The Insider’s Guide to Sexy Skin

The Insider’s Guide to Sexy Skin

Summer is finally here! And it’s getting warmer outside, which means it’s possible that we may have to start showing some skin. Here are some ways to make sure you are showing sexy skin!

Insider’s Guide to Sexy Skin

Hey! Your epidermis is showing.

🤦‍♀️

But seriously, your skin is your biggest organ. Take good care of it! You already know that you start losing collagen and elasticity when you turn 25. So we should be doing everything we can to put our best skin forward.

Here are some tips and product recommendations for smooth and sexy skin. I would love to know if you have any additional tips, please comment below if you do.

Step 1: Exfoliate

Just like we are shedding our winter coats, we need to exfoliate to shed our dead skin cells. This will help us expose the sexy skin we want to show off. Exfoliation can help increase blood circulation as well.

You should exfoliate a couple of times of week – your face and your body. You don’t want to exfoliate too often as it may strip away some of your natural oils.

Here are some great benefits of exfoliating:

  • Reduce blemishes on your skin
  • Encourages healthy skin tissues to shine through
  • Unclog pores
  • Reduce dark spots
  • Remove ingrown hairs

Exfoliate before you shave: By exfoliating before you shave, you remove the dead skin cells that could clog your razor, which allows you to have a closer shave.

Exfoliate before you tan: To get the best tan – fake or real – spend a few minutes prepping so your skin is ready. First of all, let your skin soak in a warm bath for 20 minutes. Next, exfoliate and then shave with a multi-blade razor. Your skin will be prepped and ready to apply a premium self-tanner.

Step 2: Use Razor with Several Blades

When you shave without exfoliating, you are potentially clogging your razor with dead skin cells. So, be sure to exfoliate first.

Here’s why you should use a razor with at least 3 blades:

With a 3-blade razor, each blade was intended to serve a purpose:

First blade: hooks the hair follicle, pulling it up

Second blade: cuts the more exposed hair

Third blade: backup, ensuring nothing is missed.

I have been using the Dollar Shave Club for several years now. It’s so easy, the razors come in the mail. There are several similar companies like Dollar Shave Club, and all are good!

Here’s another option that I want to try! It’s called Flawless Legs, and it fits in the palm of your hand for an easy shave. Check it out on Amazon here.

Step 3: Moisturize

Help keep your skin young by moisturizing daily! I had a realization recently when my store bought lotions were causing my skin more harm than good. I was breaking out in weird spots. I had to replace every product I was using to figure out why I was having such strange breakouts.

Turns out it was the lotion I was using. Who knows if it was the alcohol or toxins in it, but when I switched to a non-toxic lotion, I started to love my skin a little bit more every day.

The lotion I use smells amazing and makes my skin so soft. This is the lotion you want for sexy skin! Check it out here:

Step 4: Oil

Now, seal the moisture in with body oil!

The oil that I love uses sweet almond oil. 100% Pure Almond Oil is a natural oil that’s perfect for nourishing and reviving any skin type. Almond Oil is easily absorbed and won’t clog pores, promoting clear, soft, healthy-looking skin. This natural skin-nourishing oil is ideal for the entire body. Almond Oil is a natural oil derived from pressed almonds. Vegetable-derived oils date back to Biblical times, when they were mixed with fragrant herbs to create traditional ointments.

This will take sexy skin to the next level by locking in moisture and improve the appearance of dull, lackluster skin to make skin look smooth and sexy.

Not only will have sexy skin, but you will also feel amazingly sexy by using this oil! Check it out here:

Step 5: Eat Right, Exercise, and Drink Lots of Water

This is one of the biggest tips for healthy, sexy skin. If you have a lot of issues with wrinkles, dry skin patches and more, take a look at the foods you are eating.

Drink more water. Ok, do you know how much water you should be drinking daily? Take your body weight, divide in half, and then divide by 8 – that’s the number of cups of water you should drink daily.

sexy skinThat is so much water. But, once you focus on drinking more water, you’ll start realizing the benefits of drinking water. You are supporting your healthy, sexy skin and your elimination organs.

