It’s sneaking up on me fast. One minute I’m graduating high school and the next my gyno is reminding me I need a mammogram in a few short years. The calendar says I’m nearing thirty but the check out clerk still id’s me because she doesn’t believe I’m that old. So how do I do it?
Honestly, some of it must be the luck of genetics. I have two small boys that run me ragged.
I’m not going to lie, I hear the “you’re too young for a nine-year-old” all the time. But I also hear the, “you look tired” just as much if not more.
So my tricks to looking and feeling young while the boys suck the life out of me?
Let me share!
You knew it was coming. Stay active. I work out a couple times a week. Don’t get me wrong it’s nothing excessive. I’m feeling pretty proud if I make it to the gym elliptical. I usually spend some time at home doing squats and floor exercises while my toddler crawls on me. But seriously it helps. Not only my appearance but my mood. Once I work out I can justify that chocolate and wine once the kids are in bed!
Stay hydrated. Your skin will drink it up. Keep a tumbler full in a high traffic area, and take a chug every time you walk past. You might spend a few days running to the bathroom but your body will adjust and your skin will thank you.
Moisturize. I absolutely love Josie Maran’s Whipped Argan Oil Face Butter. It’s seriously like a dream. It’s not greasy. I use it after I wash my face and my skin soaks it right up and becomes so soft! It’s a little pricey but totally worth it. A jar lasts forever as it doesn’t take much. Shop around and find the best price. Her other products are just as dreamy.
Wash up. I love 100% Pure’s products too!. I use their face wash daily. I still struggle with hormonal acne so I love their charcoal cleanser, but seriously it’s all great and as the name states 100% pure.
Use an eye cream. Did I mention the boys are sucking the life out of me? A great eye cream can help get rid of the dark circles and wrinkles. Again this is a job for a 100% pure product. They have a coffee bean eye cream that is to die for. Not only does it smell great, it does what it says and doesn’t irritate my sensitive eyes.
Some of this requires a few clicks of a button and others require some time and commitment but I promise it’s worth it. You’re only as young as you feel.
Since starting these products and routines two years ago, I went from a woman who never left the house without her face on to using Urban Decay’s One and Done as her only make up, and I feel more confident than ever!
