That and more in The Lipstick League, week of 7.18.16

Question of the Week: What alternative products do you use in your skincare regime? Think supplements, things found in the garden or the fridge…

Answer: A frozen spoon can go a long way to help skin woes! But beyond that, I’m just starting to delve into the skin supplement world by the way of Correxiko Close Up Collagen Booster ($85 for a one month supply). One scoop daily mixed into the liquid of your choice improves the look of wrinkles, fine lines, dull and sagging skin. Collagen makes up 70% of your skin, and by the time you hit 30, you’re losing A LOT of it. Consider this your skin boost!

In addition to the Marine-derived collagen, it contains hyaluronic acid to further help with hydration. And it’s beneficial to joints and arthritis, and in lessening the look of cellulite. I’m only one week in, but I think my skin looks more visibly hydrated already.

Check out the whole line of Correxiko products. They’ve got supplements for skin, hair and nails, as while as items to aid in overall health. Fab packaging to boot!

  1. I call adding alternative ingredients being a “kitchen witch” and incorporate varied stuff all the time. Lately I’ve been into seaweed sheets as masks (literally, wet sheet and apply to face for a horrifying mermaid/serial killer look, plus glowing skin afterwards) and washing my face with turmeric and honey in the morning–exfoliating, soothing, and brightening!

  2. Mine used to be olive oil.. it still is really, but what has really blown everything out of the water is COCONUT OIL! If you bear with me, I’ll tell you all that I use it for and it really is amazing stuff on many levels! I’ll attached another post of my uses-there are MANY!

    1. A mighty Frizz fighter
      Rub a small pea size amount of coconut oil between your fingers to warm it up, and then apply it to the bottom couple inches of your hair for all day frizz protection. If you have thicker, coarser hair, apply the coconut oil from mid-shaft to ends for added frizz control.
      Hair mask
      Coconut oil is a creamy solid at room temperature, and turns to liquid when heated to 76°F. While in the shower, melt your coconut oil by running the jar under the warm water. Then, after shampooing, apply a generous amount of the oil to wet strands and twist hair into a bun. Let it sit for at least five minutes before rinsing to add moisture and shine back into limp locks
      Body oil
      As a solid, coconut oil’s creamy texture makes it the perfect light moisturizer to slather all over. Apply a quarter sized amount right after you get out of the shower so it can sink into your warm skin. The light tropical scent that lingers after it’s applied. Add in a few drops of peppermint or lavender oil for a massage mix
      Highlighter
      Glowy, fresh skin is in! But if that doesn’t come naturally for you, just dab a little liquefied coconut oil onto the tops of your cheekbones, cupid’s bow (the dip above your upper lip) and just above eyebrows for hydrated skin that looks lit from within.
      Makeup remover
      Just a teaspoon (or less) can take off a day’s worth of makeup with ease, no matter the staying power. Massage a dollop of warmed, liquified coconut oil straight onto skin and watch as makeup melts away, then rinse with warm water. To make your own coconut oil makeup remover wipes, melt 1 teaspoon of coconut oil per round cotton pad in a microwave-safe container. Then, lay the cotton pads in an even layer and let them soak up the oil overnight. Store them in the same container or in a plastic baggie and throw them in your carry-on or gym bag for easy makeup removal on the go.
      Body scrub
      Mix a half cup of sea salt or sugar with an equal amount of melted coconut oil, and then use your hands to rub it over any rough patches of skin. The scrub moisturizes while removing dead skin cells. The result: skin that’s baby soft. Add a little more salt or sugar for the extra tough skin on your feet and elbows. On its own, you’ll step out of the shower with a faint tropical scent, but you could also add lavender oil.
      Shaving cream
      Ran out of shaving cream? Coconut oil to the rescue! Just warm the jar under the water and smooth onto legs before shaving. Your razor will glide smoothly, allowing for a super-close shave, and your legs will be moisturized from the oil in the process. Tip: shave outside the shower. The oil is very slippery, so you’ll have an easier time holding onto your razor if your hands are dry.

  3. It’s funny you mentioned collagen b/c I use Great Lakes Collagen Hydrolisate (derived from beef) in my morning coffee. I add in 2 heaping tablespoons and have noticed that my cellulite is not as bad as it’s been in the past. My skin, hair, and nails are also looking healthier. Also, my clicking shoulder joint doesn’t click anymore. I’m not sure if that’s related, but let’s say it is. The Correxiko brand would be great for people who do not consume animal products since it’s marine-derived! I really wish I’d found out about adding collagen to things years ago :/

    Other than that, another home remedy thing I do from time to time is a pumpkin honey mask. Usually when I have leftover pureed pumpkin from baking something else, I take that and mix in some honey, slap it on my face and leave it for about 30 minutes, then rinse and wash my face. I swear it makes my skin glow.
