moisture is important
CC: Hi guys! Let's talk about the importance of moisture while I do my nighttime routine. Moisture is key. When a pimple forms, it's a result as an overproduction of sebum, or oil. It is very common that acne prone skin is connected to very oily, or very dry skin. When your skin is oily, it's trying to replenish the lack of moisture in the skin. When your skin is very dry, it doesn't produce enough natural oils, and doesn't have enough support from a moisturizer. A common misconception with oily skin is that because it's so oily, it doesn't need a moisturizer. This will end up just dehydrating and making your skin more acne prone. With all of that said, moisture is the most important step in your routine. It is the key ingri=dient to healthy, glowy, and beautiful skin, So don't forget your moisturizer! Day AND night! Byee!!

5 Ways To Make Your Fall Skincare Routine Better
A new season always brings new changes to my acne-prone skin. In the summer, I’m usually sporting a lot of oil and shine with little dabs of sunspots and redness. So, to target these concerns, I follow a routine that is fortified with lightweight, oil-free products that are loaded with antioxidants and soothing ingredients to help neutralize free radical damage and help with redness. Whereas in the fall, my skin starts to show signs of dryness around my nose, chin, and lips. My Summer Routine KORA - Noni Bright Vitamin C Serum THE ORGANIC PHARMACY - Antioxidant Face Gel THE ORGANIC PHARMACY - Antioxidant Face Firming Serum 35ml YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superfood Air-Whip Moisture Cream TULA SKINCARE - Daily Sunscreen Gel Broad Spectrum SPF 30 This summer, my go-to vitamin C serum was from KORA Organics, which I loved because the formula has the perfect amount of slip to it and absorbed so nicely into my skin. It also helped brighten my skin and give it a glow. For extra antioxidant protection, I followed up with The Organic Pharmacy’s Antioxidant Face Gel, which has the texture of a basic serum and is packed with good-for-you ingredients to keep skin healthy and glowing. Then, I would seal in all that goodness with a lightweight gel moisturizer like Youth To The People’s Superfood Air-Whip Moisturizer, which has a lovely cooling effect on the skin and helps hydrate it without clogging the pores. At night, I would swap this moisturizer for The Organic Pharmacy’s Antioxidant Face Serum, which has the same texture as a face oil and I’d use to lock in moisture and deliver some extra antioxidants to the skin after a long day in the sun. For lip balm, my go-to was Vaseline’s Aloe balm, which is very soothing and refreshing. For sunscreen, TULA’s SPF 30 Sunscreen became my all-time favorite; it leaves the skin looking super glowy without peeling or leaving any white casts behind. My Fall Routine GOOD MOLECULES - Hyaluronic Acid Serum high - High Five Cannabis Seed Facial Moisturizer BIOSSANCE - Squalane+ Rose Vegan Lip Balm YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superberry Hydrate + Glow Dream Mask PACIfICA - Vegan Collagen Hydrating Milk Tonic Now that fall is upon us, I’ve begun incorporating more hydrating products into my routine. After my vitamin C serum, I’ve re-introduced Good Molecules’ Hyaluronic Acid Serum, which is super lightweight, not sticky at all, and leaves the skin dewy and hydrated. Instead of my lightweight moisturizer, I like to use a thicker cream like High Beauty’s High Five Moisturizer, which is very hydrating and keeps skin balanced—something that I desperately need as my skin starts to become drier and show more signs of redness. If my skin isn’t that dry, I’ll just use a face oil like my Organic Pharmacy Serum. In the winter, however, I’ll usually use both for added hydration and nourishment. Another way I’ve been adding some extra hydration into my routine is with products like Pacifica Beauty’s Milk Tonic, which is a hydrating toner-essence-hybrid that I love to use in my nighttime routine. I’ve found that it also makes for an excellent skin prep before makeup. For lips, I’ve already said goodbye to my Vaseline balm and replaced it with a thicker formula. My favorite heavy-duty balm is Biossance’s Rose Balm, which has the same consistency as a lip mask and really locks in moisture. On days where I need more hydration, I’ll also use Youth To The People’s Superberry Hydrate + Glow Overnight Mask, which is formulated with maqui, vitamin C, squalene, and hyaluronic acid to promote radiance and moisture in the skin.

