Reveal That Younger Looking Skin With These Top Anti-aging Tips

Reveal That Younger Looking Skin With These Top Antiaging Tips With Reviv Serums, Ultimate Serum and Barbies Beauty bits

When people hear the word anti-aging, a lot think of someone in their forties, but that is further from the truth.  As when it comes to preventing wrinkles, damaged skin, lackluster complexion and more, making smart lifestyle approaches is what can really help your skin from aging before its time.

So, if you want to find out how to reveal that younger looking skin than continue reading!

Reviv Serums, Ultimate Serum Review By Barbies Beauty Bits

Skincare Products
I am starting with the first one most are curious about which is skincare products. I have tried a lot of skincare products, and while skincare and anti-aging can be a blog post on its own, I am going to share with you one of my all-time favorite skincare products which is Reviv Serums, Ultimate Serum. When selecting a great skincare product, you want to look for ones that have antioxidants, skin replenishing and restoring ingredients as well as humectants & moisturizers and this serum has that and more!

The Reviv Ultimate Serum is not only my favorite because of the results that I get but also because it is a product that addresses every concern of aging skin and is the ultimate rejuvenator; an all in one skincare serum...Oops, actually eleven!

The Reviv Ultimate Serum is 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
      Additionally, it contains PhytoCellTec stem cells, growth factors, peptides, tripeptides, hexapeptides, antioxidants, emollients, sebum-controllers, anti-inflammatories, collagen producers, phytosterols, glycolipids, and polyphenols, making it stand up to its name by being the ultimate cruelty-free, physician recommended skincare product.

      Exfoliating Your Skin
      If you want healthy, glowing skin, you should also be exfoliating your dead skin cells! Especially for those that are over thirty, as the process of desquamation slows down, meaning that our body is slower to shed dead skin cells and produce new ones.

      This buildup of dead skin cells (regardless of your age) can have an adverse effect on our complexion leaving it looking dry and dull or worse this accumulation can result in excess oil production and clogged pores, which could lead to problematic skin. Additionally, this build of dead, dry skin can not only make you look older than you are, but it creates a barrier for our skincare products. So those serums like the Reviv Ultimate Serum and other products that you're spending all that money on can't get to the fresh new skin which is hidden below this barrier of dead skin cells.

      Hence, exfoliation is here to help speed up the process of shedding old skin and making room for new skin to emerge. That is right if you are correctly exfoliating your skin, you do not have to rely on your body’s natural rate of desquamation to keep your complexion looking radiant and beautiful.

      Antioxidants food for a more youthful complexion by barbies beauty bits and reviv serums

      Your Diet
      You are what you eat is a true statement. While we can indulge, there are some foods that can help with the skin. One important food to add to your diet are foods that are rich in antioxidants. Antioxidants are a must for a more youthful complexion as they help to protect the skin against free radical in the environment which can lead to premature aging. Why do you ask? Because these environmental factors can break down the collagen and elastin of the skin, causing you to age more quickly.  However, when you have a diet rich in antioxidants, they work to prevent these free radicals from damaging the skin.

      Some foods rich in antioxidants, include...
      • Dark Green Vegetables
      • Berries
      • Nuts
      • Sweet Potatoes
      • Whole Grains
      • Fish
      Tips on getting plenty of rest for essential for skin renewal by barbies beauty bits and reviv serums

      Getting Your Beauty Sleep
      Getting plenty of rest is essential for skin renewal because as we sleep our skin rests, recovers and renews. There are a few hormones in our body which can help safely with sleep as well as bad.

      Let’s start with the good, with melatonin. Not to get too technical here, but I found out that the sleep hormone melatonin begins to rise a few hours before bedtime as we start to wind down. This hormone not only helps with making us sleepy, but it also helps to fight those skin-damaging environmental factors we have exposed ourselves to during the day, hence repairing our complexion as we sleep.

      On the other hand, with a lack of sleep the stress hormone cortisol, can cause skin collagen to break down causing the skin to lose its elasticity, firmness, smoothness and more.  Yes, a lack of sleep not only can affect your physical appearance instantly but can have a long-term negative impact as well.

      Getting the correct hours of sleep is also essential. The goal is to have 6-8 hours of sleep a night as lacking sleep can cause other issues with the skin like dark circles under the eyes and bags! Oh, and don't forget to take your makeup off before you go to bed as makeup can clog your pores which can lead to irritation and blemishes!

      Some additional sleeping tips to help with antiaging include sleeping on a silk pillow and sleeping on your back.

      How stress can aggravate skin conditions by barbies beauty bits and reviv serums

      Not only does stress show up in our face, which can potentially aggravate skin conditions and cause premature aging, that physical stress can also cause our body to produce more of that darn stress hormone. And as we mentioned above, it can break down collagen and elastin, ultimately leading to wrinkles! So, find your Zen time!

