Download the app today to be a part of #BeautyWithoutBarriers and show the world what beauty means to you!Shakira recently performed at the Super Bowl 2020, and viewers around the world were blown away by her youthful appearance as well as her singing and dancing. Although the pop star is in her early 40s, she has the smooth, glowing skin of someone much younger. In fact, she doesn’t look much different now than she did in the early 2000s, when she first found mainstream success. While some of Shakira’s youthful appearance is due to good genes, an anti-aging skincare routine can help you achieve a similarly glowy look. Here are some key natural anti-aging tips, as well as some of our favorite products to keep you looking young no matter what your age.Anti-Aging Tips For Your Daily RoutineLiving a healthy lifestyle is the easiest way to fight off the signs of aging. Some of the best ways to prevent aging are small things that don’t require much effort. Incorporating these tips into your routine at a young age is the best way to keep your skin looking youthful for a long time. Here’s what you should be doing as part of your daily routine for healthy, happy skin. 1. Wear sunscreen every day, even if you’re not spending much time outside. Putting on sunscreen in the morning should be part of your daily routine. Even small amounts of sun exposure can lead to discoloration and spots on your skin. Sun exposure also breaks down collagen in your skin much faster than it would naturally. Collagen is the substance that keeps your skin looking full and supple. Look for a physical sunscreen that doesn’t have any harmful chemicals or irritants. There are also many makeup brands that include SPF in their foundations for a little bit of extra protection, which are good to add to your makeup routine. 2. Carry a water bottle with you throughout the day to stay hydrated. We all know we’re supposed to be drinking plenty of water, but sometimes it can be difficult to put this into practice. Keeping a water bottle with you makes it much easier to drink water whenever the urge strikes. You should also keep dehydrating drinks like alcohol and coffee to a minimum. Dehydration can make the fine lines and wrinkles in your skin look much more prominent. 3. Maintain a healthy diet full of antioxidants.Antioxidants are a group of nutrients that protect your skin cells from damage. Vitamin C is a particularly great antioxidant for keeping your skin healthy. You should also make sure you’re getting plenty of protein and omega-3 fatty acids in your diet - these nutrients will help your skin maintain good collagen levels and stay hydrated. Keep the amount of sugar in your diet to a minimum, as it breaks down the collagen and elastin in your skin quickly. 4. Exfoliate your skin regularly. Exfoliating is the process of removing the top layer of dead skin cells from your face. There are two ways to exfoliate - chemically or physically. Physical exfoliators use small beads or other rough particles to remove the skin cells from your face. Chemical exfoliants naturally separate the dead skin cells from your face. If you don’t exfoliate, your skin will start to look dull, and your fine lines and wrinkles will look more prominent. Top Anti-Aging ProductsIn addition to maintaining healthy daily habits, it’s important to have anti-aging skincare products in your routine. There’s a huge range of anti-aging products on the market, so you can find products that work well for your skin type. Here are some of our favorite anti-aging products on the market. Dr. Dennis Gross Ferulic + Retinol Anti-Aging MoisturizerThis moisturizer from Dr. Dennis Gross has plenty of nourishing ingredients to keep your skin looking youthful. Retinol is a popular ingredient in many anti-aging products because it increases your skin’s collagen production and healing process. Ferulic acid, the other main ingredient in this moisturizer, is a strong antioxidant that protects your skin cells from damage. Plenty of moisturizing ingredients keep the formula very rich and hydrating.Drunk Elephant TLC Sukari BabyfacialThis is an excellent chemical exfoliant that will not only remove dead skin cells from your face, but will also leave your skin feeling soft and glowy. It contains alpha and beta hydroxy acids, two powerful anti-aging ingredients, but it also is pH balanced to prevent irritation. The result is smoother skin with less prominent wrinkles and fine lines. You won’t need to exfoliate every day - once or twice a week is more than enough to improve the texture of your skin. Sunday Riley CEO Vitamic C Rich Hydration CreamVitamin C is one of the best ingredients for youthful skin, and it’s a key player in this excellent formula from Sunday Riley. Not only does it fight off signs of aging, but it’s also great for treating redness and irritation. This moisturizer helps protect your skin from external stressors that can trigger signs of aging.SkinCeuticals Metacell RenewalThis serum delivers a shot of vitamin B3 to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and even out skin tone. It’s also full of glycerin, which is excellent for moisturizing the skin. Tri-peptide concentrate firms the skin to prevent sagging and create a much more youthful appearance. The serum is very lightweight and doesn’t cause any irritation, making it a good one for many different skin types.

Shiseido Benefiance WrinkleResist24 Intensive Eye Contour CreamA good eye cream is an important part of any anti-aging skincare routine, as the sensitive area around the eyes is very susceptible to wrinkles.

