Environmental Factors That Can Damage The Skin
When traveling, we are exposing ourselves to tons of damaging elements, especially in a crowded airport. Aspects like dust, sweat, and even makeup can be damaging to the skin!

One product from Itcosmetics that will help me to wipe away all this nastiness is their Bye Bye Makeup Melting Balm Wipes, not only can you remove your makeup in just one wipe, they are also designed as a 3-in-1 Hydrating, Anti-Aging, Makeup-Removing Micellar Wipes! I love that they are portable, disposable and fragrance-free!

Moisturize When Traveling
When traveling we are often exposed to recycled & airconditioned air which can further dehydrate the skin, so keeping your skin hydrated is essential.

Therefore, you want to make sure that you are packing something like Itcosmetics moisturizing treatments. They have a few that can help to revive your skin and those tired, puffy looking eyes!  Ok and don’t forget to drink plenty of water to help rejuvenate your skin, your skin will thank you!

Plus, did you know that inactivity whether traveling on a plane or by car causes water retention, which can show up with puffiness under our eyes. This is another reason I pack this eye cream as it helps to make puffy looking eyes appear instantly more awake!I don't leave home without it!

That Memorial Day Glow

I am all for a glow; however, I am not one who is going to go in the sun without my SPF, so make sure to pack some SPF this Memorial Day weekend. Another thing to keep in mind is if you are flying that the change in altitude on a plane steals your glow, which makes for a dull, dry appearance.

Hence, another beauty item I packed is my Bye Bye Pores Bronzer Poreless Finish Airbrush Bronzer! IT’s your vacation in a compact! This bronzing finishing veil airbrushes the look of your pores while instantly adding sun-kissed warmth to your skin! Plus, it’s infused with coconut extract and comes in a universally flattering shade! So, no worries about orange looking skin, instead you will have a beautiful UVA free glow!

How Stress Can Impact Your Skin
Traveling creates the perfect storm for skin issues. Bad enough with all of the traffic on the road or if you're flying, flight delays which can cause anxiety.  If there is an increasing level of your stress hormones, it can increase redness (which the Bye Bye Redness Moisturizer helps with).  Stress can also enhance any inflammatory issues of the skin you may have, ultimately making you appear older!

So, what products did I pack to help with reviving my stressed skin?

First is my all-time favorite with Itcosmetics Bye Bye Pores Pressed Poreless Finish Airbrush Pressed Powder

This skin-perfecting finish will visually blur the appearance of pores and imperfections for a more youthful, airbrushed complexion.

Another must in my travel bag is Bye Bye Lines Serum! This is a lifesaver for me, as IT is an Anti-Aging Smoothing Miracle in a bottle! This weightless wonder serum not only improves skin texture and smoothness, but it also helps to boost radiance for your most youthful, healthy-looking results.

So, as you can see regardless of your travel plans, you can now say Bon Voyage to your skincare issues, by making sure to pack some of the ITcosemtics products I mentioned above; you and your skin will be thankful you did!

Tips For Getting Your Lips Summer Ready With Herpecin

Tips For Getting Yours Lips Summer Ready With Herpecin By Barbies Beauty Bits

 Contest Details Are At The Bottom Of The Page!

Pucker up baby; it is time to get your lips Summer Ready and Herpecin is here to help!

When people think of the change of seasons and beauty tips, most think of clothes, hair, tanning, makeup, but a lot forget about skincare and more so forget about the lips!

When the weather gets warmer, and the sun is out more, we need to be thinking of our lips.  And if the hot temperatures are not enough to punish your pout, the transition from the sultry heat to cool air conditioning can cause the lips to become dry and chapped as well!

For this post, I partnered up with Primp and Herpecin to share with you some tips to get your lips summer ready. So if you want to get a kick start for the summer, continue reading!

