Strawberry DIY Facial

Super Cleanser For Oily Skin

Did you know strawberries are

Top 5 tips for oily skin:

  • Cleanse in the morning and night only; more cleansing creates more stimulation to oil glands.
  • Stop eating fast-food! Fast-food is full of oils, which comes out through your pores.
  • Lavender oil helps soothe red acne, breakouts, and calm your nerves.
  • Be sure all products used are oil free.
  • With a kleenex gently blot away excess face shininess.

Strawberries Fields

Here you go! According to WebMd — The tiny strawberry is packed with vitamin C, fiber, antioxidants, and more. The heart-shaped silhouette of the strawberry is the first clue that this fruit is good for you. These potent little packages protect your heart, increase HDL (good) cholesterol, lower your blood pressure, and guard against cancer.

Packed with vitamins, fiber, and particularly high levels of antioxidants known as polyphenols, strawberries are a sodium-free, fat-free, cholesterol-free, low-calorie food. They are among the top 20 fruits in antioxidant capacity and are a good source of manganese and potassium. Just one serving — about eight strawberries — provides more vitamin C than an orange.

This member of the rose family isn’t really a fruit or a berry but the enlarged receptacle of the flower. Choose medium-sized berries that are firm, plump, and deep red; once picked, they don’t ripen further. First cultivated in ancient Rome, strawberries are now the most popular berry fruit in the world. In provincial France, they were regarded as an aphrodisiac. These red gems may be good for your heart in more ways than one.

DIY Strawberry Mask

Mix or blend together the following ingredients for a delicious strawberry mask!

  • 1 cup of fresh strawberries;
  • 1 tsp of lemon juice;
  • 2 part egg whites;
  • 2 tsp honey.

Put on some relaxing music, put your feet up, and chillax for 10 – 15 minutes. Wash the mask off, your skin should feel refreshed and energized!

Fillers

Beauty  ….

What is beauty? Allure, physical attractiveness, good looks, grace, or style? You tell me, enlighten me with your definition of such term. Beauty is perceived differently by all of us, making it easy for us to like different types of people. Every age has its own beauty, we need to embrace and cherish our inner and outer elegance, unfortunately we don’t. We are our own worse critic, we pick, hide, and complain about imperfections, very much unknown to the outside world; in front of the mirror we pull, tuck, and stretch our skin, hoping it will appear tighter, smoother, and perhaps plumper. Society has made coming of aging unacceptable, we look for quick fixes, from facials, peels, and fillers, we are thriving for perfection, which doesn’t exist.

Fillers

Q: Do fillers really remove years?

A: Yes, but the results are temporary.

1. Which are the most common areas fillers are used on?

  • Chin Creases
  • Uneven Brows
  • Dropping corners of the mouth
  • Muscle bands of the neck
  • Crow’s feet (outside eye-corners)
  • Marionette lines
  • Horizontal forehead lines
  • Lines on the bridge of the nose
  • Deep expression lines

2. Possible side effects?

Always check with your doctor prior any procedure, safety and well-being are more important than beauty.

The crow’s-feet area is a bit pesky, the skin is thinner and the muscle causing the wrinkles is quiet strong, which may cause the treatment to go wrong, by pushing the solution in different parts of the face resulting in deeper wrinkles and a possibility of uneven skin around the injected area.

3. What kind of fillers are available?

There are more than 70 different types of fillers on the market, consult with your doctor by asking questions in ensuring the best choice for you.

The most common fillers are :

  • Botox
  • Juvederm
  • Hylaform
  • Captique
  • Radiesse
  • Restylene
  • Collagen
  • Fat Fascia Dermis (your own fat, which is the best option and less expensive)
  • Liquid Silicone
  • Poly-L-Acid known as Sculptra (currently only available for HIV – patients)

Beauty is beauty, but if a treatment or two makes a person feel better about themselves, I say go for it, why not? Keep it in moderation, be healthy and happy!