Here are some helpful hints to add more fruits and veggies to your diet. 

Have you noticed that there are many ailments that can be cured just by drinking water? Headache – drink more water. Indigestion? Drink more water. Here’s a full list of the benefits of drinking water according to elementalbottles.com:

Increases Brain Power and Provides Energy.
Promotes Healthy Weight Management and Weight Loss.
Flush Out Toxins.
Improves Your Complexion.
Maintains Regularity.
Boosts Immune System.

Life-Changing Clear Skin Tips for Radiant Skin

Life-Changing Clear Skin Tips for Radiant Skin

Check out these clear skin tips and product recommendations for radiant skin. If you’ve made it through the teenage years and are still experience acne and breakouts, these steps will help you find the healthy, glowing skin you’ve always wanted!

My teenage years were a constant battle with acne. My dream was that once I grew past that stage I would have clear, perfect, flawless skin. Did that happen for you? Yea…me neither.

Back then I treated my acne with Proactiv – basically by using very harsh chemicals and something else that would bleach the crap out of my bathroom towels. Who knows what was in that stuff!

Turns out when we grow up and have things like mortgages, kids, and stress – our skin reflects all of that. Hormones play a huge role in our skin. But what we eat and what’s going on in our gut also plays a role, too.

Birth control pills are effective in what they are intended to do, but geez they can wreak havoc on other areas of our bodies, especially as we get a little older. Check out the side effects here. Decreased libido and eye changes, anyone? Initially birth control helped clear up my skin, but what other damage have they done since those early years?

If you are an adult looking for clear skin tips, you are in the right spot. There are so many simple ways we can take care of our skin!

Here are my first five tips for radiant skin, “Radiant Skin: 5 Unique Ways to Improve Your Skin’s Appearance.

I’m happy to share these clear skin tips – some of these you may not have considered! Plus keep reading for clear skin product recommendations. 

Clear Skin Tips #1: Clean Your Makeup Brushes

Ugh, I admit I hate doing this! But, when I think about how much I use my makeup brushes, I make a point to clean them once a week. It’s easy if you schedule a weekly time to do it. Like, every Saturday morning. Just clean your makeup brushes! You’ll be so happy you did.

Here are some reasons you need to always clean your makeup brushes from Blank Canvas Cosmetics.

Acne prevention

Whenever you use your makeup brushes, they are collecting everything that is on your face — namely, oil, dead skin cells, dust, and anything else clinging to your skin. This is a recipe for disaster (or rather, acne). Every time you use a dirty brush, you are wiping this disgusting combination all over your face, clogging your pores as a result.

Better color application

Dirty makeup brushes are also ineffective for applying color precisely. With old makeup caked on your brushes, you are unable to get the look you’re going for, whether that is naturally blended contour or a dramatic eyeshadow.

Maintain soft brushes

Dirty brushes become more abrasive and dry as they become more caked with product and debris from your face. In turn, this irritates your skin. Cleaning your brushes regularly keeps them soft enough to not cause damage to your face.

Avoid germs

Dirty makeup brushes are also a breeding ground for bacteria. Not only is this terrible for your face, it also is bad for your makeup products. Transferring all this bacteria to your products taints them, and what should have lasted you a year will spoil within months.

Longer lasting brushes

When you clean your Blank Canvas makeup brushes regularly, you are preserving them. The more frequently you clean them, the longer your investment will last.

Clear Skin Tips #2: Clean Your Phone

You’ve probably heard that phones are dirtier than a toilet seat. Imagine putting a nasty toilet seat on your face when you use your cell phone! Ugh.

Imagine all the places you take your phone. My kids are constantly using my phone and everyone knows that kids equal germs. It’s easy to think about cleaning it when my phone is sticky from my kids using it, but we really need to clean our phones more often.

