Welcome Home Le Mieux
Back in November, Le Mieux held a fundraising benefit for the storm victims in Puerto Rico 🇵🇷. Almost a dozen fashion bloggers helped to make the event a success by donating some of their favorite threads for the market- like set up at the Bielle Institute, founded by Le Mieux's creator Janel Luu.
I had heard the name before, but it wasn't until a friend and colleague, Lisa Morgan, founder and creator of prettylittleshoppers.com shared the events link on her social media that I remembered that this would be a good brand to explore for Mila Artistry.
So, the second she shared the link is when I reserved my spot for the event. I thought to myself "What perfect timing to host such a heartwarming benefit, and it's walking distance of where i live" Plus, It would be great to catch up with Lisa.
When I got to the benefit, the Le Mieux team greeted guests at the door with generous gift bags and delicious treats. I really hope they host another event soon because it was really beautiful and welcoming!
I left the event with a good sense of the brands culture and personality. But thats not all I left with! I made sure to grab the Skin Perfecter tool and a few additional products that I knew I needed to try.After some time of experiencing the skincare for myself I decided that Le Mieux would be a good fit for my skincare boutique and salon. Well, I couldn't have been more right because it looks beautiful on display and feels even better on the skin.
Visit the links I've shared (in the blue text) to explore the luxury of the Le Mieux brand & don't forget to visit Pretty Little Shoppers for tips on beautiful fashion and luxury lifestyle.
And of course you can always come visit me for a facial or coffee date so we can talk about nothing but The Best for your skin. 😉 Get it? Because Le Mieux means the best in French.😄 See you soon!
Your Friends Might be a Bad influence on your skin, sorry. Think about this, we all have that one friend with the gorgeous, non-textured even skin who can use just about anything on her face right? She’s got more rewards points from Ulta and Sephora than a fourth year English Lit student at Yale has Starbucks rewards. That’s a lot of points! But you’ve tried a few of her recommendations and were occasionally sorry that you did. Like the eye cream that burns even though you only dabbed it with your ring finger, the gentle face wash which left your skin tight and dry or the other way around. And that really cool black magnetic face mask that left your skin red and irritated for days. Girl, If you are that friend and you are reading this you might want to issue an apology to your dearest friends and SLOW YOUR ROLE! Let me do my job.
On the other hand, you may have that one girl friend who you don’t even recognize anymore. Her skin went from a peperoni pizza pie to skin so smooth and clear that babies get jealous. And that’s because she only takes beauty advice from her coolest, smartest girlfriend, AKA her beautician. Pun intended. The only thing she would recommend you to do is get in contact with me, I mean her, err her esthetician. ;) Well, whomever you decide to get in contact with, SHE is the best friend to be taking beauty advice from because she lets the pros do their jobs. And that is where the magic is.
Don’t get me wrong, I love when people share product testimonials and represent which brands they love! It helps make the world go-round, after all, sharing really is caring. Just be careful what you choose to try, especially if you have any specific concerns about your skin because what may work for one, may not work for others.
I hope you all enjoyed your thanksgiving festivities whether it was low key or with your entire clan!
Talking about Fenty Beauty
If I were to mention the name Robyn Fenty, no one would know who I’m speaking of. But If I mention Fenty Beauty everyone would know that Rhiana is the arcane name behind this newly launched line which caters to a new generation of color saturated skin. With a cache of 40 different shades ranging from Ivory tones to deep Kukui tones you can say that Rhiana’s goal was to make sure that anyone could be fit into their proper shade. On a side note, Kukui is the Hawaiian state tree. the nuts of this tree are used for many things and in many remedies. The shells of the Kukui nut are also used to make neckless and bracelets that you would typically see at gift shops in Hawaii.
Moving on, by now you have seen a ton of reviews given by vloggers and bloggers from around the world. And maybe you’ve tried it yourself like I did. Either way, if you are curious about my opinion I’ll show you what I’ve tried and how I tried it. Keep in mind that there are many skin types and conditions so my preference and experience won’t be the same for everyone else.
