Holistic Skin Care For Him And Her

Skin 2 Skin Care - Holistic Skin Care For Him And Her
Beauty Brite Disclosure

As I approach middle age, skin care seems to be on my mind more and more. I don’t suffer from rashes, reddened areas, acne or overly oily skin. But, I have definitely noticed that it looks duller, is drier, and a little less elastic around my eyes. Also, thanks to a few sunburns back in the day, I do have some uneven skin tone to manage.

Increasingly I am paying attention to skin care regimens that offer a more holistic, natural approach to their product line ingredients and more eco-friendly manufacturing practices. I find it interesting that most skin care products are marketed to women, as though men don’t care about their skin. Well, maybe they don’t. But, I love that Skin 2 Skin offers a product line geared to human skin — all skin, regardless of skin type, gender, or age. Pretty cool, I think.

I tried a few of their products and I have to say that I found myself really consistently using them. I know. Surprised me, too!

I’ve bought many skin care products over the years, but after a few uses I often get lazy or forget I even have them. A recent afternoon spent cleaning, purging, and organizing my bathroom ended with a trash bag full of stuff — including a couple handfuls of those frangrance inserts from magazines, broken hair bands (why did I KEEP those?), nearly empty lip gloss tubes, and unsurprisingly more than a few old beauty products that got lost in the endless mounds of creams, cleansers, toners, hair masks, makeup, etc. that a bathroom can accumulate over time.

But, the Skin 2 Skin products are the only ones that I use consistently enough to garner a place on top, in full view, right next to the sink. And since I like a pretty minimal look in that area, that is really saying something.

Also important, they contain no parabens, sulfates, phthalates, or other harmful ingredients. They are certified vegan and cruelty-free. 

Here are the items that I’m using:

Skin 2 Skin Care - White Tea Face Wash

White Tea Face Wash, Hydrating Daily Cleanser – This one is used more than all the rest. White Tea is one of my favorite scents, hands down. It just has a clean, fresh smell that invigorates me. Which is why I also regularly buy the White Tea scent of liquid hand soap to have on hand for the million times a day that I seem to use it! 

One of the few makeup items I use daily is mascara. I hate a face wash that smears it around and requires multiple applications to get it all removed. This one gets it all the first time, with no lingering mascara residue to deal with.

Skin 2 Skin Care - Enzyme Renewal Mask

Enzyme Renewal Mask – As much as I love the daily cleanser, this one is just as great a product. It exfoliates and smooths my skin, leaving it feeling fresher and newer than before. Additionally, it also helps reduce redness and discoloration. And it contains antioxidants and vitamins to moisturize and hydrate skin. 

I don’t do spa days, but I have had facials at those home parties like Mary Kay and Avon or whatever and the way my skin feels after using this mask is very much like that. It feels like I’ve pampered myself, for sure.

If I had to choose only two items to have, the daily cleanser and renewal mask would be my choice. The other three I’m getting ready to talk about are great, too, though. So, you decide for yourself based on your skin’s needs which ones would be in your top two.

Anti-Sagging Renewal Serum – Featuring the PepStem4 Ultra-Lift™ Complex of Tripeptides, Dipeptides and Stem Cells, this one is astonishing in its ability to take the slacking skin on my forehead and, to some degree, under my eyes and make those vulnerable areas feel firmer.

It has really firmed up my forehead skin that seemed like it was starting to feel a bit less fixed in place. Like, you know when you wipe sweat off your forehead when it’s hot outside? I was starting to notice that instead of the skin staying firmly in place like when I was younger, it seemed like the skin wanted to drag with my hand a bit. This helps with that. Ditto under my eyes, where I’ve noticed in recent years that when I wipe under them with my finger that the skin wants to come along for the ride.

Revitalizing Eye Gel – I’m starting to get sagging under my eyes sometimes, occasional puffiness, and the beginnings of crow’s feet. In addition to helping reduce the appearance of aging this product just gives the skin around my eyes a much younger, healthier, tighter appearance overall. It’s really an amazing eye gel. Again, I’ve tried all kinds, but Skin 2 Skin is my favorite — by far!

