The weather here has been rainy and dreary and to be honest it’s starting to affect my mood. Whenever possible I am getting outside to connect with the breaks in rain, putter around the garden and get some bunny snuggles.
I keep wanting to get a picture of our newest addition-Frank the bunny-digging in his hay box which is a re-purposed Beauty Society box. It makes me smile to see it.
One of the things that has been happening to my skin is the occasional break-out. It’s a normal part of my cycle-yet still irritating. This past week I started using the Baby Cal Down mask at night in replacement of my normal Youth Accelerator. I couldn’t believe how I woke up the next day to see the breakouts were almost gone (definitely gone enough to be hidden under some light foundation). The first night I figured it may have been a fluke or I got lucky but when it worked the second night in a row I knew I had found something.
So if you find yourself dealing with the occasional facial flare-up you may want to give this a try.
Don’t forget that Beauty Society offers a 12-month Satisfaction Guarantee!
(Yes 12 MONTHS to try it and love it!)
Is it really April 19th? I don’t know why but this month has really just whizzed by me. Our weekends have been busy (well for us anyway) so I think that’s part of it but man, I feel like I blinked and Easter was over.
Regardless the seedlings are going, the yard work is being chipped away at and I am getting around to sharing this month’s specials with you, my amazing readers. (On a side note if you want to be kept up to date on more than a weekly basis be sure to join my Facebook Group for daily inspiration, product info and the general ramblings of my Beauty Society mind 🙂
As always if you have any questions please don’t hesitate to reach out. I will see you all next week.
I wanted to share today with you a little bit about why my skincare routine is so important to me. Of course there is the obvious part-it makes my skin look and feel great but there is also more to it. At night, generally after my children have been put to bed (well, the first time anyway lol) I take the time to remove my makeup and do my skincare routine. For me, that time of washing away the remnants of the day is an act of self care and something that is really important to me.
I really believe that as women we truly need to master the art of self-care. I talk about this type of journey much more over on my main blog but I believe making the time each and every day to do something just for you and because it feels good is so important.
And it takes less than 5 minutes (I know I timed it 🙂
So today I am sharing with you Step #3 Rebuild & Repair and just like the other posts I will share with you the products I use and my experiences and then the other options at the end of the post.
I started out using Youth Accelerator and LOVE it! The fragrance is amazing and what I really love is-there is NO FRAGRANCE ADDED! The scent is naturally occurring from the ingredients-how awesome is that?No product on the market can match the regenerative power of this youth accelerating serum. Here are the details:
5% Apple Stem Cell is combined with a proven blend of Peptides, Q-10 plus, Argireline XP and Mala’kite to immediately smooth lines, fight free radical damage and promote the skins natural defenses. Drastic and visible results can be seen in as little as 28 days. – Slow & reverse aging – Improve collagen production – Prevent stem cell deterioration & increase renewal.
This product is perfect for anyone who wants smoother, tighter & healthier skin. Use morning and evening.
Now, to be fair when I ran out of this item I decided to dig into my kit and give the other one a go so I can offer a comparison and the truth is I am not sure which I love more. With Our Little Secret you will feel the firming effects immediately and wrinkle reversal continues with prolonged use guaranteed! It’s up to you whether you let them in on your little secret. – Contains five botanical firming ingredients in addition to pentapeptide-4 – Feeling a little tired during the day? Apply over your makeup around the eyes for an instant “pick me up” – Some may be sensitive to peptides and may develop tiny white bumps. This is a skin reaction, not acne or pimples. I personally haven’t had any of these reactions and have really noticed a “lift” to my skin and it appears younger and more awake to me and I have been using it for about a week now.
I honestly don’t think you can go wrong with either of these but if you skin leans towards the sensitive I would give Youth Accelerator a try first-and remember our 12 month skin care guarantee!
The last Step #3 product I use is our Immortal Eyes. The Breakthrough technology behind this eye crème-gel will teach your skin to alter its aging behavior by prolonging the longevity of your own stem cells. Serving as a mediator between time and your cellular communicators, this revolutionary treatment will combat & reverse chronological aging. – Triglycerides and hyaluronic acid deeply hydrate, further reducing crepiness as they soften and rejuvenate the skin – Drastic & visible results can be seen in as little as 28 days – Prevents new lines from forming – Smoothing & lifting to eye area – Very strong, and it is suggested to apply as the last of the step 3 products.
I really do love this product and have found it effective. You will definitely notice a lift with this amazing product!
Alright so now we will go through the other options you can choose from depending on your personal needs and skin type.
This ultra rich mousse com-bines advanced technology using a new age of “smart” ingredients. It acts as a fountain of youth to restore cells to a younger acting state. Recovery from past damage is heightened, while the skin’s own innate repair mechanisms kick into high gear. Skin is re-energized and colla-gen performs more effectively; resulting in vibrant, younger-looking skin that withstands the test of time. – Dramatically improves skin’s tone, firmness and elasticity – Repairs visible sun damage and other signs of environmental stress – Boosts skin’s immune response to support dna self-repair – Encourages healthy collagen development – Instantly leaves skin soft, supple and silky-smooth
This is as good as it gets! We’re not messing around with this aggressive multi-peptide strength sculpting neck and décolleté crème. Loaded with 4% Matrixyl 3000, an ogliopeptide and cell-messengering complex to target the tissue producing cells to enhance firmness for the neck and décolleté. To enhance the sculpted effect is an anti-puffiness complex of Eyeless, a blend of skin-strengthening flavonoids and elasticity peptides that reduce slacked skin. If it does all this for your neck and décolleté, imagine what it will do for your crows feet and under eye bags! Worry no more! All this science, just to give back your Perfect Form!
This crease-reversing, wrinkle-erasing crème delivers comparable, if not better results, than harmful facial injec-tions. Ingredients like Amino Butryic Acid and Gynostemma release your skins own natural muscle relaxers to instantly smooth out fine lines, wrinkles and crow’s feet. A healthy dose of Matrixyl 3000 (multi-chain peptides) works from the inside to rebuild the damage, making the wrinklefree skin permanent in as little as 60 – 90 days. Poker Face may be used on fine lines and wrinkles caused by facial movements, crow’s feet, furrows, nasal labial folds, and forehead wrinkles. – Use on clean skin, before applying other step 3 products – Additional Poker Face may be applied if full results are not reached within 10 minutes. – For best results, emulsify the product on the line or wrinkle, and then gently pat in until fully absorbed.
Ok so that seems like a lot but remember that starting with one product is the easiest way to build your new regimen and then you can always add items down the road! Be sure to check out the video below that goes through all this as well and of course you can reach out to me if you would like some help in developing your new caring skin care routine.
