3 DIY Exfoliating Facial Masks

Exfoliating is one of the most important steps when it comes to skincare. As we age, the skin doesn't naturally exfoliate as often, so it needs a little help. The immediate benefit to exfoliating is that it removes dead skin and encourages skin cell renewal, for younger looking skin. If you incorporate an exfoliating scrub into your skincare regimen once a week, the long term benefits include a reduction of dark spots, scars, fine lines, and wrinkles. Best of all, with regular at-home exfoliation, you don't need to spend a lot of money on expensive microdermabrasion treatments. With these easy-to-make DIY masks, you'll enjoy glowing, younger-looking skin with the added bonus of a fun and relaxing #selfcaresunday.

I've created three different DIY exfoliating masks to meet different skincare needs and to match different skin types. Each mask is formulated with an essential oil to enhance those skincare benefits. Though you could omit them and just use the first two ingr…

KCL Friday Finds

Happy weekend, guys, and welcome to Friday Finds! Though this isn't the official KCL Mother's Day Gift Guide, the items featured today are all wonderful gift items! From cute mugs to hand-crafted jewelry and organic beauty products, everything is so very #giftworthy! This week's Friday Finds has the added bonus that everything featured today is quite affordable. So grab a cup of coffee, sit back, and relax with some weekend shopping! Pictured: From Meade to You

At From Meade to You, you'll find some extremely gift-worthy mugs and greeting cards, along with a super cute gift wrapping option. The Botanical Flower Mug pictured above is available in several different designs, each with different quotes on them. 

Personally, I love this dandelion mug the best! If you have something specific in mind, you can get a custom design on any coffee mug, travel mug, or camp mug. It's a great place to get a cute, custom gift!

If you’re on the hunt for a fashion gift, or simply need to update your wardrobe this season, Haute Stone Couture has so many great tops, dresses, and rompers; like this beautiful The Betsey Romper available in white or black lace. There is such a good mix of both casual and dressy, and most of the items are about $20 on average!

I absolutely love the two pieces pictured above! The The Weekender Top is a comfy and cute top to throw on around the house or...well, on the weekend. The Ms Chloe Cardigan Blazer is a beautiful transitional piece for Spring. You gotta have layers for this crazy back and forth weather, right?

For the mom who could use some relaxation, essential oils are the perfect gift. Between the aromatherapy benefits and the skincare properties, essential oils have really taken off. So whether someone is already using them and could use a refill, or has yet to try them; these oils are such a great gift!

At Mommie Rose Natural Body Care you can get Essential Oil Rollers, which have been mixed with carrier oil, so you can easily apply it. You can also get pure essential oil blends to make your own bath and body products, or to use for aromatherapy. If you aren’t familiar with the properties of different essential oils, no problem! At Mommie Rose, the oil blends are labeled by what each one is best for, like the Harmony Blend or Focus.

For something truly one of a kind, the pieces at Reign Makers Jewelry are each handmade with sea glass from the beach! Nicole, the owner and designer at Reign Makers makes each piece herself with sea glass found from her local beach near Ventura, California. She crafts the pieces into beautiful jewelry, set in sterling silver and fine silver.

Her current collection includes colorful rings and enchanting pendant necklaces. She does currently have one leather item available, this sea glass leather cuff. A few of my favorites are pictured above - the White Round Sea Glass Necklace and the Light Sea Foam Wrap Ring. Be sure to browse around her shop and see all of the beautiful and unique designs.

This last shop really caught my eye on Intsagram. At With Love by KM, you can spoil your mom (or yourself) with any number of organic beauty gift sets, including a monthly subscription box. They sell a wide variety of all-natural, cruelty free, organic skincare; from a Vegan Foaming Cleanser to a Green Tea Facial Mist and even Organic Beard Balm.

There are so many must-have items at With Love by KM. You guys know I love a relaxing face mask on the weekend, and they've got several charcoal and clay masks to pick from. Today only, purchase any two masks and get a FREE Foaming Face Wash! All products at With Love by KM are made to order and shipped within 3-5 business days, so the cut off for Mother's Day gifts is April 29th. Use code KCL15OFF20 for 15% off orders of $20 or more.
