4 Quick Touch-Ups for Dry Skin

November 27th, 2013 By  |  2 Comments   

Hi everyone! It’s the season for dry skin, and sometimes the dryness can be pretty sneaky! This time of year, I often find that I’ll like the look of my makeup when it’s freshly applied, but as the day rolls on and I’m out in the dry air… everything from my lips to under-eyes are visibly dry. Here are a few quick, inexpensive, purse-friendly ways that you can touch-up throughout the day to keep your skin healthy and hydrated!

NYX Dewy Finish Long Lasting Setting Spray ($7.99, Ulta.com)

This setting spray helps you combat the appearance of dryness as soon as you finish applying your makeup. A couple of sprays of this on your face help lock in your makeup look, while removing a powdery appearance. I don’t find that the finish becomes overly “dewy”, but it really makes the face look fresh and keeps the makeup looking like skin. This is great for a little pick-me-up late in the day as well.

E.L.F. Daily Moisture Stick ($6, eyeslipsface.com)

If your main problem area for dryness is the under-eye area, this is the product for you! While I love my full coverage under-eye concealers, they don’t always stay looking so fresh as the day rolls on- especially when you’re applying it on top of fine lines and wrinkles. Just get a small dab of this on your finger, then apply it directly to any dryness under the eyes. It doesn’t un-do your concealer, but instead makes it look freshly applied- plus there’s a bit of a cooling sensation! This is also great for dry patches elsewhere on the face or body.

Jack Black Intensive Therapy Lip Balm – Lemon & Chamomile SPF 25 ($7.50, Ulta.com)

 Dry lips are something I’ve come to expect this time of year, and there are lots of great lip balms that can make your lips feel soothed and moisturized! But I stumbled across a new favorite when I was with my husband, browsing the Jack Black products in Ulta. This lemon lip balm will blow your mind with its amazing scent, but it’s equally impressive in its ability to hydrate chapped lips. I like to put it on before I start applying my makeup so my lips are nice and soft by the time I add lipstick, lip liner or gloss. It’s also handy for touch-ups on the go.

Essie Apricot Cuticle Oil ($7.75, Wal-Mart)

I love keeping my hands moisturized with lotion, but for some reason, my cuticles often remain dry. This cuticle oil has become a must-have for me- not just when I’m doing a manicure, but anytime I feel like the skin around my nails is feeling extra dehydrated. Just apply a tiny drop on each cuticle and rub it in. It makes a world of difference in the overall look of your nails!

  • Ok this has come just in time! I am experiencing dryness for the first time and needed some tips. Thanks Em!

  • Some dogs and cats can actually develop an allergy to fleas.
    No point chucking a list of 50 foods in your direction, when you can’t fit them all onto the one plate.
    There are some superb all-natural remedies
    for keratosis pilaris. That is why frequent consumption of
    oranges, grapefruits (as well as tomatoes), in mild portions, provides the elasticity of skin and slows down the appearance of wrinkles.
    In 2000 the International Incontinentia Pigmenti Consortium concluded that the
    condition is caused by a genomic rearrangement
    of the NEMO gene. The allergy is normally to a substance
    within the food that is being consumed. One that contains vitamin C – important to the
    production of collagen – may help to restore elasticity to stressed, aging skin. Just bear in mind water with excessive
    sugar and also alcoholic and coffee are not advisable for a person’s overall health.
    Life as a parent would be so much easier if your little one
    came with a book of instructions. Rosacea has symptoms of facial flushing
    or red lines caused by enlarged blood vessels. It is described as scattered patches of
    small coarse bumps on the skin normally in the arms, thighs and buttocks and in some cases in the face.
    No one is entirely sure what causes this condition and treatment is very simple.

    People are now relishing complete and reliable all-natural treatment.
    Smoothing on a cream that contains essential nutrients like
    vitamins A, C and E, as well as natural, plant-based emollients like Shea butter, can leave the male
    organ skin soft, smooth and touchable and may even restore sensation that has
    dulled over years of rough handling. This
    vitamin has great ability to fight the process of aging of the skin. Hence, one should stay away from the sun during its hottest hours, which are from nine each morning to four o’clock in the afternoon,
    and employ moisturizers with the greatest SPF count you could find for more sun protection.
    If the skin condition seems serious, you should see your cocker.
    But unfortunately that happens all too often especially
    with teens and singles who are trying to compete with others who have
    flawless skin. So as you can see the products we consume everyday really contain a lot of
    elements that have a positive effect on our body. Melasma is a common skin condition that can occur from over exposure to the
    sun and is quite common for pregnant women to experience this during pregnancy
    but it goes away afterwards.
