Celebrity Anti-aging Beauty Secrets Revealed!

Celebrity Anti-aging Beauty Secrets Revealed, By Barbie's Beauty Bits

We’ve all been there, looking at a celebrity on TV and wondering how does she stay looking so young?  Well, today ladies I am going to share with you a celebrity anti-aging secret, a peel.  Peels are the go-to exfoliator for those in the know as they help to remove dead skin cells from the surface of your skin.  But the downside, especially if you are a newbie to skincare is that many are intimidated by peels because of their acid content.  Well beauties, fear no more as I am here to share with you a product from Exuviance, the Firm-NG6 Non-Acid Peel that is a non-acid peel. This acid-free formula is your solution, especially to you newbies out there as it is gentle enough for all skin types.

The Importance Of Exfoliating The Skin

Now before I go into the product, I think it is important that you understand why you should exfoliate, by doing so it is going to enable you to take better care of your skin. You see as we age the cell regeneration process slows down.  In laymen's terms, this means as we get older the body is slower to shed the old skin cells and generate new ones.  (The old skin cell build-up is what causes the skin to look dull, rough and dry).  When we exfoliate, we can remove that buildup of old dead skin revealing the new skin cell. Another bonus when we eliminate this dead skin, it also aides moisturizers and other skincare products to penetrate more deeply into the skin, allowing them to work at their best.

The Product

The New Exuviance Firm-NG6 Non-Acid Peel is one that I would recommend to those who want to take that step of a peel but are afraid of the redness and burn that an acid formula will leave.  It’s 6% patented NeoGlucosamine® formulation provides all the benefits of a peel without irritation; it's a neutral, non-acid compound. Plus it…
  • Accelerates cell renewal, improving texture and tone.
  • Exfoliates, reducing pigment to brighten skin.
  • No more excuses of "I just don't have the time", as the formula is a leave-on, no-rinse formula, for all skin types.
Allowing you to discover younger, smoother, firmer skin just like the celebs, but with No Burn, Just benefits!

How To Use:
  • Smooth one to two pumps of  Exuviance's Firm-NG6 Non-Acid Peel onto clean skin in an even layer without rubbing.
  • Lightly tap any excess product into the skin.
  • Wait 5-10 minutes while it penetrates.
  • Once the product feels absorbed, follow with your favorite SPF moisturizer. 

Caution: Avoid contact with eyes. If contact occurs, rinse well with water. If rash or irritation develops, discontinue use. Limit sun exposure and use a sunscreen during and after use to prevent darkening from reoccurring.

This product can be purchased online at And it is on sale now for only $51, regularly $68!  So what are you waiting for? This is your chance to start out the new year looking amazing with younger more radiant skin!

In conclusion, it is important to understand that peels are helpful for improving your skins tone and texture, but it just doesn’t stop there.  For the best results, you must combine this with a well-formulated moisturizer that contains an SPF!  Now that is what I call a BEAUTYful combination to looking like a celebrity!

“The list to making your SMILE look great in photo's.”

The list to making your SMILE look great in photo's wiht crest 3d whitestrips by barbies beauty bits

Have A Teeth Whitening Kit: First you need to get your teeth whitening kit, and Crest 3D White Whitestrips 1-Hour Express Teeth Whitening Kit is having a limited-time offer where you can buy one kit at and get another for free! So technically you could give someone else the gift of a BEAUTYful smile too!  * Each box comes with 8 strips, 4 treatments (each with one upper and one lower strip).   

Remove Teeth Stains: Drinking too much coffee over the years, or maybe a bit too much red wine at a holiday party can affect your teeth negatively.  But fret no more as the Crest 3D Whitestrips will remove years of teeth stains for a noticeably whiter smile!  

Saving: Time is money and during the busy holiday you need all the time you can, and with the Crest 3D Whitestrips, Express, you have just that! Your teeth are going to whiten faster than ever, as it only takes 1 hour to get that glistening white smile! You’ll be out the door LICKETY-SPLIT!  

No Slip Grip: If you are like me when you are getting ready, you need to be able to multi-task! With the Crest Advanced Seal Technology's no-slip grip you can do just that as these bad boys stay put. You can talk, take a selfie, and drink water all while whitening your teeth! 

Barbies Beauty Bits and Crest 3D Whitestrips 1 Hour Express

Hassle Free:  This teeth whitening experience was so easy, especially because you can do it in the comfort of your home, instead of the dentist. I mean who likes going to the dentist? Plus, Crest uses the same enamel-safe teeth whitening ingredients dentists use. 

Highlight Those Pearly Whites:  Now that you have whitened your teeth with Crest's 3D Express Whitening Kit,  you want to emphasize that smile with a great lipstick.  But before you grab just any color you need to make sure that you are choosing the correct color. There are a few things to consider when choosing a lipstick, first is selecting a color that will flatter your undertones. Secondly, you want to pick a shade that will reflect off your teeth in a positive manner, like berry colors or lipsticks with blue undertones. These hues help to highlight those pearly whites, making them look even brighter. On the same token, you want to stay away from lipsticks that have a yellow-orange undertone in them, as they seem to emphasize the imperfections in your teeth. Now you are ready for that mistletoe photo!

