This year, I started incorporating witch hazel into my everyday beauty routine. As a skincare fanatic constantly trying new products daily, I was astounded to learn that a guy friend of mine (who isn’t gay by the way) knew of this holy grail product that I had been living years without! Now, I can’t imagine getting through the day without using it. Honestly, I don’t even know how we got onto the topic, but we started talking about our skincare regimen and this casually came up in conversation. I am so glad it did!
Lip service please! Chapped lips is an issue I’ve dealt with for longer than I can remember. Just when I thought things couldn’t get any worse, moving to the desert unfortunately exacerbated the issue. With that said, I knew I had to quickly find products that would not only heal, but also hydrate my lips, and keep them healthy overall. If this sounds like a problem you deal with regularly, you’re in luck because I’ve done all the experimenting for you. Say hello to a pretty pout with my favorite lip treatments and simple lip care routine 🙂
This Sunday is National Dry Shampoo Day! Did you know that using dry shampoo has many great benefits? Not only does it save so much time, it also works wonders to keep hair looking and smelling fresh in between washes. While my mom always taught me to wash my hair everyday, I learned in recent years that over-washing can actually be detrimental. To be honest, I’ve always been a bit of a germaphobe in the sense where I wouldn’t feel comfortable getting into bed before a full shower. When I went blonde, my stylist suggested that I wash my hair only 2-3 times a week, and use dry shampoo in between washes to help maintain color among other things. To be honest, the thought gave me much anxiety (lol)!
In addition to playing dress up, I occasionally enjoy experimenting with new makeup trends and products. It’s been a while since I’ve done a creative makeup look and I am itching to try something different soon! While looking at inspiration for my next project, I wanted to share some of my favorite hot trends worth trying this Spring. Let’s get our creative juices flowing, shall we? 🙂
One of the questions I get asked often is how I maintain such a perfect tan all the time. Today is the day I’m going to spill my secret! Before we get deep into it though, I must admit that it’s not difficult to get a real tan living in Palm Springs. Just being out in the pool for 30 minutes every now and then or walking the dog regularly (with SPF of course) will get me a good amount of color.
Recently, I started getting monthly facials with a local esthetician because there are some skin concerns I wanted to address, such as hormonal acne and redness. As I get older, I’m also putting in more effort to take better care of my skin. Along with facials, I’ve been trying a lot of new skin care products so far this year, and wanted to do a quick update on my latest faves!
