Loving my skin!!

Posted on October 2, 2015 at 2:35 PM

First off, my skin is by no means perfect but I have learned to accept it for what it is and how to give it the extra care it deserves!  I have been in the Natural Product Distributing industry for many years and I have tried my share of products like most women!   Those who visit me know I love to do skin consults and try to suggest what may work  best for you.   For my online customers I thought I would share some simple "secrets" that have really been making a difference in my skin care.  


First of all, I do dry skin brushing - if you haven't heard of it, you can google information on it - it's simple and only takes an extra 5 minutes before your shower.   I try to do this at least twice a week.  As the summer draws to an end, I really notice my skin is dry from all the swimming I love to do and so it's time for extra care.   Dry skin brushing really helps!


Secondly I take a natural fruit and vegetable supplement called Juice Plus - there is SO much research and many medical professionals who support this product and it's benefits - one being for skin/hair health.   And it has been around for a long time!    Unlike synthetic vitamins, I love that I am getting my extra "boost" from real fruits and vegetables.   Instead of buying a Timmies, I invest in taking extra fruits and vegetables everyday.    If you want more info, click on the link in our menu above.



Now for my current FAVORITE products!   All available through Only Green Genes of course!

 (for Tiber River products click the link above, for all others go to our store)  

I alternate between a few different ones...

For cleansing in the shower - I enjoy the Carina Organics Shampoo/Body Wash (mint/grapefruit/lavender) or a Tiber River Shower Shake , followed by a Tiber River Sugar Scrub in Honey Do or if you prefer a little less "grit" the Sugar Cake Scrub uses oatmeal which is great for skin problems.  I use the scrubs 2-3 times per week.


For my face I have been alternating between the Tiber River SOS (Save our skin) soap bar and the Pure Anada Fruit Enzyme Cleanser.

As soon as I have dried off - I do my facial toner - perfect time for this as your pores are now ready to soak in nutrients!   (yes our products actually help heal so you want them to soak into the skin - unlike other chemical filled products!).   And then I do my body cream - SO MANY choices in this area - Tiber River Body Butters if you are really dry or just  the body lotion works great too.   Carina Organics has a great unscented lotion for those who can't handle any scents.


Right now my facial toner of choice to start my day is the Tiber River Green Tea Tonic - it helps balance your skin's PH levels and provides a daily dose of antioxidants and a boost of moisture!     Once this has dried I follow with Rice eye cream and a daily moisturizer - Loving the Saving Face Moisurizer and Grab Life by the Pomegranates moisturizer!    


Once you have given your moisturizer time to soak in - at least 10 minutes if you can.    Then it's time to start makeup - Pure Anada has a new line of cream concealers for those spots that need extra care to start and then my new favorite part of putting on my "face" is applying my liquid foundation with a vegan Pure Anada Flat head Foundation brush.   I wish I had tried this technique YEARS ago - I had always used a makeup sponge - but will now never go back!   A little $16.00 brush has made me enjoy putting on my makeup.    I will put a video at the end of this blog so you can see how to properly use it.   It blends so well into my skin that I find myself not needing as much, if any, concealer.


Then follow with your mineral powder and mineral blush and always "seal your minerals" with a spray of Pure Anada Marine Mineral Mist - this helps to set the minerals for the day and again a great nutrient boost.   Just look at some of the ingredients:  Aloe barbadensis (Organic Aloe) Leaf Juice, Ascophyllum Nodosum (Organic Kelp) Extract, Aphanizomenon Flos Aquae (Organic Blue Green Algae) Extract, Hyaluronic Acid, Salix nigra (Black Willowbark) Extract, Sodium Chloride (Dead Sea Salt)!     I keep a travel size in my purse to use at any time of the day to refresh my face.    For eye makeup, eye liner and mascara - Pure Anada is awesome!     I also really love their lipsticks and glosses!   The prices are so affordable for the quality of product you get!


For my evening skin routine - to remove eye makeup, I highly recommend the creamy Pure Anada Cucumber/Aloe eye makeup remover.   It won't leave your eyelids dry like some products and works great.   Then I do the full - cleanse, tone, treatment, moisturize routine.  You would of course use the skin care package best for your skin type (drop me an email and I can help with this if you need).    I am in the anti-aging stage so I am using Tiber River Grab life by the Pomegranetes line plus before my moisturizer I add the Pure Anada Luxury Treatment Oil.


Off to bed, with a quick mist of Tiber River Lavendar Linen spray on my pillow to help with relaxing!   Thanks for reading!!


Be sure to watch this video and then order your foundation brush, you will LOVE it!!