How lipstick colors can effect the color of your teeth by barbies beauty bits

BONUS TIPS: I know I said six tips, but I feel that once you have your pearly whites and the correct lipstick, you also need to make sure you prepared for the photo opp. So here are two more tips that will have you dazzling in photo's this holiday season!

Smiling: To avoid that awkward smile and also to help you appear to have that Hollywood smile, place your tongue on the roof of your mouth, behind your front teeth.  This will make the muscles tighten around the neck & chin, making you appear thinner.

The Positioning Of The Camera: Now you are ready to capture those fun holiday memories.  To start you want to make sure you place the camera at a high angle, you want it above your eye level. This forces you to look up, extending your torso and neck. NEVER take a picture facing the camera directly, this is rarely flattering and can add a lot of pounds.

There you have it beauties my tips to achieving the picture perfect smile during your fun holiday moments.

Tis' the season to be merry with your holiday smile from Crest Whitestrips!  Until Next time!

4 Ways To Repair And Restore Damaged Hair

4 Ways To Repair And Restore Damaged Hair By Barbie's Beauty Bits.
This is a Sponsored Post on behalf of Hask Beauty

If you are like me, I have done everything to my hair! From perms in the 80’s to an ombre style most recently, my hair has been through a lot.  My secret has always been to use great products to repair, restore and maintain healthy hair!  But what happens if that is not your truth, but instead your color treatments, hair dryer and curling irons have left your hair drab and lifeless?  Well, know worries as I’m here to share with you 4 Ways to Repair and Restore Damaged Hair, making your hair the envy of all.

For this post, I have partnered up with Hask Beauty.  Hask has been around for over 50 years.  They specialize in hair care products featuring exotic oils from around the world. Utilizing high-quality ingredients and amazing fragrances, the HASK Exotic Oil line provides consumers with high-performance, salon quality results and the best part it is at an affordable price.

Before I share with you the 4 Ways to Repair and Restore Damaged Hair, I feel it is important to make sure that I mention great hair starts in the shower.  Therefore, you want to make sure that you are using the products that have the right ingredients. One of the key ingredients to restoring parched over styled hair is Keratin protein. Keratin Protein is the stuff that your hair, skin and nails are made of, so no wonder it's powerful and restorative for your locks.  Therefore wouldn't it make sense to add a keratin protein to your hair routine, leaving you with shiny, hairtastic hair!

Hask Keratin Protein Treatment by Barbies Beauty Bits

As I mentioned above, great hair starts in the shower, so first up is the Shampoo! Hask has a great Keratin Smoothing Shampoo that is infused with hydrolyzed keratin to reduce frizz and block humidity! Plus it smells amazing!

Tip 2: Keratin Smoothing Conditioner. This conditioner gently smoothes and detangles your hair, leaving your hair soft and revitalized with an incredible shine.

IMPORTANT: Make sure that when you are using this product that you apply generously and leave on for 1-2 minutes and make sure you rinse thoroughly! 

Tip 3: Keratin Smoothing Deep Conditioner. Using a deep conditioner is a plus as it is designed to penetrate deeper into the hair. It is perfect for over processed and color treated hair.  The Hask deep conditioner has a special ingredient that helps reduce breakage, static and drying time! 

Hask Keratin Smoothing Deep Conditioner by Barbies Beauty Bits

How to use? 

For best results, you want to make sure that you are applying to clean wet hair.  A trick to penetrating your hair deep is to make sure that you squeeze out the excess water, with a cotton t-shirt. (See the bonus tip below).  Massage into hair focusing on damaged areas. Leave it on for 10 minutes. Rinse well. Style as usual.

Tip 4: Keratin Smoothing Shine Treatment. This shine hair oil gives that over-processed hair a miracle makeover.  It is lightweight and alcohol-free leaving your hair with an amazing shine!

Directions:  While this oil can be used on both wet and dry hair.  I found that when I applied it to my hair when it was wet, I wasn’t left with an oily residue. Apply a coin-sized amount evenly throughout hair, AND avoiding the root area. Style as desired.

I know I only said four tips, but I have to bonus tips for you!

How to dry your hair with a tshirt instead of a towel by barbies beauty bits

Bonus Tip 1:  Drying your hair.  Instead of using a towel swap it out with a t-shirt.  A towel absorbs most of the moisture from your hair leaving the hair frizzy.  Plus, a t-shirt is flat with no roof edges, so it glides right through your hair with less friction. Less friction equals less frizz!

Bonus Tip 2: Sleep on a silk pillowcase.  Regular pillowcases are abrasive leading to friction, silk pillowcase have little friction, so no more knotty, ratty hair.

