Just Skin : Treat Sun Damage!

I am very into skin care. I love trying new products. I am always reading up on the latest skin care tips, talking with my friends about their skin care routine,  like  a total skin care maniac! I have always had really great skin as far as no breakouts! I also never really went through that whole pizza face teenage meltdown THANK THE MAN ABOVE and my parents for passing down those super lit skin genes! However as I get a tad bit younger but my age increases (see what I did there) I find it very important to start doing preventive options so hopefully I won’t run into the issues of ageing skin ! Also treating things I never noticed until now when I’m all about my skin health! Everyone is always asking me what I  use on my skin, what is my routine and for so long I didn’t have a serious one besides fresh hot water and my hands!  However I do now!  My biggest issue I have worked is sun damage and dark spots from UV rays and just life in general.

Most of us brown babies don’t know and our parents didn’t teach us about the importance of sunscreen and SPF. I know for a fact my parents never mentioned anything about it all! You usually get most of  your sun damage by the time you are 17 years old! This is why a lot of us have discolorations and so many different shades on our face alone, like for me the sides of my face where darker than my front. Or my forehead was darker than the lower portion of my face. Think about the side of your face gets more sun exposure and if you are not wearing SPF you more than likely have darker shades in those areas!

So once I noticed how much sun damage I had I starting looking for the best products to even out my skin tone and brighten my complexion. Not to be confused with bleaching your skin at all. Brightening products and serums help you uncover your natural glow and enhances what you already working with! Its never to to late to take charge of your skin care! I will be sharing my favorite skin care products weekly and also giving product reviews. Today lets focus on evening out your skin tone and brightening your complexion. These are a few of my top picks baby!

 

Korres Wild Rose Vitamin C Active Brightening Oil
Korres Wild Rose Vitamin C Active Brightening Oil $54.00

This is one of my absolutely favorite products! This oil is absolutely heaven sent. Not only does it brighten and even out your skin tone. Its also so hydrating and makes your skin so soft and smooth. I usually use this product after I use my toner at night! I tend to stay away from this in the day time because it is so oily! This is one product you want to surely wear over night and let it soak into your pores. It can be used in the day time also but try to use a smaller amount in the day time cause of the oiliness! This really helped with dark marks and small blemished some things it made vanish and some things made them so faint it was unbelievable!

Skin & Body Hydration Is Key!

One thing about me as I like to stay juicy! Juicy in the sense of moisturized to the fullest. It is very important to keep your skin oiled and taken care of being that it is the biggest organ on your body and also the first thing people see! I’m never trying to arrive anywhere ashy! I used to skip nights where I didn’t put lotion or crème on my legs and it left my skin looking very dry and cracked and I want to keep this body and skin looking its best. I don’t want my 30 to look like the new 40 at all! So I am all about products that keep my skin together! Here a few of my must haves and none of these will irritate your skin or get you super oily! No matter the season if its summer, spring, or winter skin can go through changes. So you have to switch it up sometimes and try new products. You want to keep your skin regime just as fresh and up to date as your wardrobe!

L'occitine Shower OIl
L’occitane Shower Oil is a must have product . It is perfect for any season because it hydrates your skin but doesn’t make it greasy at all! I love it because sometimes I don’t like to put heavy lotion or crème on when I go to go bed at night. Just something light and fresh. Mostly because I don’t want to have to wash my sheets more than once a week, lol!

 

Nature Well Extra Virgin Coconut Oil Moisturizing Cream is one of my absolute favorites! It nourishes my skin like nobody's business and doesn't leave any oily feel at all! I appreciate something that keeps dry skin away, doesn't have a huge sent and is cost effective. You can get this from Sams club for around $9 dollars! Its a steal and last almost two months even with my 3 plus showers a day!

Skin Medica : The Best Of The Best

Skin Medica Lytera Skin Brightening System  is one set of products I absolutely adore! I started using these products maybe about 8 months ago and I absolutely see a total makeup over and difference in my skin and complexion.  I already have a few products that I used religiously but I wanted to kind of keep most of my daily regime within the same family of products. I figured why not get something that works all as a combo! The system has brightened my skin, evened out dark spots from sun damage, and the exfoliating cleanser  which I just got this week is amazing . The cleanser has my face and neck area super soft and supple!! The package also comes with a retinal which I suggest using maybe once a week when you first get it because it can be really strong and if you are not just getting started with it can make your skin peel and cause it to super sensitive in certain areas! I know this first hand!

 

The system is designed to treat and help problems in skin such as sun damage, dark spots, blemishes, and also reduce any signs of aging ! I know I am not the only one trying to keep this 80’s baby skin looking a fresh 21 🙂 . Of course to be sure to always use a SPF with any skin care so that you results are maximized and stay working. Also stay out of the sun as much possible  but if you do have enjoy a little island getaway know that too much SPF is never enough! This skin care group is medical grade so please reach out to you dermatologist or esthetician before trying any king of skin care and find out what’s going to work best for your skin!
