Ways to Maintain Skin Like a Baby
I feel like the start of every post about any kind of body health comes back to drinking water. Seriously. Water is so key to our bodies and a ton of people just don’t drink enough. I certainly don’t get the recommended 10 8-oz cups of water a day! Not drinking enough water causes your skin to look dull and makes wrinkles, pimples, and pores so much more prominent.
Fitting exercise in is always a challenge but it’s absolutely key to healthy skin! Aerobic exercise gets your blood pumping through your body and all the oxygen circulating around keeps your skin looking healthy and vibrant. Non aerobic exercise reduces stress and helps you sleep better which also helps your skin. Speaking of sleep…
No picture of this because I don’t get enough of it. (Also because I can’t take a picture of myself sleeping and it seems sketch to have Nate take a picture of me sleeping) This woman has been getting about four hours of sleep a night recently and it’s the worst. I can’t even blame it on Caleb since *when he’s well* he only wakes up once or sometimes twice a night for 15-20 minutes at a time. Not getting sleep causes bags under the eyes and makes your skin look tired and older. Yes, this is more than likely the majority of my skin’s problems right now.
I used to use nothing but water and a washcloth on my face. Cassie offered to let me try some of her Arbonne products recently and they’re amazing! The whole RE9 line is designed to keep skin looking fresh and young. It made me feel like such an adult to use Facial Cleanser, Toner, Renewal Serum, Eye Crème, Night Repair Crème, AND Day Crème (with Sunscreen). Is that weird? It’s so important to use healthy products on your face to remove dirt and bacteria, keep it moisturized, and, OF COURSE, protect it with sunscreen. I love Arbonne products because they use pure, safe, beneficial products and cruelty–free formula. As the company says, from botanically based ingredients to forward-looking green improvements, being earth friendly has everything to do with who they are and how they choose to grow. It’s important to love your skin enough to find products that keep it looking healthy.
