Eliminate Winter Beauty Busters with Top Tips
From ARA Content
(ARA) - One of winter's biggest beauty challenges is dealing with dry, "static-y" conditions created by the combination of very low moisture in the air and cold outdoor temperatures. Typically worst from November through February, static is the culprit behind clinging trousers, flyaway hair and the snap-crackle-pops that occur when you take off your winter coat and scarf.
When the outside temperatures dip and the inside heat cranks up, it's vital to have a few tricks up your static-free sleeves. The makers of Static Guard anti-static spray, who created the Static Index to help consumers recognize and prepare for high static conditions in their area, offer the following tips on how to stay stylish during the harsh winter months.
- Women on the go should consider keeping a multiple use lip/eye/cheek pencil in their purse for touch-ups during the day. And always keep a tube of lip balm handy in your pocket to ward off chapped, dry lips.
- Stop hair from frizzing by spraying combs or brushes with Static Guard then running it lightly through hair after styling and before hairspray. The versatile product is essential for cutting static on the inside of hats and jacket hoods, too. For a one-two punch, spritz the inside of your pants legs and skirts to further prevent static cling. Be sure to keep a handy tote-size can in the purse or car for "static emergencies."
- For a dewy, youthful look, mix cream or liquid blush with a dab of petroleum jelly and apply to dry cheeks.
- Don't forget your hands! Lock in moisture by slathering on a good hydrating lotion before bed and after the morning's shower.
- Water works: Drink lots of water to moisturize from the inside out, and lightly mist facial skin with distilled water in a small spray bottle after applying makeup to keep it fresh throughout the day.
