#Quarantineandchill means this gal gets to go no makeup for the next two weeks! Trying to look at the bright side of being stuck in the house! I have said it before but I am that girl who never leaves the house without makeup on— even if it’s just to get groceries, go to the gym, sit on the beach, etc. I have texture, hyperpigmentation, freckles, + indentations from acne. Years and years of caking on heavy makeup has taken a toll on my skin which is why I can’t wait to just let it breathe!

My skin is one of my biggest insecurities— I hate when people talk about other women and say, “Omg did you see what she looks like without makeup on?” or “I don’t understand why people need to put on makeup every time before leaving the house?” Those are usually the people who have close to perfect skin and don’t understand what it feels like to suffer from acne. Acne makes people feel depressed, ugly, and embarrassed.

I see the way people look at me the first time they see me without makeup on— they stare, seem confused, and slightly uncomfortable. I wear so much makeup that most of the time people don’t realize how flawed I really am. I don’t wear that much makeup because I want to— I actually hate doing my makeup— but that’s the only way I feel comfortable enough to be around people. Since I’ve started using @curology {not sponsored} I have truly noticed a difference in my skin— less breakouts, not as textured, and my spots are softening. I highly recommend giving Curology a try because they take the time to get to know you and YOUR acne problems. You have to submit some pictures of your bare face, take a skin quiz, and then they make a custom solution formula based on your skin results.

A few others products that I am currently loving are the following…

Summer Fridays— Jet Lag Mask— If you’re looking for some extra hydration, this is EVERYTHING. I am currently on my second tube of it and it’s worth every penny.

Tatcha— Eye Cream— Perfect for reducing the appearance of fine lines + wrinkles from your under eyes.

Laneige— Lip Sleeping Mask— This is my HOLY GRAIL lip mask. I have turned so many people on to this. It’s so buttery, smooth, and extremely moisturizing. Your lips don’t know what they are missing!

I can’t wait to see how my skin looks over the next two weeks of letting it breathe, taking care of it, and keeping my hands away from my face! For anyone else who suffers from acne— I am here for you, you are not alone, and we are B E A U T I F U L ✨ #acnepositivity #skincare #loveyourflaws
