Monday Beauty Tip #7: Long Lasting Perfume

Did you know that fragrance will last longer on a person with slightly oily skin? The moist skin holds the fragrance longer than dry skin.
So, if you’re struggling with dry winter skin and feel like your perfume goes away quickly, you can just put a bit of vaseline (olive oil or shea butter would work well too) on the points you plan to spray on and the scent will adhere better.

Another way to make perfume scents last longer is to apply lotion before applying your perfume. A lotion having the same scent is an excellent way to make your perfume last longer. But if you don’t have a matching lotion, apply an unscented lotion.

Also, learn where your pulse points are, this is where the blood vessels are closest to the skin giving off more heat and acting like mini fragrance pumps.. The three best pulse points to spray or dab your perfume onto are the ones on your neck, wrists and the back of your knees. If these spots are real moisturized they will hold the scent even better! :)
