What’s In My Bag? | Lake Tahoe, California 2015

Happy Thursday! Today I get on my first flight of 2015. It feels like forever since I’ve been on a plane. My first flight of the year takes me just up north to San Francisco. While I’ll see some family, I’m really spending my weekend in Lake Tahoe (CA side) with some close friends – our annual snowboard trip! So here’s a look into the items I’ll be bringing with me to help my skin fend for itself. Face Yuli Halcyon Cleanser Tata Harper Replenishing Nutrient Complex Odacité Night Time Antioxidant Repair Serum CV Skinlabs Calming Moisture May Lindstrom Skin The Blue Cocoon Hair Rahua Classic Shampoo Rahua Classic Conditioner Kae Argatherapie Hair Repairing Serum Body Weleda Regenerating Body Oil Pomegranate Due to the short trip, I usually don’t bring a soap or body wash and just use one provided by the hotel.

My love for sleek black packaging is only rivaled by my love for clean white packaging. The white inner tube compartment is encased in clear plastic. Very clean and sophisticated looking. The pump dispenses just enough to cover the whole face. I’ve really loved having it this summer as my skin tends to lean towards combo/dry. It gives me just enough moisture without clogging pores.

Skincare Ritual | Winter 2013

Wow. Is it April already?! This past winter San Diego didn’t have much of a cold season. Due to last winter being so unbearably cold on some days I was preparing myself for another cold snap. However, it was pretty mild with temperatures averaging around 73°F during the day and 55°F in the evening. They don’t call it Sunny San Diego for no reason! So this time around I didn’t have to rely on heavy creams to keep my face supple. Here’s a roundup the products that have kept my face glowing through a typical Southern California winter. Morning 1. Cleanse with Sodashi Clay Cleanser with Lime | 2. Moisturize with Odacite Beautiful Day Moisturizer | 3. Boost skin with Saya Rooibos + Aloe Face Serum | 4. Protect with a mix of Suntegrity BB Cream + Coola Tinted Mineral Sunscreen To sort of wake myself and my skin up I splash water on my face and then proceed to the rest of my routine. During the winter, a thicker cleanser is ideal in order …
