Oh those winter feet!

Tonight I felt like giving my winter feet 🦶 a sweet treat. You can do it too. This recipe is easy to make and quick to do.

I made a DIY pretty aromatic orange 🍊 scrub with these simple ingredients:

1/2 cup of white sugar

1/2 cup of sunflower 🌻 oil

5 drops of orange essential oil

You’ll love 🧡 this skin softening elixir.

Mix the sugar and the oil together in a bowl. Lastly add the essential oil. If you don’t have the actual orange essential oil… A squeeze of an orange 🍊 can work for scent sake.

But the essential oil is best.

Apply on the heels and soles of the feet. Rubbing between the toes and on the toe nail bed.

Leave on 10 minutes or more. Rinse well with a luke warm wash cloth.

Then add your favorite hand and body lotion or foot cream.

Enjoy softer and exfoliated feet. Your tired and winter skin will appreciate the 🧡 love!

Time to celebrate…the Lunar New Year way!

It has been a busy few days getting ready for Chinese New Year 🧧 in my personal life and in my beauty business. I love celebrating the beauty of every single day!

Yesterday I did and featured a fun segment on TV 📺 chatting it up on all things lunar new year.

Chinese New year is a 15 day celebration I didn’t want another day to go by without sharing one of my beauty secrets… Asian Rice Powder.

It is a fierce and fabulous multi-tasking beauty product!

Looks like a square chocolate brownie only it’s white in color. It reduces shine on your T-zone and makes your makeup last longer. It also makes keeps your makeup shades from turning orange. You know what I mean? Sometimes people have issues with that from their body chemistry. Very frustrating! Their foundation colors, powder or blush turns a not so pretty darker and orange like hue.

It is an iconic beauty powder that is centuries old. Not a powder from Japan theater 🎭 or used by geisha’s. It’s light and lovely. In fact people love the delicate floral scent.

Years ago I turned my clients on to this! Especially brides-to-be, brides and bridal parties.

Just Press and Glow!

I feel like a lab rat this month. Testing lotions, potions and throwing out the old products I’m not using anymore. Yes, it is that time of year. if you’re not wearing that colored mascara anymore or hot pink lipstick you tired but hated you gotta say Goodbye!

In my cleaning, playing and editing my beauty and skincare I wanted to share one tool I’m obsessed with! Created and manufactured by an esthetician and speaker in the spa industry who wanted to improve her skin! But wanted a device that would be safe, easy to use and a one tool wonder to use and not clutter up the bathroom counter or vanity. Yes, I still love my jade and agate face and eye rollers BUT this is the Rolls-Royce of beauty tech tools to look your best.

The skin care tool is called My Skin Buddy. You can use and enjoy the ease of six convenient ready-to-go settings with so many benefits! Safe and easy to use. I must admit when I first used it on myself I was afraid. It buzzed and lit up my face and the room and I was scared of it. Silly me! I didn’t realize it can’t hurt me. It would be my skins BFF.

It compliments ANY skincare brand and complexion. No plastic surgery needed.

It has 4 proven technologies!

LED light therapy

ION care

Ultrasonic vibration

Heat therapy

All to help you achieve a clearer, brighter and even skin tone and a more youthful appearance.

We can’t stop the aging process it is happening daily 24/7 to all of us. But if you want to look fresher and your best. You might want to consider owning one of these!

💋💋💋Bonus:

You know I am all about the LIPS and lipstick. It is my favorite part of the face to make up! Using it can even actually plump your lips and make them look smoother and a fuller. No needles needed. It also is wonderful for smokers lips and the skin around the lips. It even makes your lips look rosier and healthier.

Check them out at http://www.myskinbuddy.com

And don’t forget to take the time to go over ALL the beauty and skin care products and tools and some may need to be thrown out and replaced. Even though you are not ready to.

It is January and a brand new year. Start FRESH and stay healthy!

Exhausted …Did you shop till you dropped?

