New Year, New Beauty Routine

As amazing and exciting as WOM always seems to be the truth is it’s really taken a toll on my mind and body.  I swear I’ve aged a decade over the last year.  So one of my resolutions for 2014 is to take better care of myself both inside and out.  Inside by taking more “Mandy” time to un-plug and de-stress.  Outside, by amping up my beauty routine and understanding that mother nature is going to be less gracious each coming year and I need to fight the good fight with every tool I have in my arsenal.

The trick is my skin is…well tricky.  It’s oily, it’s dry, it’s super sensitive, and it’s been the bane of my existence my entire life honestly.  But I feel like I’m finally getting a handle on it.  So here’s the skinny…I’m alternating the Mario Badescu anti acne serum with the Amore Pacific moisturizing mask each night and spraying the Mario Badescu rose water spray on each morning.  And shockingly my skin is brighter, and looking all around healthier without breaking out.  

For my eyes, that struggle has just begun as it appears my eyes (or rather the bags under them) are where I’m going to age first.  At night I’m using HollyBeth Organics eye cream which is ah-mah-zing.  And for the day the Saint Laurent touche eclat is a game changer.  Everyone rush out and buy this product.  I promise you won’t regret it.

Lastly I’ve recently begun using the Clarisonic Opal which I’ve been assured by numerous people that it will take back that decade I feel I’ve lost this past year.  And when all else fails a little Lollia bubble bath and HollyBeth Organics body oil soak in the tub with a big glass of red wine seems to do the trick.  So Loves, please share if you have any beauty secrets I need to know about?  truly, MKR
