Great Hydrating Products Argan Oil & Cream

I found a gem treatment for skin and hair called Argan, which is a wonderful enriching cream that penetrates the skin and adds moisture. The oil is great for the hair. The thing I liked about the cream it is that it feels like it actually penetrates into the skin and not just stays  on top like some creams.  It is also 100% pure and organic!argan oil cream

Argan oil is found only in some regions of the North African Continent Derived from the fruit of a tree called L’Arganier. From that tree the oil is extracted with multiple benefits which for centuries has enriched us by its incomprable efficacy.

Argan oil is rich in Vitamin A, Vitamin E, Omega 3, Omega 6 and linoleic acid. it is rich in tocopherols, an is a powerful anti-oxidant, able to neutralize free radicals and oxidation reactions and therefore is used externally to rejuvenate and hydrate wrinkled skin and skin damaged by time and sun exposure.

Argan oil protects the skin from exposure to the elements. it nourishes and regenerates in depth for a better elasticity of the skin. It has anti-aging properties. at the inter-cellular level it challenges and stimulates the oxygen exchange. Argan oil regenerates the epidermis and soothes skin irritations. It softens the hair. It helps in the treatment of acne, chicken pox, burns, chapping and the prevention of stretch marks.

For All Things Star Studded…

I got the inside scoop on all hair and makeup tips. Celebrity Makeup Artist Marina Gravani created Mariah Carey’s Sun-Kissed makeup look for Jermaine Dupry’s party. See how you to can create this look at home.

 

MARINA’S PREP TIPS: “Make sure to visit a European Wax Center for waxing at least 2 days before an event or your makeup won’t hold on the area you waxed”  

 

FACE: First, Marina applied oil-free primer to her skin.  Next, she mixed two silky cream foundations to create a natural looking hue.  She set the foundation using powder, but very lightly. Marina then applied bronzer to her cheek bones and around her face. Finally, Marina applied a hint of pink blush on her cheeks and across her nose.

 

EYES: For Mariah’s eyes, she started by applying concealer to her eyelids.  Next, Marina added a warm neutral toned shadow all over lid stopping at the crease. Marina then mixed different matte browns to blend into her crease and added black shadow to the corner of the eye to create a smokey effect. Next, she applied a thin line to Mariah’s eye and applied lashes using European Wax Center Tweezer Kit (SLANT) (to make her eyes pop on stage). Marina then applied a soft shadow through her lashes to balance out the eye. Finally, Marina applied European Wax Centers Natural Brow Powder in Milano where needed.

 

LIPS: For Mariah’s lips, Marina used a neutral brown lip liner with a mauve lipstick and a tad of a lighter beige

 

Products Used: European Wax Center Tweezer Kit (SLANT), European Wax Centers Natural Brow Powder in Milano

Great Coverage With The Foundation I Love

A great foundation is very important, especially if your skin is not perfect to begin with since  it is possible to have some major flaws and still be able to cover them to make your skin look flawless. If you need a base that provides good coverage, ESTEE LAUDER has a line of foundation that does the trick.  One of my favorites in their line is Double Wear Stay-in-Place Makeup. I like it because I myself need to cover red patches and other skin flaws and find that it works well for this need.  Additionally, it is really great for evening makeup as well.

Off With Those Heads!!!!

 

My whole life I have struggled with acne problems.  I have tried every known product on the market and nothing, I mean NOTHING, helped.  By the time I was 18 I gave up trying to get rid of my acne and tried to cover it up by wearing, what felt like, 50 lbs of foundation on my face.  That just made my acne worse and I ended up looking like pancake batter.  I just lost all confidence in the way I looked and even stopped wearing makeup all together.

That was until a few weeks ago when I was introduced to “Off With Those Heads” acne serum by B-Liv skin care that my fight to cure my acne had come to an end.  When I was asked to sample B-Liv face serum I didn’t even have to think, I just yelled out “YES”!

After the first week of use I noticed a difference on my skin.  I couldn’t believe it!!!! My skin was starting to glow and I have NEVER had glowing skin before.  Here I am 3 weeks later and my skin even made it through the worst time pf the month for acne, BLEMISH FREE! 🙂 I can put my makeup on with ease and not have to worry about trying to cover any nasty marks up and it looks like my makeup was airbrushed on. I swear I feel like a runway model now whose skin is just gorgeous and flawless.

I recommend “Off With Those Heads” B-Live face serum to anybody with acne, blackheads, whiteheads etc. It is a sure fire way to say “OFF WITH THOSE HEADS”!!!

