DealDash Skin: Minimizing Pores

DealDash skin pores

Pores. Everyone has them, and it’s an important part of skin care to take care of them. Here are some tips and suggestions from DealDash.

Contrary to popular belief, pores don’t grow and shrink at will. Rather, pores appear larger when they are dirty and clogged. Don’t believe claims of skin cleansers “shrinking” pores, they are just cleaning them out so they appear smaller. Here are some ideas from DealDash to keep your pores looking their best.

Take Off That Makeup

Removing your makeup at the end of the day is an important part of skin care. If you don’t wear makeup, you can skip this section. Removing your makeup before bed is important, your skin does most of it’s rejuvenating and healing at night when you’re sleeping, so be sure that you have a clean face to make things go more smoothly.

Take off your makeup using a makeup remover or a micellar water cleanser. Personally, I use a micellar water cleanser all over my face, and then remove my eye makeup with a makeup remover. After doing these two steps I splash water on my face and blot dry with a towel before putting on my serum, eye cream, and night time moisturizer.

Exfoliation = Smaller Appearing Pores

Using an exfoliant is an excellent way to keep your pores clean and therefore appearing smaller. Skip the drugstore scrub made of nut shells or fruit pits, and get one that is made with sugar or microbeads. The scrubs that are made up of the nut shells or fruit pits can scratch and injure your skin. Sugar scrubs are much better because the sugar just melts away and won’t scratch your delicate skin.

You can even make your own scrub! Make a cup of green tea and add a tablespoon of sugar and a tablespoon of honey after it’s cooled down a bit so it’s warm to the touch but not hot. Smooth the mixture over your face and gently rub it in circles to exfoliate your face. Rinse off with plain water and put dry.

Don’t Skip the Moisturizer

Moisturizing your skin morning and night is an important part of skin care and keeping your pores clean and healthy. After cleansing your skin morning and night be sure to apply a layer of moisturizer. I prefer a thinner moisturizer with SPF 30 during the day,\ and a thicker moisturizer at night. Taking good care of your skin by cleansing, using a scrub, and a moisturizer will keep your skin and pores looking beautifully healthy.

DealDash – Maintaining Your Radiant Beauty

dealdash beauty skin care

Taking good care of your body and skin is important. Here are some of DealDash’s best tips to maintain your body and skin.

Taking good care of your health, body, and skin is very important, especially as we age. It isn’t as simple as just washing your face, there’s more to it than that. Here are some top tips for maintaining your radiant beauty from DealDash.

5 Simple Tips

Here are five of the best simple tips and activities to keep your natural beauty fresh and radiant at any age:

  1. Sleep

You don’t have to stay up late, you’re not missing anything. We have all heard about “beauty sleep”, and I have to say this is by no means just a saying. There are studies that show that sleeping reduces wrinkles, makes your eyes less puffy, and gives you a glowing complexion.

  1.  Running

What other exercise, if not running, gives the most benefits? From a healthier heart to lower stress levels, running will always be one of the main activities to lose weight and tone your body.

  1. Water

Recently, there have been many studies involving water and overall beauty. It has been shown that enough H2O makes your skin glow and clears acne. The studies also show a reduction in hair loss and makes the nails stronger.

  1.  Food Selection

You’ve heard the saying “we are what we eat”, and it couldn’t be more true nowadays when we are inundated with so many types of food. Though fruits are healthy, don’t drink too many citrus juices that might damage your teeth. Grapefruit and lemon juice are well-known enamel enemies. Make strawberries part of your daily life. The Vitamin C helps to build up collagen which reduces the wrinkles. Surprisingly enough, strawberries can actually help whiten your teeth!

  1.  Wash your hair less often

Dermatologists all around the world know that shampooing too often can lead to hair loss and it can damage the health of your hair. Remember: everything that is done too often or used too much can cause damage to your body.

If you’re a little more concerned with makeup than skin care, here’s an extra tip:

Use the Right Tools for the Job

You can have the best eyeshadow money can buy, the world’s most luxurious foundation, or a bronzer straight from the cosmetic bag of a supermodel. But if you don’t have the right tools to apply them, their benefits will be lost. You might as well be applying makeup from the dollar store!

What constitutes the “right” tools? Brushes should be soft and feel gentle on the skin, but also have substance to them so the product can be easily applied to the surface of your skin. If you dip a brush in shadow or blush and the color falls off before you make it to your face, that’s a bad brush, experts say.

DealDash Skin Care – Makeup Removal

dealdash makeup removal

Taking off your makeup nightly is a very important part of skin care. Let DealDash show you some tips and techniques.

Taking off your makeup nightly is one way to be sure that your skin stay healthy, glowing, and blemish-free. Washing your face with soap can leave your skin dry, itchy, and tight. Soap is a definite no-no when washing your face, especially in the winter. Read on to hear how to remove your makeup in a more healthy way for your skin, from DealDash.

