Beauty on a budget

Part 1

Have you ever thought about going to a Med Spa to get Microneedling? Microneedling, in laymen’s terms, is a device with multiple, skinny needles that puncture the skin and help to rebuild collagen. Once your skin peels and heals, you will have plumper/glowier skin. It’s supposed to help with acne scarring and fine lines, as well. An all around great age defy-er. But, not everyone has $2-300 to spend on this procedure every month…

In comes Dr. Pen. An at-home microneedling device that works really well!

Tip: I use a Tranexamic Acid serum (because Melasma, ew) on each section of my face, then microneedle over the serum, so I get MAXIMUM soak-in benefits. Also, I find that doing it this way, doesn’t cause the needle to drag across my skin…using the serum, lets the needles glide much smoother across the delicate skin of your face.

Basically, you can be all in for under $200, saving hundreds by doing this in the privacy of your own home. Now, you’re not going to get all the massaging, candles, aromatherapy–basic pampering you’d get from a spa, but if you’re on a budget (who isn’t) this is a fantastic route to take, with very similar results.

One last tip…if you have a low pain tolerance, you can also get a roll-on Lidocaine. Just roll it all over your face, wait a couple of minutes and voila…a pain free microneedling session!

Let me know what you think! I think it’s worth a try.

This is for all my Visual Friends out there…I wanted to show you what the Microneedling Pen and the serum look like in action. Enjoy!

Moisturizing Hair Care

Bb. Hairdressers Invisible Oil product line has done wonders for my hair. If you have frizzy, coarse (hay-like texture), thick hair…you ought to try this entire product line.

One caveat: My curly haired friends don’t looove it like my wavy/frizzy friends do.

Let’s be real: This line won’t keep everything perfectly straight and neat (like a Brazilian Blowout), but it will give back much needed moisture and keep your hair manageable, healthy, and shiny.

The line contains: A pre-shampoo masque, shampoo, conditioner, heat/uv Primer, and the Game Changer-the Invisible Oil-for a beautiful, silky finish.

*Let me know if you’ve tried this line and how you like it! Click on the pic to be directed to Sephora, where you can purchase the entire line.

A lil video to show you the steps.
