    I'm trying not to think about the fact that Justin is starting school in a couple weeks (noooo). But alas, it's an inevitable fact that I need to be an adult and accept. Back to school season brings back all the feels. My last "first day of school" was three years ago, and I do miss that excitement that comes along with it - excitement for a change, a fresh start, and unknown possibilities. Now I just work so every day is kind of the same :P
    But with the sense of "fresh start" in the air, I'm making it a goal to take better care of myself. Go to the gym more often, eat healthier meals, and take time to primp myself. Summer is laid back and I tend to get a little lazy in my routine, but with Justin cracking down on school work, it's time for me to crack down and focus on what I want to accomplish the next few months as well, before the end of the year.
    I swung by my local Target and picked up a few skincare essentials. Lately my chin/jawline area has been breaking out a bit, and we all know that the foundation of pretty makeup is to have great skin. I love Target's selection of skincare items because it's affordable, there are lots of options, and they are GREAT products!
    Lately I've been lazy and have been using Justin's face wash, but we have different types of skin so it's about time I got my own! I got the Aveeno Positively Radiant Cleanser. This cleanser is formulated with ACTIVE NATURALS® Total Soy Complex to help improve skin tone, texture, and clarity for brighter and more radiant skin. My face tends to break out easily when I try out new products, but I knew I could trust this cleanser because it's gentle for sensitive skin. I also love that it's oil free! The moisture-rich formula lifts away dirt, oil, and makeup without over-drying your face. I like to use this both morning (to wake up my face!) and night (to clean off my makeup). Be sure to pat dry your face to avoid some of those future wrinkles!


    Next I treat any pesky breakouts with Clean & Clear Advantage Acne Spot Treatment. Sometimes you just get little breakouts that you need gone ASAP, you know?! It feels like I always get one big pimple in the most awkward looking spots (right in the middle of my forehead, right next to my nose, etc). Say goodbye with this product's breakthrough formula (2% salicylic acid and proprietary synergistic naturals complex). It has been clinically shown to quickly reduce the visible signs of breakouts while being gentle and mild to the skin! This is a product I've used in the past, and love it.

    Last but definitely not least - it's time to moisturize! I love Neutrogena's Oil Free Pink Grapefruit Moisturizer because it smells AMAZING, and its sheer formula blends naturally into your skin, evening out the redness and blurring the look of acne marks. Its formula contains technology to actively clear breakouts and instantly conceal imperfections. I save this for last to lock in that moisturization!
