CVS Sheet Mask Haul and Deal!

Happy New Years loves! I hope 2018 brings all your dreams and goals come true!!

So this is my first ever post of 2018 and I couldn’t think of a better deal to post!

You know me, I’m always looking at the skincare products at CVS and go figure. They have had so many clearance sales on most beauty products. I came across a few Korean sheet masks that were only $0.75 cents! FYI they are called the Crème shop.

I would think it’s on clearance due to the holiday sets and scents.

I bought 3 of them just to try out:

An Elf’s Workshop Resveratrol Sheet Mask: Anti-age and plumb

*Resveratrol boosts collagen levels to keep skin firm and youthful.

B12 Complex Infused Face Mask: It brightens sullen skin, combats dry, cracked skin and reveals healthy radiance

*B12 is an essential vitamin known to reduce redness, inflammation, dryness and dullness of skin. It improves overall complexion and tone.

Limited Edition Fushion Sheet Mask Pumpkin Spice (Cinnamon): The Benefits of 2 masks in 1!

*Pumpkin’s superpower: Pumpkin enzymes help boost skin turnover to reveal a fresh face and a rejuvenated complexin.

*Cinnamon’s superpower: Ultra-absorbent. It neutralizes oily skin by soaking up excess sebum. It also helps thwart future breakouts and blemishes.

So really, think about it! You usually can find sheet masks for about 2.99 each and you’re only paying 75 cents?! I think this is a major steal! 😀

3 Simple Secrets to Looking Younger and Having Great Skin as You Age

Happy Wednesday loves!

I’m excited to announce that for the first time ever, I’m having a guest blogger!

No one wants to look old before their time. While we will all age, and there is no escaping it, there are some easy ways you can remain youthful looking. Your skin is the largest organ in your body, and you should look after it.

I am in my early 50s. I became a grandparent at 47 years of age. That’s pretty young, I’m sure you’ll agree. I don’t look my age, and I haven’t for many years. Now, I don’t have a ‘baby-face’ or any other ‘trick’ that keeps me looking young.
I live in a very sunny part of the world. I grew up playing outside before sunscreens were invented. My skin is olive, and I have freckles. And despite these things, people are always surprised to discover how old I am. They are even more surprised when they learn I have grandchildren.
People remark that I am very lucky, and that I must have good ‘genes’ to look so young. Well, I believe that you make your own luck, and regardless of your genetic disposition, you can slow the aging process easily and cheaply.
All those years ago, beauty products weren’t as sophisticated as they are today. I was limited with what I could do. So, here are the 3 things I have been doing for the past 35 years which helps keep my complexion radiant and fighting the aging process.
1. Exfoliate
Scrub your skin long and hard. It sounds harsh, but it works.
Don’t be gentle with your skin, especially your face and around your neck. These two areas will show how old you are sooner than anywhere else. I use a strong brush to exfoliate twice a day. I have one in the shower and one on the bathroom sink. And, I scrub those dead skin cells away until my skin shines.
2. Moisturize
Depending upon where you live, and how much exercise you get I would recommend you moisturize at least twice a day. If you live in a heavily polluted area or you are in the sun a lot, then do it more often.
What kind of moisturizer you use will depend on your budget, but to be honest you don’t need an expensive brand to get great results. I have never paid a lot of money for moisturizer. Instead, I buy ones which are thick and have a good sorbolene base.
Avoid moisturizers which are thin and look glossy. You need to protect your skin for hours at a time, so choose one which is thick and needs rubbing in.
3. Live well
Now, I know I’m going to sound like your mother, but it’s true. Alcohol, smoking and a poor diet play havoc on your skin. And, the older you get the longer it takes for your skin to repair itself, trust me!
I’m not saying you have to be saint, but limit these things as much as you can.
You need to eat a balanced diet and drink a lot of water. If you skin and hair are prone to drying out, eat more fish. I have a small can of tuna each day. It gives my body all the essential omega vitamins to help my skin shine.
It’s never too late to start taking good care of your skin. It shouldn’t cost you a lot of money either. Create a routine where you exfoliate and moisturize when needed. Also, be mindful of what you put in your mouth. Your skin will reveal those bad habits to the world if you let it.
Instead, nurture your skin to help you hide your age, and keep people guessing.
