Forty one to be precise.
When we were teens slathering on orange goop called Ban De Soleil and baking in the sun all day we had no idea one day it would catch up with us. All of a sudden the pillow marks don't disappear as quickly in the morning, the wrinkles that used to be cute when you smiled stick, and new freckles and dark spots start surfacing on your face. Where is the rewind button? If only we could go back and tuck under the umbrella and slather on the spf 30+. It seems hopeless but don't give up...you don't have to give up on your youthful skin...it just takes a bit of effort and product magic to fight with you.
Now...I am not a high maintenance type of girl normally. I can't do the five step routine, I do cleanse and moisturize and do sunscreen religiously though. Usually it's a simple cleanser with my beloved Norwex face cloth that I swear just sucks off my eye makeup and washes clean and stays fresh in mysterious ways. I have written about them if you are curious and those who believed me and tried them sent wonderful thank you comments. I never fib ya friends.
Take the Norwex button on the left sidebar to see the whole line.
Moisturizer for a while was just whipped coconut oil with lavender oil added, some eye cream and lip balm....it was working fine and was inexpensive but I gotta say I wasn't looking any younger. Then a friend told me I HAD to try what she had found and told me three other friends who believed in it so deeply they were selling it. Now we all try our hand at multi-level marketing at some point or fall for a home party product but this friend who was sharing her find is a no bullshit kinda lady. She tells it like it is and I can always count on her to be frank and true in her words. The other ladies were also no fuss friends who I really respected and I saw their before & after images, so I gave it a go.
Read on to learn my new little anti-aging secret...
The first night we were at her cabin and I tried the Nucerity Body Silk on my hands and face and loved how it felt and worked...no fuss, it's clear and unscented and just good stuff.
You can also use it on your hair ends or do a Body Silk blowout. Tanya can tell ya all about it on her page...she adores this stuff.
Then she gave me a masque to try that is the Skincerity signature product. It reminded me or roll on deodorant...and I have to be completely honest the scent freaked me out a little at first. It has a nail polish remover smell at first. It dries almost instantly due to the natural acetone that gives it that smell. It doesn't burn or sting, it's cool on the skin and you sleep with the light film on your skin. Now in the morning it was lightly peeling off on some parts so it's not a sleeping with the new boyfriend type of product. It's I wear a night guard to stop clenching my teeth and might sometimes look like a lizard shedding my skin in the morning in the name of making my skin look ten years younger type of reality. It's not that bad.
Now, that first night I was hesitant but in the morning I was so shocked how replenished my skin felt despite my sleepless nights. It felt a little plumped up and so smooth after I rinsed away the masque. I was excited but decided to try the whole line for a couple months before actually sharing to ensure it was the real deal. That was last November and now we are into February and I am loving the whole line, I have noticed changes and my skin is better than it has been in a long while.
Here is how it works according to the webpage...
How Skincerity® Works
Skincerity® is an undeniably unique product in the cosmetic industry. The cornerstone science of Skincerity® is a revolutionary breathable polymer skin barrier originally developed from research grants* as a delivery system to both deliver and increase the effectiveness of topical medications. As a side effect, patients began seeing remarkable improvement in overall skin health where the barrier was used.
With topical medications removed, the barrier technology was adapted for the cosmetic industry into Skincerity®, a breathable masque that creates an amazingly healthy climate for the skin to rehydrate and rejuvenate itself. Although Skincerity® infuses grape seed oil and Vitamin E into the skin as superb antioxidants, the true magic is in its patented Breathable Barrier® technology that performs like no other barrier technology.
Skincerity® is simply rolled onto the skin as a liquid at bedtime. It cleans the skin and flash dries in seconds to form a flexible, micro-porous masque. This masque remains on the skin for hours, protects the skin’s moisture barrier, and enables the skin to rehydrate by holding in the body’s natural moisture throughout the night, resulting in more supple, hydrated, and smoother skin.
At the same time, the barrier allows essential oxygen to penetrate the masque to reach the skin through breathing holes – tiny holes large enough for oxygen molecules to reach the skin, yet small enough to hold in the larger moisture particles. Skincerity® also serves as an amplifier for other products, allowing rejuvenating agents, such as antioxidants or moisturizers, to remain on the skin longer and not rub off onto clothes or bedding, ultimately making them more effective. Simply apply your favorite products, allow to dry, and top off with Skincerity for optimal results.
Unlike many cosmetic products, Skincerity® does not clog pores and does not irritate the skin. Removing Skincerity® in the morning provides gentle exfoliation that reveals brighter, fresher-looking skin.
I also have become a devoted user of the Eye Effects 3
It's a simple serum in a plain bottle that just does what it is meant too...tackle eye wrinkles and darkness. I also use it around my lips to fight those nasty wrinkles.
Last but not least I have to say I am FREAKING OUT about this latest product that Tanya introduced me to, the Peptide Plus Anti-Aging Moisturizer...
No need for night cream and day cream and other concoctions...this simple, unscented moisturizer that does it all. It tackles the worst dryness and is light and fresh...I adore it. A little bit does your face and neck and feels wonderful.

So, I have to say I am not exactly looking twenty again but my skin feels more tight and fresh and I have noticed a huge difference in some pigmentation I had on my forehead from the sun and also in hormonal breakouts that I was not at all impressed with. I can't really say anything else but share my experience, I hope if you try it you will love it too. They are having amazing success with lots of skin conditions and tightening all skin, even stretched out post baby skin... watch Tanya's facebook page for the latest findings as more and more people discover Skincerity. I am grateful for this smart friend for sharing her secret and am happy to spread the word now that I have given it a nice long trial run and have seen it work for me.
