Kelly's Korner Beauty Tips

Today is Show Us Your Life at Kelly's Korner, so I am linking up to her again today.  Today's topic is Beauty Tips.  I really don't have any exciting, secret beauty tips, but I do have a few things that I really love.

1.  Skin care/acne prevention:  I have been very lucky that I have never really had a problem with acne.  Nothing that requires a dermatologist.  My dermatology office does recommend a wonderful over the counter product.  The Neutrogena Oil Free Face Wash.  The key is to get the ones that have 2% Salicylic Acid.  I like the scrubs but it also comes in a foaming face wash.  As long as I use it twice it a day, I have no break outs.  If I run out and use something else, the breakouts start, so I know that it works.

2. Make-Up:  I was a big fan of Bare Essentials for years.  It really works great and I love that you feel like you have on nothing.  With that said, I am getting older and my skin is changing.  I feel better with moisture on my skin.  Right now I am loving Cover Girl Simply Ageless.  It is foundation with Oil of Olay mixed in.  It goes on easy and blends well.

3.  Lips:  I always have chapped lips.  I have all my life and have to have something on them 24/7.  I believe that it is because I take so many anti-histamines for my allergies.  They dry up everything.  My favorite lip balm is the Jack Black Lip Balm.  It comes in a few "flavors". 

For color I prefer lip gloss.  Lip sticks feel dry to me no matter what I get.  I love the Loreal Lip Gloss and I have used it for years.  I use the color Rich Plum at the moment but I got back in forth between it and Rich Rose.

4.  Nails: I have had acrylic nails on and off (more on than off) for the last 15 years.  Whether my nails are fake or mine, I love the Burt's Bees Lemon Cuticle Cream.  It smells nice too.

  5.  Hair:  At the moment my hair is really long.  Too long in fact, but I have no idea what I want to do with it once it is cut.  I have oily hair but the ends get dry when it gets long.  I love the Regis Olive Oil line.  The hair mask is wonderful, especially in the summer if you are a sun person.

  1. I am wearing that CG foundation today- I am 37 now, and have some small lines and wrinkles, and I think the Olay part of the product helps my foundation look better.

    And the Jack Black lip balm is my most favorite lip balm ever! I love that both my husband and I can use the same product.

  2. Check out Smith's Rosebud Salve for your lips. I have constantly chapped lips and this stuff is a dream!
