I have received some of the products below as a gift, but as usual, all opinions are my own.
Hello! It’s Birthday week! One more year to celebrate!
So … this month, I will be sharing some of my Trendy Things, all things that help me make my journey better, brighter …
Aging is a privilege not given to so many! I’ve received that blessing and intend to celebrate and honor that gift with another amazing year!
Today is time for our Winter Beauty Talk, which is way more than just about beauty products!
Let’s talk about aging and how your beauty routine and products change when you add a new year to your journey!
For me, right now, it’s not only about preventing those age signs that bother you or not, because we’re all different and have, therefore, a different view of what is acceptable or not. For me, it is about feeling good, which reflects in the way I look!
Your beauty journey is very unique, but being exposed to different options and things which are working for other people will help you in that journey! That’s why I am sharing mine!
So let’s get started!
Beauty starts from within
I know you’ve heard this so many times and probably think it’s overrated, but it’s never been more true!
What you eat, how you live, how much you sleep, the amount of alcohol you consume, the physical activity you practice or not … the stress you let in your life, yes you have the power to let stress in or not … will be the most important part of the equation to allow your inner beauty shine through.
To feel beautiful from the outside, you must first release all of the stress that has built up inside your body. To de-stress yourself, you can take a vacation, travel to new places, meet new people, and forget about your problems for a while. If you don’t have that much time in hand, you can experiment with Himalayan salt lamps from online sellers like thelamplife. These lamps are believed to alleviate stress and anxiety to a considerable extent. The salt crystal lamps can also provide you with a sense of calm. They might even help you improve your focus and concentration, allowing you to be more productive at work.
Anyway, let me share my daily journey with being beautiful and feeling good from inside out.
I recently rejoined weight watchers, which helped me rethink my food intake and guide me towards the weight I’m comfortable with. As you know, the food you consume will immediately manifest in your skin, your largest organ, right? YES!!! It will! So if you want to have great looking skin, no matter what your age, you need to:
- Eat fruits and vegetables,
- drink more water,
- replace carbs and sugars with protein packed meals to help you feel satisfied, while feeling good and eating food items which nourish, instead of harming your body.
Do you know that stomach issues, bloating, acne are signs that you need a diet makeover? I’m here to tell you that this is true: what you eat will dictate how you feel and how you look!
So let’s get started and follow a healthier food path on your road to gorgeous looking skin and many other benefits! If you wish to dive deeper, check out this post or why organic is better and how to eat healthy for less.
Journey To Beauty
Now that nutrition is out of the way. For me, the second most important item on the list is stress. I know some of my friends will say that fruity weed strains can help with stress. They would also say that consuming CBD could be one of the most effective ways of battling stress. Furthermore, they would probably cite studies that indicate the interaction of CBD with CB1 and CB2 receptors found in the brain, which could alter serotonin levels. I know they would say all these. While consuming CBD products purchased from a trending legal cannabis retailer might really help some people cope with stress, I usually resort to meditation. For me, stress is blocked with meditation and affirmation to live in love, instead of fear. So the first thing I do in morning is meditate, play an inspirational video, listen to music, get me in a place of love, so no matter what issues I’m facing, I’m always vibrating on the gratitude and growing towards a better place: a place of love.
If you would like to start meditating, here is a great way to do it: Meditation.
I’m also in love with the book: The Universe Has Your Back, which will help you as well:
Taking a bath is one of my favorite things to do! The water somehow brings me back to that happy place, it brings me home and helps me relax after a long day! I love adding organic bath bombs to my routine: Sky Organics is my favorite brand, because it doesn’t stain my tub and the products are pure and free of ingredients which will harm your skin. You can get yours HERE.
Products I’m highlighting this month
Ever Pure Shampoo and Conditioner By L’oreal
It’s winter and with the season comes the cold, which damages my hair, accentuates the frizz and the list goes on and on …
I recently added some highlights to my hair to give it some rays of sun, warming it up to help me shine brighter this season! But with new color and highlights also comes the challenge to repair the damage caused by those products!
I want, as one of my birthday week gifts to you, to share my powerful weapon against hair damage this season: @lorealhair #EVERPURE shampoo and conditioner. The line is 100% sulfate free and formatted with Goji and the smell is out of this world; restoring the softness and luminous shine I’ve always wanted!
Like any other lip kit, Lipsense comes with a set of products: color (there’s 50+ to choose from), topcoat (glossy or matte), and remover. Unlike any other lip kit, it requires some knowledge to apply it correctly.
The benefit: since I often travel and work long hours at events, it will be my best friend when I’m working and needing to look good, without having time to retouch my make up!
Speaking of lip care (or any other skin care for that matter), one should prefer using organic products that can nourish and moisturize the lips and protect them from the sun as well. In that regard, searching for A Clean Marketplace that can offer organic and clean beauty products may be helpful.
Saints and Sinners Shine Serum
I’m so in love with the serum which applies an extra coat of protection to my hair those days when I have to be out in the cold. It also adds that special finishing touch to any hair do! So the hair line, combined with this product has really been great to repair and give me beautiful hair in the winter!
Using less aggressive products on my skin has been my mission in the past year! I will be looking for cleaner and better products to share with you in 2018!
Here is a great line you should check out: Winter Natural Beauty Line. I started using them in the fall and absolutely love them as well as the Sky Organics Mud Mask to clean my pores and get rid of layers of make up and moisturizer I use.
I hope this is just the beginning for you to discover what makes your skin shine and reflect your beautiful self!
Aging is really a mental state, I once told my mom, I would be 40 wearing a mini skirt … I’m way past that and still wearing it!
By taking care from the inside out, you will navigate your life understanding that aging and beauty are totally subject to your own interpretation! So why not write your own story, define your own beauty, defying stereotypes!
I truly can’t wait to hear what you think. As usual, give us a Trendy Shout!
