Aarika Lee

AGE: 33

It is hard to imagine where Aarika finds time for everything. She is the Marketing Director and Copywriter at Elementary Co., mother to two lovely children, Zola Mae and Ari Jon and can be found performing at The Mad Men Attic Bar on Tuesday nights alongside her band The Next Movement. Unstoppable and driven, it seems there’s nothing this amazing woman can’t do!

Day 1

Warning: substr() expects parameter 1 to be string, array given in /home/freshsin/public_html/www.followtheglow.com/SG/wp-content/themes/shareit/inc/ab_tf_timeline-def-style.php on line 39

Let’s go #freshglowchallenge!

  1. Soy Face Cleanser
  2. Vitamin Nectar Vibrancy-Boosting Face Mask
  3. Rose Face Mask
  4. Lotus Youth Preserve Face Cream
  5. Peony Brightening UV Shield Sunscreen SPF 50+

Skin today looks pretty good but I’ve got to do something about these eye bags!

Thoughts today – looking forward to pampering myself! Haven’t had much time for that lately.

Day 2

Warning: substr() expects parameter 1 to be string, array given in /home/freshsin/public_html/www.followtheglow.com/SG/wp-content/themes/shareit/inc/ab_tf_timeline-def-style.php on line 39

6am: Starting today really early. That 4-hour sleep is making me want to slather on the Black Tea Instant Perfecting Mask and Peony Brightening UV Shield Sunscreen SPF 50+.

9pm: Kids in bed. Time to mask: Rose Face Mask, Lotus Youth Preserve Face Cream and Seaberry Skin Nutrition Booster. 

Skin today – tired but still okay. Despite the lack of sleep, skin feels supple and healthy.

Thoughts today – thankful for some quiet time this morning.

 

Day 3

Warning: substr() expects parameter 1 to be string, array given in /home/freshsin/public_html/www.followtheglow.com/SG/wp-content/themes/shareit/inc/ab_tf_timeline-def-style.php on line 39
  1. Soy Face Cleanser
  2. Vitamin Nectar Vibrancy-Boosting Face Mask
  3. Rose Face Mask
  4. Peony Brightening UV Shield Sunscreen SPF 50+
  5. Carrying my little bottle of Seaberry Skin Nutrition Booster in my bag today and will attempt to fuel my skin over teatime today.

After work today – cleansed with Soy Face Cleanser. Went to bed with Lotus Youth Preserve Face Cream.

Skin today – starting to look more even. Small pimple coming up on my chin, it doesn’t bother me.

Thoughts today – I’m reminded of when I used to have such horrible acne. I used to try to cleanse it with everything I could get my hands on. In retrospect, a lot of what was manifesting on my skin was a reflection of the stress I was going through. Happy to have left those days behind!

 

Day 4
  1. Black Tea Instant Perfecting Mask
  2. Rose Face Mask
  3. Lotus Youth Preserve Face Cream
  4. Seaberry Skin Nutrition Booster

I think the Lotus Youth Preserve Face Cream is a jar of magic! Noticeable change to the condition of my skin. I used to use the Lotus Youth Preserve Face Cream a couple of years ago but stopped to use the Rose Hydrating Gel Cream – because it’s lighter and generally easier to carry around in its plastic pump bottle. But I think I’m sticking with the Lotus Youth Preserve Face Cream for a while.

What does it mean to glow? It means to be happy. So much of how we feel INSIDE affects how we look on the outside.

Skin today – accidentally fell asleep while putting the kids to bed last night. Got 7 hours of sleep in! #WOW it’s no wonder I actually look RESTED.

Food today – ordered in GORILLA PRESS for a day juice cleanse! Can’t wait!

Breathe

One thing I’ve learned is to listen to what your body tells you, and your skin is no different. Taking a break from too much on my face today and just putting on a little sunblock.

Day 8

Yesterday’s clean face day really helped. Skin looks rested today. Mom reminded me I should be eating better. Easing back into the #FreshGlowChallenge with some Vitamin Nectar Vibrancy-Boosting Face Mask and a citrus salad.

“You are what you eat” should apply to both your body and skin!

Day 9

Need a Vacay!!!

No time and resources but some Rose Face Mask pampering should tide me over for now.

To think that just a couple of years ago, I spent so much time every day trying to cover my skin with makeup. Getting hit with adult acne was the most unexpected and stressful thing that happened to me at a time that I had to be constantly in the public eye.

I tried using so many different products to help alleviate my skin situation but nothing seemed to help. It was only after I decided to take a step back and assess what was happening in my life – as a whole, that I realized that I was carrying a lot of unnecessary stress that was manifesting itself on my skin. It was the first time I truly saw the connection between inner health and outer health.

Today I am equally diligent with my mental, spiritual and emotional health as I am with my physical health.

Skin today: POSITIVE & HAPPY

Products used:

  1. Rose Face Mask
  2. Peony Brightening UV Shield Sunscreen SPF 50+

“The importance of being HAPPY should never be overlooked.”

FRESH TIP

Did you know the Vitamin Nectar Vibrancy-Boosting Face Mask contains more than 50% crushed oranges, lemons and clementines? This gives it the unique citrus jam texture that helps gently refine the appearance of your skin! It is also full of natural citrus fruit extracts to soften, smoothen and improve the clarity of your complexion for a glow that comes from within.

Day 11

The husband offered to take pictures today to help me document the #FreshGlowChallenge

I was just reminding him of my acne days and we both decided clear and healthy skin now at 34 is something worth celebrating.

“GLOW ANYWHERE, and EVERYWHERE.”

“Fruiting up” today! Picked up some gorgeous BANANAS + MANGOES!

I should try to stick to this current beauty regimen. Skin is looking and feeling great!

  • Found some quiet time this morning
  • I love spending time on my mom’s porch
  • Reading + having a little healthy snack
  • Started my day with the Vitamin Nectar Vibrancy-Boosting Mask + Seaberry Skin Nutrition Booster
Day 14

Thankful for so much and celebrating the good things in life with an easy homemade dinner.

The #FreshGlowChallenge definitely took my skin through a DETOX and REJUVENATION cycle!

Going to keep at it to see where it goes. I have never been more confident about going make-up-less!
