SKINCARE ROUTINE: AM & PM
Updated: Oct 13, 2019
Does anyone else feel that when you’re taking care of your skin and it looks really glowy, that you could take over the world? Because, same.
I thoroughly believe that what you put into your body (yes, this circles back to nutrition) has the greatest effect on your skin. Maybe genetics, maybe environmental, but ultimately how YOU treat YOUR body.
Maybe it's genetics (thanks Mare & Bri) but I never really struggled with acne or any funky skin happenings. In middle/high school when everyone is weird and hormonal, I had subtle bumps on my forehead but that was quickly regulated with a low dose of an oral contraceptive birth control pill. And yes – I get random blemishes, but so does everyone!
This brings me to the morning AND evening skincare routines that have been working for me. I don’t do anything wild (nor expensive) because there are SO many lovely products out there.
This is my time for self-care, exercise, and being my own hype woman to crush the day. Working two jobs – corporate job in the fashion industry, as a an online health & fitness coach, and running a blog myself – you just need to do whatever it takes to keep you on the ball. I also seek out products that are specific to busy, active ladies that will help protect our skin for long hours so we stay looking glowy, fresh, pretty, duh!

We all know our lives are variable. Sometimes we want to be couch potatoes working on our blogs or watching reality tv, sometimes we want to go to a swanky wine bar, sometimes we want to hit up the gym or workout at home, or go to dinner with a friend, or visit the parents… you just never know! I am a planner so this has helped me greatly in being successful and still tackling my priority list. No matter what, I make sure to attend to my face/skin in the evening. Living in New York City, it is vital to ‘wash off the day.'
Products: whatever make up wipes I have, Arbonne face wash, Arbonne night defense, retinol under eye cream, rose water, sunless tanner

- Add retinol under eye cream

I enjoy this routine and so does my skin. I circle back to saying - when you feel confident about your glowing skin, you feel like you can take over the world!
