The Expert Guide to the Perfect Fake Tan

Try these fake tanning tips from Andrew Parker.So, you want to look more like Beyoncé than Cruella De Vil? Well, you are in luck as we reveal this fantastic free expert guide for the perfect home fake baking experience:

Before you start the fake tanning application process, find the Aerosol Airbrush that works best for you – try it on your breast as an experiment (as you hopefully won’t be revealing those to too many people, right girls?), so that you can see how the color comes up.

Once you have chosen one to use on your whole body, get in the shower and make sure you exfoliate, using a loofah or a high quality body scrub to remove excess skin and give it a smooth feel. This will therefore make the color go on much smoother and much more naturally.


Dry your skin thoroughly afterwards and decide where you are going to apply the tanner. You might want to apply some moisturizer to areas where the skin is a bit tougher than the rest of your body, like knees and elbows. This skin can look funny when tanning cream is applied so the moisturizer should give you a more even look.

Wearing rubber gloves makes the application smoother and also protects your hands from staining. Don’t overdo it on areas like knees and elbows, and when you apply it to your face, watch you don’t overdo your neck in comparison. If you want cream applied to your back you will need assistance. Sit on an old towel in a room where you have some privacy so that you are not moving around a lot. A good time of the day to apply self tanning lotion is before you go to bed, so that you don’t stain your clothes, but remember to put old towels on the sheets so that you don’t stain them either.

Sometime it helps to start from your feet and work up, as this way you don’t get lines and streaks on your upper body when you bend over – clever expert tip there, girls! Also try to apply the cream in even, circular motions as best you can.

Once you have applied it, you should wash your hands immediately to stop staining. Wash your nails, cuticles and in between your fingers, as cream tends to gather here. You have to let the tanning cream dry for at least half an hour, so try and stay naked with a good magazine or you will stain your clothes and cause amateur patches to develop on your skin.

Girls, you’ll have all the boys like putty in your hands! Just remember to take those grotty rubber gloves off first.

Product Review of Mediterranean Olive Almond & Sage WonderBalm by Boots

Move over, Vaseline! Mediterranean Olive Almond & Sage WonderBalm by Boots is a sweet treat for rough, dry skin and its fragrance can’t be beat. I actually can’t stop myself from sniffing this little jar of wonder. If you would like a truly tantalizing product to help treat dry, rough, or patchy skin, Mediterranean Olive Almond & Sage WonderBalm by Boots is a sure winner to consider.

Like most people, I get the occasional dry elbows and dry knees that can always benefit from a little extra moisture. I always slather on lotion, often Bath & Body Works brand or something comparable. (I also enjoy Palmer’s Cocoa Butter and Olive Butter products.) While I love the lotions and find it’s hard to go wrong with them, the moisturizing effects don’t always last as long as you’d hope. That’s part of what I love about Mediterranean Olive Almond & Sage WonderBalm by Boots… hours later and my skin is still soft and smooth.

The fragrance of this wonderful emollient is definitely my favorite feature, though. The scent is uplifting, fresh, and clean. Mediterranean Olive Almond & Sage WonderBalm by Boots reminds me of aloe and honeysuckle, but in fact, it actually contains softening olive oil, nourishing almond oil, and fragrant sage oil, per its name. Other key ingredients include Petrolatum, Grape seed oil, Cocoa seed butter, and Beeswax.

This product contains organic extracts and healthful ingredients for a natural moisturizing experience. I am not familiar with a few of the ingredients, so I can’t say if it is 100% natural and organic (it does contain “fragrance”). Despite this slight level of uncertainty, I am not concerned one bit. I absolutely adore this product and plan to continue using it for a long time to rejuvenate the rough areas on my knees, ankles, and elbows.

Product provided free to writer for reviewBoots’ Mediterranean Olive Almond & Sage WonderBalm is available on Amazon.com for $8.99 plus shipping. The jar size is modest, only 25 ml, but that makes it the perfect size to tote along in your purse. (Tip: Don’t read this article and our article on de-cluttering your purse at the same time! Or better yet, do, but take our tips on packing your purse with a grain of salt.)


A Remedy for Cradle Cap: Bean-B-Clean Product Review

*Cradle Cap- a crusting and scaling rash (dermatitis) found on the scalps of many babies*
We’ve all seen babies with cradle cap before. Whether we’ve faced it with our own child or heard about the struggles of this rash through friends and family, dealing with cradle cap is not pleasant.

