Organic Skin Care Tips

Some of the best and most cost-effective skin and hair products are natural ingredients that are also environmentally friendly. Instead of using a harsh astringent to clear out pores after you wash your face, try using witch hazel instead. It is much less abrasive but provides the same cleansing and antiseptic properties. Once pores have been thoroughly cleaned, whip up an egg white and chill it for 5 minutes. Then apply it evenly to skin for a few minutes and feel those pores tighten and shrink.

To keep hair looking bright, add 2 tablespoons of lemon juice to lukewarm water for an after-conditioning rinse. If it’s been a long day and the eyes are looking tired soak a couple green tea bags in cool water then apply to eyes while you relax for a few minutes. The naturally-occurring caffeine will tighten under-eye skin in no time.

A little baking soda on your toothbrush can whiten teeth as well as fingernails with a gentle scrub. Be sure to rinse well though. These quick and easy fixes already exist in most homes, we just forget to give them a chance in a new role sometimes. Give it a try!

Sparkling Smiles

A smile may be one of the most attractive facial features we as humans have. It’s also one of the first things that people notice about you when you meet and greet. In order to have a dazzling smile, start with a healthy mouth. Brushing, flossing, and rinsing should be daily habits for everyone both at morning and at night. Choosing products with whitening agents such as baking soda or peroxide can help to reduce discoloring and prevent further stains. In addition, there are several products out there to help whiten teeth for all budgets. From $5 gels like 5-Minute Whitening to $40 Crest Whitening Strips, you can find an at-home product to use regularly. Be sure to follow the instructions and discontinue use if sensitivity occurs.

Once the inside of the smile is healthy and happy, make sure the frame is in good shape as well. When brushing your teeth, gently brush over lips to remove any dead skin cells. Even if you do not wear lip color, be sure to protect lips with a gloss or chapstick that contains an SPF of 15 or higher. Blistex has a great line of lip protection that offers a tiny bit of natural color, a little sparkle and even age-defying nutrients. Once your smile is prepped and ready to go, use it often and with everyone you meet.

Smooth Shaving

shaving tipsI’m not sure who decided that smooth, hair-free legs were the sexy way to go, but it is the standard now. I do love the way my legs feel just after a good shave, but the process of getting those soft, smooth stems isn’t always as pleasant. Start with quality products that you are comfortable with. Choose a razor with wire guards and a lubricating strip of some kind. Make sure the grip is comfortable for you. Then choose a shaving lotion, cream, gel that you like. Most products are created equally, so just pick one.

I actually prefer to shave with hair conditioner rather than a shaving cream. It seems to condition and moisturize my skin better and is A LOT cheaper per use. Always allow your hair/skin to soak in warm water for a few minutes before you begin shaving. Shaving in the opposite direction of the hair growth will earn you a closer shave. Go slowly, pay attention, and be sure to moisturize when you are finished.

Quick and Easy Hair

The most important tip for quick and easy hair is to allow your hair to be itself. The more we fight what nature has given us, the more frustrated we get and the longer our daily hairstyling routine takes. It’s just a rule of human nature to want what you don’t have sometimes and envy the perfect tresses of your best friend, but just remember that she is usually just as envious of your hair as you are of hers. Your hair is what it is, so start learning to work with it instead of against it.

Experiment once or twice on a day at home with this and see what you get. After your shower, gently comb out your hair, flip your head over, give it a gentle shake or finger toss, then flip it back over. Notice where it naturally wants to part and land and go from there. No matter what your hair type, take a little dab of Biosilk and work it through you hair, starting at the ends. Allow your hair to air dry and see what you get. Learning how to use this as your starting point and accentuating your natural beauty will take significant time off your daily beauty routine. Plus, a natural beauty is always more attractive.

Must-try Products

We all have our go-to products that travel with us, always are at our fingertips on the vanity, or that we recommend to friends without hesitating. Here are a few to keep in mind:

1. Neutrogena On the Spot acne treatment. This little tube is a lifesaver, especially for the blemish prone of us. At the first sign of a bump or blemish, dab on a dot, massage in completely, and go. It usually will eliminate the pimple in two to three applications. So if you see the zit Friday morning, it can be gone by Friday night. Amazing!

