Happy Tuesday! I hope you all had a relaxing week. This past week I was lucky enough to enjoy an impromptu vacation while my store got a face-lift! I spent the week getting lots done in my personal life, but also enjoyed some much needed R&R. Not only did that include keeping up with my daily yoga practice, but also making time to do some reading! I have spent the last few days chillin' in bed with Dulce Candy's book, The Sweet Life and becoming more of a fan of her with each chapter! If you need an inspirational read, I definitely suggest picking it up!
Along side The Sweet Life, as I wrote about in my recent post Spring Cleaning: The Skin Care Cleanse, I recently borrowed a bunch of books from my local library pertaining to natural skincare treatments and remedies. Over the past week, I have been pouring over these books, trying to learn as much as I can about DIY beauty, and natural skin care. These books are proving to have lots of secrets to reveal, and I feel that I am learning more in-depth detail about the variety of oils and extracts used in natural facial products along with the variety of uses for each individual ingredient. Along side ingredient knowledge, I am picking up information about the best holistic skin care practices for maintaining a youthful, glowing complexion without the use of makeup.
As a young woman, acne care is one of my most pressing concerns when it comes to my skin. Although it is never too early to start with preventative age related skin care, as of now, preventing breakouts is high up on the list for me in terms of my daily routine. As a makeup lover, it is all the more important that I stick to a thorough cleansing regimen each day, to ensure that I my pores don't get clogged with foundation (even if it is just 100% Pure's Radiant BB Cream!) As promised in Spring Cleaning: The Skin Care Cleanse, I wanted to share with you some tips and tricks I have learned for natural acne care, as well as some DIY recipes for you guys to check out! Enjoy!
