My Top 4 Cold Weather Tips

Cold air, winds and indoor heat can really do a number on your skin. As soon as winter starts to sneak in, I feel the dryness settle in on my face, hands and especially my lips right away.  Adding moisture to your skincare for cold weather is an absolute must.

  • Reevaluate your skin care routines based on the season. As the seasons change, the needs of your skin will change too. This means changing products according to your skin needs.
  • Keep hot showers shorter. Hot water can really soak up your skin moisture.
  • Find the right moisturizer. For winter skin, look for something thick that will really provide deep moisture and good coverage.
  • Hydrate, Hydrate and Hydrate! I know I say this all the time with my posts, but in the dry winter air, hydration is more important than ever. Your skin is starving for it.

Do you have any cold weather skincare tips? Please let me know on the comment space below. :)

Women of Color

Skincare for women of color is a little different to care of than traditional skincare we often gossip about. Women with dark skin are actually more susceptible to ashy tones, sun and UV damage and even skin discoloration. Great hair and skin care includes choosing products that have good moisturizing qualities and sun protection for colored skin.

I recommend:

Hair: Mizani Hair Products:
Immerse your hair in a luxurious blend of pure oils at every step in the haircare process. These product line are filled with moisturizers. You’ll love your hair like never before.

Cosmetics and Skin Care:
There are so many amazing lines out there. I do like Iman Cosmetics they are filled also with  ingredients including Vitamins A, E, & C, essential oils, and antioxidants derived from plant & fruit extracts to optimize the overall health of your skin. This line is especially formulated for women of color.

Hope you enjoed this post. Please refer and follow me.

Thank you

Hot Oil Treatments

 I have tried coconut oil and it really works wonderfully. I have not tried the other oils but I will soon just to compare. These are oils so a little goes a long way. Make sure to wash your hair twice with shampoo to eliminate that greasy look. You can use these oils with a Scalp Treatment as well, I personally use deep conditioners. Please see pic below for a how to tutorial.
 *It is important for scalp massages, to have blood flowing on the scalp especially for MEN. It slows down hair loss.
 Please read another post on more information about the importance of SCALP CARE. Let me know your favorite Oil Products which I will try as well.
I want to thank everyone for the lovely comments on my posts. I really appreciated. Please refer and follow my blog. :)

50 Shades of Grey Hair Color Care

Thanks for dropping by. No, I did not mean the book 50 Shades but I mean the Grey Hair Color. lol. Wether is colored grey, natural gray or MEN GREY hair remember moisture is the key to keep your locks alive.. Moisturizing shampoo and conditioner. Moisture Please!!!  Then, spray on and comb through a leave-in conditioner, and if at all possible let it air dry, sometimes using a shine product (serum) through it when it's almost dry helps control those stubborn greys.
Before using the heat irons, spray on a heat protector, and after have it curled. You can also use a smoothing cream, rub it on your hands, and then lightly run your fingers through your hair, underside first so it doesn't go on too heavy on top. Then, hairspray for fine hair, and I use a touch of sculpting gel on my part to try to minimize flyaways. Which there's only so much you can do about those, but when they're gray they're more noticeable, so do what you can.
Beyond products, regular hair cuts are super important. You've got to keep gray hair healthy and trimmed, no matter what the length. A trim makes a huge difference in manageability, and if your hair is ever looking raggedy or driving you crazy with tangles and flyaways, the first thing you should think about is, when did you last get it cut.

Vitamin Blend for Glowing Skin

What you eat can have a big impact on your skin. Now a days everyone is food blending their food into smoothie. I can not blend my spinach to drink for breakfast. It just doesn't sound appealing. Instead of blending foods with these 3 vitamins to make a smoothie why not take the vitamin pills?

So much faster and easier as 1, 2, 3! Buy 3 bottles of these 3 vitamins and I promise it will make you skin glow. It will not happen over night but trust me when I say your skin will thank you! Vitamin A, E, and D equals glowing skin.

Beat the AGING clock. Can you?

Tik Toc, Tik Toc

As the clock ticks and people age, their hair and skin begin to change. It can be from chemical distress or homonal changes. Hair just like our skin will become less glowing and hair turning gray. So how can we slow down aging, or can we stop it? I wish we can, but we could only slow it down.

The process of slowing the aging starts in the salon, continuing care at home and coming back to  the salon for regular trims can slow down aging and keep hair healthier looking.

I been doing hair for years ;) I believe in using the new cover fusion low ammonia 100% color cream which contains argan oil to neutralize free radicals and cationic polymers, in addition to rice protein to revitalize the hair.

Then continue care at home with shampoos and conditioners to renew texture, replenish moisture, shine and help defend against free radicals.

I recommend:

  • Pureology masque: features an Antifade and Anti-age complex, which restores and maintains hair's youthful condition.
  • Rejuvatherapie conditoner by Biolage: moisturizes and hair softens hair with soothing emollients for youthful-looking shine, silkiness and bounce.
  • Eugene Perma Paris: shampoo is an antiaging formula that strenghtens the hair fiber.
I also recommned weekly facials, eating healthy and exercising. Taking care of our body from the inside out really slows the aging process. LIVE A STRESS FREE LIFE.

Thank you for reading

The Benefits of Beauty Gel Masks

Hi everyone! Before I get started on my writting I want to remind you that this blog is especially designed for men and women. Please share and let everyone know. Beauty and the pride in taking care of your skin is not for ladies only.... Some males are into it too and why not. You only have one face why not take care of it.
This post is about my love for Gel Beauty Masks. You can find almost everywhere. You can use it cold or hot. As you keep reading you will know all the good benefits of this beautyful beauty product. I have been using this for years and I recommend to everyone. My personal reason for loving and using this is that it diminish the appearance of fine lines and puffiness, while revitalizing skin in the eye area with this liquid gel mask, perfect for hot or cold temperature usage. It does work for me plus it relaxes when I use either cold or hot.
It also does;
• Significantly improves puffiness, dark circles and devitalized skin

• Relaxes fine lines and improves tone

• Helps firm and improve sagging skin

• Use simultaneously with Eye Rescue Formula for improved results

Here are the two temperatures and how to use it;

Use cold for puffiness, fine lines and sagging skin:
For cold treatment, place in freezer for at least 20 minutes. Remove mask from freezer and lay moist cloth across eye area to help maintain temperature and hydrate skin. Place mask over cloth and keep in place for 15-20 minutes.
Use warm for dark circles:
For warm treatment, soak mask for 5 minutes in warm water that is comfortable to the touch. Place moist cloth across eye area to help maintain temperature and hydrate skin. Place mask over cloth and keep in place for 15-20 minutes.
 It is simple to use and it does work. I love it and here are some pics of different ones available. I hope you enjoyed this quick post. Please leave a comment and visit soon. Don't forget to follow me.
