Ask and you shall receive…. It’s been long overdue, but here is my full product list of all my high-end favorites and staples for beauty products that I use. Just like I mix up my style with high/low fashion, I do the same with my beauty products. As much as I love to get more for my buck and save money, I also like to treat myself every once in a while with a few of my favorites—-all things beauty related. As for my daily beauty routine, for the Summer, I alway tend to keep it pretty simple. For the most part, my routine for day and night throughout the year is pretty simple as a whole. Sometimes, I like a little more glam every now and then, but for the most part I like to keep it fresh and simple. As a beauty enthusiast, I love trying and testing out different products. Over the years, I’ve acquire some of my favorites and staples that I’ve incorporated into my daily beauty routine.

It’s been some time since my last post on my skincare routine. Here is my updated routine with some of my beauty + skincare tips and tricks that are beneficial for your skin and overall health. Sit back, relax and grab a come of coffee or water. This will be a long post, but an honest account on all my beauty, healthy and skincare tips and tricks. Enjoy!
I try to make it a daily routine to pamper my skin. Over the years, I’ve used products that contained anti-aging components. But in the last few years, I’ve began to incorporate more anti-aging products to my skincare routine. Now that I’m in my 30’s, I want to keep my skin, youthful, glowing and radiant. I want to prevent early signs of aging and age gracefully through the years. Research has shown that it’s best to start preventative measures sooner rather than later. When you stick to a daily routines, a well-balanced diet, staying hydrated, getting a good nights rest and listening to your skin the results will amaze you.
Lately, I’ve learned a great deal about many anti-aging products and have been experimenting with products that best suit my skin. For this post, I’m sharing my updated skincare routine, along with my healthy + beauty secrets for anti-aging and much more.
First things first, in order for us to look healthy on the outside we need to be healthy on the inside as well. Leading a healthy lifestyle is vital and important in getting great skin. Fruits, Veggies and healthy proteins contain many health benefits along with acting skin solutions. Skincare products are great for our skin, but we can also find active ingredients within our foods that are beneficial to our health and skin. Below are a few staples in my diet that are also great for your skin too. Health is wealth in my opinion. We only have one body, so we need to make sure to treat it right in all aspects.
Staples for me are:
Fave Fruits: Apples, Pitaya, Strawberries, Mango, Lemons, Watermelon, Bananas, blueberries, Avocados, Tomatos, Pears and Tropical Fruits
Veggies: Spinach, Brussel Sprouts, Carrots, Broccoli, Cauliflower, Sweet Potato, Beets, and Zucchini
Healthy Protein: Lean Meats– Chicken, Beef and Turkey
Fish+Seafood: Salmon, Cod, Shrimp, Tuna, Flounder
First things first, always stay hydrated. Hydration is key. A great way to keep hydrated is drinking water, at least 11 cups daily. There was a time where I too, struggled with this but it’s become like second nature to me. It’s best to maintain the habit of drinking water. I like to make it a habit to start first thing in the morning, during the day at various intervals and before I go to bed. It’s so important to stay hydrated, great for your overall health and skin too. In addition to staying hydrated, it’s great to load up on good healthy snacks throughout the day. Almonds are a great go to snack for me. They contain the healthy fatty acids you need and want for healthy skin and body. They also help to slow down the aging process.
Now, aside from a healthy diet is my skincare routine. I like to stick to a routine, and staying consistent. Consistency is key in maintaining healthy looking skin. Although, I’ve changed my products here and there I still stick to my routine for both day and night. For me, I like to keep my skincare routine pretty simple. Here’s what I do:
Morning Skincare Routine:
Facial Oil: On days when my skin just needs extra hydration and moisture (Fall/Winter Months can be used both day and night) Sunday Riley’s Juno Hydroactive Cellular Face Oil
Eye Cream: Caudalie’s Premier Cru Eye Cream
Moisturizer: No 7 Early Defence Day Cream with SPF 30 Every now and then, I’ll use a tinted moisturizer with added SPF: Laura Mercier’s Tinted Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 20 Oil Free in the shade 3C1 Fawn
SPF: Neutrogena’s Hydro Boost Gel With Sunscreen for extra protection
For the night-time I use products that are richer and can absorb into my skin while I sleep. The majority of my products for the night-time have a lot of Anti-aging agents to help keep my skin youthful, hydrated, firm, and rejuvenated. So, while i’m sleeping they can work their magic. So that when I wake in the morning my skin feels nourished, youthful and well rested.
Elixir: Caudalie’s Premier Cru Elixir ( Can be used for the daytime as well)
For Extra TLC Skincare Needs:
For extra hydration and moisture, I’ll often use various hydrating mask and sheet mask. My favorite hydrating sheet mask are: Nature’s Republic Aqua Collagen Solution Ceramide Hydro Gel Mask, Nature’s Republic Real Green Tea Aqua Gel Mask , SKII Facial Treatment Mask , and Too Cool For School Egg Cream Mask Hydration.
If I didn’t get enough sleep the night before, and I wake up with puffy eyes and dark circles— I’ll use some under eye gel mask. They’re great for depuffing, replenishing and reducing the appearance of any dark circles for your tired eyes. My favorite go to under eye masks are: Tarte’s Pack your Bags 911 Undereye Rescue Patches, Peter Thomas Roth’s 24K Gold Pure Luxury Lift & Firm Hydra Gel Eye Patches and Que Bella Professional Moisturizing Gel Eye Mask.
In the event my skin is going thru either hormonal spells or the occasional flair up. A great mask that I’ve tried and recommend is Ballerina Botanicals Detox Mask to find out more about the product click here. Another favorite of mine is Glam Glow’s Supermud Clearing Treatment Mask. If my skin needs a little lift and brightening I use Glam Glow’s FlashMud Brightening treatment.
Be sure to exfoliate your skin at least twice a week. My favorite exfoliator at the moment is: First Aid Beauty’s Facial Radiance Polish. I also love : Dermalogica’s Skin Prep Scrub and Daily Microfoliant Powder Exfoliant.

Nailed it with Red Carpet Manicure!
Just discovered this nail company not too long ago, and I must say they are the real deal. When Red Carpet Manicure reached out to me to collaborate together, I was thrilled! One of my favorite things to do is experiment and try out different products. I also love changing up my nail polish and seeing what works, what last etc…. After trying out RCM products, I soon discovered the amazing quality of the brand and how long-lasting the product stays. I love gel polishes that last longer than the average nail polish. Especially if I have an event or something special to attend, I don’t want to go to the nail salon again and again for a chipped nail or polish. Which is why I love gel nail polish, because it last for over 3 to 4 weeks. But RCM polishes lasted me even a week longer than most gel nail polishes, which was amazing. And perfect, because my nails looks gorgeous even after they had grown out.
Thanks to Red Carpet Manicure my nails dazzled all summer long! Even for holidays, I like to get a little festive. Thanks to Red Carpet Manicure, my nails sparkled with pride for the 4th of July. If you haven’t tried Red Carpet Manicure, I highly recommend that you should. You can find Red Carpet Manicure products at an Ulta near you or shop directly from their website: http://www.redcarpetmanicure.com.
