1. Only use the most gentle organic plant based products. Avoid active serums, any type of exfoliation, and use a non-foaming cleanser.

2. Nourish your skin with essential fatty acids, peptides, and antioxidant protection that also replenishes the skin. The High tech copper peptides and the Caviar luxury lifting serum are effective, deeply nourishing plant based organic treatments.

3. Cushion and protect your barrier with the most hydrating moisturizer. The Peptide collagen repair cream will help with the driest of skin without feeling heavy. It is rich in milk protein & collagen and elastin amino acids.

4. Seal in all the nourishment with a protective finishing serum. The Glow boosting hydrating serum supports the most fragile, dehydrated skin. While well known for firming, lifting, and leaving a glow, it also significantly improves moisture levels while preventing water loss.

Did you know you could have a compromised barrier even if you aren’t showing signs yet? If you use strong actives continually, receive peels, laser, or microdermabrasion, or even use a foaming cleanser, over time your skin can become sensitized.

It’s always a great idea to give your skin a well deserved break from external aggressors.

Choose a holistic skincare brand that is toxic free, like I’m Fabulous Cosmetics; a brand with products that are free of artificial perfumes, colors, and mineral oils. Their unique scents, hues, and textures originate solely from their natural components, keeping them as close as possible to their raw, fresh and powerful ingredients. They are cruelty-free and have never been tested on animals. All the products are manufactured in small batches in the United states, to allow for the freshest products to their customers.

Yes, Microneedling can be used under your eyes to promote collagen production, which can lead to firmer, more youthful-looking skin. This procedure is typically used to treat dark circles skin under your eyes.

Microneedling under your eyes will cost $100 to $500 per session, and you’ll need to pay for multiple sessions. Or you can do it at home with your own microneedling pen.

Because, professional microneedling is considered much more effective than at-home microneedling devices. I suggest you invest in a professional microneedling machine like the I’m Fabulous Cosmetics Glow Derma Pen.

Microneedling uses very small needles to create a group of tiny punctures in your skin. These are called “microwounds,” and they don’t cause lasting damage to your skin. These microwounds close quickly, but before they do, your body triggers a repair response that’s directed to the area. This repair response includes signaling your skin to create brand-new cells and capillaries.

You can do microneedling under the eye using the NANO needles which are very safe and very short needles or the regular needles #42 which are longer needles, but the length of the needles can be easily adjusted.

Through the natural wound-healing process of the skin, these micro-injuries are repaired as new, healthier skin cells grow, and new collagen and elastin are produced. This helps to plump and firm skin, diminish signs of aging, and minimize the overall appearance of dark circles. To treat the delicate and sensitive skin around the under eyes.

Does microneedling get rid of dark circles, under-eye wrinkles, or eye bags?

Microneedling can be an effective treatment option for fine lines, under-eye bags, puffiness, hyperpigmentation, acne scars, and even stretch marks. The versatility of a microneedling treatment is what makes it beneficial for patients with varying skin tones and skin types. By adjusting the depth of penetration of the tiny needles on the dermapen, the delicate under eye skin can be treated with the microneedle pen to achieve a rejuvenated appearance.

Skincare with Microneedling

You can maximize the benefits of your favorite skincare products by applying them after a microneedling treatment. Stay away from ingredients like retinol and Retin-A, as these ingredients will be too harsh for skin after treatment. However, after a microneedling treatment hydrating ingredients like a plant-based hyaluronic acid are able to better penetrate the skin through newly created micro-channels, leaving your skin moisturized and glowing. Hyaluronic acid is a natural component of skin structure and helps to strengthen the natural protective barrier of skin as well as promote moisture retention. Hyaluronic acid keeps skin healthy and looking and feeling hydrated, youthful, and beautiful. 

Topical serums, such as I’m Fabulous Cosmetics ’s Vitamin C serum and volumizing serum containing hyaluronic acid (Volumizing serum and skin filler ) can be a very powerful way to boost the effects of your microneedling treatment.

I’m Fabulous Cosmetics products are organic and plant-based so also a great way to treat your skin naturally without harsh toxic preservatives. The serums works to provide the ultimate in hydration to the skin at every level, diminishing the appearance of dark circles, fine lines, and wrinkles by enhancing the skin’s moisture content. This revitalizing hyaluronic acid serum leaves the skin looking and feeling softer, smoother, and radiantly hydrated.

