No Time for That

I think it’s fair to say we are all guilty of spewing the ole, “I don’t have time for that,” line, especially when being asked to do something we don’t want to do.  But from time to time, I have to evaluate what I am doing that leaves me with such little time.  For instance,  I told hubby I didn’t have time to put the laundry away, I was just swamped.  However, as I replay the day in my head I recall scrolling FB for quite some time after making my necessary calls and texts in the morning….

FB

I hear people constantly saying they need extra money, but when I approach them with my fabulous opportunity the most used rejection is, “I don’t have time for that.”  Those same people continue to complain about their financial situation while also posting on FB how they binge watched three seasons of their new favorite show in two days and send me requests for extra lives on games I didn’t even know existed.  I get it, those games are addictive and that is exactly why I don’t play them!  I have folks say they don’t have time for a skincare regimen.  Well, it takes all of a minute to wipe your makeup off with our wipes and another minute to throw on some moisturizer but hey, if you want to deal with the deep wrinkles later because you didn’t want to head to bed a few minutes early, that’s ok, we have a cream for that, too!

I began my business while I was working a FT job and my kids were one and five.  Yes, I had to fit it into an already hectic schedule, but at the time we needed a little extra for bills so I made it work.  Over time, the business turned into something so much more for me.  It became an opportunity to not only be home with my children, but continue to contribute to my household financially.  Eventually, with some planning, scheduling, and lots of great people along the way I left that job.  Now, do not mistake the term “work from home” as “chilling at the crib”.  I still have to work, I just get to do it when I want.  And when I say work I mean talk on the phone with friends while collecting their orders or chatting with a new team member about how they can earn some extra or make a plan to be home with their children.  So, next time you are about to complain about your situation, stop and think about how many hours you spend on TV, FB, or the worst…Pintrest…If you have 5-10 hours a week, you have time to build a business.  And for $25, what do you really have to lose?  Curious, click here and complete the form!

Ready to face the summer?

Winter can do a number on your skin, particularly your face’s sensitive but exposed skin.  While we all hopefully were using our moisturizers in the cooler months, everyone can still do with a little TLC on their face to get it summer ready!

Dry cooler air or even the constant change from cool to warm can create uneven tone and dry patches.  That leads to dull looking skin and very poor foundation application!  If your foundation looks splotchy, uneven, or gritty it’s not the foundation, it’s your skin!  Some gentle exfoliating, treatments, and a good moisturizer can bring that summer glow out and prime skin for the warmer summer foundation shades!

First, toss out any facial cleanser that has soap in it.  Soap is drying and will strip away all the good oils on your face.  Even if you have oily skin, you don’t want to damage and dry out your skin.  The chart above shows the different cleansers we offer, but anything that is soap free will do just fine!  My favorite is the Rich Foaming Cleanser because it’s light but leaves a great clean feel with a soft fragrance that isn’t overpowering!  Click here to read the details on it!  We also have a Daily Scrub that is great for a gentle exfoliation, but I recommend that only every other day or every third day.  If you notice a lot of dry patches or unevenness, I would recommend adding the Retexturizing Peels.  This was a Redbook MVP for skincare in 2016!  The complete details are on the site, but it gives a professional-like resurfacing treatment at home and you will see a difference even on the first one!  Better, brighter tone and more even skin surface can be seen after the first treatment and only gets better as you continue using it!  This is strong, though, and does contain several acids so you do not use it daily!  If you use any acids on your facial skin, be sure to use a good moisturizer with an SPF during the day to prevent any redness or irritation.  I have switched to a lighter strength moisturizer to prep my skin for the season change since I am doing more treatments.  The Vitale Day Cream has SPF 25, is a bit less oily as it is for more youthful skin, and has a light pleasant fragrance unlike some strong skincare regimens!  I will switch back to my normal one after I finish this jar.  If you’re not sure which regimen is best for you, click here to use our Skincare Advisor to help you!  It’s a short but fun quiz!  However, I am also always happy to do a skincare consult so feel free to reach to me!  Skincare is my favorite!  I hope you find the best regimen to get your ready to face the summer!
