What I’m LOVING Spring 2019 Edition

Friends! In an effort to get us all Spring Ready and FABULOUS I reached out to my friend and fellow blogger extraordinaire, Jennifer McCune to have her share some of her most helpful tips for skin care. I’m so excited to share her recommendations and tools of the trade that she swears by. And, be sure to check out her blog, Mompreneur Next Door.

P.s the pictures above are Jennifer’s own from 2007 to 2015 and those results?! Wow!

Ah, spring! The time of year when we get outside more and show off our gorgeous skin! So of course it’s also the best time of year to think of how best to take care of our largest organ and feel confident with how we look.

Tip Number One – Brighten up that dull-looking winter skin by exfoliating a few times a week with a gentle exfoliant to remove that top layer of dead skin cells. Using a skin care routine that includes a gentle moisturizer, Vitamin C, Retinol and a sunscreen will help brighten up your skin and prevent future damage as well. Look for products that are meant to work together as well. If not, it’s like mixing together cinnamon and garlic. They’re both great alone but don’t work so well together.

Tip Number Two – Don’t forget those eyes! As we age, our eyes appear smaller so not only do you want to start using a good eye cream at a young age, but you also want something to enhance your lashes. Falsies can be very damaging and costly long-term, so a good serum is the easiest, healthiest and most cost-effective option.

Tip Number Three – Wear a daily sunscreen to prevent further sun damage. If you want to get a fresh-looking natural glow, try a sunless tanner and don’t forget your vitamin D.

All of these tips along with wearing a hat, drinking lots of water, and sleeping 7+ hours a night will keep you aging gracefully and feeling and looking fantastic! Remember that the best wrinkle is the one you never get!

What I’m LOVING this Wednesday!

Winter skin is tough! This Agave Nectar Ageless Body Oil is my new FAV for right out of the shower head to toe softness and the smell is gorgeous, too y’all. Yay! https://www.amazon.com/FarmHouse-Fresh-Agave-Nectar-Body/dp/B005HWY9CQ/ref=asc_df_B005HWY9CQ/?tag=bingshoppinga-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid={creative}&hvpos={adposition}&hvnetw=o&hvrand={random}&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=e&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl={devicemodel}&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=&hvtargid=pla-4584345016123547&psc=1

I adore candles. If ever you visit my home (come on over!) there are always, always, always candles lit all over. Snarky Lights on Etsy has this completely adorable AND sarcastic candle for those days that you need a good laugh with your candle light glow. “Your crazy is showing….” is my new favorite. https://www.snarkylights.com/listing/189374752/snarky-lights-your-crazy-is-showingyou

Hello, Rachel Hollis? I love you! Her new book came out this week and it’s pretty much available everywhere and I KNOW this is another must-read. *If you haven’t read Girl, Wash Your Face because you’ve been on another planet or something: Go. Now. Get it. I mean it. https://www.amazon.com/Girl-Stop-Apologizing-Shame-Free-Embracing/dp/1400209609

I’m a non-recovering makeup and beauty-a-holic. Not sorry. But I’m super excited to see the classic Caboodles back out in all the colors we remember from our teenage years. Love. They are everywhere, y’all.
