It is a pandemic and it is taking a toll on our face,hair and body.

So best thing for you to do is drink some smoothies for your skin and enjoy the beauty and nourishment from within. Your hair will shine and look sublime.

Have you tried juicing at home?

Once you start you don’t want to turn back! And it’s so delicious and good for you.

I love to make all kinds of juices with my juicer and with my blender. I love shopping the farmers market, roadside stands especially in the summer and buying fruit and veggies from Asian markets too. The exotic fruits are so fun to explore.

Exotic fruits are so fun to shop for!

Here’s one of my many favorite recipes !

Fresh & Tropical Delight

1 pineapple 🍍 slice and skin temoved

Blend well! Enjoy this healthy tropical delight! Embellish with an umbrella and sip away and pretend you’re in the tropics.

Bonus:

Another favorite drink of mine is to make a simple recipe fresh carrot 🥕 juice.

5 fresh carrots. Tops cut off

Leave the skin on DO NOT peel for it is filled with minerals and vitamins.

Add a small piece of garlic and a a touch of ginger. Even better.

I love to make them with coconut water too!

Day 21 of MY Beauty Secrets

Working in Manhattan on photo shoots and on special events taught me a lot! One of the beauty dilemmas I saw when we had an early call on set was… the models had puffy face and eyes And dark bags under the eyes especially when the sun 🌞 hadn’t even come up yet.

So besides using 🥒 cool cucumber slices, chamomile and anti-inflammatory eye gels on the lids and under the eyes and face there was another trick I discovered and have used on myself and on my VIP clients and the girl next door!

The answer was cold tepid 💦 water. Splashing the face with water at least 8 to 10 times works magic!

It’s especially good to do once you get out of the shower. It deflates and wakes up the face! It also appeared to make the pores appear smaller.

Also, they would not serve them coffee and donuts. They would serve them a cup of warm lemon water. It made them tinkle a lot !

There’s something wonderful about that water!

Better than a face primer! Water! 💦

And drinking it actually made the face and the body look skinnier and flatten the tummy too for photographs or on an event location appearance.

I never forgot that trick… so simple and so effective!

Next time you have someplace special to go to or get your photo taken and more. TRY this model and photographers trick!
