Foot Bath Recipe

Time to take care of those precious feet of yours. Self care Sunday is here!

We are tired. Tired 😴 of this pandemic and need a lift! Right?

So here are two refreshing DIY recipes to try. Summer is here and you want better looking and softer feet too. Don’t you?

Fill a foot basin or create one with what you have with warm water and some 🍋 lemon and orange 🍊 slices. Place a couple of drops of peppermint essential oil.

Unless you’re allergic choose another oil of your choice like eucalyptus or tea tree.

Place your feet 🦶 in the bath.

Soak your feet for at least 15 minutes.

Rinse your feet and place your fave hand and body lotion or cream.

Your feet will feel so AmaZzzing!

Another creamy and dreamy treatment you can do is simple and so delightful! It will cost you under $2.00 I hope you have it in your kitchen pantry.

Do one soak today and another foot soak later in the week.

Fill a bath with warm water 💦 and soak your feet with a cup of coconut 🥥 milk 🥛. It is a treatment many cultures like to do. Softens the skin and heels too. Afterwards be careful and rinse off the milk and water bath. Towel dry and put a pair of white socks on. Go to bed.

Wake up feeling better and softer and with a smile on your feet 🦶

How To Declutter A Room In 5 Easy Steps —

I have been cleaning up and organizing in my home these past few days. How about you? What have you been doing?

This bloggers post gave me food for thought. I have a room I would like to tackle. My  office at home. We have the time.Now let’s try and use it wisely and help our mind,body and spirit.

Were all in this together! Have a beauty filled day.

By Leanne Shelton Are you sick of the inescapable mess in your home? Not only can clutter create feelings of guilt – it also inhibits productivity and creativity. And those are two undesirable traits when working from home. In our current crazy climate, decluttering rooms is a form of self-care. It means removing the ‘stuff’…

Chocolate…Do I have your attention?

Need I say more?
SPREADING some LOVE JUST IN TIME for Galentine’s and Valentine’s day.
There’s a new edible beauty in town and it will help you achieve AGELESS skin!

It’s called Ageless Delight! And I’m on my third piece.Not too sweet,tastes just right and you can’t even tell that it has all these beautiful ageless benefits for your skin.

Ceramiracle has just introduced the first-ever, clean-label, sugar-free, AGELESS Beauty Chocolate Supplement — and it’s VEGAN, KETO, AND GLUTEN-FREE!

 
 
POWERFUL INGREDIENTS:
  • Made with 70% organic South American Dark Chocolate.
  • Fucoidan (RENEWS SKIN ELASTICITY): A super gut repairing antioxidant from seaweed that stimulates collagen production in your skin and protects your skin’s natural elasticity.
  • Polyphenols (RICH IN ANTIOXIDANTS): Is naturally packed with antioxidants which aids in skin firming and rejuvenation.
  • Phytoceramides (IMPROVES MOISTURE RETENTION): Helps to recreate the protective skin layer that has been lost to time by binding the skin together and locking in moisture. It improves the skin’s density and restores elasticity.

I don’t know about you but I embrace age. It is a part of life. I don’t want to necessarily look younger and the word anti-aging is so over used. I want to look ageless and look my personal best. I also adore a good box of chocolates and these individually wrapped bites are simply DELIGHTFUL and taste heavenly!
The company calls it soul food for the skin.
The pretty aqua blue packaging reminds me of the spa and being by the sea.
Can you feel it with me?

In love with Nail Lacquer?

Me too!

This  is an awesome polish from the hues to the way the lid is made that you apply the polish with. I am mesmerized by this polish. The best part it contains  only THE BEST. You know all the names we can’t even pronounce and that are bad for our health.SMITH & CULT

NO toluene,dibutyl phthalate,camphor,formaldehyde nor formaldehyde resin. I told you you can barely pronounce them!

This brand of polish was created by Dineh Mohajer whom I have had the pleasure of meeting at a beauty event.

She was the founder of the brand Hard Candy a fun brand that started all the cool packaging and a touch of whimsy.

I featured this brand on TV today. Thought you’d like to hear about this new brand.

BRAS

It is that time of year where we all seem to THINK PINK and are reminded of Breast Cancer Awareness month.I just went for mine and I feel so good.It really doesn’t hurt and it is quick and good for your health.
Afterwards I treated myself to some beautiful colorful bras. Take care of yourself if you don’t who will?

Have you had a physical lately and booked your mammogram dahlings?

Mesothelioma

A fellow blogger wrote me to ask that I share and spread the word on this cancer to make you aware of it.
Since my blog is more about beauty,skin,lifestyle,food and my travel adventures I really did not know what to say.This is a more serious and a topic that is close to his heart as his wife has it.So,I thought since TODAY is National Mesothelioma Awareness day I’d share his message with you. It is an uncommon form of cancer that affects the lining of the organs. It could be the lungs,the heart and more.
The predominant cause of Mesothelioma is asbestos.It is found in hospitals,schools and many more places.

