Beat Under-Eye Bags & Crow’s Feet In 30 Mins!

You guys might’ve seen my post on laser skin resurfacing a few months ago, when I was prepping my skin for the wedding (read the story here). I received the treatment again recently around my eyes using the Palomar Icon 1540 Fractional non-ablative laser, and just wanted to share the results with you guys and some of my personal tips for anyone who’s looking to try it out.

I first received the treatment on my forehead where I had started to notice a few fine lines, and while there was some redness afterwards I felt like I healed pretty quickly and loved the results. I love that this can be used as an alternative to Botox, and was so happy with the tighter, smoother appearance of my forehead in the months following my treatment. Perfect for right before my wedding!

Since I was so happy with the results the first time, I worked up the courage to go back and receive the treatment around my eyes (I’m nervous to do anything very close to the eye, but Dr. Rosenberg always makes me feel comfortable – I totally recommend him if you’re in California!). The skin around your eyes is much thinner and more delicate than on your forehead, and the treatment feels like someone snapping a rubberband on your skin repeatedly. Not unbearable, but an ice pack afterwards really helped!

It’s been about a month and I’m seeing the results Dr. Rosenberg said I would: smoother skin, which is tightened, therefore reducing the shadows and circles I have always suffered from (they get darker when i’m exhausted!). The crow’s feet lines that come up when you smile, have also reduced. Which is awesome! The laser leaves very subtle marks on your skin that aren’t noticeable with makeup, and they disappear over time. It’s important to wear a very high SPF – factor 50 ideally – on the area afterwards, even if you don’t live in a sunny climate. And to keep the area hydrated day and night with a good serum or eye cream, too.

My main takeaway? If you’re a bride who wants a more youthful look for your wedding, get this treatment at least 2 months in advance, so that your skin has time to fully heal. The results are totally worth it, and a great alternative to peels, Botox or fillers. I also highly recommend pairing these treatments with facials (though a few weeks apart) to really give your skin that perfect glow. Check out some other cool natural facial treatments I did for my wedding here. Good luck!

  • Happy Mother’s Day!
I want to dedicate this post to one of my dearest friends, who became a Mummy to premature surrogate twins this year, only to tragically lose them a few hours later, as she held them in her arms. My friend had been through years of trying for a baby through IVF, and finally - after years of hope and patience - we all felt her and her husband’s dream of becoming parents was about to come true.
That heart-breaking day also happened to be the date Honor was born, so the poignancy was all the sharper. I still remember the moment I learned the news. My own mum was with me, and we wept silently, hugging. 
I fully expected my friend to avoid Mackenzie and I for a while, to deal with her grief. Surely being around a newborn would just be too much. But testament to her angelic, brave character, she asked to come over. I’ll never forget the warmth and love in her eyes as she held Honor tight. She said she was full of hope. She said that the twins would be watching over, helping and guiding them on their continued journey to have a baby. 
You’d think that would be enough to focus on, but no. Instead, this wonderful couple decided to set up @pompomsandstardust , a charity not only raising money to help other people have surrogate children, but one that offers crucial (and lacking) advice and support to the ‘IP’s’ (intended parents), along their journey. 
If you or your loved ones have been through a difficult time conceiving, my heart goes out to you- I wish you strength, perseverance- and please feel free to share your story below.
The charity website will be up soon with more information, but for now follow @pompomsandstardust 💫
