Cocokind's $16 Chia Seed Oil Works Wonders On My Combination Skin  — And It's Packed With Omega 3

As a vegetarian, I learned that omega-3, a vitamin that I once thought was only available in seafood, was still something essential to include in my meals. And one of the best and easiest sources of omega-3, I learned, is chia seeds.

Whether if they're in my oatmeal, or on top of nut butter on some toast in the morning, I do my best to get my daily dosage of them because of their wondrous ability to reduce inflammation and the fact that they're loaded with a bunch of healthy antioxidants.

Little did I know until recently, chia seeds can produce the same benefits when applied onto your skin as oil, thus prompting me to do some more research on the matter and leading me to purchase Cocokind's Chia Facial Oil.

What it is:

@naancymaac

With extremely simple and clean ingredients, only containing chia seed oil mixed with chamomile flowers, the oil is this pale, translucent yellow color that gives off a faint, slightly salty, but fresh scent. When applied to the skin, it has this loose, but a rich and velvety texture that makes it moisturizing, as well as hydrating.

How I use it:

After washing my face, I go straight to applying the oil before anything else.

Using the dropper, I apply two to three drops of this oil on my hand, massaging it in my palms, then patting it onto my cheeks, neck, and beneath my eyes. I do this twice a day: once in the morning and once at night.

I then proceed to apply whatever serums, moisturizer, and eye cream I plan to use, as well as makeup if I am wearing any that day.

How it worked for me:

Having combination skin, I have always been a bit wary of applying oils to my face. Often times, the natural skincare oils that I've experimented with in the past leave my face super greasy and shiny- and not in a flattering way.

Cocokind's Chia Facial Oil is extremely lightweight and has given me the summer glow of my dreams!

Its simple formula, which causes it to be so lightweight, allows it to be the perfect base for whatever moisturizer or makeup foundation you choose to apply after. Whether your summer skincare routine consists of 3 products or has 10 steps, this facial oil is a deserving addition, and you won't regret spending the $16 to add it in!

Get Cocokind's Chia Facial Oil from Ulta for $16.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.
