Beauty through time -Vichy Lift Active Collagen and Hyalu Mask

As we are well aware aging is a natural process of life. The new innovations and technology in products blows my mind. Vichy has come out with some hot products in 2019 and I’m so excited to share them with you.

Say hello to the Vichy Lift Activ Collagen and Hyalu Mask. https://www.vichy.ca/en/liftactiv-collagen-specialist. Talk about a powerful duo and powerhouse in products!!

Growing old is an accomplishment – a precious gift that should be celebrated and appreciated. Unfortunately it is also a gateway to sagging skin, wrinkles, fine lines and hyperpigmentation – the undesirable side effects that creep up while you’re living life to the fullest.

Genetics, pollution, stress, UV damage, improper care and hormones are key factors in how well skin ages but we all have one thing in common – gradual collagen loss.

 

DID YOU KNOW! We start losing Collagen & Hyaluronic Acid by the age of 21? At 40, we lose on average 1% each year! (REALITY)

So what is Collagen and why is it sooo important?  https://www.vichy.ca/en/anti-aging-collagen/et-collagen-all-you-need.html

The Importance of Collagen

Collagen is the most abundant form of protein in the body, providing strength and structure for connective tissue. It is essential to the healthy functioning of skin, blood vessels, muscle, tendons, bone, ligaments and the digestive system.

Prevention is the most effective way to outsmart Mother Nature but certain products can also fortify and protect your skin.

Vichy’s new LiftActive Skincare is infused with 2 types of peptides capable of targeting collagen synthesis. It also includes 15 replenishing minerals and powerful anti-aging ingredients.

About the Product:

The Benefits of Vichy

LiftActive Collagen Specialist is a fragrant lightweight cream that smooths, moisturizes and tightens slack skin to improve sagging, texture and discoloration. The silky finish works well under makeup and creates a non-greasy barrier that shields against external aggressors. When used frequently, blemishes begin to fade and your profile may appear toned and defined. I don’t have wrinkles or fine lines but my complexion definitely looks even and hydrated.

The LiftActiv Hyalu Mask combines the regenerating power of Hyaluronic Acid and Agave Extract for instant replenishment, suppleness and radiance. If your complexion is dry, dull or fatigued, apply a thin layer of gel on clean skin, wait 5-10 minutes and remove the excess with a cotton pad (no need to rinse). Occasionally I layer the mask over the cream before bed and wash my face again in the morning. The rejuvenating layers lock-in moisture so I awake with a fresh dewy glow.

If I were to add one more product to my routine it would be the Vichy Mineral 89 https://www.vichy.ca/en/mineral89-with-hyaluronic-acid 

I have taken over 20 flights over the last 3 months and this routine has been a life saver when it comes to happy and hydrated skin. The price point and value is remarkable. Like any routine the journey starts from the inside out! and you have to be persistent with your routine. It takes a few weeks for the body to adjust and I’m sure you will be messaging me to say how in love you are -))

Cant wait to hear about your thoughts

What I do for REAL!

Happy Weekend and can we get just real for a moment! I woke up this morning with full intention of getting outside, but I was in total disbelief! Snow at the end of April -(.  I imagined myself going for a run and hitting a patio in the city but BOOM! Mother Nature is playing tricks this year. A cold 2dg brrrr

Ive had a busy week with work, mom life and getting back into my fitness game. One of the TOP questions of the week is “What I Do On A Daily”. Being a mother of four adorable kiddos is my full time #job but they are getting older and their is more time to get a solid routine into play. I would like to call my job a full time “Life ER (Living Life and sharing moments with you!) – I heard this term at a blogging conference and could relate 100%.

THOUGHTS ON LIFESTYLE BLOGGING

I’ve been giving a lot of thought recently to lifestyle blogging, and the still-young and every-growing industry it inhabits.

Unlike fashion or beauty blogging (Which are my loves TOO, which have one particular focus, lifestyle blogging is a unique blend of interests pieced together by the author of each individual lifestyle blog.

For a few years now, I feel like I have been naturally aligning with the ‘lifestyle blogger’ label, rather than a ‘fashion’ one – despite fashion being where I first started.

