How to make your shaving last long

AA8A7481-Exposure

Okay ladies! We all know how to shave, right?! But the real question is… Do we know the proper way so that your skin stays smooth for as long as possible?

As a spokesperson for Schick Hydro Silk, I want to give you my shaving tips to help keep those pesky hairs away for as long as possible:

First things first…you want to make sure you take your time because the last thing you need is a nasty cut from your razor. Ouch! Start off with exfoliating your skin the day before you plan to shave to take away any dead cells that might be clogging any trapped hairs – To get the best result, start from the bottom and work your way up in circular motion.

The following day, take a quick shower or bath (no more than approximately 5 minutes) to avoid your skin from wrinkling from being in the water too long –  You want to get as close to the hair follicles as possible, so keep it short! The whole point of this prep is so you can remove your natural oils and perspiration, which makes it 60% easier to cut the hairs. Immediately after, I use an ample amount of the Skintimate SkinTherapy Moisturizing Shave Gel, as it will help it easily glide over the skin. I recommend that you do not to use soap because it can clog your razor, not giving it the proper shave. Plus, soaps can cause dryness, unlike the shaving gel.

When I select a razor, I make sure it’s one that will offer everything I need, which is why I always go with the Schick Hydro Silk brand! My go-to’s are: the Schick Quattro YOU Razor, which allows you to get a close shave with fewer nicks & cuts, the Schick Intuition, which is super easy to use in the shower – you don’t need a shave gel for this product! Next in line, which comes in handy is the Schick Hydro Silk TrimStyle. This chic little device works as a razor and bikini trimmer. It’s the perfect device to take along while traveling so that you don’t have to feel embarrassed with unwanted hairs popping up!

To get the best results, I, as the #SchickAmbassador recommend that you shave with a fresh blade – I normally replace mine after 3 uses. I love the convenience of having Schick Hydro Silk replaceable blades that hang in your shower without the hassle to search for them!

After you complete your shaving, pat yourself dry (do not rub skin), and lather yourself up in good quality lotion, so that your legs look and feel ultra-smooth and sexy for days!

Miracle 10 review plus a giveaway!

Miracle 10

Now that I have *ahem* almost reached my mid-thirties, I have been paying more attention to my skin than ever before. Fine lines on my face, and dark puffy circles are starting to appear.  With that said, I need to make sure I use the best skincare out there. So when I was introduced to Miracle 10, I was excited to test it out because I’ve heard so many great things about this skincare line.

My major skin concerns are underneath my eyes, and my skin looking dehydrated so I got to test out their Miracle 10 “mask” and “eye treatment”.

Miracle 10 eye treatment

I was extremely excited for the eye treatment. Once I started using it I immediately noticed a shift in the firmness and the appearance of my racoon eyes AKA dark circles diminished. Even though I may get plenty of sleep, the dark circles can still hang around due to other factors like pigmentation irregularities and thinning skin. This product contains a combination of Vitamin E, Echinacea extract, Rosemary extract, and sea kelp to create a balanced treatment with antioxidant properties to calm and moisturize the sensitive tissue around the eyes to help you look less tired and more youthful – To be used twice daily.

Miracle 10

I am not a big fan of a lot of clay masks because once it dries it feels like I have a thick layer of rock on my face which, to me, makes me feel uncomfortable. After applying Miracle 10’s “mask”, somehow it felt very comfortable, with a refreshing scent. Just after the first few uses I noticed it left my skin feeling clean, velvety, and rebalanced. It helped my skin look and feel purified, giving me a radiant complexion. My skin is glowing and looking a lot more healthy – To be used twice a week.

Miracle 10 has a full line of skincare products created by The Plastic Surgery Skincare Clinic, and is designed to actively combat signs of aging, including fine lines, dullness and hyperpigmentation as well as acne. In 10 hours, you’ll see noticeable results in smoothness and clarity; in 10 days, visible improvements in discoloration and dullness and in 10 weeks, diminished wrinkles and pores.

What you need to know about Miracle 10:

    1. It’s formulated with the highest quality active ingredients calibrated just below clinical grade to deliver transformative results.
    2. It’s made exclusively in Canada
    3. The products are not tested on animals

L’Oreal Infallible Pro-GLOW Foundation

I’ve teamed up with 29Secrets to share my review on the new Infallible Pro-Glow Foundation by L’Oreal Paris:

My daily beauty regimen always includes foundation as I have pigmented skin. So when I was asked to test out L’Oréal Paris’ latest innovation, Infallible Pro-Glow Foundation, I was curious to see the end result. After applying it to my blotchy skin, I was really surprised how great the coverage was. Not only did it look flawless on, it gave me a natural J.Lo glow that felt lightweight, and there was no need to reapply it on my skin after a full day of wear! I think I found my new fave foundation to add to my makeup bag!
