Quick Beauty Tip – DIY Lip & Body Scrub

quicktip-DIY-LipBodyScrub

With the ending months of winter and the incoming months of spring, you don’t want to be the girl who has a fabulous manicure accompanied by dry, cracked hands. Here in Florida, winter seems to be nonexistent but no matter where you are or what season it is, we all should take 5 minutes to make this scrub at home with stuff you probably already have.

Scrubs give you the opportunity to increase the circulation in your body, have glowing skin, sensuous lips, and are great exfoliants! A two-for-one recipe, this DIY works wonders for your entire body and pout!

Here’s how it’s made:

  1. Get 1/4 cup of coarse sugar. If you don’t have coarse sugar, you can use brown sugar or salt
  2. 1/2 lemon
  3. 2 Tablespoons of coconut oil
  4. 1/8 cup of Olive oil
  5. Mix all the ingredients together in a small bowl until the coconut oil chunks have disappeared. Once it’s done,  it should be a creamy consistency.
  6. Scrub your hands with this for 2 minutes and rinse with lukewarm water. Do not use soap! This allows the remaining oils to stay on your body and soak in.
  7. Pat dry with a towel

I love, love, love this scrub! It leaves my skin baby soft! But if you do not have time for that just use the Bliss Lemon + Sage body Scrub & the Bliss Fabulips Sugar Lip Scrub. You’ll love the results!

Tutorial Tuesday – At Home Lip Scrub

TT-Lip-scrub

No one likes to pucker up with lips that are dryer than the Sahara! Surprise, surprise, you need to exfoliate your lips too! Dead skin builds up on your lips causing a dry and flaky smoocher, especially in the constantly & rapidly changing climates we endure. Lips don’t have oil producing glands which are the cause of this dryness, as well as the reason that they require their own scrub to be up to the perfect kissing potential.

Follow these simple steps to create your own at home (and tasty) lip scrub. You will need: a spoonful of sugar, oil, and honey – equal parts. Combine them and apply to lips in a smooth, even layer. Use a spoolie brush (shown here) to scrub off the dead skin gently. Repeat if necessary.

Curly and thick hair is so strong it needs products that are strong enough to manage it. Here we feature styling products for hairstyling fine, curly, thick and coarse hair types.

Fine hair can get greasy fast and because of this gals with fine hair shy away from hair oils like Agadir Argan Oil Hair Treatment.

Gorgeous Makeup for Thanksgiving Day!

Smoky Eye Makeup for a Party Night Look

Smoky Eye Night Look

Makeup, makeup, makeup. What will we do without you? Thanksgiving is tomorrow and it kicks off the start of the holiday season. If you are a natural and nude makeup gal remember the next month will be filled with gatherings with friends and family. It is the best time to have fun and accentuate your best facial features. Gorgeous eyes, lips or high cheekbones? Use makeup to display your beauty!

Katie Holmes smoky eyes and warm lips make her look alluring and sexy. She chose a golden-mocha lip shade with high shine. Now a red or nude lip complements smoky eyes, but gives a look that is cold, but edgy.

We love this makeup look for a Thanksgiving night dinner paired with a sexy black dress or a dress in a warm tone like gold, brown, green, or purple. Here we feature the makeup needed to create this party makeup look!

Step 1: Apply a primer or moisturizer. These will help makeup stay on longer!

Step 2: Grab any smoky eye kit. We love the the
Glo Minerals Alloy Eyes Collection
because it includes eight shades for different shades of smoky eyes. But right now we want smoky, smoldering eyes.

Step 3: Use an eyeshadow brush to shade entire eyelid with second darkest shade. Start brushing lightly until the shade is as dark as you want your smoky eye to look. It’s perfect of you layer it.

Step 4: Apply the darkest shade to the crease of eye. This is the area where it folds.

Step 5: Use the brightest shade, a white or a shimmer and blend it underneath the brow bone or the arch of your eyebrow. This will make your eyes look bright and balance your face.