And since my eyes and lips are the best features of my face, in my opinion, this eye gel might (on second thought) give the renewal mask or the daily cleanser a run for the money on being one of the two I’d keep if I had to choose. 

Aging Intervention Cream – Even if you weren’t interested in any of the previous cleansing or firming products mentioned, this would be the one I recommended as a basic, daily item that everyone could benefit from. Every one of us has to be out in the world daily, so everyone’s skin is affected by environmental factors ranging from sun exposure to pollutants. If you only try one Skin 2 Skin product, this one should be it. It’s a deceptively simple daily moisturizer that features a dizzying array of benefits.

It not only moisturizes, but also will reduce fine lines and wrinkles, reduce the occurence of blemishes, has anti-aging benefits, and supports overall more youthful and glowing skin. 

Seriously, there are too many awesome ingredients and skin issues that Skin 2 Skin products address for me to be able to do them any justice without droning on and on and on. But the gist is that they are a “science-based, natural plant powered formulation infused with essential nutrients, plant stem cells, multiple anti-oxidants and peptides” to not only renew skin and give it a more youthful appearance, but also to repair damage. — Source: Skin 2 Skin Care website

Moms- 4 Ways To Treat Yourself Better

I ask myself this a lot…what about ME? Moms are always giving to others, but you need to give back to yourself too. No one is going to take care of you, so here are some ideas/products to treat yourself better!

Drink Your Water

All my life I have heard…did you drink your water? No I’m not too fond of water, yes I get it I need it. But do I like it, NO! I try to drink plain water, but it just isn’t my thing. So since I need to be that example, I need water that has flavor. Being healthier is the number one way on how you can treat yourself better. Plus I can get my veggies and vitamins in too!

Unboxing:

Yep…flavored water but I’m also going to take it a step farther- water that gives me my daily dose of green nutrition plus tastes fantastic. I’m talking about AMAZING GRASS. They have tablets you put in water. By the way, Green Effervescent tablets are PERFECT for the mom on the go. You can get flavors that help with energy, hydrate, detox, and even beauty tablets.  

4 Ways Moms Can Treat Themselves!

 If you want to go all out and get on the drink water kick with me, then you need the Eff Your Water Kit which is terrific. You will get one branded glass water bottle with sleeve, five effervescent tubes including Lemon Lime, Energy Tropical, Hydrate Strawberry Lemonade, Detox Lemon Charcoal, & Beauty Pink Lemonade, plus fun collateral and one pack of Eff Your Water stickers!

All you have to do is drop an effervescent tablet into your drink, making it the most novel and convenient way to get a daily dose of green nutrition. The tablets are made with the brand’s proprietary alkalizing greens blend, including wheatgrass, barley grass, alfalfa, spirulina, and chlorella, plus more than 30 antioxidant superfoods to help support immunity.

They offer a variety of functions:

  • Detox is great for those that are interested in detoxification, especially after a fun weekend. It includes 7+ cleansing superfoods to support the elimination of toxins. 
  • Beauty can help you reach that glow you’ve been striving for with biotin, collagen, and reviving botanicals. 
  • Energy comes in handy for those that need a boost once the 2 pm slump comes around! One tablet contains 85 mg plant-based caffeine from green tea extract. 
  • Hydrate is comprised of electrolytes. It’s especially convenient for the people (mostly everyone) that forgets to drink half a gallon of water a day, especially with these hot summer days.

I love the fact I can have different flavors and it helps me get my water intake in plus my greens, antioxidants, and vitamins. Mama is getting her healthy on with all these healthy water tablets.

Take Care Of Your Skin

I’m in my 50’s and skincare is a big thing for me! It really doesn’t matter what age you are, taking care of your skin is definitely a way to give back to yourself. Every morning I take time to do a beauty routine that gets me in the mood for the day.

First, make sure the products you use don’t have a bunch of junk in them- you know they make your face greasy and then you break out- stop using those products. You want all-natural products that will have you looking clean, healthy and of course looking amazing.

My favorite brand is SOMA AYURVEDIC because it works!

But also it has all-natural- ingredients that come from the most biodiverse forests. It is plant-based and vegan which enhance and maintain natural collagen levels to keep skin elastic. My face is so smooth after I use SOMA AYURVEDIC! A skincare routine is a great way to treat yourself better.

