TLC for your dry hands

Hello Beauties,

Whoaaa, I know I've been lacking updating my beauty blog:( i have no excuse than laziness!!!!!!! Can I maybe blame it on the winter weather we're having still!!!  But today I did manage to blog and give you some remedy for your dry hands.  I know I've been suffering this dry hands for sometimes now! Believe me I do use hand creams, in fact a have few of them that I'm playing with to see which one works the best.  Usually, my loccitaine hand cream works really good on winter time, but somehow this winter this hand cream let me down:(  I also tried using the 100% Shea butter in the tin, it does work but after short time I can only start to feel my hands feeling so dry again that i need to reapply.  I do alot of work here at home and constantly washing my hands in between that sometimes I will admit that to lazy to crab my hand cream and slather it on! And Yes, I have it with me close to the kitchen sink so i can see it right away, after washing my hands and drying next isto put this hand cream. As I was looking  for something in my bathroom today, I came stumbled this One Step Manicure spa treatment for your hands, made with natural Lemon Oil, Beeswax and Shea Butter. I remember I bought this awhile ago and have only used it once or twice, I don't know why didn't I remember this and should have use it at least once or twice a week as my weekly treatment for my dry hands. So today, I finally got to use it and walla!!!! The solution for my dry hands:) I just massage a small amount for just one minute and paying attention to the cuticles, rinse and dry!!!! OMG, my hands needed this treatment so bad and right away it made my hands soft and hydrated:)  I didn't even have to put on additional hand cream.  I was so glad to find this in my bathroom!!! Cause I really didn't want to spend money on another hand point is, if you are suffering from dry hands this winter, try this one step manicure!! Its great also for exfoliation and treatment for your dry cuticles.  Your hands will  love it and thank you for it:)

I know my hands are happy and very soft!!!!!!

BTW, this treatment is by "SURGEON'S SKIN SECRET"

Hope you guys will try this treatment for you hands and hope it works for you too!!!!!
Till next time, ^-^

Going CoCo for Coconuts

Hello again Beauties:)

Well, Halloween is passed and what's the next holiday in line??? Thanksgiving Feast, boy looking forward to eating good food and spending quality time with family and love ones:) its going to be a
rush holiday schedule coming up!  Are you ready for the holiday??

This month I wanted to share my favs and discover about coconuts!  I love coconuts specially the fresh
one and their juice. I have come to enjoy this fruit that we grow alot from the homeland (Philippines) I discover all the good benefits about coconuts.  Lets me start sharing with y'all the benefits of coconut water.  It naturally rehydrate the body with electrolytes due to exercise, consumption of alcoholic or caffeinated beverages.  It also excellent source of  potassium, which potassium helps regulate blood pressure and heart function. For those with dry skin pay attention, it also may help promote smoother , more hydrated skin which equals to less wrinkles<3 who wouldn't love that!  It has 15 times the amount of potassium as most sports drinks and more potassium than one banana!  And no fat, no cholesterol and

the best one no preservatives.  I encourage you to try coconut juice next time and enjoy the good benefits it offers.  Next time, I will share about the coconut oil and all the excellent benefits that comes along with this fruit.

Dry Skin Brushing

Hello Beauties,

I heard about this dry brushing technique long time ago.  Heard it on one of the TV talk show, which I do not remember which one:( This beautiful model/actress shared little bit info. She was mentioning that its one of her daily beauty routine keeping her skin healthy and glowing.  At that moment, I wasn't too interested about this dry skin brushing.  I thought you have to go a spa to get this special treatment!  How i got interested about this dry brushing, as some you know that i had a jogging accident last weekend, I did hurt myself pretty bad and finally starting to feel better:) I suffered minor scrapes and sore with very tenderness knees up to this day.  My wounds on both knees are starting to heal but still look awful and having soreness around the area.  My lymph nodes in both legs were affected with the scrapes i  got  after the day of the little accident.  Well to make this story short, I kinda got interested about our lymph nodes in our body?  So I did some reading and research.  As when doing this research, I happened to read one the blog I follow religiously and her article was dry skin brushing. She was mentioning all the good benefits and how its good for detoxification inside our system. So I got so interested that I did some deep looking about this technique.  There's really  good benefits for our health.

You just have to spend a few minutes removing dead skin cells before your shower in the morning. But wait, here's more good benefits  it will also help get rid of cellulite, cleans the lymphatic system ( this is the one I really really like :D, and removes dead skins.  There's more, dry skin brushing helps stimulates hormonal glands, strengthen the immune system, stimulates circulation and much more good benefits.  So I am sold already!!!  To this day it is still popular in European spas and many cancer treatment center.

Here's a few tips it you'd like to try this yourself:

1. Dry brush you dry naked body before your shower or bathe preferably in the morning.

2. Use circular motions or long sweeping strokes starting the bottom of your feet upwards and towards
     your heart and not away.
3. Use lighter pressure as the skin is more sensitive when you work your way up.  No need to make your
    skin hurt!!
4. Finish up with your regular shower and ending with hot and cold cycles, (3X).  This will further in-
    vigorate your skin and stimulate blood circulation, bringing more blood to the outer layers of the skin.
5. Use a brush with natural bristle and not synthetic.  Look for one with the long handle with a detach-
    able head for flexible access to hard to reach areas.

You can find this kind of skin brush at any natural food market, Wal-Mart, Target and Health Food stores.  Better yet, online shopping is more convenient.

I hope i got you interested in this dry skin brushing, a good way to detoxify, the natural way!!!


BTW, I ordered mine thru this websites:

Beauty tip for this week!!!!

Hello Beauties,

Want a skin tightener that doesn't  cost a lot in your pocket???
Here's good tip you can try at home, spread warm, wet coffee grounds on face and throat and let set for 30 seconds. The caffeine will tighten and firm the skin.  Rinse with warm water and you'll see those pesky wrinkles outta sight:)  I know you are going ask me how about just freshly brewed coffee grind from this morning coffee?  My answer to that is YES, but just do it right after your freshly brewed coffee is done and let the ground cool off a bit, you don't wanna burn your beautiful face!!!!
