About Jennifer Todryk
Hey there! I’m Jenn.

Things get a little loud and chaotic over here from time to time. I blame the three child beasts ... and Mike is loud too. But, I hope to bring you nothing but happiness, inspiration, good home decor and only the comfiest clothing recommendations because, who really enjoys pants .... ? And most importantly a good laugh. I hope you laugh a lot… even if it’s at my expense.

My Skincare Regimen- Moisturizers, Oils, and Tanning!

by Jennifer

Happy Monday!

Hope y’all are having a wonderful week! This weekend I stepped away from IG to celebrate little Vonster turning SEVEN! 😭 My first baby is getting so old!

How are YOU? Mentally. Physically. All of it.😂 I can’t decide how I am feeling about all of this quarantine and social distancing… I’m about to spew thoughts so if you’re only interested in skin care, I get it and just keep scrolling down to the links. 🤗

Anyone else going up and down during this weird time? One week I feel like Mike and I are killing the work-from-home-while-homeschooling-and-keeping-everyone-alive game and then other weeks I am behind on turning in homework assignments and just OVER. IT. ALL. While I really do love having the kids around more (we are half-time homeschoolers so I was already used to having them around more than what is “typical”) it’s just a completely different vibe when they are around while we’re attempting to work. I feel bad! I feel like I am not completing tasks that people are asking from me as well as being a only semi-good mom. Does anyone else feel this way?

I know this is temporary! We have made some awesome memories during this time and I honestly do feel like this has been an awesome, much-needed experience for us. ❤️

…and I will never take good child care for granted ever again.

Anyways, back to skin care… why you opened this post. 😂

I’ve been a simple gal when it comes to face products and “girly things”. So my regimen is pretty simple and straight forward. I started this skin care routine last summer and I have been so good at sticking with it!

STEP 1: Tatcha Deep Cleanse | STEP 2: Tatcha Silk Cream + Isle of Paradise | STEP 3: Ahava Face Serum | STEP 4: Tatcha Neck Cream | STEP 5: Tatcha Kissu Lip Mask |

On days I want to be fully tan, I am using St. Tropez self tanner or Minetan. I use it 1 to 2 times a week! Here is a highly rated tanning mitt you can use that also comes with an exfoliating glove and face mitt. These two tanners have ZERO trace of orange, which is huge for me because everything is orange on redheads. We are naturally orange humans.

Note: If you have blonde eyebrows, the tanning drops will tint them a little orange-redish! So, steer clean from the brows unless you color them dark like I do, then it doesn’t really matter.

Check out my past blog post about my go to makeup and hair products! If you are needing links to my makeup and hair products!

Have a great week! Hang in there Mamas! I appreciate you BIG time! ❤️
