My Easy Summer Beauty Routine

When it comes to a daily beauty routine, mine is very simple. No over the top products and definitely no makeup, so i count on the simplest products to give a natural glow for my skin and hair.

I always moisturize my skin all year round, but for the summer in particular, I use Vaseline ‘cocoa glow’ because it indeed gives a bronze glow with a scent that makes you feel like you’re on the beach.

When it comes to my morning facial routine, I am always in search of the product that suits my sensitive skin the most, and this time I am using The Body Shop organic ‘Nutriganic’ face and eye cream. Although it is not an anti-aging cream, its an all natural moisturizer that doesn’t irritate sensitive skin. read more

A Ritual For Soft Hands

Who among us doesn’t suffer from dry flaky skin during the winter? It truly is a dilemma when the harsh cold weather strips the moisture from our skin, causing damage. Our hands in particular are constantly exposed, and if you want something a bit more efficient than lotion, give the following a try.

Last night I thought of pampering my hands in a little scrub I made up. Now I’m sure this exists somewhere and it isn’t an invention, but here’s what I did.

D.I.Y. Body Scrub

If you don’t have a store bought body scrub, or simply want to try a natural one using household ingredients, it is easier than you think.

What you need is the following:

1 ripe banana

3 tablespoons granulated sugar

1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

Mix the ingredients in a bowl with a fork, but don’t allow them to lose the thick texture. Pat the mix all over your body in the shower, then rinse with warm water.

The sugar scrubs dead skin cells and rejuvenates the skin, and the vitamins in the banana help maintain the skin’s elasticity. Give this scrub a try and let me know what you think! read more

Pamper Your Feet

As summer approaches, so does the hot weather, implying sandal season. I cannot emphasize enough how important it is for a woman’s feet to be properly cared for. I see cracked soles and dry toes so many times, its unattractive and gives off a vibe of someone who isn’t too keen on hygiene.

I am a freak when it comes to being properly groomed, and I am going to share with you my foot care ritual. I do this all year long and not just in summer, and I recommend you do the same for soft feet. read more

Custom Bubble Bath

Do you ever get the feeling of being drained with a hint of a headache after a long week of work? Well I was there last Friday night and I scanned my room for items I could put together for what I figured would be a solution. Yep, I’m talking about a bubble bath. Since I don’t have any special product for this, I decided to scramble various types of body washes, kind of like mixing ingredients for a recipe.
