‘I don’t have time’ is what I overheard not once, but twice, in just 3 blocks on the sidewalks of NYC. We’re all tired, stressed and short on time, but this new beauty line is a must-have to beat signs of aging and breathe life back into your skin.
I get it — I’m super stressed, too. I feel bad complaining when I have a great job, attentive friends, a caring husband and more, but balancing those things can be hard. I’m trying to make a conscious effort to spend some time on me and relax, even for a few minutes, every day.
As much as I would love to get a massage every day to relax , that’s not possible for 99 percent of us — it’s only possible for Mariah Carey ;). But little things can go a long way, and Philosophy is helping remind women — and men — that a simple deep breath is all it takes to refocus and recenter yourself.
My job is filled with stressful situations — going on live TV, writing a ton of original content and interviewing celebrities — it can be overwhelming at times. While I don’t always have time to fit in a deep breathing yoga class, I’ve found a way to incorporate a small, calming ritual into my everyday life.
Millennial Skincare — What To Shop For Gorgeous, Glowing Skin
As a beauty director, skincare and makeup are part of my routine. I test and try tons of products, but this new line from Philosophy really caught my eye. It’s called Take A Deep Breath, and not only do they have an oxygenating gel face cream and eye cream, the line also features key makeup products like a cushion foundation, a cushion blush and a liquid highlighter.
The gel cream feels amazing on the skin, especially in the summer, when temps are scorching and skin gets super sensitive. The eye gel is calming and doesn’t irritate the delicate area around eyes. The cushion foundation is perfect for every day, because it offers coverage, but it’s not too heavy. Plus, it has SPF 20, which is vital to preventing lines and wrinkles.
The cushion blush is super pigmented — a little goes a long way. The buildable coverage comes in 4 gorgeous pink and coral shades, and it actually makes your skin look better as you wear it.
The sheer liquid sunshine bronzer is my personal fave, though. The highlighter is easy to apply and illuminates your cheekbones in the best way. It’s so natural-looking and gorgeous!
The best part is that every time I look at the packaging, I’m reminded to take a moment for myself — I Take A Deep Breath — and I feel like I can conquer anything.
