On Sunday’s we skincare.
My perfectly tanned, smooth, wrinkle-free young 20 something skin is in the rearview. Life is so crazy these days it is hard to keep up with the latest. The few spare minutes I have to read blogs, I often just browse headlines before I am tending to a bruised knee, or a life-altering spilled bowl of goldfish. I am most certainly not complaining but the small part of me that still gets priority wants to keep myself looking as youthful as possible, despite thriving on little sleep & 4 cups of coffee per day.... I know I am not alone in this either!
Cue my main man, Frank. That's Frankincense essential oil. Every night I dab a bit of Frank on my forehead, cheeks and chin then rub in with my nighttime moisturizer. My skin has never felt so soft or looked so healthy despite being a mom of 3 babies. I am telling you, it is a GAME CHANGER.
So much so, I even had someone comment on how supple my skin looked while I was still in the delivery room, at 2:00am after being awake for 22 hours after delivering my 3rd baby.
In addition to my main squeeze, Frank, one ritual my husband and I follow is what we term " Skin care Sunday." I'll let you guess what it means. We either use a fun mask or under eye patches then I finish with my jade roller. It's also the time I experiment with any new products or oil blends.
Recently, I made us a "glow serum" using my fav skin benefiting oils and we take time to hydrate our money makers, while bonding over the fact we cannot get enough of our oils. YES, even my macho, anti-oily husband has come around to this natural living thing!
Grab yourself a cute little bottle dropper & get making this serum!
Glow, Baby, Glow! Serum Recipe:
+ 10 drops Lavender
+ 10 drops Frankincense
+ 10 drops Copiaba
+ carrier oil (I like to use rose hip seed oil on my face)
= ENJOY the softest, supple skin :)
What are some of your absolute favorite go -to skin oils?
the most basic suburban .....
For starters..... Basic. The term can be perceived to mean many different things. To me, it's; Simple. At the core, I am the same as many of you tuning in (major thank you for being here)!
I've become a natural living & wellness advocate working to do better everyday for my family & would love to help you do the same!
I take advantage of the perfect imperfections each day brings, while trying to raise good, kind babies.
So, if you ever catch yourself wondering what a simple suburban life is like, you can find me, The Basic Suburban, chasing my tiny humans & pup, while getting oily doing house projects (because, DIY life), slowly browsing every aisle at Target Starbucks in hand, sipping wine promptly at 5pm (maybe even before), & trying to smile & laugh my way through the day.
