I Woke Up Like This

.. uhh not! Especially since I’ve been staying up with Chloe because her days & nights are switched, I definitely need extra help to get that fresh faced ” I woke up like this” look!

I’ve always had shoulder pains but lately its been super painful because I’ve been cradling Chloe in my arms so often. 13lbs is no joke (omg, can’t believe she’s 13 lbs already!!). That’s why last week I had a much needed spa day with my team. I got a deep tissue massage (it helped that the masseuse had such strong hands!) and a foot scrub. I do a lot of home remedies for beauty, but sometimes it’s so amazing to just have a spa day for a total body relaxation! Especially at this amazing Elegance Spa that’s right by my house! As I’ve been spending more time at home, I just love finding hidden gems in my neighborhood.

I’ve been relying on home remedies a lot because my skin has been kind of funky! (Not sleeping will do that to you ..) Aside from using organic avocado & pineapple facial masks, I’ve also been relying on using Biore Deep Cleansing Charcoal Pore strips once a week to get rid of any dirt and oil stuck in my pores. (I should have warned you guys earlier that we’re getting down to the nitty gritty details of pore gunk today hah.) I can remove weeks of buildup with just one strip! I love that these strips are made of natural charcoal since it’s known to draw out any deep down impurities. And let’s face it.. seeing the evidence on the Biore strip is already half the fun! And in case you guys didn’t know…Biore has teamed up with Brittany Snow to create the “Strip with Biore” challenge, where all you have to do is post a photo of yourself wearing a Biore strip & tag 3 friends for a chance to walk with Brittany Snow down the red carpet in LA! (Click here for more details) Don’t forget to use hashtags #StripwithBiore #Sweeps!

There’s nothing like pampering yourself and taking care of yourself to make you feel completely rejuvenated & fresh faced. Are you guys taking the time to r&r?

& a HUGE thank you Biore for sponsoring this post!
