How To Get Silky Sun-Kissed Glowing Skin

18622628_10210692806208718_4739854872455109920_n

In the world of body oils, there’s a fine line between glowing like a Goddess rising from the Brazilian surf and shimmering like a sixth-grader heading to a school dance.

Achieving a “sun-kissed” look is the goal of many during the summer, and even in the months beyond — the right mixture of color and sparkle has the power to elevate a good tan, and even make pale skin look like it occasionally sees the sunlight. Living in Florida, I’m expected to be gloriously tan pretty much 365 days of the year, mostly by my New York friends & family. I’m so excited about this luxurious product enhancing my Florida glow.

This summer it’s all about that glitter and glow. I love the fact that this is a dry oil infused with glimmer & it’s non greasy! The oil magically absorbs into your skin almost instantly and doesn’t leave any oily residue. I loved that you get an obvious glow without looking greasy or sweaty, just an amazing silky glow.

This shimmering oil leaves the skin soft, smooth and glowing. Subtle gold particles add alluring shimmer to exposed areas or gloss to lustrous hair. While gold flecks highlight skin beautifully, this is the most impressive of treatment oils, infused with Argania Spinosa Oil, Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Oil, & Shea Butter Oil.

For $17.50, you can experience this luxury …A definite MUST TRY!

Great Summer Starter!

Wash Your Face with a Potato?!?

Konjiac.png

What is the Konjac Sponge?

Ever heard of a konjac sponge? It’s true the konjac sponge makes a fabulous facial treatment! Well, to start, it might be interesting to know that konjac actually comes from a potato-like plant in Asia that is both cultivated and grows wild at high altitudes. Konjac sponges are made from the dried and ground root of the konjac, that’s native to Asia. These squishy sponges are used in your cleansing routine to help you more effectively dislodge, dirt, oil, and blackheads. The Japanese have used Konjac for over 1500 years as a food source and over the last century have been using the Konjac potato as a beauty treatment. The Konjac sponge has been handmade from the vegetable fibre of this plant along with French clays and some contain pure charcoal from bamboo. As a result, the Konjac sponge is extremely gentle and 100% biodegradable – you can compost it when it’s time for a new one.

What Does the Konjac Sponge Do?

I’m a big fan of body brushing for its ability to increase circulation, exfoliate and cleanse pores. A konjac sponge is like body brushing for your face. It’s also helpful for dry patches, acne, blackheads and eczema.

Konjac naturally nourishes with vitamins A, B, C, D and E, proteins, lipids, fatty acids, copper, zinc, iron, and magnesium. This wonder veggie even has antioxidants and has historically been used to suppress tumors. Unlike other exfoliators that harm the environment, konjac is completely natural, non-toxic, and biodegradable (no harmful plastic microbeads needed!)

The Konjac sponge is an extremely gentle cleanser for both face and body. I have two separate sponges, one for my body and one for my face. The sponge acts as a gentle exfoliator, rubbing off dead skin cells in the most delicate manner. The extra soft texture means that its ok for anyone to use,  babies included (they even have a sponge for babies too!). While this won’t replace your makeup remover (eye makeup more specifically) it can gently take off much of your face makeup in a matter of minutes.

Better yet, the konjac sponge has enough innate cleansing properties on its own that some people have success using it with just water.

How Do I Use the Konjac Sponge?

When you pick up your sponge it will be dry and hard. You will need to wet it under warm water until it’s completely soaked through and soft. Once it is wet and puffy, simply use the flat side in a circular motion around your face to exfoliate and remove dirt and grime. This circular massaging will stimulate tired skin & encourage skin renewal – and we can all use a bit of that!

Konjac sponges feel finer than washcloths, and they’re softer than loofahs and many other face exfoliators. A water barrier forms over the surface of the sponge which makes it feel very slick (almost slimy), but in a good way. Because of its bouncy, rubbery texture, it makes a rich lather using less cleanser than you’d normally need with a washcloth. It dries quickly in between uses to prevent bacteria or mold from building up in it, whereas a washcloth might stay damp in between uses. When you replace them often (about 2-3 months) there’s no danger of using a dirty, moldy germ-infested sponge on your visage.

The texture is a little similar to the typical white makeup sponges.

