Day 25 of the #mayskinchallenge - Anti Haul - What I'm Going to Buy
If you haven't had a chance to watch Kimberly Clark's videos on YouTube, you must watch. She advocates being mindful of what you're buying, what you actually need and not falling for the hype. And she's hysterical .
.
Ingredients
Overtime I've experimented with a lot of different things on my skin. I can many times look at an ingredient list and have a good feeling about whether or not a product will work for my skin. So I have a list of ingredient loves, as well as ones I'm not so crazy about. There's nothing wrong with these, they just don't work for me
.
.
🚫 Glycolic - this is a fabulous acid, it's just not one for me. I experience too much sensitivity to it. I've found my skin much prefers lactic and mandelic, as well as salicylic if I'm feeling a little congested or it's in an acid blend 🚫 Hydroquinone - is a skin lightener and has been a gold standard in dermatology for skin lightening. When I first stated tackling my sun damage, I tried a few products with this. I found it made my skin more sensitive and lightened more than just my area of hyperpigmentation. So while this may work for some, it doesn't work for me
🚫 Texture - this includes scrubs or anything that has an inconsistent texture that I have to massage into the skin. .

Day 24 of the #mayskinchallenge - Warm Weather β˜€οΈ Drunk Elephant B Hydra Intensive Hydration Gel, a great lightweight hydrator
β˜€οΈ I typically use this in the am after my serum(s) and love to apply in conjunction with @jordansamuelskin Hydrate. My SPF doubles as a moisturizer so for me it's just enough hydration and moisture in the morning, especially when it's warmer. β˜€οΈ Anti-oxidants + Hyaluronic Acid + Non Irritating Extracts/Botanicals + Ceramides β˜€οΈ I think normal to oily skin types will love this. This gives hydration with some moisture (oily skins have moisture), but mostly hydration β˜€οΈ Thin, gel texture, similar to Sunday Riley's Tidal or Belif's Aqua Bomb, not greasy at all. What I like about this that the other 2 don't have is packaging - this is in a pump, whereas the other 2 are in jars. While this isn't full of actives, it still keeps my fingers out of a jar. And it's cute β˜€οΈ Background is from an article in a 1961 The Look magazine called "To Bikini or Not to Bikini" .

Good Morning β˜€οΈSince I worked over the weekend, today is my "Sunday", so I'll be doing a little #selfcaresunday on Tuesday β˜€οΈ Thank you to @hillhousenaturalsfarm for the amazing candle and reed diffuser. My home smells amazing! This luxury home fragrance brand is totally new to me and will definitely be doing some purchases through! β˜€οΈ The candle* is perfect for summer - Agave Citron - and has a beautiful woven casing. The scent is supposed to remind you of sunshine and air - grapefruit, prickly pear, cactus blossom, agave, desert amber. Smells so fresh! β˜€οΈ The reed diffuser* is Beach Wood - peach, orange blossom, saffron, moss, amber and sandalwood. Neither smell too artificial either. β˜€οΈ Thank you for all the kind comments on my jade roller video a few post back. I'm experimenting with some new things like that and so happy you like. Many of you mentioned wanting to see more on jade rolling so I'm looking into that! I purchased mine from @gingerchinyc through Amazon β˜€οΈ I think all 3 of these would make amazing gifts too!! *gifted.

Day 22 of the #mayskinchallenge - Ingredient ❀️ Copper!  Copper is something we are seeing more and more in skincare and for good reason ❀️ Copper peptides help with collagen and elastin production. There seems to be a big focus on collagen, but elastin is equally important. Loss of elasticity is what contributes to the appearance of fines lines, wrinkles and pores. It also acts like an antioxidant and aids in scar healing ❀️ NIOD CAIS - I've done several reviews on this polarizing product. People either seem to love it or well, not. Despite not always agreeing with Deciem's marketing, my skin loves this product. ❀️ IS Clinical Copper Firming Mist - I bought this to test as a dupe for CAIS. It is very comparable. Very. Is it the same for me? Not quite. I find I reach for this on mornings I'm in a hurry. Or I make it a point to use the CAIS when my skin needs some extra care. I enjoy and equally use both. ❀️ Do you need both? No, but I enjoy my options with 2 products I like. I just keep an eye on the 6 mo exp date on the CAIS and 12 mos. on the IS Clinical. ❀️ At this point you're probably asking yourself what I've noticed with my skin. It helps my skin behave. It's made my skin less reactive, and for someone with sensitive prone skin this is what I'm after. And I have noticed a huge difference in my skin when I've stopped using copper. My skin looks firmer and more even toned when I use it. ❀️ Do you need this? I can't answer that because I tend to believe that not everyone's skin responds to copper, like any ingredient. Do I encourage you to try? I do! It's possible that those who love these products just simply respond to copper, in general. ❀️ I typically buy CAIS from Beauty Bay and IS Clinical from Dermstore or PremierLook (with coupon codes) ❀️ Let me know if you've tried copper! ❀️ The background is from a 1961 article on the "it girl" look for each decade and this was the Gibson Girl .

