3 Easy Changes that will Improve Your Skin Drastically - M Loves M

With the end of my 20s in sight {yikes!}, skincare has become a top priority for me. Gone are the days where I could fall into bed with a face of makeup on. Ah just typing that makes me shudder! Taking care of my skin is something that’s very important to me, but also something that I really enjoy. I love learning about, and trying, new products and seeing what works best for my skin profile. I thought I’d share 3 Easy Changes that will Improve your Skin drastically, if you aren’t already doing them that is. I’m excited to partner with Vichy Laboratoires to show you 3 steps that have become absolutely crucial in my daily and weekly skincare routine.

3 Easy Changes that will Improve Your Skin Drastically

finding a good eye cream

1. Find a Good Eye Cream and use it twice a day!

An eye cream wasn’t always at the top of skincare priority list but, as I’ve gotten older, I’ve realized this is a step that I can’t ever forget. I apply an  eye cream at the beginning and end of the day and I swear I’ve noticed a huge difference. If you all follow me on InstaStories you know there are nights where I don’t get to bed until after 2am, and then Augustine is up once before his typical 5:30am wake up call. Since having a baby I really don’t get that much sleep, but my under eyes are keeping the secret for me! Thank goodness! I’ve been using the Liftactiv Eyes from Vichy and I have the best things to say about it! It is incredible at depuffing the skin under my eye bags and minimizing dark circles. When I go a few days without this eye cream I totally notice a difference! Also, a little goes a long way. I’ve been using the same tube for months now! Read the reviews on this eye cream and you’ll seriously want it yesterday!

2. Invest in a Serum

A serum used to be one of those mystery products- what was it exactly and was it necessary? I didn’t really understand its purpose so I put the product on the backburner. Serums are crucial though! They contain so many nutrients that your skin needs to stay healthy and radiant, and also fight signs of aging and dehydration. I was first attracted to the Vichy brand from a serum, so I always fall back on theirs. About 4 years ago I was at an event for Target Beauty and they were highlighting the fact that they had added some luxury skincare brands to their product catalog. I went around and chatting with different estheticians and dermatologists, and multiple people raved to me about Vichy. I left with one of their serums {this one!} and fell in love immediately. I always default to Vichy for their serums in particular, and the Idélia Radiance Serum  has become a new favorite. It has smoothed out my skin so much, has shrunk some of my largest pores and my skin is always soft and hydrated. I love that it has the Vichy Mineralizing Thermal Water in it too! There are so many essential minerals in there that help fight against stress and pollution {so needed in LA!}

3. Do weekly, or ideally bi-weekly masks

Make time to mask! Sometimes, putting a mask on can seem like extra work, but I’m never sorry after I do one. I try to enjoy the experience by watching a favorite TV show or doing a little double pampering with an at-home mani. The best way for me to remember to fit in masks is to do them on certain days of the week. My mask nights are usually Sunday night and Wednesday night- end of the week, and middle of the week. I love the Double Glow Peel Mask because it makes me skin super soft and glowy! I try to do one before a photoshoot too because my skin always looks tons better the day after! This mask has volcanic rocks in it, if you can believe it! The rocks help exfoliate the skin, while the fruit acids gently peel off dead skin cells. If you can’t get to the spa, this mask is for you! Plus, the price is so so good!

  • Eye cream is a MUST! I cannot start or end my day without it. A good mask always helps too if you need a quick fix of hydration or repair. I’ve never tried Vichy products, but these look so dreamy!

    I don’t actually have a proper routine yet but I want to invest in a good eye cream. I’m 25 (26 in June) and I know I need to develop a routine now. I do like to use face masks though, but not frequently enough, which has to change.

    Serums are such a master to me too! What are some of the things to look out for and when is the best time to apply? Before makeup or before bedtime?