I’ve been using the vitamin C serum, anti-aging cream, and under-eye gel for a couple of weeks now and OMG my face is looking so healthy. I don’t look like I haven’t slept in months and my face has a glow to it now. Even my husband who barley comments on how I look even noticed how healthy my face looks. Let’s just say I’ve been taking a lot more selfies, lately.

Create An Oasis

My Backyard Oasis

Home is where the heart is right…well it also is where everyone wants Mom to do everything for them so I created an area where I can go relax. I created a Summer Oasis for myself out in the backyard. What a wonderful way to give back to yourself- create your own space. Now it’s nothing like a SHE SHED but it is my space that I enjoy every day. When I need time away from the chaos of life and family I head to the backyard.

I’ve been wanting to do this for years by the way. But guess what never took the time to do it- not this year and I had help from Decocrated.

The Deoccrated Summer Box gave me the inspiration I needed to get my oasis started. Plus it was really fun getting a box full of decor items that are colorful, functional, and perfect for the summer. The summer box has a hostess with the mostess vibe going on and I love it. Colors are amazing and I’m digging the tropical theme- who doesn’t like Flamingos.

4 Ways Moms Can Treat Themselves!

The art print can be framed and reused in the home. It also has two sides so you can utilize both prints and change up the decor.

The apron and napkins can be used year-round since they are my favorite colors. Omg…you need to check out Pinterest for fun things to do with a cloth napkin. My husband thinks the apron is for him but no way it is way too pretty for him to wear it while BBQ’ing but I sure will rock it at my many summer parties.

4 Ways Moms Can Treat Themselves!

The box art can be displayed inside too. Create a relaxing oasis on your bookcase too. I love to feature it on our wall outside for now. Which also features the wood plaque. The plaque has two sides and this plaque definitely will be hung inside by my desk after summer.

4 Ways Moms Can Treat Themselves!

The HELLO hook will be hanging by the front door soon- but for now, it’s outside holding the cute TIC TAC TOE travel game.

My daughter and I play this game almost every night outside. By the way, you can also throw this game in your beach bag for a day trip. Tic Tac Toe is a fun game to play, no matter what age.

The vessel can hold all kinds of items outside and inside- think bills and stationary. Outside it holds the napkins, utensils, and seasonings. I can use this vessel for so many things in the house.

4 Ways Moms Can Treat Themselves!

The lantern is my favorite item in the box because I’ve always wanted one. It is outside now and holds candles. When I bring it inside I might use it for a plant that has an ugly vase.

Thank you Decocrated, pronounced (DECO-CRATED), a new quarterly (seasonal) home décor subscription box for my inspiration for creating an outside summer oasis for me to unwind and relax. The box has over $200 worth of items that you can use all year round and is priced under $80. Love this deal.

Eat Cookies!

We all need cookies in our life, right? How about a cookie that is healthy? What the heck is a healthy cookie- well CompletEats is a plant-based grab-and-go cookie that is gluten-free, vegan, 7 grams of protein, full of Omega-3s and fiber. See healthy.

4 Ways Moms Can Treat Themselves!

They have three flavors: Cherry Almond, Mocha Chip, and Chocolate Chia. And each cookie has 6-7 ingredients and all are sourced in California. Since I live in California I knew I had to try these cookies. Healthy cookies are also a cool way to treat yourself better!

Each cookie has 7 grams of protein, full of Omega-3s, and fiber. CompletEats cookies are perfect for before and after your workouts and will keep you full and energized throughout the day.  Now that is a cookie- that is recommended with exercise.

See it’s not all healthy stuff but fun stuff to treat yourself!

MOM’S you need to treat yourself better and I hope you think about some of these products or ideas to create a happier and healthier you!

Since we are on the subject of MOMS…please read Cool Updates for Mom

Give Your K-Beauty a Super Fruit Upgrade

Give Your K-Beauty a Super Fruit Upgrade
Beauty Brite Disclosure

Every now and again a surprise package shows up at my door. It makes me feel like a kid on their birthday. You can imagine my excitement when FaceTory unexpectedly sent me their Lux Plus box to review. Because I had so much fun with their March 7 Lux Box, I couldn’t wait to try out some new Super Fruit infused K-Beauty products.

