Let's talk body scrubs. There are so many different kinds out there and which you choose is up to your personal preference. But one thing all scrubs have in common is the best way to use them. So here's how you do it: when using a body scrub, be sure to use firm, yet gentle pressure and rub in a circular motion. Always start with your limbs (legs, arms) and work your way toward your heart, which helps with circulation (and if you've been to a spa you'll know this is how they're trained to do it too). One last thing - follow up with moisturizer, body oil, body butter, or body balm on that new, beautifully soft skin.
This tip is about PETAL but would work just as well for another naturally-derived color lip balm. Petal is my universally flattering and buildable lip hue, made only form ingredients found in nature - in fact, the color comes from roots and flower petals. But Petal can also be used ads a subtle color for your cheeks. All you need to do is take a small amount and dot and blend quickly onto your cheeks. Add a little more for a little more color. It's an instant way to get a rosy glow (and I do mean glow) when you're on the go!
Today's nugget is about PURIFYING MASK, but can just as easily apply to any other preservative-free dry mask that is reconstituted with liquid. If you've accidentally poured too much water and find your mask a little too runny for your liking (which happens to all of us), just let your mask sit undisturbed in the bowl for a few minutes. The clay will absorb some of the liquid and your mask will thicken up to a consistency more to your liking. If I'm not careful I will sometimes have to wait 10-15 minutes (sometimes even longer) but rather than adding more Purifying Mask, which would be more than I needed and wasteful, I wait it out.
I'm so excited to announce the newest addition to the Oleema Skincare line - TEA + C (toner | elixir | astringent with vitamin C). This multi-functional powerhouse is a Toner, and Elixer, and an Astringent all in one, with a big dose of vitamin C (close to 20%). Each natural ingredient was carefully sourced and chosen for its efficacy and potency. TEA + C works beautifully on cleansed skin, preparing it for the next step in your routine - your moisturizer (or Nectar). The beauty of this special product is the simplicity it offers to your skincare routine. Because it contains nearly 20% vitamin C, there is no longer a need for an additional vitamin C serum. Simply cleanse, tone, hydrate, and get a huge...
