Taking breaks

 

I am so sorry that I have been gone for so long (feels like forever)! I have been in the process of moving, finals at my college, volunteering and so much more! It’s been stressful but now I am ready to get back into blogging; I have missed it so much! I thought this would be the perfect post to make as I have taken a break here recently.

1 Don’t put too much pressure on yourself

I know that this step is easier said than done, but it is so important to not put unrealistic expectations upon yourself. Learn to pace your work, take breaks and don’t be cruel to yourself.

2 Understand that taking breaks is good for you

I know letting yourself take a break can be very hard, but it could be exactly what you need to make yourself feel renewed.

3 Breaks help us reevaluate ourselves

Everyone needs to reevaluate sometimes. This helps us see where we are, where we want to be and what we need to do to get there.

Productivity will increase

If we overwork ourselves, our productivity will only keep decreasing the more tired we become. However, if we take a break every now and then, we will come back replenished and more productive.

10 Skin Habits You Should Adopt

1. Be careful with how you wash your face

Pulling and tugging on your facial skin causes wrinkles. When washing your face, use hot water to wet the skin and open up pores, gently wash your face with cleanser and use cold water to rinse your face and close your pores!

2.Exfoliate your whole body!

Exfoliation is a major key to healthy skin! Chemical scrubs, sugar scrubs, and dry brushes are all great ways to clear the skin’s surface of dead skin cells that clog pores and keep the blood flow circulating nicely.

3.Drink a lot of water

Water is one of the purest, most healthy things for you on this planet. Drinking lots of water and staying hydrated helps your skin stay healthy and rejuvenated.

4.Use eye cream no matter your age

Eye cream isn’t something that should be used after aging signs have appeared. Eye creams help fight aging and keep the skin healthy! If you are young, use eye cream as a preventative. However, if you already see signs of aging, it is never too late to start using eye cream!

5.Use facial oils

Serum is made to penetrate deeply into the skin and deliver a very high concentration of active ingredients. Depending on your skin concern, determines what kind of serum can help you best. Whether it’s hydration, wrinkles, or skin brightening.

6.Add a toner to your routine

Toner helps to remove oil and dirt from the skins surface. Toners are also great for when you want extra cleaning after wearing makeup or other heavy skin products.

7. SUNSCREEN!!!

Sun damage ages the skin like nothing else. Using a sunscreen daily is essential to any skin care routine!

8. VITAMIN C AND RETINOL

Vitamin C provides great antioxidants as well as promotes collagen production. Retinol smoothes wrinkles and boosts the skins elasticity.

9. Sleep with a humidifier

Sleeping with a humidifier on can really help with keeping your skin from getting dry!

I have noticed a big difference with my skin since I started sleeping with a humidifier on a couple of nights a week. I live in Florida which is a very humid climate, if you live somewhere with a dry climate, I would recommend using one every night.

10. Make sure the products you buy are made for your skin type.

This is a very important step! Make sure that you buy products geared towards your skin type. For example, I have combo skin and if I were to buy a product geared towards dry skin, the product would probably provide more moisture than my skin needs, making me look greasy.

Saving you dollas!!

This is a quick post to share with you guys this awesome speaker I got for $11.99 off of Amazon! This is a portable wireless Bluetooth speaker and it works wonderfully. If you have prime, then great because this item is prime eligible!! I was a bit worried because I have never heard of this brand, but the speaker doesn’t take up much space and is perfect for my needs. This doesn’t blare the roof off, but is perfect for listening to some music in your room! You can find the speaker here.
