I’d like to share with you some things I’ve learned when shopping for skin care products. I am pretty natural and “crunchy” as far as my normal regime, and I believe with a bit of planning you too can take excellent care of your skin without breaking the bank.
~If you are using any product with oil in it be extra careful in the tub!!!~
Scrub That Sissy Skin
I’m sure you’ve seen and heard a ton about scrubs to exfoliate your skin to keep it at it’s freshest. They are absolutely a great item to keep on hand, and even easier to make at home. I highly recommend using sugar rather than salt, it just seems less drying and more luxurious. Also, use your handy Ninja or other small capacity blender to give that sugar a few swirls to break it down a bit so it’s still scruby, but not so harsh. Break it down further, and use it on your face once a week (or less!) and don’t forget those lips! With this hint, do your research and find your favorite and handiest ingredients to mix up and pamper yourself with!
Ways to Keep Your Sissy Self Soft
The second thing I want to address is staying moisturized. Turn down the heat with that shower or bubble bath! It strips the natural oils from your skin! I’ve also discovered that if, after washing in tepid water with your favorite face wash, your face is still dry and taut, perhaps you need to switch face washes! Less is more, and if you can remove your sissy make up with a gentle cleansing wipe and then rinse with clear water, you may notice a big difference. Also, moisturize as soon as you can after stepping out of the shower or tub.This traps the water into your skin, which is really what makes you soft!
Beauty and Moisture Start From Within the Skin
My next bit of advice is to drink your water!! You can do your own research on how much is recommended for your body size and activity level, but if you want a quick rule of thumb,drink between half an ounce and an ounce of water for each pound you weigh, every day. For example, if you weigh 180 pounds, that would be 90 to 180 ounces of water a day. I suspect if you work out hard core, you need to replace fluids above and beyond that, but for good skin health aim high! (and unfortunately, no, coffee and tea do not count as water!)
If you are having a harsh winter, or your area is especially dry (you may know this by the static!) consider adding a humidifier to your bedroom at night- cool mist, other wise it may become too tropical in your room!
Following these simple, inexpensive tips can keep you soft and smooth all winter, so you are ready to bare some skin come Spring!
