Dry Skin’s Antidote: The Potion For Soft + Firm Skin

m-61 hydraboost, itsy bitsy indulgences

Ever since having little miss, so many changes have occurred. From the more obvious life changes, to the more subtle… those that I wasn’t really prepared for. What you ask (okay, maybe you aren’t asking, but I’m going to tell you anyway)? Well, as I’ve mentioned before, the hair loss is literally out of control. Like, I seriously can’t believe I still have hair on my head. The texture of my hair has changed… it used to have a nice natural curl… now it resembles something like a lion mane that got into a fight with a blowdryer. Not. Pretty. Another big change I noticed was that my skin was constantly drying out. Prior to Harper’s arrival, my skin never had that problem, and I actually opted for moisturizers that were of a thinner texture, as not to make my skin look oily.

Upon returning from the hospital I noticed my skin was constantly itchy and dry…. and just assumed it was a reaction to the anesthesia. Well, it wasn’t, and when I realized, I began changing out my moisturizers. I recently began using m-16’s Hydraboost Body Butter. It’s paraben-free, fragrance free (something very important to me since I am easily affected by scents), and power packed with peptides, vitamin B5, vitamin E, natural tamarind seed extract, aloe, coconut oil, and shea butter. “So what” you say?? Well… it pretty much makes this little bottle of lotion a 1-2-3 punch of amazingness for my skin. It promotes firming (um, hello post preggo, still nursing, legs), replenishes moisture (good-bye flaky legs and arms), and improves elasticity (my 60 year old self will thank me later for that one). I use it twice daily. Immediately after I get out of the shower (when my pores are open and ready to receive… insert prayer emoji here) and before I go to bed at night. My skin, and myself, have loved it.

I’ve shared a few other favorite products from the line throughout this post, and be sure to follow along on instagram for a giveaway opportunity to win your own m-16 Hydraboost collection (over a $400 value… trust me, so worth it!).

If you’re like me and have minimal time to spend exfoliating your face, these power glow peels are a must! It’s a simple wipe that you move over your face and neck…. pretty much exfoliates in 1 minute. I was super hesitant at first, but after using, became a believer. Hello glow!
