Five Genius Ways to Cure Chapped Lips

Chapped lips occur when the skin on the lips becomes very dry. We are constantly exposed to sun, wind and with a tropical climate that we have there’s a high percentage that a lot of us suffer from dry and chapped lips. You may say stocking up on lip balm is the answer to this – IT IS NOT! I actually have five brilliant ideas to solve the problem. If you want to get stunning lips, read on and follow my genius ways to cure chapped lips.

How to Get Rid of Chapped Lips

1. HUMIDIFIER – Turn it on at night as it helps to keep your lips (yes, not only your skin :D) moisturized.

2. APPLY LIP BALM – Prior to washing your face. If your favorite facial cleanser has Salicylic acid and Benzoyl Peroxide, it is drying out your lips and can cause chapping.

3. EXFOLIATE – No budget to buy a lip exfoliator? No problem, you can make one at home = SUGAR + HONEY. It will remove the dead skin by gently massaging it with the said ingredients.

4. APPLY OIL – I recommend Coconut oil, Almond oil, Cocoa butter, Rose hip oil (my fave). Rub a little amt on your lips to protect them from further damage.

5. DRINK WATER – 8-10 glasses is ideal. It also makes your lips look supple.

Make Fit Happen with Maybelline Fit Me Matte Foundation

The highly anticipated and demanded foundation is finally here in the Philippines! I am so happy when I receive a text message from the Maybelline counter SA informing me that they have it at Watsons. I visit the counter the same day and I’m able to get my hands on the Fit Me Matte Foundation yay! Tried it a couple of days with and without primer and my skin feels really good. I am impressed!

Packaging:

It comes with a glass bottle with a black screw on cap which is quite nice except I don’t like the fact that it doesn’t come with a pump as it can be difficult to get the right amount of product out when required. But if that’s not a deal breaker for you, Matte + Poreless Fit Me Foundation is worth considering for normal to oily or combination skin. It is also travel friendly as nothing happened when I brought it on my latest business travel.

Shades:
120- Classic Ivory, 125-Nude Beige, 128-Warm Nude, 220-Natural Beige, 222-True Beige, 228-Soft Tan, 230-Natural Buff, 238-Rich Tan, 310-Sun Beige, 330- Toffee

How to Use/ Apply:

  1. Swatch the foundation on your jawline to find your FIT.
  2. Pour a small amount of your shade on the back of your hand.
  3. Dab on it using your ring finger.
  4. Apply on 5 points on your face.
  5. Blend easily using your ring finger or with an applicator.

Skin situation: Combination skin and get oily on the t-zone.

It has a slightly thick texture but it blends easily into the skin. The new Fit Me Matte + Poreless Foundation from Maybelline New York states that it is for Normal to Oily skin type so if you have dry skin it is also suitable for you AS LONG AS YOU PREP YOUR SKIN! Another great feature with this foundation is that it doesn’t cause clogged pores or break me out! If you do have large pores, you’ll appreciate this wonderful foundation because it has blurring tech. It also covers all the redness and even out my skin.

Ayesha Heart Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless Foundation Experience

My initial reaction when I applied it on my face is it has a nice texture. It mattifies enough but doesn’t over dry your skin which is EXCELLENT! On one layer, it does have amazing coverage. On 2nd layer, it definitely got more coverage, it’s buildable plus it gives a natural healthy look to the skin. It’s creamy, not too liquid-y and as far as application, I like the finish with a beauty blender over a brush and I can get away with using this foundation without a primer.

Coverage:

I say Medium coverage if you use the foundation alone. The coverage is decent for daily wear, it even out the skin; do not expect it to hide blemishes or scars. Want full coverage? Use it with the Fit Me Powder. After applying the Maybelline Fit Me Matte foundation, Fit Me Concealer and powder, my complexion is so much clearer, my pores looks smooth, it feels really light on the skin.

Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless Foundation provides a decent wear time of about 6 hours. With our weather today in Manila, this baby kept my face shine-free although I needed a touch-up the foundation survived and did not budge much. Normally lasts 8-12 hours, for me it lasted about 8 hrs. This has become my no.1 this is my new Holy Grail foundation hands down. MAYBELLINE FIT ME MATTE FOUNDATION IS ONE OF THE BEST DRUGSTORE ONES OUT THERE!

What I like about it:

  • Very affordable
  • Blends easily
  • Gives a natural matte finish
  • Perfect for daily use
  • Lightweight
  • Buildable
  • Several skin-flattering tones to choose from

What I don’t like about it:

  • The bottle does not come with a pump

Verdict:

Maybelline Fit Me Matte Foundation is of the best ever made! It is lightweight, full coverage and great price. This foundation gives a natural healthy look to the skin, mattifies enough but doesn’t over dry your skin. WHat I love the most is the blurring effect, it eliminates the look of pores and achieves natural looking skin.

Price: Php399

Top 6 Nivea Skin care Products

Top 6 Nivea Skin care Products

NIVEA understands skin like no one else. They work extensively with different skin types and the different care requirements brought about by culture, gender and age. Nivea care for all your skin; whether you’re male or female, young or old, fair or dark, oily or dry, sensitive, normal or anything in between. They have developed numerous innovative skin care products over the past few decades – from deodorants to sunscreen products. Today I’ll be sharing my favorite products from the one of the most recognized and trusted skincare brand – NIVEA.

 

It All Started with Nix

Before NIVEA Creme’s success story could begin, something entirely different had to be invented – Eucerit. It acts as an emulsifier and combines oil and water into an extremely fine, stable mixture. Dr. Isaac Lifschütz had developed this completely new emulsifier by 1911. Dermatologist Professor Paul Gerson Unna presented it to Dr Oscar Troplowitz, chemist and co-founder of Beiersdorf.  He realized that the water-in-oil emulsion would form the perfect base for a cosmetic skin cream. All they now needed was a name. And to find one, Dr Troplowitz needed to look no further than the cream itself. Once the emulsion was finished, it had a snow white color. The name NIVEA comes from the Latin words “nix, nivis” and means “snow”. When translated, NIVEA literally means “snow white”.
