Hi everybody! Today we are talking about SKIN CARE! Not make-up, because I know very little about that….but I am just a little obsessive about caring for my skin. I have been in about a year long journey or trying to find the perfect products for my face, and I think I’ve finally accepted that the perfect products might just not exist. BUT! I think the perfect routine does exist, and at least for this season, I think I’ve found the perfect one for me (plus some pretty close to perfect products to boot). This routine is only for night time, but maybe we can cover daytime skin care soon. Let’s jump in!
Step 1: Cleanse
Step 2: Tone
Step 3: Serums
5. Eye Cream
I will be a focused warrior against under eye puffiness and fine lines probably forever. Eye cream is CRITICAL. This is the one step that I will never ever miss no matter what. The skin under your eyes is very delicate, so apply this with soft taps with your ring finger and head off to bed knowing you’re about to wake up with fresh and nurtured skin.
I hope this guide helps. For me, it’s all about early intervention, with high quality and affordable products to make your very own skin as gorgeous as it can be.
Welcome back to our FINAL week dedicated to fresh starts in 2019. Today we are covering next steps. Often, the new year is a fresh opportunity to reevaluate the things we have not been doing and set some intentions. The stereotypes here look like diet plans and gym memberships and whatnot, but I would encourage you to let your fresh starts reflect the ways your very own life needs to experience growth. Sometimes the thing that can get the next big hurdle to shift is just doing the next right thing.
For example, if you want to start grad school this year but it just seems too daunting, do the next right thing of narrowing your selection pool down to five universities based on your budget or specific programming needs. If you want to completely declutter your house, zero in on the spot that is really getting under your skin and make a goal to completely organize that space by the end of February. If you want to make your relationship with your mom right, do the next right thing of committing to sending a Monday morning text with some encouragement and a prayer for her week. Just doing the next right thing can be the change maker. We are never too busy, old, young, or frustration prone for good change to happen.
It’s week three of our four-part fresh starts series and we are talking today about all the ways we can take a fresh start in the content we consume. The thing is, we can make significant changes and improve our lives in more ways than just starting a five-day-a-week exercise routine or eating Keto for the next two months.
In my mind, one of the quickest ways to improve your life is to feed your mind well. Everybody takes in content, and honestly, it might be the thing you do most in a day. Whether it’s instagram stories or New York Times articles or a cat video, there are a million ways that we will consume content. So what if the small and critical shift you make this year, is to try and invest time into mostly high quality and enriching content. Here are three ways you might approach that:
Welcome to the second week of fresh starts! Hopefully last week challenged you to dig into your faith based routines and explore a little deeper this new year. This week we’re talking about refreshing the choices we make with our diets. As I’m writing, I’m ten days away from wrapping up a Whole30. After 20 days of no added sugar and no grains or dairy, I’m READY to return to the world of Oreos and pasta. But! I’m hoping some of the switches I learned to make over the last several weeks will stick long term.
I’m convinced that long term change happens when the little shifts become lasting. Here are three little diet shifts that I encourage you to incorporate into your diet this week. If these don’t work for you, try something else, but when we don’t give up, the good stuff starts to happen. Even if you’ve felt defeated in this area a million times, it doesn’t mean that this can’t be the week that you finally find the changes that really work for you.