Get Your Super Fruit Glow On
K-Beauty Super Fruit_Facetory Lux Plus Box

When I opened my Lux Plus Box, I was intrigued by array of products. We have a full size cleanser, serum, and konjac sponge, as well as three sheet masks, and a mini hand cream set. All of which feature super fruit botanicals as part of their ingredient lists.

In addition to the products, the box also comes with a handout guide that provides details about each item. I especially like the key ingredient and direction sections.  It is a nice, helpful bonus.

The Lotus Jeju Botanical pH Balancing Cleanser
Super Fruit The Lotus Cleanser

One of the first products I gravitated towards was The Lotus Cleanser. I’m a sucker for beautifully designed packaging like the one featured on the cleanser box. I was also intrigued by the key ingredients of Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract and Nelumbo Nucifera Leaf Extract. I had a sneaking suspicion I was going to love this cleanser thanks to my previous use of aloe vera based products. They are so hydrating and nonirritating on my sensitive, dry skin.

My instincts were correct. This gel to foam cleanser leaves my skin balanced and free of impurities without feeling stripped of moisture. It’s so gentle and works exceptionally well with the konjac sponge.

Dr. Lola Jeju Nature Cleansing Tool
K-Beauty_ Dr Lola Konjac Sponge

Like the aloe based cleanser, I’ve also used a Konjac Sponge before. It’s such a unique tool. Made from the konjac root, the sponge naturally cleanses and exfoliates your skin. While it’s ideal for acne prone skin, it can be used on all skin types because it very mildly exfoliates and removes dirt and oil.

K-Beauty Super Fruit_ Cleanser and Konjac Sponge Use

I use it once or twice a week to help give my skin an extra boost of dead skin removal and cleansing. You can use the sponge alone or add a cleanser to it. I like to pair it with The Lotus Cleanser for a nice super fruit treatment. Once I’m done, I rinse out the sponge and place it in a konjac container I have from Julep. This helps keep it protected and from drying out.

Puregen Multi Collagen Power Lifting Serum
Super Fruit Puregen Serum

Next up in the land of super fruit, we have the Puregen serum. I don’t know how I lived without serums before incorporating them into my skincare routine. They really do make a huge difference, and this serum is no exception. It’s both lightweight and very nourishing.

Puregen Super Fruit Serum Use

With key ingredients like Hydrolyzed Collagen and Opuntia Coccinellifera Fruit Extract, my skin gets a boost of hydration, as well as anti-aging and anti-inflammatory benefits. My skin absolutely loves this serum, and I love how soft and nourished it feels all day and all night.

Super Fruit Sheet Masks
Super Fruit Infused Facial Masks

As I mentioned above, in addition to full size skincare products, the Lux Plus box also comes with 3 sheet masks. This time I received the Ariul Juice Cleanse Mask 2x Raspberry Lentil, Huangjisoo Centella Repairing Mask, and the FaceTory Let’s Talk Vitality Mask. I enjoyed treating my skin to all three.

First up, I used the Centella Mask, which features Centella Asiatica and Tremella Fuciformis Extract. These ingredients help heal and protect, while also brightening and evening out skin tone. The mask does have a strong floral, fruit scent, but it’s not so overpowering that it makes hard to wear for the suggested 15-20 minutes. It fit my face well and left my skin feeling refreshed, hydrated, and very soft.

Next, I used The FaceTory Let’s Talk Vitality Mask.  This mask features Punica Granaturn Fruit Extract and Shea Butter. These ingredients help soften the skin, while also delivering anti-oxidant rich properties that help reduce the signs of aging.

K-Beauty Facetory Mask Wear

Of the three masks I tried, this one was my favorite. I like the thick consistency of the mask, which helped it adhere well to my face. It was also very cooling and left my skin feeling soft and hydrated and looking plump.

Finally, we have the Ariul Juice Cleanse Mask. This unique mask features a nourishing Raspberry and Lentil filled essence, which helps your skin fight off free radicals. The essence also works to brighten and tighten skin, while increasing hydration.

