For the first time in forever, I put on heels AND a dress to leave my house.
I know! I can’t even remember the last time I did that when it didn’t involve some kind of event, but I did it yesterday before going to the dentist, because I was actually feeling kinda feisty and, well…kinda cute, which never happens to me prior to leaving for the dentist.
To make a long story even longer, I did some yoga (a 10-minute flow; that’s the routine down below) before leaving for the appointment, and that just made me feel a little better and less anxious than usual — actually, almost enthusiastic (!) about seeing the dentist.
Anyway, feeling really good about myself, I put on my dress, my heels, got in the car, got on the freeway, and that’s when I realized that my knees and shins were hella dry.
(Don’t ask me why I realized this on the freeway.)
I totally forgot to put on lotion before leaving the house…
I know! When you don’t wear a dress in forever and you’re out of practice, you forget these things.
Then I remembered that I recently tossed the “emergency” lotion I usually keep in my car because it expired, so I didn’t have anything to moisturize myself with other than nude lipsticks and a Clinique Superbalm Lip Balm.
I thought, “Hmm… The Superbalm would be shiny, but it might work,” so when I got to the dentist’s office, I squeezed out a generous amount, and slathered it all over my knees and shins.
(I tried to warm it up first, though, by rubbing it between my fingers and palms.)
Lo and behold, it totally worked! So there’s a beauty hack for ya. Try your lip balm if you’re ever stuck somewhere with dry skin and don’t have any lotion.
On that note, today’s beauty (and otherwise) reading…
I adore Hindash’s work and can’t wait to try this!
You know how much I love her, but I love her even more because she says the words, “flute backstory,” in this video.

Best Ted Talk I watched this week
I did this workout just the other day! Super challenging, but I felt great at the end of it.
I’ve been doing this 10-minute yoga flow after workouts for my upper back, and it has helped with the wonkiness a lot.
Now I’m off to go take the coywolf to a local Easter egg hunt. Have a great Saturday and a happy (early) Easter.
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
