Protecting Your Skin
🌼 I have combo skin leaning more dry (probably because I live in Southern California which is essentially a coastal desert and also full of smog and sun so I need all the protection I can get) 🌼 My skin is currently in a pretty good place where it falls more in the normal range but I do still get occasional breakouts and bouts of oiliness and dryness 🌼 Here’s some of my favorite products for protecting my skin: 🌼 Krave Beauty Matcha Hemp Hydrating Cleanser: This is a great affordable gel cleanser that’s packed with antioxidants. Anything which Matcha in it is going to be packed with antioxidants. Hemp is also a great ingredient for keeping the skin soothed and hydrated. I like to use this as a morning cleanse or a second evening cleanse. 🌼 Youth to the People Suberberry Hydrate + Glow Dream Mask: This stuff is magic. It contains Maqui Berry which is actually the most antioxidant rich fruit in the world as well as vitamin C and moisturizing Squalane. I use this at night after my moisturizer and it leaves my skin feeling so soft and bright. My favorite mask of all time. 🌼 Farmacy Very Cherry Bright Serum: This is an awesome vitamin C serum to protect your skin during the day from pollutants, UV rays, blue light, etc. I really like this for my combo skin because it’s a lightweight gel that contains four different types of hyaluronic acid and keeps my skin hydrated and plump but not oily or sticky. I use this every morning after my toners and before oils/moisturizers. 🌼 Purito Green Level Safe Sun: Never forget sunscreen. It’s the absolute most important product you can use to protect your skin. I love this because it’s affordable, lightweight, and doesn’t leave a white cast. I apply this after moisturizer in the mornings (and don’t forget to reapply every 2 hours)

DRY SKIN TRY THESE TIPS!
Do’s and DON’Ts for DRY skin that will change your skincare life! Hello all my fellow dry skin babes. This one is for you! I’ve got to say, dry skin is relatively new to me. I always had more normal to oily skin and then I moved to San Francisco and for whatever reason my skin is pretty dry now. I’ve learned how to take real good care of my skin and maintain moisture to keep my dry skin as happy as it can be. SO here’s some DO this and DON’T YOU DARE do that tips. DO ￼￼Use a gentle and hydrating cleanser. (Milk makeup vegan milk cleanser) ￼￼If you’re going to tone, please look for more hydrating toners. (Puristry) ￼￼LAYER UP! Layer your hydration with different skincare products like serums, face oils, and moisturizers. ￼￼EXFOLIATE. Get that layer of dead skin off! all the hard work of layering hydration won’t absorb into your skin. ￼￼Use products with hydrating/moisture retaining ingredients like; Hyaluronic Acid, Ceramides, squalene and Honey. (Honey and Ceramide will change ya skincare game!) DON’T ￼￼Over exfoliate. This is just going to cause irritation and breakouts, so now on top of dry skin you have broken out and angry skin. Keep exfoliation in your routine for 1-2x a week. ￼￼Stay away from harsh ingredients. Ingredients like Benzyl proxide, Salicylic Acid, Alcohol etc. can dry you out, so use it in moderation. ￼￼Don’t over do it. Getting rid of dry skin takes time! Keep a steady routine and you will start to see results. ￼￼Wear matte makeup! This will add to your dry skin. My best advice is to wear a hydrating primer and then you can go in with a matte foundation. Try to keep away from setting powders. (HG Laura Mercier translucent powder is made for oily skin! Only making you dry skin babes ever more dry) ￼￼best of all, don’t be lazy. You can’t fix your skin if you aren’t consistent and keep up a routine. **Dry skin can often appear as oily skin, so if you start to get really oily and its pretty far from your normal, then keep that in mind. When our skin is so dry it starts to produce natural oils to replenish the moisture and essentially fix itself. Dry skin can be so severe that our skin starts producing these oils like crazy. I can sit here and really get into it, but I know I’ll bore you and you’ll just skip through it. So follow these go to and simple tips to be on your way to balance and “normal” skin! May the hydration forever be with you 😉 💦

