Muscle is the fountain of youth! If you follow my blog, then you know I believe it, I live it. Now skincare.. don’t backburner that!
I was a tanning bed girl for decades but I stopped that!
My skin was beginning to sag as it was losing elasticity!
When I started competing, I wanted to bring my best package
so I began to focus more on my skin.
My very dear friend and client Alix Mancuso is my esthetician.
We started working together a year ago to revitalize my skin.
We do peels and collagen treatments. I am noticing that the damaged skin is coming to the surface and my skin looks better with each peel! Soon it will be clear from all the sun damage. I do my peels with no down time!
Anti-Gravity Face Lift
Alix also started me on microcurrent face lifts. I do this with her
once a month.
Microcurrent anti gravity lifts are amazing. They retrain the muscles in your face. I have noticed great results from doing them.
They are NON-invasisve! YES! You look tighter instantly. Results are cumulative!
I have an in home version of the Nu-face as well which I do for 5 minutes a day. This is the one I’m using at home. I wish mine was PINK! You can click to see more about it.
Alix is local to St. Louis and works at the Four Seasons Spa.
You can book her there! I hope you do. She is amazing, caring and one of the best people I know. Book here
I was a department store skin care girl for my whole life. I switch brands, buy bits and pieces here and there and it was “ok”. When I started with Alix, she set me straight. She was able to see that I was using the exact wrong types of products and we changed courses. That made all the difference. This was shocking because I thought I knew my skin. I was also piling on so many products! A skin care professional can look at your skin and give you the correct recommendations! It matters! I had no idea! Just like you need a good trainer/coach a skin care professional will change your life.
I am loving the products I’m now using. Babor. These are available in
Alix’s spa They are beyond fantastic. The best anti-aging treatments!
The cleanser I was using was drying me out. My exfoliant was TOO rough for my skin and I used it too often! I probably damaged my skin by over use. For cleansing I use Babor Hy-oil
and my skin never feels dry or tight. I use the HSR lifting products
and the Mimical cream is fantastic post botox. It helps my botox last longer.
Botox: Yes.. I botox. I have done botox for 4 years. I am using
Aurora Med Spa and my girl is Chelsea Becker! She is at the West Country location.
Be sure to sign up for Brilliant Distinctions. You will get discounts on your injections.
Aurora has a skin care club too for discounts. I’ve sent lots of people to them. They are very nice and Chelsea took a full hour for my consult!!
If you use my name at Aurora you can get a
$10 off your botox or $20 off microderm.
Sugar, etc. I find my skin looks worse when I eat lots sugar. I mean sugar like, candy cookies, etc. I am IIFYM but I do try to keep my sugary treats to a minimum. I’m sure not everyone notices changes in their skin with sugar, but it makes a difference for me.
I drink over a gallon of water daily too. I notice a huge difference when I drink less!
I also take amazing vitamins, including biotin for my hair skin and nails.
