I have to admit it. I have had a major attitude problem lately and I think I’ve figured out why. As a member of the rough and tough Midwesterner clan, it is just not fair to be subjected to six whole months of winter! I’ve had enough, so I decided to implement a few little tricks to coax in spring, sun, and happiness. It’s something we can all do and let me tell you… it’s working!
One: Sweat every day. Get out there and workout!
Two: Retire the black wardrobe; bright colors will make you smile!
Three: Use MINA Organics locally made products!
Well the first two are probably no surprise, but a nice reminder is usually necessary. The third is a magical discovery I was lucky enough to have made this season. Mina Organics is an awesome local company who is using argan and macadamia-nut oils to create skin care, hair care, and gradual tanning products. (It really is best not to look like we’ve been suffering through months of freezing cold.) Moisturized bronzed skin and shiny static-free hair is only a pump away!
For a healthy glowing tan without the orange hue, lines or spots, try the 3-in-1 Sunless & Bronzing Moisturizer. After just two uses I noticed a gorgeous sun-kissed sheen to my previously dry and less-than-luxurious skin. I love the dual chamber that separates the bronzer and argan oil from the moisturizer, allowing me to mix the two for an even application.
I am all about convenience lately, with a busy travel and gym regimen, so I was ecstatic when I found MINA’s Leave-In Spray Treatment. I take it in the shower with me and spray it on my mid-lengths and ends of my hair for weightless moisture, shine, and anti-frizz. It also helps to protect against split ends and heat damage. I even catch my boyfriend using it to detangle his curls. I’d say we have a winner!
Bonus: These MINA Organics products are color safe and both sulfate and paraben free. Find them on Amazon.
