Step Away, You Don't Need that New Beauty Product

That’s right. Exit out of that cart.

This is a quickie because we are all adults and you already know this.

As the holiday sales begin, I need you to HEAR ME on this one: YOU DON'T NEED THAT THING. You don't! And you know that you don't so why are you doing this?

Our skin thrives when it has a healthy routine (unless you're one of those people who can use 5 new different things every single day, and in that case: you amaze me) and when we stick to it, we start to see some real change. It can take up to 3 months (I know, I know) for me to see positive change when I add something new to my routine. At the very least it takes a few weeks for me to see a change when I am using a type of mask regularly! New products can shock the system and leave you with purging, breakouts and dryness. And girl, that is not a cute look.

So, before you splurge on that ridiculous rainbow mask or whatever - ask yourself if it's worth it. We live in a consumer-driven world where there is so much waste and the choices we make, especially during the holiday season, really impact the world. If you are going to splurge, go for earth-friendly brands and organic, vegan and cruelty=free options where you can. More on those soon, just felt like this needed to be said because I too, am a victim to the holiday sales.

Just because it's on sale doesn't mean it's a good deal for everyone. Maybe try out that whole minimalism thing this year?

Spread love, friends.
