    DAY 11 Beautiful Feet   Who doesn't love the feel of freshly pedicured feet?  Summer is when we bare it all, including our feet. There are some of us though, that love everything about pedis except the "ticklish scrubbing" on the bottom of our feet! Comfort when getting a pedi is solely in the hands of the technician, we've all experienced the tech who treats your foot like it's a slab of meat, not relaxing! One way to get rid of dry skin on your feet before you go for your pedi and not have to go through any discomfort, is this great 3 ingredient foot soak!       Beautiful Feet Foot Soak     1/4 cup Blue Listerine 1/4 cup vinegar 1/2 cup warm water a few mint leaves (optional)   Soak for 10 -15 minutes....

  Day 10   Clean Your Make up Brushes     Raise your hand, who's guilty of this one? I know I don't clean my brushes like I should, but when I stopped and thought about it, I would bet my life that most people don't take this as seriously as they should.   Knowing that all those little bacteria are hiding in the bristles is enough to well, make you want to throw up. Cleaning  your brushes at least every 1-2  weeks assures that bacteria is not building up on your brush and  bacteria won't be transferred  to your face.  Cleaning brushes also keeps the bristles soft and prevents the make up from mixing and creating shades that are no longer true to color.     How To Clean Make-Up Brushes   There are a number of ways to clean...

    Day 9   Try An Epson Salt Bath With Essential Oils         Even though we know certain things are beneficial for our health many times we just get caught up with our daily routine and are too tired to do anything that seems like it takes any extra work, even if it's something that is totally relaxing and healthy.   Epson salt baths are one easy way to address an array of concerns and body discomfort. Epson salt is not actually salt but a naturally occurring mineral compound of magnesium and sulfate.    Epson salt has many natural health benefits and is a natural remedy for a number of physical ailments. Magnesium and sulfate are absorbed through the skin so enjoying an epson salt  bath is the ideal...

      Day 6 Purchase a high quality professional- level sunscreen and USE IT!!     All sun protection is not created equal. There is a difference between professional- level sun protection and over-the-counter sun protection.   Being well-informed about which type of sunscreen to purchase lies in understanding the difference between Physical Sunscreens and Chemical Sunscreens.  Choosing a sunscreen that won't irritate your skin or cause an allergic reaction is paramount in your choice.   Looking for cutting edge technology? There's a NEW sunscreen that allows the body to produce vitamin D. Deficiencies of vitamin D have been on the rise over the last few decade due to the use of sunscreen and sunblock. "Solar D" was designed with compounds with differing filter compositions to maximize vitamin D  production while maintaining it's sun protection," says Michael...

        Day 5 Purge All Old Skin Care And Make-Up                 Do you look at the expiration dates on the foods you eat?  Of course you do. But many of us pay more attention to the expiration dates on our credit cards than we do to the dates on our beauty products. These's a reason why beauty products  have expiration dates, they can harbor harmful bacteria , yuck!     Does it really matter if you use expired products?   It matters if you want the results you paid for. Using products after the expiration date  can result in harm to the skin (as in the case of an expired sunscreen) as well as getting NO benefit at all from a product. For example, some acne  and anti -aging...
