Please don't think I'm a total narcissist but I've been talking to a lot of blends about skincare and with this COLD weather I've seen some posts about it. Plus, SC is very vain and takes painstaking steps to care for her aging skin.
KIDDING! Beer is not my trick (however I do drink wine so prevention is key here)
OK, well I'd just come off the rainy slopes, but it's 5:00 somewhere, right?
In celebration of the fact that I'm about to completely change my regime for 2010 I'd thought I'd answer the question I was asked, "what do you do for your skin?" I hope you are ready for this..
1st I drink Votre Vu snap dragon (collagen in a bottle), tons of water (with cucumbers as I get sick of plain water), & Green tea (anti oxidants)
2nd I sleep with a humidifier literally pumping humid air/water onto my face (promise you'll still like me when this post is over?) Plus, I sleep A LOT.
3rd. If I can't ski to give me a healthy glow I do yoga or go for a brisk walk
4th I'll start when I first wake up cause this even freaks me out:
(after brushing my teeth-a whole other post trust me is my teeth regime) I tone with rose water, apply lumene eye cream and burts bees radiance lotion with spf 15-so I have sun protection for said walk or at least trip to bus stop before I actually wash it
If I'm puffy from salt (or whatever) I put cucumber eye pads on my eyes (which I refrigerate) while my tea water is boiling
In the shower I wash with skincueticals glycolic wash
vitamin c serum-let it dry
phyto serum-let it dry
Metro gel (for rosacia)
firming skin cream and eye cream
SPF 30 (all products are skin ceuticals so I'm going to stop saying it)
Throughout the day I spritz my face with borba skin spray to refresh
I don't wear make up-except the occasional bronzer, mascara and eyeliner for a party or photo shoot
I get facials ALL the time and see a derm (but after 2 botox injections I don't do that any more)
2x a week I apply a mask(Borghese mud, Skincuetical mud, Lanonlin Agg Tval egg whites or a moisture mask). Wednesday's I do a mini spa day in the shower, Sunday a full one in the bath-again a whole other post for this ritual
I take Juice Plus vitamins and have taken omega 3s
wash with exfoliating wash and dry with rough wash cloth
B5 hydrating serum
Finacea (for rosacia)
Night Cream (called A.G.E) and matching eye cream
Dermalogica multivitamin power firm on my lips
On lips throughout the day: blistex deep renewal (Q10), Murad energizing pomegranate, or Nivea rejuvenation Q10-several times a day
I'm sure I'm forgetting something but I hope we are all still friends now that you know how truly vain I am-I wasn't kidding! Tell me if you have any tricks. I'll be sure to add it. As you can tell I make plenty of time to take care of my face. Wait till I tell you the rest of what I do for my entire body!!!
PS Please don't tell husband as he'll start doing the math and realize all the boats he could buy!
