Just a little bit of unfiltered truth as we get ready to close out the year: a year ago I would have never ever dared to post a picture of myself with no makeup on. I was dead in the middle of a skin crisis (swipe right) that even makeup couldn’t cover.
I tried to be open and candid about it, but it was a total nightmare, and I was embarrassed because I felt SO ridiculous that it affected me so much! But it was what it was, and sometimes the seemingly silly things DO get to us, and it’s just part of being human. No matter how small or silly, if something affects you, it’s worth dealing with!
I credit about 75% of the change in my skin to diet, and specifically, taking much better care of my gut health, but I also got a LOT more serious about skincare, and the consistency of both is what got me to the point I’m at today.
So though I love and recommend lots of different products for various people and concerns, here are the ones that were my own top 10 ultimate skincare heroes of 2019:
🌟 @tatcha pure camellia cleanser
🌟 @omorovicza cleansing foam
🌟 @drdennisgross acne eliminating pads
🌟 @herbivorebotanicals blue tansy resurfacing mask
🌟 @drunkelephant protini polypeptide cream
🌟 @omorovicza balancing moisturizer
🌟 @farmacybeauty dew it all eye cream
