5 MISTAKES THAT ARE MAKING YOU LOOK OLDER!!


MISTAKE # 1: Wearing foundation that does not match your skin color.
Many women end up looking they have a floating head or they are wearing a mask because their foundation does not match their face and neck. When you go too light it makes your skin appear flat and lifeless. Instead of natural, it will look like the makeup is just sitting on your skin, which can add years to your face. But if you go too dark, you are not highlighting your features, but dragging them down and adding a dullness and heaviness that is just as aging.

In order to get the right color, when testing out a foundation, do not blend it in too much. Simply tap it on your face from the top of your cheekbone to the bottom of your jawline and try to not go lighter or darker than your actual skin. If you are tan on your neck and body, you can bring that color into your face with a bronzer, without having to use a foundation that's too light. The goal is to connect your skin by blending it evenly across.

MISTAKE # 2: Choosing a lipstick that is too dark.

As you age, you lose definition in your lips, so to appear more youthful, you'll want to wear a lipstick that adds fullness. A dark color does just the opposite, making your lips look smaller, less plump, and less highlighted. Instead, choose something in a mauve or pink tone. Adding a layer of gloss is helpful as well. Many women feel like they are too old to wear lip-gloss, but a shiny finish will actually add a youthful plumpness.

Don't worry, this doesn't mean that you're forbidden from trying out all the berry and wine hues that are so popular for fall. But if you decide to go dark and are concerned about looking older, stay away from something with a heavier texture or matte finish because it will stay flat on your lips. Opt for a sheer and hydrating formula or a lip stain.

MISTAKE # 3: Only lining the bottom of your eyes with liner.

"So many women I talk to say 'I only line the bottom,'" Soane told us. "And when I ask them why, they say because 'It's easier.' It's tragic; top liner is mandatory." Though it may be easier to apply eyeliner on the bottom, only doing so will drag your features down and make your eyes appear smaller and your overall appearance seem older. Applying eyeliner on the top as well will open your eyes up and brighten your face. But be sure not to make the liner too thick, which can also be aging.
When applying eyeliner, try to get the product as close to your lash line as possible, so it appears to be an extension of your eyelashes. Start at the outer corner and work your way in along the top lash, then do the same for the bottom, but apply the line a little thinner than the top. Make sure that the bottom and top lines connect at the corner of the eye and add a touch of dark shadow to the bottom of the eye to soften the look.
MISTAKE #4: Applying the wrong shade of blush too low on your face.

Many women do not wear a shade of blush that adds youthfulness to their face. Some choose a brown color because they think they are adding definition and contouring, but it ends up looking muddy, dull, and like the makeup is just sitting on your skin. Other women often choose a product that is too soft in color, which can wash you out and age you as well.
To find the right shade, pinch your cheeks and try to match the natural color that you get when you actually blush. When applying, start at the height of the apple of your cheek and blend it up and back. Some people apply blush on the bottom of the cheekbone, but you want to place it higher to define and lift your features.

MISTAKE #5: Not adding color and defining your brows.

As you get older, your eyebrows get thinner, or simply from years of over-plucking, they just don't grow back. Not filling them in with a pencil or brow powder can leave you washed out and looking older, while a full brow will lift the face, define your features, and create an overall youthful appearance.
To pick a brow product, look for ones that are the same shade as your hair. If you are blonde, choose something that matches your roots; for silver or white hair, go for a soft gray tone; if you are brunette or redhead, try a mahogany or sable. For those with fair to medium skin, steer clear of anything that is red-based, and if you have a darker skin tone, choose something with warmth. Start by brushing your brows up and over. Then square the head of your brow off with the product and bring the color through the arch, all the way to where your brow would naturally end.

SIMPLE AND NATURAL SKIN TREATMENT TIPS


1. Simple Honey Face Mask
Raw honey is naturally anti-bacterial and a super quick way to get soft, beautiful skin. Once a week use a tablespoon or so of raw honey (not the processed stuff parading as honey) and gently warm it by rubbing your fingertips together. Spread on your face. Leave on for 5 – 10 minutes and then use warm water to gently rinse it off and pat dry. Then bask in the glow of your honey-awesomeness. This raw honey is awesome, by the way.

