Your 2010 New Year New You Beauty Guide

In just a few more hours and 2009 will be behind us.  While 2009 may have been a horrible year for some, 2010 does not have to be so.  Learn from your beauty faux pas (social boo boos!) and work toward becoming a better you.

Pur Minerals Product Review and Recommendation

Hi Ladies-

As we enter the new year, I want to introduce you to a couple of products that I have been using that I think would be a good addition to your beauty arsenal.

Before I share my review of Pur Mineral's products, I want my new followers and subscribers to know that I don't promote too many competitor products because Blended Naturals is my baby and I have much success with this line for my own skin. However, I believe that you can have a number of beauty products in your diva care.  Whenever I come across a product that is good and I believe can help you with securing fresh radiant skin (or at least looking like it), I share it with you.  Now on to Pur.

Blended Naturals Press Release

2009 is almost over.  I'm almost sad to see it go but also look forward to such much in 2010.

Blended Naturals will be aggressively marketed at craft fairs, trade shows and other events throughout NY, NJ, CT and PA.  Women of color need to know about this new product line that helps to:
  • Hydrate dry skin
  • Smooth uneven skin tone
  • Provide pampering
  • Improve skin's elasticity to prevent premature wrinkles
  • Reduce germs that cause acne

How Shea Butter Benefits Dry Skin & Promotes Radiance

Considering that we are smack dab at the onset of winter, it's highly appropriate to keep presenting to you the types of products that will benefit your skin, especially if you typically have problems with dry skin.  Since I tend to have dry skin myself, I've come to realize that being super proactive with moisturizing and pampering during these harsh temperatures is essential.  Well, that is if you want to keep your skin from looking like a road map to no where.

Boost Your Dry Skin Care

Assuming you are using the right products for your dry skin needs, your skin care product should be pretty effective.  But what if you want to boost that product's effectiveness?  Chances are your dry skin product is a basic moisturizer...first ingredient water, second ingredient an oil like olive or hemp oil (no mineral oil or petroleum).  This is what makes a moisturizer truly effective (and no alcohol please).

Dry Skin Tips

Is dry skin causing you to feel itchy or uncomfortable?  If so, I feel you.  I tend to be predisposed to dry skin on my back and legs.

Let me share some dry skin tips with you that are very helpful, especially during these winter months:
  • Don't use lotion if your skin is super dry. Stock up on creams or shea butter. They are much more effective
  • Moisturize right out of the shower while skin is damp but not wet.  This will seal in your moisture
  • Use handmade natural soap.  It doesn't contain the dreaded, drying sodium laurel sulfate
  • When bathing add a few drops of an essential water to your bath water.  Try Jasmine or Cedarwood.  Coconut and Almond oil are also effective.
  • Avoid hot showers which strips your skin of it's natural oils.  
  • Avoid products with alcohol in them. Natural is best whenever possible
Finally, the best way to combat dry skin is to be diligent!  Moisturize more frequently and increase your intake of Omega oils so you can deal with the problem of dry skin from the inside out.

Recommended Dry Skin Product:

Organic Shea Butter Balm - This product is extremely moisturizing and a #1 friend to those with dry cracked skin conditions. Shea Butter balm softens rough skin patches and even helps prevent wrinkles.  Shea Butter also reduces appearance of scars and stretch marks.

Product is handcrafted, long lasting and retails for only $16

Winter Skin Care Importance

Winter time in the East is finally here.  For some it's the favorite season of the year.  Regardless to if you love winter or hate it (like me), there are some things you need to be aware of to nourish and protect your skin from the harsh temperatures.

Do you have normal, oily, sensitive or dry skin?  Guess what? It doesn't matter.  You must still remember to adequately care for your skin during the winter season. You just have to be especially diligent if your skin tends to be dry.

So, why is it that your winter skin care routine should be any different from your summer or fall routines?

For one, you will more than likely spend more time indoors where temperatures are elevated to counteract the effects of the outdoor cold.  This can have a de-nourishing and dehydrating effect on the skin.  Secondly, when going outdoors your skin needs to be protected from the elements.

Blended Naturals Moisturizing Sugar Butter Scrub is a helpful and effective product to have on hand during the winter months as it contains Organic essential oils like Sunflower oil which is rich in fatty acids that help your skin retain moisture.  It also contains Organic Cocoa Butter, Shea Butter and Coconut Oil which balances skin moisture, softens chapped skin and dry patches while leaving your skin smooth and exfoliated.  This 2-in-1 exfoliating/moisturizing product is available in the following essential oil scents: Exotic Almond, Pink Grapefruit, Vanilla Black Velvet, Orange, Lemon, Rosemary Mint and Refreshing Peppermint.

In a few days I will share with you, an extensive list of "Winter Skin Care Tips" to help you make it through this season with soft, hydrated, smooth, fresh and radiant skin!  Stay tuned
