Super B…super Me!

Not too long ago someone asked me how I could possibly have so much energy with all that I do?  Working from home, homeschooling my children, pursuing this healthier version of myself and going to 3-4 TRX classes a week, running, multiple activities at church, and of course taking care of my children and running a household!  You know, we pursue and do everything that the Lord puts in front of us.  Have you heard that saying that the Lord will never give you more than you can handle?  Many times I question that!  (I think we all have our moments)  I took the time to really think about her question before I responded.  It took me a few minutes to realize that ever since I started taking better care of myself, and taking Super B every morning, my life doesn’t seem so busy.  It doesn’t seem like it’s more than I can handle because I have the energy to handle it!

Super B is a comprehensive source of the B vitamins essential for good health, like thiamine, riboflavin, niacin, B12, biotin, and folic acid.  It even includes minerals that aid in the assimilation and metabolism of B vitamins.  I realized that even though I was working hard to eat a healthier diet, getting a better source of B vitamins really gave me the energy I needed to “handle it all” so to speak.  🙂  Now I don’t go a day without it!

What are some ways that you like to boost your energy naturally?

How I Take Care of My Skin

 

This is me, taking a quick picture with my favorite product after a great TRX workout!

Have you heard?  Young Living has great products for your face called the ART Skin Care System.  ART stands for ‘Age Refining Technology’.  I have used lots of different skin care products, and have never been fully satisfied with how they work with my skin…until now!  These products are simply amazing!

The best word to describe the difference in my skin from using the ART Skin Care System is that it feels more supple, like it’s hydrated from within.  The ART products are formulated with plant-based ingredients and essential oils.  I love that we have access to such effective, luxurious, NATURAL skincare without the harmful ingredients found in nearly all other skin care systems!

These products look, feel, and smell very luxurious!  I love the hint of sandalwood aroma you can smell when you’re using these.  The Royal Hawaiian Sandalwood oil is one of my most coveted oils, and it is in these products!  Plus it is great for my skin.  The ART Skin Care line also has a few other essential oils in it, like Frankincense, Lavender, and Melissa.  Let me tell you a little bit about each product…

Gentle Cleanser

This foaming cleanser is formulated to cleanse the skin without stripping any of our natural oils.  It is great for my skin because it doesn’t dry it out like some other cleansers have in the past.  I will say that it does a great job taking off my makeup, but not my eye makeup (I don’t use waterproof eye makeup, but I am able to simply use a few drops of sweet almond oil on a cotton ball to remove it).  One pump of cleanser is sufficient to cleanse my face, and I really love using it in the morning to help wake me up and get me going.

Refreshing Toner

I love this toner!  Partly because it smells so good, but also because my skin feels so incredibly clean after using it.  The toner will remove any residual impurities without drying the skin.  I use this only at night, because I noticed that my skin didn’t need it twice a day.

Light Moisturizer

This moisturizer is so lovely!!  I use it both at night and in the morning.  It absorbs into my skin easily, so I can wear it under makeup without getting oily or shiny.  This moisturizer also contains essential oils and natural ingredients to leave my face feeling soft and supple!!

I’m loving the ART Skin Care System and feel like it has truly changed the skin on my face for the better.  Have you tried it?  What do you think?!

Have you heard about Ylang-ylang?

For all the ladies out there, you’ve got to learn about this awesome little oil!  (ok, the men can learn too 😉 )  Ylang ylang smells sooo good & has a beautiful floral aroma. The flower that the oil comes from is so pretty and even when harvested it’s picked by only women because they are gentler with the flowers. Amazing right?! Roll on inner thighs (😳 yes you heard that right) wrists or behind the ears.

Another great way to use Ylang ylang daily is to make your own perfume!  Here’s a great ladies blend that I like to use.  In a 2ml roller bottle combine 4 drops Ylang Ylang, 4 drops Grapefruit, and 10 drops Bergamot with 10 drops of your favorite carrier.  I like to use Almond Oil.  Do you have your own signature blend that you like to use daily for yourself?  Share it in the comments so we can learn from one another!