Well now’s the time to cheer, ladies… because cradle cap can be so much easier to cope with using this new revolutionary scalp massaging brush called Bean-B-Clean.

Bean-B-Clean is a soft, safe and soothing way to help deal with flakes and crustiness associated with cradle cap. This scalp massaging brush was created by a grandma and grandpa who were eagerly, yet unsuccessfully, searching for something to help ease their new grandbaby’s pain from cradle cap. With a few tweaks and tests to an existing product, Bean-B-Clean was born.

Though I do not have a little one in my home anymore, I have a very close friend who has personally benefited from having the Bean-B-Clean around. My friend (a very close one) has an 11-year-old daughter that deals with cradle cap all the time. She has these issues because her daughter is disabled.

My friend’s daughter has never walked a day in her life, she cannot speak to tell us what’s wrong nor can she move her arms to signal that she’s having a problem (much like a newborn).

Because of this, we need to pay close attention to her actions through facial expressions. We must also keep a close eye on any changes that take place on her body. Over the years, we’ve noticed that when her head is scabby and scaly, she tends to cry the most. Because she’s not a baby anymore, it’s hard to find a product fit for her. We’ve tried dandruff shampoos and other products, with little to no success.

After receiving the Bean-B-Clean and reading a few of the success stories on the product, my friend immediately came to mind. I had a good feeling about this product and was anxious to see if it worked.
After using the Bean-B-Clean for just a few short days, we definitely noticed a huge difference in her daughter’s scalp. It didn’t look as flaky anymore. What’s more, her daughter was not as irritable and she seemed to be more comfortable; much more than she had been in weeks. However, we’ve also noticed that, for us, the brush works best when bathing her. Being that she’s older, she doesn’t have that fine hair like most babies who do deal with cradle cap.

To this day my friend and I swear by this product. It has definitely been one life saver we couldn’t live without.

In the end, my friend now stands behind the Bean-B-Clean and states that, “If it can help ease the pain for an 11-year-old, it will definitely help a newborn baby for sure” …we honestly love the Bean-B-Clean and recommend it to anyone (whether young or old) when it comes to any scalp pain associated with cradle cap.

To find a retailer (and to learn more about this amazing new product), please visit www.bean-b-clean.com.

Suave Professionals Humectant Shampoo and Conditioner Product Review

If you like the smell of coconut and enjoy having your hair feel lightweight and extra clean, then the Suave Professionals Humectant Shampoo and Conditioner products might be for you. I’ve always been fond of Suave products, from their no-show solid anti-perspirant for women (available in great fragrances like sweet pea and a tropical one) to their various hair styling products. The Suave Professionals products are no different – there’s a lot to love.

The bottles proclaim you can have 98% stronger hair, and also that these products deeply moisturize as well as Nexxus. I am not sure about either of these claims, but I don’t have a reason to doubt it. What I can say wholeheartedly is that every time I washed my hair with Suave Professionals Humectant Shampoo and Conditioner, my hair felt super free from any impurities, buildup, or anything else that would weigh it down. My hair really did feel weightless and free, kind of like how you see those girls with the sleek and silky hair in the Pantene ads.

These products say they are meant for dry or damaged hair, but I used them on my own hair which tends to be normal to oily, and I found they did a fantastic job. Every time I use this shampoo and conditioner duo I swear that I detect coconut, as it is one of my favorite fragrances. However, I do not see coconut or coconut extract or oil on the list of ingredients. In fact, I don’t recognize most of them. Either way, I enjoy the fragrance of Suave Professionals Humectant Shampoo and Conditioner.

Both products are gentle enough for color-treated hair. I do notice my hair feels extra soft after washing it with Suave Professionals. I have also used Nexxus shampoo and conditioner, which has an even richer coconut fragrance. What I can say about the difference between the two product lines is that the Suave product itself is a bit “runny” compared to the Nexxus shampoo and conditioner, which dispense rather thickly from the bottle. I enjoy using the Nexxus because it is something I wouldn’t buy for myself very often (or at all). It’s a great product but it can be expensive to use on a regular basis. Since I am a fan of changing my shower products on a regular basis, I do enjoy the benefits Suave Professionals Humectant Shampoo and Conditioner bring to my hair. I will absolutely consider replacing them when these two bottles run out.

