Beet it!

I love make-up & fresh squeezed juice. So many benefits from it! Did you know since ancient times people dried beets and used it for making lipstick?

Recently someone asked me what do I do if I ever forgot my lipstick at home? Here is my answer to think quick on your feet and on the go One day I was meeting someone for an important meeting and forgot my lipstick ๐Ÿ’„ tube. I have a studio and warehouse filled with lipsticks and no lipstick on me. That was crazy! Since they were meeting me for coffee and I was early I decided to treat myself to a lite lunch. So, I ordered a fresh salad ๐Ÿฅ— with beets. I took one of the beets into on the fork and rubbed my lips gently. Viola! My lips ๐Ÿ‘„ got a rosy glow!

The beets stained and actually tinted my lips!

Beets to the rescue!

Also since I am mad about juicing and love to save $ and do it at home. Hereโ€™s a recipe I learned from a spa in the UK. It is delicious and so good for us.

3 granny smith apples

2 cups of blueberries

10 1/oz. raw beetroot

You simply process these ingredients through your juicer. It tastes it’s best when freshly made that day. Energizing way to start the day and so colorful! This serves 2 but I like to serve in a shot glass and enjoy throughout the day.

Enjoy!

Beet Beauty to the rescue~

beet-salad-1Some celebrities use strawberries on their teeth to make them whiter. Allure my fave beauty magazine recommends you try a bag of frozen peas on your eyes for puffiness. Women in Italy love olive oil for hair and skin.

I had to take it a bit further …when I forgot my tinted lipstain yesterday.

I had accidentally left my lipstick at my office on my desk in my cosmetic case.I own a cosmetic candy shoppe and I was lipstickless. I HATE not to have any color on my lips. I mean it drives me crazy!
Worse yet people stop me some days as they recognize me from my beauty & lifestyle segment on TV.

So,I took the beet from my salad and slipped it into a napkin and went into the powder room. I placed the fresh aubergine beet on my lips as if I were applying a lipstick.Then I applied a dash of the new mini pop in your purse Vaseline over the beet stain on my lips.
My lips were kissed with a soft ruby tint and I looked marvelous!

It’s fun to experiment…share with me what recipes you have come up with.
I love hearing from you.
