Using a Toner isn’t just another Unnecessary Step in your Skincare Routine

I used to think using a TONER in my skincare routine was unnecessary and I was likely to skip.

Here are 5 reasons why I have included a toner as a staple in my skincare routine:

  1.  To make sure there is no makeup or residue left over after double cleansing my face.  You would be surprised, but I do find some makeup on the cotton ball!
  2. To remove chemical additives from tap water.  I don’t wash my face in the morning.  I just splash with COLD water and then follow up with toner.
  3. To make sure my pores stay clean and open to prevent ingrown hairs
  4. To prepare my skin to enhance absorption of other skincare products such as a serum, facial oil, and/or moisturizer.
  5. To rebalance pH in my skin

Do you use a toner?

Why Cream Makeup is Amazing

Maskcara Highlights

Why cream based makeup?

When I first thought about using cream based makeup, I thought for sure it would sit in my wrinkles and only enhance my “mature skin.”  To my surprise the makeup made my skin look better than my previous makeup.  If you look at the ingredient lists on products, water is the main ingredient.  Naturally, your skin will drink up the water-based makeup, however, the side effect is leaving the top layer of skin to appear dry.  I have been using Maskcara Beauty for almost a year and haven’t thought about going back to my tinted moisturizers or BB creams.

Benefits of Creams:

  1.  Easy to use:  easy to put on a thin layer and build upon.  If you make a mistake it is so much easier to wipe off than powders.
  2.  Looks like a second skin: creams won’t change the texture or moisture of your actual skin giving you a natural glow.
  3. Can be touched up easily: easy to spot treat or update your look throughout the day into the night
  4. Works on all skin types 
  5. Gentle on your skin:  creams, in general, will be gentle on your skin.  Maskcara Beauty ingredients are paraben free, sulfate free, alcohol-free, and provide UV protection from Titanium Dioxide

This setting spray smells like a tropical vacation in a bottle with the coconut scent to it.  I started using this setting spray to create a dewy look to my makeup while providing SPF 30.  I soon found other uses for this gem and value by Maskcara Beauty.

8 Uses for Maskcara Beauty Setting Spray

  1.  Set your makeup (obviously, hence the name)
  2.  Turn your shadows into a liner- spray your makeup brush with the setting spray and dip into any of your eyeshadows.
  3.  Intensify pigments of your makeup- use as an eyeshadow primer or with your eyeshadows to bring out the pigment.  Spray your brushes with the setting spray.
  4. Oil control –use before putting on your makeup and then after putting on your makeup
  5. Protect from sun damage with SPF 30 – you can choose to get with SPF Stay Outside Setting Spray with SPF or without SPF Stay Out There Setting Spray
  6. Beach Waves- spray on wet or dry hair to add texture and a tousled beach wave look.
  7. Brightening and anti-aging: with Niacinamide and Vitamin B3
  8. Promotes wound healing: with Hyaluronic acid

Other setting sprays I found didn’t have SPF and were more expensive than Maskcara Beauty

Maskcara Beauty:  $29.00, 5 ounces and  SPF 30

Urban Decay:  $32.00, 4 ounces and No SPF

Too Faced:  $32.00, 4 ounces and No SPF

Get Focused

essential oils, get focused, natural healing, anxiety

Natural Alternative to Get Focused

GET FOCUSED

If concentrating isn’t coming naturally in your day to day stresses, the following tips might help you.

MAKE A PLAN

I am a paper list kind of girl.  I write out everything I want to get done big and small.  I try to do this the night before so I am ready to tackle my tasks first thing in the morning.  Next, prioritize the list and identify your top 3 tasks you want to get done.   Once you have identified your top 3, start focusing on the task in short periods of intense focus.  Your brain needs to be trained.  The more you focus the easier it becomes and you will be able to increase the time on tasks.  You may only start with 10 minutes but with time and a routine, concentration level will increase.  During this designated time you should eliminate checking emails and getting sucked into social media.  It is best to have designated times for emails and social media.  I am working on this for sure,  I check them too much throughout the day!

SLEEP

Nothing good can come out of being sleep deprived.  If I don’t get enough sleep, I tend to eat poorly the next day and lack motivation for many things including my to-do list and exercise.  Your body needs sleep to repair cells and rejuvenate.

