I feel like we have been traveling so much this year and I feel like my skin needs more love than ever! So I am doing a skin care post today since I have been getting a lot of emails about skin care and what my favorite products are and you know I always have to tell you guys whenever I find new tips out about skin care or make up or anything because I find it all so interested and helpful and just want everyone to know! Usually three times a year I will go see a master esthetician at a medical spa (I have been going to Spa Trouve as of late) to have them analyze my skin and tell me what my skin needs and what products I should be using. I feel like my problem lately is WRINKLES. Oh my I am only 23 I know, but I want to prevent as much as I can so I can age well.
I think the time to start preventing wrinkles should be in your twenties – early twenties is recommended. The one thing we should all be doing (besides the obvious, staying out of the sun as much as possible) is Retin-a !! Retin-a has so many benefits I really can’t name them all – it will help with scarring, help with cell reproduction (important for aging), helps retain collagen, helps big time with clearing acne, and is just amazing. I pretty much just apply it on my whole face (not my upper lip because it makes my lips peel or within an inch of my eye) and I sleep in it! It will make your skin a little peely at first and it could have redness as well, but if you stick with it and stick it out during that peely stage, your skin feels baby soft and brand new! You have to get this at a medical spa or from a doctor though 🙂 So to answer your guy’s question of my favorite skin care product, that is it for sure! They also recommended using the Skin Medica TNS essential serum – which I haven’t gotten yet but will definitely tell you all how I like it!
Today I have a giveaway for you, Spa Trouve is giving away a $150 gift card to their spa!! This is so so amazing because you can go have your skin looked at under a UV lamp and they can tell you what you need! From there you can use your $150 to get a chemical peel, some new amazing skin product (definitely recommend picking up some retina-a!), or you can just choose to get a nice, relaxing facial – or both!! I think its so so so important to take care of your skin but it can be expensive so this is perfect 🙂
To enter to win your $150 giftcard to Spa Trouve all you have to do is like them on Facebook, here, and then comment to let me know you did that! Easy peasy.
*Unfortunately Spa Trouve is only located in Utah and will only be open for readers in Utah or if you plan to come to Utah 🙂