With this shift to lifestyle, rather than a specific topic, I feel I am able to better share a ‘blend’ of topics which interest me at this stage in my life.

I am going deeper into what lifestyle blogging means for me and how you can hone in on the ‘blend’ of your own lifestyle blog. I hope today’s post will still resonate with you. We are all piecing together our lifestyles, so whether you choose to share yours in a blog format or not, I believe it is worthwhile giving thought to what makes you tick. I follow so many amazing bloggers and each one is so unique. Love watching their journey and reading their posts. I believe that we are all just in transition and the future is exciting.

Thoughts :

NOBODY NEED DEFINE YOUR LIFESTYLE BLOG, OTHER THAN YOU. (You got this)

YOUR SITE is UNIQUE

PERSONAL CURATION OF INTERESTS AND ACTIVITIES. THIS CURATION IS WHAT I LIKE TO THINK OF AS YOUR ‘ Cocktail BLEND’.

I am still in the process of finding my flow and im inspired by my readers. Most of my viewers still go directly to Instagram but I believe their is so much more to say on the blog. I lead an interesting and diverse life. Authenticity means everything when it comes to my brand. At the end of each post or story I want the viewer to leave feeling inspired and motivated to be the best they can be. This journey started by complete coincidence and I cant wait to tell you about that someday soon.

 

THANK YOU!!!

I am so blessed to have you here and look forward to sharing my life with you

This gorgeous pop up is making its was through four provinces in Canada at the moment. I was lucky to go to Bayshore Shopping Centre in my hometown here in Ottawa to check it out! https://www.bayshoreshoppingcentre.com 

It is an experience for the entire family young and old all the same. The theme is 1970 California Retro Motel, my kinda set up and I got straight into the fun atmosphere. The pop up is there until the 28th April 2019 and moving on to Vancouver.  There are five different themed hotel rooms set up and I got some really cute pictures! You may even spot a cotton candy sky or a pink cow (Just saying)

Don’t forget to jump into the pool of balls for a fun Boomerang -))

  • We recently started a family recipe book that highlights our absolute favourite dishes. The kids think this is the best thing ever and are totally into documenting everything. We basically started a tradition and this makes me sooo happy ❤️ Life’s small gains are huge #wins @goop #ingoophealth
  • Flowers from my baby girl is the sweetest way to wake up on a Saturday morning. I think I need to do an entire segment on mother’s and daughters. Love each of my kids alike with all my heart but there is something unique when a daughter is growing and learning from her mama ⭐️🌸
  • Walking into the weekend with an enthusiastic stride 🌸🌸🌸🌸 I’m on the hunt for Cherry Blossoms to go with my outfit. If you see any in your city, let me know. I was talking to my husband the other night and I think Japan is on the list for next year. I’m dreaming of dancing in Cherry Blossom Gardens 🌸 @revolve @revolvebeauty 📸 @irina_shakhova_photographe

  • Following my appointment and GLO peel last week at @jagcosmetics, my skin was feeling amazing - smooth and glowing! (What a treat!)⭐️We went home with a number of @vivierskin products, including the full GrenzCine line, which includes the GrenzCine Serum, Eye, Neck, and Body. The line is great for anti-aging, skin rejuvenation ,but also a perfect line for post-treatment that’s easy to do at home. It helps boost the hydration of the skin and keeps it looking luminous. My skin has definitely managed to maintain it's glow and I'm loving the anti-aging effects I'm seeing already. Excited to see my continued results with these products! Promise to keep you posted! #vivierskin #thebeautyofresults #ad
  • Now where are my beach side cocktails 🐬🐟🐠 - Reality is I’m just daydreaming and currently making  a cuppa tea #reallife . The truth is this shoot happened and I had the time of my life. Those kinda memories are worth reposting over and over 🐚
  • You don’t ever need permission to be the best version of yourself. I have trained myself not to hold back on what is intended for me. Inch by inch there is a little magic waiting. The road may not be easy or smooth but keep going ⭐️⭐️ @revolve @revolvebeauty #revolvearoundtheworld 📸 @irina_shakhova_photographe
