A couple of weeks ago, I mentioned in this post that I was going to begin acne laser treatments that consisted of 6 sessions. The time has come, and I’m so happy to share the end results with you.

As you can tell from the first two photos shown above (not edited), I had acne and blemishes along my jawline. I was very self conscious about it. I tried endless skincare products, even changed my skincare regimen a few times, but nothing seemed to work. Instead, it left me feeling very frustrated and helpless. I never suffered from acne growing up, so I was so confused. Then I realized it was “adult acne” (insert eye-rolling emoji here).

As a blogger, I’m always on camera and meeting new people at events, so suffering from adult acne made me feel very insecure. There were times when I would even try to hide my face. I’d skip out on attending events just because I didn’t want anyone to see my skin.

I decided to contact Dr. Alex at AE Skin, and discuss my concerns and see what he could recommend. That’s when he suggested I’d try acne laser, which was a 3-step process: a blue light, red light and infrared light, that consisted of 6 sessions.

I was a bit nervous at first because I wasn’t sure what to expect. Was it going to be painful? Would I really see results? What if it didn’t help improve my skin? I had so many questions. Luckily, Dr. Alex and his amazing staff answered all of my questions, and addressed my concerns.

It was not painful. They actually numb your face so you don’t feel a thing.

As you can see in the last two photos above (not edited), there is a huge difference from the photos taken before my treatments. My skin feels smoother, brighter, healthier, most importantly my skin has cleared up significantly.

I feel more confident than ever. Even feel more comfortable wearing less makeup – and being on social media without makeup at all, which is the best feeling in the world. George has even noticed a difference, and has mentioned that my skin is glowing (insert blushing emoji here).

I would highly recommend scheduling a consultation with Dr. Alex if you have any concerns with acne. I am beyond happy with my results. My only regret is that I didn’t begin these treatments sooner.

Thank you to Dr. Alex and his incredible staff who made this experience so amazing and made me feel comfortable during every session. My skin feels and looks better than ever!

For those of you who follow me on Instagram, you know that I have been receiving acne laser treatments from AE Skin. I’ve never had issues with acne before until recently. I noticed my skin was changing and I was getting ‘adult acne’. Dr Alex, suggested the acne facial treatment, which is suppose to help prevent my skin from breaking out, and improve the smoothness and texture of my skin.

I will keep you all updated, and share my experience after my last treatment. If you have any questions, please feel free to comment below or direct message me on Instagram. I’d love to answer any questions you may have.

My Love for Dove

Today I’ve partnered with Simply Stylist and Dove to talk about Dove Dry Spray, which is an antiperspirant that protects from perspiration and odor for 48 hours. That’s right – 48 hours! I know, I know. You’ll want to keep reading (trust me).

Before Dove Dry Spray came into my life, I was using an ordinary deodorant that I had to reapply throughout the day. In fact, I would carry my deodorant stick with me. It was such an inconvenience, especially for the on-the-go gal that I am. It is definitely a travel necessity as well.

I’ve only been using the Dove Dry Spray for a few days now and it has quickly become my new favorite deodorant. I received two different deodorants to try. I’ve been using the dry spray for sensitive skin. It has a soft and clean scent to it, which I absolutely love. The best part about this Dove Dry Spray is that it doesn’t leave behind any residue, and it goes on instantly dry, while keeping my skin moisturized. The clear tone variant has the exact same benefits, and also helps restore skin to its natural tone.

With my busy schedule, this Dove Dry Spray has worked wonders for me. Dove Dry Spray sure is giving my old deodorant stick a run for its money. Out with the old, in with the new.

Today, I’m talking about my thoughts on Restylane® Lyft and Restylane® Silk. It’s something completely off what I normally talked about on my blog but since I do have a section for beauty and this technically falls under that category, I wanted to share my thoughts about Restylane® that I feel is important people know about. When I first heard about it, I’ll be honest; I was a bit apprehensive about it. I’m not against people getting procedures done to enhance a specific part of their face; however, my main concern is making sure it is 100% safe.

