Do you ever look in the mirror and just feel like you need a little pick me up?
Skin looking a little dull? Eyes a little puffy? Lips a little parched?
Today’s post is all about instant gratification skincare.
Things you can do to look and feel better RIGHT NOW.
Think of it as an instant skin makeover.
Step 1. Begin by exfoliating.
Exfoliating with a product like At-Home Microderm, which contains the same corundum crystals found in dermabrasion equipment, will slough off dead skin cells to reveal the smooth skin beneath. How does exfoliating make you look instantly younger and more refreshed? It’s all about the way your skin reflects light. A rough surface will absorb light and draw attention to fine lines and wrinkles. A smooth surface will reflect light and diffuse fine lines and wrinkles. An added bonus is now that the dead surface skin is removed, your serums and moisturizers will do their job better through increased absorption. Win/win!
Step 2. Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate.
Skin dehydration can happen to anyone. Sun, wind, air conditioning, indoor heating and the use of drying products can zap the moisture from your skin leaving it looking like it’s desperate for a drink. Applying a serum with loads of hyaluronic acid (Replenish has 10%!) will plump up skin cells for a more youthful appearance. Skin will appear smoother, fine lines less noticeable and the overall tone of your skin will be improved.
Step 3. Relax.
The muscles around our eyes get a lot of use! Every smile, frown and squint causes the skin around the eyes to crease and crinkle. Did you know that certain peptides can help those muscles relax? When the muscles are relaxed the lines around the eyes are much smoother. A product like Eye Lifting and Tightening Serum that contains Acetyl Hexapeptide-8 and Matrixyl 3000, will help to lessen muscle contractions around the eyes for a noticeably smoother look. The eye area will appear lifted and toned. Products like these are an wonderful alternative for those who wish to avoid injectibles but would still like some muscle smoothing around the eyes.
Step 4. Plump up your lips!
How does an instantly perkier pout sound? As we age our lips begin to loose volume but you can plump those lips back up with Lip Plumper! Niacin and Hyaluronic acid spheres will instantly create fuller lips without stinging or burning. Additional peptides and retinyl palmitate will help increase lip collagen over time for a fuller look! Lips will feel moisturized and soft. Our clear formula (Sheer Delight) can be used as a nighttime treatment while our beautiful colours (available in 6 shades) can be used throughout the day.
