    5 Tips for Ditching Dry Skin During Winter

    5 Tips for Ditching Dry Skin During Winter

    Dry skin is at its worst during winter. Chapped lips, dried out knuckles, and flaky patches are a continuous battle for many. Here are some easy steps to keep skin gorgeous and glowing all winter long.


    1. Quenching Sheet Masks Are Dry Skin Type’s BFF

    Weekly hydrating masks are a fantastic way to start off on the right foot and prep skin to stay moisturized all week long.


    1. Switching to an Oil-Based Makeup Remover Can Be a Game Changer

    Oil-based formulas tend to be much gentler than cleansing cloths and makeup removers that use harsh chemicals to dissolve makeup. Almond and coconut oil on their own are also great for melting makeup away.


    1. Drench Your Skin Using Milk-Based Cleansers

    Typical cleansers can strip skin of vital oils. Milk is naturally infused with proteins that absorb quickly into skin to keep it healthy, and cream that keeps skin moisturized.


    1. Let Your Skin Feast on Moisturizers At Least Twice Daily

    Look for hydrating natural ingredients and botanicals, like avocado, honey/propolis, cucumber, aloe, and hyaluronic acid. For those with dry-prone skin, carry an extra bottle for spot-dryness throughout the day.


    1. Spritz on the Mist for All-Day Hydration

    Misting can be both preventative and restorative. When applied throughout the day, mists keep skin hydrated and complexions fresh and bright. Don’t wait until your skin already shows signs of dryness.

    Pristine Skin with the Power of Volcanic Ash by Pure Heals: Review with Pics!

    Skincare Sunday Recap

    I've been keeping up with Skincare Sunday, using only Korean Beauty products with natural ingredients, and it's been SO worth it. My skin looks healthier each week, and I'm trying my best to keep up a light, daily routine too. The results?

    • Minimal breakouts.
    • Zero dry patches.
    • Noticeably less redness.
    • Skin that's irresistibly soft.

    Deviating from My Go-To

    Usually I use a BRTC makeup remover, a Vitamin D foaming cleanser by It's Skin, and for months now I've sworn by Pure Heals' Propolis line for toner, ampoule, and cream. I have dry, eczema-prone skin so the honey and mega-dose of propolis are exactly what I need for skin that's hydrated and touchably, satiny soft.


    Even those of us with dry skin need to give our pores some deep-cleaning TLC every now and then. Hello, Pure Heals!

     Time to Deep Clean My Clogged Up Pores with

    Volcanic Pore Heating Gel

    Click the pic or the link to shop Volcanic Pore Heating Gel at Blue Scandal

    I'm not gonna lie, I was STOKED when I found out I would get to try two of the most fascinating items in the Volcanic Line. I had never used a heated gel, or volcanic ash on my face, so I couldn't wait!

    So What's It Like?

    Within seconds, a warm sensation emanates from the gel as I scrub my pores using the gentle silicone brush head. The formula is slick, not oily but definitely slippery and glossy, making it a fantastic deep-pore cleanser and exfoliator in one.

    It rinses clean and doesn't leave residue or oily feeling, but I definitely feel hydrated. The gel isn't stripping at all, which I'm impressed by. I hate using a deep pore cleanser that leaves my skin tight or dry.

    Next Up: Volcanic Clay Mask

    Click the pic or the link to shop Volcanic Pore Tightening Mask at Blue Scandal.

    This mask pack isn't kidding around. I can hold it upside down for DAYS and it won't budge. The dense formula glides onto my skin and stays put, which would make it perfect for a T-Zone treatment for those times when I don't need a full facial.

    After adding the rich, mineral-packed product to my face, I get to sit pretty for around 20 minutes, letting git do its magic. And I'm envisioning all the toxins being absorbed... the gunk being loosened from my pores... the build-up that would soon be washed away with so many dead skin cells.

    So yeah, while I was waiting I took a few selfies ^_^

    The Final Result

    My skin looks immaculate. No makeup on, and it was a no-brainer that I would just skip it all together that day.

    More and more often, Sundays are becoming a day of rest for my makeup routine, giving my skin a chance to breathe.

    The Top 12 List of Awesome Things in Life to Be Thankful For

    The Top 12 List of Awesome Things in Life to Be Thankful For

    An Attitude of Gratitude... and a List that Could Go On Forever!


