Relax with seaweed

From “20,000 leagues under the sea” comes the ultimate skincare ingredient.. seaweed. That dreaded things that tends to float around at the beach that gets in the way, is one of the best regimens you can do to your skin. It improves elasticity, texture and can help diminish acne. I also have found that if you have dry skin it adds moisture if your overly oily it takes away just some of the excess.

Many of us now this already but I just wanted to share my recent “seaweed” experience using hot water and a seaweed sheet. These seaweed sheets can be found in your seafood section of your local supermarket. Tear off a section about the size of 2 fingers. Set it in the hot water just long enough to make it soft. Once it has soaked start taking the seaweed and spread it on your face. Some of the seaweed will stay behind, so you may look a little funny. Leave on for 5 minutes and rinse.

After it is rinsed off you can really feel the tightness coming in your skin and feeling refreshed. You may even feel that your skin has been exfoliated and less “gritty”. You can really feel the seaweed working even after it has been rinsed off. I enjoy doing an at home seaweed mask at least twice a week. So next time you need some “me time” pour yourself a glass of wine, and dive “20,000 leagues under the sea” with your at home, inexpensive seaweed facial. Have fun!

One little tip. Before putting the mask on allow some hot water to open your pores so that the seaweed can really dig down deep. Then rinse with cool water to close the pores holding everything in.

“Gold” with a “Curly Twist”

Soft, bouncy, frizz free curls are right at your fingertips with Goldwell Curly Twist Dual Senses line. I hated my curly hair growing up and could never seem to get it to do what I wanted it to. On top of that having a dry scalp and sensitive skin made it even harder. Goldwell not only cleansed and conditioned the curls but soothed the itchy scalp as well.

A few weeks ago a friend of mine was telling me how she used to be an educator for Goldwell and having not been to familiar with the line I wanted to find out more. In the very first use of the Curly Twist line I noticed a difference. Hair was softer, curls were more bouncy and the beautiful shine with no greasy feel. The best part, all the excess product was gone. The shampoo, conditioner and the mask treatment became my lifesaver to get my curls back to normal.

I do not wash my hair everyday, and so on those days I use my 60 second mask treatment from Curly Twist. This helps strengthen and add lustrous bounce to the curls. I couldn’t believe it only needed 60 seconds to work! WOW! After I rinse it our and dry it I spray the 2-1 leave in 2-phase spray. This adds extra elasticity to the curl and helps aid in styling.

I cannot express enough about the entire Goldwell Curly Twist line. We would be here all night haha! Goldwell is sold in exclusive salons all around the world and to see where you too can get it, and for more info on the products check out www.goldwell.us

Eliminate Acne & Reduce Cellulite With This Quick DIY Exfoliator

After running out of my favorite exfoliator I became desperate to find one that worked just as well. Of course when I went to the store they were out of my favorite so I did the next best thing, made my own out of ingredients found in my cabinet. In my video I share how to make a great anti-aging coffee ground (caffeine helps eliminate cellulite and maintains elasticity in your skin) exfoliator that I have also found to help clear my acne. With other ingredients such as honey (natural antibacterial method), salt ( releases toxins from body) and olive oil (adds moisture, eliminates appearance of fine lines and wrinkles) this great exfoliator will make you feel refreshed and invigorated after every use.

See my how-to DIY video below!
