Virgin Coconut Oil

A lot of times during the summer we all shower all the time being in Florida. And soap products can leave a film on your skin especially your feet, elbows and back. Soap cleaners are very strong and also leave films in the shower. So if it is leaving a film in the shower then it is leaving a film all over your body. That is why it is good to just use water to cleanse your body and leave shampoo’s to just your hair. Just taking a shower in water will alleviate any film let in the shower or your body.

When you are complete, finish with some real good Coconut oil for your hands, feet and all over. This is a lovely moisturizer for the skin and also in the hair. If you have chemically treated hair then the natural oils from the coconut will smooth out any and all fly aways you have when you are blow drying the hair. Just apply a little with your styling lotion make sure to mix the two ingredients well and not separately. Comb through and begin your blow dry.  Or if you go to the beach add some to wet hair and comb through and you will protect your color treated hair. Plus it will add moisture to it from the warmth of the sunshine.

I recommend Shea Moisture Daily Glow for all over the skin. A lot of models have known of using the coconut oils for their skin to keep it looking smooth and not a dry look. That is important for camera, especially for summer time photo-shoots.

I like to use this product for photo-shoots especially for the summer beach shoots. It give the skin a soft highlight. Smooth a small amount in circular motions over face and neck after cleansing. Skin feels softer with a healthy-looking glow. Wear alone or under makeup.  And you can see the glow from within upon application, no highlighter needed! I love the smell and texture, and it worked great for keeping foundation on all day. This product will dry smooth and not leave a oily feeling to your skin.

Clean Your Makeup Brushes

Why You Need To Clean Your Makeup Brushes NOW!

Makeup is designed to bind with your skin and if you’re not washing your brushes every day, you’re only allowing layer after  layer of makeup to glue to your bristles. Keep them clean. If not and you’re slathering it all over your face and not getting the true color you want to apply that day. And also if you do not clean then you will clog your pores.

Ever wondered why your skin always looks dry and dull and never dewy? Dirty makeup tools only mean dirty, splotchy, spotty, muddy makeup applications.

Ever wake up and wonder why your skin looks puffy and bloated? Again, another reason why you should grab your makeup brushes STAT and clean them. I like using baby shampoo and warm water. Apply some shampoo to your warm water and work the makeup out using downward strokes when cleaning blush, contour and foundation brushes. Towel dry and spray some alcohol on the brushes to sanitize them.

This will give you a truly clean makeup application and a lovely scent to your brushes. Also you brushes will be very soft also.  Most women are spending a significant amount on cosmetic brushes in order to achieve desired makeup looks, but they’re not protecting their investment or their skin by properly caring for these tools. Allowing dirt and oils to build up on your brushes only shortens their lifespan. And cause you to have infections especially lip brushes.
