This portrait may come as a huge surprise to the people who personally know me. As a makeup artist, I personally consider it is so crucial to have flawless skin; the truth is, that’s not always possible. I’ve made some severe decisions and my final step was Accutane (which can cause depression, seizures, and cracking of the skin.) I was willing to take those risks. With a ton of research and an angel with a wealth of information on products, I was truly saved.

1. Cut dairy, NOW!

a. Milk/Cheese/Coffee Creamers contains components related to the hormone testosterone that may stimulate oil glands in the skin, setting the stage for acne.
b. Try using the alternative. Non Dairy Creamers, Almond Milk, Silk Milk, etc. Trust me, this made all the difference in the world.

2. Drink like a fish.

a. Water that is… water removes all impurities and toxins in the body. It helps flush out lingering pollutants in the system and helps clear the face and body.

3. Eat Clean.

a. If it’s frozen, microwavable, or pre packaged. You may want to consider the alternative. Keep in mind, this is not for everyone, but I was desperate and willing to try anything.

4. My Main Savior For My Acne.

a. Rodan + Fields, if you have never heard of it, you need to get used to this name… I live, sleep and breathe this product. After only 3 weeks I saw major results.  Unblemish does exactly what the name says. It has now been 4 months and I’m not perfect but I see the forest through the trees. The product keeps working and working. I’ve been recommend this product to all of brides as well who want a clear complexion for the most important day of their lives.

Here are a few photos to show my progress.

Day One: First Day on the Unblemish Program.

The Cold Front Look for Less

As a Floridians we often get confused on how to dress for the random cold fronts that come along. Some of us pull out ski jackets and ugly uggs and other of us dress appropriately. OMGTRENDS found a perfect “Florida Cold Front” outfit that can be worn at night or day.

floridians-be-like

The gorgeous Jessica Alba nailed it when it came to a “Florida Cold Front” outfit. Even though she is not from Florida, she has to deal with weird weathers. She wore the right amount of winter clothes to keep her warm, but also look fashionable.

 

jessica-alba-2-290She pair jeans with a blue long sleeve, a patterned scarf, some black chunky boots, and a cute hat. This outfit can be worn in 50 degrees  to 60 degree weather. It will keep you warm, and keep you looking cute. You can also throw on a cute jacket if it hits the low 40s.

Meet the Moto Sweater

OMGTRENDS would like to introduce you to the moto sweater. Yes its a real thing. Every women needs one in their closet, especially for Florida’s weird weather. The moto sweater is a sweater that can be dressed down but also can be dressed up. The beauty of this amazing sweater is that it’s so versatile and can be worn in any type of weather.

You can wear the moto sweater with pencil skirts with tucked in tees, leggings,and your favorite weekend jeans. Heres the catch, the sweater is big enough to where you can wear a fux fur vest or a winter jacket. It’s an oversized sweater, that looks very appealing.

If you have some extra cash from the Holidays, OMGTREND def recommends you spend it on a moto sweater. It’s a piece you will wear all this winter, spring, and then bring it out again in the fall. It’s a classic piece that EVERY woman needs.
