My everyday To-Do list
1- Hand me that water bottle!
Yes, this might be a cliche, but it’s because it works that people actually talk about it. We could literally point out more than 100 specific benefits for drinking water, but yet some people just forget or neglect the drinking it. I know, I know, it has no flavor… But believe me your whole body changes with only consuming 8 glass a day. Yo detox, your skin looks better, digestion goes better, your face will be softer, your hair will be stronger, your body cells function better and the list goes on and on.
2- oil me up!
Being a Curl Goddess (Just Kidding) Anyone with curly hair will tell you how hard it is to keep them moisturized, for me the trick is to give my scalp an oil massage from time to time, but also just oil up all my hair the night before I wash them and put them on a hair cap for sleeping with it on. Im a really big fan of the coconut oil results, but sometimes not so much of the smell during the whole day, so this way (doing it overnight) you can just take advantage of the hydration without felling like a coconut all day long. ; )
Also on the top of my list are: Olive Oil, Almond Oil, Jojoba, Castor Bean, Shea Butter and Karite Butter.
3- uhhh sunscreen!
Coming form the Caribbean with my tan that lasts forever and chocolate skin, (no, i’m not talking about the color, I mean it melts) Sunscreen I simply a must! Im exposed all day long to the sun, sometimes directly, some others not, but definitely living in summer land can damage your skin. And remember just because it’s cloudy, doesn’t mean you are not getting the sun reflection, so don’t forgets yours either.
4- Make up off!
One very common mistake us female do, is to wear makeup for too long. I get it, you can feel prettier, but girl lets face it, it can harm your skin if you over do it or the very often “I was to tired to take it off before I went to bed” (its happened to me 3 times in my life, yes, three).
If you are a make up lover and like to use it everyday, juts remember to do facial mask often and visit a dermatologist, sometimes you need extra help to get rid of impurities on your skin.
The days that I know I have to use make form morning to nigh I would usually remove my make up, at least the foundation, leaving my eyes intact and then have a redo just before my next commitment.
Other tip to let your pores breath is ask yourself, is it necessary that I use it today ? Remember you can always just use something to hydrate your skin, some mascara, lipstick and you are good to go.
5- Say cheese!
Don’t forget to smile! Just having a chance to live, is a great reason to smile. Yes looks matter, but your attitude is really what is going to captivate others. Felling good about yourself and treating yourself like it is going to get the best results posible in your life.
Remember, one drop of honey can catch more flies than a gallon of vinegar. So take that beautiful smile out!