  1. When you first get a konjac sponge you’ll notice it’s small and hard. Soak the sponge in warm water for about 15 minutes or until almost doubled in size before the first use. Once you’ve used it, it will only need soaking for a minute or two before it softens and expands to about one and a half times its size.
  2. Gently squeeze (don’t twist!) the excess water out by pressing the konjac sponge between your palms. Don’t be rough with it. Apply a small amount of cleanser (if desired), or just use the sponge plain.
  3. Rub the konjac sponge on the face in upward, circular motions. Concentrate on dry or blackhead-prone areas. It’s a mild exfoliator, so it may feel like you need to scrub hard to get it to work, but that isn’t necessary. These sponges will remove dirt, sunscreen, and even makeup. (You may need to use a little bit of coconut oil to remove heavy eye makeup though.)
  4. Rinse the konjac sponge well with cool water and gently squeeze the excess water out by pressing the sponge between your palms. Don’t twist, wring, or pull on it.
  5. Hang it to dry, or put it on a rack so there’s airflow. Alternately, you can keep the sponge in a sealed container in your fridge. Make sure to store it away from light and humidity. Right next to your steamy shower isn’t the best option.

How Long Will My Sponge Last & How to Care for It?

Like all good things, it must come to an end, but not for at least 2 – 3 months depending on how you care for it. By ensuring that it completely dries out in between uses (there is a handy string for that) and that your sponge is never wrung out (always press between your hands to remove excess water during use), you will give your sponge a longer life.

Make sure that before and after each use, you rinse the sponge well – you can disinfect your sponge every other week by boiling it for a few minutes (but don’t do this too often, as again it will break down the fibers faster).

When it starts to break apart and deteriorate, it is time for a  new sponge. Simply compost this sponge (it is 100% natural material, and completely safe – and earth friendly – to do so). You can even put it in the bottom of a potted plant to help retain moisture in the soil – yes, it is that natural!

I am in love with this product, so I would love to hear from any of you who have used the Konjac Sponge.

Now that you know what they are, why wait… pick one up for yourself here!

What is collagen? Collagen is “the glue” that holds the body together and is the most abundant structural protein in the body. Collagen makes up 60% of the body’s connective tissue and collagen represents 80% of all connective tissue.

Because 75% of the skin (dermis) consists of collagen and it accounts for 90% of skin volume, having adequate collagen levels helps to keep skin walls ridged and prevents ugly and unwanted cellulite (body fat) from appearing (oozing through weak cell walls).

As we age the body loses collagen at a rate of approximately 1.5% per year after the age of 30.

As the skin walls are strengthened with higher collagen levels, more moisture is retained and the skin looks firmer, more hydrated and surface dryness is diminished.

The skin becomes thicker and the appearance of the cellulite pits and bumps disappears.

Cellulite problems disappear as the skin cells are strengthened due to increased production of collagen which makes the cell walls more ridged and fat does not ooze through. Problem areas of the skin becomes more youthful, becomes more elastic and returns to a normal appearance.

Higher collagen levels in the body result in the entire body actually undergoing a physical change which results in more youthful look and very visible appearance change.

Marine Collagen can:

  • Help improve the skin and balance skin tones
  • Reduce the appearance of acne, eczema, and even scars from minor cuts
  • Helps reverse skin dryness, pigmentation and discoloration due to sun damage
  • Reduce dryness by increasing moisture retention in the skin
  • Stimulates collagen and elastin production to keep skin firm and supple
  • Restore hair growth levels and thickens hair
  • Boosts nail health and makes nails stronger and less brittle while reducing splits
  • Works to regenerate skin cells and restore cell wall strength
  • Decreasing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines
  • Aids in increasing lubrication at the joints to reduce joint pain and inflammation
  • Improves mobility and increases range of motion of joints
  • Helps increase collagen production to more youthful levels
  • Slows down of the natural aging process

Success Habits of Wealthy People You Can Do Now!

oie_I7x2ntOpQ1Kt.jpg

Did you ever notice how certain people have gotten so successful? What sets them apart from the rest of us? Is it a great idea, motivation, persistence, a little luck? I have been studying the mindset of successful people I cross paths with, I’ve learned they ALL share certain habits! Although this isn’t breaking news, this has been around since Plato, Socrates and many, many others. Do we really understand all those famous sayings?

Well those sayings are all keys to changing your mediocre mindset into a BILLIONAIRE mindset!

Here are some habits they all had in common:

Don’t watch TV instead read

Yep, no newspaper or gossip magazines, it’s ALL about self-improvement! I stopped watching TV a long time ago & read something related to bettering my life as a whole, whether it be about health, wealth building, happiness or love. It’s all about mindset!

According to Thomas Corley, author of “Rich Habits: The Daily Success Habits Of Wealthy Individuals,” 67 percent of rich people only watch TV for one hour or less per day. He also found only 6 percent of the wealthy watch reality shows, while 78 percent of the poor do. Additionally, 86 percent of the wealthy love to read with an impressive 88 percent claiming that they read for self-improvement for 30 minutes or more per day.

