Before we can dress our body we need to think about self care. As a busy mom and entrepreneur I do not have much time for self care. However, I have come up with routines that allow me to use a fraction of time on my daily hygiene so I can feel fresh and good about myself. First I'll go over my body care routine with you. I have tagged all my products in my AMAZON STOREFRONT which you can find here.
I encourage you to decide what works best for where you are today. Daily there are things I like to do to feel good! So I’ll start by saying I love a nightly shower because I get pretty dirty as a mom durning the day! Every night when I shower I have a few must do things (and everything is linked in my storefront). First, I use this amazing makeup melt by Elemis with an abrasive face towel. It feels lux to me and is one of my favorite products. It gets all my makeup off without scrubbing too hard. I also love Dove body wash as simple as it is for all over cleansing. Once a week I like to wash my hair I use the brand Kerastase, I use 3 products which you can see in my storefront. On nights I don’t wash my hair I use a shower cap. I have to shave my legs every other day, hair stubble annoys me. Once a week I also use this amazing exfoliater pure elix, it smells amazing and is one of the best scrubs I’ve tried.
My post shower must haves. Lotion, I use a lot of lotion and for that reason I just use coco radiant, it’s basic, smells amazing and if I use an entire bottle in one sitting it isn’t going to break the bank. For my face lotion I use the brand, Tubby Todd and use their all over ointment as my face lotion. Side story on how I came to use this, it is a baby lotion but I love it so much! I ended up using it because Emmaline had a baby face rash at 2 months which was probably just baby acne. So many of my followers suggested using it and I thought it was too easy and it wouldn’t work. I thought I would try it and I was surprised it actually worked! So then I noticed I would get a similar rash occasionally around my nose and I thought why not try the lotion. It cleared my skin right up, this is something a dermatologist couldn’t even pin point. Ever since I tried it I never went back. It does something amazing and calming to my skin. Everything else I use gives my skin irritation over time or just wasn’t good enough. Another thing I use is U Beauty body skin resurfacing, I only use it once a week because it’s Bougie but worth it. My skin is super dry esp my hands and knees so I highly concentrate it there while also using on my entire body but not my face.
Lately I’ve been doing this perfume even before bed because i love it so much!!
My hygiene is simple and attainable and easy and quick. A mix of some higher priced items with some really low price items. Don’t feel like you need to copy the products but find what works for you! Once you find your products life can feel more streamline and that’s what this series is all about!
