Will cutting dairy cause your breakouts to stop?!

It is important to cleanse your face and use the right skincare but it is only half of what it takes to achieve a clear, glowing complexion. You can give your skin the best treatment but sometimes not see results and this can be very frustrating! This is why what put into your body is just as important as what you put onto your face! May diary be the reason why your skin does not seem to clear up?

After reading an article about Khloe Kardashian cutting out dairy and how it contributed to her 11-pound weight loss in just six weeks I decided it was time to inform you guys a little on what dairy can do to your skin. It can cause your skin to create excess oil (sebum), which clogs pores, and it can cause dead skin cells to bind to one another, leading to more acne. Dairy contains growth hormones and cause inflammation! Once again this can lead to acne!

We all love ice cream during the warm weather and who doesn’t want to get froyo on a warm summer night?! Everyone enjoys some cheese too and if you’re like me you love to ask for some extra cheese (you know you’re guilty too)! How about this summer we all try limiting our diary intake to two servings a day or try replacing dairy with some alternatives! Ben and Jerry’s offers non-dairy flavors so whenever you have a sweet tooth craving why not try their Chunky Monkey flavor!! If cutting down dairy works for you let me know you can even take before and afters to see what difference it will make on your skin!

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!

Let your skin breathe!!

Summer is closer than ever which means beach days, pool parties, lounging with friends is right around the corner!! It is time to get ready and be your best beautiful self this summer. It is important to remember your skin needs to breathe especially during the summer heat. That is why I always recommend to not use anything too heavy or creamy for summer. Instead take advantage of this time to help any congestion you may have with a deep-cleansing mud mask. Incorporating this to your skincare regimen twice a week will allow to help draw out impurities and detoxify the skin. One of my personal favorites and budget friendly is Freeman Feeling Beautiful Clay Mask, Avocado & Oatmeal.

This clay mask is a must-have since it is gentle but effective. It will act as a vacuum and soak up all the traces of dirt and grease! Make sure to follow up with a gentle moisturizer at night or sunblock during the day!!

Remember… Keep it beautiful!!

XOXO

Eating your way to glowing, healthy, summer skin!

Summer food is always so light and delicious, totally a person fave! And also very much on par with how we eat here in SoCal all year long since it's pretty much almost always "summer". (I know, I know, I'm always bragging about SoCal weather...sorrrrry Midwest and East Coast friends! LOL)

I loved this quick read on the Huff P about 9 foods to put in your Summer diet to give you amazing skin! It's full of berries, fish and greens that are not only delicious but help to nourish, protect and replenish the skin from the inside out!

Do you have a fave Summer dish that's also great for the skin? I know that after this I'm totally craving salmon and berries!! Nomonomnom!

xoxo,

Gregory

SUMMERIZE YOUR SKIN!

Summer is officially here! Great news for your social life, but not so great for your skin. More time outdoors means more exposure to harsh sun and skin-zapping free radicals while all those sunday fundays take a toll as well. Keep that pretty selfie-maker clean, glowing and protected with just a few simple, beauty expert approved steps!

1) Lighten Up: Oil glands work overtime in the heat of the summer, so the last thing we need is to slather on our luxe cooler weather moisturizer. Try a refreshing hydrating gel! SAMPAR’s 3-Day Weekend is a cooling, gel-based drink of water for the skin that melts right in, leaving no residue. Use a thin layer as an impromptu hydrating facial mask or store in the fridge for an icy skin treat. ($55, available at Gregory Dylan Beauty

2) Use Protection: Most people think sunscreen has to be a thick white mess they would rather not deal with. Not anymore, SPF products have come a long way. Find one that is lightweight and silky with at least an SPF of 30. My favorite is L’Oreal Sublime Sun SPF 50. This liquid silk formula glides on without any white residue or oiliness. (available at most drug stores And it’s a steal at around $10.)

3) You been drinkin’: And I’m guessing it’s not water. We’re all guilty here. Daytime fun goes hand in hand with cocktails. Deliciously dehydrating, alcohol robs the skin and body of vital hydration. Try the “Pause and Pose”. Take a break between drinks to toss down a bottle of water and get the day’s perfect, filter-free selfie. Your face (and body) will thank you tomorrow and all the “likes” will be well worth it!
