Natural and Organic Skincare from LimeLife by Alcone!!!! SO AMAZING!

January 17, 2017
I have always been into nutrition. As a kid when people asked me what I wanted to be I always said "nutritionist". I haven't always taken the best care of myself but I was given a huge motivator to get healthy recently (which I will blog about another time). Health is not just about what you put in your body but also what you put on your skin. Skincare absorbs into your skin and into your body. Thats what really drove me to start using LimeLife by Alcone and sharing my experience with others. I recently started using the LimeLife by Alcone Skincare and I am now totally hooked. My skin is glowing and the bumps I've had the hardest time of getting rid of on my forehead are going away! Here's a picture after just a week of using the skincare. Amazing natural and organic skincare that really works!!!

Some helpful tips to prepare your skin before your big day or special event!

July 13, 2016

A week before your wedding or special event, you do not want to use any harsh exfoliating products such as retinol, salicylic acid, or any facial scrubs to minimize redness, sensitivity, or peeling that may be present. I do highly recommend Sex Apeel from Sonia Rosseli, it is an incredible product that you can use the week of your wedding and even on your wedding day for immediate results. Brighter, softer, and smoother looking skin from head to toe. I am also obsessed with Water Balm...
