I can’t believe how quickly our wedding is approaching! I am ready to whip into amazing shape and take extra good care of my skin and body leading up to the big day. Here are my plans below to ensure I feel my absolute best…
H₂O all day every day
One of my main focuses over the next 5 weeks is to drink my body weight in water every day. The easiest way to give your skin TLC… which sounds easy, but I am actually pretty bad about drinking the proper amount regularly. So this is one of my top goals.
I’ve never talked about botox on here, but we’re all friends here! I am 31 and I have gone 3 times since I turned 28. Honestly, I don’t have a ton of wrinkles that I notice or bother me, but I do have 2 major frown lines between my eyebrows that have gotten worse over the years. A combination of squinting in the sun and bad vision has led one of the lines to be visible even when I have a straight face. It was really starting to bother me and bring me back to high school days when I felt insecure about my skin. Not having that again!
I decided to try and be proactive while I can so it doesn’t continue to get worse. It started to quickly escalate when I hit 30, I swear haha. I have gone 2 times in the past year and notice such a difference. I plan to get it 2-3x a year going forward. One thing I’ve learned is to really feel out/trust your esthetician. I have heard from people who have had bad experiences, but I have never run into that before and I think it’s because I am very firm on not overdoing it. I am all for botox as long as you stress keeping it natural.
I went to Skinworx last week and had such a lovely experience with Eileen. She did a fantastic job… and is the sweetest ever. It’s been a little under a week and the frown line area looks so much better. I am not the best with needles so was very nervous my first time, but it’s quick and painless and totally worth it. Highly recommend visiting her if you’re in the area!
Masks and peels
I swear by face masks and peels for instant gratification. I do them weekly and whenever I am wanting to give my skin a deep cleanse and look glowy. A handful of my favorites that I will continue to use this next month are Dr. Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Extra Strength Daily Peel, M61 Power Glow Peels, Biologique Recherche Masque Vivant (loving this so far! If you’re a local, I heard they sell at Spa Radiance), Drunk Elephant Babyfacial, and Malin + Goetz Detox Face Mask.r
I just got this face cleaning brush and I am obsessed. I had a Clarisonic for many years now, but it was time for an upgrade. Absolutely love it, I will include a link here with details on the tool and its benefits!
Taking face rolling to the next level with this thing! It is incredible. It’s a waterproof roller that deeply kneads the curves of your face to help visibly stimulate, revive, and tighten tired, stressed skin. Highly, highly recommend!
I try to use my dry brush before 90% of the showers/baths I hop into. First of all, it feels so good… I wasn’t sure at first, but once you get used to it… it is a little luxury. A few of the benefits include cellulite appearance reduction, smoother glowing skin, improves blood circulation, shed dead skin, eliminates clogged pores for better nutrients absorbing. My skin feels so much softer after using it… I’m sold on it.
As for moisturizing, I am going above and beyond this next month. SPF, less makeup on my skin during the week, lotions and oils layered before bed, hydrating spritzes (have been obsessed with Elemis Superfood Kefir-Tea Mist lately)… I shared a lot more of my favorite products in this post.