FOUNDATION- The color I chose was 370. It was the best fit for my tone and shade. I was fooled by the colors that looked the closest to my skin at an eyes glance. So, it took me a few tries to find my fit. I first tried it without any primer or moisturizer just so I could feel it bare. And from there, I tried other methods. My personal favorite method is to complete my skin care then mix my foundation with my SPF. If I need more coverage I press in 1 or 2 dots in the needed areas only. I usually apply my foundation with my hands by moving in a gentle upward motion and I finish with pressing the product into the skin. This method gives the skin a beautiful natural finish with no traceable lines. Sometimes I use a large buffing brush when I’m adding a fuller coverage.
Here are the ways I played with the application
BARE TEXTURE- If you’ve heard that the foundation dries quickly then you heard correctly. My skin is mostly normal to dry these days so the foundation went matte as soon as it touched my bare skin and exposed any texture that it could find.
PRIMED TEXTURE- I tried the foundation with the primer alone, and the texture was just the same. Keep in mind my skin is normal- dry. More on the dry side though.
MIXED PRIMER + FOUNDATION – This method sheered out the foundation a bit and it gave me more slip. But, my skin absorbed the product just as quickly as the other method so
MOISTURIZER- After toning and moisturizing the foundation went on and finished more comfortably and was still a nice matte texture. Usually when I do this with a matte foundation it leaves me with a satin finish.
MIXED MOISTURIZER + FOUNDATION – Or mixed SPF, whichever. This was the best method for me. I mixed 1- 2 pumps of foundation with one drop of Control Corrective’s Botanical Soothing SPF 30 over the primer and it spread smoothly. It also set natural – matte.
I like the overall texture of the foundation. It is definitely water resistant and non-transferable. If you are familiar with Temptu airbrush makeup the texture is very similar to that once it is set. I can wear it all day and I can wear it without a setting powder.
What I don’t like about it is that for my specific skin type, it isn’t practical for an everyday grab and go foundation. You know, like when you wake up late and think “I’ll just put my foundation on in the car.” Nope! Because it dries so quickly.
MATCH STIX TRIO- Tan 300 was my trio. I think I’m gonna go back and grab the suede Match Stick because the caramel is a bit on the ashy side for me. Suede is probably the exact match of my skin but that is how I prefer my highlight as I just use a deeper blush with a deep contour. The Rum shimmer stick is just perfect. I use it for a quick eyelid and lip highlight.Speaking of highlight, The Galaxy Collection is available now! It really does look out of this world and I can't wait to try it!
By the way, did you notice my cute aloha cosmetic pouch? I got it from Matsumoto Shave ice on the north shore of Oahu. You can order it online here 👉🏽 matsumotoshaveice.com
But I recommend that you take a ✈️ trip to the cute island store in person instead!
You’ve heard of it. You’ve seen the before and after’s, and you’ve watched the countless you-tube reviews. But have you tried the Hanacure?
For months, this South Korean miracle mask had been sold out and on every ones most wanted list! But I, like countless other curious beauty gurus, have finally gotten my face in “the all- in- one” miracle mask. I wondered if the claims of immediate visible results could actually be true. Skeptically, I know that there are a lot of consumer skincare products that have claims of immediate results. But how often do they deliver? I was also curious as to how this; One mask “fits all skin types” product, compares to a professional facial given by a licensed beauty expert like myself.
I’ve been told that my Gifting Beauty treatment room is “magical”. My guests, which some of them might be you, benefit from 60-90- minute facial treatments that offer immediate results in texture, clarity, and rejuvenation.
But what I always reveal to my guests is that the real magic is in maintaining your facial results on your own at home.
Beyond the authenticity of my being a collector of fine skincare and beauty tools, I am often asked my opinion or advice on the latest product or treatment. And by nature, I analyze the skin first. So, one might ask if it is necessary to have a skin analysis before using the Hanacure product since it claims to work for all skin types. My response is yes, always. Especially when a before and after is involved because you always want to be able to note the comparisons.
