The Best Face Moisturizer With SPF For Working From Home

This post is in partnership with Olay. All opinions are 100% my own. 
Working from home has been my routine for almost two years now. I had it down to a science what my weeks and days would look like. However a lot has changed for me over the past few months. Not only did I have a baby but the current events has really forced me to change my whole work from home routine. I wanted to walk you through what I call my effective new mom, new normal routine looks like. 
I get up about two hours before my baby to get things going in mornings. I head to the bathroom for a quick shower and spend some extra time on my skin. This is my treat to myself in the mornings. Spending quality time to tend to my skin gives me a fresh and energizing feeling. It's like if my skin looks and feels great, I feel good in my overall vibe. My routine is also minimal but really filled with care, especially when it comes to moisturizing and protecting my skin. Olay definitely has some of the best face moisturizers with SPF and I'm loving this Olay Regenerist Whip with SPF 40. You'd be surprise how important SPF is even while working from home. My rule of thumb is, if its daytime, SPF is a must. Olay Regenerist Whip SPF 40 is light, absorbable, breathable, all while giving me good moisture to maintain my skin all day. You know how some SPF products gives that sticky feeling on your skin,? not this moisturizer- it's light as air and that’s why I label it the best face sunscreen. Most days I am make-up free but if I feel the need for a little foundation or so, this moisturizer is also super blendable and works great under my makeup. I feel good knowing I am giving my skin the care and attention it needs and I feel it definitely shows. 

 Once I am done giving my face that extra care and attention, I make myself a good cup of coffee. For some of you it may be tea, water, green juice etc. I love the aroma of coffee in my home in the mornings, it just does something to me and gets me into a productive mood. This is also self-care for me. If it makes me happy and get my vibe going, I am all for it.  
STEP 3: 
I usually crank up the music to my current favorite song while making my coffee. I do a little dance and shuffle my way to set up computer, planner, and essentials to get my day going. 
Once am all done, I then make my way to my computer with a yummy cup of coffee, a moisturized and nourished skin, to get as much as I can before my baby wakes up. Again, this is such a new normal for me but having to adjust waking up 2hrs or so before her is paramount. It makes me one happy mama throughout the day. 
I hope you found this post useful. I hope your biggest takeaway is the importance of self-care and using SPF even when working from home. You should definitely try Olay Regenerist Moisturizer SPF 40. I couldn't recommend it more especially if you're in the market for a face moisturizer with SPF. 
Have a great day.


Primers For Dry, Oily, & Combination Skin

Hi Guys,

Sharing some of my favorite primers for different skin types. Dry, oily and combination. I get asked a lot what to use to help makeup stay longer and I always encourage primers and setting sprays. It's not just any primer but ones that actually are for your specific skin type. How do you know what your skin type is? It's easy to tell. Are you normally oily all over your face, even after you've washed it or worn powder? Then you have oily skin. If you're always dray and cracking at different or all areas of your face, then you have dry skin. If you have a mixture of both, some areas dry, some areas oily, then it's combination skin. I personally have combination skin. I get a little oily on my t-zone (middle forehead, nose, around mouth, & down to chin). Sometimes, I am dry more around the rim of my face or even around my mouth. 
So here's a list of some of my favorite primers listed by skin types. 
This Tatcha Primer is great for oily skin. It gives a nice blur effect and sits perfectly under moisturizer. Although it's perfect for oily skin, it also serves very well combination skin. This is probably my most used primer and I have combination skin. 
This Pop Beauty 'No Shine Primer' is exactly as the name says, no shine. This makes it excellent for oily skin. It mattes out beautifully on the skin which makes for excellent makeup application. 
This Dr Brant Pores No More Primer is another great option for oily skin. I love using this along my t-zone. If you've got large pores or pores problem, this is your go to. It seems they have a new packaging. I love it.
For my dry skin beauties, you'll absolutely love this bareMinerals Blemish Rescue primer.  I love this brand and their clean beauty products. If you have somewhat a sensitive skin too, this should be mild enough a primer. Try out their line of lipsticks and foundations as well. 
Another good one for dry skin. I love the extra boost of hydration this Smashbox Photo Finish Primer gives. My makeup glides right over it so smoothly. I love wearing it at nights if I am going out as it gives my skin that extra glow under my makeup. 
Lastly, this Tula Blurring & Moisturizing Primer. This is great for combination skin. It blurs oily areas and moisturizes dry areas. 
Hope you found this post useful. 



Beauty Products For Working From Home

Hi Guys,
I decided to write this post because of a few questions I've gotten about my skincare routine from my followers on Instagram. My skincare routine changes monthly even if it a switch, addition or removal of products. I do use multiple different products in rounds because my skin (as with others) get use to products easily and then it's not as effective anymore. Always mixing things up works great for me.
Considering working from home, our skincare routine will look a little different. A few things to consider are, temperature, exposure to sunlight, exposure to computer/tv screens to name a few. For me, I live in California where the weather is dry most times. It's Spring time now and it's beginning to warm up so that means  have switch things up. 
Currently I'm using this cleanser (brightens + gives natural glow)in the mornings and this one (great for hydration) at nights. I'm also using this serum (plums and firms) in the mornings and this one (transforms my skin smoother & softer overnight) at nights. For my moisturizer, I'm using this one in my morning routine and this one in my nighttime routine. I do an overnight mask every three nights using this mask. Every Sunday I do a regular mask and this is the one I'm currently using. At some point mid week, and in between overnight masking, I will do a sheet mask while watching TV. I love a good eye cream and I use this one at nights and this one in the mornings. Finally, a lip mask/treatment is so essential as we tend to forget that lip-care is just as important. My go to for SPF is any of Olay's SPFs. I have a wide range and I use it for daily walks as well as hanging out on my balcony. 

I have combination skin so my routine might now work for everyone. Here are options for both Dry and Oily skin.



I've used all of these products before and I can confidently recommend them. I often will try a product and know instantly -this is for oily or dry skin. I'll often give them away to friends and family who are of that skin type and follow-up on how they like it.
