Fall Skincare For Puffy Eyes 
The last year and a half it’s been all about the eyes. Preventing and treating under-eye issues has been on the rise. That's right; our eyes are taking center stage, but are your eyes ready to be the center of attention?
 
Mask wearings and the Zoom meetings forced many to look at themselves with unfavorable lighting and awkward angles, noticing some features that make you look older than you are, like puffy eyes.
 
And Dr. Brandt No More Baggage Eye De-Puffing Gel is here to the rescue.

Within minutes you will notice a tightening effect as it smooths the under-eye contour to visually minimize the appearance of under-eye bags and dark circles for an immediately brighter, well-rested look. And the best part no needles!

BONUS: This product is a DEAL OF THE DAY, Tuesday, October 19th

Stop Looking Tired In Photos
I do not know about you, but another thing I've noticed is how fatigued my eyes have been looking in photos lately. And what better than some caffeine to perk me up! And this goes for caffeine in beauty products too. Yep, GLAMGLOW Bright Eyes Illuminating Anti-Fatigue Eye Cream is infused with caffeine to energize and revitalize the eye area.

This fast-absorbing cream works on all skin tones to energize and brighten under and around the eye for a well-rested look. It also has some other "perks" like...

  • Illuminating spheres brighten dark circles

Ha, what the perfect name for something that can help while on Camera...A cult classic for over a decade, this best-selling vegan mascara lengthens, curls, volumizes, and conditions, acting like a push-up bra for your lashes.~Yeah!!!

Another reason why I love this Tarte mascara that can be found at Macy's as is it has a 2 in 1 wand that helps to curl and add volume! Plus, the key ingredients are an unexpected bonus.

  • Rice bran wax: wax that helps lengthen the appearance of lashes

Must-Have Hair Product For Fall Found At Macy's
Many people do not know that dry shampoo provides some amazing volume for the hair. To give my hair that extra volume boost and to have my curls and blowout last longer, I turn to my all-time favorite dry shampoo Klorane. This product formulated with organically harvested oat milk offers an ultra-gentle yet powerful cleansing action to rid hair of excess dirt, oil, and odor, with no white residue. 

This 3- piece set is the bomb as it provides options and is perfect for travels over the holiday. And if you are a newbie to the brand, you can see which Dry Shampoo formula is best for you. 

best-dry-shampoo-klorane-by-barbies-beauty-bits

  • Dry Shampoo With Oat Milk helps to soothe and protect with ultra-gentle Oat Milk.
  • Dry Shampoo With Nettle Extract is fantastic for controlling excess oil in just 25 seconds.
  • Detoxify the scalp and refresh hair with Aquatic Mint. This one removes impurities from the scalp while absorbing sweat and oil; menthol, camphor, and essential oils provide an instant, fresh, cooling sensation.

IMPORTANT: There has been some controversy over dry shampoos. This is because many are not using them correctly. The rule of thumb should be that you use dry shampoo on the day before you plan to shampoo your hair. This will prevent product build-up and hair loss. Personally, I prefer to use them on the day I shampoo my hair as it helps give my hair volume and helps prevent oil instead of using it after when your hair is already dirty.

The 411 On Face Serums With ItCosmetics Bye, Bye Serums

The 411 On Face Serums With ItCosmetics Bye, Bye Serums

What is the 411 on face serums, and what does ItCosmetics have to do with it? For starters, face serums are the recipe for the perfect skincare routine! So what makes a serum the must-add ingredient to the perfect skincare routine? What are the benefits? Why do I need to add ItCosmetics Bye, Bye Serums to my skincare routine?

Well beauties, Barbie's Beauty Bits is here to answer all of those questions and more with my 411 On Face Serums And ItCosmetics Bye, Bye Concentrated Derma Serums, developed by plastic surgeons.

