Whether you are Celebrating Christmas, Hanukkah, or something close to your heart, this is the time to relax in between shopping trips and spend time with your friends and family. I am talking to myself right now, too by the way. My birthday always falls on Thanksgiving week so from that day through New Years I usually have about 3 free days and I mean totally – free. This year is no exception, but I did add something new to my routine and it has been such a special addition to my life.
After dinner each evening regardless of the time, I give myself a facial and for the next 10 to 25 minutes recite my thanks for the day. Most days I find it’s time to remove my cleanser and I am still saying sayings ‘thank yous’. It’s relaxing, meaningful, and renews my spirit and my skin at the same time!
Last night was no exception and was actually much needed. We went to dinner with dear sweet longtime friends and celebrated our friendship at The Star. The Star is the 91-acre campus that hosts the world headquarters of the Dallas Cowboys. We have been watching Cowboy football cames together for years and it was fun, exciting, and my skin was ravaged by the cold winds since the festivities all took place outside.
Once we got home I got into my jammies and began began the process of restoration of my skin cells. Winter temps and conditions are the worst for our skin. So after cleansing I made sure to add a little more serum around my eyes and cheecks and extra moisurizer too. There are so many beauty specials out there for the holidays I have stocked up so I know I will have plenty of items for the months ahead.
I am really liking the The Firm line from Dr. Perricone right now. From their Eyes to their face to the neck serums, I love it all and I see quick results. My ‘go to’ is always Dr. Dennis Gross so I just use one product line at night and one in the morning and switch the times around so I don’t mix the products on my face. I love what I am seeing in the mirror!
So take a moment to soon to breathe… and count your blessings instead of sheep….
Make someone smile whenever you can. You never know what a difference it could make in their life. – Pintrest
