Sometimes, You Just Need a Little Clarifying…Mask

Do you ever find that you’re so busy with….stuff, that you forget to take care of yourself?

Well, this year, I’ve been making a concerted effort to make some “me” time.

Even if it’s just 5 to 15 minutes to stop and breathe and attempt to meditate (because I’m still trying my best to let the thoughts pass without judgment) or a 30 minute workout. Or making sure that I up my protein and veggie intake.

Or, as I mentioned in yesterday’s post, lower my wine intake. (insert sad, sober face) (you can picture it, can’t you?)

But the truth is, most days I look a hot mess. Since I’ve been working from home, I don’t exactly have to glam it up every day. I’ve actually taken it in the complete and horrifying opposite direction. The only time I let my hair down lately is when my head hurts from having it up so much.

Really, the only time I make any kind of effort is when I have to put on pants to go pick up my kids at school — because I think there a laws about that.

And I throw on a hat in the hopes it distracts from the fact that my hair’s a mess. And probably dirty. And that I don’t have a stitch of makeup on.

So, today, I decided to do a little something for myself, even if just a clay mask. But, of course, as soon as the minions saw me preparing to put it on (because they had barged into the bathroom as they normally do every.single.time I’m in there) they had to do it, too.

If nothing else, my pores better freaking be clear.
