Alright Mommies… So, I am not sure about you all, but we are a few weeks into school and I’m feeling a tad overwhelmed. The new schedule, homework, the food prep, and just getting used to being on the go 24/7 is making me feel crazy.
So, I decided to take some time for myself… minimal time that is and practice a little self-care. I’ve always been into skin care so I decided to try a new exfoliator and a seaweed mask. As I was doing that; I noticed how yellow my teeth were so I couldn’t wait to try this amazing teeth whitener. And to top it off it’s been 110° here in Phoenix so I’ve decided to give a new deodorant a try.
I have never done a mask full of seaweed, fruits, veggies, and herbs and this was a nice treat. It was a nice detox for my skin that I could feel. It took about 20 minutes to dry so lay down and relax for a bit.
Clear up your skin before the bell rings with 7th Heaven’s Black Seaweed Peel-Off Mask (less than $2): This mask features chopped black Laver Seaweed (from the Welsh seaside) and crushed Sea Buckthorn berries, which are pressed together to make our black peel off mask. It’s a seaside detox to cleanse deeply and peel off dirt and grease weekly. It’s also vegan, cruelty-free, paraben-free and natural!
This cleanser is the bee’s knees y’all. Not only did it clean my face well by exfoliating; it smoothed and brightened my skin. The superfood nutrients provided me with a glow that I definitely needed.
Zap zits before they come to surface with this powerful VITAMINscrub by CLEARstem Skincare ($46)- This antioxidant infused cleanser uses eco-friendly bamboo and smoothing particles to remove oil, face makeup, and any other impurities. Works as an exfoliating scrub that addresses multiple skin concerns and is compatible with all skin types, including sensitive. It is non-irritating, soothing, and rich in minerals. Skin will appear smooth, brighter, and be primed to better.
Let’s be real here…. I drink lots and lots of coffee! All. Day. long. These results were after only two times and I’m definitely pleased! I’m gonna keep going with treatments but couldn’t wait to let y’all in on this! Same lighting and same time of day! Even made my gums more fresh and pinker. Only 3 steps… brush, prep, and boost! Easy enough that I did it amongst kids and a million other things.
Get your teeth whiter – up to 6 shades whiter – with Luster Pro Light ($43.99): Patented Dual-Energy (light + heat) Xenon Whitening Light and Stain Lifting Serum to whiten teeth up to 6 shades in 30 minutes! Clinically proven professional whitening system with no messy trays or strips allows you to whiten on your own schedule. Xenon Light technology whitens teeth 3X faster than LED.
I love this Mineral Enriched deodorant which is aluminum free and paraben free. I like how long it keeps me smelling fresh especially after going all day long after a workout with no shower. Yikes-hey we’ve all been there.
Prevent body odor, safely (for teens) with CRYSTAL Mineral-Enriched Deodorant in Mountain Fresh ($6.15): “Mountain Fresh” has a clean, unisex scent that is light, yet sophisticated. It elevates aromas like jasmine, oakmoss, lemon and cedarwood. The new natural deodorant is (obviously) enriched with minerals, and provides effective odor protection with a light aroma, and no harsh chemicals. It’s powerful, but gentle and glides on smooth. Bonus — it also conditions and moisturizes skin while delivering the long-lasting 24-hour protection you can trust.
So, I know it’s easier said than done, but pick up these products, have a little self-care and take some downtime for yourself. You deserve it mama!!! Give yourself some grace and know you are doing an amazing job!!!
