Happy 2017! I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season. We’ve been working really hard to plan for the new year. I’m really excited for our upcoming improvements, initiatives, and projects. I’m starting the year of with a beauty series. Today’s installment is all about my anti aging skin care must haves.
One of my personal skincare secrets is my rather aggressive commitment to exfoliating. Over the years I’ve learned that using an exfoliator every morning keeps my skin looking vibrant. You may not need to exfoliate daily but including a facial scrub into your routine is something I highly recommend. Currently my regimen includes a daily cleanse with Laura Mercier’s Flawless Skin Face Polish and a biweekly treatment with Dr. Brandt’s Microdermabrasion Age Defying Exfoliator . As I’ve mentioned before, I also add baking soda to my cleanser once a week.
Exfoliating doesn’t stop with my face. In the last 6 months I’ve become obsessed with skin brushes. I use mine all over my skin every morning in the shower. I’ve even gotten in the habit of traveling with one.
Next up is a product I can’t live without. It’s Dr. Brandt’s Needles No More 3-D filler mask. It’s another product that I use every single day and I have it in stockpiles so I never run out. It gives an instantly visible lift to the skin.
As I approach 30 ( by approach I mean that it’s coming up in a week and I’m freaking out) I’m all about maximizing my use of topical anti aging alternatives before I feel the need to move on to more surgical ones. I’m really hoping I’ll be on of those women who ages naturally without intervention, but I’m also not opposed to considering a little tweaking as I get older.
What are your thoughts on aging? Are you open to treatments like Botox and plastic surgery or are you looking forward to embracing your age and everything that comes with it?
