The Secrets Behind Flawless Beauty

Everyone has insecurities. There always seems to be someone better. Someone with better hair, with a better smile, with a better voice or body. Comparing yourself won’t help. The only thing you will achieve by comparing yourself to others is a bruised ego. It can be particularly hard, however, when you are a new mother. The worst comparison you can make is not with someone else – it’s with how you used to be. Here’s the secret though: the secret behind flawless beauty isn’t found in a makeup bottle, it’s found in health.

To Start: A Healthy Diet

A healthy, balanced diet isn’t just great for your child’s development – it’s good for your health, too. Eating healthy means that you will benefit from the inside to the outside. When you want to get back to your old, seemingly flawless self before you had your kid, you should start with what you eat and drink. Here’s what different kinds of foods affect you:


Water is the most obvious, but also often overlooked drink. Drinking enough water in the day can promote good health. Your brain and body are made up mostly of water. Staying hydrated means having more energy and can relieve fatigue. Drinking a big glass of water in the morning can be just as effective as coffee. Drinking water promotes weight loss by aiding digestion and helping you feel full, it flushes out the toxins and imbalances in your system, boosts your immune system, and more. Water is essential to life, so cut out the sugary drinks and opt for water instead. Your health, looks, and wallet will thank you!

Cut Out Processed Foods

You don’t need to go so far as to go vegetarian or vegan to enjoy the health benefits of natural food. Processed foods include things like potato chips, or even aerosol cheese. Stick to the real deal when it comes to food so that you can enjoy the nutrient boost. You and your children’s health (and development) will thank you for it.

Aim for a Balanced Diet

The best place to get your vitamins and nutrients that help you focus, feel good, and live better is from food. Aim for each meal to be balanced. It will take some time and effort to get into the habit of eating what you should, but it’s best for everyone in your family.

A bonus tip: teach your children how to cook and eat healthy from a young age. Teaching them this life skill will help them once they have moved out and are living on their own for the first time. 

Get your Gut Healthy

Our food has changed so much and our guts are in over drive trying to work correctly.   Make sure you are taking a good probiotic and focussing on good stuff for your gut.   Plexus has so many great products to take that will help so many ailments.   Consider their Tri-Plex to get your gut healthy.  

Second: Better Daily Habits

Your daily habits may not seem to do a lot when you only do them once. Instead, try to get into good habits and encourage your children to do so, too. The basics include washing and brushing your teeth twice a day. You can, however, go further and include exercise, hobbies, and other beneficial habits that will carry on in both your life and theirs. For beauty, complete these daily rituals:

Clear Skin

Clear, healthy skin is beautiful, because it shows signs of health and vitality that acne-ridden skin and haggard skin don’t have. Your skin is, however, very versatile, and can bounce back within reason. There are many tips and tricks that you can use for clear, healthy skin, but what it boils down to is your lifestyle, needs, and preferences. Typically, however, you should at least wash your face before going to sleep.

Moisturizing is also a great way to keep your skin hydrated, supple, and prevent aging lines. There are many kinds of moisturizer out there, depending on your skin type and needs. During the day, for instance, use a moisturizer that contains 30SPF (or just sunscreen). The sun causes damage to your skin over time, and the simple act of using SPF can help your skin’s natural healing process work its magic.

Healthy Hair

Here’s a secret you might not know about: washing your hair every day is incredibly bad for you. Washing your hair every day strips it of its natural oils, making it more brittle and prone to breaking. It dries out your scalp, too, which can cause flaking and dandruff to appear. Wash your hair every other day, or wait longer between washing your hair, and you’ll find that your hair will naturally be less oily over time.

Tip: You can still shower every day, if that is what you want. Just skip out on the shampoo!

Daily Exercises

A little bit of exercise can go a long way. For you as a mom, it can mean you can feel good and like the way you look. All you need is fifteen minutes every day to do toning exercises. The buildup of your workout will give you results that you can be proud of. Couple these strength exercises with cardio – walk with your kids to the store, around your neighborhood, or elsewhere. Keep your kids and yourself active for healthy bodies.

Finally: Go to Professionals

Not all concerns can be fixed by yourself. You can have acne and poor skin because of a hormone imbalance, meaning that no matter how often you wash your face, you will still get breakouts. When this happens, it is time to go to your doctor. Similarly, your teeth and dental hygiene can also require a professional, especially after pregnancy. When you want your teeth straightened, or, even, whitened, you will need cosmetic dentists to help you get the beautiful smile of your dreams. Not every problem can be solved by yourself, but that’s why professionals are there to help you.

Your beauty is your health. When you are healthy, and have good, healthy habits, you become your best you. You don’t need to look like the women on magazines to be beautiful – you just need to be your healthiest, happiest self. Feel good and look great by focusing on your habits and diet instead of makeup and other cheap tricks.

Liquid Chalk spray! Chalk Idea #7

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun!

Toddler Rainbow Craft for St. Patricks Day

St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly.  I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos.  Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you.   This was a super easy one for those little hands.  I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting.  The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper.  EASY, but they enjoyed it!  :)  It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge!  :)   I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!
