Holidays are about spending time with the ones you love. So don’t stress and just enjoy it!
Chamele is finishing off her 30 Days of Luxetips! Enjoy!
Ever since reading the “Perricone Prescription” six years ago, I have been aware of the role inflammation plays in aging. While I have had some trouble cutting back on those sugars, I have been experimenting with products that help prevent and erase the damage I have done. Thanks to Dr. P., I became familiar with Ester C, which is twice as beneficial as Vitamin C. Dr. Perricone’s meticulous study of vitamin C and its properties fighting inflammation had me hooked. I then began to familiarize myself with the Perricone line.
This year, Dr. Perricone has introduced a new line of products called “Super by Dr. Nicholas Perricone” This line contains super foods including apples, acai, ginger and yogurt. I am eager to try all of the products, but particularly the four listed below.
This time of year, the weather can strip our skin of oils and leave the skin looking lack luster. Trust me. I know. I love facials and I love ginger so I am especially excited about the Super 3-Minute Facial with Ginger. It is a fast facial that leaves the skin hydrated. $50.00 for a 2 oz serving.
Next up, is the Super Acne Treatment with Green Apple. Even though I am aging, I am still experiencing periodic breakouts. The Super Acne Treatment exfoliates and fights acne with salicylic acid. I am all too familiar with salicylic acid. It is a life saver. The Super Acne Treatment also contains quercetin, a natural antioxidant. I had recently been trying out some new products with quercetin and noticed a huge improvement in my laugh lines. I am uber-excited about the Super Acne Treatment because it will simultaneously fight acne and aging. Multifunctional products are where it’s at! $50.00 for a 1 oz serving of the Super Acne Treatment with Green Apple.
I also want to try the Super Hand & Cuticle Cream with Yogurt. The cream claims to heal and soften hands and cuticle by stimulating collagen production with yogurt probiotics. If you are not familiar with probiotics you should be! It is no secret that some of the worlds most beautiful queens, for instance Cleopatra, bathed themselves in milk. Why? The bacteria of course. This is probably the best time of year to indulge your hands, and I trust that Dr. Perricone has engaged in a thorough study making his products most effective. $30.00 for a 2 oz serving.
Finally, I plan on indulging my soup coolers with the Super Lush Lips with Coconut Oil . Yummy! The name alone makes me want to wear it. But the delectable coconut oil it contains is a huge source of vitamin E. Vitamin E plays an important role in healing, and the Super Lush Lips purports to “nourish, quench, and shine lips.” $20.00 for a 0.5 oz serving.
All products are free of parabens, phthalates, sulfates, synthetic fragrances, synthetic dyes and petrochemicals. I know the prices seem steep but trust me, a little goes a long way with the Perricone products. It doesn’t take much to save your skin; and besides, you are an investment! All products are available exclusively at Sephora.
