Although the face maybe the first area we tend to put a lot of effort into maintaining its youthful radiance, little do we know that the neck and décolletage are actually the first areas to show signs of premature aging. For most of us, me included, it's hard to remember to bring your face cream down through the neck when you're in a hurry or to apply SPF in your car to these important areas.
Eventually, the skin on our neck will start to become more elastic and sag (turkey neck ladies?) and if we don't take preventative measures sooner than later we will end up looking a lot older than we really are. Lucky for us there are some great preventative products available that target that particular area - Firmarine Neck Cream by Erno Laszlo. Formulated with spirulina maxima and antioxidant vitamins, this firming cream will help tighten and tone up lax skin and restore its supply of collagen and elastin. Make sure you apply this over a cleansed neck and massage in upward motions over the neck and chin line for the most benefit.
Also, don't forget to apply your favorite SPF the best step to fight premature aging!
Jouer means 'to play' in French and that's exactly what we did at yesterdays video shoot! Some great makeup tutorials are coming your way, highlighting some of the spring/summer makeup trends that are not only gorgeous but also easy to re-create on yourself. We were very excited to get the chance to work with Jouer Cosmetics new spring product additions during the shoot.
I'm a huge fan of this makeup brand because of their accessible and easy to travel with packaging, amazing sheer and creamy formulations that accentuate your natural beauty, and of course beautiful color selections. New in for spring are Jouer's Cream Eyeshadow Crayons in Abstract (soft black), Avant Garde (navy charcoal), Rococo (french vanilla), Renaissance (bronzed plum) and Baroque in soft gold. All of these crayons have a beautiful shimmer to them, are crease-resistant and water proof.
Sometime I'm in a rush in the morning and don't have time to use multiple products. That's when products like Jouer's Tint in Honeysuckle come in handy. This new tint comes in my favorite color for cheeks (peach) and literally adds a subtle flush of color that looks completely natural. You can also sweep it across your lips and out the door you go!
Also new in from Jouer are six gorgeous lip products. If you like more bold and solid color you'll love the Tinted Lip Enhancer in Bellini, Cosmo and Shiraz. Or if you desire high gloss shine and a bit of color you'll like the Pearl Lip Enhancers in Nude, Peach, and Rose. Not only do all of these give great color to the lips without feeling sticky, they also serve as a conditioning and plumping lip treatment with Vitamin E, Shea Butter and Jojoba Oil.
