The 6 Products I’m Using Obsessively To Keep My Skin Hydrated This Winter

The 6 Products I’m Using Obsessively To Keep My Skin Hydrated This Winter

(Bring this with you on your next beauty shopping trip!)

Winter isn’t inherently evil. Sometimes it’s beautiful (first snowfall), and sometimes it’s it’s just got annoying bits to it (when first snowfall leads to next snowfall, and the next…)

But however you may feel about Winter, we can all agree that it can wreak total havoc on our skin, from head to toe. Between the indoor heating that sucks moisture from the air, and the freezing temperatures that can make your skin dry, chapped, cracked and otherwise uncomfortable, our skin has got its work cut out for itself.

But I’m not going down without a fight. So, keep reading to my personal winter weather skin arsenal. It’s relatively easy and all but one of the products are under $20!

Now, these are not in the order of my love and preference, but rather the order in which I apply them, let’s get into it:

Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Milk, $28, Sephora

I originally purchased this product after a particularly rough bout of dry, rash ridden skin. It was so sensitive to the the touch and this creamy makeup remover/cleanser felt like a calming dream. You apply this dry, massage it over your face and then add a bit of water to your hands and massage again. Then, rinse off and feel refreshed. It’s pricey, and honestly, after I’m done with this product, I’m most likely try a drugstore equivalent (Yes To Cucumbers makes one that’s got me curious), but for now it’s what I have and I don’t want to waste product, and it’s wildly effective. If you have Ultra Sensitive skin, skip the drugstore and go for this tried and true allergy-free formula. The cost is worth it for peace of mind and it lasts you quite a while because you only need a little at a time to do a big cleansing job.

First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream (Mini Tube), $12, Sephora

I have the full size tube of this cream. It’s fantastic. I first got hooked on First Aid Beauty through a few samples that were included in an online Sephora order. Ever since then? Nothing but my complete devotion. Don’t get me wrong, Clinique is a classic when it comes to tending to sensitive skin, but First Aid Beauty is innovative in the way it caters to the same market. Products like oatmeal masks, lip exfoliants, glycolic peel pads, serums, firming sleeping cream, and body lotion mists (just to name a few), there truly is something for everyone. You can read about their lip hydration set here.

This cream comes in a variety of formulas and packaging. Their tub boasts intense hydration, which must be superhuman level because their plain old tube is incredibly hydrating already. I prefer tubes because I feel they are more sanitary. You can use this cream any time of the day for a non-greasy, heavy dose of hydrating and soothing goodness.

Boots Hydration Burst 3 in 1 Micellar Cleanser, $6.69, Target

I will forever sing the praises of Micellar Water, the gentle, effective way to remove makeup and cleanse your skin, without leaving it stripped, dry or tight after. This particular formula is for dehydrated and sensitive skin, which I think can be anyone during winter. Bonus points for being alcohol-free. All you need is a cotton pad and 2 minutes, then you’re good to go! Double bonus points for also being available at Walgreens (although not in every location sadly).

Mario Badescu Facial Spray with Aloe, Cucumber and Green Tea, $5-12, Ulta

The only thing that I might be more obsessed with than sheet masks are facial mists and sprays. I love the Tatcha Dewy Skin Mist ($18, Sephora), but sometimes a girl’s gotta skip the fancy packaging and go the the simple ingredients that just work. 

This mist is the quintessential basic but better situation. 3 soothing ingredients, all packed together to give you a refreshing, completely saturating dose of moisture and hydration. This mist comes in other varieties, including lavender and rose water, but when it comes to perking up dry, irritated skin, this aloe, cucumber and green tea combination cannot be beat. Bonus points for being available in a $5 (!!) travel size so you can mist and refresh throughout the day.