Children and families in eastern Ukraine have long been suffering the effects of armed conflict, and political and social unrest.

In December, UNICEF reported that limited access to essential services was threatening the mental and physical well-being of Ukraine’s children; that health services across the country were buckling under the strain of the COVID-19 pandemic and child poverty was increasing. Hundreds of thousands of people needed help accessing safe water to drink. With so many schools damaged or lacking resources, additional support was needed to help children continue with their education.

UNICEF is on the ground in eastern Ukraine ramping up assistance for children. If you can please try to help!

Nano needling is is less aggressive, needle-free alternative to microneedling. I’s a transdermal delivery system that targets lack of tone, uneven texture, pigmentation, scarring, and loss of elasticity.

Nano Needling is a wonderful skin rejuvenation technique to treat many of the same skin conditions.  Nano needling will have a positive effect in reducing the appearance of fine lines, improving skin tone and texture, shrinking pore size, reducing pigmentation, or helping to clear acne.

Nano needling creates microscopic channels 0.12 – 0.14 mm in depth in the outermost layers of the skin to allow better absorption of active ingredients. This allows your favorite skin products to achieve better patient results with no discomfort or downtime. Nano needling can be used by itself, or as an addition to facials, peels, and microdermabrasion. Nano needling is recommended to be done in a series of weekly and bi-weekly treatments for the best possible results.

Effects on the Skin

  • Improves uneven skin tone and texture
  • Reduces the appearance of fine lines
  • Decrease pigmentation and sunspots
  • Improves skins plumpness
  • Balance and restore a healthy and refreshed glow in the skin
  • Pore size-reduction

  • Mono-crystalline silicon needle pins make it non-allergic to human tissue
  • Cost-effective compared to other exfoliating procedures
  • Can be performed on all skin types, including ethnic skin
  • It can be used on all areas of the face, neck, and body and even fragile skin around eyes and lips.

Nano Needling

  • Esthetician approved
  • Cosmetic facial
  • Treats in upper layers of the epidermis
  • Transdermal delivery system
  • Nanochannels for increase effectiveness of serums
  • No numbing, downtime, or pain
  • Microscopic silicon needles 1/3 thickness of hair
  • Needle depth 0.15mm
  • Treatment frequently, weekly, biweekly & monthly.

Nano Needling uses a mono-crystalline silicone cartridge with nano-technology to boost transdermal delivery and efficacy of skincare products estheticians use every day.

You can purchase the Nano needle cartridges in pack of 10 or in the kit with the Glow derma pen. The glow derma pen is a professional microneedling pen for professional or home use. The needles quality are very high standard and best quality. I’m Fabulous cosmetics also offer a at home certification course and many other microneedling supplies and accessories.

Is your skin lacking radiance or an inability to reflect light well.

Dull skin is often caused by dryness and one of the most popular reasons for dry skin, is not exfoliating enough or not exfoliating properly.

The air and atmosphere that you are in every day not only has an effect on your lungs as you breathe it in, but it also attaches itself to your skin. Polluted air contains thousands of small particles such as dirt, which contribute to your skin having a dull and an uneven texture. These particles also diffuse light, making your skin appear more dismal and cause you to have more wrinkles!

So make sure you wash your skin every single night. The dirt your skin collects throughout the day will damage your skin at night if it’s not removed.

Stress gets expressed in many forms in our body and getting problem skin is one of them. This is due to the fact that when you’re stressed, your fight-or-flight response kicks in and blood flows to your vital organs, where the skin isn’t one of them. This leads to the appearance of a more dull and tired complexion.

If you have stress you should try to reduce your stress levels and get more sleep but for the instances when you just want to make your skin seem a little more awake, try giving yourself a quick facial massage. It will stimulate blood flow, giving you a more glowing, plump and awake complexion.

Dr. Marcell, MD., agree that using a gentle TCA cleanser like the I’m Fabulous Cosmetics TCA cleanser, is a noninvasive approach that uses trichloroacetic acid and plants to exfoliate dead cells from the skin, without downtimes and that it is indeed a very conservative approach to making your skin healthy and glowing.

