SKINCARE ADVENT CALENDAR 2023

SKINCARE, TOOLS, AND BEAUTY- WHAT REALLY WORKS?

This series should answer the question I receive most often, “What really works?”

I have created a skincare advent calendar based on my favorites. 

I have a ton of skincare, makeup, and gadgets. Here are my 25 favorite skincare and beauty tools, many of which I’ve been using for over five years. 

For my community members, there are some new treats as well. These are my tried and true favorites I use. I am keeping this calendar PG so all the products are easily found on Amazon in the highlighted links, and promo codes where available.

I’ve categorized the items into: 

-Hydration

-Brightening

-Devices

-Tools

-Beauty

Hydration is critical to glowing skin. Here’s the countdown of my five favorite skin moisturizers.

Hydration 

  • 1 Daiso Mask – The silicon sheet mask cover. This cover locks on top of your sheet mask, allowing for longer hydration since the environment is not actively drying your sheet mask out. You can even use a face cream and lock the mask on top for deep hydration. 
  • 2 COSRX Snail Mask  – The COSRX Snail Mucin Sheet Mask remains my most reordered and used sheet mask to date. The mucin is extremely hydrating and has a ton of serum in a pouch, perfect for pulling down your neck.
  • 3 EasyDew EGF Serum- The Easy Dew EGF serum. This serum features epidermal growth factors to encourage collagen. I typically microneedle with this amazing serum, but it can be applied topically as well.
  • 4 Fulvic Acid Spray – This Fulvic Mineral Mist. I’ve only had it a few weeks, and it’s quickly become my go-to spray. I love how glowy it leaves my skin. It locks in moisture, and it’s great for hair, too.
  • 5 Wander Beauty Undereye Patches  – The Wander Beauty baggage claim eye masks. Not only do they offer great selfies, but the foil lining traps in heat, allowing the serum to penetrate deeper.

DEVICES

I use a lot of skin gadgets to improve my skin at home. Here’s my five favorite devices

  • 1 Dr. Pen M8S Microneedling changed my life, and it all started with the Dr. Pen. I recently bought the new Dr Pen M8S. It has a strong metal build similar to the previous model, but the cartridges and the storage box have been upgraded, which I appreciate.
  • 2 NIRA PRECISON LASER Code: Kaos10 Is the Nira Precision Laser. I’ve used this non-ablative laser for over two years to strengthen the skin around my eyes. It shoots a heated beam into your skin to cause micro trauma for collagen induction and is safe to use daily. It also expedites healing after procedures that create bruises.
  • 3 High Frequency Wand Clinical Nuderma Clinical High Frequency wand. Stimulating my scalp for long, strong hair is a focus, and I use this wand three times per week to encourage stronger hair. This set includes six fusion wands to use all over your body, including treating bacne.
  • 4 Maysama Red LED Panel Code: nkaos10 I recently received the Maysama RED LED panel and was blown away by its power and its new technology. This panel features 660 and 850nm wavelengths and a pulse setting that reduces inflammation a side effective from stagnant LED Light sources.
  • 5 Revive Mini Sonique 10%  Code: Kaos10 I have many skin cleansing devices, and I love the Revive Mini Sonique because it’s inexpensive and features blue and red LED lights. Besides the soothing sonic vibration that deep cleans pores, its simple design also makes pushing in serums simple.

I use a lot of skin gadgets to improve my skin at home. Here are my five favorite Tools

TOOLS

  • 1 DJI Osmo Pocket 3 https://urlgeni.us/amzn/_Xb5qDJIomsmo3 I have tools for video making, and this new DJI Osmo Pocket 3 is killing it! I have all three models, and this version is a huge upgrade. The vertical 3K filming option is incredible for a creator, and the active tracker is the best I’ve ever used. Its small size means it’s always with me for smooth b roll! Honestly, there are so many features and not enough time:)
  • 2 TCA ACID Code: KAOS20 My favorite skin acid is TCA. Over the years, this has become harder to source, but makeup artist choice still offers TCA along with other skin-peeling acids.
  • 3 Disposable 10R Scalpel Blades These are by far my favorite dermaplaning scalpels. These 10R blades have a rounded end perfect for shaving your face. They come individually sanitized, ready for use, and then easy to dispose of.
  • 4 UV Sanitization Box If you microneedle, clip nails, or have other beauty torture devices, you need a UV sanitization box. This one has a lot of space and even has a USB and USBC for charging devices while disinfecting.
  • 5 Laduora LED BEAUTY WAND Kaos15 for 15% LINK The Laduora Wand has been a constant travel companion. It has both red and blue light, heat, and microcurrent, perfect for depuffing on flights. Plus, it’s the size of a pen, perfect for taking anywhere.

