Are You Comfortable In Your Own Skin?

I don’t know about you but from head to toe I am feeling uncomfortable in my skin…. With winter, comes that dreaded dry, scaly, itchy uncomfortable skin. Much like changing your wardrobe seasonally, you should do the same with your skincare! I change my regimen up every season- because my skin changes with the weather & especially the humidity! Right now I am lathering up with these “must have” moisturizers.

From left to right – I am in LOVE with mybody’s MYhero Ultra Rich Growth Factor creme because of its anti-aging growth factor components but even more than that, how rich and emollient it feels on my skin – it’s UN-describable!

Next up is another mybody product  called Calm After The Storm Soothing Treatment.  I love this product for those who like a serum rather than a creme or lotion feel.  This product hydrates, soothes and provides loads of hyaluronic acid to give you hydrated youthful skin but in a serum form instead of a creme.

Last but not least…  AND new to my daily regimen-  ZO Skin Medical’s Daily Power Defense.  I love this anti-aging daily moisturizer for my everyday moisturizer under my make-up.  It is medical grade in its ingredient makeup and it does the job of hydrating but not feeling too greasy under my makeup! If you would like to purchase this guy or have any questions contact me at; kelley@kelleyknows.com.

For the rest of my body, I have had a love affair with  Kiehls Creme de Corps Soy Milk & Honey Whipped Body Butter.  By far the most silky, luxurious, hydrating feel ever!!!

Hope this helps you to feel comfortable in your own skin this winter!

I’m Back…. and with some tips!

With summer behind us and winter quickly approaching, it’s time for us Moms to prepare for the cold weather and all that it entails. Aside from making sure that the kids have snow gear for our infamous “snow days”, we have to be sure to take care of ourselves.  In my world, that begins with your SKIN!  Maintaining your daily skincare regimen in the winter is even more important than you think.  The cold winter air lacks humidity and dries up the natural oils in your skin, often resulting in dry skin.  The frigid winter winds can cause dry chapped skin as well.  But if you’re new to creating a skincare “routine” or often just can’t find the time to dedicate to it, I’ve got you covered.  I’ve listed my top 5 general skin care tips to get you through the winter.  Consider them your recipe to beautiful skin!

 

5 Skin Care tips to get you through the cold, dry Winter months:

  1. Switch your cleanser to a soap-free Gentle Cleanser. I love & use MyBody’s Clean Routine Foaming Cleanser for the winter months. Your skin will feel clean and luxurious without the risk of stripping it of its essential oils that help to protect it from the harsh, cold winter weather on a daily basis.

  1. Contrary to the popular belief that you should ditch your scrubs/exfoliators over the winter months, you should actually continue to use or add one to your regimen. By including a gentle exfoliator, it will help to remove the build-up of dry skin.  This is important as dry skin can block the moisturizing agents from penetrating the skin.  Using a gentle exfoliator will ensure proper hydration as well as stimulating collagen reproduction! Don’t go crazy. Once a week is perfect! I use ZO Skin Healths exfoliating polish to manually exfoliate over the winter months 1-2 times a week.

3. Serum, Serum, Serums are my winter obsession! I love to layer on   my serums under a great moisturizer!  A quick overview as to why serums are elite in the Winter skin care category:  They penetrate deeper and their liquidy format can hold a higher percentage of active ingredients than a moisturizer can.  So in return, they deliver many more benefits while actually plumping up cells and locking in moisture. My serums of choice are Calm After The Storm and Brightamin C from MyBody & Zo Skin Health Ossentials Growth Factor Serum Plus.

4. Come Winter, I also switch out my summer lightweight moisturizers for heavier moisturizers that include humectants & emollients.   My moisturizer crush right now is MyBody Ultra Rich Anti-Aging Growth Factor Cream.  This beauty attracts and holds onto water with peptides, and hyaluronic acids, fights aging with growth factors and leaves your skin feeling soft and hydrated.  During the summer months, I tend to lean towards lightweight moisturizers but rest assured, dry, Winter weather calls for stronger reinforcements☺

  1. If you’re not a “more the merrier” gal like myself when it comes to products, here is a simple winter tip that is not time consuming.  Treat yourself to a weekly hydrating MASK. Since I am clearly a fan of the MyBody line, currently I am using their Glow Forward Thermal Probiotic Enzyme Treatment Mask.  This mask softens and exfoliates dull skin without being abrasive and your skin instantly appears brighter, clearer and more radiant.