I was really bummed out that I wasn’t able to make the event Galderma hosted a few weeks ago, as I am truly fascinated on how Restylane® works. I wanted to learn more information.

For those of you who are not familiar with Restylane®, here’s a quick bio:

Restylane® Silk is the first FDA-approved product specifically designed for lip enhancement and the smoothing of wrinkles around the mouth in patients 21 years and older. Restylane® Silk is designed to provide precise lip shaping and line control, resulting in silkier, smoother lips and natural-looking results.

Restylane® Lyft is FDA-approved and designed for cheek augmentation and the correction of age-related, mid face contour deficiencies in patients over the age of 21. Over the course of time, the natural fat surrounding the cheeks begin to deteriorate, resulting in a reduction of volume, sagging skin and more prominent wrinkles. Through this nonsurgical injection, Restylane® Lyft is specifically designed to add fullness to the cheeks and mid face area, which can result in a natural-looking appearance.

After doing my research on Restylane®, I discovered that each treatment is a clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid. It is a natural way to keep your skin looking as young as possible without going under the knife. It is safe, and definitely the product I would trust if I ever were considering getting a procedure done.

I thought I’d start the first day of a new month with a new beauty blog post.  I’m sharing the exact brushes I use to apply my makeup with.

I’ve been using Sigma Beauty brushes for years now, and when new brushes were delivered to my doorstep, I was beyond excited. I especially couldn’t wait to use the highlighter and contouring brushes.

Here are the steps-by-step on how I apply my foundation and powder:

  • The very first step before applying my foundation, I use a sunscreen moisturizer and an eye cream. I let it sit for a few second.
  • I then apply my foundation with the 3DHD Kabuki brush, which is AMAZING. This brush is a multifunctional brush allowing you to get all the curves, creases and angles on your face.
  • I then apply my powder with the Duo Fibre Powder/Blush brush. I love this brush because it allows me to be able to apply my powder as lightly as I’d like to.
  • Next step, is the contouring. I use the Large Angled Contour – F40 brush on my cheekbones, along the side of my eyebrows, outer edges of my forehead and jaw line. I also use the Tapered Face – F25 brush to blend in the product.
  • Followed by the Small Contour – F05 brush to contour around my nose and any smaller areas.
  • Then comes the highlighting part. I use the Tapered Highlighter – F35 brush to highlight desired areas on my face. I normally like to brighten up my cheekbones, the bridge of my nose, cupid’s bow, inner corners of my eyes, as well as my chin and in between my brows.
  • The very last step is the setting powder, which I usually use the Duo Fibre Powder/Blush brush.

All product are linked above. Be sure to follow me on Instagram @melrodstyle, as I’ll be sharing more beauty posts soon.

Today I’m sharing a few new skin products I’m currently using on my skin that I am positive you will love just as much as I do.

I recently began using Beauti Control skin care and so far so good. I start by using their purifying cleansing gel, followed by the exfoliating polish, which by the way – feels amazing.

To wake up my tired skin in the mornings, I use the Origins refreshing scrub cleanser. It really does give you a boost of energy.

Once a week or when needed, I like to use the active charcoal mask to clear my pores.

I’m really loving the anti-aging power serum from Origins, which I use in the morning and night. It helps prevent any wrinkles and defined lines.

The Visage De Layla amino-lift is meant to really dig deep into your skin to minimize any facial expression lines and wrinkles while improving skin firmness. After using the amino-lift, I use the line filler, which is an intensive serum that blurs and vanishes any existing wrinkles. Although I’ve only used it a couple of times, I’m loving the results so far because everyone knows that wrinkles are not welcomed on our clothing just as much as they’re not on our skin. Not that I have any wrinkles but if there’s anything I can use from preventing any, then I’ll take it!

The mega-mushroom eye serum is a must have for me, which I use in the morning and night. It reduces the appearance of under eye puffiness and helps relieve dark circles.

I like to switch up my moisturizers and creams so right now I’m using the defend & restore moisture lotion. It feels really silky and smooth and not too oily, which is perfect for my oily skin.

What are you currently using on your skin? Share! I’ve love to hear your beauty routine.
