2019 is officially here, can it be real? I spent the first week of the new year recovering from a pretty gnarly cold that knocked my voice out for four full days. Not the most inspiring start to a new year, but it did afford me plenty of time for reflection and only a little self-wallowing. ;)
My mom has been around for the holiday break which is always so fun. We get to share ideas, stories, dreams, and adventures. We’ll often share our favorite products that have made an impact on our day-to-day lives. You know when you find something so good, you want everyone to know so they can benefit too? I figured you might also want to know!
I’m always listening to new music for yoga playlists between commuting for classes. Whether you’re listening to music, podcasts, or audiobooks your media will pause if you take out one bud, no more missed moments. You can change the settings for other functionality as well. I like to double tap my left earbud to skip a song.
As someone who loves to be active, the Airpods have been an absolute game changer. They stay put during workouts! I can even wear these during a home yoga practice whether I’m practicing on my own or using Glo for a led practice with my favorite teachers.
This Post-Sweat Clearing Mask has been a skincare godsend. While yoga will always be my first (active) love, high-intensity workouts really make me powerful AND sweaty. You can find me in any number of workout classes or gym workouts throughout the week and this Detox Me face mask has helped my skin so much. I would often get regular breakouts and spots on my face from not cleansing deeply enough. Since I began using this product, gone are those frustrating spots. My skin feels so smooth and maintains a healthy glow. The scrub itself is gentle enough for daily use and smells incredible, a blend of vanilla with citrus. I stash this in my gym bag and bust it out post workout whenever, and wherever. If you use the link above, you can save 15% too. If you prefer, use code at checkout: YBYPAIGE will do the trick as well.
Many of you shared your favorite products with me on the gram which I’m still in testing phase. Please keep your recommendations coming so I can share an updated recap!
While we’re on the subject of skincare, I began using Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides in August after receiving a free sample while attending Wanderlust (seriously the swag is impressive at their events). I was hearing about collagen left and right and chalked it up to being another fad that would soon fade. I told myself, I’d try it daily for one month to see if I noticed any differences. One month later my skin was glowing. I’ve been pretty lucky and have had decently good skin but have noticed general dullness and a few more fine lines creeping in than I’d care to admit. You guys, this stuff works. Do yourself a favor, buy the tub and try it out for one month.
I prefer adding the collagen to my coffee in the morning, it mixes right in with little to no taste. It’s become part of my routine and strangers have been asking me what I do for my skin. As if you need another reason to try, but what really keeps me coming back is that my muscle recovery has improved, my joints don’t feel quite as achey post workout. I highly recommend to any athlete or workout enthusiast.
I’d love to hear about your daily routine must-haves. Drop yours in the comments below and let me know if you’re planning on trying out any of the products above.
