I wanted to make the event a little easier for you to navigate by sharing a few of my favorite items to purchase.

Best Items for Anti-Aging
I have grown increasingly obsessed with skincare regimens that prevent the signs of aging. It started at age 27 when my first fine line appeared and it has yet to subside! I recently went to Sephora and their team of experts helped me identify products that would exfoliate my dry skin, promote the growth of new skin cells, and curb the ticking time clock.
The first problem we identified was my flaky nose issue. Seriously, it’s a BIG issue! My makeup never goes on properly because I have extra dry skin on my nose that tends to cause flakes and make my makeup look cakey. This exfoliating peel gel lives up to its impeccable reputation. I love that you can actually WATCH the skin ball up and fall off your face. And as you may know, exfoliating helps to remove dead skin cells and prevent aging.
After my peel gel, I follow up with this Sunday Riley night oil to fight fine lines. The night oil has retinol cream which helps dramatically to prevent aging. Did you know that when you turn 27 retinols like Retin-A start to become “cosmetic” at your dermatologist so they cost more? Ditch the prescription and try this sweet-smelling formula instead.
My final step in this new routine is this AWESOME sleeping facial. Apparently, greek yogurt is a skin care savior?! The traditional Greek remedy provides a natural source of proteins, minerals, and vitamins to instantly nourish stressed, dry skin. I wake up feeling hydrated with noticeably softer and brighter skin. So far I’m loving it!
Best Items in My Makeup Bag
I’ve written about my favorite cruelty-free beauty products quite a bit, but I still have some more favorites up my sleeve. From a CC cream with a cult following to the best primer in existence, I can’t start the day without these products. What are the beauty products you can’t live without?
