We have been talking about clean lifestyle and clean beauty for a while. Since pregnancy and birth, I have been looking for a clean solution for my makeup. There was no perfect clean makeup brand that I could switch to. Most of the clean makeup products (I tried) were not designed for full coverage looks under flashlights. As a mom, I desperately need a full range of makeup products that use clean and safe ingredients. Clove & Hallow changed the game. Clove & Hallow products got everything I need for the face. They are clean and sustainable. Now I can wear makeup while caring for my one-year-old baby.
CHRISHANXOXO | Why You Need Anti-aging Skincare for Neck and Chest | a Lola Skincare Collective Review
When I reviewed my skincare routine, I just realized that I had too many products for face and body but I never took enough care of my neck and chest. They won't be my priorities in the 20s. But after 30, I started to have some fine lines and saggy skin on my neck and chest. After having my first baby this summer, with the fluctuation of weight during and after pregnancy, my neck and chest skin was even thinner and saggier than before. These neglected areas often give out the age. I regretted that I didn't pay attention to these areas. I need to update my daily skin care regime before it's too late.
Here is my minimalist skincare routine with five quick steps - exfoliating, hydrating and nourishing followed with eye and lip treatments.
@paulaschoice 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant smooths my skin and brings out my natural glow! @paulaschoice Omega+ Complex Serum hydrates the skin with its lightweight formula. @dermalogica super rich repair secures the moisture and defends against environmental damages.
@perriconemd Cold Plasma Plus+ Eye Advanced Eye Cream takes care of my under-eye fine lines and dryness.
@kaplanmdskincare Lip 20 Mask leaves my lips moisturized and soft.
Which type of exfoliant do you like? I just found my favorite exfoliant product that I can't live without...
Microblading saves life! I would never image my brows can be this full and sharp. Thank you @ink_sydneyjaccarya for the amazing eyebrows. I don’t have much natural brows - They are super thin and tiny. The brow pencils or gels won’t work because they never match...The microblading and shading made my brows incredibly beautiful. This is truly artistry. Check out Sydney’s work at @ink_sydneyjaccarya #microblading#microbladingeyebrows#permenantmakeup #beautytips

My fall hair color by @dphue @aleksey_hair The hair never looked so softened and glowy. Its GLOSS+ treatment is amazing for hair color retouching. The medium brown looks perfect for the upcoming season. More highlights of the hair treatment on my Instagram Story. 🔆#dphuehouse #haircolorgoals#fallhaircolor #brunettehair

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Olay. The opinions and text are all mine.
When I turned 30, I started to notice that my skin was not as good as before - I started to have fine lines, my skin lost some elasticity and it took more time to heal the breakouts. Then I spent more time and effort on my skincare. I tried a lot of different brands and tools but the results were not so satisfactory.
This time I took the 28 Day Challenge with Olay and I am totally happy with my skin. The two products that I have been using are Regenerist Micro Sculpting Cream and Ultimate Eye Cream. I used them in the morning and before bed. I took the creams with me when I was traveling.
Here are what happened in the 28 days.
My skin was not very bad but it looked obviously dull and uneven. I had been to a few music festivals. With intensive sun exposure and lots of makeup, the pores on my cheeks and nose were visible. I also had some puffiness and darkness under my eyes - so annoying. I had some acne here and there.
My skin tone is brightened and looks more even than before. Olay products restored the firmness of my contour and the appearance of the skin is overall more youthful and healthy. The cream magically minimized my pores. 90% of my problems are fixed within a month. I am so happy with the result.
If you have combination skin like me, you will love this Regenerist Micro Sculpting Cream from Olay. Right after I apply the cream on my face, I feel so hydrated and moisturized without any oil. Some fine lines go away immediately. I can still do my makeup after I use this cream. The cream is easily absorbed.
This eye cream makes my skin under eyes much cleaner. After 28 days, you can clearly see less puffiness or darkness under my eyes. I can save my concealers when I apply makeup :) This set has become my skincare care routine.
Olay Regenerist Micro Sculpting Cream and Ultimate Eye Cream are now available at Target. Find them here.
Hey everyone, I am so excited to share with you guys my experience at the Asian Pacific American Heritage Month Celebration at Macy’s Santa Anita yesterday. This was my first time joining this beauty and culture event at Macy’s but I have to say that this was one of the best beauty events for Asian community that I have ever attended.
When I have good skin, I enjoy good mood.
When I turned 30 last year, I started to observe some minor dark spots under my eyes, which totally freaked me out over this new age bracket. I didn't realize that I had been skipping sunscreen for outdoor time or used any unique products to prevent or treat the potential hyperpigmentation. Not until I met Dr. Heather, the founder of Specific Beauty, I started this amazing Specific Beauty journey to fight against aging and multi-hues.
This month I collaborated with Bobbi Brown for its new skin long-wear weightless foundation. I am so obsessed with this foundation - it's perfect for a natural look yet it's full coverage. I tried three colors - Natural, Natural Tan and Golden Natural. My best-matched shade is 4 Natural.
Candle is never a bad idea for gifting her. I like to light candle before bed, in bath or whenever I feel like it. This vanilla and hemlock holiday candle from The Starling Project (@starlingproject) became my new favoriate.
