November Ready!!

Hello gang!! This year is going by soo fast, I can’t believe it’s already November?! The holidays are so close and its time to switch that beauty routine! When seasons change we all want to make some small tweaks to our makeup and skincare to transition from fall to winter. Here are a few things you can try to switch up this cold season:

1.  Switch Foundations. Around this time of the year it is nice to switch your dewy foundation to matte foundations, powder formulas, mattifying primers. In the cooler months try to go for a cooler foundation rather than a warmer tone that may be too tan.

2.  Different Lip Care. We usually neglect our lips during the warmer months but we have to pay extra attention to them during the colder seasons. Cool air can cause more chapping and that is no good when you are trying to wear matte lipsticks!! One of my personal favorite lip balms is Rosebud Perfume Co. Rosebud Salve.

3. Add Oil. Light-weight and oil free moisturizers is what many avoid during the heat but with the cold weather it is nice to switch to a heavier moisturizer or even an oil! It depends on every skin type if oil can be used, if it works for you it will make your skin feel so hydrated!! Make sure to use some oil on your hair and body as well to keep it moisturized!!

4.  Play with red. Who doesn’t love nude and blush shades, but during the cold season is fun to play with different shades of red. Maybe a maroon sweater, a vampy lip color, or a burgundy manicure like Essie Wicked. Red comes in so many shades and this is the time switch it up!!

Those are a few things to change as winter approaches!! What are some things you do differently during the cold seasons? Let me know in the comments!

Remember… Keep it beautiful!!

XOXO

Time to Replace That BEAUTY BLENDER!!

Hello my beauty fans!

How many of you use a Beauty Blender?! More and more people are using this iconic beauty invention to get well-blended foundation. If you have not tried one I suggest you do to get flawless looking makeup or look into using a dupe such as the Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge. This sponge is amazing but it can absorb bacteria and cause breakouts!! It is very important to wash it and know when it is time to replace it!

One of the first few things you should look for is if your Beauty Blender has rips or is starting to flake. If it is loosing its shape then it is time to throw it away and get a new one!! I suggest you should replace your Beauty Blender every two months if you were makeup several days a week but if you don’t wear makeup you can push it a little bit longer. Do not push it anymore than 3 months!! That will not be good for your skin.

If you are starting to get mystery breakouts and you cannot target exactly why you should evaluate if you are eating right, drinking enough water, and staying on top of your skin care. If you are doing all things right and you are still breaking out then it might be because of your Beauty Blender!! If that is the case throw it away and buy a new one, even if it is sooner than two months.

Now that we have that covered there is one thing to remember! All of us love to have flawless looking makeup but it is important you wash your tools, including a beauty sponge. If you fail to do this it will affect your skin and defeat the purpose of your skincare!! Flawless makeup starts with healthy skin!!

Natural/Organic Tattoo Aftercare

Hello my beauty lovers! I'm sorry for being MIA but today I will be sharing some information  we will be talking about another natural/organic product for tattoo aftercare…. COCONUT OIL!! This can be used as the perfect tattoo aftercare balm.

This is not the first time I have talked about coconut oil on my blog and there is a reason so many people are starting to always have a bottle at home because of its multiple uses.  Coconut oil can be used in your tattoo aftercare routine as a soothing lotion with great healing properties. I spoke with Dan, a Master of Fine Arts and a member AuthorityTattoo (AuthorityTattoo.com) about how to care for your tattoo with coconut oil. He taught me a few things and I want to share this information with you all today!!

Take a look below to see why 100% natural, organic and vegan-friendly coconut oil could be the best tattoo-healing product for you and your new ink.

Remember, a tattoo is a lifelong investment and this includes care and maintenance to keep it healthy and vibrant for years to come!!

Remember… Keep it beautiful!!

Cold Seasons Call for Cryotherapy!!

Hi my loves!!

A few months ago I went to a Korean spa and saw many people going into this cold room willing to freeze their butts off! I was so confused but I started to see on social media more and more people around the world go for this type of treatment. I decided to look more into it and found out about cryotherapy spas!!

This is called, Whole Body Cryotherapy (WBC), the exposure to subzero temperatures.  Can this really be beneficial for your skin?! The answer is YES. Extreme cold stimulates skin sensors and this activates the Central Nervous System response. This causes the release of endorphins, the body’s natural pain inhibitors and mood elevators. It also, enhances circulation activity, clears toxins and metabolic waste with a supply of oxygen and nutrient enriched blood to stimulate cellular regeneration. Many athletes use this sort of treatment for management of pain, inflammation, energy, and stress related conditions.

Other benefits:

·      Increase caloric burn

·      Boost your metabolic rate

·      Reduce fine facial lines and wrinkles

·      Promotes smooth complexion

·      Increases oxygenated blood

·      Decreases inflammation

·      Improves sleep and combats insomnia

·      Reduces stress and anxiety

·      Improves immune system and organ function

 

After reading all the benefits I am willing to give it a shot!! I want to go to a cryotherapy spa… Do any of you have any recommendations or been yourself?! If so let me know and if you have experienced the benefits!!

Remember… Keep it beautiful!!

XOXO

Gregory

Summer Hair Repair Tips!!

From overly frizzy tresses and chlorine-tinged color, when it comes to summer there are many steps needed to be taken to help repair your hair:

1. During this time it is best to bury your blow dryer with your winter clothes and embrace your natural texture in summer!

2. Find the right lightweight leave-in conditioner for your hair and use it post-wash only to your ends.

3. Chlorine is not your friend during summer that is why your hair needs the Fekkai Apple Cider Vinegar shampoo!

    This is great for chlorine build up and a must for blondes (or your hair will turn green)!!

4. Avoid, over cleansing. After washing your hair make sure to apply your favorite frizz controlling product while hair are still damp.

5. Just how SPF is necessary for your skin, UV protectant spray is a must during summer!

My First Beauty Haul Video!!!

Oh wow, now this was fun!!! My first drugstore beauty haul video on my YouTube channel! I found some super fab and fun finds in skincare and makeup at CVS and Target. I give you the scoop on why I decide to try them and what I'm hoping for in regards to results. Then I wrap it up with a mini-review at the end of the video so I can give you the scoop on whether or not the products  were "fab" or "flop".

Do you have any fave drugstore finds?! I really did like a few of these, others...well...you have to watch and see!!
