Happy Friday Loves! Who else is ready for the weekend? I know I am! I’m always counting down to QT with the fam on Saturdays & Sundays.
Okay, topic for the day – how to improve your skin TODAY! I’m going to share a few of my very favorite products (all are linked below) that will make an IMMEDIATE improvement in your skin with their very first use. These products are good for EVERY skin type and will help the texture and tone of your skin right away.
This product is not called Hollywood’s 2 Minute Facial for nothing – if you don’t have the time or resources to dedicate to getting routine facials…this is the product for you! This product will give you an INSTANT improvement in your skin texture by sloughing off all those dead skin cells, stimulating cell turnover and improving your skin tone. I LOVED this product right out of the gate with my first try. It is on the pricey side at $85 for a 2 oz bottle, but Sephora sells a travel size for $24 for .5 oz so you can buy it and try it out for a very reasonable price point. You’ll more than likely find that you’ll get the bigger size eventually. You don’t need much of this product – a little goes a long way – so that helps make this bottle worth the price. I typically use this about 1x per week and it’s worked it’s way into a repeat purchase product for me (which is not easy to do..haha). This product meets several of the standards I have for myself, like no parabens & no sulfates and contains very good ingredients (as do all the products I recommend). It does give my skin a bit of a tingle, but I love that feeling because it makes me feel like all the enzymes are eating away all the bad stuff on my skin. I can’t say enough good things about this exfoliating treatment – so if you’re on the hunt for something to help improve your skin today, buy this!
I swear this cream works INSTANTLY at relieving dry skin, however if you don’t have dry skin, I still feel like this product will help give you the moisture your skin needs without being too heavy or greasy. This cream is great for ALL skin types because of the healing ingredients, the way it absorbs into the skin, and how it truly treats your skin instead of just sitting on top of it. I feel like it’s a major winner for sensitive skin too! You can use this product on just your face, but it can also treat eczema or dry skin anywhere on your body. It’s very soothing to skin because of the active ingredient, colloidal oatmeal, is great at protecting your skin. Whether it be from every day environmental pollution or if you’re an avid hiker/skier/outdoorsy gal – this is the cream that will literally protect your skin in any element. I actually use this product pretty sparingly, only a couple times a week in the summer, and then once those colder months come along – I use it more frequently. If your skin isn’t dry, you could just use it as your night cream. Basically, this cream could be a perfect match for almost everyone! I hope you try it and love it as much as I do. The standard size sells for $30 at Sephora, but again, it’s offered in travel sizes if you want to try it before committing to a bigger size.
Product #3 – Fresh Black Tea Instant Perfecting Mask
Another AMAZING product that will make your skin feel and look better right away! Again, this product is for ALL skin types. The first time I used this mask, I was blown away with how great my skin felt afterwards. I couldn’t believe it! Like the exfoliator I recommended above, if you don’t have the time or resources to dedicate to getting regular facials – this is a must-have product for your skincare collection. It’s an investment at $92 but WELL worth it. Again, you won’t need to use a ton of this product, I try to use it once a week (on a separate day from the ExfoliKate), but I often forget so it ends up being every other week, which makes this product last a long time for me. However, this mask is gentle enough to use multiple times a week if you really want to improve your skin. I love the texture of this mask, how hydrating it feels on my skin, and of course the results after using it. Bonus: Use the FAB Ultra Repair Cream mentioned above after this mask for a truly post facial feel for your skin.
Lastly, I’m going to get on my soapbox a little here ladies – it’s SO important to take care of your skin at an early age or to start now if you haven’t done so already. Don’t wait until you start seeing the signs of aging before you start using anti-aging products! Use them NOW! You WILL NOT regret it. Our skin is our largest organ of our body, it’s constantly regenerating (every 27 days to be exact) so it’s always a good investment to take the time to care for your skin starting today. Unless..of course,you’re a unicorn blessed with amazing skin without doing a thing, which in that case I’m VERY jealous of you! 😉
