So let’s get back to beauty. To be honest, when it comes to this subject I feel a bit out of my element. As I told Sabrina, I have been using a lot of the same makeup colors + products since middle school and don’t branch out too often. Sabrina was able to teach me some easy techniques and answered a few beauty questions I had along the way. Check out what she had to say below:

1. WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO KEEP YOUR SKIN HYDRATED DURING WINTER?
The best way to keep your skin hydrated is to drink plenty of water. If you need more than that, I recommend using a great serum such as Hydra Cellulaire Serum from Guinot. It leaves skin soft, radiant, and smooth.

2. IS IT IMPORTANT TO CHANGE UP YOUR MOISTURIZER SEASONALLY? ARE THERE ANY SPECIFIC ONES YOU RECOMMEND?
Changing up your moisturizer is essential because your skin needs different treatments at different times of the year. During this winter season, our skin is dry so nourish it with a heavier moisturizer and don’t forget to apply SPF. Even though you might not see the sun, it’s best to cover and protect our skin from sun damage.

3. HOW OFTEN SHOULD YOU EXFOLIATE YOUR FACE?
Exfoliation during winter months can be done 2 times a week. A simple scrub I like to create consists of 2 tablespoons of sugar and 1 teaspoon of coconut oil {which has many healing properties}. This is a great softening exfoliation that can leave the skin radiant and smooth.

4. WHAT’S A GOOD METHOD FOR MASKING TIRED, PUFFY EYES?
To get rid of puffy eyes, I like to use a used green tea bag. I keep them in the fridge so they are chilled. Green tea is filled with antioxidants and the chilled bags help soothe and firm tired eyes.

5. WHAT ARE 3 BEAUTY PRODUCTS YOU DON’T LEAVE HOME WITHOUT?
I am addicted to my Beauty Babe lip glosses! They have collagen peptides which plump and soften lines on the lips naturally. I also love my Beauty Babe trio concealer, which conceals + covers so I feel like myself without feeling heavy. Lastly, my Beauty Babe dual finishing powder to minimize my pores and leave my skin selfie ready {just in case}.

6. WHAT ARE SOME BEAUTY TRENDS YOU ARE SEEING FOR SPRING?
Some trends for spring include fabulous dewy skin with a splash of color. Also bold lashes are a must. Some of my favorite Beauty Babe products that can help you get this look include: Beauty Babe cream blush {in flushed}, Beauty Babe curling mascara {in blackest black}, and Beauty Babe gloss {in pastel nude}.
