Thanksgiving is only a few days away and so I am taking some time to pamper myself and be grateful for me. In a few days, I will break bread with my familia in New York City. I love them dearly but my dynamic family can drive me loca. Hence the need for Sujeiry time.
Today, with the help of CVS and their affordable Divina Latina products, I will beautify myself in preparation for the festivities and my time in NYC. My Dominican family will be checking me out from head to toe. Not to woo me, no. But to make sure that I am eating enough, sleeping enough, and thriving in Los Angeles. I have to get my skin and hair ready to dazzle them with my divina beauty and personality. I have to make sure I am red carpet ready this Thanksgiving. Because my family expects me to be all fancy and Hollywood.
First, I will tackle my hair. Y’all know how much I love my hair, right? I take care of it like a mom nurtures her newborn baby girl. I wash, set and burn up under my old school hair dryer. Right when I am done, I flat iron my hair and add a serum, like TRESemmé Keratin Smooth. The keratin helps eliminate frizz and makes hair shiny and smooth. The formula leaves hair more manageable and helps control frizz for up to 48 hours. My hair is now virgin hair; I stopped dying it five years ago. But the Keratin Infusing Smoothing Serum is also safe to use on color-treated hair.
Before bed, I’ll wash my face with facial wipes. I don’t wash my face with water at night as the water awakens my inner night owl. And at 35 I need my beauty sleep! I also need to moisturize my skin day and night. I’m really not looking forward to wrinkles. So, I’ll apply Pond’s Rejuveness on my face and neck. Ponds Rejuveness Daily Anti-Wrinkle Cream is rich in Vitamin E, antioxidants, Lacto-nutrient complex with AHAS (alpha hydroxyl acids), and collagen. These ingredients nourish the skin and moistures, which is key for the prevention of wrinkles and regenerating healthy skin cells.
How can you be red carpet ready with Divina Latina? These Divina Latina products are available at CVS/pharmacy. We all have a CVS nearby so it won’t be difficult to purchase these products and dazzle just in time for Turkey Day. Also, when you purchase these products you are eligible for ExtraBucks. Every $50 spent on beauty products at CVS/pharmacy gets you $5 ExtraBucks. So, you’re saving and looking divine and fine! Perfect savings for this hectic holiday season. As for me, I am off to start my beautifying process with and become a Divina Latina. The carpet in NYC may be the concrete, and my familia may want to feed me an extra piece of turkey, but I will be red carpet ready every day with TRESemmé and POND’S.
