Grapes For the Face

This week I have noticed my skin to be more radiant. Chances are it was a combination of things... The yogurt facial mixture which I last posted about and also GRAPES. Yes, you read right, grapes.

I remember hearing one beauty expert recommend that we should apply grapes to face...just burst it open and rub face. Leave on for 15 minutes and then rinse. I wish I had photos to share, I did not even bother wearing making for the third day in a row. I am so excited.

I also purchased aveeno cleansing pads since I had heard so much about it. Will write a review soon.

As you depart, do not forget to drink plenty of water, Eat your fruits and veggies and apply grapes to face!

Green Tea Bag: Hidden beauty secret

I have listened time and time again to beauty editors speaking about products with green tea, so I decided to conduct my little experiment. For almost an entire month I drank 2 cups of green tea and upon sipping the tea, I would use the tea bag as a facial cleanser. Simply put, I would just rub the tea bag over my face and neck. Did I mention that I only used the teabags when they were somewhat hot... This opens up pores so I would normally rinse my skin with cold water to close the pores or take advantage of applying a clay masque to draw out impurities. Rest assured, your skin will thank you. Make sure you apply a moisturizer after since your skin could become dry. Buena Suerte!

Favorite mask for over 9 years: Quenn helene Mint Jupep. Love, love, love it!