Palmer’s Coconut Oil Formula Body Oil, $6.99, Walgreens

I have tried so many lotions. So. Many. Only one has been able to provide the kind of hydration my skin needs year round but especially in the winter. Problem is, it’s pretty rich and after applying, I experience muscle aches and pains and need to lay down (#LupusSucks). So I decided to cut myself a break and find something easier to apply that would still moisturize my skin for a full day. Heellooo body oils. I was first thinking about almond, grapeseed or argan oil. But, on a quick trip to Walgreens, I discovered this product. For the price, I was willing to give it a try and not love it. I tried it. I don’t love it, but it does a nice job so I’m definitely not complaining. Instant hydration? Check. Greasy skin? Nope, not here. Smooth and soft? Double check. The caveat here is that coconut oil can be cosmogenic (that is, pore clogging). I wasn’t too worried about this because I use a soap that mildly exfoliates everyday. If you don’t or can’t exfoliate regularly, I would think twice about using coconut oil on your skin. If you need recommendations on alternatives, drop a comment below.

And last but certainly not least…

Neutrogena Hydro Boost Hydrating Lip Treatment, $8.99, Ulta

Courtesy: Neutrogena/Ulta

…this surprisingly good lip product. I’ve already hit bottom in one area of this pot. Don’t let the color fool you, this super hydrating balm goes on completely clear. It has a bit of slip at first but seems to thicken a bit when applied and sinks into your lips beautifully. I use in the morning before applying any other lip products and before bed as a lip mask. Put this on and allow some time for this to naturally go to work and do its thing. The best part about this treatment is that it doesn’t make you feel like you need constant application. One application, twice a day will do you just nicely.

Well, I hope you all enjoyed this post and find it helpful. Please feel free to comment below with any questions. And I’d love to hear how you protect and hydrate your skin in the winter too.

Drawing The Line: Anti-Aging and Personal Reconciliation

Drawing The Line: Anti-Aging and Personal Reconciliation

Today’s chat might seem random. It’s not. This year, I turn 30! I’ve thought about this new milestone a lot in the last couple of weeks, as my family has constantly been reminding me of its impending arrival. I’m not scared or anything, but I honestly never thought much about my thirties beyond wanting to be done with my crazy twenties and hoping for a more relaxing, stable decade of life. Not to mention, there were some periods where I questioned if I’d even make it due to chronic illness flares. But, we’re looking at the upshot here, and I’m now thinking about all the positive possibilities…

You know what I’ve noticed lately? Beauty advice, especially skin care, is often broken into categories based on your age. Popular blogs, websites and even magazines all seem to want to point out what products you have to change out when you’re entering a new decade. Some of that advice, I take. Most of it? I leave. (Let me know in the comments if you’d like me to link you to some of these articles with skincare, beauty and even fashion advice by the decade)

One set of advice that I do really pay close attention to? Which treatments one should consider when transitioning from one decade to another. Lasers, professional facial peels, outpatient procedures like Botox, Juvaderm, or other fillers/injections are all recommended. And that got me thinking: how far am I actually  willing to go to look like I’m still in my twenties (or better)?

Turns out, I’m not willing to go very far. Surprising, right? Also, it’s downright confusing. I love beauty and products so much, that I’m almost baffled at my unwillingness to go under the knife for cosmetic improvement or relief. I’m not completely sure why I feel that way that I do, but I do feel like the answer lies more deeply and will take time to truly unpack.

Some people prefer to age naturally, that is, leave everything as it and as it will be. Laugh lines? Reminders of happy times. Others prefer to take advantage of all that modern medicine has to offer. I truly believe there is no wrong answer.

So, I wanted to ask you…how far are you willing to go? No judgment, just different experiences, thresholds, and genuine curiosity. Do you have a philosophy that drives your level of comfort? Let’s chat in the comments :)

2018 Health, Wellness and Beauty Resolutions

2018 Health, Wellness and Beauty Resolutions

Happy New Year! It’s finally here, 2018. Are you as excited as I am?

I’m very hopeful for this new year. 2017 wasn’t terrible to me but it definitely shed some light on areas of my life that I can work to improve. If 2017 gave report cards, I would’ve failed in the stress and self-care department. Big time. No catch up assignments.

But, if a new day can bring about a complete improvement, so can a new year. So, keep reading for my 2018 resolutions for beauty, health and wellness.

Drink more water. I don’t do so bad in this area but I can definitely do better. There are a lot of benefits to drinking water, we’ve all heard them. For me, I want to specifically help my body perform its essential functions better: like clearing toxins. I take a lot of heavy-duty medications, sometimes I feel like a walking toxin bin. This is a small, relatively easy thing that I can do, and it’ll yield big results.