STAY HYDRATED

So simple but yet so hard for to drink water throughout the day!  The human brain is made of approximately 85% water, therefore if you aren’t properly hydrated you will start to feel it.  Symptoms may include headaches, poor concentration, and short-term memory.  Therefore, if you aren’t staying hydrated your ability to focus on day to day tasks might become difficult.

EAT WELL

Berries and tomatoes are high in antioxidants and help maintain sufficient blood flow to the brain.  Nuts are high in vitamin B6, which directly affects our memory.  I have a handful of approximately 8 almonds first thing in the morning.  Eating good quality dark chocolate is linked to increased serotonin and endorphin levels which support a healthy brain.  As with berries and tomatoes, dark chocolate has the antioxidant properties.

Supplement with a Cognitive Supplement, benefits may include reducing mental fatigue and tiredness while increasing concentration.

AROMATHERAPY

Essential oils can be a wonderful support system to train your brain to focus.  Diffusing Aromatherapy Focus Blend,  an uplifting blend can give you a natural boost of energy. You could also try sipping on Organic Refreshing Tea to encourage concentration.  The tea contains licorice, an excellent energizer, and green tea, known to be refreshing and uplifting.  If you want aromatherapy on the go, the Remedies to Roll- Study is a pocket-sized aromatherapy blend in a roller ball.  This is an ideal pick me up that has a blend of clove, orange, and rosemary to support clarity and confidence to tackle the task at hand.  To use, you roll onto wrists or on temples.

What are some techniques to help you FOCUS?  I read numerous health benefits of practicing meditation and I am sure it would help with focus.  Apparently the more I say I don’t have time to learn and practice meditation the more I need it:)

Have a wonderful day and slay your day!

Beth

Wholetones: The Sound of Healing

sound healing, wholetones, music therapy, insomnia, alternative therapy

Wholetones Sound Healing

When you think of musically inclined individuals or music lovers, my name certainly wouldn’t be in the mix.  I actually enjoy the house to be quiet and I will rarely turn on the T.V. or radio. However; I do find sound therapy intriguing.  Sound therapy is the use of frequencies to help support the mind and body.  I purchased this  Wholetones Album on 7 CD’s + Book (Includes Instant Digital Access)  from Wholetones.  I have been using the discs to help me fall asleep.  It might be psychological, but I fall asleep probably within the first 5 minutes of listening to it.   The frequencies are relaxing and each song has a purpose or healing property. Composer Michael S. Tyrell shares his story  on his website.

This is taken from the Wholetones Website:

Simply by listening daily to this music you could…

1. Open up to receive God’s healing. This frequency has an amazing side-effect: defense mechanisms lower and feelings of unhealthy fear, guilt, and shame diminish… (SONG 1, 396Hz)”

2. Remove the recurring, negative cycles in your life like procrastination, addiction, and junk food…watch as sluggishness and lethargy disappear and productivity and creativity increase…enhance your digestion, ease stomach issues, balance your metabolism, and erase headaches and lower back pain…(SONG 2, 417Hz)

3. Discover the Master Key that precipitates all other frequencies. You’ll feel soothed by its multiple health benefits as you’re tenderly enveloped in peace. This is the very same frequency David used to soothe King Saul’s depression…(SONG 3, 444Hz )

4. Hear the most curious frequency of all… it has the power to relax you… transform your stress into peaceful bliss. Creating the ideal environment for your body to repair hormonal imbalances, ease muscle tension, and release troubles of circulation… (SONG 4, 528Hz)

5. Enjoy the fostering of peace and forgiveness in all your relationships. Also known to positively affect the endocrine system – particularly gall bladder and adrenal issues…(SONG 5, 639Hz)

6. Gain a keen awareness of your very own spirit in this powerful yet delicately performed miracle of healing. Experience deep spiritual and emotional healing while cleansing your immune system of common infections. Super-charge your circulatory system to support your healthy heart and blood flow…(SONG 6, 741Hz)

7. Revel in the frequency that celebrates the King of Kings. Purely spiritual – connect in the worship of God, His love for humankind, and His return to those who await Him…(SONG 7, 852Hz)

Music is the universal language for mankind.  I do believe music has benefits however; I am not endorsing miracles after listening to this.  I figure there isn’t any harm in listening and I rather enjoy the soothing frequencies.  In addition to listening while falling asleep, I listen to the frequencies while working.

Please let me know if you try Wholetones or other sound therapy.