    Headquartered in the U.S., all of us in the Blue Scandal Crew are talking about the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday - loved ones and good food are the order of the day!

    Pumpkin Pie

    YES we will be having an office potluck - I hope someone brings pie!


    To start off this week of appreciation, the Blue Scandal team is embracing an Attitude of Gratitude, and we're taking a few moments to appreciate the good things we have.


    With that in mind, I asked the staff a different kind of question than I normally do. Rather than find out what their favorite matte liquid lipstick is, or how the new lines of skincare have been leaving their complexion, I asked:


    Hey Blue Scandal Staff, what are some things you're thankful to have in your life?


    The Big 3: Family - Health - Safety

    No surprise here! Everyone I asked shared feelings of gratitude for these three, in one way or another:


    1. Family

    Family in the Snow

    "I couldn’t write a list of thankful things without thinking of my family, who have always been there for me, and to remember those who have left this world too soon, but who I will always love."


    2. Health

    Healthy Lifestyle

    "I know way too many people with health problems to not appreciate my healthy lungs, strong heart, and the illness-free body I’ve been granted."


    3. Safety


    "So many people are living in war, abusive situations, or other unsafe circumstances. I don’t want to forget how fortunate I am to live each day feeling safe in the community I live in."


    I completely agree! Not everyone has these things, and I always want to remember not to take any of them for granted, too. If you’re fortunate to have them, you have so much in life!


    Lots More Awesomeness to Be Thankful For


    There are so many amazing things in the world, and we hope you have lots to feel grateful for! Here are some more answers from the Blue Scandal Crew:


    4. BFFS and Crazy, Silly, Awesome, Anything-For-You, Always There For You Friends

    Best Friends

    You know the ones. They make you laugh hard enough to spray your monitor. When you’re down, they’re right there with ya to wallow, and they know when it’s time to get out and have fun!


    5. Romantic Relationships

    Cute Romantic Couple

    Isn't a boyfriend / girlfriend already included in Number 4? If they're a spouse, don't they count as family? Either way, this answer from Blue Scandal Staff came along often enough to deserve its own section. Those of us who are all moon-eyed and in love are definitely grateful for that Special Someone in life - and those of us with SUPER SECRET CRUSHES also appreciate those butterfy feelings their Confidential Special Someone inspires.


    6. Faith


    More than one person mentioned appreciation for their beliefs, or the Big Guy Upstairs, or something along those lines. Being a part of a spiritual community is something a lot of us are grateful for. No matter what kind of belief system a person has, faith can get us through difficult times and bring us closer to others.


    7. Pets!

    Pet Hedgehog

    This one could be considered family, but they’re their own fuzzy / scaly / feathery brand of friendship that deserves a category all their own. Unconditional love? And then some! I'm definitely grateful to have my little pups in my life.


    8. Creativity


    Sometimes it’s mood inspiring music that helps me feel joyful or gets me through sad times. Other times it’s an incredible book that lets me feel like I’ve experienced another life. It could be a hilarious comic, a gorgeous anime, an uplifting movie, a breathtaking sculpture, but whatever it is, I’m grateful to live in a world that embraces creativity in all its forms.


    9. Diversity


    There are still a lot of struggles, but humankind is striving to embrace differences. Learning about other ways of life and even experiencing the traditions of other cultures make me feel more grounded and connected to others. I’m grateful for the triumphs we’ve made as a human race in accepting differences, and I’m hopeful for future generations to go even further.


    10. Travel - Both First-Hand Journeys and Internet Voyages


    Even if finances and circumstances don’t allow me to travel, I’m grateful that I live in an era when I can go online and meet people from around the world, see their pictures, and even attempt their recipes. I’m especially grateful for the trips I’ve been able to take all over the United States, to Japan, and to Costa Rica - and I hope to be lucky enough to take more trips in the future.


    11. Nature

    Waterfall and Nature

    Our world is changing, becoming more and more high-tech and amazing, but I’m thankful for wide open spaces. Waterfalls, flowers, nature hikes, tide pools, gardens, sandy beaches, snowy mountains - because Earth is a glorious place.


    12. You!

    So Happy Reading the Blue Scandal Blog

    All of us at Blue Scandal are grateful for you! And since you're reading this blog, I'm particularly thankful to you. <3 One of the reasons I'm a writer is because I love my audience.
