By supporting the natural exfoliation process of your skin with a smart exfoliant such as I’m Fabulous Magic Exfoliating Masque, you are boosting collagen production, clarifying plugged pores, facilitating the creation of fresh new plump and juicy skin cells, and detoxifying congested complexions. Fennel seeds provide gentle but effective exfoliation and smell amazing!

I am totally in love with this 100% organic mask, that smell like licorice. 

I am outdoor a lots and get lots of toxins, and I wear makeup so my pores need to breathe more. 
Sweating is your body's natural method of cooling your skin, and wearing makeup can trap sweat and bacteria, blocking your pores. This can result in skin congestion, which can cause blackheads, skin irritation, and increased breakouts.
According to the American Academy of Dermatology, excessive washing can increase your chance of developing acne by irritating the skin and causing the pores to shut down and become clogged. Wash no more than twice a day, once in the morning and once at night to remove dirt and bacteria.
So I make sure I use a gently all natural cleanser. Always.
I have been using this mask every night before bedtime and my skin became super hydrated, super soft and glowing.

Rejuvenate Your Skin While Sleeping: Wear a Night Cream

Many of you might think that night cream is just a typical ploy to get you to part with your hard-earned cash; and with good reason, as there are simply too many products out there that claim to rejuvenate and refresh tired-looking skin. But, beyond the ads and perky claims, wearing a night cream has real benefits for your skin. From choosing the right products for your skin type to following a routine before flopping in your bed, here are some things you might want to know about why a night cream might be good for your skin. 

Choosing the Right Cream

The seasons have different effects on your skin. Your skin type also dictates the kind of cream that you need to use. Unfortunately, weeding through the countless number of night creams is a gargantuan task that might make you give up in a heartbeat. To help the process go faster, you should be looking for specific ingredients that are present in skincare products once you have identified your skin types.

Humectants for Dry Skin

Skin in extreme weather will not fare well given environmental factors such as indoor heating, dry air, heat, wind and the cold. Products that contain humectants will work for you because they seal in moisture. Glycerin, hyaluronic acid, and shea butter are some of the ingredients that you should look for. You will even find even these ingredients in your favorite foundation which are responsible for giving your skin a moisturized and even appearance. Other ingredients that work wonders for dry skin include lanolin oil, tremella extract, AHA, and sodium PCA. Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHA) are used in improving skin condition, cleansing pores and smoothing facial lines.

Peptides and Vitamin C

All types of skin benefit from peptides which are known to boost collagen production. Collagen improves the elasticity of the skin contributing to a firmer epidermis. Include products that contain peptides to improve the appearance of your skin. Vitamin C is another important component that is useful in the production of collagen. A night cream that contains vitamin C helps in treating skin pigmentation and prevents changes in premature aging.

Other Antioxidants

Sun damage is something that can be addressed by moisturizers and night creams. Vitamin E, coenzyme Q, green tea and idebenone are antioxidants that help improve the skin’s condition and reduces stress by decreasing free radicals. Green tea, for example, is a well-known antioxidant with amazing benefits on the skin. It alleviates sun damage and protects & soothes the skin. Chamomile and aloe vera also calm the skin while fatty acids and ceramides trap moisture to help fix the protective skin barrier.

Specific ingredients found in night creams and moisturizers provide benefits to your skin while you are sleeping. These components repair damage, improve suppleness and enhance the protective barrier for a better-looking skin.

My review on the new Biologique Recherche Lotion P50

bought the Biologique Recherche Lotion P50 
on my last trip to Paris. 

Lotion P50T is a new version of Lotion P50 that has a slightly higher pH level. 

  • Alpha-hydroxy acids: Specifically, lactic acid (derived from milk sugars) and citric acid (from lemons and oranges). The activity level of AHAs can vary, depending on how concentrated they are and the pH of the formula. In Biologique Recherche products, the molecules have a high acid ratio and low salt—which means they are both exfoliating and hydrating.
  • Cider vinegar: Created from fermented apples, cider vinegar contains citric and malic acids. Thanks to its high tannin content, it also has purifying and astringent properties.
  • Beta-hydroxy acid: Salicylic acid is naturally synthesized by certain plants, such as willow, and has an anti-inflammatory effect. Compared to AHAs, it penetrates the pores more easily in order to dissolve dead cells that may be causing obstructions. 
  • Poly-hydroxy acid: Gluconolactone is present in honey and fruit juices. It's a less penetrative exfoliant than AHAs, but also less irritating.
  • Niacinamide: My favourite ingredient for fading skin pigmentation also has an anti-inflammatory effect that can help with acne. 
  • Horseradish, burdock and capsicum extracts: The horseradish has antibacterial properties and can help regulate sebum production. Capsicum is purifying and antiseptic, while burdock is moisturizing, healing and calming. Burdock also has the unique ability to balance combination skin, hydrating dry zones while purifying and regulating oily areas.
  • Magnesium chloride: It has healing, antiseptic and sebum-regulating qualities that can hep with acne and eczema.
  • Arnica extract: It has a soothing, protective and anti-inflammatory action.
  • Natural moisturizing factors: These are ingredients, such as urea, lactates and sugars, that mimic the substances found in healthy skin.