Nighttime Routine and Skin Journey
Hey everyone! Just wanted to talk about my routine at the moment and my skincare journey. I started having acne my sophomore year of college and it became exponentially worse. After trying numerous prescribed and over the counter creams, gels, and pills, I started on Accutane. I was on this HORRIBLE prescription for about 8 months and experienced terrible symptoms. My acne cleared and dark spots diminished. During this time, and some time after, I was using Cerave face wash and cream twice a day. The cream would often burn upon application due to the sad state of my dehydrated skin When I started to move for work (multiple places with various climates) my acne came back about 80% full force. I tried more creams and purchased the Clarisonic cleansing brush which made my acne worse. At this point, I’m 193730% done with ingesting chemicals and smearing them on my face. I’ve transitioned to all natural/Vegan products and noticed a huge difference: my skin is no longer dry/tight and it feels healthier. This being said, I still have the majority of my breakouts. The three pictures after my products were taken a week(ish) ago and the last picture was when I had next to no acne (post accutane and pre work travel). After using all natural/low waste products by Meow Meow Tweet (a brand I love) I’m looking to mix it up again (with other low waste/ethical/all natural brands and products). Recently my night time routine is the following Face wash: raw honey (wet face and apply about 1 tsp of honey and rub into face like you would any other face wash then rinse) meow meow tweet - GERANIUM PALMAROSA Face Toner I like this product: the smell is nice, it’s refreshing, and I think its helped my skin some. I don’t know that I’m obsessed, I’m definitely open to other toners. meow meow tweet - JUNIPER CARROT SEED face oil I actually do LOVE this product. It’s super moisturizing and has most definitely played a role in fixing my dry skin to feel more nourished and healthy. It leaves a nice glow and isnt greasy or sticky. Absorbs really well and has a wonderful smell. AMAZING. YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superberry Hydrate + Glow Dream Mask honestly, I don’t get the hype over this product. It makes me break out and I’ve tried to give it a month+ to see if there is something more to be gained from this product. It has a nice smell and luxurious texture. One of the reasons I keep it in my routine is because of its vitamin C and hyaluronic acid, among other wonderful things, I don’t get from my other products meow meow tweet - SPOT SERUM LOVE. This product is awesome. It works great for my cystic acne. The downside is it doesn’t do much for my smaller pimples or blackhead/whiteheads. It also runs out fairly quickly for the price. Let me know what products work for you!

Brand Review: Youth to the People
Hey dudes! Today I’m doing something a little different, by reviewing a BRAND instead of a bunch of products. I wanted to talk about a few key points that this brand values, as well as why I support them and keep buying their products. Keep reading to find out more! PS — this is not sponsored or paid, and none of my YTTP products were gifted by the brand. We’ve never worked together, but I do really enjoy them. You can find most of this info on their website, but I wanted to pull out a few talking points that I find important. When Greg & Joe founded YTTP, they had help from their grandmother Eva & their Aunt Lisa, as well as Greg’s mom, Lisa. Women have always been important to their growth! Youth to the People has always been about the community, supporting non-profits and activists. They work towards inclusion and social change, and often challenge the “status quo.” They work to reduce their carbon footprint and also support young artists in communities! Ethos: — skincare for all, meaning all genders, all skin types, and all people! — consciously sourced ingredients, all made in California and paired with vegan actives — conscious consumption: leaving the world better than you found it — vegan and cruelty free: animals are not ingredients! Sustainability: — glass packaging means it won’t leech chemicals into the product like plastic can, and it can be recycled and reused way more times than plastic! — sustainable formulas that are safe for the environment, even after they are washed down the drain. They always feature diverse groups of people, including ethnicity and age variants, on their website and social media. During the current Covid-19 crisis, they are making appropriate comments online and supporting healthcare and frontline workers. Their products are consistently fantastic. I have used the cleanser, toner, both moisturizers, the oil, and the dream mask. All of them hold up as some of the greatest products I’ve tried, and I am always excited for new launches. The adaptogen cream is rich and soothing, and hydrating like their adaptogen mist. The mist is the perfect pick me up for any time of day! And the dream mask is, well, dreamy. It plumps my skin overnight and doesn’t leave me greasy. The kombucha toner is my holy grail exfoliant as of now, and I don’t see that changing soon. The cleanser is a staple I haven’t had in my routines in a while (I do own a back up) as well as the kale moisturizer. Sometimes I just like trying out new brands! If you haven’t tried anything from YTTP, I suggest you pick up some minis or a kit from their website. They’re truly a remarkable brand, and supporting them = supporting tons of organizations that help marginalized communities and people in need. 5/5 would recommend this brand to everyone!
