Feeling Beautiful in My Skin with Avya Skincare

I have to admit that after turning thirty, I have become more conscious about my skin and I’m frequently trying to find ways to better care for it. It can be a tough to find the right products for women with more melanin like myself. Having found Avya, a line that was “designed to indulge all skin tones,” per the Huff Post has made an impact on my skincare routine with the use of only two products and in a short period of time.

I have been using the Anti-aging Power Serum and the Eye Bright Cream – for the last 7 days and I already love how my skin has started feel in such a short period of time.

Eye Bright Cream

My eyes have always been an area of concern, as I feel that there is a large amount of pigmentation around them. I have religiously used the Eye Bright Cream two times each day per instructions and with each use my eyes feel energized. I particularly like that this cream has caffeine, among other products, like peony and turmeric which helps in reducing puffiness and dark circles. For a long time I blamed it the dark undertones of my eyes on genetics but now I’m excited to see how this cream continues to improve the way my eyes look.

Anti-aging Power Serum

The Anti-aging Power Serum that I have been using has a blend of turmeric and Vitamin C, just to name a few. I honestly love any product that can give me Vitamin C boost. This serum is made to increase radiance and improve discoloration.

What I like most about this skincare line is that it works regardless of skin tone. Also, that it is easy to use and doesn’t take up much time, which has made it easy to incorporate into my already established daily skincare routine. If you are looking for a product that works on all skin tones, give this one a try. Especially if you have pigmented skin like mine, because it is important to use skincare products that are made for you. Check out other products on this Avya Skincare Line here.

Little Black Romper

My love for Rompers is as strong as my love for Peplum this summer! I may very well own over 10 rompers. But this little black romper is my favorite.

SHOP LOOK HERE

Minimal but it has all I need; neutral color, accent buttons, pockets – I love dresses and rompers with pockets.

The best part, is that it goes with EVERYTHING! I picked this one up at Forever 21 and have found some similar ones that you can check out and buy below, so keep scrolling.

Ps. On repeat are my new favorite earrings from Beck’d, the handmade earrings shop that I found while visiting Columbus, GA. Make sure to check it out.

Quick and Easy Empanadas

Quick and Easy Empanadas

Being a Latina, I obviously grew up on arroz con pollo, flan, and empanadas; just to name a few. While my mother taught me to make flour empanadas from scratch, sometimes you want to take the quick route.

Using Goya’s discos para empanadas, allowed me to make something tasty while savoring flavors that took me all the way back home to Panama.
