How to Transition Your Skincare Routine from Summer to Fall

Hey Passionista!

I know it has been a while since I’ve posted a blog, but LIFE… I needed to take some time away from creating content which felt like all the time and enjoy the feeling of living in the moment without setting up a tripod or camera. I am struggling with finding a balance between running a business, being a influencer, and enjoying life. Please bare with me as I work through figuring this all out and gaining a new schedule.

I’ve recently starting working on a new partnership with one of my favorite brands, Make It Classy. I’ve created some fresh content that I’m excited to share with world. Make It Classy has given me the opportunity to be a guest blogger for the brand blog, “Beauty With Class“. My first blog post, “How to Transition Your Skincare Routine from Summer to Fall” launched on September 1st.

Head over to Make It Classy’s website to read the full blog post. Thank you for your support

Daily Skincare Practices to Achieve Clear Skin

Hey Passionista! 

I take pride in having healthy clear skin, but I can’t lie it takes having daily habits to keep my skin looking clean and clear. Over the years I have learned just how much drinking water impacts my skin. The more consistently I drink water the healthier I experience my skin being. My daily goal is to drink 64 fluid ounces of water. When I start slacking on my water intake, my face is sure to remind me to drink some water. 

Take a look at  my morning skincare routine. 

Here are 7 products I use on a daily basis and how they will help you achieve clear skin: 

#1 Dickinson’s Original Witch Hazel Gentle Balancing Toner

Witch Hazel helps to cleanse the skin, fight acne breakouts and keep and even skin tone. I can honestly use this product multiple times a day. 

#2 Neutrogena Hydro Boost Exfoliating Cleanser

If you are not using a gentle exfoliator daily, you should make sure that you exfoliate at least twice a week. Exfoliating the skin can fix uneven skin tones and keep your pores from getting clogged. 

#3 Youth to the People Superfood Cleanser

If you don’t do anything else at all, make sure you clean your face daily. Do it in the morning and at night. A good cleansing of the face with a facial brush will give your skin a thorough deep clean, naturally hydrate your skin, remove daily toxins and give you a natural glow. 

#4 111 Skin Hyaluronic Aqua Boost

My aesthetician put me on game about using hyaluronic acid  to improve skin elasticity, revitalize tired looking skin, and retain moisture below the surface of the skin. I added a Hyalurinoic acid serum to my skincare routine about 2 years ago and now I look for products that have it as an ingredient to ensure that I am giving my skin exactly what it needs. 

#5 Biossance Squalane Vitamin C Rose Oil

Rose oil is one of the best ways to keep your skin looking youthful. I don’t know about you, but I want the “foreva young” kind of skin. Using a face oil daily will stimulate the skin and give you a natural glow of clear skin. 

#6 ProX by Olay Advanced Facial Cleansing Brush System

A facial brush helps to minimize clogged pores and help smooth skin. It also creates a blissful experience for cleansing your face on a day basis. 

#7 Beauty by Earth Rose Quartz Facial Roller

Facial rollers are not a product you have to use everyday, but it has youthful benefits that will keep you skin looking youthful longer. Using a face roller will help reduce wrinkles and fine lines on the face and neck and well as promote blood circulation. I enjoy using my facial roller as a final step in my daily skincare routine.

What to put in a mini skincare fridge?

Hey Passionista! 

I can’t get over how much better my skincare journey has been since I started storing my products in a skincare fridge. The cooling sensation of a toner, cleanser, mask or face oil takes my skincare routine to a whole other level. When chilled skincare products have the potential to last longer, improve any puffiness, and show better results over time. Most of you don’t pay attention to this, but most of your skincare products have an expiration date or a 2 year shelf life. By keeping those products cool, it’ll keep those active ingredients working longer to give you flawless skin at every use. 

I’ve been enjoying more raw skincare products and those have to be refrigerated. Most of them will go bad within 2 days if not refrigerated. I also prefer to refrigerate my at-home made masks in my skincare fridge to help get more than one use out of them. Another great item to store in a skincare fridge is sheet masks. There is nothing more blissful than a cold sheet mask laying on your face for skin that glows. I even store my facial roller in the skincare fridge so that it cold during every use. 

Applying cold pressure to the skin helps prevent wrinkles. It’s important to start great skincare and wellness habits early in life to prevent any problems from appearing. I plan on having flawless skin and a healthy lifestyle for as long as I live.
