What can I say? Yesterday was LIT!
I was honored and extremely lucky to score an invite to the Urban Skin RX Influencer Brunch yesterday, hosted by Toya of NaturallyShesDope (if you're wondering, Toya really is a super DOPE chick and so were all the beauties in attendance!) You guys, I had a blast!
We met at the Barcelona Wine Bar for a late brunch. The food was amazing, the drinks were refreshing, the service was outstanding and the company was highly entertaining. We laughed the entire time, sharing our hearts, passion and skin concerns while networking and learning about solutions that Urban Skin RX has developed to handle our various skin situations. Catalina, the company representative was professional, but also a hoot (and beautiful)! She gave us pointers and so much information about how this line can help us to address and fix every issue we suffered from individually and collectively. Personally, I'm dealing with long standing acne that is embedded deep under my skin and fine lines that are trying to wreck my entire denial of being a 40 something year old woman (lol). Y'all, I have hope!
Now, I realize that I don't talk about my skin woes often. I'm really trying to be about more than just outer appearances and it is easier to hide behind my hair (well, it was until I started cutting it off every couple of years, but that's a story for another day). Truth be told, this struggle has been all too real for me for YEARS. While I was lucky to have clear skin through my adolescence and teen years, hunty, when I hit 28, all that changed. The constant battle between hiding the rough skin and bumps, covering up blemishes and fading hyper-pigmentations with expensive spa treatments or caking on pounds of makeup and hiding behind concealers, cover up and more powder on top of that... Let's just say I have truly learned to find my self worth between my ears and behind my rib cage instead of what I was wearing or how I was looking all the time. But what doesn't kill us makes us stronger, right? Character building... yea, mmm-kay. Anyway...
What is Urban Skin RX?
It is a natural skin care brand that caters to melinated skin tones and the dermatological issues we deal with on a daily bases. YASSSS!! We need more companies like this! Check out their website here. If you're having a skin issue, they probably have a solution. I took their skin quiz and it clearly laid out a plan for me to follow. [happy dance!] I can't wait to get started!
They say that in your 40's you inherit the skin you took care of in your 20's. Jesus take the wheel! So I am starting a 30 day challenge today, using this line I've now heard so much about and have fallen in love with. My goals are to try and heal some of the damage done over the years, reduce or possibly reverse early signs of aging as well as clear up this pesky little adult acne problem I've been dealing with for too long. You can follow my 30 Days to Healthy Skin journey on my Instagram page @carlahelene. I'll be posting pics of products I'm using and progress photos throughout the month of May on my Instagram feed and writing weekly about it here on the blog.
