NEW YEAR, NEW YOU: TATA HARPER GIVEAWAY

One of my goals for 2014 is to start a skincare routine, but more importantly to use all natural products. The second I turned 25; I started noticing wrinkles on my forehead, around my eyes, and mouth. I know you might laugh but it seriously was the instant I looked in the mirror on my 25th birthday.  At that moment I realized how important a regular beauty routine really is for your skin’s health. Honestly, until now I have never taken wonderful care of my skin and face. I have been blessed with a pretty clear face my entire life so using soap and store brand face lotion tended to be my daily routine.  When I realized that these products were just not cutting it anymore (my face started to peel and those ugly lines started to show), my mom suggested I find a skincare line that will help nourish my dry skin.  After reading a ton of articles and reviews on different skincare lines, I found Tata Harper.

I wish I had started using these products 10 years ago, because as Tata says, “it is never to early to start focusing on your skin’s health”.  Being from Columbia, skincare was always important to Tata. When she was old enough and could not find any products that were 100% natural she decided to create her own. In order to learn more about the 100% natural skincare line, I was fortunate to speak with someone on Tata’s staff.  Clare answered all of my questions about the benefits of using an all-natural skincare regimen.  It was astonishing how much I did not know about the importance of skincare and skin health.

Being somewhat of a health freak, I really limit the amount of medicine and chemicals that go into my body (another one of my goals this year is to eat CLEAN), so why would I allow those chemicals to be soaking into my skin everyday? Most (a scary number of) drug store and department store beauty brands contain fillers. If you don’t know what filler is, it is a useless ingredient that either makes a product creamy, smell better, or contains preservatives to increase the life of the product.  GUYS, FILLERS ARE SO BAD! Tata’s philosophy is to use the least amount of fillers as possible, so only the most potent and active ingredients (between 9 and 29) are used on your skin.  They also make all of their products at their beautiful Vermont laboratory; someday I hope I can go visit this marvelous place.  Tata is completely hands on when it comes to creating, researching, and producing her products.

So here it is, for you guys to start the new year off on the right track Tata Harper is offering one LUCKY reader their Winter Moisturizing Essentials set.  These five daily essentials will keep your skin looking silky smooth and moisturized during these long winter days (especially this extreme cold that I know most of you are experiencing).

Step 1: Refreshing Cleanser: This product cleanses, exfoliates and moisturizes the skin while leaving it soft with no film layer like most normal soaps do. I am a huge fan of the smell of this cleanser which is made from the essential oils that are created at the Tata Laboratory in Vermont.

Step 2: Reparative Moisturizer *my favorite product*: use two pumps over your face and neck to keep your skin hydrated all day and night. Made with 28 natural humectants, it hydrates your skin without using any fillers.

Step 3: Replenishing Nutrient Complex: Perfect for blemishes, red spots, and those unwanted little lines (we all have them). This multivitamin is a weightless serum that protects the skin from the everyday environmental wear and tear and boots the skins renewal process at night.

Step 4: Be Fierce: Talk about hydration, this lip treatment hydrates and nourishes lips all day b using Green Tea and Acai Oils. It is perfect for those super cold, dry days.

Step 5: Revitalizing Body Oil: This anti-aging treatment delivers complete rejuvenation to the entire body making it look smoother and visibly healthier.  Don’t forget your hands! This is a great product to keep your hands looking young and wrinkle- free.

NEW YEAR, NEW YOU

NEWYEARNEWYOU

There is something about starting a new year on the first day of the week. Since January 1st fell on a Wednesday this year, it not only gave me a few extra days of vacation, but it allowed me to have a few extra days to get all of my goals together to start fresh on Monday. With the New Year comes, the ever so popular resolutions. For me I try not to make resolutions but little lifestyle changes instead.  I am focusing on making a few changes this year in particular like working out everyday, changing my diet and eating clean (not really to lose weight but to make myself feel better), and starting a skincare routine. So, this year I thought it would be so fun to include YOU all in my goals for the new year.

I have been working with some amazing brands that will help kick off your New Year in the right direction.  There are a few products that I know will make a difference in changing my daily routine. So starting tomorrow, I will be giving away products from all of the companies that are helping me reach my goals and hopefully will help you too!

Stay tuned until tomorrow morning, because you are not going to want to miss this!
