Skincare Tips For Women In Their 30's




Skincare Tips For Women In Their 30's, By Barbie's Beauty Bits

The age of 30 is when we start to see some changes in our skins appearance.  While I think skincare prevention and maintenance is essential at all ages, if you're over 30 and reading this and don’t have a skincare regimen, you need to get one!

For this post, I have partnered up RevivSerums.  They specialize in novel and innovative clinical treatment serums. Their unique formulations are next-generation, high-performance, cruelty-free and leading-edge to help you achieve a more youthful skin appearance.  So if you want to see how you can start turning back the time on your skin, continue reading.


Taking care of your skin in the 30s

...Begins with consistency, especially if skincare to you meant just washing your face and applying moisturizer. Your 30’s is when fine lines and wrinkles start to appear and guess what, they will only get worse if you don’t have a skincare plan.

Pay Attention To The Ingredients In Your Skincare Products

...more so looking for ones that will benefit your skin, not just clean and moisturize it!  Aside from wrinkles, as we get older, we also start to lose collagen!  When we lose collagen, our skin loses its tone, resulting in those unwanted fine lines and wrinkles! Ingredients like peptides, antioxidants, anti-inflammatories, Vitamin C, brightening agents, and a collagen stimulator can help.

This is where the Ultimate Serum from Reviv Serums, comes into use.  Aside from being an award-winning TNS Essential Serum® (NEWBEAUTY™ Beauty Choice Award Winner and InStyle™ Beauty Award Winner) by SkinMedica® / Allergan, Inc., the serum has 11 different products in one:

• A brightening product
• An antioxidant serum
• A firming and tightening product
• An anti-inflammatory
• A peptide serum
• A green tea complex product
• A vitamin C serum
• A sebum controller
• A collagen stimulator serum
• A growth factor serum
• A moisturizer and light emollient

As you can see, it’s the ultimate rejuvenator in a single serum.


How To Use: 
Apply a thin layer to clean, dry skin (face, neck, chest, and hands) once or twice daily. The Ultimate Serum is suitable for the upper eyelid orbital bone area, but avoid contact with eyes.  Finish by applying a moisturizer with an SPF.  A great moisturizer will help to plump up your fine lines and more, so never leave home without it!

In addition to selecting a great product, you need to make sure you are drinking plenty of water...

Proper hydration is essential for healthy skin, so hopefully this is something you’ve been doing for years!  When you add drinking plenty of water to your skincare regimen, it can help your skin to look plumper and minimize the signs of aging. Make it a habit of having a glass of water or bottled water near you at all times. IMPORTANT:  Once you realize you’re thirsty, you’re already dehydrated, and no one wants dehydrated skin, so plan ahead!

BONUS:  RevivSerums has stepped up and is offering all of my readers a 15% discount on the Ultimate Serum, simply use the code BBBLOG15 at check out.  And if that wasn’t good enough do we have something even better, a chance for you to win a bottle for yourself!

Good luck, and remember if 30 is the new 20, don't you want to look like it too?

Is Sugaring Better Than Waxing For Hair Removal?


Is Sugaring Better Than Waxing For Hair Removal, By top Beauty Blogger Barbie's Beauty Bits.

What if I told you there was an easier and less painful way to remove hair than waxing, would you try it? Well there is, it's called sugaring. A friend of mine is an esthetician and shared with me some great tips on sugaring, and I'd like to share them with you.

So what is Sugaring?

Sugaring is an all-natural method of removing unwanted hair, by applying a mixture of sugar, lemon juice, and water to the skin and then peeling it off together with the hair.
 
Ingredients:

The three ingredients in sugar paste are a lemon, sugar and water.  In addition to this being an all natural approach to temporary hair removal, there are also some other great benefits derived from the sugar and lemon.  Known for its naturally astringent qualities, ;emon is an excellent cleansing agent. Sugar is a natural exfoliant in beauty, ridding the skin of dead cells.  BONUS: You can also add honey to the mixture.


How To:
  1. Similar to waxing you need to make sure that you have not shaved for a few days as there needs to be a fair amount of hair in which the mixture will adhere to. 
  2. Start with a clean surface, make sure you have removed all lotions and oils from the skin. 
  3. Make sure you have created a thick paste consistency.  It should be applied warm. 
  4. Once you have made your sugar paste you want to apply the thick mixture against the direction of your hair growth. 
  5. To remove, simply peel back the sugar layer in the same direction the hair in growing. 
Benefits of Sugaring Vs. Waxing, By Barbie's Beauty Bits


Benefits of Sugaring Vs. Waxing: 
  1. Hurts less than traditional waxing.
  2. There is minimal redness, and if do have some, it fades.  
  3. You can apply the sugar paste to a larger area at once, as it does not harden like wax does.
  4. There are no chemicals in sugar wax.  Hence, it is perfect for sensitive skin.
  5. You can remove any leftover sugar easily, with just water and some soap.
Have any of you tried this before? Do you prefer it over waxing? Let me know!

Benefit calls this liquid product a supermodel in a bottle.  Benefits High Beam lives up to the name, as it gives you that beam of glow while creating a radiant, dewy complexion

Gel
