DeVita Skin Care Saved My Dry Skin: A Review

DeVita Skincare Products

This past month, I’ve been trying out some new skincare products from DeVita. It’s been a good four years since I’ve used anything other than oil and clay to cleanse my face, but it was time for a change. I had heard tales of people’s skin changing in their mid-twenties, and it finally happened to me. I used to be normal to oily, as so many of us are.  In the past year, I’ve come to accept that my skin has transformed to be dry.  And this meant my regular skincare regimen wasn’t cutting it anymore, resulting in breakouts and blackheads. I needed help.

Skincare is a topic I am passionate about. The skin  is just a thin barrier between your internal body and the the external world, making it a gateway to toxic chemicals if you’re not paying attention to what’s in the products you’re using.  That’s why for years I used only diy cleansing methods, so I could know exactly what my body was coming into contact with.

For my quest, I took to iHerb to find some affordable, clean skincare options.  Continue reading DeVita Skin Care Saved My Dry Skin: A Review

Elegant Braided Holiday Up-do

Christmas Eve is only five days away!  The holidays are one of my favorite times of year, not because of presents and decorations and carols filling the air (though all of that is definitely good stuff), but because of the warmth that fills my heart when I spend time with the ones I love.  If you’re like me, you’re still running around desperately trying to get last minute gift shopping done, but you’ve already figured out your make up and outfit for the family dinner.  I think I may have perfected the art of holiday hair, so without further ado, here’s my favorite braided up-do for the holidays!

Sweet Pink Face Mask

Is there anything as relaxing as treating yourself to a spa night? I love to throw together a simple face mask and relax with a cup of tea and a book for a few minutes.  It’s one of those little moments you can take to remind yourself you’re worth a little pampering from time to time.

This is one of my favorite face masks, and I think others with dry skin will love it too!  There’s just three simple ingredients: Continue reading Sweet Pink Face Mask
