I’ve been heavy on the self-care front for as long as I can remember. The beauty aisle was always the first spot I would browse through on TJ Maxx trips with my mom when I was 10. I was always on the hunt for face masks, so I could throw them on while I was soaking in the tub!
I’ve come a long way with my face mask selections, and this Turmeric 2-in-1 Brightening & Exfoliating Mask truly feels like an in-home facial and has all the perks! From polishing dull skin, uneven skin tone, sun damage and supporting healthy cell renewal, to unclogging pore congestion and oil, my skin looks and feels so healthy and glowing afterward! My “mask routine” looks a little different 20 years later, throwing it on while I load the dishwasher & switch laundry before bed, but I’ll take it!
Clean skincare has been the key to clear skin for me. I never realized how simple it was, the cleaner the ingredients, the clearer my skin has been. I recently started using Kora Organics Noni Glow Oil, and love how brightening and healthy it makes my skin look. I added the Noni Glow Sleeping Mask to my nighttime routine to boost hydration and plump skin (fine lines & wrinkles especially!) while I sleep. I wake up the next morning with such healthy, fresh looking skin!
This week, I was given the green light to resume workouts, and I could not be more ecstatic. I just feel better when I’m working out daily, and I have never been more motivated to get back in shape.
When I’m working out daily, I tend to stick to all other routines more consistently, like my weekly beauty mask. Since I’m feeling like a new person this week, I decided to switch up my usual mask routine with something new.
Lately, I don’t attempt anything without multitasking, as I applied a layer and went on to wash bottles and load up the sertilizer. By the time I was finished, the mask had already dried and was ready to rinse off. The fact that it is quick-drying, makes it so much more seseptable for me to use.
Curious to see how well it “pulled the gunk out of my pores” since it isn’t a peel off mask, I rinsed my face with warm water and was left completely amazed. It wiped my pores clean. I was so impressed with the facial-like results (without the inflammation) that I couldn’t wait to use it again, and feel like my face is clearer than ever. It’s seriously a game changing beauty product.
This homemade “chicken” soup is essential this weekend, while I’m feeling under the weather. I switched up this recipe a little by adding gluten free noodles and vegan chicken. It can easily be swamped with chicken, for a non-vegan version.

As much as I love Fall, the cooler weather does a number on my skin. I tend to turn to creamy moisturizers, hand creams, and hair masks for added moisture. Currently these products are my best beauty buys for the season!
When it comes to facial masks, these three are life changers. Being the beauty junkie that I am, I always research reviews to find which have worked best and a good fit for my skin type. The Oxygen Peel is by far the most effective product I’ve tried (after just one use!). After a rare breakout, this product cleared my skin up in three days. Absolutely amazing for scarring and dark spots, also. The Super Collagen Mask is a product I can’t live without. I use it twice a week, and always see improvements as a result. I’ve recommended each to friends and family. The Cucumber Tonic Mask is great for balancing combination skin, and preventing blackheads. I love the soft, healthy glow it gives my skin.
I have found the perfect solution to repair dry, chapped lips. Mary Kay sells a life changing set called Satin Lips, which consists of a Lip Mask and Balm. Along with my coveted Kiehl’s Lip Balm, they create a powerful force that can transform any pout to be silky and smooth. Apply the Lip Mask for 2-5 minutes, remove with a tissue. Next apply Kiehl’s Lip Balm. Lastly, apply Mary Kay Lip Balm. You won’t believe how long the combo keeps your lips moisturized.
