My Fall Skincare Routine + Eliminating Dry Skin

This post is sponsored by Clarisonic and Her Campus Media. All opinions are my own. Thank you for supporting the brands that make A Walk in the Park possible!

During the summer, my skin is usually fresh, glowing, and I don't so much have a skincare routine, but more like, I just use one face wash product everyday in the shower and I'll try out a new mask once a month. However, during the fall and winter months, and especially now being in NYC, the air is so dry and harsh against my skin that it dries up my skin around my mouth and chin, which are my trouble areas for blemishes anyways. 

I've been looking for products to help this problem, and I come across the opportunity to try out the Clarisonic Mia 1, which is a sonic cleansing tool that moves back and forth on the skin, to open up the pores and gently flush water and cleanser into them for cleaner and more radiating skin. I've never tried any product like this before, and after using it for about 12 days I can already see the difference! 

My fall skincare routine with this product is just using it once a day like I would my face wash, or sometimes twice a day, once in the morning and once at night, if I feel like my face is extra dry or broken out. To use this product, you just wet your face, take the Mia 1, wet it a little, put a small dimes worth of the Pore + Blemish or Refreshing Gel Cleanser on it, and gently start moving it around your face with a strong focus on your trouble areas. I usually do this for about 3 minutes and I wash my face off and gently pat dry it. 

The Mia 1 is an investment piece that is $129, but the brush heads last 3 months so after the initial investment of this sonic cleansing tool, it hardly costs anything as the months go by, to be perfect exact it costs less than 63 cents a DAY. Isn't that amazing?! Even if you can't afford the $129 payment, Clarisonic offers payment plans so you can still achieve clear skin now even if you don't have the $129 to buy it. It's actually quite affordable considering that the the cleanser and brush heads last such a long time, and this product really cleanses the pores in a way that cannot be done with just your hands and regular face wash. After washing, my skin always feels so soft, almost as if it's already made that much of an impact on my pores! 

If any of you are looking to switch up your facial cleansing routine this season, I definitely recommend the Clarisonic Mia 1! I've even got a 15% off code for you all to use when you pick up your products here, and you can receive this discount using code HERCAMPUS

Autumn is Always Fun When You've Got A Cozy Sweatshirt!

This might sound crazy, but I don't own any sweatshirts. I have one New York sweatshirt that I bought at a tacky gift shop (I promise it's cute though), but I wear that thing all the time. It's so cozy but I don't know why it is that I only have that one sweatshirt... maybe I'm just extremely picky? I don't know, but I've finally added super cute cozy sweatshirt #2 to my wardrobe!

This sweatshirt from Tees and Tank You is simple, but the color scheme and graphic is so cute and so fitting for me! I wore it out and about in Brooklyn this weekend, it was a laid back day which called for a laid back outfit. I wore jeans and my favorite brown booties, and I had to layer a flannel underneath this sweatshirt because I thought that made my super casual outfit stand out a tad bit more. This fall has truly been one of the best I've ever had, I love seeing the leaves change and the temperatures drop... but my mind will change once they've dropped too much, because I'm still a Florida girl, after all.

Wearing: Tees and Tank You sweatshirt, Target denim + flannel, Steve Madden booties.