Beautiful Skin Starts with Murad

The biggest concern many women have as they age is losing the luminosity and elasticty in their skin.   We all wish we could be like Cher and “Turn Back Time” but sometimes that feels next to impossible. Unfortunately, we can’t all look like Cher but we can “Turn Back Time” in our own way.

With Murad’s Intensive-C Radiance Peel we can get back the young, vibrant skin we once had.  Enriched with Glycolic Acid to exfoliate your skin and Vitamin C and Indian Fig to bring back skin’s luminosity, Murad’s skin care is a plus for your daily skin care routine.

Now I know that people think I’m crazy because I’m 21, they think I shouldn’t have to worry about such things. Well, that is not entirely true.  I’m all about prevention.  Starting when I was just 16 years old, I started the anti-aging process.  My mom and many others thought I was crazy, but I kept doing it.

I suggest to all girls (teens as well) to start their own skin care regimen.  Murad skin care products are my favorite products to use.

Eco Chic: The New Trend in Skin Care

 

Just like every women, I put on my makeup in the morning and I take it off at night.  It’s like a cycle, we always wash our face at night to get rid of all the impurities and debris from the day. Although, I have noticed form personal experience that sometimes at night I do not always want to wash my face because I am too tired from the day.  Many times I would just go to bed without washing my face I was that tired.

When I started using Giovanni Eco Chic Cleansing Wipes, I never went to bed with my makeup on again.  All you need is one wipe and it takes all your makeup off without leaving your face feeling sticky or oily.  My main concern with any skin care is the fact that my skin is so sensitive to many of them.  Eco Chic Cleansing Wipes are dermatologist tested and fragrance free, keeping sensitive skin in mind.  Not only will these wipes cleanse your face, they will also hydrate and tone your skin to leave it looking soft, supple and healthy looking by drawing out toxins and exfoliating ones skin.

So next time you need a quick cleanse to remove the day away from your face try Giovanni’s Eco Chic Wipes.

Glamourize in your Sleep

Beauty rest!  I know you have heard that getting a good night’s sleep is essential for your overall general health. What if I told you that one simple little thing on your bed could cause wrinkles and ratted up hair? You would think I was crazy wouldn’t you?  Well, yes I will admit that, but I am serious.  Your cotton pillow case can hold debris in it’s fibers and that nasty debris can get in your pores causing wrinkles, acne etc.

With Morning Glamour Silk Pillow Case you can get that great night’s sleep both inside and out.  The silkiness of the pillow case can give you a smooth  feel and make you feel all refreshed and relaxed in the morning.  Morning Glamour even helps protect your hair from becoming a knotted mess.  I can remember my mom bought me a silk pillow case when I was younger for a wedding I was going to. I had my hair done in french braids and in order to keep my hair from getting frizzy I used the silk pillow case and it really helped.

I suggest using Morning Glamour not just as a “must” but as a “want”.  After having experienced the feeling of Morning Glamour  silk pillow case I suggest you get one yourself.

Nectar Never Looked so Good

 

The sweet smell of nectar can now be enjoyed in your body wash.  Winner of the Best of Beauty 2011 for Allure magazine, Thymes Agave Nectar Foaming Bath is surely the best bath wash I have ever used.

When I was a little girl I developed a sensitivity to certain kinds of body wash, bubble baths  and even body lotions.  It seemed that no matter what I used I would breakout in rashes all over my body.  My mom had to buy me all these none fragrance products and I hated it.  Even to this day I have to be careful of what I use.  When I first used the Thymes Agave Nectar, I was afraid of what would happen.  After a couple tries I noticed that my skin was soft and supple and there was no sign of a rash anywhere. I was sooooooo excited.

For anybody with sensitive skin, or who just likes the scent of agave nectar, ruby red grapefruit, tangy guava, and lemon blossoms, all blended into  one bottle,  give Thymes Agave Nectar Foaming Bath a try.  I’m sure you will not only  like it, but LOVE it.

Vitamin C: Not Just for Fighting Off Colds

At the first sign of a cold, a lot of us might think to reach for a big bottle of Vitamin C.  But did you know that the benefits of Vitamin C go way beyond keeping away the sniffles? 

Lumene makes a whole line of great skin care products infused with Vitamin C, which as it turns out, also assists with the formation of collagen and protects the skin.  Created from natural Artic ingredients, Lumene products are reasonably priced and perfect for anyone who wants a holistic approach to  beauty.

A new favorite of mine is their Dry Skin Comfort Radiance Cocktail, which I use twice a day after cleansing and before my moisturizer.  It really helps out here in southern California where there’s not a lot of natural humidity to help skin stay supple. And, as a bonus, it smells really great!  www.lumene.com
