Going to try to get in a quick blog before leaving for the Bahamas tomorrow. Simply put, New York City was magical. I got to see the city and experience it with some of my dearest friends. It was definitely an experience I will never forget.
While I was there, my skin was ridiculously dry! When traveling, I try to skip the makeup and apply extra moisturizer to eliminate dryness that may occur due to flying. After a day in the frigid city, I was desperate to exfoliate, so I made a make-shift face scrub out of sugar packet, lotion (pea-sized amount) and a touch of water. I followed it up by using my favorite face wash and lots of moisturizer! It's all about making do with what you have :)
Quickie make-do foundation while traveling: mix a little moisturizer on the back of your hand with a smear of concealer and apply all over the skin with a non-latex sponge.
Another travel tip: Forgot your body moisturizer? In a pinch, hair conditioner can eliminate dryness.
OK, time to go pack. This Christmas is going to be interesting for me. I miss my dad every second. His powerful and joyful presence will be especially missed this weekend. I hope everyone has a blessed Christmas and spends it with the ones they love most.
Thank you for reading :) Until next time...
