For some, it’s quite peculiar to have a specific cream for the skin under eyes when you already use moisturizers and serums for your whole face. However, eye creams are part of the best skincare routines. Why is eye cream so important, and why you should not skip it? The skin around our eyes is thinner than other parts of our body, which makes it prone to faster aging. It’s so delicate that any signs of skin aging would be incredibly obvious in this area. That is why dermatologists suggest always including eye cream in your skincare routine. Here are some reasons you shouldn’t ignore that eye cream tub: This part of your face needs more tender loving care Because the skin under your eyes is delicate, they need extra TLC. Your eyes also get a bit of a workout throughout the day—you blink, squint, smile, cry, and wink. These movements aren’t so noticeable to you since they happen quite naturally. However, you’ll notice that all these movements have taken a toll on your under-eye area eventually. It’s always best to include an under-eye routine every night to help relax this area of your face. Aside from washing your face, it’s ideal to add an eye cream to your routine and an eye mask to keep it cool and fresh for the next day. The busier you are, the more love it needs An obvious sign of tired eyes is eye bags. The more overworked you get, the less rest you receive, so it’s taking a toll around the area of your eyes. Integrating an eye cream to your skincare routine can help reduce the appearance of dark circles, puffiness, dryness, and wrinkles due to stress and lack of sleep. Prevention is key When you look at yourself in the mirror and see that you don’t need an eye cream right now, you may be right, but you might start to see the changes soon. It’s better to prevent wrinkles, dark circles, dryness, and puffiness by starting to use eye creams now even way before you actually need them.It helps prep your skin for make-up You want to constantly protect this area of your face, especially when you apply make-up for the day. Because it’s so delicate, excessive use of strong products may aid in the deterioration of the skin around the area under your eyes. It is wise to apply an eye cream under your eyes before applying a foundation or concealer. The rubbing of sponges and brushes can also contribute to aging and wrinkles. Conclusion:More often than not, the first thing people notice in someone’s face is the eyes. It’s best to be mindful of the products you put on your face to make sure your skin remains glowing and vibrant. The skin under eyes is so delicate, so even if you do not see signs of aging yet, it’s still better to prevent these from happening by incorporating an eye cream to your daily skincare routine.

The best sunscreen for dry skin☀️
The best sunscreen for dry skin☀️
Y’all… Let me tell you how dry my skin gets. My skin gets so dry that it looks like my skin is actually flaking. I have struggled with dry skin my entire life and I hardly find any products that truly help my skin. I reached out to a friend who gave me a skin care routine and she suggested this sunscreen PURITO - Centella Green Level Unscented Sun SPF50+ it is honestly the best! Not only is it scent free but it hydrates my skin without burning it. I have high sensitivity to a lot of products and this is one that doesn’t make my skin irritated or break out. If you struggle with dry skin, try out this sunscreen! Not only does it help with the dryness but also you should always be protecting your face with sunscreen!!!
this is a DRAWSTRING ponytail 👀🔥
this is a DRAWSTRING ponytail 👀🔥
Drawstring ponytails have come a lonnnnng way! I have to admit, I never thought drawstring ponytails could look good, but bay-bee I was WRONG! I’m loving the #Indique - Remix Organic Curl Ponytail[products]#[FiveStars] First of all, it’s human hair, unlike a lot of ponytail extensions. All of your hair is protected in a little cap, which I love, and it’s versatile! One major note: when you receive this hair it’s not fluffed. I tried to finger comb it, and that wasn’t the best method as I had some shedding and tangling. However, when I sprayed this hair down with water I had NO issues! This hair is dyed, so some of the dye may transfer to your fingers while styling it. All of these styles were created with this ponytail 🙌🏾 It’s the perfect way for me to turn a bad hair day around real quick! I really appreciate seeing quality textured ponytail extensions on the market. Swipe through to see the styles! I even did a braid out on this ponytail 😍 BOMB! What’s your favorite style? Full styling guide on the blog, link in bio! #gifted
DON’T try these at home!
