Baby it is so COLD outside. Isn’t it?

Our weather wreaks havoc on our face,body and health. Let me share with you how to feel better in this weather and share a skin moisturizing D.I.Y. too!

  • Glow Matrix is a beauty supplement you take daily to keep moisture in your skin and wrinkles away. Collagen Matrix and Ceramides create a barrier to keep moisture in thus helping to hydrate your skin from within NOT just outside on your skin.Helps improve skin moisture and elasticity and reduced signs of aging in just 15 days! Topically you can use Hydra+ H.A. Serum for superior hydration.Paraben-Free advanced skin cell turnover and lubrication.www.neocell.com
  • ZIM’S Petroleum-free vapo rub is excellent to suppress an annoying cough due to drier weather and cold season and is used on your chest for coughs and colds. WARMS you up and makes you cough less and feel better.Hot tea,drinking water and eating chicken soup work alongside this too.
  • Moisturize your face,lips and body and hair too! Applying face hand and body lotion is a must!  You can use store bought brands or you can make it yourself! CeraVe moisturizing lotion or cream is filled with ceramides and hyaluronic acid and is recommended highly by dermatologists.It offers advanced skin care without a prescription. Also has NO fragrance and gentle enough for sensitive skin. Zim’s Crack Cream is an herbal skin cream for dry cracked skin. Made with aloe vera and arnica. Use on cuticles,elbows,knees and feet.
  • Have flyaway hairs and static?Try rubbing a dryer sheet in the palm of your hands and on direct on your hair recommends my hairdresser John Brent from Chocolate Blonde Salon.
  • OR you can make this D.I.Y. Recipe for making a Lavender Skin Smoothie:Whip up some organic coconut oil in a glass bowl. Add a couple of drops of lavender essential oil.Mix again. Place in a pretty jar and smooth up your dry skin and watch your skin drink it in. Recipe will last a few weeks in a tightly sealed jar.Great for the whole family! By the way if you do not like this essential try peppermint or rose or another.

I LOVE sharing recipes and new and old time beauty secrets with you. Enjoy!

Your Skin!

Blueberry HAliquid_016185-09665-3

I practice what I preach and try to do all the right things when it comes to my health and for healthy looking skin.Here is something I have been taking by the spoonful daily for months. I LOVE what it does and so does my husband.

Don’t worry when you see ACID it is not bad…nor harmful.Hyaluronic Acid ( I know it is a tongue twister) is something we are born with and over time depletes in us over time.

If it is so good I want to keep that good thing going! Don’t you?

NeoCell Hyaluronic Acid Blueberry Liquid is a naturally delicious dietary supplement that replenishes the body’s HA supply. It is enhanced with the antioxidant power of Pomegranate and Green Tea, blueberry, and the absorption benefits of Ionic Minerals. This elixir uses Agave nectar as a low glycemic index sweetener.

As we age, the HA content in our bodies naturally decreases. One way this decrease manifests is from UV radiation (the SUN) which breaks down collagen fibers causing wrinkles and sagging skin.

NeoCell’s HA Benefits:*

  • Provides the most bio-available form of hyaluronic acid
  • Holds 1,000 times its weight in water for cushioning of joints
  • Assists in cell turnover in the skin
  • Powerful aid in skin hydration and wrinkle reduction
  • Lubricates the surface of the eye

Taking supplements can be a beautiful thing! DON’T sigh and complain about those new or old wrinkles ….

Do something,Darlings!

Want HOT looking Celebrity Hair?

keratin-bannerToday I want to share with you some hot tips and celebrity stylist hair care secrets! It isn’t just about the celebrity it is about the stylist behind her hair and what she or he uses on it.

David Babaii: Is the stylist behind actress Kate Hudson’s hair.He has some awesome products she loves. One is called Root Lifter and contains volcanic ash.It works to lift her root hair and gives her bouncing beautiful hair.

Peter Coppola: is the stylist behind many celebrities and the girl next door.He created a hair mask.Yes mask for your hair not for your face.This hair treatment acts like what a face mask does for your face.It is a creamy and dreamy products and I use it once a week.

CHI is THE HOT BEAUTY TOOL company and so on trend.They are used on celebrities and on super models too. They recently came out with a styling iron that I simply had to own. It was introduced to the world at MERCEDES-BENZ fashion week in New York. It is called the CHI Escape cordless iron.

Hair Secrets for fabulous hair: Lisa Marie, VP of Education and shows for CHI says for thin hair,a blunt cut is best to give the appearance of fullness. For coarse/thick hair,have your stylist texturize them removing some bulk plus soften ends to create a light airy finish. The “heavy bang” compliments most face shapes.It provides a young fresh look that women of any age can experiment with.

