I’m back! My sincere apologies for not posting last week, but law school got a little crazy! If any of you are familiar with the second year of law school in the States, then you understand. I swear, assignments and responsibilities show up out of the blue. Anyways, this post is for those of us who can’t get at least eight hours of sleep because of all the stuff we have to deal with in law school.
Sleep is so so important for keeping that nice glowing skin that we all envy! You know that goddess-like Demi Lovato skin! Well, it is super hard to keep your skin glowing when you are only sleeping six or fewer hours per night. Recently, I decided to try a serum that promised to give me that beautiful glowing skin. Now, I am an avid user of the Ordinary Skincare line, so I was a bit hesitant to venture out into new, more expensive serums.
I got my hands on a Christmas Glow Kit from OleHenriksen and I must admit, I am obsessed! Let’s start with the ever so popular, Truth Serum. Now, if you can only afford one product from this line, I say get the Truth Serum. All you have to do is put this on in the morning before your makeup and your skin looks like you just drank a gallon of water. The Truth Serum claims to “Brightens, firms, fights visible signs of aging and delivers all-day hydration.” It is basically a very concentrated Vitamin C.
I have noticed my skin become brighter and more hydrated and I have only been using it for two weeks. This is even perfect for those days you do not have time to put makeup on and just want your skin to look brighter. Now, I have not stopped using my other Ordinary Products, but I have used those for over a year and adding the Truth Serum to my morning routine has really upped my skin game.
I would also recommend adding one of the lines’ moisturizers. They are soft and luxurious and also help brighten up your skin. Although, I have to say the moisturizers from this brand are not necessary.
One more thing! The Power Peel from Ole Henriksen is a game changer! I have never used a peel/ mask that works so well and does not make my skin look red and peely! This stuff works so well and is definitely worth the money. I use these peels on Friday nights when everyone I know is out drinking and all I want to do is sit at home with my boyfriend and watch a movie. I have to admit, this is also great for those mornings that you are super hungover and your skin looks ten years older than your actual age. Give this brand a try because it really is a miracle for those mornings when you just “can’t even”
Law school and grad school, in general, is grueling, but that does not mean you have to look like the “walking dead.” Remeber, a huge part of the legal profession is client interactions and physical appearance is important. Time is precious, so why not collect those few tips and tricks that help cut your routine down.
