Since I’ve been running and working out a ton in preparation for my Toronto Nike Women’s 15K race (check it out via Instagram @lexniko), I have been obsessed with my Simple Skincare products. From the cleansing micellar water to the facial wipes, these gentle products have been saving my skin from make-up, sweat and everything in between.
I love how pure these products are and the brand has inspired me to share my 5 Favorite Ways to Keep It Simple. From day-to-day to my beauty and style regime, here are a few of my simple tips.
1. I make my bed every day.
I know this may seem like a strange simplicity, but there is nothing sweeter than coming home after a long day (or night out) and getting in to a freshly made bed.
2. When in a styling dilemma I always reach for a black blazer with slouchy sleeves.
Have you ever had those nights where you hate everything in your closet? You’re going to be late for a dinner date or work meeting and can’t find anything to wear. Throwing on a slouchy black blazer over jeans and a t-shirt or a little black dress adds an simple edge to an otherwise easy look that’s always a hit.
3. Always wash your face before you work out.
I am guilty of not always following this one, which is why lately I’ve loved Simple Skincare’s Facial Wipes. There is nothing worse than makeup seeping in to your skin when you sweat, which is why I fully encourage you stocking your gym bag with the proper skincare regime.
4. Find the perfect white buttondown.
The best item you can have in your closet is a white buttondown. I love this one here. It is the perfect item to style from day-to-night and is easy to style with multiple bottoms when you travel.
5. Kiss my pup every darn day, tell my parents I love them and pray.
Ok, ok, I know there are a few tidbits in one bullet but these are my after-work/nightly routines that just make going to bed feel great. I love my pup and I love my family and I think they all deserve to hear how special they are every day. I read daily devotionals and prayer each morning and night and I just think it’s an incredible way to set the tone for the day and thank the Lord for all of my blessing every night.
What are your favorite ways to keep it simple? I’d love to hear!
