Beauty Basics

February 11, 2014

Having great skin doesn't come naturally for everyone.  Sometimes it takes a lot of work.  I have been very luck all my life to have great skin.  I never had an acne problem, or breakouts.  I take care of my skin with a few really good techniques, and have tried over the years a handful of different products.  I have always been a believer in good skin care and moisturizer.  So today I am sharing my top 8 beauty products and tip and really there are no tricks!  Good skin care starts at the foundation of a good routine and skin care doesn't just stop at the chin line.  Your beauty routine should encompass your whole body. 



Every one of these products I believe in and use.  Actually…I have a lip balm and hand cream in several locations around my home and keep them in my office.  When we think beauty routine we generally think makeup.  There is great importance to this but having great skin goes beyond the chin line as well.    

A game changer for me was this face brush.  I added this to my cleansing routine just recently and can tell you I can tell a big difference.  I only use it three times a week and I recommend you  experiment with how many days works best for you.  It could be too harsh for everyday use.  After a great cleanse I always moisturize not only my face…but my neck as well.  

Eye creams are something I added to my routine in the past few years.  I had tried a few different creams and they seemed to do okay.  Once I tried this Sublimage I knew it was what I was looking for.  Awesome product…but pricey. On the flip side, a jar will last you a long time…a little bit goes a long way. 

Vitamin E oil is a multi use product.  I use it about once a month on my lips for softness right before I go to bed.  It is great for under the eyes as a nighttime moisture treatment on occasion, and for dry spots in the winter months that may appear. Another long life expectancy with this product too! 

A good skin exfoliant and scrub is important to keep you skin glowing.  Very important in the summer months when we expose ourselves to chemical filled pools and lotions for sun protection.  

Last but surely not least is the cuticle oil.  It smells yummy like almonds and is great for your cuticles.  If you have your nails done professionally… ( I do) then you probably at one time or another noticed they apply oil to your cuticles to rub in before you wash your hands.  I keep a small bottle at home to apply to my fingers and toes in-between  salon visits.  


What beauty products do you love? Anything I missed or should know about?