You should clean with caution because cell phones and moisture don’t mix. Just wiping down with a microfiber cloth is great, but doesn’t always get all the bacteria off the phone.

Here are some tips from Apple on how to clean Apple products. You can find wipes that are specifically for cleaning cell phones on Amazon or make your own mix using rubbing alcohol and water. Just proceed with caution as too much water can definitely hurt your phone.

Clear Skin Tips #3: Shower After Working Out

While it’s important to cleanse and moisturize twice daily, it’s also especially important to shower after you work out. The sooner the better!

Take a shower not just because of body odor, but especially if you have acne-prone skin. The sweat you’ve accumulated during your workout could clog your pores with dirt and oil

If the opportunity to cleanse sweat from your skin presents itself, David E. Bank, founder of The Center for Dermatology, Cosmetic & Laser Surgery, is on the side of washing so that your pores do not become clogged with dirt and oil.

“There is no precise time that it takes for the sweat to block the pores,” says Bank. “The sooner you can shower, the better. Showering after exercise, especially if you sweat excessively, should be as essential to your routine as your workout for several reasons. The first is your hygiene: No one wants to smell you or your workout on you! Also, if sweat builds up on your skin, it will clog your pores, not allowing your skin to breathe. And if you have a cut or skin abrasion, sweat can get trapped in there and can cause an infection.”

Clear Skin Tips #4: Find the Perfect Shower Temp

I love a good, long hot shower. But they are so bad for my skin and my hair! It turns out taking a cold shower may be bad for your skin as well.

This is what one dermatologist has to say:

To get the right temperature for clear skin, you have to play Goldilocks. “Cold water tightens the skin’s pores, which doesn’t allow the natural secretion of sebum and acne-causing bacteria,” says Neil Sadick, MD, of Sadick Dermatology. “Whereas hot water opens pores and stimulates excess sebum production that leaves it prone to further irritation.” He claims the best strategy is to use lukewarm water in the shower.

Clear Skin Tips #5: Drink More Water

This one has to be said. Drink more water! Drink half your body weight in ounces. If you focus on drinking more water during the day with a goal in mind, it’s actually easier than you think.

Your body craves water. It not only needs it to survive, but it also needs to function optimally. Find a fun water bottle that will help you meet your goals!

Check out these tips to drink more water in my “Drink More Water Challenge.”

Clear Skin Tips #6: Get More Sleep

This one isn’t easy for parents. In a recent article, I talked about if you can’t get more sleep, get better sleep! I also include some product recommendations to help you achieve that.

It’s also recommended to sleep on your back.

“When you sleep on your belly, the side of your face resting on your pillow is squished for hours at a time. By constantly squishing your face each night into your pillow, you are causing creasing which can eventually turn into wrinkles. (Notice sleep lines each morning?)

Try falling asleep on your back. If you find it hard to stay that way, put a pillow under your knees, which will help you stay in place and not roll over onto your stomach.

Can’t imagine not sleeping on your belly? Consider investing in a specially shaped pillow that allows you to sleep on your stomach while protecting your skin from wrinkles.”

Check out the sleep patch here. 

I hope these clear skin tips help you find the radiant, glowing skin you are searching for!

New Year’s Eve Makeup

Before we get into the top New Year’s Eve makeup trends, let’s talk about some simple steps for everyday healthy skin.

Start with radiant skin.

Yes, I’ve been told, “Honey, you are beautiful on the inside!” Well…yes, of course, we are! But, I mean more like…consider your diet for healthy, radiant skin.

If you aren’t happy with your skin, consider your diet. You may be eating some common allergens like gluten or dairy that are causing your skin not to be as perfect as you would like to be.

Here are some tips to add more fruits and veggies to your diet. 

As a lady in my 40’s, skincare is a top priority for me. It wasn’t always a priority, so I encourage anyone older or younger than me to start today and take better care of your skin! It’s never too late or too early to get started. In fact, I recently wrote about this in an article titled, “Radiant Skin: 5 Unique Ways to Improve Your Skin’s Appearance.

