If you follow along on Instagram, you may have seen that I've been doing the Tone It Up Bikini Series workouts, which I have loved! I needed to mix it up a little and was weary of deadlifts and squats, so mixing in the TIU workouts has been great! I have to say though, that fitting in workout time in addition to two jobs and a wife + mama gig is a lot. So whenever I have 15 minutes or so during my day, I'll often do a strength workout - abs, arms, etc. The Mermaid Workout is one of my faves! If I don't have time for a full-on shower, I spend just a few minutes freshening myself up before heading out the door. This is also a great way to freshen up after a jog or hike when you have errands to run. I keep all these oils in my purse for just that reason! Here is my one-minute jog to java facial:
Step 1: Place a drop of peppermint oil on a cool, damp rag, and place the rag over your entire face. Leave on for about 20 seconds to support the respiratory system, pull oil from your pores, and bring cool relief to your skin.
Step 2: Place a drop of tea tree oil onto a cotton ball and swipe across the forehead, bridge of the nose and/or any other areas on the face that feel oily.
Step 3: Place a drop of joy, stress away, peace & calming, or other desired oil behind the ears and onto the wrists for a quick + natural perfume! I like to keep a roller top on my bottle of joy and on my bottle of stress away for just this reason. Plus, you get the added mental and emotional benefits of inhaling the oils!
Step 4: Hit the door!