More #sheetmasking please! Have you guys jumped on the K-Beauty train? If so, whatever level of K-beauty fan you are, I think we can all agree that sheet masking is God’s gift to skin and self-care routines everywhere. I’m looking forward to scheduling 15-30 minutes of uninterrupted, pure luxuriating relaxation time. I’m going to shoot for 3 times a week minimum. My mind and face is READY.

No more daily nail polish changes. First of all, how did I ever have the time?! Then again, I’m just replacing the daily nail polish changes (don’t judge me) with sheet mask time. I want my nails to be healthy, long and strong, so I’ve got to kick my daily polish remover habit, otherwise, it’s highly unlikely that I’ll get the nails of my dreams. It’s not all sad news though, this resolution will give me a chance to try out some of the at-home gel systems that are available from brands like Sally Hansen and Deborah Lippmann for particularly hectic 2-week or longer stretches.

Treat my brows and lashes with a little more TLC. Y’all already know that I love a good brow and lash look. I’ve never been scared of a heavy-duty mascara and I put my (thin, almost non-existent) brows through their share of wear and tear almost daily with fiber gels and pencils, but up until now I’ve been living on a wing and a prayer that they would both hold up. No more reckless beauty living: it’ll only take a minute or two for me to coat my brows and lashes in castor oil. I’m not looking for miracles, I’m just trying to keep matters from getting worse (read: scraggly).

Perfect a winged eyeliner look. Need I say more? A sharp eyeliner look for my almond-shaped peepers would be fierce. Bonus points for colored eyeliner looks.

Take up yoga and meditation. Again. Save your side-eye. Sometimes the best things take a few times to catch on. And quite frankly, it’s been years since I’ve done either so I feel like I’m actually starting for the first time. The two usually come as a package deal, so…fine. I don’t have to love it to commit to trying again, so I won’t lie and say I’m enthusiastic about it, but the way my Lupus has these joints and muscles set up? Any poses I can do to lessen pain and loosen tight muscles: sign me up. The meditation? That’s for trying to keep my mind clear because I carry a lot.

Stick to a regular sleep routine. 8 hours a night. Most nights. Some nights I need for fun. This also means I’ve gotten stash my devices in another room or something because have y’all been on Twitter lately? So addictive. I digress.

Say ‘no’ more often. Because I’m exhausted to my core from saying yes about 90% of the time. I’m so tired, I could hibernate. Lucky bears.

So, what about you? Any beauty, health or wellness resolutions? Tell me in the comments!

Cheers to a happy, healthy, beautiful 2018 friends! *sips champagne*

Thanks, But No: A Few Things I’ve Tried and Tossed

Thanks, But No: A Few Things I’ve Tried and Tossed

Have you ever tried something because you’ve heard so much about it, and it sounded like it’d be the most perfect addition to your beauty stash? Me too. And I love when something works and becomes a HG product. But that’s not always the case. Sometimes, no matter how much you want to love a product, or how well it seems to work with/on someone else, it’s just not for you.

Unfortunately, this year I’ve come across a few products like that. Some I will give a little more time…others, I just need to quickly toss. Read on for the products that I just can’t adopt into my product family:

NYX Cosmetics Lip Lingerie: Let me start by saying that I absolutely LOVE liquid lipsticks. I love lip products period. The more matte, the better. And I’ve tried my fair share of NYX products and never had anything but praise and a spot in my stash for them so I bought 4 different shades of Lip Lingerie one day on while on a Target run. I didn’t think twice. The shades (French Maid, Exotic, Beauty Mark, and Ruffle Trim) are all beautiful nudes. They’re great for a subtle and polished look. The real tragedy though? The wear. They apply nicely (although a little more wet than I typically prefer), and the pigment payoff is exquisite. That just doesn’t last very long. After a few hours, they feel tacky in some places, dry in others and become uneven. God forbid you wear these on a busy day when you’re not apply to touch up or reapply regularly! (And to be honest, it’s my personal opinion that touch ups and reapplications should be sparse when necessary, but I love long wear products that leave me with one less thing to worry about throughout a hectic day). Bottom line: Try one first, see what you think. If you love, stock them all. If you don’t, you’re not stuck with multiples to throw away (like me, SMH).