5 Ways To Repair Damaged Skin And Reduce Facial Redness- A Paula’s Choice Review

Disclaimer: This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of  Paula's Choice Skincare. The opinions are mine.

5 Ways To Repair Damage Skin And Reduce Facial Redness- A Paula’s Choice Review, By Barbie's Beauty Bits.

If you follow my blog regularly, you know how adamant I am about skincare.  Although, I do have my favorites, trying and testing out other products opens an opportunity for me to step up my skincare regimen!  This is why I was so excited to be able to Partner up with Paula’s Choice and PRIMP (Pretty In My Pocket) an awesome beauty app. for who I am one of their expert beauty bloggers.

Pretty in my pocket expert blogger, barbies beauty bits

The journey started with a personal consultation with a skincare specialist from Paula’s Choice.  Way to go Paula’s Choice, that really gave me a great first impression, as they understand that not everyone's skin and more important skincare needs, are not all the same. Their product line includes something for everyone, acne, rosacea, aging, pores. They treat it all.  

While, I don’t have a lot of blemishes, I do have some redness in my cheeks due to sun damage from my younger sun goddess years, so my consultant recommended a skin care regimen to help with the redness, as well as some anti-aging products. 

The Importance Of Layering Your Skincare Products

Before I get into the products they sent me,  I think it is essential for you to be aware that in order for you to get the best results from your skincare products, you need to understand the significance of layering them.  This means applying them in the correct order.

The information that I will be sharing with you will be in the order in which you need to apply them.  So please keep this order in mind, when using your own skincare products.

So What Did I Get?

As you can see from the picture, they sent me a lot of products, needless to say, I was excited!  The products included items from the HydraLight and Resist line.

The importance of layering your skincare products, by Barbie's Beauty Bits

Hydralight Advanced Kit

This Hydralight kit included everything that I needed to calm the redness I have on my face as well as helping to reduce signs of aging.  And for those who have oily skin, which I do not, it helps to reduce that oily shine.  (Keep in mind I am listing these in the order in which they need to be used).



Hydralight One Step FaceCleanser

Skin type: Normal to Oily/Combination Skin

Cleansing your face is the first step in your skincare regimen.  Seems a bit obvious to me, but for those of you who may have just used water or any ole soap in the past, DON’T!  The reason being is a facial cleanser is designed to prep your face so to speak, for the other skincare products that follow. 

So how to use this bad boy?  Get your face wet and then apply a small about to your face in circular motion, rinse when finished.


Skin type: Normal to Oily/Combination Skin

This is the second product you apply to your face as toners help to hydrate, replenish, restore and repair the skin's surface when used right after cleansing.

How To Use: You can apply with a cotton ball or pad.  Do not rinse off.

Benefits: This antioxidant-rich formula helps to improve the skins function and reduces cellular damage and inflammation.

Bonuses: This toner is 100% fragrance- and colorant-free, and helps to remove any left over makeup you may have missed with the cleanser. 

Paula's Choice Hydralight Advanced Kit review, By Barbie's Beauty Bits

Skin type: All Skin Types

An exfoliant is one of my favorite skincare products especially if you have any sun damage. Why? Because an exfoliant will remove the built up layers on the outside of the skin, it ends up revealing that younger looking skin beneath.  Removing these dead skin cells can also improve any dull, uneven skin, you may have, as well as minimizing the appearance of fine lines.

I also liked that this BHA exfoliant has some anti-bacterial properties that helped when I started to get a blemish.  For the anti-aging lover in me, it is supposed to increase my collagen production, obviously it is too earlier to see these types of results yet, but I‘m excited to find out.

Bonuses: The unique formula is a LEAVE ON exfoliant that works instantly to remove dead skin cells, now how cool is that?

Important: This BHA lotion (beta hydroxy acid), the same thing found in aspirin, so if you are allergic to aspirin, you won’t be able to use this product.

Skin type: All Skin Types

Treatment is the next step in your skin care routine and in my case it is an anti-aging product.   In the kit I received I was given two products from their resist line, which are to be combined with your moisturizer. While I know there is no magic potion that will erase my wrinkles, a retinol can sure aid in diminishing them!

By combing this retinol concentrate product into my moisturizer, I was able to customize the strength, creating my own Retinol cream!  LOVE THIS IDEA!

Retinols are another fav. of mine because they are great at stimulating collagen production & repairing past skin damage!

Overall, I was pleasantly surprised that this product did not irritate my skin, as some retinol's strength can give you that burning sensation.  This one didn’t which is a plus for those that have sensitive skin or redness, like me. THUMBS UP!

Here are some other pointers that I got from Paula’s Choice website on the 
Resist 1% Retinol Booster

Paula's Choice Resist 1% Retinol Booster review by Barbie's Beauty Bits

Skin type: Normal to Oily/Combination Skin

The last step is a moisturizer & an SPF.  While,  I did use this moisturizer in combination with the retinol, I would like to let you know a bit about the product.
