Navigating My Way to Healthy Skin with SkinFix

Happy Makeup Free Monday! Today, we're talking skincare. I have to admit, I've never had perfect skin. Well, maybe before puberty... But ever since then, I've had mild acne, enlarged pores, oily t-zone and even patchy dry skin, depending on the weather. I'm not even exaggerating when I tell you that I've tried everything out there for my skin. My current approach has been natural or natural based products. I had already changed my eating habits to organic, non-gmo, so why not my skin? What you put ON your body is just as important as what you put IN it. I've tried many different brands of natural beauty products, loved some, others not so much. Enter SkinFix...
I started using SkinFix about two weeks ago. They're a Canada based company, that uses natural ingredients like Coconut Oil, mineral-rich Canadian Glacier and Brazilian Volcanic clays for a deep detox and my skin is loving it! They smell amazing and leave my skin feeling refreshed and so soft. The Foaming Oil Cleanser is amazing! It removes my makeup and toxins from the environment with very little effort. I really love that these products are dermatologist recommended, free of synthetic fragrance, parabens, phthalates and sulfates, which means healthy skin to me. They've won so many awards, like the prestigious Allure Beauty Awards and the Cosmopolitan Beauty Awards, it would be crazy not to try them. AND the icing on the cake? They're cruelty-free, affordable and available at Target

Floral Romper & Rose Curls

Hello, Lotuses! I hope you're enjoying the last part of Summer. This Texas heat is no joke! Last weekend we had a record breaking temperature of 105 F, but that didn't stop me from going out to support the local events being held that day. Although, when I got home I totally crashed from exhaustion! At any rate, I wanted to share how much I love this new romper I found at none other than Ross, and of course it was a total steal! It's cotton so the fabric was perfect and breezy. I just love it. I thought I'd wear heels that day, but I found these flat slip ons and I've been wearing them none stop for the last month. The ruffle detail is the perfect delicate flair I need in flats. So, I'm not sure if you noticed, but I went a little pink for my birthday a few months ago, and I've been able to maintain the color without damaging my hair or spending a fortune. My bff introduced me to Overtone and I'm obsessed! They have color conditioners and weekly deep treatments that refresh my color and protect my curls just by depositing the color on my existing highlights. I think I'm going lavender next. What do you think?

Hola, mis Lotos! Espero que estén disfrutando lo último que queda del verano. Este calor de Texas no está jugando! El fin de semana pasado tuvimos temperaturas que rompió récord de 105 F, pero eso no me detuvo de apoyar actividades de ese día. Aunque cuando regresé a mi casa, caí muerta del cansancio! De todos modos, les quería compartir lo mucho que me encanta este romper que casualmente encontré en Ross y claro está a un precio increíble! Es de algodón así que el material es super fresco. Me encanta. Pensé en llevar tacones, pero también encontré estas sandalias y me las he puesto constantemente como por un mes. Tiene uno volantes que le dan un toque delicado perfecto. Bueno, y no sé si se han dado cuenta, pero me teñí el cabello de rosa hace unos meses para mi cumpleaños, es sutil, pero ahí está. Me lo he logrado mantener sin dañar mi cabello y sin gastar una fortuna gracias a Overtone, que mi mejor amiga me recomendó. La línea tiene una serie de acondicionadores que depositan color y unos tratamientos semanales que refrescan mi rosado y me protege los rizos sólo depositando el color en mis "highlights" existentes. Creo que para la próxima me lo cambio a una lavanda o algo así. Qué creen?
