Quick & Easy Tips For Youthful, Smooth & Supple Skin

Tips For Smooth & Supple Skin

Curious how Lauryn gets her incredible skin, as you can see above? Of course it’s the pure joy of facial massage and products that work, but it’s also with the help of her facialists. One of them being Staci Christie.

Staci was recently on The HIM  HER Show sharing so much knowledge. With a background in surgical procedures and decades of experience in the industry, this is an episode where you’ll want to take notes.  In the episode she is telling us the best and worst things you can do for your skin, her favorite brands (one is Skinceuticals), plus filler and procedures. She even gives us the simplest skincare regime anyone can follow and one of her top tool recommendations (hint: it’s this one).

Today Staci is back on the blog today, this time giving us some simple, easy tips to ensure our skin stays youthful, smooth & HEALTHY as we age.

You may have met Staci in this post, where she gave us so many tips to avoid maskne during the pandemic. Lauryn is obsessed with her spa and seeing her for facials when she’s in San Diego and today she’s sharing her #1 skin tip (pssst, it’s SPF, always) and other ways we can keep our skin (& our kids’ skin) as healthy as possible.

Staci really takes care of her skin, as you can see below. She looks incredible, is so knowledgeable and one of the most experienced medical aesthetician’s Lauryn has ever met.  We’re so happy to have her here again.

With that, let’s welcome Staci back to the blog.

Quick & Easy Tips For Youthful, Smooth & Supple Skin

♡ Wear SPF

“Do I really need to wear SPF every day? What if it’s cloudy outside? But I’m in  the office all day. “The answer is simply, YES! You do need to wear SPF every day. 

Large brim hats and sunglasses along with SPF is a must while you spend time  enjoying the outdoors, too. The sun’s harmful rays take a toll on your skin, destroying collagen fibers resulting in aging, loss of elasticity, wrinkling, and increasing the  risk of skin cancer and cataracts. 

Tips For Smooth & Supple Skin

♡ Lifestyle Matters

Here’s the reality of aging. EVERY lifestyle choice you make today affects the  way you look and feel tomorrow.  In our teenage years, many of us have flawless tanned skin & we’re looking and feeling like a superstar. Fast forward 10-20 years & your skin is spotted, sagging, and wrinkled. So if you start taking really good care of your skin at a young age (I’m talking 10+, as soon as you know the importance of brushing and flossing, you should be using a good gentle cleanser, moisturizer, and SPF daily (mom’s  please protect your kid’s skin until they can make their own smart choices). 

♡ Simple Skincare

 By your early 20’s you’ll benefit from a skin care regimen to suit the needs of your skin. I hate to be a buzzkill, but skincare is not a one size fits all. The latest  greatest Tik Tok craze that your BFF swears makes his/her skin glow is not necessarily the right choice for your skin. This is where I can  step in to help you choose the right products for your individual skin needs. 

NEVER EVER go to bed with your makeup on. Always double-cleanse your skin  at night and at least apply a moisturizer. Even if you’re not wearing makeup, your sunscreen and pollutants from our air make it necessary to always cleanse your  skin both morning and night. I suggest using a little bottled water on a cotton round as your final rinse, some city water is filthy. This will also ensure that your skin is clean and ready for your regimen.

Generally speaking, you need a good cleanser, serum, moisturizer, and SPF. This is  a good starting point for everyone. Often your PM regimen will slightly differ for cellar turnover and to heal your skin barrier while you get your beauty rest. Again  this is where I can step in and help you choose what “your skin needs.”

Another good tip is to wash your sheets 1-2x a week or at the very least change your pillowcase. We sweat while we sleep, which can build  bacteria on your sheets and pillowcases that can contribute to breakouts, acne, and skin irritations. Silk pillowcases are a great choice for wrinkle reduction and can  help to keep your hair healthy.

♡ Consistency

Try to create your skin care regimen to become your “me time” and enjoy the  process of cleansing your skin, properly applying your products and enjoying the  benefits of your glowing gorgeous skin as a result of your self-care. Incorporating the HOT MESS Ice Roller and PINK BALLS Face  Massager to bring your skincare regimen to another level of self-love. 

Your skin will vary over a calendar year with changes in weather, stresses of life,  and your overall total wellness. I encourage my clients to check in with me at least  3-4 times a year to see if we need to tweak their at-home skincare regimen to fit their needs. I like to say we become partners. What you do at home with your skincare regimen makes what I provide for you in my treatment room much more effective and vice versa. Please remember skincare is not one size fits all, and SPF daily is essential for healthy, glowing skin.

Medical grade products are result driven and that is something I whole heartily believe in. I also incorporate a couple of natural lines that I love and use myself. 

♡ You Are What You Eat

Diet is another huge contributor to our total wellness and skin health. The saying  “you are what you eat and drink” holds true. Your gut health is also a major player. If you’re not pooping every day your skin will look like shit! No pun intended. Enjoy half of your body weight in ounces of water daily (100 lbs = 50 ounces of water), lots of fruit, veggies, and lean protein. Obviously,  if you’re experiencing extreme GI gut health issues or dietary challenges please  contact your doctor as you could have a very treatable medical issue. 

No matter what your age or gender, we all have different skin, general health issues and concerns that need a customized skincare regimen. I’m confident that I can help anyone at any age any where in the world, virtually or at my skin care boutique. 

I am available for virtual consultations as well as appointments at my skin care  boutique. Together we will create the perfect skin care regimen customized for  you.

STACI’S FAVES:

  1. In the podcast Staci ran down a list of all the things she takes during the day as far as supplements. And Lauryn said “don’t worry we will type this up and have it on the blog so you can come and see what Staci takes”. I would love to know her supplements, but they’re not listed in this post. Any way to get that list?

    1. Found an IG video of Staci talking about the stuff she takes every AM! Here are my notes (one of the products is missing so let us know if you uncover):

      1. First thing down the hatch — Bottled water, half a lemon, Quinton electrolytes
      2. Another bottled water, 2 tablespoons of Hany’s Harvest Fire Cider, package of Pyo-Spheric Vitamin C
      3. Pique matcha green tea, Natuer Holi Mane, almond milk, frother
      4. An hour later, Transformation Total Body Protein 30g, add some fruit

      AdvoCare Catalyst?

  2. Loved this episode! I’ve been trying to look for the high frequency wand that was mentioned as well, there’s too many to choose from on Amazon, was hoping to get a link to the one that you both recommend!
    Thanks for always providing useful and interesting content <3

  3. After listening to the pod, i came here for the link to the high-frequency wand that was talked about. Would you drop a link, please? 🙂 thanks!

  4. I too was hoping for the info on the high frequency wand. Can we get a link please? Thanks!!

  5. Loved this episode!! Filled with great information and Staci gave great energy-almost LB energy!!

  6. Love the Skinny Confidential and this was a great informative discussion. I note a lot of the products mentioned are very expensive, so some more affordable suggested options I’m sure would be welcome to those who are on tighter budgets. It’s disheartening to find out that the products tend to lean to the more pricier side and looking after your skin, from the expert advice given in this episode, should be accessible to all who want to listen, learn, improve and shine.
