Most of your cosmeceuticals will most likely be applied at home, either while you get ready for the day or as part of your bedtime routine. However, if you want to protect your skin from the elements and maintain a healthy appearance throughout the day, there are a few items you may want to keep with you all day long. No matter how minimalist your routine is, throw these cosmeceuticals in your purse to have on hand in a skin care emergency.
Cosmeceuticals for Your Lips
The skin on your lips is among the most sensitive on your face and, if you are out in the winter weather, it will quickly become chapped. Not only do chapped lips look unhealthy, but they are also often extremely uncomfortable. You can easily combat this by keeping some kind of medicated lip balm in your handbag to apply throughout the day. Look for one that includes aloe, which is an effective, natural moisturizer that is safe for use on the lips. If you like to have a pop of color to your look, there are many natural tinted lip balms.
Protection for Your Hands
You also want to make sure that you give your hands a little bit of extra love throughout the day. You use them all day long for a number of tasks and to touch a number of surfaces. The wear and tear will eventually begin to show if you aren’t careful. Look for a moisturizer that not only hydrates your hands but one that also disinfects them. Keep in mind that traditional gel hand sanitizers are notorious for drying out the skin, so try to avoid them if you have another option available.
Sun Protection All Year Round
Cosmeceuticals with SPF in them are not just for your beach bag. If you are failing to not only use sun protection each day but also failing to reapply it regularly, you are putting yourself at risk for a number of skin care issues ranging from wrinkles to age spots and even, in some cases, skin cancer. Choose a small sunscreen tube or even a tinted moisturizer to keep on hand for your exposed skin, no matter how cold the weather outside might be.
Cosmeceuticals are not only for your morning and evening routine. You should be keeping a few key products in your purse to keep your skin healthy and beautiful all day long. For more information about our cosmeceuticals or to get an order started, click here.
