Good habits are hard. When something makes you feel great, look great and feel a little better about yourself you should keep doing it right? SO WHY DON’T WE?!
Here are a few things that make me feel awesome, and that I’m reminding myself to do daily >>
First thing, DRY BRUSH
It’s said to boost circulation, sweep away dead skin cells, stimulate the lymph nodes, improve digestion, improve the appearance of cellulite, and help the cells and body in general remove waste.
It’s basically a no brainer. Takes 2 minutes before you step into the shower.. do it while the water is heating up!
GOOP has a fabulous write up on it HERE.

Next, OIL PULLING. I used to do this faithfully everyday.. and I felt GREAT. But life gets in the way and you forget one day and all of a sudden it’s been a year since you’ve done it. Ugh. I started again this morning. Body brush while the shower heats up and I oil pull while I’m in the shower. It’s not 20 minutes but a solid 10 everyday is good enough for me. The thing you need to note is not to spit the oil out in the sink or shower, always the garbage! I use coconut oil, play around with the quantity you use until you get used to it!
Next problem. My feet. Anytime I get a pedicure I get scolded for the shape of my heels. Dry, cracked, achy cracks that are hard to walk on. I don’t wear socks ever. Winter or summer. I own one pair of socks. Really. My solution.. THIS. IF I remember to use it everyday, my heels turn into a soft, not cracked dream. Now do I do it everyday.. I wish. But, incorporate it into the shower while you’re oil pulling after you’ve dry brushed and voila, three things out of the way and you haven’t even brushed your teeth yet! We’re on a roll!! One more thing, if you’re lazy like me at bedtime and can’t be bothered to do a full face wash with cleanser ( guilty!! ) use these. I LOVE them! Stay tuned because I’m going to do a round up of all the products I use from this brand that I actually can’t live without.
Ok, so we’re out of the shower. Dry brush, oil pull and soft feet, sweet! Next up our skin. I can’t tell you how happy I am I switched to BEAUTY COUNTER. Not only is this company incredible for what they stand for and the ingredients they use, the product itself is better than any I’ve ever used. I used to spend $100+ on Tata Harper face cream, and it was good, but not as good as this. My skin has never felt or looked better. I’m inching towards 40 ( I’ll be 39 this summer ) and there is no time like the present to take care of your skin. These products I do use everyday without forgetting ha ha!
When it comes to hair, I owe my now great locks to Michelle.. when I reached out to her my hair was a DISASTER. Over processed, no style.. ahh.. a year and a half since my first visit I couldn’t love my hair more. Pop over and visit @euphoric.hair.salon :) I see her next week and I can’t wait. She’s a miracle worker and the biggest sweetheart you’ll ever meet.
