Back To Basics

With all the marketing in the beauty industry it’s easy to get caught up in all the nonsense. Believe me, I am so guilty! I would bet that there are, at the very least, five different types of facial cream or serum inside the drawer of my bathroom vanity now. They all claim to do something different: anti-wrinkle, glow and moisture. The thought of all that clutter gives me anxiety.


So here is my advice for those wanting to keep skincare simple: stick with vitamin C and E. Vitamin C helps promote cell turn over, which helps give skin that beautiful glow. It also helps combat sun damage. Vitamin E helps repair skin, protects it from toxins in the environment and keeps moisture.


My favorite products are from The Body Shop. I particularly like the Vitamin E Intense Moisture Serum and the Vitamin C Skin Boost Instant Smoother. The vitamin C smoother makes a great foundation primer, which is an added incentive.
