These beauty blunders can add years to your face. Foundation that’s too light – If you use a foundation shade that’s paler than your skin tone it will exaggerate your fine lines and wrinkles. Contact your Independent Consultant to help match your skin tone perfectly with liquid or wet/dry foundation. Too much concealer on dark circles – Our skin under our eyes gets thinner and thinner each year as we age which can make thick concealer look like paste. Keep your concealer light and airy by applying with a brush to distribute the color more evenly. Be sure to only apply to the dark circles, not your entireRead More →
Were you one of the sun goddesses that laid out for hours on end, trying to get that much admired “golden glow”? I was. Well…sort of. I had a deep olive complexion growing up, from a Sicilian heritage on my dad’s side of the family, so I had no trouble getting that “glow” that everyone raved about. It actually only took me a few minutes in the sun to get that look, where other girls would either lay under the sun or in a tanning booth for hours. I was, however, a pool queen. I would swim for hours and hours, so my sun exposure was compounded.Read More →

I’m not one of those women who pays a fortune for skin care, spas, Botox, chemical peels, etc. But I do take really good care of my skin, and I do 99.9% of it at home. The one time I ventured into a spa, I came out looking like Frankenstein because the esthetician thought it was necessary to pop and squeeze every little thing on my face. And then she proceeded to slather me up to theRead More →
Like this? Then share it with your friends! As a lot of you may know, I’m a mobile spa consultant and specialize in at-home spa treatments. The one thing I’m told often is:”I don’t have time to do this every day”. So I’m here ro show you how to pamper yourself in 5 minutes or less in the morning by giving yourself a “Busy Girl Facial”! Normally, when you go to a spa, they wash your face with a cleanser, and then they might apply a scrub. And last but not least, they will probably do some sort of antioxidant mask. I can’t even begin to tellRead More →
Like this? Then share it with your friends! Exfoliation is the big buzz word now, from doctors to hollywood stars. It makes your face feel smooth and look great for a few weeks max. But there’s a way to make that feeling last as long as you’re willing to do some of the work yourself. Basically, if you looked at a plug of your skin, it’s like Grapes, Raisins and Corn Flakes. The Grapes are the plump, moisture filled cells as they’re created. As they start to move to the surface, they lose some of their moisture and resemble Raisins. When they finally get to the surface, they’re completely driedRead More →
Like this? Then share it on Facebook! Did you know that in the summer your skin care regimen may need to change? As we spend more time at water parks, at the beach, in the pool, or at home gardening, the sun and chemicals we’re exposed to change the moisture level and texture of our skin. This means you might have to temporarily change your skin care regimen. Depending on the type of activities you’re doing this summer, you might be exposing your skin to different environmental factors, like chemicals, sun and humidity. If you’re going to water parks this summer, you’re more exposed to the drying effectsRead More →
Most guys weren’t really taught how to take care of their skin, so they think it’s a “woman’s” thing. But I’ll let you in on a secret….women really like nice looking skin. So if you’re out to impress a lady or significant other 😉 then I have the solution: basic skin care for men.
For this post, instead of preaching to you about taking care of your skin, I’d love to tell you a story. This is the story of a real man who refused to use a good skin care regimen because it wasn’t manly enough. If you’re the wife, girlfriend or significant other of a guy that won’t take care of his skin, or if you’re the guy that won’t take care of his skin……..having bad skin is not manly, having good skin IS! Try it, what do you have to lose?
So you think you know what SPF is? I did, until I read an article that told me different. So I started looking into it to see what the real story is. You’d think that with a name like “Sun Protection Factor”, it would mean how much you’re protected from the sun, right? If you do, you’re only 1/2 right.