Skin Care = Mama’s Self Care Journey
With many responsibilities as mothers, caregivers, women, we also have a responsibility of a healthy relationship with oneself. I have a beautiful son of eighteen months and in that time, I’ve really come to realize that I have neglected myself. My skin is probably dry to combination dry, due to the tiniest of spots on my T zone being oily. I’ve never really had issue with my skin until I woke up and realized, “Wow! I look as tired as I am!” and that sweet realization made me want to change my skin for the better. I’m down with skin care on a budget, but will probably end of splurging for the sake of hydration, decreased redness and skin irritation. Please let me know if you have any suggestions! Also, as I am a newbie, tell me how to use these products- I am shocked as how many products have no clear instructions. LA ROCHE-POSAY - Toleriane Hydrating Gentle Face Cleanser - I really love the lack of overpowering fragrance, although I’m not inherently against a scented product. This was one of the few cleaners that did not rip the hydration out of my skin almost immediately. ⭐️🧼 - I do have some interest in oil based cleansers, as I’m more dry - any suggestions? e.l.f. - Gentle Peeling Exfoliant - This was a product that I didn’t know I needed. I’ve always used products that didn’t adequately exfoliate and because so, layers of dead and unnecessary skin piled on my face. This did it’s job and left my skin soft and supple. PACIfICA - Vegan Collagen Hydrating Milk Tonic - The product really felt a bit drying, but it felt like it was doing it’s job? The jury is definitely still out on this one. ⭐️💦 - Any suggestion for a more hydrating toner that’s cruelty free? PACIfICA - Water Bounce Moisture Shot Booster Serum - This smells fantastic. Really. I added it as my last step in my skin care routine and it definitely took care of any lingering dryness on my forehead and cheeks. (Thank you winter in New England!) e.l.f. - Holy Hydration! Face Cream - This was a little bit of a disappointment for me, as I was suggested this as a Tatcha dupe and this is really sealing the realization that there really isn’t a true dupe for it. The smell is run of the mill, not bad, but the hydration definitely is far from holy. Seemed like a very basic cream, nothing special. LA ROCHE-POSAY - Toleriane Double Repair Face Moisturizer UV SPF 30 - This is a sunscreen that doesn’t break me out or irritate as bad as most so for my sensitive skin and the scent of zinc oxide isn’t in your face, love that. PACIfICA - Color Quench Lip Tint - I purchased the scent Guava Berry and it smells like a Starburst, isn’t a weird filmy consistency, and not super pigmented at all. If you want color pull off, this is a no, but I was only seeking hydration. Kind of wish it had some SPF though. 💗 Ella

TONERS VS. TONICS! WHAT SHOULD YOU USE?
let's clear some things up so you know what's right for your routine! the world of skincare continues to grow so it's in your best interest to do research and make sure you're using products that are good for you not because of hype! toners & tonics are both great skincare pick me ups but which one is for you? PLEASE DONT HESITATE TO ASK QUESTIONS! WHAT IS A TONER? toners are used after cleansing and take away left behind residue that your cleanser couldn't get to. It acts as a primer of your skin care routine so it can help prep for all the other products that will be used in your routine. some toners even help balance the skin's pH levels & minimize the LOOK of pores (doesn't actually shrink your pores that's impossible!) lastly, it can help with exfoliation to create a softer supple look to your skin! all of which are great but what if you don't need to exfoliate everyday cause you have drier skin? well.... WHAT IS A TONIC? even though the lines get blurred there are differences between toners and tonics. so speaking on tonics, I think of this as a first layer of moisture rather than exfoliation like a toner. tonics give a boost of moisture and help maintain hydration in the skin. they can aid in rejevunating tired, dull skin types. no SHAME! we all have bad skin days. SO... WHAT DO I USE? as I said before toners and tonics do have a lot in common but they have some soft differences so the biggest recommendation I can give is: - LOOK AT INGREDIENTS! - KNOW YOUR SKIN TYPE! - EXFOLIATION VS. HYDRATION! EXAMPLES: (both products are vegan, cruelty & alchol free) The Ordinary - Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution VERY POPULAR! Glycolic Acid offers exfoliating benefits also contains properties of aloe vera & ginseng for soothing moisture maintained. This is a great product but you NEED to use it carefully! This will TONE & BALANCE the skin. PACIfICA - Vegan Collagen Hydrating Milk Tonic NEW RELEASE! Vegan collagen supports skin elasticity while antioxidants & Hyaluronic Acid boosts and maintains hydration in the skin. This product is a new release but poses great benefits for those with drier skin! Mainly, take the time to get to know your skin. The world of skincare is growing by the MINUTE! The best kind of routine is one that you can create & trust on your own.
