I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Aveeno. I received product samples to facilitate my review and a promotional item to thank me for participating.
If you’ve been keeping up with me on Facebook, you may already know that I participated in a three-week Aveeno Daily Challenge. The challenge consisted of using Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Lotion, and incorporating one additional healthy habit into my lifestyle. I was actually featured on their Facebook page, which you can see here.
I chose to challenge myself to drink more water throughout the day because I was really lacking in that department. When I was pregnant with Kayleigh, I drank tons of water each day to stay hydrated. I knew it was so important for her, and for myself during that time. After she was born, though, I fell back into the bad habit of not drinking enough water throughout the day. It’s really hard to remember to take care of yourself when you are so busy taking care of your children.
I have had ups and downs with the water challenge. There have been some days when I drank a lot of water throughout the day, and there have been days that I struggled to keep my intake up. I have noticed that on the days I drink plenty of water, I feel a lot better physically and even emotionally. When I don’t drink enough water, I feel lousy, dehydrated, and drained.
I received this really awesome water bottle that I can put fruit in the bottom of, and after a couple of twists and shakes, it will infuse my water with the fruit flavor, but none of the pulp. It is SO COOL! This has definitely helped me to drink more water, as it’s so fun and refreshing to add different flavors. Plain water can get boring some times.
In addition to drinking more water, I’ve been using Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Lotion on my skin. I have always been a huge fan of Aveeno. It’s formulated with ACTIVE NATURALS® Colloidal Oatmeal and blended with rich emollients to soothe and moisturize dry skin. ACTIVE NATURALS® Colloidal Oatmeal is the #1 natural ingredient most trusted and recommended by dermatologists.
When used daily, Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Lotion is clinically proven to improve the health of skin with significant improvement in just 2 weeks! I definitely felt that my skin was much softer and smoother after 2 weeks, and it had a bit of a glow to it, that I had lost over the long winter months.
I love that Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Lotion is non-greasy and fast absorbing. There is nothing worse than rubbing lotion on your skin, only to feel all sticky and gross after. Aveeno Daily Moistuirizing Lotion is also hypoallergenic, fragrance-free and noncomedogenic. This is very important to me because I have very sensitive skin, and I also have a hard time with fragrances.
