2023 – Time to Start a Routine

I’ve been thinking about this lately . . . what would happen if we committed to a new goal for a whole year? I mean time seems to fly by these days, so a year comes and goes in a blink!
I know I talk about consistent skincare often, but I am talking anything . . .
Eating healthy
Washing your face
Reading books
Drinking water
Getting more sleep
Paying off debt
Getting organized
Journaling every day
Y’all know this already . . . you can’t expect to get results – from anything in life – if you don’t put in the effort.

2023 is just around the corner! Do you have any goals for the New Year? Do you have skincare goals for the New Year? It’s a great time to start, and I promise you won’t regret it.

2023 marks 10 years since I began using Rodan+Fields and started a consistent skincare routine. And I couldn’t be happier!
Is my skin still aging? Of course!
Do I have age spots and sun spots? Yup!
Are some days better than others? Absolutely!
Is my brow still furrowed the way it was the day I was born? Indeed!
Do I still have the “Griffin bags” under my eyes? You bet!
Are some days really bad from allergies? Yeah, in all its glory!

However, my skin is also mostly vibrant, hydrated, firm, and aging more slowly. This photo was taken last month and has not been edited or photo-shopped. I don’t know what it would look like if I had not determined to take extra care of my skin, the largest organ on my body, for the last 10 years. But I think 52 would probably look a bit different than this.

And here’s what I found works best for me: building the best routine for my unique needs and sticking to it! And trust me, I have some unique needs and crazy skin. (This past post has more info about my skincare history.) You have to be consistent and do the work. There is a reason all those pretty bottles come with directions!

So this new year, I encourage you to take a look at your skincare routine.
Do you use clinically proven products from a reputable brand?
Do you use them as directed?
Do you skip days, swap in new finds, and then feel frustrated?
So what if we got over ourselves and just made up our minds to stop wishing and actually do it? What if we DECIDED that our goals and health are important, and we just have to make that decision to go for it? What if we committed fully to JUST DO IT? A year from now we will wish we had started today! Make today count; there will never be an easy time or a better time.
It’s been 5 years since I started selling Rodan + Fields. I am not a pushy consultant, it’s not my style. But I will talk about it if I’m asked. I think it’s important to take care of yourself and take care of your skin! I also know that we often want to look our best for life’s celebrations, and since this is “Celebrations Divine” I enjoy sharing all aspects of that . . . helpful tips and products that I believe in. I’m always happy to answer questions and share my experiences. Email me at ginger@celebrationsdivine.com. And if you want to get all my updates on skincare, you can sign up HERE. (And the best sale of the year is happening through December 29 so reach out soon!)
And if you need an accountability partner for your goals this year (any goal!), I’m in!
Just let me know how I can encourage you!
