The holiday season is a time for indulgence. Most of us have too much to eat and drink, too many late nights out, and that impossible list of “to-dos” to complete in order to prepare for the events of the season.
Unfortunately, that creates a lot of stress on our bodies the entire months of November and December. This stress works collectively and wreaks havoc on our body, mind, and spirit. Luckily, we have your body and skin covered between Hard Night Good Morning and Ultimate Living products. Hard Night Good Morning comes to the rescue for your skin, and within a very short time, you will regain that beautiful, hydrated glow that you had B.C. (Before Christmas).
Let’s begin with the basics. Cleanse your skin with one of our gentle cleansers to rid the skin of dirt, makeup, and debris as the first step in your skin recovery regimen. Twice a week for 2 weeks, you should use the Hard Night Good Morning Detox Mineral Masque to relieve the skin of toxins and debris. After each cleansing in the AM or PM and after masque use, be sure to reestablish your skin’s pH balance with a spritz of the Detox Toner.
The next step in your regimen is our amazing L22 Elixir. With powerful anti-aging ingredients and a delivery system that reaches the deepest layers of the skin, L22 Elixir will be the most efficacious potion you have ever used. We are extremely proud of this luxurious addition to our skin care line and are confident you will see an improvement in your skin with daily use. I call it my magic in a bottle, born from my knowledge of skin care ingredients with a little bit of alchemy for good measure!
Your last step during the detoxification process is Hard Night Good Morning Nighttime Moisturizer for intense hydration and moisturization when your skin is most receptive. Continue this routinely for two weeks and you will be delighted with your refreshed and beautiful skin.
Next up, the body that you’ve abused relentlessly during the holidays. All those appetizers, cocktails, and desserts have not only added a few pounds but have made you feel slightly grumpy and out of sorts. Just ask my husband! My diet has turned me into Cruella de Ville!
Now is the time to get back to clean healthy eating, with lots of vegetables, fruits, fish, and chicken. It’s best to cut out dairy, gluten, and sugar. Lots of fresh herbs, spices, and olive or avocado oil will be beneficial during this post-holiday detox. I have switched back to coconut oil for high heat cooking and reinstated my daily warm lemon water. Be sure to go easy on the salt, and replace some of your coffee intake (notice I don’t say ALL, as I could NEVER live without my coffee) with green or herbal teas. Your body, inside and out, will thank you for the break from all those heavy foods and alcoholic drinks.
In addition, this is a great time to incorporate a green drink into your daily routine. Ultimate Living's Green Miracle is the perfect supplement for any regimen. It provides over 80 ingredients full of pure nutrition to build the immune system and detoxify the body for optimum performance. No time to eat all your fruits and vegetables? No worries, Green Miracle has got you covered.
Since you have decided to get yourself healthy and beautiful for the New Year, I would encourage you to go one step further. Examine your life and reflect on all of the things that prevent you from looking and feeling your best. That can even mean the people you surround yourself with. You are too valuable and unique to accept less than kindness and respect from friends, acquaintances, and coworkers. In order to be the most positive, accepting, and kind person you can be, remember to look for those traits in the people around you. It may be time to cut ties with anyone that only sees the negative in all situations. 2018 is YOUR YEAR! Make it a beautiful one.
There’s busy, and then there is “dashing in heels” busy.
We know our founder, D’Andra Simmons, would agree with Gretchen Bauer, founder of BSWANKY, when she says that every day running your own business is an adventure...an adventure that absolutely requires dashing in heels.
