Illuminate and Celebrate…

SALT LAMPS.JPG

 

Shopping for a a gift for a loved one or friend takes time.

Don’t rush shopping for a gift especially when it is for someone special.Every night I sit by candlelight and this light …A serene salt lamp. I have them all over my home and in my business too. They illuminate to room and create such a calming and pretty ambience and a mood all their own.

A salt lamp has so many beautiful benefits! And healthy ones too.

They purify the air,great to use around electronics and computers,smokers homes and are great for people with allergies. Google them and you’ll find ALL their benefits.

I highly recommend them. They used to cost a bit of money but now have come down in price and also gotten smaller and more portable even to clip in to your computer to brighten up the mood or your work space.

I also think they are kinda sexy and cool.

If you’re looking for that perfect gift for HIM or for HER… Think about giving this as a gift. They will treasure a long time and think of you every time they flip the switch too.

What do your lips say about you?

Lips say so much without saying a word!

Dry, soft, peeling, lined, crusty lips all are signs of something and are a clue to what may be going on with your health too. Keeping your lips healthy requires care on your part too.

Dry Lips may be a sign of weather like being in the hot sun or cold and frigid weather. A job that requires you to work outdoors, from blood pressure medicine or other medications. Or you can simply be thirsty.

Beauty FIX: Applying a lip balm or lip treatment conditioner can make a huge difference and will hydrate them and make them LOOK better too. In order for you to see results, you must do this day and night. Stay hydrated drink plenty of water.

Peeling lips can be caused by the outer elements like the weather. Also todayโ€™s new formula die-hard lipsticks can cause dry peeling, flaky lips.
*If this happens to you switch to another brand lipstick that works better for the skin on your lips. If this continues, stop using the product that dries out your lips. Unfortunately, you cannot always have it all long lasting lipstick and soft lips.

Beauty FIX: Apply a lip exfoliator on your lips. It usually comes in a lipstick tube form or you can try to make your own.

Lined lips can be a sign of a smoker or sunbather. Sometimes it is caused from your outdoor job or your fave sport.
.

Beauty FIX: Use a lip conditioner with vitamin E, C or shea butter to nourish the skin tissue and lines around the lips.
Also, apply moisturizer and or sunscreen on the skin around your lips. Doing this WILL make your skin look and feel better.
Apply a lip balm or lipstick with sunscreen and it will work wonders if you add them to your beauty regime day and night.

Celebrities and models use an old time apothecary secret I know you will love and it is called Rosebud Salve. This rose scented balm in a tin type jar makes your lips beautifully moist and hydrated. It also is great for chapped cheeks and to soften your cuticles.

Here are a couple of quick and cheap recipes you make at home!

2 crushed almonds (unsalted)
1 tablespoon of plain dry oatmeal
1/3 to ยผ cup of fresh water

Rinse well with a lukewarm washcloth

Let your lips air dry and apply your favorite lip balm.
Your lips will love this!

My recipe for a D.I.Y. Lip Scrub

1 soup spoon of brown sugar
1/3 sunflower or almond oil

Mix the two together with a small bowl or mini glass dish.

Apply on clean lips with a babyโ€™s toothbrush.
Rub back and forth gently!

Apply your favorite lip conditioner afterwards.

Allergies got you down?

SALT LAMPS

ME TOO!My voice sounds like a sexy 900 line phone gal!

As a beauty therapist I am always on the hunt for healthy beauty too. I have found relief for my allergies and to stress less.
It is a salt lamp.

Like the salty ocean air,salt lamps are an amazing generator of negative ions. Simply put they clean and purify the air. They also ease a person into an alpha state, a state in which you feel completely in the moment and not distracted by stress. When on they illuminate your space with a beautiful array of colors. A glowing golden amber,light pink and soft orange illuminates your space and relaxes. You have to see it in person and FEEL it to truly believe in it.

Great for your office near your computer, a bedroom, hallway,living room or create your own meditation room or corner and enjoy some spa like music too.

If you have pets this really helps clean your air. It also helps to improve the quality of smokers air.Especially helpful if you don’t smoke and someone in your house does.

LIFE in the 21st century as well as the economy has become so stressful for your body,mind and spirit. Light up your world and feel better by surrounding yourself with this amazing creation. rich in history from the Himalayan mountains to salt spas in Poland…FEEL the mystical powers they convey and the healing energy.

While I am not a doctor and not trying to make any health claims EXCEPT the facts they say about these lamps…I do feel better and am stressing less.
Simply had to share with you!

Light up your world with a healthy twist.
