Things to Spend Your Money on If You Have Any Kind of Anxiety
Since I’m writing for the Psyche section right now, I wanted to talk anxiety. You can’t realistically say you have zero stressors in life nor any kind of anxiety. I mean, we’re in the modern age where people are screaming at you things to BUY to compensate for your out-of-control-mind. THAT’s where we’re at in 2019.
Best Primers for Your Skin’s Needs
Primers may just be my favorite step to makeup and depending on which you purchase. It can also feel like the last step to your skincare, what with so many primers reaping the benefits of skincare whilst also getting your skin ready to soak up makeup and make it last nowadays. Some people find priming an annoying waste of time and money (THEY are probably both these things). I do not hang out with such negative people. Always kick it with people that bring your priming needs up, not down! If you really want to keep your mask on all day you just HAVE to do it. It’s one of those things—like buying tampons or eating healthy for a day after New Year’s. You just HAVE to! And if you ever wondered how to achieve the most flawless finish whilst also attending to your individualized skin needs, I’ve got your face covered (full coverage, of course).
My Holy Grail Skincare Regimen
I roll out of bed in the morning (sometimes mid-afternoon, who am I kidding?) and literally what I am most excited about other than what's for breakfast is what products will quench my skin's thirst first. I have soooo many steps and it sometimes feels like it takes an hour before even putting on my makeup but it is way worth it.
Best of Beauty 2017!
1. Fresh Seaberry Oil Cleanser I can honestly and wholeheartedly say I have NO idea what I was doing with my life before I found this cleanser. The thing I love about this cleanser is one; that it’s an oil and feels luxurious on your face when you stumble on home less sober than you'd care to admit at 2 AM, not wanting to make an attempt at taking your smokey eye off. Two; it literally MELTS away all eye makeup, including waterproof mascara (and I LAYYYERR that stuff up), and thirdly; it is not in the slightest harsh to the touch. From someone that has sensitive skin—bold-faced flare ups and all—I can truthfully say that this gives me life. I have tried amazing cleansers such as Lancome’s Radiance cleanser, Purity by Philosophy, Clean and Clear over the years and the list goes on…and noneee of these compare to this oil. I will say, however, I would not recommend for acne prone skin because I do not have acne prone skin and it gave ME tiny under-the-surface zits. My main concern is keeping my skin hydrated and healthy though, and because it has Seaberry in it, its main focus is to moisturize whilst cleansing. If you are looking for something that will brighten the skin and fight breakouts, look no further than the Radiance Cleanser by Lancome.
