Shea Butter Benefits-Encourage Collagen!

I LOVE shea butter.  It's in my top 5 DIY ingredient must-haves but I actually don't always end up putting it in a recipe.  I like to use it all on it's own!  Shea butter has so many amazing properties.  Basically, you get a lot of bang for your buck with shea butter.   Shea butter has tons of uses and offers so many benefits for not only the skin but also the hair! Shea butter comes from the nuts of the shea tree in western parts of Africa.  It has been used for centuries to nourish skin and … [Read more...]

DIY Antioxidant Additive….Add a Kick to Your Skin Care Routine!

Back in my facial days I used Dermalogica.  Speaking of green washing.....  Anyway-that's another post but while under the disguise of being natural, they had some really creative products that I enjoyed using in my treatments.  One that I clearly remember were their additives.  They came in these small (1 ounce) tin bottles and had somewhat of an oily consistency.   They were used by adding them into other products.  They smelled heavenly and I always added them into the mask and sometimes into … [Read more...]

I used to be a facialist and prided myself on creating an "experience" for my clients.  It was important for me to not only improve the client's skin-I also wanted to thoroughly relax them.  My facials consisted of lots of steam, massage, exfoliation and nourishment with little to no extractions.  Since I no longer work at a spa, and I'm such a DIYer, an at-home spa is the only way to go!  I thought it might be fun to give you an inside look from a former aethetician and learn how to re-create a … [Read more...]

Hyaluronic Pumpkin Serum DIY

A new hyaluronic acid post has been a long time coming.  My first HA recipe HERE has been my most viewed post since I published it but I haven't played with the ingredient since.  I've been wanting to explore botanical extracts as well but since most of those need to be in a water based solution, I had put them on the back burner.  Then it dawned on me-a 1% hyaluronic solution would be the perfect base for extracts and I've been experimenting ever since!  Plus, it's fall and PUMPKIN IS IN.  What … [Read more...]
