7 essential beauty products you need to have at home

Achieve more with less!

 

You do not need to own fifty different beauty products (make-up is not included because having at least twenty different shades of lipsticks doesn’t count … right?!), you just need to pick the right essentials that will work for you. Here’s what makes our beauty routine so much easier!

 

Multi-purpose cream

You know what we are talking about: that one basic cream that you can use on your body as a moisturizing lotion, on your face or on your hands when they are dry. It saves the day every time you run out of face moisturizer, hand cream, body lotion or body oil.

 

After-sun gel

After-sun gel, originally created with the aim of providing relief for sunburn, is not a must-have only during the summer. It works just as well in the colder months because it soothes and moisturizes your skin when you battle with an acne breakout, skin rash, scars, redness or some other unpleasant skin condition. This is why you should have it at home at all times. Especially beneficial are the after-sun gels rich in Aloe vera, the plant that is famous for its healing characteristics.

 

 

Sunscreen

You already know the importance of a daily use of sunscreen, particularly on your face, right? Ultraviolet rays are always present so you should protect your skin every day, not just during the summer. Being exposed to the sun without protection will speed up the natural ageing process – you will get wrinkles sooner and be at higher risk for skin cancer.

 

Good lip balm or lip oil 

Because nobody likes chapped or peeling lips – you have to nourish them on the daily too!

 

 

Skin cleanser

Clean your skin in the morning before applying face cream or any other products you use on your face and in the evening before going to sleep, especially if you wear a lot of make-up.

 

Dry shampoo 

Neat hair is a must for appearing put-together, but very few of us have time to wash our hair everyday. This is why dry shampoo is a real life-saver! Make sure to find the one that is suitable for your hair type.

 

Face mist 

In our opinion, this is an underrated beauty product that can be used in so many ways! You should carry one in your handbag all the time because you never know when you are going to need it. Need to moisturize and hydrate your tired skin after long working hours? Have to fix your make-up before going out? In the need of an extra glow after workout? You got it! Psst, do you want to kill two birds with one stone? Get yourself a tanning face mist that not only hydrates and softens your skin but also gives you a subtle self-tan with just a few sprays.
