Hi, game changer. THIS BAG, you guys. She’s so good. The perfect travel companion and fancy enough to throw on for work. I can’t even begin to tell you how much more enjoyable my morning commute is now that I have both arms free to eat a breakfast sammy or high five strangers. Just kidding. Germs. Is this what guys feel like all the time? The freedom of purselessness, ladies. It’s definitely a thing.

How To Take Care of Your Skin this Winter

February 27, 2015

It’s come to my attention that not everyone hydrates their skin. Mostly because a few readers reached out to me after this post thanking me for reminding them to moisturize.

WHAT.

1

If you’re not moisturizing in the morning before you put on your makeup and at night after you remove it, you’re doing it wrong and you’re going to have an intimate relationship with the local botox lady by the time you’re 35. NOT INTO IT.

If you’re anything like me, you spend an obscene amount of money trying out new beauty products to help cover your imperfect skin. That stops today. From now on, you will spend your money on improving the quality of your skin via SKINCARE and makeup. But, it’s always so expensive. Don’t talk back to me. Stop spending hundreds on miracle lotions only to use $9 drugstore foundation. Those days are over. There is inexpensive makeup that helps to improve your skin. The Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue Tinted Hydrating Cream Gel is my favorite and a great place to start.

Every time I wash my face, morning and night, I apply a serum (this Marula Oil is a game changer), then a moisturizer, then eye cream. OMG that’s so excessive. OMG you’re being cray; enjoy your wrinkles at 30. My AM moisturizer has SPF in it because hello, appropriate skin care regimen.

I’ve also become one of those super high maintenance women who spritzes her face with Evian during the day. Why? Because it’s effective. Hello, refreshing. And I’d rather look a little unhinged with my aerosol water can now then look 70 when I’m 40.  Hate away, haters. For an additional pick me up, I dab on a little of that eye cream I use in the morning. Yes, right over my makeup.

I’m also a big fan of hydrating gel eye pads and face masks. Every Saturday morning I slap these bad boys on my dark circles for 20 minutes and every Sunday night I detox my face with these masks. Yes, they’re pricey but totally worth it. I also really like this cream mask during the week.

Interested in masks that do more than just hydrate? Sephora breaks down their favorite masks by treatment type.
