Day 8: Have a beauty secret (e.g. hair tip, make up tip)? Share, please!
So I'm pretty sure I could write a book full of my favorite beauty secrets and tips. I love them! But here are my top two favorite tips!
Beauty Tip #1:
I put on sunscreen every single day. Doesn't matter if it's rain or shine, it is on my face and neck! And of course on days where my arms/legs are bare, I put it on them as well!
I think people still underestimate the importance of using sunscreen on your skin! I grew up with my mom always reminding me to put it on everyday, and I appreciate it. Not only does it protect against skin cancer, it prevents wrinkles, and keeps your skin beautiful. Sunscreen helps shield collagen and keratin, which are vital for beautiful skin. And if you are as pale as I am, it keeps you from burning in the five seconds you are outside.
Beauty Tip #2
Don't over wash your hair
Since I am a hairstylist, I often get asked if it's a good thing to wash your hair everyday. And no, it is MUCH better to skip a day or two in between. Your scalp produces oils that are really conditioning for your hair, and washing it everyday strips them away. Many people with oily hair don't realize that washing it everyday can be contributing to that. Your scalp starts overproducing oil when it is being taken away all the time. Skipping washing gives your hair more hold and manageability, it maintains your hair color longer, and saves you money on shampoo! Now I don't think everyone is able to do this, as it greatly depends on the hair type, but the majority of people's hair benefits from a shampoo-free day!
Those are my own personal beauty tips! Stay tuned for a post about my updated etsy shop, and the rest of project 31!
