City Girl Skincare Series| 3 | Sweat Proof, Sunshine Friendly Makeup

After taking a few weeks off from blogging due to work changes, family trips, and just a lack of inspiration I'm back to share more tips in my city girl skincare series.

I'm quickly learning that summers in the city are hot, sweaty, and kind of gross. Most days I'd rather forego makeup, but over the last few week's I've been using FRÉ's Glow Me Tinted Defense Moisturizer. I've been using this since the start of spring, as soon as the sun emerged in NYC. This year I'm really trying to take using an SPF seriously and find it super convenient that this tinted moisturizer contains SPF 15.

City Girl Skincare Series| 2 | DIY Mask Recipe for Congested Pores

My skin has been absolutely thriving on The Better Skin Co. products that I featured in my last post, my skin is smooth and deep breakouts seem to clear up quicker than ever.

I asked on my instagram story if you would like to see more of the 'City Girl Skincare' posts and I decided to make a series of it! These posts will be focused on how I combat environmental stressors/pollution as well as congestion.

It's been a hot minute since I used my holy grail face mask. I have definitely posted about this before but I love using aztec secret indian healing clay, along with ACV to clear my pores and 'reset' my skin. I used to do this weekly, but that tradition fell by the wayside these past few months.

City Girl Skincare Series| 1 | Anti Pollution Skincare Routine

Originally I planned to write a gym bag essentials post focused around cruelty free skincare I of course keep in my gym bag, but I realized that my skin has changed a bit in the past few months and part of that I think is just that I'm getting older, but part of it also has to do with the change in my environment.

In January I began working in NYC, I still live about 1-2 hours (depending on my preferred transportation method) outside of the city-- but after being there 5 days a week I was starting to see a change in my skin.

My skin started transforming earlier this winter (Hello aging) and I rarely have a breakout, however I was experiencing dry patches here and there, as well as an increase in clogged pores. I love using oils so I recently switched to Herbivore's Emerald oil, and use that in place of my moisturizer.

It has been a hot second since I've uploaded a YouTube video, but I figured what better way to show you new products then to demo them and show you exactly how they apply.

I had a lot of fun filming and editing this video, so I hope you enjoy it too! The makeup I did in this video is very similar to my everyday makeup but I subbed in some lovely products from The Organic Skin Co. Previously I had tried their lipsticks, but I really enjoyed sampling a wider range of products today.

Post Commute Self Care| CBD Living Water Brand Focus

Pour yourself a glass of wine and start a bath, the weekend is finally here!

It's only been about two weeks since my last post but I feel as if I've been away from the blog for months. Please excuse my absence I've been working on a blog schedule now that I've started my new job. The past two weeks have been amazing, and honestly I'm the happiest I have been in a long time. I feel as if this new role is a great start to my dream career. I'm on cloud 9, since this is a role I've been hoping for.

With a new role comes a new schedule, hence my absence from my blog, and instagram. I'm also adjusting to a new commute. Which actually gave me the perfect test environment for today's brand feature.

My first week of work I opted to walk more often than I took the shuttle and it definitely had an effect on my legs (re: sore af). Thankfully CBD Living sent me a few of their pain reliving skincare products, so I put them to the test.