2. Apple Cider Vinegar Clarifying Shampoo
For those who are using commercial shampoos: To help eliminate any build up in your hair, mix ¼ cup organic apple cider vinegar (like this) with 1 cup water. Follow with your usual conditioner.

3. Elbow and Knee Exfoliate and Skin Brightener
Cut an orange in half and rub it on your elbows and knees. Helps soften those rough patches. And it smells good. (Rinse off the sticky mess when you are done.)

4. Gentle Body Scrub

Mix a 2 to 1 ratio of olive oil and sea salt to make a quick and effective body scrub. This helps get rid of dead skin cells creating softer, more glowing skin. And this natural beauty tip is much cheaper that expensive store bought  body scrubs.

10 NATURAL TIPS FOR GLOWING SKIN.


My guess is that if you're a woman above the age of 20, you take care of your skin. Most of us want natural, glowing skin that is well hydrated, firm, and elastic. We don’t mind having a few lines and wrinkles, as long as they come from natural expressions and aging, and not from eating junk food or smoking.

The skin is an amazing organ — it prevents water, microbes, dirt, and other particles from entering the body. It regulates your body temperature by allowing you to sweat excess heat and to shiver during the cold to help the blood move faster. It harnesses the energy of the sun, and converts it into vitamin D — your skin can actually create energy on the highest level!

It's also a window into your body’s health. What you eat and drink, your digestion, your liver’s ability to detox, your stress levels and sleep patterns — all of these show themselves through your skin. Your skin works hard for you, so you should work hard for it.

Here are 10 ways to show your skin that you love and appreciate what it does for you:

1. Cleanse

You don’t want to clog your skin’s pores with dirt, bad lotions, or unhealthy makeup. When you clog the pores, they become irritated and cause inflammations in the forms of pimples and bumps. Clean your skin with a mild natural foam or cleansing lotion, and wash your face with water. Do this every morning and evening, and potentially use a mist spray after.

2. Exfoliate

This is a very important, but often forgotten, treatment. You can use a natural mild exfoliator such as glycolic or lactic acid. You can also exfoliate with balms and powders derived from oatmeal or almonds (such as Dr. Haushka Cleansing Cream), or other cleaning products that use acai or seed powders.

Try a few different ones and find your favorite. Don’t forget to exfoliate the whole body and not just your face. Use a salt and sugar scrub with coconut oil and add your favorite essential oil. These days, my favorite oils are ylang ylang and lemon.

3. Nourish.

Oils and serums from natural and organic plant oils do wonders for both dry and oily skin. Some great options are: pure acai oil, Moroccan argan oil, and rose hip seed oil. Use these after your morning and evening cleanses while your face is still damp. Use coconut oil on the rest of your body.

Also, make sure that you get oils and fats in your diet. They feed the fat layer of the skin (the hypodermis). The healthier your hypodermis is, the more filled and firm your skin will appear. Great sources for these oils and fats are butter from grass-fed cows, organic coconut oil, cacao butter, and olive oil. Remember, eating these fats will not make you fat!

4. Hydrate.

I love serums and Hyaluronic acid gel. These are the most hydrating products you can get. The second layer of your skin produces it on its own, but there is no harm in giving it a helping hand. Hyaluronic acid binds with water and functions as natural filler in your face, which is what you want. Make sure that you drink at least two liters of water a day, as water is crucial for a healthy biology.

5. Feed.

Make sure to use lotions and creams. You don’t need specific creams for day and night purposes, just make sure to use ones that are derived from natural and organic sources. However, if you suffer from very dry skin, you might want to use an oil-rich lotion on your body in the evenings. (Just make sure that your lotions don’t include any hormone disturbing substances like parabens!)

This is important when moisturizing the body, as the surface area is so much larger than the face. Structure and sculpt your face by including building components in your diet: proteins. These are excellent sources of protein that your skin will thank you for: fish, meat from organic grass-fed animals, eggs, whey and hemp protein powder, almonds and nuts.

6. Boost.

Vitamins and antioxidants are very helpful because of their anti-inflammatory effects. As you select your skin care products, make sure you include vitamin C, D, E (as mixed tocopherols), A and beta-carotene. They can also be found in extracts from green tea and pomegranate seeds.