Dull skin may appear dry, patchy, ashy, or lackluster. Additionally, dullness is often accompanied by an uneven skin texture TCA (trichloracetic acid) is an analog of acetic acid (like vinegar) and is an active ingredient in many popular chemical peels. When applied to the skin, TCA peels exfoliate the top layer of skin over the course of several days, exposing a smoother and more attractive new layer of skin underneath.

What are the benefits of using TCA?

What is TCA?

TCA (Trichloroacetic Acid) is a modified synthetic chemical similar to vinegar.

For years, TCA peels have only been administered by estheticians and physicians during expensive treatments.

The plant based organic I’m Fabulous Cosmetics TCA Cleanser is great for acne, scars, wrinkles, fine lines, dull skin and sun damage.

This incredible, highly effective face wash will act as an acne treatment, pore minimizer & oil reducer by removing the top layer of skin, helps reduce fine lines, wrinkles and scarring thus leaving you with fresh, healthy, radiant skin!

Microneedling treatment can be safely done about once a month or every 4 to 6 weeks. This is the frequency that works best for the majority of patients of all skin types, but some patients find that microneedling treatment more or less frequently than this range works best for their skin and their aesthetic goals. 

Treatments to Maintain Results

After your first round of treatment is completed, and you have obtained your desired results, all subsequent appointments will be used to maintain these results. 

The results of this treatment build gradually, you will be able to have more time between your regular maintenance appointments than your first round. Many patients opt to have regular treatments every 6 to 8 weeks for this purpose.

What is Microneedling?

Microneedling creates tiny little holes in the face to stimulate collagen growth. Collagen not only gives the skin its youthful appearance, but also improves elasticity. As we age and with sun damage, collagen is depleted from the skin. This causes our skin to lose its youthful look and feel. With microneedling, we can help increase the production of collagen by making tiny holes in your skin which causes your body to react by creating new collagen – so with this treatment you “trick” the body into thinking there is damage. Electric needling pens are much better than skin rollers and the results are more drastic with the electric pen.

Benefits Of Microneedling:

What Are Results Like?

The results of this procedure are reliable and predictable. Regardless of your age or skin condition, you can be certain that you will experience the desired results. 

How does one maintain youthful glow?

You can maintain a youthful glow by getting regular facials. Microneedling has the added benefit of creating thousands of microscopic channels in your skin, this allows us to get deep into collagen layers to stimulate collagen growth.

What is the length of procedure?

Duration depends on the treatment desired. For example, microneedling may take 15 minutes for face and 30-45 minutes for body. Often times we combine microneedling with other skin rejuvenation procedures such as LED light therapy or radio frequency to give you an optimum youthful glow.

Microneedling for collagen induction (CIT) has so many amazing benefits. Yes, Controlled skin injuries produced by microneedling send the skin into a repair mode that triggers the body to produce new collagen as well as elastin, providing our skin with plumpness and resilience. Importantly, it isn’t just the microneedling that brings all this goodness.

What is collagen induction?

Collagen induction therapy is a simple cosmetic procedure in which a group of sterile microneedles puncture the skin of the face. The goal is to promote the growth of collagen and new skin tissue.

After making thousands of little micro-injuries on your skin – now it’s time for pampering and a careful protocol for internal and external supplementation and healing. Because how we treat our skin in the days following a treatment will dramatically affect the level of rejuvenation we experience.

5mm + for collagen (your monthly needling session) and you’re wondering what you should be taking, what you should be applying to your skin, and what other devices you can use during the next month.

Next step: Red light therapy! LED is the perfect pairing with microneedling. Red LED can reduce erythema (redness) and inflammation. Red LED (633nm) enhances keratinocyte proliferation and near infra-red LED (700-830) amplifies collagen and elastin formation (for stronger, bouncier skin). 

After LED you can add hyaluronic acid. Then, take it easy – no makeup, perfumes or other products close to your face, please! You’ll also want to avoid the gym, sauna and direct sunlight exposure for at least the first 24 hours after microneedling treatment.

Days 1-5 (feeling a little pink and dehydrated?)

