Find Out How To Exfoliate Right!

Top Benefits of Exfoliant Products

Beauty and exfoliating

Aestheticians are key professionals in the Skincare industry; their vast experience, combined with ongoing education, will provide patients like you and I, the best and most effective products the market has to offer in order to achieve a radiant, beautiful complexion. According to Dermascope – “In our struggling economy, we all work hard to make the best choices when choosing which products to use so as to maximize results while minimizing costs in the treatment room. We also have to carefully consider these factors when recommending to our clientele what they should use for their home care regimen to complement the treatments we provide.”

Why exfoliate? 

Is your complexion a target to minor breakouts? Well, using a good exfoliant product will balance your skin ph levels by controlling sebum production while treating and normalizing clogged skin with blackheads, white-heads, and minor acne breakouts.

Does your skin feel tight? Dehydrated? Do you have dry, scaly patches? By exfoliating, you will remove dead cells buildup, and your complexion will regain the radiant, glowing, and refreshed look again!

Exfoliants may restore radiance and a youthful appearance to the skin. Exfoliants containing natural marine extract will remove dead skin cells and impurities.

Your Top 3 Conversion Rules

image

Know your prospects by capturing interests, and convert more leads!

Business is business, in today’s digital world e-commerce B2B (business to business), is a perfect way to work remotely from anywhere, making blogging a big Vavavooom for many of us.

How do you create a loyal following? Why should your readers choose/click you instead of the next link? Of course you’re awesome, you know your stuff, and your greatness is unparalleled, but how do you capture consumers interests?

Today, I want to share a few tips with you, relating to all businesses across the World Wide Web, so sit tight, pay attention, and implement what you feel works best for you and your niche.

Please comment and share your thoughts, I’m here to learn as well 🙂

1. Do you know your purpose?

When visitors enter your site “Dadaaaa”! Is your purpose clear? How do your pages render? You must be crystal clear to what services you’re offering and how they benefit your prospect’s needs.

Make sure your website is easy to read, navigate, and links work properly, it takes 7 seconds to lose your prospect, which means they most likely never return, and if they do, you’re lucky but their brain is already wired to click away or the back button.

2. BOLD your benefits.

Your visitors use your website to facilitate or solve a situation or problem they may be facing, so be as clear as possible and persuade them to remain on your page, because your services are exactly what they’re looking for!! Look no further Mr. Or Ms. Prospect!

You must convince your readers that you’re in fact the guru of your niche, why? Because you are!!! Use bold lettering to make important facts stand out. Remember, capturing their interests is what will convert your leads.

3. Be real, be simple, be you!

Be yourself, like-minded people attract one another, so don’t pretend and don’t fib, be your own self, engage with your followers and use humor. Laughter is the best medicine, you never know what people are facing, so be their light, be positive, and kind, mostly be yourself.

I find that browsing and searching comes easy to me, (years of practice), but not everyone has the time nor the patience, so be sensitive to your readers, they may have been searching for hours looking for answers, keep your paragraphs short, to the point, and factual.

Luscious Skin Secrets

Having beautiful, soft skin isn’t always easy due to external factors which may potentially be dehydrating or/and harmful to the body’s largest organ. So, how do you keep your skin supple, healthy with a glowing look? Who else wants the ultimate secret to a smoother, more luscious, and dazzling skin? How can we protect this vital organ from pollution, climate changes, medication, and allergies? Why should we compromise our natural skin by depriving it from nourishment, hydration, and pliability?  Why not achieve a blissful glow by increasing our fluid intake, adding vitamin supplements, and using restorative products?

My mom is by far one of the most beautiful women I have ever met, she looks 30 years younger than her age; she’s well-educated, strong, and intelligent … I’m not saying this because she’s my mother, but because it’s the honest truth. She’s thought me the importance of skin care maintenance by protecting and nourishing it in every possible way, making it an imperative factor in slowing down the aging process. Growing up I didn’t pay much attention to it, however, the daily tips, comments, and continuous advice stuck with me, and today I follow them. My favorite is Vaseline Coco-Butter Vitalizing Gel Body Oil, this is a cheap product and goes a long way by leaving my skin with amazing results. I invite all of my readers and followers to give it a try to share all feedback and advice with me, I want to learn what your thoughts are.

