Last night's skincare routine. The order here is all mixed up. Used Plié cleanser to remove makeup, Exfolikate as a second cleanse. Hydrate serum is quite interesting, once it sinks into the skin it felt kind of tight, I needed something on top ASAP. Étoile oil on top and voila, just like magic, works perfectly together really loved the oil!
Moisturizer is one of the single most important products for younger looking skin and even helps you blend your makeup easier! When it comes to face moisturizer, one of my absolute favorites is Clarins Multi-Active Day cream. It leaves your skin feeling super soft and smelling like roses, literally. This fresh and vibrant antioxidant cream works hard to target fine lines and smooth your skin. If you are looking for the perfect moisturizer I highly recommend this one. @clarinsusa

Did someone say #CHOCOLATE? Dark Chocolate with 70% Cacao, offers many benefits.
For your Heart - it decreases your chance of a blood clot that could lead to heart attack or stroke.
For your Skin - it contains antioxidants that improve blood flow, promote a healthy glow, fight wrinkles from settling in and protect from UV damage.
For your Body - it has been shown to decrease inflammation. Also, research indicates that people who have a little bit every day have lower BMIs than those who don't.
And for your Mind - because it reduces stress hormones and boosts the release of dopamine (and tastes freakin' awesome!) .
Question: Do age spots naturally occur as we age? Answer: Age spots despite their name are not because of the aging process. Quite simply it is from sun exposure - they are areas of brown or grayish color that show up on our faces, neck, hands and chest. If you have been exposed to the sun repeatedly for many years, you will see them. You can prevent them by using sunscreen daily and avoiding prolonged sun exposure. If you have any questions, please let me know in the comments section.
Day 16 of #januaryskinchallenge is skin tip. I don't have the experience or knowledge to provide some sort of profound skincare tip. All I can say is use sunscreen regularly! Besides for the whole not wanting to get skin cancer thing, sunscreen is also critical for more vain reasons. It's probably the best anti-aging tool out there. If you're spending time and money on your skincare routine and aren't using sunscreen, you aren't really maximizing your time or money. Furthermore some active ingredients like AHAs, benzoyl peroxide, and retinoids cause photosensitivity. So skipping a sunscreen while using those products is actually detrimental to your skin. If you're gonna slap on skincare product on your face in the morning-- make it sunscreen
Today's theme for the #JanuarySkinChallenge is favourite type of product, and mine would have to be actives! There's something so exciting about how impactful and potent they are, and I tend to be an impatient person who wants my skin to clear up quickly so I turn to actives a lot. This impatience, and my naturally dry skin, means I'm very prone to dehydration Pictured above: #Stridex Maximum Strength Pads @Cosrx AHA Power Liquid @deciem He Ordinary Azelaic Acid 10% #Nufountain Vitamin C Serum @Curology Prescription
