It made my face feel really great, I actually gave my momma a facial and used it on her as well. She loved it! It did make her face a tiny bit red but nothing major though. I think it’s a little bit more on the expensive side but a little goes a long way.

Top Serums of 2020!
I like all these serums for different reasons. For exfoliating: SUNDAY RILEY - Good Genes All in One Lactic Acid Treatment This has been my go too this whole year, so creamy and hydrating, but still gently exfoliates. One of the best serums I’ve tried to get rid of blemishes and texture. For brightening: CAUDALIE - Vinoperfect Radiance Serum The Brightening Solution (📍) I’m very sensitive to Vitamin C, so this has been my go too for four years for brightening sun spots and hyperpigmentation. It also hydrates my skin which is an added bonus. For summer: THE inkey LIST - Niacinamide Oil Control Serum This is a recent find, I found this gem in March while my skin was really breaking out. During the summer, this serum was really lightweight, but a great niacinamide serum for more combo-dry skin as it contains hyaluronic acid. For winter: Dr Dennis Gross - Stress Rescue Super Serum with Niacinamide (📍) This serum is so creamy and beautiful in texture. It hydrates, but still has that niacinamide to help even the skin tone. This also has goji which is a great antioxidant! 📍= product was sent to me for free

I’m actually shocked at how great this mask is!
PROJECT E BEAUTY - Skin Rejuvenation Photon Mask I can’t even believe how great this mask is! I decided to give LED treatment a try after getting some professional facials and having them use the lights on me. I’ve been battling adult acne for the past 10 years. I was always in a cycle of horrible hormonal acne that never fully went away. The only things that even remotely worked, were some harsh acne treatments. But those dried out my skin so much, It wasn’t worth it for the little bit that they worked. Then I tried this face mask. Just WOW! I’ve been using it for 3 weeks and I currently have absolutely no acne. I haven’t tried the other colours much yet, to see how they work. But the blue light for acne is life changing! Im using the mask for 20-30m minutes, 4-5 days a week. I’m planning on maybe only using it 3 days a week now that my acne is gone, just for upkeep. I can’t wait to try the other colours to see how it works for wrinkles and reducing sun spots. I’ve already thrown away hundreds of dollars in products that only worked a little bit because this is the only thing you need, along with a cleanser and moisturizer.

Say Goodbye to Hair Dye: How to Get Rid of Gray Hair Naturally
Once you reach a certain age, your follicles start producing less melanin, the pigment that gives your hair its natural color. As a result, your hair starts turning white, gray, or silver. While this process usually doesn’t begin before the age of 35, however, many people notice the first signs of graying in their early twenties because of genetics or some health conditions. Unfortunately, I am one of them suffering from prematuring grey. I'd like to share some experience with someone has the same hair concern. While searching for ways how to get rid of gray hair and restore natural hair color, we are worried about the damage caused to hair. The good news is, you may be able to restore your hair’s original color through supplementation, but only in the early stages of graying. To try and reverse the graying of the hair, you should increase your intake of foods that are rich in the following five nutrients - folic acid, vitamin B12, biotin, iron and copper. Except for the food supplementation, you can also combine a nutrient-rich diet with one of the following home remedies for graying hair. COCONUT OIL AND CURRY LEAVES （Pic 2） Simply mix a cup of unrefined coconut oil with a 1/4 cup of curry leaves and heat until you see black residue forming. Let it cool, apply to your scalp, and leave it in for an hour. Repeat twice a week. Please Note： Before you decide to change your diet or start using the remedy, make sure that you’re not allergic to any of the ingredients they contain. If necessary, consult with your doctor first. Do you have any tips on turing grey hair black, please let me know!
