Sunny summer days making your hair feel brassy and dry? It’s ok, you’re not alone. Salt water, chlorine and sun take its toll on everyone’s hair, but blondes can feel even more taxed when your color starts to turn yellow.
To combat those undesirable hues, I recommend Davines Alchemic Shampoo and Conditioner formulated for blonde and silver hair. The strong purple pigments will neutralize brassy tones and restore vibrancy in between color services. Start with using the shampoo and conditioner once a week, increasing frequency as necessary. If your hair is very porous, you may find that the conditioner, paired with your favorite color conserving shampoo, may be enough to do the trick! Try leaving the conditioner on for 3 to 5 minutes for the full benefits.
Follow with a moisturizing leave-in (like Davines Oi All In One Milk) to tame, smooth and lock in shine.
As a busy working mom of 2 in the skin care industry, it’s important for me to feel good and look refreshed, hydrated, and youthful. Repeatedly, I hear moms say they don’t have time to take care of their skin. They don’t even have time to wash their face. Yet they want to age gracefully and have youthful skin. It’s time to take the time.
I have a few simple steps that are quick and easy to do. I’ve kept it simple so you will keep on taking the time to care for your skin.
Because it is important.
Because you are worth it.
- Cleansing- Cellcosmet gentle cream cleanser.
It has jojoba oil and rose flower water. I find it to be a nice way to remove eye make-up and over all cleanse without stripping you of your natural oils.
- Always double cleanse.
- Toner- p50 pigm 400.
Keeps skin balanced, even toned. Helps lighten those skin spots most mamas relate to and preps the skin for your next product.
- Eye cream – Cellcosmet cellular eye contour cream.
I love this to help with dark circles and fine lines. *Use very little it goes along way.
- Over the entire face – Cellcosmet ultra vital.
It’s light and over-all hydrating without feeling greasy.
- Daily face protectant.
I have been liking Jan Marini, antioxidants, broad spectrum, SPF 33.
- A little bonus, new to me and a favorite, Vintner’s Daughter active-botanical serum. It helps to reduce signs of aging, strengthens collagen, and delivers oxygen to the cells to help protect the skin. I’ll use this a few times a week, especially if I’m outdoors that day.
I hope this helps the mamas in the world. The truth is, at this point in my life, I would rather get compliments on my skin than on a new pair shoes.

Are you happy with your brow shape? If not? Are you neurotic about your brows and tweezing away hairs that look astray? Well STOP! Chances are you’re over tweezing! Less is more when it comes to grooming and growing brows.
Understanding your brow shape is hard if you haven’t been told by a licensed professional what shape frames your eyes. The guidance is a crucial part because you are used to seeing your brows every day and a professional can tell you where you need work. I used to think I’d achieve the look I wanted by continually tweezing any hair that looked out of place. I also never knew that kitchen scissors and hair scissors where any different (when trimming eyebrows), so let’s just say I’ve had a few mishaps. First step is the hardest:
1. Let it grow (hide your tweezers)…feel free to use an eyebrow pencil to fill in uneven spots during this process (see number 4)
2. If they won’t grow, use RevitaBrow. Incredible effective eyebrow serum that starts working in three weeks.
3. Go to a licensed professional who specializes in brows to help guide you in your shape and growth
4. Find a brow pencil that looks natural to help guide shape and growth and to fill in bald spots. My personal favorite pencil is Chantecaille retractable pencil because it offers natural shades and has a comb on the opposite end. Make sure you don’t go darker than your brows.
5. Tinting your brows makes them look fuller. I’m addicted! I tint my brows every three weeks. Even if you are tinting the color of your natural brow, you’d be surprised the number of little blonde hairs around it the tint can grab to achieve a thicker look. Tinting is a must!
6. Make sure you schedule appts 3-4 weeks apart to keep up with the grooming process. And don’t touch in between or you may fall back on old habits.
