I would like to talk in more detail about lip balms. I do get lots of mails about them every autumn and winter. About what I actually use myself, and whether I have any good DIY tips. Recently, though, I have been seeing that increasingly more of you are concerned about how safe lip care is. And that isn’t so strange because if you research lip balms on the internet the first things you read are scary stories about all sorts of hazardous substances in these products. And isn’t it right that you could ingest them without realising? After all, you do apply them on your mouth…
As you may have already read in my previous blog, cleansing properly is essential for beautiful skin. But what may be a good product for your skin may be the wrong one for the person next door. It is important that your cleanser is suitable for your skin type and for the condition of your skin. So, what is a good product for the more oily or combination skin?
Which sun creams are good and which ones should you steer clear of? I understand this isn’t always easy for you. Because if there’s one product which professes to do everything, it’s a sun cream. And then all the misleading claims…‘only needs to be applied once a day’, ‘100% protection’, ‘safe tanning’, ‘you only need a small amount’; such statements give me goose bumps.
No matter how hard I try, I am still unable to convince people of the fact that miracle creams do not exist. Good skincare products can make your skin firm, smooth and radiant again, but that requires a good deal of patience. Wrinkles that just melt away like snow? There is no such thing; honestly! And yet, more and more people have assured me lately that the cream which was demonstrated recently in the shopping centre, the outlet centre, the new warehouse or at a cosmetics party made their skin ‘in no time’ beautifully smooth again.
Expensive products are sometimes better in quality, but very often you are paying purely for the beautiful presentation, an exclusive marketing campaign and a feeling of luxury. As with clothing, bags and sunglasses, cosmetics is also an experience. Yet, ultimately you want value for money when buying something because of what it promises. So: can it also be cheaper?
