Self-Care for Extremely Busy Women

Jan 14, 2020

As we slog through mid-January, it may be time for an energy zap. That’s why I start with one of the self-care essentials from my book, The Extremely Busy Woman’s Guide to Self-Care. That would be Essential #5, Having Great Energy. Here are some ideas about what it really takes to be energized throughout your day. (Hint: Exercise definitely has something to do with it.)

And yet … here’s another self-care matter you may know little about. I know I didn’t have a clue. Mainly, there’s a really good reason why natural organic beauty is so important. Hollywood natural beauty expert Jessa Blades spills the dirt on all the nasty little secrets buried in today’s beauty rituals.

You’ll want to learn about:

  • How regular cosmetics impact the environment
  • What happens why you buy foreign cosmetics
  • Which cosmetics can lead to certain illnesses
  • The best places to buy natural cosmetics
  • The impact of hair color
  • Common beauty mistakes we all make
  • The importance of facials
  • How to heal your skin from the inside out
  • The best ways to remove make up and really take care of your skin

This one’s really informative. Do tune in!
