 My skin changes multiple times on it’s own during the year and never for the better. When the seasons change my skin’s moisture (that I work on so hard to balance and find a routine in) depleets and I’m left with tight, patchy, and sometimes scaly skin. Trust it me, makeup only makes it look worse.

Throw pregancy into the mix and those hormones will drive you crazy about your ever evolving skin!

This past month I switched out all my Winter heavy moisturizers and tried Clarins Hydra-Essentiel Intensive Moisture Quenching Bi-Phase Serum and Silky Cream. My skin seems plumper (especially around my eyes), smoother, and quenched. 

What do you do for your skin when the seasons change?

Thankfully I’ve found 1 product that I love that is easy to apply and creates the look I want. I’m always interested to know what brow products you use, so don’t be shy please comment below!

The sun feels so good after a rough first trimeter during the winter. Though it’s technically Spring time here, it feels like Summer to me!

At some point this week Matt and I want to go thrift shopping, and check out a new coffee place every morning with the girls. Other than that we don’t plan on too much shopping, just playing with the girls in the pool and soaking up the Vitamin D.

Edmonton Beauty Blogger Faux Tan For Fair Skin Edmonton Beauty Blogger


It’s especially tempting for myself to lay in the sun all day with minimal or no sunscreen on because I want a beautiful tan that proved I went somewhere hot, but I know the damage it does.

Roasting my skin is not worth the irreversible damage of sun spots, saggy skin, sallowness, wrinkles, and skin cancer that can age you 10 years. Imagine looking like you are 10 years older than you truly are… that’s something I want to avoid.

So I fake it!

I always bring a gradual tanner on trips while I wear my wide brim hats, SPF 60 sunscreen, and stay in the shade I look the part of a bronzed, sun loving tourist.

How To Survive Staying In A Hotel | Travel Skincare Essentials

Dry Skin Travel Skincare Essentials

Edmonton beauty blogger travel skincare essentialstravel skincare essentials how to survive hotel Dry Skin Skincare

After spending the weekend in Lethbridge, Alberta (one of the windiest and driest cities in Alberta, especially during the winter) my skin felt like a raisin. I intentionally packed my only “ultra-hydrating” mask because I could tell it was going to be a rough weekend skinwise as soon as my girls wanted to go into the pool. The chlorine plus the dry hotel air made my skin a mess. I needed to make time to fix my skin with my travel skincare essentials that evening.

To fix my skin in the evening I washed my face with ice-cold water, gently exfoliated with just water and a face cloth. I applied the Pura Watermelon Mask then waited 10 minutes before washing it off. After I dried my face with a towel I applied first the Beauty Counter Face Oil and then Burt’s & Bees Radiance Night Cream.

The mask created this natural barrier for my skin and my skin instantly felt smoother after I rinsed it off. It smells great too – a lovely subtle watermelon scent.
