Genny's Skincare Routine

Thank you for watching my skincare routine on our instastories today, it was amateur hour! I have had a skincare routine since I was 16rys old starting the the 3-step Clinique, it has since them evolved over the years. I am now 41yrs old, I promise people I meet that my good skin comes from having a very consistent routine.

Here is my routine and products I love, I am listing in use order:

Cleanser: I rotate between CerVe Foaming Cleanser $14.99 and Pixi Glow Mud Cleanser $18

Lotion P50 by Biologique Recherche $67 Exfoliates, Hydrates, and Balances the pH of the skin, it's a prep step before any skincare. I dab this product with my fingers over my face. This bottle will has lasted my 8 months and still got lots in it!

Serum is important to any skincare routine, this is your preventative to fine lines and restores your skin cells!  I rotate the week between 3 serums. I used to use the same serum til it ran out but I believe your skin becomes complacent so this keeps your skin alive!

  1. SkinCeuticals: C Ferulic Acid $164 I have used this product on & off since I was 28yrs old! Vitamins C & E for antioxidant properties Blended with Ferulic Acid to maximize its antioxidant effectiveness super skin protection from environmental damage prevents premature aging signs

  2. Sérum Matriciel Visage by Biologique Recherché $152 Tightens the Features and Restores the Structure and Volume of the Face

  3. Dr Dennis Gross Ferulic + Retinol Brightening Solution $88 fights free radicals to firm and smooth fine lines, wrinkles and uneven skin tone. 

Eyecream: Drunken Elephant Multivitamin Eye Cream $64

Moisturiser with SPF 30 Daylight Moisturiser $40.50 I use without tint but comes with various tint colors.

I never normally wear make-up during the day. If I am working or have a lunch. I have make-up products I love and use:

Under Eye Concealer: THIS IS A MUST FOR ME! IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Concealing $28

Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Flawless Filter $55 is amazing, gives you a natural glow. So light and not heavy at all! I am obsessed!

We would love to know what products you love & would recommend ?

Tuesday

What did I do on a Tuesday that was new? Worked out, got stretched, got a tattoo, and had root canal.

Workout: I am obsessed with instructor Armond Jordan, I love his JoyCircuit class, it is a combination of weights, cardio and abs. The class never gets easy, he really thinks about about his workout and he is already changing my body! I love his energy and always has a good playlist! The class is around $26 when you purchase a class package.

Stretch: The Stretch is tiny after each workout and do I foam roll at home - NO!  I was recommended LYMBR so I booked a 30 min stretch through their website. It was amazing, they simply ask you your workout routine and any problem areas, Michael completely stretch we out!! My spine feels longer, my hips are always tight they feel brand new! It was incredible so my goal is to go once a week! New client introductory stretch $35 for 30mins. They have locations throughout the US, for the NYC girls their is a location in Tribeca.

Tattoo: The past 8 months I have been pining for a star design on the side of my wrist. I wanted 5 stars to represent the loves in my life: Hubby; Christopher, Kids; Olivia & Max and Dogs; Archie & Teddy. I told no one, but I was worried that I would regret doing it! I got in contact with an amazing tattoo artist Chris Fort at Big Dreams Studio Stamford. He is beyond busy and travels but so worth the wait. I sent him my inspiration photos in advance. On the day we stenciled two sizes and moved it around the side of the wrist til I was happy! Then boom ink was put one, it did not hurt and he was awesome no nonsense guy! I highly recommend him! I text Christopher a photo of the tattoo with meaning, he was in shock but loves it!! I love my tattoo!

Root Canal: Not ideal but Dr Alexandra Byrne was amazing, the nicest lady ever and huge dog lover, she has a Wheaten Terrier called Louis! Total pain free and effortless Root Canal, I even took a nap during the procedure! I was there for 2hrs, she works with your insurance. I could not recommend her enough. Your dentist might recommend someone else but insist you want to see Dr Alexander Byrne if you live in CT!

I purchased one dress from Free People because I am obsessed with their spring/summer collection! Donna Maxi Dress $98! I can't wait to receive it!

Badass Tuesday. What will Wednesday bring.....?

Thanks for reading

LYMBR Stretch with Michael Eaton

Soul Annex

I am a huge fitness lover, it clears my mind

My workout over the years has evolved. When I was in the city I was married to various workouts in particular Soul Cycle - I would sign up Monday 12pm to get into my favorite instructors classes (who are still my favs) Stacey, Janet & Laurie. Now I am in the beautiful burbs of Westport, CT I have a varied workout routine but I still love my NYC and often go in to see friends, bounce around and squeeze in a workout! 

Tonight I took my first SoulAnnex class, still part of the Soul Community. I met my girlfriends and we took a class called Torch'd. First you are not on a bike instead you are in a room that has incredible lighting. We were led by celebrity trainer Issac. We MOVED + danced for our cardio, we DEFINED with free weights and ALIGNED all our muscles and my rather weak core with our own body resistance! 

Isaac's energy was electrifying and his playlist helped us push our workout to another level.  It was hard but I felt amazing after and it woke up muscles that had not been used in a while. 

If you live in NYC or are visiting you have to try SoulAnnex, I can't wait to hear your experience 

Soul Annex is located at 32 W 18th St. in Manhattan

Skincare Routine

I am a big believer in a daily beauty routine. I started my first skincare routine at 15yrs old it was Clinique 3 step, it has evolved as I got older. I am 39yrs old and never had any work done, no botox or fillers (yet)!

Here is my daily skin care routine and my favorite products, I use them in this order:

Cleanser: Love daily face wash La Roche Posay Purifying Foam Cleanser $14.99 you could only get it from France but finally you buy in the US!

Toner: BeautyCounter Rosewater Toner spray: This is norishing, hydrating a reasonable $35

Serum: SkinCeuticals CE Ferulic Acid: This is my preventive, I am die hard loyal CE Ferulic Acid fan. It is $165 but it lasts 6months and I only use 2 drops every morning all over my face. I always think about trying something else but I honestly adore this product that has given me youthful skin it is currently on sale for $84.99 which never happens!

I recently added a correct serum SkinCeuticals Hyaluronic Acid Intensifier this is $98 and  I use 2 drop after the CE Ferulic Acid, this amplify skin’s hyaluronic acid levels  visible appearance of firmness, smoothness, and facial plumpness. 

Eye cream: I really research eye creams and love Chantecaille Stress Repair Concentrate it awakens my eye area deflates puffiness and smooths fine lines and wrinkles!

Moisturiser: I love Eve Lom Brightening Cream, I received a sample from Space NK and loved it!

 SPF: I never walk out of the door without SPF on my face, I apply after my moisturizer and I am currently using Bobbi Brown Protective SPF 50 Face Base

If I go to the gym in the morning I only cleanse and moisturizer after the gym I do my daily skincare routine.

I hope you found this useful.

Inner Light

My friend highly recommended Inner Light. I am big fan of trying and discovering things to improve my wellbeing. We speed through life and often forget to take time to ourselves. Moms might do a 50minute workout but then we are zooming around, I am still learning how to juggle Mom & Wife life as I am certainly not a natural!

Inner light has individual full-spectrum Infrared Saunas detoxify the body with light. Full Spectrum infrared therapy saunas detoxify your body, helps with anti-aging, it gets deep into your muscles and tissues and helps loosen muscles! The whole experience rejuvenates your body almost a reset that we all need.

I highly recommend Inner Light, the space is truly divine with a tranquil boutique selling beautiful natural, toxin-free products. I cannot wait to return.
