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 Drugstore Favorites

I thought I'd do a cheeky little beauty post this week since I haven't done one in a while.  I hope you guys enjoy it!
