Comfy Cozy Winter Beauty

Winter is officially here, and for many of us that means that our skin begins to take in the dry and brutal cold weather. With the heat indoors, that can suck the life out of anyone’s routine. I have three different work trips coming up, on top of doing NBA All-Star, which means that taking extra care at night is crucial to keep me glowing. Also, I tend to hibernate a bit when I am working like this, so also staying comfy for me is key in cute sweats, like these ones from Sundry. What I love about them, is that they look just as cute with these Nike kicks to run a few errands around town as well!

In the morning, I always start off with my coffee, while doing some reading and using the coolest and inexpensive tool, the Hansderma Ice Roller. I simply roll it over my face and neck to instantly tighten and depuff my skin. I also sleep at night with my humidifier from Amazon. It is the perfect tool to keep hydrated. Also, I drink at least two liters of water a day in the winter, I know it can be hard, but pick up a fun Swell Bottle which makes water seem so much cooler.

As for my skincare routine, I use ReVive Skincare and Malin + Goetz. Both of these lines can be found at Nordstrom. I always suggest seeing your favorite skincare specialist to walk you through the best products for your skin. I tend to not use my Glycolic pads more then once a week during the winter and focus on a once a week mask that is more hydrating!

Holidays, Your Style

Last Minute beauty guide!

We all know that the holidays are here, and nothing makes me more excited then wearing cozy pajamas in bed, that light up the holiday spirit! I always tend to buy a new pair each year, and fuzzy socks are my favorite. Gifting pajamas is always a great gift for anyone on your list. I have linked several pairs, including these cute ones from Nordstrom.

When it comes to beauty, I love to give the women in my life some of my favorite products. Let me be honest, the winter is hard on our skin, and a good mask and a fun lip balm are great stocking stuffers. Lately people have been asking me about my skincare routine, so I am going to break it down for you below, and any of these products makes for an amazing gift!

Daily skincare routine:

I always start and end my day by cleansing my skin with Revive Gel Cleanser. It is gentle on my skin, and this is one of my favorite brands. A makeup artist led me on to it years ago, and my skin has changed.

After I cleanse, I always wipe a quick cotton pad with Kiehls Ultra Facial Toner. It is made to comfort your skin, and helps suck in moisture.

I always use an eye serum, and although pricey, the Revive anti-aging eye serum is unbelievable. I use a small bit in the morning and the evening.

We all know that when it comes to lip balm, I am a fan of Rose Salve. I use it about ten times a day, and it works on your face, hands, and any bit of dry and damaged skin.

When it comes to moisturizers, I have one for the am, and one for the pm in the winter time. Once again, Revive, has changed my skin. For the am, their Renewal cream with SPF is perfection, and in the evening I use their ultra hydrating firming cream.

I tend to get brown spots from the sun, and the best formula I have found is from Skinceuticals. I put one drop in my moisturizer two times a week.

Last, once a week, I love a good mask, and my favorite is from Boscia. Their charcoal mask is perfect for impurities and pulling out those blackheads on my face.

Cheers and happy shopping!

Summers with Sweat Cosmetics!

Okay guys, we all know that I am an active athlete and sun worshiper here in Los Angeles. For me, making sure that I have on the proper SPF and coverage is a must. I am literally always outside running, swimming, or just running around town, and so when I came across the coolest line of make-up Sweat Cosmetics I had to try.

Sweat Cosmetics

My face is really sensitive, but I like to have on some make-up when I am out exercising because it just makes me feel much better about myself. Sweat Cosmetics are high-performance makeup products designed to protect and enhance beauty while being on the go. They were developed and tested by Olympic female athletes in order to empower active women to embrace beauty and find their sweat. From the moment that I put it on, I knew that I was sold, and not only that, it outlasted a major run on the beach, plus a quick dip in the ocean. If you are on the go like me, run don’t walk to pick up their products.

Besides a good new cosmetic for on the go, I also tend to live in baseball hats in the summer when I am trying to beat the heat. This cute California hat from Nordstrom is the perfect pink and is only $15 dollars. I mean talk about a steal.

The weather as we know cools off at night, and so I have been living in this cute adidas sweatshirt in the early am. It will be perfect for the Fall as well with my skinny jeans and sneakers. For now, I am on a white denim jean short kick. How cute are this pair from Topshop? You can wear them in the day, or pair them with a cute bootie and blouse for the night.

Last, of course I have been living in my New Balance kicks that I have had for two years. They are worn in and go with almost everything. I love the simplicity of this color, but if you want a bolder pair they have a ton of fun colors right now.
