Skin care: TruSelf Organics Detoxifying Mask

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/878/48717027/files/2015/01/img_0209.jpg
I have to say putting on face masks is my favorite part of skin care! I love how clean and smooth my skin looks afterwards. This mask from TruSelf Organics is my new favorite! It is all natural and has no parabens, petroleum, artificial dyes, or synthetic fragrances.

To use the mask you mix the powder with equal parts water and then apply like you would normally apply any mask. I would suggest using upward motions since the mask does get really stiff, it will help keep your skin firm and give you a ‘lift’.

It’s made from a blend of natural clays that draws out bacteria and toxins from your skin. It clears pores, assists with acne, unevenness, and wrinkles.

I truly love this mask! I use it once a week and I find that to be sufficient since I have dry skin. If your skin is on the oily side you may want to use it twice a week.

They’re having a special that’s good till January 30, 10% off with the code loveyourskin15.

Skin Care Routine!

20140628-110704-40024623.jpg
I get asked on instagram how to get foundation to look smooth and even. Even though primers do help, they can only do so much. My tip is having a good consistent skin care routine that works for you. It doesn’t have to be super extravagant with a million steps or expensive products, as long as they work for you. My mom always taught me that it’s best to stick with products from the same line because they’re all chemically made to work with each other. So I try and make sure my face wash, toner, and moisturizer are all from the same brand or line.

These are the products that I’ve been loving at the moment.

Neutrogena Cleansing Towelettes (hydrating)- the first thing I do is I ALWAYS take off my makeup before I go to sleep and these are my favorite wipes to use! I have dry skin and other ones I’ve tried leave my skin really dry or give me an allergic reaction, but these are amazing! They leave my skin so soft and hydrated after using them.

Mary Kay Oil-Free Makeup Remover- I’ve been using this for years! I use this mostly for removing eye makeup/lipstick. (I also like to use it while washing brushes to remove stubborn concealer/foundation) It takes off every last but of mascara, eyeliner and lipstick stains. What I love most is that I don’t have to pull and tug on my skin.

Neutrogena Visibly Even Foaming Cleanser- My best friend introduced me to this! I absolutely love it. I was using it when I was out of town and saw it working immediately. When I came back home and started using my old face wash (also neutrogena) my skin went back to feeling patchy. I’ve noticed a huge difference in my skins texture it really is more smooth and even, which also helps my makeup goes on smooth.

Mary Kay Facial Brush- this little guy does an amazing job of taking off my makeup and exfoliating my skin, I use it with my visibly even face wash. It has two speeds and it’s the perfect size for you face. It allows you to get right around the nose area easily.

Neutrogena Visibly Even Moisturizer- I love the way my skin feels after I apply this! It leaves my face so soft! I also love that it has sunblock because I’m really bad at remembering to put on sunblock and I can’t afford to forget UV protection in these Texas summers, so this takes care of that for me.

Spring Favorites

Ok Guys! This post is going to be a little on the lengthy side haha I’m going to share my favorite products to use during spring, I’m going to try and keep it as short and to the point as possible! ūüôā

 

Face/Skin Care

Face

 

Smashbox Photo Finish Primer UVA/UVB SPF 15-¬†This is my favorite primer! It’s anti-aging and has SPF! This one seems to work better for me than their regular one (and thats because that one used to be my favorite) The only reason why I use this primer is because I got it on sale for $10…I know right such a great deal. I’m going to be so sad when I run out because it is pricy, but maybe i’ll splurge because I love it so much

L’Oreal Magic Skin Beautifier BB Cream-¬†I absolutely love this bb cream! All the other ones I’ve tested left me feeling greasy and shiny (and thats because I have dry skin!) It evens out my skin tone and gives a nice natural finish. Whenever I don’t feel like wearing too much makeup I’ll usually apply this then powder on top and spray fix+ or a setting spray.

Maybelline Fit Me- During spring I love for my foundation to have a dewy finish since the weather is usually nice and fresh, and this foundation is perfect! I love it!

