Smelling, Feeling and Looking My Summer Best

Since moving to the West Coast- (San Francisco to be exact) a few months ago, a lot has changed….my style, my beauty go to’s and my overall lifestyle!

Jan Marini Skincare

Not only has it been a good change, but it has also opened me up to trying new products and incorporating them to my beauty regimen.

Upon getting here my skin was so dry from the weather change and of course being outdoors more often, so that’s when I discovered Jan Marini Skincare. Located and manufactured in the Bay Area, I knew I had to try this local favorite!

 I’ve been using her products the last few months and just can’t get enough!

I cleanse with her best selling cleanser-the Bioglycolic Face Cleanser, it gently cleans and exfoliates my skin as I’m active and outside most of the time either walking, hiking or sweating at the gym daily.

The Rejuvenate & Protect  kit includes the C-Esta Face Serum and the Antioxidant Daily Face Protectant. It is my favorite because it’s so light and refreshing and features just the right amount of  Vitamin C and sunscreen protectant that goes well under my makeup. The HA Activating Complex Serumis their newest hyaluronic acid product that is taking a 3-dimensional approach to restoring skin hydration and youthful volume. I love the way it feels on my skin after it has been cleansed and I’m bare faced (which I prefer)!

Immune Perfect by Frownies

Trade in the brown spots and fine lines for a radiant glow with Frownies’ NEW Immune Perfect Eye Wrinkle CreamEnhanced with natural ingredients: caffeine, pomegranate and green tea, this anti-aging serum helps to eliminate the appearance of dark circles, fine lines, and eye bags. Sounds too good to be true….but a three week study revealed that Immune Perfect Eye Wrinkle Cream can significantly reduce the appearance of baggy under eye, as well as dark circles!

These organic ingredients in the cream keep your skin looking refreshed:

Green Tea: Exceptionally rich in Proanthocyanidins, green tea plays a key role in boosting hydration and protecting the eyes from environmental damage while diminishing the appearance of dark, unsightly circles under the eyes.

Pomegranate: Considered a superfruit, this natural ingredient provides immediate tightening and lifting benefits that help reduce the appearance of sagging and wrinkles.

Aspen Bark Extract: High in natural salicylates, this 100% natural, preservative alternative has the added benefit of pore refinement and acne control.

Aloe Vera: With over 75 different nutrients that help provide wound healing and anti-inflammatory properties, this ideal ingredient reduces inflammation while acting as a protective layer on the skin.

Keep your eyes looking years younger and aging gracefully!

Abella Skin Care-Cellution C

Introducing Abella Skin Care’s one product answer to anti-aging – Cellution™ C. This product known to be “liquid gold” is a topical Vitamin C serum for your face and body. I use it on both! Developed by CEO and Founder Eliana Belmonte, DDS – she created Abella Skin Care product line with the philosophy of returning to the simplicity of good basic skin care, with the ability to create customized skin care programs for any skin type, or ethnicity. Abella Skin Care specializes in sun protection, topical serums of vitamin C and cleansers.

Cellution™ C: Contains 12% Vitamin C (L-ascorbic acid), the most stable form of Vitamin C on the market today! New technology for stabilizing high concentrations of L-ascorbic acid has made it possible to deliver more vitamin C into the skin topically than ever before. Can be used for the body or as a face mask/oil. Just mix the Cellution C with your favorite moisturizer to see skin glow or apply generously to your face as a mask. You don’t even have to rinse off and can be worn overnight for even greater results and smoothing.
Vitamin C provides many benefits to the skin:

  • Protects against UV radiation and free radical damage
  • Reduces erythema (redness)
  • Stimulates collagen production improving skin tone and elasticity
  • Helps control inflammation
  • Diminishes hyperpigmentation and neutralizes free radicals for smooth, youthful skin
  • Our unique base, Glycerin, an emollient moisturizer that holds moisture into the skin
  • Cucumber extract soothes and hydrates to reduce redness and inflammation

Traditional treatments for those who are acne prone, pigmented, experience Rosacea and sensitive skin, can easily be addressed with the Abella line. This new movement in skin care is geared toward a more “acid-free” system, which allows for more nurturing of the skin, instead of using high active ingredients, that only keep your skin in a constant state of irritation. Try it today!
