And what you might be missing by being born in America
You know what we are missing by beeing born in a country that allows us to buy at least 5 different types of eye cream(puffines, dark circles, wrinkles, upper eyelid, lower eyelid)? Well, for starters the creative common sense mind to fix dry skin with soy milk and know how to make summer foundation work in the winter. Thank God for the editors of InStyle, Ultimate Beauty Secrets, they came up with a must-have beauty bible, that offers us a number of cold weather tips that will have you looking your best.
1. Supplement Your Skin Routine
If you have dry skin that is flakey, consider changing up your routine and washing your face with dandruff shampoo instead of your regular cleanser once a month; this reduces the yeast levels that cause scaly skin.
2. Brighten Up
Refresh your complexion by dipping a washcloth in soy milk and resting it on your face for 10 minutes once a week. Soy is a skin brightener and contains phytoestrogen, a plant-derived estrogen that is thought to help prevent wrinkles.
3. Stay Hydrated
Keep skin hydrated on cold nights with a make-it-yourself humidifier. Hang a wet towel from the doorknob overnight (wring out the edges to prevent drips); by morning, the towel will be dry but your skin won’t.
4. Adjust Your Color
To make summer foundation work in winter, dab a little foundation on your hand, then squeeze a pea-size blob of SPF 30 on top and mix until the sunscreen blends completely with the foundation, lightening it by a shade or two.
5. Moisturize Dry Lips
Lips extra dry? Combine 1 teaspoon honey with 1 teaspoon sugar to exfoliate them. Blend the two ingredients in your hand, then apply the mixture in a circular motion for 90 seconds before wiping off.
The book is available now for $22.95 in bookstores nationwide and at InStyle.com/ultimate. I guess we can even buy common sense in our good Ol’ USA.
