First off let me just wow! I never thought that I would be excited about shaving cream, Until I discovered this brand.  I found it online and can not get enough of this stuff!  Do you ever have moments when your thinking to your self “Did I really just shave my legs for this?!” (I Know I do!) Well I have recently found a reason to want to shave my legs.  All the credit and motivation goes to this little product.  I bought it in the blueberry flavor.  Oh my gosh it smells so good that it makes me kind of want to eat it.

I know know.. it sounds silly! I’m just used to shaving being such a drying affair. But this product is an incredibly luscious surprise.  The thick whipped mousse helps you get a close shave and leaves your skin feeling soft smooth and hydrated.

SKIN CARE MYTHS
Beautiful-skin-model1

Are you approaching your skin routine all wrong? Here are some common blunders that could be sabotaging your skin complexion.

Myth:  A complete skin care routine must contain three steps.
Truth: Cleanse, tone, then moisturize have been drilled into our heads, but feel free to skip the second step. People think that toning oily skin will make it better, but the oil is protective and the body produces it in response to injury. When you strip your skin of all the oils, it responds by making more grease.
Myth: Over the counter products with Retinol work just fine.
Truth: Retinol is basically a mild vitamin A treatment that slowly absorbs into the skin and is eventually converted into Retatonic acid. (Retinol is a great ingredient for acne and anti aging.) The over the counter brands are not effective enough because the the Retinol oxidizes before it can make it into the skin.
Myth: Dryness causes fine lines.
Truth: People confuse dryness and flaking with wrinkles.  Just moisturizing will make wrinkles look better.  The lines are still there, but you wont be able to see them anymore.
Myth: You should use your mother’s eye cream.
Truth:  Everyone has different skin issues, so one size does not fit all.  If you have puffiness choose a gel (heavy creams can boost swelling.) with caffeine. If you have dark circles, look for a product with a lightening ingredient in it like vitamin C.
Myth: Leaving a mask on over night will give you more for your money.
Truth: Masks deliver a potent dose of active ingredients or moisturize quickly into the skin.  So you can over do it, causing irritation or breakouts.  Always use the product as directed.
Myth: Wearing foundation or a tinted moisturizer with an SPF means your being sun safe:
Truth: You need to wear an SPF of at least 30 on your face everyday.  So unless your slathering on a mask of makeup, your not getting enough protection.
Myth: the more wrinkle cream you apply the better the result.
Truth: Morning and night time applications are a waste of money.  Most active ingredients work well once a day and anti aging creams should be worn at night because the active ingredients are broken down by sunlight.
Also a big reminder that we all need to be better about wearing sunscreen! Using tanning oil with an SPF of 10 does not count!!!
Don’t forget to apply sunscreen to our neck and chest areas too.
DERMALOGICA HIT THE SPOT

Everyone has those days where you wake up with giant pimple on their face and it always seem to come up on a day that is important! What to do what to do?

Well I have recently found a fabulous pimple fighting tool! It’s called Hit The Spot from Dermalogica. It’s a concenctrated formula of benzoyl peroxide. You just put a little dot on the pimple and the product kills the breakout causing bacteria. Seriously over night it reduced the swelling dried out the pimple! my pimple was gone in the morning. It’s gentle, non greasy or harsh smelling.

There is one caution though because the product contains benzoyl peroxide  be sure to NOT get it in your hair, this will lighten it. It will leave a little bleach spot in your hair. (Benzoyl peroxide is one of the key indrediants in bleach) Other then that it’s great! Get some! Every one should own some of this.
