It’s glow time the start of the summer season is the best time of the year! We get to enjoy longer days, sunshine and more! You also get to go shopping 🛍 for a few new things like a new bathing suit, sun hat, pretty sandals and fun or sexy sunnies.
It’s also the time to start to get your glow on! You know a little bronzer and shimmer go a long way.
But first you must exfoliate your face and body. There are many options to choose from for your skin.
I’m in love with a bottle of CURE Natural Aqua Gel from Japan. (available on Amazon) it exfoliates gently and really makes the skin feel great and products to penetrate and work better on your skin!
This is my bottle at home. I’m about to use it to get ready for a guest speaking engagement. Gotta look my best. I have sensitive skin and have no issues with it. It works wonders!
Dry brushing your body is a must! I like to use both methods. Bye bye dull dry skin!
So get going! What are you waiting for? Get a head start on that tan or just want to have healthier pretty skin! EXFOLIATE.
Here’s a reminder I always tell my clients when they use self tanner or get a spray tan.
Two things…Exfoliate your skin first!
I also follow this up with a sheet mask on my face and décolleté.
I am crazy about an exfoliate brand from Japan available in the US. It is called Cure Natural Aqua Gel. It is a clear gel that you apply on clean skin.
This is a must for self tanner to look good. It also is a good idea for any makeup you wear to glide on like silk!
After you apply you let it dry and leave on at least 3 minutes.
And gently roll off/ sloughing and saying bye to those dead skin cells. Rinse well.
I also love to use this product on a photo shoot and on a bride or bridal party working on location.
It is so easy to use. No harsh granuals and can even be used under the eye area.
I have very sensitive skin but this product gives me only fabulous non irritating results. Natural! Check them out on Instagram. That’s how I discovered them.
You must up that shade of foundation or even tinted moisturizer hue OR your neck and chest will not match nor be even in tone.
I see so many girls miss the mark on this and the look isn’t very pretty! You’ll have a lighter neck and tan face and body. Sometimes you might need to buy another darker foundation as well.
As we roll into the summer think about keeping a safe tan and not bake like a dozen cookies 🍪 in the oven. They smell and taste great … can burn too. And as for a tan the end result you may develop more than a tan. As a skin cancer survivor. I know.
My husband says “I kiss better than I cook” 😁 But I so enjoy entertaining,cooking and makeup! I also love this time of year and all the decor and recipes to celebrate fall.
Today I went to the store and discovered a potpourri of pumpkins 🎃 and more.
So to celebrate 🎊 this time of year here is a recipe to do for YOU and or on your clients too! You’ll be tempted to eat it but don’t. The room will smell divine while and after making this facial treat.
Pretty Pumpkin Pie 🎃 facial mask
What you will need:
1 can of pumpkin pie filling
1 teaspoon of honey
1 sprinkle of nutmeg
1 teaspoon of cinnamon
Stir in all of the above in a bowl. What you will have is a creamy and dreamy gentle natural exfoliation mask. No harsh chemicals. I find even my clients with sensitive skin love to use this and have no issues.
You may use fresh pumpkin but I love using the can in a pinch!
*But please do a patch test on the inside of your arm near your wrist or a section of your face to see if you have a slight reaction. If you have allergies to these ingredients don’t use this D.I.Y.
I like to leave this on at least 10 minutes. Rinse with luke warm water and a washcloth. Afterwards use your facial toner and moisturizer.
Place remains in a small jam or condiments jar you recycled and you can use it again in a few days.
Sip a cold glass of fresh apple 🍎 cider and you’ll make the day even more delicious.
