Hello hello!! I’ve been getting a lot of questions about the products I’m using on my face and how I’ve cleared up my acne. So today I thought it’d be fun to take you on a little morning routine journey with me!!
First up, I wash my face. That’s a normal first step in a persons morning routine right? Usually I’m still wearing my pjs but I like to dress up nice and fancy for you guys. I’ve been using the acne.org regimen for months now, it’s done wonders for my skin. For those of you who are new, I struggled with cystic acne after my twins were born and tried nearly everything on planet earth to get rid of it.

I’ve since weaned off all the pills, I think my hormones just needed a reset, and am still using the acne.org cleanser and benzyl treatment. Their moisturizer however was leaving my skin super dry. So let us continue shall we?

I’ve been feeling the need to share this little story/thought with you… I’m not quite sure why, but I hope it inspires a few of you! I don’t really know how to title it either… it could be, “how to find happiness” or “how to be a better mom” or “ways to strengthen my relationship with my spouse“. It’s too hard to choose just one because it applies to all! So I guess I’ll just jump into it. SERVE. I DON’T HAVE TIME, MY PLATE IS FULL!!!!! As a mother with 4 young kids, and a demanding stay at home job, and busy church callings, and a husband who works all the time, I’m busy. My plate is full. And serving others doesn’t rank too high on my priority list because it’s straight-up survival mode. Can anyone else relate?! But the other day, it hit me… I serve people ALL DAY LONG! Their names are Boston, Savy, Kai, Cooper, and Brian. At the time, I was
