Watch my second application of the Image Skincare Lightening Lift Forte in my peel series tackling pigmentation, sun spots and fine lines. This lactic peel wonderfully evens out skin tone and brightens and illuminates the skin. Follow up with the power trio Iluma Brightening Serum, Prevention+ SPF 50 and the Ageless overnight Retinol Mask*. 👍
I am really pleased with my lash growing experiment. I have to say I was pretty skeptical if applying a nourishing peptide and plant stem cell blend would make a visible difference. Well, I have been seeing fuller and now longer lashes - and love it! The Image Skincare Brow and Lash Serum is prescription free and retails at $49.-. Available at Skinvigo .

Summer in Vermont. There is nothing quite like it.
But while craving sun, please know the facts about the dangers of sun exposure and how to protect yourself. (Repost Skin Inc.) Unprotected exposure to UV rays - outdoors or from a tanning bed - are never a good choice. Get yourself checked at your dermatologist now, ask me about sun screens, buy an awesome hat and treat yourself to porcelain skin this summer!
We look for anything from vitamins to antioxidants in our skincare, but what we actually put in our bodies is also mirrored on the skin. The skin - gut connection is put increasingly more in focus, especially with regards to inflammation such as eczema and acne. This means not only identifying possible triggers (anything from processed food to sugar), but proactively managing inflammation with anti-inflammatory foods and herbs such as walnuts or turmeric. Probiotics (fermented food such as kefir or sauerkraut) as well as prebiotic foods (for example garlic and leeks) are also helping to restore a healthy gut. Bon Appetit!
Like this 🌸 beautiful comedo 🌸 (aka blackhead) that was extracted. Comedones are clogged hair follicle (pores). Keratin and oil block the pore and the exposure to oxygen turns them black. A comedo may or may not become inflamed and turn in to a papule or pustule. In any case, leave the extraction to the pros. It brings your esthetician joy and is safer for your skin 😝. At home, wash your face with the correct cleanser and exfoliate regularly to keep pores open. Stay away from any comedogenic ingredients that block pores.