Clean, beautiful, and descriptive is how I perceive the Hanacure packaging.
Upon opening, there is an instructional and educational booklet that explains what to expect, how it works and how to use.
There is one single glass vial of lifting serum per gelling solution pack and one reusable applicator brush similar to what I use for facials.
The scent is neutral.
I cleansed my skin with control corrective 2% salicylic face wash because I am obviously breaking out. (I blame the break out on the Halloween🎃 sugar binge.) Then, I toned using a gentle botanical toner also from control corrective. Once the lifting serum and gelling solution were mixed I applied on my dry skin and let it sit for 30 minutes.
Tightening and mild tingling is the only thing I felt. My skin is normal- dry with occasional breakouts so I’m sure the sensation I felt will be different from that of other skin types and conditions.
The mask was simple to remove! Soluble to water without leaving a trace and without having to repetitively rub the product off the skin. I did notice very mild sensitivity and redness. And I Also noticed that the inflammation in my breakouts were immediately reduced. Not gone, but reduced. I was hoping that the slight puffiness below my eyes would go down but it did not.
I followed the removal of my Hanacure mask with my skincare regiment and found that my skin absorbed the product quicker than normal leaving my skin softer and more-supple.
I like this mask as a bi weekly or emergency home maintenance product between facials, but I certainly don’t think that it is the answer to all of your skin care problems and should not replace your esthetician! At $29 per single application I think it’s worth the price, and with holiday season approaching very rapidly it could be the perfect stocking stuffer for anyone.

🌸Getting Gorgeous With Tea🌸
A few years ago, I discovered a tea that would change my life. I have always loved tea and I drink it at least at least 2x a day. When I was younger I spent a lot of time with my great grandmother Evelyn. Evelyn had the most beautiful skin anyone had ever seen and everyone would just rave about it all the time. People would always ask her what she used and she’d laugh while saying 🍭 “sugar!”. It was only funny because everyone who knew her understood that 80% of her diet was sugar! And even though it was and still is a dangerous diet she lived to be 89 years old and left us when I was 19. I would definitely consider myself lucky having had the opportunity to spend so much of my life with her.
Looking back, my granny was always drinking tea. Around the clock 🕙 she’d have a cup of tea within an arm’s reach. Tea is both hydrating and has its health benefits. I learned a lot from her and I definitely benefited from her pore-less, wrinkleless genes. And clearly, I have a mad taste for tea.
As I walked down the tea aisle 🛒 I was glancing over the different teas and I came across one in a round pink canister which read “Get Gorgeous”. This tea offered me clear skin and great antioxidant benefits. I was sold. I don’t normally break out on a regular basis thanks to granny. But, just like a lot of people I get breakouts at inappropriate times.
I read more about this “get Gorgeous “tea and how it was caffeine free, perfect! Because I unwind every night with a cup of tea.
So, I get it home and I have to have a cup immediately. As soon as I opened the container I was carried away by the aroma. I didn’t understand what I was smelling but it was beautiful and I let it carry me away. The rooibos tea is saturated with ingredients like hibiscus, orange peel, red clover, burdock root, and natural pomegranate. So, the harmony of the flavors is mouth-watering and I felt gorgeous with every sip.

👩🏽💻- Mila Grass
Pumpkin 🎃 Spice will certainly spice up your skin care routine and boost your cellular turnover. Vitamins A,C,and D will help brighten firm and plump the skin, smooth fine lines and quench dry skin. You'll love this seasonal treat! This facial will be $80 until Thanks Giving. 🍂
🍂Fall into stunning skin🍂
Autumn is the season of progression. The color of the trees, the weather, our wardrobe, our diets, and our hair and makeup routines all segue into a warm scene of relaxation. We need this time to prep our skin from one extremity to another. This is the time to fall in love with your skin. Habitually we always wait until winter to treat our skin with a more sophisticated beauty regiment. We often think that because it’s cooler outside that the sun doesn’t affect our skin as much as it would during the warmer months. WRONG! Sure, our leisure outdoor activities may slow down a bit more but have you ever seen the sun slow down? Have you ever noticed the pollution in our environment seize? No. Our skin is directly affected by the ozone layer. Even if you were lucky enough to have been born with perfect genetics that everyone envies, your skin is effected by the ozone. But why is fall the optimal time for sophisticated beauty treatments? Because your skin is already transitioning to repair itself from summer mode to winter. So why not give it a bit more TLC? Here are some brilliant non- evasive treatments that will give you a graceful fall into winter.
