  •      Soak your feet in warm soapy water with Earth Therapeutics Tea Tree Oil foot soak containing minerals to heal foot problems and callouses and mint to rejuvenate while you begin to soften feet. Relax while your feet soak for 10-15 minutes or until water begins to cool down.
  •      Clean toenails using a nail brush by gently washing all around the toes and nail areas and a cuticle stick to clean under and around each nail, carefully!
  •      Gently dry feet and use a callous remover/shaver to get rid of those dry areas. We love the Denco Easy Grip Professional Foot Smoother for an easy footcare tool anyone can use that is superior and much cheaper than other shavers/callous removers and with a lifetime warranty! It contours to your foot and removes dry, flaking and hardened areas of the feet that happen so often to many men and women.

     How much do you pay attention to magazine ads, cover girl photos and models that look absolutely perfect - perfect skin with great texture, smooth, soft, radiant without a single wrinkle or blemish - perfect figures without an ounce of fat, perfect teeth all aligned perfectly and sparkling, perfect clothes that fit to a tee. Really? Even models that make their living looking great have flaws.

Lip Care Beauty Tips

Lip Care as part of your Summer Beauty routine

Lip Care Beauty Tips

     Summer beauty usually means we have to take a look at our winter skin all over our bodies and do what it takes to have smooth, soft, touchable skin and beautiful full pouty lips. The summer sun can damage your lips as easily as it burns the skin and your hair. Take time to pay special attention to your lips in the summer and you'll like the results! Our lips have very delicate, thin and sensitive skin that protect our mouth and teeth. Lips need special care to make them look their most radiant. If your lips are chapped, red, dry and cracked or have sores that are painful you tend to look older and may not feel your best when you don't look your best. So, part of having smooth, soft and kissable lips is to hydrate and moisturize them with vitamins that heal and protect.

     Follow these tips for your lip care routine and within a short amount of time, you'll be the summer beauty you hope to be.

How much tan is too much tan?

You've probably seen the woman now called 'tanorexia' after she reportedly took her young daughter to a tanning bed while she herself is so tan - actually baked/fried/roasted that it doesn't look good and it sure doesn't look healthy.

Now, the latest: H&M apologizes for featuring bronzed model
after the Swedish Cancer Society becomes angered with and scolds the clothing retailer, H&M, for their display of Isabeli Fontana on a beach wearing a brightly colored bathing suit and so tan that she almost looks African American if you didn't know who she was. Wonder why they wouldn't just use a beautiful black model instead of getting this model so dark that she doesn't even look like herself. No doubt, lots of spray tanning, possibly tanning booths, lotions, potions and even the sun could account for this tan - the story doesn't say, just our opinion. H&M apologized and wants everyone to know they aren't condoning sunning or getting this dark but, it will help their sales no doubt. Keep reading for more about tanning.

Let's talk about tanning a bit and how much tan is too much tan.
     The sun's rays are very powerful and you increase your risk of cancer every time you burn your skin. It may not show up as cancer for years and many people that tanned as teenagers and young adults get skin cancers many years later. Just because you don't get it right away doesn't mean you're safe from getting cancer!
     The lighter or fairer your skin is, the more dangerous the sun is since you have little melanin to protect your skin from the rays. Everyone can potentially get skin cancers, no one is immune no matter how dark your skin is to begin with!
     The more we learn about how dangerous tanning is, isn't it our very own responsibility to learn about it and take heed? Yes, of course it is but, the Swedish Cancer Society has a point when they state that young people will see this as 'the look' to obtain and we'll see more and more younger men and women on the beaches, at the parks, in their yards or wherever laying in the sun without proper protection aiming for this super dark bronze tan.
     Tanning beds are getting in danger of being shut down if some groups have their way as a means to protect the public from the cancer potential.
     Would you stop tanning with tanning beds or dangerous sprays and chemicals if you knew it was bad for you? We'd love your comments below. Some people just don't believe it's dangerous or that cancer will ever happen to them.
     See our article on self tanner tips and follow it and don't go for the look that H&M is showing in this advertisement.

Getting a tan - a safer alternative
     Use a self tanning lotion! It's simple really. Tanning lotions have built in color that when added as a lotion to your skin build up the level and layers of color. Not all products are alike and you get what you pay for. Healthy ingredients cost more just like when you go to the supermarket and buy all fresh fruits and vegetables but, they're so much yummier and so much better for you. Want more color, add another coat and wait 10-20 minutes until it's dry. Choose a natural product with healthy ingredients or you'll just do as much damage to your skin from toxins and chemicals. Check out Caribbean Solutions Self Tanner and read all the positive reviews from other customers, we think you'll be happy with this product for giving you the look of a tan, safer than baking in the sun! Or, search for another you like better and use it if you want a darker color. The bottom line is that tanning is dangerous and it's up to each of us to take responsibility for what we do to our skin.

Be safe, have radiant skin that is healthy and you'll be happy you paid attention to how much tan is too much!

What is detoxing and how can it help skin?

