Beauty Oils Spring 2016

Beauty Oils Spring 2016

Ciao bella,

Beauty Oils! What are they exactly and what do they do? You can find them everywhere at you favorite cosmetic haunts! Here I'll explain the Beauty and Health benefits of Beauty Oils!

Rosehip Oil - with wrinkle fighting vitamin A, it nourishes skin from past damage and increases cell revitalization. Use a small amount morning and night for a smoother complexion. Rosehip Oil also contains vitamin C and E which are notable antioxidants for anti-aging. I have used and sold Rosehip Oil for almost 20 years with fantastic results! Read below to purchase.

Olive Oil -great for a dry, itchy scalp. Saturate your scalp, leave on 20 minutes and thoroughly shampoo followed with a conditioner. Also makes hair shiny and manageable.

Jojoba Oil -found in body soaps, shampoos and face creams. Extracted from a plant known as a wonderful skin softener. Keeps frizzy hair tamed with a few drops or a hair treatment.

Argan Oil -also known as "liquid gold" in Morocco for a host of Beauty rituals. I use a few drops in my hair just before styling. Notable for it's vitamin E which strengthens hair and nails with daily use. Yes Glamazons, its maintenance for us gals everyday! What price Beauty?

Almond Oil -has been easing the symptoms of psoriasis and eczema with its Omega-3 ingredients. Great on irritated skin for it's calming properties. Enriched body moisturizer is a must!

Coconut Oil -this has been the new trend as it is full of nourishing fatty acids. Great as a make up remover. Use on dry skin anywhere to relieve flakiness. Face, body, lips and cuticles at this time of year can use all the moisture they need.

Grapeseed Oil -full of anti-oxidants that restore collagen, softening lines and helping skin to stay firm. Contains anti-aging properties. Great on hands as a treatment with a warm cloth for 10 minutes.

These are just a few of the Beauty Oils out there that I believe to be most popular and beneficial. If you find these ingredients in any of your cosmetics check for their purity and Best Buy dates.

If you need more details on these oils, please email or call me.

So now go out and "get soft" !!!!

Buona Pasqua to all my Post Gazette Family and readers!

Hair Shine!

Hair Shine!

Ciao bella,

Sometimes the best solutions are right under our noses. Like in our pantry.

One thing I know we do to our locks is use lots of product. Whether it's to add a film to make hair shiny, styling gel or hair spray to keep it in place, they all build up and reek havoc on our strands! Hot rollers, blow dry, flat iron and curling iron also can do their share of damage and cause dryness. So we must fight back with some tender loving care.

First we must remove the product build-up without stripping hair of it's natural oils. This will allow these ingredients below to penetrate hair shaft for amazing results. Wash and condition hair as usual. Combine 2 tablespoons Apple Cider Vinegar with a cup of water in a spray bottle. Spritz damp hair and leave on for 5 minutes. Then rinse. Smell will dissipate once hair is dried.

Apple Cider Vinegar has anti-fungal properties and is great for dry scalp as well as sealing and smoothing hair cuticle resulting in a beautiful shine!

These next two Hair Mask concoctions work wonders!

Remember protein and moisture are key ingredients for stronger and shinier hair.

Mix together egg whites and coconut oil in a bowl. Microwave for 30 seconds. Apply to damp hair and leave on for 15 minutes. Shampoo and see the shine!

To thicken your hair use this Pumpkin Conditioning Treatment.

Pumpkin is full of potassium which encourages hair growth, also rich in vitamin A that's healthy for the scalp.

In a blender mix together 2 cups of pumpkin (cooked and mashed), 1 tablespoon coconut oil, and 1 tablespoon honey. Blend until mixture is smooth at room temp.

Apply to damp hair and cover with a plastic cap for 15 minutes. Wash out well, condition and style as always.

Hope these tips will improve your locks as they did mine. So do it and go out and razzle, dazzle them today!

Buona giornata and God bless the United States of America!
