trying to glow up here
First of all, I have a boob pillow. It helps in making things not worse but is there a cream or serum or mask or micro needling or anything that I can do to make my chest wrinkles go away. I have a nuface - should I use it here? NuFACE - Trinity Facial Toning Device My chest does not match my face 😔
NuFACE-Trinity Facial Toning Device
Fake it until You Make it
Sometimes I can’t sleep. When I wake up, I look like garbage. I love this product because it is a great concealer for those days when I look like someone punched me in the eye. It has sunscreen and antioxidants so it is a great moisturizer as well. It is definitely one of my go to secret sauce products.

Another Win with Cerave
Omg Cerave is the best company. Every product I have tried of theirs is amazing. My skin feels nourished and moisturized. This product is so well priced. My skin barrier feels thick from the ceramides. I love Cerave soo much! It isn’t greasy. I feel like using this product makes my skin thicker which has been a goal of mine! I might have to try all of their products because so far every one is amazing!
CeraVe-Daily Moisturizing Lotion For Normal To Dry Skin
Thicker would be better
I got a little kit with this in it. Do I love it - no. Do I hate it- no. I wish the cream was a bit thicker like my belif eye cream. The good part is that it works under makeup which is important to me, but I’m still looking for the holy grail of eye creams. Any suggestions?

Quenching My Skin Thirst
I had no idea how thirsty my skin was until I went to kiehls and got an in store facial (precovid). I started using this every day and noticing some wrinkles disappear. The smell is really lovely. It smells like lavender. It has squalane which is amazing for your skin. It is so luxurious feeling on the skin. It doesn’t feel oily at all. It is my favorite kiehls product. I actually wear it night and day because I love nourishing feeling so much! ⭐️⭐️⭐️
Kiehl's-Midnight Recovery Concentrate
Best of Both
This stuff is amazing because it works as a sunscreen and an amazing primer! My makeup goes on soooo smooth with this. The consistency is less sticky than petroleum jelly but looks similar. Highly recommend especially for the summer in California where I need as much protection as I can get! Highly recommend!

Turning 30? Buy This Eye Cream Now!
So, it’s finally here. The year I turn 30. I’ve got 6 months ‘til the big day, but to get a headstart, I’m upping my anti-ageing game now. I’ve been pretty good so far. I wear high factor sunscreen every day (okay, most days), I drink lots of water, and I moisturize every night. But fine lines (or laughter lines, as I prefer to call them) have begun to appear over the past couple of years, so I’ve been hunting for the most effective ‘eye area’ product. But I’m wary. It’s always been drilled into me that you should never drag the skin around your eyes, and so many products warn you to ‘avoid the delicate eye area’. I really don’t want to mess around with this sensitive and age-revealing part of my face. Retinols have kind of exploded onto the beauty scene with their staggering cure-all claims - they tackle not just wrinkles and fine lines, but blemishes, pigmentation, dullness, even acne. I’m a great believer in retinol (a concentrated form of Vitamin A), known as the ‘oxygen’ to your skin. So this was the first ingredient I looked for. I went through a couple of retinol serums that didn’t make a visible difference, then I found Pixi Retinol Eye Cream, which I decided to try after being gifted their Glow Tonic, which I loved. This product was a game-changer for me. It’s boosted by Caffeine and Blueberry extract which seem to make my eyes look brighter when I wake up in the morning. My skin is ‘normal’ but towards the drier end in winter, so I like that it contains Jojoba and Avocado oils. They feel extra hydrating. The scent is feminine but natural (not perfumey). I also like that the retinol concentration is low enough not to irritate my skin, especially as I’m so obsessive about protecting this delicate area. After a month I feel my fine lines are less noticeable. I can’t wait to see the results in another month. It's not cheap, but it’s not bank-breaking - the texture is so thick you have to really squeeze to get it out, so it’s worth the money as it’ll last a while. I’m happy I’ve found a great line of defence so I can go into my 30s with confidence!
My secret to long, healthy hair! 😱
Everybody always asks me how I get such long hair especially while having light blonde hair and being constantly died at the hair dresser (my hair dresser wonders the same thing!) I will share my tips and hair product secrets with you... 💫 Firstly I barely get hair cuts at the hair dresser, and if I do it’s only a small trim! 💫 Go to a good hairdresser you trust that knows what they’re doing- avoid box dyes if you can! I used to bleach my hair back in the day and had so much breakage! It’s better to see someone that specialises in blonde hair if you are blonde. I go to Rodney Wayne in Bethlehem, NZ. It’s a little more pricey but I get the colour I want every time, and they make sure to treat my hair every time too to give it nourishment. 💫 I rarely heat style my hair- using hot tools can cause a lot of split ends and unwanted damage. I tie my hair up for work and leave it down when I go out (I only style it for special occasions etc) 💫 Only wash your hair 2-3 times a week! This will help to bring through your natural scalp oils which helps hair growth and nourishment. Over washing will strip the natural oils and will end up over drying your hair. I also use the Dyson super sonic hair dryer which dries your hair super fast using minimal heat unlike standard hair driers. 💫 I use Batiste dry shampoo if I want to hide my regrowth. This was a blessing over lock down when I couldn’t dye it! 🙊 This particular brand brings off a white cast that makes your regrowth look lighter. This is great if you try to avoid dyeing your hair under 8 weeks apart but have it still looking nice. 💫 Last but not least which has helped heaps in preventing hair breakage is the Kerastase extensioniste range! Try to avoid supermarket products as they don’t contain all of the good ingredients that help target the actual hair follicle. This range is designed to grow your hair faster each month. The drops you massage into your scalp also makes a huge difference! Apparently massaging your scalp stimulates it to help with hair growth too. #cheriepartner #ad #cheriecreator KÉRASTASE - Thermique Extentioniste Batiste - Blush Dry Shampoo Floral & Flirty dyson - Supersonic Hair Dryer

