I am so excited to kick off a brand new mini-series on Fashionably Lo and this time, it’s all about skincare. In the past, I’ve shared some beauty tutorials, product reviews and even some fun hair stuff but I’ve never really shared much about my skincare routine. Why? Because it is nonexistent. And not because I have perfect skin. Now, my mom did bless me with a pretty good skin situation – I don’t really struggle with any specific ongoing issues like greasiness, dry patches, large blemishes, etc. I do however break out every now and then and totally freak out. I’ve also noticed lately that my skin looks a little dull and, girl, there isn’t enough highlighter in the world to give me that dewy “natural” glow that I’m dying for.
Until this moment, my routine has been this: makeup remover wipes. Oh, and water. That’s it. It’s sad and basic and not really a skinCARE routine at all. Now, every now and then I use a moisturizer but it’s usually after receiving a sample from a friend or my mom trying to pimp out a new product she’s trying. But at the end of the day, I think it’s safe to say it’s finally time to get my grown-woman on and get my skincare routine in check.
I was initially introduced to COSMEDIX – the skincare powerhouse – at The Blog Societies Conference in August and after hearing Jessica rave on and on (and on) about how amazing her skin has looked & felt since hitting up regular appointments, I just couldn’t wait to try for myself. I mean, it’s pretty clear that I need some sort of routine or at least a better understanding of my skin and how to best take care of it.
Tomorrow, I’m heading to my first-ever facial (I know, wtf) and I literally can’t wait. I’m so pumped and also extremely nervous because I’m terrified the aesthetician is totally going to judge. But either way, I know it’s step one and getting things finally on track is a must for this almost-28 year old.
Stay tuned over the next four weeks as I share my journey through finding my very own skincare routine with the help ofCOSMEDIX. I’ll be sharing everything form my first consult to my first facial, some of the products I’ll be using and hopefully and updated routine that is sure to give me that glow. In the meantime, make sure you’re following along on Snapchat and Insta Stories tomorrow for a special #behindthescenes look at my first appt withCOSMEDIX!
