Paula's Choice DEFENSE Collection

Paula's-Choice-DEFENSE-Skin-Care-Collection
I’ve been thinking a lot about skin care lately as my skin seems to be on a good plateau right now, which is great. My regimen the past year is working and keeping it all in balance. My hormonal acne around my jawline has stopped, and my skin doesn’t seem overly dry. It’s funny because I love any kind of special treatments and skin care gadgets, so I’ve been thinking I might want to incorporate a new one into my routine. Then, I look in the mirror and think, “why mess with what I have going on?”

I recently spoke with the owner of Doll Face Skincare Studios, Lila Castellanos, about what we should all be doing when it comes to skin care and she said, “The two most important parts of any daily skincare routine are skin cleansing and exfoliation, both of which are vital to proper skin care. The first step is removing makeup with remover or an oil-based cream. Follow with a cleanser that is well-suited for your skin type. 

Exfoliation involves rubbing the skin with an exfoliator or scrub in order to get rid of dry and dead skin cells from the surface of the skin. It’s considered one of the most important aspects of any skincare routine because it helps prevent many skin problems while increasing blood circulation, equating to healthy and glowing skin.” Woo-hoo! I’m on the right track then. I usually use a chemical exfoliator in the shower a few times a week and of course I fully wash my face at the end of each day, so good to know that I’m doing the right things.

The Kami Pad

The-Kami-Pad-Anti-Wrinkle-Forehead-Pad-and-Neck-Pad
To me, these anti-aging pads seem like hooey, hocus pocus, a scam, but I am here to tell you that they aren’t. I’ve tried a few brands that make these medical-grade silicone pads for the chest and now and this is the latest.

Meet THE KAMI PAD. They were kind enough to send me their Anti-Wrinkle Forehead Pad and Wrinkle Recovery Neck Pad to try out and review. $24 each @ thekamipad.com.

When it comes to my forehead, I get Botox about twice a year and love it. The timing on these was perfect because I’m due for another treatment but my wallet isn’t letting me get it.  

Let’s break down the details of these:

  • Reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Reduces the appearance of scars
  • Prevent new wrinkles from forming
  • Boosts collagen production
  • Hydrates and moisturizes
  • Eco-friendly
  • Hypoallergenic
  • Great alternative to injections and invasive wrinkle treatments
