A Matter of Perspective

So I’ve been thinking about this a lot lately. 

Hmmm

Yes, I use and sell cosmetics and skincare that is anti-ageing. 

However I’ve changed the way I see what I deem “anti-ageing”.
It’s term for a byproduct of renewing your skin by using our products.

I recently had my first ever facial. I have acne scarring, expression lines, and large pores. That’s all I see, that’s what I cover up.

This me from August 2017. Wow.

I was surprised, however, to hear the aesthetician tell me my skin was in great condition. She saw past what I focus on. She could see it’s hydrated, glowing, and healing from the acne. 

Who am I even?! 26/6/2019

What I’m using is actually working. 

It’s renewing my skin. 

Just skincare. I’m G L O W I N G ! 21/6/19

The texture of my skin overall has improved, minimal fine lines, and did I mention it glows? 

I’m about to turn 39!

SenePlex Complex is the real deal. 

Sure, I could throw a bunch of stats at you from independent lab tests on women of all ages over eight weeks (or you could just read about it here), but for me seeing is believing. Feeling is believing. 

On a daily basis, I use in the morning:

  • Body Wash as my facial cleanser (yes I do! I’m oily skinned)
  • Climate Control
  • Brightening Multivitamin Treatment
  • Anti-Wrinkle Treatment
  • Colour Correcting Tinted Moisturizer

In the evening I use:

  • Fooops Makeup Remover
  • Body Wash as my facial cleanser (yes I do! I’m oily skinned)
  • Climate Control
  • Brightening Multivitamin Treatment
  • Anti-Wrinkle Treatment
  • Normal to Oily Evening Moisturizer
  • Eye Cream

I look forward to my routine. It’s me time.

So, I prefer to refer to our skincare and cosmetics as skin renewing rather than anti-ageing. 

Does your current skincare and cosmetics do that? I’ll wait…

Kicking It Old School

It works. It actually, really works.

Shea Butter Body Cream

What am I talking about? Using Shea Butter Body Cream to remove makeup. Yes. It’s an old school method but it works!

I mentioned it previously how Joni, our founder and CEO, uses this method to remove her makeup. I was a little skeptical at first, especially about removing our very waterproof mascara. Boy, was I wrong!

It removes EVERYTHING. This is now my go to method of removing makeup. I need to invest in more wash cloths for wiping the cream off my face haha.

So, not only am I cleansing my face, I’m moisturising it and massaging it, too.

I place a hot, damp wash cloth on my face for a few seconds and then wipe gently. Rinse and repeat until the Shea Butter Body Cream has been removed.

My current nighttime routine includes the Brightening Multi-Vitamin Treatment, followed by Nangai oil and then the evening moisturizer. And then hopefully at least 4 hours of sleep haha.

In other news, I’ve kicked off my SeneBlends, that’s the SeneGence makeup artistry certification. I need to practice 58 different techniques on 58 different faces. 5 down, 53 to go and I’m excited! I’m having a lot of fun helping women look good and feel great and learning at the same time. So, if you’re in Melbourne, I may call on you for your beautiful face! I’m getting better at apply eyeliner but it still needs some work. Same goes for mascara; OMG that’s so hard to do!

I’ve realised that I need a proper, portable makeup chair or else my back will get angry. Thankfully, I have a great osteopath to keep me tuned up hehe

On a personal note, I’ve been looking at getting into powerlifting! I’m not one for a conventional gym (thanks anxiety!). I am predisposed to osteoporosis and need to build up my bone density and of course, get my strength back. I was considering pilates for a while but I need to build up my muscles again and lose inches while I’m at it. Wish me luck it happens and I stick to it!