Maybelline The Falsies Push Up Drama Mascara: I got more excited about this mascara launching than I do for a lot of new beauty launches. One of my HG mascaras is Benefit They’re Real Mascara (which is the stuff of your lashes-but-better dreams). I’ll buy it as long as it’s good, but the price tag ($24!) is a little steep for a mascara so I’m always looking out for a drugstore dupe that I can use in its place for most days (saving Benefit for special occasions, etc.) I thought this Maybelline offering was the one. I thought it was here to save me and my debit card. Disappointment, thy name is a mascara formula that makes your eyes tear a few minutes after applying. That’s right, it’s great–it gives you beautiful long, voluminous dramatic everyday lashes, but my eyes hated something in the formula and wouldn’t let me carry on with my day for as long as I had it on. It’s hard to look at a computer screen, your smartphone, take notes, walk or really anything else that might require your eyesight when you’re so busy wiping your eyes. Unfortunately, this product goes to beauty heaven because of that. R.I.P. (pour out some eye makeup remover for this real one)

Clinique Pep-Start Quick Cleansing Wipes: I’m a fan of the Korean double cleansing method (oil, then water based cleanser) for removing makeup, or simply purifying your makeup free skin after a day out and about in the environment. But every now and then, I need wipes to help me along because I just don’t have the energy to do the double cleanse “properly” every single day. With my sensitive skin I’ve tried a more than decent amount of Clinique’s products and it’s one of my go-to brands. I picked up a pack of these during a couch session of online shopping. They’re inexpensive enough, coming in at $14 for 50 towelettes, but even the price couldn’t get me to use more than 2 wipes before I discarded the pack. The reason? I don’t find these nearly moist enough to a) remove surface oil and dirt (as promised) and b) not leave my skin feeling dry, stripped and irritated. After I used these wipes, I still felt that I needed a sink, soap and water–which completely defeats the purpose of wipes in the first place. I gave these away to someone who tried them while lounging at home with me one day. She loved them. They found a new home. All’s well that ends well, I guess.

Hopefully my latest and future beauty finds will work out better. Crossing my just polished nails and toes. Here’s hoping!

What about you? Any products you’ve tried and had to toss? Let me know in the comments below.

Head to Toe: My Fave Exfoliators

Head to Toe: My Fave Exfoliators

How long is your daily body care routine? Does it change on the weekend when you (presumably) have more time? My body care routine is about 30 minutes on weekdays. On weekends? All bets are off. I get to luxuriate and it’s fantastic. Self-care is important and it can look like anything to anyone. For me, weekends are for the additional at-home spa moment. Whether it’s a calming shower or bath, followed by a rich moisturizer before I go back to bed, or it’s a DIY manicure and/or pedicure, it’s all important and it all feels absolutely wonderful. Whatever your energy level allows, do it.

One of my most loved things to do is to exfoliate head to toe while I’m in the shower, when I step out I feel like a new, pampered person. Keep reading for the products that I use, and love:

Face: 

Acure Organics Brightening Facial Scrub, $3.99 for 1 Fl. Oz, Target 

This is one of my newest facial scrubs, I think I received the trial size (1 fl. oz) as part of a Target Beauty Box. No matter how it came to me, I’m just glad it did. This is a nice scrub for the face, but it requires a light hand, as it can be too abrasive if you scrub your face with too much pressure. Just a light, circling motion will do you just fine. And yes, your face instantly looks a little brighter after rinsing off.

Modern Friction Nature’s Gentle Dermabrasion, $21-40, Origins 

Not one of my most beloved scrubs and I think it could be more gentle, especially since the word is included in its title and packaging, but it’s effective. This is your pick if you are more mindful of ingredients, environmental impact, and the like.

Derma-E Anti-Wrinke Vitamin A Glycolic Scrub, $13.99, Ulta  

I don’t use this scrub often, but I do like it when I use it and I have a feeling that with its specific targeting towards wrinkles, I’ll be using it more and more (hello, year 29). Give this a go, if you’re starting to see wrinkles in places on your face that you’re not okay with (for me, I’m okay with laugh lines, forehead wrinkles though? No, thanks)

Hands:

Just A Minute 60-Second Manicure Scrub, $12, Bath and Body Works 

This citrus fragranced, sugar scrub isn’t necessary, but it’s a nice treat to have around. Your hands take a beating daily from all of the touching, shaking, washing, typing, etc. Keep the skin on your hands looking young, and bright by using this about once a week, and following it with a rich, creamy lotion or oil.

