Oh me oh my, what a week! I’m super excited about my next upcoming trip to South Carolina in March, but I have to say the planning has become quite the ordeal. I’m hunting for a local photographer so we can show off some easy travel tips and simple outfits.
Plus, oh my goodness… SXSW in Austin is happening the week prior and I’m hitting some fun blogger conferences. YAY!
And as always I want to look and feel my best! So thanks to my hubby for getting super frustrated with my constant dry skin complaints, I think I’ve finally found THE BEST, MOST SKIN PLEASURABLE products!
I think it’s important to tell you that I’ve tried hundreds of bath salts, soaps, lotions and sunscreens. I live in Texas, and often at the beach, so my skin takes a lot of abuse from sun, sand, sweat, and hard water.
Here’s the thing… these have not just changed my skin, but they’ve changed how I live in my skin! I went from itchy and restless to soft, silky and yummy.
So, I NEEDED to share these with you!
This is my list of MUST-HAVE products for healthy, dewy, eewy, glowing skin I personally use on a daily basis:
It all starts with a hot bath and the magical Pacha Soap Co. Coconut Papaya Whipped Soap + Scrub with Coconut Oil.
I mean really this is the best, best, BEST scrub on the planet. It’s not too harsh, it’s just perfect.
Add some love to yourself! Start with a little bit of hydrating exfoliant, while in the shower or bath, and gently scrub away the old while you breath in some adoring self-love.
I scrub my entire body with this stuff with a bit of extra attention to my lips and cheeks.
Anyway, why not give skin a little TLC to become dewy, glowing and radiant to get back to tip top shape. It will thank you and I know you’re going to enjoy pampering yourself!
Pacha Soap Co. also has a “give back” program. When you buy locally, you help create livelihoods globally. They enact our own mission through the set-up of soap shops, clean water initiatives and other sustainable ventures in developing nations. Super cool!
2. DE-BLOAT – Salts and Ice
Get that salty steam going! It’s time to de-bloat and reduce inflammation.
So, fill the bath with Evolution Salt Co. Himalayan Pink Bath Salt in Eucalyptus.
Himalayan pink salt baths are just as effective as Epsom salts for bloating and circulation. With the eucalyptus, it will totally clear your sinuses. It rocks!
I also suggest using either an ice mask or ice roller to reduce inflammation in any problem areas.
3. STEAM + HYDRATION
Add just a little more steam, then BOOM latter up with the magical Seaweed Bath Co. Hydrating Body Cream in Eucalyptus & Peppermint.
I know peppermint is thought to be cooling and it’s quite the treat when you’ve been thirty minutes in a 110 degree bath! I just bought another bottle of this stuff because I’m honestly a little addicted.
Now, for the real awesomeness – eucalyptus! This is amazing for the respiratory system especially when allergies are out in full swing. This stuff is awesome for both winter and summer seasons.
It’s a little pricey, but it’s incredibly thick and a little goes a long way.
Eat your fruit and veggies! What goes in and on your body matters.
Oh and heck, this is a big SECRET to dewy skin.
Kale, spinach and green tea are packed full of anti-oxidants. So, while you could put these into your body via a smoothie or whichever you choose, team them up with exterior anti-oxidants as well. Youth to the People’s Hyaluronic Acid Age Prevention Cream detoxifies, fights aging and moisturizes all in one jar of creamy goodness!
5. BUTTER ME UP BABY
I don’t know about you, but anything with goat’s milk in it I could just die for. The Nubian Heritage body lotion is so soft and creamy going on and it keeps your skin hydrated for hours. In addition to chai, it’s also made with rose extract, which adds this indulgent, aromatic smell I keep craving.
Andalou’s body butter is made with shea and cocoa butter, how does it get better than that?! They are truly the answers to rejuvenated, hydrated skin. Whether you’re fighting dry skin, cellulite, stretch marks, or scarring, this body butter is the cure! It’s also infused with super fruit antioxidants and Moroccan Argan oil, so it detoxifies my skin and provides an all around pampering experience.
