Fashionistas….with winter almost gone, wouldn’t you agree our skin has gone though lots of wear and tear over the past several months? Dry, flaky, dull, and rough skin can haunt us during this time but can also serve as a much needed reminder to set aside “me” time to service your skin appropiately, just like you would your car. There are a number of services at your local spa that have skin rehydration benefits (such as warm shea butter and mud wraps), as well as, home remedies that will do the trick just as well. Always remember though the number one rule for hydrating your skin, not only during this time but year-round, is drink plenty of water!
Now, as you think about your skin rehydration remedies, let’s not neglect the one part of our body that serves as the center of attention – our lips. Let’s talk real here fashionistas, you wouldn’t want to see, let alone kiss, anyone with dry, crusty, jacked up lips, would you? Well neither does anyone else so just don’t do it! Chap stick will do the trick temporarily, however, wouldn’t you prefer to have soft, smooth, hydrated lips all the time? Of course you would, who wouldn’t. Your Aurora Examiner is here to share with you a daily routine that will have your lips smooth as a baby’s bottom. It’s called Satin Lips® from Mary Kay. This simple 2-step system provides benefits beyond moisture. Senior Mary Kay consultant, Wendy Hayum-Gross* explains, “lips have an extremely thin outer protective layer. As the body ages, the already thin layer becomes thinner. To compound the situation, we lose the oil and water barrier that keeps lips hydrated. Without the usual protective layer of sweat and body oils, the lips dry out faster, become chapped more easily, and can age faster than other areas of the skin.”
The first step is The Satin Lips® Lip Mask which contains miniature beads that gently exfoliate dead surface skin cells that cause the lips to appear dull and lifeless. The second step is The Satin Lips® Lip Balm which Wendy states, “contains a special complex of ingredients, including vitamin A and E derivatives and Ceramide 2, to help moisturize dry and rough lips. The balm moisturizes the lips for at least six hours, while providing and invisible barrier to keep the lips hydrated.”
And the icing on the cake is – the set comes in three new exciting flavors; vanilla, vanilla mint and vanilla berry. Trust me on this my fellow fashionistas, I wouldn’t steer you wrong.

Until next time – love, peace and fashion! : )
