Post your Beauty Secrets

Recommended Posts

1. I always use a face lotion with spf of 15+

 

2. Mac eye shadows (love their variety of color) and lip gloss

 

3. Clinque pressed powder, eye liner, and mascara.

 

4. Bumble and Bumble hair products. I also get my hair done every 6-7 weeks. I use paul mitchell hair coloring that my friend gets for me.

 

5. Go through my closet every few months and get rid of those clothes that I now think are hideous. A good piece of advice I got about cleaning the closet is "you know when you buy that outfit and you look in the mirror and say WOW I look good, you should be able to say that about every outfit that you own". Also if you have not worn it in a year, get rid of it.

1) Fish oil supplement- helps w/ skin and hair; and a daily vit. everyday. My mom swears by the fish oil...she's almost 60 and her skin looks great.

 

2) Fortunately I don't really break out so I just use Oil of olay products on my face. BUT I do believe in moisturizing your whole body after you shower. Another mom tip...

 

3) Teeth whitening by my dentist. It's worth it...the day after I got it done (of course I'm sure they were probably glowing still at that point), I would be talking and people would compliment me on my teeth/smile.

  1. i drink hot water with fresh squeezed lemon juice first thing in the AM before i do anything else
  2. put ground flaxseed and wheat germ on as many things as possible

I'm very interested in the skin products posted. I need to be more proactive about keeping my skin young and healthy. I have noticed lately that my skin doesn't have as much glow as I would like. I have exfoliated but it still just looks blaw.

 

Is obagi an expensive beauty regime? I did a little bit of research and from what I've read it seems you have to go to a dermatologist to receive treatment. Is that correct?

I looked in to the Obagi as well ... but just don't see how I can afford going to a specialist to get a prescription for it b/c I am sure it is expensive, or at least relatively so.

The Yonka -- I couldn't find where to purchase -- I guess perhaps that is another to get from the doctor or an aesthician (sp?).

I got the City Lips Lip Plumper that Tammy (host) recommended and I already love it and can tell a difference! I can't wait to see how much more full myips will be after 30 days!!!

 

Thanks for the tip, Tammy!

LOL.. Our routine is almost identical. I fell in love with the Philosophy products last year and have been using them ever since. I never go a day without using "Hope in a Jar"! It's my miracle moisturizer!!

  • jan marini eyelash thickener/legnthener` i used to have scrawny eyelashes...no more. i don't even wear mascara anymore and when i do for going out, it looks like i have fake eyelashes (my dh and sister thought they were fake)
I just finished my last laser hair removal treatment a few weeks ago and I was taking to the aestician about my skin, how it doesn't have the "glow" that I want for my wedding. She told me to try the Obagi C system. And it works! The first few weeks were terrible (reddness, dry patches...). I guess it detoxifies and exfoliates your skin. Now my skin looks great and dewy-like. It's expensive though...

As for the Jan Marini eyelash thickener: I was at work and was talking to my co-worker who I haven't seen in awhile. I immediately noticed her lashes...they were freakishly long! I had to ask her what the heck she did to them and low and behold she has been using the Jan Marini eyelash conditioner for a month. That darn thing works! I'm going to buy it soon.

I bought the Obagi C system over the internet. It was cheaper, and it never asked for a prescription.

    • 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
