Snooki Approves of Sunlove

Self-proclaimed guidette, Snooki, does not step out the house without a bronzed complexion. Recently she’s been spotted promoting Sunlove’s self-tanners. It’s a spray tan you can give yourself at home. The formula is blended with natural ingredients that start working on your skin up to three hours after it’s been applied. The radiant glow will last on your skin for up to three days. Go as dark as you want by layering the mist on the body.Sunlove is designed for everyone in mind wanting a safe tan. 

You can see pictures of her on their website and she might even be filming a commercial for sunlove.  Snooki told allure magazine:

“I just heard about Sunlove not too long ago and then I tried it out. It doesn’t leave your face greasy, and there’s no bad smell to it like other spray tans. I never used spray tanners until this one because I usually just went tanning. But you know after the taxing, you don’t want to deal with that, and friggin’ cancer—so this is a great product to replace all the bad stuff of tanning.”

No word on whether she’ll stop using tanning beds altogether, but the tan still looks great.

Jergens Will Make You Glow

I’m all about the faux tan. A tanned complexion can be accomplished without the harmful UVA/UVB rays from the sun as well as tanning beds. Every time you tan and the skin darkens, it means that damage has been done to your skin. Extra precaution should be taken to avoid sunburns, because when you burn your skin is more vulnerable and sensitive to the rays. If you read Beauty vs. Health, it further explains how damaging tanning is.

There are so many other alternatives from spray tans, mousse, lotions, and gels. There’s an option for every body, tone, and skin type. Try something affordable at first if you’re not sure. Jergens has a natural glow collection. I’ve been using their Revitalizing Daily Body and Facial Moisturizer ($8.49 each). In just a day or two of using it your skin starts to get a healthy glow. Another one of their products you can try is the Foaming Daily Moisturizer (Also $8.49 and an Allure magazine favorite). It comes in the form of mousse and makes it so much easier to tell where you’ve applied it on the body or not for a streak free finish.

Eat Your Way To Healthy Skin

Surely you’ve heard the expression, “you are what you eat”. It might be hard to put the sweets down and not give into the greasy temptations, but think about your health. As good as it might taste it isn’t doing any good to your body. Being cautious of your intake today will save you from a breakout tomorrow.

Clinical nutritionist, Samantha Heller told WebMd, “The healthier the foods are that you consume, the better your skin will look.”

Heller goes on to explain that the foods you eat eventually become part of you. Knowing what to eat and what will benefit whatparts of your body is essential in living a healthy life. That being said, here are some of the foods you should keep around that will do your body some good:

Anything high in antioxidants and Vitamin A is great. It keeps your immune system strong and skin experts say that a daily intake of Vitamin A will do the skin wonders. Low-fat dairy products contain a good amount of Vitamin A. Try low-fat yogurt or any of these fruits:

  • Blackberries
  • Blueberries
  • Plums
  • Strawberries

Essential Fatty acids like the ones in canola oils and salmon will help keep your skin looking young, tight, and glowing. Also snacking whole grain breads, cereals and nuts like the following promotes stronger and healthier hair and nails (The protein from eggs is also good for your hair):

  • Walnuts
  • Cashews
  • Pecans
  • Almonds

When it comes to beverages green tea is a safe choice and an alternative to sodas and syrupy drinks. The tea contains anti-inflammatory properties and has proven to reduce the damage done from the sun’s harmful rays. Not only that, but it’s been tested to prevent and reduce skin cancer. While green tea is beneficial, water is the best way to stay hydrated. Drinking it flushes the toxins out of you and keeps your skin clear.

Start treating yourself to healthier skin. Incorporating these foods and making it a part of your lifestyle, not just a diet, will benefit your entire your body head to toe.

Stop Excessive Sweating

Sometimes you’re not involved in any physical activity what so ever, but for some reason your underarms are excessively sweating. If regular antiperspirant deodorant isn’t working there are other options to consider.

You can save up for Botox injections (which stop the sweating for up to 6 months) or you can something a little less expensive. DERMAdoctor offers a product from MED e TATE called, Hyperhidrosis Control Wipes. The wipes are supposed to be so strong that with one wipe you’re sweat free for a week. It retails for $48 and brings 30 packettes. The Hyperhidrosis Wipes are not just for underarms, but they can be used on other parts of the body that you experience excessive sweating like:

  • Palms of your hands
  • Feet
  • Soles
  • Cleavage
  • Face

Latest Trend: Vajazzling

If you haven’t read Jennifer Love Hewitt book, The Day I Shot Cupid: Hello, My Name Is Jennifer Love Hewitt and I’m a Love-aholic, then you obviously missed the chapter on how she vajazzles her vagina. While promoting her new book on countless talk shows, the subject of vajazzling always came up. Basically what it is, it’s decorating your vagina with crystals. The first time I heard about it, I thought it was a ridiculous idea. Now that it’s sunk in a little more, I kind of want to try it. For those of you in the NYC area, you’re in luck. Completely Bare Spa offers vajazzling as one of their services that they call completely bare with flair. They even use swarovski crystals on you. According to their spa the vajazzles will last up to five days.

