All week long I’ve been focused on prepping my skin so that it looks the absolute best it can. Erno Laszlo said “Beautiful skin requires a commitment, not a miracle” and boy was he right! I’ve noticed throughout my life that when I commit to a regime my skin looks radiant and beautiful, but when I get lazy – it shows. Some of you may have that perfect skin that still looks perfect even when you wash it with Zest, but that is not the case with mine.
So what am I doing this week in preparation for Elton John’s Oscar Party this Sunday? It all starts with my Clarisonic two times a day. I discovered Clarisonic about 6 years ago and it simply has been a game changer with my skin. Regular use of it makes my skin look smoother, less red, more even and just simply more glowy.
I follow with Erno Laszlo Hydraphel Day Cream with SPF 15. This gives my sensitive skin the extra hydration it needs this time of year and the SPF 15 protects it from the harmful UVA/UVB rays. We should all know by now that 80% of wrinkles and pigmentation are from daily exposure to the sun. Whether it’s rain or shine including a broad spectrum in your daily face moisturizer is the best anti-aging treatment you can do for yourself. For my eyes the Erno Laszlo Luminous Eye Complex brightens, de-puffs and hydrates. With my crazy schedule these days I sure need all of that for my eyes.
Since I’ll be wearing a sleeveless dress my 47 year old arms need a little extra attention. I’m using Mio’s Shrink To Fit Cellulite Smoother two times a day on my upper arms just to tighten them up a smidge. I’m already pretty toned from lifting our 9 month old baby around, but the skin needs just a little extra attention.
Last, but certainly not least, St. Tropez is my best friend this week. I’ve exfoliated and have been using the Self Tan Bronzing Mousse every other day in the AM before I get dressed. By the time I’m done with my makeup it’s completely dry to the touch.
I’ll touch base before my flight this weekend to share with you my essential beauty travel tips!
