Hydra Beauty Nutrition 

Hydrating care for dry lips. HYDRA BEAUTY NUTRITION Nourishing Lip Care smoothes, soothes and protects damaged lips, while revealing their volume and natural radiance. Its deliciously scented texture instantly melts onto lips.

 

Stacey Says: It’s honestly one of the best hydrating lines that I’ve ever tried. Dehydrated skin and sensitive skin go hand in hand, really, so this feels so comfortable, so nice on the skin. My blemishes that appear when my skin is dehyrated, were completely gone. This is what happens when you have dehydrated skin. These blemishes appear on the cheeks, mainly, but can also appear on the chin at times. The nourishing lip care is amazing.

Ultimate Anti-Aging Rules

When it come to anti-aging skincare, these are the four steps that you need to do.

 

1. Cleanse

A cleanser is designed to prep your skin, clean it, open your pores getting your skin ready for the next steps.

 

2. Exfoliate

Exfoliating first came about, to promote younger-looking skin, as well as to remove dead skin cells. Eventually, it became clear that not only men (men have been exfoliating for decades), but women, too, needed to remove dead skin cells from their pores to allow new skin cells to grow to its full capacity. Cleaning the pores that have become clogged not only due to dead skin, but also the oil. Oil, no matter the skin type get clogged in the pores.

 

3. Hydrate

Dehydration is what leads to mature skin, this means fine lines. To prolong the aging process, hydrate your skin. Drinking water, green tea is just as good. Actually, green tea re-hydrates you quicker than water. It also contains Vitamin C, which is excellent to restore collagen. There are so many products directed towards hydrating your skin, whether your skin is oil (oily skin can get dehydrated. Dehydration is a skin condition, not a skin type).

4. SPF

It has been proven by dermatologist that the best form of a moisturizer on the market to prolong aging is sunscreen. It prevents sun burns, as well as for the sun to dry out your skin, making it an excellent candidate to keep the skin moist. Look for a the bottle to say Broad Spectrum, as this will protect your skin from the UVA & UVB rays.

Rocky Mountain Face Polish & Face Mask

I had recently tried a face polish and a face mask by Rocky Mountain Soap. I really liked them, both. I’m obsessed. I use these two products as a DIY spa day.

Brightening Face Polish (C$16.75, www.rockymountainsoap.com)

The Brightening Face Polish in Bamboo deeply cleanses the skin with an exfoliant, too. Because, it also contains bamboo. Bamboo brightens the skin. Which is good for those who have acne or blemishes, regardless of skin type or skin condition. My skin felt that deep clean, with the mild exfoliant, with a silky soft finish. My skin was polished, so polished it was fantastic. Face Polish  is for anyone who has blemishes/acne wanting to lighten these imperfections, or any imperfections, such as dark circles, discoloration (redness). As for skin type, due to it being a deep cleanser, well, deep cleaners are generally designed for oily to normal skin types. This formula tightens pores.  May I add, how much I love the mint smell of this Face Polish. It’s toxin-free.

Honey and Face Polish

How to Apply:

With the powdered mixture that you have taken a dime size amount in a bowl, mix it with a bit of water. Apply all over your face. Rinse off with a warm wash cloth.

I’ve used water and the mixture, as well as honey and the mixture. Honey is a natural cleanser, so I had combined a two-in-one, actually it’s more like a three-in-one; cleanser, exfoliator, moisturizer.

Also Try:

Combining this Polish with water will give you the most intense exfoliation, but you can combine it with Cleansing Oil, Day Cream, Honey, Yogurt or whatever nourishing and natural base that your skin is craving. Polish away dead skin to reveal your freshest, most glowing complexion.

Additional Information:

Tea Tree and Eucalyptus that gives it the fresh, ‘wake me up’ scent. We’ve added French Green Clay for its excellent detoxifying properties.

I t does have teh wake me up scent, to which I love. It smells so refreshing. I cans smell it all day. I do love mint

Saccharum Officinarum (Organic Evaporated Cane Sugar)*, Illite (Green Clay), Bambusa Vulgaris (Bamboo) Stem Powder, Gaultheria Procumbens (Wintergreen) Leaf Extract, Mentha Arvensis (Peppermint) Leaf Oil, Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree) Leaf Oil, Eucalyptus Globules Oil, Salvia Sclarea (Clary Sage) Oil. *Organic

 

Hydrating Face Mask (NEW) in Aloe & Honey (C$12.50, www.rockymountainsoap.com)

I can’t get enough of this Hydrating Face Mask. It deeply hydrates my skin, thanks to the aloe and honey that deeply hydrates the skin delivering a glow all day.
