Skincare Routine (Summer 2017)

Hey guys , with the summer heat my skin has been a wreck. Recently I found a great combo for my combination skin that has really helped with the scarring and acne itself . Most of the products I use are pretty much natural and affordable. 

1. Cleanser- I use to use the most expensive cleanser like Clinique and a few other drug store products like Clearasil , Clean and Clear , and Acne Free. I found that those product only work for a short period of time. And I needed something that would help get rid of the acne as well as the scarring left behind. I remember my mom telling me to go with the basic for my face and she mentioned using black soap. So yesterday I went to the commissary and purchased black soap from the brand Shea Moisture and it worked wonders overnight. I could tell a huge difference in the way my skin felt after using it. And the good thing is it was less then three dollars.

2. Toners- I never knew how important toner were, until I read an article about the importance of toning your face and how it was the most forgotten step in skin care. I use to just pick up toner from the brands mention above until , once again my mother introduce me to witch hazel. Witch Hazel is great for blemishes and damaged skin and it only cost about three dollars.

3. Moisturizers- Moisturizing your face is also an important step in your skin care routine even if you have oily to combination skin. The moisturizer I use for my face is shea butter. Now I know that sound weird, but it actually works well for my skin and help fade my acne scars. The best part is it last a lot longer than majority of my other moisturizers.

This concludes my summer skin care routine. Most of the products mention above are affordable and natural as well. And I only use three product to help cleanse my skin.Skin care is important especially during the summer time with the sweat from the heat . Let me know your skin care routine in the comments below.

Fall Natural Hair Must Haves (Blogtober 17)

Lately I have been experimenting with different hair products to provide the right moisture for my hair. Today I will be discussing some of my favorite natural hair must haves for fall. And with the weather changing I normally keep my hair in a protective styloe for the most part. 
1. Coconut Oil - I love to seal in the moisture with coconut oil .  Its affordable and last a long time , a little goes a long way.  2. Castor Oil- Every night I love to massage my hair with castor oil , to promote hair growth and stimulate my scalp. 
3. Conditioning Grease- I use a small amount to add moisture to my hair and my hair stays soft and moisturized.  4. Gel- I use the Shea Moisture to lock in the moisture and this gel does not flake up either. 5. Conditioner- For conditioner I use the Tresseme brand  , its affordable and does the job.
I dont like to use a lot of hair products in my regimen and I normally will wash my hair once a week and moisturize daily . What are your favorite hair must haves…

Blogtober 12 Fall Bucketlist and Aspirations

Here are a couple things I want to challenge myself to do this fall. I really want to get into the habit of making goals(bucket list ) of things I want to achieve and vision myself doing it. So without further ado here are some of my ideas for my fall bucketlist and aspirations :
1. Have a Disney Halloween throwback marathon of all my favorite childhood movies. And if you want you can do it with friends while baking or crafting.
2. Go to a pumpkin patch , I know this is kind of cheesy but I really want to take pictures in the pumpkin patch. And also go through a corn maze and pick out pumpkins. Here in Arizona we have an Apple Annie's and during the fall they have a variety of fall festivities going on.
3. Get into the habit of reading more, I feel like majority of the time I spend way to much time on my cell phone or to much watching tv. Its a nice treat every once in a while, and I feel like reading help you to be intellectual because you are learning new words.
4. Go for eveni…
