A BARE ESCENTUALS’ SUMMER!


BARE MINERALS LUMINOUS DAILY DUO FOR DRY SKIN

I spent several weeks using Bare Mineral products to share with you my experience.

This is a 30-day cleanser and moisturizer that can be purchased in a kit. The cleanser is light and creamy without leaving any residue. It is not hard to wash off as some cleansers can be. The cleanser feels clean and fresh and the moisturizer cream is luscious and light. The clean and natural feeling stayed with me through out the day. Purely Nourishing Cream has 100% pure RareMinerals and ActiveSoil Complex that clinically is proven to deliver skin-renewing benefits. My skin was radiant and I was told several times how great my skin looked specifically during my Bare Escentuals/Bare Minerals two week experience. I continue to wear it and reap the benefits! It was not greasy as many creams can be with dry skin. Additionally the Nourishing Cream has a soothing feeling when applied.

Bare Minerals Flawless Definition Mascara is triumphant color, producing long and lean lashes. I am impressed and thrilled with this quality Mascara. My eyelashes look longer then ever! I used Bare Minerals Big and Bright Eyeliner to create a smoldering eye for night time and a sleek, soft look for day. The fantastic pencil comes with a sharpener and smudge end on the other side of the point. The fact that it is natural also means you are not up all night ruining your lashes trying to rub it off. With the gentle cleanser both the Mascara and Liner remove easily.

The Prime Time Brightening foundation primer allows for the sultry cheek bones to retain Bare Minerals colors and creates a glowing finish. Bare Minerals exclusive natural products create a look that is photo ready, day and night. I am passionate about i.d. bare minerals glimmer eye shadow colors.  Liberty, a unique blue color along with the pencil created a larger more dramatic eye in the evening. During the day, it highlighted my eyes, creating intensity to my already blue color. It blends beautifully with brown and other Bare Mineral shadow colors. They create it so that you can mix and match colors seamlessly.

Glee is a blush that brings out ones cheekbones and color organically. The bright look is fresh, vibrant and youthful.

Bare Minerals Lip Pencil is lighter than the Buxom Pout Plumping Lip color. Another favorite! First, always make sure that you use the pencil to create a fullness to the lip.  Color inside your lips with the pencil for lasting color. Use it very lightly on the tip of your upper and lower lips to create a flawless look. You do not want the pencil to show, only highlight the lip color. This Buxom Pout Lip color is wonderful and creates a beautiful natural pout. A friend actually asked if I had my teeth professionally bleached. I did not, it was the Bare Escentuals Buxom Lips that produced the sultry color and fullness to my mouth, creating a glistening white smile!  It also contains antioxidants that are infused with Vitamin A & E for soft, smooth lips.

This is important. As we go through our day, sipping coffee, water bottles and eating meals… we unknowingly are ingesting lipstick. This is why Paraben free and Organic products are so vital to our health. Why ingest chemicals when you do not have to? You have a choice and can wear beautiful rich, silky, lush colors that are pure and natural? Bare Minerals gives you that and more. Please remember this for your daughters, relatives, etc. Girls are wearing gloss, licking and ingesting lip gloss toxins at the age of two. Being beautiful can be healthy!

Last but not least are the Bare Mineral Brushes. The brushes gently apply the eye shadow, the blush and powders delicately and efficiently. Each brush is designed for its own purpose. The eye shadow brush provides a smooth eye that stays on for hours. It glides over the eyelid and in the creases specific to where you apply it. The blush brush showcases your cheekbones, contouring a flawless face like a professional. Their brushes and cosmetics blend together, showcasing your features naturally as the products themselves. The cleanser and creams match your specific, independent needs.

DENTAL INVASION…


I have shared with you the importance of using Paraben free toothpaste; now it is about more than chemical free toothpaste… Oh no, and oh yes!

Steady Health stated, “As your mouth has contact with numerous types of bacteria, it can develop into a breeding ground for all sorts of nasty germs.” If you take Probiotic’s this is still important information, and if you don’t, please let me know, as I will be writing  accurate information about why it is so valuable to take them and including a list of quality products. Now back to your mouth…

I have done research on dental plaque and how much serious damage it can have on ones body. Several studies have found that Heart disease risk and inflammatory disease are linked due to the neglect of oral hygiene. In addition, the concern is more than a cavity or two. Dr. Kowolik said that if you get a bacterial infection anywhere in the body, billions of neutrophils come flooding out of your bone marrow to defend against the intruder; the inflammatory response to dental plaque could help us identify individuals who are at greater risk for infections anywhere in the body.  This is including those affecting the heart, he said. Without good dental health, our bodies are at risk for bacterial infection; this creates a disadvantage to our immune systems’ ability to fight off such infections.

It is so simple to get up and floss, brush our teeth and get regular cleanings, yet it continues to be an on-going hurdle…  I speak for myself when I say I (too sadly) need the motivation after an exhausting day to be rigid with my dental health. The pillow calls my name louder than then floss does. Please heed this warning, though, and think not only of your gums, but your body. Getting infections from not brushing my teeth, enough is not a place I want to be! Heart Disease is the number one killer in women, so besides telling your kids to floss and brush, women please remember to take care of your fabulous selves!

Dental Care is expensive. However, did you know that many of the local colleges have excellent Dental schools and prices that are adjustable? UCLA, for example, has an excellent Dental school. Dr. Peter Moy, who is internationally known, is also an adjunct associate professor of oral and maxillofacial surgery in the Division of Diagnostic & Surgical Sciences at the UCLA School of Dentistry. He also serves as the director of the UCLA Dental Implant Center and the Straumann Surgical Dental Clinic.

If you do not live in Los Angeles, please check out your cities Dental College for quality care and lower prices.