2. Revlon Blowdryer/Round brush Combo. I love this hair styling tool. It’s a handheld blow dryer with 2 different sized round brush attachments. It eliminates multiple steps in the hairstyling process by allowing you to dry and smooth or dry and curl at the same time with one hand. Whether you prefer smooth locks or big sexy curls, this is a must for everyday styling.

3. 5-Minute White teeth whitening system. This is an incredibly inexpensive and simple to use product. For less than $5 at most drug stores, you get the gel, tray, and pre-rinse. Add a little of the gel to the flexible rubber tray, insert it and go about the rest of your morning beauty routine. By the time your hair or make-up is done, your teeth are brighter and whiter than before.

Beautiful Body Skin

Many of us spend a lot of time and money making sure that the skin on our faces is protected, clear, and beautiful. But what about the rest of your skin? Your skin is the largest organ you have and all of it deserves to be treated with great care. This is especially true in the summer when we are showing more skin than any other time of year. In order to keep yourself beautiful from head to toe, start by using an exfoliating sponge, loofah, or bath puff for your daily cleansing.

There are also some great exfoliating body washes on the market at very reasonable prices. Try the Suave exfoliating body wash with shea butter for deliciously smooth skin. Once you have removed the dead and dulling skin cells, be sure to moisturize after the bath or shower. There are several “healthy glow” type lines available now that provide quality moisture plus an added tint of color to the skin. Just make sure to apply these products evenly and air dry for a bit before dressing.

Lip Tips. Are you smooch ready?

Pucker up and get ready for those perfectly smooch able lips! Applying lipstick, stain, or gloss can be a challenging task but not if you use some of these helpful tips.

If you are using lipstick, use a bolder color and toned down makeup on the rest of your face to make your lips pop. Using the pointy end of the lipstick tube can help you outline your lips if you don’t have time for lip liner. Just be careful not to smear it onto your teeth.

With lip stain it is easy to get the right amount of coverage and it has that built in shininess. It’s great for a quick and pretty look. I would suggest using a lighter color and focus the rest of your makeup super powers on your eyes.

Lip gloss is always fun no matter what your age, but  especially for teens. If you apply a shiny or sparkly gloss focusing on the center of your lips, it can make them look bigger. People’s eyes will be drawn to the middle of your lips which is the biggest part of them. This optical illusion is sure to help anyone who has been deprived of lip plumpness.

Pretty in Pink – Teen tips for applying blush

Smile big for those pretty pink cheeks! I’m talking about blush of course.

The easiest way to put blush on in the right spot is to smile. When you smile you can see that your cheeks get big and round, how pretty! Use a big brush with the blush on it and just brush it over your cheeks. Start at the edge of your cheek that is closest to your nose and swoosh it toward about an inch or two in front of your ear. Make sure most of the color is on your cheeks and not the side of your face.

To pick the right color just look in a mirror and decide what your skin tone is, light, fair, medium, olive, tan, brown, dark brown, or black. Then decide what color cheeks would stand out on your face without drawing all of the attention away from your eyes and lips. Your cheeks should be a subtle beauty, but there are many ways to add to that beauty.

To get defined cheekbones, smile put a hint of lightly colored bronzer in a ” U ” shape framing the bottom side of your cheeks. You can also add a hint of highlighter on the top side of your cheeks. Apply the blush last if you are adding in these extra steps.  Make sure it is all very blended!

Baby Lips

Baby Lips #beautytips #makeupI came across this wonderful lip balm recently called Baby Lips.  This is a PERFECT product for teens and pre-teens who want to have beautiful lips without wanting to look like they are all made up.  My 13-year-old assistant loves this lip balm, and I have to admit that I do too!

It adds just a touch of color to your lips while making them baby soft (what else?!), AND it has SPF protection to keep your kisses soft and protected. It comes in several flavors.

Mermaid Nails

Mermaid Nails #makeup #beauty #nailart #nails

Here is some more beautiful nail art created by my 13-year-old beauty assistant! She did these nails herself.

She started with a clear base coat , then two layers of blue glitter nailpolish.   Using a dotting tool (you can make one with a straight pin stuck into a pencil eraser), create small dots near the base of the nail in light blue, yellow, white and pink.   Cover it all with a clear top coat and you’ll have a magical nail design that will make you ready to swim with mermaids!
