A Whole New Meaning to Beauty Sleep

There’s nothing I love more than a good night’s sleep! You too?

You probably already know at night as we sleep, our skin works to repair itself from sun damage and pollution in the environment, while creating new skin cells.

But what if those of us with problem skin could also wake up to clearer, less irritated skin?

Wake up to Clearer Skin

Great news! It’s no longer a pipe dream thanks to Intensive Mineral Night Treatment, or as we call it, a miracle in a jar! It truly gives a whole new meaning to beauty sleep!

Used continuously, our Night Treatment goes one step further by preventing future breakouts.

And it couldn’t be simpler to use! You just apply 1 layer of the treatment powder to your skin after cleansing and moisturizing, then hop into bed so it can magically get to work!

4 Ways To Instantly Transform Your Skin

Transform your skin at home

If you’ve noticed your skin needs a little pick-me-up and a visit to the skin spa isn’t in the budget, I’ve got some great news for you! Great skin care doesn’t have to cost a fortune.

What your facialist doesn’t want you to know, is there are 5 ways to instantly (or pretty close to it) transform your skin at home without leaving you broke.  

Stay Hydrated

Probably the most important thing you can do for your skin is to keep it hydrated by drinking plenty of water. This is especially true as we get older, because our skin gradually loses it’s ability to hold moisture. Because our bodies are made mostly of water, it’s critical to replace it.

So how do you know how much water to drink? Some count 8-10 glasses, but I personally carry a 16 oz. bottle of water with me everywhere I go and keep it filled so I can drink throughout the day. The key to avoid dehydration is to drink before you “feel” thirsty.

Avoid The Sun

Our skin takes a real beating when we’re in the sun. Too much of it not only damages our skin, it makes it look dry and tired, leaving us looking old. Think you’re OK because you never burn?

Not so fast. Tanned skin is sun damage in disguise. The bronze skin you’re enjoying today will eventually show up as sun spots tomorrow, so don’t forget to grab your hat before heading to the beach.

Get Your  C

Adding a Vitamin C  serum to your skincare routine is another beautiful way to care for your skin. Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that fights the signs of aging by completely neutralizing free radicals. When looking for a serum, choose one with Vitamin C Ester, for tighter, brighter, younger looking skin.

Get Your Z’s

You may have heard the lack of sleep affects brain function, but it’s also been proven to be the culprit of poor overall skin health. When we don’t get the sleep our bodies crave, our skin creates the stress hormone Cortisol, and more Cortisol leads to body stress, inflammation and eventually skin conditions like Atopic Dermatitis and Eczema. Yikes!

With so many things in life out of our control, isn’t it great to know we have a say in the care and health of our skin? What do you do for your skin at home? Share it with me below!

 

 

 

3 Keys to A Flawless Foundation Finish!

Getting a flawless foundation finish doesn’t have to be rocket science, but, there are 3 Keys to getting there, and in today’s post, I’m going to share them with you!

Key #1- You Need to Be Patient

Nothing good ever comes from rushing, and it’s especially true when it comes to a flawless looking foundation finish. When putting on your makeup on the fly, it’s easy to miss spots, use too much, or even worse, not enough. 

Taking an extra minute to make sure you don’t miss a thing doesn’t take as long as you think.

Key #2- You Need the Right Foundation

A flawless finish is only as good as the foundation you use. Your best option is a water-resistant foundation, because it handles heat and humidity like a boss, so it stays put, even during your workout! Plus, the water resistance is what makes this foundation last all day and then some, never fading into the skin.  

So, what does that have to do with getting a flawless finish? A foundation made to last has more pigment, and pigment is what makes an even finish possible in the first place.

Key #3- You Need to Use the Right Brush

Any makeup artist will tell you the key to a flawless finish is all about the tools you use to apply your makeup.

Great coverage begins with the right application brush. Different foundation brushes give different coverage, so you need to be sure the one you’re using matches the type of coverage you want.

For example, when it comes to mineral makeup, a Kabuki brush is best for light coverage, because the full, wide bristles hold the least amount of foundation at once. The opposite is true for full coverage. Brushes with close set bristles hold the most product at a time, making it possible to apply more foundation at the same time, in one place. 

So, I want to know. Do you have your own tips for a flawless looking foundation finish? Share them with me below. And, if you enjoy reading posts just like this one, there’s so much more! Sign up below and get a fresh, new article sent to your inbox weekly!
