Skincare Products for My Maskne

Hello Loves! ʕ≧ᴥ≦ʔ
I am finally coming back with a form of content that is hopefully somewhat helpful! I can now safely say that I am now ready to get back to working on my blog and creating pieces that I enjoy. A little life update: I am pretty much done with this year’s application cycle, and am currently waiting to hear back from a few more schools. Therefore, I have more time and willpower to get back on track with writing more for M.A.N., editing, and other hobbies.

Today’s post is all about skincare, and the products that I have been using to help with my maskne. Before we get into these products, please know that I have sporadically used them prior to my recent breakouts from the masks. However, I have a bad habit of keeping up with my skincare routine until breakout occurs. I am currently still struggling with these annoying comedones (white and blackheads), but these products have really proven their importance in my routine. Overall, my skin is getting progressively better with the help of these products and some behavioral changes.

How I’m Fighting Dry Skin

Happy Tuesday Loves~

Texas and winter don’t mix very well: it’s either early or really delayed. With winter finally upon us Texans, my skin has been getting crazy dry. I usually experience this when coming home from a trip, but the wind child is killer on my face and hands.

Now that today’s my first day back to school, I will be facing the cold and nature way more than I’ve been. Thankfully, these six products have been saving me from painfully dry skin.

Why You Should Start Investing in a Skincare Regimen

It is clinically proven that you cannot reverse the effects of aging, without going under the needle. Therefore, the only way to manage wrinkles, crow’s feet, under-eye bags, etc. is by preventing such effects. Your skin mainly craves and is deprived of hydration, moisture, and nutrients.

Currently, skin care is the biggest cosmetic trend, especially in South Korea. From sheet masks to essences, Westerners want-in on the secrets of looking younger, longer.

In South Korea, they are obsessed with their 10-step skin-care regimen. Don’t panic! You should customize your skin care regimen to fit your skin’s unique needs. Some beauty bloggers have as low as 5 steps, while some are known to have 12-13 steps. It is not expected to suddenly splurge on a bunch of high-end skin care products, but you can start small with some of the basic steps. At first, it may seem like a hassle, but your skin deserves your upmost attention.

Not to mention, there are a lot of drug-store products that can do wonders for stressed out college students.

ScentBird Review

Happy Tuesday Loves!

**A/N: Pictures will be added later! I haven’t had time to edit them yet, but they’ll be up soon!**

Scentbird is an innovative company which has optimized the use of perfume and cologne throughout the day. If you have ever bought a fragrance bottle, or even a bottle of body spray, you are aware of how fragile, and bulky the packaging is for some of them — making it difficult to carry it with you on a daily basis. To address this problem, Scentbird has made a traveling case (similar to that of a retractable kabuki brush) which allows you to easily stash your favorite perfume or cologne in your purse, backpack, car, gym bag, etc.  Continue reading “ScentBird Review”
