My Current Nightly Skincare Routine


Hello beautiful! This post has been a long time coming.  Today I’m sharing my current nightly skincare routine!  All the products I use come highly recommend! (I’ve been using most of them for years)  I must say, what works for me and my skin type may not necessarily work for you and your skin type.  I suggest booking an appointment with a registered esthetician for the most accurate evaluation of your skin. But, for an easy at home evaluation you can follow the steps below :).

**How to determine your skin type**

  • Wake up in the morning and take an oil blotter to your t-zone.  Depending on how much oil (if any) is on the towelette you can roughly determine your skin type! No oil = dry.  Little to no oil = combination/ slightly dry. Little to very oily = slightly oily to oily.

Six Skin Care Products You Should be Using Before You Turn 30


“MOM!! what is this line on my forehead!? I swear it wasn’t there yesterday!!!” – (Me on the phone with my mom analyzing my skin in the mirror.)   My 20s are coming to a screeching halt! Where the hell does the time go?  I’ve had a great run in my 20s but in my 30’s I want to be able to say, “Thank you Amanda, I’m so glad you did that!”  I’m talking about anti-aging skin care.  As I approach my thirties I’m starting to notice lines on my face I have never seen before and I want to start getting in the habit of taking care of my skin.  Beauty is only skin deep….but your face is the first thing people see!  Yes I know that sounds shallow, but it makes me feel good when I look good.  It gives me a boost of confidence when I think my makeup looks pretty or when I get a facial and my skin is glowing!  Did you know that the damage you do to your skin in your 20s is going to show up in your 30s, 40s, and 50s?!  Start your skin care NOW ladies!  Starting these products now can have a greater impact on your skin later on in life.  The good news is…it’s not too late!

Listed below are the products we should be using! Continue reading “Six Skin Care Products You Should be Using Before You Turn 30”
