Yes, it can!

It was another long holiday weekend and It was time to do something fun! But since we can’t get out like we usually do we have to do things that make us happy at home too.

Since March I have not touched a face. My beauty cottage is open for pickup orders at our door. And we are happily shipping mail orders. I’m doing virtual events and have already begun getting ready for the holiday season. Yes, it’s important to think about that as business owners.

But back to the fun part! I took some time to enjoy giving myself a natural and Gentle exfoliating facial at home. And I made this tropical drink.

Anti-inflammatory,digestive support and refreshing in a smoothie and as a facial on your face!

Pineapples 🍍 rock!

I love natural beauty and since our immune systems need to stay strong in this time of Covid-19. I’m trying to keep my husband and I and family healthy. In my business I usually serve juice shots which are fresh made juice mini serving drinks. One of my all time fave’s is with pineapple.

Here is what I do for my skin. I cleanse the skin and apply slices of the pineapple directly to the skin. I leave it on the skin at least 20 minutes. Next I rinse my skin and follow up with a rosewater skin toner. It is just a gentle exfoliant and a quick fix on the cheap!

Sipping Pineapple 🍍 Tropical 🌴 Smoothie

Here’s what you will need:

1 cup of fresh or frozen pineapple

1 1/2 cups of coconut 🥥 water

1/2 cup of coconut milk in a can

1 cup of frozen Pitaya dragon fruit

1 cup of frozen peaches

A dash of honey if you’d like!

Place all of the above in your blender. Blend until it’s creamy and dreamy. Sometimes I add a zest or dash of the juice of a lemon or lime.

Adding ice cubes is optional.

Add a drink umbrella ⛱ and you’re all set!

I hope you’ll try my drink recipe and or this easy twist on a facial

FYI

Juice all of the above together.

I discovered this recipe by Celebrity facialist and founder of Joanna Vargas Salon and Skincare Collection. I’ve always wanted to get a facial appointment with her in NYC but always ran out if time as work got in the way!

She promises this recipe revives the mind but gives our complexion a nutrient rich and hydrating boost! She drinks this 4:00 PM for tired skin and tired bodies.

If you’re ever in NYC get an appointment for her iconic facial services.

Pumpkin Pretty D.I.Y.

An you feel the almost arrival of fall?

My husband says “I kiss better than I cook” 😁 But I so enjoy entertaining,cooking and makeup! I also love this time of year and all the decor and recipes to celebrate fall.

So to celebrate 🎊 this time of year here is a recipe to do for YOU and or on your clients too! You’ll be tempted to eat it but don’t. The room will smell divine while and after making this facial treat.

Pretty Pumpkin Pie 🎃 facial mask

What you will need:

1 can of pumpkin pie filling

1 teaspoon of honey

1 sprinkle of nutmeg

1 teaspoon of cinnamon

Stir in all of the above in a bowl. What you will have is a creamy and dreamy gentle natural exfoliation mask. No harsh chemicals. I find even my clients with sensitive skin love to use this and have no issues.

You may use fresh pumpkin but I love using the can in a pinch!

*But please do a patch test on the inside of your arm near your wrist or a section of your face to see if you have a slight reaction. If you have allergies to these ingredients don’t use this D.I.Y.

I like to leave this on at least 10 minutes. Rinse with luke warm water and a washcloth. Afterwards use your facial toner and moisturizer.

Place remains in a small jam or condiments jar you recycled and you can use it again in a few days.

Sip a cold glass of fresh apple 🍎 cider and you’ll make the day even more delicious.

Enjoy!
