Weddings are big commitments! And I don’t mean to just your partner… I’m talking about a commitment to getting ready for everything from the engagement party to the bridal shower straight through to the big day. I have affectionately dubbed this journey as “The Process To Pretty.” It not only encompasses the physical side of getting ready but also the psychological side too. Weddings are a great time in a person’s life to encourage us all to try and take better care of ourselves by going inward and exuding a healthy does of self care. Take a look at part II of of this 2 part blog series to try on to get you primed and poised to look like a million dollars for all the wedding events whether you’re the maid of honor bridesmaid or the bride herself! I promise I have you covered and truly want to help you rock this whole experience start to finish.

You want your skin to glow but you’re not sure where to start? Okay… take a breath and begin here: with mini doses of dead skin exfoliation on a daily basis for the next 4 weeks. On clean skin apply IASO’s Intensive Clear Booster to your face, neck, throat and even the back of your hands (chase with serum and moisturizer or SPF during the day after your apply the Booster). The Korean Skincare powerhouse created a results driven yet gentle skin renewing booster that provides daily exfoliation and retexturization of complexions. It works on all skin types, all ages and your groom’s complexion too can benefit from a month of using the Intensive Clear Booster. The “secret sauce” is a combo of AHA/BHA and botanical extracts which provide a gentle exfoliation daily to bring out healthier skin. The ICB is lightweight, absorbs quickly and enhances the performance of moisturizers used afterwards. It works on oily complexions to control excess sebum and also increases moisture uptake for dry skin. It’s versatile!

Caution: I strongly discourage combining a hydroxy acid formula with a Retinol formula (it’s overdosing on exfoliation. Pick one or the other)

Here’s Your Overview:
1st Week – Leaves skin soft and smooth
2nd Week – Removes dullness and starts showing skin’s natural radiance
3rd Week – Helps you get an even skin tone and reveals brighter skin
4th Week – Strengthens skin for its healthiest look and continuously attacks visible lines

If there was ever a time to focus on getting your beauty rest the month leading up to your big day… this is IT! Not all pillows are created equal. They were pretty much all the same until Dr. Cheryl Huang, a dermatologist, in the San Francisco Bay area, decided to re-invent the way we sleep and voila… out of 18+ years of research… The Pilookie was born! Dr. Huang’s patented sleeping pillow is specially-designed to optimize skin health.. and more. If you’re familiar with ergonomic office chairs? Think of this as an ergonomic pillow designed with strategic cut outs on both sides. The goal is to position your face so all the anti-aging serums and moisturizers you just applied stay on your face and don’t end up on your pillow. The second goal is for you to have supported space to sleep so you’re not smashing one side of you face directly into a pillow which over time causes sleeping fine lines and wrinkles to develop. Cheryl is a proud supporter of the American Made mission and has selected fine shops in Los Angeles, which support women supporting their familes, to craft The Pil-ookie®.
