Establish an Effective Skin Care routine

Healthy habits and a comprehensive skin care routine will help you see the skin you’ve always wanted.

So I came across this on Pinterest  and there are a few things I think I’m going to have to change for my version when I write it up. (Which I may do in my 2018 BUJO. Some I will use others I don’t really need to follow liek the make-up brushes, I don’t use make up often let alone aside from some chapstick or gloss I don’t use it in the summer (rarely, I will put a smudge of eyeshadow)

Exfoliate I would say is best every other day and if you have sensitive skin 2x a week. Although if you are a tanning buff like me (i do use 100SPF but I tan fast as well!) I would exfoliate everyday (or night before) especially your legs BEFORE you shave with a pumice stone or preferably a Loofa  (and no its not the shower Poofs…  They make them for your face too!)

go in the sun and use some baby oil while you still have water dripping on you. You nor a boyfriend or Husband will be able to keep yourself from ‘petting’ your silky legs. And it won’t burn you that way you still get the tanning effect from the baby oil but you will have your sun block over it so you won’t get burned.

weekly Exercise? Thought that was supposed to mostly be a daily thing!!?!?! Though I really hear every other day

I’ve read once a month is fine for cleaning your make up brushes, but then I guess that depends on all the different colors etc you use.

‘grooming eyebrows’ should be bi weekly not monthly especially if this ‘grooming’ means waxing or tweezing. Don’t forget if you get your eyebrows professionally waxed, that you can go a month without having to go back if you maintain it. After a week or even a few days check to see if any hairs have emerged and tweeze those buggers out! This way you stay polished looking and don’t have to pay whatever it is every other week. (or even cheaper, DIY! My Wax cost me no more than $10 and it takes a lot less time than even if you have an appointment you sometimes have to wait… then go through it… it takes me no longer than 5 minutes to do my own.

 

You should condition your hair weekly and month should be a deep condition or hot oil treatment (especially if you have split ends) If you use product in your hair, blow dry it even in summer, or or is just naturally dry and strawlike… you will want to use conditioner every other wash, and once a week use a deep moisturizing conditioner. (and may I suggest a leave-in conditioner.)  also if you have naturally dry hair.. instead of every day (which is what is drying it out… try every other to day or more… say you last washed your hair on Sunday.. wash it on Tuesday night or wait til Wednesday. This way the natural oils can seep into the hair to smooth the follicle as well as you won’t get split ends much. And if During the summer use a little conditioner and sunblock mixed to smooth on the ends of your hair and your scalp. (this way your head won’t get burned nor your hair fried!

Michel Mercier Hair Brush

I saw this brush on tv, and being as my hair is the longest it’s been since I was a child (when I sit down, if I’m not careful I sit on it and my head snaps back!)

Michel Mercier ultimate-detangling-brush-productI thought maybe if I used the brush it would work better than the ones I already have. Mind you I recently did receive a brush around the holidays from Influenster to review. That was a finishing brush after you’ve already detangled etc. These are for right away, but never brush your hair right away when it’s wet. The shaft is weak and more breakage happens.

The instructions are reverse what we were taught as children though I see the logic!

Use starting from the tip (bottom) of the hair and work 13way to the scalp. This is sort of hard to wrap your hair and especially your hand around as I caught myself brushing from scalp to tip. But it does get the tangles out and doing as instructed it doesn’t hurt (however for those big tangles… hold on above the knot) So with this, there is no need for detangling spray! I no longer brush with any brush from scalp to bottom.

I am trying to figure out the difference between the 3 brushes, when I stood before the display the bristles all looked the same, as well the same amount of them. I didn’t see any difference in the thickness or length for the bristles. Though from this picture it could just be the color, but the blue looks like they may be closer together but I’m not sure.

My  one (?) complaint is possibly only due to the winter weather and it being plastic, MAJOR static. You might want to have a dryer sheet, water and/or some sort of hair spray at hand. (It might be a good idea when not using the brush to keep a dryer sheet on it, poke the bristles if possible through the sheet) The static may also depend on your hair (is it dry or oily etc) as well as the atmosphere (air) in the home.

Another one or 2 improvements that could be made…. I would like a longer (maybe even wood)  handle and maybe another 2 inches long with grips.

 

Also be warned if your cat likes to be brushed, she may show up when you are brushing your hair! Mine certainly does so I end up having to brush mine, a few times then her.

Suave dry shampoo spray

I was recently able to acquire a bottle of Suave dry shampoo with Keratin infusion. In this video you can see the 3 different manufacturer’s items

I made sure I really put this stuff to the test. I didn’t just wait a couple of days when I received it, I let my super long thick hair (that is past my butt, maybe closer to my knees now) go about 5 days maybe 7

(hey I wasn’t going anywhere or be around anyone so I didn’t really care! and this would be a real test not just later in the day or 2 days later)

I don’t really style my hair other than in a ‘pony tail’ or a bun, I just do not have the patience to tangle with the tangles that no matter how long or what way I brush my hair, there always seems to be knots in it. but there’s something to it that gives you some volume back in your hair!

Anyway so after spraying as best I could following directions provided, I had gone out to see if I would get any reactions.  I could smell it all day. My hair smelled like I actually washed it! No greasy hair smell, nor did it feel so either. Also I was surprised that it didn’t look dirty either, though it still looked dull.
