Ahh, summertime. The time of year where walking around in a bikini top is acceptable, leaving your hair in a salty, wavy mess is preferred and your skin is warm from the hot summer sun. On the other hand, all these fun "summertime beauty" routines can be fun and well, attractive, but have you taken the measures to protect yourself against the long-term damage that can come with these short-term beauty changes?
Here's a quick note on my beauty savers for a flawless (and harmless) summertime look!
Stripped of moisture, reverse aging effects, dry flaky skin.... isn't that what we love? HELL NO! We all want a clean, fresh-faced, hydrated feel and beauty (including makeup too!) can help us achieve this BUT have you ever looked at the back of your products? You know, the extremely tiny fine print on the back of the bottle, jar or tubes that lists the ingredients that you are actually putting on your skin?

To get this look:
I'm a 24 year old from Seattle, WA who's a little out of the ordinary. I have a unique style that i've learned to adapt to what I l love, and not what is deemed "acceptable". Fashion is a chance to explore, take risks, and have FUN. Isn't that what life is all about? ;)
