After battling adult hormonal acne for the past eight years I am always hunting products that can assist with healing blemishes. Prior to having my daughter I had clear skin requiring minimal maintenance. However, my hormones shifted and now I battle with skincare regularly. Nothing can replace stress management, diet, exercise and hydration but sometimes my skin needs a little extra care. I’ve been a fan of Dr. Jart’s skin care line for a few years. I’ve found their products are deep cleansing and healing without drying my skin out.

Today I’m sharing about a recent campaign I did on Instagram with Dr. Jart. These FocuSpot Blemish Micro Tip Patches are perfect for blemishes on the go. They come individually wrapped making it easy for me to throw them in my toiletry bag. They are also really easy to use! You simply cleanse your face and apply the patch for two hours. I put mine on while I was getting ready for the day. Right before leaving I removed the patch and applied moisturizer! The redness diminished and my blemish was significantly less swollen. I highly recommend using these!

Three Heel Clicks - Three Casual Looks with Yoga Pants (7).jpg

Athleisure is trending right now and it’s not just reserved for the gym or yoga studio. I love being athletic and getting a good workout in, but I also love looking put together whether I’m at the gym, home or out running errands. On days I do not have meetings or photo shoots you will find me more often than not in athleisure. I love mixing and matching yoga gear with cotton tops, hoodies and casual accessories like baseball caps or totes to take an outfit from workout to street worthy. Today I’ve put together three looks where I’m wearing workout clothes out in public.

Outfit #1

Three Heel Clicks - Three Casual Looks with Yoga Pants (6).jpg

The first look I wore last week to dinner and then to a hotel before we flew out to Birmingham, Alabama. I wore a pair of simple black slim fitting joggers, a loose black cotton tank, a pink hoodie and grey sneakers. This look can easily work if you are doing a lot of travel or walking for the day. Chances are you already have black leggings or joggers, a tank and a colorful hoodie or zip up! Just throw it all together and swipe a little nude lipstick and add mascara to take this look out for a spin.

Outfit #2:

For the second look I wore a pair of cropped yoga pants with a light pink ruffle top for a quick coffee run. I added a pair of blush sneakers and a structured bag to go from the mat to the real world. Finally, I added a pop of color with a sunflower yellow sports bra. Remember, the rule of three colors. You can mix and match outfits by sticking to three colors. Here I used teal, pale pink and yellow but you can accomplished this look using any three colors.

Outfit #3:

For the third look I am wearing a monochromatic outfit complete with maroon leggings, a sports bra and long sleeve cotton tee. I added a blush hat and blush colored sneakers. Since I wore this look to pick up groceries I brought along one of my favorite bags from Longchamp that’s perfect for toting things home.

5 on Fridays - Five Travel Skincare & Beauty Products I've Been Addicted To

Three Heel Clicks - 5 on Fridays - Five Travel Skincare & Beauty Products I'm Addicted To (6).jpg

Oh the joys of travel! I’ll tell you the one thing that has been a challenge to conquer when I travel is how to fit all those wonderful beauty and skincare products into a tiny little cosmetic bag. The same goes for my makeup, but I’ll be sharing more about that in a future post! I’ve tried countless products in all sorts of trial sizes over the years and am happy to report that I may have found a winning combination. Today’s post, I’ll share five travel skincare and beauty products I’m addicted to using on my latest trips.

Three Heel Clicks - 5 on Fridays - Five Travel Skincare & Beauty Products I'm Addicted To (2).jpg
  1. Clinique Clarifying Lotion - This is a step 2 of a three step program by Clinique. I’ve been a fan of the brand for two decades now with little dissappointment. Their products are created for all different types of skin, especially dry skin! When I’m traveling I like to bring along some sort of toner that’s less drying than what I might use in Houston. Houston is full of humidity and smog so when I head to dry climates my typical products oftentimes make my skin feel tight. Not this one though! I’ve been using it for about two weeks straight and it’s proving to be such a winner.

  2. Mario Badescu Drying Lotion - This product was one I was recommended to use. It is so awesome and hasn’t dried out my skin. You’re supposed to take a cotton swab and dip it into the pink sediment at the bottom of the bottle then dab it directly on blemishes as a spot treatment overnight. I found in the morning it washed off easily and helped soothe redness without causing my skin to peel from over drying! With it being under $20 for a bottle, it’s almost silly not to grab some!

  3. Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion - This one is step three of the above skin care system. Although I switch out the cleanser depending on my needs I really like the soft lightweight smooth texture of the lotion. I’ve added it back into my morning routine and then use a retinol product at night to start combating those finicky lines growing on my forehead and around my nose. Although I am not one who has tried Botox, I have nothing against it. I am just choosing to age with nature and accept that I am growing older. This lotion though is really helping my skin not get clogged but still retain moisture.

  4. Suave Moisturizing Conditioner - This travel size is larger than what most hotels offer and if you have dry, thick or curly hair you know how much more conditioner is needed. I go through half the amount of shampoo as I do conditioner. Suave tends to make great products for hair of all types. I love the size of this particular one and it smells wonderfully clean. I try to use hotel shampoo to save space, but usually bring along some sort of conditioner to combat dryness.

  5. Schmidt’s Lavender and Sage Natural Deodorant - I switched to natural deodorant a few years ago and love it! I’ve tried a few other brands, but picked this one up out of convenience at Wal-mart. It smells like I’m using essential oils and I’ve randomly been complimented by strangers asking what I am wearing when I have zero perfume on. My answer is deodorant. Yep, if nothing else at least I made it to deodorant that day. I’ve also found it’s one of those scented products that doesn’t irritate my skin!
