Investing in yourself has always proved to be one of the most valuable ways to spend your time.  It is important to note that every issue does not have a fast fix. A year from now your future self will be thankful you put the time in. If you’re looking to pamper yourself this year check out this must haves! Here are beauty investments to make in your 2018.

Cleanser

La Roche Posay Effaclar Medicated Gel Cleanser- This gel cleanser hails from the ever in style France. If you’re tired of American products which seem to all have the same ingredients give your skin something international. Apply cleanser while you’re in the shower so the steam can open up your pores. Apply in circles with the tips of your fingers and rinse off.
La Roche Posay Effaclar Lotion Astringente- The matching astringent pairs well with the gel cleanser. You can actually feel it tingle and permeate deep within your pores! The smell has a perky scent that wakes me up in the morning.

Mask

Murad Pore-Extractor Pomegranate Masks- Sheets masks are always fun to buy at the store but have you ever seen real differences after using one? I didn’t think so. I’ve always suffered from congestion within my skin. Congestion are chronically clogged pores. It was never full blown acne, but it wasn’t a clear, clean pore either. To combat this I started using Murad’s Pore Extractor Pomegranate Mask. You keep the mask on for up to 10 minutes, then exfoliate off to buff away those problem areas.

Night-time Moisturizer

Embryollise Lait- Creme Concentre- Embryolisse is a cosmeceutical line from France. In tune with the minimalism of France they focus on simplicity with measurable results.

Day- time Primer

Murad Invisiblur Perfecting Shield – Any dermatologist will tell you that the key to anti-aging is early prevention. If you aren’t using a daily moisturizer with SPF you are already working against yourself! This shield has a silky smooth feel that covers the face like a lightweight primer AND has enough sunscreen to protect your skin all day long!

Makeup Remover

2017 was the year of coconut oil! And if it worked as the end all be all for you feel free to skip this recommendation! But for myself and many other women out there, coconut oil can seriously clog your pores and work against your beauty goals! Instead, swap the greasy coconut oil for Tatcha Pure One Step Camellia Cleansing Oil.  Tatcha products are made and formulated in Japan where women have perfected the art of skincare.

Beauty from the Inside Out

Keep in mind that using the greatest products under the sun wont give you the results you’re looking for if your insides aren’t right. Nature Made Biotin is the muscle behind all those hair, skin and nail products that Instagram influencer peddle. Sugar Bear Hair gummies and glorified candies like them are more Biotin than anything else. Skip the middle man and the fluff and get straight to the source! Don’t forget to swap your sodas and juices for water.

Optional- Applicator

Have you been eyeballing a fancy skin cleansing brush but just don’t feel comfortable shelling out three digits for it? Have no fear, Mary Kay’s Skinvigorate Cleansing Brush is the answer you’ve been looking for! I use mine to apply cleansers and remove the Murad pomegranate mask. The brush penetrates deeper than your fingers ever could. And in combination with the right products the results will be noticeable!

Have you used any of these products? What were your results? Was anything on this list also on your list of things to try? Perhaps drop hints to your Sugar Daddy and see if a shopping trip for skincare is in order. What Daddy wouldn’t want his Sugar Baby naturally glowing?