This peel will assist your skin in its natural exfoliation process by breaking up and lifting dead skin cells, breaking up hyperpigmentation and evening out the complexion. It removes and heals damaged skin and helps to generate newer cells. I’m really keen on this peel because It also noticeably smooths out fine lines and wrinkles, reduces acne scaring and rejuvenates skin by restoring a healthy appearance.
O2 Clear facial (control corrective)
The thing about oxygen is that bacteria on the skin cannot survive in it.
This brightening decongesting facial kills bacteria in the pores, while simultaneously digesting dead skin cells at the surface of the skin. The o2 clear facial also breaks down blackheads assisting in easy and comfortable extractions.
This is a treatment that often intimidates facial guests. Completely understandable when you don’t know exactly why it’s good for you and when you’ve been told that extractions hurt! Every facial does not feel the same for everyone, and should not feel the same. It’s healthy to get extractions because the debris in the pore is safely being removed making it less possible for your pores to become clogged and infected.
🎃Pumpkin Peel facial🎃
Pumpkin spice and everything nice. This warming. Brightening, skin smoothing facial treatment is an anti-inflammatory hydrating facial great for anyone who doesn’t have pumpkin allergies. This delicious facial lightens pigmentation, smooth’s fine lines and wrinkles and delivers a nice boost of vitamin A to help increase cellular turnover. And while you are in the treatment room this peel gives you a nice warm aroma which always puts me in the mood for an after spa pumpkin spice latte.
Customarily this is a soothing facial that can be tailored aromatically and include any treatment add-on’s. Around this time of year, it is common to turn a spa facial into a peppermint facial. Peppermint facials are calming and soothing and will aid in relief from acne discomfort and any type of inflammation of the skin. Peppermint also relaxes the mind and muscles increasing your sensation for a wonderful facial massage.
If you crave enviable skin, follow these top ten
1. 💦Hydration delivers so many benefits for the body and skin. It aids in circulation keeping healthy blood flow and oxygen for a healthy glowing complexion. Staying hydrated also helps your skin to get rid of toxins that cause dulling of the skin, acne, poor circulation and pigmentation. Hydration gives your skin more elasticity which helps to keep fine lines and wrinkles at bay. Hydration also helps the skin absorb the benefits of any skincare.
2. 🥗Balanced diet and nutrition Is just as important as staying hydrated. Because what you eat is carried through your bloodstream and has a direct effect on the skin I know its cliché to say you are what you eat, but it has been clinically proven time and time again. For our skin to function at its best we need vitamins so here are a few essentials:
3.🏃🏼♀️Exercise! Why even wait until the new year?! Every day marks a new year for someone or something. So, when the fiscal new year comes through just change up your routine! You’ll need to anyways after all the holiday feasts. Exercising helps to boost your metabolism which helps bust cellular turn over. Exercise makes you sweat! And when you sweat you are purging impurities from your pores that are stored by your fat cells and blood. Exercise increases blood flow and oxygen giving your skin a healthy glow.
4. 😴Rest is so important for health and beauty. It keeps dark circles under the eyes at bay. Your body produces more collagen when you sleep, and collagen helps to reduce wrinkles! Keeps your complexion bright and healthy. Also, for a boosted beauty rest, drink a glass of water before bed and use a serum and exfoliating night cream like “Freeze Frame” Nighttime Resurfacer Moisturizer by RUTZ skincare.
