There was something about turning 30 that made me become super obsessed with my skincare regime, specifically as it comes to anti-aging (there's probably fodder for an entire other post in itself there), and then more recently, using only products that are as natural and healthy as possible. As I mentioned in my last post, I've been making an effort to replace all my skincare, toiletry and cleaning products with items that contain natural ingredients and not any endocrine-disrupting chemicals that could make their way into my system. So in case anyone else is interested in making similar changes, I thought I would share the current products I am using and loving in case that could be helpful to you as well.
Since natural, wrinkle-reducing, and skin-firming products are my current priority, these are the products (and devices) I've been using and why I love each one:
NuFACE Trinity with Wrinkle Reducer Attachment. I learned about this product after working with NuFACE as a client of my company's, and realizing how amazing it is after being trained on it. It's a personal microcurrent device that helps to tone and firm the skin on your face, as well as reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, in a safe and non-invasive way. You can see an immediate difference in your skin's tone right after using it, and it keeps getting better after long-term use as well. Maybe someday I'll be brave enough to share my before and after pics of using it (maybe).
Kerstin Florian Multi-Vitamin Facial Sunscreen. I got this in a gift set from a friend but have loved using this on my face. Smells and feels great and isn't too heavy or greasy.
Arcona Peptide Plus Set (on Nordstrom Anniversary Sale right now). I understand this is a very high price tag to pay for an eye cream. But I had Nordstrom notes and have been looking for a SERIOUSLY good eye cream that delivers results, and the head of skincare at Nordstrom Fashion Island totally sold me on this one. And I have to say I truly love it. It's magical both in how it looks and how I can see an instant difference in my under-eye wrinkles immediately after using it. Plus the extra Peptide Hydrating Complex that came with it during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale (happening now) was an added bonus as well.
Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse Dry Oil. This also came in a gift set to me, but I have fallen totally in love. It's a dry oil you can use on your face, body, and hair, and the smell makes you feel like you're on vacation in the south of France, while the oil makes your skin and face feel so incredibly soft and moisturized. There's something extra luxurious to me about using this product, and I absolutely prefer it to any other type of body lotion I've used before.
Tata Harper Skincare Products. I was given some samples for these after hearing someone else rave about them, and I am in love. The cleanser, the toner (hydrating floral essence) and the resurfacing mask are heavenly. And again, use all natural ingredients. My skin feels incredible after using these and I can see this becoming my go-to skincare brand.
I'm continually trying to refine and simplify my skincare routines, and have lately felt like I've finally gotten in a good groove. I would love to hear any products you can't live without, and hope this list might have been helpful to you!
