The other day I was in Miami with one of my closest friends Brittney Foley (Beautifoles), who also happens to be an incredible make-up artist in New York. She introduced me to face creams and toners and we spent the weekend lathering ourselves with them morning, noon and night. We joked that we were in our early 20s and we were already using eye cream. But I have started to pay attention to the people in my life that are obsessed with skincare. My grandmother, who looks 20 years younger than she is, and my mother, who's never had a blemish in her life. I came to the conclusion that they must be doing something right.
I'm going to highlight one of my favorite skincare products every Sunday. Some of them I've been using for years, others I've just recently stolen from my mother. (Whoops.) But if I would encourage anyone to invest in anything, it would be their health (which yes, includes their skin.)
Alaffia Daily Rejuvenating Face Scrub - This has been my daily scrub for about two years. It smells great, feels even better and it's less than $10. Everyone's skin is completely different, but I've never experienced a break out, dry skin or irritation. To be honest, I feel like I've just come out of a facial every time I use this.
