I’ve suffered from acne ever since the 5th grade. But, you’d never know it now thanks to my daily skin care regimen of amazing over the counter and prescription products. As someone with incredibly oily and sensitive skin, I never cease to be flattered when I get compliments on my skin. For over 15 years, I’ve used prescription pills, face washes, and creams in an attempt to keep my skin clear. After visiting a dermatologist a few months ago, I finally found the perfect complexion cocktail to keep my skin radiant. Without further ado, here’s the skin care routine that I swear by.
In the morning, I wash my face with Cetaphil DermaControl Oil Control Foam Wash. I then moisturize with Cetaphil Oil Control Moisturizer SPF 30. Lastly, I apply Acanya, a combination of Clindamycin Phosphate and Benzoyl Peroxide available by prescription only to fight acne.
At night, I again wash my face with Cetaphil DermaControl Oil Control Foam Wash followed by CeraVe Facial Moisturizing Lotion. As the final acne treatment of the day, I apply the prescription cream Tazorac.
Thanks to this treatment, my skin is absolutely glowing. I really only wear foundation when I feel like it. If you’re not happy with your skin, getting prescription acne treatments isn’t difficult at all. Since most general doctors treat acne, you might not even have to go to a dermatologist to get the products you need. Though the out of pocket costs tend to be a little higher than your average medical costs much of the expense is still covered by insurance.

Lately, I’ve been absolutely obsessed with Instagram. I even find myself pausing moments with friends and stopping on the street for long periods of time just to get the perfect shot. So when celebrity stylist, Jen Rade, aka The Wicked Witch of Wardrobe, pulled together her top five tips on how to get “InstaFab” for Instagram, I immediately took notice. Jen makes a living out of helping people look their best in photographs. So not only does she feel right at home when determining what works and what doesn’t as a Project Runway: Under The Gunn judge, she can also show you how to take the perfect selfie. Enjoy her InstaTips:
Red lipstick is the one statement piece that can take your look from average to great – even jeans and a t-shirt look better with red lips.
Show Your True Colors
Any color is the best color to wear for a selfie – that’s what filters are for! The whole point of a selfie is to express yourself so there’s no right or wrong.
Less is more
When it comes to makeup and accessories, everything can’t be something!
If at first you don’t succeed…
Play around and take 10 selfies until you find the right light and angle. Lighting is the most important!
Filter or no filter?
Sometimes I use filters, sometimes I don’t. I go for whatever makes the mood of the picture look cool.
I miss New York Fashion Week already. See you again in September!
If you used #MBFW, your Instagrams appeared on the Instagram wall in Lincoln Center.
More hotness from Betsey Johnson FW14!
The lovely Lindsey Vonn made a statement on the runway at the Red Dress Collection 2014 show.
On the way back from Pier 59, I walked by this creepy hotel and was intrigued.
It was a fabulous week!
For Betsey Johnson, fashion is always flirty, bright, and fun! I’ve long been a fan of her bold designs. So when I got an invite to her Fall 2014 runway show, nothing could stop me from attending. Though I originally had standing room only, right before the show started I spotted an unclaimed seat in the third row and snatched it up faster than you can say ‘fabulous.’ Not only did I get these amazing photos of the collection themed around all things hot, but my seat ended up being directly in front of the one and only, Miss Paris Hilton!
Betsey’s show was a red hot smoke show of fab fashion! It even included smoke and fire fighters to put out the fire caused by this insanely hot style. I loved the brilliant reds, statement necklaces, and overall fabulousness of the whole event. I tweeted that it changed my life and I meant it.
On almost every red carpet, you hear about old Hollywood glamour, but rarely do you hear of evening style inspired by the old and also glamourous New York. Pamella Roland‘s Fall 2014 collection, brought me back to old New York City complete with jazz clubs and cabarets. Her evening looks were complete with equally elegant coats.
