4 Easy Ways to Keep Your Skin Hydrated During Dry Season + Giveaway!

The dry and cold days are upon us and usually, the first two things that get the impact is our health and our skin. Can we say, “yikes!”? Last season, about the same time, I was attacked with eczema, which I thought at first was some kind of skin allergy.

What You Need to Know About Essential Oils for Beauty, Chemical-Free Lifestyle and Your Overall Health and Wellness

and everything UNTIL on my wedding day. I was running around and was going up the stairs on the second floor of the venue and tripped and fell a few steps. (Palms on face!) Yeah, I cried and everyone surrounded me, hoping I was okay! Thankfully, I was. I knew for sure I was going to have some bruising. But my maid of honor always brings her favorite essential oils and swears by Purification from Young Living. She said she used it on her brother-in-law who supposedly got splintered walking on the grass and foot was in pain but upon rubbing essential oil on it, the pain immediately miraculously went away. So she put this on the possible areas where I could get bruising from my fall. Sure enough, I didn’t get bruising and I was totally fine the whole night!

So I finally got my hands on some Young Living Essential Oils (use member ID 11638072 if you would like to sign-up) because my husband was also suffering from sinus allergies and I wanted to find some natural remedies for him. I am not necessarily a big fan of prescription medicines knowing its long term effect on our body.

Get Brighter, More Radiant and Younger Looking Skin Through Photofacial or IPL

Have you ladies heard of photo facial? IPL? Intense Pulse Light? Maybe. Honestly, I have never heard of it until a couple of weeks ago.

If you’ve seen my How to Lose Stubborn Body Fat Effectively Through Cryolipolysis post, you know that I’ve recently visited Laser Girl Skin Care and Med Spa here in Houston. They offer a wide range of services from simple laser hair removal to non-invasive fat “removal” through cryolipolysis to different skin care treatments such as IPL or Intense Pulse Light, more commonly known as photo facial.

If you’re in the Houston area, I highly recommend Laser Girl Skin Care and Med Spa. The owner, Alyssa, is not only highly-skilled and knowledgeable as to what treatment is best for you, but she totally makes sure that you’re comfortable prior to getting any treatment and during any procedure. I realized that not all med spas are created equal! There are some that are too commercialized and then there’s Laser Girl Skin Care and Med Spa that makes you feel like you have a truly caring and highly skilled mom who’s treating your skin to make you look more beautiful!
