Hacks to get rid of dry patches | Winter Skin Care

makeupmagique

Even the slightest of change in temperature has adverse effects on my skin! Specially when the temperature gets cooler. The area around the nose and lips tends to get utterly dry! These dry patches are not only visible but even become painful most of the time. I have been noticing this discomfort since a long time until last year when I met these 2 amazing and simple hacks that cured acute dryness overnite (sometimes even instantly), which NO high end moisturizers or cold creams could do.

If you too notice dry patches and feel nothing works! Here you go…

1. Lip Balm

Yes! you heard it right 😀 Apply your lip balm (I have tried using Nivea and Neutrogena lip balms) on the dry patches. Let it sit for sometime, meanwhile you can proceed with your daily chores…. Or you can also apply it overnite and wake up to a happier skin!

I love this hack. It’s a quick fix. If heading out, you can use a clear lip balm.

P.S: I have tried the tinted lip balms also and they worked very well, but you might just want to test first if your skin is allergic to the stain (though I am sure all females are designed in a way that ‘Color on the face’ can never do any harm 😀 )

2. Coffee & Honey Scrub Pack

On a Sunday Morning when you are in a mood of some self pampering dose, mix in 1 teaspoon of honey with about 1/2 teaspoon of coffee (instant/filter), mix it well and apply the yummy pack on your face. Scrub and massage gently. Leave it on for 20 minutes and rinse it off. You will thank me for it 😀

P.S: The coffee can be slightly rough so make sure you massage gently with a very light hand.

These 2 hacks are my saviors and I am sure it would work for you as well!

DIY Highlighting Concealer

DIY Highlighting concealer

I had been looking for a concealer since long, was oscillating between Maybelline Fit Me concealer and the L’oreal true match concealer but then one fine day while I had my creativity hat on, a beauty hack struck me and I ended up with a DIY highlighting concealer!

DIY Highlighting concealer

It’s not only absolutely cheap but also works really well, in fact, I have been wearing it very often ever since I made it.

The beauty of DIYs is that you can customize the product as per your own convenience and requirement. Here you can modulate the highlighting effect by controlling the amount of eye-shadow going in.



You will need

A white highlighting eye-shadow

(The one I used is from a local brand)

Now we don’t really want the eye shadow to be very highlighting, it should be just enough to brighten up the areas where applied

Foundation of your skin tone

(Maybelline Fit Me – 115 Ivory Ivoire)

The highlighting concealers that you get in the market are lighter than your skin tone (and that’s why they brighten up the areas where applied) but here we will be needing the foundation of your matching skin tone, because the eye-shadow when added will lighten and brighten up the shade.

You can get really good containers from Forever21 or NewU stores.

DIY BB Cream

DIY BB Cream

A foundation is not recommended for everyday use, that we all know. A BB cream can be a very good option to give the much needed coverage when opting an everyday base. Of course we have a wide variety of brands offering BB creams but I love the one made by me, the most.

Here is another DIY blog, on how to make your own BB Cream at home. DIYs are a great way to customize your beauty products and needless to say, they turn out much cheaper.

The recipe of this DIY BB Cream works amazingly well for, don’t think I would invest on a branded one after having this made.

DIY BB Cream



Products Used

Nivea Soft Moisturizer

Qty: 3/4 tsp

This moisturizer works well for oily, normal or combinational skin, you can use any other water based or oil based (for dry skin) moisturizer that works best for you. Available online HERE.

Maybelline Fit Me Foundation

Qty: 1 tsp

The shade I used is 115 Ivory Ivoire, you can read a detailed review of this foundation HERE, again this too can be as per your preference. You can increase or decrease the amount of foundation depending upon the amount of coverage you want. Available online HERE.

Aloe Vera-Cucumber Gel from green leaf

Qty: 3/4 tsp

The gel gives the goodness of a primer, helps the BB cream stick to the skin and hence last longer. It is available at grocery marts. Incase you don’t find it, you can use 1/2 tsp glycerin instead.

Container

I used a small nivea soft container, you might as well use a pump bottle for a more fancy packaging. You can get really good containers from Forever21 or NewU stores.

DIY Cream Blush

DIY Cream Blush

A cream blush is one of my favorite product, it not only gives a more natural look, but is also more long lasting compared to a powder blush; and yes of-course it’s a great option for monsoons. If you don’t have one, you can do it yourself!
