We all want beautiful skin right?!?! I know I sure do but more often than not, it seems so far out of reach from me. You see, I have had 4 main enemies that have been making it nearly impossible for me to achieve my ideal skin.
The Four Enemies Are:
Stress & Lack of Sleep
This is my biggest enemy and let me tell you, we go way back! As a military spouse with one 6 year old, an almost 1 year old, and a full time job, I find myself with little time to de-stress and relax. I am often up until midnight working and then wake up at 4am to start the new day. With this kind of lifestyle, you can bet my skin is taking a beating. My skin is often exhausted, which dramatically reduces brightness and vitality
Unless you live in a bubble, we all are exposed to a dirty world that pollutes our skin on a daily basis. Did you know that on average we come into contact with about 700,000 toxins each and every day?!? Yikes! These toxins challenge our skins strength and quality and more often than not we are left with worn down, dull, sallow, sensitive and prematurely aged skin.
An Unbalanced Diet
This is one of my strengths, yet one of my weakness. I know how to eat really healthy compared to the average person and I have done tons of research on it; however, I struggle with balancing the things I eat. I get stuck on the same healthy foods and constantly eat them over and over and everything, healthy or not, needs to be in moderation. I also love fruit more than veggies so my body is often not PH balanced like it should be. And I have a confession; I am ADDICTED to these Paleo chocolate chip cookies. I seriously make them like everyday. I eat half the cookie dough and bake the other half. Granted they are healthier than the average cookie, they still don’t need to be indulged in everyday! Having an unbalanced diest can lead to enlarged poes, oiliness, lines and wrinkles.
And UV Rays
Even just 15 minutes out in the sun everyday can lead to wrinkles, dark spots, and damage. Most of us spend well over that amount of time in the sun. I get that much sun just from photographing my outfit of the day posts!
Now for the good news, both you and I no longer have to worry about these enemies standing in our way from achieving our ideal skin. You see Vichy recently came out with the line Idéalia, a skin serum and eye cream that counteracts the 4 enemies of ideal skin and provides a visible transformation of skin quality in just 8 days. To good to be true? Actually its not! I just took the 8-day #LifeProofSkin challenge using the Vichy Idéalia Life Serum and Eye Cream and was able to achieve a more even & illuminated skin tone, smaller pores, and smoother skin. I cant wait to see how much more my skin improves as I continue to use this product. Finally, there is a light at the end of the tunnel for me and my abused skin!
You can find Vichy Idéalia at your local Ulta store!
