Nowadays everything seems to be CBD! And would have ever guessed cannabis would have such amazing health benefits for your skin also! I first heard about a cannabis facial from the lovely ladies at Clean Start in Miami where I came across Lex, the esthetician, who had been showing her amazing before and after photos from the CBD facial. My skin is mostly hormonal, meaning every few weeks I’ll tend to get a bit of a breakout, which will then go away once my hormones are back to normal. It just so happened I was going through this phase when I went in to see Lex, who gave me this CBD facial and let’s just say, I was glowing!
The whole experience was luxurious, relaxing and I felt like my skin was getting so many amazing benefits from the different treatments Lex did. Lex used a fresh batch of natural, vegan and organic products during my facial which had a combined 2,000mg of CBD. CBD is used in skincare to help rebalance your skin and has been known to help those with rosacea, eczema and hormonal acne. During my facial, I had everything from extractions, exfoliating mask, moisturizing mask, light therapy, and a facial massage. And once the facial was over I felt in such a state of relaxation and I could tell my skin was glowing from the inside out.
Overall I would say my experience from when I first walked in, to the moment I left was perfect. I felt like I was getting every possible benefit from my facial and not to mention my skin looks and feels better than ever!
In the last few years, I have noticed a frenzy over lash extensions, microblading, permanent lip tint, and lash lifts. I am someone who tries to keep fairly low maintenance, meaning a lash extension would not be a good choice for me, a week in I would be left with only a few straggler lashes and I would not be the type to go in for regular touch-ups. Which is why I decided to try a lash lift and tint. This uses your real lashes but applies a lift that can last around 20 days and a tint to make your lashes stand out more. I’ve always had light lashes and ones that grew straight out, so without an eyelash curler and some good mascara, they would be virtually invisible.
Today I was fortunate enough to get a lash lift and tint, and an unexpected brow tint, which I am absolutely in love with. The beautiful Karina from Wild Love Miami took amazing care of me and used all-natural products to assure my lashes would not receive any damage.
The process took around 30 minutes and was quite comfortable considering you had to keep your eyes closed.
Overall, I am so happy with the results, the process and the esthetician! This is a much more reasonable option for me to still enjoy the fake eyelash look, while keeping it natural and having minimal upkeep. Make sure to follow my instagram @aroonmelane to follow along! And Wild Love Miami @wildlovemiami.
Safe to say I’m in love with the results and recommended Karina, from Wild Love Miami, 10/10!
It seems as though people are always complaining about bruising easily, and no one ever likes the look of a gnarly purple and green spot glaring at them. So today I have brought you three amazing products to help your skin prevent bruises, as well as to diminish existing bruises.
1. First and foremost is my favorite holy grail product of all, Castor Oil! Not only is this
product amazing for getting rid of any existing bruises, but it also makes for a natural deep moisturizer and helps with any sore joints, muscles and even your digestion. If you have any existing bruises, just massage some Castor Oil onto the spot and within days it will had disappeared.
I also massage Castor Oil into my sore muscles and my stomach. It has great properties that absorb through your skin and help with digestion! I never skip out on my daily Castor Oil massages. 😛
2. Another product to help prevent bruises is Riboflavin vitamins or B2, which has amazing properties for helping with development of the skin. Just pop one of these vitamins everyday and you’ll notice a decrease in the amount of bumps and bruises your body collects.
3. Finally the last tip to prevent bruises, and probably the most strange way, is to eat the pith of an orange peel, or the white part inside the peel. The pith of an orange actually carries the most concentration of flavonoids in the fruit. It’s full of antioxidants and is one of the most nutritious parts of an orange. So next time you’re eating an orange, make sure to keep the peel and finish off the pith! Not only will it help your body to prevent bruising so easily, but the other benefits it has are amazing for your overall health!
