Yummy Skin Smoothies

I love to play on my beauty kitchen. And I love to cook too!

Today I craved a smoothie. My avocados 🥑 were over ripe so I decided to whip up an Avocado smoothie with a dash of an apple 🍏 I had leftover. I call this my afternoon delight snack.

What you will need for this recipe:

1 peeled and pitted avocado

2 apple slices

1 cup of milk of your choice

1/8 teaspoon of vanilla

A dash of sugar (optional)

Add ice cubes

Blend above until creamy and smooth.

Good for you! Loaded with vitamins, fiber and fats your body needs.

Sometimes you just CRAVE greens 🥬.

Don’t you?

Sip your veggies! 🥑

If you’ve got an avocado that’s about to go bad or too mushy… make a face & neck mask out of it. Simply mash it up and apply to clean skin.

Leave on your skin at least 10 minutes.

Rinse and add your favorite moisturizer.

Your skin will feel awesome especially after a day at the beach 🏖 or hot summer day.

Love your body and skin with this!

We MISS the good old days with our our clients!

Friday Night IN

Times are not the same. Many of us are on lock down and staying in to keep our world safe and to heal better soon. I MISS date night and spending time with our BFF’S and family. I have NOT seen my family in over a year. It is getting old.

I miss everything we used to enjoy! Don’t you?

So it is only natural we look for things we can do when we are in. I have been doing one D.I.Y. beauty ritual every Friday in the new year so far! I hope you’ll put something together for your face, body and dinner tomorrow night. A recipe for food plus some self care fun. Your sweetie might want to get in on the action too. Guys want to look good too.

I love to share these DIY beauty recipes and ideas with my clients at my makeup studio and they are loving ❤️ to do them too.

2 Tablespoons Raw organic Honey

1 Ripe avocado

1/4 Cup uncooked oatmeal

Mix all of the above together. Apply a bit more than a thin layer to your face,neck and chest. Let it sit on your face and you rest on a bed in place. Listen to your fave music or TV show. Leave on at least 15 minutes.

Wipe your face of the mask and wash with a warm washcloth.

Refresh with a facial toner on a cotton round.

Add eye cream and face and body cream or lotion.

If you have a little fresh avocado leftover. Use the rest and massage it on and comb some on your hair. It will need to be washed but will hydrate this dry ends!
