FALL MASKING WITH YESTO

So, I’m sure we’ve all dealt with it, yes, you know what I’m talking about, those fall skin transitions. Those transitions where your skin is not behaving the way you want it to because of the weather changes. It happens to me every year. The minute the weather starts to make it’s transition to colder days, my skin becomes really dry and parched and I notice the texture is not as clear. I also get a few blemishes if I’m not taking steps to moisturize throughout the day. I have combination skin, but in the winter, it seems more dry than anything and with all the holiday parties and holiday events, I wear more make-up than usual which can clog the pores and collect dirt build up. This year, I’m taking extra measures with my skin and incorporating a weekly mask routine to keep my skin happy and healthy as it goes from warm to cold days here in NC.

I’m sure you’ve heard me talk about masking in past blogpost. It’s definitely a new addition to my skin routine because why not. Aside from my weekly Apple Cider Vinegar and Bentonite Clay mask, I’ve incorporated the new YESto White Charcoal line to my skin care routine as well. I’m lazy, so the Yesto Detoxifying and Hydrating White Charcoal Mud Mask is amazing. I can target certain areas with this easy to use stick and bam, clean, healthy hydrated skin in no time. My favorite thing about the tomato line is that it’s specifically for dry sensitive skin and since I fit the bill, I’m winning. Masking is a permanent thing in my skincare routine this season by who wants dry, blemished skin? Not I. Other than masking, I’m making sure to do the following to keep my skin at top level this fall:

  1. Moisturize 2 times a day or more
  2. Drink at least 64oz of water a day
  3. Consume at least 4 servings of vegetables a day
  4. Oil cleanse and tone
  5. Incorporate clean beauty/cosmetics products into my daily routine
  6. Exercise regularly
  7. Sleep at least 8 hours a day

I think with these actions steps, my skin will fair the fall and winter weather transitions. Here’s to happy and healthy skin this season and seasons to come.

Stay tuned for my updated skincare products coming to the blog soon.

JUST GLOW NYC

Hi everyone. Guess what, we have officially entered #glowupseason. Literally though, LOL. I’ve been MIA for a while, but that’s because things have been crazy this summer and I was in need of some serious self care, so I’ve kicked off my self care routine with a new beauty line, Just Glow NYC. They sell a variety of mask to help you get your glow on. I’m currently digging the After Glow Mud Mask with Dead Sea minerals. This mask got my face super clean without stripping it of moisture. As many of you have read in past post, I have dry skin, so I’m constantly battling with keeping my skin moisturized. After using this particular mud mask, my face is super soft to the touch, supple and of course dewy and glowing. I applied the mask with my fingers, making sure to lay it on thick and then I let the mask sit for about 15 minutes, rinsed it off and applied my daily moisturizer afterwards. Talk about amazing results!

One of my favorite things about this brand of mask is that it’s affordable. There are so many mask out there that are a bit on the expensive end and I’m on a budget, but don’t want to sacrifice great skin days, so having found an affordable mask makes all the difference and to top it off, all the Just Glow NYC products are vegan and cruelty free. They are also free of Pthalates, Phosphates, Sulfates, Mineral Oil, and Parabens. In other words, its nothing but the good stuff and none of the bad.

MY FIRST GLOW UP WITH GLOBODY BY JENN

My first glow up brought to you by GloBody By Jenn. Not gonna even lie guys, when she reached out to me about a glo, the only thing I thought was, hey, black girls don’t tan but boy was mistaken. In fact, a glo is amazing on brown skin and just makes are melanin pop even more. It gives a nice bronzy glo to the skin and it’s exactly what I needed to pop on camera for my pageant last weekend. By the way, all the deets on my pageant coming to the blog later this week.

So, how does this glo body business work anyways. Well, Jenn operates a mobile service so it was easy peezy for me as she dropped by the house for my 20-minute glo session. Yup, it only takes that long.

Rule #1: wear dark clothes you really don’t care for.

Rule #2: the less clothes you wear, the more glo coverage you get. In my case, I stripped down to just  a black bathing suit bottom and some pasties to cover my girls. If you’re not comfortable with nudity, this is not the glo for you. FYI, Jenn was an absolute gem about it. She sees nake bodies for glo sessions on a regular, so it wasn’t uncomfortable or awkward, she really understands and is just a lady on a mission to make that skin shine.

So, the glo takes about 24 hours to really activate and get the skin popping for that glowy, dewy effect. With that being said, you can’t shower or sweat for 8-12 hours if you’re seeking best results. I would suggest showering before your glo application. As you can see from the pics, she set up this cool black tent, you stand in it on these foot stickies and then it’s time to get your glo on. The glo is a spray machine contraption, when she sprays it is a little chilly at first, but it’s nothing compared to eyebrow threading or these other painful things we do to get dolled up.

Keep scrolling as I come bearing gifts…

So, as you can see, this was only day one and my skin glo is already popping. With proper daily skin moisturization, your glo application can last up to 1-2 weeks. It’s normal for it to run off in the shower within the first few days, but for me, I went back to regular no glo in about a week and a half, just enough glo for my pageant, and chilling with my bestie in NY for the week (check my IG and IG stories for deets on that).

Anyway, I want you to glo on with me so contact Jen at globodybyjenn@gmail.com or visit their website: www.spraymobibletanning.com and tell them I sent you for 10% off your first glo application. Hint Hint 😉 it’s mother’s day and a gift like this would rock her world, just saying.

See you back here later in the week for deets on my nationals pageant.

Till next time.
