High Frequency Device: My New Skincare Obessesion

Hi Beauties!

I can’t wait for you guys to watch the video and learn about my new favorite device for not just acne or bacteria of any kind, but also for collagen production! You will learn everything you need to know from the video but let me just tell you, this is an aestheticians magic weapon and you should own one so you never have to suffer from a breakout that leads to scarring again. If you zap the breakout from the get go with high frequency, it will kill the bacteria, thus preventing it to get more infected. My zits now flatten out and go away within a day or so, so you guys really need this!

Watch the video and let me know what you think! I can’t wait to hear if you guys use one!

My Top 5 Anti-Aging Skincare Products (Celebrity Aesthetician Approved!)

Hi guys!

Skincare is one of those things for me that I am willing to spend time and money on because I want to have healthy and young looking skin for as long as possible. I don't want to feel like I have to resort to botox, fillers, and procedures in order to reverse the signs of aging early on. I am not opposed to “baby” botox or anything like that (tiny amounts of botox to basically help you from creating deep wrinkles while still allowing you to have movement and expression) , but I do think it’s smart to work on prevention with your everyday products! While they are not cheap, they are much cheaper than a face lift later on in life!

I have been seeing an aesthetician religiously since January and have noticed a huge difference in my skin and she has recommended the products in the video above. I happened to be using most of them from doing my own research but was glad to see I was on the right track and that I was in good company as she treats many celebrities!

Comment below if you use any of these products and if not, which products you do use and would recommend. I am always looking for suggestions!

The Best Foundation with SPF 50- I Use Everyday

Today were talking THE BEST foundation with SPF.

Okay so let me jump right into it since this is as straightforward as it gets. I knew about the company Avene for the last few years as I had seen in it French Pharmacies as well as The Beauty Collection Stores when I would shop locally. People always had great things to say about the line, but if I'm being honest, I think I was drawn to more aggressive skin care brands like Dr. Dennis Gross, because I felt like I needed lots of PEELING! ACID! REJUVENATION! 

Do you know what I mean? Of course, I will always love DDG, but there is room for other brands. However,  I'm picky and when I hear the word "gentle" I assumed that meant it wasn't effective. I had tried out one product from Avene years ago (Thermal water) and loved the way it felt, but wasn't in the position at the time to be able to refill items continuously (even though it is very affordable!). I didnt have the luxury at the time to pay as much attention to my skin plus I was younger so it wasn't asss pressing.

Welp, recently I was at an event for The Beauty Collection Stores 20th Anniversary and since I am an ambassador for the company, I got a one on one with an employee from Avene who gave me a mini facial. It was amazing, the products felt so refreshing and hydrating on my skin. I also had this huge gaping hole in my forehead due to me accidentally cutting myself, and it got infected and looked like a huge zit. The facialist cleansed my face, hydrated it, and after I was all good she realized I wouldn't wanna walk around with no makeup at the event due to my now huge blemish since she took off my makeup to do the facial. I asked her if she suggested a good foundation that wouldn't totally defeat the whole purpose of the facial and she informed me that Avene had one with SPF 50 that was super popular (how had I never heard of it?!).

Seriously you guys, I am so picky about the foundation and cover up I use and this is hands down my new favorite for a few reasons. 

-Spf 50. I like to know I'm covered when I step outside and not feel greasy, white and streaky, or chalky from other sunscreens I have tried.

-Smooth application. It goes on so evenly and looks gorgeous on. I kept getting compliments on how dewy and pretty my skin looked. Trust me you guys, this day without makeup on, it did not look pretty. The zit was so inflamed and red, but this compact completely covered it up.

-Melts into your face. The foundation somehow warms to your face and adjusts flawlessly. Its kind of a cream to powder except it doesn't get super powdery or dry looking. Just dewy and smooth.

-Coverage. The amount of coverage is amazing to me because it covers scars and zits like no other foundation I have tried. 

I love Glossier, Bobbi Brown, RMS, and Georgio Armani foundation as well, but these don't have all of what the Avene has. The Spf really tips it over the edge for me. It's so so good you guys. I linked it below with some of my other faves if you're interested!

I highly recommend it and would love to know what youre fave concealer/foundation is too! Comment below with thoughts or faves, I am always looking for great products!

The #1 Skincare Product You Must Use NOW

ceferulic.jpg

I have been modeling for the last 7.5 years, and at every job I always ask the makeup artist what his or her absolute favorite products are. I figure that these people, who get new and innovative products sent to them daily to try out, must have the most insight and experience on what WORKS. There are always makeup lines and products that tend to be mentioned over and over ("makeup artists favorite go to products" coming soon). As much as makeup artists tend to have their own favorites depending on what the desired result is, there is one product that is on the top of everyones skin care regiment. Drum Roll please....or just look a the photo... CE Ferulic by SkinCeuticals!!!! I cannot rave about this product enough. Here are my favorite benefits of CE Ferulic:

1. Brightness: The first thing I noticed was the instant glow my skin had after I dabbed it on. My complexion immediately changed and was brighter and visibly tighter. I kid you not! The reason I initially splurged on this serum is because my skin was looking dull and lifeless. Seriously, problem solved. There hasn't been one day I've gone without it in 9 months... I can't... I'm addicted.

2. Firmness: In addition to the immediate glow, my skin tangibly felt more firm and plump. I honestly don't know how it works so well! It just feels filled out and healthy! I love the immediate results.

3. Decrease in fine lines and wrinkles: Now don't get me wrong. I'm not saying I went from a 90 year old complexion to a wrinkle free face, but I did notice a decrease in the developing fine lines that I already had. Of course one cause for lines is dryness and lack of hydration in the skin, so the potent vitamin C significantly helps. 

4. Even skin tone and texture: This is a game changer! With my background in water polo, I naturally had sun damage and hyper pigmentation. CE Ferulic helped significantly with my overall texture and evened out my skin tone. 

I hate to waste money on expensive products that don't work. I will never suggest something that I haven't used myself and fallen in love with first hand. Beauty products are just too expensive to take that type of risk on, because it is a huge investment. I hope it helps to know that this is the number one product that has been suggested over and over to me by skin care professionals and makeup artists alike. It truly is that good and works!
