Microneedling for the third time/ Where did I buy those pearl earrings?

Beauty

 

I’m not sure what to talk about first.  Where I got my earrings or a skin update after getting Microneedling done for the third time!  I’m happy to talk about both subjects haha.

The biggest things Microneedling has done for me is the improvement and the change in my skin texture.  I saw results with Microneedling immediately after my first treatment.  Microneedling is also known for improving acne scars but in my case I had done Chemical peels for so long that I believe that the peels are what helped me the most with the fading of acne scars and discoloration.   Both Chemical Peels and Microneedling will help with the skin tone and improvement of skin texture.   But Microneedling really focuses on collagen production!  I’m turning 30 in a few days and I’m stepping up my game when it comes to taking care of my skin.  As I have mentioned in past posts, my skin always looks it’s best a week or so after any facial treatment.  I love looking closely at a mirror and really appreciate the magic that Microneelding is.  My pores are so tiny and my skin is so smooth I really feel like I’m 18 again haha.  Even my expression lines look better.  A Chemical peel doesn’t do that for me.  But a peel gives me other amazing benefits.  I have the most lovely skin when I alternate between both treatments.  I recommend that you read my first post on Microneedling here.  The post is called “WHAT TO EXPECT DURING AND AFTER A MICRONEEDLING TREATMENT“.

I really wanted post a close up picture so that you can see for your self how amazing this treatment is.  Don’t get me wrong.  I do not have perfect skin and my skin doesn’t always look like this.  But I was  having the most “skin perfect” week soon after my third Microneedling treatment so I had to take a picture!  It takes a while to figure out what your skin needs and what causes bad reactions.  Don’t stress.  I’m here for you.  I’ll post as many skin related posts as I can to help you. Ps:  A lot has to do with you gut!  I talked about this on IG stories yesterday.  Check out the first of many videos to come about gut health and what I have done to improve my complexion.

Now let’s talk about my earrings!  If you guys only knew how often I get asked where I bough them.  I tried my best to remember but I honestly have no idea!  I listed below some options that I thought you guys might like.  These are similar to the pearl earrings I have on in this photo:
