My friend Sabrina said it best on her Instagram but aren’t the summer nights starting to feel a little bit cooler? With the evenings hitting colder temps, it’s time for the lightweight jackets! A denim jacket is the perfect wardrobe essential for this exact reason. It’s one of those pieces that you can throw on in the warmer months but layer under in the colder months.

Sensitive skin can be a tricky situation to deal with and can also be one of the most mystifying skin types of them all. It always confused me when a doctor or esthetician would ask me, do you have dry, oily or sensitive skin? My skin is sensitive but it’s also normal or dry… and can sometimes be oily.