Suave Professionals Humectant Shampoo and Conditioner are available at your favorite drugstores and mass retailers. A 14.5-oz bottle sells for anywhere between $2 and $4. You can also buy it online at Amazon.com.


Purse Clutter!! Tips to De-Clutter Your Purse (Get Organized!)

Purses come in all shapes and sizes, colors, patterns, and styles. There’s a purse for every outfit, for every pair of shoes, and for every price point. No matter what your budget, no matter what the occasion, you can be sure there’s a perfect pocketbook just waiting for you in a department store, at an outlet mall, or at an online boutique. Of course the first challenge is limiting your urge to buy all the purses you love. The second challenge is keeping your purse clean, organized, and clutter-free.

If you’re like many women, you’ve switched purses at a moment’s notice to better coordinate with the day’s outfit, grabbing only the essentials – wallet, cell phone, car keys, gum or mints, and maybe a pen and some ChapStick. What happens to the half-emptied purse is anyone’s guess until the next time you want to use that one. In the meantime, your current purse is likely to fill up with crap that you really don’t need to stash in your handbag. It’s a brutal, vicious cycle, but luckily you can do something about it.

If you want to have an easier time finding things in your purse, like your preferred shoppers card or your ringing cell phone, organization is the key to success. It won’t take you long to get into a good swing of things if you follow a few simple tips for a cleaner, more organized, de-cluttered purse. Consider these tips for de-cluttering your purse.

1.    Carry only the essentials.
That means wallet, phone, gum or mints, your can’t-live-without-it makeup, a pen and a small tablet if you must, and maybe your checkbook if you really need it. If you don’t use it every single day, you most likely don’t need to lug it around every single day. Old habits die hard, but you should be able to at least reduce the amount of stuff you carry around even if you can’t stop completely.

2.    Find a better way to organize your store rewards cards and gift cards. The Card Cache is a handy purse gadget every girl should have. It’s a very simple and organized way to keep all your gift cards, preferred shopper cards, and even a mini Sharpie, all organized and ready for action in your purse. This stylish gadget simply unscrews so you can add each new card as available. Punch holes in your gift cards and preferred shopper cards and then you can attach them simply by threading the Card Cache’s wire through each card. No more rustling through your wallet and your entire purse looking for those lost gift cards – nope. You can find everything right where you last left it, securely fastened to The Card Cache. For more information, please see: www.thecardcache.com.

3.    Stop putting your receipts loose in your purse! If you are the type of person who likes to save all copies of receipts (like me), then get yourself a little coin pouch where you can fold the receipts and stash them neatly inside your purse. Once the pouch is full, you need to empty it into a larger container in your home where you will store all your receipts. Do not – I repeat – do not simply stuff more receipts into your purse haphazardly. If you can discipline yourself to keep all your receipts together in one place, it will greatly simplify your clutter issues at home and in your pocketbook.

4.    Keep candy, cough drops, or other tiny things in a zipper bag. If you can keep the contents of your purse organized, you will have a much easier time finding things right when you need them.

5.    Empty bags completely when you switch purses. If you are changing from one handbag to the next, don’t leave the inside of the first all cluttered up. Do your best to fully empty the first bag and only put into the second bag what you actually need.

Try these purse organization tips to keep your pocketbooks cleaner, free from clutter, and looking lovely even longer. Remember these are just a few suggestions for a more organized pocketbook. You can surely find other ways to de-clutter your purse.


Strand by Strand Hair Extensions and Ethnic Hair Textures

When it comes to applying strand by strand hair extensions to ethnic hair, or any texture of hair for that matter, the quality of the hair is most important.

For most ethnic hair textures, virgin Indian Remy hair works extremely well in creating a natural, long lasting look with strand by strand hair extensions. Hair referred to as “virgin” is hair that has not been chemically processed to alter the color, look, or texture of the hair. The hair is available in its own set of textures; straight, wavy, or curly. And the only colors available are that of natural black and various shades of dark brown.

The term “Remy” refers to hair that has cuticles facing the same direction, causing the hair to lay in the same direction.  The procedure of arranging the hair is such a way prevents tangling. Virgin Remy hair is the most highly sought after hair, as the high quality makes extension styles last a long time.

Strand by strand hair extensions are virtually undetectable once applied since each strand of hair is attached to a single strand of your own. The hair extensions can last for three to six months and you still have the control and flexibility to style your hair as you like.

