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 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.

Must Have Mask Monday + My Round Up of Current Favorite Beauty Products

Like most women I have become obsessed with skin care, really just self-care in general, since being in my mid twenties. In my late teen years and even my early twenties I think I pretended to care and thought I was doing ‘good enough’ when it came to taking care of my skin. Ohhh boy, was I so very wrong about this. It was probably age 23 that my skin started showing the first signs of aging as in ‘you’re not 13 anymore and can’t just go to bed with out washing your face and everything be okay’. It was age 24 and the year I got engaged that I actually made the commitment to start doing something about it. Basic things like drinking plenty of water, using SPF on the daily, and washing your face every night before bed are all very important, yes. Though in my personal opinion finding the right products that are proven with reviews and stand the test of being great quality is right up at the top of the list. With that being said, I wanted to share some of my favorite skin care products along with hair care products that I’ve been using within the last few months and even some of them for half my life.
