LET'S FACE IT

Feeling beautiful on the inside and loving who you are as a person is very important, but let's be real, we all care about the superficial side of things.. literally. I'm talking about your skin. Let's face it, we all want beautiful skin. Especially now that age is becoming something we have to pay attention to. Gone are the days of no worries, no hangovers, and wrinkles skin. Time will never stop ticking and we must adapt.

I can't speak for men, but the female skin care aisle is probably one of the most overwhelming places a woman can go. For me, walking into any Sephora gives me complete anxiety. I usually walk around like a blind Bambi with no idea what the hell I'm looking at or where I should even start. You speak to an unqualified sales associate who probably has no idea what the product does either, get suckered into spending a small fortune (usually half a months rent when its all said and done), get home and pray that this stuff works with your skin.

Taking care of your skin shouldn't be this complicated. I have been getting a lot of questions about my skin and skincare routine and I realized it's something a lot of women have questions about. I will tell you the routine that I go through twice a day but it does not mean it will be what YOU need. 

  1. Cream Cleanser 
  2. Toner
  3. CE Fruelic Sceurm (Vitamin C Serum) 
  4. Hydrating B5 Gel 
  5. Eye Cream 
  6. Face Cream 
  7. Retinol *A few nights a week (not in photo)

In addition to this lengthy list, I have also started using Hyleronic Acid (HA) face and eye masks and they are everything. You look a little like Jason Voorrhees from Friday the 13th but its totally worth it.

After all that, I figure it's best to introduce you guys to the skin and beauty expert, Haley Bogaert. Haley has recently launched her own skincare and makeup line called HB FACE and it is everything you'll ever need for all things beauty.  I wanted to keep this blog focused on two essential products that I use every day. One is a Vitamin C serum and the other is a hydrating B5 serum. They changed my skin and they are the two products Haley feels matter most in any skin care routine. Go figure!

Q&A

What is the one thing everyone should be doing when it comes to skincare? 

A. Everyone must be wearing vitamin C Every single day ! Whether its rain or shine! Its so important due to the fact that it helps prevent against UVA and UVB rays, skin cancer, and pigmentation. Vitamin c also help's to even out and moisturize  the skin! Every morning you should apply it under your face cream. Serums always before creams! The last step before makeup should be an application of sunscreen to counteract it!

What is your favourite product and why?

A. My favourite product is HBF BB cream. I love it because its super light weight and gives you the glow that everyone wants. I apply it with my Flat top HBF foundation brush. Its super easy to apply and takes no time at all. It helps everything stay in place all day! This multi- functional product incorporates your foundation, moisturizer, and sunscreen into one amazing product.

Where can people connect with you and how can you help? 

A. I can help in two ways:

If your concerns are brows:

 I have all my clients come to see me every 3 weeks for a touch up to maintain their brows. If you're trying to grow them out, I suggest you do not touch them in between visits and use a special serum to help them grow. Its literally like miracle grow for your brows !! This way we can work towards the brow your trying to achieve! I also highly recommend tinting to make the brows appear fuller!!

If your concerns are makeup:

What I am known for, is giving a wake up to makeup in 5 mins ! Everyone I know either has kids , a busy career, or just plain doesn't want to spend an hour to contour their face! I will be releasing a kit come out in April/May to create that 5 min face and make it simple for you. It will also include a video on how to do it ! You can can always come to see and I can personalize it to you and your needs!
