Last year I bought my husband a variety of small herb plants and an ivy and placed them in plant pots.  He works on the computer hours at a time. He also likes to cook when he is in the mood. So, my ploy to get him in the kitchen worked for me all year.He not only made us some spa water with fresh rosemary and lemons. He also uses the basil with Italian dishes and pretends be talian. The plants have grown into these eco healthy plants that purify the air from bad things that get in our home and keeps him healthy from all that computer blue light and what rays our tech tools give off.

Bonus they are so beautiful to look at and aromatic too.

So, I highly recommmend if you have’t purchashed a gift for him yet…

Give him a few plants in a beautiful basket,wrap in a cookbook and a small kitchen utensil and spoon or whisk…

My Aloe Beauty Hack!

IMG_2916.JPG

I love growing aloe plants and have them in my home in my kitchen,my bathroom and outside my front door. I also grow them in my beauty studio garden. Lately, I am showing my clients how to rescue a sunburn with a fresh aloe plant or store bought bottle of aloe vera gel.

But my favorite aloe skin care hack is to use the juicy love goodness from the inside of the aloe leaf! All you do is cut a small slit on the side of the leave and squeeze…apply on clean skin. It is great to use a plant based oil free moisturizer and can be used UNDER makeup or alone on the face.

In an instant! And so cheap! 

If  YOU have a skin care hack you’d like to share with me…Please do!  I LOVE hearing from you and I will reply.

SUNBURN!

aloe ice trayOuch!

This Memorial day holiday weekend I saw lot of LOBSTER looking girls,guys and unfortunately kids. Here are some quick skin fixes for sunburn.

Keep an aloe plant in your kitchen.It offers a quick and soothing rescue for your skin. I also like to fill a tray with aloe ver gel and freeze. Take an ice cube and warm in your hand a few seconds,roll gently on the skin where you have a burn or skin irritation.Or you can try Lily of the Desert aloe vera recovery gelly and apply. Both have anti-inflammatory  effects and sooth the skin too.Similasan Burn recovery is also another soothing choice. Found at Whole Foods market.

Alba Botanica Burn relief spray or try a cooling bath in oatmeal flakes. Aura Cacia has an awesome soothing chamomile and oats body soak.Relieves itching,burning feel and the not s pretty skin,peeling and flaking you get after a burn.

Take a cool water bath with fresh edible flowers…drink a glass of water with an edible flower too and enjoy a pretty looking bath too!

Hydrate your skin with cocoa butter,shea butter or any skin softening lotion or cream.

Cold cucumbers grated  and applied in cheesecloth on your face or eye slices are a refreshing and cool skin and eye treat. Did you know your eyes can get sunburned too?

*Stay away from …salt,nut or sugar scrubs at this time.They are too harsh for your red raw skin.

Doctors recommend taking an over the counter pain reliever such as Ibuprophen or Naproxen for pain relief and inflammation.

Taking a vitamin E supplement is a good idea too.Helps to heal skin faster too.

Coconut water is a way you can hydrate from within.Your skin and body are thirsty and dehydrated from the outdoors and the hot sun.

Hope these ideas help you and come to your rescue.

WANT BEAUTIFUL Looking Eyes?

photo GREEN TEA EYES

It was a crazy busy week last week and now it is pouring into this week too. I feel tired and feel like I look it.

I discovered these green tea gems recently and felt now is the time to give them a test drive!!!

The company says these eye pads will lift,brighten,de-puff and moisturize.

They contain micro-infused collagen gel pads with aloe,vitamins C & E,amino acids,antioxidant rich green tea extract and energzing taurine… they are Paraben-free,cruelty free. I’ll bet that you ladies with allergies would love them too.

They call it the energy drink for your face!!! Celebrities love it.

TONIGHT is the night I hope my skin will drink it up…I have my beauty and lifestyle segment on TV tomorrow.

Wish me luck!
