My School Year’s Resolution To Hydrate And Glow
Happy School Year!
A friend recently told me that September feels like the New Year’s of the fall. I could really relate to that idea… I can’t be the only one who pins lunchbox ideas and ‘first day of school’ signs, promising myself that THIS will be the year I finally get it together for my family. In the spirit of the coming school year’s fresh start, today I’m sharing my own ‘school year resolution’- my goal is to help my skin hydrate and glow!
I Resolve To Hydrate and glow
I’ve posted a few times recently (especially on Instagram) about how hard it has been for me to take care of myself since having kids. I am incredibly hopeful that with some increased time to myself each week, I can finally really start to tackle this goal. One of the things I have always been incredibly self conscious about is my skin, so I’ve been working on finding the products that will really work for me.
Luckily, I’ve been able to find skin care products that are successful for me at Wal-Mart! I’m in there fairly regularly, picking up craft supplies or groceries, so stoppping by skin care aisle for what I need while I’m there is perfect. Plus, the prices there can’t be beat- and every busy mama LOVES an easy way to save a little bit! Check out exactly what I’ll be using to be sure I get (and STAY!) glowing over this coming school year!
Noxzema Classic Clean Original Deep Cleansing Cream
This cleanser is SO nostalgic for me, since I’ve been using it off and on since I was a teenager. (I even remember my mom using it when I was a kid!) Noxzema Classic Clean is my favorite cleanser to use during the warm summer months, since the eucalyptus oil gives it such a cooling feeling. We don’t have central air in our home, so on particularly hot, humid nights, it’s perfect for washing off the sweaty grime of a summer day before bed.
Pond’s Dry Skin Cream
When the weather starts to cool down outside and our heat is going full force inside, my very sensitive skin really needs extra help to stay glowy. Pond’s Dry Skin Cream is the perfect choice because it’s rich and moisturizing without being too heavy or greasy. The cream is hypoallergenic, and won’t clog your pores, so I can moisturize as much as I need to without worrying about breakouts.
Simple Cleansing Wipes
Big shocker here- a mom that LOVES wipes?! These particular wipes are often for removing makeup on the (rare) occasions that I put some on. They even take off waterproof mascara, which we all know can be a tough task! I love throwing a pack of these wipes in my diaper bag or purse, especially in warmer weather. Playing outside with my kids inevitably ends with my face sweaty or dirty, and being able to grab one of these Simple Cleansing Wipes for a quick on-the-go clean up is perfect for a busy mom!
St. Ives Fresh Skin Apricot Scrub
This is another product that I’ve been buying for years, ever since I saw my mom using it while I was young! It’s an incredible scrub, free of parabens, sulfates, and oil, so I don’t have to worry a lot about what I’m putting on my face. The exfoliant pieces are totally natural as well, which is a nice feature. I use this several times a week all year round, whenever I notice my skin looking a bit dull. The St. Ives Fresh Skin Apricot Scrub really does help to remove all those dead skin cells that can start to clog up your pores and hide your glow!
