Do you ever feel like your foundation is gliding off your face 3-4 hours after applying it in the morning?

Your skin care routine and everything you do before applying your foundation is what will make a difference in how your foundation lasts all day, or doesn’t.

3.5 years ago I went through a lot of problems with my skin, I had to try SO many things and products and home remedies to get it to a healthy place that I am comfortable with. Thats when I found a product line that really worked for me, and my passion for helping women find their best skin possible was born!

I used to tan, in the booth, regularly. I went from the lightest ivory shade of foundation to Beige 3/4 shades. When I stopped I had to have a reality check with my blackheads, clogged pores, extreme discoloration, dark spots, red spots, and just yucky dry feeling of my skin texture. Check out the video tutorial where I share my winter routine in the morning.

List of Products I use:

Step 1: Moisturizer – I am using this moisturizer in the winter time, then switch to a different one that’s lighter for summer. This moisturizer last me 2/3 years because I only use it in the winter starting mid fall. Use this as a substitute if you don’t want extreme moisture and repair like I did – Lightweight Anti-aging Moisturizer.

Step 2: Eye Cream – Amazing! Totally necessary!  The customized applicator elevates this cream to a new eye-deal of beauty. Perfectly sculpted to fit the shape of the eye, the metal tip is designed to help impact microcirculation as it gently massages the undereye area to help reduce puffiness. The other eye cream I use and mentioned – Firming eye cream, and its a great one to start with if you don’t use anything right now.

Step 3: Lip Balm – An absolute must in winter time!!!!

Step 4: Foundation Primer with SPF – This is going to be one of the key products to keep your foundation on all day!

Step 5: Foundation – I am using liquid foundation during the winter time in the Luminous formula. On the warmer days I use a matte wear foundation in the same shade and the same formula but with a different finish that also controls my oils. Foundation brush.

Step 6: Finishing powder – aka Translucent powder! I often carry this one with me when I travel through airport, or even during the day when my skin gets a little oily in the afternoon. A quick brush on of the finishing powder and shine all goes away!

Do you wish you had skin to go naked in public?

Do you want to shed off years from your face?

I may not be the doctor with all answers, but I’ve struggled with my skin for years and once I found a routine that changed my skin I knew I needed to share it with others.

Here are a few tips to keeping your skin glowing no matter what age, no matter the time of year!

 1. Pomegranates

This year my husband and I changed our diet to all organic, or at least as much as possible, and immediately noticed changes in my skin. My secret weapon this year is Bone Marrow Broth and Pomegranates. Seriously amazing! I eat 1/3 to 1 full pomegranate a day at least 6 days a week. My favorite meal to include it in is Breakfast with Sigi’s yogurt (icelandic formula yogurt), organic almond granola and organic ground flax seed. Super amazing for you! Here is more on the benefits of pomegranates: an article from shape.com

2. Bone Marrow Broth

Before winter came my husband and I decided that we would eat soup at least 3 days a week. I have actually enjoyed making soup from scratch and instead of water I use bone marrow broth. Bone marrow is incredibly beneficial for your skin, nails, eyes, and brain. Read more about the benefits of Bone Marrow Broth here: Article on Bone marrow broth from Shape.com

3. A strict regiment for your skin.

I used to fall asleep with my makeup on and wake up in the middle of the night on the couch only to crawl into bed with my mascara racing down my face. After college when I rented my first big girl apartment and for the first time in my life had buy a mattress, which seemed like the most expensive item ever, I decided to make some changes. Maybe some of you ladies are super regimented and disciplined about your life, not me. I made up rules to follow to trick myself into doing stuff I really didn’t want to. Like buying very expensive really white sheets to make sure that I would not ruin them by sleeping with my makeup on. It actually worked, no matter how tired I was, I would wash my face before going to bed just so that my fancy sheets and pillow cases would be stark white.

Point is, wash your face at night. Take your make up off. Allowing your skin to breathe and rest during the night is just as important as sleep itself is important, daily. You take the time to eat 3 times a day, and you know you need to work out to stay healthy, so I hope you get inspired to take your skin seriously this year too.
