I Got You: Exfoliant Style



See. Look, guys. Bebe's got you in the middle of this barren desert and she's got a Jeep. With some water to boot. 

Sometimes this is what cool people do. They get your back and make you not feel alone in this world. Praise to our daily Bebe's in our life. 

It was the wise Robin Williams that said...

He's also right on point about how some of the most hurt, sad people are also the nicest because they no longer want another human being feeling so worthless ever again. True dat. Well said.

The Labyrinth Movie

At the end of the day, I challenge all my friends and readers to overcome their adversities. Unfortunately life is like those Labyrinth staircases. A few steps upward, several downward then horizontal and then at the end of the day you don't know what friggin' door to choose. This too shall pass. Let's all...

Woooosaaaahhhhh...

Then, right after that I'd love for Martin Lawrence to tell us about that nice looking fish with big friggin' eyes...

Bad Boys II

Baby, let me in. I want to be your friend as well as give you some awesome skincare and beauty recommendations. The cracks in that barren desert are reminding me to tell you that I'd really like for you to exfoliate that earth as well as hydrate it. The same goes for your Summer skincare routine.

Dermalogica Daily Superfoliant, $58
Peter Thomas Roth FirmX Peeling Gel, $48
Shop them here.

Peter Thomas Roth's Peeling Gel is meant to be rubbed on clean, dry skin. You'll need about a nickel size. In a circular motion, this bad boy will roll off dead skin cells and is powered with enzymes. Once you've had a field day with how much dead skin rolls off, you can leave it on an additional five minutes for the enzymes to really make your skin exfoliated.

Dermalogica's Daily Superfoliant is also an exfoliating bad boy. A bad boy II? Hehe. After you cleanse, you'll take a half-teaspoon sized amount, add some water to make a paste and rub in for roughly a minute. This exfoliator is powered with charcoal, enzymes and alpha hydroxy acids.

Next up is an amazing hyaluronic acid infused moisturizer that is safe for all skin types...

Vichy Mineral 89 Moisturizer, $29.50
Shop it here.

Oil-free and packed with a fifteen mineral infused thermal water, this hyaluronic acid serum blend is awesome for Summer. Lightweight with a quick absorption rate, slather this on right after you cleanse your face. We're obsessed and we would never steer you wrong. Remember, Bebe and I got you.

Enjoy. And wooosaaahhh...

Never Forget These Truths


In my heart, I will always be sure 
of a few things in life. 
Do you care to know what they are?

Giphy

I will never apologize for being all or nothing. The answers to life are pretty simple and if you can't reply to a question with a heck yes, then the answer is heck no.

Giphy

Read this bad boy here.

This advice has also done me well with regards to my career. Do you think I've let people in my job walk all over me? If I have, I've made them deeply regret it throughout the years. One needs to understand that no one has ever wholeheartedly understood or accepted my career path. Cue in...

You've got you, boo. I'm too old for this crap of needing anyone's acceptance or approval. Sometimes the only thing holding you back is yourself. So stinkin' what if your circle reeks of suckiness?! Stop your whining and grab your big girl panties. You can do it. I'm sooo exhausted from drowning in your self pity. There are kids starving in third world countries. Let's get real about the fact that you're not really a victim. Furthermore, maybe God is giving you a lesson to show you how thick your skin really is.

Giphy

Do good and good will come back to you. It's the law of the universe, bro. One cannot argue with the laws of attraction. Energy cannot be created nor destroyed, correct? Then if that's what we're seriously debating, we all better be transferring around some good energy because again, I'm too old for this mediocre, crappy crap these small-minded individuals be transferring around my universe.

Giphy

Say what you want, within reason.
Not saying what you want will only leave you feeling mildly dissatisfied. I don't know about you, but I for sure don't want to be knocking on the pearly gates wishing I could of done or said something.

Giphy

Enjoy life, especially if it involves things that make you happy, such as but not limited to, bacon.

Shout Out To These Surprising Beauties



This is a shout out not to my ex, 
but to these surprising beauty wonders. 

They've kinda made me who I am as of lately. Let's all live legit together erstwhile slathering these below recommendations all over our faces.

Shall we?

Milani Conceal & Perfect Foundation, $8.99
Shop Target here.

If you've got some skin issues such as hyperpigmentation or acne, you may want to conceal it about as bad as your last break up. Delete those pics, block those numbers and rejoice in this Milani water resistant concealer and foundation in one easy to use pump. Not that we particularly want you crying over spilt milk, but tears happen people. Now that you've got a foundation on that won't budge, you can grab that kleenex with the lotion inside, dab those tears away and rock out to the best break up playlist known to man. Hallelujah moment. This foundation is soooo smooth, by the way. Probably waaayyy smoother than your ex.

Juice Beauty Organic Lip Moisturizer, $15
Shop Juice Beauty here.

Stop your sniffling and get your smackers in check. Make your lips who they were meant to be, okay? Your new man is going to love the orange vanilla flavor of Juice Beauty's organic lip moisturizer. This is truly the only thing I recommend to clients who come to Ulta in desperate need to fix their parched lippies. It's also a staff favorite. Those in the know use it and these are the very same people that have confidence you'll get your groove back.

Estee Lauder Re-Nutriv Floralixir Dew, $120
Shop Dillard's here.

If the word regenerating in the name of Estee Lauder's floralixir dew water isn't an omen for recovery, then I don't know what is. You're dehydrated, honey. Mentally and physically. Nourishing, strengthening and uplifting, this dew water is the polar opposite of your ex. After washing your face, we enjoy pouring a bit of this into our hand and pressing it into the skin to not only hydrate, but to also boost radiance. 

Giphy

Never let your ex or your skin ever bring you down again.
Ya heard me?
