I also plan to go to the movies and see Wrath of the Titans. I LOVE these kind of movies! Huge monsters, good vs. evil, mythology and fantasy. I eat that kind of stuff up. HaHaHa Reviews are all over the place. So the jury is still out on this one. Was always a a fan of THE ORIGINAL Clash of The Titans (not the new one). I love movies that "take you to other places". I'll also probably dine out.Here are some pics from Wrath of the Titans and a video preview...
Oh yeah, the final part to my Skincare Regimen. HaHa
Let's get started...Moisturize & Replenish
After ALL of that cleaning and scrubbing I feel it's important to moisturize. My favorite body lotion is Archipelago Oat Milk Lotion. Love this stuff! FYI - It's an Allure Magazine Editor Favorite also. It's creamy, white and not too heavy. I've been using it for years. I use Mary Kay's Timewise moisturizer and Timewise day solution with sunscreen on my face.
My skin tone can change if I'm not feeling well, tired or other factors, so when I need a pigment boost I use Jergens Natural Glow. It's lightweight, non-sticky and doesn't give you that dreaded orange oompa loompa look. I use it all over.
Skincare from the Inside
I've only stated what I do on the outside in regards to skincare, but it's important for me to also tell you what I do from within. I make sure I get enough rest. I drink LOTS of water and I JUICE. Yes, I juice on the weekends.
I started juicing about 3 years ago. I wasn't sure if I would like it, but I love it and feel the difference when I do. I did my research online and found the Breville Juicer to be ONE of the best. You have to get off a pretty penny when purchasing one, but when it came I didn't have to screw one thing together, cleaning is super easy and I don't have to cut fruit or veggies into tiny little pieces. I love my Breville Juicer and I highly recommend it.
My Juice Combinations:
Another Cool Fruit & Vegetable Mix is: Spinach (1 bag), Cucumber (1), Pear (1), Celery (2), Mango (1). When using mangos and papaya it can get a little expensive unless you're in an area where they are plentiful. They also don't produce a lot of juice. I prefer eating mangos and papaya! haha But it does taste good :)
Smoothie Girl: In my blender, I like to make banana and strawberry smoothies. Smoothies are refreshing especially this time of year and offer a nice alternative to not so healthy sweet treats. I simply use ice and honey (to sweeten) to make these.
Farmer's Market and Mr. Okra: I go to the store, but I like going to Farmer's Markets for really fresh produce and I'm really lucky to have a fruit and vegetable man (Mr. Okra) that sometimes passes by my house. Yes! Can you believe it!?! and I live in the CITY. The taste and quality is truly amazing. So I try to support local vendors.
So that's it you guys! Along with walking on the treadmill (which I just started back doing) and using sunscreen on my face and body (Neutrogena) is why my skin IS what it is. I don't know if this would qualify as HIGH MAINTENANCE, because many of the products I use are not expensive (only a few are).
I use a lot of DIFFERENT products from different brands. I would LOVE to use just one brand, but I haven't found one brand that can give me what I need or do the things I need it to do. HaHaHa Only if we lived in a PERFECT world! HaHa!
Have a Great Weekend Everybody!
