Tan,Brown,or Black Girls and the SUN

As a beauty professional living in sunny 🌞 Florida I want to  remind you if you’ve got dark skin you may be tempted to skip the sunscreen. But please don’t!

Brown,tan or black girls get sunburn too You can still develop skin cancer as UV rays can give you a sunburn, saggy skin, premature wrinkles and dark spots.

Also did you know you can get skin cancer on your scalp too? Stay protected.

For a beautiful even toned complexion you need to wear a sunscreen!

SPF 15 or higher and with UVA and UVB protection no matter what shade of brown you are. And no matter where you are at an outside cafe or on the beach. Wear it and a lip balm too.

What you need to also do is to wear a cool visor or a blinged out hat 🧢 and wear sunglasses 🕶 too!

Protect and slay that pretty skin you’re in,Beautiful!

My clients are crying as their lips and skin are so dry! But today it is in the 80’s in Florida so go figure I am actually sweating after picking rosemary from my garden for dinner.

Winter is not pretty nor kind to our skin!

So this is what I do for my clients skin OR recommend they give to themselves in a pinch while at home.

Honey Face and Lip MASK

  • Wrap the clients cleansed face with a warm steamed wet towel. Leave the towel on at least 3 minutes allowing the client to relax a bit.
  • Remove the towel.
  • Apply organic honey to the face and neck.
  • Leave on the face at least 10 minutes.
  • Remove the honey mask with a warm wet steamed towel.
  • Follow up with a Rosewater skin toner.
  • Apply a light moisturizer.
  • And a dash of an eye gel.

A sweet simple delight! Your clients will ❤️love!

* Please note: Ask the client if they are allergic to honey or anything ALWAYS do a patch test first. Oh and by the way, you may use this on this lips too. Great for smokers lips,dehydrated lips and peeling flaky lips. Add a dash of organic brown sugar and rub on the lips for an on the cheap lip scrub. My little miracle workers!

Sometimes the simple things found in nature and the farmers market can make all the difference!
