It’s now been two years since Beautypendence launched in September 2011. Wow! In that time, not only have I partaken in wonderful spa treatments and tried on A LOT of makeup, but I have learned tons about skincare. More specifically, I’ve honed in on what works best for me. We are all unique and different, so each of us requires a customized routine.
I have dry skin, fairly sensitive with mild rosacea. My skin responds better to gentle treatment. The more I do to my skin, the angrier it gets at me. All in all, I count myself lucky. (Thanks for the good genes, Mom!) But don’t you doubt for a second that I work at maintaining my healthy complexion. Here’s a look into my current skin regimen, day and night.
It may be pseudo-winter here in Austin, but the weather is still dry and killer on my skin. And in order to avoid picking up yucky germs, I’m an avid hand washer (see graphic above). Consequently, my hands require extra attention during this season. As you may have gathered from reading this blog, I *might* have a slight obsession with caring for my hands.

A while back, Wendy posted her morning and evening skin regimens. At the time, I was still trying out some products to see what would make the cut for my own skin routines. Now that I’ve decided on my line-up, it’s my turn to share.
The product I was having trouble deciding on were daytime and nighttime serums. Serums should be rich in skin goodies, and due to their thin, liquidy consistencies, they’re able to deliver those goodies deeper into the skin. So you see, it’s important to find the right one for you. Here’s what I’ve landed on:
I enjoy wearing eye make-up, and sometimes, I like to get a little dramatic with it. As my fellow smoky eye-wearers know, the downside is taking it off at the end of the night. And I do mean completely off.
I’ve tried many eye makeup removers, but my favorite of all time is definitely Mary Kay Oil-Free Makeup Remover. I’m convinced there is no better eye makeup remover for the price ($15).
I have my dear friend Amy to thank for this find. A few years ago, I was visiting her in the DFW metroplex, and I had forgotten to pack my eye makeup remover. Amy said she had just the thing for me. Continue reading →