Though it does take a little more effort to mix the essence with the mask, it’s also kind of fun. I did have some issues getting the mask to align and adhere to my face. While the mask was soothing, it did feel a  little intense on my skin. However, I did love seeing how glowy my face looked after I took the mask off.  

Duft & Doft Mini Hand Creams Set
K-Beauty Mini Hand Creams

Finally we have the super fruit packed mini hand cream set. As someone who can’t be without hand cream, most of the time, I am happy to have these in my collection. I keep one in my purse and another in my car.

The set includes four hand creams in four different scents. There is a nice range of fruity, floral, and musky, which I like. What I appreciate most is the texture. Formulated with shea butter and collagen, all of the hand creams are super hydrating without being greasy. I especially appreciate this when I’m in the car. I know I can apply my hand cream and not have to worry about my hands sliming up the steering wheel.

And bonus, they also help to reduce the signs of aging. I really like this because your hands are one of the first parts of your body to show age.

I’m so glad FaceTory sent me their Lux Plus box to try. It’s an affordable way to try unique K-Beauty products. I’m really loving the Super Fruit theme of this box and the results I’ve experienced with all the products.

Get Plumper Lips with MESOLYFT LIPS

I’ll be the first to admit that I’m pretty skeptical and nervous to try beauty tools that will plump your lips. I have full lips, so a product like this isn’t meant for me. But, that’s okay, I wanted to see if it works. While the brand offers multiple micro-needling products, for this review, I’m testing out a lip plumper tool from the MESOLYFT Line.

About the Product

This particular product is the MESOLYFT Lips, which is a lip plumper that offers hydration and fuller lips for a more youthful appearance. 

Active Ingredients

  • Diisopropyl Dimer Dilinoleate: Skin-conditioning agent and emollient
  • Phenyl Trimethicone: Silicone that makes lips feel silky and soft.
  • Mango Butter Dimer Dilinoleyl Esters/Dimer Dilinoleate Copolymer: Derived from Mango Butter and Rapeseed oil, this natural ingredient provides outstanding shine and substantive conditioning
  • Aloe Vera Leaf Extract: Natural ingredient that moisturizes skin and calms irritation
  • Glycine Soja: Natural ingredient rich in antioxidants preventing damage to collagen and elastin

The PR package came with instructions:

  • Cleanse the area and pat dry
  • Pump serum onto the wheel
  • Press wheel firmly against the skin, but don’t drag it
  • Roll the wheel up and down five to six times
  • Reposition the wheel and roll side to side five to six times
  • Rinse roller with warm water, shake off excess water and let dry without covering
  • For best results use nightly*

To use: Roll over the entire lip and around the lip line. Instantly plumps lips and smoothes fine lines. After three to four weeks of continued use, there’s a noticeable long-term smoothness.

Product Review

I’ll admit, it took me a good week before I started using this. I’ve never used a product like this, nor have I ever plumped up my lips. So of course, there’s a little hesitation. I haven’t been using this for a month, but I have used it enough to form a review.

I’ll admit, it was a little tingly at first, but nothing painful or uncomfortable. I have bad allergies and sensitive skin, so I was relieved that I didn’t have a bad reaction. While my lips didn’t look plump or full, it did an amazing job and smoothing out my lips. I typically suffer from dry lips, and this made them feel soft and smooth. 

Overall Thoughts

While products like this may scare some people, I do think it’s worth trying out if you’re looking to make subtle improvements to your skin. I’m enjoying this so far, and I can’t wait to see how my lips look and feel after the four weeks. 

I’m having great results, that I’m starting to look into the brand’s MESOLYFTEYES since that’s another area that needs work. When it comes to products like this, I definitely recommend speaking with a spa professional, but the results are there. And for me, it was well worth it.

*It’s recommended to start three times a week and increase with tolerance

Aging Gracefully

Aging Gracefully -- Tru Niagen
Beauty Brite Disclosure

So, I guess I might be considered by some to be middle-aged. But, in most respects, mid-forties doesn’t seem to be markedly different than the mid-thirties for me. The only thing I’d say that is noticeably different personally is that I seem to have a little less energy overall. At this point in my life, aging gracefully is pretty high on my radar, for sure.

