the essentials : Lindsay from Delighted Momma

I love when people leave comments (who doesn't, right? ;) on my blog because it's a great way for me to find their blog when I most likely wouldn't have otherwise. Lindsay was one of those awesome bloggers who left a comment and I'm glad she did. She has a great blog full of recipes, thrifted finds (and tips), and every day lovelyness. I was excited to learn that we share something in common, we are both estheticians! Please leave her some love and go visit her blog!

Hello olive & a readers!

My name is Lindsay from Delighted Momma. I am SO excited to be here today while Heather is away on vacation. Lucky ducky!! Today I am going to share with you my top three beauty essentials.

#1. Moisturizer WITH sunscreen

As a licensed esthetician I can not tell you enough how important this is. In fact, if I could only bring one beauty product to a deserted island this would be it. Not only are you protecting your skin but you are warding off future effects of permanent sun damage and aging. My all time favorite product is DeVita Solar Protective Moisturizer with SPF 30. It is feather light and never leaves my skin feeling greasy or oily. It also wears great under my makeup. BIG plus.

#2. Lip Balm

I never leave the house without a good lip balm. If you were to take a peak into my purse you would find at least 4 floating around. My FAVORITE is Eco Lips Pure & Simple Coconut. Mmmm! It is all natural and smells like a coconut smoothie! They say lip balm is addicting...not sure if this is true, but I do know that I cant live without it!

# 3. Limiting stress, getting plenty of sleep and staying hydrated

Even though I cheated and listed three, I think they are all equally important. Reducing stress as much as you can, getting your beauty rest and drinking plenty of water are imperative not only for personal well being, but also for your skin. Making small positive changes in your lifestyle will make you feel better inside and out!

Hope you all have a wonderful day!

I love when two of my favorite blogs come together!

I'm proud to say that I regularly use a good face lotion. I'm ashamed to say that it doesn't have an SPF (you'd think that they all would by now!) I'm going to make that my priority next time I buy a new bottle. :)

I definitely need that moisturizer with lotion. I have tried several (and am currently using one I don't love), but always feel like they're too heavy. It sounds just perfect!

Chapstick is definitely one of the essentials I never leave home without (it's hard since it's in my purse, car, husband's pocket, makeup bag... you get the idea)

Just found your blog & love it. Hope you're having a great vacation!

This is such a great post Lindsay!!! That lip balm sounds amazing - I love the smell of coconut! And your third tip is my favorite - it gives me even more of an excuse to lay in bed a few more hours every morning :)

Thanks Olive & A! Have a great vacation!

Glad to see I'm doing some things right! I am a moisturizer addict, and a sleep lover! Although I trade out chapstick/balm for a mini sized Vaseline jar w/ diamonds on it.

Hey, I just have to be true to myself.

I'm a chapstick addict and am always on the lookout for new brands to try! That tea is sitting in my cabinet as we speak, love it! Thanks Lindsay, always full of good tips!
