REVITALIZED SKIN RECIPE

by Debbie

There is no girl or woman on this planet that hasn’t read in a post, email update or magazine about the celebrity looking skin or even seen it on a red carpet event. Celebrities skin just GLOWS.

I’m always searching for new beauty products, I love to take care of my skin not only because obviously we all want to age beautifully but because beauty is a subject that I find extremely interesting and fascinating.

On this post I’m sharing my favorite products for getting the amazing revitalized skin we all want. In other words, CELEBRITY LOOKING SKIN.  Please consider your current skin conditions. If you currently suffer any skin condition like acné, rosácea, dermatitis or any other, these products won’t make that condition dissapear. You will have to speak to your dermatologist first and once your skin has reached it’s complete health and balance then you can consider my recommendations. Also it’s important to analyze your skin type. I have normal to dry skin, these routine and products have positively impacted my skin and I will definitely continue to use them.  Hope you can relate to me and find this tips helpful too. I do this routine when I have a special event the next day like filming a video or a photoshoot. First:

CLEANSE AND EXFOLIATE

Before anything I cleanse my skin with JOSIE MARAN CLEANSING ARGAN OIL.  If you follow my blog you already now this is one of my favorites. If you are new you’ll soon notice it too.  After I cleanse my skin, I proceed to exfoliate it.  I love  the CUP O’ COFFEE EXFOLIATING MASK from Lush Cosmetics. It has (for me) , a very strong coffee smell, you’ll feel like you’ve just being dipped into a just brewed cup of coffee, literally.  Apply it all over the face but the eye area, leave it for 15 minutes and as the minutes go by, you’ll start to feel a tightening sensation all over your face.

TIP:Before applying this mask,  I like put it on the fridge for around 30 minutes.  Then I apply the cold mask to my face. The cold coffee sensation on your skin will be explosive.

APPLY STARSKIN VIP MASK-THE GOLD MASK

I bought several masks from Starskin in my latest trip to Amsterdam. I have being wanting to try these masks for quite a long time. They’ve won several skin awards, but to be honest, I need to try the product and then give my verdict, before believing it really works. Finally found them at the airport, so I did not hesitate and bought them.

To apply the mask follow the instructions on the back of the golden envelope. Once you open it, you’ll see the mask has 3 layers. The layer in the middle is the one you’ll apply into your skin. It will be easy for you to identify the correct one. The layers on both sides are very texturized, while the layer in the middle is plain.

Distribute the serum through the entire mask. I personally add a few of the leftover serum on the extra layers into my skin and then apply to mask.  Make sure no wrinkles are left on your face. Leave the mask for 20 minutes. Remove the mask and massage the remaining product onto the skin until absorbed.

This mask is perfect for dry skin skins. The evening primrose  and coconut oil on the mask will contribute to keep your skin smooth and hydrated.

 

NOW GET SOME BEAUTY SLEEP!  The rest of the products, you will apply them the next morning.

JURLIQUE ROSEWATER BALANCING MIST

Once you wake up and wash your face, gently dry it with a clean towel and spray several spirits of Jurlique Rose Water Mist into your face.  The scent of roses combined with marshmallow extract is insanely comforting and refreshing.  This mist will help your skin prepare to absorb all hydrating products you are going to apply. It’s also amazing to set your makeup.

JOSIE MARAN WHIPPED ARGAN OIL FACE BUTTER

I’m a huge fan of Josie Maran and her Argan oil products. I’ve being using them for quite a while and they worked perfectly for my dry skin. I also love they’re made of 100% organic and natural ingredients. This product not only features Argan Oil, it also has cucumber seeds oil and shea butter. All ultra hydrating components. My skin feels super soft. Looks healthy, hydrated and glowy.  This product is so noble, you can also apply it under your eyes.

TIP: Next you can apply Josie Maran Argan oil. I do it because I have dry skin but if your skin is oily to combination I will skip this step.Once your skin care products are set into your skin apply your makeup.  Apply a primer if you need to first.

