Yesterday I wrote about some of my favorite beauty products that I am going to get during the Sephora Sale. Since I am a skin care fanatic I had to do a whole post dedicated to skin care that you need to step up your skin care regimen. With sales like this there is no excuse to get some of my favorites.
I have been using Algenist Liquid Collagen for years. It’s one of those holy grail products. Now I have my best friends, my mom and so many others hooked on it. It makes a huge difference in overall skin tone and fine lines. My skin looks brighter and many of my wrinkles are less noticeable.
I just started using Caudalíe this year and it’s become a staple in my skin care routine. Now that I am getting older I look for anti-aging products. I love their Resveratrol Lift Instant Firming Serum. It helps with firmness, fine lines, dehydration and elasticity. I also love that Caudalíe is a socially responsible company which strives to leave a greener footprint on this planet. You guys know I’m an advocate on sustainability and they have made greener efforts in their brand.
I don’t even know how many years I have been using Kate Somerville. She’s part of the family now. Kate Somerville always comes out with products that you can’t live without. New to the line is her KateCeuticals Firming Serum with Hyaluronic Acid. I love that this serum plumps your skin making it look fuller and more youthful. It will help give your skin life and bring it back to how it looked when you were younger. It’s great for all skin types.
When people would ask me what my favorite sunscreen was I never had a real answer until now. I can’t live without Supergoop! Unseen Sunscreen. It’s my favorite. It goes on easily, my makeup doesn’t look weird over it. It is weightless on which most sunscreens are not. I have been wanting to try the other sunscreens in the line but I keep buying this one. I wear it alone or under makeup.
It’s rare to find a face moisturizer you can use all year long. I always change my products with the season but Josie Maran’s Whipped Argan Oil Face Butter is one you can use with every season. It’s hydrating enough for those cold winter months and it is light for those hot summer days. I love how it absorbs quickly in your skin leaving it feeling so soft.
Kiehl’s I have been using since high school and I have tried so many products through the years and still love them. I started using their Midnight Recovery Concentrate. It’s good for preventing aging and aging skin. You apply this before bed and you wake up looking more radiant. It helps with texture and hydration. So if you only have slept for 3 hours you’ll look like you had a full 8 hour rest.
I’ve been a huge fan of overnight masks. Dr. Zenovia Skincare has a new Inflam-Aging Night Repair Treatment. A lot of over night treatments tend to be thick and this feels like a light weight lotion and absorbs into your skin instead of just sitting on top of it. It has medical grade actives in it so it’s like visiting a derm but in the comfort of your home.
If your skin care routine doesn’t have a good exfoliator you need one. Dermalogica’s Daily Microexfoliant is the best. It’s a cult favorite. It is gentle for all skin types and you can really feel and see a difference in your skin after just one use. It comes in a powder form so you mix it with a little water and create a paste to get rid of all those dead skin cells that make your skin dull.
If your eye are is the problem, Tarte’s Maracuja C-Brighter Eye Treatment is what you need to add to your cart. It will help brighten your eyes and that’s important now since our eyes are the main focus of our face because of wearing masks. It also targets fine lines, crow’s feet, and puffiness. Your eye area will look less saggy and more awake.
Glass skin is what’s in and Glow Recipe helps you achieve that with just a few drops of their Watermelon Glow Niacinamide Dew Drops. It’s a serum that helps hydrate, reduce pigmentation, and leaves you with a dewy glow. It doesn’t have anything in it that will make it look glittery. It is gentle enough for all skin types.
Summer is almost here and you want that pretty summer skin, well you can get it now. Eve Lom’s Time Retreat Essence gets rid of that dull & uneven skin tone. It also helps fight against stress from environmental factors like pollution. Your skin will stay hydrated for up to 72 hours after using this. It’s perfect for all those summer vacations you’re probably planning. I’m adding it to my inflight skin care routine.
If you haven’t tried a peel and always wanted to this is your chance. Paula’s Choice Skin Perfecting 25% AHA + 2% BHA Exfoliant Peel is the perfect at home peel to start with. So many people express to me that they are afraid of peels and there is nothing to be scared of. It’s a great way to jump start your skin to reveal brighter skin. This one will do it gradually, it’s easy to use. All you do is apply it wait the time and rinse it off. It is non-irritating.
If you are looking for a stronger at home peel Obagi Blue Brilliance Triple Acid Peel is the one you need. It comes in little vials, you will feel your face tingle a little and it will have your skin flaking off. It’s easy to use. You will get great results.
I love using an essence in my skin care routine. I apply it after I wash my face. This Innisfree Firming Energy Essence with Fermented Soybean is great for dry skin. It will help your skin feel more hydrated and plump it. What I do is splash it on and pat it in. It makes my skin look brighter.
