Well another holiday season has come and gone. I hope yours was as great as mine. I always host Christmas Eve for my family and this year there were 34 for dinner! Ages ranged from 1 1/2 months to 87 years...it was a truly delightful evening! Then Christmas Day with my immediate family, my son's birthday on the 27th and mine on the 29th. New Year's Eve was very quiet with half my family in Las Vegas and others Quad riding in Glamis, CA. So now the clean-up begins...both the house and me!
I don't know about you, but no matter how hard I try, I'll be picking tree needles out of my carpet for the next month! On top of that, my face is showing the definite signs of a wonderful couple of holiday weeks! So first on my list of to-do's for me is a great eye cream that I swear I will apply every morning and every night no matter what...(she says with serious determination). My choice: gloTherapeutics Cyto-Luxe Eye Cream because you can actually see some results quickly. All restorative eye creams take some time to see the full effects, but I like that! Keeps me motivated!
Next is the rest of my skin. Inside, outside, head in and out of the oven, an excess of yummy treats and drinks all take their toll. First, back to water as my drink of choice. Nothing keeps skin healthier than 8 glasses of water a day! Of course, it's also lots and lots of body lotion. But, first, I'm going to take a little time and exfoliate all over. One of our new brands...CleanLogic...has some great bath and shower scrubbers...and I bought the Exfoliating Body Scrubber! Pair that with my Hempz Vanilla Plum Herbal Sugar Body Scrub and I should have soft, moisturized skin that glows!
Finally, it's time to stock up on liters of shampoo & conditioner. I always buy at this time because Beauty Care Choices has their annual sale and the prices now are even better than using my employee discount! I love liters...I go through about three a year...it's much easier to pump just the right amount. Smaller bottles tend to tip or slip through my wet hands in the shower or I pour too much and waste it.
Of course, I also have the usual New Year's resolutions...lose weight, exercise more, eat healthier. How long will I stick to these...not sure, but I know I'll have soft skin and bright eyes!
