Lipstick: A Beauty Essential




We have been wearing lipstick for a long, long time. Research has shown that “[a]ncient Sumerian men and women were possibly the first to invent and wear lipstick, about 5,000 years ago.” Our love affair with lipstick continues. In the United States alone, 133.54 million used lipstick and lip gloss in 2016. The U. S. population of those 18 years old and older in 2015 was 247.73 million. So, about 54% of this population wore lipstick or lip gloss! Statista projected more people will do so through the year 2020.

Ah! Sleep, Beauty 💤 💤 💤 

Sleep is important for you–inside and out. You might think you’re off the clock when it comes to your beauty routine while you sleep, but your slumber hours play an important role in how you look. 

According to WebMD:

“When it comes to your beauty routine, sleep may be the closest thing there is to a fountain of youth. Your body repairs itself and recovers while you snooze, and that leads to a long list of benefits for your looks. The key is to get enough shut-eye — 7 to 9 quality hours each night.

“If you’re getting fewer than 6 hours, it’s likely affecting your appearance, says Michael Breus, PhD, a board-certified sleep specialist. Start getting 1 to 3 more hours of Zzz’s, and you could see some improvement in as little as a day. Keep it up, and ‘within 2 to 3 weeks, people will notice that you’re sleeping better by the way you look,’ Breus says.”

Good night and good sleeping.

Supplies to prepare for your beauty sleep include NutriEffect creams, bathsets, bathoils, and more–are at my online Avon store.
