Vacationing in the fall will always be one of my favorite things. Why? Because Florida really only has two seasons. Summer lasts 95% of the year, and our very mild winter covers the remaining 5%. I try to capitalize on any opportunity to witness changing leaves and attend local fall festivals. In addition to spending a few days in Charleston for a blogging conference, Kyle and I are staying in rural Maine all season long– just until it gets unbearably cold. I’m a little nervous, though, since traveling to a bunch of different places in a short period of time always messes with my complexion. I usually break out when I’m stressed and/or in a new habitat.
Another added complication to my fall skincare routine is that I don’t have enough space in my luggage to transport the ingredients of a complex skincare system. So, upon the recommendation of a friend, I entrusted a new baking soda cleansing scrub from Bioré to do my bidding. It’s a brand new baking soda cleanser scrub, and it’s pretty awesome. I’ve been using it 2-3 times per week for the past few weeks of travel. Fortunately, my climate-confused, combination skin is loving the results so far.
If you’re curious how a baking soda powder can help free your pores, it activates with water to transform into a fizzy foam that exfoliates, deep cleans, and smooths away dead skin cells. Basically, what you’re left with is visibly cleaner and healthier skin. It’s surprisingly gentle, too, and you can dial up or dial down this scrub’s intensity by adding water.
Another great thing about adding this baking soda cleansing scrub to your fall skincare routine is that it’s virtually impossible to over-scrub. It dissolves as you cleanse, so there’s little risk of irritation. I’m a textbook example of how cleansing too aggressively can actually do more harm than good, so the powder is actually a huge benefit for me or for anyone who’s prone to inflammation.
So, in the last month alone, I’ve attended a 3-day blogging conference in Charleston (check out a few photos from the trip below), driven over 22 hours in one sitting, and spent a few weeks with 20+ members of Kyle’s family in Damariscotta, Maine and Kingstown, Rhode Island– and I’d say my skin is still looking pretty darn good thanks to Bioré!
