6 Lightweight Sunscreens to Wear Under Your Makeup

Tomorrow is a VERY exciting day because I am finally releasing a much anticipated episode of The Ask Abbey Podcast where I interview the ultimate skincare queen of all time… my mom! Lucky for us, she has worked in the beauty industry for years, so she has tonsss of expertise on skincare. I won’t spoil the episode for you, but dang it’s juicy. Make sure to subscribe to my podcast so you can listen in right when it’s posted! As promised in tomorrow’s episode, I am giving you a list of Mom-Approved SPF brands to reference back to after you tune in to the episode! The amazing thing about all of these brands is that the SPF is super lightweight- so you can wear it underneath (or in place of) foundation! FYI: Of course, just because a brand isn’t listed doesn’t mean that she doesn’t approve of them. These are just her absolute favorites!

Why You Need to Start Double Cleansing Your Skin ASAP

Thinking about how I used to fall asleep in college after a night out with all of my makeup still on makes my skin CRAWL. Like I actually can’t even think about it without cringing. We all know we’re supposed to wash our face before we go to bed, but… a makeup wipe can just do the trick instead, right? Girl!!! No. Properly cleansing your face is so important for removing all sorts of junk from your skin- debris, sweat, dirt, foundation, etc. etc. etc. We have both oil based impurities (like sebum) and water based impurities (like sweat) on our skin. You know how oil and water separate when you try to mix them together? This is exactly why we need both an oil and water cleanser in our lives! We need oil cleanser to remove the oil based impurities and water cleanser to remove the water based impurities. So while a makeup wipe will help to remove your makeup, it won’t properly cleanse your skin and remove all the grime that has gtg …

These 2 Foods Are The Reason Your Skin Is Breaking Out

If you’re up to date on Ask Abbey content, you know that I spent the last two years suffering from hormonal acne. It started out as a zit here and there on my chin, but before I knew it I was never without some sort of breakout on my chin or jawline. More often than not, the breakouts were cystic and they HURT. If you’ve dealt with this or are currently dealing with this… I feel your pain! I spent months and months researching how to cure my skin.

The 8 Vitamins I Take Every Day to Keep the Dermatologist Away

When I started dealing with hormonal acne about a year and a half ago, I spent months researching & testing out ways to cure it naturally. In the process of doing that, I also learned about vitamins that can help with general health & before I knew it I had a sliiiightly out of control combination of 8 different vitamins a day. I KNOW. This sounds ridiculous. But, if you’re struggling with constant breakouts like I was, you’re willing to be a little extra to put an end to it. My skin is definitely not perfect, but this vitamin regimen has made a night and day difference for me. To hear more about the causes of acne, hormonal acne prevention, and products I’d recommend to treat acne, listen to the Ask Abbey Podcast Episode #8! Also, how cute is that pill organizer?! It’s compact so it’s perfect for travel or your work tote, and it juuuust fits all of my vitamins in it perfectly. But if you take more than 6-8 vitamins/pills (depending on the …
