Phew. There is so much to do this month! It’s already starting to stress me out. Like I mentioned in a post a couple weeks ago, I’m a meeting planner for my day job and we typically run on 12-16 month timelines so having a 30-day timeline really stresses me out. I know some of you will probably think I’m crazy because I can definitely get ready for a move within thirty days. There’s the organizing, getting rid of things I don’t need, packing, signing my new lease, and more. Yikes. Moving is the worst!
My skin can be very sensitive to changes in water. I noticed this a lot when I traveled to Chicago a few weeks back. Even just with a few days of showering and washing my face in new water, I broke out all over my chin. It’s something I’m absolutely worried about when I move. In addition to the stress of a move, having a full break out is something I don’t want to worry about.
How I Tackle Stress
To prepare for upcoming stress, I always like to pamper myself a little bit. Last Friday, I took the evening to have a girl’s night in (me and Starla) and make a spa night for myself. I took care of my poor feet and gave myself a mini-facial. I’ve recently been hearing all about the new Charcoal line from Bioré and about how they can clean 2x better than a basic cleanser. So I picked up their Bioré Deep Pore Charcoal Cleanser and Bioré Charcoal Pore Minimizer. I wash my face with the cleanser every day and then supplement my routine with the pore minimizer about 2-3 times per week. Game changer!
One thing that I’ll note is that if you’re like me and have a nose-ring, I always stray away from anything that has micro-beads because they can easily get stuck in my nose ring. This Bioré Charcoal Pore Minimizer uses micro-crystals, but they are absolutely serious about the micro part. I haven’t had an issue with them irritating my nose ring.
You can purchase Bioré products right at your local Walmart in the Personal Care aisle. I love that the Bioré Charcoal line is formulated for oily skin because the cleanser really does keep the oil under control without over drying my skin. It leaves my skin smooth and ready for a light face of make-up using just a bit of mascara, eyeliner, and blush.
With this new skin care routine, I’m positive that I’ll be able to tackle my move and combat breakouts during the whole process.
Do you prep your skin for future stress? Have you ever tried a charcoal mask?