When I was younger and had an idea about something I wanted to do there seems to have been more follow through. Life is give and take, where I had a little more physical energy when I was younger and tended to sit still less often I am now more likely to be still enough to choose projects more thoughtfully and intentionally.

So, here’s the give and take — when I was younger I did more things that required physical exertion, but now that I’m older I’m accomplishing more projects that require stillness. Like writing projects. Like planning things more thoroughly. Like starting crochet or knit projects and actually finishing them. Like actually trying more recipes where I used to just collect them thinking someday I’d get around to them.

Give and take. I’d say it’s a pretty essential skill for aging gracefully, in my opinion. Because nothing is sustainable long-term in life. You don’t have optimal energy from day one to the last day. You don’t have maximum intelligence all the way through. You don’t make the absolute best decisions.

I tend not to view a successful life in terms of having the best of everything or being my best self every moment. We all need those times when we just let it all go and give ourselves permission to be less than perfect.

But, do not mistake me for a slothful quitter. No, I do keep my ear to the ground to learn about new products and technologies that make life better, healthier, and more enjoyable.

Since decreased energy is a bit of a thing for me, I thought I’d share something I found that might help to address this issue. Tru Niagen™  from ChromaDex. It’s a dietary supplement, much like the daily vitamins many of us take to support good health. It contains 150 mg of niagen (vitamin B3).

Aging Gracefully - Tru Niagen

Tru Niagen™ is a form of vitamin B3 that combats aging by improving cellular health and increasing NAD levels in living human cells. NAD is important in how cells use energy. As we age, the stresses of daily life begin to deplete our body’s stores of this important coenzyme.

Aging Gracefully - Tru Niagen

WHAT IS NAD?

Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD) is a coenzyme found in every living cell. It’s essential to every cell, but especially to those with mitochondria. That’s because mitochondria are “the powerhouses of the cell.” Mitochondria depend on NAD to convert food into the energy our cells need to stay charged and functioning at their best.

Source:
Tru Niagen™

So, I’ve been taking Tru Niagen™ for a few months and (aside from a couple of periods of having head colds or stomach flu) have noticed that I do feel like my personal energy levels are higher. I do deal with low blood iron and low vitamin D that contribute to my decreased energy levels. So, I continue to try to address those issues as well.

But, lifestyle changes like adding a multivitamin, eating healthier (or trying to, at least), and adding Tru Niagen™ to my daily routine seem to be having a positive effect. One of my first thoughts upon waking up in the morning used to be wishing I could turn around and just crawl back into bed for more sleep, even if I’d gotten a solid seven or eight hours of sleep. I don’t find myself doing that anymore. Also, most kinds of physical activity that required energy used to make me cringe since I knew I’d tire and want to stop, thus potentially leaving the entire project undone if I never went back to it. That seems to be something that I’m not having to deal with as much now, either.

Aging Gracefully - Tru Niagen

I am very encouraged regarding the effects of adding Tru Niagen™ to my daily routine. Because I, like most people, want to age well and remain intelligent and productive as long as possible. Anything I can do to try to have a good quality of life no matter how old I live to be is worth it. I still have a lot to look forward to in life and I want to be healthy enough to enjoy and appreciate all of it!

Obviously, I make no health or safety claims about using this or any other health supplement. If you are interested in this or any other product, please first take some time to do some research and to consult with your physician, as well.

Do you suffer from lower energy levels? What are you doing to address those concerns?

7 Days of Sheet Masks

Beauty Brite Disclosure

A girl’s gotta treat herself and her skin. One way to enjoy a little skin indulgence is by using sheet masks. They allow me to give my skin a boost of hydration, help clean out those pores or reduce signs of aging in about 10-20 minutes. This time I’m staying “Golden” (and glowy) with the FaceTory March 7 Lux Box. And what better way to try out these K-Beauty favorites than with a 7-days of Sheet Masks challenge.

Most of my adult life I have suffered from acne. Because I frequently mess with my face, I also have acne scaring and enlarged pores. To be quite honest, my skin sucks. I often jump on bandwagons to try the latest craze or switch from one top ranked skin care line to the next trying to find relief from painful, cystic acne.
