I had a baby and lowered my standards. At least partially true for sure.
I've got cranky skin. Years of inconsistent care coupled with all sorta hormone fluctuations have lead to this.
I think the secret (not secret) to good skin is being consistent with your skincare. I'm so so guilty of being like "I took off my makeup every night this week with a wipe and my skin is breaking out". Or "I went through a full cleanse twice this month and my skin doesn't look any better". Seriously, I thought that using a makeup remover "cleansing" wipe was better than nothing. It probably was better than nothing, but juuuuust barely?
I thought since I'm giving my face a pretty serious break from makeup these days already (except mascara which makes me feel like I have a pulse) it would be a good time to commit to giving some products a serious shot. I choose the cocokind brand on a recommendation from a friend and because I can read and understand every single ingredient. Imagine that?! I'm not here to preach but your skin is your largest organ and whatever you put on it gets into your body quickly. I'm not perfect but I try to follow the 80/20 rule like everything else in my life. Plus this brand is led by a killer girl boss who is an awesome human. She's made a point numerous times to talk about the fact that no matter the success of the company she will keep these ridiculously reasonable prices because she's not trying to make bank, but make great affordable products. LOVE!
As you can see I like to go all in with a brand 👀 Since you also know I like to hold onto posts for months before actually publishing, this collection has gotten even larger. They just launched a makeup line. I've got the whole thing but it deserves it's own post. Check back in about a year or if you're really interested just tell me to freakin post it!
Ok so it's been over 6 months and I have to tell you I have seen a huuuuuge difference. Now against the scientist in me I changed two variables at the same time. I started using new products AND I did it consistently. I'm sure both had an impact but I have no way to tell which was greater.
But I can tell you this, my skin is thankful and it's showing me so! The other day I got dressed and did my makeup ready to go out the door in 2 minutes. Did you read that? Got dressed AND did my makeup. This was the result. I'm only posting this so you know I'm not full of shit? Everyone's skin is different but I love when my friends tell me what's working for them!
Where the hell are you supposed to look when taking such a picture?! I sat right in my window so you could see in natural unfiltered light. Wet hair, mismatched top straps, mascara, sweep of highlighter, dot of concealer on chin and out the door! Forgive my never ending attempt at growing out my eyebrows. #90sgirlproblems

If you've got cranky skin like me you are going to die over the tumeric stick. It's gentle and it works. Like whaaaat? Why did it take till 2017 for someone to figure this out?
