New Releases: It Cosmetics

It Cosmetics recently release two new products into their amazing product line! I was able to test them both out during an event where I got the #Superhero treatment (wink wink). The results are in: BUY NOW!! I have dry to normal skin and It’s first release, Confidence in a Cream, is the perfect product to give your skin that needed balance. Formulated with anti-aging armor to rejuvenate skin, this cream will give you that intense hydration and smooth texture we all desire. The second product they released in the Superhero Elastic Stretch Volumizing  Mascara. During the event everyone wore one eye with mascara and one without and the difference was mind-blowing. Did I mention that all you need is one coat? The propriety Elastic Stretch Technology wraps each individual in a volume-boosting, lengthening and ultra-conditioning black cape of power and color, for your longest, thickest, and most defined lashes. Check out more on these two products below! Screen Shot 2016-01-30 at 1.05.35 PM

Feel The Hydration with Burt’s Bees

Hydration is key to maintaining healthy, plump skin. Think about it this way – a desert is an area that lacks hydration which causes the land to become dry and eventually crack. Think of your skin as a piece of land. If there is no source of hydration your skin will eventually dry under harsh conditions such as weather change. When this happens your skin will begin to dry and form wrinkles. Here’s how you can feel the hydration!

Burt’s Bees Intense Hydration Mask: Infused with Clary Sage, Burt’s Bees Intense Hydration Treatment Mask instantly quenches parched skin.

2.       Women’s Biggest Woes: Between family, friends and work, women juggle a lot, which means there’s a lot weighing on their mind.  In 2015, health care (29%) continues to be a top concern among women, followed by worries over racial tension (20%) and job security (15%).

Alejandro Chaban’s 5 Ways to Overcome Gymtimidation

1) Problem: LACK OF KNOWLEDGE: You’re there and you have no idea how to use the machines or all of those weird balls. The only thing you see is all those expert people jumping from one machine to the next and you just stare at them with a confused look on your face without knowing where to start.
SOLUTION: Invest in one session with a personal trainer that can show you how to use the machines work and design a specific routine for you. Another option that’s cheaper is to go on You Tube and look for different video tutorials that show you how to work every muscle and even learn fun cardio routines to practice at home.

2) Problem: COMPETITION: Getting to the gym the first few days and looking at the girl next to you and wanting to compete with her is a VERY bad idea. The only thing you’re going to do with this is feel bad if you can’t keep up with her.
SOLUTION: Don’t compare yourself to anybody. Your only competition is yourself. You don’t know the other girl’s story, what drives her and how long she’s been doing this.

3) Problem: PUBLISH YOUR TRAINING: When we’re first starting we want EVERYONE to know what we’re doing and we share it on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and every other way we can think of. This causes us to spend more time on our phones than actually working out.
SOLUTION: Leave your phone in the locker or use it only to listen to music. Stop telling the world you’re going to work out and just WORK OUT! I’m guilty of taking a few selfies here and there but I try not to and always tell myself FOCUS ALEJANDRO! At the end of the day if you don’t work out you won’t have any results to share.

4) Problem: WRONG CLOTHES: This doesn’t mean that you should get the most expensive and trendy clothes for the gym, it’s about having the right underwear, pants, shoes and socks. This is important for you to feel comfortable, confident and to avoid injuries. I used to go to the gym with those huge heavy cotton shirts that were always 3 sizes bigger, when I saw myself in the mirror I got even more depressed and lost all my motivation. WATCH IT! It’s not about being naked in public LOL.

5) Problem: SIMPLICITY: When you go to the gym try to take as less things as possible, I used to take a padlock, water, my phone, an ipod, a bag, towels, mi protein shake my wallet, a book and 40 different things. This just made me lose my focus and I always ended up losing stuff.
SOLUTION: Try to take as little as possible and leave everything in the locker.
