Biteworthy Skincare

The-Fashion-Bite-Katie-Roof-Andalou-Naturals-Pumpkin-Glycolic-Mask

Let’s talk about skin.

I know… here we go again. Yes, I have a skin obsession! It’s pretty much the first thing I notice about people, I want to know everyone’s skin care secrets ( like, I literally ask randoms what they heck they use on their face to make it look so good ) , and if my skin isn’t looking flawless I freeeaaakkkk. Like crawl into a whole, hide under a blanket, become a hermit, & spend hours on hours researching online.

Lately my skin has been a little… lackluster shall we say. I think it’s ready to shed it’s winter coat. I’m not crazy about going to the derm cuz sorry, but I just don’t think that benzoyl peroxide and popping a pill is the answer to life’s problems… and that’s often what the doctor orders.

Soooooo… I visited my local health food store to see what they had to say. They were raving about this mask, so I had to give it a go!

Andalou Naturals has an amazing line of skin care. It’s all natural, cruelty free, GMO free, and certified gluten free… score! After testing out The Pumpkin Honey Glycolic Mask I am totally sold. My skin literally looks 20 x better than it did 10 minutes ago. No joke!

Here’s why this mask is so amaze…

+ Pumpkin is rich in beta carotene. Natural enzymes remove dehydrated cells to brighten and smooth the skin.

+ Manuka honey soothes and heals to clarify and restore balance to the skin.

+ Glycolic Acid acts like a gentle, mini-peel by exfoliating dead cells and impurities.

+ Vitamin C evens tone, boosts collagen production, increases cellular turnover, and fights free radicals.

Introducing What’s In My… Wednesday!

I don’t know about you… but I’m obsessed with “what’s in my” posts on blogs, articles in magazines, YouTube vids, etc. etc. What’s in my purse? What’s in my makeup bag? What’s in my closet? What’s in my kitchen? I love it all! Maybe it’s a bit voyeuristic… but I love feeling like I’m getting a secret sneak peak at people’s fav products.

I’ve had a few “what’s in my” posts on the back burner. As a self proclaimed product junkie, it seemed like kind of a daunting task… plus I’m constantly buying and trying new products, testing out new recipes, and finding new favs. [<– thus, what’s in my fill in the blank changes on the reg].

Instead of spilling all of my secrets at once, I decided to break it up. This way I can keep all of my little ‘doos [that’s you] super up to date on my current favs! I’ll be sharing my favorite beauty products, tastiest GF recipes and snacks, and of course those random little products that totally make my world go round. Pretty please comment below or let me know via FB, Twitter, or Insty if you have any special requests! I love hearing from you guys!!

If you haven’t already caught on… I’m pretty darn excited that it is finally Fall!! So, to kick off What’s In My… Wednesday we’re going to start with what’s in my kitchen! I want to share one of my favorite Fall treats with you! This is how I start each and every day. To me, it tastes like a nice warm cup full of heaven. It’s my take on the traditional PSL [Pumpkin Spice Latte], only IMHO it’s way tastier [and healthier too]!

In the past I was a total coffee addict. It was bad. My body needed coffee to function. If I didn’t have a huge cup of coffee [or ten] upon waking I would be hit with an excruciating caffeine withdrawal headache. The only fix for that was more caffeine. Needless to say it became a vicious cycle. I recently made the transition to tea and honestly… I feel like a million bucks.

It tastes so rich and creamy, fills me up, and warms my heart! P.S. It’s good over ice too ;)

So… what’s your favorite way to start the morning?
