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!

Day 21 to more beautiful skin

sunglasses
Your eyes and the skin around them!

Working in New York you are hidden by lots of buildiings so the sun to me didn’t hit my face like it does in Florida. For years I did not wear sunglasses! Now I think I got a bit smarter on this and see the difference. The skin around your eyes needs TLC and that means sunglasses they actually PROTECT the health of your eyes.They also help with preventing more wrinkles. Squinting from the sun causes wrinkles and not using sunglasses can age that delicate tissue around your eyes over time. My clients whine about those crows feet. I hate those words. I am not a crow and neither are they. They simply need to protect your eyes and take care of them. I used to think sunglasses are just for celebrities in Hollywood.Silly me!

It’s the weekend…If you don’t have a pair of sunglasses maybe now is the time to get a pair.If you don’t have extra money to buy a more upscale healthy pair with major UV protection at least try any pair. Did you know your eyes can get a sunburn too?

Get into the habit of wearing sunglasses! Your eyes will appreciate the protection and so will the skin around those beautiful peeps of yours.
