Skin Tips That Work

Feb 2, 2016

I know I talked about my resolutions for the new year at the start of last month and finding some useful skin tips and actually following through on them was high on that list. I have been trying a few things everyday for the past month and they have been working wonders (I feel like my under eyes look like a young 27 year old?!) That may be my new makeup too hah -> more on that later!

In addition to these changes I have been using La Prairie Cellular Radiance for weeks and can not tell you how much tighter my face feels. When La Prairie reached out to me I figured this was the perfect opportunity to try a luxe face cream to see if they lived up to all the hype. I researched the brand and really dived into reviews which were almost all positive. The cream is created from a gold lotus blend that is magical I tell you. I have long lusted after high cost beauty creams but never taken the plunge for fear it may not do everything I want it to. So far this cream has lived up to it’s claims and makes my skin feel better almost instantly.

I also started doing a few other things I think may be making a difference:

  1. Whole 30: I won’t lie my skin has never looked better than when I wasn’t eating junk food and drinking tons of water. I have been starting each morning with hot lemon water before my coffee and it helps a ton!
  2. Sleep: I was great at this for a few days but am struggling again so send me what works for you…I am aiming for 7 hours each night!
  3. Wash your face (really): I have been washing my face when I get home from work since I  loathe waking myself up with cold water right before bed. I use my face brush to exfoliate about 2-3 times a week now!
  4. Keep face wipes on hand – for those days you are feeling really tired this is an easy way to get all that makeup off and have been a lifesaver.
  5. I started using a toner after I wash my face that always removes more residue – who knew?
  6. Use a mask (depending on your skin type) once a week and eye cream every night!

If you are thinking of taking the luxury skincare leap I suggest testing out samples to see what works best for you before investing. Also, try a few of these other tricks to see what works for you and what doesn’t. I’m still undecided on an eye cream so let me know what tips have been working for you and your favorite beauty products – I am always looking for new things!