Step 6: Choose your warm lipstick. To get a shade similar to Katie Holmes, we used the TIGI Cosmetics Lip Creme in Monaco. It gives an incredibly rich color and we love the shine! This one brings lip moisturizers and antioxidants.

5 Tips for Healthier-Looking Skin on a Tight Budget

5 Tips for Healthy Skin On A Budget Beautiful skin can be achieved on a budget! Top brands in skin care have gone through a lot of effort to make their products effective, and we understand that. For some of us, it is just not possible with limited funds! So how do people on a budget achieve great skin? Here we feature skin care tips for maintaining healthy and clear skin without putting a dent in your wallet.

Tip 1: Use your kitchen. Your kitchen may already store natural skin care products. Did you know plain yogurt can be used as a face mask for relieving dry skin? It contains moisturizers that sooth irritated, dry or scaly skin. Sugar or salt mixed with olive oil can be used to exfoliate elbows, knees, and feet!

Tip 2: Eat and drink healthy. This is repeated time and time again, but drinking water is good for a reason. If you don’t get enough sleep you will be tired in the morning right? If you don’t drink water, how do you expect your skin to glow and look smooth?

Tip 3: Invest in skin care products you really need and buy them at a deal! Buying several skin care products to treat different skin concerns can put a dent in your wallet. Spend money only on an eye cream for crow’s feet or a treatment for blackheads. We like the Dr. Brandt Pores No More Vacuum Cleaner at $29.99, because it tightens and refines pores enough to make us not want to wear makeup. And it is $15 dollars off its original price!

Tip 4:Avoid the sun! The sun dries out skin and causes serious harm to skin cells. Freckles, dark spots, and wrinkles can come back years later as if your skin is exacting revenge on all the times you left it unprotected. You will not want to look at your skin and regret not taking care of it. As you get older, age, hormones and the environment cause skin to change. Have the upper hand and wear sunscreen. You will be proud of how great your skin looks at any age!

Tip 5:Drink Bloody Mary’s. Drinking less alcohol is great for your skin! But if you won’t listen to this rule at least choose to drink a cocktail that is healthy for you. Bloody Mary’s contains tomato juice, vegetable juice, and turmeric! Turmeric is an Indian spice. It contains powerful antioxidants and it provides anti-inflammatory benefits! This means you may wake up with less puffy eyes and protect your skin’s health. But do not overdo it! It contains alcohol remember?

7 Skin Care Tips for Clear and Smooth Skin

7 Skin Care Tips for Smooth, Healthy Looking Skin

We follow beauty regimens and even drop a pretty penny on the latest beauty products that promise instant fixes to our skin woes. Most of us wish for our skin to radiate a healthy and natural glow. How about we set up the groundwork for great skin care and choose beauty products that assist in correcting the problems we can’t fix?

Tip 1: Stay hydrated. Did you know about 70% of our body is made up of water? Drinking water is very important for the health of our skin. If you are not drinking water, how can you expect your skin to look healthy? Imagine a plant that does not get enough water. It starts to wilt, and as soon as you water it, it looks alive again. That is exactly what our skin goes through. Drink water and skin will look healthier, less dull. A hydrated body can help prevent dry skin!

Tip 2: Wear sunscreen. The sun not only dries out skin, it causes freckles, wrinkles, and in time, dark spots to form! Our skin is a clean canvas that needs protection from the elements. You wear a coat to protect against the cold, carry an umbrella to protect against the rain, use sunscreen to protect the skin you wear for a lifetime!

Tip 3: Exfoliate once or twice weekly. Enlarged pores are visible because our skin works hard! Pores expand to absorb extra oil, dirt and debris you do not wash off. Exfoliating washes off the extra stuff your skin does not need. Consider a skin cleansing system like Clarisonic. It uses a rotating brush head to clean skin making washcloths obsolete! If a Clarisonic is not an investment you are ready for right now, June Jacobs Perfect Pumpkin Enzyme Polish decongests pores, purging them of unnecessary oils. The pumpkin extracts exfoliate, brighten, and make your skin look fresh! In as little as two weeks, you will notice smaller pores and smoother skin. It is really worth a try!

