Summer Anti-aging and Skin Care

  • Peter Thomas Roth Max Sheer All Day Moisture Defense Lotion with SPF 30-Sun protection is so important especially when you hit those mid-twenties. This is the first summer that I am actually going to sunscreen it up! This moisturizing sunscreen is great for me because I have oily skin and it doesn’t break me out. It also contains vitamins A & E so, you’re getting protection and antioxidants. You can get it at or at your nearest Ulta or Sephora. 
  • Purity 3 in 1 facial cleanser from philosophy- This gets my face SQUEAKY clean! I fell in love with it the first time I used it. I got it for $22 at Ulta which isn’t too bad because you do get a lot of product for your money. You can also save on makeup remover because this does the work for you. It works so well with my clarisonic. I feel like it really gets every last bit of my makeup off no matter how much I have had on that day.
  • Nerium AD Age-Defying Treatment- This is the priciest of the bunch but I will say that it’s worth it. I was skeptical at first because I have heard of people trying to sell this stuff and how they always show those before and after photos of people who have used it for 6 weeks or so. I finally tried it and I’m so glad I did. It’s a thick night cream but when it sets in your skin it feels tight! Kind of like a mini face lift! I use it every single night after I wash my face. I have seen a noticeable difference in my pore size and the oil production of my skin. I will definitely keep using it.
  • Josie Maran Argan Oil - I know everyone has heard of this but I JUST NOW got some after thinking it over for forever. This stuff is a miracle because I literally use it for everything. I use it in my hair, on my lips, on my dry skin on my arms, as eye cream EVERYTHING. It just melts in your skin! Josie Maran’s facial cleanser is AMAZING too! I love her stuff so much.

Winter Dry & Itchy Skin

Winter - Itchy and Dry Skin

Dry skin is common during the winter and can lead to flaking, itching, cracking and even bleeding. But you can prevent and treat dry skin,

It’s tempting, especially in cold weather, to take long, hot showers, But being in the water for a long time and using hot water can be extremely drying to the skin. Keep your baths and showers short and make sure you use warm, not hot, water.

Steps to take to reduce dry skin during the winter season.  Get rid of alcohol base or other irritants (deodorant soaps or fragrance products) out of your skin care products.  Start using a humidifier. Switching to a mild cleanser or using less can also help reduce itching.  Using ointment and cream will help you better than lotion.  If these measures don’t help with the dry skin, you may need a physician grade products.   Start using Skinmedica Ultra Sheer Moisturizer for lightweight and non-greasy protection or SkinMedica Dermal Repair Cream with the highest levels of antioxidants and moisturizing base product.

are you using the right type of moisturizer for you skin??

I love this article, its simple but also informative about what type of ingredients to look for in your moisturizer for each type of skin weather its oily, dry, or normal.. its super important to use the right type of moisturizer.

ask yourself this question.. When you put your moisturizer on does it automatically just absorb into your skin feeling like you never put it on in the first place?.. or does it feel silky soft and like its retaining the moisture in your skin?

Personally prefer a thick cream at the moment due to the weather being so cold!! I like being able to feel my moisturizer all day long. currently im using ultra balm and i seriously cannot get enough of it.. i put it on once in the morning and i can feel it all throughout the day it is AMAZING.

HI, I hope you can help me? I switched from using a nivea facial wash to using Fresh Farmacy and it completely cleared up my spots and only had alittle dryness but i just use more moistuizer but recently i've noticed i have redness that's dry and slightly flaking at the corners of my mouth and i was wondering if you could recommend anything for this? I put chapstick on frequently and FF is a godsend, I'd hate to have to stop using it!!

Try some Ultrabalm on those spots!  It really helped the inside of my nose (weird as it sounds) because where I live is super dry.  You can just use it as a lip balm too!
