Three tips to healthy skin

One of my 2017 goals was to take better care of my skin. Growing up in a house full of boys, I never paid much attention to the products that I used on my face. I’m now 30 years old, and I’m starting to realize that I no longer have youth on my side and that I have to be more intentional when it comes to taking care of my skin.  Honestly, as a mom of three, it’s easy to not prioritize myself. When I’m able to sneak in a quick shower I sometimes (most of the time) just use soap to wash my face.  Gasp! I know I shouldn’t, but time is scarce. You know what else is scarce? Sleep! I would love to say that getting enough sleep is one of my top 3 steps to healthy skin, but at this point in my life, sleep is just not in the cards for me.

The good news is that we’re into May, and I’m finally feeling on top of my skincare routine which involves daily wash and moisturizing. On top of that, there are a few things that I do to help my skin remain as healthy as possible, and I wanted to share them with you!

Three tips to healthy skin

I. Water, water everywhere! I may not be able to get enough sleep at night, but if there’s one thing I do every day, it’s hydrate. My goal amount is 64 ounces of water every day, and most days I go over. Staying hydrated does wonders for my skin and helps me flush out my system. I also swap out any sugary drink I may want to have with my meals for water. I see a big difference in the “glow” and overall feel of my skin when I hydrate.

II. Sweat! Guys, when I lived in humid Florida, I’d sweat all the time. It’s gross I know, but it would detoxify my pores and my body. Moving to Nebraska, I have noticed that it is much more difficult for me to break a sweat. One of the things I have to do for my skin is make sure that I am detoxifying and that I am sweating. I do this every day by working out. Some days look different than others. If I can, I sneak in a run, and if time does not permit, I will do jumping jacks or hold a plank until my body physically sweats. It’s not pretty, but sweating keeps my skin healthy!

III. Acne treatment– Something that I have struggled with for years is acne. And taking care of my skin means staying on top of my acne problem. My go-to solution these days is NEW Differin® Gel. NEW Differin® Gel is a little different than most spot treatments I have used in the past. I apply a thin layer every day, once a day after cleaning my face, and then I continue to use it even after my acne has cleared up. Differin® Gel is NEW to the OTC acne aisle, and although it has the power of an Rx, you don’t need a prescription for it and you can find it at Target! It is the first and only prescription strength retinoid now available over the counter for clearing and preventing acne. It’s the newest advancement and ingredient in the OTC acne category in over 30 years!

Please use caution when using Differin® Gel with more than one acne treatment or glycolic acid product because this could lead to irritation. Also, if you’re thinking about using it (and you should), this is for mild to moderate acne. Differin® Gel clears breakouts where they start (deep in the pores), prevents breakouts before they begin, and as a result, restores skin’s texture and tone.

It’s hard to accept the fact that I’m 30 and that my skin does not bounce back as fast as it used to.  I’m having to use new products and just accept the fact that wrinkles are on the horizon and that I can either feel bad about it or age as gracefully as I can.  So here’s to aging, to finding the right skin products and to healthy skin!

happy weekend and some links

family lifestyle blog

Somewhere between studying for my next test, running around a soon-to-be 1 year old and DIY’ing a few home projects, I decided it was time for a much needed inspiration break. Who doesn’t get inspired by this simple yet elegant floral arrangement featured on Style me pretty ?? These flowers would look so pretty just about anywhere.  So… here’s to rebelling against my never ending to-do list…

  • How pretty is this Anthropology video?? oh the colors!!
  • I’m working on a few DIY projects.. thinking about this one  project for over our bed, which would go perfect with our siluette DIY from last week
  • I’ve never been a fan of Oreos, I think it started when I had braces and got everything I ate stuck on them… but this grown up version looks out of this world! Maybe dunked in milk??
  • I love designing out nightstand to include functionality and style. Ale thinks they’re too feminine, but I love the look of Emily Henderson’s designs.
  • Ran across this blog the other day called The well traveled womanLOVE!!!
  • I wonder if I’d workout or fall asleep in one of these cocoons. Either way they look absolutely fun!
  • This link is good to keep handy during those times all you have in your fridge are eggs!

Have a wonderful and inspiring weekend friends!!!

Love,

Tere
