Give yourself a Super Smile this spring!💋

IMG_2960.JPGIf you want a fresh new look this spring...change up your spring beauty routine when it comes to brushing your teeth. I like and use other toothpastes but always come back to this brand. And they have two NEW flavors for Spring!

Berry Chill and Coconut Key Lime Mint these are the HAPPIEST flavors and the tube is pretty eyecatching too. It makes me want to brush my teeth even more!

I am totally in love with SuperSmile a brand created by Dr. Irwin Smigel...the father of cosmetic dentistry who created the FIRST tooth whitening toothpaste!

These new flavors offer the same amount of 6 shades of when used with the Supersmile whitening accelerator. But I often use the toothpaste for it’s star ingredient Calprox. The unique way you use the toothpaste is on a DRY 😁toothbrush.

I saw results in a few days. And then they continued on. Just remember EVERYTHING we eat stains or tints our teeth. Like skin care you have to be consistent and used on a regular day and night basis.

The company says maximum results, 6 shades whiter is achieved in 30 days. Great for healthier gums too.

So maybe it’s time for you to discover a new way of brushing and have a healthier pretty smile too! SMILE BRIGHTER

Kitchen Beauty

photo River city live 8-2017.JPGFriday on a pop culture and entertainment show here in sunny Florida called River City Live TV I shared some of my signature beauty secrets from the kitchen or your own backyard. I thought you would enjoy them!

Make a facial steam bath…to open up your pores and sweat!

Your skin will love it. Make a pot of tea water…fill a glass bowl with some of that hot water.Rub herbs in palm of your hand a bit.Place sprigs of rosemary OR fresh spearmint inside the bowl of steamy water. Allow time for it to float and infuse the aromatics from the herb.  You can also try this D.I.Y. with other fresh herbs from your fridge or garden. Place your face near the bowl and let the steam (not water) hit your face.Do this for at least 5 minutes. Rinse your face well and use your fav’ face toner and a light moisturizer next.

In a pinch and don’t have any facial scrub at home?

Try using cornmeal from your pantry!

Take a spoonful and place in a little dish. Add some water. Make a little liquid  grain like paste. Apply on a clean face and work in gentle circular motions. Stay away from your eyes and lips. Leave on for a couple of minutes and rub again gently. I like to do this on my T-zone. Rinse well and follow up with your facial toner.This is not only great for the pores but also great for dry flaky skin as a natural exfoliant.

Got stress?

A kitchen rolling pin isn’t just for baking darlingsGet it out and have your sweetie release the stress on your back and or back of legs. Use with gentle strokes.It really does wonders. Use a dash of olive or sunflower oil for some massage oil slip (like massage therapists use). I like it better than on dry skin. When you can’t see your massage therapist this works!

Roses aren’t just good to decorate your house with they also make a floral delight for your eyes. In place of cucumbers a rose petal has soft hydrating properties. They say ancient Chinese royalty loved to do this. I prefer organic roses. All you do is take a petal and place one on each side. Rest your eyes and listen to some music or enjoy the quiet in the room.Now, remove the petals and enjoy softer skin.

I LOVE making fruit or vegetable infused water.…and drink it all day. Better than coffee or sodas and they quench your thirst and make your skin happy too. On TV I showed the viewers how to make a personal bottle of this water. I found an adorable glass with a straw built in and keep it on my desk or work area.

1 container or large pitcher of spring water

1 fresh organic kiwi sliced

1 sprig of  fresh mint

ANOTHER version simply add wedges of oranges.

Allow them to set in pitcher for at least an hour or more. This lets the above make love together and makes the water taste great. Enjoy!

*Drink at room temperature. That’s what a lot of doctors say is best to do. Not ice cold.

Remember my philosophy is not all things have to come from a store…making it yourself is fun and kinda therapeutic. I hope you’ll let me know of any ideas or recipes you like to do too! I LOVE hearing from you.

xoxo

I love to use plain Greek yogurt on my face as a mask and also like to use FarmHouse Freshgoods,Pajama Paste…Have a pajama party with your friends and mask yourself pretty too!

What is SPF?

photo.JPG SUNSCREEN

SPF stands for sun protection factor and is a measure of the sunscreen’s ability to prevent UV rays from damaging the skin.

It takes 10 minutes for your skin to turn red when you are out in the sun,with SPF50 you can stay out in the sun 50 times longer before you begin to burn.Isn’t that amazing?

Don’t FRY NOW and PAY LATER!

What is a UV RAY? I know it sounds confusing but here is an easy answer. “UV” stands for ultraviolet rays. These invisible rays are a part of the energy that comes from the sun and can damage the skin,causing melanoma and other types of skin cancer.

UVA RAYS

Cause lasting skin damage,skin aging,& skin cancer.

UVB

Cause sunburns,sun damage and skin cancer.

I love a walk on the beach and had my days in the sun BUT… Take it from me I’ve had skin cancer.Protect Your skin!

Please COVER UP, Buttercup!

*I featured all kinds of products for practicing safe sun and getting a safe pretty tan.You can follow me at http://www.news4jax.com Type in my name NOREEN YOUNG in the search bar and video will come up!

Hot Red Mess!

aloe ice tray
I was on TV on a Morning Show again last Saturday and wanted to share with you a recipe from my TV segment.
I showed “Beauty rescues for beauty dilemmas”.
It is so hot yet people continue to play in the sun and strive for that sun kissed golden glow. But sometimes that fun in the sun turns into a HOT RED MESS sunburn. Your skin is on fire and you need to cool it down.

First doctors recommend taking an aspirin to cool your body heat down. If you can’t take aspirin ask your doctor about another form.

Next, BEFORE your skin really starts to itch and peel you need to take some inexpensive Aloe Vera gel, CVS DRUG store will work fine. It does not need to be expensive. Take an ice cube tray and fill in the empty cube section with ALOE Vera gel. Make sure it’s fresh and NOT last years bottle from your medicine cabinet. Freeze over night or at least a few hours. Pull out tray and check to see if is ready when you are. They freeze in my freezer pretty fast for me.

On clean skin apply the Aloe Vera ice cube and rub gently on affected areas.
It can be used on the face or entire body down to your toes. This is not only cool but will make your skin feel AMAZING and cool the heat. It will also help stop the chance or limit the time you have peeling, dry or itchy skin from the red sunburn.

I love Aloe for that unexpected KITCHEN BURN too and keep a fresh potted plant growing of it near my kitchen door.

Clear Aloe Vera gel can also act as a face primer when you have a burn or allergic reaction to something. I have even used it around my eye area. A little dab will do you.

This magical plants gel can also be used to help fight acne.

Aloe Vera gel is said to be good for insect bites, scalds and to heal blisters from our sky high stilettos!

Aloe Vera juice is a great stomach soother and if you have ACID REFLUX it can do wonders for your digestive tract. It also helps people with stomach ulcers, constipation and has detoxifying effects.

Buy a plant today and keep healthy the natural way!
