Now,I'm not going to pretend I'm NOT a huge fan of the

Water and Skin Facts:
Water prevents dehydration and sagging of the skin.

Water helps keep the skin clear, fresh, healthy and firm.

Skin cells are essentially floating in a pool of water, which plumps the skin.

How much water should we drink each day????

Experts say, we should drink about half our body weight in ounces each day. So, if you weigh 120lb, you need to drink 60oz. of water each day.

Following a healthy regime for both health and beauty and adding your daily personal consumption of water, will bring you radiant health and beauty!!!

Longer Lasting Pedicure!

Ahhhh, one of the best parts of summer is getting a great pedicure! Of course once you have this great set of polished toes, they MUST be shown off by wearing all those cute sandals and flip-flops that are just begging to have their turn out of the closet!!! Being a "California Girl" that has been tranplanted to Utah, one year I vowed not to wear closed toe shoes until Nov 1st....and I did it. Hopefully this too will be one of those years and we will be able to enjoy a long and lovely Indian Summer when the time comes!

Luckily I've found a fabulous product that help extend the life of my pedicure!!! And surprisingly, it can be found at Walmart!!!!
It is Sally Hansen's Insta-Dri Anti-Chip Top Coat!!!
What I love about this top coat is it gives my nails a shiny finish, I apply a new coat 2-3 times a week to extend the life of my manicures and pedicures! People always comment on if I just had my toes done!!! Love it and love the price!!!

A Few of My Favorite Summer Time Products!!! favorite time of the year. I love the sun...the beach...the pool and especially the no homework!!!! More time to spend with my family and the freedom to enjoy all the outdoor activities Utah has to offer.

Even though I'm a lover of the sun...I always advise the use of sunscreen!!! Especially on the face, chest and hands!!!

Here's a list of my top favorite products to use during the summer:
#1 Ayurmedic Sheer Tint 30 Sunscreen:
Reasons I love this sunscreen: It doesn't feel or smell like sunscreen. It has a tint that works with most skin tones. I apply it after moisturizing and I don't need to use any foundation. Only a light dusting of my favorite mineral make-up. My skin looks natural, it evens out my skin tone and most importantly, it protects my skin from (even more) premature aging due to UV light! If you have sensitive skin, it won't cause you to break out.
I recommend it to all my clients and once they try it, they are hooked!!! I even have my 14 and 16 year old daughters in the habit of using this sunscreen every morning. Someday they will thank me!!!

#2 Image Body Spa Facial Bronzing Creme
Just because I totally protect my face from the sun, it doesn't mean I don't want a healthy summer glow!
This product....I love gives my face a natural glow. It is the ONLY facial bronzing product that does not make my face break out, look orange or stink like all the other self-tanners on the market!!! Definitely a must have for summer!!!

#3 Image Balancing Lip Complex
Sometimes as we spend time in the sun, our lips get neglected and start to dry out and crack. The lip balancing complex is an ultra hydrating anti-aging polypeptide lip complex, which dramatically enhances the appearance of lip contours. Adding up to 40% more moisture, volume and reducing fine lines with repeat usage. Your lips will feel amazing and will be soooo plump and kissable!!! Get some for yourself and the one you love!
