for glowy skin! And have fun on those spring dates 😉