Step 1

The first thing that you should do when taking off your makeup at night is to take off any eye makeup and mascara. You can use any makeup remover for this, the kind that contains oil, or oil-free for people who already have oily skin. If you don’t like the chemicals in the eye makeup remover you can also use coconut oil! Just warm up a little in your hand, apply with a cotton ball, and wipe off.

Step 2

Next, you can wash your face using a variety of products. You can use a regular cleanser, makeup wipes, or even micellar water. Micellar water is my favorite way to remove cleanse my face. It’s so easy to use and doesn’t even require water. You can use it on all areas of your face, including eyes and lips. Simply apply the micellar water to a cotton round, cotton ball, q-tip, or even a tissue to the face, eyes, and lips. Then wipe off makeup without rubbing.

Step 3

Finally, you should apply a toner to your face. No matter how well you cleanse your face and remove your makeup there is usually a small amount of residue left behind. Toner removes the leftovers and returns your skin to the proper PH balance. Simply wet a cotton round or cotton ball with toner and wipe your whole face including your neck. There’s no rinsing required! After applying a toner you should follow up with the moisturizer of your choice.

DealDash’s Top 5 Winter Beauty Products

Image result for beautiful winter

Summer and winter beauty are very different. Here are 5 must-have products for winter to keep you looking your best in the cold weather.

In the summer you can just stick your hair in a ponytail, put on some sunscreen, and head out the door. In the winter, your hair and skin need some extra-special care to stay looking their best. Here are 5 must-have products to keep you looking beautiful through the long cold winter.

1 – Moisturizer. Moisturizer for your face is an absolute must for the winter weather. In addition to moisturizer for your face, I would also suggest a thicker lotion than you use in the summer for your body. If you don’t use moisturizer on your face and a thick lotion on your body in the winter your skin will get dry, itchy, and flaky. You can even get tiny micro-tears in your skin that are painful and slow to heal. Do your skin a favor and use moisturizer on your face and thick lotion on your body. Remember, even though it’s winter, be sure that you buy moisturizer with SPF in it to protect your skin from the harmful rays of the sun.

2 – Lip balm. Lip balm is very important in the winter. Lip balm is just like lotion…for your lips! If you don’t like the feel or smell of traditional Chapstick or Carmex, you can try one of the newer EOS or Burt’s Bees lip balms. Remember, just like the rest of your skin, your lips and the skin around your lips can also get tiny micro-tears in your skin that are painful and slow to heal.

3 – Hair dryer and flat-iron. Your hair dryer is very important in the winter. In the summer it’s fine to let your hair air dry – it’s healthier for your hair, saves time, and also saves electricity. However, in the winter it’s important to dry your hair before you go outside so you don’t get sick. I know, I know, germs make you sick, not cold air – but if you go outside with wet hair your defenses are down and you’re more likely to fall prey to a winter bug. I also suggest using a flat-iron in the winter after you have dried your hair with the hair dryer – the winter is a terrible time for static, and I find that I have less static in my hair after I have used my flat-iron.

4 – Face mask. No, I don’t mean a sleeping mask! I suggest a lovely, nourishing face mask for the winter weather. You can get one that you smooth on your skin and then wash off, or you can get one of the super-popular Korean or Japanese paper face masks that you wear, then take off and throw away. These are great, I find them to be easier and much less messy than the kind you smooth on.

5 – Whitening strips/whitening toothpaste. There’s nothing nicer than a brilliant white smile in the winter. It makes you look healthy and happy, even when the temperatures are low. Use the whitening strips, and then keep up your new look with your whitening toothpaste.

DealDash Does Nail Art

Image result for nail art

Nail art is a fun hobby that you can pick up easily and inexpensively. Give it a try!

I would like to start off saying that I am in no way an expert in nail art – As a woman in her mid-30’s I have been painting my nails for 20 years or so, but only got into nail art in the past few years. There are some amazing nail artists out there, but it takes time and patience to make real works of art on your nails. With that said, you can have a lot of fun playing around with all of the different colors and patterns on your nails. And unlike some other hobbies, you can get started using supplies that you probably already have at home.

Let’s start you off with an easy, cute design that you can customize to match any outfit – flowers!

Supplies:

  • Nail Polish in 3 colors of your choice, plus a clear base & topcoat
  • Nail polish remover & Cotton rounds, q-tips
  • Pin with plastic pinhead (like for sewing)

Directions:

  1. Remove any old nail polish that is on your nails.
  2. File your nails to get the shape and length you want.
  3. Paint a clear basecoat on your nails, let dry.
  4. Paint your background color on your nails, let dry.
  5. Using the pinhead, put 5 round drops of 1 color on each nail, positioning so they all share an edge, let dry. This will be the main part of your flower.
  6. Using the pinhead, take a different color of polish and put 1 larger drop of color in the middle of the flower that you just painted, let dry. This is the middle of your flower.
  7. After you have completed all of your flowers and let them dry, paint your topcoat on, let dry.
  8. Admire your flowered nails!
