Ditch The Toxins & Reinvent Your Skin Care Routine!
Step One...Self Care!
The most important step to glowing beautiful skin is proper self care. Getting adequate rest and hydration is essential to healthy glowing skin. Both sound so simple but It's easy to get caught up in life and put our own needs on the back burner. I know life is never simple or easy but taking a few steps everyday to make yourself a priority can make a HUGE difference in your health and wellness. Glowing skin is just an amazing bonus!
This can be a tough subject. Life often demands so much of us that it can be hard to find time to get real rest. With often so may other pressing things happening in life it can be easy to forget how important proper sleep and rest is. Proper sleep affects our ability to adapt and make decisions. It affects our mood and energy as well as slowing down the metabolism. in summery in many ways not getting proper sleep makes us cranky & accelerates the aging process (No one wants that, right?!) So try to make your sleep schedule a priority as much as possible. My quick tip to getting to sleep sooner and staying asleep longer is to stick to a flexible nighttime routine that works for YOU.