5.⛑Maintain a healthy and active skincare routine. Make sure that you are using performance products for your specific type of skin. A skincare consultation may help you find exactly what you need. Keep in mind that as the seasons change, so does your skin. If you are already practicing a great regiment at home, make sure you evaluate the products you are using, make sure the expiration date is still good, take note on how it still makes your skin feel, and if it’s doing what it’s supposed to do for your skin. Depending on the changes in your skin, lifestyle or weather, you may need more, or less hydration, more, or less exfoliation or a brand-new performance product to target whatever it is that you feel you need to work on.
6.💆🏽 Exfoliation is the key to a smooth and healthy texture to your skin! There are so many ways to exfoliate. Mechanically using scrubs and or an exfoliating tool, chemically using a cleanser, or moisturizer with salicylic, glycolic, lactic acids, Retin A, or enzymes. We need exfoliation because it removes the dead skin cells that make your skin look sallow or dull. Exfoliation benefits those with acne breakouts by removing debris that clogs the pores. Dry skin is benefited from exfoliation because by removing the dead flakey skin cells, the skin will become more receptive to hydration.
7.💆🏽Relieve stress! Stress is the number one cause of inflammation. It triggers acne, hives, breakouts, eczema, and leaves your face flushed and red, or dull and pale. Stress is just never good for anyone. People lose hair, lose sleep, lose patience, and lose time because of it. So please, anytime you feel stressed just take the time relax. Try some aromatherapy, a DIY calming facial mask, tea, a nap, a jog. Whatever it takes because living stress free is the key to your overall health.
8.☀️Protect yourself from the sun! We often think that because it’s cooler outside that the sun doesn’t affect our skin as much as it would during the warmer months. WRONG! Sure, our leisure outdoor activities may slow down a bit more but have you ever seen the sun slow down? Have you ever noticed the pollution in our environment seize? No. Our skin is directly affected by the ozone layer. Even if you were lucky enough to have been born with perfect genetics that everyone envies, your skin is effected by the ozone. Sun damage causes skin cancer, hyperpigmentation, lines and wrinkles, dehydration and slows your collagen production.
9.💆🏽Visit an esthetician. An esthetician is an educated licensed skincare professional. They exist to guide you to healthy skin, give you advice and recommendations and maintain your skin health. A monthly maintenance visit to a skin care spa is recommended for everyone, even if it’s just an assessment, or to get in some beauty essentials for your daily routine.
10.😀Taking us back to number 7! I know it sounds corny but, Smile more and frown less. Frowns create wrinkles and sagging. Also, you are likely frowning because you are experiencing a stressor. When we smile, we lift our muscles that cause sagging and we relax our 11’s/frown lines between our brows, AKA glabella to the professionals. But if all else fails and you do not know how to smile, or refuse to smile there is always the RBF. Resting Bitch Face was mastered and made popular by beauty and fashion icon Victoria Beckham. RBF is your safe card. It’s not frowning, not smiling, It’s not a regular face! It’s a face that says “I’m here to get shit done”.
It doesn’t matter if you are taking a road trip up north for some family time or flying down south to escape the cold weather, wherever you go, your skin will be there too. Here are a few travel essentials that will keep your skin hydrated, smooth and glowing! Perfect to be tucked away for any carry on.
Merle Norman’s Moisture Rich Facial Treatment 3oz (locate Merle Norman Studio for price)
Soothing and hydrating, you’ll love how it feels and smells. I usually apply this mid-flight, because that’s when I notice that I’m as dehydrated as the crypt keeper⚰️. I sanitize my hands, apply the mask, and after ten🕙 minutes I tissue it off. But if you don’t want to be seen with it on, of course you can just wait until you arrive at your destination, I understand completely. Just keep in mind that if you are being judged on your in-flight facial, it’s likely by someone who really does look like the crypt keeper at that point.
Perricone MD’s blue plasma cleansing treatment. 4oz $40
This no rinse cleanser also tones, hydrates and clarifies the skin. This is the most convenient facial cleanser to travel with because it does everything, including providing the skin with exfoliation. Although this only comes in a 4oz size option the contents can be put into a small travel container
RUTZ “Eye Conquered” antioxidant eye cream. .5oz $42-65
It comes in a brilliant pump jar. This eye cream instantly makes me feel more hydrated and less tired also helps to decrease sallowness under the eye.
