One of the first things that you notice as you walk around Paris is that thin is in, and perfect skin is de rigueur. Especially this year, when makeup is OUT and the natural look is IN. I noticed the no makeup, no lipstick, au natural look throughout the city. A few months ago, I would have felt out of place, but thankfully I’ve been using a skin care line that has made marked improvement in my skin, so I felt comfortable wearing nothing more than a tiny bit of concealer under my jet lagged eyes, one swipe of mascara and a bit of gloss on my lips…THAT’S IT!
When I was younger, I did a lot of damage to my skin…getting too much sun (baby oil slathered), going to sleep with my makeup on, and using bar soap to wash. The Parisians take a lot of care when it comes to their skin. Great products, facials, etc. are not luxuries, but IMPORTANT to their daily routine. I had made a conscious decision to do the same even BEFORE I went on my recent trip back to Paris.
My secret? Sibu Beauty has helped me to improve my hair, skin and nails not only by using products ON my skin…but also by using their supplements. I’ve been using the super-fruit Sea Buckthorn found in the Tibetan Himalayas. With over 190 bioactive compounds, sea buckthorn is an great source of Omega 3, 6, and 9, as well as the elusive essential fatty acid, Omega-7, which is essential fatty acid that helps collagen production and healthy skin, hair and nails.
Used since the 13th century, the sea buckthorn berry has been traditionally been used for:
* Sustained energy levels
* Improved cellular health
* Cardiovascular support
* Healthy inflammation response
* Joint support
* Moisturizing dry and damaged skin
* Improved immune health
* Decrease in wrinkles and fine lines
* Addressing exzema and rosacea symptoms
I’m here to say, that with a history like that, I shouldn’t have been as shocked as I was to see such dramatic improvement. The cool part is that taking Sibu Beauty’s supplement has had a WONDERFUL side effect…it’s helped me with my weight loss program. Even Dr. Oz included it in his show (check out the video of his show – there’s a bottle of Sibu Beauty on the table) …
My routine is pretty simple. Each morning & evening I wash with sibu beauty’s facial cleanser. In the morning it is followed by some of their hydrating serum and facial cream. With breakfast I quickly take a Sea buckthorn Omega 7 softgel supplement and do the same in the evening.
Sibu Beauty also makes a facial soap with a natural astringent, perfect for those with oily skin (mine is extremely dry). It helps to repair the skin and at the same time protects against UV rays and cell damaging free radicals.
I’ve also been drinking an ounce of the Sea buckthorn liquid supplement each day (that’s what is seen in the Dr. Oz show). This is to help improve your hair and nails, as well as improve your skin tone.
It’s just as easy as my OLD routine (since I take vitamins daily anyway), yet I’m getting better results. Yes, I went without full makeup in Paris. I took a quick glance as I walked past a mirror in Galeries Lafayette and liked what I saw. There was NO need to buy new skincare products on this trip, as Sibu Beauty is working very well.
While I received products to facilitate this review, all opinions are mine and results are real. Just sayin….
