Get a Handle on Humidity with Sun Bum and Lumene
What would you rather have: Shiny skin or shiny hair? I think that answer is obvious! I have a few tips below for you to get shine where it counts:
Anti-Oil- For this issue, Zara Mohsin, Skincare expert at NYC’s chic Wink Brow Bar instructs us on how to remove blackheads and turned to Finnish powerhouse Lumene for their two launches of this year!
Most of the time the nose can be the oiliest area of the face and overproduction of oils causes blackheads. As you begin to remove the blackheads you can have a deteriorating effect and you get more and more the more you incorrectly remove them or pick at them. This is why it is essential to do it the right way.
1. NEVER squeeze and remove the blackhead yourself. This will make the pores bigger and you will get more over time.
2. Once you have a blackhead free nose maintenance is key. Take a wet hot towel and put it on your nose for a couple of minutes. Alternatively try to do it after a shower.
3. Take the side of a metal tweezer and run it against the sides of your nose, being very careful not to push down too hard or poke yourself. Do this as a routine so that the blackheads do not form!
4. Always use a toner on top to tighten the pores and voila!
For controlling the shine, Lumene’s amazing NEW Bright Now Vitamin C Shine Control Cream-Gel taps the power of Hyaluronic Acid and Vitamin C to brighten, cool down and mattify skin, all in one! Pair this with their beloved Blur Pore & Line Minimizer and you never have to worry about makeup slipping again!
My thoughts: I use Bright Now Vitamin C Shine Control Cream-Gel right after I wash my face on warm days. Next, I apply the Blur Pore & Line Minimizer and let it dry before I add my foundation. This ensures that my face will stay matte all day. My face looks line free and my pores are completely invisible. These products take years off of my appearance and make my skin look flawless!
