Using an SPF Lip Balm

Just like any portion of your body and face, the lips are prone to aging and damage from dangerous uva and uvb rays. To protect the youthfulness and volume of your lips it is recommended to apply a daily SPF to them. Applying an SPF lotion directly to the lips may be overwhelming and foul tasting. It is best to source lip balm products that are formulated with an SPF already.

Sun damaged lips can become cracked, dry and painful. Long term affects could include premature wrinkling. Although there are a few lip balm manufacturers that use an SPF in their formula, many of them are chockfull of chemicals and preservatives. The petroleum in many products could degenerate collagen cells in the lips and could cause the lips to burn even more.

The Evolution of Smooth offers a wide range of all natural lip balms that improve the quality of the skin over repeated use. They currently offer 2 flavors of Active Protection Lip Balm, Lemon Twist and Fresh Grapefruit. Both of these SPF infused lip balms protect, soften and hydrate the lips.

The EOS Lip Balm Active Protection offer 80 minutes of water resistant protection. The Skin Protection Factor is at 15, thus providing a broad range of active protection from the harmful rays. As with all of their lip balms, these ones are made with all natural oils and are infused with important skin nourishing vitamins such as E and A. They go on clear and are free of gluten and preservatives.

As we make an effort to protect the beauty of our skin, we should not forget our lips. Be mindful of the brands you use and make sure the lip balm’s SPF is at least 15. It should also be resistant to sweat and water. EOS products are available on major retail stores such as Target, Walmart, Ulta, Amazon and even Racked.

 

Wengie”s Top Ten Hair Hacks Every Girl Should know

Wengie is a successful Chinese Australian Youtube Blogger who blogs about various topics like beauty, lifestyle, etc., In the video, she has creatively presented ten hair hacks in a very engaging way:

 

  1. Eating the right food is essential to get all the nutrients and vitamins like protein, folic acid, Vitamin C, Vitamin A needed by the body to maintain healthy hair. Wengie recommends popping in one Sugarbearhair Gummy Vitamin every morning for healthy hair. She says that the product is raved about by Kylie Jenner.

 

  1. Cleaning the brush with hot water and soap is another important thing. For great smelling hair, instead of using alcohol-based perfume punch a dryer sheet into your boar bristle brush. Brushing your hair like this will leave the hair smooth and smelling like fresh laundry.

 

  1. For longer looking ponytail, tie half of your hair in pony while tying the other half a little lower than your first pony.

 

  1. For hair mask, use coconut oil. Apply the oil with thick makeup brush over your scalp. Comb the hair n leave for 30 minutes before taking a bath.

 

  1. Always dry your wet hair by patting with a super soft old T – shirt. Avoid rubbing and the use of a coarse and thick towel.

 

  1. Apply hair spray to a thick makeup brush and use it to smoothen your frizzy hair. You can also use hairspray on a toothbrush to smoothen your flyaways near forehead to get the perfect ponytail. If you want your bobby pin to stay longer on your hair, apply hair spray on it.

 

  1. For split ends, twist a bit of your hair and use a sharp, hairdresser scissor to snip the split ends which are sticking out. You can put a small section of hair under and over your finger n while you slide your finger, cut the split ends.

 

  1. For quick waves, pull your hair back in a pony, divide it into three sections and curl each individually with a curler.

 

  1. During super oily hair day, apply dry shampoo or baby powder over your hair and leave it overnight. In the morning instead of brushing, blow dry your hair for good result and volume.

 

  1. If you want to braid your hair while sleeping, use a super gentle rubber band. You can make one from an old nylon stocking. It is good to sleep on a satin pillow case for avoiding hair breakage.
