Sponsored by Mirum Shopper. All opinions are my own.
Lately I’ve been on the hunt for products that aim to treat my skin and hair for the issues I’m having as I age (not just things to make me look younger.)
Being in my 40’s comes with a plethora of issues that are both as a result of my actions when I was younger (or inaction in terms of taking care of my skin and hair) and the normal course of getting older. Yay me.

(Has this happened to anyone else??) I wanted to go back to a much lighter version of brown while retaining the look of it being natural. Read more
In the skin department, Summer usually means oilier than normal skin for me.
Which also means clogged pores, and at times, acne prone skin accompanied by dehydrated and irritated skin thanks to time spent in the sun and insane amounts of sunscreen.
One of the best ways that I deal with summer skin issues is by relying pretty heavily on face masks. For me, it’s just easier to introduce face masks intended to treat my particular skin woes than to change my entire skincare routine; plus masks always makes an at-home facial feel incredibly indulgent.