Ingredients (Lotion P50T): Water (Aqua), Glycerin, Sodium Gluconate, Niacinamide, Propylene Glycol, Lactic Acid, Magnesium Chloride, Vinegar (Acetum), Citric Acid, Cochlearia Armoracia (Horseradish) Root Extract, Arctium Lappa Root Extract, Arnica Montana Flower Extract, Capsicum Frutescens Fruit Extract, Serine, Urea, Allantoin, Sodium Lactate, Sodium Salicylate, Sodium Benzoate, TEA-Lactate, Sorbitol.

Finally the Phenol was removed in the new lotion!

The phenol-free version of the original formula, targeted at normal to oily, thick skin. This info's not from the brand, but I understand it has a concentration of 12.85 percent AHA.

I followed this direction on how to use:

Step 1: If you're new to acids, start by dampening a cotton pad with a bit of water.  The water will dilute the acid until you become accustomed to it. After the first week, you can use Lotion P50T on dry cotton pads.
Step 2: After washing your face, apply a few drops of Lotion P50T to the pad, and swipe it across your face, neck and décollatage. 
Step 3: If you find it too strong, you can spray your skin with a face mist after a few moments, to neutralize the acid. Otherwise, simply leave it on your skin and continue with the rest of your regimen.
Do this twice a day, on bare skin after cleansing (and before moisturizing). 
And don't forget to use sun protection, as AHAs increase sun sensitivity.
The first thing I noticed is that Lotion P50T feels less "tingly" on the skin. Even though it has the same exfoliating ingredients, it's unfortunately not as strong.
My skin was red for an hour following application and got really dry. 
I like the ingredient but not a fan of UREA. 
Some of the benefits you can expect (and that I have experienced myself):
  • Brighter, more even skin tone
  • Fewer acne breakouts
  • Less oil production
  • Gradual reduction in pore size
  • Fading of pigmentation
  • Softened appearance of fine lines

Derived from milk, fruit, vegetables and other plants, Lactic Acid is one of the most popular Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHA) found in anti-acne and anti-aging products and chemicals peels. 
Like other AHAs, Lactic Acid has been known to help reduce acne breakouts and the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and other signs of aging. 
What differentiates it from others, however, is its reputation. Noticeably gentler than Glycolic Acid, Lactic Acid is effective in acne-pronedry and mature skin types without irritating the skin (some formulations are even gentle enough for rosacea).
It’s hardly a recent discovery though; goat’s milk was used as an ancient lactic acid spa treatment, and legend has it that Cleopatra soaked in milk baths sprinkled in with rose petals.

What does it do to your skin:

  • Hydrates complexion;
  • Increases natural barrier lipids in skin’s outer layers to help prevent skin’s natural oils and water from escaping;
  • Helps stimulate collagen production;
  • Encourages outermost layer to shed quicker to reveal healthier, newer skin;
  • Helps promote cell turnover;
  • Softens the skin.

Why it is so good"

It exfoliates without irritating the skin the way a traditional granular scrub would. It’s an anti-acne and anti-aging ingredient all in one, keeping skin in check and leaving it baby smooth to the touch.
Lactic Acid is the perfect stepping stone from which you can work your way up to a stronger AHA like Glycolic Acid; it’s also a great way to help prepare your skin for a chemical peel.

What You Should Know

Like all AHAs, Lactic Acid increases the skin’s sensitivity to the sun. (AHAs work to slough off the outermost layer of skin, leaving this new layer vulnerable to UV rays.) Be sure to take extra care by using a broad spectrum UVA/UVB sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 every day.
I'm Fabulous Cosmetics has this amazing all natural skin peel with all natural ingredients and lactic acid in it. The Bio Gorgeous Peel smell so wonderful, very fruity and feels amazing on your skin. It is so easy to apply because there is no mixing and you can use it at home when your skin needs it the most. Anis call it her rescue peel. "you can use it before an event to refresh your skin before makeup for a glowing, super smooth look".

  • Help anti-aging serum and cream actives penetrate deeper and faster into your skin. 
  • Very safe to use and excellent for Acne. 
  • Great also if you are a first-time peel user. 

Enzymes like alpha hydroxy acids help the skin exfoliated.  