Your diet should also include a variety of colorful greens and vegetables. Different colors communicate differently within the body, and your skin needs them all to work at its best.

7. Treat

Spoil your skin and get a proper facial every six weeks — face massages work as natural facelifts (and they feel wonderful!).

8. Love

Food can talk to all three layers of the skin. Eat some words of love by including the following in your diet: blueberries, pomegranate, spinach, parsley, turmeric, butter from grass fed sources, coconut oil, salmon, almonds, and kefir.

9. Detox

A logical step towards beautiful skin is to have a clean biology. If you don’t have healthy digestion, functioning detoxification of the liver and kidneys, then it will show on your face. Constipation and bad skin go hand in hand, so aim to have to easy bowel movements a day. It helps to consumer water, fiber, and probiotics — it’s even better to live a sugar-free lifestyle.

10. Rest


Sleep and relaxation — these are so much more important than most people think. Take time to focus on mindful breathing everyday. Slow down, you don’t always have to be in a rush. Make sure that you're getting at least seven hours of quality sleep every night. Go beyond and practice a form of yoga daily. Join a class, or do some at home in the evenings. This will make it easier for you to fall asleep and get fully rested. Exercise and making love has the same effect — stay active for the beauty of your skin!

8 NATURAL WAYS TO GET SOFT AND PINK LIPS !!!




If you love to have makeup free days on a regular basis and you wonder how to keep your lips naturally pink, today, I have some tips for you:

1) Homemade, brightening lip scrub

If your lips look dull and tired, try to refreshen and brighten them up using this simple lip scrub: mix 1 tea spoon of sugar, one tea spoon of freshly squeezed lemon juice and 1 tea spoon of honey; massage your lips with this simple homemade scrub for a minute or two and see your lips brighten up; dullness will disappear and your lips will look more pink.

 2) Another lip massaging technique

To make your lips very soft and brightly pink, try gently massaging your mouth with wet, soft-bristle toothbrush every evening. This method can easily and quickly help exfoliate your lips, but remember, don’t be harsh, because the skin on your lips is very gentle!

3) Beetroot

Beetroot juice can become your favorite, natural lip stain. Not only it will give you beautiful color, but also, beetroots are rich in vitamins and antioxidants and can efficiently help nourish your lips. If you apply beetroot juice at night before going to sleep, in the morning, you will wake up with gorgeous, pink lips and the color can last the whole day, until your decide to wash it away.

 4) Carrot juice

Carrot juice works similar way as beetroot juice. Just soak a cotton pad in carrot juice and apply it on your lips. This rich in vitamins juice will add color and nourish your lips.

5) Pomegranate

Crush pomegranate seeds, apply the juice on your lips and see them become redder, brighter and fuller.

6) Roses

Grind up some rose petals in a bowl until you see the juice and apply this paste on your lips. Not only it smells divine, but also rose petals will hydrate, nourish and care for your lips, making them look brighter, healthier and, of course, pinker.

7) A slice of cucumber

Rub a cucumber slice on your lips daily for couple of minutes and see your lips brighten. Cucumber will help nourish your lips, lighten their color and make them look more pink naturally.

8) Orange

Orange peel can be very helpful in treating dull and dark looking lips. So, next time you eat an orange, don’t throw away that orange peel. Just rub it on your lips for a minute or two and see your lips brighten up and “blush”.

What are your favorite ways to keep your lips naturally pink? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comment’s section below.

Stay beautiful

MORE DRY SKIN REMEDIES !!!




Water:
 Drink plenty of water and soak in water, too. Avoid long, hot showers (use warm water) or strong-scented and drying soaps. Use bar soaps that are considered beauty bars that contain Lanolin, cocoa butter or coconut oil. When soaking in the tub, add a cup or two of Aveeno (or grind your own oatmeal to use) or add some powdered milk. Afterward, apply baby oil to your skin to lock in moisture. And speaking of water, run a humidifier to add moisture to the air and your skin, too.

Baby wipes:
 Look for wipes that contain Aloe Vera and Vitamin E. They can be a quick way to clean your face before you head out or when you first get back home. Use the wipes to remove makeup, too.

