Fun in the sun!

It's good to have fun in the sun...However, it IS very important to protect your skin while you are out and about. In a word, "suncreen!" Apply before heading outdoors and reapply after extended exposure. There are many products out there that are actually good for your skin while protecting you from harmful over exposure to the sun. My favorites are COOLA  and Arbonne. With a more natural approach to protect the largest organ of your body, Your skin. Protect it, wear it everyday! :-)

Stay young with Yoga!

Yoga helps fight gravity, release stress, reduce anxiety and improve your posture!
It doesn't have to be difficult or time consuming.  As few as 5 simples poses a day could do the trick. Stretching and strengthening, it does your mind and body good! Get some of our favorites www.more.co

The BUN is back!

Celebs and fashion gurus know the secret to a quick anti-aging hair and skin look...Pull it all up or back off the face in a sleek or soft sloppy bun for a fabulous look!

Hair is the most important accessory!

Like it or not, Your hair style leads the first impression only after your smile!  Having said that, when was the last time you visited a licensed Hair Stylist, in a salon that is known for high quality work and expertise?
 Are you someone that is wearing a hairstyle that you consider "safe" and by that I'm referring to "You",  the one stuck in an old and unflattering style! Seasons change and so does our hair type, texture, color, thickness etc...I will use myself as an example so here we go.

Manicure; To Gel or not to Gel?

MANICURE...To gel or not to gel?
Weekly manicures are a far better choice of service for healthy cuticles and nails. A professional manicure performed by a trained and licensed nail tech is the way to go , to get your nails to grow! We use ZOYA 5 Chem-Free polish! An active length, where your nails extend just a bit over the edge of your finger tips are both attractive and functional- especially for those that regularly type and text. 

If you're a "Gel-Mani" fan...plan to get "only one a month" Or, if you're planning on an extended vacation or business trip away etc.

How can I benefit by a professional facial?


Fragrance...Artificial vs. Essential Oils

Artificial Fragrances, fragrances can contain a wide variety of harmful ingredients. These ingredients may include phthalates, petrochemicals, benzene, toluene, xylene, methanol, and others. Chief among these are; phthalates. Phthalates have been proved to be endocrine disruptors and are also highly suspected of being carcinogenic. The additional danger of the chemicals used in artificial fragrances is that they are absorbed through the skin AND are inhaled. Items which are inhaled reach the bloodstream much more rapidly than those which are absorbed through the skin.

But is it safe...

Why is it important to be concerned about the ingredients in hair and skin care products? 

Because your skin is basically a huge bidirectional sponge that absorbs anything placed on it. According to a study conducted by Chemical Safe Skincare Research in 2006, the average woman absorbs more than five pounds of toxins from her bath, body and skin care products every single year. Yes …FIVE POUNDS! The effect that five pounds of toxic material has on your body is hard to estimate, but many of the toxic chemicals used in body care products are known to be, endocrine disruptors, reproductive hormonal disruptor, allergens, gene modifiers, and more.

Ingredients Detective

Nomenclature for Cosmetic Ingredients (INCI) names. This can make label reading a bit of an adventure, as it requires the most natural ingredients, such as Shea Butter, to be listed using a combination of Latin and chemical identifiers. You should never see “Shea Butter” listed on a label, but will instead see it listed as “Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter).” The INCI name for processed table salt, sea salt, Celtic salt and Himalayan salt are all “Sodium Chloride” with no indicator of the salt’s origin or mineral content. Most cosmetic and body care manufacturers expand the INCI names to identify the type of salt used and to identify which ingredients are organic. I always figure the amount of detail provided on a label is a good indicator of a manufacturer’s commitment to quality and to only using natural ingredients
