So as I mentioned previously I'm still all about the Clarisonic and use it daily. I've been using it every day for the past 2+ years and it finally died a few months ago. I had to go a few days without one while I was waiting for my new one to arrive and I hated not having it! I take this baby everywhere with me. I thought about getting the Clarisonic Mia (the travel one) but really, the regular size one is just as easy to pack and take with me so I didn't get it (yet).
I am curious about the Clarisonic Opal though, has anyone used it? Would love to hear reviews!
Now, let's talk about vitamins. I've been taking a women's multi-vitamin, Calcium (+Magnesium) Supplement and Vitamin C supplement ever day for the past few years. My parents have always been big on vitamins but I never really cared until I got old enough to care and then after talking to my doctor who recommended taking them, I've been very consistent about taking them. I recently added Biotin to my daily vitamins which is suppossed to help with hair, nail and skin health and although I've always had fairly healthy hair and nails, I figure it can't hurt to get some additional help in that department. I know a lot of people ask me how my hair grows so fast and so thick. It mainly has to do with genetics but I think taking these vitamins can really help too!
One last thing... I'm always interested in reading about skincare because I like to be informed of the products and processes out there and I was recently sent Simple Skin Beauty which I've read bits and pieces of it, mainly because I only read the parts that I'm interested in but she covers stuff like UV protection, what kinds of ingredients to look for in products based on your skin type and a great section about acne. I do go visit my dermatologist occasionally but I feel silly peppering them with the gazillion questions that I have (because I already ask a ton of questions) so I love finding books like these to be able to answer some of my questions and I learn a lot that I didn't know before so that I can try to take care of my skin the proper way. I'm all about prevention so whatever I can do to prevent the aging process, I'm all over, even if that is reading about it!
Anyway, I know skincare is such a personal matter because everyone reacts differently to different products but I hope what I've shared may inspire you to take a different look at your skincare routine and see if you need to add anything else or do something different. I know I get stuck in a rut a lot so I love to find out the products that others use and love so please do share in the comments if you've come across something that has enhanced your beauty routine!