Day 21 of the #mayskinchallenge - Self Care
πŸ’• Something I know most of us don't do enough of. It wasn't until I connected with this community that I realized how much it was lacking in my life and the true benefit of it. πŸ’• One of my fave things to do for a little self care is use my jade roller. Massage of the face in general aids in circulaton, lymph drainage, reduce the appearance of lines, wrinkles, pores.
πŸ’• The Jade remains cold when in contact with your skin and is very soothing. πŸ’• Jade massage has been around since the 7th Century and originated in China
πŸ’• This little video shows a little bit of the types of massage I do with my roller! I pick an oil, press it in, then massage away. One of my fave things to do is do this while watching TV
πŸ’• My skin is becoming pink in areas from the increase in circulation from the massage and the jade. I try to focus on moving the roller toward lymph nodes πŸ’• I got mine from GingerChi on Amazon and I love it. Super high quality πŸ’• Would love to hear if you use facial massage!

Day 20 of the #mayskinchallenge - Scent - Jane Scrivner OO Cream*
πŸ’• I'm not one to usually go for scents, as @morethanjustskin will tell you. But the smell of this cream is intoxicating. It smells so so good. πŸ’• One of the reasons I'm usually not a fan of scents in skincare is that it usually means the inclusion of fragrance. I'm not a fan of fragrance for the sake of fragrance in a skincare product. It can irritate the skin, even if you can't see it, so it can be counterproductive. πŸ’• I am very selective about the products I try with essential oils, because of my sensitive skin tendencies. But after hearing so many things about Jane's products, I was eager to try! And this was the product I was most excited about. πŸ’• The function of this cream is to lock in the facial oil and seal everything in. As someone who is particularly interested in skin barrier function and barrier issues, this peaked my interest! πŸ’• So does it deliver? Oh yes! I love this stuff. I look forward to applying this anytime I use an oil at night. The blend of oils and extracts make the most comforting scent. After applying I do a big jar inhale a la @tophcam with his beloved Blue Cocoon
πŸ’• You truly need the smallest amount. Investing in this will last you forever. πŸ’• What I find interesting about this is that it leaves a satin finish to the skin, so you could wear over a drier oil in daytime and later SPF and makeup over, although I have only used at nighttime πŸ’• My skin usually isn't crazy about shea butter or anything with coconut related, but my skin really likes this. It's a lesson in not all ingredients created equal
πŸ’• Jane's beautiful brand was completely unknown to me prior to hearing about through IG πŸ’• I will definitely be investing in the full size once I finish this sample
πŸ’• Sticking with my vintage inspiration, this is Twiggy, who like Jane is also a Brit! I thought the color of her dress matched the beautiful gold of the cream. *gift

Day 19 of the #mayskinchallenge - Wishlist
I've already posted my dream bathroom/vanity/"me" space for my post, but wanted to also share some of the products on my radar. Some of these I will eventually pick up, others are dream products. What's a wishlist if a girl can't wish?? πŸ’• African Botanics Rose Treatment Essence - this sounds absolutely heavenly. The ingredients look dreamy and I just want to bathe in this (don't worry, I won't, I haven't lost my mind). The $160 is a bit too steep for me for an essence/serum
πŸ’• Jordan Samuel Skin Etoil with Retinol - I can't wait to try this but need to finish up on my Skinmedica Lyteras, which I'm using to ease back into retinols (small amounts in this, used as part of their delivery system) before picking this up. Part of the #1empty1newbie concept  by @skinminimalist . I love the idea of a smaller retinol % but used more often, and in an oil form. I think this would appeal to so many skin types πŸ’• Indie Lee Squalene Oil - plant based squalene is made from olives. I love how this is rich in fatty acids, yet super light. I think this will be great for summer πŸ’• And then there's a big question - I feel recently like my skin is changing and evolving. Instead of running out and buying tons of new things, I'm being selective and watching, studying, seeing how my skin responds. So I'm not sure what my skin will need. I do know that I'd like to get a new second/am cleanser but not sure what just yet. πŸ’• If you have any recommendations, let me know! .

Day 19 of the #mayskinchallenge - Wishlist πŸ’• I decided to take a different take on this and post a place. πŸ’• My wishlist to have a space for me, all me, just me. A beautiful space with all of my favorite things. Fresh flowers, my skincare and makeup, perfume. A mix of modern with some vintage inspiration πŸ’• A place to get ready for the day, a place where I can unwind from the day. A place where I can feel pretty and indulge in some needed self care πŸ’• So I'm posting some #bathroomgoals today, and may post some products later in the day that I've had on my radar
πŸ’• Would love to see your dream bathrooms or dream spaces

Day 18 of the #mayskinchallenge -  Balm πŸ’• I decided to go with a balm cleanser, as I'm crazy about my newest balm cleanser!! πŸ’• Farmacy Green Clean Makeup Meltaway Cleansing Balm with Echincea GreenEnvy*
πŸ’• I look forward to taking off my makeup with this. It cleanses fully while leaving my skin hydrated. πŸ’• Emulsifies beautifully when water is added. No muslin cloth needed, rinses clean with your hands. I even went in with a cleansing cloth after (just to test) and all traces of makeup gone πŸ’• Packaging is adorable! I love the little spatula included and how it's safely tucked under the lid. And it smells amazing
πŸ’• A little really goes a long way and I think this could last you awhile with daily use (but y'all know I love to rotate).

