Hat Head

It’s time to bundle up, in other words, time to fight hat head. Whether topping off with a cashmere beanie, a ski helmet or a wide brimmed chapeaux, it’s all about preventing hat head. There are tricks to minimizing hat head, but it can’t always be prevented. There are usually two camps – take control and submit – so pick a side. Take control and wear a ponytail. If you’ve perspired while running to catch the train or showing off on the slopes, hair will take on a whole new life. Slicking it back into a ponytail is a great way to take control and minimize or hide the wrath of the hat.

Moisturizing Your Skin

A lot of people think that moisturizing is optional, especially if they have oily skin. However, this is not the case. If you have oily skin then this is no reason not to moisturize, you should just make sure that you’re using a moisturizer that doesn’t contain any oil – for example Active Moist by Dermalogica. It is a lightweight, oil-free lotion for daily moisture protection that actively combats surface dehydration while smoothing the skin’s surface with botanical extracts. Moisturizers are great for all skin types because they replenish essential moisture levels and keep the skin feeling smooth and soft while also reducing dryness, irritation and tightness. They can also be used to help combat aging.

Youngblood Mineral Makeup

Everyone hears that mineral makeup is “good” for you, but what exactly makes it different from other types of makeup?

At Xhale Salon-Spa, we are in love with Youngblood mineral makeup! Youngblood mineral makeup is unlike traditional makeup, which is usually filled with harmful chemical-based additives. Mineral makeup also naturally provides the wearer with sun protection, they also do not support the growth of bacteria, which poses a lower risk for allergic reaction. Because mineral makeup is so gentle, it is ideal to use if you have problem skin (acne, rosacea) or while recovering from medical procedures. There are even more benefits to Youngblood then how good it is for your skin. Youngblood offers a full range of products from liquid foundation to vibrant eyeliners and crème blushes; they also have a rainbow of colors ranging from basic neutrals to electric blue to satisfy all your color cravings! Making the switch to Youngblood is made even easier since you can rest easy knowing they are a vegan brand that does not do any testing on animals. But you’ll really be hooked for life when you see and feel the difference Youngblood makes on your skin! Come and get your Youngblood Mineral Makeup at Xhale.
