Between having a crazy hectic start to the new year and getting sick, I found myself crawling into bed at night with no desire or energy to take care of my skin.
And while that's totally understandable when you're sick and your world feels up-side-down with general life stuff, I'd be leaving out an important confession: I overcomplicate things.
I tend to be at one extreme or the other - all or nothing- and more often than not that type of mentality sets me up for failure.
Exercise, filming YouTube videos, eating healthy... you name it. I psych myself out and create an expectation list 20 miles long and wonder why everything overwhelms me.
It's something I'm working on in all facets of my life.
So, I realized it was time to drastically scale back my skincare routine to something that's effective and attainable on the days I'm feeling less-than-stellar.
The reality is you don't need a 10-step skincare routine. And you probably don't have time for it either.
