Being a mom to two busy toddlers, there’s not a lot of “me” time in the day. I often don’t have the time to put on makeup (besides mascara of course), so a good skin care regimen is key! I’ve typically always had a good skin care regimen at home but now that I’ve entered my 30’s, it’s time to take it up a notch.
At home- I’ve tried many face cleansers, serums, and lotions but I have to say my favorite is the Epionce line! I am currently using the Lytic Gel Cleanser paired with my everyday Renewal Facial Lotion. Once I’m done, I finish it off with Skin Medica’s Total Defense + Repair SPF lotion. This combination leaves my skin feeling soft and alive 🙂
- HydraFacial– Seriously the best facial I’ve ever received! This facial is a major step up from your typical facial because it uses patented technology to cleanse, extract, and hydrate. It not only gets rid of impurities and dead skin cells but quenches your skin with vital nutrients such as antioxidants, peptides, and hyaluronic acid. This non-invasive treatment requires no downtime and you’ll leave with an instant glow.
- Dermaplaning- I’ve always heard of this but never knew what it was. This is a highly effective physical exfoliation procedure. Again there is no down time and it’s non-invasive. They use a surgical scalpel and gently “shave” the skin’s surface, removing the top layer of dead skin. It’s also great for anyone that has a little peach fuzz on their face. This procedure will leave your face feeling as smooth as a baby’s bottom 🙂
- Microneedling- The insertion of very fine short needles into the skin for the purpose of rejuvenation. As the tiny microneedle holes heal, collagen and elastin are naturally produced, causing the skin to shrink and tighten. This procedure is still pretty non-invasive but with leave your skin feeling windburned and slightly red. Give yourself a few days and you’ll be back new again! For me, this procedure was more uncomfortable than painful. My results have been unbelievable and I am excited for my next session.
I promise you ladies, all of these procedures are amazing and will leave your skin feeling younger and refreshed! Up next, Lindsay and I talk all things Botox! Stayed tuned.
