winter skincare

This winter, I've added a few products by Yon-Ka Paris to my skincare routine. Clay-formula masks are my favorite, so this weekly clarifying masque is the perfect treat for tired skin. I have also been using their Creme 40 for discoloration after a bad breakout last year left me with some tragic scarring. After being on a strict skincare regimen for the last year per my dermatologist, it's been nice to bring in some new products now that my skin is back on track. Yon-ka's Creme PG is also a great mattifying product for oily skin!


Once my skin is taken care of, adding a few brightening products to my makeup routine makes it feel like spring is coming sooner rather than later. I'm loving this sheer coral/orange lipstick and posy pink blush by Paul and Joe Beauty to add some color to my everyday look. Another favorite is this highlighting crayon by Chella that I received in a recent Birchbox. It concentrates beautifully to highlight the inner eye corner, or you can sheer it out on your cheeks for a lovely, dewy glow. These products have been my saving grace through this harsh Minnesota winter!
