SUGAR Please!

Happy 1st day of summer!

As the summer begins you want to EXFOLIATE your skin. Dead skin cells mount up on your hands,feet and body and your skin needs a bit of TLC attention. This will also help you get a better even tan. I love doing this before I apply my sunless tanner. Your skin will be smoother and tan faster and more efficiently.

It really WORKS!

Sugar & CITRUS Scrub

2 tablespoons of  white or brown sugar

1 orange zest

1 tablespoon of lemon juice

2 tablespoons of sunflower oil or apricot kernel oil

Mix all of these in a small bowl and on a clean body. I like my body to be slightly damp. Rub in circular motions and slough off your tired looking winter skin. Your skin will turn a little pink and have a flushed look. That’s a good thing. You are bringing blood to the surface and helping circulation.

Rinse well with luke warm washcloth. Next, apply your fave body lotion.

Lemon Love Water

Follow this D.I.Y. treatment by drinking  a half a gallon of water with a slice or two of lemons. Drinking this will eliminate toxins and flush and clean you from the inside.

Sip it throughout your day.

I hope you will enjoy this refreshing skin loving treat,be more hydrated and kiss your dull skin…GOODBYE!

Neon Eyeliners That Eliminate the Need for Any Other Makeup — StyleCaster

Just back from Las Vegas and trying to get over jetlag! So much to share with you about my trip but first sharing this post filled with all things NEON EYEliner colors!

I so love neon and happy to share this post from StyleCaster on neon eyeliners! Do you love color like I do too?

 

The all-too-familiar “less is more” mantra applies to most aspects of life, including my beauty routine. Actually, I won’t tip-toe around this: “less is more” can apply to every single part of my day-to-day; from the makeup (or lack thereof) on my face to the Vans on my feet, despite having 50 pairs of other…

Jennifer Aniston’s Colorist On How To Keep Color-Treated Hair From Fading In The Sun — StyleCaster

Summer is just around the corner, which means the annual search for those perfect sun-kissed locks is starting up once again. Whether you want to go golden hued like Gisele, or bright and blonde like Blake (Lively), nothing says “we’re ready for vacation” more than a warm tan and freshly-lightened locks. But how can you…

Is your lipstick making your lips DRY?

Beauty has had an explosion of  lip stains,three application and product steps and other matte and drying lipsticks. Just remember not all lip stains are created equal and some seem to make lips dry no matter what. Since I have an addiction for lipsticks and all things lips I have had my share of testing,tasting and applying all kinds and brands of lipsticks.

Here is a recipe for a pretty amazing sugary delight for your lips! 

1 cup white sugar

½ cup coconut oil

6 drops of lemon essential oil or less

*Make it fun and add a few drops of pink food coloring or even Kool-aid!

Apply to freshly washed wet lips and go back in forth with your pinkie. Leave on at least 10 minutes. You’ll want to eat it but don’t. Instead fill this in a small jam jar or whatever little glass jar you may have.

Rinse with lukewarm water and a washcloth. Next apply your fave lip balm.

I love recycling and re-purposing  jars and other cute containers. It is so chic to be green. This recipe will make a few jars. This recipe may be used on your lips or your daughters or granddaughters lips.  Shelf life in refrigerator is a few weeks.

Don’t let the summer get away until you’ve tried this pink and lemony skin softening delight.

Low on cash and want to refresh your feet and last months pedicure?

  • Soak your cares away with Epsom salt and Peppermint essential oil or fresh peppermint or mint leaves from your garden in a warm water foot bath. It is very soothing and cools the skin especially after a long hot day!
  • Soaking your feet for 15 minutes with Epsom salts also refreshes the soles and take down any swelling of the ankles and feet.
  • Clean well around your nails and toes with a nail brush,orange wood stick and file any rough nail edges.
  • When done apply a hydrating salve or lotion like Smith’s RoseBud Salve. It is fabulous for your feet,heels,cuticles,lips,brows and unwanted hair around your hairline. Celebrities and models love this product.
  • Skip the nail polish if you’d like or apply a fabulous color. It is fine to give your nails a vacay from polish.
  • Your feet and skin will look and feel amazing. photo flip flops

So I have been working in and out of town and had to take a moment to post. I know it has been awhile.Here is my weekend beauty secret before a party or for Sunday Funday kinda day at home lounging in your pajamas!

Baby it is so HOT outside. After a day at the beach or you might even have computer eyes…staring at the screen or on your mobile devices.

I love to refresh my eyes with these! Ice Water eyes...have you tried them?

Refreshing soothing,moisturizing and  they will de-puff your eyes too,

Micro infused with collagen,aloe,amino acids and vitamins C and E really pamper and treat the skin around your eyes.All you do is apply the pads below the eyes and leave on 15-20 minutes. Remove and throw out. If I really want to get more bang for my beauty buck I pack them in the package one more time and use it another night.

Great for hotel,traveling on the airplane and more~ These type masks for your eyes I so adore.

Summer days…speaking to you?

Coconut LIPS

Me too…maybe it is time for you to explore what’s around the corner or take a day trip or two!

There is this town where they have a lot of amazing things as well as the Fountain of Youth. So much to explore,so little

time. Even the coconut monkeys wear lipstick! You know how that thrills me!

It is in Florida in a quaint town called St. Augustine. This town is approximately 45 minutes away. Yet, I am hardly ever out that way. I am always working. Either in town or headed on an airplane.Yet it haunts me. I LOVE THIS CITY!

Speaking of which it has an awesome Ghost Tour at night. Sangria reigns supreme and it is such a charming city with a major  Spanish influence.Just walking on this city’s streets brick by brick takes you back in time.

Perhaps you have a place near you that is calling out to you. Enjoy the last weeks of summer through mid- September too. There is still time to enjoy the view.

Not so …FUN IN THE SUN?

Got BURNED?

Fill an ice cube tray with fresh buttermilk and freeze. Rub on your sunburned and red areas to cool you down .photo SUN

I SO LOVE THE SUN…and the way it makes my face and body feel. However,as a skin professional I am so sad when I see sunburned,red,scars from a bad burn. This recipe is great for kids too.

Be sunSMART!
