Girls. I found magic in a bottle. Not the kind that’s reverse aging, sorry that’s not real, but the kind that saves your face before a big awards week like we have next week. It’s Mario Badesco’s drying lotion. If you have a pimple (which I've complained about recently on my insta stories), you stick your q-tip in this magic potion to the bottom of the bottle (don’t shake), dab your pimple and it dies. It’s dead. Like, life over. Poor buddy. Of course some are stubborn and take a little longer, but I kid you not, there is no other pimple killer than this. I hope this is around when my twin boys go through puberty because this stuff is magic.


Ok. Here's the deal. I'm at that point in life where I consider wearing my hair down as making an effort. This is truth. So much truth. I'm not complaining and saying my life is in shambles and I can't get my shit together, but listen, twin toddlers that are two years old, are enough for me to want to stay in my pajamas all day every day. And that's not exaggerating. So with all due respect to those who aren't slumming it at home these days with babies and get out in the real world every day with a plethora of products in their hair and on their face, I'm just going to break it down in the most simplest terms, by the most simple laid back non product junkie I know, Me.


It's summer. I've had a bunch of questions about my current routine for face, and so I'm breaking it down here. And here it is...this is my summer face. I'm pretty pale for me, but I keep it that way on purpose, because I'd like to keep my summer face for as long as I can have it. Because I'm no baby. And this mama wants to save face forever, or die trying. (Wish me luck as I'm currently wandering the streets of Laguna Beach today). I talked last month about protecting face with a hat and sunscreen etc, but this summer,  even more so,  I'm not ignoring daily products, in fact, I'm upping the ante. Because summer is just as harsh as winter on your skin if not more because of that hot sun, and because our kids want to be outside all day long, and that means extra attention to self care, aka, you and your face.