Olive oil:
 Add essential oil for scent if desired. Apply to skin. A little goes a long way, so don’t apply a lot. Other oils that work well are Jojoba, avocado, coconut, primrose, vitamin E, almond and emu.

Exfoliate:
 Scrub your skin to slough off dead skin. Apply a facial mask to cleanse, tone and soften your skin. Soak your feet in a footbath with Epsom salts or a cup of apple cider vinegar, and use a pedicure paddle and then moisturize. Exfoliate hands with a salt scrub or use a home paraffin spa to soften them. Then add moisturizer.

Salt Scrub:
 1/2 cup table salt
1/2 cup sea salt
1/4 cup coffee grounds
1 cup of almond, olive or baby oil
several drops of essential oil for scent
 Mix ingredients together, and adjust to the grit texture you prefer. Apply with your hands. Scrub gently and rinse.

Have fun trying out these tips.

10 REASONS TO SMILE


Smiling is a great way to make yourself stand out while helping your body to function better. Smile to improve your health, your stress level, and your attractiveness. Smiling is just one way to look younger, and a fun way to live longer. Read about the others and try as many as you can.

1.  Smiling Makes Us Attractive
We are drawn to people who smile. There is an attraction factor. We want to know a smiling person and figure out what is so good. Frowns, scowls and grimaces all push people away -- but a smile draws them in (avoid these smile aging habits to keep your smile looking great).

2.  Smiling Relieves Stress
Stress can really show up in our faces. Smiling helps to prevent us from looking tired, worn down, and overwhelmed. Believe it or not, smiling can reduce stress smiling can reduce stress even if you don't feel like smiling or know you're smiling! When you are stressed, take time to put on a smile. The stress should be reduced and you'll be better able to take action.

3.  Smiling Changes Our Mood
Next time you are feeling down, try putting on a smile. There's a good chance you mood will change for the better. Smiling can trick the body into helping you change your mood.

4.  Smiling Is Contagious
When someone is smiling they lighten up the room, change the moods of others, and make things happier. A smiling person brings happiness with them. Smile lots and you will draw people to you.

5.  Smiling Boosts Your Immune System
Smiling helps the immune system to work better. When you smile, immune function improves possibly because you are more relaxed. Prevent the flu and colds by smiling.

6.  Smiling Lowers Your Blood Pressure
When you smile, there is a measurable reduction in your blood pressure. Give it a try if you have a blood pressure monitor at home. Sit for a few minutes, take a reading. Then smile for a minute and take another reading while still smiling. Do you notice a difference?

7.  Smiling Releases Endorphins, Natural Pain Killers and Serotonin
Studies have shown that smiling releases endorphins, natural pain killers, and serotonin. Together these three make us feel good. Smiling is a natural drug.

8.  Smiling Lifts the Face and Makes You Look Younger
The muscles we use to smile lift the face, making a person appear younger. Don't go for a face lift, just try smiling your way through the day -- you'll look younger and feel better.

9.  Smiling Makes You Seem Successful
Smiling people appear more confident, are more likely to be promoted, and more likely to be approached. Put on a smile at meetings and appointments and people will react to you differently.

10.  Smiling Helps You Stay Positive

Try this test: Smile. Now try to think of something negative without losing the smile. It's hard. When we smile our body is sending the rest of us a message that "Life is Good!" Stay away from depression, stress and worry by smiling.

NEVER SAY NEVER ...UNLESS ITS DRY SKIN!!!



All too often, skincare advice seems aimed squarely at people who already have perfect skin. But for those of us with, shall we say, more difficult complexions, many traditional skincare ‘musts’ are downright detrimental to our face’s health and beauty.

Take those of us with dry skin. If your face ever feels tight and flaky, you know that there are a few very important skincare rules to keep in mind—and some things that you should always skip. Here are 7 of the things you should never, ever do if you have dry skin.

1. Forget to moisturize.
If you have normal or oily skin, it’s probably fine to skip a day of moisturizing here and there. Not so if you’re dry. If you have dry skin, you need to break out the big guns.

