Facial Oils vs. Facial Creams-Which one is better?

Which form of moisturizer is more effective-a lotion or an oil?  I've been getting this question a lot lately and have come to form a very strong opinion on the debate!  Let me break this question down and shed some light on the inner workings of both products. Lotions are OH SO creamy, cold and lovely, right?!  I agree.  I love me a lotion, especially when I make it myself.  There's just something about slathering a cream on your skin and literally seeing your skin drink it up.  The thing … [Read more...]

coQ10 Skin Benefits Plus DIY Facial Oil!

I'm sure most of you have heard of coQ10.  It's a buzz word in the skin care industry.  Today, let's talk about what coQ10 is, why it benefits our skin and how we can make a SUPER SIMPLE product with coQ10 in it!! coQ10 is somewhat similar to hyaluronic acid and collagen.  Our bodies naturally produce all 3.  As we get older, our bodies production slacks off and the result is lost firmness and elasticity.  Basically, before the age of 20, our body produces coQ10 in abundance.  Age 30 hits, … [Read more...]

DIY Eucalyptus Lemon Heel Salve

Heels are such a problem, especially in cold weather months!  Heck, they're a problem in the summer too!  Going barefoot wreaks havoc on the bottoms of feet.  In fact, speaking of summer, have you ever had super cute sandals on only to ruin it with heels that look like they belong to a 100 year old?!  The best thing for heels is consistency.  Keeping that heel file handy and having a nourishing foot balm is key.  Today, you guessed-let's make a heel salve!! I have been making this recipe for … [Read more...]

My DIY Skin Care Routine…

I feel like I've hit my stride when it comes to my skin care routine.  I've had months that I've used all Eminence or all Juice Beauty but never have I used all DIY products and had my skin look this hydrated and radiant.  That's the honest truth.  I've always loved DIY skin care but good results were not always the case.  I guess the longer I write this blog-the more research I do, the more ingredients I try and the more success I have with the products I'm creating.  I just wanted to drop in … [Read more...]

DIY Beauty Sleep In a Bottle

Lately I think I've found just the right skin care routine.  I'm going to share that later on this week (it's all DIY products), but today I wanted to share with you one DIY that I've been using for some time now and my skin has really responded to it.  It's a super simple product to make-no heat required.  The most important thing is to not skimp on each individual ingredient.  Get quality oils and you'll make a quality product that would sell for $100+ in an exclusive skin care line.  Let's … [Read more...]

A New, EASY Method for applying Vitamin C!

One of my most popular DIY skin care posts was my Vitamin C Serum recipe.  Vitamin C is one of the most amazing anti aging ingredients that we all should be incorporating into our beauty routine.  I'm going to tell you why in a bit.  The problem with Vitamin C is that when it is not in a powdered form, it is very unstable.  That means, it will go bad quickly and not be effective once it's added to a liquid.  My vitamin C serum, while lots of readers have raved about it's benefits, is a pain … [Read more...]
