Fab Reasons Face Steaming Is Your New Skincare Fave

Wow, do I have a new skincare secret to share with you! If you haven't been steaming your face, you have to make up for lost time. Steaming your face the DIY way isn't at all difficult. You can always buy a steamer, which we happen to have at The Shop. Before you decide on the method, how about you take a peek at the most significant benefits of face steaming?

Cleaning out your pores: steaming your face effectively clears out all the debris clogging your pores, including sebum and other oils, makeup, and dead skin cells. Remember, in clearing out the gunk from your pores, you also minimize their appearance, which makes for softer, smoother skin.

Priming your skin: steaming is an excellent first-step in any skincare routine because it primes your skin for other facial treatments, such as oils, masks, and serums.

Boosting your circulation: facial steaming causes your blood vessels to dilate, which in turn sends more nutrients and oxygen to your skin tissues, resulting in a dewy glow—without a bit of bronzer or highlighter.

Kicking toxins to the curb: as you perspire during your face steaming treatment, you sweat out all the toxins in your skin, particularly the problematic little buggers that create chaos and imbalance.

Mind you, I haven't even mentioned how relaxed you feel after you steam your face. You'll want to melt. Snag a steamer of your own at The Shop and let me know how you enjoyed your first facial steam! Until next time, keep living fabulously!

3 Ways to Stop Dry Skin in Its Tracks

Lovely ladies, today I want to tackle the issue of dry skin. It can happen to anyone, but it gets worse with age. Skincare after 50 takes on new dimensions because cell turnover and elasticity decrease.  Implement the following tips into your skincare routine, and you'll see dramatic improvement in the skin on your face and hands. You can retain your gorgeous glow well into your 50s—and beyond. Promise!

Slather yourself with sunscreen: doesn't matter how old you are, what the weatherman says, or how long you'll be outside because you need to put on sunscreen anyway. Always wear it between 10 AM and 2 PM, and don't forget to apply it to the tops of your hands, too.

Create an age-appropriate skincare routine: to hydrate and moisturize your skin, you need different products than you used in your 20s, such as Bonblissity, which is my personal favorite. It's a serious skincare remedy specifically designed to cure dry skin and hands.

Pass on the hot water: no matter how good it feels to take a steamy shower or a boiling bath, that heat dries out your skin like nobody's business, so train yourself to bathe and shower in lukewarm water, instead. Also remember to moisturize from top to bottom after you dry off—no skipping!

Skincare after 50 is different, but it's not a hassle. You know that I adore Bonblissity, and you can find a bounty of other skin and beauty treasures in The Shop. What are your skincare must-haves?
