When it comes to Skincare I must admit, it's never been on the top of my list. With age comes fine lines, wrinkles and crows feet, 30 is right around the corner. I've realized its time that I need to take extra steps to prolong the look and feel of my skin. I have heard the name La Mer here and there, but never really understood the product until I dropped by my local Nordstrom's location. This is where I met my girlfriend Lisa, she gave me the La Mer skincare lesson 101.
Considering La Mer skincare is quite an investment, I wanted to make sure that I can pick out two or three items that I can slowly incorporate into my usual skincare routine. Lisa helped me narrowed it down to 3 simple products (The Treatment Lotion, Soft Cream & The Eye Concentrate) these three products would give me the best results for my basic skincare needs.
The TreatmentLotion- Lisa recommended adding a toner to my skincare routine. I was skeptical about the benefit of using a toner, and to be honest I wasn't quite sure what a toner even was?! She suggested I use a few drops on my face after I cleanse my face to prep my skin. This toner is similar to a “Red Bull” it helps to give your skin the kick start before you apply your daily moisturizer. After using this treatment lotion I can really see a difference, leaving my skin smother, more hydrated and even helped to even out my skin tone.
La Mer Moisturizing SoftCream- Moisturizer, this I can say is the only thing I’ve tried to keep up with when it comes to my daily skincare routine. I must admit I have jumped around from product to product and tried everything. Sampling this soft cream moisturizer my skin has never felt better. This cream moisturizer is a very light and non-greasy, which I love! The good thing about this moisturizer is a little bit goes a long way, you could easily stretch your use six months, making this an even better investment.
La Mer ‘TheEye Concentrate’ - This concentrated cream utilizes three unique forms of Miracle Broth to deeply condition, smooth and hydrate the delicate eye area. It significantly reduces the appearance of dark circles, lines and wrinkles for a luminous new life. If you could swing an eye cream into your skincare routine this would be the one!! Apply this eye cream before bed, allowing this to activate into your skin while you sleep. It truly works wonders, let me tell you.
Today, it’s all about what makeup you can use to cover up your face, but the real focus should be finding a solution to prevent and protect what we have underneath that makeup. To me this is a huge investment, it will only save you time and money in the long run, especially if you start early. I recommend taking the time to check out your local Nordstrom counters to learn what works best for your skin, if you are local be sure to ask for Lisa at The Northshore Mall in Peabody!
No one can prevent aging, but La Mer is helping one wrinkle at a time!
