4 Ingredents that Keep the Skin Hydrated All Day

 Hey Lipstick Lunatics, please remember that the ingredients are the important factor in skincare.  This is why I like to give you my favorite ingredient for each skincare concern.  Today lets talk hydration and what ingredients you need to look for.  ALL DAY HYDRATION!


This is the "TOP DOG" in skin hydration.  It is a humectant  that is able to retain up to 1000 times its weight in water.  Hyaluronic acid , because it an humectant it also has the ability to attract moisture from the environment and pull it toward the skin.  

All skin types can benefit form it.  It is also good for the young or the old.  Everyone should add this to their routine.  Do be careful to make sure that the formulation of the product is good for your skin type.


Another all time favorite especially with the aging crowd. Yes Vitamin E fights aging. When looking at the entire picture it also great for young skin as well., especially if it is paired with Vitamin C.  Vitamin E  nourishes the skin while helping to strengthen the skin barrier. It also helps with regeneration and protecting the skin.  

If your having aging skin, dry skin or are constantly exposed to the sun you need Vitamin E in your life.  


This multi purpose ingredient never disappoints.  It is just a good choice over all.  Honey has a natural moisturizing agent that will re-hydrate the skin.  It will keep the surface of the skin protected and fully moisturized.  It is a must to add honey to your routine because your skin will stay hydrated longer as well as look plump, soft and bright.  Again the quality of the formulation is important.  Best for dry and flaky skin.


Known as an anti-inflammatory, healing the skin after irritation or damage.  So many are not aware that this ingredient is great for hydration.  Not only does it soothe sensitive skin, but it promotes a healthy skin barrier.  As moisturizing agent it is able to penetrate deeply and it is a humectant helping the skin to retain moisture.  It is also an emollient that has long lasting hydration and moisturization.  Great addition to skincare routine.

If you suffer from dry skin I hope this information helped.  Remember knowledge is only good if it is put in action.  So start a skincare routine and put this knowledge to use.

Underwear that Fits Correctly ARTICLE: There is one very easy trick to making all your clothes look good (even when you’re wearing your own 34-year-old Duran Duran t-shirt – the oldest piece of clothing I own by a very, very long way). That number 1 trick? Get your underwear right. Oh, I can’t tell you how many years I spent wearing the wrong kind of underwear. The wrong size bra, ill-fitting knickers, the wrong  shape  bras… I’ve learnt a new trick just recently – but first, that t-shirt! My original Duran Duran Seven and the Ragged Tiger tour t-shirt is mine –  from 1983 . I cannot tell you how happy I am to be wearing my most treasured t-shirt and oldest item in my wardrobe, an item I thought until recently was most probably lost. I knew I hadn’t deliberately got rid of it, I just knew I’d put it somewhere ‘safe’ (that old chestnut!) and I’d been looking for it for years.

Vitamins Needed for Healthy Skin

Research suggests that some vitamins might play a key role in skin health. In many cases, these vitamins are most effective when a person applies them directly to the skin. Following a healthful, balanced diet that is free of vitamin and nutrient deficiencies may improve skin health by boosting overall health. Vitamin A Many multivitamins contain 100 percent or more of the recommended daily intake of  vitamin A . Other  good sources of vitamin A  include carrots, dark leafy green vegetables,  sweet potatoes , and  eggs . Retinoids, including retinol, tretinoin, isotretinoin, and similar chemicals, are manufactured forms of vitamin A. B-complex vitamins Several  B-complex vitamins  may improve skin health. The water-soluble vitamins are readily available as supplements, including as supplements that include all 12 B-complex vitamins. Research into the role of vitamin B-complex supplements is promising, though inconclusive. A  2018 study  found that vitam
