Let's take a break and talk about beauty...over 50.
So I am not only Cindy, the Happiness Coach, or Cindy, the Success Coach, or even, Cindy, the author.
I am Cindy the MUA (makeup artist) as well. :D I have loved making people feel beautiful my entire adult life. I did my first professional make up gig in Los Angeles when I was 18 and I have continued with my passion.
It is something that has become even more important to me as I age because aging is rough for some of us. I am constantly being asked what products I use or what technique I use for my eyes or my lips. We are all looking for answers to our challenges. And I am always willing to share.
Aging to me is absolutely a mindset. And I am a believer that the expression lines and the character and wisdom we see in our faces as we age are simply stunning. I like myself better now. I will never have the 18 year old body again but as I look at my life and the whole person I am, I can celebrate the journey. Not that it has been easy and without struggles and grief, but I am happy and confident and balanced unlike my younger and at times insecure self.
Every once in a while, I will be taking a break from coaching to share little videos and golden nuggets on my tips and tricks on how I take on the challenge of aging beautifully.
First of all, you must have beautiful skin that is radiant and moisturized. The question that I am asked often is what do I use under my makeup to make it look so radiant. I mean, at my age (which will never be divulged) I have tried almost every product under the sun or at least it feels like i have. I've spent 1000s of dollars and finally I came across this product by accident. It has literally changed the way my make up looks and it is a fraction of the cost of some of the products I have used in the past.
The moisturizer is Embryolisse Lait-Creme Concentre . Make sure you get the concentre. It is a bit more substantial and is like magic on your skin and under your make up. https://amzn.to/3QYkN6d You can find it here.
I do receive a little kick back as I share these products as an affiliate but make no mistake, these products are tried and true by me personally.
Now, heres a little side note for the boys. My husband is so funny. He uses my products but doesn't tell me. I asked him the other day if he was because my tube seemed like it was shrinking. He loves it and he's cute so there you go. It is good for the boys as well.
If you have skin, you need to seriously take care of it. Right now. Drink lots of water. Make sure you are taking your vitamins and getting rest. Never go to bed without cleaning your skin. Oh my goodness. Clean all of the day off of your face and your soul so you can start fresh the following day. And please please change your pillow case at least weekly. I think the reason is self explanatory.
So I know you are going to ask me for my skin care routine so here it is.
I cleanse my skin every night with the Biossance Cleansing Oil https://amzn.to/3j00bxS. I smooth two or three pumps over my entire face and cleanse it off with a warm cloth. Then I saturate the cloth with more warm water and soak my skin. I follow with Dr Nassif Detox pads https://amzn.to/3kEDShP
I have used these pads forever. I just can't imagine not purifying my skin before my serum and my moisturizer without them. They also have body detox pads too.
Next I follow with the Double Serum by Clarions. https://amzn.to/3RgkHqV
I was in New York several years ago and I was shopping at the wonderful Macy's there. This cutest sales lady caught my attention and asked me if I would give her my opinion of this product. She was really good at what she did. I mean did she know how many products I have in my MANY drawers at home that promised me smoother younger looking skin. But she was just so adorable and I couldn't say no so I gave it a try and I was hooked. I have been using this product for many years now and I was able to throw away many of those products in those drawers.
Lastly, my nighttime moisturizer is a game changer. I have to go to bed with clean fresh moist skin. It is what makes a difference, like I said earlier. Now, I have tried so many nighttime moisturizers and i keep going back to this. I know its pricey and I wish it weren't but you asked and so here it is. Lancome Absolue Soft Creme. I have very sensitive skin and I know this has a rose extract scent but it works so well on my skin. https://amzn.to/3D6nPQg I do not use this under my makeup during the day. I use the Embryolisse as I shared above because it is magical but this is just as magical at night.
I hope this helps you all. I will continue to share other products and discoveries as I come across them.
Stay tuned as I share some little videos of either my own make up routine or me using other faces to show you some awesome tricks every once in a while. Please let me know if this is helpful.