It’s full of ingredients like bio-hyaluronic acid and natural extracts to treat fine lines around the eyes and keep the skin in the area smooth and firm. By maintaining a healthy lifestyle and using reliable anti-again skincare products, you can keep your skin looking smooth and firm for years to come.

are pore bubbling masks worth it? 🧼🛁💬
are pore bubbling masks worth it? 🧼🛁💬
since COVID has started, I know many people are on new (or refining old) skincare journeys and I’ve recently been experiencing some dryness/dehydrating as the winter rolls around, which also aggravates my already oily skin. I’ve worked in the beauty industry for a while and also was formerly an esthetician, so I can get picky with skincare and ingredients. ‼️for reference, my skin type is: combo (oily/dehydrated), formerly acneic, hyperpigmentation prone, and sensitive 🔬I’ve used Dr. Jart in the past and love that it’s a Korean, science-backed brand so I was stoked to try this Porecting Solution Mask! this mask promises fresh, clear glowing skin that deeply cleanses and purifies pores. the mask contains charcoal and saponine, which creates the bubbling effect you see in the above photo. this product does not contain sulfates, paragons, are phthalates. 🛁when I first took it out of its package, I thought there were *two* masks per package instead of one, but if you read the instructions, there’s actually a “mask film” on the actual mask itself that you’re supposed to remove, so make sure to do that! the actual mask is thick and full of product while the mask film is thinner and lighter in color. the directions also give you a tip to massage the mask to release the bubbling/foaming effect - I did this mask with my mom at the same time in separate rooms and she totally didn’t read the instructions so her mask didn’t bubble at all, so I would suggest to definitely massage the mask. 💬I left it on for 20 minutes and it continued to bubble about 5-10 minutes in, then stopped bubbling. you can hear the bubbles pop as the mask sits on your face, which is kinda weird but cool. the mask didn’t slip off AT ALL which is also a huge, even when I put a sweatshirt on over my head. after taking it off, the serum took about another 10 minutes to soak into my skin and my face felt super smooth and my pores looked tighter and more clean. I have a few sebaceous filaments on my nose that I sometimes pick at and as I was rubbing the serum into my skin, I saw that some of the sebaceous filaments on my nose were sloughing off (which is gross, but speaks to how well the product worked)! overall, I would definitely recommend and use this again! if you have oily skin or otherwise clogged pores, sebaceous filaments, blackheads, etc. I would suggest this for you. even if you have dry/normal skin, this would be a good option since my skin didn’t feel dried out at all afterward, even in my dry spell now, and felt rather hydrated and plump. five stars! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Preserving My Curls Overnight
Preserving My Curls Overnight
This is how I preserve most of my hairstyles overnight! I hear many people complain about how their bonnet or scarf is always falling off their head and ending up on the floor once they wake up, I was having the same issue! That is when I decided to create a wrap that would stay on throughout the night while protecting your curls. I hand make them myself and sale on Etsy (shop name is Candee Wraps) if you are interested! 😊

Cleanse your skin like a pro
Cleanse your skin like a pro
Cleansing is the first step of any skin regime, and it's essential to your skin's health that it is done correctly.⁠ ⁠ Cleansing the skin removes makeup, sunscreen, and impurities/pollution built up from the day. ⁠ ⁠ Always use a Ph balanced cleanser to avoid compromising your skin's barrier.⁠ ⁠ I generally switch out my gel cleanser for milk or balm in the winter months as my skin becomes drier. I find milk or balms more hydrating and soothing for the skin. ⁠ ⁠ My go-to right now is BIOLOGIQUE RECHERCHE - Lait Vip O2 Oxygenating Milk Cleanser paired with either the mini glove Biologique Recherche or the Luna Cleaning tool FOREO - LUNA Mini 2 Facial Cleansing Brush Fuchsia to aid deeper cleaning and increase blood circulation while massaging the skin.⁠ ⁠ Try not to skip cleansing at night no matter how sleepy you are, sleeping with your makeup on goes far beyond clogged pores. Sleeping with your makeup on in the long term will prematurely age your skin due to the breakdown of collagen from environmental pollutants left on the skin.⁠ ⁠ Always cleanse your skin twice at night. Double cleansing is key in removing makeup and sunscreen effectively.⁠ Makeup and sunscreen are designed to stick to the skin, and one cleanse just not going to cut it.⁠ ⁠ Use colder water, never hot water to cleanse your skin. Heat is not your skin's friend; it can cause tewl (transepidermal water loss), lead to irritation, dehydration and sensitivity.⁠ ⁠ Avoid cleansing the skin in the shower, the water is generally too hot, and the shower's pressure can lead to burst vessels.⁠ ⁠ Pat dry, do not aggressively rub your skin with a towel - I hear too many times people rub their skin aggressively with a dry face cloth to exfoliate the skin - stop it. Be gentle with your skin; there are better ways to exfoliate your skin - trust me.⁠ ⁠ Which moves me on to P50 lotions BIOLOGIQUE RECHERCHE - LOTION P50 PIGM 400 Follow your cleansing routine with the correct P50 lotion for your skin type. ⁠ P50 lotion is a gentle but effective way to exfoliate, hydrate the skin while maintaining the skin's Ph and respecting its barrier function. ⁠ My go-to P50 right now is Pig400 which also targets hyperpigmentation concerns.⁠ ⁠ More tips and tricks on cleansing the skin below https://www.kimberlydematos.com/post/the-art-of-cleansing ⁠ Dm for p50 recommendations.⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠
