AHA/BHA Exfoliating Cleanser

I recently purchased the Skin Medica AHA/BHA Exfoliating Cleanser, and fell in love. This cleanser attacks every skin concern I have, without irritating my skin. I use this cleanser about 3-4 times a week, while the other days I use a gentle foaming cleanser.

This cleanser gently scrubs away dead cells using ultra fine beads that contain alpha-hydroxyl and beta-hydroxyl acids, which help improve skin texture and tone, and also helps minimize wrinkles. Because of the ultra fine beads, their is no skin irritation and is safe for ALL skin types. Yes, I said ALL.

Now, you are probably wondering what are these two acids that miraculously makes my skin flawless.

Alpha-Hydroxy (AHA)

-Lactic Acid, Glycolic Acid, Citric Acid, and Malic Acid

  • All these Acids help reduce the appearance of wrinkles and it also enhances skin texture ( which helps skin look flawless)

Beta-Hydroxy (BHA)

-Salicylic Acid

  • Helps exfoliate the skin, getting rid of the dead cell.

** Remember, because of both BHA and AHA acids in this cleanser, our skin is more sun sensitive and can easily sunburn. Must always apply a layer of SPF of at least 30 daily to protect from the sun.

This cleanser retails at $47 and can be purchased on Skin Medica website or a Dermatologist office.

Thank you and hope you are able to try this amazing product.

Kissable Lips

img_0119

It’s never fun having dry, rough, cracked lips, especially while trying to rock a lipstick.  Just as our face and body, our lips also require to be exfoliated and hydrated. Applying chapstick or lip balm helps with temporary hydration, but if we do not exfoliate, the lip balm will never truly help nourish the lips.

My go to exfoliate is Tartes lip scrub Tarte lip scrub, but there are many other products out there. The lip scrub helps getting rid dead cells, revealing softer lips and also prepares lips for a smooth application of a lip balm and or lipstick.

As daily lip hydration, I always apply a layer of Nicole Guerriero’s Best Damn Beauty lip mask Lip maskand a thick layer at night for an intense lip treatment. The lip mask helps restore  lost hydration and nourishing lips.

After exfoliating and applying a lip balm/mask, our lips will be softer and smother. Applying any lipsticks will look amazing.

Hope you give it a try and if you use any of these products or recommend any I should try, please comment below.

Thank you