SCROLL TO BOTTOM OF PAGE TO SHOP DEALS

What Is A Face Serum

For skincare to be effective, it needs to have active ingredients. That is where face serums come into play as they are more advanced, targeted, and formulated with significant amounts of active ingredients to focus on a specific skincare need.  

Serums are packed full of beneficial skin-replenishing and skin-restoring, anti-oxidant formulations. And because they are generally lighter than your traditional face creams, they can penetrate your skin deeper, where they need to be to make a difference.

What Is The Best Face Serum To Add To My Skincare Routine

We know this is a common question and can be a bit frustrating. Various serums on the market perform different skincare duties, ranging from hydrating and anti-aging to skin brightening, making it feel like you need a special degree to decipher what serum you need to add to your skincare routine.

The biggest takeaway is to understand that serums are designed to deliver high concentrations of specific active ingredients to the skin to address a particular skincare issue. Hence depending on your specific skincare concerns, you may need more elevated amounts of these beneficial skincare ingredients to help you say bye, bye to problems like dullness, lines, pores, and dark spots.

Bye, Bye Skincare Issue With These Serums From ItCosmetics
Rarely does anyone have just one skin concern. Usually, we’re trying to address a few while ensuring our skin stays wholly balanced at the same time and avoiding the ouch burn from mixing the wrong skincare products. The trick is to find the right serums (preferably one suitable for all skin types, even sensitive) that work best together to do precisely that, and  ItCosmetics is doing just that with their Bye, Bye Serums. With the help of dermatologists’ expertise, each of the serums contain high percentages of active ingredients proven to drive visible results!

This serum skincare line comes with four different concentrated derma serums, so there is a serum for you depending on what you want to skincare concern you want to say, bye, bye too! 

best vitamin c serum by barbies beauty bits

ItCosmetics Bye, Bye Lines Serum
Mark Twain said that wrinkles should merely indicate where smiles have been. Thanks, Mark, but I prefer to age like fine wine. And this bye, bye serum for fines lines and wrinkles is here to help.

Aside from facial expressions and the years of birthdays, other causes can lead to wrinkles like free radical damage, dehydration of the skin, and a loss of volume. Itcosmetic's bye, bye line serum is concentrated with 1.5% hyaluronic acid, which helps plump and smooth the feel of skin while giving the skin a hydration boost. Plus, the serum contains peptides and is vitamin B5 infused to improve skin bounce back and softness.

Say Bye, Bye To Dullness In Your Skin With This Holly Grail Ingredient

So what is dullness in the skin? This can sometimes be hard to describe, but I explain it like this. You ever woke up and looked at yourself in the mirror, and you look like you aged ten years overnight?

Dull skin tone is the cause resulting in your skin losing its natural luminosity because of dryness, lack of hydration, built-up dead skin cells, damaged cells, loss of collagen and elastin, and the slowing down of cellular turnover. Giving the skin a dull, lackluster, older appearance, the radiance of younger-looking skin seems to.... poof, be gone. So what is this holy grail ingredient, vitamin C serum, my beauties!

Itcosmetics Bye, Bye Dullness Vitamin C Serum
This is my favorite serum in Itcosmetics Bye, Bye Serum skincare line as it has high concentrations of Vitamin C. When it comes to perking up tired, dull skin, it's time to call in a better reinforcement from one of my favorite active ingredients, Vitamin C.

Vitamin C ranks among the best active ingredients in serum and is so loved by dermatologists. It is an excellent source of antioxidants that protects the skin from free radicals. It dramatically improves radiance and helps prevent collagen loss in the skin; in other words, a sleeping beauty waking up to looking young and glowing again.

A serum like the IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Dullness uses a potent concentration of vitamin C (15 percent, to be exact) cocktailed with vitamin E, so the skin gets the Tadju Mahall experience with nourishing properties that actually make your skin look healthier.

