There are three items I just can’t live without! These things help me maintain my look-- from nail polish to pants-- and they are always within my reach.

My first item is something I use daily. This may be an odd product but it works very well! If you have ever had ingrown hairs or razor bumps you may want to try Tend Skin. This stuff is a miracle worker. Every morning I have made it a ritual to place some Tend Skin on a cotton ball and rub my bikini area, and voila, all the ingrowns disappear. The best part is you can use it on your legs and underarms, and can share it with your hubby for his problem areas too. I used a lot of products before Tend Skin that my dermatologist recommended and they didn’t work nearly as well. I suggest getting the 16 oz bottle because it makes more economical sense. But, if you are hesitant about the results, get a sample... you will be sold on it!
My nails are always a problem these days. I never have time to get a manicure or give myself one. Because of karate, I ruin my nails easily, so I need a quick classic polish that I can put on before I go somewhere. I finally found one that I can put on right before going out-- literally! Sally Hansen 60 Second Insta-Dri Polish is unbelievable! It actually dries less than 60 seconds! I usually do my hair and makeup, and then put on one coat before I head out. It looks like I just got a manicure, without all the fuss.

Lastly, I love having fold over yoga pants. Yes, I know they aren’t a beauty product, but they do come in handy. Every time I want to run errands in the cold or have things to do before a quick workout, I put on these flattering pants. They look good on everybody and they motivate you to go the gym after you are done running errands. They look better than rolling out of the house with baggy pajama-looking clothing. It’s a polished, clean look that’s easy to throw on. I have 20 pair of fold over yoga pants, and I don’t regret buying any of them. I wear them at some point everyday. I wear them when I’m lounging in front of the TV, going to my boyfriends or heading out to walk my dog.
Every woman needs a piece of clothing, or a beauty product, that she can rely on every single time. These are mine… hope you can benefit from them too!