When you’re focused on bettering yourself, you don’t have time for other people’s drama or negative influence. Walk away!!

Make your to-do lists the night before

I started this habit a while ago also, it helps keep you on target for what is important to achieve for that day. We all seem to get distracted throughout the day, life happens, BUT when you have a to-do list you know exactly what is your priority & what you can put on your list for the next day. Successful people are known for writing their to-do-lists the night before so that they are able to set priorities for the following day. They number their lists as well to identify which tasks are the most important. Hummm…good idea!

Meditate

Meditation, more than anything in my life was the biggest ingredient of whatever success I’ve had. It gives you a chance to connect to a higher source & look within for your next moves! This is so TRUE!!  Oprah, Rupert Murdoch, Russell Simmons, Arianna Huffington & Bill Ford have all attributed mediation as a huge component to their success.

Taking care of your body and mind by relaxing, exercising, healthy eating and getting enough sleep are all ways to improve your chances of success. Need an answer to something you’re not sure what your next move should be? MEDITATE on it! You’ll be amazed I promise.

Find your productive hours

OK so this is one that only YOU can predict what will work for you. Find your MOST productive hours. For me I’m a night owl, I work best from 10pm-3am, I wake up at 7am but I really don’t focus on my business until MY productive hours. This is when you’re less likely to be interrupted. So either early morning or late at night. Find your most productive hours!  How has this attributed to their success? Because when you find your most productive hours you can focus ONLY on you, your business or whatever goals you are achieving. You will also tend to be happier and are more proactive.

Network, network, NETWORK

Successful people realize the importance of networking. In fact, research has found that networking can lead to people performing better at work and increases the chance of landing a job. Networking helps successful people be more innovative. According to Dale Carnegie’s classic “How To Win Friends & influence People,” successful people rarely complain or criticize. They are sincere and try to be empathetic. No matter WHAT you are looking for, you will find it through networking! Get out there & network, make influential friends…You know that saying, want to know about a person, look at their friends. Remember, you are who your friends are!

Know when to say “no”

Successful people realize that by saying “no” to negativity, extra work and activities that waste time, they can focus on increasing their productivity. If they say “yes” to everyone or everything, they’ll be too distracted and will not accomplish tasks that have to be done. I’m sure we can all relate to this one. Say no to anyone or anything that doesn’t make you feel good! Walk away from negativity & the “pity potters”. Using this tip will save you from lots of resentment! BTW, I’m still working on this one.

Set goals and visualize

OK so there is a lot of controversy about “The Secret” which is the Law of Attraction. Now before you huff & puff hear me out. The Law of Attraction is just as real as the Law of Gravity, it’s a Universal Law. So just because you chose not to believe it, it doesn’t mean it does not exist! Once you feel the emotion to match your goal (visualize), you will align with this UNIVERSAL Law & amazing things begin to happen. You REALLY gotta believe it to Achieve it!

95% of the successful achievers practice writing down their goals, plans, or visions for success on a regular basis (I have a Vision Board!). Successful people do this the night before, or first thing in the morning so that they are prepared to tackle the challenges that await them. Huh go figure! I’m happy to report I’m mastering this one 🙂

Learn how to manage your money

Everyone wants money or to be rich right? BUT are you actually ready to handle the amount of money you are asking for? If not get cracking! You can’t depend on someone else to manage your money for you without any knowledge. Look at what happened to Mike Tyson, M.C. Hammer, Toni Braxton, Debbie Reynolds, Sinbad & many others are just a SMALL example of what can go really wrong when you are ignorant when it comes to money!

Successful people have gotten where they are because they were able to manage their finances well. This means that they invest their money wisely, look for new opportunities and set aside emergency funds. They are more generous and willing to donate to those who need help.

There is an old saying that luck and preparation always meet opportunity. The most successful people set themselves up for success by preparing all the time. Successful people expect luck will find them, and it usually does!! Keep LEARNING! Knowledge is Power!

Most of us tend to have the perception that all celebrities & the elite live like kings and queens, without a care in the world. In reality though, many face financial hardships like the rest of us. From poor money management to other financial woes, despite their fame and previous fortunes, wind up broke. BUT with knowledge from past experiences (I don’t like saying mistakes, we all learn from good & bad) & awareness we can go from rags to riches at any moment we chose. YES, it can & DOES happen.

In the end it’s all about mindset. Dr. Wayne Dyer’s famous saying: Change the Way You See at Things & the Things You See Will Change!

So are you ready to make your change? Let me know what you’re ready to do!
