How many of you use satin pillowcases?  Well if you don’t, get some ASAP!

There are so many reasons to use satin pillowcases.  The first reason is that when you are a side sleeper or a stomach sleeper the satin lets the skin glide easily across the pillow.  This is good for preventing wrinkles and also for preventing hair breakage.  Both of these are super important!

The second reason is that satin pillowcases don’t absorb oil like cotton does.  Cotton pillowcases will dry out your face and your hair.  It sucks the oil right out.  We don’t want that!  We need to keep all the natural oil we have in our skin and hair.

And the last reason is that satin pillowcases are so pretty.  They come in a variety of colors.  Nothing says fancy like satin.  Here’s to looking good!  xoxo.

Face Magic

Face Magic

I’ve been reading a lot of reviews lately of jade rollers that you use on your face.  Jade rollers have a long history and have been used in China since the 17th century.  They are supposed to be really amazing and help to reduce fine lines, de-puff your skin and increase collagen.  Sounds good to me!  Also, the rollers push your product deeper into your pores, therefore getting more benefit from your product.  They are so inexpensive, I’m giving it a try.

 

To receive the best benefit from the roller be sure to place it in the freezer for at least 2 hours prior to using.  Do the following steps:

  • Cleanse your face
  • exfoliate
  • apply serum or moisturizer
  • start rolling for around 2 minutes
  • wipe your face to remove product
  • apply fresh product

Here’s to looking younger!  xoxox

Everybody knows that collagen is key for anti-aging.  Dr. Oz discussed this on his show recently. But how do you get it?  Collagen is created naturally but there are ways to increase production.  I have been using this product and it’s awesome.

I can tell a big difference in the moisture in my skin and the elasticity.  Both are desirable in order to make your skin look as good as it can.  Just mix it up in your morning water, juice or coffee.  There’s no taste and it’s a simple way to look better naturally.

According to Wikipedia collagen is defined as:

AcCollagen /ˈkɒlədʒɪn/ is the main structural protein in the extracellular space in the various connective tissues in animal bodies. As the main component of connective tissue, it is the most abundant protein in mammals,[1] making up from 25% to 35% of the whole-body protein content. Collagen consists of amino acids wound together to form triple-helices to form of elongated fibrils.[2] It is mostly found in fibrous tissues such as tendons, ligaments and skin.
Depending upon the degree of mineralization, collagen tissues may be rigid (bone), compliant (tendon), or have a gradient from rigid to compliant (cartilage). It is also abundant in corneas, cartilage, bones, blood vessels, the gut, intervertebral discs, and the dentin in teeth.[3] In muscle tissue, it serves as a major component of the endomysium. Collagen constitutes one to two percent of muscle tissue, and accounts for 6% of the weight of strong, tendinous muscles.[4] The fibroblast is the most common cell that creates collagen. Gelatin, which is used in food and industry, is collagen that has been irreversibly hydrolyzed.[5] Collagen also has many medical uses in treating complications of the bones and skin.
The name collagen comes from the Greek κόλλα (kólla), meaning “glue”, and suffix -γέν, -gen, denoting “producing”.[6][7] This refers to the compound’s early use in the process of boiling the skin and tendons of horses and other animals to obtain glue.cording to

Hey Baby!

I don’t know about you but I’m done with cold weather!  I’ve had congestion and a scratchy throat for weeks.  Nothing seemed to help.  Not to mention that my skin gets very dry and itchy during winter months.

I’ve found a solution that you might want to try.  A friend of mine told me she uses a humidifier.  And I thought those were just for babies! So I drove to my local Walmart and purchased one.  It was only $25.00.

This little jewel works great!  I sat it on a table right by my bed so it blows right around my head.  It blows cold water instead of hot water and according to reports this helps to keep bacteria and germs out of the tank.  It makes a little noise like the sound of water dripping, unlike the old type that hissed and made loud noises.

Let me know how it works for you! xoxox

Winter time brings all sorts of skin issues.  Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize!  However, sometimes your feet get all crackly and rough and it’s really hard to get rid of, not to mention it looks awful.  I’ve been using this foot peel for several years and it’s really good! You can find Baby Feet at many spas and medical spas as well as online at places like Amazon.  Looks like Overstock. com is having a sale!  Here’s to smooth sailing for you xoxo.

Dry Skin be Gone!

I recently went to South Africa on a trip.  It was fabulous but the plane ride to get there was brutal! 17 hours on a plane is the absolute pits.  Dry, stale air along with dehydration plays havoc on your skin.

My friend Shirie sells Arbonne products and I had purchased the face oil from her several months ago.  I used that face oil on my skin during the flight and it was a game changer!  I didn’t have any issues at all with dry skin.  You should try it this winter!  It doesn’t cause your skin to break out and it’s very lightweight.  And the great news is that it happens to be on sale until the 15th for 25% off.  Contact Shirie to get yours at SLHWKNS@yahoo.com.

 

Sun Spots are Yucky

I used to love to sit in the sun. Baby oil with iodine mixed in along with an aluminum foil reflector was the norm.  Laying out from 10am-4pm was the schedule.  My goodness how times have changed!  Now I wear 70 strength sunscreen, long sleeve bathing suits and a hat.

I ran upon a DIY face mask that can help with those pesky sun spots that seem to appear out of nowhere.  It’s good and so easy!  xoxo

Mix 1 tablespoon of applesauce with 1 teaspoon of unfiltered apple cider vinegar.  Smooth on clean skin, make sure to avoid your eyes!  Leave on for 10 minutes and then rinse.