Tips to protecting your lips and treating sun blisters by Barbies Beauty Bits and Herpecin

Lip Protection
Our lips are more susceptible to the sun compared to other areas of our body. For one our lips do not have any sebaceous glands. These glands are the ones that keep the rest of the skin on our body moist. Hence the only source of moisture for our lips is salvia, thus the dryness and chapping!

Secondly, another thing to be aware of is that our lips do not have any melanin in them. Melanin is essential as this is the natural way that our body protects the skin from the dangerous UV rays, and because the lips do not have this protection, they are at risk to get blistered and sunburnt! Not what I call Summer Beauty!

So, what is a girl to do? Protect your pout with a product like Herpecin!

What The Heck Is Herpecin L
Now I know that the name may be throwing you off, but this product is just not for cold sores. It is a LIPtastic product- known as the consumer brand "jewel lip treatment” that can be used year-round as it protects your lips from cracking and is more hydrating than other therapies! My lips have been so dry lately, and this lip therapy is a must to help me get and keep my lips summer ready as it is uniquely formulated with dimethicone for protection, and sunscreens to help guard against the sun's harmful rays!

Sun Blisters
Yes, the elephant in the room, a cold sore, fever or sunblister, whatever you want to call it, but the fact is that 50-80% US adults have oral herpes. So for those of you who are looking for a product to help with those evil outbreaks as well as some great lip protection, Herpecin L is for you!  Not only does Herpicin provide protection and hydration, but it also gives instant relief without numbing or drying your sensitive pout!

Where To Purchase Herpecin
Herpecin L 30 Lip Protectant/Cold Sore & Sunscreen Lip Balm Stick can be purchased at your local Walmart! So while you are getting some sunblock, beach bag, beach hat and other beach essentials, don't forget to pick up some herpecin for yourself and some for the entire family!

Exfoliate Your Lips
Exfoliation is an essential step in proper skincare, and our lips are not any different. Exfoliating your lips helps to keep them looking and feeling luscious. However, when it comes to exfoliating your lips, you want to be careful as you do not want to cause any damage. The lips are delicate, so you will want to use a gentle exfoliant, and I prefer some DIY treatments to help, check them out below.
  • Honey and sugar lip scrub… Sugar is an effective natural exfoliant and honey has excellent antibacterial properties, full of antioxidants and is amazing for moisturizing and soothing the lips.

  • Use a toothbrush. Yes, I said toothbrush, but you want to be gentle. Therefore I recommend using a soft bristle brush. Just apply some petroleum jelly and with a clean, soft bristle toothbrush, gently brush your lips in a circular motion. 
Finish both above lip scrubs with a moisturizing treatment, like Herpecin.

Your Diet
You are what you eat is a true statement. Plus, chapped lips not only occur because of a lack of moisture but also a deficiency in vitamin B. Some foods to consider adding to your diet are those rich in riboflavin and don’t forget about those high in antioxidants that can help with antiaging!
  • Dark Green Vegetables
  • Berries
  • Nuts
  • Sweet Potatoes
  • Whole Grains
  • Fish

Stay Hydrated
Drinking plenty of water is essential, and I must be honest this is one area I am not great at as the task of drinking 13 glasses of water a day can be daunting.  While I am not dismissing the importance of drinking this many glasses, there are some other liquids you can consume. OR if you are like me, you can get some of your needed h20 intakes by adding some fruit like watermelon to your water.  Not only is watermelon great for hydration it also full of antioxidants such as lycopene, vitamin C and A which helps reduce those evil free radicals, hence slowing down the signs of aging.

Another great drink to consume is coconut water as it has a high PH, and not only does it hydrate the body, but also moisturizes the lips.

Don’t Lick Your Lips
Not only does this drive me nuts but licking your lips can cause them to become drier as you are basically putting the acids and bacteria in your mouth directly on your lips! Instead, apply some Herpecin!

So, there you have beauties! My top tips to get your smackers summer ready and in my case below camera ready! MUAH!