DON’T try these at home!
With so many self- proclaimed beauty gurus in the world today, it’s very easy to get sucked into the DIY trend. Most experts and skincare specialists will tell you these homemade concoctions are not as good as they are made to be. Here are 5 ingredients you should not put on your face and why. 1. Essential Oils- The fragrant portion of plants is what makes essential oils. Modern science has revealed how fragrant oils cause problems for the skin. In the long run components in essential oils can significantly irritate and damage the skin. 2. Lemon Juice 🍋- Lemons are extremely acidic, which will irritate your skin. You can experience excessive redness, dryness, and skin peeling. Using lemons on your skin can cause more damage then benefit to your skin. 3. Coconut Oil- This ingredient causes a lot of debate amongst my followers, but fact is a fact, coconut oil is highly comedogenic. This means that the oil clogs pores on your face. When you apply coconut oil to your face it lays on the surface and is not able to be absorbed into the skin due to its large molecules. It can cause breakouts, blackheads, and whiteheads. 4. Witch Hazel- Here is another debate stirring ingredient. A lot of my patients and followers swear by witch hazel because of its immediate results on absorbing oil on the skin. What they fail to understand that it is not only absorbing the excess oils, but it is also stripping your skin of its natural oils. This can be very damaging to your skin and it’s natural protecting barrier, causing unnatural sensitized and dry skin. 5. Toothpaste- Such a popular trend and so harmful to your skin. Toothpaste contains high levels of baking soda which will mess with your skin’s ph level. This can lead to redness and burning of the skin. Toothpaste is a horrible option for your blemishes and instead I would recommend THE inkey LIST - Succinic Acid Acne Treatment As tempting as it is to try natural remedies at home, do your skin a favor and resort to stabilized and researched ingredients and products.
My Top 5 Foundations for Oily Skin
My Top 5 Foundations for Oily Skin
Here are my top 5 foundations for oily/combination/acne prone skin! These are by no means my only favorite foundations, just the ones I keep going back to. 1. ESTĒE LAUDER - Double Wear Stay-in-Place Foundation This matte, oil-free foundation controls oil all day. It’s sweat, heat and humidity-resistant, waterproof and 24-hour colour true. With buildable, medium-to-full coverage that feels lightweight and so comfortable. No touchups needed. Best for hot weather/ holidays. The only Downside is that it doesn’t come with a pump 2. MAYBELLINE - Fit Me! Matte & Poreless Foundation This foundation is a must have if you are looking for a good drugstore option for oily skin. It’s super affordable and gives a beautiful finish without feeling heavy on the skin. 3. HUDA BEAUTY - Fauxfilter Foundation is perfect for you if you are looking for full coverage. Just a couple of pumps go a long way. However, the formula isn’t ideal for anyone with dry skin or for people sensitive to string fragrances. 4. L'ORÉAL - Infallible Pro-Matte Liquid Longwear Foundation This formula blends unbelievably well and you can build this to completely full coverage! ! I'm beyond impressed for this being drugstore. 5. The Ordinary - Colours Coverage Foundation with SPF 15 this is my everyday foundation and gives good enough coverage. I just have to mix two different shades to get my color as the range is quiet limited but for the price I pay, I don’t mind. Always stay away form words like “dewy”, “luminous”, “shiny” , “glowy” if you have oily skin. Let me know if you have any questions.
CMON MADDIE..... Really ? 😒
CMON MADDIE..... Really ? 😒
okay so i’m sorry for the light this week but i’m working on a work station. However this Morphe Maddie palette isn’t doing it for the me. In my opinion I believe to pull a good palette together is blend ability and good shimmer or glitters. The shimmers on the is so trash 🗑 sorry to say. i literally had to dig for a good creamy shine. However it isn’t a complete miss. The other colors did have some good pigment and my fav shade is the black shade. It was really dark and blendable. I would probably recommend this to someone with more fair skin because they pigments and shimmers would work better in their favor. Have you used this palette if yes tell me all about below, if no would you still wanna try it out and why ?
