You know those times in between your professional facial you just need a pick-me-up?! This is exactly what this at home facial is for! It delivers a smooth, more even, glowing skin tone!
It’s broken down in to all of the steps, and should take approximately 30 minutes, and some of that time, you can be doing other things, like while the mask is drying!
Can’t wait for you to try it!
Since 2009, I’ve struggled with ulcerative colitis before truly figuring out what triggered flares, and how to heal with food and lifestyle changes. I have always considered myself a healthy and informed person, but it wasn’t until I was faced with an autoimmune disease at 21 years old, that I knew absolutely nothing about that I realized something had to change. Enter my journey with clean products! I had changed my diet. But, I knew environmental factors are triggers for autoimmunity–so cleaning up everything I could control was a constant goal of mine. I became obsessed with it. Because, you can’t unknow something.
Once I had learned the toxins I had innocently been exposing myself to on a DAILY basis were terrible for my overall health and wellness, things had to change all around, it became my mission. I was so confused, mad, and eager for change. How could companies be allowed to sell products that are harmful to us?!
Y’all know I love a good leadership or personal development book, and oh my goodness, I’ve found a gem. This month I read The 15 Invaluable Laws of Growth by John Maxwell. Whoa, did it deliver the goods. Seriously, I took notes on every chapter, and know I will be referring to it often. It’s a very easy and quick read with VERY practical + achievable advice. Check it out here.
Thought I would switch things up a bit for this category! I receive email updates from the Environmental Working Group. They keep me up to date on recent studies and products as they relate to our health and environment. The Environmental Working Group’s mission is to empower people to live halthier lives in a healthier environment. With breakthrough research and education, they drive consumer choice and civic action. Check out the website here!
Trust me, I know what you’re thinking. Been there, tried the DIY manicure. Well, I’m here to tell you my method lasts 6-7 days, ladies!
Fun fact: I almost always have my nails painted, and honestly don’t feel like myself when they aren’t painted! I never had my nails painted in high school because between all the sports, nasty goalie and softball gloves, it just wasn’t realistic. In college and up until this past year, I used to get regularly scheduled mani’s/pedi’s. They would without fail never ever last as long as it would if I did it at home. Plus, it was such a time trap even when I had an appointment.
Back in October I read about half of High Performance Habits. It got a little heavy, and it was best I come back to it another time. That time is now! I picked up where I left off and timing for me is much better! It is a great book and I am learning new habits to help propel my business and life.
