Happy New Year My Beauties! I hope that 2019 is off to a fabulous start for you. Like most people, the onset of the new year brings a renewed commitment to health and wellness as a way to bounce back after all the over indulging we tend to do during the holiday season, am I right? For me, with all of my travels, eating rich (but delicious!) food, drinking more alcohol than normal, slacking on my regular fitness routine and getting lazy with my skincare regimen, I am more than ready for a wellness reboot. With that being said, I am making health and wellness my top priority this January and I am sharing my plan of action with you as a way to stay accountable and motivated. Care to join me?
How do I intend to Reset My Wellness Routine in 2019?
- Cut Back on Excess First and foremost, I intend to cut back on carbs, sugar, alcohol, late night eating and dining out. I am a girl who tends to overdo it, you know?! I am going to keep better track of what I eat, eat at home more often, say no to rich foods more frequently and limit drinking alcohol to just the weekends. This feels very doable!
- Eat cleaner & seasonal As a foodie eating seasonal literally feeds my soul, so I am going to make more of an effort to regularly visit my local farmers market and cook beautiful and simple food that highlights the best of the season. This one is a no brainer!
- Be More Active When I am stressed and busy, exercise is the first thing to go, how about for you? Ironically, it’s what we need the most to mitigate stress! I am committing to get back to my beloved hot yoga, walking with girlfriends, hiking, and walking my dog more than my hubby 🙂 And I want to try and make fitness more fun and less of another thing on my to do list. I recently discovered a super fun fitness class where you learn routines to famous Broadway musicals. Being a musical theater buff, this class tickled my soul and it’s so much fun that it doesn’t feel like a workout. I am going to try to go at least twice a month!
- Refresh My Skin Last but certainly not least, I want to rejuvenate my skin in the new year in order to keep it looking its healthy, glowing best! Being over 50, keeping my skin looking radiant and youthful (without having excessive treatments) is a top priority heading into the new year and thanks to StriVectin’s New Skin Reset 4-Week Intensive Skin Rejuvenation System, my skin is looking refreshed and read to take on 2019!
What is the StriVectin Skin Reset?
Many of you have heard me rave about StriVectin before because they are a brand that is committed to pushing the boundaries of skincare innovation. The brand is best known for their ground breaking NIA-114 technology, a patented molecule that has been clinically proven to strengthen your skin’s barrier, supercharge the performance of other ingredients and deliver visible transformational results.
The Skin Reset 4-Week Intensive Skin Rejuvenation System ($139) is an incredibly innovative synergistic skincare treatment powered by NIA-114TM, performance enhancing peptides and advanced botanical blends. This breakthrough 28 Day System is designed to rebuild, balance, boost and restore your skin with sequential synergy, which means that each weekly formula builds off the benefits of the previous week’s formula. This synergistic technology is rather profound because it delivers significant and noticeable results after just one month without the need to head to your derm’s office or local med-spa and spend a lot of money for a professional procedure.
Even though I take really good care of my skin, there is always room for improvement. So when StriVectin reached out and asked me if I wanted to try out their brand new skin rejuvenating system, I jumped at the chance because it aligned very well with my wellness goals for 2019. At 51, my skin is relatively firm, smooth and supple, however my biggest frustration is age spots and pigmentation and I am always interested in products that lighten and brighten my face. Here’s what my skin looked like without any makeup in natural light BEFORE I did the 28 day Reset:
Let me tell you more about this four week transformative skincare system and then let’s take a closer look at the impressive results!
WEEK 1: REBUILD
The first week of the Reset is designed to replenish your skin’s protective layer, preventing water loss and restoring optimal, lasting hydration. After using this serum for a week, my normally dry skin felt hydrated, supple and a bit more plump. The active ingredients in the Week 1 formula include Sea Salt Ferment, Himalayan Herbal Extract, Tripeptide, CoEnzyme Q10 and NIA-114TM.
WEEK 2: BOOST
The second week of the Reset is designed to improve elasticity and visibly relax fine lines and wrinkles. After using this serum for a week, my skin looked fresher and a bit more smooth. The active ingredients in the Week 2 formula include Ceramides, Wild Yam Root, Collagen-Boosting Hexapeptide, Electric Daisy Flower and NIA-114TM.
WEEK 3: BALANCE
The third week of the Reset is designed to make your complexion more radiant and even-toned. This is the week that I really noticed a significant visible difference in my skin. It looked brighter, more luminous and radiant and my pesky pigmentation was less noticeable. The active ingredients in the Week 3 formula include Phyto-active Plant Extracts, Tetrapeptide, Micro Algae, and NIA-114TM.
WEEK 4: RESTORE
The last week of the Reset is designed to make your skin more resilient and improve the look of sagging skin and deep wrinkles. After completing this 4-week skincare system and taking a closer look at my before and after results/photos, I saw a significant difference in my skin overall, especially in terms of it being smoother, brighter and more lifted. The active ingredients in the Week 4 formula include Oligopeptide, Blackjack Extract, Adaptogenic ‘Resurrection Plant’ and NIA-114TM.
What were my results after the StriVectin Skin Reset?
After four weeks of diligently using the StriVectin Skin Reset Serums twice daily, I can honestly say that I am incredibly impressed with the results. The most significant difference that I see in my skin is that my dark spots and pigmentation are noticeably diminished and my entire face looks brighter, more radiant and luminous. Amazing!
This system really worked wonders on my pigmentation, Wow! It even addressed some of the annoying pigmentation under my eyes which totally makes me look old and tired. I am so impressed with this overall brightening and love how my skin is totally glowing and it looks lit from within!
I had a frustrating brown spot on my left cheek from picking and these products noticeably lightened it. You can see the difference in these before and after shots.
Not only did Skin Reset impressively target pigmentation, it also did a nice job smoothing fine lines and it gave my face a slightly lifted, tighter and fresher appearance. I think the profile pictures capture it really well.
Overall, I am extremely impressed with StriVectin’s Skin Reset 4-Week Intensive Skin Rejuvenation System. It is one of the most impressive skincare regimen’s that I have tried in a while, and honestly it delivers the caliber of results that I have come to expect from costly professional skincare treatments. I can easily see and feel the results on my skin and in my overall appearance and I like it. I can’t recommend this system highly enough, it is extremely RAVE worthy!
