Why Washing Your Face Before Bed Is A Must
Hello Ladies! Whether you're into beauty or not, keep reading because this card is for you. Do you wash your face before you go to sleep? It's okay, be honest. It took me twenty four long years to realize how beneficial washing you face before bed really was -- especially being an avid makeup wearer. I can't urge you enough to start if you don't already do so. Washing my face before bed and in the morning has become a daily habit. I can't go on with my day or lay my head down at night without taking the necessary steps to do so. If you would've reminded me to wash my face before bed one year ago I would've easily taken a makeup wipe to my face and called it a night. I later learned that removing your makeup does not fall under the category of face washing. Mind you, I don't wash my face the typical way [with soap and water], instead I oil cleanse. As I mentioned in a previous card, that entails leaving an oil [I choose coconut oil] on your face for about five minutes and rinsing it off with water. I have never had the best skin [probably because I refused to wash my face growing up], but I can definitely see a difference since I started to incorporate the oil cleansing method. I thought it would be a great idea if we all shared our night time or morning face washing routines, that way we could learn tips and tricks that might just benefit us as well. Of course, I'll be the first to list the steps I take to ensure my face is clean and nourished before I go to bed at night. Hopefully you take some tips with you from this card and don't be shy, be sure to leave your nightly routine in comments below. You never know who might want to shake their laziness and start washing their face consistently. Not only will they thank you, but your face will thank you as well. Night Time Skin Routine: Step One: Take a dime size portion of coconut oil and apply to face [do face mask once a week] Step Two: Let sit for about five minutes or so Step Three: Rinse with warm water and follow up with cool water to ensure pores are closed Step Four: Tone face with witch hazel Step Five: Spot treat pimples with calamine lotion, tea tree oil or dettol What is your night time face routine? Leave comments below and let's make washing faces a positive trend. @alywoah @TessStevens @nicolejb @TerrecaRiley @AlloBaber @marshalledgar @ButterflyBlu @LAVONYORK @LizArnone @Shannonl5

It will thaw overnight, and when you wake up refreshed from your beauty sleep, you'll have a delicious, fresh, healthy breakfast all ready to go!!

Summer Skin Love
People always ask me how I get such clear smooth skin. Since so many people have been reaching out to me I decided to educate myself about skin care. Below are some facial, body, and foot scrubs I make for my clients. For a clear smooth complexion I use my homemade facial scrubs. My super favorite is my Cleopatra Sugar Scrub. I have super sensitive skin so I like to use only all natural products. I read somewhere that Cleopatra used honey to keep her youthful glow, so I said why not try it out! Ingredients: Raw Fine Sugar Cane, Raw Honey Shea Butter, Olive Oil, and avacado oil. Benefits of Cleopatra Ingredients Sugar is the best for facial exfoliation, because it is gentle on the face. I recommend to never use salt scrubs on the face. Salt is more abrasive and should be used below the face as needed. Salt Scrubs are great for foot scrubs and body scrubs. Speaking of body scrubs for soft skin and feet I use my coffee scrub Java Explosion body scrub and fir my feet I use my Grapefruit Burst foot scrub. Java Explosion consists of coffee grounds, honey, cinnamon, Mediterranean Sea Salt, Shea Butter, and Olive Oil. The Grapefruit Burst contains Pink Himalayan Sea Salt, apricot oil, organic coconut oil, and essential oil (grapefruit scent). Benefits of above ingredients This is a just quick chart to compare and contrast different oils. Remember the secret to a great scrub is the foundation. This is oil you use and the type of ingredient you use for exfoliation.
