As I am getting ready for Fall, I’m excited to add one extra step to my skin routine to help achieve that glow.
No, I’m not talking about the baby glow, I am referring to that perfect glow that anyone can get without getting pregnant. It’s natural and only take five minutes every morning for one month to see dramatic results. At the same time, I’m excited to share with you my partnership with Aveda Canada. As a huge fan of their products, this is one line that I hold really close to my heart because it’s helping me maintain some balance with my skin during my pregnancy. This is also perfect if you are noticing your skin getting into flux as it’s transitioning from one season to the next.
My mornings tend to be hectic. It’s no secret that I am a workaholic. Even when I quit my job, I had a few side projects to keep me busy and going. My typical morning consists of waking up, going over my schedule while I grab whatever breakfast item I can before I hop into a car, usually followed by media previews and maybe a meetup with some entrepreneurs/investors and grab some props for a shoot. There isn’t a lot of time for me to give my skin the necessary attention it needs. Especially with fall and the coming winter, as a blogger I am always chasing the sun to try and get whatever shots I can before it disappears. That’s why the tulasāra line is perfect for women like us.
Every morning, right after I turn off my alarm, I gently dry exfoliate my face and décolleté for one minute in bed. The small facial brush has ultra-soft bristles that help massage my face and at the same time exfoliate any dry and dull cells hovering at the surface. The rounded peaks on the brush help to make sure I get every curve of my face and décolleté, and at the same time promote circulation. Right after, I take two pumps of the radiant oleation oil and massage from my décolleté to my forehead in an upwards and outward motion for one minute. After I have done this, I get up and head off to the bathroom to brush my teeth for a around four minutes while my skin absorbs the radiant oleation oil. Once I’m done, I gently cleanse my face with my favorite cleanser followed by a concentrate serum.
new tulasāra calm concentrate
I initially started using the calm concentrate because my skin was super sensitive after being constantly exposed to the sun. This serum was perfect to help soothe my skin and minimize the redness I had around my cheeks, nose and forehead. Not only did it heal my skin, but it also helped hydrate it and made it feel soft and supple. Overall, it was a huge win-win to make my skin feel as soft as a baby.
new tulasāra bright concentrate
After I noticed a significant improvement in the redness and irritation of my skin, I started using the bright concentrate. This was perfect to help even out my skin tone and minimize the dark spots I had around my cheeks. Plus I love the fact that it had a plumping affect on my skin (bye bye fine lines).
new tulasāra firm concentrate
Full disclosure, I actually use both the bright and firm concentrate at the same time. The bright concentrate helps me get that rejuvenating glow by evening out my skin tone, while the firm concentrate helps me smooth the tricky fine lines I see creeping up around my eyes, nose and lips. As we get older, our skin slowly starts to loose it’s elasticity and whatever natural collagen we have, is dwindling. This concentrate is perfect to help promote the production of collagen and repair any damage that’s happening under the surface of my skin.
With pregnancy, I have to be extremely careful with what products I am using as any chemicals I use on my skin will get absorbed into my system and make their way to my babies. This is one of the reasons I love Aveda, they don’t use chemicals in any of their products. Everything is natural and plant based, no chemicals. No weird reactions to my skin and no side effects. All you get is healthy and glowing skin.
