treat yo-self this Christmas

In the famous words of Tom and Donna from Parks and Recreation, you guys need to treat yo-self this holiday season by taking care of your skin, face, and hair. The air is crisp, the wind is whipping, the parties are popping, and the skin is drying off in flakes the size of Texas. Before you stay out late and decide not to wash off your full face of party come-and-get-me make up, just remember that your skin ages nine days every time you do that. Let’s all make a lady pact to wash our faces, take off our eye makeup, and even apply a mask every once in a while.

Here are some of my favorite (affordable) pamper products you might want to try out this season.

I personally don’t use a lot of heat on my hair… ever. If you do, I suggest you find a good heat protectant. You should also work a hair mask or extra moisturizing conditioner into your weekly routine. I tend to use Garnier Fructis.

Coconut oil is my favorite thing ever. I use it every night to remove my eye makeup. It is also a great natural hair mask. If you don’t know all the other amazing things you can use coconut oil for, you should look it up. It is a great natural alternative for a lot a products.
I also use vaseline for a great lip moisturizer or for dry skin areas, especially at night.

I use all of these Mary Kay products on a consistent basis. Don’t forget to integrate your mask into your weekly skin routine. Despite how busy the holidays can be, take a few minutes a night for yourself to protect your skin. We eat a lot more sugar and other unhealthy things from Thanksgiving until the new year, which can cause extra blemishes if you aren’t careful.

I don’t know about you, but my hands get pretty dry once the weather gets cold. There are a lot of different options when it comes to moisturizer, specially with stores like Bath and Body Works around. I have always loved Burt’s Bees, especially for chapstick. Their hand cremes are also pretty great. The Mary Kay peach Satin Hands set is great because it exfoliates and moisturizes.

Let’s be real. There will probably be a lot of photos taken for the holidays so if you want to whiten your teeth as well, that wouldn’t be the worst decision. However, be you. Be comfortable. Be happy. Take care of yourself. Enjoy the holidays with your loved ones.

Until next time,