Quick Overview

The way I use this magnificent product is in the shower, … yup, you read it right, in the shower. Right after taking a shower and before drying myself off with a towel, I will generously apply the gel body oil all over my body. This awesome product leaves the skin healthy and hydrated, light reflects off the rich color below the surface, giving it an amazing natural glow and supple feel/look. Enriched with natural minerals is also great for dry/brittle hair, or used for massage lotion as well.

Healthy Skin Secrets

Home-Spa Treatments

Healthy skin care begins at home, if your skin looks terrific, you’ll feel beautiful all over. Home-Spa treatments are on the rise, many prefer the intimacy  and comfort of their own home instead of busy spa, for a personalized and efficient treatment.

Let’s improve our skin by bettering our habits

  1. Time is often the cause of neglected and blemished skin.
  2. Frowning, poor diet, and lack of sunscreen, (just to name a few), age and damage the skin.
  3. Lack of water dehydrates the skin by making it look dull and dry; not to mention, damaging our organs and well-being. Drink your 8 glasses daily to moisturize from inside out!

Natural Healing

Fighting germs organically?

Nature offers many antiseptics, we can benefit from them and heal common health problems with a little help . Every household should have tea tree oil and grapefruit seed extract handy, they are the most powerful natural disinfectants on earth.

Tea tree oil and grapefruit seed extract

Tea tree was discovered in Australia, there are tea trees in other parts of the world, but Australian trees are more concentrated in oils. Tea tree is considered very safe, like anything else, please use caution when using this product, never use full strength oil on infants, children or pets, always dilute it first, if eye contact occurs, rinse throughly with cold water, if accidental ingestion , do not induce vomiting, drink large amounts of water, and, if available, take activated charcoal tablets to absorb the oil within the stomach.

The seeds in grapefruit kill germs on contact, new to the health industry, holistic practitioners are beginning to use it as natural antibiotic and immune system booster, it may be used topically and/or internally. Again, use caution while using products containing grapefruit seed extract, long-term use may disrupt intestinal balance, try limiting intake to 4-6 weeks, please consult with your local holistic physician for optimal results.

  • Are your muscles aching? Do the feel tired? Massage oils containing tea tree soothe and heal the body, and reenergize you, try it next time.
  • Morning breath? Cleanse your mouth with tea tree or grapefruit seed extract, dilute a few drops of oil in 6 ounces of water, then rinse! This works great in treating gingivitis as well.
  • Tea tree oil and grapefruit seed extract kill fungi on contact; nail fungus, athlete’s foot and jock itch can be treated with them by soaking affected area in water with either one of the antiseptics, then make sure the skin surface is dried well, wear socks, or clean underwear.
  • Household surfaces, in a spray bottle dilute solution of tea tree oil or grapefruit seed extract, and spray the germs away! Safe to use on doors, telephones, counters, bathrooms, shower curtains, moldy walls, trash cans, humidifier, spray into air ducts and filters, and the air (instead of lysol).
  • Chronic ear infections are the leading cause of antibiotics prescription in children, and myringonotomy (small incision of eardrum where excess fluid is drained, with insertion of tympanostomy tube, to keep the middle ear aerated for a prolonged period of time). Tea tree oil and grapefruit seed extract are proven ear infection warriors, by placing a few drops in each ear a few times a day, it will clear infection and heal the eardrum, however if you’re not comfortable diluting and preparing the drops for the child (completely understandable, considering you may be tired and lack time) check out this site, you can buy the drops already made www.imhotepinc.com/product1.html
  • Acne can be helped, simply add a few drops of tea tree oil or grapefruit seed extract to shampoos, conditioners and face wash, for spot treatment apply full strength tea tree oil to blemishes 2 times a day, leave to dry.

100% Pure Tea Tree Essential Oil 1/2oz. Botanical name: Melaleuca alternifolia. Extraction process: Steam distillation. Country of Origin: Australia. Tea tree has a long history of traditional use.
