Memorial Day weekend Tan

PR 2013 BEACHI can tell the way the phone calls for appointments stop at my sweet beauty retreat in sunny Florida and the phone rings less that we are coming upon a long holiday weekend.Our mail orders show us that people want all things to tan and give that gorgoeus tan glow.
But BEFORE you get your glow on you need this.

In order for your skin to receive self tanner in spray,powder or lotion you MUST exfoliate your skin both face and body.Say bye bye to dead tired skin and prep the skin for that I escaped to a beautiful island look.

I have many beauty recipes that I whip up from time to time in my recipe box.But this one I received from a friend had a sweet ingredient I have never added to my recipe.The sweet secret is HONEY.

Lemon Honey Sweet Sugar Scrub

1/2 cup of sugar
1/2 cup of sweet almond oil
4 teaspoons lemon juice
4 tablespoons of honey
4 drops of lemon essential oil

First you mix the oil and sugar.
Next add the other ingredients and mix well.
Polish your skin using light pressure for 30-60 seconds.Pay special attention to your knees,elbows and any areas of concern where you have dry skin patches.

Wipe clean with a warm soft washcloth and rinse well.

Your skin will feel AMAZING,soft and silky smooth.
Now, your skin is ready for your self tanner or a base tan. But I professionally recommend NOT baking like a dozen chococolate chip cookies in the sun! Beach,patio or backyard PROTECT your beautiful skin from the harmful sun rays.
A little of the sun’s vitamin D goes a long way,my little cupcakes!

Have a beautiful weekend wherever you live. Celebrate life!

What do your lips say about you?

Lips say so much without saying a word!

Dry, soft, peeling, lined, crusty lips all are signs of something and are a clue to what may be going on with your health too. Keeping your lips healthy requires care on your part too.

Dry Lips may be a sign of weather like being in the hot sun or cold and frigid weather. A job that requires you to work outdoors, from blood pressure medicine or other medications. Or you can simply be thirsty.

Beauty FIX: Applying a lip balm or lip treatment conditioner can make a huge difference and will hydrate them and make them LOOK better too. In order for you to see results, you must do this day and night. Stay hydrated drink plenty of water.

Peeling lips can be caused by the outer elements like the weather. Also todayโ€™s new formula die-hard lipsticks can cause dry peeling, flaky lips.
*If this happens to you switch to another brand lipstick that works better for the skin on your lips. If this continues, stop using the product that dries out your lips. Unfortunately, you cannot always have it all long lasting lipstick and soft lips.

Beauty FIX: Apply a lip exfoliator on your lips. It usually comes in a lipstick tube form or you can try to make your own.

Lined lips can be a sign of a smoker or sunbather. Sometimes it is caused from your outdoor job or your fave sport.
.

Beauty FIX: Use a lip conditioner with vitamin E, C or shea butter to nourish the skin tissue and lines around the lips.
Also, apply moisturizer and or sunscreen on the skin around your lips. Doing this WILL make your skin look and feel better.
Apply a lip balm or lipstick with sunscreen and it will work wonders if you add them to your beauty regime day and night.

Celebrities and models use an old time apothecary secret I know you will love and it is called Rosebud Salve. This rose scented balm in a tin type jar makes your lips beautifully moist and hydrated. It also is great for chapped cheeks and to soften your cuticles.

Here are a couple of quick and cheap recipes you make at home!

D.I.Y Lip Exfoliating Treat:
2 crushed almonds (unsalted)
1 tablespoon of plain dry oatmeal
1/3 to ยผ cup of fresh water

Mix all of the above and make a creamy paste out of it.
Apply on clean lips.
Leave on five to ten minutes.
Rinse well with a lukewarm washcloth

Let your lips air dry and apply your favorite lip balm.
Your lips will love this!

My recipe for a D.I.Y. Lip Scrub

1 soup spoon of brown sugar
1/3 sunflower or almond oil

Mix the two together with a small bowl or mini glass dish.

Apply on clean lips with a babyโ€™s toothbrush.
Rub back and forth gently!
Leave this on for at least five or ten minutes for it to do its magic.
Apply your favorite lip conditioner afterwards.

Pucker up, buttercup! Kissable,healthy looking and hydrated lips in minutes!

Avocado & Hellmann’s Mayo Hair Delight

It is a steamy hot day and today I have declared it a day for my husband and I to have a spa like day!
I made a bodacious big breakfast (for a change), we went for a couples massage as we usually do and now just finished yummy Chinese Take Out too.

As he naps I am putting the finishing touches on the recipe I started this morning in my kitchen.Later we will BOTH enjoy this moisturizing hair treatment.

Here is what you’ll need if you want to make my nutrition filled delight.

1 ripe avocado
1 cup of real MAYONNAISE (I prefer Hellmann’s brand)
2 tablespoons of almond oil

Mix these ingredients together well and make a creamy smooth potion.

I like to wet our hair first and then apply the mask like green goodness and brush through the hair.

Next is really optional but you might really like it. I use a wet hot steamy towel that I have microwaved for a few minutes. Take care and please dont’ make the towel too hot.

Wrap your hair/head with this wet towel like a turban.
Leave the treatment on for 15 minutes if you have more time to spare try 20 minutes.

Rinse,wash your hair with warm water and your fave shampoo and add a lite hair conditioner.
Your tired and dry summer hair will feel amazing tomorrow,scalp hydrated and your hair will be super shiny!

I’d love to hear from you…share with me any recipes you love too!

Day 8 to more beautiful skin!

Your scalp is a part of your skin …it doesn’t just stop at the forehead. The winter weather or extreme heat/tropical climates can make your hair really really dry. Olive oil,almond oil or salon purchase Moroccan oil are all essentials you need to stock up on.

Give yourself a light head massage with a dash of one of these oils on your hands and rub gently on the ends of your hair and on your scalp.A little goes a long way. I like to go to sleep after this and allow the oil to nourish your hair.
Wanna learn more about a head massage? Try an Indian Head massage technique…look it up online and discover what you can do. I do this every week on my hair as well as my husband’s scalp too. He loves it and it really works to improve circulation to the scalp…and offers soothing relaxation.
Hair raising couple fun Or massage for one.
Keep your hair nourished,soft,hydrated and say bye bye dry fly aways!