Fake it…there are lots of smoke and mirrors when it comes to hair in Hollywood,New York and beyond. What you see may not be real. There are clip on bangs,clip on trends,hair weaves,hair extensions and more.All of these enhance the hair and make it look longer,shorter,fuller,with bangs one day and no bangs tomorrow kind of hair.Halo is the company many A-listers use as well as the girl next door.It comes with a CD and seems pretty easy to use.

Celebrities and personal trainers embrace healthy and good for their body,skin and hair.

Biotin Bursts by NEOCELL is  company that I have fallen in love with. This is like candy for your hair. They come in a yummy gourmet chew that help your hair look its best.

They also have a vitamin for healthier looking hair and it is called Keratin Volumizer. If you have hair that is not what you want it to be or lacking luster. Maybe you want to look for these at your local drug or health food store.I take them daily.

strong>Professional stylists also like to use dryer sheets to calm down static cling hair.And they use a baby’s toothbrush or comb with Moroccon oil to control fly aways or wiry out of control hair when on a photo shoot or at a red carpet event.

YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT. It is also about what you eat. For healthy fabulous hair. Add a few things to your diet.Dark green vegetables,walnuts as a snack or in your salad and having eggs for breakfast all really helping your hair.

Want watch me show these and watch a TV clip too? Got to http://www.firstcoastnews.com and click on the left of the screen for the show called THE CHAT.

Wrinkles around your lips? FAB lip Tips!

photo.JPG The CHAT
I LOVE LIPS! Better than chocolate (almost) I love ANYTHING to do lips!
As you may know my signature slogan and mantra is “A woman without lipstick is like a day without sunshine”.
Hope you have some sunshine on your LIPS today?

Today I want to share with you some of my fave “go to” things for your lips from products to LIP beauty rescues. I was featured on the only local talk show on the First Coast called The Chat in sunny Jacksonville Florida. WTLV NBC 12 & WJXX ABC25

Does your lipstick or lip gloss run down your lips and out of the outline?

Use a clear lip pencil.

Yes,this transparent lip liner stick works wonders on your lips!
No color just an invisible looking pencil that you use just like you would with a lip liner with pigment.
If you need a little more help try Perfect Day Lip Base. Like foundation for your lips it makes your lip color stay on better, remain true and helps keep it from running too.

BOTH of these products help and also great for smokers,drinking straw sippers and suckers and sunbathers lips.
You know what I mean those pesky lines around your lips!

Has your favorite lipsticks been discontinued,broke or melted?

Lip Motel to the rescue! This long empty motel compact with mini compartments will hold your lipsticks or lip balms.Simply scoop your leftover lip products with the mini spatula into the empty spaces and save them to use over and over again. Eco chic and fabulous.Be your own makeup artist and use the cool stuff we use too.This is a makeup artists secret!

What’s trending in lipsticks and with Celebrities ?

They are not only are wearing a fabulous lipstick but wearing lipstick,lips and nail polish on their ears,necks and fingers in the form of bling!
They are even wearing handbags in the shape of luscious lips for night clubbing. It is a conversation piece and fashionable fun!

Dehydrated lips LOVE and need this recipe I call …Sugar Me Up

What you’ll need:

1 teaspoon of brown sugar
1 teaspoon of Organic coconut oil (I LOVE the Whole Foods Everyday 365 Value brand)
1 drop of vitamin E oil (optional)

Stir the above up and enjoy as a lip exfoliator weekly. If your lipsticks are drying out your lips. You NEED this DIY treatment!

If you want a skin soothing lip balm on the cheap. Try this aromatic Rose scented Lip balm!

What you will need:

1 teaspoon or 2 of Organic Coconut oil (depending on size of container)
1 drop of Aura Cacia rose essential oil (optional)

Stir the two well and pour into a container from the Dollar store or a mini jam jar. Apply on clean naked lips nightly!

I ALWAYS kiss my lips goodnight with a lip treatment.I also take beauty supplements and for my sweet tooth and prettier skin take a Beauty Burst a day alongside my other vitamins.

Looking good feels fabulous! Enjoy my beauty secrets,and lifestyle tips along with my natural D.I.Y. recipes!

They are called Beauty Bursts and I love them so much I featured them on TV last Saturday on my beauty and lifestyle segment on WJXT-4 The Morning Show.They are not just a sweet treat and taste good they are a supplement to your multi-vitamin if you want to keep your skin looking good.They are what I call “Candy for your face!”

NeoCell’s Beauty Bursts deliver high absorption beauty nutrients in delectable,gourmet Collagen soft chews.No gluten,soy,palm oil or artificial anything.They come in several flavors right now I am enjoying a chocolate mint chew.This Super Collagen strengthens skin,hair and nails.Hyaluronic Acid is known as “nature’s moisturizer” and hydrates the skin from within.Vitamin C is essential to boosting Collagen in the skin.These three powerhouse beauty ingredients work together to build beautiful skin from the inside out.

Having beautiful and radiant skin has never been so easy or so delicious the company says…and it is so true. Alongside your moisturizer and a balanced healthy diet you can do it too.