Control Corrective’s “Botanical Soothing Cream SPF30” 2.5oz $49
Wow, this is the perfect lightweight SPF for all skin types especially sensitive skin.
This creamy hydrating SPF does not leave any streaks and goes on underneath foundation perfectly. This SPF also mixes well with most foundations. This theory has been satisfyingly tested.
ULIV’s Golden Chai Facial Souffle
With certified organic ingredients like turmeric, manuka honey, lavender, ginger oil, calendula and many more it’s nothing less than performance. This delicious hydrating facial soufflé is a natural soothing anti -inflammatory. While it’s not an SPF the added carrot seed oil will give the skin just a little bit of natural sun protection. You can put this on before your long trip, and use it every day underneath your SPF, alone, or as a night cream.
Clarins Teint SPF 15 in Everlasting Foundation 1.1oz $44
The last step to skincare is foundation. It gives the wonderful illusion of even skin. That is what we are striving for right?! This foundation has amazing coverage, and can be mixed in and used with your favorite SPF
COOLA makeup setting spray SPF 30 1.5oz
I know I said foundation was the las step of skincare, which is true especially considering that almost all foundations today have an SPF and other beneficial ingredients. But, this makeup setting spray with SPF 30 is AMAZING! I use it even when I’m not wearing a foundation, like when I go hiking or doing any kind of out-door sporting. You’ll love this staple because it smells naturally amazing and is super functional.
Legally Blonde hit theaters around the perfect time for me. I was in high school, a law and government magnet program to be exact. I really loved that program, and at the same time I was really enjoying "being allowed" to play in makeup and have my own fashion identity. But lets be honest, there has always been a stigma that brains 📚 & beauty 💄 don't go Hand in 🤚. Yet time and time ⌚️ again, beauty and brains prove that they go together like PB&J 🥜 🍞 🍇.
Elle Woods wasn't just putting blondes on the map for having courage, dignity, integrity, smarts and beauty. She was putting all women on the map 🗺 . A few very great messages I picked up from this film were accountability and kindness go a long way. Also there is only one person who will fight for what you believe in, and that person is yourself.
Fighting for what you believe in, and standing up for your self should not mean that you have to present 🎁 yourself as something you aren't just to be heard 👂 . But unfortunately compromising happiness is something that is still being forced on individuals today (hence why I work for myself!). 😔 This is so sad and frustrating! And I am 💯% sure that we have all had to do this.
Sometimes I grow discouraged about things. Like missed goals, setbacks, and other unfortunate things in life 😔 And i'm not saying that this movie fixes everything but, It's a pretty damn good start! Legally blonde is probably one of the funniest films I've ever seen and it motivates me instantly . It also helps that 🐶 puppies, and 🍫 chocolates are featured. Along with A👠 beautiful 👗 wardrobe and stunning ideas for hair and makeup.
Below is a youtube clip from my favorite scene in the film BTW, yes I quote this line often. This is shared from Imim Fasom's channel (thanks for making this available!). I just wanted to put something up really fast!
What are some of your favorite scenes? Where were you in your life when this movie debuted and how has this movie influenced you if at all? I'd really love ❤️ to hear back!
Tonight I'm gonna 🎊 🎉 celebrate Legally Blonde by watching the first and second films in a row! Im also going to indulge myself in a homemade mani, pedi, and face mask.
at the mask I'm going to do tonight is one I created earlier this week. It is gentle and safe for all skin types to use. If you have oily skin you can prepare this mask as is and let it sit on your face for the whole duration of the film if you like.
If you have dry skin you can prepare this mask as instructed, and add coconut 🌴 oil, 🥑 avocado oil, olive oil, or any skin safe oil of your preference. Feel free to email me, or message me in this thread for more ideas to customize your mask.
