If you’ve been reading this blog for a minute, you might have seen my numerous skincare routines. Personally, I think you should at least 2 different skincare routines; morning and night. However, you should also have one for cold weather and hot weather, which I have. Another skincare routine I have is one for when I have breakouts. Thankfully, I don’t have berakouts as much as I used, but I still get them occasionally. Therefore, I need an easy acne skincare routine for when my face decides to erupt.
Like some people, my skin flares up mostly around the holidays due to stress and sugary treats. Typically, the products I use to clear up breakouts are gentle and natural face products, because the ingredients don’t further aggravate my skin. However, I was recently introduced to a new skincare line acne system; Kamedis. I’ve been using these products throughout the past couple of months and they’re currently staple products in my life. Keep reading for info about each item.
ITEM OF THE WEEK is a weekly series on Stained Couture that highlights a product I’m currently loving. This week: Glow Recipe Avocado Melt Sleeping Mask.
I feel myself sliding down a rabbit hole of sleeping face masks, but I’m okay. Actually, they became really clutch during the holidays. They were great to use on those cold, dry nights when my skin needed extra attention, but I didn’t have the time nor energy. Instead, I would slather on a soothing, hydrating mask, and then peacefully wake up to soft, supple skin. This Avocado Melt Sleeping mask from Glow Recipe is a new addition to my “Products that help me wake-up with glowing skin”. However, it’s been great and so worthy of being my favorite item of the week. Keep reading to see why.
A couple of years ago, I experimented with natural deodorants. Although I found some that were “strong” enough for me, I eventually went back to ones I grew up using. However, after a recent bad reaction, I think I will use a natural deodorant for the rest of my life.
FYI, a deodorant is mostly considered natural if it’s free of aluminum and parabans, which most everyday deodorants contain. Thankfully, we now live in a more advance and knowledgeable time when you can buy natural deodorants on the same aisle as the non-natural ones. Keep reading to see what exactly happened that had me make this decision. Also, I share my current collection of natural deodorants.
For the past couple of months, I’ve been very good at not buying all the pretty things I want. However, we all have moments of weakness, but I just choose to document mine. So, here I am, sharing some recent beauty finds that I’ve been loving so hard!
Want to know more about these beauty finds? Well, keep reading!
One of my least favorite things about late fall, aside from having to get in the holiday spirit, is the dropping temps. Don’t get me wrong, I despise being hot, but being cold is not my favorite jam either. Like with most seasonal changes, I have to change my skincare routines. However, changing your skincare products from warm climate to cold climates can be very drastic. For example, you have to switch from light lotions of summer to heavier creams to combat cold, dry weather. Another thing you have to do is pay extra attention to your lips. Of course, you hydrate you lips all year (right?!), but you have to give as little more TLC in the colder months. You don’t want to be caught with dry flaky lips EVER!
Personally, I have an intense obsession with making sure my lips are never dry and crusty. However, there have a been a few times when I found myself creepily pulling dry skin off my lip. In hindsight, I’m actually super appreciative of this moments, because they caused me to have to find a product to stop and/or prevent it from ever happening again. I have a quite few favorite lip treatment, but keeping reading to see the ones I think I’ll be reaching for the most during the next few cold, dry months.
