Hey hey – now that’s officially winter (alright, it’s been winter for a while now…), let’s talk about skin. I don’t know about you, but my skin does not do so good in the winter time. It gets flaky and dry, it’s just not a good look. Let me tell you how I conquer this issue with my current skincare routine!
Always, always wash your face in the morning. My current favorite face cleanser is the Dermalogica Speical Cleansing Gel. It’s so gentle on your skin, it feels amazing.
After washing your face, tone your face! My go to right now, is the Etude House (it’s a Korean skincare/make up brand, I seriously swear by all their products. LOVE THEM) Soonjung Set. AND…it’s on sale right now.
Don’t forget to moisturize. My favorite will always be the CeraVe Facial Moisturizing Lotion. It’s seriously so hydrating and so light on your skin. Your face will seriously thank you.
I’d love to know your favorite skincare products – leave it in the comments below!
Let’s talk beauty, shall we? I think taking care of your skin is equally as important as eating healthy. Fortunately, there are a bunch of beauty brands out there for you to choose from for your skin type. Choosing the right product is important, because some products contain a high amount of alcohol and it dries your skin out. (We don’t want that) Even though there are a million beauty brands to choose from, my favorite brand for July is – Mario Badescu!
This brand carries products ranging from toners, pimple reducer, facial sprays, face wash and much more. My favorite products are the below:

The Facial Spray with Aloe, Herbs and Rosewater is TO DIE FOR. I love spraying onto my face mid-day when I’m at work, to help wake my skin up.
Glyotic Foaming Cleanser – let me just tell you, a little goes a LONG way.
Oil free Moisturizer – when they say it’s oil free, it’s truly oil free. LOVE IT.
Drying Lotion – so…the biggest con about this is the smell, but I swear it WORKS.
Try out the products and let me know which one is your fav! Mine’s the facial spray.
Let’s be honest, being girls is not simple at all. There’s a routine behind it everyday, whether it’s skincare routine, make up routine, or workout routine. Well, I want to help you girls out, here I’ll share with you my top 5 beauty hacks that I’ve learned and done and is still doing.
Oily face, gross! There’s a product out there that’s perfect for this issue – oil blotting sheets. However, we might not always have these handy, I know for sure I don’t. But, don’t you worry, I’ve got just the hack for you! You can actually use toilet paper seat covers as oil blotting sheets! You might think it’s kinda unsanitary, but think about it, it’s in a box. On top of that, you use them to cover the dirty seats for your clean booties. Trust me, it works wonders.
If you’re anything like me, then you’re super impatient at times, especially in the morning. It’s rough waiting for your daily moisturizer to dry in the morning before you put your make up on. So put your hair dryer on the cool setting and aim it at your face.
Oh sh-t! Have you ever had one of those moments in the morning, when you’re rushing out the door and your make up looks like a complete mess? Well, don’t worry. Wherever you messed up, just grab a cotton swab and put some lotion/petroleum jelly and boom, it’s gone.
Ever looked in the mirror in the morning and go, “oh jeez…” Yeah, we all have those. Sometimes, we’re just super tired and need a little help to look awake. Grab a nude eyeliner or white eyeliner, line it on your waterline and bam, you look more awake!
Greasy hair is a BIG no-no, but washing your hair everyday is also a BIG no-no. So, what do we do? Well, you could either use dry shampoo, you can find this at your local Wal-Mart or drugstore. However, I read an article somewhere that using too much dry shampoo is actually bad for your hair. It slows down hair growth and dries out your hair. Instead, the night before, I’ll usually put the back part of my hair into a bun and leave the front bang section of my hair out. I jump in the shower and only wash the front section. You could also do this at the sink, if it’s easier. Wash it out with shampoo only and NO conditioner. You don’t want to make it greasy again.
Hope you enjoyed all my beauty hacks/tips! Let me know if you’ve tried any of them or any beauty hacks that you like that I didn’t list!
It’s SO important to understand that makeup DOES expire, and when it does, you DO NOT want to put it on your face. Not only does it not do it’s job, but it can also increase break outs or even … Continue reading →
