New Year, New Me! Alpha Skin Care #alphaskincare @Alpha_SkinCare

I feel like I’m getting a late start into my new year because I’ve been too busy to sit down and think about what a new year means for me. Until yesterday. The kids went back to school yesterday and it gave me a bit of a chance to reflect on the things I want to change and the things I want to start. A new year means I get to start off with a fresh new perspective and reevaluate what is or isn’t important to me.

My skin care is a growing concern for me. These past few years of family loss and stress have aged me. I’m seeing wrinkles by the dozen and my appearance is a big blah. I’ve been asked half a dozen times to be involved in a cooking episode on a couple of TV networks and I keep making excuses. My real excuse is that I’m not looking my best. I need to change that so I can enjoy the things I love like being in the spotlight (lol). My goal for 2017 is to look my best so I can be in front of the camera doing what I do best (think food).

I’ve thought about all of the skin care brands I’ve used in the past and one just keeps sticking out at me; Alpha Skin Care. I trust this brand enough to get me out of my slump and put me in the spotlight because I always received compliments while using it. Why did I quit? I got lazy from my circumstances. I was too tired to exist on most days. To begin with, I was living in a place I loved, and all was well in the world. I was keeping up with my skin care regimen and getting along physically better than I had in years. And then I got neighbors from hell. I don’t know any other way to put it. When they weren’t banging on my door begging for money, which they did no less than 5 to 10 times a day, they were keeping me up all night with shouting, fighting and drunken rages, between themselves. I couldn’t sleep at night. I couldn’t sleep during the day. It was insane. What used to be a good neighborhood to live in turned into an absolute nightmare of a place and I got away from there as fast as I could.

I’ve finally got the last of my boxes unpacked and life is returning to normal. That means I have time to pamper myself like I should. Anyone over the age of ** needs to pamper themselves when it comes to skin care. The first thing I noticed when deciding what products to start my new year off with is that Alpha Hydrox Skin Care has rebranded and are now Alpha Skin Care. So, if you decide to make the commitment with me to look your best in 2017, be sure to note the new name change. Same great products of course and at a great price. All items are under $20 which is one of the reasons I kept coming back to this brand when trying to decide on my choice for 2017. They’re affordable. I’ve tried pricey skin care products that didn’t work any better than this brand so I feel like I’m being smart and sensible using their products.

I received five new products from Alpha Skin Care for review purposes. Today will be the first day I use them and I’m looking forward to the same results I had with the products in the past. I hope you’ll join me on my skin care journey by creating your own skincare journey. Before long I hope to be front and center on ABC and Fox interviewing my favorite chefs and sharing my favorite recipes. If I trust Alpha Skin Care to achieve that goal, shouldn’t you? Be sure to sign up for my newsletter so you can stay informed about how these products are working and to see which ones I’ll stick with throughout the year. I will give my opinion on each of the products in an upcoming post. Several of these will be a first for me so I’m doubly excited about getting started. Because I’m the impatient sort, I don’t want to wait any longer. I’m going to take my exit to try the products and I’ll keep you informed.

If you decide to make your skin care routine a priority as I have, Alpha Skin Care has graciously given me a code to share with you for 25% off your total purchase. How cool is that? Just use promo code ALPHA17 when you check out. No minimum purchase required! Shipping for purchases over $25 is free! *exp: March 31st.

    I totally understand the neighbor situation; I have a few when I lived in a duplex that left me pulling my hair and wanting to move asap.
    I too have taken a vow to take better care of myself in 2017. Beginning with eating better, moving more, and taking better care of me in general.
    Good luck in 2017!

    I haven’t had a chance to really reflect on what goals I want to achieve in 2017. I know that I want to continue my weight loss journey that I put on hold for about 4 months due to things happening in my world. Then we moved over New Year’s weekend. I am turning 40 this year and I really need to start considering skincare solutions. I get adult acne and got some medicine from my doctor to treat that. Now I need to focus on correcting my fine lines and dryish/oily skin.

    Alpha Skin Care products sound really nice. I’ve been looking for something to help my skin more than what I’m currently using.
