Every Winter I get stuck with an irritated, dry chin. No matter how hard I try to prevent it! My guess is that it’s from scarves and coat collars rubbing against it combined with the cold, brisk air and heaters in my car and bedroom making the air super dry. Anyway, it’s the end of January and here I am again with it. And of course foundation doesn’t sit on top of it as well as it does the other areas of my skin. Luckily, I know exactly what to do about it! After I moisturize my face as usual (right now I can’t live without this one ($$)!), I pinch a couple drops of face oil into the palm of my hand, dab a dampened sponge into it and tap it along the flaky area(s) before applying foundation.

STEPS:

  1. After moisturizing as you normally would, squeeze a couple drops of the face oil into the palm of your hand.
  2. Dampen the sponge with water and squeeze out excess. Now tap the sponge into the oil in the palm of your hand.
  3. Dab the sponge against the flaky and dry skin areas.
  4. Continue on any dry areas that need a little extra love.
  5. Now apply foundation all over your face and neck as usual.

GIRLS, GET READY

It’s that time of year again.  Girls everywhere don beautiful gowns, paint their faces and curl their hair.  Then their dates present them with lovely corsages and escort them to fancy cars.  The whole evening feels like a fairytale… with the exception of the girl who forgot to properly prepare!  Don’t forget about what goes in your purse or clutch. Most prom-going-princesses don’t even think about these little things until they’re rushing out the door.
