Apr. 24, 2020
The desire for flawless skin is a double-edged sword—we can conceal our breakouts and uneven skin tone with layers of makeup (which could be the very source of said skin issues), or we can dive deep with our skincare. When the two worlds of skincare and makeup collide, however, this not only becomes a multi-tasker’s dream, it becomes the best thing you can do for your skin. Of course, this bodes the question, “why isn’t all makeup infused with skincare ingredients?” Until we find that answer, keep scrolling to find out the best skincare-makeup hybrids.

What it means to blowdry down the hair cuticle!
Let’s simplify what it means when a hairstylist says to blow dry down the hair cuticle: When you think of your hair, think of the shingles on a roof. They’re all laying down but on top of each other. The cuticle of our hair is doing the same! When we blow dry up or at the hair cuticle, it causes all those little shingles to stand up- causing frizz, loss of moisture, and hair damage. When we blow dry down the hair cuticle, all the shingles can lay flat against each other and be the protective barrier that they’re supposed to be. If you’re having trouble with extra frizz or loss of moisture pay attention to the direction that your blow drying. This could make all the difference!
