{Face} the Music

When I was pregnant with Everly, I developed the WORST dark spots on my cheeks I have ever seen.

Spots is a term used loosely.

I had brown splotches around my cheek bones like a dog.

My face looked bruised/dirty.

It also dried out and fried and flaked and all the things skin is not supposed to do unless you’re a snake.

I invested in some things I now refuse to go without.

{1} Dermaplane- total game changer for my skin care routine.

I go to one of my favorite local salon and spas once a month, and have my face scraped with a razor. Literally, she scrapes all the dead skin and fuzz and unwanted hairs and gunk off my face. My makeup goes on so much better, and my face feels cleaner.

I know several in Magnolia that offer this service!

{2} Collagen Peltides

My skin, hair, nails, and gut health is much improved thanks to this little add in every morning.

{3} Face & Eye Cream

Let’s be honest. That’s funny and we all had one if we were allowed in a tanning bed. Or the palm trees.

Lilyana brand creams.

Oh my. They’re cute and definitely a gem like we thought those tanning stickers were.

But these are actually adorable and do something for your skin.

Thou shalt never run out of moisturizers

Thou shalt never forget to apply cream to the neck as to avoid looking like a barbie head on a turkey neck.

Thou shalt take care of thy skin

This brand doesn’t break the bank, it’s got cute packaging to look nice on your nightstand {if you’re like me and throw everything there}, it’s effective, AND they offer COUPONS! $5 off right now actually!

{4} Avoidance

That word is negative I know, but let’s be honest.

I quit eating loads of candy, super sugary foods, and only drink diet sodas.

Yes I know diet sodas are not good for you, but one {me} can not teach high school seniors, take care of 2 children, and try to keep a house decent on water alone.


{5} Invest

Mommas. Invest in yourself. It’s ok to care for yourself– even if its something small like a face cream. Take pride in caring for yourself in some manner. You’ll be glad you did!
