Going Green

I’ve never really had any major skin problems. Even now, I have occasional breakouts, but that’s because on the rare occasions that I wear makeup, I don’t always wash my face before I go to bed. For the past two months, I’ve been working a gig that requires me to wear LOTS of makeup. I’ve been very diligent about washing it off at night b/c it’s not the type of makeup I’d be okay with falling asleep in.

Since working this gig, I’ve noticed way more breakouts than usual and my skin is extremely dry. I recently started a new skin care line, so hopefully that’ll help.

But even more important than what I put on my skin, is what I’m putting in my body. So, in addition to trying a new cleansing/exfoliating/moisturizing routine, I’ve also been drinking more water and TRYING to be more conscious about what I eat (it’s a struggle b/c I LOVE sweets and pizza).

People have been all “team green smoothie” for a while and I contemplated joining the bandwagon, but was largely unmotivated until I found this website. The recipes look and sound so good (and easy) that I was excited to try some of them out. So I took a trip to the farmer’s market and stocked up.

So far, I’ve tried two of the recipes and they were both very good. I’ve definitely got to invest in a better blender because my smoothies weren’t quite as smooth as I would’ve liked but the flavor (and I’m assuming the nutrition as well) was definitely there.

I’m looking forward to seeing how this will affect the way I look and feel. Next step…CONSISTENT exercise.  *cue scary music sting*
