The Star Brows Blog  Has Moved Please Visit this Link for the Post on the New Site. 

This time of year, it gets dark so early and has been so cold lately – even in California! I just want to snuggle up in my PJs and one of the afghans mom made me and read a book as soon as I get home from work.

But before “I in my cap settle down for a long winter’s nap,” I need to get my bedtime beauty rituals done.

You know the drill. My dad used to call it “wash, brush, and comb”! I wish it were that fast and easy, but I do love being a woman…in the beauty business. Still, as I’ve said before, “Faut souffrir pour être belle”:  One must suffer to be beautiful.

Here are my 4 bootylicious bodycare favorites;

1. De-Tox Bath Gel by Tu’el is a refreshing, stimulating eucalyptus-scented gel for bath and shower that tones, cleanses, and exfoliates skin tissue. It’s invigorating, fresh, and very “spa feeling”.

2. Hydrating  Body Tonic by Tu’el is a toning liquid that helps retain your body’s natural moisture and improves skin elasticity. It’s essential to capture and retain your own body’s natural moisture after a dehydrating hot shower or bath.

3. Hempz Body Lotion by Supre is enriched with 100% Pure Organic Hemp Seed Oil and blended with natural extracts to provide dramatic skin hydration and nourishment and help improve the health and condition of skin. Use this over Hydrating Body Tonic. Men and women like the smell too – choose from Pomegranate or Original.

4. Smooth by OPI is a deep-penetrating, alpha hydroxy acid treatment for the feet that softens calluses while you sleep.

Good bye dry winter skin!

See you at the spa!

Chamomile Cream by Tu’el is a soothing, healing day and night cream for dry reactive skin. Not artificial fragrances are used to scent Tu’el products, roman chamomile gives this cream a calming and soothing effect.

The Chamomile line of skincare products addresses dry skin: The characteristics of a “true dry skin type” have to do with genetic pore size. You may be water-dry but have plenty of oil.

Dry skin types have small pores with very few large pores that make up less than 1/3 of the face. It could appear flaky around the nose, cheeks, chin and forehead, or have large pores in the nose area.

This skin type can age early. It may be congested and look dehydrated. Dry skin can feel rough because of a buildup of dry skin.

In addition to being dry, the skin type Chamomile Cream addresses is reactive to skincare products and cosmetics. The reaction may be mild to severe and may include swelling, pain, burning, itching or welts. This skin type needs to be treated gently with calming and soothing products.

Intact, healthy skin is your body’s primary defense against infection – so keeping your skin in the best condition possible is really important. Healthy skin is coated in a layer of natural lipids, or fatty substances. This keeps your skin soft and supple. This is where Hy-Drate comes in, it contains sodium hylauronate which binds the moisture found naturally in the skin.

I recommend Hy-Drate to be worn like underwear, before your sunscreen or night cream.

There are a few tips for using moisturizers: 1.) Apply all moisturizers to moist (not wet) skin. 2.) Always apply the thinnest, lightest product first. Hy-Drate is a clear, light, serum-like substance – it ALWAYS goes down first (unless you use toner). Chamomile Cream is thicker so it would follow, and sunscreen last.
