I know some of you moms can relate to this: We’re too busy to really worry about feeling beautiful. I’ve got lunches to pack, soccer games to drive to, classrooms to volunteer in. I’m not going anywhere really important so who cares? Well, turns out, I kinda care.
Recently I had my regular eye exam and it was time for me to get a new prescription in my glasses. I got something totally different, which I was assured was in style, than what I would usually go with. And I loved the new look. It spruced me up, made me feel, well, prettier.
So I started taking a little more time in the morning to do my hair. Usually the flat iron came out when we had somewhere special to go. Now I’ve been using it daily. And I feel better. I’d like to think I look better too.
What I’m finding is that some simple efforts on a regular basis make me feel more beautiful every day. So if you’re like me and not into tons of primping and make-up but aren’t ready to throw in the towel on feeling good in your own skin, I’m sharing what works for me.
These are the seven things I keep in my bag of tricks to feel beautiful every day.
Especially in the summer months, you need to keep your skin clean. I think different products and systems work for different people. The Mary Kay Clearproof system has been awesome for me. I’ve been using it for months.
Sunscreen is so important, especially on your face. I like that Neutrogena Sport Face pictured above. I think most of us know you’re going to need sunblock when you’re spending the day at the pool or beach, but really you need it every day that you spend even a little bit of time outside. Protect those beautiful faces!
I always notice a bright smile so I try to keep my teeth white. The whitening strips are great, but I really like this new product, the 2-step Crest Pro-Health HD. It really whitens your teeth and in only 2 minutes in the morning, 2 at night. Easy!
Just do it. I have to keep my hair short because it just looks like a frizzy mess when it’s long, but when it was long, summer = ponytail every. single. day. Take some time and try to style it. I blow mine dry and flat iron it straight pretty much every day. Amazing what a good hair day can do for your mood!
This is just for fun really, but I absolutely feel prettier when my finger and toenails are painted, especially when they’re peeking out of my summer sandals. Pick a fun, bright shade and paint them up. Be sure to smooth the bottoms of your feet with a good file or pumice stone. (Or treat yo’self and go get a mani/pedi at the salon!)
Confession time: I might have skipped a shave or two over the winter months. And I just won’t go into anymore detail there. But now that warm weather is here and I’m wearing shorts on a regular basis, I’m shaving pretty much daily. And you know what? I actually like doing it!
Nothing makes me feel better wearing shorts or a dress than smooth legs. And when you have the right products to do the job it’s easy and you get a great result. Schick makes the best shaving products for women.
And I’m so excited that they are partnering with Universal Studios and teaming up with PITCH PERFECT 2 to invite us to Rock Your Legs! This movie will be in theaters on Friday May 15 and looks hilarious and fantastic. I loved the first Pitch Perfect and cannot wait.
See that Schick TrimStyle Razor in the picture above? It’s a hydrating razor and waterproof bikini trimmer in one, and it will be making its film debut in PITCH PERFECT 2 so be on the lookout!
My favorite Schick razor is the Intuition. Sometimes shaving can really dry my legs out but with this razor that has built in lather and moisturization that’s a non-issue for me.
Look for these special limited edition PITCH PERFECT 2 Schick and Skintimate products in at drug and grocery stores nationwide. If you’re neat a Giant Food Stores, look for them there. I found them in my local Giant, and even at my daughter’s soccer practice I was sitting out of the way, doing a little work in my planner, rocking my legs!
And there’s a chance to win:
- Schick is running a promotion for a FREE movie ticket to see the new blockbuster Pitch Perfect 2 which will be in theaters starting Friday May 15. This promotion will be running in Ahold stores (that’s Stop & Shop, Giant and Martin’s) and when you make a purchase of Schick women’s shave items (any 2 products with a minimum $10 value) you’ll get a print out at the register to redeem a code for their FREE movie ticket. Woot! The promotion will run from 4/26-5/23.
Jewelry was something I didn’t bother with too much because, eh, I wasn’t going anywhere. But it’s like the hair and the nails: If you do it, you will feel better. YOU. Who cares if you don’t see anyone ‘important’ that day? You are important! Treat yourself like you’re special because you are. I like to wear a pair of earrings, a necklace, and some bracelets. What are your favorite pieces to jazz up your look?
So those are my 7 easy steps to feeling beautiful every day. Nothing difficult, just very basic, simple stuff, that you might not be taking the time to do for yourself every day. I’m here to tell you, do it. You deserve it and so do I. Let’s get perty and rock those legs! Need some inspiration? Check out this awesome Rock Your Legs music video! (I love this!)
