Moisturized!

A really important tip that many people are not aware of is when to moisturize your skin-face and body. As soon as you step out of the shower while your skin is still moist you should be applying your products. I do not dry completely off so there is a little water on my skin, then I apply my lotions/products on both my face and body.

The reason we do this is because the products we apply will be more readily absorbed into the skin and simply put, work more effectively.

If the skin does dry a bit you can spritz a spray toner of your choice and then apply the rest of your daily products. *check out my section dedicated to toners for ideas.* This is even more important in the winter months because all skin tends to be drier. A properly moisturized skin looks more beautiful, less fine lines are noticed and make-up is smoother. Now who doesn’t want that?

 

Is it Güd?

This week I was asked to blog about a body wash that meets the following requirements:

Cruelty-Free

Natural

Makes skin soft

Can purchase at Target

I remembered seeing a new line from the creators of Burts Bees called Güd last time I was at Target so I gave it a try. I tried the Vanilla Flame and loved it! It does not contain parabens, phthalates or petrochemicals. It does contain terrific naturally occuring ingredints such as raspberry leaf extract, black walnut and rose.

It is $7.00 for a 10 oz bottle and is really concentrated so less product is needed. You can learn more about this product and the product line here. I am going to be testing more of the line for future posts, Target here I come!
