IN THE MORNING: PrOTECT that SKiN

Welcome to October!!! Its time for many things like Halloween (hands down my favorite holiday) but also my next segment of randomize!! YAY. This is the skin,body and health edition:))  Hope you’ll enjoy

So the weather is getting much colder in New York which means for those that normally have dry skin or dermatitis  (yes like meee) its time to layer up BUT correctly

Now, just so you know this is what works for me and what I tend to try to avoid when fall and winter are approaching because most times my skin will not cooperate with the weather

I’ll give you some insight on clothes,skin moisturizing and dealing with dry skin tips

First layering on clothing is essential when the cold is approaching so sweaters and long sleeves come right along

You want to avoid fabrics with wool or any itchy material because it will irritate your skin and it will not be nice. Look for shirts and sweaters with cotton or soft material. If you choose to buy stuff online just make sure that the material does not look itchy(if theres fabrics sticking out or if it look rough) but, there is always a risk with online shopping that you don’t get what you want.

With leggings again you want to avoid stuff that are itchy but also thick leggings are not always the best. They trap in the heat and this could make your skin itchy and dry so try to get some light weight leggings shirts, etc that trap in the heat but a still thin. Some great clothes for the cold are in Uniqlo, you can also look at H&m and forever 21 for some basics.

Skin and moisturizing go hand in hand if you have dry skin

If you want avoid dry skin you must moisturize!

With that being said buying a good lotion and oil for your skin is essential and also using the right products while your in the shower!

Personally I hate heavy lotion or pomades for my skin because they are like an extra layer on your skin however, they’re are great for your skin because it’ll lock in the moisture

I usually use Vaseline(yes good old cheap vaseline) in the winter times but for the fall I usually just get a heavier lotion like Nivea or Gold Bonds other favorites of mine are Cetaphil and the pomade of Nivea.

Layering your skin with oil gives you an extra protection for dry skin. You can use any oil but my favorite is avocado oil(yes I use the big bottle that I also cook with)(its a mutli-oil), almond oil and vitamin E oil.

So final thoughts layer your lotions/oil, make sure to get a good heavy brand and buy clothes that are kind to your skin.

Hope you guys have a great day !!

IN THE : Why I Dislike Makeup/Beauty Trends

This is a random post for a random rant kind of day

Five reasons why I dislike makeup/beauty trends:

JUST an FYI its not that I hate the trends but these are just things that bug me out and might even bug you out

  1. Everyone(meaning beauty gurus or insta makeup guru or aspiring blah) swears by these oil or these brushes and I’ll tell you why I dislike it too and its because it unrealistic and what works for them might not work for you we all have different skin, texture, pigmentation etc… but saying that everyone that has tried it has gotten this magical skin is like hmmmmmmmm
  2. Everyone is starting to look the same and hey if your doing a cosmetic treatment for you go ahead but we should start to question why some beauty gurus are looking alike and start to remember that its good to be different
  3. This is just a personal hate of mine but NOSE HIGHLIGHTING now I do highlight my nose but some of the makeup I see while I scroll through my instagram/snapchat, the highlight on the nose is EXCESSIVE and it just looks too much and I get it if its for the occasional going out but everyday its just too muchhh
  4. Gimmicky teas and such and although they could actually work I think its best for the consumer to just have a balanced diet
  5. Everyone all of a sudden is a makeup artist and hey if thats what you want to do for the rest of your life don’t let me bring you down but not everyone can do makeup and the average person is also a self taught makeup artist

BONUS: Because I just remembered this while upload the picture OVER LINING THE LIPS

all I’m going to say about this is that we notice we can see it maybe not in pictures but when you hit that door outside we are aware

LOL sorry for this long rant guys this is just things that have been bugging me out for a while and I had to share let me know if I missed anything

Also comment if you agree disagree what you ate hows your day LOL ill love to hear from you guys

  5. Using a hair treatment(protein or hydrating) every week to ensure strength , growth etc,,
