keep calm + glow on

 

Ok, so I have to admit something and it's not pretty. So don't judge me. I just took a peek in the mirror and my skin looks down right drab. Yes, MY skin! While my Christmas decorations look fab, my skin, it's looking pretty dull right now. These long hours at the boutique recently are really starting to show. With just one week until Christmas, renewing my vows in Vegas, and ringing in the New Year - it's time for a skincare bootcamp!

That's right skin! I'm taking the next few days to exfoliate, hydrate + look down right amazing!

Old dead skin cells can make even the dewiest skin look dull. So before you do anything, lets brighten your skin by removing those dead skin cells. As you know, there are two kinds of exfoliants: chemical and physical. I love this exfoliating mask from Little Barn Apothecary, because it exfoliates using alpha hydroxy fruit acids from passion fruit, lemon, pineapple, and grape. That means we're gently resurfacing your skin without harsh toxins or rough scrubbing. 

LITTLE BARN APOTHECARY
Passion Fruit + Rose Enzymatic Exfoliant Mask

An organic based, highly effective exfoliating treatment mask to improve dull, aging, and congested skin. Created with alpha hydroxy fruit acids from passion fruit, lemon, pineapple, and grape. This gel based mask is blended with organic aloe and soothing rose to reduce redness associated with the active process of exfoliation with AHA. Great for all skin types.

Dull skin can also be the result of an uneven complexion. Vitamin A helps encourage your skin to speed up its natural turnover, leading to more even, plump, glowing skin, with fewer lines.
