Green Beauty & Natural Skin Care Tips
Summer's here and I aint been on the court yet. So, Ill hustle to the mall to get me a short set. But, before you get that short set (or romper) ask yourself this question, "Is my skin ready?" If yes, great! Keep up the good work. If no, keep reading to find the steps to get and keep your skin sexy & summer ready.
The first step in getting your skin summer ready is to find a moisturizing cleanser that will not strip away your skin's natural oils while ridding your skin of dirt and grime. You will need to rid your skin of the dirt and grime because you cannot effectively treat dirty skin. Your treatment will only get absorbed by that icky layer of dirt and none of it will actually reach your skin resulting in an #epicfail.
The second step is to gently exfoliate your skin using a gentle exfoliant such as Apres Sun Body Polish. It is made without any harsh abrasives because you want to gently exfoliate the top layer of your skin to rid it of any skin dulling dead skin cells. You almost MUST rid your body of its dead skin because when the sun sun hits your it immediately begins tanning your top skin layer. If the top skin layer is already dry and it will flake off and leave you with an uneven, blotchy tan. #eeew
The third step is to rub in a good natural oil such as Apres Sun Body Oil you dont want your new younger layer of skin to dry out and age prematurely. So, you must give it the nourishment that it needs because the thirst really is real, especially in the summer time.
The fourth step is to apply sunscreen. No matter what, never forego your sunscreen.
The last and most important step is to lay back and enjoy yourself.
If you follow these steps correctly you be able to turn yourself into a beautiful bronzed babe all summer.
Spring is here! But I’ll bet you didn’t take care of your skin last winter. You didn’t, did you? That’s okay, I’m not going to judge you (much). But, what I am going to do is give you a few tips on how to get your skin ready for those short, skin showing, skirts and dresses that I know you have been dying to wear, ever since the thermometer dipped below 60 degrees Fahrenheit, last year.
Soak In The Tub
It’s important to soak in the tub because soaking softens the layers of dead skin.
Now that you have softened all those layers of dead skin, it’s time to slough them off. The best way to do that is by using:
- A Pumice Stone
A pumice stone is used primarily for feet because it’s much too hardcore for the skin on the other parts of your body.
- A Loofah
Now, a loofah, on the other hand, is perfect for the skin on the other parts of your body. Just add a little soap to it and scrub away those dead, lackluster, skin cells.
Just take a handful of our sugar scrub, girl.
This is optional. But, if you want to have the ultimate in healthy, glowing skin, use a light oil as a moisturize. But, you wont need to if you use our body exfoliants.
Get out there and show off your softer, glowing skin. You deserve the attention you’re gonna get.

Well keep reading & we will fill you in on how to keep your skin luminous & silky all winter long.
Soak in the tub
Soaking in the tub will soften any dry, dead skin cells, allowing them to be able to be easily buffed away. You should also add skin conditioning baths soaks such as, the Moon Luv Black Lava Salt Bath Soak. Its warm vanilla scent will calm you and put you in the seasonal mood as its enzymes work to soften & exfoliate your skin.
To prevent your skin from losing skin firming lipids and anti aging moisture, lock them in with a good body creme. You should use a body cream beacuse of all of the friction from all of the layers of clothing you wear while trying to keep your body warm. To help keep your skin moisturized, we recommend, Moon Luv Vanilla Black Rice Body Polish that serves as both, body exfoliant & body moisturizer. Remember: Its important to use a moisturizer in the winter time because the weather is usually harsher & drier in the winter months and can wreak havoc on unprotected skin.
Get close to someone.
Give someone a hug or a kiss & spread some good cheer.
