Healthier Way to Make-up

How is your weekend going?  I hope it's been a good one!  Today I wanted to more on the beauty side of things.  Since I'm still struggling with problem skin, I'm constantly on the lookout for different sensitive skin solutions.

I was, recently, inspired by a post written by fellow blogger, Elizabeth Stewart, to learn more about healthier makeup and a specific brand called Beauty Counter.  (If you want to read her list of harmful makeup ingredients & parabens, check it out here.) 

Below I've included some of my tips for being more aware of what you're putting on your face.

Step Out of Your Closet Comfort Zone

How are you all feeling on this sunny Sunday morning?  I hope you're feeling confident and a little experimental, because I've been challenged by Dia & Co. to 'face my fashion fears', and I think you should too!  They've challenged me to wear an outfit/clothing item I might not normally have the confidence to wear, so I've decided to show a little more skin, wear some gorgeous colored sunnies, and some oh-so-badass boots.  

This outfit featured a couple out-of-my-comfort-zone elements.  I thought I might feel a little self-conscious wearing this, but instead I felt quite the opposite!  Wearing this gorgeous outfit has surprisingly made me feel more empowered.  The boots made me feel badass, the v-neck dress made me feel pretty and feminine, and the sunnies were of so cool.

My Month With Bioclarity

I know this is not my usual post day, but I just wanted to do an extra post because I had a little free time! I am going to try and do a beauty post mid-week every now and then just to mix it up a bit now that I have more time in the summer.

First of all, for those of you who also suffer with acne, I feel your pain! It's such a confidence destroyer sometimes, but remember, there is a solution for everyone out there.  I recommend trying different acne systems, spot treatments, and maybe even try a birth control to help with hormonal breakouts.  There are thousands of options, so never give up trying to find the right one for you.  Another important thing to remember is that pretty much everyone as some point in their life suffers with acne, so no one is judging you.  Most of the time, other people won't even notice the spots that seem so obvious to you.  It's a normal part of life and sometimes we just have to remind ourselves of that.

My Tactics for Fighting Acne

Today, I wanted to discuss a matter I'm sure we'd all wish we could avoid...acne.  Since I've been through the pimple-filled teen years and lived to tell the tale, I thought I would share some things I've learned along the way.  A couple years into my twenties now, I've realized that the occasional occurrence of spots is here to stay. This my go-to arsenal for keeping those pesky spots in check.

I hope you're all doing well and enjoying a bit of cool weather for a change! Personally winter is my favorite time of the year.  I love the holidays, cozy nights in with fuzzy blankets and hot cocoa, and of course SNOW, but the one thing I don't enjoy is dry skin, which is a nearly unavoidable winter symptom. 

So I've compiled a few little tips and products for keeping your skin glowing and healthy even on the chilliest of days.

Update Your Skin Care Routine

So I recently made a change in my skincare routine and I thought I should update you on what and why.

As you may already know, I've been using ProActiv for years now.  I had moderate acne before I started using it in my early teens and it really seemed to help.

Healthy Skin is Happy Skin

Today I wanted to talk about how important it is to take care of your skin and to do that, I have some new products from Cremé Simon. I've honestly been enjoying these products so much.  They both and look and smell incredible.  (Their scent is hard to describe, but it's one of my favorites.  I would say it's very fresh and floral.)