In only a week's use, I've seen a dramatic change in my skin tone due to the higher concentration of Vitamin C. Most over-the-counter skincare products are much lower, which is why it can take months to see visible effects with the human eye.


the best glycolic acid serum barbies beauty bits

ItCosmetics Bye, Bye Pores Serum
Unfortunately, you can’t physically shrink your pores, but you can assist in how they look. What?? Yes, that is one thing I learned from an esthetician friend of mine, Pila from Heaven On Earth Day spa.

Her suggestion is the first step in managing your pores is always to keep your skin nice and clean! That means no falling asleep with makeup on or skipping that cleansing routine, and make sure to double cleanse. Why? Because having a clean face helps to prevent blackheads and clogged pores, which only enlarges your pores.

A serum like the IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Pores uses a high concentration of glycolic acid, 10% to be exact, which helps to gently exfoliate skin and break down that “glue” that holds dead skin cells together that clogs the pores. Combine that with hydrating hyaluronic acid, and you are ready to say “BYE BYE” to the look of pores with this serum.

ItCosmetics Bye, Bye Dark Spots Serum
With summer coming to an end, many of us are left with sun damage, including dark spots, aka photoaging.

Did you know that photoaging accounts for 90% of skin aging? Yes, you read that right. And the worst part is our actions have caused this! In layman's terms, it is the damage caused by repeated exposure to ultraviolet radiation from artificial UV sources, UVA, and UVB rays. Some of the signs of photoaging appear as wrinkles, age spots, loss of elastin, and collagen.

Ever hear the expression, "Nothing looks better in your 50's than sunscreen in your 20's." That's because most of the damage we see in mature skin is cumulative of bad habits we developed in our 20’s and 30's, which will significantly impact how old your skin will look (chronological age) when you are older.

If there is a magic potion that can reverse photodamage and protect the skin from further damage, it is an anti-oxidants. Not only are they super anti-inflammatory, but they're also excellent at neutralizing, repairing, and preventing Free Radical damage.

the best serum for dark spots by barbies beauty bits

The easiest way to get your dose of antioxidants is to look for skincare products enriched with them, like ItCosmetics Bye, Bye Dark Spot Serum. This dark spot serum uses ethyl vitamin C, a stable version of this traditionally unstable ingredient, to target discoloration directly. Combine that with 4% niacinamide, and this hyper-pigmentation serum can visibly reduce dark spots and discoloration while helping improve your skin’s clarity. Get ready to say “BYE BYE” to dark spots. More even-toned skin is here!

Can I Pair The Serums
As you've seen above each serum is uniquely created to address specific skin concerns when used alone, but when these multi-functional serums are paired with one another, they become a powerhouse, helping you to achieve the healthiest of skin.

I will say if you have sensitive skin, you may want to do some patch testing, as it can be irritating to the skin.

Terrific Texture
Enjoy the benefits of vitamin C and glycolic acid. Your skin will look terrific in a week; mine did! Because glycolic acid supercharges vitamin C's benefits by sloughing away dulling skin cells. This will prep the skin for the holy grail ingredient, Vitamin C. Not only will it accelerate cell renewal, but it will leave your skin looking smooth and radiant.

4 Different Types Of Liposuction Available Today

4 Different Types Of Liposuction Available Today Written By Barbies Beauty Bits

Learn More About The Different Types Of Liposuction Procedures With This Liposuction Guide

Many people work hard with diet and exercise to achieve their aesthetic goals. But between aging, genetics, pregnancy, and other factors, some parts of the body still may have more fat than we like. That’s where liposuction can make a dramatic difference when it comes to fat loss.

However, with all of the different types of liposuction and tons of liposuction reviews, understanding the benefits of liposuction can be overwhelming. So, I got with Dr. Aric Aghayan from Portland, Oregon, to see if he could discuss the four different types of liposuction available today. Let's see what he had to say!

Which Type Of Liposuction Is Best For You?
With this popular procedure, your plastic surgeon can sculpt your abdomen, love handles, hips, rear, or thighs to give you the body contours you’ve dreamed of. There are many different types of liposuction for fat loss available today, ranging from Traditional Liposuction to Tumescent to Ultra-sound liposuction and Laser Assisted, we have you covered with this liposuction guide!

