I created my blog yesterday. There is nothing to it yet but one little test post. I am having the hardest time with the aesthetics of it. I myself am an all things Halloween type of person. Quite dark in my personality. All of which I am perfectly fine with. As i was looking through themes in wordpress of course i managed to sniff out a couple Halloween-ie ones. Would that really work all that well with a beauty blog though. Besides just overall major nervousness about sharing with the world this is my biggest headache right now. Any thoughts on the delicate balance of presenting a blog as close to your personality as possible while not taking away from the subject?
broodingoverbeauty_krystal replied to Haley Hayes's topic in Skin Care TalkI am in love with my Rhonda Allison ezinc protection. I believe it is spf 15. Which for me is fine because I am not spending oodles of time out in the sun, at the pool, beach and what have you. This is slightly tinted but it doesn't cause any problem for my quite fair skin. I love this product line because the majority of it is paraben free. This one is very light, i put my mineral powder over it without any issues. If i will be spending quite a bit of time out in the sun, which here in Arizona is simply a day in the park, I go to my elta md. Elta is also paraben free.They have several different formulations. For my face I gravitate toward the uv clear broad spectrum facial sunscreen. This one is for skin types prone to acne rosacea (like me) and hyper-pigmentation (also like me). Both have worked well under my make up. I think, though, my absolute favorite thing is that they are both physical sunblocks, not chemical.
I think with exfoliating more than anything you need to be careful. If your skin is properly hydrated your body with do the majority of the exfoliating for you. I personally have very sensitive skin, and it looks like i may be developing mild rosacea. My brain says your skin feels so rough, exfoliate and it will be much better. But i only exfoliate every two to three weeks sometimes less. I truly believe hydration is key. Knowing that your skin has natural enzymes which aid the natural exfoliation process and that water initiates these enzymes, i stick to that practice. For me personally when i do exfoliate i like to stick to enzymes as opposed to mechanical exfoliaters such as scrubs.
My name is Krystal. I am an esthetician working to make my place in the world of beauty and skin care. Once upon a time I did a acquire a state licence in esthetics, but life happened and I really didn't do much with it. I do, however harbor a fairy intense passion for all things beauty related. I am working toward re-acquiring that license so that I help others with their skin care needs. The beauty industry is something I really want to expand my knowledge of, I know the basics but find myself spinning on wheels on all the new things out there. That would be why I have started here. I would love to connect with more people that have the same passions that I have. I am looking forward to hearing all your opinions and advise on everything beauty. A few more personal things about me. I am 29 and a Scorpio ( if that means anything to you, great. ) Makeup, skin, nails and everything beauty have been apart of my life all my life. When I learned that I could go to school for this stuff and make a living doing it possibly, all other options faded. I have a kitten that is going on four months old and I am absolutely obsessed. I apologize for the long winded first little post here, but thanks for reading it, if you got this far.
