 Summer means showing more skin, and we want it smooth and hair-free, right?! But don’t go to the Spa and get a bikini or Brazilian wax unless you have a plan for after-care. Otherwise, you may end up miserable, with bumps and ingrown hairs – Ouch! Not pretty.

The Monthly Product Feature for August is the Post-Wax Body Care Kit which includes Tu’el Clear-It Blemish Control, Tu’el De-tox Bath Gel, and FREE Pumice Gloves. These products keep the skin exfoliated between waxing services, help prevent ingrown hair and leave the skin feeling soft and smooth.

If you’ve never had this service or would like a refresher course on how to get the best outcome, check out these two popular posts: Ladies: 10 Reasons Why Brazilian Waxing is Worth It and Post-Waxing Care for Brazilians and Bikinis.

If you’re new to Star Brows, you may not know about The Monthly Product Feature or Rewards yet. To put it simply, 10% of all your product purchases, all the time, go toward free Service Enhancements like Raindrop Therapy, Lash Tint, Chemical Peels, or Star Massage.

When a product is the Monthly Feature, however, you’ll get 20% back in Rewards.

This month’s featured products are: 2 oz. Clear-It Blemish Control $39 ($8 in Rewards) and 8 oz. De-Tox Bath Gel $24 ($5 in Rewards).

The Post-Wax Bodycare Kit includes both products: $63 ($13 Rewards) plus FREE nylon Pumice Gloves. Smooth summer skin guaranteed. 🙂

See you at the new spa!

Beautiful After 40

If you’re not over 40 yet, you will be someday, so listen up. 🙂

Let’s talk about what constitutes timeless beauty. (And you won’t hear the phrase “anti-aging” because I’m not – against aging, that is)!

Now I know American women are not known for their beauty, but I personally have known thousands of gorgeous women who hail from this land.

I’ve been in the beauty business all my life. I grew up in dance class (lots of mirrors), opened a performing arts studio in my 20s, did some modeling, sold cosmetics and skincare, ran a big salon/spa, and now I’m in a private studio-spa having the time of my life working with women to become more beautiful inside and out at age 56!

One of my most-read posts is  How Do French Women Stay So Beautiful. Since I’m writing this on the 4th of July though, let’s talk about how American women stay so beautiful.

Here is a link to a post called  The Most Beautiful American Women of All Time, in case you’d like to know about popular opinion.

And here’s my recipe for long-lasting beauty – not in order of importance and not just with regard to physical beauty:

  • Start self-care early in life. It’s much easier to develop and keep great habits than to try to undo bad ones like unprotected sunbathing, smoking, drinking, and drugs.
  • Exercise. Build “movement opportunities” into your lifestyle. Dance, walk the beach, bike-ride with your kids, explore nature with a friend, have a work-out date with your man.
  • Cultivate spirituality. Everyone needs hope, vision, a standard to live by, and a higher purpose to keep going.
  • Build community. Don’t be a lone ranger. You need love and support.
  • Drink water and eat right. “Yes mother.” You know the drill.
  • You are spirit, you have a soul, and you live in a body. If there is an order of importance for cultivating true beauty inside and out, this is it. Your soul is your personality, your emotions. Look inside, seek to heal, learn, and grow.
  • Get advice to stay fashionable. My daughters teach me about fashion all the time. Plug in to today’s look by reading magazines, working with beauty consultants (like me!), and finding darling clerks to work with when selecting new clothes or accessories.
  • Be confident. Be true to yourself, not just a follower. Blend personal style into the latest style. You might just set the next new fashion trend!
  • Ramp up personal care – especially after menopause. I used to hate my period, with all its bothersome side-effects – but now, I miss my hormones! They kept my skin hydrated, cushioned me from disease, balanced my mood, and provided a myriad of other benefits. Being a beautiful and healthy post-menopausal woman doesn’t happen naturally.
  • The skin is your largest organ – keep it healthy. Regular cleansing, exfoliation, moisturizing, and sun protection habits become more important with each advancing year. Make intelligent skincare a priority. I’m here to help!
  • Put yourself together before you leave the house. You feel better when you look good! 
  • Be nice. There is nothing more unattractive than a gossipy (oops), demanding (oops again), mean-spirited woman. You’re not perfect (neither am I), but know this: A Virtuous Woman is a woman of worth and beauty.
  • Get plenty of rest,  laugh often and have fun regularly!

See you at the new spa!

Over-plucked, thinning, or misshapen eyebrows? Or do you just want to keep the great brows you have?

This month’s product feature is Brow Boost for brows and lashes! Check this out:  Laura Spencer dishes about Billion Dollar Brows’ Brow Boost with Rachael Ray on YouTube.

This deep conditioning treatment is designed to help strengthen and thicken brows and lashes in 30 days – naturally.

Brow Boost is dermatologist tested, prostaglandin free, and safe for all skin types. I love it’s affordable, reasonable price too – $20.

I was recently published in the national magazine Skin Deep by Associated Skincare Professionals! The piece is in the July issue on page 24. I wrote an article called: Succeed Big By Thinking Small “How to develop your market niche.” It’s about small business marketing and included examples of a few of my favorite niche companies. Billion Dollar Brows by Natalie and Bob Plain was one of the stories I spotlighted. They in turn, gave me a discount on product – which I extend to you, by way of Star Brows’ Rewards program. 🙂

Here are the Facts About Brow Boost. Check out the full line of Billion Dollar Brows products at Star Brows!

If you’re new to Star Brows, you may not know about The Product Feature or Rewards yet. To put it simply, 10% of all your product purchases, all the time, go toward free Service Enhancements, like Raindrop Therapy, Deep Muscle Work, Lash Tint, Chemical Peels, or Star Massage.

When a product is the Monthly Feature, however, you’ll get 20% back in Rewards! This month’s feature, Brow Boost, is $20. That means $4 toward a service Enhancement!

See you soon at the new spa!
