Part of the joy of putting skin care products on our faces and bodies is the application process. Massaging lotion into our legs, smoothing moisturizer into our cheeks, tapping eye cream into our under eyes — these movements can feel like small luxuries. There’s a reason why people have a “routine.” It’s comforting and can be a steady presence in the craziness of life.
Let’s face it — some days you might not want a full face of makeup (we also get it if you never want a full face of makeup, period). And when you’re traveling, there’s no way you’re lugging around every product you own. But just like skincare can be multitasking, your makeup can be too.
Most conversations about skin care only discuss our skin from the neck up, which, in the grand scheme of it, is only a small percentage of all the skin on our body. Why do we put so much focus on just our face when the rest of our body deserves love, too?
Winter is the season of cozy socks and sweaters, warm drinks… and dry skin. Every time you step outside, your skin is bracing itself against elements like coldness, dry air, wind, snow and/or rain.
The beauty of makeup is its flexibility. There’s no “correct” way of using it — you can use however much or however little you like. And while makeup has been traditionally regarded as the domain of women, it’s 2019. Anyone can wear makeup, for whatever reasons they want.