You’ll wake up the next day and rinse your skin (it’s ok to wash if you feel you need to, just use a very gentle facial cleanser) and then apply your Hyaluronic Serum or favorite I’m Fabulous Cosmetics serum.

Next, I like to apply vitamin C and then a facial serum to soothe and nourish the skin.  At this point, most people benefit from a moisturizer with ingredients like collagen, peptides, and hemp. You’ll then finish with a healthy amount of sunscreen -and you’re done for the morning. This will be repeated each morning the first 5 days.  

I’m Fabulous Cosmetics signature Hyaluronic Acid (HA) formulation, with a superior delivery system that contains three molecular sizes of HA, the smallest of which can penetrate to the deeper layers of the skin and Helichrysum italicum (Immortelle Flower). Hyaluronic acid has the ability to hold up 1000 times its weight in water making it one of the most effective moisturizers discovered by medical science.

IMMORTELLE FLOWERS BENEFITS TO THE SKIN:

  • Smoothing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
  • Immortelle essential oil evens out skin tone.
  • It restores sun-damaged skin and helps block UV rays.
  • Diminishing under-eye bags.
  • It also clears up scars and spots

To summarize skincare in the morning in the first five days:

  1. Cleanse
  2. Vitamin C Serum
  3. Your favorite serum
  4. Moisturizer like the Collagen Repair Cream
  5. SPF

Skincare in the evening during the first 5 days my protocol (you can adjust to your preferences) goes like this:

  1. Cleanse
  2. Vitamin C Serum 
  3. Hyaluronic Acid Serum
  4. Serum of your choice
  5. Moisturizer like the Retinol Cream

The first 5 days are about feeding the skin and replenishing it, helping it to heal. You very well may have flaking and dryness along the way – that’s perfectly normal. Toward day five you may use a gentle enzyme peel to clear flakes. Gentle is the keyword here. For best results is it best to not mix I’m Fabulous Cosmetics organic plants-based products with other non-organic brands.

Dry skin isn’t usually serious. It’s probably caused by factors like hot or cold weather, low moisture in the air, and soaking in hot water. You can do a lot on your own to improve your skin, including using moisturizers and avoiding harsh, drying soaps. Sometimes deficiency of Vitamin D is quite common. Dry skin is a common skin condition, which can also be a result of Vitamin D deficiency. Keep reading to know the link between vitamin D deficiency and skin health.

What should I drink to help my dry skin?

What drink helps dry skin?8 Best Vitamins and Supplements for Dry Skin

  1. Vitamin D. Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin that’s critical for many aspects of health, including the health of your skin.
  2. Collagen. Collagen is the most abundant protein in your body and accounts for 75% of your skin’s dry weight.
  3. Vitamin C.
  4. Fish oil.
  5. Plenty of water!

Having dry, rough, or cracked skin on the feet is common. The feet have fewer oil glands than other areas of the body, and they experience daily wear and tear. People can relieve dry skin on the feet using some simple home remedies. Over time, the skin loses its ability to retain water, becoming thinner and less plump. Older people may be more likely to experience dry skin as a result of the natural aging process.

How can I improve the dry skin on my feet?

Exfoliate

Exfoliation involves removing dead surface-layer skin using either a physical or chemical exfoliator.

Physical exfoliators include:

  • foot scrubs
  • body brushes
  • electronic callus removers

Vaseline is a very good moisturizer for dry skin. Applying a layer of Vaseline to dry skin helps lock in moisture. Vaseline is great for treating all the usual dry areas, such as the: heels. So you can apply plenty of Vaseline at bedtime and wear socks over it.

Vaseline is a safe and cost-effective way to lock moisture into skin. Even if you have skin conditions such as rosacea or psoriasis, it’s likely safe for you to use Vaseline. Vaseline easily removes makeup, protects sensitive skin, and can even be used to help small cuts and bruises heal.

If you are allergic to Vaseline and want to stay away from toxic preservative, I suggest to use.

Soaking the feet in warm water helps soothe and loosen dry skin while improving blood circulation to the feet, which can help prevent dry skin in the future.

What can I use instead of Vaseline?

Research suggests that it has anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and antiviral properties. Coconut oil is also very moisturizing for dry skin. A person can apply coconut oil directly to the skin.

