Tips & Tricks #6

  1. Kate Spade Canvas HatWarm weather is approaching, keep your skin protected!  Avoiding being in direct sunlight between 10am-2pm if possible.  Always wear sunscreen 30 spf or higher, wear a hat and sunglasses to shade your face.  I love that floppy hats are back in.  How cute is this one for the beach or pool!!
  2. Finding the time to apply a facial mask can be difficult (we are all busy!).  Apply it in the shower after cleansing, shave your legs, then rinse off the mask.
  3. Apply moisturizer and body lotion to the skin immediately after getting out of the shower while the skin is still damp, this will lock the moisture in.
  4. Orange is such a hot trend right now, but a very hard color for most people to wear.  Look for a coral-orange or pink-orange, these colors are more flattering.
  5. Spring break is here!  If you quickly want to shed some pounds, eat a diet high in protein and veggies, berries, apples and tons of water.

Peter Thomas Roth Mega Rich Intensive Anti-Aging Eye Cream. My eye area has never been softer! I feel my fine lines softening and they are not as noticeable.

Fresh Soy Face Serum.  Fresh just keeps doing it right!  I apply this to a clean face before my moisturizer.  It locks in moisture and creates a barrier between my skin and the elements.  It firms and hydrates the skin, noticeable improvements over time of using it.  And, it makes my skin feel like silk!  Perfect for applying my foundation!