Detoxing is a way to get rid of the toxins in the body that accumulate, build up and don't get out of the body fast enough. Detoxing is colon cleansing to remove toxins using safe methods that won't hurt the body or you. These toxins when built up make us feel sluggish, bloated, full, gassy, tired, reduces our energy, prevents clear thinking, and shows up as problems with our skin on top of all that!

Even if you have daily bowel movements, you still want to detox to get rid of more toxins since the intestines are one of the largest organs in the body and they do hold and store bacteria and toxins that need to go!

People that have any of the above complaints over and over again benefit from a good, healthy detox at least monthly. If you suffer from any of these ailments too, you want and need to try detox for radiant skin, mind, and really you'll just feel better overall.

When you want radiant skin and have tried all the best products and really pay attention to doing everything you can and still don't see results, you are probably ready to detox! It's the missing link.

If you think that a monthly detox is too much, don't do it that often and instead try it a couple of times a year. Many people swear by detoxing routinely to make them look and feel better.

There are many ways that you can do a detox for yourself. Find one that works for you, everyone is different and there are many tips and ideas to help you figure out what works best for you and your body.

The main point is to try it, repeat it and notice the difference in the way you sleep, feel, think and look!

Here are some of our best tips to help you detox for your skin, body, mind and overall health.

Dry Skin in Teens - This is for YOU!

When teens have dry skin.

Many times teens worry about the problem of acne and oily skin and pimples, blackheads, large pores and redness. This isn't always true and sometimes teens complain of their dry skin. This article is for YOU!

Let's talk about what causes dry skin in teens first and then some things you can do to have smoother and softer skin. Sometimes, skin can be so dry that wrinkles or lines start to form. Fix the dry skin and you'll probably have less lines too. Try these tips below and if they don't work, please see a doctor especially if you take medicine - those can cause dry skin too.

   Causes of Dry Skin in Teens:
 1. Not drinking enough water. That's a simple enough thing to fix, drink more water. Try to have at least 6 glasses of water a day. It will help your skin to start to get rid of the dryness and you'll notice softer skin. Be patient, it could take two weeks to notice a real difference.

2. Not eating enough fruit and vegetables. Sometimes, this one can be hard but, do try to find some fruit that you like and have at least one piece of fruit three times a day. Try fruit in the morning with breakfast, add it to cereal or your yogurt. Add another piece of fruit at lunch time. Berries, an orange, an apple or pear. Simple fruit that doesn't cost too much and even fruit from a can would be okay to add if that's all you have. Fruit has natural water and lots of very good vitamins that are good food for your skin. The same thing is true for vegetables. You'll notice better skin and more healthy energy from the food you eat.

3. Take warm showers or baths and not hot water. Add a few drops of essential oil to the bath water to soften and add moisture to dry skin, soak 10-15 minutes, rinse with cool water and towel dry by patting. Add body lotion to all areas of dry skin.

4. Dry skin in teens is sometimes not because of the food you eat at all. It could be from the soap you're washing your face with.
     Bar soaps usually dry your skin.
     Some face cleansers (most actually) have alcohol that dries the skin, chemicals that dry the skin and have little nutritional value.
     Face cleansers should be made with ingredients that are good for your skin, just like the food you eat.
     Are you using a moisturizer? Dry skin needs a moisturizer.
     Here are two good options we like for teen skin and both have natural healthy ingredients in them that are good for you, won't dry your skin, they're good for sensitive skin and they're easy to use:

      First is Good for You Girls for around $20 and Free Shipping! A three step system is the best. Use a cleanser, toner and moisturizer every day at least once a day at night. Twice a day is better if you can do it every morning and at night. If you can't, then at least do it every night before bed - you'll get rid of that dry skin!

    Next is Nutrimetics 'Clear Skincare' for $68 and will last 9 months or longer. From a 50 year old company that was the first to use all plants for each ingredient. These products are good enough to eat.

5. Use a sunscreen every day, especially if you are outside a lot, if you play sports outdoors. Use it as a daily lotion on your arms, legs and upper body. Wear a hat if you can too to protect your skin from the hot rays of the sun - the sun is very drying on our skin.

6. Your makeup (if you wear it) could be causing dry skin too. Look for natural makeup without chemicals.

7. Want to make your own beauty products at home? Great Green Beauty ideas here. You can read a quick peek by clicking on the corner of the book. There are oatmeal cleansers, strawberry cleaners, olive oil moisturizers, using essential oils and more, much more. We'll add a few of our own ideas here soon on making your own treatments for dry skin.

8. Repeat all of these for dry skin and let us know how long it takes for your dry skin problems to go away!

Improve your dry hair - one of the first things people see!

It's true that to have radiant skin, you may need to take a look at the health of your hair. It could be a sign of the health of the rest of your body and your skin! Products with chemicals and the tools that you are using on your hair affect your scalp, get absorbed into your blood stream and could be doing more damage to your hair.

Dry hair not only doesn't look it's best but, also makes you not feel your best!

Here's a great article to help you with that dry damaged hair. Improve your hair, get clean silky smooth hair and well hydrated hair that moves freely and you'll be helping your scalp and skin at the same time.