BEAUTY

BEAUTY Here’s my five favorite Beauty items.

  • 1 Dolce Glow Spray Tan Light to Med  Code: KIMBERLYPRATT Because I’m very fair, I’ve tested a ton of self-tanners. This Dolce Glow Spray mist is hands down my favorite. I use the Light to Medium formula, and it gives me a quick, natural tan. It’s an aerosol can that mists all over your body and dries super fast. In fact, I spray my body and then throw on my clothes; it’s truly a great product.
  • 2 Donna Karen Cashmere Deodorant I love this deodorant! I was introduced to the Donna Karen Cashmere deodorant 15 years ago, and it is still my favorite. The smell is fabulous, and I feel so luxurious even when I’m applying deodorant.
  • 3 DP HUE Gloss This summer, I thrashed my hair, and I’m noticing the impact now. I recently used this DP HUE gloss to coat my strands in the shower. It was incredible how masking in this formula for 20 minutes made my hair feel so soft and healthy.
  • 4 Brows Benefit Fluff Up Brow Wax I love a big imperfect brow, and this Benefit Fluff Up Brow Wax gives me extra texture, and you can use it to faux laminate your brows. This is different from a brow gel; this is like lash primer; in fact, it might be the exact same formula.
  • 5 Oribe Dry Texture Spray For over a year, the Oribe Dry Texture Spray has been my favorite setting hair spray. It’s not a stronghold, but the smell is everything, and the texture isn’t stiff; like Goldie Locks said, “It’s just right.” In fact, I’m giving this spray at this year’s favorite things party.

Comment “TAN” for 🎥 on the peptides. Do you get a weird rash when you go in the Sun?

My UV allergy began 3 years ago.
It became difficult going outside and on trips where the sun would be intense because my skin would blow up with a blistering itchy rash.

MT2 🎥  https://urlgeni.us/youtube/Melanotan2

#summervibes #backyardpool 

Over the past month I used MELANOTAN 2 to increase my melanin production. This triggered my bodies melanocytes to make more melanin when I went into UV light.

It took me a month to build up this solar protection and now I feel free to go outside without the fear of a massive rash blowing up.

If you want to see the videos on how I used MELANOTAN 2 and how I’m using MELANOTAN 1 comment “TAN” for this videos and blog sent to your DM inbox.

@shred.bathandbeyond cracks me up daily with his gym talk 😂 it’s extremely relatable.
And no, I don’t hate my body, but I know I can become hyper-fixated or critical at times.

24 Hours Post Microneedling…

Last night I microneedled with my channel pro micro-channeling pen.

The blog details everything I use and wear to source. Comment “SKIN” for the blog and App link sent to your DM 📥.

The Channel Pro Pen differs from a Dr Pen because you stamp rather than skim the skin.

Like a Dr Pen you choose your cartridge however, unlike a Dr Pen there is no depth dial. 
Instead, I pick my cartridge by depth. Last night I used a .5mm 82 pin flower cartridge.

I mixed up umbilical lining Exosomes and added GHK-cu and NAD+ to my microneedling serum.

This year I’ve learned a lot about peptides, how they signal on cellular wall receptors and can optimize our systems.

With this in mind, getting peptides in deeper only makes sense when our skin barrier is made up of keratin rich cells that are no longer living. 

These top cells have expelled their internal nucleus and organelles, which means topicals can hydrate these dead cells, but can’t affect or improve them.

This is why exfoliation reveals more youthful and hydrated skin by sloughing off these dead skin cells that create our skin barrier.

Punching these peptides and Exosomes in deeper gets them to living cells. And thereby real improvement can happen.

This is why I love my Mondays:) especially now that summer’s  arrived!!!

Comment “SKIN” for the blog link…it details everything I used in today’s Live found inside the Natural Kaos App.

On Facebook? Here is the blog link: https://www.naturalkaos.com/channel-pro-pen-microneedling-w-power-blue-ghk-nad/

The LIVE began with a quick glycolic peel. While the peel primed my skin, I activated the Exosomes and added the copper peptide and NAD+ serum.

Then, I wiped the glycolic peel off and brushed the exosome serum on my forehead.

I used my Channel Pro stamping microchanneling pen with the 82-pin cartridge. I like how this flower cartridge fits around my nose.

After micro-channeling, I put on a soothing bio-cellulose sheet mask and then my UV shield so I could go out for a Red LED light bed session.

I love that I can treat my face and body simultaneously while I nap.

Then it was time to return home, eat some steak, and then edit this mini day vlog.

And this is what my face looks like 2.5 hours after micro-channeling.
