The fall season has proven to be a time of great self-reflection for me so far. I’ve shaken off the sting of summer flings and endless wedding parties, and have time to sit and breathe again for a minute. This past summer was certainly not the season for self-care and love, at least not for me. As things have quieted down in my mind and I’ve returned to the city (and the spa at the Greenwich Hotel twice for some meditative massages), I’m making decompression a priority through the end of the year. My heart simply can’t take any more aches and pains and my goal for what’s left of 2017 is to rebuild some of the confidence I’ve lost during the past few years; becoming a fully-formed adult certainly isn’t easy. I’m sure you can relate.
I celebrate my birthday every September 29th, a yearly milestone that helps to bring me into a place of reflection. While I exercise, and eat clean, and meditate, and talk with my therapist every week to work on getting my groove back (hey, Stella), it’s also safe to say that sometimes, for a product junkie such as myself, a little retail therapy can go a long way to aid in the journey of feeling good about oneself. Call me shallow or crazy, but my most successful, enduring relationship in my life has been with lotions, potions, scents, and serums.
Clear skin and perfectly shiny hair has a genuine effect on how I feel when I look in the mirror. Inner beauty trumps outer beauty, always, but my god does it feel good when I wake up with a perfectly even skin tone.
So, because they always love me back, I look to beauty products for a quick dose of confidence my soul desperately needs at the moment. And as luck would have it, the fall season DOES require an updated skincare regime, so my power to purchase doesn’t feel indulgent or needy. I NEED these products just as much as my skin does, okay?
From redness reducers to a rose-oil serum, check out the newness I’m surrounding myself with to help me get from my bed, to the fitness studio, to work, and beyond. I’m feeling looking, smelling good, and looking good – all for myself, for now.