AHA’s loosen the top layer of dead cells a primarily composed of keratin, while on the other hand enzymes dissolve the keratinized layer. 

Papaya and pineapple are great sources of proteolytic (protein dissolving) plant enzymes. This extract is formulated to enhance the enzyme properties of the separate extracts to create the perfect exfoliating and renewing blend.

The protein-dissolving enzyme papain can only be found in papayas. Papain is at its highest level just before the papaya ripens, while it is still green. 

The powerful papain enzyme dissolves dead and damaged skin cells. Papaya is great for blemishes, mature skin, dandruff, large pores, and sunspots. 

Some research shows that the enzyme papain is useful as an exfoliant where excess keloids have formed during wound healing. 

Pineapple contains the enzyme bromelain and alpha hydroxy acids (malic acid; citric acid; tartaric acid; glycolic acid).

Dermaplaning is a safe and effective procedure for exfoliating the epidermis and ridding skin of vellus hair (peach fuzz).

Dermaplaning is a safe and effective procedure for exfoliating the epidermis and ridding skin of vellus hair (peach fuzz). The result of Dermaplaning is radiant soft skin over which makeup glides on smoothly. You'll find your makeup looking far less caked and more natural looking.

  • Removes dead skin and peach fuzz
  • Softens skin and reduces the appearance of fine lines
  • Helps serums and peels penetrate more effectively!

  • Our dermaplaning tool removes dead skin and peach fuzz
  • Creates a smoother, more even complexion
  • Softens fine lines
  • Makeup applies more smoothly
  • Removes dead skin and debris
  • Increases product penetration
Removing the peach fuzz is beneficial since the fine hairs trap debris and oils and give skin a dull look. After dermaplaning, skin care products and treatments perform much more efficiently since they can penetrate the skin more easily. Your makeup goes on smoother as well!

It's the perfect procedure to begin stacking other treatments, like TCA Multi Acid Face Peel, Serums, and MicroRoller.


CLEANSE: Cleanse and dry skin thoroughly.

RESURFACE: Beginning at the top of the cheekbone near the hairline, hold your skin taut and gently glide the dermaplaning tool towards the nose using short strokes. Continue until you have resurfaced the entire cheek and jaw. Repeat light strokes on the chin, above the lips, and on the forehead. Do not use on eyelids, eyebrows, hairlines, sides of nose, or lips. DO NOT go to any facial area more than once.

The difference Between Jessner & TCA Peels

Chemical peels are used to treat different skin problems such as acne, sun spots, fine lines, wrinkles, and uneven skin tone and texture. They involve the use of chemicals such as glycolic acid, salicylic acid, Jessner's solution, trichloroacetic acid (TCA) and phenol. 

The chemical is applied to your skin and then removed after some time. The top layer of your skin peels off as a result, revealing newer, more youthful-looking skin. TCA and Jessner peels are two popular types of chemical peels.


TCA peels are available in different strengths or concentrations. The stronger the solution is, the deeper it penetrates the different layers of your skin. Superficial peels are done with 10 to 20 percent and 25 to 35 percent TCA; medium-depth peels are done with 40 to 50 percent TCA, and a deep peel results from the use of greater than 50 percent TCA. According to "The Color Atlas of Chemical Peels," the use of TCA with a concentration above 35 percent gives unpredictable results such as scarring. The book "Aesthetics and Cosmetic Surgery for Darker Skin Types" states that TCAs at concentrations of 50 percent have been discontinued because it puts dark-skinned patients at risk for hypopigmentation, hyperpigmentation, and scarring.
Jessner's solution is available in one strength only, but the depth to which it penetrates your skin can be increased by applying several layers of the solution during a Jessner peel.


A Jessner peel, according to the book "Aesthetics and Cosmetic Surgery for Darker Skin Types," is a superficial peel that is used to treat photoaging, age spots, acne, post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, melasma and freckles. Jessner peels should not be used on pregnant women or people who are allergic to any of its components.
TCA peels are used for superficial- or medium-depth peels and can treat moderate photoaging, actinic keratosis, blotchy hyperpigmentation, melasma, mild to medium rhytides and superficial acne scars. The best are TCA peels with low strength for excellent results. Some skin and TCA peels offer now downtime. 

Side Effects

According to "The Color Atlas of Chemical Peels," a Jessner peel has minimal side effects. However, its resorcinol and salicylic acid components have the potential to cause thyroid disease and salicylism, respectively. Some symptoms of salicylism are ringing in the ears, dizziness, confusion or disorientation. However, there have been no reported cases of salicylism, according to "Aesthetics and Cosmetic Surgery for Darker Skin Types."
Some complications of TCA peels are bacterial, viral or fungal infections, skin scarring, acne and change in your skin's texture.