      The importance of water and antiaging by barbies beauty bits

      Drink Plenty Of Water
      This is one area I am not great at, the task of drinking 13 glasses of water a day can be daunting.  While I am not dismissing the importance of drinking this many glasses.  If you are like me, you can get some of your needed h20 intake from some of your fruits, vegetables, and some other liquids like green tea.

      So, there you have it my top anti-aging tips to help reveal that younger looking skin for people at any age. And remember the best time for a new beginning is NOW, and that goes for your skincare!

      Tips To Reapply SPF Over Your Makeup With Seriously Fab Zinc It Over Facial Sunscreen Mist

      Tips To Reapply SPF Over Your Makeup With Zinc It Over Facial Suncreen Mist By Barbies Beauty Bits

      Most of us know the importance of using sunscreen, but did you know it is also essential to incorporate sunscreen into your makeup routine as well?

      Yep, protecting ourselves from UV rays is vital at all times and all seasons! But the tricky part comes when you must combine into your makeup application. While we can find a sunblock or maybe even a tinted SPF, sunscreen may not always be in our favorite makeup or skincare. Hence, we are either forced to wear a foundation we don’t like at times or have to apply it prior, which does not always mix well with all makeup. And if that wasn't bad enough did you know that reapplying SPF it is also critical; every 2 hours is key to adequate sun protection. Now, how the heck can you reapply sunscreen a few times a day without messing up your makeup masterpiece?

      Well, fret no more as I have a solution for you with Seriously Fab ZINC IT OVER facial sunscreen mist that can be used OVER your makeup! This fine, sheer mist can be reapplied numerous times throughout the day over your favorite makeup! So, if you want to find out more about this cool product continue reading!

      Tips To Reapply SPF Over Your Makeup With Seriously Fab Zinc It Over Facial Suncreen Mist By Barbies Beauty Bits

      Seriously Fab ZINC IT OVER
      Not only does this spray help to protect your skin from the sun while wearing makeup, but it is also vegan and cruelty-free, now how great is that? Additionally, this product is free of some other harmful ingredients that can potentially cause skin irritation, which can lead to premature aging! Yep, I love that this product is safe for the skin as it is…
      • Gluten Free
      • Paraben-Free
      • GMO-Free
      • Silicone Free
      • Alcohol-Free
      • Perfume/Dye Free
      • Talc Free
      • Has no animal by-products
      • Comes in scented and unscented. (I selected the unscented as I am not a fan of scented products on or near my face)
      Furthermore, all of the ingredients are carefully sourced utilizing phytonutrients and antioxidants that are widely known to be safe and beneficial for the complextion. The powerhouse ingredients in Seriously Fab ZINC IT OVER includes Blueberry, Pomegranate, Vitamin E, Aloe Vera, and Pumpkin Seed!

      And because of the natural ingredients in this product, it is also better suited for those with sensitive skin, as most natural products do not irritate the skin.

      How To Use ZINC IT OVER Facial Spray
      If you want to streamline your SPF protection process, try using a BB cream or CC cream with SPF in it. I like products from ITcosmetics as they also have additional benefits for the skin. And finish off your makeup with a translucent dusting powder as this will help to keep your makeup in place.

      Then 15 minutes before sun exposure you want to spray your entire face with the ZINC IT OVER facial mist!  For maximum UVA & UVB protection make sure to use every 2 hours throughout the day (which is possible as this bad boy fits right into your purse). Similar to most setting sprays you want to apply about 10 inches from your face to avoid droplets that can run and mess your up your makeup. IMPORTANT: To activate the ZINC formula you want to shake the bottle vigorously.

      Although I try a lot of products, I am really excited about this one as not only does it provide UVA & UVB protection, but it also very hydrating to the skin, while leaving me with a dewy look which is must if you are over the age of 30!

      So there you have it beauties, an excellent way to wear your favorite makeup while incorporating sunscreen protection as well! Oh, and don’t forget your pout! Your lips can get sunburned, so apply a lip balm with moisturizer!

      Why The Heck Do I Need To Add Venofye Bee Venom Products To My Skincare Routine

      Why The Heck Do I Need To Add Bee Venom To My Skincare Routine By Barbie's Beauty Bits And Venofye

      This is my 4th post in my what the heck series, and today I am going to be talking about Bee Venom and the benefits of adding it to your skincare routine!

      Now if you are a friend of mine you probably think I would be the last person that would add this to my skincare regimen as I am scared to death of bees!

      While I know honey is fantastic to add to your skincare routine as it is loaded with antibacterial properties and packed with nutrients and healing compounds all of which can help your complexion. Bee venom shares some of these same qualities, plus some other added anti-aging benefits.

