SKIN CARE WITH NIA
Good morning! Hope you guys are having a lovely Sunday so far. Today we’re talking about skincare, because I find it so important to make sure we are doing the best to keep our skin healthy in every way possible. You guys know I love to try new products and stick to the ones that do well and incorporate them to my skin care routine. I seriously can’t stress enough how much better our make up looks when our skin looks good underneath, and I have found so much more confidence since I started taking care of mine. I’ve been using anti-aging products for a few years now and I honestly see a difference.
So lately I have found this brand new line by the makers of StriVectin, that I absolutely love using! It’s called Nia, which stands for “Not into aging” (literally my motto if you ask). It’s made by millennials for millennials which is what actually caught my attention because we are so busy with our crazy lifestyles we sometimes forget to take care of our skin. The science behind this line is that every single product has this patented molecule called NIA-114 that protects the skin from every-day stressors such as technology effects and skin sins (raise your hand if you have slept with make up on). It basically fortifies our skin, reversing these every-day damages. I’m in love.
So lets get to the products. The line is comprised of six products that work together to fill our key skincare needs and to prevent early signs of aging. I really love that I don’t have to think if I’m missing something to make my skin better.
- Wash & Glow : hydrating and cleansing foam
- Fully Charged : a serum and moisturizer at the same time
- Fake Awake: a triple-action gel for the eyes
- Sunday Detox: whipped clay peel off mask (obsessed)
- Glow on Demand: energizing illuminator that I apply before and after putting my make up on
- Tech Neck: we also have to take care of our necks! This is a line smoother that does wonders.
I honestly love all of these but my favorites have to be the Sunday Detox and the Fully Charged Serum.
The Sunday Detox is a clay mask that I wear once a week, and not to be cliché but I literally do it mostly on Sundays hah. Why? Because it de-stresses my skin from a crazy weekend where my skin is not so happy because of sleepless nights and eating not so healthy. Its application is so cool though. It actually comes out as a velvet-y foamy whipped clay that you put on your face and let it rest for about 10-15 minutes until it fully dries as a clay peel-off. This will purify and lift away all dead skin cells and ultimately make my skin visibly smoother and more radiant.
Then my second favorite is the Fully Charged Serum because you guys know my skin is so dry I need to keep it moisturized 24/7. This serum is so soft for the skin and makes it brighter and glowy, perfect for a long-day hydration.
Anyways, I really wanted to share this brand because so far it has been amazing to my skin! You guys can find it at Ulta Beauty, on their online site or in-store so make sure you check it out and let me know how it worked for you!
