Masking for the win!!

Every time my skin behaves, I do a little happy dance because if like me you have acne, you know how real the struggle can be. One of the steps that I have taken is to mask my face 2-3 times a week. This may actually seem a lot to people but it has been working for my skin… To keep it calm. I am still learning to manage my skin and show up in the best way possible and that has meant listening to what my skin needs.

How I am choosing a dermatologist

The year is 2020, I finally promised myself that I would go see a dermatologist. Not because my acne is getting worse, but just because I recognize the wealth of experience and insight that they could add to my skin care…and also acne. Quarantine had me learn a whole lot of things, including but not limited to how ill informed and under researched my skin care practices had been over the years. I literally cringe every time I go through my skin care tab on my blog…. but again trust the process.

Do I apologize or do I just say hi and spam you with long overdue content. Welcome back back to my little space on the internet where we share all things lifestyle. I have been geeking about skin lately and I am more than excited to bring you the skin series on Instagram. This week I just wanted o show yo my skin care shelf and the products that I have and take you a little bit behind the thought process of getting those products.

basic skin care routine EP 2

I think the last time I was on here is probably 3 weeks ago. I decided to go on an unannounced break that if I am to be totally honest with you, I didn’t even anticipate. 2020 has truly been a year full of surprises and sometimes unwelcome ones at that. That is also how it is almost midnight and I am rushing to finish this blogpost so that I can try sleep. I genuinely hope you all have been doing well and perhaps even been busy so you didn’t miss me that much. Before we delve into my little skin highlight, I just wanted to say a big thank you for the support that you have been giving me on my platforms… I have felt so much love coming my way…. We even hit a whooping 200 subscribers o the channel…Can you believe it? (if you haven’t subscribed yet, you are missing out in the fun over there…and also, support a girl no?)

3 basic skin care rules everyone should apply

Mondays are usually a struggle for me, infact, I stopped counting them as the first day of the week. Today however I decided to change the rhythm for this week. Actually, this is what happened. Last week was a DIFFICULT week, wueh! I shared part of it here in this post….the part that I did not share however was a little personal crisis that I fell into somewhere in the middle of the week. Hopefully I will find the right words for it to share soon, because I strongly feel that its a topic that needs to be shared. It ended up making me feel like I was the worst person in the world however, without even knowing why necessarily. Somewhere along the week though as I was sitting with my feelings and processing them, I got this strong resolve about my self perception that I can’t even explain…but that’s what is driving me this week.
