Confessions of a former Tanaholic + Obagi Skincare & Elase Giveaway!!!

Where do I even start with my skin?! I guess the beginning is a good place huh?! Hi my name is Kris and I'm a recovering Tanaholic. Oh man, that felt good to get off my chest (and my face:)! Well, let's just get right down to the gory details shall we? I remember during my teen years I would spend hours and hours with my friends just baking in the sun at the local pool, park or lake. I would literally cover my entire body and face with baby oil! Had I heard of sunblock? was that stuff that made me NOT tan...ummm no thanks! Just thinking about the damage I did gives me CHILLS (the bad kind...not the kind you get when those shoes you've been obsessing over are now on sale) I remember one time (and by one I mean several) when I would come home from a trip and not feel "tan enough" so I would go to the tanning beds...sometimes twice...just to make sure I was extra crispy! haha If that's not a Tanoholic I don't know what is! Anyway, if any of you have even come close to this tan insanity there is still hope! 

Because of all this sun exposure I eventually started seeing sun spots, wrinkles, name it and I had it. My skin looked like crap! I also developed Melasama, also called "pregnancy mask" caused by hormones and worsens with sun exposure. Well being an esthetician and learning about the skin I knew I needed to start covering my face and find a way to undo the damage I had caused. I can tell you I have tried everything under the sun (pun intended:) and nothing was working for me. And then I stumbled into heaven...I mean Elase and found Obagi. I'm not saying it's a miracle...but it's a miracle. At least for me it has been. I don't promote ANYTHING I don't use or am fully obsessed with. I know there are other amazing products out there but for me Obagi is my miracle. I use Obagi skincare all year round but I like to get the kit every spring to basically "Spring Clean" my skin and get it extra ready for summer. It has virtually erased all my sunspots and my Melasama has disappeared and will stay that way as long as I keep my face out of the sun and wear sunblock!

If anyone has any skin issues I totally recommend going into Elase and getting a free skin analysis and getting on a skin program.  It is never to late to have the skin you have always wanted! In my experience, when my skin was at its worse I was always trying to hide my face because I was self conscious and embarrassed and that is NO way to live. There are so many treatments available now and if there is one tip I can give you from all my skin ranting it's WEAR SUNSCREEN and cover that face!!! Prevention is half the battle!

Lucky for you the amazing Elase Medical Spa is offering both a treatment & prevention in an awesome giveaway! Enter to win a Glycolic Chemical Peel (perfect for spring renewal of the skin) and also my favorite Obagi Sun Shield Matte Broad Spectrum SPF (which I use and comes in Obagi Nu Derm Kit.) Treatment can be redeemed at any of their locations! To enter is so easy!
