You Shouldn’t Buy This Unless…

Really, stop reading! You don’t want the perfect complexion, do you? Lol, just kidding, please carry on.

I came across this Skincare line a while back, but dismissed it due to our saturated market of “Try this! You’ll preserve your youth forever!” or “Magic scar eraser in a tube, or your money back guaranteed”, my fellow advertisers, seriously? Can’t you come up with better ads? I would like to thank  Megan Nolan, a good friend of mine and beauty stylist /skincare specialist consultant for Nordstrom at “The Oaks”, handed me simply designed catalog with the ARCONA brand printed across it. My first reaction was… No Thank you, but then, I decided to give it a try.

What happened next? I became a believer!!!! A-M-A-Z-I-N-G results! I’m in awwwwww! My skin feels ridiculously smooth, beautiful, clear, and supple! I’m a happy camper and will continue this regiment 🙂

Here’s why, “ARCONA is known and respected for its high quality, luxury formulations and their unparalleled ability to make a positive change to the skin. The key to ARCONA’s effectiveness is its active ingredients and the way they are combined and processed. Cosmeceutical-grade ingredients, such as enzymes, antioxidants and amino acids, are formulated to work synergistically to deliver powerful results. These active ingredients are cold-processed at very low temperatures, in small batches, to keep them active and effective. Because cold processing is labor and time intensive, most skin care products, even the expensive ones that may begin with quality ingredients, are heat processed, which ultimately leaves nutrients lifeless and ineffective.”

I encourage you to try it on your own! Go see Megan Nolan, she works with Nordstrom at “The Oaks” Mall, located in Thousand Oaks, California. Tell her Anna from A Blissful Skin sent you, and she will turn you into a believer too!

2014 Happy New Year!

 

Do You Know Organic?

Organic is Vibrant well-being

Fruits and vegetables are imperative for our well-being, before antibiotics, our ancestors relied upon Mother Nature for effective and safe remedies. Healthy skin is achieved from within, I would like to share a few recipe treatments using of my favorite  healing foods.

Organic Seeds

Pineapple

  • Reduces inflammation
  • Speeds up tissue repair
  • Protects bones
  • Energizing
  • Immunity booster

Pineapple is rich in vitamin C, manganese, and bromelain. If your skin is dry, soak it in warm water for 10 minutes, cut a piece of pineapple peel and place it flesh-side down on the area, (miracle worker for dry heels), you may secure it with ace bandages, leave over night. When removing the dressing, gently peel it back, soak the area in warm water for 5 minutes, and dry. You may repeat this up to 3 nights, resulting in amazingly soft skin!

Pumpkin Seeds

  • Promotes prostate health
  • Fights fatigue
  • Aids memory
  • Helps skin complexion

What a great snack! Pumpkin seeds are high in zinc, iron, protein, omega-3 fatty acids, and B-complex vitamins. Excellent snack, easy to carry around and super healthy!

Slippery Elm

  • Soothes digestive tract
  • Eases colic
  • Emollient
  • Soothes sore throat
  • Calms irritated skin

Slippery elm is a soothing herb, used internally may help prevent digestive problems, crohn’s disease, and colitis. Used topically, slippery elm soothes wounds, burns, itchy and irritated skin. Cleanse the skin, then apply this soothing magical herb to the area and leave for 5 minutes, repeat as needed.

Milk

  • First-class protein
  • Strengthens bones
  • Rich in calcium

Milk does the body and skin good! Full of calcium, vitamin-B, iron and zinc, some studies have shown it may be good for the brain, nourishes the skin, reduces liver’s production of cholesterol and lowers blood pressure. How about a milk & honey bath lotion? Simply add half a cup of milk, 2 eggs, 3 tbls oil, 2 tsp honey, 2 tsp organic shampoo and 1 tbsp vodka in a bowl, mix together and pour in a glass bottle. You may add 3-4 tablespoons to bath water. (Keep the home-made lotion in the fridge, and use within 3-5 days)

Tea Tree

  • Antifungal
  • Antiseptic
  • Treats skin infections
  • Used for oral infections

Tea tree is an effective remedy for a brad range of ailments, especially fungal and skin problems like acne, insect bites, athlete’s foot, yeast infections, ringworm, sore throats, may help combat gum disease, and useful for colds. Tea tree skin wash is amazing, make your own! 1 tsp dried or 2 tsp fresh tea tree leaves and 1 cup of freshly boiled water. Steep the herbs in water for 10 minutes, then strain. Leave it to cool, then bathe the skin of affected area, repeat as needed.

