Umbrella in the Nude

December 19, 2015

Stay Dry with an Umbrella in the Nude

Winter is here and the rain is going to make its debut any day now. The umbrella is something that seems to get forgotten as a fashion accessory and thought of more as a functional item. Well, we love that it can serve as both! This way, you are always looking your best, rain or shine.

While picking a moisturizer it is important to consider your skin type and weather. “Most patients will say they have sensitive skin,” states New York cosmetic dermatologist Dr. Paul Jarrod Frank. The best way to determine your skin type is to examine it at the end of the day in your T-Zone. Dr. Frank also states it is best to apply a moisturizer after using a toner on your skin. Tips.... Use a lotion if you have oily skin and a creme if you have dry skin. See our picks below!

“I feel like a lot of designers… are so full of themselves they don’t even care to find out what the consumer is feeling. For me it’s the opposite, I have a connect with the audience. My ultimate goal is for the person wearing my garment to feel good in it. I design clothes for weddings and there were times when people looked down on it, but I have always felt like I am a part of such an important day in someone’s life, and they will remember that outfit more than anything else.” - Manish Malhotra
