DIY Beauty Routine for Spa Clients

Editor’s note: When spa clients come in for a beauty treatment, they may look to you as the spa therapist for a sustainable beauty routine that they can take with them when they leave. Makeup artist Stacey Hobbs gives us some helpful tips about where to start.

Makeup is designed to enhance naturally beautiful features, not to camouflage them. When applying makeup, always remember to remove any and all excess product onto a paper towel or the back of the hand. This prevents makeup from looking caked on. In addition, apply makeup in a downward motion to prevent the product from entering the pores. Another option is to apply the product from side-to-side, just so long as it is in a downward motion. Don’t use fingers to apply makeup. The oils in the hand differ from the oils on the face. Mixing these two, plus the oils in makeup products, will cause makeup to separate.

I have broken it all down in Spa Inc Magazine! Get all the details in the mag! 🙂

You’ve heard me right. In addition to chamomile to calming an upset stomach, calming migraines, calming the redness on your skin (even for babies!), it has amazing benefits to thicken your hair. Who knew?! Quite honestly, this doesn’t apply to me, as I have really thick hair, enough for the bald heads, as my many hair stylists have told me since i can remember. Not too brag. So, I had turned to a friend who has thin hair to try this out. 

Since thick hair derives from healthy hair (how to obtain and main it, click on the link for my tips :)). All you have to do is drink a cup of chamomile tea.

Dark Circles

An alternate critical focal point of chamomile tea is that its tea packs can be utilized to treat dark circles under eyes.

Direction

Brew chamomile tea bags for five minutes. Cool it for quite a while before holding under eyes so it can be mediocre by your eyes. Keep them on your eyes for five minutes. Lastly, wash your eyes with clean, new water. Pat dry. You can top it off with your fave eye moisturizer. 

Note: This cure serves to lighten the dark circles under eyes and give easing from eye puffiness.

4 Tricks to Reduce Inflamed (Redness) Skin

 

Image result for lemon juice

Lemon Juice

Lemons, limes and grapefruits are natural bleechers, which means they help to remove any uneven complexion, redness, dark circles, brown/sun/age spots, etc. IF you don’t have sensitive skin, you can use the lemon juice (or any citric fruit that is mentioned) as is. If your skin is sensitive, then dilute the citrus juice. Dilute it with water. If your skin is very sensitive, like mine is, then I diltue the lemon juice by pouring in the same amount of lemon juice. So, if you have a quarter of a cup of lemon juice in your cup/jar/bowl, then the same amount of cool water is what will do the trick. I promise you, it will not cause an irritation to the skin. Same goes for lime and grapefruit. This mixture makes for a great all natural toner. 

Aspirin

Ibuprofen to be precise helps to reduce reduce redness, this includes blemishes. For the full recipe, please click on the link above. 🙂

Bamboo Gel

Bamboo reduces and calms any redness on your skin. It’s also an anti-aging ingredient, so in addition to removing the redness, it also keeps the fine lines and wrinkles at bay. Bamboo has recently been discovered to be a bit more effective than aloe vera, in addition, it works much quicker, too. Don’t get me wrong, aloe vera is an oldie, but goodie. I know that The Face Shop has a really good bamboo gel.

Benefits of Chamomile Tea

Chamomile

Thanks to its bacterial and calming properties, chamomile is so gentile that you can even apply it on your baby’s bottom when they have a rash or just straight redness. After brewing the tea bag, through away the tea bag. Wait for the tea to cool down. I’d say wait about ten minutes or so. Use a makeup pad (one that you use to remove your makeup) on areas where you have inflammatory skin. Even rosacea. This has been an ancient treatment to treat inflamed skin. Or you can enjoy a cup of tea after brewing it. If so, enjoy!

DIY Face Mask: Yogurt & Honey

 

I had recently made this mask. It contains yogurt and honey. Yogurt is so good for your skin. It’s excellent to restore hydration into your skin, (making it an anti-aging ingredient), plus yogurt is for very sensitive skin. It brightens your skin, which means it will brighten your blemishes, dark circles, redness, basically any uneven skin tone. Plus, it naturally reduces fine lines and wrinkles, making it such a great anti-aging face mask. The lactic acid in yogurt will help dissolve dead skin and tighten pores. 

