Today we got lots of chores done! Always feels good to have vacuumed floors and clean bathrooms! This morning, we loaded everyone up and went up to visit “Timpanogos Caves”. I would tell you more about when they were discovered or maybe even who, or how they were discovered… or even a little cave trivia if we didn’t have a totally lame guide!! And while we didn’t learn much, we enjoyed the rather strenuous climb 1.5 miles up the mountain (and down again)… it was a great outing to kick off a little summer!!
Now that all the kids are in bed, I have a little ME time… I usually wind my week down with some pampering. So, I am not overly self-indulgent when it comes to ME- especially not lately! Topping my list of personal indulgences is a ‘large diet coke’ from Sonic! No facials, lunch dates, massages, manicures… I do enjoy a pedicure when I can’t touch up the paint and get away with it anymore… but I think that we all have our own little ‘thing’ that gives us our sanity, a little comfort and joy amid the chaos! Right? Well, I’ll tell you that while I neither have the time or money for SPA visits… I LOVE having a facial. For some reason a ‘face treatment’ of some kind or another totally makes me feel better! I guess “rejuvenated” is the word. I have been using NuSkin skin products for many years, and a couple years ago I got what’s called a GALVANIC spa.
It’s a hand-held device that delivers the results of a fabulous facial in 5-10 minutes and for about $7 per treatment. AND your skin totally radiates afterward. The treatment is like a massively serious scientific masterpiece of cleansing and toning and (most importantly) anti-aging. I started using the Galvanic about 6 months ago regularly, and now I am addicted. I use it 2x per week, and I am addicted to the tightness and tone of my skin after I use it. i can be running on no sleep, or crazy travel –and show up without bags under my eyes, and it totally reduces the appearance of wrinkles…anyway- I LOVE it!! the other thing that I absolutely love, and use at least once a week is the Epoch Mud Mask. I have tried lots of mud masks… and this one leaves your face singing the halleluiah chorus. I am not kidding! Between these two, I guess I just give myself the tidbit of pampering that makes me happy! Sadly, i ran out of my mud mask stuff last week, and I haven’t used it in over a week, and I am realizing how much I miss it. I loved the products so much that I attempted to sell them last fall, but realized that I couldn’t spread my focus that thin… however, my sister-in-law LaRane does sell it! ALL NuSkin products have a money-back guarantee, so if you are interested…you can contact LaRane here. there is such a night and day difference in my skin in the last 6 months- I love it. She can also tell you about my favorite face wash (180), polishing peel (this is kinda like a microderm abrasion... leaves my skin SO smooth) and moisturizer (moisture restore) AND… the ULTIMATE lip gloss that you have EVER tried. It’s reasonable ($11 I think) but it’s called “contour” lip gloss (I like the clear best)… it’s not really a plumper exactly, but it plumps and smooths your lips like NOTHING I have ever used. And it totally stays on. Tonight I used my galvanic but I am out of the mud mask and haven’t been able to find my lip gloss in a week, and it’s totally bugging me! It’s made me realize how sometimes it’s the little things! if you are looking for something new- check it out. LaRane is awesome, she’d love your business!
Have a wonderful weekend, and hopefully you can work in a little personal pampering!
