So far, 2013 has been a year of changes for me. I’ve made it my personal mission to better myself in a lot of areas, and I’m amazed by how many things I’m able to address by just taking better care of myself physically and emotionally. Obviously, it was a natural fit for me when I was asked to take part in a 21-day Meaningful Beauty challenge. The goal? Eliminate one bad skincare habit, and gain a few positive lifestyle habits for a happier, healthy me. Sounds easy enough, right?
A few of the Meaningful Beauty products I’m already fond of!
They say it takes 21 days to break a bad habit, and I have a few habits I should have done something about breaking a long time ago! One of them—not being as diligent with sunscreen as I should be. While I’ve always been religious about applying it to my face—I can’t say the same for my neck, decollete, and backs of my hands. With L.A. traffic being absolutely horrible, and it taking more than twice the amount of time it should really take to get anywhere, I’ve exposed my skin to UVAs and UVBs through my car windows in those areas by leaving them unprotected. So for now, I’m working on breaking that bad skincare habit by applying Meaningful Beauty’s Skin Brightening Decollete & Neck Treatment with SPF 15 every morning, no matter what. If it’s good enough for Cindy Crawford, it’s good enough for me! Have you seen her lately? She looks as incredible today as she did 20 years ago.
Cindy developed this comprehensive skincare line with Dr. Jean-Louis Sebagh. Dr. Sebagh is a renowned anti-aging specialist, and he utilizes his proprietary melon extract in this affordable collection that boasts over 30 products. I’m exclusively using Meaningful Beauty throughout my challenge.
As for which lifestyle habits I want to develop? Of course I want to be physically healthier, but the main thing I’m focusing on is developing healthy sleeping habits! You’ve probably seen me online at all hours of the night, moaning and groaning on Twitter about how I’d do anything to sleep. This issue has been happening for years, and I think it’s really starting to grate on me. I’m taking part in activities that reduce stress, and I’m shutting down earlier at night than I usually do. I’m also getting acupuncture with the hopes it will help with my insomnia, and I’m engaging in quiet, solitary activities like yoga—all in the hopes of quieting my mind so I can get better sleep.
I’ll update you next week with more of my healthy activities that are making meaningful changes, and a bonus giveaway. Wish me luck!