New Year’s Eve Makeup Tips

Take a look at these tips and let me know in the comments if you have any to add.

Focus on One Feature

An age-old piece of advice stands true for New Year’s Eve. Pick one feature to focus on- eyes or lips. That doesn’t mean that you can’t have fun with both. It just means that if you are doing a smokey eyeshadow/liner look, go for a more neutral shade of lipstick. Or if you want to play with red lipstick for your New Year’s Eve makeup, stick to a restrained eyeliner.

Beware the Raccoon Eyes

It is so tempting to try out a smoky eye on New Year’s Eve. You can, of course, just be sure to proceed with caution. No matter where the night takes you, it’s going to be a late night (at least Midnight, right?!) If you aren’t used to smoky eyeshadow or cat-eye liner, take it easy especially with an ultra-black color that can smudge easily and make you look like a raccoon before the night is over.

Consider dark lashes and liner and more gold or metallic shadow. Keep reading to the see New Year’s Eve makeup trends where I’ve got some great recommendations for the perfect NYE eyeshadow.

Use your Normal Foundation and Moisturizer

You don’t want your skin to freak out on you when you decide to try a new color for your New Year’s Eve makeup. Use what you know already works with your skin. If you are looking for a longer-lasting foundation, try mixing your foundation with your moisturizer. According to goop.com, this will “leave a flattering, firming sheen, and make layering easier.”

Shine, Baby, Shine

New Year’s Eve makeup is meant to make you stand out and feel beautiful. Tonight is your night to shine! Whether it’s glitter or metallics, play up your eyes, lips, hair. Spray some of the glitter gel I mention below on your hair, shoulders, or decolletage. You are never too old to wear a little glitter (or a lot of glitter).

But, Only Shine in the Right Spots

If you have oily or combination skin, you know that you may see some greasy spots come through as the night goes on. Be sure to take along some blotting paper or powder to help combat an oily t-zone throughout the night. Be sure your New Year’s Eve makeup stays spot on.

New Year’s Eve Makeup Trends 2019

Here are the top makeup trends for you to try on New Year’s Eve.

 

Nude Lips

Like I mentioned above, if you are focusing on your eyes, go easy on your lips. This nude lipstick is great even for sensitive skin, plus has conditioners that will keep your lips soft and kissable when midnight comes around!

New Year’s Eve Makeup Tip:

Need a quick lip plump? Try this tip from Byrdie, “Trick your fellow New Year’s Eve partygoers into thinking you had a little work done by plumping your lips with a toothbrush. Wet your lips with warm water and then gently brush them in small circular motions with a clean, soft-bristled toothbrush. Fuller, softer, more naturally pink lips will be revealed. Lock in moisture with your favorite lip balm, and then apply a statement lip color to highlight your newly enhanced pout. This idea works perfectly for a New Year’s Eve makeup look.”

Gold EyeShadow

Gold is huge this season! But, no matter what color you go with, use this ‘Prime & Proper Eye Makeup Primer” before. This is great on a daily basis, but especially for your New Year’s Eve makeup look. It will prevent your eyeshadow from creasing or fading and allow your color to pop.

Check out this gold palette! You can create some amazing and unique gold looks for your New Year’s Eve makeup.

New Year’s Eve Makeup Tip: Byrdie has an awesome idea to help recreate a backstage look for NYE. ‘Even if you don’t possess any professional skills. All you need is an unexpected eye shadow shade and the Scotch Magic Tape (check price here) you used a few days prior to wrapping presents. Place a strip of tape at a 45-degree angle on the outer corner of each eye. Then, use a small brush to apply a bright cream eyeshadow. The tape acts as a stencil, keeping the shadow exactly where you want it. Bonus tip: Create the eye look first, and then you’re free to clean up any smudges with a cotton swab before moving on to the rest of your face.’