How to Improve Textured Under-Eyes! (Tip) ❤️
I’ve been learning SO much lately about skincare and cosmetics! I’m so excited to share this “theory” that I find has worked on my own skin! To treat the issue, you have have a bit understanding behind skin and it’s functions. The skin is the largest organ of our body. It’s job is to help us thermoregulate, protect us from outside pollutants, assist with immune response, etc. We tend to use a lot of products and read what the ingredients do, but what part of the skin is it treating? Skin is skin. However, there’s more to it. What if I told you there is a part of your skin called the “Acid Mantle”. The acid mantle is a protective layer that sits on the surface of the skin. It helps with maintaining Ph, moisture levels, and protect against pollutants. This is most likely the area most cosmetic/skincare companies target. How this plays into textured under eyes is simple- your Acid Mantle is most likely out of balance! Dry, textured undereyes are also dehydrated and the pH just isn’t right on the skin. When we think of dehydration, we gravitate towards the nearest moisturizer. However, that moisturizer isn’t going to cover everything that your skin needs. If you’re that type of person that has tried every eye cream under the sun and you don’t understand why you’re not getting soft and supple undereyes, this tip is for you- USE A FACE OIL TAILORED TO YOUR SKIN AFTER YOU USE YOUR MOISTURIZER(Linoleic Vs Oleic). Everyone can use a face oil, even oily skin! Sometimes our skin does this thing called “trans epidermal water loss(TEWL) which is where your environment or some other factor causes you to loose water from your skin. Oils form a “film” around your skin so it’s great for trapping in that moisture as well as adding the healthy fats your skin needs. Overtime, you’ll start to see some improvement in your Acid Mantle. I started seeing mine a month in after applying the products every other day on my skin. This moisturizer and oil combo should help rebalance your pH as long as you have the right formulas on hand to do it. Putting in the oil all over your face can provide some nice healing benefits too! I use TATCHA - Ageless Renewal Eye Cream and add #Oshima tsubaki Tokyo - Tsubaki Oil[products]#[FiveStars] after giving some time for the eye cream to set in. Voila! Less textured and soft and supple undereyes!

Split ends ?? Here’s some tips and info 🙂
"Split ends" refers to the splitting or fraying of the hair shaft, most commonly affecting long hair. This occurs when the outermost layer of the hair shaft, the cuticle, is damaged, exposing the cortex of the hair. This damage can lead to hair breakage, dry hair ends, dead ends, and of course, split ends. Split ends happen when the ends of your hair become dry, brittle, and frayed. ... Exposure to extreme weather conditions, and hair care techniques such as blow drying, straightening, and curling may cause split ends. They're also caused by chemical hair products. Once a hair strand splits at the end, the damage will only progress. Left untouched, a split end will continue to split all the way up the hair shaft, damaging the entire strand beyond repair. Split ends no longer have a smooth cuticle covering them, so they naturally catch and snag on each other and on healthy ends. Take a look at the ends of your hair; splits are easy to spot. Instead of a single hair strand that's intact all the way to the end, a split end looks just like that: two separate strands of hair at the bottom of the hair shaft, sticking away from one another, forming a V shape. Most causes of split ends are caused by various forms of stress – either stress to yourself, stress to your hair or both! Stress to your hair. ... If your hair is constantly being poked, pricked, combed and 'untangled' it's likely to be experiencing damage through wear and tear.
does the order of skincare products matter?
hey everyone!! today I’ll be talking about the order of skincare products and why it’s important to have order with them 🌟 going off this graph, I do not use an eye cream and my routine is the “day” order for both morning and night routines. you should be applying your skincare products in order of thinnest to thickest. this is because the thicker products like moisturiser, eye cream etc, take longer to penetrate into the skin. if you were to put your thinner products after the thicker ones, then those products may not be getting their full effects. 1. cleanser helps to get rid of dirt, oil, makeup, sunscreen off of your face from the day. cleansing is the most important step of a skincare routine my favourites CeraVe - SA Smoothing Cleanser Kiehl's - Ultra Facial Cleanser 2. toner toner helps to reset your pH level and aids in getting rid of the excess oil, dirt etc. (you do not need a toner! for some people, this is an unnecessary step and they may not need it 🤗 ) my favourite PAULA'S CHOICE - Pore-Reducing Toner 3. serum everyone’s serum needs are different, apply your favourite my favourites NATURIUM - Niacinamide Serum 12% Plus Zinc 2% NATURIUM - Azelaic Topical Acid 10% The Ordinary - 100% Organic Cold Pressed Rose Hip Seed Oil 4. eye cream again like toner, some people love using eye cream, others don’t, it’s all up to you and your skincare needs :) 5. moisturiser hydration !! my favourites CeraVe - CeraVe Moisturising Cream Kiehl's - Ultra Facial Cream 6. SPF sunscreen is super important during the day, even if it’s not sunny outside, SPF is crucial. my favourite LE TAN COCONUT SPF 15
