Ladies! Let me just start by saying I’ve had the best shaving experience of my life. I made my own shaving cream and it’s made a world of a difference. If I’m being honest, I don’t shave my legs all that often. Just if I have an extra special event or once the hair on my legs starts to get pulled by my pants…that’s the main influence, really. Since we’re heading into summer, I thought I’d share my DIY shaving cream recipe for you to try out.
Before I get into my fave beauty products of 2017, let me give you a little context. Everything I use is, to the best of my knowledge, cruelty free – that is my number one criteria. On a less serious note, I’m on a never ending quest to have perfect skin.
I consulted a MD who specializes in dermatology to get to the nitty gritty of my skin care routine. I’ve never had problematic skin, it’s a little sensitive and I’m just a secretly vain person. Here’s what I learned: water is your best friend. Your hair and skin can’t benefit from hydration if your body isn’t taken care of first. Pore size has a genetic component so you may never see the minimized results you’re looking for. And when it comes to your skincare routine, less is more.
With this knowledge in hand, here are the top five beauty products I’ve been crushing on so far this year.