ELF Makeup Mist & Set-¬†I’ve been using this for a while now and I love to use it if my makeup looks a little too powdery and to set my makeup. I wouldn’t say it makes my makeup last all night but it does keep it on longer than usual.

Naphcon A Eye Drops-¬†I know it’s a little random to throw this in but I’ve been using¬†these¬†for years now and prefer them over every other brand out there. If you have allergies or sensitive eyes like I do these are the best. They literally take care of everything redness, itching, watery eyes, you name it and they work quickly too! Whenever my eyes bother me I use two drops and within 2-3 min. they’re feeling better!

Josie Marin Argan Oil-¬†I’ve mentioned this before but it’s still a favorite! I like to use it as a¬†nightly¬†moisturizer. It’s great for every skin type and you can use it for your hair, skin, nails, cuticles…everything! So it’s just a great product to have on hand.

Revlon PhotoReady Concealer- This concealer is full coverage which I love, I use it for dark circles, spot coverage, and for highlighting.

Prosacea –¬†This gel is great for getting rid of redness and occasional pimples. I don’t have rosacea but I do get occasional redness and pimples on my cheeks and this really helps even out my skin.

 

Eyes

Eyes

 

Revlon PhotoReady Eyeshadow in Metropolitan- I love the colors in this because you can do both daytime and night time looks and its small enough to fit in your bag.

MAC Pigment in Copper Sparkle- This color is amazing, I love pigments because you can use them wet or dry and even as eyeliner or mix them with other colors to create custom colors.

MICA Eyeshadow in Earth- Rose gold shadow is really in right now and personally I love it! This eyeshadow is a dusty pink color and I like to layer it with a gold eyeshadow or mix in the MAC Copper Sparkle Pigment to get a rose gold color.

Sephora Kohl in Purple- ¬†I love wearing purple eye makeup during spring, I’ll usually just use this as an eyeliner or apply it all over my lid and put a purple eyeshadow on top.

Khloe’s Kardazzle Face¬†Palette-¬†¬†This colors in this are gorgeous now that the weather has warmed up, you can create so many different looks with this. The metallic colors are absolutely GORGEOUS!

Mary Kay Eye Primer-¬†This primer is amazing! My eyeshadow doesn’t crease at all with this, I like it more than high end primers that i’ve tried!

 

Lips

Maybelline Color Whispers (Left-Right) Petal Rebel, Pink Possiblities, Faint for Fuchsia, Who Wore It Red-er, A Plum Prospect. I’ve found myself reaching for these a lot lately. They’re a lot more pigmented than I expected and also very hydrating

MAC Angel-¬†Such a gorgeous nude-pink color, I love to wear it whenever I’m wearing bold eyeshadow.

MAC Pink Pearl Pop-¬†Perfect for spring! It’s a barbie pink color with subtle shimmer.

Prosacea Multi-Symptom Relief Gel

Image

I absolutely love this stuff! It can be used to treat redness, rosacea and even pimples. I don’t have rosacea but I do get occasional pimples. I like to use this as spot treatment and it works great since it treats redness. I like to apply it on the area at night and by the morning the pimple is usually gone or I’ll apply it before my makeup and it helps the redness go away so the pimple isn’t peaking out through my makeup.

Seaweed Mask!

This mask does wonders for my skin! it helps even out my complexion and my skin just feels so smooth afterwards! I just use seaweed sheets that I buy in the international aisle at my local grocery store. Seaweed contains Vitamin B Complex which enhances circulation, enhances the lifespan of skin cells, promotes oxygenation of the skin, and also keeps skin from getting inflamed or puffy. Deficiency in Vitamin B Complex can cause irritations such as itching and rashes.

  1. I like to start with a clean face, then I tear off a strip of the seaweed and soak it in a bowl of warm water for about 3 minutes.
  2. After it has soaked for 3 minutes I take the seaweed and rub it on my face till my skin is covered with the little bits of seaweed and let it dry. Don’t get freaked out if it starts to itch! Its just tightening on your skin.

This is what it should look like

3. Once the seaweed is all dry I rinse it off with warm water and a damp towel. Then follow with my normal toner and moisturizer.

and there you go! Your skin should feel amazing!
