Sweets, while we love a good crinkle cookie, cracked skin is not a good (or comfortable) look.
Even if you don’t normally have dry skin, changing temperatures and winter weather can dry you out. But dry skin doesn’t mean you have to lather your face in Vaseline and avoid makeup! We’re sharing a few of our tried-and-true beauty hacks to fight dry skin. Prepare for beautiful skin, fresh out of the oven!
Beauty Hack #1: Oil Up!
Oils are a girl’s best friend. Even if you usually have oily skin, a hydrating face oil can help your skin better regulate its oil production. Start your makeup prep with Wake & Bake Hydrating Face Oil for an easy way to add moisture into your daily routine.
Wake & Bake Hydrating Face Oil is infused with Grape Seed Oil, which not only moisturizes your skin, but can help reduce the appearance of those smile lines we love to hate, repair damaged skin, and add that inner glow. This recipe also uses Orange Peel Oil with Vitamin C to help rejuvenate and restore your skin.
The options are endless. Whether you use the oil on your face, neck, cuticles, or split ends, Wake & Bake Hydrating Face Oil will help nourish and moisturize. Think of this oil as the salt in your spice rack – it makes every recipe better.
Beauty Hack #2: Get Your Scrub On
Exfoliating is a must in the winter to get rid of dead skin cells and clear the way for beautiful, smooth skin. Although face and body scrubs usually take the reins in winter, don’t forget about your lips! Lips need gentle exfoliation, especially if you’re planning on pairing your pout with a Matte or Metallic Matte Lip Whip. Give yourself a smooth surface for lip looks with our Sugar Lip Scrub.
Sugar Lip Scrub both exfoliates and hydrates your lips to save time and give you the care your lips crave. For gentle exfoliation and a pinch of plump, dab on some Sugar, and scrub in circular motions with a dash of pressure. For extra overnight moisturizing care, apply just before bed and wake up to soft, supple lips.
Beauty Hack #3: Swap the Matte for Crème
As much as we love matte lips, some days we just need something a little more moisturizing. When you want long-lasting color on your lips, reach for our new Crème Liquid Lip Whips. One swipe serves up bold color, extra moisture, and long-lasting freshness.
For extra moisture, first apply a thin layer of lip balm, then lock it in with a Crème Liquid Lip Whip on top. Instead of drying to a matte, which can feel uncomfortable with super dry winter skin, your lips will stay hydrated and moisturized with a creamy liquid lipstick.
Beauty Hack #4: Switch From Powder to Cream
Powder products often leave a matte finish, which isn’t always the best look for dry skin. For a smooth eyeshadow that adds a dewy glow to your face, use our EyesCream Waterproof Eyeshadows on your lids. Blended to a velvety smooth consistency, our dreamy cream eye shadows glide on with ease. These crease-resistant treats dry to a waterproof finish that won’t cake up or clump, which is just what we all want in the winter.
Can’t leave behind your powder eyeshadows and palettes? No problem. Use our EyesCream eyeshadows as a base to prime your lid for powder, and ensure a smooth final cake face.
