Hi friends! If you are new here, welcome! Read more about me and AdoptAdventure.com here.
You guys! I turn 30 this year and I can certainly see my skin changing! It's like I woke up one day and my skin was telling me to figure out a new skincare regimen because what I was using did not cut it anymore! If you have been around here for some time you know that my corporate background is working in the field of facial plastic surgery. With this comes a lot of knowledge about understanding exactly where wrinkles, decreased skin elasticity, brown spots, surface blood vessels and skin tags come from. These are the things we don't love to see on our skin. Am I right? I got to learn how and why they can appear from a double board certified physician. The surgeon I worked for, which is the best in the Seattle area, would often say from age thirty on is when women start seeing these changes in their skin. For me he is right! What I am starting to see in my skin today is from sun damage that occured years ago but the impurities are unfortunately showing themselves now. I didn't wear sunscreen enough, wear a hat and I didn't use a proper skincare routine in my teens or twenties. These things, plus my genetics, are why I am now trying to combat forehead wrinkles and discoloration on my face.
Now I'd like to take a moment and say that not all wrinkles and skin impurities can be fixed with skincare products. The severity of this varies person to person and wrinkle to wrinkle. It is always my recommendation that a facial plastic surgeon should ultimately determine the best treatment plan for you - non surgical or surgical treatment options are out there! They are always getting better and changing too. If you feel like you have neglected your skin for too long or you are truly unsure of which way to go, scheduling a consultation with a qualified professional might be a great option for you! More often than not, a consultation fee is minimal and sometimes can be transfered as a payment towards your treatment. If you can gain more confidence from having a more radiant complexion I encourage you to pursue this.
Now that I have put that important information out there let's get back to what is working for me in the season of life I am in. Wouldn't it be exciting if I could tell you that I am seeing a change in my skin after implementing some new products into my routine? Today I am letting the secret out! Here are the five clean beauty products that I have been using for the last three months. They have been a game changer! My skin is brighter, more firm, my wrinkles are not as prominent (I can't wait to see the result in another 3 months) and my pore size is much smaller. Overall my facial skin is more refreshed and rejuvenated! If you have dull skin let my testimony be one that encourages you to make a skincare switch! I would love for these products or this content to be one that increases your confidence like it has mine. Beauty should be good for you and that is why I have linked clean AND effective products from both Beauty Counter and Tula Skincare. It is also why I have educated you about the option of scheduling a consult with a qualified professional. Here is what is working for me, how I apply the products and why I use them!
A little bit of product goes a long way!
The Overnight Resurfacing Peel is all about making your skin more radiant. I apply it to a clean face and wear it overnight (or sometimes during the day if I'm at home with the kids) 3x/week. I remove this product with a washcloth and my dead skin cells wipe away. TIP: I apply extra product to my forehead, 11 (between the brow) and cheek wrinkles for extra exfoliation. Price(less): $63.00 USD
I use the Charcoal Facial Mask to balance my skin. If you want to remove excess oils and impurities from your pores to help minimize the appearance of them this is your product! I apply the Charcoal Facial Mask to a clean face and area treat with it. I typically notice pores on my nose and when it's that time of the month I see excess oil around my chin area. This product is actually pretty cool because not only do you see results afterwards you see the oil come out of your skin while it is on. I leave this clean skincare product on for about ten minutes then wash it off. Price(less): $49.00 USD
The Tripeptide Radiance Serum is what rejuvenates my skin. I maintain a clean complexion with the two products that I previously mentioned and then I brighten and firm my skin. This product also helps to minimize wrinkles! I apply the serum daily at least 1x/day sometimes 2! TIP: Similar to when applying the Overnight Resurfacing Peel I apply extra Serum to the areas I want the most improvement. This tends to be the areas where I did extra exfoliating! This product will transform your skin when used with the two other products listed above! Price(less): $79.00 USD
The Tula Face Filter Primer is all about prepping your skin before applying makeup to it. This product helps to blur your complexion/skins texture and it also provides nutrients to your skin with probiotics + superfoods. I know that when I apply this to prime my skin ; I am protecting my skin and helping it be the smooth canvas that I want! This product comes out of the packaging white and during application turns to a nice tan tinted product. I always recommend this product to anyone that wears makeup. You will fall in love with the Face Filter Primer! It is such a great base! Price(less): $34.00 USD
As we age our skin becomes tired and dull. The Brightening & Cooling Eye Balm, when applied underneath and/or on top of makeup brightens your appearance by giving your skin a glow! I apply this product underneath my eyes just above my cheek bones! I also like to highlight the bridge of my nose with this stuff. The product works like a tube of lipstick and it's really easy to carry in your purse for an on the go pick me up! Bonus- this stuff also has a cooling effect that feels amazing upon application! Price(less): $30.00 USD