Body:

Soap & Glory Flake Away Body Polish, $13.99, Target  

I had been hearing about this sugar exfoliator for months before I decided to finally give it a try. That was almost a year ago, and I have literally used every ounce of this gentle, moisturizing product since first trying it. It took a little getting used to, as my skin is typically dry and itchy and so I was unsure of how often I should use this, but once I got the hang of it and starting using it once weekly, my skin began to rebel less and become less dry and itchy, and it holds moisture much longer. If you have dry, sensitive, itchy or otherwise timid skin, sugar exfoliators are going to be your go-to, leave the salt scrubs alone. Your skin will thank you.  Also, I have to mention this scrub’s scent, which is the brand’s Original Pink fragrance and includes bergamot, mandarin, rose, peach, strawberry, jasmine, and a few other yummy notes. You’ll be hooked immediately.

Shea Exfoliating Sugar Body Scrub, $7-$24.00, The Body Shop 

If you’re like me and sometimes want something more less fragrant (this smells faintly like the Shea nut it is derived from), and more down to earth, then this is the sugar scrub for you. Also, for the sensitive or irritate skin types, this scrub gets the job down with no fuss. It’s also moisturizing, although less than the Soap & Glory polish, so you’ll have to be ready to hop out of the shower, apply another moisturizer and lock it in before your skin has a chance to fully dry. If you’re looking for a way to try out sugar exfoliators, this is a good introduction as you can purchase a small size (1.7 fl.oz) for only $7. Can’t beat that!

Feet: 

Earth Therapeutics Refreshing Foot Scrub, $4.96, Walmart 

I use this in the shower, even though the directions explicitly tell you to use this on dry feet. The shower is easier for me. This is great for use in between professional pedicures to keep your feet from becoming too dry, cracked and crusty–not cute in warm weather, sandal season. This scrub is quick and easy. Note: if you use this on dry feet, as directed, then you may experience some tingling as it contains peppermint and tea tree oil. That’s normal, but of course, if you feel uncomfortable in any way, rinse your feet, and find something more soothing for your dogs.

Those are my exfoliator picks, I hope you enjoyed reading about them and that you’ll give one, two or a few, a chance. How often do you give your body a fresh skin start? Let me know by leaving a comment.

K-Beauty: My Fave Sheet Masks

K-Beauty: My Fave Sheet Masks

images-1
Photo: Chrissy Tiegen

These days, I’ll about self care and doing what you can to make yourself feel that you’re at your best. For me, that involves a lot of skin care and at home spa-like treatments. As much as I love makeup, I am trying to make the state of my skin a constant priority because its function is critical. Not to mention that your makeup looks best when it’s applied to healthy skin.

 

Cue my obsession with all things K-Beauty. Korean beauty is becoming more and more popular and for good reason: Korean women (and men!) are seriously diligent about skincare. We should all aspire to be dedicated to a care routine with the same fervor. After all, it produces RESULTS. The before and afters are undeniable. Most K-Beauty routines involve approximately 8 steps and can include as many as 12 or 13. Fear not: you don’t need to have these many steps to reap the benefits of the Korean beauty philosophy and method(s). Incorporating a step here or there will have your skin looking better than it ever has.

One of the easiest steps to incorporate is sheet-masking. These cloth masks (they sometimes come in other materials as well) are soaked with serums and moisturizers in a convenient and efficient design to optimize the benefits of the treatment for your skin. You simply unfold the mask, apply to your face avoiding your eyes and let it sit for anywhere from 15-30 minutes (check and follow directions listed on the package). For those minutes that you’re letting the mask sit and work its magic, I like to do absolutely nothing–it’s wonderful! Forced relaxation can be such a benefit and sheet masking trains you to just let yourself be and take rest. Whatever you need to do will still be there when your masking time is finished. And when your time is up, simply remove the mask and throw away. It’s just that easy!

