Skincare

As I’ve gotten older, I’ve gotten much more interested in skincare. From ways to take better care of aging skin to items I’ve added to my routine, I’m having fun with skincare – and hope to dive into more on this topic soon! I’m definitely not an expert, but I am certainly a researcher. After turning 28 and then starting to notice changes in my skin, I’ve become much more avid in learning as much as I can about how to best take care of it! In this category, I document what I’m learning and share skincare beauty tips as I figure out what works and which products I love!

The New Skincare Brand I’m Trying for Extra Hydration

It’s been a minute since I wrote about skincare and new products I’m loving (I’m constantly trying new things!), so I thought I’d take today to tell y’all about IMAGE Skincare available at Dermstore. Dermstore has been around for forever and it’s one of my favorite places for skincare products because they have all the best brands – including this new brand – IMAGE Skincare. I’ve been so impressed with…

The Skincare Routine I’m Loving [Summer 2019]

Wow it’s been forever since I’ve written a beauty post on here! I realize that I share a good amount of beauty (mainly hair) on Instagram, but I lack at bringing that same content to the blog, so I’m sorry about that friends! It’s been a long time since I shared my skincare routine and that’s for a couple reasons. 1. I never feel like I KNOW enough to share…

7 Things Making Your Skin Freak Out

As part of my goal to get better at skincare, I want to learn about more than just what products to use. Y’all know I love testing things out and giving recommendations when I find something I love (like Tula products or what the heck to do for hormonal acne – more on this later), and then I also like to get to the WHY behind certain issues. What I’ve…

5 Quick Tips for Anti-Aging Around the Eye

Y’all know that I’ve been trying to get better at skincare and slowly but surely I think I’m getting there! Some days I forget to do anything but throw on moisturizer or whatever, but some days, man some days I’m on it! The thing about skincare is that it’s kind of like working out. You really do see positive changes the more effort or time you put into the routine…

The Holiday Tula Products Y’all Have to Gift (Or Keep for Yourself!)

Are y’all sick of me talking about Tula yet?! HA! I feel like between the posts and Stories, I’m always mentioning it, but I just love it so much. It’s the one brand that’s stuck around throughout the years and I feel like I must share the info! Plus, it’s something I always end up gifting a lot of Tula this time of year – my friends, sisters and mama…

3 Reasons I’ve Been Using Tula & Loving It

I’ve shared that I use Tula on Insta Stories before, but it wasn’t until recently that I realized I hadn’t dedicated a blog post to it. Which is kinda funny because I’ve been literally using it for years and it’s one of my favorite skincare lines. I’ve been using them in some way or another since all the way back when they were first getting started – maybe back in…

5 Things Keeping My Skin Hydrated This Summer

I’ll be honest that I’ve been blessed with pretty regular skin. I don’t get a ton of breakouts and it honestly doesn’t give me TOO much of an issue, but y’all know I’ve been trying to take better care of it. Honestly, it not being too much of a problem area has made me lazy with it over the years – and I thought it was time to change that.…

The Makeup Routine I Rarely Leave the House Without

Even though we talk a lot about beauty on BTD and I’m a Southern girl who loves to get all dolled up on occasion, honestly, I’m pretty low maintenance with my routine. Rarely am I into something that takes more than 20 minutes or makes me look unnatural. I’m much more into easy, effortless beauty routines or products. Because as you probably know, I’m constantly running 20 minutes behind, ha!

I LOVE learning about new topics (as you know), so I’ll be sharing the best or most interesting things I’ve learned about skincare every month or so. Some stuff you’ll probably know, some you may not, but I hope you learn alongside me through this series! I’m really, really excited about it. I’ll be sure to share the products I’m loving slash actually seeing results from along the way too.

How To Get Radiant Skin

I feel like my skincare routine is one of those things that’s always evolving. I’m constantly trying new products and making little (or big) changes to my routine, and lately, I’ve become a tad bit obsessed with all things skincare. At the end of the day, I still have a TON to learn and I’m excited to bring y’all along as I do some deep dives into skincare. Slash what…

The 6 Face Masks That Changed My Life

Y’all, this headline might be a tad dramatic, but it’s the freakin’ TRUTH. I asked y’all if you wanted to hear more about my favorite face masks in a recent beauty post, and I’m pretty sure everyone said yes – so here we are! Honestly, sometimes I forget to write about this kind of stuff because it’s just part of my beauty routine, but since there is clearly interest, I’ll…

The Key To a Healthy Complexion with SK-II

   As you’ve probably noticed from the content I’ve been publishing on my blog this year, I’m trying my best to become a healthier person. Throughout my early twenties I didn’t feel a huge need or pull to focus on health, mainly because it seems like that’s just done for you. You have a faster metabolism, are still strong from sports played in high school or college, your skin is…

Routine Skincare for Great Skin

Leopard Scarf // Black Swing Dress // Lipstick (#28) // Bronzer // Highlighter // Mascara // Eyeliner After posting this photo on instagram the other day, I got a few questions about my skincare routine lately and/or if I’ve been doing my makeup differently. I haven’t changed up my makeup (aside from adding highlighters), but I have started to pay more attention to taking care of my skin lately. The older I get,…
