your everyday behaviors actually have a significant influence on what you see in the mirror, so having great skin is not only a question of genetics! the younger you are when you start it, the better, but it is never too late to establish healthy habits.
skincare for me, is more than simply the products that I apply to my skin... it's also about giving it the nourishment that it needs. today I’ll share with you five products that I use in my skin care routine.
— bio performance skin filler serum
if you have never tried any shiseido skincare products, you are seriously missing out! the two serums in this set work together to clearly volumize the skin and provide the quick benefits of aesthetic procedures. I apply them as the last step before moisturizer.
the silkiest, most moisturizing texture is found in the night serum, which is the one you should begin using. I absolutely love it! it has a nice runny texture that spreads over the skin so smoothly, so you only need a little pump.
the day serum is equally stunning. little bit of this one, which has a creamier texture, goes a long way. after using the day serum for a few hours, my skin looks visibly plumper and more juicy looking. the duo is designed to be applied as the last step before moisturizer.
— conscious grown alchemist lip balm
I love this lip balm, it’s so hydrating and doesn't make lips feel more dry once its worn off! I usually apply a small amount to fingertips and smooth evenly over lips. it has such a gorgeous scent and leaves my lips so soft and nourished! a perfect bag essential for on the go, I must say. besides its amazing packaging, this lip balm lasts for ages!
— shiseido perfect cleansing oil
I always choose using a cleansing oil or a cleansing balm as a makeup remover. my impression is that it makes makeup removal more effective while keeping my skin moisturized. that's what this cleaning oil accomplishes. although waterproof mascara requires a little more effort, it eventually fades out. its calming, delicate flower scent is what I appreciate about it the most. I believe it to be lavender, although I might be mistaken.
— slip portofino contour sleep mask
it's challenging enough to go asleep without having your mind raced by monday meetings! even if a sleep mask can't stop those meetings, it can still be useful when attempting to get some rest an it actually increases the comfort of sleep! the contour on the inside of this mask provides space for my eyelashes to sit during beauty sleep. I promise you… you’ll get addicted to this sleep mask!
— shiseido’s wrinkle smoothing day cream SPF 23
we all know how important is to protect our skin from the sun! I always apply this cream in the morning, as the last step in my skincare routine. I start by doting the cream on my 5 points of the face: forehead, nose, chin, and both cheeks. after smoothing it in my skin, I apply an additional pearl-sized amount to my neck (such an important step!). its texture is very light and helps with moisture.
shiseido's benefiance wrinkle smoothing day cream is one of their best-selling, daily anti-aging moisturizer and also offers SPF 23 sun protection… I have dry skin so this moisturizer deeply hydrates my skin and visibly firms it.