Strawberry Moon Mask
M🌘🌚ns and strawberries 🍓 happen to be two of my most favorite things! Every June we have a strawberry moon that represents the peak season for picking strawberries. Tonight, I’m going to celebrate by relaxing out on the deck with a home-made face mask, a flute of champagne, and maybe some Nick Drake playing in the background.
When I set out to Whole foods yesterday I had no idea that the strawberry mini moon was today! Anyways,It was on my shopping 🛒 list to pick up strawberries, young coconuts 🌴 , and avocado 🥑 . I guess you could say that I was feeling a bit tropical 🌴 🐠. You might be trying to figure out what a rambutan is right now though but I’ll get to that in a bit.
So, I had already planned on making a strawberry and some sort of exotic or tropical mask this month and It just so happened that I’d get around to it today. I don’t want to keep you too long so briefly I’ll explain the ingredients and their benefits.
🍓 Strawberries 🍓
This fruit, that’s right strawberries are a fruit not an actual berry and its loaded with vitamins C & E! I can’t help but keep a fresh bowl of these around when it starts to warm up.
This fruit hails from south east Asia, I hadn’t even heard of it until I went to wholefoods the other day! By the way, I think its their spotlight fruit or something like that. It looks red and prickly but it’s pretty soft. And if you’ve ever had a Lychee then you know what a rambutan tastes like. Sweet and floral.
Strawberry Moon Mask
How It’s Made
If you decide to use the oatmeal, which has moisturizing, soothing and firming property’s for the skin you should refine it first by putting it into the food processor or blender. Once you’ve done that, transfer the powdered oatmeal to a separate container and set aside.
Add your strawberries and Rambutan to the food processor or blender and blend until it resembles pudding. Now you can slowly add your oatmeal and honey if you wish. This mask smells so divine you can obviously do this mask at anytime these fruits are available to you, I just thought today would be cool to try it. And yes It’s 💯% safe to eat!
*Use only fresh and clean fruits 🍓
*Peeling the skin off the strawberries is recommended to help eliminate any possible bacteria on the fruit.
*use clean and sanitized utensils and appliances
*Do not even attempt to try this if you are allergic to any of the ingredients.
Strawberries and Rambutan
A lot of people are reserved about putting a sunscreen on their faces. Some of the reasons I hear are: "It will clog my pores" "it's too greasy" "it's too dry" "I don't like the white film it leaves" "it will break me out""it makes my makeup look bad" "I don't like putting too many things on my face". Trust me, I understand all of these concerns because I have gone through them. Control Corrective has hit the nail on the head with their SPF. There is a SPF for every skin type and condition. I promise you. Tried and true, Just take a look at all the press this amazing SPF is getting!
I am flabbergasted at how many people still don't use sunscreen! I'm so amazed that when I meet someone who does I rejoice outwardly and it catches them off guard. I then explain to them that I meet so many people who don't wear sunscreen, and they are just as surprised as I am.
Today I greeted a wonderful friend over coffee.
She is very active in the sun. She hikes, runs, bikes, goes to the gym and loves other out door activities. today she rode her bike over to the coffee shop and when we hugged I was so glad that she smelled of SPF.
As we sat and enjoyed our coffee, she shared with me a story. I will share in brief! Her mom was recently diagnosed with skin cancer. Thankfully it is treatable. Her mom is otherwise healthy, but as you know, the sun is the #1 factor in the development in skin cancer.
Prior to the diagnosis, they had both paid a visit to the dermatologist and were forewarned that someone in the room would develop skin cancer. The warning was kinda brushed off, following that visit to the dermatologist, SPF was worn, but not every day. Now, both lovey ladies wear SPF every single day and in addition to being able to sleep well at night. They have noticed some amazing changes in their skin.
Some of those changes were: less hyper pigmentation, even complexion, softer skin, and no flaking after out door activities.
I'm only sharing one experience today but everyone has an experience of their own. No matter what it is. I always encourage everyone to wear sun protection because it will preserve your skin, your main armor, your protector. So protect it and it will protect you!
