Glitter became an even bigger festival must-have this year, with bolder styles seen and application areas wider than ever before (#glitterboobs). When embracing glitter, either in a subtle makeup style or an all-out look, the correct skincare practises can avoid irritation.
As summer draws to a close the glitter is not necessarily being put away, and with party season around the corner, XO Balm has the guide on how to use without causing sensitivity.
XO Balm’s glitter guide for those with sensitive skin:
1. The best foundations
An oil based product is ideal for loose glitter application, and will ensure the skin underneath will be hydrated and nourished; natural balms are ideal. The olive and coconut oil blend in XO balm is ideal, while the natural beeswax will strengthen the skin, and ensure the glitter sticks to the desired areas.
2. Brush on, wipe off
For a smooth, even application, and to avoid overstressing skin don’t use fingers to apply. Instead use a clean powder brush to dust the glitter over the areas prepped with XO Balm. While glitter may last a day on our skin, it will last a lot longer once washed down the drain. Use plastic-free biodegradable glitters to conserve marine life.
3. Take care with removal
XO Balm is a natural multipurpose balm effective in soothing and relieving dryness, sensitive and irritated skin. XO Balm can be used for all areas of the face, body and hair to nourish and protect. Visit here to find free shipping on all orders.
