Lime,Sugar and Coconut!

I feel like TRAVELING and enjoying life again… I want to go on a cruise! But since we can’t quite do that yet I thought I’d do the next best thing. Make a tropical hand and foot scrub.

Since I LOVE my clients. I am sharing this recipe with them and giving them some mini sample jars of this lovely scrub too.

If you own a business do you love to share recipes and beauty tips with your clients too?

Here is a simple recipe that is so easy to make yet gently exfoliates, brightens the skin and makes the skin so silky!

After all it is sandal season again.

1/4 cup of coconut oil

I LOVE the way this feels on the skin and my heels will look amazing too.

It even refreshes a pedicure and manicure too. Give your hands and feet some love ❤️. Guys will love it too!

Simply apply a scoop of this tropical 🌴 delight on your freshly washed hands and rub in. Go in circular motions. Then rinse with a wet and warm hand towel after leaving on at least 10 minutes.

Next apply to your feet and repeat.

I find this scrub lasts at least a week. I put it in the fridge. I pull out of the fridge and allow it to warm with the room temperature. Feels so cool and refreshing when you apply it. Especially on a hot summer 🌞 day.

Your skin will glow and the natural ingredients make it even better!

TREAT those pretty feet!

Have you ever heard of the Original Pedi-Sox?

Pedicure,yoga,dance class or D.I.Y. at home pedi’s you need this!

I even like to put a foot and heel cream or lotion on and go to sleep in them. If you own a nail salon or spa they are an awesome retail addition.

This winter take the chill off and pamper those dehydrated and not so pretty feet.

Slip on the sox as a final step in the pedicure process, apply toe nail polish. Your feet will stay clean and comfy cozy as moisturizer absorb. Toenails will dry flawless! They can be worn alone or with sandals and year round.

Fun designs, classic favorites and a variety of material weights to suit any desire. My two favorites are the sox with the lips called Lips’n’kisses and the animal print style.

SWAK Pedi-Sox

Wear flip-flops year round,  keep feet clean in Yoga class, or luxuriate the pedicure experience for your next pedicure at the salon.  

If you love getting or doing pedi’s you have to try and experience The Original Pedi-Sox! Worth a look!

Pretty Amazing Papaya Treatment!

I so loved shopping 🛍 and best of all exploring the street markets of fabulous Hong Kong. I love to not only kiss and makeup I also love to create fresh seasonal spa treatments. You can do these at home or in your beauty business.

I noticed a popular trend that is a really an ancient beauty ritual. Papaya soap to brighten and whiten the complexion and creams containing enzyme rich papaya too.

MADE FROM SCRATCH recipe came from me chatting it up with a few sweet senior ladies I came across. They say this easy recipe is skin polishing and brightening and they love to do it too. They like to use this on the hands,the feet or the body. They said MY skin will feel like a baby! They were right.

 What you will need is:

1 cup of pureed Papaya fruit

1/3 or 1/4 cup of coconut oil

1/3 of grapeseed oil ( I added this ingredient to the recipe)

1 cup of raw sugar

1 spray bottle of distilled water

Mix the fruit and oils together than slowly add the sugar  in a bowl.

  • Have the client lay on a plastic sheet. IF you are doing this treatment on her body drape her with a sheet to keep her cozy as you move along. But if you are doing hands and feet you will not need to drape or lay her down completely. Just do the hands and feet. I also used it on my decolette and loved the way my skin looked and felt.
  • Spray the part of the body you want to use it on with some room temperature water.
  • Apply the Papaya Polish and start to rub on the skin.A little goes a long way.

*If you need more sugar add it if you need more water spray on the body.If you need a bit more oil add a dash more and stir.

  • Rinse well with luke warm washcloth or if your spa has a shower have the client rinse  dead skin and her cares away! For another layer of a luxe treat apply a delicious hand and body lotion.

Sometimes I think fresh is truly the best!  EnJOY!
