The lymphatic system is an intricate network of tiny vessels and nodes that help to detoxify your body of wastes. It cleans out the interstitial fluid & dumps the waste in your bloodstream for removal. Nothing pumps the lymph, so it moves very slowly in one direction. This is why a lymphatic massage is so beneficial. The more gentle the better, I was taught that your fingers should press down no heavier than the weight of a nickel on the skin while performing a “traditional” lymphatic drainage massage. .
Skin brushing, baths with lymph moving herbs & teas are all really great for helping to move lymph along. Calendula is one of my favorite lymph moving herbs that I use in my massage oil. A wonderful soothing herb, but one that improves lymph flow and detoxification. Other lymph moving herbs like I like to work with in my practice are burdock root, chickweed and red clover. Have you ever tried giving yourself a gentle lymph massage ? It helps with skin related issues such as acne , rashes, & inflammation. 📷: lornastell .
Makeup is not a tool meant to make an ugly thing beautiful, It is meant only to magnify the beauty that already exist!
Here’s my journey🤗 My first love was doing makeup! I started off with dolling up my friends for special occasions. Eventually, I enrolled myself in Beauty School to become a licensed professional. Straight out of school I started working for M.A.C Cosmetics and had the pleasure of working with all sexes, all races, all ages💕. During this time I began to live a more non toxic lifestyle. While it was easy to swap for organic foods🙈 I struggled with cleaning up my makeup and skincare routine . My skin was begging for a break... I was covering up my face with full coverage liquid foundation + full coverage powder. It got to the point where I had to just let my skin breathe for once its life. At this point 😏 I began to follow the no makeup movement! It was uncomfortable being in my own skin but little by little I started to see the acne clear up🙃along with stepping up my self care game. •
This was when my Clean Beauty journey really began👩🏽💻 I jumped on the computer and started researching all the ingredients of the products in my makeup/skincare bag. I was in utter shock. I was absorbing toxic chemicals that played into skin sensitives, acne and hormonal imbalances. It didn’t stop with me🙈 I had to analyze what I was putting on my precious son. Women are usually the ones doing the shopping. We have have buying power and we make the decisions as to what our families use. I knew it all had to start with me!
Fast fwd to present day 🙌🏽I never would’ve thought my journey would led to me opening up my own Beauty Studio. Here 🤗 I get to help women with connecting to their bodies again. Our skin is our largest organ and it’s always communicating to us what’s going on beneath the surface. I can help by translating your skins individual needs. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Ravie de mon petit sérum Live Botanical 🌿Sa formulation à base d'acide hyaluronique, d'aloe vera et thé vert hydrate la peau en profondeur tout en l'apaisant en cas d'inflammations. Je l'utilise chaque matin en première étape de ma routine soins (sa texture gel pénètre très rapidement) ou mélangée à mon huile visage Mon prochain achat dans cette marque sera le Luna glowing mask je pense 😊 #greenbeauty

Part of our self love journey consists on working on yourself constantly to see the sunny side of things and that’s great , But we also tend to forget to take a break, take yourself on instant getaway, pamper yourself for a day, celebrate how far you come, even if it means taking a 5 minute breather where you meditate or imagine yourself on a all inclusive beach holiday... Trust us your SELF will value it, and we can validate at the end of this experience you will be screaming @stessentials fave mantra “We Glow Too!! “
Rose, lavender, vanilla.... there are so many beautiful scents given to us by nature. What’s your signiture favorite?

🧚♀️Ultimamente gli illuminanti viso sono sempre più protagonisti del makeup.
Ne sono usciti tantissimi: naturali, colorati, vistosi...uno per ogni esigenza, insomma. Perché il viso luminoso è ormai un vero trend.
Couleur caramel, quindi, ha lanciato la linea Sculpt & Glow. Una linea fatta di matitoni-duo per il countouring; palette complete per definire i volumi e illuminare i punti giusti, etc... 🌸Tra questi prodotti c'è anche questo TOUCHE MAGICHE - ILLUMINANTE IN CREMA.
Packaging classico -quello dei correttori per intenderci - facile da infilare in borsa, all'occorrenza. 🦄Questo illuminante è chiaro, con una sorta di leggerissima satinatura rosa-pesca, che purtroppo si nota poco in foto.
Tendenzialmente mi sembra FREDDINO e adatto alle carnagioni più CHIARE.
È un prodotto DELICATO, non vistoso. La texture in crema,poi, lo rende adatto alle pelli secche e all'utilizzo in inverno.
È sicuramente meno intenso di molti altri illuminanti usciti ultimamente, ma ottimo per coloro che vogliono un effetto più tenue, magari per il giorno o per le giornate in ufficio.
La texture in crema, inoltre, vi permette di poterlo ritoccare anche in giro, semplicemente usando le dita. 🌷È un prodotto carino con un costo leggermente superiore alla media (19.90). ⚘Lo consiglio a pelli mature e disidratate, a chi ama il makeup nude e a chi, magari, va di fretta e vuole qualcosa da avere in borsetta, se necessario.
Non lo consiglio invece a chi ama illuminanti particolari, con effetti cromatici, super perlescenti o glitterati, ad effetto bagnato...o in generale molto intensi.
Insomma se volete provare l'effetto strobing ,ma senza dare troppo nell'occhio, potreste farci un pensierino.😉 E voi quale tipo di illuminante preferite: discreto o ad effetto?! Se vi va, scrivete qui sotto il vostro illuminante preferito. 😘😘 #tealandviolet#coulercaramel#couleurcaramelitalia#couleurcaramelofficiel#greenbeauty#greenbeautyblogger#organicmakeup#makeupaddicted#bioreview#bioblogger#biorecensioni#makeupbio#lifestyle

Gentle overnight treatment of a pastel secondary color that uses fruit acids to resurface your skin whilst still moisturizing it - what product am I talking about?
@herbivorebotanicals Moon Fruit Superfruit Night Treatment 🍇
This darling from Herbivore was super unique to me. It has the thick, buttery texture of a heavy moisturizer, but it spreads out easily and doesn't feel greasy on the skin. This will give a very gentle exfoliation that, over time, will even skin tone and texture. It's never broken me out. It also works very well in tandem with their Lapis Oil. If you're acne prone but have really sensitive skin and don't want anything intense, this is a great option.
@glowrecipe Avocado Melt Sleeping Mask 🥑
This is newer to my collection, and I've definitely been enjoying it. I think my skin looks refreshed, brighter, and more hydrated the morning after use. Be warned though: avocado oil can cause breakouts. My skin has been changing, so it's less breakout prone and I haven't noticed any issues with this, but that may be because I'm only using it about once a week. If you're not acne-prone, this would also be a great buy (and it's so cute!). I'd say the main difference between the two is that this is a mask, whereas the Moon Fruit treatment is more of a cream that can be used nightly.
