The French Way to Maintaining Youthful Skin

by
LAURYN

As you guys know, I have discussed facial massage at length. This is by far THE beauty tip of the century. But when I travel I find it interesting to observe other cultures & see how they implement specific beauty tips into their routine & I like to see how it differs from Americans.

Anyway facial massage is LITERALLY everything. My friend, Jules Wick first told me about facial massage when I was recovering from double jaw surgery & was experiencing major swelling. It totally changed my skin! It drained my face, smoothed out wrinkles, plumped up my face in the best way, & got rid of bloating.

Today though, I want to talk specifically about the way French women utilize facial massage because it’s different than Americans. I’ve been reading Ageless Beauty the French Way: Secrets from Three Generations of French Beauty Editors by Clemence von Mueffling.

Why Your Skin Needs Baby Wash Cloths

You guys.

Today I have the hottest skin care tip to share. But first, I’ll tell you how I found out about this amazing hack.

I was listening to Jule of the Jule The Bee on the Hashtag No Filter with Julie Lauren podcast & Jule gave the most amazing recommendation. She discussed how instead of using a dirty, nasty-ass towel on your face she uses another very specific towel. & not only is this a towel for your face, it’s actually a towel meant for newborns.

BABY WASH CLOTHS.

Now, this is a good idea for so many reasons. It’s going to be gentler, softer & just better overall for the fragile skin on your face. The ones Jule uses are pre-rolled with this cute little ribbon so they’re perfect to have on display in your bathroom & they’re ready to go for when you want to take your makeup off.

How to Get Rid of Those Jowls in 5 Minutes

Hi, hello, we meet again, & SHOCKER…we’re talking about skin.

Facial massage is something I get asked about over & over. & yes, we’ve talked about it many times on The Skinny Confidential but I wanted to show you guys how to do it without a tool, just your hands & a bomb ass oil. This way you can do it anywhere, anytime, for practically free.

This specific oil we’re using is one of my favorites. I’ve talked about it before- it’s Superfood by Elemis. I’ve talked about it 100 times, yada yada, I know, BUT IT’S SO GOOD. It’s one I’m constantly going back to. Superfood is lightweight, really gets into the skin to nourish it, & reduces fine lines & wrinkles which makes it perfect for facial massage.

Benefits of Superfood Facial Oil by Elemis:

♡ highly concentrated vegan formula.

♡ contains antioxidant & omega-rich broccoli, flax seed & daikon radish to …

ANXIETY IS A BITCH: HOW TO DEAL

by
LAURYN

The truth is the last couple weeks I have been going through some debilitating anxiety.

I feel like it has to do with the fact that I have packed my schedule to the brim along with some family stuff ( which isn’t my story to tell at the moment but maybe sometime soon ). The combination of my calendar being overwhelming & the family stuff has just been a lot for some reason.

I go through seasons with anxiety.

It’s funny like that, you know.

One minute you feel completely normal & then a random ( Monday ) you will wake up…feeling ‘off.’

This morning particularly I noticed that the feeling was creeping in. The anxiousness has been hanging out, like I said, for the last couple months but today it just really set in.

Again: the combo of the jammed packed schedule with the family shit sent me over the edge.

Stupid me, being …
