I swear I think the rain storms here in Texas are more fearsome than any I have ever experienced. It's been storming for hours now and the thunder crashes are so intense I find myself moving to cover my ears. Not to mention that the hail sounds like a gang has teamed up to throw rocks at my house. It's like a war outside.

I use face masks predominately in the luteal phase of my menstrual cycle when I know that my body is trying to discharge any extra estrogen before I start my period. For me, my skin is often oily during my luteal phase, so I use two masks a week until I start my period and I've found that this regimen works well for my skin.

On weekdays I roll out of bed at 6:10 and am showing my face to the beautiful world by 6:30. The last thing I need is a growling stomach and no easy AND nourishing breakfast options in sight.
