Happy Thursday!
We all get those days where we wake up, and we don’t feel the best, or think we look the best. You could’ve had a great night out, and drank too much wine, or going through major hormonal issues, and feel you are having severe breakouts. Well guess what? It’s all normal. We have all been through it one time or another, and I have some of the BEST beauty hacks that you will love. The best bet when going out, or you know you are going out, is make sure to eat before you go, and drink one glass of water between your glasses of wine, or your preferred drink. This helps majorly with dehydration. Dehydration causes the skin to look drab, and lose color. If you feel you have that Hangover face- try using a gel moisturizer on your face after putting in the fridge for at least 30 minutes. This will reduce your eye puffiness, and reduce the redness. A great one to try is the garnier moisture bomb.
Going out that night? The best way to prep skin is to use sheet masks. They sell great ones at sephora.These will instantly bring a glow to your skin like no other. Are you having severe breakouts due to hormones? Well my best advice is to dab Differin gel onto your breakouts. It will instantly dry your skin out, and it will be back to new in no time. Remember to always keep your skin hydrated by drinking lots of water, and try to avoid using different brands of skin care products. It can really hurt your skin.

Oxygen Facials are the next big trend in skincare, and when you hear the benefits, you’ll see why. Who doesn’t want super soft skin these days? We live in a very polluted world and our skin can turn dull and look dehydrated. That’s why I live for my oxygen facials monthly. I have seen amazing results by going in once a month and getting this type of facial. The way your skin feels afterwards is amazing. If you have never tried one, here is the time to find out how amazing they are. Here are some great benefits:

  • They moisturize and help with the Glow.- Oxygen facials offer deep penetrating benefits that work their way deep into the skin. They help restore the PH levels in your skin, and help with the radiance. They also help prepare against sun damage. We raise our risks of sun damage every day when heading outdoors. Its always best everyday to wear a high SPF.
  • It increases circulation for a natural blush look- When getting an oxygen facial, it removes the impurities from the skin that lie deep within. The impurities are removed with fresh oxygen and boy does it feel great. You will walk out and have a natural glow to your cheeks. 
  • Helps with Blemish-Free Skin- Oxygen facials detoxifies the skin against the toxins and the every day stress that we incur. Everyday when we do our activities, the stress pollution hits our skin like no other. The oxygen helps with acne marks, sun spots, and age spots which increase as we age. These are weaknesses in the skin that improve with certain amounts of oxygen.

The next time you plan your day at the spa, or decide that you want to get a facial, try to opt for the Oxygen Facial. Your Skin will be glad you did!

We live in a world today where skin pollution is everywhere. It can be the sun, products that we use, the food we eat, and in the air generally. As you know , aging is happening to us everyday. A great deal of the signs we see from aging is from skin pollution itself. It gets in our pores, over all it can cause the skin to rebel in ways we do not like. I started recently using the BEST anti -pollution product after relentlessly trying everything under the sun. I finally found a product that I absolutely love, and I think you would too. The Elizabeth Arden PREVAGE City smart SPF 50 is amazing. I love it because it is lightweight, and full of antioxidants. I have very sensitive skin, so I really have to watch what I put on it. It not only protects your skin from those pesky rays, and pollution, but also helps strengthen your skin too. We all need that as we age. This item is full of many antioxidants that helps fight aging. One of the first things you need to be doing every day is applying a good sun screen that helps fight against pollution. If you are a person with sensitive skin also, you may like this. If you have tried this and it isn’t your cup of tea, well then find something that is full of pollution fighters, and has a high SPF rating. It doesn’t matter if it seems cloudy out, sunscreen is just as important as what you put in your mouth . Melanoma is on the rise, and a good product with good protection sustainability is vital. Anti-skin pollution products and sunscreen go hand in hand for beautiful skin.  There are many ways you can age in number , but still have flawless, gorgeous , healthy skin as the years go by.

We all know how important collagen is for our skin. As we age, we lose collagen in our skin , which causes the elasticity to decrease. This can cause wrinkles, loose skin, and much more. One way we can increase our collagen is by taking a good supplement. Many of us can get busy, and it can be difficult to make sure to get your daily dose of collagen.

One of the great things about my job is the amazing partnerships I’ve made as well as the friendships I’ve made. I always love when I hear from a brand and they want to send me amazing products. I had the amazing experience recently of teaming up with http://www.siobeauty.com. I have to say I was blown away at the products and the results. One thing with aging, and being in the sun , is that our chests can take a hit on the aging and wrinkles. NO one likes it, and now there is something that helps it. Siobeauty has chest patches that you stick on your décolleté, and through the night works on minimizing those wrinkles and creping , leaving you waking up to an amazing new chest. I have to say I was thrilled with the results. The set comes with two patches ( which can be worn up to 15 times each). Then the cleansing pads and rejuvenation serum. I know some of you may have seen these on HSN. I will continue to use these patches forever. Many women worry so much about the aging face, but I have seen so many women in their 40s that may have these young looking faces due to fillers and such , but it doesn’t look good when you see their chests or even hands for that matter. The skin is one, so taking care of every part is essential. One important task of using the patches is to make sure the chest area is super clean before applying. A nice decollete is always sexy! Agree?
