Hello May!

I love the month of May! Depending where you live the weathers warming up a bit, the flowers are in bloom and spring really speaks to us.

Flowers are the perfect pick me up!

Fruit and veggies arrive and we can enjoy the freshest ones in season.

It is also a time to remember to ADD even more sunscreen into our daily ritual. A shot glass filled is a great start. If youโ€™re spending time outdoors or at the beach youโ€™ll need to apply it even more.

It is SKIN Cancer Awareness month and this is a reminder donโ€™t forget to wear sunscreen. SPF is the skin care secret for less wrinkled and to stop damaging your skin. The sun ๐ŸŒž can give you skin cancer in rain โ˜”๏ธ or shine.

As a skin cancer SURVIVOR I urge you to do this! Not for me but for YOU and the health of your skin too.

My clients always ask me the secret to having younger looking skin?

Sunscreen, a good nights rest and not going to sleep with makeup on is at the top of my list answer.

My aromatic Spring Cleansing treat!

Have you ever tried doing a facial steam for your skin? It feels so good and leaves your skin refreshed and dewy!

My new favorite skin recipe is to use a small sprinkle a handful of lavender buds, chamomile flowers and rose petals. A little goes a long way. They infuse the water with a light scented facial steam and looks so pretty!

Make a recipe for yourself or you can share with your clients at your spa or beauty business. All you need to do is pick up a few flowers and herbs depending on what you are going to make. Just remember if you have acne, rosacea or sensitive skin issues you might want to skip this beauty recipe.

There are so many choices to make in your kitchen!!!

  • Then all you need is a clean face and a bowl of hot water that you boiled in a pot on the stove top and poured into a glass bowl.
  • I like to use a glass bowl that you can see through. It makes the experience even more delightful.
  • Next, toss a few herbs or flowers of your choice. What are you in the mood for today? * You might even want to try a drop of your favorite essential oil. Like lavender or rose oil.
  • Place your face over the bowl and place a tea towel over your head and not to close.
  • Allow the warm STEAM to rise and to your face.
  • Do this for at least 5 to 10 minutes or until the water cools.
  • Your face will sweat and be damp. A good sign! The dead skin,traces of old makeup and impurities will sweat out.
  • Wash your face with a lukewarm washcloth and follow with and use your fave facial toner or astringent.
  • Apply a few drops of moisturizer and eye cream.
  • Let me know how you like it and any recipes you come up with!

So escape and enjoy a few minutes just for you! My husband even loves to do this too.
