Shield Your Youth

Youth Shield Organic Anti-Aging ProductsI can still vividly remember my best friend (who is ten years older than me) saying,

“You need to start using anti-aging creams…”

As a 17-year-old visually going on 12, you can imagine the massive eye-roll she received in response. I was too young, too busy and too broke! Not only did I ignore her valuable assertion, I recklessly exposed myself to three years of intense sun damage as a lifeguard, followed by six years of freezing, toxic Chicago air. All the while washing my face with… this is beyond embarrassing to admit… bar soap followed up with body lotion as my daily moisturizer. Eek! Luckily I married into a family of skin care professionals who showed me the way. However, my damage is done and unfortunately Youth Shield doesn’t come with a time machine.

Lesson learned. Anti-aging starts before you age!

Give your youth a fighting chance with our newest collection, Youth Shield! When creating this line, Éminence Organic Skin Care paid special attention to the needs of today’s version of me. They had the younger, budget conscious, busy go-getters in mind because it’s never too early to start thinking about age prevention. There are no time-consuming regimens or over-priced creams and the five items in the line range from only $38 to $68. According to the Vancouver Sun, “in just 28 days, natural ingredients like red currant, elderflower and magnolia bark increase skin hydration by 36%, enhance vitality by 11% and improve elasticity by 10%.”

The collection contains a powerful antioxidant complex, naturally derived from red currant, elderflower and magnolia bark, which is formulated to balance and protect skin while it fights free radicals—the leading cause of fine lines and wrinkles. The products in this collection are designed to nourish and balance while they protect. They are clinically proven to hydrate while improving skin elasticity and enhancing skin vitality. Prevent the signs of aging before they begin!

Éminence can’t make vanity more guilt-free than this. Or can they? If you’re still on the fence about protecting your youth or giving protection to a loved one, remember Éminence products are handmade in Hungary, never tested on animals, AND they plant a tree for every product sold. Go Éminence Organic Skin Care and Youth Shield!

You’re welcome 😉

Beauty Tips for Prom Night 2013

5 PROM Tips- Because I don’t like “Rules”

Eminence

#1 Skin, Skin, Skin

You want your glow to come from within so make sure your skin is in prime shape to enlighten them all. Be sure to drink plenty of h20 and treat your skin to a rejuvenating organic Eminence facial! Exfoliate to remove dead skin cells and dirt that can dull your complexion. My favorite is the Pear & Poppy Seed Microderm Polisher, it’s infused with Green Tea antioxidants. For a hydrating mask you can make yourself- mix a mashed banana, 1tsp. yogurt and 1tsp. honey! Your skin will look and feel delicious!

 

lipgloss

#2 Pick Your Point of Focus

Whether you want to hypnotize with a smoky eye or play up your cupids bow… pick your weapon to detonate some attention! Captivate with one area of focus and you’ll stand out above the rest. I’m obsessed with Jane Iredale’s Smoke Pallete that’ll give you numerous looks from boho chic to sultry. For lips: your allies are with the 3 musketeers: lip LINER, lip STICK, and lip GLOSS!

4 Unique Benefits of Mineral Makeup

skinDid you know that using mineral makeup has tons of benefits? If you’ve never worn mineral based cosmetics, you might not know about all of the skin enriching properties of mineral makeup that actually work! From being breathable to radiant reflecting effects, the advantages are endless. So ladies, stick with me and I’ll give you all the inside secrets into this natural makeup superpower.

1. Fantastic Coverage

Truth be told, there is a lot of controversy as to whether mineral makeup has the power to conceal and provide full coverage. This is a miss-conception! Dare to give it a try! I love using mineral make up to cover my clients’ blemishes, scars, discoloration, and even rosacea! Since they use pure pigment with no fillers such as talc, their amazing power to conceal and cover makes them the best secret weapon in your kit!

2. Protects Your Skin

Did you know that mineral makeup offers tons of protection from the sun’s aging rays? Mineral makeup is key in protecting your skin! Jane Iredale has earned The Skin Cancer Foundation’s Seal of Recommendation. To earn this seal a manufacturer must provide scientific data showing that it’s products sufficiently and safely aid in the prevention of sun-induced damage to the skin. With just a few swipes there’s no need to dread going out into the sun! This beauty gem has you covered.

3. Lightweight

With less than 5 minutes of time, you have light, airy, breathable coverage that’ll make your skin look angelic. Mineral makeup delivers a soft, light reflective, youthful appearance without ever looking cakey or feeling like your makeup is weighing you down. They form a protective barrier on the skin that allows it to breath and function without blocking pores. This is great product for that no-mess, no-fuss woman that’s ready to seize the day!

4. Anti-Aging! (Yes, worth an exclamation.)

As if the rest aren’t enough, did you know that mineral makeup is also packed with vitamins? Jane Iredale uses quality vitamins and antioxidants that are pharmaceutical grade and certified organic. The result? Younger, healthier, glowing skin! Not only is our skin the biggest organ of our bodies, it represents our experiences and reflects our character. Protect and project the real you!

So ladies, now you know why I use mineral makeup on my clients and myself every day. Nature’s beauty is all around us, utilize mineral makeup! It’ll be the best beauty secret in your makeup bag and you won’t be able to be live without it.
