How to Find Comfort in Your Own Skin

What is your personal skin story?


Everyone has a story.  And when it comes to our appearance, it can be a journey to find comfort in our own skin.  Our genetics, food, outer influences; these all contribute to how we feel – both inside and out.

I’ve been very blessed in my life, in more than ways than one. Growing up as a child and even to this day, I have my insecurities. But one particular area that always keeps me feeling confident is my skin. Like most women, time to time I get very typical breakouts, usually due to stress, eating off diet, or when it’s “that time of the month”.  But I’ve never had an on going issue with acne or other skincare concerns. And for that, I am very fortunate.

I have friends and family that on a daily basis tell me how they just don’t feel comfortable in their own skin – literally. They struggle with finding the right products, treatment, and care specific to their needs.  Even though I am someone who can’t complain when I get a pimple or blemish, I still love the feeling of walking out of the house without makeup. To be proud of natural beauty being bare faced, without any makeup.

Being from San Diego, California, a day didn’t go by where I wasn’t running, playing or hanging out in the sunshine. Although, as I’ve grown older, I realize how extremely important it is to wear sunscreen.  Vitamin D is important for the body, but skin cancer is a very serious disease that we all need to be aware of.

I used to buy certain products like face wash and moisturizer based off of what my mom or friends used. But now, I have a greater understanding of using a specific skincare regimen to protect and moisturize my face, reduce aging, wrinkles and preserve my natural skin.

Recently, I had an opportunity to try three different L’Oreal Paris RevitaLift™ products ­– RevitaLift™ Triple Power™ Deep-Acting Moisturizer, RevitaLift™ Volume Filler™ and RevitaLift™ Anti-Wrinkle + Firming Cream. Their mission of this line is to present the next generation of skincare,

As someone who is kind of a product junkie as it is, I am always thrilled to try new products that help me educate myself and invest in the very best products to preserve my beauty whether trying to prevent conceal, reverse and or rejuvenate.


I’ve been using L’Oreal Paris RevitaLift™ products for 3 weeks now and have definitely seen a difference. With RevitaLift™ Volume Filler™ Eye Treatment, I set out to repair wrinkles, reduce bags and lift eye area.  Since I tend to work unconventional hours, this type of product is a must-have in my daily skin routine. I am happy to see that just after 3 weeks, the texture around my eyes appears to be smoother and the skin tone is more even.


I really like the RevitaLift™ Anti-Wrinkle + Firming Cream because it has SPF 18 already ingratiated into it and it does not leave your skin feeling greasy or oily. It is a unique daily moisturizer with broad-spectrum UVA/UVB SPF 18 sunscreen protection and is meant to deliver smoother, firmer skin in just 4 weeks.  Because it is fortified with Pro-Retinol A and Stimuplex, Revitalift Anti-wrinkle + Firming works to increase cell turnover, reduce wrinkles, firm skin, and provide 24-hour hydration.


Lastly, I enjoyed using the RevitaLift Triple Power™ as part of my nighttime routine. This powerful, luxurious moisturizer goes beyond a simple anti-aging cream to address 3 dimensions that visibly age skin: repair wrinkles, refirm contours, and redensify skin. It kept my skin feeling soft and moisturized throughout the might and into the morning.
