Is it just me, or does it seem like January is the longest month of the year? It’s like as soon as the New Year starts we’re stuck in this never-ending lull where everything has just begun, but nothing has really started yet. Now that it has finally come to a long-awaited end, I can share with you my January favorites! I got a few fun things to try out around Christmas and some of them have made it to my favorites list so let’s check them out, shall we?
We’re in the peak of winter, and while the cold never bothered me anyway (I’ll see myself out now) it definitely bothers my skin. Having sensitive skin in cold weather can lead to painful chapping, dry patches, and misery all around. Certainly doesn’t help when I get breakouts and makeup will not lay right to cover them. However, I think after a few years of being into this skincare thing and some trial an error I’ve found a routine to beat those dry-skin-scalies.
Hello again, lovely people of the internet. It’s been a long time since I’ve posted anything, which is a shame, but I’ve been absent for good reason. I’m in the process of writing my first YA fantasy story and was trying to update my site as you can see so I was a bit MIA. However, I’m back with my November favorites to finish off the year strong and welcome in the holiday season.
Let’s face it (pun not intended), people don’t take care of their skin as well as they should. So many people think they can simply wash their face with whatever soap they have and they’ll be fine. Or worse, acne prone people will reach for the peroxide or salicylic acid that causes more harm than good. It especially doesn’t help if you’re on strong acne medications to help battle those pesky breakouts, which 9 out of 10 times leaves you with sensitive skin, pealing, and dry. Seeing as I’m in the latter category, I thought I’d share a few of my favorite cleansers to help battle the breakouts and help to soothe irritated skin.
