Hey Strong Babes!
Thanks for joining me for another #betterskin Challenge update!
Who ever thought that making small changes could be so tough? These past couple of weeks have helped me realize that new habits are hard to make – I feel like I underestimated what an undertaking this would be.
To recap, I’ve worked towards making four small changes so far to my routine:
- Getting my 8 glasses of water a day
- Taking Himalaya’s Stresscare Daily
- Doing a homemade face scrub 2x times per week (coffee, coconut sugar, coconut oil)
- Drinking Dandelion Root Tea every night
The first three on the list are going well. I have picked up steam in terms of meeting my water intake goals, which I found difficulty with during the last update! On the flip side, drinking dandelion root tea every night is something I kinda flopped on. Determined not to quit, I will give it another go this week!
Since I’m still working on perfecting components of my skin routine, I am just going ahead and making one change this week. Now you guys know I am all about healing my skin working from the inside out, and this week is not going to be any different.
This week, I’m going to start adding some extra FATS to my diet! Fats actually have a really important role in supporting really glowy, supple skin. The reason for this is simple – fat is an important building block for every cell in the body, and your skin cells are no exception! If you want to have healthy skin, build healthy skin cells!
To qualify this goal a little better, my plan is to have a handful of high fat nuts or 1/2 an avocado every morning for breakfast. This morning the avocado went right in my smoothie – I love the creamy, rich consistency it adds to a smoothie!
I know that healthy skin is made from the inside out, but that being said it is still important for me to use good quality skincare products. I have tried what feels like thousands of products and brands looking for the perfect lotion, body wash, etc. Finally I am happy with what I’m using!
I love Live Clean. Their products are amazing quality, paraben and pthalate free, eco friendly, and cruelty free. They also smell great, work amazing, and are completely affordable! And just FYI, this is not a sponsored post. I actually just love this product and want to share it with all of you.
When I buy their products I pretty much always go for the coconut milk scented ones – the other scents are lovely but this one makes me feel like I’m on a beach somewhere. I’m so glad I finally found something that meets my needs – and my budget.
Do you guys have any “musts” in your skin routine? I’d love to hear about it!