Will you give vijazzling a try?

Get A Facial At Home

Skin care is important, but it doesn’t always have to cost you an arm and a leg. Feeling pampered and getting a facial can be done from the comfort of your home. Get a small towel that covers your face completely. Soak it in hot water and place the warm towel over your face for about five minutes. Using an exfoliator specifically for the face will help get rid of the dead skin. Doing so will give your face a healthy glow. Neutrogena has a couple daily facial scrubs that also help prevent breakouts. After exfoliating apply a mask that suits your skin’s needs. Sabon’s mud mask works like a vacuum. It’s based on mud and vanilla oils from the Dead Sea and sucks up all the dirt and oils from your face. It’s great for soothing combination and oily skin. If you have dry skin using it once every other week will be fine.

Give Origins Clear Improvement Mask a shot if you’re battle-ling major clogged pores. The mask has activated charcoal that works like a magnet while getting rid of the entire gunk that clogs your pores. It goes straight to work by clearing up everything that keeps your skin from looking its best. While the mud mask takes a few minutes to harden, the Clear Improvement mask instantly hardens in less than a minute. Both masks get the job done and will leave you with smoother skin.

Get Skin Like the Kardashians

Is there anything the Kardashian sisters haven’t done? Being the exotic beauties that they are, it’s no surprise that they are now spokeswomen for a beauty product. Khloe, Kim, and Kourtney are proudly representing PerfectSkin. This is a three step beauty line consisting of a cleanser with exfoliating pads, toner, and moisturizer. The sisters swear by it, and say it’s the only thing that’s worked for all three of them. The products are for the use of all skin types: dry, oily, sensitive, combination, and even skin prone to acne breakouts. PerfectSkin also has a hydrating face mask, and brightening eye cream.

As women who are constantly in the spotlight and juggling hectic schedules, the Kardashian sisters need a skin care system that’s simple, as it is effective while working for virtually all skin types.”

Dr. Ron DiSalvo, World-Renowned Scientific Researcher and Dermatological Expert

Dr. DiSalvo led the research, along other top scientists and dermatologists, to create the product they have now. He says that by using the three step regime for 30 days, your skin will look and feel different. The products are meant to repair damage and restore a healthy glow to all complexions, no matter what skin type. This newly released product doesn’t have many reviews yet, but if it’s able to keep the Kardashians’ skin glow-y through countless nights of make-up and constant spotlight stresses, then it shows promise.

Detox Your Body & Skin

Don’t underestimate the benefits of lemon. They’re high in vitamin C, which not only helps fight bacteria but also reduces the risk of developing cancer. It’s clear now why so many body cleanses include lemon as a main ingredient. Cleanses might not be for everyone, but you can still benefit from it in other ways.

Body: Squeeze a lemon into your water bottle. It flushes the toxins out of your body and helps with your digestive system.

Nails: Use it to bring your nails back to life. Have you ever noticed your nails looking a little stained or yellowish?  They might not be getting enough nutrients and it’s a clear indicator that you need to start getting more vitamins A and C. You don’t even need to go to the nail salon for this treatment. Stick your nails into two lemon halves for 5 minutes. It will instantly brighten your nails.

Skin: For acne; rub the lemon juice on the skin to help clear it up.

Glow Kardashian Style

Kardashian sisters have just added a new product to their belts. Reality shows, bebe clothing line, diet products, and skin care; how they find the time for it all who know. They are offering a product that promises a glowing sun kissed body like theirs. Kardashian Glamour Tan is available for purchase at Sephora stores and online. It’s a gel based self-tanner that can be used on both the face and body. The self-tanner also works as a moisturizer delivering vitamin D and antioxidants. Another pro is that the formula is stain free and comes in a clear gel. Kardashian sisters promise this is a streak free formula and they swear by it.

I’m all for self tanners and bronzers. They’re a great alternative to tanning beds and exposure from the sun’s harmful rays. As bad as either forms of tanning are, people continue to do so in hopes of achieving a glowing tan. I myself have been guilty of. Finding a bronzer that works for you can save your skin and health and keep you safe from skin cancer. Khloe herself has faced skin cancer three times before, but thankfully was able to defeat it. being as obsessed with bronzer as I am, I’d give any self-tanner a try at least once. Although Kardashian Glamour Tan retails for $34, it has gotten many positive reviews on Sephora’s website.
