Last week, I had the pleasure of attending the launch of Custom DOSE by SkinCeuticals at The Ottawa Skin Clinic. Custom D.O.S.E is a new professional service offered at SkinCeuticals partner spas, which combines” high-potency ingredients with professional expertise to create a personalized corrective serum just for you – developed, measured, and dispensed in only 10 minutes.”
Finally, a skin care routine tailored for me. I have been using the new Idealia skincare by Vichy line for a week now, and it’s too amazing not to share. Sometimes I feel ridiculous using age defying products, maybe it’s because I am blessed with healthy skin, or maybe because I am in denial of my age (33 isn’t old, is it?). Regardless, I don’t want to use old lady cream just yet. I appreciate that most lines have a “protect skin now, enjoy it later” attitude, but it makes me feel old to think that wrinkles are in my not-so-distant future.
Before going on my trip to Cancun, I rediscovered a way to tame my hair from the frizz brought on by the humidity of the ocean. I am a true mermaid, and love everything about the beach, but my hair isn’t exactly the nicest when it’s full of salt and sand. With my hair being shorter than usual, I find I need to style it more, to look it’s best. This combination means I need more moisture and shaping.
Being the lazy person that I am, when it comes to my beauty routine (yes! It’s true!), I’m so happy I rekindled my love for this oversized hair elastic I have been hoarding for the past 5 years. I thought I lost it today, and I almost cried.
I washed my hair with Fekkai Essential Shea, and added some Osis Soft ‘N Straight balm to my clean wet hair.
This is my air dried hair. See, I need help 😩.
I place the elastic over my head and start twisting strands of hair all the way around.
Do that to the entire head.
Let is sit under your tuque and go tobogganing with your family.
