I’m really trying to enjoy being more green, clean and eco friendly…with my food and lifestyle.

And in my skincare too!

Skin is so in…Especially when it is healthy looking. If your skin is not looking the way you would like it to… Perhaps its time to try something fresh and new! Looking good takes a little effort girls and so worth it. If you do not have a skin care regime now is the time to start. Also if you have been wearing sweat pants and not taking care of your skin think about taking time for YOU and get your skin in shape too.

They say “You are what you eat” and it is so true. Eating right … with a little bit of a naughty is really best. All in balance and moderation darlings! I’ve been on a kick of making SMOOTHIE BOWLS and making them is so much fun too. Your whole family will enjoy.

I love to get glowing, use beauty from my kitchen, a local farmer’s market, and make a few D.I.Y. beauty recipes and beauty potions on my own.

I will share some of the them on my new podcast to come too! But here are a few for you to enjoy this Memorial day too.

Take care of your skin and your skin will always take care of you!

Recipe for pretty skin starts from within. Not only are these good to eat they are good to use as skincare. Especially when many of us are on stay at home orders.

Yogurt (plain Greek yogurt) makes a GREAT cheap and chic face mask. Apply to a clan face and leave on at least 15 minutes. Genty exfoliates dead skin cells too.

Avocados are a great for hydrating your face and neck. Add honey to a mashed avocado and leave on at least 15 minutes. Your skin will LOVE it.

Bananas work wonders on dry elbows and knees. If your bananas are beyond ripe and you don’t feel like making banana bread…give your skin a moisturizing natural treat.

In addition, when the weather is hot and you want to chill down and make your skin feel amazing. Take a plain ice cube and rub gently on your skin. Not your eye area but try on the face. It will tighten your pores and make your makeup glide on beautifully. I also like to use an ice cube on my chest and neck. So cool and refreshing.

Have a BEAUTY filled deligthful day!

My Skinny Water Recipe

herbs

Get Bikini ready or to wear less clothes with this cool water cocktail! I love-making this refreshing treat. So, I thought I’d share this recipe with you to enjoy for the long weekend.

It is also time to stay even more hydrated and this is one of my beauty secrets with a healthy twist. Say Bye Bye to sodas and sugary coffee drinks. Give your body what it needs. Water!

Here is what you’ll need:

1 bunch of fresh mint

1 fresh orange

1 fresh lime

1 fresh grapefruit

1 pitcher of drinking water

*ice is optional

Mint is refreshing and helps and tastes even better when you are tired or stressed out.Grapefruits are popular for their fat burning properties.Limes help remove toxins,are great for the skin and aid in losing weight. Oranges are filled with vitamin C and helps to keep you healthier.

Slice up 4 mint leaves of the above except for the mint leaves.Shred a few of the leaves and keep a few whole. Place all of these in the pitcher of fresh water. Let it rest over night or if you’d like to enjoy it today place pitcher on the kitchen counter at room temperature for at least 4-6 hours allowing the water and the fruits to infuse together.

Serve cold and ENJOY the beauty and detoxifying benefits! It is not just for helping you get your body summer ready. It is delicious and refreshing as a drink for you and the entire family or your guests at a barbecue.

I like to rim the glasses in agave nectar or a dash of honey.Or you can skip this touch of sweetness twist.

I so enjoy shopping my little garden (this is a photo of my mint plant) #shoppinglocal and visiting farmers markets.

I also buy supplies at Whole Foods.They are on the same quest I am on and I love supporting them.Let me know how you enjoy this recipe. Have a fabulous relaxing weekend!

Learn to love water…it will love to back.
