    • HAPPY NEW YEAR, Beauty Queens!  

      Now that winter has arrived, is your skin feeling dry, dehydrated, flaky, rough or inflamed?  Perhaps your skin is thirsty for a bit more hydration & rich moisture to promote smoother, healthier looking skin? Possibly the winter cold months have caused your skin to have an excess of dead dry skin that are in desperate need to exfoliate and remove with a quality scrub? Whatever skin care concerns that you have, here are a few winter tips and tricks to promote healthy, smoother, vibrant skin:

      EXFOLIATE - A facial scrub is necessary to use to remove all excess dead skin.  Depending on your skin type, it is best to exfoliate your face at least 1-2 weekly.
      Keep in mind, our body needs exfoliated, as well, so be sure to use a shower scrub 1-2 times weekly to promote skin as smooth as a babies bottom!  

      1.  Cosmedicine:  Medi-morphosis Self Adjusting Exfoliator - Automatically eliminates the potential for overdoing the exfoliation process (shuts off when uniform smoothness, brightness, and luminosity are achieved)-Accelerates the release of cellular debris, roughness, dullness, and skin damage without the risk of irritation, redness, and sensitivity.

      2.  Mary Kay:  Time Wise Microdermabrasion Set - Fight fine lines, refine pores and achieve beautifully smooth skin immediately with this simple, two-step set. Step 1: Refine uses the same aluminum oxide crystals that dermatologists use to exfoliate and reveal your most radiant skin. Step 2: Replenish goes beyond moisturizing and actually nourishes your skin with powerful antioxidants to make it feel soothed and smoothed instantly.  

      HYDRATION - Hydrating and moisturizing your skin is essential this winter to promote smoother, silkier, younger & beautiful looking skin.  All skin types need hydrated, but depending on the skin type, you will have to find a product best suited to meet your specific skin care needs. Our body needs hydrated, especially in the winter.  I prefer to use a cream versus a lotion in the winter because a cream is more hydrating to penetrate the skin.

      1.  Avon: ANEW RETROACTIVE+ Youth Extending Cream SPF 25 -  Repair micro-damage today, see a youthful tomorrow. Inspired by award-winning research, this proactive Youth Extending Cream is formulated to: Fight micro-damage better than before- invisible damage of the cellular level that can lead to visible signs of aging. Helps shrink the lines and pores before they can become larger. Boost skin’s most powerful defense system - each cream is formulated to help protect skin against future micro-damage and help make it more resistant to future signs of aging.  

      2.  Arbonne:  Re9 kit-Botanical Skin Care - Protect, moisturize and visibly firm with Day Crème. Reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Makes young, beautiful skin a daily reality by delivering key RE9 elements that strengthen and firm while protecting against oxidative stress and exposure to the sun. (When I tried the Arbonne Corrective Eye Cream, I was simply astonished at the immediate results!  This eye cream is spectacular and I was very satisfied!)
