Skincare Must Haves


If there was an advice I could give someone in their 20s, Is to take care of your skin early on. Your older self will thank you later! You will never be too young to start.

I was in my late 20s when I started taking care of my skin and it was after I developed adult acne. I had clear skin during my teenage years, but after my third pregnancy, hormones went hay wire and I broke out drastically. I panicked and went to pick up the only thing I knew would work…(only because celebrities were doing infomercials about Pro Active, so I was sold!) To make a long story short, I am allergic to benzoyl peroxide. Didn’t realize at the time how many acne treatments are out there with that ingredient.

I am now in my late 30s and I finally am happy with my skin. I owe it all to a strict skin care routine (yes, I get lazy sometimes and want to skip steps), but consistency is key to see and notice results. The products I have been using consistantly are the Drunk Elephant T.L.C. Framboos Glycolic Night Serum, Skin Laundry Restoring Night Serum, Drunk Elephant C-Firma Day Serum and because you can’t forget about the lips, is the Jack Black Intense Therapy Lip Balm with SPF 25. These products I use on a daily, day and night, while I also incorporate other products, like face oils and moisturizers, these are the only ones that I don’t rotate at all.
