The likelihood of me ever being snowed in living in Texas is slim to none. But there was a time, on my birthday nonetheless, that this happened to me. It was more so Blizzarded in or whited-out but whatever you want to call it, I’m just so happy to not have to be holed up inside for hours without end during the snowstorm of the century.
Trust, time ends up going even slower when you are confined by Mother Nature. I feel for your NE folks. Nobody gets it because, sure, you can watch every episode of Friends on Netflix internet permitting, catch up on a good book power permitting and even Insta up a storm (HAH, storm. Yes, I had to do it…). But how many pretty snow photos can you realistically possibly filter and post before you realize the need to save your battery?
For you unlucky few who go through this quarantined torture time and time again, there is no better time to get your beauty on to recover from the winter damage.
Give yourself a dirty facial of sorts.
Raise your hand if you have a ton of skin-care products lying around that get used once a year. Grab that facial mask and indulge in the experience. If you have never tried a clay mask, you really.really.really. should. Check out Botanics! Your skin will love you for it and you’ll return to work looking like you spent your weekend at a fancy-shmancy spa, not your living room couch.
Try a new color, style, look and glam it all up! You know playing with makeup is a skill we have mastered since the days we stole our mom’s lipsticks and used them as crayons. Oh YSL, how I mistreated you. This is the best time to practice and try all the things you’ve only seen on Pinterest. Be wild and daring!
This is the time of the year that without fail my skin feels the most dry, snow or no snow. Slather on a nourishing mask and if you’re in the market, I am obsessed with Olay. Instant glowy-ness to rock your bare skin, anytime, anywhere!
Do the dreaded and clean your makeup brushes. You know you need to.
Read a good beauty blog 😉 shameless promotion, I know.
Do some yoga.
Okay, so this might not seem very beauty-esque, but I’ve been told the way to zen is to take a half hour or three to stretch it out to leave you feeling more relaxed and revitalized. Burn a few candles, make a playlist on Spotify, and get your downward dog on.
Sending some warm Marsala tinted kisses your way.
But before I go, thanks to Botanics #powerofplants and Olay for sponsoring today’s story and bringing out our #BestBeautiful