Do you have any treatments you would like to share with all of us? Please do so below!

Do You Know The 3 Benefits of Coffee?

Coffee with Benefits?

Hi there! It’s been a few weeks since my last post, my apologies to all of you, I’ll be sure to update this site more often.

A BIG “Thank You” to each one of you! Your feedback has been overwhelming, either by commenting, visiting, or referring friends and family to this site, without you my readers, A Blissful Skin would not exist =) I appreciate all of you sooooo much!!!!

Let’s get back on topic here! Coffee, yes, good old coffee! I can’t live without it, I must have my morning cup, and my favorite one is Starbucks of course! Budgeting is my daily routine, a trip to my local Starbucks is not part of it, so how do I manage? Simple, I buy the pre-measured packets, my favorite flavor? Mocha of course! =)

With a busy work, travel, and family schedule, making a trip to my local grocery stores is a nuisance …. I love online shopping, this is why I write blogs about products I use and believe in, making them accessible for you and me! Please remember to CLICK on the product images for ordering details.

Now that I’ve shared my favorite coffee with you, let’s carry on to the health, skin, and cardiovascular benefits of this amazing, natural source!

Starbucks $6.95

1. Mood Therapy

Are you feeling down? Depressed? Need a Uplifting Mood alternative? Have a cup of coffee! Studies across the globe show that coffee contains a compound called trigonelline which promotes neurite outgrowth in neurons, meaning this is a very beneficial compound which helps and rescues damaged neuronal networks, giving coffee the power to positively improve brain health, by uplifting your mood! Let’s brew a delicious cup now!

Starbucks Classic Pour-Over Brewer $9.95

2. Blood Circulation

Coffee bean facials and body scrubs??? What and why? The answer is simple, coffee beans exfoliate the skin by increasing circulation to the  cardiovascular system, and it doesn’t stop there, caffeine also  firms and reduces the appearance of cellulite! If you ask me, it’s a win-win for anti-aging and body treatments! Let’s make it a coffee-spa-day!

Bliss ‘thigh-namic’ duo $51.00
SKU :BLISS-SET101

3. At Home Skin Treatment

We all need some skin texture enhancement tips, well, coffee is another remedy with long-lasting results. Products containing caffeine may also have an effect on wrinkles because it constricts the blood vessels, you may  begin to notice a reduction of fine lines and wrinkles and a tauter overall appearance, why not make your very own mask? See below and enjoy! =)

Home-Mask / Body-Scrub:

    • 5 Tbsp. finely ground espresso or coffee beans
    • 5 Tbsp. unsweetened cocoa powder
    • 9 Tbsp. plain yogurt, soy almond milk. Use less dairy if you like a thicker paste. Substitutions are allowed: Try an egg instead of dairy if you are an egg mask lover, or substitute oils, such as olive oil, extra virgin coconut oil or almond oil if you have dehydrated skin. If you choose oils, using oils, half the amount or it will be too runny.
    • 3 Tbsp. honey (for dry-dehydrated skin), or lemon juice (for combination, oily, and problematic skin)
    • Apply the freshly made product to your clean face and neck, (you may apply it all of the body as well, just double the dosage)
    • Leave on for 10 – 15 minutes
    • Wet a small towel and gently apply  to your face in order to soften and loosen the mask, then rinse with warm water.
    • Additional uncontaminated product can be covered and stored in the refrigerator for several days.
