One interesting sub-plot during planning our wedding has been receiving compliments from multiple vendors on my skin. It's so flattering that these talented ladies in various fields have taken note and chosen to mention it. I literally had one wedding gown consultant quizzing me on what I eat and which skincare products I recommend, and my florist exclaimed that she was shocked that someone living in NYC would have such good skin.
The truth of the matter is that I work hard to take care of my skin. I'm thoughtful about my overall skincare routine and am very diligent about sunscreen. I'm also willing to invest in products that are incredibly effective, and May Lindstrom's Honey Mud sits atop that short list. This is a holy grail product for me. It's luxurious, it's versatile (it works as both a cleanser or a mask), it smells amazing (I'm always a little tempted to eat it) and it works. A jar of Honey Mud lasts me about nine months when using it weekly as a mask and occasionally as a cleanser (whenever my usual balm cleanser seems too heavy). Honey Mud also has a delightful pudding-like texture that's fun to play with.
My favorite trick is to apply the mask before hopping in the shower, which prevents dryness or irritation from the hot water. This product helps clarify and perk up my skin without stripping any moisture, which is a combination that's hard to find. In short, I love this stuff and it's integral to my skincare routine.
