I am loving that it’s autumn! Even though it’s still pretty warm in Kansas City, there is a nip in the air at night and the leaves are falling.
According to TheKnot.com, Fall is the most popular season to wed. So whether it’s your big day or your best friend’s, you want to have your brightest, most youthful wedding-worthy skin. After all, the photos will last a lifetime!
Below is a regimen to get skin ready for a big event. This will also work for a holiday event like a Christmas party, New Years, even Valentine’s Day. Any occasion that you want to look your best for will benefit from these products:
2 Months ahead: BioREWIND AM & PM: BioREWIND ($125 USD each) — AM offers the first full-spectrum antioxidant blend, while BioREWIND PM provides a proprietary retinoid linked with lactic acid to form a unique molecule that provides maximum effectiveness with minimal irritation. The two serums work hand in hand to achieve a more youthful complexion by eliminating fine lines and wrinkles, dullness, uneven skin tone and loss of firmness.
What I think: I have been using these for a few weeks and I like how my skin is firmer and my skin tone seems brighter. I always use a serum under my moisturizer, so this is an easy step to remember. And the benefits they give are amazing!
