People ask me what is my favorite travel tip for trips for work or play?

I had to create a new one. As I love to fly on an airplane or a quick trip drive outside of the city.

Nowadays I am getting kinda tired of this pandemic and grow restless. At times I feel a bit claustrophobic with a face mask on. So, I make sure BEFORE I leave the house or get on the plane I prep to put on my face mask scented with my favorite essential oil (not craft oils) TRUE essential oils.

My go to brand is made by the company Aura Cacia.

1. First lay out your face mask on the table.

2. Next, I sprinkle on the sides of the mask a drop of lavender oil NOT on the mouth area or near the eyes. More toward the mid cheek area. Both sides.

3. Let the mask 😷 dry. Place mask in baggie and you are ready for anything. POSSIBLE unruly passenger ✈️ on the plane,maybe turbulence, feeling anxious? Or when I’m getting tired of wearing that mask. The aromatherapy 🍃 is quite comforting.

No, it doesn’t make your skin breakout or irritate your skin.

I’ve been offering these type travel tips with my clients at my makeup studio. Now I’m sharing with you. Hope you try it out on your next vacay or mini road trip.

STRESS less. Chill out, keep calm.

Enjoy!

PS

For the return flight ✈️ or trip I already packed and did the above. But this time I added a cotton ball in the baggie with essential oil sprinkled on it. It makes the fragrance last longer and infuses in the baggie. Ready for your return.

After my trip I throw out the disposable mask 😷 but if you are using your fave cloth mask. Travel with two and wash them when you get home.

Happy Travel!

Hello May!

I love the month of May! Depending where you live the weathers warming up a bit, the flowers are in bloom and spring really speaks to us.

Flowers are the perfect pick me up!

Fruit and veggies arrive and we can enjoy the freshest ones in season.

It is also a time to remember to ADD even more sunscreen into our daily ritual. A shot glass filled is a great start. If you’re spending time outdoors or at the beach you’ll need to apply it even more.

It is SKIN Cancer Awareness month and this is a reminder don’t forget to wear sunscreen. SPF is the skin care secret for less wrinkled and to stop damaging your skin. The sun 🌞 can give you skin cancer in rain ☔️ or shine.

As a skin cancer SURVIVOR I urge you to do this! Not for me but for YOU and the health of your skin too.

My clients always ask me the secret to having younger looking skin?

Sunscreen, a good nights rest and not going to sleep with makeup on is at the top of my list answer.
