Your skin is looking blah! Well really worse than blah, but why point out the obvious?! You need a facial and a body scrub… in short a day at the spa! BUT you have 15 minutes until your carpool picks you up to head to work.

Finding a great exfoliating tool is like finding a needle in a haystack: dry brushes, loofahs, konjac sponges, mesh puffs, nylon puffs, exfoliating creams – the list can go on and on. Viabuff the ultimate exfoliator to the rescue! This dermatologist tested, cruelty free brand was launched so that people of all ages and skin types can finally have an exceptional total body exfoliating experience. The “secret sauce” is it’s material… it’s made from an open-cell polyurethane foam that’s naturally anti fungal, antibacterial and allergen free. This US patent design enables the buff to absorb a way smaller amount of water, compared to anything else you will ever exfoliate with, so that more exfoliating product stays on the surface of the buff resulting in a more thorough exfoliation. Viabuff were formulated specifically to promote speedy air-drying, which reduces the likelihood of bacterial growth on the buffs. Translation: If you happen to be a germaphobe like me… Viabuff thought of everything, designing buffs that are machine washable! You can actually toss your Viabuff into the washer with your whites (no bleach or fabric softener) and let it air dry. And whether you have a normal, very oily or a dry skin type OR are challenged by a skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis or ingrown hairs there’s a buff created to safely and gently address exactly what your face and body is going through. It’s my secret weapon for my skincare clients to use between receiving facials from me to keep their complexions bright and glowing.  It’s also the perfect antidote for anyone who needs a quick skin transformation on a budget!

Love that the lifespan of these exfoliating buffs in infinite because you can launder them w/your whites and allow them to air dry. They’re derm tested, anti fungal, antibacterial and allergen free for an affordable/effective exfoliation of both your face and body.

PRICE: $25 per treatment
Know the chemical exfoliation during our pedicure, nail techs place on the soles of feet to make them baby smooth and we pay an additional $8 to $10 dollars for it? Well have I got something for you to experience at home that kicks it butt & word of mouth has been quickly pushing it towards “beauty icon” level status.

It’s appropriately called “Baby Foot!” This innovative foot care product makes your feet literally baby soft. The award winning formula comprised of 17 types of natural extracts all work together on your feet to exfoliate NATURALLY, leaving them highly moisturized. PLUS it’ll improve other foot problems such as foot odor, athletes foot and blood circulation. So say adios to rough, cracked soles. It’s super easy to use. Place each foot in the treatment pack for one hour then rinse off feet afterward. The actual peeling begins in 5 to 7 days. Baby Foot has been starting to get super popular and gain awareness predominantly because of word of mouth.

This award winning foot treatment infused with 17 Natural ingredients will leave your tootsies baby soft if you have patience and give it 5 to 7 days of peeling post the initial application. When I mentioned this on Facebook my friends all chimed in and said they are obsessed with Babyfoot.

PRICE: $9.99
You have to be at work, at your desk in “30” (as in minutes!) you look in the mirror (It’s 8A) and seemingly overnight your gray roots are popping out all over the place. There’s no time for box color and there certainly is zero time to commandeer your hair stylist for a color appointment. This is a real, true blue or really we should say “gray” beauty emergency!

AGEbeautiful Root Touch-Up temporarily hides the gray strands, but what’s really unique about it is, it doesn’t just conceal gray roots in seconds…BONUS: It adds volume to your roots too!!  The 1 minute mist is super easy to use and delicately covers thinning patches so hair looks naturally full.  Another reason I’ve become such an advocate for the brand, and what separates the men from the boys is: AGEbeautiful Root Touch-Up is water, sweat and stain resistant! I teach hot yoga and there’s nothing more eyebrow raising to a student when they glance over and see my beads of sweat are brown. Yep it’s happened to me before with another brand (sigh). But NOT with Zotos. It allowed me the peace of mind to get through my 86 degree yoga class with total confidence. Another convenient thing worth noting is, although this root touch-up is super sturdy, it washes out with the next shampoo. It’s available in 8 natural looking shades and seamlessly blends with any other hair color brand on the market. Head to Sally’s Beauty Supply to shop the brand and with it coming in at such an affordable price, stash a couple where they will be easy to find and grab: office desk drawer, gym bag, purse or makeup bag

AGEbeautiful Root Touch-Up comes in 8 shades, not only covers your gray hair and roots but also temporarily adds volume to your hair, is waterproof and sweat proof and will wash out in 1 shampoo

PRICE: Varies between brands & products… Here’s 3 of my fave standouts for Lazy Girls…

SHOP: Target stores nationwide through the end of October to save on these 3 brands at “targeted” times throughout the month

Look for savings on popular classic and new products from Neutrogena the week of 10/5/15 and later during the last week of the month with Aveeno only at Target stores nationwide.

If you’re too sleepy to feel like motoring to the bathroom to do your get-ready-for-bed beauty routine, don’t feel guilty just opt for your “Plan B!” It’s called the nightstand.

To help you transition into your Fall lazy girl beauty routine… through the end of October these 3 brands: Neutrogena, Aveeno and RoC teamed up with Target to get your beauty regimen on track and save you a little money in the process. You can find more than 20 new and timeless fan favorites from from the 3 skincare companies available at your local Target – all easy to spot in one place along with special discounts during certain weeks of October.  This week through Sunday, October 11th, the savings is “targeted” at Neutrogena with 5% off things like their Rapid Tone Repair Night Moisturizer loaded with a combo of Vitamin C and Accelerated Retinaol Sa which boosts surface skin cell renewal to brighten skin tone and help reverse the look of even the most stubborn dark spots in just one week. So on your nightstand or even in a little basket underneath, along with the Tone Repair Night Moisturizer, keep a package of soy based makeup removing wipes like Aveeno Positively Radiant Wipes and of course a reliable eye cream, think: RoC Retinol Correxion Eye Cream with their exclusive retinol and essential mineral complex. I always preach with your beauty routine, something is better than nothing, so a modified bedside beauty routine is way better for your wrinkles and skin tone than doing nothing at all.
