Here are a few of my go-to beauty/skin care products. Skin care and beauty products are something that I am willing to invest in. It is important to use good products on your skin and even more important to consult your dermatologist in coming up with or tweaking your skin care and/or beauty routine. 

 

 

 
 
 

 

First, I’ll start with my go-to exfoliant:

I have pretty sensitive and delicate skin so I only exfoliate once or twice a week depending on how much I need to. I am obsessed with the St. Ives Apricot Scrub. It is so cleansing and really lifts the dead skin off and gives you an instant facial. I always feel like a weight has been lifted off my face after using it. 

 

 

 

 

One makeup product that I swear by, is the Chanel Soleil Bronzing Base. It is light on the skin, great for contouring and it really gives off a nice summer glow. It is truly a miracle worker, so I apply it everywhere! 

(Comparable Products in Other Complexions: Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Matte Bronzing Powder, NARS Laguna Bronzer, Bourjois Delice de Poudre Chocolate Bronzer).

 

Every night, my skin calls for this amazing serum! This is the Neocutis,Hyalis Hydrating Serum. It is very light on the skin and extremely hydrating. This product contains hyaluronic which improves skin hydration by adding moisture to the dermal layer of the skin. Best of all, it is one of the most effective anti-aging products out there. I apply it all over my face and neck in the evenings. 
 
 

A moisturizer that I swear by has to be the RéVive, Moisturizing Renewal Cream. Similar to the NeoCutis serum, it is very light on the skin, cooling and hydrating. I apply it morning and night. Also I love that it contains SPF!


 
 
The skin around the eyes is very fragile, prone to dryness, and a good indicator of age and fatigue. That is why using an eye creams is a MUST. I use the NeoCutis, MICRO-EYES Rejuvenating Cream. I put a little bit on my ring finger and lightly dab it around the eye area.
 
This product contains micro protein complex (MPC), which is an exclusive, breakthrough technology that helps with skin rejuvenation and aids in eliminating signs of aging. This includes symptoms such as skin elasticity, firmness, fine lines and wrinkles.
 
Note: It is very important to be delicate when applying this product. Harming the skin around your eyes would be counterproductive.
 
People often neglect their lips. I love keeping my lips hydrated and plump. I love the Fresh, Sugar Rosé Lip Treatment. I apply it in the morning and at night, and I can really see a difference when I use it and when I don’t. Another perk is that it gives your lips a nice tint, which is a win-win!
