Healthy Skin is Always in {Self Care = Self Love}

I get a lot of questions about my skin care routine all the time. I love skin care, make up and I’m all about getting dolled up & the pretty photo filters. However, there is also something so refreshingly beautiful about being comfortable in your own bare skin & seeing other women do & feel the same about themselves. I myself am striving to go at least once a week w/o make up to give my skin the chance to breathe & to help normalize embracing your natural beauty. I hate that most women feel the need to apologize if they run into someone while out running errands and they don’t have make up on. Or that your co-workers would think something was wrong or you must have had a rough morning if you chose to not wear make up that day to the office.

Favorite Hair Care Products & Tools

So if you’ve been following my Instagram post’s and stories you saw that I chopped some major length off my hair last week, 5 inches to be exact. My hair started to take on some major damage this spring and I think it was a mixture of coloring my hair blonde, using too high of a heat setting on my curling iron along with not using the best products and especially heat protecting products on my hair. I’ve also really slacked at remembering to take my hair vitamins, which I typically see an actually difference in my hair when I do remember to take them. Needless to say this was a much needed cut and I’m excited to have a fresh start at healthy hair again.

Holy Grail, Must Have Beauty Products

If you’ve followed my blog for awhile now then you know I’m a beauty product junkie and I always love trying out new and trending products. Over the last few years but especially this past year I’ve tried so many products both name brand and drug store. I’m all about finding the perfect ones that not only work well in the moment to enhance natural beauty but also work longterm to work against the signs of aging such as wrinkles, age and sun spots, enlarged pores, capillaries, and adult acne and blackheads.

 if I only had 5 min’s to grab items before fleeing These are the beauty products that I would choose to grab (after my dogs, childhood stuffed animal, and other keepsakes of course). my holy grail, must have, go to items that I can truly tell a negative difference in my skin if I go more than 3 days without using them. these are the products that work best for my combination but mostly dry skin.

My New Beauty Buys & Trys

Happy March friends, I’m taking a big sigh of relief that we made it through winter and the light can be seen at the end of the tunnel. It was a beautiful sunny weekend here in Kansas City with temps in the high 60’s giving me the promise of spring which I am so ready for. Anyways, I wanted to share a round-up of beauty products that have been on my wishlist for a couple of months now and that I finally went out and picked up over the past week or so. I obviously haven’t tried these products out but for only 3-4 days now so I will be sure to do a full review with all my thoughts here in 4-6 weeks after i’ve had time to use them long term. These are products i’ve had my eye on after seeing other bloggers or beauty vloggers talk about them and having success. Along with that I also love love love to read product reviews and do my own research before purchasing any product so some of these come from my own findings and experts at beauty stores as well.

My Current Nightly Skin Care Routine

{my NIGHTLY skin care routine}

as promised today I’m sharing part 2 of my skin care routine detailing out everything I do and use in the pm. fair warning, my nightly routine might seem like a lot and to be honest I probably spend more time taking off my make up and caring for my skin than i actually do putting on my make up. however, I do truly believe that all of these steps are totally worth the extra time for healthy skin in the long run.

My Current Morning Skin Care Routine

I originally had this post featuring both my AM and PM skin care routines but it was lonnnng. So, I’m going to break it up into two separate post’s this week for you guys. Starting it off with today’s post sharing my morning skin care routine.  I mentioned in my ‘A Year in Review’ blog post that taking good care of my skin is a major part of my 2018 goals. I really started caring for my skin when I got engaged in 2015 and even then I wasn’t doing all that I could have been. Before then, there were many times {more than I want to admit} where I’d go to bed with my make up on. I wasn’t following a routine and I thought a make up wipe, face wash, and a basic moisturizer was good enough. If only we could only go back in time to tell our younger selves to take better self care, sigh.

The older I get the more I realize how lucky I am to have a healthy body with no major issues. I am so grateful for that and I want to really start taking the best possible care of it that I can, which includes my skin. Jack McFarland from Will & Grace says it best, “There’s no shame in getting old. There’s only shame in getting ugly.” 😉 Aging gracefully is a goal of mine and I’m taking all the preventative measures I can in order to do so.
