I am an overcommitted, working mom! On most days I try to eat as clean as possible because I know how you feel and look is directly related to what you are eating…but come Friday, it is pizza and pancakes on the weekend! Taking time for self-care and indulging in products is a way to unplug and relax from what can be some stressful days. I play around with different products, but I also have the old mainstays that I go back to all the time. I also have an arsenal of things that can get me out the door fast or provide a pick me up when I am short on time.
Batiste Dry Shampoo
There are some mornings when there is just no time to wash and dry your hair! Batiste dry shampoo is the best. Not only does it freshen up your hair, but it also gives you a bit of volume, so it looks like you made an effort! Product available at ULTA $7.99+ depending on size
Sea Mist by Herbivore
When the weekend comes, the last thing I want to do is my hair! With this product, I can spritz my hair, leave it wet, and look like I have relaxed (or at least walked) on the beach and let the salt air dry my hair.
Product available at Eleanor’s $20.00
FACE Stockholm Tinted Mineral Moisturizer and Beauty Counter Dew Skin Moisturizing Coverage
I absolutely love and swear by these products! I mix the two products together and presto – I have dewy, natural-looking coverage with an SPF! Also, a little goes a long way for both products.
FACE Stockholm Tinted Mineral Moisturizer available at Skincare Butik $44.00
Beauty Counter Dew Skin Moisturizing Coverage available through Beautycounter (my rep is Sarah Longoria!) $45.00
goop Exfoliating Instant Facial
I am not embarrassed to admit that I tend to listen to what Gwyneth Paltrow says on goop. I mean, have you seen her lately?! This product is a combo mask/scrub. I use it every other night. You put it on and leave it until you can’t stand it (it gets pretty tingly). The, you rub it in and rinse it off and voila, you have super clean and tight skin. It really does give you a glow.
Product available at goop.com $125.00
ANDA Super Nutrient Balm
This product is relatively new to me, but it has easily become a favorite. Each night before bed I slather this balm all over my face and neck. It literally melts into your skin and smells heavenly.
Product available at Skincare Butik $95.00
Astara Blue Flame Purification Masque and Cellcosmet Anti-Stress Mask
Years ago, I read an article that Liv Tyler wrote about her go-to beauty products. These two masks were on her list. I have been using them ever sense. I use them together, Astara first then Cellcosmet. The Astara leaves your skin clean and tight and the Cellcosmet gives you the most luxurious moisturized and calm feeling.
Astara avaialbe at dermstore.com $42.50
Cellcosmet avaialbe at amazon.com $160.00
Flashmasque Hydrate Sheet Mask
These sheet masks are a great go to when you are short on time and perfect for travel!
Available at Skincare Butik $30.00/pack (4 to a pack)
Vital Proteins Collagen Peptide
Do you want strong nails and soft and shiny hair? Do you want to work to reduce fine lines?! Then put this in your coffee, juice, or smoothie. It has no taste and dissolves well. I have been taking one serving of Vital Proteins each day for months now and can really see the difference in my hair, nails, and skin.
