NWA Ladies (& gents if you found yourself here)!!! I've teamed up with Tonya Nash at Simplee Skin in Bentonville to re-set my skin and get it as healthy as we possibly can, and especially wedding ready in August! We are using all DMK skincare to help re-build my skin barrier. Something I have been learning for the last few months is that if you use too harsh of chemicals or products on your skin, it can strip down your protective barrier of your skin. This can cause your skin to dry out and over-produce oil, therefore lead to more breakouts. We are tackling this with a few very specific treatments at her salon and at home products.
(Next time I will be adding on either the Muscle banding or the Alkaline Peel so stay tuned!!)
- Enzyme Therapy - I loveeee how this makes my skin feel after and for the next couple days.
It offers natures biological catalyst to: Hydrolyze dead cells, Increase Oxygenation into the skin, increase cellular activity, encourage new collagen and elastin, AND detoxifies the skin. So many benefits!
- Post therapy cleanse & hydration
What this treatment is good for: Aging, acne, pigmentation, and scarring
My Morning & Night Routine:
After a few weeks so far, my skin feels and is starting to look so much healthier and more moisturized!! If you are looking for ways to treat your skin with science, and cleaner products reach out to Tonya as linked above and check out the DMK line!
XX Happy Skincare to you all!
I love how smooth it goes on and doesn't leave my skin feeling sticky or tight. Acaderma focuses on clean and effective beauty that is fragrance, cruelty, and mineral oil free. I love that this one is full of anti-oxidants, and can protect you from photo damage as we stare at our screens all day!
Did you know that your indoor air quality is sometimes worse than outside in your city?? With pets and dust, the air can really effect your skin's health. After washing your face in the morning, apply this serum before moisturizing and you are good to go!

My next trick to learn and perfect with my hair is seriously how to blow dry with the brush. I will probably always struggle with this because it's too much for my hands to handle. Maybe with this smaller one, it will be easier! I so envy the people that can blow dry their hair with a brush like a blow out and then not have to straighten or do anything else after. Mine always gets weird haha. More to come, we shall see if I can ever perfect the hair stylist trick :)
Thank you DIY Stylist for sponsoring this post! May my hair never be weird again while travling!
This post is brought to you by Alba Botanica and the InfluenceHer Collective. Thank you for supporting the brands that make Haley's Dailies possible!
I get it, what girl doesn't feel more confident when their skin is nicely bronzed from the summer sun?? THIS GIRL DOES! And that is why I need a good sun protectant, and don't forget I'd prefer for it to feel and smell good. Who's with me!? Why is that so hard to find without being caked with chemicals that are actually worse for you than the sun itself.
Well ladies listen up... I found the PERFECT, dream, yummy, sunscreen. Alba Botanica is where it's at!! I've used it on those 95 degree weather with a UV of 10 kind of days and didn't get a burn, didn't feel a burn while outside, and came in feeling less sticky than ever before from a sunscreen. It smells so good that you won't feel weird about using it before Memorial Day or past Labor Day on a regular basis ;)
Our skin is so fragile, and as our biggest organ, we need to be taking as good of care of it as we possibly can. Alba Botanica is one of my absolute favorite green brands. I've been using them for years and they are more than just a green beauty brand. They support young girls by helping to provide education and strive to protect your skin and the earth.
Alba's Hawaiian Sunscreen Green Tea Lotion is SPF 45 and rubs on just like your daily body lotion. It is reef friendly, biodegradable, and free of any harmful fragrances or sulfates. It not only protects your skin, but nourishes it too and yet manages to be non-greasy. LOVE THAT!!
If you are more of a spray girl, their Hawaiian Sunscreen Clear Spray SPF 50 is just as amazing! It's earth-friendly, tropically-scented and also biodegradable. Gluten-Free and helps protect against sunburn, skin cancer, and premature signs of aging. Spray it on at any angle and you are good to go sister!
Summer may be about to wind down, but the sun never stops and neither should year-round sun protection! Keeping' it tan and keeping' it healthy, Alba Botanica's got my back (literally lol).
I've never gotten more compliments on a perfume than my new Oscar De La Renta Bella Blanca perfume! It has sweet notes of flowers as well as citrus and it's the perfect combination for moving into spring. I love when I come home in the evening and Maui smells like it because I usually spray it and he's near or I pick him up and it gets on him; my favorite haha!
We all wear perfume or scented lotion for obvious reasons, but have you ever thought of the benefits of it and how to truly take care of it?! Let's talk about why it's beneficial and when you should switch it up.
1.) Boosts your mood: Just like wearing a pretty dress you love, smelling pretty can boost your confidence and your mood. When you enhance your mood, you can help relieve stress and anxiety!
2.) Reflects your mood/personality: Feeling happy and playful or romantic and sweet? Bring out how you are feeling with your perfume and everyone around you will sense that energy (literally).
3.) TIP: Store your perfume in the fridge!!! According to perfume experts, storing your perfume on the bottom shelf of the fridge makes them last longer. The "top notes" (the smells you immediately recognize and are most significant) can go bad within just a few short months or lose scent.
4.) Special Occasions: Especially your wedding day! Wearing a new and special perfume on your wedding day and then using it for special date nights or events will always make you remember that day in an extra way. It will essentially create a "smell memory" in your brain that can last a lifetime! And who doesn't want that for their wedding day!? When picking one out, stick to something with one of your favorite notes, but something more romantic or exciting.
One of my favorite ways to keep my perfume fresh during the day is by using the bottle in the morning and then having a rollerball in my purse handy! Smell pretty my friends!
One thing I didn't realize I was missing in my beauty routine: custom shampoo and conditioner! Formulate creates a custom shampoo based on all of your hair needs and preferences... even scent! I went with the strong level coconut and it leaves my hair smelling soooo good all day. My other concerns were strength, oil, and length (gotta grow out those bangs). Right after I used the shampoo, even in the shower, I could tell my hair felt so much softer and once it dried it felt SO much thicker! It's currently not open to the public, but if you DM me on Instagram, or email me, I can send you a personal invite code for you to place an order. Trust me, my hair is thanking me and yours will too!
Also, they are doing a giveaway for my readers! Go to my link here and then Enter My Giveaway to join. They will have a questioner for you to fill out so that you can get the best hair care for your needs and lifestyle.
