Skincare 101: 6 Steps To Beautiful Skin

Everyone wants the have beautiful glowing skin, right? Just like the beautiful celebrities like Halle Barry, Jennifer Lopez, Kim Kardashion, and many more. Most people will run to the nearest sephora or drugstore to find that perfect foundation to achieve it, but your really need to pay attention to what is underneath it which is the skin itself. Wearing foundation is great, but if the skin condition underneath it is uneven the foundation can accentual the problem. I found that beautiful skin starts with the skin first and how we take care of it. The skin’s condition is the most important factor to consider when you are want to achieve flawless skin.  So you may ask, how can I get beautiful skin? Well let’s start off with some basics!

Hydrating the skin: Water is very important to your body and skin health. Water helps carry vital nutrients to your skin cells as a result creating nice smooth and plumped skin. Water also helps flush nasty toxins out of our bodies creating radiant skin. So staying hydrated is important. Like the doctors say drink 8 eight ounce glasses of water a day does the body and skin some good.
 
Healthy Diet equals healthy skin. When the body is given a balance diet of fruits, veggies, grains, and lean proteins the skin is proven to be more clear and radiant. I can attest to that myself because when my diets consist of too much soda, fried foods and rich sauces my skin rebels to blemish city.
 
Active lifestyle: Get you body moving try simply walking our jogging 2-3 days a week. You will see a difference in your skin and your body too! Exercise helps flush out nasty toxins out of of body and since the skin tissue is the largest organ on the body exercise will make a huge difference with out skin.

Skincare Regime for Cleansing the skin day and night. I can promise you that cleansing you skin twice a day will keep you skin nice and clear from breakouts especially if you are a beauty junkie like me and love to wear your favorite makeup brands to enhance your beauty. Cleansing the face at night helps remove your makeup, oils and other free radicals that can cause our precious pores on your face to become clogged and break out. Some of my  favorite cleansers are: Moisture Rescue Fresh Cleansing Foam , Bliss Fabulous Foaming Face Wash 6.7 oz, Murad Refreshing Skin Cleanser 6.75 oz, and Boscia Purifying Cleansing Gel 5 oz.
 

Night Time Moisturizing for All Skin types: Not having a moistururizer can cause any skintype to become dehydrated after cleansing. In some case after cleansing your PH balance in your skin is low causing the skin moisture level to become unbalanced as a result, the skin appears dull and dehydrated lacking that resilient glow and moisture. Normal to oily skin may want to consider a moisturizer that is more water based like a light weight moisture lotion.

Final Step is to Protect The Skin: When you are getting ready to head out to the great outdoors it is important to protect your skin from the premature aging that is causes by many things such as the sun's harmful UVA/UVB rays, dirt, smoke and pollutants that is in our environment. You can protect you skin by shielding it from these free radicals by using daytime moisturizers with SPF and vitamins A, C, and E. Almost every skin care enthusiasts and dermatologists will recommend this in any skincare regimen. NOTE: When it comes too sunscreen remember this, If you foundation or moisturizer has an SPF 15 take the 15 and multiply it by 10 and that will give you the minutes that sunscreen is good for. So, for this example the SPF 15 is only good for 150 minutes before it expires. So remember if you will be wearing foundation and you will be outdoor longer than that time wear a higher sunscreen under the makeup. However if you are not wearing makeup make sure you re apply your sun screen for continuous protection.

With these steps taken you will be on your way to having beautiful skin. However, I will say that when considering your skin always consult with a doctor for skin (dermatologist, esthetician and etc) for advice if you are unsure on how to deal with your skin. Of course most people will say what about going to the department store or Sephora? Well, speaking from experience with working in both places mentioned consultants hired to work their are only able to give you advice on what product will work best for your skin type and skin concern. Futhermore linking the correct product to you in order to purchased. Which is fine, however if you truly do not have a clue about your skin or if you have highly sensitive skin and over the counter skincare products are not working or making your skin condition worse please go seek help from a professional.
 

Now, I would like to hear from you!  How do you keep your skin clear and healthy? What are you favorite skincare brands either drug store or highend please share. I would truly like to know and so would other readers too. So far at the moment I have been testing out drugstore skincare by Garnier Nutritioniste's Moisture rescue line and I am loving it so far. I have been using it for a week now and I will definitely give a review on it soon!

Bliss Vanilla+Bergamot Set Review

Hi beauty chameleons, in my previous post I was talking about nails, right? Well, if you want to learn how to keep your hands and cuticles soft and moist to promote nail growth, and keep your body smooth and moist as well keep on reading.

You have got to try these powerful 3 products by BlissWorld. I just recently did a haul about this item on youtube. I love these products! I first started to use them for what they were for, bath and body and I was starting to notice how soft and smooth my skin was feeling after just a few days of use. Then I was thing, if this is making my skin feel so smooth why not use it for manicures too! So I started to used them for my manicures and I was awe. Why? Well my cuticles were always so dry. I am a mom and I clean and always have my hands submerge in water. Hence the word dry hands and cuticles leads to nail breakage for me.

How did I use these Items? Well, I would first, remove my nail polish and even them out and buff them smooth. Next, I would soak my nails in the Vanilla+Bergamot bath and shower gel for 5 minutes.Oh my gosh! My hands were so soft and so were my cuticles. At this point I was able push back and trim my cuticles and hang nails if needed with ease.

After that, I treated my hand to a nice exfoliation with the Vanilla+Bergamot Body buff. Oh la la! The exfoliation was such a treat! My hand was almost as smooth as baby skin. Finally after, the first two steps I hydrated my hands with the Vanilla+Bergamot body butter and my hands were in heaven a least for a little while. As a result, this will be my new manicure products I use once a week to continue my nail growth and maintenance too! The set shown is the bliss vanilla+bergamot set for $80 was $95 they are in large containers so I am sure that will last a good 3-4 months unless you just love it sooo much like me.

What they say about this product:

Bliss Vanilla+Bergamot Body Butter – This tenderly blended aromatic moisture mix has amber, lemon, bergamot, myrrh and musk, putting the ‘thrilla’ back in vanilla. Repeated use will leave your skin silky soft, supple and mouth-wateringly moist.

Bliss Vanilla+Bergamot Bubbling Bath + Shower Gel – Our super-smoothing almond and aloe gel soft soap foams up fast and does double (bubble) duty in the bath.

Bliss Vanilla+Bergamot Body Buff – Our ultra-softening shea butter and sweet almond scrub paste is laced with skin-smoothing vanilla bean pieces.

Beauty Pros: The formulation was non-greasy and easy to work with. I love Vanilla scented items and this blend was just breath taking to me. The exfoliation in the body buff was not too coarse to me which is a plus. Overall I would buy the full sizes for sure!! I can’t wait to run out of my trial sizes!! If you live near a Bliss spa you can actually enjoy this treatment with you favorite girlfriends! If you live in Texas there is a bliss spa at the W  Hotel in the Dallas area. I am so jealous!

Beauty Cons: Kind of pricey for all three at $80 per set, but it is well worth the splurge.