Coconut oil is excellent for cracked heels. It contains a high concentration of vitamin E and natural proteins that help repair damaged skin cells. ‘It also contains natural lauric acid, which has both antibacterial and anti-fungal properties.

Try coconut oil for skin before your next pedicure: Pour coconut oil into an empty jar or small bowl until it’s halfway full, then add 2 tablespoons of honey and mix in 1 tablespoon of sugar until the sugar is completely immersed in the oil. “Take a couple of spoonfuls of the scrub and work it into your legs and feet to fully exfoliate, sloughing away dead skin and smoothing out calluses, cracked heels, and rough spots.

Are you in the habit of using electronics in bed? Despite the evidence showing that blue light is bad for sleep, many of us have trouble giving up our bedtime entertainment. While it takes some adjustment, swapping late-night scrolling for a soothing bedtime read is worth the effort. When you sleep better, you do more than feel better — you also look better! Getting enough sleep leads to a brighter complexion, clearer skin, and fewer wrinkles, among other beauty benefits.

Before you completely banish your phone from the bedroom in the name of beauty, let I’m Fabulous Cosmetics show you the ways your smartphone could improve your sleep. From storytime apps to sleep trackers, these four apps are great for your beauty rest.

4 Smartphone Apps to Help You Sleep

Headspace

When racing thoughts keep you up, you need something relaxing to focus on. That’s where Headspace’s app comes in. With guided bedtime meditations, soothing storytelling, and sleep music, Headspace can keep your mind off of your to-do list while drifting off to sleep.

Relax Melodies

The Relax Melodies app is similar to Headspace, with meditations, stories, and sounds designed for sleep. However, Relax Melodies has even more features, including the ability to mix your own soundscapes and timers so you can play soothing sounds for a few minutes or keep them going all night for white noise.

SnoreLab

Do you spend a solid eight hours in bed but still wake up feeling groggy? It could be a sign of a sleep disorder called sleep apnea, and snoring is one of the biggest signs. The SnoreLab app records and analyzes your nightly snoring to calculate your Snore Score. While your Snore Score alone can’t tell you if you have sleep apnea, it helps you identify patterns and listen for telltale signs of sleep apnea like gasping or choking sounds.

If you snore only during certain times of the year, it may be helpful to reduce your exposure to pollen, especially while you sleep. Shower before bed, change sheets frequently, add an air purifier, and give your soft furnishings a deep cleaning. Just search Angi for upholstery cleaning specials and you’ll be one step closer to a good night’s rest.

Sleep Time

Sleep apnea isn’t the only disorder that can disrupt your sleep. Sleep movement disorders like restless legs syndrome are also common culprits behind poor sleep. The Sleep Time app lets you track your nighttime movements by placing your phone in bed to generate a nightly sleep analysis. The app also uses movement to determine the lightest phases of your sleep and wake you up at a time you’re most likely to feel well-rested.

These apps are great tools for a better night’s rest, but before downloading anything, make sure your phone can handle running multiple sleep apps through the night. If yours lacks performance for the apps you want, consider an upgrade so you’re not worried about your phone crashing halfway through a bedtime meditation. A set of Bluetooth speakers will allow you to play restful music as you drift off to sleep.

Still Can’t Sleep? Try This

While a lot of sleep problems come down to bad habits, sometimes the solution is far more simple: a new bed. Most people don’t give much thought to their mattress, but mattresses do wear out. If yours isn’t as comfy as it used to be, it’s probably time to replace it. Consider how your body has changed since your last mattress purchase; if you’ve gained weight, developed chronic pain, or changed your sleep style, you may need a mattress that’s softer or firmer than your old one. If you’re not sure, look for a mattress manufacturer that offers three different firmness profiles: plush soft, luxury firm, and firm. That way, you can choose what feels best for your body.

Your phone is a portal to endless beauty tips and makeup tutorials, but at the end of the day, it could be what’s keeping you from your beauty rest. Instead of making your phone an enemy, turn it into an ally. With a comfortable bed, a dark room, and soothing bedtime sounds, you’ll have no trouble getting the rest you need to wake up feeling youthful and energized.
