Beauty that is worth it

Image
this product is a favorite of mine. It is slightly on the high end side but it is worth it . Clarins is a product that will make your skin feel beautiful. In Jamaica we can only seem to get them at the duty free shops on the coast but when I was in Negril I had to stock up on it , Their line of beauty treatments ensures that their is something for everyone. I used to be a fan of Clinique , but if you love your skin , give the Clarins line a try

Jamaican Soaps

Image
There are some nice soaps made in Jamaica with medicinal properties , I suggest if you enjoy experimenting with soaps and lotions you try wholefood body care company its based in Discovery Bay in St Ann. They have a lemongrass soap that is simply refreshing as well as some other goodies. Blue Mountain aromatics has a great coconut lotion that I use to soothe my skin especially my feet they also have a brilliantcerasee soap which is really good for cooling down mosquito bites.http://www.wholefoodbodycare.com/wholesale_.html unfortunately Blue Mountain Aromatics seems to not to have a website but if you are interested please leave a comment and i will find the phone number or email for them

Black Soap

Image
Sometimes we don't have to buy expensive remedies to treat our skin. Case in point DuduOsun Black Soap . I was introduced to this in New York years ago. Dudu Soap is black and is specially formulated entirely from natural ingredients and herbs, this soap will have you feeling refreshed and silky smooth. Restores damaged skin and is helpful in healing chronic eczema, acne, freckles and dark spots. Scented with Osun (Cam wood extract) citrus juices and native honey. With Aloe Vera and natural vitamins. For awhile I couldn't find it in Jamaica but most beauty supplies sell it as well as the natural herbal stores . its ugly but it is definitely a beauty tool .

Your Skin

Image
Every one loves a beautiful skin and we all tend to look for ways to maintain our skin so it can be a healthy-looking one. Options for ensuring a healthy skin range from using cleansers to undergoing expensive facial surgeries. But it seems most dermatologist and skin care experts would generally agree that there are three ways that you could use in ensuring you have a healthy skin: knowing your skin type, treating any skin problems the moment you notice them, and following a daily skin regimen. You might be familiar with the use of facial wash, toner and moisturizing cream routine if your skin is prone to acne but you should know that there are also others, which could be in terms of your diet.
We know that are various kinds of foods, which have the natural potency of nourishing our bodies both inside the body and on the skin. Some things quickly come to your mind, which are fresh fruits and vegetables. In ancient times before the appearance of commercial skin care products in the mar…

beauty from the inside

Image
We all know that no matter what kind of cosmetics you put on if you are unhealthy it will show . Try to include 4 or more servings of fruits and vegetables in your daily diet. Right know fruits and vegetables are so inexpensive in Jamaica. Please try and make an effort and keep your body beautiful from the inside . A friend of mine who was suffering from cancer was put on a diet of fruits and vegetables and after 2 years of chemo and the doctor saying that she is going to die she is on the road to recovery. She had to omit meat, chicken, bread , sugar all things that we know are killing us , she has to juice calaloo very day as well as eat broccoli, chocho and all the other foods that were put here to keep us healthy . We must all try to find ways to stay gorgeous from the inside out. Every so often I am going to include posts on natural health and dieting and what herbs and foods will keep us beautiful

Victoria Secret Beauty Rush

Image
If you can get access to a Victoria Secret store or you have someone traveling abroad, take my advice and buy several tubes of Beauty Rush Lip gloss from Victoria's Secret . It has to be the best tasting lip gloss ever the finish is fabulous and the taste of the gloss is heavenly . If you are a chocolate lover try their chocolate flavored gloss

Mascara

Image
I am very fussy when it comes to my mascara . I used to use Black Opal , but gosh it is so clumpy , gross , so now I am now using Maybelline Volume Express, Turbo Boost , love it , but what else could I expect. It separates , lengthens its clean and neat . With this mascara I have even left off the eyeliner that I usually wear
