Home Sweet Home Skin Care Remedies…

This cold weather is no fun for my skin and I am sure it isn’t for yours either!!!  The past few weeks I have been experiencing random dryness around my eyes, lips and overall face.  My biggest pet peeve is when make-up doesn’t go on smoothly; dry skin doesn’t help with that . I must find a quick solution to fix this, perhaps some home remedies.

The first person I thought of was my long time friend Jessie Arora, she started an AMAZING skin care line this year and I was lucky enough to get a bunch of samples from her.  I gave her a call and she was kind enough to share her recipe’s with me to post for this blog.

WARNING: Temptation to eat the recipe’s may occur ;)

QUICK FIX

Thinking of going on Vacation during the Winter Months??? Get Beach Ready!!!!

A year ago I was invited to join a wedding reception on a Caribbean Cruise, Ruby Princess.  The date was set Oct 24th to Oct 31 2010, I of course appreciated  that I had a year in advance notice because my work schedule is so busy. I have never been on a Cruise Ship before, we were set to visit four Islands Princess Cays, St. Marteen, St. Thomas & Grand Turks…boy was I excited.

I have to admit that I am a beach bum, I love SUN, SAND, OCEAN & MY SKIN CARE!!!!

I have returned with a very interesting experience and an amazing TAN.  I am Thankful that I got to see such beautiful islands, the weather was 3o+ every day….but I won’t be going on a Cruise anytime soon, BOOOO to sea sickness. Out of all the islands I visited my favorite one was St. Thomas U.S Virgin Islands, it really is picture perfect, Megan Bay is the most beautiful Beach ever the ocean water so blue and clear.

St. Thomas U.S Virgin Islands

Since my return I have had friends asking me how I got a GREAT TAN so I thought to post a blog on my secret.

Here is a list of items I took with me to make this TAN happen:

This Body Polish is a MUST HAVE, use it once a week and when on vacation twice during that week. Your tan last longer and gets a better color when your remove your dead skin cells.

Don't forget about your face :) I exfoliate my face at night before I go to sleep, with this exfoliater I like to leave it on for about 2min and then rinse off.

I prefer this SPF for the face because it is Ultra Sheer and it doesn't go on greasy!

Good for the body ;)

If you want your tan to exelerate a bit more add this product BEFORE your suncreen. This is available at Sally Beauty Supply Store's!

Why not show you my 2 favorite Make-up Products to apply as I am getting ready for dinner or PARTAAY:

Brush all over face with Powder Brush

Golden Bronze Loose Powder...looks amazing on your cheeks, shoulder and legs :D

Me and my TAN!!!

Who would have thought that getting a good tan would have been a process LOL!!!

Happy Vacationing xoxo

Hair This…

I am floored and very impressed with Paul Mitchelle’s NEW Awapuhi Wild Ginger Hair treatment and care line. The packaging and marketing display is beautiful as well, tones of deep rich green.

For centuries, Hawaiian natives have used the fragrant juice of the Awapuhi ginger plant to moisturize skin and hair.  Captivated by the plant”s healing benefits, John Paul DeJoria, Paul Mitchell and friends established a sustainable, solar-powered Awapuhi farm in Hawaii nearly 30 years ago.  Each plant is harvested and processed by hand with special care to preserve its hydrating properties.  Our unique extraction method allows the most lipid-rich part of the Awapuhi root to bind to the hair shaft, leaving hair soft and more manageable with intense shine. – Paul Mitchelle

I had the treatment done last week by Catherine Moreau, Salon Owner of LOKI. She started off by shampooing and conditioning my hair then added a leave in treatment rinsed it out and applying the secret potion and had me sit under a dryer for 5mins…I have to say I felt like a MILLION Dollars and to top it of she blew out my hair making me look like a goddess. My hair felt so soft and hydrated, it is important to have great hair care as it would be to have skin care. I would compare this to a hydrating mask for your face. The very next day my hair continued to feel and look soft and hydrated!!!

Here are the products used:

Shampoo & Conditoner

Intensive Treament and "Secret Potion"

Styling Product (Add before Blow Dry)

Finishing Spray

Ladies I would highly recommend you treat your hair to some REAL GOODNESS the treatment is $35, you can also purchase products to take home but the actual “treatment” is done in Salon.
