New Year, New Skincare Routines!

Updated: Jul 14



A new year always brings a lot of new year resolutions from people, most don't stick with them because it is usually a long list of things that a person "thinks" they should do. I prefer to step back and take a look at how my previous year went and how I would like for my next year to go. What can I do to adjust my way of thinking and what plans can I put into motion to make my plans for my new year happen? I think a lot of people try to make too many changes or unrealistic changes.

This year I would like to take better care of myself, both mentally and physically. I do not mean that I am going to join a gym that I will never go to but I am not getting any younger... I need to start taking care of my skin and mental health. I have let my stress level elevate very high over the past few years, a lot of it has not been in my control but I need to find a way to wrangle it in.

I am starting with my skin! I have been using Monat's skincare line and it has been amazing! For the past several years I have been getting dry patches on my face, I never used to have dry skin!

Monat products offer the most advanced approach to anti-aging skincare available today!

Natural Fruit Acids (AHAs): Superfruit AHAs from sugarcane, mango, banana, and Caja help to energize, brighten, and refine skin. This blend of glycolic, malic, citric, mandelic, and tartaric acids, helps to support healthy-looking skin.


Plant Stem Cells: These regenerating Phyto-elements extracted from moss help lift, tighten, support collagen, and defend skin by providing antioxidant protection to guard against oxidative stress caused by the sun and other environmental elements. This powerhouse ingredient offers a full spectrum of benefits for luminous, youthful, healthy-looking skin.


Monat Exclusive Peptide: Known for its skin rejuvenation ability, this bio-active building block helps support skin's natural collagen to reveal tighter skin, improved texture, and an overall ageless appearance. Helps skin to appear more cushiony, plump, supple, and youthful from within.


Kakadu Plum: Another Monat exclusive helps to brighten the complexion, reduce the look of hyperpigmentation, and protect the skin from harsh environmental aggressions.
