MY SKIN CARE ROUTINE UPDATE: Ultimate Eye Cream by Skederm


We are almost into the 4th month of the year and I am still figuring out which skincare products suit my skin the best. Over the past few weeks, I have been using Skederm’s Ultimate Eye Cream twice a day.

I really like this product. It’s the first eye cream I have ever used consistently and it feels so good on my skin. I definitely see a difference in how hydrated the skin around my eyes is now that I have been using this product.

I love the smell of the product and it’s easy to use. I also have sensitive skin but this eye cream has never irritated me. It actually soothes my skin.

One thing that is very important to me with skincare products is that they have to work well under my makeup. I won’t use a skincare product that messes with my concealer or foundation. That’s a dealbreaker for me. But, as long as this eye cream has enough time to absorb into my skin (which takes a little while, not gonna lie) it works perfectly under my concealer.

I haven’t noticed any physical differences in my skin yet but I understand that this kind of eye cream prevents wrinkles and sagging in the future. I will definitely be posting more updates the longer I use this product.

You can find SKEDERM Ultimate Eye Cream on Amazon. Give it a try and let me know what you think!

New Year, Better Me.


“New year, new me!”… not quite.

I won’t become a different person this year. I will still be me, but I will become a better me. The turn of the new year is an opportunity to change your lifestyle and commit to making healthier decisions for yourself. I have made a list of my new year’s resolutions that you should consider adopting as your own resolutions.

1) Commit to a daily skincare regimen.

As a girl in my early 20’s, I know how important it is to care for my skin NOW in order for it to look my best as I age. I’m ready to put the acne wash aside and start using something more gentle that doesn’t treat my skin like the enemy. I have been doing my research on different products and can’t wait to start testing them to discover my favorites! *Be on the lookout for a post soon about the skincare regimen I like best*

2) Drink more water.

What we put ON our skin is one thing, but what we put IN our bodies is another. Staying hydrated is one of the keys to having healthy, glowing skin. Drinking water does more than care for just our skin though, it helps just about everything. Drinking enough water can prevent headaches, help with digestion, weight loss, improve mental and physical performance, along with many other perks. Breaking Muscle says to drink half of your body weight in ounces. So If I weigh 110 pounds, I should be drinking 55 ounces of water daily. I am now committed to drinking the recommended amount of water for my body each day starting now! *Sips water*

3) Use my phone less.

I am pretty good about the amount of time I spend on my phone but I still want to focus on spending even less time on it this year. I always put my phone away during meals and that’s one thing I will continue to do. More importantly, I want to take everything in. Life isn’t about experiencing things for other people to see, even if you’re a blogger. It’s important to remember that your life is for you. So put the phone down and be present.

4) Get away more. 

Pack a bag and take a weekend trip somewhere with someone you love. It’s easy to get caught up in things that don’t matter. Don’t be afraid to get away. There are so many inexpensive ways to travel nowadays, too. So take advantage of companies like Airbnb and get out of town!

I am really excited about my four resolutions for 2017 because they are attainable. Make sure your new year’s resolutions are realistic so you can make them happen and become a better version of yourself this year!

Leave a comment and let me know what your resolutions are this year!

Happy 2017!
