Eczema Struggles? Try This!

Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream

Dry skin comes with its struggles all year round but things can get really bad once the winter rolls around. The cold temperatures, harsh winds and dry indoor heat can wreak havoc on dry skin and cause all sorts of nasty skin struggles. One of the most common (and annoying!) of winter skin struggles is eczema. Millions of people struggle with itchy, scaly and often irritating rashes of tiny bumps that can make life a living hell with no sign of relief in sight.

If you follow me on Snapchat, then you’ve probably seen my recent pics and videos of my extreme eczema flare up this winter. It seemed to come out of nowhere once I returned home from Gen Beauty and it spread pretty quickly from my arms, to my legs and even my face. Almost overnight, my skin went from perfectly fine to a burning, itching sensation that was flaking, peeling and red as a tomato. Ouch!

Lancome Advanced Genifique Youth Activating Concentrate Review

Lancome Advanced Genifique Youth Activating Concentrate

Before turning 25, my skincare routine was super simple. Just cleanser and moisturizer. Now I use everything under the kitchen sink because my skin doesn’t bounce back as easily as it used to. I could repeatedly fall asleep in my makeup without my face falling off the next day. Or spend days chilling in the sun without sunscreen (the horror!) or a care in the world about dark spots, fine lines or wrinkles. Long gone are those days. Sigh.

Now, I have a complex skincare routine that includes everything from masks to eye cream and even serum. Yes serum. Although I still look like a baby my dry skin is already starting to show some slight (yet majorly annoying) signs of aging like increased dryness and fine lines.

Peter Thomas Roth Acne-Clear Invisible Dots Review

Peter Thomas Roth Acne-Clear Invisible Dots

Sundays are all about skincare and Peter Thomas Roth is giving me the skin fix of a lifetime. After a fun weekend in LA, my skin was beginning to suffer a bit. Nothing too major. Just the annoying rash of tiny bumps all over–like an allergic reaction or something. I haven’t been using anything new lately but I drank a lot more alcohol and indulged in a ton of greasy food and loads of carbs everyday while on vacation and I think my skin is starting to feel the effects of it. Don’t you hate that?

Ipsy Generation Beauty LA 2016 Round Up

Gen Beauty LA 2016 Swag Bags

If I had to sum up this year’s Ipsy Generation Beauty LA in one word it would be, “Whoa!” It was a ton of fun but boy was it overwhelming! This was my first time ever hitting a beauty conference so when I received an email for an exclusive invite to hit Gen Beauty LA this year I nearly jumped out of my skin. Just the thought of rubbing elbows with some of the most popular beauty bloggers and vloggers had my stomach doing backflips. It was all so new to me!

Although I invited my BFFs to journey to LA with me, the ticket excluded a plus one so I showed up solo–like a deer in headlights. LA is huge and the venue where the conference took place was so confusing that I showed up super late. So late that I missed my favorite YouTuber, MakeupShayla. * cue the Kim Kardashian cry face and violins *

Garnier SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water Review

Garnier SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water

When I actually have enough time to sit in the mirror and lay out a full face of makeup it’s pure bliss! It’s just so much fun whipping up creative eye looks, highlighting and contouring, popping on a little blush and lots of highlight. It really puts me in the zone. Ironically, though, the best part about getting all dolled up is taking it all off at the end of the day and hopping in the sack. Ahhhh, sweet relief!

Urban Decay Brightening & Tightening Complexion Primer Potion Review

Urban Decay Brightening & Tightening Complexion Primer Potion

Ahh, primer. I remember when I used to think that primer was completely unnecessary but now I can’t live without it. Whether you’re dry or oily, primer is an absolute must because it helps your makeup glide on like butter, last longer and just generally look better. There’s a lot of great primers out there but my current fave is theUrban Decay Brightening & Tightening Complexion Primer Potion.

Ulta Glowing Skin Haul

Ulta Glowing Skin Haul

I love makeup as much as the next girl but the older I get and the more I learn about skincare, the more I fall in love with it. A beat face is always eye catching but what truly sets it off is a clear, glowing complexion. Because what good is beautiful art painted on a canvas that’s dull and lackluster?

That’s why I’m loving that January is Glowing Skin month at Ulta. Winter can wreak havoc on skin so it’s important to arm yourself with the essentials to fight those winter skin blues so all your new makeup from Christmas can go on smoothly and help you look even more flawless.
