Good Morning! I wanted to share with you my every day and night essentials for my skin. I am constantly asked what I use, so I wanted to post about it. Now, let me say, that I think most of my good fortune with my skin is hereditary. If you have been following my blog for a while, you might remember the post of my mom’s 75th birthday. If you are new, here it is. My mom has the most beautiful skin, but my dad’s skin is equally good, so I got really lucky in that department! So, here is the lowdown of my products.
First thing, I use Cle de Peau Beaute Gentle Balancing Lotion to freshen my skin, and remove any mascara that wasn’t completely removed from the night before. I love that I can use this around my eyes! It increases hydration levels in the skin, and contains an illuminating complex. Next, I use three drops of SkinCeuticals C E Ferulic. This is an antioxidant combo that delivers protection against photo aging, neutralizing free radicals, helps build collagen, and provides antioxidant protection. This stuff is like liquid gold! (must store away from light, and will turn dark after being exposed to air). Next, I use ERASA XEP30. This is a new product that has got the ALLURE Best of Beauty Award for being a fast acting anti aging lotion. It does a lot in a few weeks!!! This product is awesome!
If my skin is feeling extra dry, I will add a few drops of BIOSSANCE, which is a moisturizing concentrate with 100% plant derived squalene, before I put on my La Mer moisturizing lotion, which I mix with with a little La Mer Face Sun lotion (SPF 30). Last, is my eye cream, which is M-61 Hydraboost (I’ve used a ton of eye creams, and I have settled in with this one!) One more thing I do, before putting on my foundation, is I add a little Charlotte Tilbury Magic Cream (love this stuff!).
I remove my eye makeup with Neutrogena eye makeup remover, then wash my face with Cle de Peau Synactif Soap. This cleanses my skin, without drying it out ( I have very dry skin!). Then, I apply Tata Harper Elixir Vitae Ultimate Wrinkle Solution. Tata Harper is an all natural line, and I love the way the products smell (all of her products are great!)! Next, I apply La Mer Creme de la Mer (a tiny amount warmed in my hand and pressed on my face). Then, it’s the M-61 Hydraboost eye cream again.
I need to do this more, but about once a week, I use La Mer Refining Facial to exfoliate, and La Mer Intensive Revitalizing Mask. I know this looks like a lot of steps, but it takes two seconds. The other thing I know, is that these products are pricey, but I promise they last a long time. I probably only buy twice a year (except for the eye cream and the Skin Ceuticals C E Ferulic). I will tell you, that when I was going through chemo, La Mer Creme de la Mer is what saved my skin! Chemo dries everything out, and this was a life saver. I have not stopped using it! One more tidbit…La Mer The Concentrate was a lifesaver for my radiated skin. A lot of people use it for scars or burns. It’s expensive, but it sure does help!
So there it is, the price I pay to try and hold on to youthful skin!!! Have a great weekend!
