NIVEA BRIGHTENING WIPES
The vulcanizing shop type of summer weather of the Middle East usually wreaks havoc on all skin types. If yours is dry, it gets even drier. If it’s oily, your face just turns into an oil spill. Thankfully, we have Nivea Brightening Wipes for those quick, mid-day hilamos. This is unique amongst wipes, as it has a sorta rough side that’s great for exfoliation. It’s like a facial that you can do anytime and anywhere.
EVIAN FACIAL SPRAY
The scientific term is “Brumisateur.” Try saying that. You’ll instantly turn into Mariah Carey. What this is, basically, is expensive water in a can. Why not just splash water on your face in the rest room, you ask? Well, because… Evian, man. Not only is it great for keeping your face hydrated, it also works swimmingly well for setting your make-up and keeping it in place.
BONNE SPA MILK SALT
One of life’s greatest joys is feeling how ridiculously buttery your skin is after a body scrub session. But you don’t really have to go to a spa to experience such swankiness. You can do it in the comfort of your own banyo with Bonne Spa Milk Salt. Just remember not to scrub too hard or for too long, lest you end up “flayed” instead of “fleeky.”
LUSH LIP SCRUBS
Matte lipsticks are all the rage nowadays, but nothing’s more alarming (and hilarious) than violently pink puckers that look as dry as the deserts of Ras Al Khaima. Remember: scrub your lips, moisturize, and then apply the lipstick. We at #TeamIllustrado are huge fans of the Lush Lip Scrubs. They keep your lips soft and bubblegummy, plus they smell good enough to eat!
Beauty is not just what you put on your skin; it’s also about what you put in your body. Wheatgrass juice has over 100 of the elements needed by man. If this doesn’t give you superpowers, nothing will. A shot of this a couple of times a week would be great for keeping your body in top form.