PHOTO FINISH HYDRATING UNDER EYE PRIMER

I have always struggled with my under eyes. I spent a lot of time on the computer and most of the time, I don’t get enough sleep. So for me it’s crucial a brightening product for my under eyes. Once I discovered this pink undertone primer, believe me undereye game totally changed. After applying Josie Maran whipped Argan Oil and let it set, I proceed to apply this primer.  It has a it’s charged with caffeine and peptides which contribute to reduce puffiness and darkness, both checked on my primary  issues list. Then I’m ready for concealer.

Once your makeup is all set, you can go back and sprit some more Jurlique Rose Mist to set your makeup.

Hope you love this routine and skincare products as much as I do.

SOS FOR HANGOVER SKIN

by Debbie

Did you party long last night or did you just had too many drinks and sadly have to wake up way too early today?? Let me share with you my tips that not only work as SOS for a party looking face, they’ve also helped me when I had a tough night and worked until very late. We all know once you look in the mirror the next morning, the reflection tells it all!

WATER

As soon as I wake up, I drag myself into the kitchen to get a glass of water, the No.1 super natural hydrator. Then I go ahead and place my favorite 911 eye patches in the fridge to cool while I head to take a cold shower to activate my circulation and off course WAKE UP.

Now let get into to fun part!

JOSIE MARAN CLEANSING ARGAN OIL

I cleanse my face with Josie Maran Cleasing oil. It’ the best cleanser I’ve tried in a long time. If you have dry skin like me, you will not regret using it. If you are more into the oily side, I will recommend to consult with your dermatologist first. I wet my face and then add 2 pumps of the cleasing oil into my fingers, rub it a little and then start massaging my face. The sensation is totally different from other cleansers. The oil warms into your skin and turns into milk giving you a very soothing sensation. It takes away all impurities without being too harsh. Argan oil is packed with healing and protective properties like triterpenoids which offer tissue healing if you have scars. It also has anti-inflammatory, sun-protective and disinfectant properties. Finally, I rinse with water and dry with soft padding motions.

TARTE PACK YOUR BAGS

My favorite 911 undereye patches! I take them from the fridge, remove them from the satchet gently and place them right below my under eyes. The cold feel refreshing and the inflammation under the eyes will be reduced.  These patches contain Gardenia Taitensis extract which is a flower that in counties like Samoa, is used to treat inflammation. You will feel very quickly how the skin tightens. I leave the patches for approximately 15 minutes and start getting dressed.

CELESTIAL MOISTURIZER BY LUSH

One of my favorite products from Lush is their Celestial Moisturizer. The aroma of almond milk and vanilla is simply delightful to me. One of the key ingredients in this cream is almonds. According to Joy Bauer, almonds are a great source of Vitamin E which protects skin cells from damage. Joy Bauer is a nutrition and health expert founder of Nourish Snacks, she is also columnist for Woman’s Day magazine. A tip for this cream, keep this product on the fridge, I love the cooling sensation on my skin.
Back to the routine, after I remove my eyepatches, I gently massage my under eyes with almost no pressure to have the skin absorb what’s left of the eyepatches. I take an almond size amount of moisturizer and massage it throughout my face. Because of being vegan, this product will not irritate your skin, on the contrary, will leave your skin super soft with a luminous glow that I personally love. I’ve even extended the application under my eyes and worked perfectly.

BIODERMA 100 TINTED SPF

As an extra tip to finish our rescue session, add some spf to your skin. My esthetician recommended me Bioderma 100% protection.  It will protect  my sensitive skin with cellular bioprotection.  It’s also inted, so it will give a soft golden tan that will also contribute to hide the lack of sleep on your skin. For application I pour a small amount and dab it into my skin. I recommend only padding motions throughout the face.
Now you are ready for a little makeup. I have special products and technique for makeup in this special scenario, however well talk about that in my next beauty post.

Let me know if it worked for you!