When researching hair for strand by strand hair extensions on ethnic hair, be sure that you are using virgin remy hair. The brand of hair that I use for my clients is from the Wagman Primus Group, a trusted source in the industry for many years. My clients love the curly virgin Indian Remy hair. It’s easy for them to wash and go!

Toccara specializes in strand by strand hair extensions in the Washington, D.C. area. Some of her popular hair extension services and styles include bone straight, cascading curls, ponytails, custom color, wash-n-go, and faux-hawk. For more information, please see: www.myextensionsbytoccara.com.

Dry Spice Flavor Saver Canisters Product Review

Let’s face it, we’ve all spent money on spices before. I usually purchase mine every time I visit the grocery store. Why? Because I find one or two spice containers that have crumbled up and become unusable.

This is one of the many reasons I was thrilled to try Dry Spice. It has made my grocery bill a lot less expensive and my trips to the store much more enjoyable. No longer am I re-buying spices I’ve recently bought. No longer am I adding rice to my spices (because most of the time it doesn’t work well enough for me) and no longer am I wasting money.

Dry Spice (if you haven’t heard) is a great spice saver that eliminates clumps and caking. It keeps your spices fresh by absorbing the moisture that is normally drawn into your spice containers over time. These small flavor saver canisters are simply amazing. They do so well at retaining the fresh flavors and aromas, as well as extending the shelf life of your spices… in the end, saving you lots of money!

The great thing about these canisters is that they are not only used for savoring spices. They can also be used to retain freshness in coffees, teas, nuts and grains, chips, crackers, and other known items that tend to lose their oomph over time.

What I was really excited to find is that they work so well in clothing canisters too. I thought I’d throw one in with my winter wardrobe just to see how it’d work. Normally, in as little as one month, my clothes begin to have that ‘packed away’ smell. Well this time, the clothes smelled as fresh as when I initially packed them. I opened another box (one that I didn’t throw a flavor savor canister in) and it was already beginning to have that stale smell. I couldn’t believe it. It was amazing to see how one little canister can do so much. To say the least, I was (and am) very impressed.

PROS: I love that these flavor savor canisters are not just limited to keeping spices fresh.  If there is moisture to be drawn, these canisters can be used.

CONS: I’ve sat here for the past hour and still cannot come up with any problems.

Dry Spice can be found at a few fine retail outlets in California, Hawaii, and Texas. You can also purchase them at a few specialty stores online. Please visit www.dryspice.com for more details.

This product can be purchased as a 10 Dry Spice canister pack for as little as $8.99 each (including shipping). If ordering online, feel comforted knowing that they have many payment options (all with the security of PayPal).

PhytoCeuticals to the Rescue for Healthier, Happier Skin

While aging often brings wisdom, it also has a way of bringing fine lines, wrinkles and damaged skin along with it. For an easy regimen of daily skin care designed to rejuvenate and revitalize the skin (especially the face, neck, and chest.) you can try Phytoceuticals’ line of Phyto-C skin care products.

Offering a slightly unusual appearance, Phyto-C products come in liquid form held in eye-dropper bottles. You simply apply a small amount to your fingertips and smooth it onto your skin. It glides smoothly and silkily offering a refreshing feeling to your skin, even if it isn’t damaged or dry.

Phyto-C Poly Vitamin Gel is designed to decrease the appearance of fine lines and winkles. This intensive multivitamin treatment has been specially formulated to smooth, soften, and moisturize the skin while providing terrific, anti-aging antioxidants to your skin’s deepest layers.

Phyto-C’s Bionic Serum, an anti-aging and anti-acneic lightening formula is designed to go one step further than softening and smoothing since it is designed to help repair mildly damaged skin. You can use this product up to two times a day if you want, so it is perfect for those with either slightly damaged or mildly damaged skin.

Phyto-C’s E in C Serum contains 15% L-Ascorbic Acid with 1% of Alpha Tocopherol. It has been formulated with these ingredients to help protect your skin against UVA and UVB rays. The serum also stimulated collagen production as an effort to deter early anti-aging effects such as premature wrinkling. Be prepared for a tiny bit of tingling that might feel strange when you first put your E in C serum on. This only means Phyto-C is working its magic!

As women age and reach their 40s and 50s, it is even more important to safeguard delicate areas of the skin with skincare and anti-aging products. I enjoyed using my free sample of Phyto-C and I think you will too. Available at: Phyto-C Skin Care.
