First, I am going to start by saying that I am not a skin care professional in anyway, I am a working woman in her early 30s.

When I was in High School all I cared about was being tan, I was addicted. The worst part was my parents told me I wasn’t allowed to, but I did it anyway. I wanted to fit in and I was in a teenager, I wasn’t thinking about my adult life. This addiction continued through college and throughout my mid 20s. I was always told I had amazing skin, genetics (you should see my Grandma!) I didn’t have acne, and I barely wore makeup. I thought that I could continue and nothing would effect me.

 

Now that I am in my 30s I started taking my skin care more seriously. I started doing research and became more aware with how I was taking care of my skin. I started using more lotions, spending less time in the sun, and using stronger SPFs. I also started adding more products to my daily routines.

 

 

 

I am going to provide you with a few facts about skin care. I am also going to tell you about a few products that I have incorporated into my life.

 

Block the Sun

This is one of the most important rules to follow. The sun may feel good against your skin and you might enjoy the tan but trust me, it isn’t worth it. Personally, I use a stronger SPF on my face than the rest of my body.

 

Wash Your Face Twice a Day

It is important to remember to wash once in the morning and once at night. You want to make sure that you remove your makeup and any trace of dirt any oil. You may also want to use a toner after you wash, this will help remove anything that was missed.

 

Watch What What You Eat and Drink

Remember, your skin is a vital organ. It helps regulate the rest of your body. Have you ever noticed that when you junk food you notice a difference in how your skin feels? You might feel a little oily, or have more break outs. On the other hand, when you eat fruits and vegetables your skin begins to feel and look vibrant. Lastly, make sure you drink a lot of water, this helps more than you might realize.

 

  

Skin care plays a bigger role in my life than I realized and I am so glad that I finally started to pay attention.

Recently, I added a couple of products to my daily routine that I would have never thought about using in the past. Twice a day I make sure to cleanse, tone, and moisturize. I thought that was all I needed. I decided that I wanted to focus more on anti-aging because if I start now my skin will thank me for it down the road.

The two products that I added to my routine are from Apothederm. Apothederm is a high tech skin care company that has patented SmartPeptidies. SmartPeptidies allow you to target areas of concern. I mean, who wouldn’t love that! 

 

FIRMING SERUM

 

I love this! I have never used a firming serum before. I apply it to my clean skin before I add a moisturizer. The firming serum helps to firm skin and reduce the signs of aging. This product is perfect for me. I noticed a difference immediately after using, my skin look bright and fresh. I have also noticed that using the firming serum as a part of my routine, I am not getting as oily throughout the day. This product is a game changer for my skin.

 

 

 

 

 

FIRMING NECK CREAM

 

Ok, what? That was my first reaction. Why do I need a neck cream. Surprisingly, it’s great! I have never focused on my neck, only my fact. To be honest, I forgot that the neck also gets exposure to the sun and daily life. I use a firming lotion on my body, so why wouldn’t I use it on my neck. Like the Firming Serum, I have noticed a difference in the look and feel of my neck. It is bright and smooth and is helping with my appearance. Oh, and you don’t need to use a lot so this product is going to last me forever, I love that!

 

  Don’t forget about taking care of your skin. Remember to stay out of the sun, drink lots of water, eat healthy, and create a skin care routine that you can follow.

Stay beautiful!
