Winter Skincare with Alba Botanica

This is a sponsored post in partnership with Alba Botanica and Her Campus Media. All words and opinions are my own.

I have mentioned on the blog a few times before that I have had some issues with acne since high school. And it is typically at its worst in the winter months. After a few years of having it under control, I had constant breakouts about this time last year. So this year, I have been keeping that from happening again with the help of these products from Alba Botanica®Acnedote™ Face & Body Scrub and Fast Fix™ For a Pimple

Lately I have been using the the Acnedote™ Face & Body Scrub a few days a week after I wash off my makeup. I feel like it has the same exfoliating effect as a clay mask, but is a much quicker step in my skincare routine. It is oil free, which is something I always look for before I try any new skincare products. It is also free of: parabens, phthalates, plastic microbeads, sulfates, synthetic fragrances, and artificial colors. And it smells amazing! It has also been clinically tested, and 80% of the tested users saw clearer skin.

Another way I am keeping my skin in check during the winter months is the Fast Fix™ For a Pimple. I have been using it as a concealer over my foundation on problem spots. It is small enough to fit any bag to bring with you for touch-ups, and it contains 6% Salicylic Acid, which works while it covers. Like the scrub, it is also oil-free, and it has a light tint to it. As someone that typically wears the lightest foundation shade available, I think it is a tint that may be better suited for paler skin tones. Also like the scrub, it is made of 100% vegetarian ingredients.

Not only do they make great products, Alba Botanica® also has a grant program for female led organizations. The Do Good Do Beautiful campaign is looking to award two female-led organizations with $15,000 to go after their goals to create, expand, or sustain a major project. The organization just has to be involved in fostering self-confidence in young women, doing good for the environment, or protecting animals. As someone that grew up in the ballet world, I think this would be a great opportunity for a female-led dance company. You can nominate a friend, mentor, family member, or even yourself for this grant. Just apply by November 30th, here!
