Skin Care Journey And My Top 5 Tips

How I have transformed my skin over the last four years

For the last four years, I have received many compliments on my skin but it has not always been as clear as it is today. My freshman year of high school, I never wanted to leave the house because my acne was at its worst. The acne was stubborn and after trying everything, my dermatologist finally recommended that I begin Acutane. I would not recommend Acutane for anyone, unless you have tried absolutely everything. Although Acutane helped my acne be less stubborn, it did not stop breakouts completely. I have become obsessed with skincare over the last four years, and below are my top five tips to keeping your skin glowing, clear and fresh!

Always Remove Makeup

My favorite makeup wipes!

This is so important. Never sleep in your makeup. The makeup will soak into your pores over night causing clogged pores which lead to breakouts. I recommend throwing a pack of makeup wipes in your bag and with only a few wipes you're ready to hit the hay!

Moisturize, Moisturize, Moisturize

I have used this moisturize for years, highly recommend!

There is nothing more your skin hates than being dry. Just like your thirst for water, your skin thirsts for moisture. Especially during the cold months, you want to make sure your skin always has that extra moisture. Without moisturizing, your skin will then produce oil to help combat the dryness, but that extra oil will then cause blemishes. So, don't forget to moisturize!

Visit your Dermatologist, They Know What They're Talking About

Your skin is your biggest organ, so getting it checked out by a doctor is super important! Make sure to go at least once a year and they can help prescribe anything if you need extra help.

Drink Water and Then Drink More

Water is your skin's best friend. Water helps get rid of enemies like acne, dryness, extra oil, dullness, you name it water can help. Make sure to be getting in a lot of water every day to keep not just your skin happy, but the rest of your body too.

Face Masks. Period. 

My favorite face mask! Great price too.

Your skin goes through a lot, so it is vital that your treat it like royalty at least once a week. I love face masks for this. Face masks help remove everything the skin doesn't want as well as helps relax your skin. I put on a face mask two times a week!

8 Reasons Girls Who Love Tequila Are Better

There are all kinds of alcohol stereotypes out there but the one associated with tequila is probably the worst: tequila makes you crazy. But if there's one thing we can all agree on, it's that women who drink tequila are one-of-a-kind.

Whether it's loving or fighting, you'll never find anyone who does it better than a girl who just straight up loves tequila, and here are a few reasons why that is.

1. She's independent

A girl who drinks tequila is probably the same girl who has absolutely no problem telling it like it is. She knows what she wants and goes after it.

2. She doesn't care what you or anyone else thinks

Oh, you have a problem with me taking shots and having a good time? Well, get over it! Bartender, a shot with salt and a lime please!

3. Always dancing

Tequila is an 'upper' so instead of sitting at the bar doing nothing, let's dance! Let's get moving!

4. There is never a dull moment

Speaking of dancing, a girl who drinks tequila is always down for a good time. Whether it's going on an adventure or seeing who can take the most shots, a tequila girl is always down to party.

5. While everyone else is starting to get sleepy, she has all the energy

Like I said, tequila is an 'upper' so while the other girls at the bar are starting to feel groggy and sad, she's all over the place having fun and partying on the dancefloor.

6. She's stronger than the girl crying over a vodka cranberry at the bar.

Sad over a breakup? Don't go for the vodka... Tequila will make you feel better in no time! Plus you can challenge the hot guys at the bar to a shot taking contest.

7. Tequila is healthy for you

Tequila is a probiotic, so some tequila a day keeps the doctor away. Yay for shots!

8. She can hold her own when it comes to alcohol

Any girl who can shoot some shots at the bar all day and night can handle alcohol, which means she can handle herself too. You won't have to deal with her constant breakdowns and mood swings because she will be too busy ordering more shots.

Barbeques on the 4th of July, pick-up trucks on a summer's country drive, and staring out at an endless sea of stars by a campfire are just a few of the luxuries of living in the South.

These only get better once you find yourself a southern gentleman - someone who's hard-working, puts family first, minds his manners, and upholds southern hospitality. If you don't believe me, then these country songs will make you change your mind.
