How to Get Rid of Those Jowls in 5 Minutes



Hi, hello, we meet again, & SHOCKER…we’re talking about skin.

Facial massage is something I get asked about over & over. & yes, we’ve talked about it many times on The Skinny Confidential but I wanted to show you guys how to do it without a tool, just your hands & a bomb ass oil. This way you can do it anywhere, anytime, for practically free.

This specific oil we’re using is one of my favorites. I’ve talked about it before- it’s Superfood by Elemis. I’ve talked about it 100 times, yada yada, I know, BUT IT’S SO GOOD. It’s one I’m constantly going back to. Superfood is lightweight, really gets into the skin to nourish it, & reduces fine lines & wrinkles which makes it perfect for facial massage.

Benefits of Superfood Facial Oil by Elemis:

♡ highly concentrated vegan formula.

♡ contains antioxidant & omega-rich broccoli, flax seed & daikon radish to …

Drugstore Obsessions: 3 Things That Need To Be In Your Makeup Bag


drugstore beauty products


Hey guys, what’s up?

You know I love a good drugstore find. I’m very specific about these finds & there are ones I keep going back to over & over & can’t stop talking about. & the reason I can’t stop talking about them is because they work.

A lot of you have asked me about skin products from the drugstore, so we’re going to focus on the one skin care item I love, then talk about the 2 other finds that I’m addicted to.

You can expect all 3 of these to be in my makeup bag because, fun fact, the skin product also lays nicely under makeup. This post is for the babe on a budget who is in high school or college. I feel you. I used to be there. I totally get it. To this day, I’m a sucker for an insane drugstore find.

If you’re like me, you walk …




I LOVE IT- you know if you’re following along on IG STORIES.

I’ve been obsessed with skin since I can remember. Really though, I remember being like 19 under an umbrella with SPF & a huge hat on while all my friends were baking. To me healthy, glowy skin represents YOUTH! So screw spending a bunch of money on makeup, I would rather save it for skin.

That being said, I’m a huge fan of having a night time routine ( as well as a morning routine ). There’s something so therapeutic about winding down at night & having a specific skin care that you can rely on. & one that makes you wake up with glowy, dewy & buttery skin too.

It was super fun to pair up with Dr. Mona Vand who is a big skin care fanatic just like me. We share both of our routines on …
