Lips & Neck Care

I had learned from my girlfriend that how important to take care of our skin thoughtfully when I was young. I could only afford some essential products due to my little budget; wash gel, face cream and body lotion. I had realized that makeup remover and eye cream were also mattering until I got some skin problems after turned 35. “It is too late to learn from my own experience”.

There are some parts of skin care that we usually ignore, for example, neck and lips. Having “healthy and smooth lips” and “fine skin texture neck” make women look energetic and young. In this article, I would like to share some methods of my lips and neck care routines. Moreover, to share with you about some particular products that after trying.

在非常年輕的時候從女朋友身上學會了肌膚保養的重要性,但是因為預算不多,只能先把購買保養品的重點放在臉上與身體肌膚,洗面乳、面霜以及身體乳液是化妝台面上固定出現的瓶罐。但是對於卸妝、眼霜等其實也非常重要的投資卻都忽略了,之後引起的問題是等到三十五歲之後肌膚慢慢出現顯老症狀才讓我瞭解「千金難買早知道」的重要性;女子們千萬不要用自己的寶貴肌膚來測試這句話的真實性呢。

不過儘管擁有保養習慣的人,也往往忽略了雙唇以及脖子這兩個部位的確切保養。擁有「健康滋潤的雙唇」以及「緊致的頸部肌膚」的確讓女人看來更有活力、健康,更顯年輕。這篇文章以自己的保養經驗分享照顧雙唇以及頸部肌膚的手法,還有前陣子入手在使用過後也放心推薦的保養品。

I do take care of my body skin and use body lotion after the shower. I also do not forget about my face skin care; however, I ignored my neck part in between. I had just realized I gained some wrinkles on my neck; I was shocked. Since then, I muster all my efforts on the neck issue. Here are some tips are my daily routine as below.

  • Do not forget to apply the foundation to the neck part, especially when you wear V-neck or low collar tops. Tap it slightly and make your neck glow as your face.
  • Clean your neck thoroughly as how you clean your face. I also use my scrubbing gel on my neck part to make sure that I do the process completely.
  • After the shower or face washing, what I apply on my face, I do the same to my neck. Now, I even add the special neck cream to strengthen the effect.

I ordered the 3LAB Perfect Neck Cream in last November; I just started to use it last December. In the beginning, I only applied it in the evening, but now I use it twice a day, in the morning and evening to keep the skin hydrating. It is an important step for anti-aging and slows down the signs of aging. In a word, treat your neck as how you treat your face; in a good way. Not only the throat in the front part but also the breast and the neck area.

在過去,我的確好好照顧了身體肌膚,每天洗澡後也都確實地抹上身體乳液;臉部的保養雖然不到周全的程度卻也有基本的護膚手續,不過就在身體與臉部之間的頸部肌膚卻讓我斷層地忽略了。一直到大約兩年多前,那時候頭髮正好在肩上長度,某些角度的照片中竟然發現自己開始有了明顯的脖紋,這讓我有所警惕,於是才卯足全力加強頸部保養。大概有以下幾個重點:

  • 化妝時別忘了將底妝產品延伸至頸部,如果穿深V領或是低領的上衣,那麼就把會露出來的胸前部位皮膚都輕輕地刷上粉底,再以密粉定妝。
  • 卸妝時,當然也別忘了頸部的徹底清潔。同時,在臉部去角質同時,也會把角質霜延伸至脖子部分,由胸口至下巴方向畫線提拉。
  • 化妝水、面霜等也不漏了頸部肌膚。以前保養脖頸部位都是以手上擦完臉剩下的乳液順便塗抹脖子,其實還是不夠;現在會特地再沾取適量頸霜來加強。不管是洗完臉或是洗完澡,一定會在脖子部位拍上化妝水,然後再擦上面霜;尤其是晚上睡覺前再拍上一層比較厚的特效頸霜達到保濕效果。

3LAB這罐頸霜是入冬之後購入,但是一直等到去年十二月初從台灣回到德國之後才開始使用。本來只在晚上加入保養的手續中,現在早上起床後不管有沒有化妝,都會先塗上一層,達到深層保濕的效果。保濕做的好,才能減緩細紋增加的速度。這罐保濕頸霜含有抗衰老成分,提供熟零肌膚必需的營養素和抗氧化劑。希望藉由這罐特別的頸霜來改善頸部肌膚的質地,減少像是雞脖子般顯老的老化徵狀,讓膚質看來更加細緻。

總而言之,把脖子當成臉的一部份來保養就對了。塗抹乳液的範圍不是只有頸部前方,我會加強至胸口、還有後背處,尤其是耳朵下方的後頸部位,一不小心就會有深深的脖紋呢。

Take good care of your lips is as important as how you take care of your face. Many friends have the dry lips problem, especially in the cold days. Actually, there are some easy steps to keep your lips hydrating and soft.

