Inside the Acne Bootcamp to the Stars like Miley Cyrus

September 20, 2021

If you’ve ever wondered how celebrities and mega influencers like Miley Cyrus, The Weeknd and Blair Imani fix their severe acne breakouts, I found your answer. 

It’s Face Reality’s Acne Bootcamp.  With over a 90% success rate, celebrities and acne sufferers nationwide rely on this customized acne program to clear their skin. Here is a breakdown of what clients can expect during the program.

I could not wait to take my teen to see Zaida’s studio, Skintegrity, at her cute little studio over in Glendale, where she follows this Face Reality Acne Bootcamp protocol, that WORKS!

During the initial consultation, the Zaida, evaluated Aria’s skin – and discussed all possible acne triggers such as hormones, digestive system, stress levels, diet, medications, cosmetics and lifestyle. 

Her facial was next level – Aria has had many facials to address her teen acne and all have left her a MESS. Zaida treated Aria with extra care while doing a supremely thorough extraction portion. For the first time, Aria’s skin has totally cleared up – IN A WEEK – after the facial and using the products Zaida outlined for her protocol. She is glowing and more important HAPPY!!!

We are definitely going back and Zaida is Aria’s new facialist. Now of course I cannot wait to get it for myself. While I don’t have acne, many women my age have massive hormonal issues, and I can certainly use a facial from an expert who knows what they are doing. As far as I’m concerned, being trained as an acne specialist prepares you for everything.

The 411 on the Acne Bootcamp to the Stars:
  • After the consultation, clients will receive a customized skincare regimen and treatment plan. Face Reality products are pharmaceutical-grade, designed specifically for acne-prone skin, with different strengths for all levels of acne. Expert guidance is given on how to use the products to ensure skin is not getting irritated.

  • The actual professional acne treatments are customized for the condition of the skin at the time of treatment. Sometimes the skin will need hydration and other times you will need corrective peels to facilitate the clearing of your acne and dark spots. They will perform extractions at every treatment so your skin clears more quickly.

  • Depending on the severity of your acne, it typically takes 3-4 months to get clear. Many people see a noticeable difference in their acne within the first two months.

YOUBE: Not Your Mama’s Co-Working Space

September 18, 2021

We’ve been navigating working from home for over a year now…Now the issue is, how do we maintain any semblance of work-life balance?

Your kitchen table might make a great standing desk, it’s probably not the most ergonomic or functional workspace. Luckily, there’s a new design-forward co-working space that just opened in the poppin’ West Adams neighborhood.  Meet YOUBE (pronounced ‘you-bee’).

The modern and comfortable office space features private meeting pods, POPPIN branded designer sit/stand desks, and focus chairs in a sleek new setting. YOUBE seamlessly blends their Scandinavian influences with a California-centric and breezy bohemian vibe.  With floor-to-ceiling windows, YOUBE offers a vibrant workspace including lush greenery, local art throughout the space, and an in-store shopping showroom. Centrally located on the hottest block in West Adams, when lunchtime comes around popular West Adams’ restaurants Mizlala and Alta are just a stone’s throw away.

YOUBE is setting itself apart from the average coworking space with its community involvement and local partnerships. By blending a modern co-working space with a designer showroom concept, local furniture designers, clothing brands, and artists have the opportunity to showcase their goods for YOUBE guests. As you walk through the space you’ll find designer brands integrated into the space like CANAVA and Nations of Nomads displaying their goods for purchase. Even the artwork that adorns the walls throughout is available for purchase and is all from local artists including works from Photographer James Acai, Artist Migella Accorsi, Jay Bell, and Fine Art Photographer Eugene Kim.

YOUBE offers a flexible and super accessible option for those looking for a comfortable and affordable office environment. YOUBE’s prices start at $6/hour for individual guests booking a sit/stand desk – with no membership required – and prices go down the more credits you buy.

YOUBE is also opening a Larchmont location which is slated to open this fall.

Mention code: YOUBEGROOMED and they’ll set you up with 8 free credits to use for 30 days.

YOUBE is located at 5335 West Adams Blvd., Los Angeles CA, 90016. You can follow them on Instagram @yoube.today for more news and updates.

This Supplement Combats Cravings

September 15, 2021

Nucific’s Bio X4 is a supplement we are trying now – why? Because it purports to deal with cravings for fat and sugar. It contains powerful probiotics from 5 strains to provide a healthier balance of “good” gut bacteria. Think: relief from bloating. It also has 3 key digestive enzymes: amylase, lipase and bromelain to help better break down the food and help absorb more of the energy and nutrients – making your whole body feel healthy and perform at its peak.

It also contains EGCG, a compound in green tea, which helps boost your metabolism and give you natural energy. And the Caralluma Fimbriata in the product helps curb unhealthy food cravings.

Of course, results vary for consumers because all individuals are unique. But they do offer a 90-day money-back guarantee – if you don’t see results you don’t have to worry. I love that.

Nucific is also offering readers 25% off sitewide on their products. Using code NUCIFIC25 at checkout!

Here’s the breakdown!
