Welcome to My Humble Beauty, Skin Care, Hair Fun, Do it Yourself and More Blog...

Thank you so much for making the effort to follow me from my former blog to this one. I had three years invested in my former blog, but it was hacked.

Update: As of 2/21/11 my YouTube channel was hacked and hundreds of videos removed with a hate video with slurs replaced. YouTube is working with me to have this removed. I do not understand how hackers cannot be tracked down and why Google/YouTube do not prosecute such people. I am sure there is a way of finding at least a percentage. Thousands of YouTubers are now getting hacked. Thank you all so much for not leaving me on YouTube and knowing I would never post such a message. I will continue to post videos and I believe that all videos will be restored. Thank you again. I could not continue doing this without your kind comments and support.

Regarding my blog, I look forward to when everyone can find me again and I get my pictures back up. I am not so great with HTML, but I am working on the beauty of the actual blog. I hope you will enjoy it and if you have any requests, please let me know. I also hope you find my youtube channel that is linked below in several places and hope you will subscribe. You are all the reasons I keep doing what I do as it takes a very long time to make videos and blog entries, while building your site. However, I love it as I hope it brings a little help to just one person. I learn from others each and every day. Thank you EVERYONE!!!

Homemade Lemon Sugar Lip Scrub I Use and Hayden Panettiere Bronze Celebrity Video Tutorial

 I just want to share one of my quick recipes for lip and body scrub that I have been making at home. I have some that have chocolate, brown sugar, etc., but when my lips are in a super duper need for a scrub and my body is really needing to be exfoliated to feel really nice in the winter to absorb the lotion. Oh, I am also thinking about starting self tanning within the next week just to get a bit of a glow. However, I have noticed that my lips were getting dry for some reason after switching from the lip balm Carmex to the tube Carmex...I feel so goopy with the tube, but loving my Lime Balm, Strawberry Balm and I finally found the Vanilla Balm I misplaced. Mary Kay also has an amazing mask and balm for weekly treatments. I will talk about those at another time. Here is the link if you wish to check it out...I use it weekly. Check out the remainder of this post...I promise you will love it.

So, here is a very very fast way to exfoliate. No need for the lemon if you don't want it...sometimes I only use the sugar and the olive oil. It works just as well...the lemon is great for smell, but when in need just scrub those lips and those body parts for less money. I love great exfoliaters and have some amazing exfoliating products to show you, but it is such a bummer to buy what I think is going to really exfoliate me when it is just a body wash with a few tiny beads in there. Beautisol has a great facial exfoliation tube. Until I get back to work, I have been doing the following:

P.S. If you are interested in some of my other recipes just let me know. They are fun to make sometimes as I make them in small amounts for my lips and large amounts if I am going to use on my body. One includes coffee...not so fun, but it works well and makes a great exfoliation product for a self tanning starter. If you don't exfoliate self tanner will be a blotchy mess...lol.

O.K. Here it is and super easy.

For a small amount to just have enough for my lips I just "eye" the amounts:

  • Scoop out some of this amazing coconut oil...I used to travel to a Filipino store about an hour away to find mine. I was so happy to see that Coastal Scents and I have a secret DIY use where I use this for a dental use also...Coconut Oil is just amazing for everything. I love it for my body period and is a great base for my sugar scrub. I never measure. I just add the oil to the sugar after pouring the amount of sugar I want to use. For instance, is this for lips only this round or will I be taking it in the shower. Warning: Just rinse the shower with some hot water afterward so nobody slips in the shower when using oils. My Mom fell as a child when using Avon bath oil. I still love it, but it can be dangerous. Let me know how it goes for you. I am going to do a batch for my lips on camera and a batch for the body on camera. I have many recipes using different things, but this is the quickie version that works like a charm. I feel so soft afterward if I use it in the shower and my lips are so soft and ready for that matte lipstick.
Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoy the Hayden Bronze Tutorial on YouTube! Please follow me on Google + or sign up for my email updates. I promise to never ever sell your email address or send you more than 4-5 emails a weeks. Generally about three, but it could be 4-5 as you guys are truly inspiring me to make more videos and blog more since those meanies hacked my account 250+ videos from my YouTube account and my four year long blog last year just after I had paid for a nice, professional site. It wasn't a lot, but it was something I could afford. I have no idea how to do all of this HTML, so please be patient with me as I learn. I want to make it more user friendly and look forward to making it pretty. I would love to know how to make the Facebook, Twitter and YouTube Icons for instance. I need an HTML for dummies book for my HTML for dummies book :)

Have a great Wednesday,
