Beauty Tip Of The Week

Beauty Tip Of The Week

If you are experiencing 'Cystic acne' please make sure that you are cleansing your face no more than twice a day. Over cleansing may aggravate the acne.

Here are a few preventive measures that you can take in preventing cystic acne:

1) Cleanse your skin properly with the proper products
2) Reduce your stress levels
3) Be careful of any food sensitivities
4) Make sure you understand any prescription drugs that you are taking

One of my actresses on 'Drop Dead Diva' is experiencing 'Cystic Acne', so I thought I would share this tip with you all.

Be Beautiful & Blessed!!

Beauty Tip Of the Week

Beauty Tip Of The Week

Don't get stuck using the same foundations year after year. If you love what you are using, great. Keep using it. But, it's always good to change the type (liquid, cream, etc) of foundation that you are using based on your skin and the seasons. During the Spring/Summer, you may need something thats lighter in texture (liquid). During the Fall/Winter, your skin may need a little extra moisture. In this case, a cream would work. The most important thing to remember is, keep trying until you discover what works best for you.

Be Beautiful & Blessed!!

A New Favorite: Kaia Bamboo Facial Cloths

For those of us with sensitive skin, there is new facial cleansing cloth in town. Introducing the Bamboo Facial Cleansing Cloths from Kaia Naturals. Made out of 100% natural bamboo, these unbleached clothes can be used as an eye makeup remover, a toner, and a facial cleanser. The clothes are packed with some wonderful ingredients to include a blend of pure citrus oils, thats where the lovely fragrance comes from, Canadian honey, and sunflower seed oil. When I first tried them, I was attracted to the fragrance. Thats always the first step for me, if it doesn't smell nice, I am hesitant to try it. It has such a refreshing fragrance, very light, but nice. The cloths are very gentle on the skin which is also important to me, because if it doen't feel right, thats not going to work either. I"ve tried several makeup wipes on my clients, but now I have a new favorite which I will be using on my clients as well as myself. The bamboo facial cleansing cloths retail for $17.99 and there are 30 per pack. Check out for more information.

True Shimmer

I was a little curoius when I received the new Chapstick lip balms in the mail. I thought, "Wow", Chapstick is doing something different. They did something different alright. They added shimmer to the balms as well as different flavors. I tried all of the ones that I received. I didn't like the shimmer in the lip balm because it is very noticeable. It's not at all subtle the way the label stated. It also left my lips looking 'white'. Didn't like that at all!! For more reviews on this product, log on to

H.I.P. - 'High Intensity Pigment'

High Intensity Pigment was what I was expecting when I applied the color presso lip gloss, but instead I got thick, sticky gloss all over my lips. The texture of the gloss was too thick for me. It was not as bad as some lines, but I'm used to nice moisture in a gloss and not something thats going to make my hair stick to my lips. I loved the color. It was #182, Trendy. I can't really say much more about this one because it didn't really impress me. For more reviews on L'Oreal HIP, visit
