The first thing anyone notices about us is usually our face. It may be our smile, the sparkle in our eye or even just the glow in our skin. Now as a woman in my early 30’s, I have noticed that the elasticity and glow of my skin are not what they were when I was in my 20’s or even from just a few years ago. Lucky for all of us, in this day in age there is a skin care product for EVERY skin type. Currently, my issue has been and is still currently Rosacea, which for me became apparent when I turned 30. I along with at least 16 million other Americans deal with this every day condition by trying to calm the redness & treat our skin to a good kind of moisture . The good part of having rosacea , if that actually exists, is that I now know more about skin care products then I thought I ever would. I understand that most products on the market have so many chemicals in them, that our skin reacts well at first but then if we don’t continue using them our skin loses its glow or even worse has an adverse reaction. My goal with my beauty regiment is to keep it simple, easy and make me feel like a million bucks walking out the door in 10 minutes or less. We all know life , no matter what path we have chosen, for me as a mom of 2 and full time PTA parent, my time in the morning is taken up by everyone but me. Those 5-10 mins are a crucial part of my daily routine and without them I don’t feel whole. To break down my regiment I have listed each product I use and where to find it online. Personally my favorite products are used by me in my daily morning & evening routines.
A) Facewash- SKIN SCRIPT Green Tea Citrus Antioxidant Cleanser with Grapefruit, Lemon & Yucca 6.5 oz ( $27) This product both cleans and tones all in one.
B) Moisture Mist- Laura Mercier Perfecting Water Moisture Mist 6.8oz One Spritz of this puts the moisture back in the skin to either start the day off right or end it feeling refreshed. ($38)
C) Cellular Rejuvenation Serum MFx ( by Melissa Fox) 1.0 fl oz ($98) This product is my secret weapon of keeping my glow. It plumps and smoothes the skin with lipofilling spheres.
D) Daytime ( IT Cosmetics CC+ Cream) 1.08 fl oz ($38) A Broad Spectrum 50+ SPF paired with Full Color Correcting Full Coverage Cream( great for the redness) and the Anti-Aging Hydrating Serum; Bed time (BT) Laura Mercier Flawless Skin Repair Creme 1.7 oz ( $98)
*** If I decide I don’t want to wear any coverage , like on the weekends or lounging, I use: Laura Mercier Flawless Skin Repair Oil – Free Day Lotion Broad Spectrum SPF 15 Sunscreen. ( ALL of my daytime lotions or regiments MUST have SPF!!!)
E) Under Eye Care (BT)- Laura Mercier Flawless Skin Repair Eye Serum 0.5 fl Oz ($83)
F) For my lips I use Neutrogena Lip Moisturizer ( $2.79) Can be found at any local drug store or grocery store.
My entire beauty regiment takes about 5 minutes and leaves me feeling refreshed every time. The products listed above, with the exception of the lip moisturizer have links directly connecting you to where you can purchase them.
Hope you enjoy the simple, beautiful and HAUTE beauty regiment
