Best Clay Masks For Combination Skin
Clay masks are becoming more and more popular in the world of skin care. However, no matter the type of mask, people who suffer from having the worst of both worlds with both oily and dry areas on their face, need a product that will be effective for both of these issues.
Acne: It's Not Me, It's You
Ever since I can remember, I have struggled with acne. It's been in different forms, but nonetheless, it's acne. Lately, within the past couple months I have been having an extremely difficult time handling my acne. This acne is worse than the acne I had when I was a pre-pubescent teenager. It is the final straw. I have to end this.
Why Hair Is Much More Important Than It Seems
Hair: people usually have a love-hate relationship with it. To some people, it's whatever or a nuisance. Personally, my hair has always been important to me. Since I was a child, I had long hair that extended past my behind. It was like a security blanket. In high school, I would always have my hair down, covering my face when I wanted. It helped me with my insecurities about my acne, and my face in general. It also helped when I felt self-conscious about my body. I would just simply bring my hair to the front, and hide what I didn't want people to see. For school homecomings and proms, my hair curled to perfection, and gave me a boost of confidence. My hair was like my trademark. I was told multiple times that people can identify in a crowd just by looking at my hair. For the longest time, my long locks had meant something to me. It was more of a part of me than just the fact it was on my head.

Best Natural Deodorants You Can Buy
Going all-natural with your goodies has become the new way to show your support for Mother Earth and your own health. It makes sense to go natural, too. It seems like every other day, another additive is cited as a cause of cancer, diabetes, or dementia.
Tattooed and Still a Lady
Anyone who has ever been tattooed knows the stock phrases that other people will use to judge your choice to ink a design onto your body. "That is going to look so bad when you are older." "Aren't you going to regret that?" "How is that going to look on your wedding day?" And similar lines to that effect. One of the more prominent ones for me is the fact that my tattoos somehow make me "less of a lady"—tattoos in themselves are apparently "masculine" things to have, and proper ladies shouldn't have them. Today, I am gonna walk through my basic issues with those statements, one lady-like step at a time.
What's In My Makeup Bag?
Before we delve into my foundation-stained makeup bag, I should inform you that the products mentioned below will most likely not be new (to the majority of you) as most of them were released a long time ago. The products mentioned below are my personal favourites that I have been using for a couple of months (if not years).
The Story About My Acne
I was laying in bed on a Saturday morning, as I stretched my legs to the edge of the bed. I slowly propped myself up into a sitting position and I was startled to see my reflection in the mirror that was hanging on the wall facing towards me. My face had a completely different texture, from the last time I had seen myself. “Since when did my face get this terrible?” I wondered as I stroked the numerous inflamed red bumps that formed on the surface of my skin. The sides of my cheeks, my forehead, and my nose were completely covered in acne. I quickly looked away from the mirror in disgust and I made my way towards the bathroom. I begin washing my hands, trying to avoid thinking about the condition of my face; however, the bathroom mirror never lies. This time, I was much closer to my reflection and my acne was ten times more visible and more apparent. I looked away from the mirror again. I did not want to see myself anymore, nor did I want anyone else to see me.

How To Home Spa Day
On a rare day, my husband is home all day long. He lovingly gives me the opportunity to have some time to myself. I try to allow my husband the same luxury as well, especially because we mostly care for our son ourselves. When we decide we are going to give the other the day, we can use it any way we like. I personally, like to stay in and have a home spa day.
Magnetic Eyelashes: Are They Worth It?
I love fake eyelashes. I think they pull together any makeup look and can make you more glamorous in an instant. Also, as a young adult I keep up with many social media platforms, so it was only a matter of time before I heard about magnetic lashes. These are meant as an alternative to the traditional strip lash for people who want fake eyelashes but can't deal with the glue.
Winter is coming! As promised, here is a Winter Blues look for you guys. As you saw on my Insta, this is a nice cool toned eye look with a neutral lip and a touch of frosted gloss.
