I’m so vain… I probably think this song is about me. La la laaaaaa.
Well I hope that sentence is more song than truth, but I do want to make sure I’m taking good care of myself pre-wedding day (and really everyday) to look my best. Besides asking for eye cream for Christmas (thanks Mom!) there are a few other helpful things I’m doing my best to keep up with for the next few months before the wedding. And hey, maybe I’ll make a few good habits for the long run too!
I want to keep my pearly whites, well, white! I obviously brush my teeth twice a day (please tell me you do too!) but I’m making more of an effort to floss. Further, I’m using a whitening mouthwash as well as generic teeth whitening strips. For the mouthwash, I read in Real Simple I think that this Rembrandt version was the most effective. It tastes fine so I’m still using it.
My dentist told me the CVS brand are just as good as the fancy ones so for about $20 I got 14 sets of strips. I used 5 or so the week before our engagement shoot and maybe in two months I’ll use the rest. Nothing crazy. Just helping out how I can.
Yes. I really did ask for eye cream for Christmas. And my mom got me this really nice stuff from Clinique: the Repairwear Laser Focus Wrinkle Correcting Eye Cream. It’s very soothing and I put it on every night. It rubs right in so you can’t see it. I also use their facewash for oily skin. I think this works best on my Clarisonic and it foams up and I feel squeaky clean.
Everyone tells you to put on lotion each night on your face but I’m really scared of breaking out. (Bad skin in high school will do this to you.) I’m trying to get better about using either Cetaphil moisturizer or Clinique’s brand, Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion. Both are very gentle and fairly inexpensive.
I try to drink lots of water, avoid curling my hair too often, put oil on my cuticles and take my vitamins. I’m currently taking Biotin, Omega-3 and Vitamin D. Super easy to take one each day.
