I’m sharing #Shortlist in my life as part of a Shortlist sponsored series for Socialstars.
No surprise, I'm chatting about my latest skincare experience, you know, I am a freak about taking care of my skin & maintaining a youthful glow!

You can't reverse the signs of aging but you can noticeably delay and avoid damage. In any situation, it's always better to be proactive rather than reactive.

Let's chat about my new beauty routine, by Shortlist.

Wether it's the food I eat (we'll get into food another time), or the products I use on my face, I always look at the ingredients on any type of packaging. Especially, the NUMBER of ingredients.

The less, the better.

Let me break it down for you...

Skin is the largest and most important organ in your body. I bet you didn't think of your skin as a vital organ?

It literally keeps you together, protects our internal organs from microbes and harmful elements etc. You can't live without it.

Maybe now you understand why I'm so crazy about protecting mine?
When I was introduced to the Shortlist skincare system, I knew I had to try it. Like it's name explains, there are only a few key ingredients in the products. The average skincare product has over 30 ingredients and it's usually stuff you don't want anywhere near your face. Less is more!

They are made of simple, zero filler formulas that contain NO parabens, sulfates, colorants, fragrances, or mineral oils. Best of all, Shortlist is designed for ALL skin types and ethnicities.

If you want to repair your skin from existing damage or slow down and prevent aging (hello, who doesn't) this is where it's at.
The Shortlist skincare system includes a Serum and Cream that are potent alone, but even more powerful when paired together.

The Serum moisturizes to repair dry and damaged skin. Over time, skin cells are energized with moisture to make skin act and feel younger by strengthening skin’s moisture barrier.

One of the main ingredients is Hyaluronic Acid (a moisturizing ingredient that can hold more than 1000 times its weight in water). I've talked about Hyaluronic Acid like ten million times, it's always a main part of my skin routine.

The Pro-retinol cream contains only 9 ingredients and rejuvenates skin by increasing surface cell turnover. Over time, it noticeably diminishes the look of fine lines and wrinkles by moisturizing the surface, which encourages cellular repair and reverses the visible signs of aging.
I'm not doing any laser or sun-sensitive procedures (it's too risky doing chemical peels, IPL lasers, PRP - anything I need to be out of the sun for) this summer so I am really focused on skincare products that are going to protect and rejuvenate my skin. I'll fill you in next month on how my skin is doing!
