wassup, good people!
i thought today would be a great day for some beauty advise/tips/secrets! i don't know what it is about 30, but all of a sudden things are just clicking. for instance, my low maintenance beauty regimen is finally working out in my favor and i'm pretty geeked. how geeked? i'm so geeked i'm writing a blog about the 3 beauty secrets i learned at age 30. with sharing this info, i hope to help someone else save their coins and time. sharing is caring!
1 || use products before buying new ones
don't be a product junkie. it's not a good look. stick to the things you really need - which is hard when we live in a world with youtube (monthly) favorites. but if you live in a smaller house like i do, then seeing a million product bottles will drive you crazy. do yourself a favor and stay sane.
2 || use essential oils
why? they have multiple uses and they are the ingredients in most beauty products. plus, it's cheaper to buy them a la carte. for example, i keep a jar of organic coconut oil (approx $6) at hand because i use it as moisturizer for my face and hair, cuticle softener, and i'll even put it in my frying pan when i'm out of olive oil (but that's neither here nor there).
3 || be consistent
i can't advise this enough. i was notorious for trying out products for a couple of weeks and getting anxious when i didn't see quick results. then i'd stop using the current products and try new ones without giving my skin and body a chance to adapt. i had the wrong attitude and i am proud to say that i am now a little more gracious with my body, skin and time. i wait for results and give products an honest chance before i keep 'em or trash 'em. (but i'm too cheap to throw things away so i'll either use an entire product resentfully, or i'll give it away.)
what are your beauty secrets? let's have a discussion in the comments section.
until the next blog post,
