Valencia 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. 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 Valentia Clear Lift Revitalizing Serum. It is a anti-wrinkle serum that brightens, hydrates and renews skin texture. The Revitalizing 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. It minimizes fine lines as well as increases skin’s natural thickness, for healthier looking skin. The Clear Lift Revitalizing Serum corrects the appearance of acne scars, unwanted pigmentation, and corrects skin discoloration. It also increases skin oxygen consumption to detoxify and boost antioxidant defense. 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? The Valentia products are linked below. Hope you enjoy!

Valentia Ultra Plumping Hydration Mask

<a href=”http://www.tomoson.com/?code=TOPa08c8a9dc6615bf52d94be4af9ab4cb2″ rel=”nofollow”><img style=”display: none” src=”http://www.tomoson.com/images/front/pixel.png” /></a>
Lately I have been struggling with breakouts so I am always looking for good skin care. My skin is combination, meaning that it is dry in some areas and normal in others. To fix the dry skin I have tried many different moisturizers, some have worked, some have not. What I really found that works are hydration/ moisture mask. One that I have been using lately and really like is the Valentia Ultra Plumping Hydration Mask, which can be found here . I have tried many Valentia productions and I have not found one I did not like. I will be doing a review on more of their products soon.

The Valentia Ultra Plumping Hydration Mask secures moisture while reducing fine lines and wrinkles. It is easy to apply and only needs to stay on for 15-20 mins. I have been using it for almost 2 weeks and I can really tell a difference in my skin. It is a lot brighter and smoother. I have experience less dry spots, which is great during the winter months. The mask has many anti-aging ingredients, such as Organic Sea Buckthorn and Rosehip Seed oils. As well as Japanese Green Tea and Aloe Vera. Many of these work to prevent blemishes, wrinkles, dryness and support skin elasticity. 
I would recommend the Valentia Ultra Plumping Hydration Mask. Their products are all alcohol and paraben free, cruelty free to animals, and affordable. Below I have linked some Valentia products. If you try them come back and please let me know how you liked them.

Advanced Bioscience Phytoceramides + Vitamin C Serum Review (Skincare)

So I am always on the look out for new skincare. As I get older I know I should take care of my skin more. I have pretty sensitive skin. I am allergic to the sun (I breakout in hives….no fun!), I have eczema, and I am sensitive to a lot of fragrance. I have tried a lot of serums and vitamins in the past. I usually do pretty good with vitamins, not so much with serums.

My skin on my face just doesn’t really like serums (I have tried others and gotten the same results). What happens is that it breaks out in small bumps and when I stop using it they go away. Same thing happened with the Vitamin C Serum Advanced. But….there is always a but, I did use the serum on my eczema (which is on my leg) and it has helped start the process of clearing it up. For this I do recommend this product. You may have better luck with it for your face. You can find it here. The serum and vitamins come in a affordable bundle both having all natural phytoceramides extract, which strengthens collagen, reduces wrinkles, and helps rejuvenate skin cells. The vitamins give you some daily nutrients that is needed (A,C,D,&E), but it not the full daily percent you need so make sure you are adding more into your diet. All in all the vitamins seem to be working good.  I would recommend this product even though the serum didn’t work for my face (I knew going into it that it probably won’t), but it has gotten many great reviews that you can see here. If you end up trying it out let me know how it worked for you.
