Using sunless tanner?

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.

Next…

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.

Buy a darker foundation!

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.

Pumpkin Pretty D.I.Y.

An you feel the almost arrival of fall?

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.

Enjoy!
