Tip of the Week: Beauty Hack

Packing can be so stressful. I always question the weather, what I really need, and how I’m going to fit everything in a carry-on! The less I can bring with me the better! Recently I ran out of makeup primer and was frantic to find an alternative using something around the house. I hate putting makeup on my skin without it because I tend to break out and get oily. You could say my skin and I have a love hate relationship. After a little research I came across this great find…Aloe Vera! Turns out it’s actually been the answer to my prayers. If you’ve read some of my other blogs then you know how much I love to use all natural products. The less chemicals the better in my opinion. The Aloe Vera certainly didn’t disappoint either. I’ve been using it religiously and I always bring a travel size with me on vacation because nothing puts a damper on your holiday like sunburn! Now I don’t have to spend a ton of money on primer and I get to save room in my makeup bag!
