3 Simple Ways to Take Care of Yourself

Beauté Pacifique Vitamin A Eye Cream

At 35, I realize that there is no shame in helping my body as much as I can to get the results I want. Whether that means going to the gym, taking my vitamins, or getting the good eye cream.

Which ways do you take care of yourself? Are there ways you can improve? I know where I fall short and most of my bad habits started during the years when my kids were young and I was struggling to survive day-to-day.

Say Hello to H20

Those 12-24 cups of coffee a day I was consuming to stay awake and to keep my kids alive have been clawed back to almost no coffee at all. I’ve instead added plain ole water to the mix and am seeing (and feeling) the benefits. In return, my skin and body function is amazing right now.

Counting Those ZZZs

Sleep was another thing I struggled with. Having small kids made it so I was going asleep super late to have “me time” after they fell asleep and waking up super early to take care of them. Now I try to get the coveted 8-hour sleep and that sometimes I fall asleep when my kids do but my days have become so much more productive in return.

Beauté Pacifique to the Rescue

At the end of last year, I discovered the Danish beauty brand Beauté Pacifique and upgraded my skincare routine. My latest addition, the Vitamin A eye cream, was something I didn’t realize I needed until I started to use it.

I am ageing, nothing huge but I could see where the small lines were forming from too many hours spent squinting at my computer or laughing with my girlfriends over life’s ups-and-downs.

I am not embarrassed over those lines but if there are proven ways to decrease the signs of ageing, sign me up! Two times a day is all it takes to see visible results all by telling the collagen fibre structures to grow denser and more organized, just like it used to when I was younger. No more dark zones that are caused by thin skin around the eye, Buh-BYE!

Since I am always short on time I love how quickly it absorbed into my skin, all while it seemed to rehydrate my tired eyes. After some research, I realized that the cream used two different types of vitamin A in a formula made with Squalene. Squalene is something that our bodies make a lot of when we are young but slow down on producing as we age.

Swap It Out for the Win

Beauté Pacifique as a brand is loved by supermodels and beauty experts and over the past 23 years, they have grown their brand to include body care products, facial care and sun care products, products that target specific skin problems and even hair products.

The positive effects of Beauté Pacifique products can be clearly seen by ultrasound-scanning “before and after” shots so you know they are the real deal.

    I am seeing the fine lines now at 40. I definitely need a proper routine now more than ever. Maybe 2021 will be the year.

    The first tip, getting a full night’s rest, is so important and yet, so difficult to achieve.

    I was looking for a skin protection for my daily use from sun rays that can bring moisture back to my skin and add some glow. Any suggestions?

    I need to reduce the amount of coffee I drink and while I like water I just don’t drink enough of it.