Clean your lips correctly. The day when I wear makeup, I follow a particular routine to remove the foundation and colors on my face, especially pay attention to the eyes and lips. The days without makeup, I will do a gentle massage on my skin with the cleansing milk as well as on the lips. Girls think that it is not necessary to clean lips when not wearing lipstick. There are some lip balms have a slight color to let your lips glowing; do not forget to remove the color.

Scrub your lips. After the shower, I apply the vaseline to my lips and swipe it away with Cotton swabs, at the same time to do a massage to soften the skin. I also do this step before I use the lipstick; it lasts the color longer.

Hydrating. Some do not like lip balms and feel uncomfortable with it on the lips. There are many beauty brands create light and Hydrating lip creams or lip blams for people who have the issue. Or there is another easier way, do a massage with your finger after applying the lip balm on your lips. Firstly, it makes the lip balm works better; second, your lips don’t look glowing.

I always have a Lip balm in my cosmetic bag with me; moreover, some spots ar home where I spend time, such as on my working desk, in the bathroom and beside my bed. The 3LAB Perfect Lips is transparent, and the texture is so fine. It offers a high Hydrating effect and reduces the wrinkles on the lips. I use it in the evening as a sleep lip blam. The 3LAB healthy Glow Lip Blam offers not only the same Hydrating but also add a slight of pink touch to let our lips look healthy and glow; I bring it with me on the way. Highly recommended.

唇部保養與臉部肌膚保養具有同樣的重要性,身旁有許多朋友(不分男女)常會有雙唇乾裂的情況,到了冬天更是嚴重,其實只要在生活中適量地塗抹合用的潤唇膏就可以避免這種情況發生。以下,與你分享我的雙唇保養步驟。

  • 卸妝:如果這天有化妝,那麼一定按照絕不馬虎的卸妝程序卸除彩妝與污垢;唇妝眼妝部分則以卸妝油卸除基本色彩之後,再以唇眼卸妝乳液加強清潔效果。如果沒有化妝,便只用一般的卸妝乳以按摩手法清潔肌膚,同時也不忘了雙唇的輕微按摩。許多女生以為沒有擦有顏色的唇膏就不需要卸唇妝,其實許多潤純膏帶有潤唇顏色配方,也不可以忽略了。
  • 去角質:每天洗完澡後,我會塗抹一層凡士林在雙唇上,以扁平設計的棉花棒以畫小圓的方式按摩唇面,然後再以乾淨的棉花棒將凡士林抹除,就可以溫和地達到去角質的作用。在上有顏色的唇膏或是唇蜜之前,也會以相同的步驟去角質,唇膏顏色會更服貼、持久。
  • 保濕:很多人不喜歡潤唇膏黏黏的質地,其實現在有許多品牌都已經設計出質地輕薄帶有足夠滋潤配方的護唇膏。(延伸閱讀:Good morning beauty routine)。如果還是不習慣,那麼就在塗抹護唇膏之後再以指腹在雙唇上按摩,這樣不但可以達到更好的滋潤效果,也可以少去油膩膩的觸感。

護唇膏是我隨身化妝包裡絕對少不了的必備品,不只如此,在浴室、寢室、工作桌旁都有隻護唇膏讓我隨手可得;這或許有點太誇張,不過雙唇乾裂的情況卻很少發生。3LAB Perfect Lips(軟管狀)是透明、質地細緻的膏狀潤唇液,具有持永的保濕度可以撫平細紋,在睡前使用可以達到更好的滋潤效果;用量省,大約半顆紅豆大小的用量已足夠。Healthy Glow Lip Balm除了同樣保濕滋潤外,還帶有粉紅色的潤色效果,所以放在隨身化妝包裡在外出時使用。我這個護唇膏魔人鑑定過的滋潤度值得讓你參考唷。
