No Makeup

This is not a sponsored post.

While we were living in Brazil, my skin started getting really icky.  I had breakouts like I never used to get, the texture became uneven and patchy, and I had discoloration.  I have no idea why.  Maybe it was the ridiculously hard water (our white tiles were stained brown and my skin itched after every shower), the questionable drinking water, stress, or just the polluted atmosphere...

Since being back in the States for one week, I've adopted a new skincare routine.  I've used MaryKay Timewise for many years (my mom and sister are both consultants), but since coming back I switched to MaryKay's new Botanical Effects, and my sensitive skin likes it a lot better.  I also started using the night solution every night.  My skin cleared up in a few days!  I'm so impressed and happy.

Here is a photo I took with my iPhone... no makeup, just me in my mom's living room:

I wish I had a "before" picture to show you, but alas, I don't.  You'll just have to trust me that it was really bad... My mom even told me, while Skyping one day, "Whoa what happened to your face?  You always had such great skin and now it looks horrible!"  Uh... thanks, Mom!

So that's my story... all that to say... I'm glad to be back!  And if I ever move overseas again, I'm stocking up on my skincare essentials!


This is not a sponsored post, but if you are interested in MaryKay for yourself or a friend, contact my mom or sister.  My mom's website is and my sister's is (she is just starting to build her business and would love to help you).  They ship products anywhere, and they're always available by phone or email.
