First Impressions

You only get one chance to make a first impression, so put your best face forward. Get gorgeous, camera-ready skin like Kate Beckinsale’s with a just a few products that guarantee a glow. To begin your skin regimen, start with a foaming cleanser that busts oily skin while soothing dry patches. Layer on an intense moisturizer that not only works against aging, but repairs the damage that’s already done. Of course, your eyes should get special treatment, so pick an eye treatment that moisturizes and combats puffiness for a bright-eyed look. The best medicine of all is preventative medicine: sunscreen, sunscreen, sunscreen! It fights aging, dark spots and skin damage. If some of these problems have already snuck their way on your face, finish with a gentle, yet thorough concealer under your eyes and on blemishes.

I always use a thick extremely hydrating face lotions. Multi-purpose magic! Kinara’s intense moisturizing cream is nothing, if not thorough. It targets problems like wrinkles, dehydration, and sun damage, while working a host of positive miracles as well. I slather this intense moisturizer on for a firmer, more youthful and luminous appearance. The best part is my face stays moisturized all day and my make-up goes over it like a dream.

Brighten Up Your Morning Routine! Just as you start your day with a glass of orange juice, why not incorporate this power fruit into your morning beauty routine? “Citrus scents lift your energy and mood,” says New York City dermatologist Dr. Bruce Katz. Not only does citrus make you feel better – it can actually make you look better. “When infused into skin care, it can improve the texture of your skin, fight wrinkles and clear out your pores,” says Katz. Double duty…triple duty…quadruple duty cleanser. What more can you ask of a cleanser? Just a warning….everyone love this cleanser.  My husband, who steers clear of all my beauty goodies and is very much a soap and water guy, tried this on vacation and now I need another bottle just for him.

Dr Smith’s Rosebud Salve is simply the best when it comes to lip balms. Slide on for lips that are naturally beautiful, supple, and softly rose-scented. Another huge fan of Dr. Smith’s Rosebud Salve?
