Clean Beauty I Want on a Wednesday…

Happy 2015 to you all! Sorry I’ve been on a writing hiatus lately with the holidays and end of year festivities.

Did you make any New Year’s Resolutions? I sure did. Continue my yoga and pilates regimen, and continue eating cleaner! What’s helped me stick to my resolution is following a ton of yoga and clean eating inspired Instagrams.

Along with clean eating, I’m getting into products lately that clean my face and leave it ready for a good night’s rest, such as Murad’s Hydrating Toner – this stuff doesn’t burn my face and it gets the job done. What is it about the New Year that makes me run to Ulta and Sephora? I seem to always run out of products around the same time, twice a year! How convenient for the stores and inconvenient for my wallet!

Even thought it’s January and freezing in many parts of the country, this doesn’t mean the sun isn’t an issue. Lather up on that SPF, ladies and gents! I prefer some SPF tinted moisturizers that don’t make me dehydrate halfway through the day. Some faves are the Christian Dior BB Creme with SPF and Tarte SPF Tinted Moisturizer.

What are your Wednesday Must Want Clean Beauty Items?

Covering Up on Cloudy Days!

On days like these where I want to crawl into bed because it’s gloomy outside (I sometimes think I have Seasonal Affective Disorder, which is why I love sunny So-Cal! self-diagnosed), I have to have my extra dose of caffeine to keep me going but also remember to take care of my skin!

That’s right, I am a SPF-hound (and I play SPF police with everyone in my family, making sure they wear sunscreen especially on days like this!!). My fave ones are tinted moisturizers because it gives you an effortless glow and at the same time, decreases your risk of developing melanoma (skin cancer) and keeps your skin from burning.

I especially love this Becca version (@ select Sephora stores) because it feels great on my skin, makes it look like I bothered to put makeup on, and has an SPF of 25. Win win!!

Sunglasses burn, stay away and come again another day, and while you’re at it, take the grey sky along with you.

What’s your fave tinted moisturizer??