As I was making my mask, I will admit I got a little, okay, really generous with the honey. Lol. It became more of a honey mask, than yogurt, even though this face mask does contain yougurt. I would use two table spoons of yogurt, plus one squirt of honey. In that bowl is what too much honey in the yogurt looks like. See, I love honey in my masks, haha. Oops. I will make this recipe better next time ;). I always cleanse my face before applying any mask. My pores need to be prepped and awake, so I get the most out of my face masks. I don’t want any mask I use for my skin to receive a bit of the goodness, as oppose the full amount.

DIY Reduce Cellulite with Coffee Grinds!

Image result for coffee grinds

#Cellulite! What a pain to have. Am I right?! Cellulite is normally found on the fattiest parts of the body, so this would usually be the upper thighs and the bum. Six months after I had turned thirty I got my first sighting of cellulite on my butt. How dare they pop up! Lol. #WelcomeToTheThirties !!! No, I’m not going to show you my cellulite, because of where it is. I have learned the best way to reduce it is by using a harsh #exfoliator. #CoffeeGrinds. To get the best results, so the grinds are being used efficiently, I prefer to use them after I have brewed a cup of #coffee (except I seldom drink it). I’ll brew it, just for the sake of using coffee grinds to reduce my cellulite. 

This is what I do to reduce the cellulite. 

I take the already used coffee grinds put them into a bowl or jar. When showering right before I use body wash, I will use the grinds right where I have the cellulite. Massage it. Remove it with warm water and a wash cloth. I then use my body wash. After I shower, I use body lotion.

If you want something quick and simple. Wet the area that has cellulite with warm water with a wash cloth. Apply the coffee grinds. Massage it with your hands. Remove it with warm water. Apply body lotion. And, viola! You are fini (finished). 

Since I don’t have stretch marks, I had a couple of good friends of mine who have tested out the coffee grinds on their stretch marks, and they have said that it also helps to reduce stretch marks.

DIY Face Mask: Banana & Honey

I had decided to try this what was supposed to be a one ingredient face mask, but eventually turned into a two ingredient face mask; banana and honey. Now, if you plan on storing this face mask in the fridge to use for later in the week, use a whole banana. It makes a large batch. If that’s the case, and you want to opt for honey – apply two or three squirts. I used two generous amounts for one whole banana. 

Bananas contain vitamins A,B,C, E, iron, zinc and loads of potassium. Bananas are excellent to reduce inflammatory skin (redness, including rosacea), acne/blemishes, dehydration, sensitive, anti-aging, so it reduces fine lines and wrinkles, thanks to it’s hydrating factor. Bananas are equivalent to the results you receive from botox. The difference is that one of them; you are injecting a needle and the other treatment you are applying a mask onto your face, or eating a banana, or both. 🙂

I love honey in masks, even on it’s own. Honey adds additional hydration for those who have very dehydrated in Winter. My skin is dehydrated all year round, but in the Winter, forget it, talk about loss of hydrated.

Ingredients:

1/3 or 1/4 banana

Fork (I replaced the wisk with a fork)

Honey (optional) – about 1 squirt

Directions:

In a bowl mash the banana to your level of smoothness. Add a honey, if you like. Mix it well. After your skin has been cleansed, with your favourite cleanser, apply this mixture. Leave it on for fifteen minutes. Afterwards, remove it with a warm wash cloth. Finish it with your moisturizer.

Reduce Puffy Eyes & Dark Circles with Green Tea Bags

When I want to remove puffy eyes, and even dark circles, I use green tea bags, as opposed to regular tea bags to place over my eyes. Green tea contain antioxidents, plus Vitamin C. So, it keeps your eyes looking young. Perfect bonus. This is my trick when sleep just isn’t doing it, as in loss of sleep.

I may brew the tea bags, or leave them dry and place them right over my eyes. It really does remove the puffiness and dark circles. Now, I must say, if eye puffiness is hereditary, I’m sorry to give bad news, but no matter the cream or treatment you do, the puffiness will not ever lift. If it isn’t hereditary, you have hope in saying good-bye this issue.

So, all I do is remove two green tea bags, lie down and place them over my eyes for about ten minutes to fifteen minutes. And, remove. It really depends on the level of darkness and puffiness. To be honest, at thirty, I don’t get a sevre amount of either … at least not yet.

You can also brew two tea bags, place them in the fridge to cool them down, then place these two tea bags over your eyes for about ten minutes to fifteen minutes. Then discard.
