We all like to look our best, but it can be harder to do the basics when you don’t feel good. I don’t mean the times that you stayed up all nigt without sleep, or the times when you drank too much, I’m talking about having health problems.
After finding out that I have Grave’s disease I can attest to that. Everything in your little book of beauty secrets changes. Here are a few tips to boost your beauty confidence, so you can look GOOD even if you feel BAD.
Fall is a great time for fashion, but maintaining your weight to fit into all of the cool clothes may be a problem when you have health issues so opt for waist friendly snacks like Popchips Ridges. They won’t make you feel like your depriving yourself because they taste great, but have all of the things you don’t want. No gluten (great if you have celiac disease), no artificial flavors, no added preservatives, no synthetic colors, no trans fat, and half the fat of regular fried chips. They come in 4 flavors, but my favorite is the tangy barbeque.
The Fall hair trends are full curls, and sleek shiny low ponytails but health issues make hair dull and fragile, so basic shampooing and conditioning may not be enough. Give your tresses extra tlc by adding a mask like the Kerastase Nutritive Masque Magistral to your routine. I’ve talked about Kerastase in a past article, but this is a different collection. The Magistral collection contains resign from the benjoin tree, to intensely nourish hair fibers and protect it from drying out. So hair is soft and shiny.
You can’t style what you don’t have. If you have problems with hair loss (like people with alopecia, and thyroid disease) use vitamins that contain biotin, like Hairfinity. The vitamins are designed to fill the gaps that are lacking in your regular diet to give your hair the added boost it needs. It is clinically proven to make hair grow thicker, longer, stronger and become more vibrant. In 30 days, you will also see less shedding. When I was at the BlogHer event Khloe Kardashian was signing autographs at the Hairfinity booth because she was one of their spokespersons.
DRY SKIN- BODY
Sometimes your issues are with eczema, according to the national eczema association dryness can be a “trigger” so using hydrating products can be key. The Fizzy Milkshakes by Fizz and Bubble can be a great way to hydrate skin while your taking a bath because they contain 8 ultra moisturizing oils as well as other natural ingredience. The oils include olive, aloe vera, jojoba, coconut, avocado, sweet almond, grapeseed and sunflower. It won’t stain your tub or the linens.
DRY SKIN – FACE
For your face its better to use a moisturizer like the Mirakle Cream by The Better Skin Company, which was created by an esthetician. It can be used on all skin types but if you have problems like eczema or rosacea it will also calm the skin as well. Portions of the sale goes towards breast cancer research (October is breast cancer awareness month). Another benefit is that it contains “wonder light” to even out skin tone like hyperpigmentation as well as heal sun damage. You can save $10.00 on the price when you use the code CANDACE10.
