Thank you for all the wonderful birthday wishes. I had the best birthday ever! I can’t believe that I turned 34; however I don’t feel any older than 24. I guess that is why I get asked a lot about what I do to look so fabulous. So today on “uptownfashionbyjess” I will be sharing my tricks and secrets on looking so fab!
I honestly don’t use a lot of product on my face and I like to keep it all natural. I’ve always kept a pretty simple skincare regimen. The thing that I find that works great on my skin is using a good moisturizer, followed by a hydration spray and a good make-up product. I am a strong believer of good make-up in your cosmetic bag.My favorite things that I wear throughout the day are my shimmer from Bobbi Brown and red blush that I like to mix together to get that beautiful glow. Also, two of my favorite moisturizing products that I use are Aveeno Daily Moisturizer SPF 15 and Le Mer moisturizing cream. I like to use a moisturizer that has SPF to protect my skin from the sun and indoor light.Wearing a hat during the hot weather is also effective in protecting my skin from harmful sun damage. I have also just discovered a great skincare brand called Origins. I recently tried a GinZing treatment lotion mist that hydrates and refreshes your skin. My skin really loves this product and I’m a huge fan.
Below are some skincare secrets that were passed down from my Mom that I have learned over the years.
Water: Drink lots of water. It will keep your skin looking healthy and will keep you hydrated for your internal health.
Food: Eating lots of healthy snacks, like almonds, will slow down the aging process.
Humidifier: Having a humidifier in your house, especially in your bedroom, helps to avoid colds in the winter and keeps your skin moisturized.
If you want younger looking skin, it is important to NOT neglect your skin. So be sure to smooth on a serum moisturizer on your face and neck daily. I’m currently on the hunt for a really good cleanser, eye cream and mask to do once a month on my face. Feel free to share some of your skincare secrets in the comment section. I would love to hear them!
