AM/PM Beauty Routine…M.I.A.?

Okay Let’s Regroup & Overhaul…

Do one of these descriptions describe you to a “T,” if asked to sum up your AM/PM beauty routine?

  • “What routine? Does going to sleep in my makeup count? That’s a routine right?”
  • “Lip gloss, mascara, cup off coffee…GO!”
  • “Oh yeah right…that scar from last year…won’t it just magically improve on its own?”
  • “Plaque yep I have one in my office…sales award.” (uh that’s the wrong plaque, not what we meant!)

Well fear not if you fall into one or more of these personalities. I think it’s safe to say most of us are burning the candle at both ends attempting to cover one too many bases everyday. The reality with all of this is: Something’s gotta give! So typically that means the love and care we extend to ourselves slips. However 3 NEW products that recently landed on my radar need to get on yours! They have the ability to streamline your AM/PM beauty routine and amplify your confidence and appearance with very little extra effort on your end. Have I peaked your interest? Raised an eyebrow? Read on…

“Oh yeah right…that scar from last year…

won’t it just magically improve on its own?”

Well lets start with one I personally love and has helped me tremendously with my own scars. It’s Mederma PM Intensive Overnight Scar Cream. It’s the latest innovation from Mederma, the #1 doctor and pharmacist recommended brand for scars. What’s so great about Mederma PM is it’s the 1st and ONLY scar cream formulated to work at night, when skin naturally regenerates faster. It’s specially formulated with Tripeptol™, a skin nourishing complex with peptides, collagen and antioxidants that compliment skin’s nighttime activity. The cream is clinically shown to improve the appearance of scars, making them softer, smoother, smaller and less noticeable. I’ve been using it nightly since the first week in February and started to see results in about 2 weeks, so it really worked pretty quickly for me.

Find It: First aid & skin care sections at drug stores OR surf to hear more success stories like mine!

Love: The brand’s one-of-a-kind iphone app called the Mederma Progress Tracker. It allows users to take photos of their scars every few days and create a time lapse movie to see how Mederma helped improve the overall appearance of their scars over time. Best part: the app is FREE in the iphone store.

“Plaque? Yep I have one in my office…sales award.”

(Uh that’s the wrong plaque, not what we meant!)

Face it…a day and nighttime ritual that’s a must…BRUSHING!!! I’ve discovered something new, something that will really catch your attention and make you say “WOW!”

Like I did, if you try this just one time, you’re going to be really hard pressed to go back to your regular manual toothbrush! Made by Oral-B, The #1 dentist recommended toothbrush brand worldwide…it’s called the Oral-B Deep Sweep Power Brush. The cool factor lies in the innovative brush head design with a deeper sweep that gives you cleaner teeth and healthier gums. It’s hard to wrap your head around, but it removes up to 100% more plaque, even between teeth, than a regular manual toothbrush. Hallelujah!

Find It: Department, retail & specialty stores, approx $64.99 or you can order one on line and get more info at

“Lip gloss, mascara, cup off coffee…GO!”

If this is your beauty mantra…fabulous! I say rock out with your fierce self. But…can I suggest tweaking it ever so slightly and adding one more small step into this equation? Once you apply L’Oreal Paris’s Youth Code Pore Vanisher (that would fall before the lip gloss, mascara and coffee) you will have your “a-ha” moment as did I. It’s a breakthrough approach to fighting pores because it works both instantly and over time targeting pores in 3 dimensions: number, size and depth! Gett’em L’Oreal…pores there’s a new sheriff in town! Airlite powders within the formula give the skin a soft-focus finish on the surface of the pore. LHA micro-exfoliates help to smooth skin’s surface, while this really innovative perlite ingredient absorbs excess oil instantly for an all-day shine free finish around the pore. They formulated it with the highest concentration of perline-p to help strengthen, tighten and shrink the appearance of pore size overtime. Where can I snail mail my thank you note?

Find It: Mass retailers and ($24.99)