I do a sheet mask at least every other day. Some weeks, I do one daily–I personally love those weeks. I find myself less stressed and with more clarity throughout the week. Since I’ve tried so many, I feel comfortable enough saying I have preferences that I think once you try as well, you’ll love:

Tony Moly is my accessible and affordable sheet mask fix! I get them at my local Urban Outfitters for about $3 each. Sometimes, they’ll have a 4/$10 sale–great for grabbing a few extra or trying one for a different purpose.

  • Red Wine (Pore Care): this mask lives up to its name. I’m prone to large, visible pores so I tried this mask hoping it would reduce their appearance. That it did. Results don’t last very long, so it could be great for special occasions in the beginning.  I’m going to keep using them to determine if results are longer lasting with continued use.
  • Avocado (Nutrition): my face felt “fed” after using this mask for sure. I tried this before bed once and woke up with visibly brighter, plumper skin where scaly spots had started to appear. (Damn flaking face!)
  • Aloe (Moisturizing): I think this should actually also say soothing as I go straight for this one when I feel my skin is irritated or just generally behaving badly. The Tea Tree formula is actually labeled ‘Soothing’ and I find that odd as tea tree is strong and usually irritates many–mostly because it can be drying. Bottom line: this one is a sheet mask staple.

I haven’t tried them all yet, but I do have the Seaweed (Skin Purifying) and Rice (Clear Skin) on deck and will try at least one of them this weekend and report back.

What about you? Got any fave masks? Love to hear about your holy grail masks, especially your sheet mask picks, so comment below!

Good chat. Until next time…xo

 

Mario Badescu Skincare Facial Spray with Aloe, Herbs and Rosewater

Mario Badescu Skincare Facial Spray with Aloe, Herbs and Rosewater

I have a confession: I haven’t been entirely all work and no play as of late. In fact, I’ve had a bit of fun over the last few weekends and Friday was no different. I had 2 exams to take, the first in my summer classes, so of course I was on edge. I typically test well, but it’s certainly not for lack of studying and drilling. Anyhoo, fast forward to Friday. I left my office early and met up with a girlfriend for a relaxing manicure and sushi. But first: Urban Outfitters.

Fortunately, (or unfortunately?) for me, there is a location really close to my home which means there is no excuse for the occasional stop in, even if it’s just to see what’s new and quirky. No matter what, I always check out their little beauty section. I’m not sure if every location carries the same thing, but my UO often has palettes from Stila and NYX, and have recently begun to carry other favorites like beauty books (Bobbi Brown’s latest title was there about a month ago!) to my favorite dry shampoo, Batiste.

This time around, I was very surprised and quite delighted (there might have been an audible excited squeal) to find the instantly recognizable white label with green type: it was Mario Badescu Skincare. The facial spray to be exact. Didn’t even think about it for longer than 2 seconds, I grabbed a bottle and proceeded to smile wide for the rest of our store visit.

Sure, I picked up a couple of other items: a new bottle of dry shampoo and Not Your Mother’s Beach Babe Texturizing Sea Salt Spray (it helps to keep my wig looking more natural than typical.) But, this MB spray: this was the highlight of my purchase. I was all too excited to try this.

 

Mario Badescu Skincare Facial Spray with Aloe, Herbs and Rosewater
Mario Badescu Skincare Facial Spray with Aloe, Herbs and Rosewater

Fast forward to 8:30 Friday night: I’m doing my nightly skin routine and proceeded to spray this on my face generously after cleansing and a healthy swipe of toner. I may have sprayed too much–my face was drenched, but it smelled so wonderful that I couldn’t stop and  had to tell myself to PUT.IT.DOWN. You smell the rosewater first and foremost, but you also detect a hint of herb. Perhaps it’s just me but I don’t detect the aloe in its scent. However, it’s enough for me and my sensitive skin woes to know that it’s included in case of any potential skin revolting since I typically don’t use products with any fragrances (natural or otherwise.)

Here are a couple of other great things about this spray. The label informs that you can use it to set makeup, soothing skin in dehydrating conditions (Hello, Winter. You won’t get me this time!) or for a quick refreshing skin boost.

So, next time you’re in Urban for a flattering pair of jeans, or a Biggie/Tupac shirt, or nail polish (amazing selection), take a peak at the beauty shelf and see if MB’s white label is beckoning. Your skin will thank you.
