New Year, New Skincare Routine

New Year, New Skincare Routine! One of my New Year’s Resolutions is to take better care of my skin. Meaning use great products, protect it from the sun’s harmful rays, not using damaging chemicals that can dry out my skin, and removing my makeup every night before bed. Sounds easy enough, right? It is, if you find a skincare system that you love! This year I plan on trying multiple skincare products at different price points to find what my skin really loves.

First up is the Elemis Biotec X Foreo Energizing Skincare System. I love the Elemis line. I have tried multiple other products and have not been disappointed. My favorite in this skincare system is the night cream and the Luna Play. Check out my YouTube video below or here on how to use the products and why these two are my favorites.

Winter Skin Care with Joanna Vargas

Taking care of you skin is extremely important, especially in the winter. This is why I love pampering myself with a facial. While I was in NYC last week I had the privilege to experience a Triple Crown facial from the Joanna Vargas Salon. This 60 minute facial includes microdermabrasion, mircocurrent and oxygen infused therapy to help hydrate, lift and tone loose skin, as well as, combat fine lines and wrinkles. 
My personal skin complaint is dryness, so the Triple Crown facial was just what it desired. It left my skin feeling rejuvenated, youthful and moisturized. I felt refreshed and did not even want to apply makeup after the session because my skin looked so great. I suggest you try it!
If you are in the NYC or LA area definitely visit the Joanna Vargas Salon. They offer multiple treatments, such a the Triple Crown facial, power peel, full body microdermabrasion and many more (which can be found here), just to name a few. The staff in the NYC office were wonderful. If you have any questions about scheduling talk to Kimberly and if you are interested in the Triple Crown facial request Elizabeth. 
Some of my favorite products that I use to keep my skin looking youth after a facial are the hydrating cream and the exfoliating mask. What are some of your ride or die skincare products for the winter time? Shop mine below and check out all her products here.

Winter Skin Care

    My skin has been breaking out tremendously so I decided to do something about it. I have tried many skincare products. Some work some don’t. Lately I have been using a variety of products and I think I have finally figured out a skincare routine that works for my face.

Twice a week I give myself my own sort spa facial.  After I cleanse my face I use the Valentia External Youth Exfoliating Scrub, which can be found here . This scrub removes dead skin as well as, softens and brightens the skin. It is one of my favorite products and works really well. After that I use the Valentia Skin Detoxifying Clay Mask. This mask pulls out all the impurities in your face, reduces pore size, and tightens skins. I have tried a few clay mask and I like this one the best. It stays on for 10-20 minutes and leaves your skin feeling firm and clean. It made my pimple disappear by the next morning. You can find the mask here. In the winter when I am really feeling dry I follow the detox mask up with the Valentia Ultra Plumping Hydration Mask. I usually only do this once a week. This mask secures moisture, boost collagen, and reduces fine lines and wrinkles. Not to leave out that your skin feels extra healthy and glowing afterwards. You can find the hydration mask here .  I finish my facial with the Valentia True Glow Eye Cream. It nourishes and hydrates the skin around your eye area which reduces wrinkles and tightens skin. Lets face it as we all get older we need this. The eye cream can be found here . Then lastly I add a serum. The one I been using lately and love is the Naturél Commodity Vitamin C Super Youth Serum. It is a anti-wrinkle serum that brightens, hydrates and adds collagen.  The vitamin C serum can be found here.  It gives your skin an added layer of protection from the sun, and drying wind, as well as helps keep the moisture in. You should always add a serum to your skin before adding your favorite moisturizer to finish off your facial. What is your skincare routine and some of your favorite products?
