Painted Lady


Schools out for summer! Well, not really. I still have summer classes. But I’m sure as hell not letting that keep me from enjoying my summer. I’m heading out with my ladies tonight and I wanted my look to be as sizzling as the temperature outside. I hope you’re all enjoying your night as well! I am still loving the Vice Palette by Urban Decay, it’s absolutely perfect for summer! You can bet I’ll be showcasing it many times this summer. Here are the products that I used!

Favorite Skin Care Products


These are some of my favorite skin care products. I use them all pretty much on a daily basis. The only I don’t use daily is the Neutrogena Oil Eliminating Astringent (blue toner), because it is skin drying. It is recommended to use that about twice weekly and it does actually work wonders. Sometimes I’ll use it in the morning and apply a moisturizer afterwards or before I go to bed. The Neutrogena Pore Refining Toner is the best thing I’ve ever discovered! Is it really getting discontinued?. Seriously, gimme a break, lol! Every awesome thing I find is getting discontinued -___- it’s heartbreaking! But my skin is so much better from using this stuff. I rarely break out too, but I don’t know if it’s from using these products cause I’ve pretty much always had clear skin. BUT a monster always finds its way on my skin from time to time, lol. The St. Ives scrub does its job too. I use it when I’m in the shower and scrub all the way down my neck. It gets rid of blackhead and dead skin. It’s amazing how soft your skin feels after. Makes you think what the heck was on your skin to begin with…(ew, ew, ew!) I use the Olay Firming Cream EVERY single night!! I love that stuff!! My skin is so firm and I started using it about 3 months ago.. maybe?

That little teeny container has lasted me forever and a little of the product goes a long way. I’m down to probably the last use though. Next up is the Jergens Natural Glow Firming body lotion which makes my skin look so glowy… and tan, lol! I’m sort of already semi tan since I am from South America, but this just evens out my tone and gives me more of a tan look. It doesn’t make me look like I just sprayed on some fake tan or bronzer. I usually put it on after I shave my legs and let it dry before I get dressed. Lucky for me, I don’t have too shave too often since my hair grows slowwwww so I usually reapply three times a week after showers. I do a body scrub to sort of start all over again after I shave because the color can start to build up and you don’t wanna look all orange, girl. Lastly is the Ion Deep Repair Leave In Treatment for hair.. obviously, lol. I have to use it especially since I color my hair often thanks to having to retouch my red hair like 2-3 times a month, (see blog below for how I maintain my red hurrr). It’s worked wonders for my hair though. It says to apply to towel dried hair but I just let my hair sit in the towel for awhile and then just pump some in my hand and rub onto my hair while it’s still a bit damp. It smells SO good too! If I had to pick only two items from all of the ones mentioned, I’d probably go with the pore refining toner and the firming cream because I can definitely tell the difference after continuous use! What do you use?

8 Tips For Glowing Face


As we know, with the unlimited number of facial care products and techniques out there, it is hard to know what can be a true benefit for us in terms of caring for our delicate facial skin. Below is tips which may simplify facial skin care for us, guyz. Check it out:



1. Knowing our skin type is one of the most important facial skin care tips


This is important because not every skin care product suits everyone. In fact, all the skin care products specify the type of skin they cater too.


2. Drink a lot of water


This will not keep our skin moist but will help in overall upkeep of our health (and in turn our skin). It might seem a bit awkward to some, however, this is an important skin care tip.


3. Cleanse our skin regularly (1-2 times everyday)


This is a very effective skin care tip that helps in getting rid of the dirt and other harsh elements from our skin. Cleansing is especially important when we have been out of our house (and hence exposed to pollutants, dust etc). This skin care tip also advocates the use of lukewarm water for cleansing (hot and cold water, both, cause damage to our skin).


4. Be gentle, after all it’s our skin


Don’t scrub/exfoliate too hard or too often. Similarly, don’t apply too much or too many skin care products. This is a must-follow skin care tip.


5. Keep our skin moist at all times


This is one of the most important skin care tips. Don’t let our skin get dry. Dryness causes the outer layer of our skin to break, leading to a rough and unattractive appearance. Use moisturizers/ emollients. Moisturizers work best when applied while the skin is still damp.


6. Avoid the use of soap on our face


Soap should only be used from below the neck. A small but important skin care tip.


7. Use sunscreen to protect ourself from sun’s harmful UV radiations


We can use day-time moisturizers that have sunscreen built into them. Use them even when it’s cloudy. UV radiations are known to cause skin cancer, so follow this skin care tip without fail.


8. A bit of exercise and good sleep are essential too, not just for skin care but for our health as a whole


Lack of sleep can lead to formation of wrinkles below our eyes and lack of exercise can cause our skin to slack. Moreover, exercise and sleep also help in beating stress.
