Why I Started Using a Neck Tightening Cream

I’ve been a big fan of beauty products, and of course, treatments, going back a while now.  You can read about my experience getting old and how I coped with it if you follow that link.

Today, I have a revelation.  I’m using a new product!  It was given to me as part of a giveaway by a brand I know well.  The product is the Skin Pro Neck Tightening Cream.

What Does a Neck Cream Do?

Well, simply put, it attacks areas of your skin that aren’t on your face.  In specific, your neck. The neck and chest (well, upper chest) are areas that must not be overlooked when you do your skin care regimen.  You see, most people apply sunblock and anti aging creams to their face, their arms, and their legs.  However, they miss out on that “V Zone” that is between their chin and their chest.  This zone is a zone that is very tender and it can really make a big difference if you don’t apply lotion to it.

Think about it, because I’m guilty as anyone at this.

I wake up, I shower, I cleanse, and apply an eye serum.

Then, I apply SPF and moisturizer.

I do this to my face, then any leftover goes on my arms after I apply a body lotion.

Lastly, I FORGET my neck area. 

A neck firming cream is a product that can be used for those years of forgotten applications.  It is a product that will not only work to regenerate the skin on the neck and upper chest, but also something that will strengthen the skin there and help it come back to it’s supple self.  This skin can get very thin and wispy over the years when not cared for properly, but this cream is designed to be a corrective product to address that.

It’s not too late – you can use a neck cream to help you repair sagging skin and tighten the loose skin on your neck.  I have been using this product for a few weeks, and I’m a firm believer.  (Hear that, firm?)

You have two options:

  1.  Let everyone know your real age by letting your neck show your true age.
  2.  Use a neck cream to repair skin and get the advantage and take your skin care routine to the next level.

To me, it was an easy decision.   #neckcreams all the way!

My Emergency Hair Salon Visit in Riverhead New York

I was in a wedding in Riverhead, New York.  Little did I know I’d be caught in a torrential downpour of rain after a long day of shopping in the City.

Luckily for me, a cousin of mine recommended a hair salon.  I thought to myself, “when will I ever be in a hair salon in Riverhead NY?”

Shopping in NYC

So I end up in Hair Solutions, and they really helped me get my hair whipped back into shape.  I was shocked that they were uber professional, and really handled all my needs.

They were willing and able for me to come in and help me look my best for the big day, and I was very gracious for them being able to take me in there on short notice.  As you can imagine, Riverhead, New York, is not the largest city in the world.

In fact, it’s just north of 33,000 people.  Located on the North Shore of Long Island, this town is predominantly middle class and very normal.  To my amazement, this salon was one of the best things I’ve seen in the salon world.  For real, for such a small area to have such a nice place, it blew me away.  Then again, we were just steps from Long Island, and you know all the stuff they offer over there for the 1%!

This salon offers the following services:

  • Wigs
  • Hair extensions
  • Permanent extensions
  • Keratin treatments
  • Henna tattoos
  • Make Up
  • Waxing
  • Custom cuts for men, women, and children

So I looked great, felt great, and was ready for the wedding.  All in all, I owe a BIG THANK YOU to Hair Solutions for taking care of me.  If you are ever in this area, please check them out.  I’ll post their address because I’m just so grateful at all they did for me.

You all know I pay close attention to my body and appearance. I really pay attention to my skin, and of course pay attention to what I wear.

After all, I am a fashion diva.  🙂

You can also see the reviews on their Yelp Page.  They have a strong rating, and I’m only going to get it stronger.

 

Getting Old Sucks

As someone who works in entertainment, I always have to stay up on my good looks.  🙂

As I talked about here, celebrities go to great miles to get rid of their dark under eye circles and other blemishes.  It’s a constant battle to stay beautiful, and in this dog eat dog world, there is always someone trying to up their game and become the next talk of the town.

Today, I’m going to talk about my battle with eye wrinkles.  Otherwise known as “crow’s feet,” these are the nasty spider like lines that emerge from the side of the eyes and start to climb up the face onto the forehead.  Yuck!  They make us look old, and resemble that of a crow’s foot.

My Attempt At Getting Rid of Crow’s Feet With a Cream

So in the past I’ve talked about what I do to look my best.  Today, I took a serious leap of faith and invested in this product, maybe you’ve heard of it.  It’s called “Elite Serum Rx.”  That’s the link to it’s Amazon.com page.  After passing up on botox this month (mostly because my friend Gina did it and I was terrified – check out the video she made below for a skin care website), I decided it was time to invest in something that had the ability to not only get rid of my fine lines but also NOT BE INVASIVE OR CAUSE PAIN.

This is a big thing for me, because I’m terrified of pain and needles!

I found out about this product by reading a ton of eye serum reviews, mainly the ones on this eye serum website.  It talks about how it’s been manufactured in a laboratory in Florida by a pharmacist.  Sounds fancy, right?

Well, there are a number of good reviews, over 600 in fact, on their Amazon page. Their founder writes as an anti aging expert at the Huffington Post, so that should tell you something as well.  They cite science, and the use of the Argireline peptide in the cream, for it’s amazing ability to fight fine lines and make people look younger.  When I did some advanced research, I found that many people are singing praises about this product, especially

Check out the amazing research on this product at the link below:

You can see the amazing stats and why it’s been heralded by people like Dr. Oz.

Well, mine is in the mail.  I’m officially going to start my 30 day quest to look my best, as I call it around my house.

In addition, I’m doing this cleanse.  I think cleansing should be done at least once a month, although I’m really going to be missing my favorite foods over the next five days.

I’ll be back to update you guys in a few weeks!

Happy Friday!
