To Serum or Not to Serum? Is that the question?

By February 11, 2019 Anti-Aging Gracefully, My Beauty Tips

Facial Serums… What are they? Which one do I get?

Lots of questions, right?  Do you find yourself shopping for skincare and come across the facial serums?  Well I’m here to let you know, if you aren’t using one, you’re missing out.

A serum… in a nut shell.. is a treatment product that is applied after cleansing and before moisturizing, that allows your moisturizer to work in unison to achieve optimal results.  Serums contain properties that will either, aid in Anti-Aging, Correct skin Discoloration, resurface the skin, or ALL of these, and more.  It’s important that you know, what the facial serum’s benefits are, so you can choose the most appropriate type for your skin concern.

I have tried a few facial serums before I found one of my favorites; Lancôme’s Advanced Genifique, Youth Serum.  This product is excellent for me!  I usually use it at nighttime, before bed.  Once I apply a drop, with the dropper, message it into my face, neck and décolleté, apply my nighttime moisturizer, my face instantly feels nourished.  I wake up, and have soft, glowing skin.

 I also like Sunday Riley’s LUNA Sleeping Night Oil….This product is AWESOME!  During the summer this was the only treatment I used at night. ( NO moisturizer)  Technically, this is an OIL, but I use it as a serum in the colder months.  My face has never had a more radiant appearance.  

Just to be clear.. I do not use both products at the same time.  But I do like to switch it up, so my skin doesn’t get too use to one product.

You may notice that your face is a little or very different, once the seasons change.  This may be the time you can do the same, and Switch it Up!

Hey Aging, slow down!!

By May 4, 2018 Anti-Aging Gracefully

Age gracefully with these wonderful tips to help you

Getting older is something that we all hope we will do with style and grace. Aging isn’t the end of the world and if you do it properly, each new year can be the best of your life. Use the tips provided here to keep yourself feeling and looking young and alive:

Aging is a worry for many people, but can be slowed down by remaining healthy.

Daily exercise. No one hates to exercise as much as me, but once you make it part of your daily routine, it doesn’t feel like exercise. A healthy diet can reduce aging effects,  especially by drinking water. There are a lot of ways to make water more tasty, (I have a Soda Stream machine, and of course the favor packs) so drink up and stay hydrated.   Getting plenty of sleep and taking care of your skin is another way to make sure you reduce wrinkles. I love my facials, and rest!  Book your facial today.  Everyone ages, but that doesn’t mean you can’t age well!

One of the best things that you can do, in order to slow down the aging process in your body is to get your omega 3 fatty acids, and eat plenty of green leafy vegetables.

Special note: If you can, make sure you’re including a decent amount of fish in your diet. The omega-3 fatty acids that are most commonly found in fish have been shown to aid in skin development. This can keep your skin looking smooth and young much longer. If you’re allergic to fish, try omega-3 supplements.

Leafy green vegetables, particularly spinach, are rich in nutrients and antioxidants. This particular vegetable is packed with lutein which helps to keep your eyes sparkling white. This healthy vegetable is also a great source of vitamin B, C and E as well as potassium, iron, calcium, magnesium and omega-3 fatty acids. Swapping your normal lettuce for spinach will work wonders for your skin.

Be sure to protect your skin from the sun

Getting a bit of sun each day can be very beneficial but be sure to wear sunscreen while you do it. Overexposure can lead to wrinkles and even skin cancer. Taking care of your skin is vital to living a long and healthy youthful life.

Get enough sleep nightly.

It is said that each person needs an average of eight hours daily. Not getting adequate sleep can cause depression, heart problems, and more.

If you feel tired REST! Get the amount needed that’s right for you.

One of my thoughts on the biggest culprit of aging is the STRESS factor.  If you can, find a way to lessen the amount of things that you stress over, you are sure to feel much better about your life each day. Do not let the little things bring you down which can be detrimental to your health and age you quicker.

So, RELAX and find joy in life!
