I've also included my Tatcha Japanese beauty papers to blot that excess oil as the temperatures are rising because it's never cute to have an oily face. I love these particular ones because they are powder and fragrance free so I'm only taking away the unwanted oil and not layering excess gunk I don't want on my face. I prefer this over mineral powders to touch up during the day because I don't like to use my puffs or brushes mid-day after oil starts building up on my face. I like to minimize my face-to-puff action after the first application at the start of my day. This can help avoid build up of bacteria, which is the cause for acne.
I always like to pack a body lotion of some kind because I have very dry skin and I always like to feel moisturized throughout the day. My favorite body lotion right now is the Jergen's Wet Skin Moisturizer. It works even better on wet skin so it's perfect for those who are in a rush when you're getting out of the shower or if you just like that cool feeling on those warmer days.
I always pack a hand sanitizer wherever I go, especially on outings because you just never know if the place you'll be going will have a bathroom. They're cheap and small so they're easy to take around in your bag and you will definitely get a ton of use out of it throughout the day. Having it handy, just makes me feel better about the day. No one wants bacteria-infested hands. Let's stay germ-free, y'all.
Finally, my Kindle fire! I love reading to unwind. It's very relaxing and truly opens up your mind to wander-- my favorite. I love to day dream so it's the perfect time to meditate and soak in every word. This is my perfect spring break activity. Currently, I'm reading "Tiny Beautiful Things: Advice on Love and Life from Dear Sugar" by Cheryl Strayed, one of many books my sister gifted me one Christmas. I'm only at the beginning but it's a collection of articles from a popular advice column collected from a well-known literary site. It's opening up my fairly secure world into a darker world that makes me feel quite grateful about the life I have right now. She also gives great love and relationship advice, which I'm all about. Give me all the love, please. Thank you.
