I am a firm believer that you can’t be a good mom, wife, employee, friend, daughter, etc unless you feel good and take care of yourself.
I think we as women we forget about ourselves until we hit a total burnout wall. We have to be better than this. We work so hard to take care of everyone else that I challenge you this Valentine’s Day to date yourself.
Carve out an hour at least of time just for you. No kids, hubby, friends, phone, or any distractions. But use this time to do things you love. Read. Take a shower in peace. Exfoliate. Shave. Do a long overdue skin care routine. Listen to your favorite trap music.
Whatever it is, do it for YOU!
My form of self-care and self-love is through skin care. When I am exfoliated, shaved. and a mask on my face is when I feel my best. After my very long skin care routine I feel more in touch with myself than before. I don’t cringe when I walk past a mirror and my overall moral is better. This leads to a more patient mom, a loving wife, and honestly more productive in my business. It’s amazing what a Vitamin C mask can do for my life AND skin!
So this Valentine’s Day Eve, you will find me locked in the bathroom with a hot shower running and my Bright Side Kit from Frank Body. This kit includes a Beauty Scrub and a Brightening Vitamin C Mask.
This is the most requested kit from Frank Body and I see why. Hell, I wouldn’t be able to function without it. The A-BEAUTY SCRUB uses native Australian ingredients like Vitamin C rich Kakadu Plum and Finger Lime, a naturally occurring AHA. This natural beauty brightens skin, takes on scars and softens pigmentation. Over time I have noticed my c-section scar appearing lighter and my skin not only smoother but not so blotchy from pigmentation. I use this in the shower 3x a week and ALWAYS before a spray tan or shaving.
After the shower I moisturize and work on my skin care. I use the BRIGHTENING VITAMIN C MASK included in the kit 2x a week and ALWAYS before a date night. This is an active Brightening Vitamin C Mask that multitasks. Natural & cruelty-free, it’s packed with Vitamin C rich Kakadu Plum to reveal your brightest, clearest skin. Since I have acne scars and pigmentation it is PERFECT for me. The mask also dissolves your top layer of dead, dull, damaged skin with Papaya & Pineapple Extract, along with Lactic, Glycolic, and Salicylic Acids. This is a MUST HAVE in my beauty cabinet and I never let myself run out.
So this is my ideal date night. It’s a me-partay and I am loving every second of it. I throw on the mask and get lost in the pages of a good book until it is time to rinse and moisturize. Follow up with moisturizer and you are ready to conquer the day as your best self!
Grab your Bright Side Kit before it is sold out! This is not something you want to miss!!
