New Beginnings Means New Routines

In March, my husband and I packed all of our stuff from our cozy home in Chicago and moved to Washington DC (I documented the move in this story) to start a new journey. This new beginning has been a huge transition in our lives but mostly mine...uprooting my entire life to a new place where I have little to no family or friends has been really difficult for me. The luckiest piece of it all is that I am not alone and I have my partner in crime to help me deal with my moments when I miss Chicago or when I am so confused why DC is sooooo different from the windy city.
But the emotional piece is just one of many factors in this new beginning. Getting used to new routines such as commuting to work, getting to know my neighborhood, where to go shopping for daily items, is a huge factor. The biggest curve ball I received from this move so far has been a change in my skin due to the change of climate environment. See my skin was used to the super humid summers of Chicago and dry cold winters (for almost 21 years) but it was not used to 100% humid days with temp records of above 100F for multiple days/weeks. That caused my skin to react and show signs of eczema and it was on my face, the number one spot where all women don't want to have skin issues!
I immediately started to do my research on how I could eliminate this pesky little problem. In all of my searches, Aveeno was the number recommended on most dermatologist websites as the best over-the-counter product for eczema. I hurried to my closest drug store and purchased Aveeno Baby - Eczema Therapy Moisturizing Cream and Moisturizing Wash. In a matter of two days, the scaly skin on my face from the eczema went away - that truly was #BellezaEspontanea. My eczema has been controlled and now I can walk around DC and travel the world without having to worry about itchy, flaky skin on my face.
Since then, I have started to use many of their other products! I recently received a beautiful package from Aveeno which included the Aveeno Yogurt Lotion and Body Wash. I love these two products so much. Aveeno only uses natural ingredients such as yogurt, apricots, vanilla, honey and colloidal oat which helps make my skin feel nourished and smooth - especially as I get accustomed to these new seasons and temperatures in Washington D.C.
