DIY Face Masks and Beauty Treatments for beautiful, clear, youthful andPlump skin..



Hi, loves! Fall is here and I wanted to share some of my favorite masks and beauty treatments to get that natural glow we all want all year long. I'm a skincare junkie and to me masks and beauty treatments are a MUST! These are for all skin types and will target hydration, skin purification and circulation; all this to make you look youthful and gorgeous. Remember there is no magic potion and there is no "perfect complexion"  but a proper skin care regime, clean diet and an active lifestyle will help you achieve better skin from the inside out.
And for the OUTTER portion, I have narrowed down my ALL TIME FAVORITE ones to share with you!  No time to be greedy here.

These are all super easy DIY and are made with ingredients that most of us have at home or a store nearby.

ALL ABOUT VITAMIN C: Ole Henriksen Review/Demo

    
Hey there!  Today I have a super exciting review of three Ole Henriksen products and they are all about one of the gold standards of skincare, Vitamin C.

Known and proven to diminish dark spot, hyperpigmentation and discoloration of the skin, as well as combat free radicals and boost sun protection against UV rays when used with sunscreen; a must have in everyones skincare regime!

I personally have been using professional strength Vitamin C serums religiously for the past 5 years and I swear by it. It not only helps heal any breakouts I get but also fades away any dark spot on my face caused by sun damage and old blemishes. I honestly cannot go one day without it, I even bring it with me whenever I travel. 

So when I got a chance to try the Ole Henriksen Vitamin C Line on my Influencer Box I was super exited and I have to blog and tell you all about it.

Here I leave you with a video review and demo of how I use these products.
Power Bright 3-step professional strength Intensive brightening system 



This is a 3-step professional strength brightening system with a 25% vitamin C concentrate. With 3 relaxing steps, this is the perfect mask for a Spa day in the comfort of your own home. 

Step One | Exfoliate:  Truth Sugar Glow Polish Mask
Made with sugar, honey and pomegranate seed powder to scrub away dead skin cells and leave a polished and smooth surface.

HAPPY EARTH MONTH!! ECO- FRIENDLY Products of the month- April

April is Earth month and to celebrate I'm starting a new series here on my blog where I'll be featuring some of my favorite Eco-Friendy and natural beauty products each month.
A couple of years ago my husband and I decided to adopt a more natural and Eco- Friendly approach in our household and life. This meant changing most of our cleaning supplies, pet supplies and daily beauty/grooming essentials to avoid products that contain harsh and toxic chemicals.

Something that has helped us create self awareness about the products we use in our day to day lifestyles is reading product labels. This has encouraged us to shift towards natural products, free of harsh chemicals, and not tested on animals.

Honestly, now that we have information literally at our fingertips, it is easy to research, compare products and even order them at the comfort of your home.

Most of the products we buy are form Whole Foods and Vitacost. Use EBATES to get money back every time you shop form  hundreds of stores and when you sign up you get a $10USD gift card.

Since this is a beauty blog I'm only going to share beauty products that I use in my daily routine.



  • Extremely moisturizing, it will keep your skin hydrated and also create a protective barrier from the elements.
  • Anti-bacterial and anti-fungi. I use it for anything from mosquito bites, cuts, burn and pimples.
  • Great as a deep conditioning  hair treatment.
  • Natural makeup remover.
I have been using coconut oil every single day for years.  Its uses are endless in cooking,  as a makeup remover, and my all time favorite is as a body moisturizer and deep hair conditioning treatment.
Coconut oil has been demonstrated to have anti-flamatory, analgesic as well as anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties which makes it a great  treatment for minor cuts, burns, insect bites and pimples.
