How to get Glowing Skin

Let's face it, 2020 has been horrendous.  It has created an if we are just at home, who cares attitude.  Many of us have slacked off on beauty regimens particularly, our skin care routines. I know there are lots of hairy legs, callused feet, and dull, dry faces out there! We have to get back to looking and feeling our best and New Year's is the perfect time to do it. Let's say goodbye and good riddance to 2020 and welcome the new year with positive energy for a healthy, happy year. I for one, want to get my skin back to glowing skin.  It's takes healthy living and TLC to get that elusive JLo glowing skin that I'm so envious of!
