I was recently told about a new all natural product that removes makeup, keeps your skin hydrated and keeps you from being oily! I was super excited because I am always looking for a one stop shop for my skin! I tried it and LOVED it! It even removed my water proof eyeliner and eyelash glue! Then I noticed the next morning that my skin looked fresh and I didn’t have any blemishes AND my face wasn’t oily! I was in LOVE!!!! So I started doing a little research on line and found that my same new favorite beauty product also was great for my hair! So I immediately put it on my ends of my hair and worked it into the rest of my strands! Low and behold my curls were revived and my flyways gone AND my hair smelled amazing! I was thrilled! That night I washed my hair and after I dried it I noticed that my hair had retained its shine and softness! It felt hydrated and full of life! SO ok I know…you want to know what this product could possibly be…and how expensive is it…Well….Its coconut butter!!! You can buy it at HEB for under 10.00!!! The BEST part about my little coconut revelation is that you can substitute it for oil for in your cooking and save calories! That’s right ladies it is great for your waist too! I am now converted into a coconut fanatic! Who would have known that all this time there was something that did all these amazing thing?! I really hope you try this out! Let me know how much you love using coconut butter and if I have turned you into a believer!
With the New Year started it is a good time to begin healthy skin habits! We only have one face so we have to be sure to treat it right! Here are a few quick and easy tips to jump start this year as your best skin yet!
Be sure to drink lots and lots of water!—-we all know this but sometimes we would rather have a soda than water…But remember that water flushes out toxins, makes our skin glow, and is zero calories!
Use a Moisturizer!—- Using a moisturizer daily works wonders for our skin! It hydrates your cells and makes your skin look plump and not dry! Keep in mind that dry skin looks older…and no one wants that!!!!! Bonus*** our foundation looks smoother when you use a moisturizer!
Sun Protection is a Must—- We have to protect our skin with SPF…sun spots or age spots show up later in life from over exposure to sunlight. These spots can make you look older and it is better to prevent than to correct! It is important to use sun block every day! We are receiving sunlight even through the clouds and through the windows in our cars!
Apply an Eye Cream—The skin under our eyes is the thinnest on our bodies (which means it is the most delicate) Using an eye cream keeps that skin elastic and moisturized. In many woman this is where their first signs of aging begin… It is never too early to begin using an eye cream!
I hope you are able to incorporate some of these changes to your beauty regimen! Enjoy your skin and take care of it! Let me know if you how these changes have helped you and what are some of your favorite ways to keep your skin beautiful!
