That and more in The Lipstick League, week of 9.25.17
Question of the Week: Share a beauty tip that REALLY helped you…
Answer: It’s got to be the tip that helped me get my acne in check: Don’t wash your face in the AM, use only toner. Here’s how it was explained to me:
You just washed your face 8 hours ago when you went to bed. You typically aren’t doing anything during that time that warrants you having to wash your face again when you get up. So a simple swipe of toner on a piece of cotton is enough to clean your face and keep your oil in check. Washing again may actually strip your face of TOO much oil, drying your face out and actually making you break out.
