Call me naive, but I honestly thought that my lifestyle would never catch up with my skin. I’ve always been told I have a very youthful appearance, and that I aged very well. Like most others out there, I do a little bit of cleansing, drink a little water, and live my life without really thinking about skincare too much.
It’s getting close to that time of the year again—that magical time when all the best goodies you’ve been yearning to buy for yourself finally go on sale!
Makeup primers are one of the most essential steps in your makeup routine. If you don’t use a foundation primer, your makeup is more likely to look cakey, show imperfections, and wear off easily, because a face primer is what sets your makeup and allows it to have that matte finish that we all strive for. Each primer has different effects that can color correct, reduce fine lines, and give a natural, oil free glow. Sephora is going to be your ultimate stop to find the best correcting primers on the market for that all day look you’re going for. You don’t need to be a makeup artist to get beautiful skin, or the perfect look you desire.
Most of us know the stresses of a busy life, whether you are a buzzing business professional or a stay-at-home mother. As if your work is not demanding enough, you must also look well-kept for your career or just for your self-esteem. It is also in human nature to want to look good to attract a mate, yet we feel overwhelmed with time-management as a huge factor in our day-to-day responsibilities.
Winter is a time when snow gently hits the ground, where hot cocoa is brewed up by barrelful, and where people get to spend time with their loved ones. It’s a wonderful time for people who enjoy baking cookies, itchy sweaters, and cozy times by the fire. Great as winter may be for your memories, it’s not too great for your skin.
Winter is, undoubtedly, one of our skin's worst enemies. The cold weather can do a lot of damage on its own, and even more if you don't do anything about it.
I have always struggled with a spot (sometimes dozens) here and there. There was a specific time in my life where my life felt broken, my skin was oily, I was breaking out plus a lot of drama arose. My confidence was low and I wanted to sort my skin out, I bought all the 'popular' and 'best' products on the market. Three different cleansers, two different face creams, some serum and so many face masks that to be honest, I did not even understand what they did. My skin got dry, and when I say dry I mean to the point at which my skin was peeling (I know, it's gross). For ages, I thought that this must be normal and it will probably get better. I saw all these online influencers and celebrities using the same products as me and their skin was glowing. How come it did not work for me? I kept persisting, I bought more products, slowly aggravating my skin more and more, in no way helping myself out. There came to a point where all my products ran out and so did my money. I stopped clogging my skin up with products.
I am 30 years old, and ever since I was 12, I have struggled with acne. My skin has always been a mess, even during times when most people's’ skin seemed to calm down. When I started to get into my 20s, I assumed that the acne would subside, but no, I wasn’t that lucky.
