    What are your current favorite must have beauty products?

    • I refuse to be without my zinc sunscreen and Vitamin C serum. Even on cloudy days, I have to have sunscreen. People actually laugh at me for religiously applying sunscreen, but I’m one of those darker skinned people who burn and worse still, develop uneven skin tone if I expose my skin to UV rays without protection.- and yes, experts maintain even…[Read more]

      • vitamin c is one of the best topical serums you can put on the face. I don’t blame you with that one. There is actually a debate about sunscreen though. I stopped using it several years ago and my skin actually started looking better.

        • I know, my Vitamin C serum is my beauty holygrail LOL But as far as sunscreen is concerned, it’s done wonders for my skin actually. When I discovered natural sunscreen and the hazards of chemical sunscreen, my skin progressively got better and better. I suppose these things work differently for different people. Regarding the ongoing debate, I…[Read more]

          • Yeah that’s true. I forgot about natural sunscreens. I think I use to use DDF it was really good, but I don’t think they make the low chemical one anymore. Obagi C serum that is a really good one. It costs a lot. What brand sunscreen do you use?

      • You can’t go wrong with sunscreen & vitamin C! Everyone should use sunscreen daily, no matter what the weather is! It protects our skin from premature aging, age spots, sunburn, & skin cancer! We should use 70 plus spf in the summer and 30 plus in the winter. Most people don’t use enough. Kiss My Face Sun Factor Face Factor is a good quality…[Read more]

        • I couldn’t have put it better myself Martisa, I agree with you on all you said. I use Obagi C Vitamin C serum and love it. There’s yet another one I’ve used in the past that I actually prefer but couldn’t afford as it’s very luxurious and pricey **sigh**. The name escapes me, but if I remember it, I’ll let you know….It’s got rave reviews too.…[Read more]

    Here is the great debate about beauty products natural verses the chemically processed. They both have there pros and cons. Natural products have great impact and more effective appearance on your skin but take a lot more time and I do me “ALOT” more time to see results. Chemically processed beauty products give fast results but if you don’t keep…[Read more]

    • Personally I opt for the more natural products!

      • right, right.

      • What are some of your favorite natural products? I love coconut oil! It has so many benefits!

        • I use aloe vera and limes & lemons on my skin often. Coconut oil seems like it has many beneficial qualities. I read a lot of blogs of people who mention this product for hair, skin etc. What do you use it for your?

          • I use it for everything! I use it as a deep conditioner for my hair, a moisturizer for my hair and skin, I even eat it for health benefits! It keeps my skin bright and clear! I enjoy using lemond also!

          • Coconut oil is amazing on the skin, this is true. The lemons and limes are a fruit acid it’s like lightening. You just want to be cautious not to over use. My favorite is to mix geranium oil with the coconut oil. It will keep your face from breaking out cause coco oil does that sometimes. The geranium is firming and a dyspeptic. Results are…[Read more]

        • Coconut Oil is amazing! Protection against hair loss and damage, skin moisturizer, sunscreen, fat loss, better brain function and a lot more benefits.

          Personally I only use it has a moisturizer for both my hair and skin but I’ve been looking for other uses like fat loss by ingestion. How do you go about eating it?

          • I would like to know this also. Very interesting.

            • I simply eat 3 spoonfuls of raw virgin coconut oil daily! I som etimes add it to my coffee and smoothies! Its great for weight loss, heart health, immune system, & it benefits the skin inside out!

    • If I could, I’d definitely stick to natural products ONLY. But they’re not always cheap 🙁 I do stick to natural sunscreen, though….loaded full of zinc. Ever since I started using it as opposed to chemical sunscreen, I’ve seen a marked improvement in the quality of my skin. I also swear by coconut oil, which is such a neat little multi tasker. I…[Read more]
