Spa Day with Influenster, Birch, and Ipsy

Taking the time to look your best can influence how you function. Loving how you look is a major confidence booster that can impact your mood in such a positive way that you find you are more social and more productive.  After returning from long journeys, I like to unwind and reinvigorate myself by having a little at home spa day.

My skin has been going haywire this year with all the nonstop traveling and acne has hit me like a teenager on prom night. I'm really looking for products to help clear up the acne and skin discolorations that resulted from it. Luckily, I have some great products that were sent to me to sample and I want to share them with you.



Today I am using the products that I was sent to sample in my Influenster Viva VoxBox along with products from my April Birch box and May Ipsy bag. I hope these tips help you as you work to find new things to try. I'd love to learn what works for you too! :)

Part of my time will be spent analyzing the local market, nailing down the specifics of the poultry demand. Additionally, I will be visiting buyers and negotiating contracts for the farmers, ensuring the customer base and cutting out the middle men. The rest of my time will be spent providing training to the farmers helping them become better suited to meet the market's demand.

They have challenged their oppression and marginalization, all while observing their culture being absorbed into mainstream Latin American life, many times without proper credit to it’s true origins.
