Have you been watching the news? Superstorm “Bering Bomb” is upon the US – and I heard some states will see temps drop by 40 degrees or more! It’s time to take care of that skin of yours! As Aveeno Ambassadors, Make Her Up has some great tips for keeping your skin nourished this cold winter!

It’s November, which means the onset of colder temperatures and the start of National Healthy Skin Month! As temperatures and humidity drop, unpleasant changes can start to affect your skin. Your facial skin can become vulnerable, especially if you tend to suffer from redness and dryness. That’s why it’s important to follow a winter skin care regimen specifically to care for your facial skin.

In celebration of National Healthy Skin Month, dermatologist Dr. Lisa Chipps is revealing a few simple tips to keep your complexion looking its best this month and all winter long!

· Both morning and night, cleanse your face with a gentle cleanser like AVEENO® Ultra-Calming® Foaming Cleanser. Its gentle formula will help prevent over-drying or aggravating sensitive skin.

o If you wear make-up try AVEENO® Ultra-Calming® Makeup Removing Wipes to gently remove dirt, oil and makeup before you go to bed.

· Moisture is essential during the winter months. After you wash your face, gently pat it dry and immediately apply a good moisturizer to prevent moisture loss. Be sure to reach for a moisturizer with a SPF of 30 or higher. SPF is always important – yes, even in the winter! This helps to protect against aging skin concerns, sunburns and skin cancers caused by UV rays reflecting off of the snow and ice.

· And last, but not least, general health and well-being promote great looking skin year-round. Eat a healthy diet, exercise regularly, drink plenty of water, sleep – seven to eight hours daily, and manage your stress for a beautiful, healthy looking complexion.

New! Osmosis CC Cream with Japanese Peppers & Reflective Lifting Technology

osmosis cc cream

I have tried so many BB and CC creams over the last year and there are very few that are even worth mentioning. When I heard about the new Osmosis CC Cream I figured it would be another tube on the shelf that looked and felt more like a tinted moisturizer.

The Japanese Pepper ingredient sounded interesting so I figure why not give it the old college try. So hoped out of the shower and pumped a bit on my hand. At first the color took me by surprise that it was so white with tiny color beads. I thought it was going to be way too light.

Then I applied to my skin and noticed once I started rubbing it in the little beads of color burst and it actually matched my skin perfectly. Better than I could match myself shopping for foundation.

I happened to have a minute the first time I tried this and took a before and after picture. Now after a rough week, and little sleep I was looking like I was rode hard and put away wet (and not in a good way).  After I applied it I was pleasantly surprised how much better my skin looked. It evened out the ruddiness and hid the marks of a crappy week of sleep. My skin felt and looked so much smoother and clearer.

I have been using this daily for almost 2 weeks now. Yep, this has become my daily go-to foundation. And I love how great it makes my skin look, good enough I skip mascara and other makeup most days. But my favorite thing is it stays matte all day long, no mid day shine or end of day greasy feel. My skin looks and feels amazing from the moment I apply to when I remove it at night.  All that and its improving the tone and texture of my skin while its on. Think will be a long term relationship for me.

 

Osmosis Colour CC Cream
Light Lifting Effects & True Tone Technologies paired with Japanese Pepper Extract provide skin-tightening, correcting and brightening benefits

Osmosis Colour’s NEW CC Cream provides natural, lightweight color correcting coverage to perfect, tighten, smooth and illuminate the skin.

Available in 4 shades (Neutral, Ivory, Warm & Mocha), the line creates a bright even tone with lifting and hydrating benefits. The result is a cream that restores uneven skin tones, reduces dark spots, and minimizes pores while offering anti-wrinkle and elasticity support.

As one of the most scientifically advanced skincare lines, the magic behind the Osmosis Colour CC cream lies in True Tone Technology and their exclusive Light Lifting Effects. True Tone Technology features natural makeup encapsulated in micro-capsules that burst to provide perfect pigments that transform into your own skin tone when applied. The cream’s formula is then enhanced with Light Lifting Effects which diffuse skin discoloration while giving the enhanced appearance of a brighter, more youthful complexion.

Product Highlights

  • Titanium Dioxide: Excellent natural UV protection with light reflective benefits. The reflective qualities create the effect of brightening and lifting of the skin’s appearance.
  • Adenosin: Has the ability to increases the production of dermal fibroblast proteins (elastin and collagen), It increases blood flow to the outer layers of the skin improving cell volume resulting in a healthier and more youthful appearance.
  • Zanthoxylum Piperitum (Japanese Pepper) Fruit Extract: Source of antioxidants which are essential in preventing and repairing damaged tissue by slowing down the effect of free radicals on the skin.
  • Usnea Barbata (Lichen) Extract: A natural anti-bacterial agent, a potent anti-microbial and anti-fungal agent with anti-biotic and anti-inflammatory benefits.

While the beauty products are free from handcuffs and whips, the rope-bound ‘Desire Me’ blush trio and brush ($49) is sure to raise a few eyebrows.

Then there is the $79 ‘Give In To Me’ set, which includes a four-shade eyeshadow palette, eyeliner, lipstick, lip gloss and mascara and comes complete with a lockable keepsake box, perfect for hiding any illicit secrets.

The range, which will be sold exclusively at Sephora, also includes two ‘Tease Me Lip Trios’, in ‘Innocent’ and ‘Passionate’. Priced at $32 each, they feature a smudge-proof lip liner, a long-wearing lip gloss, and a more lightweight lip gloss.

The beaded bracelet is pretty and feels great on. My favorite feature is the gorgeous filigree charm, totally in love with the pattern. The bracelet is easy to fill, just remove the bale then pop open the charm and fill with fragrance beads. Snap the charm shut and hook it back to the bracelet and you have a piece of jewelry that looks and smells fantastic. I tried the Tuscan Fig and I can’t get enough.

If bracelets aren’t your thing no worries, there is also a collection of necklaces  and earrings that are just as gorgeous. And the best part you can buy the fragrance beads in different scents to refill your jewelry!
