When it comes to skincare, this is truly one of my great loves. I’ve been obsessed for a very long time, going back to the ripe age of six and giving myself weekly facials. It has always been important for me not to be a slave to my makeup and with the inevitable aging process it’s necessary for me to maintain healthy skin. I am frequently asked about my skincare and makeup routine and tips so I wanted to take a moment to share.
Disclaimer* The products I use, work for me and may not be suitable for all skin types. If you have questions or concerns, please contact a dermatologist prior to use.
I love skincare products so unlike a lot people who stick to a product that works, my skin craves change so I tend to introduce new products regularly. If you have sensitive skin, I would not recommend that.
Skin type- Oily
Secret weapon-Alkaline Water (introduced to me by my sister who also swears by it)

Because I’m a product junkie, prepare yourself for an overload of the products I use on a regular basis and are the flavors of the moment.