Day 18 of the #mayskinchallenge - Balm I decided to go with a balm cleanser, as I'm crazy about my newest balm cleanser!! Farmacy Green Clean Makeup Meltaway Cleansing Balm with Echincea GreenEnvy* I look forward to taking off my makeup with this. It cleanses fully while leaving my skin hydrated. Emulsifies beautifully when water is added. No muslin cloth needed, rinses clean with your hands. I even went in with a cleansing cloth after (just to test) and all traces of makeup gone Packaging is adorable! I love the little spatula included and how it's safely tucked under the lid. And it smells amazing A little really goes a long way and I think this could last you awhile with daily use (but y'all know I love to rotate).

Day 17 of the #mayskinchallenge - Skincare Journey πŸ’• This is a pic of me on October 3rd, 2014. This was a common occurrence - me on the beach...without SPF
πŸ’• Don't let my lighter skin tone fool you - my skin can tan easily and I loved being tan. I felt that I looked "healthier" with a tan. I equated tan with beauty. I grew up on the beaches of Florida and "tanned and toned" was the ideal
πŸ’• I would spend hours in the sun. I would often go to the beach after a stretch of work days. The sounds of the waves and the warmth of the sun felt so relaxing, and this helped me unwind
πŸ’• I ultimately knew that sun protection was important but because I didn't burn, I wouldn't apply it right away, maybe after an hour. Sun damage was happening and I didn't realize it
πŸ’• The more I looked at my patients' skin, I could tell who had spent time in the sun unprotected, and who stayed out of the sun. I started to realize that I was prematurely aging myself and one day something clicked. πŸ’• I stopped going to the beach to lay in the sun. I found new ways to relax (exercise) and unwind (this community). I still go to the beach, but usually to exercise and the sun is just coming up. I go heavily protected as well. πŸ’• I also embraced my skin, my natural skin tone. I've worked hard to undo some of the damage. And I've found a supportive community that I love so much πŸ’• Sticking with the vintage theme, the second pic is me as a little girl at the beach with my mom

Day 16 of the #MaySkinChallenge - Anti Aging
πŸ’• Selfishly I picked this as the topic for today as it's my birthday and I wanted everyone's anti-aging tips. There's nothing wrong with aging, but if I can do it a bit more gracefully, I'm all in!
πŸ’• Colleen Rothschild Age Renewal Super Serum - Review
πŸ’• This is my second bottle and I'm half way through. I often reach for this in the am, especially when I'm in a hurry and need a Serum that back a lot of punch (antioxidants, peptides, aminos). I will also frequently combine with her Vitamin C Treatment Complex πŸ’• This claims to do a lot - address texture, dehydration, elasticity, fine lines, radiance and tone, which I think it does. πŸ’• It's a thicker Serum with a lotion texture, not silky so if you don't like silicone based serums, you may really like the texture of this πŸ’• I took a break from this when I had IPL in favor of my Paula's Choice Calm Serum but when I came back to this, it was magic. That's how I know I'll be keeping this in rotation πŸ’• One of the reasons I chose this today was because I love her line and her Friends & Family starts today - 25% off! Code FF25. The packaging of this, like all of her products, is beautiful πŸ’• The article focused on how beauty is fickle. The magazine, Look, predicted in 1961 that this would be the next "it" look. Anti Aging and the quest for beautiful skin won't ever be a fickle trend. .

Day 15 of the #mayskinchallenge - Oil. β˜€οΈ Jordan Samuel Skin Etoil
β˜€οΈ I'm not sure I've ever done a review on this, at least one that I could find. I need to start tagging mine like @lizalaskabeauty does β˜€οΈ If I could only use 1 oil and 1 oil only, it would be this - it's simple in its ingredient blend, but so lovely. This is a true example of the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. And that's that happens when Jordan creates products - its magic. β˜€οΈ I chose this for my first giveaway because I wanted a product that anyone could use, and this is it - all skin types can use this β˜€οΈ No essential oils, so even sensitive skin types could likely use this without difficulty. Features Sweet Almond Oil, Cranberry Seed Oil, Argan Oil, Marula Oil, Evening Primrose, Rosehip, Seabuckthorn β˜€οΈ Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate - my fave form of vitamin C; CoQ10, Vitamin E, Squalene
β˜€οΈ Ive used morning and evening, and alternate in my routines. I find myself reaching for this when my skin is feeling a bit dull and dry. Every time I use, I see a visible glow
β˜€οΈ Lately I've loved to apply @janescrivnerskinvare OO Cream over this and its heavenly β˜€οΈ This is old packaging (i buy backups), and the background is the Pompeian Plaza in Revlon's New York salon. It features this foot pool to soak their feet before pedicures, 1961 (The Look Magazine)