Lashes for Days

I tend to go with fake eyelashes for a big night out. These fake eyelashes come with an easy to apply tool, and I love that they are cruelty-free!

New Year’s Eye Makeup Tip: If you don’t want to use fake eyelashes but want super-plumped looking lashes, try this tip. Simply heat your eyelash curler and hold it under your blow-dryer for 30 seconds. After you make sure it isn’t too hot, use it on your lashes for more volume than ever. Then apply mascara.

Glitter! All the Glitter!

Your New Year’s Eve makeup look needs glitter! NYE is for feeling beautiful and standing out. Try this Unicorn Sparks Glitter Gel. The glitter gel is an aloe vera gel which has organic aloe leaf juice. There are so many fun uses for this spray-on glitter gel.

You are all ready for your night on the town with the perfect New Year’s Eve makeup! But wait! Do you have an outfit? Here are some of my favorites!

10 Simply Amazing Methods of Treatment for Wrinkles Around Eyes

10 Simply Amazing Methods of Treatment for Wrinkles Around Eyes

Looking for Treatment for Wrinkles Around Eyes? Check out these 10 simple treatments that will you deal with those wrinkles!


treatment for wrinkles around eyes Why is it that as we age, especially if we love to laugh and smile, that our skin seems to penalize us by turning those laughs into laugh lines?

If you are like me, you have a lot of expressions when you talk. My face always gives away what I’m thinking…often at the worst times.

The skin around your eyes is constantly moving, in fact even blinking causes 10,000 movements per day.

Smiling, squinting, staring at computers or devices too long can all cause laugh lines, crow’s feet, or any kind of fine line under your eyes.

The skin around our eyes is ten times thinner than the rest of the skin on your face.

Extra care should be given when you touch your eye area.

Be sure to use the ring finger to apply any cosmetics or moisturizers to that part of the face. Your ring finger is the weakest finger you have and won’t able to apply much pressure.

Why do we get Fine Lines Around Eyes?

The skin ages in two ways – biologically (Thanks, Mom) and environmentally (Thanks, Sun).

According to the American Academy of Dermatology:

  • Production of collagen and elastin slows down a dramatic 65% between ages 20 and 80.
  • The thickness of the skin decreases 6% every 10 years.
  • The sun causes 90%–95% of the wrinkles, lines, as well as brown, red and white discoloration on our bodies.
  • 90% of premature facial aging can be attributed to sun damage. This is why you’ll see me wearing a hat if I am outside!

Okay, let’s talk about the causes of wrinkles.

Is anyone else here a Martina McBride fan? ME! I’m literally one of her biggest fans. I was listening to “This One’s for the Girls” recently and this line hit close to home:

This is for all you girls about forty-two,
Tossin’ pennies into the fountain of youth,
Every laugh line on your face,
Made you who you are today.

Martina, if you are reading, I love you.

I’ve mentioned in a previous post that my skincare goal is to age gracefully.  The wrinkles are going to come anyway, but there are few treatments for wrinkles around eyes that you can easily do without using needles or injectables to fix them

Here are the top causes that lead us looking for treatments for wrinkles around eyes:

  • Hereditary
  • Age
  • You speak with lots of gestures and emotions
  • Hormonal disorders that lead to a violation of skin elasticity (for example, during the post-menopause in women, this skin defect begins to form)
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Lack of sleep
  • Too much sun exposure
  • Frequent stress
  • Smoking
  • The use of alcoholic beverages
  • Use substandard cosmetics
  • Use of unintended cosmetics for this area of the face
  • Rubbing various masks, creams or scrubs into this zone
  • Long work at the computer
  • Genetic predisposition

10 Methods for Treatment for Wrinkles Around Eyes

1. Drink more water

The skin around the eye is very thin and subject to dehydration. The BEST treatment for wrinkles around eyes is to simply drink more water. Here’s how to calculate how much water you should drink: Divide your body weight in half, then divide that by 8. That is the MINIMUM number of cups of water you should be drinking on a daily basis.

