Lancome is one of my favorite cosmetics, beauty companies. During a visit to Sephora, my beauty expert suggested that I try the Lancome Visionnaire Advanced Skin Corrector Face Serum. The beauty serum was to maintain my skin's texture, to prevent future wrinkles and to even out some discoloration that I had.
I was skeptical before I tried the oil cleaning method, since my skin is oily and I wasn't sure it would work for me.
The basic idea of oil cleaning is to trick your skin to thinking it has already reproduced enough oil. One of the basic principals of chemistry with skin is that oil dissolves oil.
Always use a natural organic oil. Simply apply one coat and massage into the skin then rinse. Apply a second coat, rinse twice and pat dry. You typically won't need to use a moisturizer after but if you're like me, I follow every wash with a toner then re-moisturize after.
You will feel weird at first and might have a slight breakout the first week until your skin gets used to the new routine.
Your skin will no longer feel dehydrated and won't over compensate.
Rule 1. Always wash your face and or makeup off. Once in the morning and once at night. It doesn't matter how tired, drunk or sick you are wash your face.
Rule 2. Always brush and floss your teeth. You may think you're pretty but nothing is worst then talking to someone with tartar between their teeth and bad breath. A tongue scrape won't hurt either.
Rule 3. Do your hair. Fake it if you have to. Tie it up, splash water on it but at least run a brush through it. You could even put a few bobby pins or accessories pieces in your hair to give the impression that you care about your appearance.
Rule 4. No matter what always do your eyebrows. Even just to hit the grocery store.
Rule 5. Wear mascara. A few simple coats will brighten the eyes and do the trick
Rule 6. Apply bronzer or a shimmer anywhere you possibly can. To your face, arms, legs even the toes. You will be amazed at the positive reaction you get from people.
Rule 7. Wear accessories. Even if you went to take the trash out, rock a beaded turban. While making breakfast add a head scarf with a brooch.
Rule 8. Always use a toner, serum and moisturizer. If you're unsure which is best for you, stop by Sephora and have a beauty consultant create a routine for you. Go back a million times if you have to until you get it right. Sephora has an excellent return policy and tons of free sample you can try out.
Rule 9. Always have well groom nails and feet. They don't have to be polished, just clean and neat.
Rule 10. Wear the proper under garment. The correct size bra, underwear, girdle, and (optional ) stockings. This will give you a much smoother classy look. No matter your age, a muffin top is a muffin top. You don't want to look sloppy. Also, did you know while wearing stocking, you have a greater possiblily of being respected by others.
