Throughout the Summer, I have spent a majority of my time researching make up and skin care products, as I am on a mission to make my skin look better than it ever has for the upcoming school year. Fortunately, my sister is very passionate skin care (you should see her five serum ritual in the morning and night haha) and loves to purchase products for both of us. Today, I wanted to share with you two of my current, beauty favorites which have allowed me to not look like a total mess.
Happy Saturday my friends! During the weekends, my family and I are generally roaming the malls, going on errands, or running through Home Depot to redesign our home. By spending all day outside, my hair is consistently being exposed to the sun, causing my locks to mimic my skin after I put a moisturizing sheet mask on (trust me, I look like I coated my face in olive oil). As much as I enjoy the sunshine, my hair does not, making me do this band braid hairstyle, every other day.

As a teenager, acne always finds its way back to my skin, causing my face to become tremendously oily and textured. Due to my consistent breakouts, my bathroom now thrives in several products which “claim” to eliminate blackheads and pimples, but unfortunately are quite ineffective. However, I have finally found a solution which rapidly removes my pimples from my face and leaves my skin feeling super soft.
Although frequently worn throughout the year, ponytails are essential for surviving the Summer heat, as the hairstyle keeps your hair out of your face, while making you look amazing! With Summer here, our greasy roots are tremendously apparent, making our regular ponytails unflattering (who likes showing their greasy roots anyway?). As a result, I wanted to share with you, my go-to, three-minute, ponytail with a twist.
One year ago, my thin, over-shampooed hair was deprived of shine and thrived in Dandruff. Today, the strands growing from my scalp are stronger, thicker, and shinier than ever. Although a profusion of people only shampoo and condition their hair, healthy hair requires more steps, time, and money to achieve.