To begin with, you’ll probably want to consider using two moisturizers. Use a rich moisturizer in the evening after washing your face, and a lighter moisturizer with SPF of at least 30 in the morning before applying makeup. Be sure to apply moisturizer on your neck and hands as well
You can also amp up the hydration with natural oils on top of your evening moisturizer. Argan oil, avocado oil, and jojoba oil are all great for dry skin and can be found online or in health food stores (just be sure to avoid buying anything with added fragrance or any added ingredients). You can even dab Vaseline on top of very dry patches in a pinch to help trap moisture.

2. Over-exfoliate.
Dry skin often leads to flakiness, and the first impulse is often to scrub the flakes away. When you have dry skin, this is the worst thing that you can do, especially if you’re using an exfoliant every day. Over-exfoliating is only going to irritate (and therefore dry out) your skin more. Limit your exfoliation to one to three times a week, and avoid any products that have beads or grains that tear at your skin. 

You could also try chemical exfoliating with the use of BHAs or AHAs, which help to get rid of dead skin without any rough scrubbing. Just be sure to use those sparingly because they can dry out your skin even more if you overdo it.

3. Take long, hot showers.
Long, hot showers might save your sanity in the winter, but they’re definitely not helping your dry skin. If you’re taking a hot shower every day then it’s time to make a change (but we’re not saying you have to switch to cold showers; we aren’t monsters).

Instead, reduce the length of your showers (ten minutes max) or slowly lowering the temperature until you’ve switched from hot to warm showers. Avoid washing your face in very hot shower water (save that for the sink afterwards). You can also apply coconut oil or Vaseline before a shower to help keep skin from drying out.

4. Use products with high amounts of alcohol.
A small amount of alcohol in your products isn’t always a bad thing, contrary to popular opinion. Used properly, alcohol can help increase a product’s efficacy. However, if a product—like a toner—has high amounts of alcohol, it is very likely that it will dry out your skin. The takeaway here is to make sure to always research the ingredients before buying a new product, and do a patch test first whenever possible to be sure it doesn’t dry you out.

5. Use powerful facial cleansers.
It is imperative for people with dry skin to avoid stripping their skin with overly harsh cleansers. Yes, you absolutely need to do a good job of removing your makeup at night, but that doesn’t mean your skin needs to feel tight and itchy afterwards. There a lot of gentle cleansers out there, and some of them are even hydrating.

6. Use a million face masks.
Face masks can be a lot of fun, and sometimes you just want to post a scream-inducing mask selfie on Instagram. If you have dry skin, however, you need to be very choosy about which masks you put on your face. Many masks that promise to purify, shrink pores and remove blackheads are extremely drying. Instead, look for masks that offer hydration, soothing, or added moisture.
Also, if you do have a few spots on your chin or blackheads on your nose, try using that face mask that’s too harsh on the rest of your face as a spot treatment.

7. Use powder or matte makeup.
First, a disclaimer: we’re not saying that if you have dry skin, there is no powder or matte makeup out there that will work for you. It’s definitely possible, but as a general rule, however, you should try to stick to cream or liquid makeup that promises a dewy finish. Most matte and powder makeup will only emphasize dry skin and can easily look caked-on.

10 WORKING TIPS TO CLEAR YOUR SKIN !!!







Don’t pick! This is the first rule of thumb. Picking your skin, especially with bare, unwashed hands, will defeat the effects of any healing products or healthy lifestyle changes you may be doing. Picking your skin with bare hands may lead to small cuts and tears from your nails, and dirt is easily passed from your hands to your skin, thus creating breakouts. Remember, if you pick one zit, you will have 5 more!

Keep it simple. Using too many harsh products on your face can dry out your skin, creating peeling, redness and breakouts. You may think that using that 10% Benzoyl Peroxide every night is helping, but if your face is irritated you will only break out more.Always wash your face at night. ALWAYS! No excuses on this one. Your face collects so many dirt and toxins throughout the day. Mixed with makeup, this is a combination sure to lead to breakouts. If you do one thing to keep your skin clear, just take a few minutes to wash everything off at the end of the day. If you are too tired, then do it as soon as you get home before you start relaxing. If you are not in the habit already of washing your face at night, I promise you results from doing this one simple thing.

