I LOVE AMERICA and the beauty of Blueberries!

Since I was a little girl, I have been making beauty potions. Now that I’m older and as a beauty professional, I love to do them even more.

Hot and steamy weather calls for this!
This is one of my summer favorite beauty recipes for amazing skin treatments not found in a jar but down the aisles of Whole Foods Market or a market wherever you may shop and live! Your skin will LOVE the benefits from these recipes. You can make this recipe for yourself,with your daughter, your mom or even your sweetie.

My husband loves these spa at home recipes too!

½ cup of fresh or frozen blueberries
½ cup of plain creamy Greek yogurt
¼ cup of organic local Honey if possible

Rinse the berries and place in a blender. Add the honey and yogurt.
Blend until creamy. Using your clean fingers or a stiff fan mask brush apply the mask to your face and neck.
Allow it to rest on your face at least 10 to 15 minutes. Remove with luke warm water and a
washcloth.

Please note: If you are allergic to the above obviously do not try the recipe. In addition, these are made from scratch so the shelf life is a few days in a tightly closed glass jar in the refrigerator. I suggest using them to the last drop and enjoy it all at once or in a couple of days.

I also like to use blueberries in a salad,over yogurt or freeze as ice cubes in lemonade.

Blueberries are like healthy candy for my body instead of a real candy bar. Honey is a natural moisturizer that locks in moisture. Your skin loves yogurt and all of the above are found in fabulous face and body creams sold on store shelves.

If you love to be healthy, eco-friendly, green and gorgeous…come back to my blog soon.

Happy 4th of July if you live in America!!!

If you don’t have a fab weekend and enjoy this recipe too.

Water for Gorgeous Skin!

The sun came out in Florida today and I was so HAPPY. The weather hasn’t been so fabulous. Like the rest of the country we have had our share of crazy weather.Lots of rain and gray days!

So, at my makeup & skin studio I decided I had to make some awesome infused water. A touch of the spa if you will. Yesterday on TV I shared a recipe that the viewers of The Chat TV show loved… I wanted to share the simple recipe with you.You can watch it at http://www.firstcoastnews.com click on The Chat on the left side search bar. ENJOY!

After a long winter YOUR skin and mine is dry and thirsty!

To hydrate your skin you need WATER not soda,sugary drinks or sweet iced tea. I know what you’re going to say. You think drinking water is boring or you don’t like drinking water. Well get over it my darlings. If you want prettier skin and a healthier hydrated body you need water as part of your beauty regime.

I am sipping this  water as I write this blog and in a gorgeous goblet like it is a glass of wine.Make it part of your daily ritual too.

Here is the recipe I showed on TV:

1 fresh organic kiwi

1 fresh organic lemon

*sprinkle in a few berries like raspberries or blueberries for more fun!

1 pitcher of fresh spring or drinking water (room temperature is best) NOT hot and don’t add a ton of ice.

Slice the fruit and place into the pitcher of water.This fruit infused mix water will hydrate and much healthier than soda or iced tea.(I love them too…But)

Let the water rest on the counter before serving for at least one hour for the fruit to dance with each other and infuse the water.

This infused water contains vitamin A and C and is really tasty if you like these fruits.

Take care of yourself! Be good to yourself! Your skin will love you for it.
