A while back, I wrote a post about switching up your skincare routine for summer. It can be so very frustrating to think you've gotten your skin figured out only for the season to change and it's almost like you're starting over at ground zero. The truth is that our skin can actually be very different depending on the season. My skin is oilier in the summer and super dry in the winter, but I've figured out ways to take care of it differently that work well for me. So, if you are using the Some Call Me Crunchy Facial Care Products, here are my winter suggestions:
1.Switch up your cleansing oil: During the warmer months, I use the normal/combo version of the Some Call Me Crunchy Cleansing Oil. When it starts to get cold again (usually around the time we have to turn on the heat), I switch to the dry/mature version. If you've been using the oily/acne prone version and you've realized that your skin is drier, switch up to the normal/combo.
2. Use Your Serum Twice a Day: In the winter, I apply our oil based serum after cleansing morning and night. In the spring/summer, I only apply it after cleansing at night. Also, be sure that you are using some sort of moisturizer with your serum. At night I use our body butter as an overnight moisturizer and in the morning I use this one by Beautycounter*.
3. Toner, toner, toner: Make sure you are using a toner. Some Call Me Crunchy Complexion Mists (we now have two scents: lavender + rose and calendula + frankincense) are the perfect way to tone your skin year round. They help balance out oil production and hydrate the skin which is what you need to prevent acne and wrinkles.

Over the past months, I've learned that I have a lot to learn concerning the history of our country and the issues of systemic racism. I've recognized that I, too, have biases that I was unaware of. Waking up to this reality has felt a little like grieving or at least going through the grief process. It hit me hard in the beginning and I was sad and angry. Then I didn't know what to do with the pain of it and was overwhelmed by it all. And now I'm accepting the fact that I have a lot of work to do and that this is a marathon, not a sprint...
"For me, becoming isn't about arriving somewhere and achieving a certain aim. I see it instead as forward motion, a means of evolving, a way to reach continuously toward a better self. The journey doesn't end. I became a mother, but I still have a lot to learn from and give to my children. I became a wife, but I continue to adapt to and be humbled by what it means to truly love and make a life with another person. I have become, by certain measures, a person of power, and yet there are moments still when I feel insecure and unheard. It's all a process, steps...
