The last few weeks I have had people asking me about my skin and commenting on how it is glowing. My secret? I had a visit with my friend and skin care expert Lili! I love her philosophy which is right in line with mine. A holistic approach to skincare that is advanced in its results. I had the most wonderful facial and the results have continued well after my treatment a few weeks ago.
After cleansing Lili exfoliated in conjunction with the Ultrasonic machine which I love. After extractions she used micro-current and Lightstim light therapy.
The micro-current tightens and tones the facial muscles as well as stimulating collagen and elastin while softening fine lines. The micro-current machine Lili uses in her studio is the one I have seen the best results with.
I have been a huge fan of light therapy particularly the “red light” because of the amazing results, no downtime or damage to the skin and science behind it. For plumping, evening out the skin tone and as an overall anti-aging treatment this can not be beat! Not all red light treatments are the same and I have not seen as great of results with others but I love the LightStim.
No wonder my skin was glowing after this! Check out Lili’s website here to learn about the many facial treatments she offers and also how you can customize your treatment based on your needs. I love how there is the option to target any skin type. And she is just a pleasure to be around! For me it was a bit of a drive from Orange County as she is in Santa Monica but it was well worth it.
I will be reviewing her two products that I took home, I can tell this has helped continue my results. Check out the Lili Mineni Skin care line here. I am especially loving the Vitamin A serum at night!
My friend recently introduced me to FabFitFun and I am loving it! It is a subscription based box that includes full size beauty, wellness and fashion items that is sent four times a year with each season. I signed up as a member and my first box I received was the Winter box. Some of the highlights for me include the BB Dakota Poncho, 8 OTHER REASONS Nine Lives Choker and my adorable new mug that I use every day for tea.
The retail value of my first box is $388 and it cost me $49.95! I love the variety and quality of the goodies. Not to mention how much I look forward to receiving my box and unpacking it. I loved it so much I purchased the Editors box which I am loving as well.

October is here! Fall is my absolute favorite time of year. The holidays, comfort foods and excuse to bring out my scarves. I am patiently waiting because apparently Southern California has not got the memo that summer is over. When the weather does begin to change, it is helpful to make some adjustments to our skin care routine. Below are a few helpful hits to transition your summer skin care to fall ready.
1. Treat Summer Sun Damage.
Post summer is a great time to begin exfoliating regularly again and treating yourself to a great facial treatment. If you spent a lot of time outdoors this summer try adding a antioxidant serum to help with sun damage.
2. Protect Lips
As the colder months approach keep lips hydrated and protected from the dry weather. I like to layer my Simply Jess Lip Balm on top of my lipstick to protect and keep them nice and hydrated. Or simply wear it alone.
3. Upgrade Your Moisturizer
This is the time of year to update your moisturizer, one that is richer and more protecting. Or better yet you can add a super charged serum to your existing routine. I am in love with the SkinCeuticals Hydrating B5 Gel. The combination of vitamin B5 along with hyaluronic acid makes the skin feel velvety and extremely hydrated without feeling heavy. This is a great product for any skin type and helps your existing moisturizer leave skin looking plumped up. I love it under make-up as well.