I challenge you to drink half your body weight in ounces daily. It’s tough to get used to at first, but then you’ll start to see some amazing positive results in your skin and the way you feel overall.

Tip: Get a fun bottle that you enjoy drinking out of. Something fun, fancy, or flirty will help encourage you to drink and carry your water with you wherever you go.

2. Wear sunglasses

This is a pretty basic treatment for wrinkles around eyes. Sun damage is the worst damage to our skin and causes 90 – 95% of wrinkles. Plus, the sun also causes age spots and other discoloration in our skin. Anytime you feel the need to squint or strain your eyes to see, you need sunglasses.

Bonus: Wear a hat for prolonged sun exposure. A big floppy hat that will cover your entire face is a great way to preserve your skin and reduce the effects of the sun.

3. Sleep on your back

Here’s a tip from Live About for a treatment for wrinkles around eyes – avoid sleeping on your stomach.

“When you sleep on your belly, the side of your face resting on your pillow is squished for hours at a time. By constantly squishing your face each night into your pillow, you are causing creasing which can eventually turn into wrinkles. (Notice sleep lines each morning?)

Try falling asleep on your back. If you find it hard to stay that way, put a pillow under your knees, which will help you stay in place and not roll over onto your stomach.

Can’t imagine not sleeping on your belly? Consider investing in a specially shaped pillow that allows you to sleep on your stomach while protecting your skin from wrinkles.”

4. Don’t touch!

What do you when you get tired from straining too long at the computer or when you wake up in the morning? You rub your eyes. Stop doing that! Rubbing and tugging in that delicate area around your eyes will only cause more damage. Remember this treatment for wrinkles around eyes – keep your hands off!

5. Use SPF

I understand that certain skin types have issues with SPF, but it’s so important that you find the right one that works for you. Daily SPF should be the first step for treatment for wrinkles around eyes.

Check out this premium SPF. It has a multipurpose formula provides critical moisture to the skin to hydrate, smooth and firm skin’s appearance while helping reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Unique botanical complex helps replenish skin’s natural moisture barrier, leaving it feeling soft and smooth. It has a long-lasting moisturizing formula helps maintain youthful-looking, hydrated skin. Plus, a broad spectrum SPF 20 sunscreen offers UVA/UVB protection to minimize the risk of sun damage or aging, if used as directed with other sun protection measures.

6. Face yoga

This is one of my FAVORITES when it comes to treatment for wrinkles around eyes. I discovered anti-aging face yoga on dailyom.com. DailyOM.com is an amazing website with so many classes. Prices start at $15 and you have lifetime access to each lesson from the class.

I have no affiliation with dailyom.com. I recommend them every chance I get. Take a look and you will find several classes that will likely interest you.

In this course, you’ll learn The Danielle Collins Face Yoga Method. In just minutes per day, Face Yoga accelerates a natural way to look your best and feel younger. It is a holistic practice which uses face exercises, face massage, acupressure and relaxation to help activate collagen production and muscle tone in your face. Regular Face Yoga practice helps your face re-attain its youthful look, making it a simple and easy method to rediscover the best version of you!

7. Skin Tightening Solution

As we age, the effects of time and experience become increasingly pronounced. Wrinkles and expression lines expose our age and significantly alter our appearance. Fortunately, we can help reverse the aged appearance by using powerful tightening and lifting ingredients in a remarkable topical treatment, that offers visually stunning results in an instant. An all-natural skin tightener designed for both men and women that results in immediate firming effects while promoting elasticity over time.

10. Consistency

Here’s the bad news, there is no overnight treatment for wrinkles around eyes that works instantly. Find a product that you like, use the entire line. Premium skincare products were made to work together, so you will be getting an added bonus if you use all the products.

Now, use those products day and night. It takes time to see results and you must be consistent. If you are ever too tired to go through the entire routine to take care of your skin, then simplify rather than skip.
