Oh, y’all! The weather over the past few days has been absolutely to-die-for! The warm sunshine has me all in the mood for SPRING! SPRING! SPRING!
Now, even though I am mentally ready for spring–I am not physically ready for spring *wink* What do I mean? Well, my hair, my nails, my toenails, and skin are NOT ready for humidity, open toe sandals, and shorts galore. *sigh* What’s a girl to do?!
Well–butter me up and call me a biscuit because this blog post is the answer to (most) of your winter hair, nail and skin problems! For this week’s fabulous Beauty Tues, I am going to talk about five, budget-friendly, miracle products that will help all of us get ready for spring. So, without further ado, let’s hop to it!
1. At-home Mani
I am no nail expert, but I have learned tricks to making the most out of doing my nails at home. Usually, I get about two or three manicures a year. I would love to get one every month; however, that isn’t exactly logical for my schedule and budget *wink*
SO, for the months when making a nail appointment doesn’t work out, I go to this fabulous Fill The Gap Base Coat-Smoothing formula from Essie. It helps repair my nails even in their worse condition + this treatment helps to better my nails before going to the salon for a manicure.
2. Tip-toe Shape
Let’s face it…we probably all get a little self-conscious about our toes when going in for a manicure–I know I do! I always wonder what the nail artist will think about my nails, and this fabulous product Sally Hansen helps relieve some of that worry *wink*
Sally Hansen Cuticle Eraser + Balm helps to gently remove unwanted cuticles while also supplying moisture, unlike a lot of cuticle removing products. This is one of my favorite products for winter-to-spring nail repair.
Note: This product can also be used on the fingernails.
3. Good-bye Flyaways and Frizz
With the prettier, spring weather comes more humidity, and let’s just say that my natural curls do not exactly like that shift *wink*
Over the years, I have tried many different anti-frizz products, and while many of them worked, NONE of them worked as well as the Bumble and bumble. hairdresser’s invisible oil! A lot of anti-frizz products cause hair to be dull and even appear slightly oily; however, that is not the case with the B&b hairdresser’s oil. It is a miracle product that I never thought I would fall head-over-heels for!
I am the world’s worst when it comes to applying lotion throughout the day, so this Vaseline Intensive Care Advanced Repair Lotion is a lifesaver–or shall I say skin-saver! From razor burn to dry patches, this lotion takes my dull winter skin to moisturized spring-ready skin! Give it a try–I think you might like it *wink*
5. Pucker-Up Buttercup
There is no denying how rough winter weather is on our lips–the constant chapped lips and windburn really take a toll on the texture of our lips. This simple DIY lip scrub inexpensively removes all that dry skin + helps you get softer lips without even leaving your house! Check out the VIP video below.
