5 Must Have's In Your Beauty Kit!

Posted On: - 2008-10-20 22:52:48


Every woman who has a serious skin care regimen has to have a beauty kit. And the beauty kit contains tools to cater to this passion.

Here is a list of beauty tools that you should absolutely carry in your beauty kit:

Cleanser
It is one of the most important parts of the beauty kit. A basic skin care regimen begins with a cleanser. Therefore it constitutes as a vital tool for your beauty kit. Keep a good quality facial cleanser handy at all times. .

Use a mild cleanser to wash your face twice a day, once in the morning and once at night. Cleansing you face in the morning lets you start your day with a clean and dirt free face and doing the same at night makes sure that your skin gets rid of any impurities like dirt, pollution and residual make up. Many women give in to the temptation of using a regular bath soap to wash their faces. However, one must keep in mind that the skin on the face is much thinner and fragile than the rest of the body and thus requires gentle treatment.

You could use Obagi C Cleansing Gel that gently cleanses your face and removes all signs of accumulated dirt and oil residues.

Moisturizers
After the cleanser comes the moisturizer. The basic purpose of keeping a beauty kit handy is to take care of your skin for whatever may be the situation or place you find yourself in. And a good quality moisturizer is absolutely essential. Carry a simple moisturizer that caters to your particular skin type so that your skin remains hydrated all day and is protected against skin damage and undue dryness. Apply the moisturizer twice a day, once in the morning and once at night.

Eye Make-up Remover
This is perhaps the most undermined, but yet vital parts of skin care regimens. Eye make up removers are especially formulated to dissolve intense residual pigments of eye make up that don’t get removed by regular cleansers. The area around the eyes is very fragile. You need a special remover to deal with this fact.

You can use Obagi ELASTIderm Night Eye Cream to soothe the gentle areas around the eyes and nourish them effectively every night.

Lip Balm
A beauty kit should have a lip balm that heals and repairs your lips. In fact, lip balms are more important to have in your beauty kit than lipsticks. Chapped lips worsen with lipsticks and it is only a lip balm that can set it right. Choose a lip balm that contains ingredients like olive oil, vitamins and have the fragrance of mint, lime etc. Lip balms protect the lips against sun damage, dryness and chapping. Many lip balms now have an SPF rating as well.

Sunscreen
No beauty kit is complete without a sunscreen. Choose a sunscreen that is especially tailored for your skin type and has a high SPF content. Make sure you apply sunscreen daily no matter what the season may be. Harmful rays go through clouds and exist even in winter. Make sure to apply it at least 15 minutes before you venture out and reapply as and when required.
