I decided to forgo any official New Years resolutions this year. Instead I want to just continue living clean, healthy, and happy. Sounds so cliche, I know, but it’s kind of the ultimate constant goal, isn’t it? Two things I’ve gotten more serious about over the past few years is my health and my skin. (Which really go hand in hand).
Knock on wood – I so rarely get sick. (I know I am jinxing myself right now just typing that). The past few years I attribute it partly to downing green smoothies as frequently as I can, to sneak in as many veggies as I can. I have a serious sweet tooth that I’m always trying to keep in check, so it’s become my routine to down my greens first thing in the morning. Then I don’t feel too guilty later as I reach for the inevitable chocolate / gummies / wine / martini. My green smoothie is always some sort of mix up of lots of spinach/kale + a little fruit, and sometimes a random like almond butter, coconut milk, or avocado will hop in there as well. I feel like it’s a win when I start my day on a healthy note.
As for my skin, I’ve always been a face nut – fresh new bottles of face potion / lotion / serum / cleansers have always been exciting to me, like little bottles full of big promises to change your skin for the better! So I was thrilled when Clearasil – a line I haven’t used since I was a teenager – sent me their Daily Clear line to try out, and asked me to share how I kick off a winning day. The super refreshing smell is the first thing I noticed with the products, and I’ve gotten to the point where I look forward to my daily face washing routine with this refreshing little trio. You can too – as they are letting you try it for free here!
