I’m back again with the next installment of my mini blogger series, and I’m incredibly happy to be able to feature Morgan from Mod Young. Morgan not only creates some of my favourite content, but she really knows her stuff when it comes to skincare and she’s incredibly kind!
Morgan and I originally bonded during my trip to Orlando, more specifically, over our joint love of Disney and Epcot’s Food and Wine Fesitval. I hold Morgan accountable for a number of new additions to my skincare routine, including Drunk Elephant and Youth to the People. I actually asked Morgan for her skincare recommendations, because I trust her opinion that much, and you should too!
Firstly, tell us a bit about you…
I’m Morgan! I live in Kentucky, in the US, and I’m a beauty blogger! I primarily discuss skincare, but I also dabble heavily in make up and hair care. Skincare is my liveliest little passion, though.
What’s your skin type?
My skin used to be incredibly dry, but nowadays I find that it teeters between normal and dry, and has a tendency to dehydrate. During the winter I tend to have more dry days than normal ones, but during the spring and summer my skin is more normal than anything else.
What are your skin concerns?
I have acne, and managing that is really what drives me to continue my skincare journey. It’s a constant learning process, as acne is such a tricky issue to manage.
What are 3 products you can’t live without?
Farmacy Clean Bee, Drunk Elephant Protini, and Farmacy Green Screen.
What is the last product you purchased?
A SPF from Paula’s Choice. The Redness Relief SPF 30 Mineral Moisturizer!
What is your last product empty?
Paulas Choice 10% Azelaic Acid Booster (a GEM).
When did you start using skincare and why?
I’ve used skincare in a casual way for a very long time, but I really began learning about ingredients and how they affect the skin about 4 years ago. The reason I decided to commit to that learning process is because my acne was unmanageable, and I was determined to find a way to help control my breakouts.
If you could only ever use products from one brand, what brand would it be and why?
Ugh, this is a tough one. I can narrow it down to THREE. Farmacy, Drunk Elephant, and Paula’s Choice.
If you could give one piece of skincare advice, what would it be?
Wear SPF, EVERY DAY, no matter what! Wear it even if it’s cloudy, and even if you don’t think you’ll go outside. People are always looking for the magical, miraculous anti-aging product, and there it is. UVA/UVB exposure will prematurely age you quicker than anything else, and protecting against that is your greatest defense against premature hyperpigmentation, fine lines, texture, and wrinkles! Your skin will thank you.
