Avoid Breakouts with My Favorite Moisturizers

Let’s talk moisturizer! It’s that time of year where the weather really messes with your skin causing dryness, irritation, and breakouts. It’s the worst! If you’re breaking out like crazy it’s because you’re not moisturizing enough. Even if you think you are, you’re not. What happens is that your skin gets so dry that nothing can come out of your pores causing you to breakout and even get those nasty underground zits that are sooo painful. I learned this from my girl Julie at Mirelle’s Studio. She gave me a facial and she could barely do extractions because my skin was too dry. This is when I started to use a good moisturizer that got the job done. In about a month’s time frame, my skin cleared. It’s funny that something as simple as moisturizing can do the trick. I’ve tried countless creams, gels, and even eliminated certain foods from my diet. Who knew?!

This weather totally sucks but your skin doesn’t have to. Below are my favorite moisturizers both drug store and high end brands. Have you tried any of them? What is your favorite moisturizer?  Screen Shot 2013-10-21 at 10.24.38 PM

Drug Store Beauty Find of the Week

I bought this moisturizing facial wash by Simple Skincare for my trip to Miami. It was also recommended by beauty banter. I needed something that would take off all my makeup but wouldn’t dry me out (my skin gets super dry from the sun).


I freakin love this stuff! It’s gentle, effective, and has a light scent that isn’t too over powering. It actually reminds me of an updated version of CeraVe which my dermatologist recommends over Cetaphil. For $8 I have some great face wash with me on my trip- J really likes it too! It also foams up really well for those of you who own a clarisonic.