After the long Thanksgiving weekend it’s time to relax. Give yourself a soothing foot 🦶 bath for legs and feet! I worked away in my studio helping clients pick out the perfect gift 🎁 and reminded them to not forget themselves too.

I can tell. My feet and legs are exhausted. So. When time allows. Maybe you want to do this.

What you will need for this recipe:

6 Green tea bags

1 thick slice of fresh ginger peeled

2 drops of peppermint oil

A pot of water 💦 boiled.

Add the above ingredients into the pot. Like you’re making pasta but you’re not.

Let the ingredients mesh and dance together in the pot. Allow the water to cool a bit.

Place in a foot basin. Soak your feet and take a hand towel and dip it into the mixture. Wrap around the legs for about three minutes as well.9

The ginger adds some aromatic heat, the peppermint oil is very relaxing and invigorating at the same time. The green tea soothes tired skin. Do this at least 15mins. Or when water is cool.

Afterwards. Rinse. apply your favorite body lotion on your legs and feet. Rest your cares away. Get cozy in bed.

I love ❤️ to treat myself or my husband to this treat for the feet.

Loving all things fall! 🍁

How about you?

It’s cooler weather and I so love ❤️ fall. I’ve been traveling a bit. The airports are so busy it is so good to be out and about again. Wow how the country is looking amazing with the change of leaves!

Getting my business ready for the holiday season and enjoying life one day at a time.

So they say… “An apple a day keeps the doctor away!”

I have been in awe with the beauty of the changing fall leaves, eating an apple a day, sipping apple cider, cozying up to an apple 🥧pie and enjoying the beauty secret in apples.

You asked me if I have a recipe for a face mask with apples and I’ll share one of my faves below.

🍎Do you know apples can fill you up? Sort of like drinking a tall glass of water 💦before a meal. Fills you up fast before you eat.

🍎Eating Apples (with the skin on) are especially good for you.

🍎 I mentioned before in a post I love to make fruit infused water with small slices of red and green apples. Adding a sprinkle of cinnamon sugar makes it extra delicious.

🍎 Apples make a great natural face mask not found in a jar on a store shelf. Fun to make and enjoy with your BFF or family too.

Here’s what you will need:

2 tbsp of crushed oats

1 red or green apple

1 tsp of organic local honey

Mix the above and add grated or puréed apples in a bowl.

Apply to the face and leave on at least 15 minutes. Rinse well with warm water.

Next apply your fave facial moisturizer and eye gel

The oats in this recipe exfoliate the skin gently. The apples and honey give you plump abs glowing skin. Vitamin C rich and Vitamin A too. Boosts collagen too.

Do you love natural beauty recipes too?

Share with me I’d love to hear any of yours too!

I love eating 🍉 watermelon day or night. It just is so refreshing and I love the way it feels on the tongue. Every juicy bite is a delight!

I also love ❤️ to use it in summer 🥗 salads.

COOL Watermelon 🥥 Pick Me Up

What you will need for this drink:

1 cup of coconut water

1 SPARKLING water

Juice of one lime

Mashup or muddle a few fresh mint leaves 🍃

1/2 cup of cucumber 🥒 peeled and sliced into thin rounds. Not chunky.

Place mixture in a blender or in a couple of tall glasses filled with ice.

Add a 1/2 cup of sparkling water 💦 into each glass.

Garnish with whatever you’d like. Mint leaves, cucumber slice or a tropical 🌴 drink umbrella.

Another way I like to serve watermelon juice is fresh squeezed from a blender and sometimes I like to add a spray of whip cream on top!

You haven’t lived until you tasted watermelon juice with whip cream on top! Crazy good.

Before the pandemic I served this to my clients in shot glasses. Just a taste! What a fun summer treat.

So refreshing and delicious.

Make a toast and drink your way to glowy skin!

🍉Did you know Asian women love to eat watermelon?

AND… Some woman and their daughters have been taught by their elders how to use the rind inside after you eat it and rub it on clean skin. They feel it makes their skin feel and look amazing.

Try it you just might like it!

Hope you’re having an awesome summer! 🏖
