Follow me to the Beach
As I am carefully packing for our trip up the PCH to our family’s Lincoln City, OR beach house, I always get the urge to turn it into a spa week. If it can fit in the car, it goes. Kevin says”,Wow, you brought the whole salon!” Well, not the whole salon… Sorry girls, next time. Masques, oils, makeup galore. It’s in my bag.
I have always been the fair-skinned girl no matter where we are, but our first stop in Santa Barbara requires some glow. Jane Iredale’s Moonglow Bronzer is my pick for adding a little color. It’s the perfect blend of shades and can be used as a shimmer on your collarbones or for eye shadow.
I love my haircolor and want to protect it from sun, chlorine, and saltwater while I’m away. Protect Leave-In Conditioner is formulated from wheat proteins and natural extracts to maintain the natural balance of the hair. A superb hair protector, it can also be used after swimming to safeguard the hair from damage caused by seawater, chlorine and sunlight. Protect Leave-In Conditioner adds strength to hair and can do minor repairs on the cuticle. Hair is left shiny and manageable. Verde Salon carries Organic Salon System’s full line of products.
When I get to our hotel room each night after a day spent shopping and sight-seeing, it’s fun to pull out my favorite beauty products and create a “spa” while on the road. I start with a deep conditioning treatment for my hair. Aqua Boost Reconstructor is an intense moisturising treatment formulated from a range of organic ingredients, aloe vera extract, wheat protein, vitamin B5 and natural sunflower seed extract to nourish your hair, leaving it soft and smooth.
Nerium AD is another product I won’t leave home without. My skin has never felt softer, my neck has definitely tightened up, and the redness in my cheeks is greatly reduced. I am excited to see the new Nerium AD Age-Defying Day Cream that will be available in September! It’s so great to have science and nature on the same page. This night cream can be an adjustment. It is applied to damp skin after cleansing and will slightly tighten the skin. No other product is used. This is my serum, my eye cream, and my moisturinzer in one.
I am crazy for beautiful, glass jars of beauty products. For some reason, this feels glamorous and elegant. Nailactan is one of those products and clients tell me they love it. Within a matter of days your nails are stronger and begin growing much faster. Each evening before bed, take the little spoon and dab the cream on the base of each nail and massage in. Mavala nailpolishes are permiable so the cream can actually penetrate the nail plate. Love it. And it doesn’t hurt that I just feel pretty doing it.
