THE LOCALLY MADE SKINCARE MY MAKEUP ARTIST FRIEND IS LIVING FOR WHILE SHE’S ISOLATING
I was just thinking to myself how important it is to keep up with self care during the current situation, specifically our skincare and grooming routines.
It does not have to stop because we are quarantined although it is tempting to just let things go and not give any of it as much attention.
Some might figure, “Why should I? I’m not going anywhere!”
I believe it is extremely important now since everyone is stressed and worried. (The best thing we can do is to keep taking care of ourselves!)
Also, we all find ourselves having the time. (No excuses for skipping.)
So, every day wake up , put on some cute and cozy joggers or loungewear, and take care of YOU.
Here are three skin and body care products (from Rhode Island-based artisans and makers) that Karen is loving right now.
The New Bedford Soap Company Fountain of Youth Cream…I first discovered it at the Providence Flea. No animal products, handmade in small batches, and chock full of plant based emollients and essential oils, it feels like magic. I also use their natural citrus deodorant stick.
The Peyton Co.Hyaluronic Acid 2% Serum, for adding hydration and plumpness before moisturizer…I apply to my lips at night before lip balm. I wake up plumped!!
JAVA’s coffee-infused Lip Scrub and Lip Balm…for keeping those lips soft, hydrated, and crack free! 💋
I have 40 years of makeup and skincare experience.
