Many of us can easily get into a rut from time to time. You look in the mirror and wonder why you look so tired, your skin is dull, your teeth are not so white and all around you want to look more fresh and put together. After having three kids, let's just say that I have fallen into more ruts than I need to admit. Here are a couple of my favorite go to's to refresh your look from time to time.
Skin. Your skin truly is such a huge focus and something that you show the world everyday. My first step to feeling and looking my best is to slough off some of the dead skin to reveal a more polished and clean complexion. I am a huge fan of chemical peels because they can give you the most bang for your buck. Your skin can quickly (after up to a week of peeling!) look glowing, more even and smooth. Visit your local esthetician to talk about the best peel options for your skin type! If you are on a tight budget or visiting a skincare pro is not for you, then here are some at home products that can help your skin brighten up... Dr. Gross Alpha Beta Daily Peel. Glo Skin Beauty makes an amazing scrub, refresh facial polish, to be used at least twice a week at night to leave your skin feeling so soft, clean and brand new!
Teeth. This is a quick fix that I have been using for years now! I have spent thousands of dollars purchasing teeth whitening products at the dentists office and I was never happy with the results or the painful sensitivity I was left with after a treatment. I found this affordable whitening product years ago in 2007 after watching Kandee Johnson on YouTube talk about how wonderful this stuff was. It is Plus White 5 Minute Speed Whitening System. I leave it on for at least 20 minutes for two-four nights in a row every couple of months to keep my teeth looking their best. I drink A LOT of coffee and this gel really works!
Hair. A mask for your hair is always revitalizing and a little more shine is never a bad thing! I love Quai Treatment Masque. This helps to restore moisture and repair damage for more soft and smooth hair. Leave the mask on for at least 15 minutes or put in your hair on a run or during a workout to get the most out of the product!
Health. Remember to listen to your body and rest when you need to, drink plenty of water and take your vitamins! I say this to my husband and kids all of the time, but it really does help. We love magnesium in our household. It helps with muscle recovery after tough workouts, the other vitamins you will take will absorb better and over all you feel more calm and sleep better. Skipping sugar is always a great idea! Too much sugar will make anyone feel not their best.
These are all really simple and easy tips, but they can leave you feeling and looking better!
