Beauty Essentials: finishing touches!
Here are my final steps in my beauty routine!
I sleep or stay in bed every morning till the last minute, so sometimes I throw my hair into a ponytail, but I almost always tease it! The best tools I've found for teasing are this teasing comb (Amped Up by Cricket) and Aussie hairspray with at least 3 of the 4 dots for hold strength. No matter if I wear my hair up or down I tease around the crown of my head by hairspraying, teasing, then lifting the next section. After that I always brush out the top layer so it doesn't look like a rats nest.
For day after showering hair I spray in some Psssssst and it soaks up some grease and makes my hair a bit springier again. Sometimes after showering I use this shag spray, but I'm not sure if it has much effect.
My very favorite lotions are Lush Dream Cream and Lac-Hydrin 5. DC smells like olive oil and LH5 has a weird scent too, but I don't even care because they actually improve my skins texture long term when I use them. I have those red bumps on the back of my biceps (keratosis pilaris), and when I use either of these it really improves them!
I hope this was informative or helpful in some way!
