NailMUA: Charmeric At Home Facial

People are always complementing my skin and I can’t tell you how many times I’ve shared this D.Y.I. detox face mask recipe…so here it goes:

Materials

  • Baking soda
  • Bentonite Clay
  • Activated Charcoal
  • Turmeric
  • Manuka Honey
  • Castor oil
  • Frankincense oil
  • Rose Water
  • Water
  • Non-Metallic Mixing bowl
  • Spoon or Facial Spatula
  • Cotton Balls

Step 1:

Cleanse

Wet face with warm water or use facial steamer to open pores. Next, mix paste with 1 tbsp. of water and 1 tbsp of water and add 6 drops of Tea Tree Oil. Apply baking soda paste mixture to face and scrub gently to remove sweat and skin residue. Finish this step by swiping away all left over paste with a Rose Water moistened cotton ball.

Be sure to clean and dry bowl for use in the next step.

Step 2:

Detox Face + Clean pores

Now mix together 1 tbsp. of Bentonite Clay, 1 tsp. of Turmeric along with 1/2 tsp. of Activated Charcoal. Add 1 tbsp or 2 tbsp of water to the dry ingredients and mix with spoon or facial spatula until smooth and apply directly to face and neck.

Here is “how to” vid on making this mask: NailMUA: Charmeric Facemask

Let air dry and rinse off completely.

Pro tip: Re-wet mask with fingertips for easier and faster removal.

This is the point where you want to extract any pimples or remove black heads/white heads now that the mask has pulled them out your face.

Swipe again with Rose Water, this helps the skin calm down after the extraction process.

Step 3:

Hydrate + Moisturize

Apply Manuka Honey all over face and neck. Let stand for 15 mins. Rinse and swipe with Rose Water once more. This is ultra relaxing and replenished elasticity and hydrates your skin.

Mix a dime sized amount of Castro oil together with 5 drops of Frankincense. Emulsify and fuse oils together by rubbing the mixture between your hands for 20 seconds.

Smooth over face and neck in upwards motion to feed that new amazing layer of polish skin you have just revealed! Enjoy the aromatherapy while you admire your glowing skin!

NailMua: Liquid Gel Experience

So I’m super love with my #pinkandwhite #french #liquidgel #overlay. I got them done at #GablesNails in #Miami. It was my first experience receiving #liquidservice

Process:

  1. file & prep nail surface for product application
  2. apply base gel layer
  3. apply builder gel
  4. apply high gloss top layer

As a #nailtech, I’ve had every service, and I must say this #liquidgel is by far my preferred #nail #manicure.

Benefits:

  • light weight
  • more durable than acrylic
  • longer last
  • less harsh on nails
  • no smell

A good #liquidgel #overlay should set you back about $60 for a full set and about $40 for a refill…but defiantly well worth it!

So head over to 1940 ponce de leon blvd, #miami, Fl 33134 to try #liquidgel for yourself!
