Skincare



Most days I'm all over my skin care regime...washing and scrubbing and masking and peeling and exfoliating diligently with great enthusiasm.



But also some times I feel like this in the morning and the last thing I want to do is my complicated skin care regime.



It's so much easier not to wash my face, or shower for that matter.

But alas, I do and it always makes my skin feel great.  Same moto applies to exercise..I dread and then I'm happy.

I have dabbled in all kinds of different face washing regimes from Mary Kay to Kate Sommerfeld to Sunday Riley...I swear I've tried every brand out there.  But- I have to say that since having a facial done at Polished in Saskatoon and being introduced to the Éminence products, I have not turned back- I also haven't had a breakout and my skin is loving it.

If I were to pick one of the products for you to try- I would suggest the Facial Recovery Oil; it has been exactly what I needed over the long, cold, dry winter.

The other thing I have been doing every two months is getting dermaplaning done at Prairie Bliss Spa- dermaplaning, if you haven't heard of it, is when they take a small razor and take a layer of your skin off along with the nasty peach fuzz.  I don't know about you but my skin is getting fuzzier and fuzzier as I get older and it's driving me insane.  I love how my face feels when she is smooth and shiney- my makeup also goes on better and my skin soaks up the Éminence products better too.

Dermaplane before and after...and yes, I'm wearing different things--only because I forgot to take the before picture in January so I had to wait until my March appt to post. Sigh

Everybody's skin is different and it just comes down to finding something that works for you.  I'm happy that I have finally found a line that smells divine and a technique that is working like magic on my old face.

  3. O my goodness, Id love to find the "it" product for me but I think it's just a mixture of hormones, age and skincare products. I have found plain old cetephil is the best for my skin. 😆

  7. Hmm, I don't think I really knew what derma planing was before this post. Does it hurt?
