Sorry about that.  :/ Well, let me tell you that these past few weeks have been iffy for my hair care routine.  Everyone told me that having a baby around was going…

The L.O.C. Method for Skin Care?

Has anyone tried the LOC Method as a part of their skin care routine? I know under normal circumstances this is a bit much, but I’m currently six month pregnant and my stomach is getting noticeably bigger now.  All of that skin stretching going on (in such a short period of time) has me worried about stretch marks.  Plus, I’m…

Lately people have been asking me a lot about my skincare routine.  And I’m a little taken aback by it because I feel like my skin is no different from most other people.  I still get pimples (and I have the dark spots to prove it! lol.)  But if you remember one of my earlier posts I explain my skin…

Recharging my Skin

Lately my skin’s been feeling drab and yucky.  I’ve been slacking on my skin care regimen and trying new products.  Given the current state of my skin, it’s time to get back on the Wash, Exfoliate, Tone, Treat and Moisturize routine.  I will spare you the before pictures, but I’m going to challenge myself to 7 days of consistency.  Same…
