Oh - I do love pedicures though - that's my guilty pleasure. Playing soccer does bad things to my feet - so I like to keep them in tip-top shape!
hehe- I feel like you Ann. Although, I have to say that this wedding has totally increased the amount of pampering and attention to beauty!

One thing I didn't think of earlier is that I am a religious Crest Whitestrips user. I know it's not much of a secret, but they work great for me. I also avoid cola and coffee to keep my teeth white. People comment on my teeth all the time, even patients who are perfect strangers. I think I have gotten about 10 nurses at work using them now...I should be getting a commission from Crest! I have used them for probably 5 years, once every 6 months or so and my teeth always look really white.

Sarah my friend Jamie uses them non stop her teeth are so WHITE but I'm planning on getting mine whitened before the wedding I just can't be bothered stripping those things on all the time, I feel like they always slide off

OK, I don't know if these are "secrets", maybe more like tactics!

 

1. I use Proactive Solution for my face - I wish I would have started it sooner!

2. I ALWAYS wear sunscreen - ALWAYS.

3. I have hyperpigmentation from bc pills, so I use a prescription creme occasionally called Tri-Luma, it works very well.

4. Makeup: I love Colorscience mineral makeup! It's similar to Edyta's Jane Iredale makeup. It really diffuses any imperfections & it feels like nothing on your face. It's also another layer of sun protection.

5. Favorite wake-me-up eye brightener: Benefit Eye Bright. It's a pink creamy pencil that you use under your eyes, in the corners, or anywhere you have shadows. It really wakes your eyes up...good stuff.

6. I always drink at least 8 glasses of water every day. I start when I get out of bed in the morning - I hear a cold glass of water in the am is supposed to be good for you metabolism.

OK, I don't have many tips but here's what I have:

 

1. Wrinkle cream. I don't have wrinkles yet but I'd like to avoid getting them rather than having to deal with them later. So every night before I go to bed I use an eye cream and then an all over heavier nightcream.

 

2. Yoga. I love it. I stopped about 6 months ago because I was having knee surgery but I plan on starting again (my old yoga teacher stopped offering classes so i need to find a new one). It is so good for you in so many ways: Clear mind, better posture, stronger mucles and therefore bones, increased flexibility... just writing about it makes me want to go find another class right now! I feel nervous though because I haven't done it since my surgery and I don't know how my knee is going to respond.

 

3. Neutrogena Face Wash - unscented. I have been using this cleanser for so many years - it is gentle but effective. I can't stand perfumes so the unscented version is my favorite.

 

4. Eyeliner. Don't leave home without it wink.gif

 

5. Never brushing my hair. Seriously. I have curly hair and if I even bring a brush near it it becomes super frizzxy and awful - even before showering. So I basically never brush my hair unless I've just straightened it and even then it makes it frizzy!

This thread is an oldie but a goodie!

 

 

1. Cocoa Butter - I never go to sleep without greasing up, I swear by it for a soft and blemish-free face (the body oil is great for just after shower too)

 

2. Silk Therapy (biosilk) - All I need on an island (besides tweezers..lol) makes my hair feel and smell fabulous, plus it works on skin too

 

3. Seaplasma - detangles hair, moisturizes & is refreshing to spray on your face when you feel drab (or dry)

 

4. Lipbalm - Avon dew kiss is my favorite, I'm never without a balm of some sort

 

5. Oil of Olay - been using their facial products for years, the foam wash, daily facial cloths, and daily serum are my favorites

I just have to say ditto to that! I wish I could brush my hair like Marsha Brady, but it's just never worked :o(

hmmm, good thread to bump, Jamie

 

 

I use Philosophy Cleansers and products for my face: Purity to cleanse, takes off all your makeup and cleanses great. Hope in a jar after that (exfioliating moisturizer) , Hope in a tube eye cream. I never, ever, ever got to bed with makeup on.

 

I use MAC Studio Fix lotion with SPF on my face as a base for my makeup.

 

I take flax oil vitamins and drink lots of water to keep my skin smooth.

I'm not a huge makeup person - never foundation, rarely a bit of powder... But there are two things that I've found recently that I refuse to live without:

 

1. Semi-permanent lipstick. I am a huge fan of Cover Girl's Outlast - $8 a tube, put it on in the morning and when it dries you can kiss your honey to your hearts content and its still there.

2. Lancome's Cils Booster - sort of a primer for your mascara. Your eyelashes get stronger and your mascara stays on forever! And I just use a cheapy Max Factor mascara - no need to buy the pricey stuff to make the combo work.

Hhhmmm....

 

Great thread!

 

I just started using Revitalash to thicken my eyelashes for the wedding. It's supposed to take about 2 months so we'll see how it works (my hair stylist recommended I try ti as opposed to the extensions). if it doesn't work I might try Tammy (host's) Jan Marini Eyelash Thickener.

 

MAC or Bare Minerals foundation.

 

Whitening Trays from the dentist. My teeth have always been white (despite not having qut smoking yet) and the whitening trays just give them that extra sparkle. I love it!).

 

That's all for now -- wish I did more...

My beauty secrets aren't very glamorous ... but work

 

Face - I use good old noxzema for a cleanser. Then, I use rubbing alcohol with a cotton ball, and finish with a good moisturizer. Like I said, not glamorous, but works excellently for me and is cheap.

 

Skin (body) - when I shave my legs, I use Apricot Scrub instead of shaving cream. You go through razors more often, but the shave is so close, and my legs feel so soft afterwards. Also, I swear by Eucerin body lotion. My skin can get a little dry in the winter, and this product is great!

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
