Need a Lift?

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!

PS

They say wearing PINK can make you look up to ten years younger!

 

 

Drink Up!

We’re headed into another long weekend! 🌴🌞So looking forward to chilling away. If your business is open maybe you can serve something refreshing. Or simply enjoy this recipe at home with your family. I so love to entertain CLIENTS.family and friends. I even wrote a book on it Entertaining in your Salon or SPA.

Strawberry Mango Lemonade

Blend and give it a whirl with 1 cup of  frozen strawberries, 2 cups of frozen mango chunks and 2 cups of lemonade that you made.Or cheat and use store bought already made.

This recipe makes 4 glasses of refreshing and delicious lemonade. More if you use smaller glasses.

Garnish with a pineapple chunk for a tropical twist. Since we can’t quite getaway at least we can pretend we are with a few of life’s simple treasures.

Stay hydrated!

When did you get your last one?

It is skin cancer awareness month and it is time to remind ourselves to pick up a new tube of your fave sunscreen.

No, last years Sunscreen 🧴 tube won’t work. Old, once opened or if stored in a bright, warm or hot place it has lost its potency to protect. The formulas not the same. You need to start fresh!

People in Florida have begun to go to the beach 🏖 again and signs They have been there are are showing. I see red lobster 🦞 faces, peeling faces, dry inflamed skin. It isn’t very pretty as they race to chase the sun and a bit of color. I realize people are restless. A pandemic isn’t much fun is it?

But SKIN CANCER is probably worse. Especially if it is Melanoma. Skin cancer can be fatal. Protect that baby and your children and your own skin! DAILY not just during skin cancer awareness month. While you are at it call your dermatologist and book your annual exam. Mine is booked later this month.

If you own a spa, salon or beauty business and you’re back open again or have an online shop. Consider retailing sun 🌞 protection. Sunscreen & Bronzer are a winning combination!

I often hear women ask… What is your beauty secret for looking younger? Or I want to look younger fast! What can I do?

I think you know the answer. Skin cancer is a sneaky disease. Arm yourself! Please wear SUNSCREEN and throw on some shade too! 😎

You CAN enjoy the sunshine. You just need to do it wisely.

I want to share some awesome beauty secrets with you.

To all my followers in the SPA and beauty business:

The International Esthetics Cosmetics and Spa Conference in the one and only NYC and the International Beauty Show have come and gone.But they were both cancelled before it even began. The Governor declared the city that never sleeps a state of emergency. This Covid-19 virus is taking a toll on all our lives and for the sake of attendees, vendors and educators health … it was best for the company to cancel the show.

It was going to be an awesome conference. The massive show floor. The classes from an amazing array of educators!

I so wanted to bring the best of skin and beauty and all that’s NEW back to you!

But the FABULOUS good news they are rescheduling the show for 2020!!!

Stay tuned for INFORMATION  and dates and more.