Tip 4:
Moisturize. Day and Night. Skin that is moisturized stays smooth and supple preventing premature lines and wrinkles. If the moisturizer has an SPF, even better! Our favorite? Pevonia Botanica Age-Defying Marine Collagen Cream. It contains squalene and marine collagen to infuse skin with moisture and protect it with UV filters. This anti-aging face moisturizer will soften fine lines and wrinkles.

Tip 5: Eat fruit. Cantaloupe is perfect. It contains a great amount of vitamin C, a known collagen producer! Strawberries, mangoes, pineapple all have tons of great good for your skin vitamins and antioxidants. It’s perfectly okay to dip the strawberries in chocolate!

Tip 6: Sleep. At least 8 hours. Your body “fixes” itself when you sleep. Think about it, if you don’t recharge the battery on your phone, your phone will not turn on. If your body doesn’t rest, you will have less energy, your immune system will not fight as much bugs, and your skin will look dull and older!

Tip 7: Supplement. If you eat all your fruits and veggies, great! If you don’t, a supplement with vitamins and minerals gives your body the tools it needs to regenerate itself. Vitamin C is an antioxidant that keeps away bugs like the flu and produces collagen which makes your skin look plump. There are supplements just for keeping your skin looking healthy. Here is one: Perricone MD Skin Clear Dietary Supplements. It contains a long list of great skin clearing ingredients: vitamin C, vitamin E, vitamin D, and omega 3 are just a few.

Follow these tips to see smooth, healthy looking skin results in as little as 2 weeks!

New Dandruff and Itchy Scalp Solutions at TheBeautyPlace.com

Scalp Treatments for Dandruff Sufferers

Seborrhea dermatitis is a very common skin condition that causes flaky, white to yellow flakes. Studies show dandruff sufferers face social and self-esteem issues due to the characteristics of this scalp concern like “flakes” on shoulders and the intense itchiness. TheBeautyPlace.com identifies this condition and features professional hair care products for the immediate treatment of dandruff.

If we all learned the facts, the social stigma around this condition will diminish. Dandruff can be caused by dry skin or oily skin. The solution for dandruff caused by dry skin is to use a moisturizing shampoo. This type of shampoo nourishes the scalp, and usually is free of sulfates and alcohols which cause dry scalp. When dandruff is caused by oily skin it is called Seborrhea dermatitis. This occurs because the scalp produces too much sebum or oil. Both conditions whether oily or dry cause itchiness.

Dry skin sufferers will find Agadir Argan Oil Shampoo and Conditioner is beneficial. Argan oil is rich in vitamins, antioxidants, and conditioners which moisturize scalp while at the same time leaving hair soft. Since argan oil is a moisturizer, skin is hydrated and when sufficient moisture is available flakes do not form.

Skin that is oily is due to an overproduction of sebum. Sebum is a waxy substance, and it occurs when a fungal organism is present. Now fungus sounds icky, but its normal and not contagious, and scientists know that it is common in families. To treat this type of dandruff a shampoo with an active ingredient is recommended. Before, shampoos were formulated with tar and other active ingredients to eliminate dandruff. But they were not appealing to users. DS Labs Dandrene Antidandruff Shampoo contains an active ingredient called Ketaconazole. It is an anti-fungal agent administered orally or topically to treat a variety of fungal infections. It has proven to effectively alleviate the scalp, and reduce itchiness and over production of oils which dry and cause flakes. When you use this shampoo it does not feel so “i am applying medicine” feel.

Now that you know which types of dandruff exist you can better treat this scalp condition. If you are looking for scalp treatments to treat hair loss get Bosley Professional Strength Follicle Nourisher. It is a scalp treatment which strengthens follicles and primes scalp for better absorption of hair loss treatments.