Which Type Of Liposuction Is Best For You By Barbies Beauty Bits

#1 Standard Liposuction
This is the oldest type of liposuction. First, the surgeon makes small incisions in the area that needs treatment. Then, a cannula is inserted to remove the fat cells.

This type of liposuction can be used on the abdomen, thighs, legs, back, arms and rear. However, it’s not the best choice for small areas, such as under the chin, because it isn’t precise enough.

The primary reason this type of procedure is used today is it’s the least expensive option. It also has been used for years and has been proven to be safe and effective.

However, traditional liposuction causes more swelling and bruising. Also, it’s the least precise type of lipo, so there is a higher number of people with dimpling and lumpiness. You may even need several treatments to get the desired result. 

#2 Tumescent Liposuction
This has been the "gold standard" for liposuction for the last 20 years or so. Your surgeon makes small incisions in the target area, then injects lidocaine and epinephrine to swell the fat and make it easier to remove. The lidocaine and epinephrine also reduce bleeding and swelling, which makes a recovery easier.

Next, your plastic surgeon inserts a small cannula through the incisions and removes the desired fat cells. About four or five pounds of fat and liquid can be removed in one session.

Tumescent liposuction works well on most body parts, and the swelling and bruising usually fade in about a month. But it can take at least three months before you see the final results.

The most significant advantage of tumescent liposuction is it minimizes bruising, swelling, and bleeding. It also is one of the less expensive liposuction procedures.

ultrasonic liposuction vs traditional liposuction by barbies beauty bits
#3 Ultrasound Liposuction
Ultrasound technology has been used for 40 years, but cosmetics surgeons now use it for liposuction with good results.

Ultrasound-assisted liposuction uses sound waves to dissolve fat cells, making them easier to remove with a cannula.

This form of lipo is often used in body areas with denser fat, such as the male’s chest, on the back, and the hips. Recovery is the same as tumescent liposuction, but some patients may have minor burns or blisters.

Ultrasound liposuction is a good choice for those who want to remove a large amount of fat or need to remove tougher fat from the chin, male breasts, or back. 

#4 Laser-Assisted Liposuction
This type of lipo is similar to ultrasound, but it uses a laser to liquefy fat. Your surgeon will insert a laser probe with the cannula, which breaks down the fat into oil. Any fat that isn’t removed is eventually absorbed by the body, making this a highly efficient procedure.

This type of liposuction uses a tiny cannula, so it’s the most precise option. It also requires small incisions that don’t leave scars.

Laser-assisted liposuction is an excellent choice to fine-tune areas of the body, such as the abdominal muscles. It even can be used to remove small amounts of fat from the face. Some surgeons use this procedure to tighten the skin, as well.

This type of lipo does involve a longer recovery, and patients occasionally get burns from the laser.

Is Liposuction For Me?
Men and women undergo liposuction every day to achieve their aesthetic goals. For example, some may want to look better with their shirts off, while others want to look more attractive in a bathing suit. And some desire that their stylish clothes fit more comfortably.

If any of the following apply to your situation, talk to your plastic surgeon about liposuction today:

  • You have extra fat in certain areas that don’t respond to diet and exercise, such as the abdomen, sides, chin, neck, rear, or thighs.
  • You believe that some parts of your body are out of proportion with the rest.
  • Your skin elasticity is good, and you don’t have issues with loose or sagging skin.
  • You’re close to your ideal body weight.

However, if you have loose skin in some treatment areas, liposuction will only accentuate the problem. Therefore, you may need a tummy tuck as well as liposuction for ideal results.

Also, remember that liposuction isn’t for losing weight. This procedure can enhance your contours and make you look slimmer, but it is not meant for weight loss. You should be near your ideal weight before considering this procedure.
