At times like these we need to take care of our immune system and body too. Since it is summer and we shed our clothes and show more skin we need to also slough off dead skin cells. As well as hydrate the skin on our face and body too. One of my clients shared this recipe with me a long time ago. And I recently discovered it in my pandemic cleaning purge of some paper work etc.
I almost forgot how much I like this recipe alongside eating a bowl of oats or granola with home-made yogurt and fruit in season. To make home-made from scratch yogurt I use Belle + Bella. They have an amazing starter packet and unit to make it. It is fun and when i have leftovers (right) instead of licking the spoon I use the fresh yogurt on my face for a gentle neck and face mask.
She stirs in all ingredients and suggests you take some time in the tub.
Place a handful of the mix onto your body. She recommends paying close attention to rough areas like,elbows,knees, hands and feet. Allow the scrub to rest on your skin. Next she recommends rubbing with warm water and a washcloth or a loofah sponge.
After you get out of the tub. Dry your skin slightly and while damp apply your favorite hand and body lotion.
Your skin will feel soft and fresh you’ll feel brand new!
These two (a lipstick and a blush) I think are a winning combination. They give us a pop 👄 of color and can lift our spirits and even change our mood. We all need a little boost now more than ever. Don’t we?
Pink in any shade gives us a healthy rosy glow!
Something nude, brown or wine just quite won’t do.
Moving forward together into the summer yes we will and should be wearing face covers or masks. We do it to protect others and they protect us to stop the spread of the virus. But when you aren’t wearing a face mask at home or in your own backyard, enjoying your family or enjoying a burger on the grill…. A little color can go a LONG way. I hear from my clients, friends and on TV how people are in a bit of a limbo state and some are depressed. We need to take a moment, enjoy and address by the little things. Don’t give in and get depressed. Surround yourself with beauty while the world is having a moment. Color your attitude.
We need to be our own makeup artist whether in the beauty business or if you are the girl next door,mom or working girl…we owe it to ourselves to be pandemic pretty.
Make the world prettier again with a pretty state of mind and one tube of lipstick and a swipe of blush at a time!
They say wearing PINK can make you look up to ten years younger!
I wanted to share a glass of wine with my husband while in quarantine and decided to take it a bit further. So, being the skin care professional and makeup artist I am I had to make something with a beauty and self caretwist.
