Mexico has such a dear place in my heart. My childhood summers were spent carelessly running through the neighborhood, running to the tienditas to buy endless amount of candy, and food so much food. The thing that I remember most was the busy city, San Luis Potosi, and the carelessness I would feel. Of course I was a child but I remember my parents and the look of pure happiness on their faces- for two straight months. I longed for this feeling as an adult; where I can run around a busy city but have time stand still. So of course Mexico City was top of the list, it was busy but I was on my own schedule. They’re also known for their mezcal but thats neither here nor there… Needless to say it was exactly that: Busy but sooo calming.
This trip was me and my best friends in a city of 10 million people. Time stood still and nothing ever stopped. It was perfection.
My beauty routine is constantly changing due to season changes, skin blahs, & new trends. But I have always managed to maintain a skin routine; the typical wash face, toner, and moisturize. Clinique kept a girl looking fresh through high school.The most important thing to me has always been to moisturize & hydrate. Drink your water ladies its better than any skin product out there. Here a few of my favorite items in rotation, that also do well under the summer heat.
So Fresh & So Clean: Fresh. It’s amazing and has great natural ingredients. I wasn’t a huge of the Soy Cleanser but the Rose Cleansing Foam is amazing. Smells great and really helps with reducing redness. Like I mentioned before, moisturizing is probably my obsession, like I love lotion. This Lotus Face cream is great but a bit too heavy for Houston weather. I recommend using this for your night time routine instead and opt for Lotus Radiance lotion for daytime. Love this Kiehl’s Avocado eye cream but again only for nighttime. Tip: spread this all over your wrinkle prone areas.
Summer Face: Living in Houston calls for minimal day makeup so your face doesn’t literally melt away. I swear by Hourglass, it’s great for my skin and looks flawless. Side note: most products are vegan, gluten, & paraben free. Topped off with a little blush, highlighting powder, and lip color- voila you’re summer beauty ready.
