Happy almost New Year, everyone! When I think about this past year, I think about all of the goals I made that I accomplished and I am so proud. It really is not easy to make a goal and stick to it the entire year, especially when it was such a tough year again. It’s definitely easy to fall out of our goals, so I want to congratulate everyone who stuck to their New Year’s resolutions this year and to those of you who tried. Because trying is half of the work and you should be so proud of yourself for welcoming change!
Every year I hear people say new year, new me and honestly, I’m not a huge fan of that saying. We don’t have to change our entire selves to welcome change. We can make adjustments to our lives that will help better us and that is enough to move in the right direction. Something that I’m working on this year is getting control of my skin. Skincare is in, you guys! It’s cool to take care of yourself and your skin is the largest organ in the body. Yeah, how crazy is that?!
I have a teenager and 2 more kids who are getting close to the teen years and I want to set a good example for all of them and show them that taking care of your skin is very important. More than that, though, I want to take care of my skin! A lot of beauty routines these days that are popular are ones that are natural- no makeup, makeup looks, if you will. Those are very difficult to achieve if your skin is in a rough place. Now, a lot of this has to do with hormones, stress, diet and other outside factors so a skincare routine will not solve everything, but it’s a great starting place.
I want to mention that I am big on probiotics these days, the gut controls everything! If there’s an imbalance there, you’ll want to fix it! Definitely talk to your doctor about suggestions on where to start, but two that I think are great options are Seed and Teami Blends. These are very different products, but definitely worth mentioning to your dermatologist or doctor on great starting places!
I am always on the hunt for the greatest skincare products out there. The beauty industry is constantly changing and for the better! But it makes it harder to find products when new ones are constantly coming out. I have to say, I’m really happy about this list I have for all of you! These are all products that I have used and can vouch for, as always. Some are pricier and some are affordable, no matter what type of skin you have, you will be able to find at least one great takeaway from this grouping.
Also, I can’t stress this enough, sunscreen and water are daily necessities, not options! Take care of your body this year and forever!
Happy shopping and happy, healthy New Year to all!
