Dermaplaning Do's and Don'ts

Have you ever heard of dermaplaning? It can be tricky to understand the true concept of this when you see tools everywhere that claim to promise you professional results. According to skininc.com, “Dermaplaning is a simple and safe procedure for exfoliating the epidermis and ridding the skin of fine vellus hair (peach fuzz).” This treatment will make your skin appear brighter and smoother after each treatment.  
Look, I’m sure the idea of having the tool against your face is terrifying. Trust me, the idea worried me too. A lot of my friends show videos of their clients getting it done and the results continue to amaze me. You may see products in the market that claim to provide the same results as you would as a professional dermaplaning treatment. Unfortunately, the results are not the same. You are at risk of scratching or creating microtears into your skin if anything. Plus, it is difficult to properly disinfect a razor blade.
What is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning tools you see in stores are more like razors and do not provide the same results as professional dermaplaning.  Healthline.com states, “ Dermaplaning is a skin treatment that uses an exfoliating blade to skim dead skin cells and hair from your face.”  A new blade is used for each treatment to avoid the spread of bacteria and contamination. Count me in!
Benefits of dermaplaning treatments 
As we age, cell turnover rate decreases, which means exfoliating 1-3 times a week becomes crucial to help shed dead skin cells. Another benefit of dermaplaning is that by removing “vellus hair” (peach fuzz), your makeup can blend easier. Not only that, but you will notice your skincare products penetrate into the skin more effectively after doing this professional treatment.
Safe for pregnant women
This treatment can be a great option for women who are pregnant looking for safe skincare treatments. Dermaplaning can also be a gentler alternative to waxing. Oftentimes, waxing or threading can irritate your skin and cause acne breakouts. 
**Disclaimer: Please consult with your esthetician or dermatologist before considering dermaplaning treatment if you have sensitive skin or are pregnant. This treatment may cause irritation to acne-prone skin, those with rosacea, or sensitive skin.

Kylie x Grinch - Worth the Hype?
Kylie x Grinch - Worth the Hype?
Review time!!! I just received the entire Kylie Cosmetics Grinch Collection in the mail this week & I want to break down each product and tell you what I loved and didn’t love. Palette: I’m not one that reaches for tons of colour usually but all the greens in this palette are gorgeous! There’s a mix of matte and shimmer shades, and as usual, the shadows blend like a dream! The good thing about this palette is that there are still some neutral shades rather than just greens. I definitely appreciate the mixture of shades. Shadow Sticks: The Kylie shadow sticks are probably one of my favourite products they have ever released. They are so extremely pigmented, and so easy to apply. They’re basically fool proof, and they set as a shadow. If you haven’t tried them out, I highly suggest you do! In this collection we have a super pretty light shimmery green, light gold, and two rosy toned shadow sticks. Shimmer Eye Glazes: This product is insane. They are a super intensely pigmented eyeshadow that leaves the lids looking wet & dripping in glitter! One swipe of these on the lid is literally all you need for that intense shimmer. If you’re someone who loves super shimmery eyeshadow, I recommend giving the Kylie Cosmetics Shimmer Eye Glazes a try. This collection came with 2 shades: a minty turquoise green and a gold - & I’m obsessed and so happy to be adding these to my collection!! Olive Kyliner: My go to liquid liner is the black Kyliner, so i wasn’t surprised when i loved the easy application and long wearing quality of this olive Kyliner! The liner applies a lighter olive green and dries down to a deeper olive shade. It’s definitely not something I’d reach for everyday, although it’s definitely cute for the holidays or even for a pop of colour to a neutral eye! Blush: I am a huge fan of the Kylie Cosmetics Blushes as opposed to the other blushes I’ve tried from the brand this one had some shimmer in it! It’s quite similar to the NARS “orgasm” blush but with a stronger pink hue. I love the shimmer in it, it adds a pretty glow to the cheeks, perfect for the holidays.. or any day really :P Highlight: Def on theme, but probably my least favourite product in of the collection :( Don’t get me wrong, it’s super blinding and glowy. Although, once I applied to my face it showed off as very green. Personally I don’t want a green glow on my face! But hey, if that’s your vibe that’s cool! Definitely not a highlight I’d reach for everyday. Lip Kit: Obsessed. This red is EVERYTHING! This Lip Kit is one of the best reds I have ever tried. It has a matte finish and is extremely long wearing. I know it’s sold out but a similar shade would be “BOSS” by Kylie. Lipsticks: These shades are gorg for the holidays and I love the shade range! Long wearing & comfortable on the lips. High Glosses: Kylies high glosses are high shine, but very sticky! So if you’re not a fan of sticky glosses you won’t love these. These shades are perf for the holidays and everyday!
First Aid Beauty Moisturizer: the winter winner!
First Aid Beauty Moisturizer: the winter winner!
Winter is approaching! That means dry and cold air will be hitting your skin hard every time you go out which as we all know will unfortunately translate into skin redness, dryness and itchiness. This is why having a heavy soothing moisturizer with the RIGHT ingredients becomes an essential. I present you the love of my life... the Fist aid Beauty Moisturizer.FIRST AID BEAUTY - Ultra Repair Face Moisturizer What makes it different? This moisturizer does contain all the classic ingredients every moisturizer needs aka glycerins, humectants and fatty alcohols yet it takes it a step forward by adding 4 hero ingredients: ceramides, green tea and fever few extract and squalene. Ceramides are lipids that form the skin barrier and help retain moisture. Without the proper amount of ceramides the skin becomes red irritated and extremely dry! It’s beneficial therefore to use skincare products with ceramides such as this one... especially in the winter. Green tea and fever few extract are famous for their anti inflammatory purposes which will help reduce irritation, redness and swelling again great to help tackle those winter air side effects. Lastly squalene not only has the same anti inflammatory properties as the two ingredients stated above but also has antioxidant benefits! Therefore it will be able to protect your skin from pollution and environmental stressors through the day. Making this a great moisturizer both for the day and for the night time. What was my experience? I’ve been using this moisturizer every morning for the past 6 weeks, keep in mind I have oily acne prone skin (so I tend to experience a lot of redness caused by the acne) and I have surface dryness due to all the active treatments I use including tretinoin! This means i need a moisturizer that’s quite thick, has soothing properties but doesn’t feel too heavy on the skin or breaks me out. This moisturizer is exactly that. Over the course of the first week of using this moisturizer I could already visibly see improvements in my skin! What’s the verdict? The first aid beauty moisturizer has quickly crawled its way up to my top three of all time favorite hydrators. I think everyone no matter their skin type or skin concerns will definitely benefit from this! If you are looking to reduce your redness, protect and moisturize your skin and keep your glow through the winter this is for you!
