Life Is Busy

Life is Busy

For Moms, August can be an even busier than usual with the end of summer vacation and back to school preparations for the kids.  Add a career on top of that and you’ll see many Moms putting their self-care needs last. Rather than letting yourself go during these busy times, we want to help you simplify your life and your skincare routine so that you love what you see when you look in the mirror.

Here’s a comprehensive, yet quick and easy skincare routine.

M
orning:A quick and easy morning skincare routine is a great way to wake up and protect your skin for the busy day ahead.  

  1. Cleanse your skin with a non-drying cleanser.  I love the lemony scent of our Purifying Botanical Wash
  2. Next do double duty with our C Radiance Moisturizer that provides both antioxidant protection and all day hydration.  
  3. Protect and cover all at once by using a tinted SPF with zinc oxide. My favorite is Elta MD’s tinted sunscreen 
  4. Add a touch of mascara and lip gloss. Voila!  You're ready to conquer the day.

Evening:  Women often skip this step when life gets busy and they’re just too tired. I recommend doing this as soon as you get home in the evening, to help you relax for the night and wash away the impurities of the day.

  1. Cleanse your skin with a non-drying cleanser.  Again, I love the calming lemony scent of our Purifying Botanical Wash
  2. Blend together: Mikel Kristi Vital A Rejuvenating Serum, Bio Peptide Revitalizing Serum, and C Radiance Moisturizerand apply to your face, neck, and chest.  Because we use liposome encapsulation technology with our ingredients, all of our serums and moisturizers can be blended together without worrying about effectiveness. I like to call this “cocktailing.”  That’s it! Your skin is ready to revive itself as you sleep. You’ll love the vibrance and glow of healthy skin. 

Self Care

Use your skincare routine as your self-care time. Take a few minutes in the morning and evening, take a deep breath, and care for your tired skin with these self-care through skincare tips:

  • Be mindful and enjoy massaging your skin and facial muscles when cleansing or applying your serums. Squeeze the brows and the area between the brows. Let your jaw go slack and relax.
  • Create a mindfulness practice within your routine. When you cleanse, tell yourself you are washing away stress, concerns, and circular thoughts. When applying product, think of things you are grateful for or qualities you would like to increase in yourself.  
  • Inhale the scent of the essential oils in your Mikel Kristi products to refresh your senses and calm your mind. 
  • Give yourself some love: when your skin routine is complete, look in the mirror, smile and say “I love you” to yourself.

Book Release - Your Beauty Advocate by Christy Hall

Advocate:A person who speaks or writes in support or defense of a person, and/or cause.

For all the ways to describe who I am and what I do, the word advocate feels the most right. I am not just a PA-C, injector, skincare formulator, and entrepreneur. Those are simply the tools I use to carry out my life’s passion. My mission is to help educate people on the power they have to work with aging on a deep and impactful level, and to help my clients see themselves in a new light that they have control over. The truth is that too many people waste money and sanity on products and procedures that either don’t work, or don’t deliver on the intended outcome. And it's only by education on the structure of the skin, and how aging takes place in the body, that we can intelligently choose what to do when.

An Introduction To Cosmeceuticals
So, you may ask, “Why don’t all skin products work?”  Many of us have bought the newest trendy product that we have read about in a beauty magazine or seen on TV, used it for a few weeks, see no results, and then put it in the cabinet never to be touched again. The fact is that YOU WANT TO SEE RESULTS!  You want your skin to look and feel healthier and younger. However, many beauty products fall short because those amazing “active ingredients” that they advertise aren’t delivered to the right place in the skin, or in the right form to be effective.

Skin Type Myth Busted
Skin Type Myth Busted

by Christy Hall February 03, 2020

Many companies in the business of “Big Beauty” have capitalized on the notion of a customized skincare plan based on your particular skin type. I think we have all taken the quiz, received the result, and went straight to the cash register confident that this custom regimen would be the answer to our skin woes. Cut to three months later, and we are back at a different register, listening to different set of promises … and lather, rinse, repeat.

It really doesn’t matter what “skin type” you have. The four basic daily needs for skin health and anti-aging do not change
