My Newest Skin Revelation



Hello friends! Happy Monday! I can't believe it's Thanksgiving week. Who else is pumped to spend time with family?! We are heading to Maryland on Wednesday so I'm excited to see Zach's family and soak in some time with them.

  In the spirit of feeling your absolute best this holiday season I wanted to talk about skincare and confidence. I don't know about you but feeling confident with clear skin is unlike any other feeling. It's been a struggle for me over the past few years and I've spent lots of money trying to figure out what works. During college, I did the Rodan & Fields Acne Regime, it worked temporarily and helped cut the huge blemishes but I still battled after using the product. I spent a couple hundred dollars on the line and personally wouldn't recommend it again. I have nothing bad to say about the company or anyone that sells it, it just didn't work for me. Years later I am able to tell you why it didn't work because I've been doing the wrong thing all along. Everything that I've done on my skin up until a week ago was all topical. Serums, creams, masks, etc.. my skin would clear up some but I would have a hormonal change when mother nature hit and my body would go CRAZY. Not to mention I've changed climates a lot the past few years. Humid, to normal to dry. It's been a whirlwind. Back in September, I decided to try the Tula Acne Clearing Gel and overall was really pleased with the results. I took pictures during the process and you can see they are very positive. If you have some acne struggles I would definitely recommend this product. 
Fast forward a week in late October right before my body started hormonally changing and my acne flared up again. It was a HUGE confidence hit. I would take off my makeup at night and just want to cry. I felt ugly and embarrassed that as an adult I was struggling with something like this. I know a lot of you feel this way and it totally sucks, so trust me when I say I get it. Keep reading because I'm about to share some exciting stuff! 



Over the past few months I've been trying to figure out what works for people and what has helped them the most. I've done the Tula Acne Serum as well as a variety of masks. It cures it temporarily but then flares up again.  I asked my friend Courtney who has BEAUTIFUL skin what she does.  She can wear no foundation and look amazing. I learned something new about her last week and that was that in July she had acne all over her cheeks and within a matter of a few weeks had made a complete turn around. What she's been using is the Juice Plus Omega Blend. If you're like me you're probably thinking, omegas to help with skin?! Well y'all I'm a full believer. Within 10 days my skin has made an INCREDIBLE comeback from taking this product. I have all natural pictures to show it and I asked Courtney if I could share her results with you as well. 




Here's the deal with the omegas... when I think omegas I think fish. Ew gross right?! Fish burps and all that nastiness. Well I'm about to rock your world because that's not what is in these omegas, they are plant based and packed with 5 different types of omegas making an amazing combination for your skin. I don't burp like I used to when I took fish oil omegas. 
I take them orally as well as make a face mask with them once a week. 



The conclusion that I've come to is that you can put topical creams, serums and masks on your skin all day long but if internally your body is struggling the creams will just mask it. By taking something that is flooding my body internally, I've seen an external effect. I know I'll only continue to see more progress. 

All that to say, I wanted to share the two staple Tula products that I'll recommend in conjunction with the Juice Plus omegas. I am LOVING their Purifying Cleanser and Hydrating Day & Night Cream. They have helped externally clean my skin and keep it hydrated. For me personally, simple is best right now as I try to clear my skin and feel confident again.  If you are interested in purchasing some Tula products, here is my personal link to get 20% off your first order! 

I hope these results and my excitement to share this with you has inspired you and encouraged you if acne has been a struggle. I would love to chat with you more so feel free to comment below or shoot me an email. 

Thanks so much for reading friends! 

P.S. Thursday evening all my Christmas decor will be going live so stay tuned for that.

  1. When people think of skincare, they usually think of creams, serums, and face masks. It's kind of a given that the state of your body is going to be reflected in your skin, but I think that's something we often forget or overpass when trying to fix a skin issue. I'm glad these products work for you. I'm currently using Natures Bounty Hair Skin and Nails gummies and I love what it does. If I have the chance, I definitely will try this brand though. It looks like it works wonders!