      The Many Benefits Of Adding Bee Venom To Your Skincare Regimen  

      "The advantage of adding Bee Venom (Apitoxin) to your skincare to routine is its ability to trick the skin into believing that if you have been stung, thereby increasing the production of collagen and blood circulation," says Natalie Zinder, a product developer who works with Venofye. This rush of blood may also help the skin's appearance and lead to a gentle plumping and tightening sensation that will diminish the signs of aging.  And if that wasn’t enough Bee Venom is also known to be comprised of 21 naturally occurring components such as enzymes, amino acids, and peptides.

      So, if you want to find out what the BUZZ is all about by adding “Nature’s Botox,” AKA Bee Venom to trick your skin into thinking it’s been stung which causes it to plump and tighten continue reading.

      The Many Benefits Of Adding Bee Venom To Your Skincare Regimen By Barbies Beauty Bits and Venofye

      For this post, I partnered up with Venofye, one of the brands capitalizing on the power of bee venom. Venofye sent me some products in their Queen Bee Collection, which consists of a moisturizer, Vitamin C serum, facial peel, and eye cream.

      Now, I’ve been using these products for about two weeks and while at first I was a bit scared to try them as I am allergic to bees I was interested in the effectiveness of these products, and I must say that I am loving them.

      Venofye Queen Bee Facial Peel
      First up is my all-time favorite in this skincare line, the Queen Bee Facial Peel. This stuff is the bee’s knees! It literally sloughs off your dead skin cells which you can visibly see when using it. I was very intrigued by this sloughing action and did some research on it. While this is called a peel, it is actually a gentle physical exfoliant, like a scrub, not a chemical exfoliant, as that would probably burn the skin! So no worries this is safe on the skin.

      So how does this work? The fibers that form from the ingredients "ball up" with the rubbing motion on your skin.  This combined with the oils, dirt and dead skin cells are what is creating this balling action, it is pretty cool. While it is intense, it is gentle on the skin, leaving my skin feeling refreshed, brighter and rejuvenated.

      I am hooked on this product and will most certainly be adding this to my weekly skincare routine.

      Venofye Queen Bee Facial Peel Review With Bee Venom By Barbies Beauty Bits

      Venofye Vitamin C Serum
      The changes our skin has over the years requires a great skincare must-have product, and for me, it is the anti-aging superstar, Vitamin C serum!  You see, the younger we are the more vitamin C we have in our skin.  But as we get older our skin changes, aside from natural aging and stress, we are also exposing ourselves to tons environmental factors!

      Some of these factors include dirt, dust, makeup, sweat, parabens and other products and preservatives that can severely disrupt our body’s natural processes, which leads to premature aging.  However, by adding a vitamin C serum to your skincare routine, you can help protect our skin against these age provoking dangers.

      And the remarkable thing about the Vitamin C serum from the Queen B collection is that it’s formulated with two forms of Vitamin C (Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate and Ascorbyl Palmitate). These ingredients combined with the bee venom further strengthens our skins durability, enabling us to achieve a better, healthy complexion as well as helping to reduce wrinkles and improve skin texture.

      Vitamin C Serum and moisturizer that contain Bee Venom By Barbies Beauty Bits and Venofye

      Venofye Day Moisturizer
      This daytime moisturizer is lightweight and works in combination with the Vitamin C Serum.  Due to the rare combination of ingredients in this moisturizer and the cost, I did not want to waste it. Hence,  I applied it with my Michael Todd Beauty Sonic Eraser Pro as the last thing I want to do is to waste this fantastic moisturizer on my fingers. 

      I will tell you that with this moisturizer I could feel a tingly effect of the bee venom, but it left my skin with a luminous glow.

      Venofye Royal Jelly Bee Venom Eye Firming Cream By Barbies Beauty Bits
      The Royal Jelly Bee Eye Firming Cream
      It’s time to be treated like royalty and help get rid those designer bags, as I call them under my eyes with this eye firming cream.

      This firming eye cream is formulated with some other excellent ingredients like caffeine, Shea butter, vitamin E and green tea all in which help to energize the skin under your eyes and diminish the look of puffiness and other issues you may have. This too I could feel some tingly and tightening when using, which to me is a plus, as I could feel it in action.

      Now if Bee Venom wasn’t crazy enough, this skincare line has a special guest to join the bees… A snake! Now, no worries as there are no bites involved, but just snake venom, that can help in preventing and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.  So stay tuned, as I will be sharing with you some details on this Viperlift product on my Instagram page!

      The best bee venom skincare products by Barbies Beauty Bits and Venofye

      So, there you have it another post in my what the heck series. And beauties, for those of you who want to feel like the younger queen bee, then come spoil yourself with the Venofye Queen Bee Collection
