    Skin matters. Love your skin!  


    The following is a sponsored post in partnership with Brevena.  All opinions are 100% my own


    I don’t know about you, but I am so weary of face products that claim to be the holy grail, and I mainly only review products that I believe in. With BREVENA, The Skin Care Experts, they have the numbers to back up their success. There is a proven solution where in clinical studies, 100 percent of its users realized an improvement in skin texture/roughness; improvement in skin firmness/elasticity; and overall moisturization of the skin.

    At BREVENA, their products are clinically proven. They were developed side by side with scientists in a medical setting and originally used in burn and wound applications. They have been dermatologist tested and endorsed by surgeons and nurses. Their non-comedogenic products have been in the medical burn arena for over twenty years. Howeber, they have recently transitioned with the Brevena  brand into the consumer luxury skin care market beginning in 2015.

Macro β Complex® is a powerful, proprietary ingredient effortlessly restores dry, rough, aging and environmentally damaged skin leaving your skin soft, healthy and luminous

    So what exactly is Macro β Complex®?   It’s a ground-breaking technology begins with oat beta glucan, a powerful botanical element found in the cell wall of an oat. Through BREVENA’s proprietary purification process, oat beta glucan is transformed into the healing powerhouse known as, Macro B Complex®. This technology has been trusted by doctors and plastic surgeons for over 20 years to successfully treat traumatized skin in burn centers nationwide. The unique, cellular friendly properties of Macro B Complex make it the ideal formula to calm sensitive skin, replenish severely dry skin, and soothe irritation while protecting skin from future damage and environmental age accelerators. It was from this discovery that the BREVENA line of skin care products were born, bringing the power of Macro B Technology® to consumers everywhere.

    Researchers agree. They consider Macro B Complex® to be instrumental in the fight against daily environmental assaults such as pollution, free radicals and UV damage. It provides the essential moisture and protection necessary to minimize the aging process and maintain the health of your skin.

    Often the start of a new year, predictions in varying market categories are made. From top diets for the New Year, to new workout trends, to bucket list travel destinations. Let’s not forget the beauty marketplace. With the start of 2019, BREVENA Laboratories’ Skin Expert and Advanced Practice Esthetician Susannah Courteau is already seeing a few skin care trends that can help you ensure your healthiest skin ever.

    Top 3 2019 Skin Care Trends: 

    1.   Replenishing Oils:  The use of replenishing oils in skin care has grown significantly in the past year.  I see this trend not only continuing but growing significantly in 2019.  We grew up hearing “fat free” food was the gold standard and up till recently, the same thing has been propagated in skincare. Thankfully we’ve learned that fat doesn’t actually make you fat (thank you avocados), and in skincare the right oils aren’t greasy and can actually help breakouts. There are a multitude of emollients and fat-based ingredients for the skin that are absolutely phenomenal.  They provide not only the right amount of hydration but anti-inflammatory effects as well that support the skins barrier function. Thank you to science, for putting the spotlight on the proper way to hydrate!
    2.   Blue Light Awareness: Technology is now part of our day to day existence and while we love our apps, they can have a negative effect on our skin.  Thankfully, awareness is growing about the many harmful effects that blue light can have on our bodies including the long-term damaging effects it can have on our skin.  I predict that the role of antioxidants and reparative ingredients in skin care will take on an elevated position in 2019.
    3.   Sheet Masks:  This is a current trend that I see increasing in the coming year.  I like to think that this trend is a reflection of the changing mindset in our society around self-care.  Multitasking has its limits and its hazards. Thankfully, we are beginning to realize the importance of self-care by slowing down and taking time for ourselves to relax and rebalance.  Treating your skin with something special like a mask or scrub is the perfect, healthy way to accomplish this, and it feels amazing!  Trade that last email for a hydrating mask instead.  I promise, you won’t regret it✔️.

    “As you continue to evolve your own wellness regimen, consider these predictions and consider adding even just one of these into your routine to help you jump start a healthier you,” Susannah advises. 

    Final thoughts
    Brevena is a good product. Easy to use, and a worthy investment. I love that they are cruelty-free and do not test on animals.
