Happy New Year, everyone! Can you believe it’s 2017?! Every new year, I can’t help but come up with resolutions and set new goals for myself. I make sure I write them down and try my best to make them as specific as possible. This year is no exception of course, and one of my biggest resolutions for 2017 is to take better care of my mind and body. I love being busy, and tend to feel guilty when I am not working. One of the ways I plan to nourish my mind this year, is learn to take time off and travel more! I believe that it’s a great way to clear your mind and stay inspired.
My first stop was at this beautiful penthouse in Los Angeles! I decided to do a mini staycation in the city and I am so glad that I did because the view was absolutely breathtaking. It was such a great way to unwind and recharge! My next stop is Mexico and Hawaii! I’m so excited and can’t wait to plan more trips throughout the year.
As part of this resolution, I’d also like to take better care of my body by drinking more water, eating more plant-based foods, and sticking to a skincare routine that remedies my dry skin. Although I love living in Los Angeles and it’s going to be two years since I’ve been here, the weather has really taken a toll of my skin. Having sunny days 75% of the time is something I am really thankful for, but it has dried up my skin drastically. If you live in warmer climates like I do, then some of you might know what I am talking about with being “blessed” with dry skin! I usually experience flaky, dry skin around my elbows, hands and legs. I’ve resorted to many different lotions and oils, and while it did provide temporary solution, it just wasn’t enough. A few weeks ago, I decided that I was going to try something different, and start my skincare routine in the shower with Olay’s reformulated Ultra Moisture Body Wash. There’s a whole lot of hydration packed into this lightweight body wash, which also includes an ingredient called Pro-Glycerin, which allows the product’s moisturizers to absorb through the skin’s layers much quicker and treats dry skin deep within, rather than just the skin’s surface.
The Olay Ultra Moisture Body Wash have quickly become my go to body-care favorites. I love how it doesn’t feel heavy or greasy at all—in fact, it has Lock-in-Moisture technology which allows the moisture to sink into skin, leaving visibly nourished, silky, and smelling SO GOOD. I wish I started this routine much sooner, but I’m glad that I’m kicking the New Year off with healthy-looking skin that feels smooth and hydrated!
I hope this inspires you to set healthy goals for the year! What are some of your New Year’s resolution? I’d love to hear them!
