As we start to see the winter months slowly fading away—this is right about the time when some of us seek out new skincare and haircare products to help repair the damage from the cold temperatures. I also know for a fact that as the seasons start to transition, both hair and skin can experience a bit of a freak out towards the changes. It certainly isn’t always easy picking out the products you may need to help with your beauty concerns, but you got to start off somewhere.
Perhaps I’ve been living under a rock, but I’ve only recently heard about hyaluronic acid in skincare. I’ve done a bit of research and with the benefits such as renewed skin and it’s capability of locking high contents of moisture; I just had to take advantage of the situation and try out the Cougar Hyaluronic Acid Eye Serum. A matter of fact, not only was this my first time trying out hyaluronic acid but also an eye serum. My under eye area has never been that big of an issue, however if I can keep it this way, or at least from aging anytime soon, I don’t see any harm in taking care of business now. I absolutely love this serum so much that I even spread it a little further out from my eye area onto the tops of my cheeks for added benefits. The most noticeable difference is that I wake up without looking tired even when I don’t get a good full nights rest.
For skin impurities
Although in the last few years sheet masks have gained it’s well deserved and heightened popularity (at least in the western world), I still love a good clay mask for my pampering me time. The Cougar Wild Caviar Purifying Face Mask however has been a new experience for me; never have a tried out a facial masks like this. Wild caviar, seaweed, and fish roe are well known factors in skin’s rejuvenation and are perfect when it comes down to anti-aging since they are all high in Amino Acids, and Vitamin’s A, D, B1/2/6. The Wild Caviar mask is actually targeted towards drier skin types, and although I’m the total opposite of that it has helped to balance out my skin’s texture. Because it is such a highly concentrated masks I think once a week is all you need when you have oily skin; and as for dry skin, I see this being a favourite to use at least twice or three times a week for the masks to be truly effective with noticeable results.
Styling without harm
Sometimes hair can be just as complicated as your skin. In the last year I’ve been really consistent with keeping all my haircare products vegan, and free from paraben, sulfate, and gluten since my hair has always had unpleasant reactions from these. I’m new to this brand, but the Pai-Shau Biphasic Infusion has been the missing piece to my very simple and cruelty-free haircare routine. After many years of constantly colouring and using a straightening iron on my hair, my ends are still paying for the damage. Pai-Shau’s Signature Tea Complex helps to make hair super smooth, silky, and hold in moisture without loosing any volume. One of the coolest things about the Biphasic Infusion is that the two binary products are activated when you shake the bottle. Aside from the fact that this smells exactly what it’s like to die and go to heaven, I love how the product doesn’t just sit on my hair and really does penetrate in deeply making my naturally very wavy hair frizz-free and better defined.
