The term sounds yummy, but the benefit it yields is more worthwhile. Hailey Bieber had to say that she does not want to look like a glazed donut when she hits the bed. A lot of us would want the same, not have full makeup on when we have the beauty sleep. So it’s advisable to cleanse off the makeup and moisturize the skin before you go to bed. So when you wake up your skin is glistening and glowing.

Since @girlbosstown popularized last year that red nails were getting her a lot of attention, the trend has been coming back. It attracts the opposite sex because they have pretty much seen their moms wearing those during the 90s and taking care of them which is the reason why they seem attracted.

The trend is to improve the efficacy of the active ingredients and minimize irritation through rest periods. Starting with exfoliating on one night followed by retinoid on the second and then resting on the third and fourth. Night two is most beneficial for the skin and helps treat acne to eczema. 3 and 4 are recovery nights that can just be followed up with cleansing and moisturizing. But if you have dry skin, you can just lock moisture with suited products.



So here are some tried and tested successful trends that can keep you busy trying them out for the next couple of days if you are a makeup or a skincare enthusiast like me. Let me know in the comments if you would be trying or already tried any of these trends.




How to protect your lips ? Winter lipcare secrets

Not many people who love the cold weather, can’t deny the fact it is harsh on your skin. It is so harsh on the skin, especially the lips. The cold and chill air, dry and heated air combination make it tight and easy to get cracked.

The first thing you think about before you step out is to cover the body, the last thing you think of would be the mouth or sometimes we even forget to cover it up. Lip skin is tight and delicate, different from the rest of the body, and requires extra TLC. if you compare the magnitude, it dries out ten times faster than the rest of the body.


This is predominant because the lips are covered with 3-5 layers of cells rather than the rest of the body where the skin has 15-16 layers. So being thin in nature it is susceptible to damage like dryness, dullness, and cracks.


The vermillion or the place where you apply lipstick has a thin protective barrier and hence it is more prone to UV damage and pollution.

How to take care of your lips?

CHOOSE THE RIGHT LIP BALM

Choose an ointment-based lip balm


Look for those which have petrolatum and glycerine that help in locking the moisture and help in healing the cracks and dryness.

Avoid those with eucalyptus and menthol


Although these lip balms seem to give you a soothing experience when applied, they tend to dry out the lips. So in the long run they will again lead to dryness and the cycle continues.

Use one’s which have sunscreen


Being thin in nature the lip skin gets more exposed to UV radiation be it summer or winter. Hence using one that has sunscreen will help protect against harmful radiation.

Keep yourself hydrated

Not getting enough hydration leads to dehydration also is one of the reasons for dried lips. Make sure to get the right amount of water.

No licking


It is a natural human tendency to lick the lips when we feel it is dry, but on the contrary, it makes the situation worse. It dries the lip out even faster. Moreover, saliva tends to irritate the lips.

Say no to rub and bites


The dryness may tend to make you get rid of the flaky skin so you attempt to either rub it off or bite it away. It can aggravate the cracking and even lead to sores. So try to control the urge to bite or rub the flakes away.

Prevention of chapped lips

When it comes to preventing chapped lips, following a lip protection regime as part of the morning, night, and outdoor skincare routine is essential. Lock the moisture in your lips by applying a lip balm before getting to bed.