No sunscreen makes me want to scream!

Sunscreen beach 2014 photo

When you head out to enjoy the long 4th of July holiday weekend.

Don’t forget this…SUNSCREEN!

Whether on the beach,sunbathing,walking,playing golf,active in sports,bike riding,surfing,or on a boat. You need to be protected. And by the way just because you have a medium to dark complexion doesn’t mean you don’t need it.
ALL faces,bodies and skin types can get BURNED. Even BABIES need protection!!!

Now don’t get me wrong, you can spend time outdoors and escape for a beautiful walk on the beach. However,you’ve gotta protect your skin and your health! Don’t you?

I LOVVVVVE the way the sun kisses my face daily. I love spending time in the sun.But everything in healthy moderation and the right protection.I am a skin professional who simply wants to HELP you be sun smart.

My sister was diagnosed with Squamous cell skin cancer, my other sister was diagnosed with Melanoma and they don’t even spend time in the sun.They sunbathed just a little when they were teens.They never used a tanning bed and since they live so far from a beach they don’t spend any time at the beach or outdoors except to go in and out of their house door or car. Now,after their diagnosis they stay completely out of the sun and use sunscreen.

Skin cancer is on the rise.
It should be no surprise! MOST people are not skin smart these days.
Don’t be one of the not so pretty or fatal statistics.
Protect yourself!
LOVE that skin and body you’re in.
You’ll be glad you did.

Makeup Tips for Tweenagers and Teens

kelllllllllllllli2When it comes to makeup Tweens and Teens I know you want to start wearing makeup a lot sooner than when I was growing up! While I love MAKEUP and own a beauty candy shoppe …my message to you is to embrace your face! Don’t rush! Live in the moment and enjoy your beauty and the beauty of growing up today.

Here are a few tips and tricks to remember:

SUNSCREEN is a girl’s best friend.

Cleaning your face at night is a MUST.(Even if you don’t wear makeup.)Don’t go to sleep with makeup on EVER.

Learn to LOVE water.It is so good for your health and your skin.If you are not wild about it make spa water.It is so much fun to make at home.New recipe to follow in next blog.

YOU are what you eat…try and eat a balanced diet.And a cupcake sometime.

Take care of your skin.Don’t use deodorant bars on your delicate face.Use a soap bar that is made for the complexion.I love home-made bars by crafters like a skin Clarity bar that gently cleans and exfoliates.
If you have normal to very dry skin don’t use this type bar. Go for a goat’s milk hydrating bar or something like a Dove soap.

A face mask is a must. I love to wash away impurities and clean my skin with a clay based mask.

If you are a 8,9,10,11 or 12 years old:SORRY…you don’t need to wear ANY makeup except a lip gloss,balm or lip conditioner. YOU are beautiful they way you are.

If you 13 or 14 years old you can use a soft lipstick or lip gloss and soft shade of blush is fine.

If you are 15,16,:a pretty lipstick,gloss,blush and a kiss of a neutral pretty eyeshadow is fine.Mascara for special occassions.Clear mascara is another option for brows and lash definition.

NO FOUNDATION for any age below 15 years old. Yes,really.Your lashes are beautiful.

18 is the perfect age to start to wear: A dash of tinted moisturizer,beauty balm,or a soft application of foundation is fine.A lipstick or gloss,one pretty eyeshadow to highlight the eyes. Mascara in the form of tubes.(easy to remove and does not run) A kiss of blush to the apple of your cheeks.
Rice powder to set your makeup or a setting spray.

Beauty Note: STAY AWAY FROM black mascara or liner unless it is in the evening or if you want to make your eyes look defined but smaller.Opt for a navy,teal,eggplant mascara and they will always make your eyes look bigger.Don’t overdo mascara and look like tarantella eyes.It is not a pretty look.

Please note: As a professional makeup artist I highly recommend and am in beauty love with the magic of rice powder. It tones down shine,makes your makeup last longer,is fabulous for girls or guys with acne or even a mature woman.

Concealer or cover-up is optional at your age. If you do need it buy it in the form of a lipstick tube.Easy to apply and is used for undereye circles and for blemishes.

Don’t wear chipped nail polish.Keep those nails looking good with a sheer metallic shade.These shades don’t show chips.
Or try a bold or hot new color.

Go for a makeup lesson and have someone teach you the RIGHT way to take care of your skin and how to do your makeup for every day.

Look your age! Don’t do your makeup over the top or worse yet be a CAKE FACE!

You are only YOUNG and your age once! Enjoy the ride.
Have fun and kiss & makeup!