Use a cleanser with Salicylic Acid. Salicylic acid fights acne by killing bacteria and lessening sebum. DDF Blemish Foaming Cleanser does a great job of cleaning off makeup, contains acne fighting ingredients, and is mild enough to use morning and night. For oilier skin, try DDF Salicylic Wash. This cleanser contains a higher percentage of Salicylic Acid for more intense acne fighting, but it may dry out your skin. If you experience any dryness or irritation, switch to using this cleanser only at night and a milder cleanser in the morning. Remember to wash your face twice at night to remove all makeup! A great cleanser to use in the mornings if you have more sensitive skin is IS Clinical Cleansing Complex. Containing both salicylic acid and glycolic acid, this cleanser fights acne, gently exfoliates your skin, and is gentle enough not to dry out your face. This cleanser does not remove makeup that well, so that’s why I recommend using it in the mornings and a stronger cleanser at night.

A hydrated face is a clear face. You have all heard that drinking water helps clear your skin and this is not a myth. Not only does drinking lots of water cleanse your body of unwanted toxins, but it also helps to detoxify your skin and add needed moisture.
Along with drinking water, using a moisturizer is very important. Even if you have oily skin, a moisturizer helps to keep your skin from becoming irritated and actually helps even out the production of oil, thus leading to less breakouts. There are a lot of moisturizers for oily skin, but I like Peter Thomas Roth Ultra Lite Oil-Free Sunblock SPF 30 because it’s super sheer, blends in really well, and also contains an SPF 30, which is so important! Don’t be afraid that using a moisturizer will make you break out. So long as you stick to an oil free moisturizer your skin will have less irritation and dryness which means less break outs.

Use mineral makeup. My favorite is Colorescience for it’s superior ingredients compared with other mineral makeups. Colorescience foundation covers imperfections really well without being shiny and heavy. Best of all, because Colorescience contains no talc or additives, it’s actually good for your skin. Colorescience makeup does not penetrate your skin so it won’t clog pores and cause breakouts, and soothing minerals along with vitamin A soothe and eliminate skin irritation.

Use a topical acne fighter at night. Hands down, the best acne remedy is IS Clinical Active Serum. If you’ve read my blog before, you know how much I like this product! Active serum is a liquid that you put on with your fingertips at night, avoiding the eye area. Active serum contains Salicylic acid and Glycolic acid to fight acne, kill bacteria and exfoliate dead skin, and Kojic and Lactic acid for superior anti-aging benefits. Also assisting in pigment reduction, this product does it all! Don’t use any other product on your skin after using Active Serum on clear skin. Active serum is best used alone to avoid irritation. If your face becomes dry, then you can wear a moisturizer such as IS Clinical Hydra Cool on top, once the Active Serum has dried on your skin. Hydra Cool is a cooling, serum moisturizer that contains Menthol, which is anti-bacterial. Hydra Cool is designed to work in conjunction with Active Serum and other IS Clinical products to help them work better.

Use a sulfur mask. My personal favorite is DDF Sulfur Therapeutic Mask. Sulfur is well known to absorb oil, purify skin and pores and is a great anti-inflammatory. Sulfur is so healing it actually helps to instantaneously dry out blemishes and prevent more from coming. Apply a thick layer all over your face and neck, avoiding your eye area, 1-3 times per week. For severely acneic and oily skin, you may use this mask every day, but if your skin gets too dry, decrease frequency. Don’t let this mask dry out on your face, wash it off with warm water after no more than 10 minutes. DDF Sulfur Therapeutic mask will also help to gently exfoliate dead skin cells, leaving skin super clean, calmer and radiant.

Get facials. If you can afford it, get a good, deep cleaning facial once a month. Otherwise, getting a facial once every couple, or every 6 months will definitely help. A facialist can deep clean your skin and clean out pores using professional grade products and equipment, plus they have the skills to really get in there without damaging your skin. Don’t get anything too frou frou, make sure that your facialist does extractions and a glycolic peel is excellent for less sensitive skin. It’s not worth spending the money unless you walk out of the spa with unclogged pores and balanced skin.


Remember, keep your skin clean, keep your hands away from your face, and use high quality, oil free, products. A simple regimen consisting of skin beneficial products and keeping your skin free from irritation leads to clear beautiful skin!
