I know these past couple of months have thrown everyone of their regular routines, but I’ve been using this time to create a new and healthier routine. Meaning more working out, more walks with my dog, eating healthier foods and working on new projects!
My new found hobby during this time has been road biking! My mom has been an avid cyclist, mostly mountain biking, for years now. So I hopped on one of her bikes and have been loving it ever since!
She has this super cute cycle clothing line called MAD Shredders, so I just had to share! Fashion isn’t only for day to day activities, but it can be for exercise too!
Here are a few of my favorite MAD Shredders cycle kit designs!
Hope everyone is staying safe and healthy! During our quarantining I’m trying to do my best at taking extra care of myself, including my skin. A big part of this is proper diet, lots of water and most importantly good skincare! I wanted to share my current must haves by one of my favorite brands Image Skincare. I’ve been a lover of this line for around 5 years now and am obsessed with their ORmedic line. My absolute must haves are the lip balm, it keeps my lips moisturized all day! And the total resurfacing mask, minimizes my pores, softens my skin and improves my skin tone.
I use the face wash morning and night, followed by the vitamin C. In the mornings I’ll use the SPF after the vitamin C.
2 or 3x a week I’ll alternate between the exfoliating wash and exfoliating mask to keep my skin smooth and glowy!
My tips are usually based around our skin, and that is because having healthy skin is important and it boosts confidence! I’m going to share a few tips that I have learned throughout the years that seem to help. 🙂
Always wash your face in the morning and night. Do not sleep in your makeup ever! If you had a long night and are too lazy to wash your face with a cleanser, at least use a face wipe. I have learned from past experience that going to bed without washing your face can easily cause a breakout in the morning.
Allow each serum to completely set before applying another. For my daily skin care routine I use a lot of different items. So if you apply multiple serums make sure to let each individual serum sit on your skin for at least a full minute before applying your moisturizer or another serum. This allows your skin to absorb more of the good stuff.
Use a serum! If you do not use a serum, you should! They are great ways to target specific problem areas with your skin. I believe the serum is one of the most important parts to my skincare routine. I tend to use a brightening serum to reduce any discoloration on my skin. But they have serums to target any problem you may have with your skin.
Everyone knows this, but always wear a SPF. I use SPF15 every single day, wether I am going to be outside or not. I have a fairly darker skin complexion so I tend to use a lower SPF, but any bit helps! Wearing SPF will help protect your fragile skin from the sun, and It helps protect your skin from aging as fast. ( I luckily do not have that problem yet)
I hope you found these tips helpful! I know a few may be some pretty common things heard around the beauty world, but they really do make a difference!
