SFB Beauty: Benefits of Dry Brushing

Posted on: September 11, 2018

 

Dry Brushing…. I know what your thinking—what is this and it sounds so barbaric. This beauty technique has been around for decades and making it’s way back into mainstream beauty and here’s why. Dry brushing has been known for it’s many benefits, its not expensive at all, it’s so simple and heres what it does:

Helps shed dead skin cells (and encourages new cell renewal),

Gives you smoother and brighter skin.

It can also help with any pesky ingrown hairs

Aids and assists in improving vascular blood circulation and lymphatic drainage

You know me I’ve always believed in the idea, “Sharing is caring” and when I tell you this technique works it absolutely does. Take time for yourself for a change, make self-care a priority, because it is and it’s important. It goes hand in hand with your health and overall well-being. So, why not try it out, you won’t be disappointed!!

4 Reasons Why you Should Start Dry Brushing

 

#1. INCREASE CIRCULATION


 

Not to sound too scientific or spiritual, but circulation is what sustains us and blood flow is the life force within us. For real. Our circulatory system is the pathway that supplies vital nutrients + oxygen to every part of our body and pushes waste and toxins out. Slow or stagnant circulation can cause some serious issues for our cells, organ functions, energy levels and overall health. While skin is our largest organ, it’s also the last to receive nutrients from the body, so dry brushing provides a much needed boost of blood flow to keep skin nourished, clear and radiant. Increased blood flow = serious skin glow. (Stay tuned for my post on how to get glowing skin COMING SOON)!

 

#2. EXFOLIATE


 

Gentle strokes with natural bristles is all you need to reveal smoother, softer skin – no harsh, aggressive or abrasive exfoliants needed. Dry brushing effectively exfoliates + sloughs off dry, scaly skin (insert praise hands emoji here) which improves skin’s texture + tone and preps skin to better absorb moisture. Without proper exfoliation, you may just be applying moisturizer on top of layers of dull, dehydrated and dead skin cells, which doesn’t allow for nutrients to deeply hydrate and heal. Be sure to dry brush pre-shower and massage in this body oil  (my favorite body oil) post-shower, and we think you just might become obsessed with this beauty ritual – and your new skin.

 

#3. DETOXIFY


 

One of the most powerful and important benefits of dry brushing is lymph drainage. Okay, it may not sound pretty, but we can’t stress enough how essential lymphatic drainage is for radiant skin, a healthy body and a happy self. The lymphatic system helps to detoxify the whole body, but when this system is blocked, it causes toxic buildup in tissues – leading to blemishes, rashes, irritations and other skin conditions. These light, simple strokes stimulate lymph flow to flush out toxins + waste which strengthens the immune system, prevents sickness and increases energy levels. Add dry brushing to your beauty routine to promote radiant skin, daily detox and feel even more invigorated.

 

#4. IMPROVE APPEARANCE OF SKIN


 

Smoothing away impurities in the skin and the appearance of cellulite? It’s possible. Dry brushing has been believed to soften fat deposits below the skin’s surface, redistributing them throughout the body and reducing the appearance of cellulite. Whether it’s a temporary effect (plumping + invigorating skin) or a long term solution (removing toxins to rebuild connective tissue) for cellulite, the bottom line: dry brushing works.

 

DRY BRUSHING — 4 EASY STEPS


 

  • Pick up a dry brush (Click here)  and before showering, begin at your feet and brush upwards with gentle, short strokes – always towards your heart.
  • Brush in a counterclockwise direction over your belly (this helps to improve digestion!) and then brush from your hands to your heart.
  • To finish, brush down toward your underarms to help flush out toxins + improve lymph drainage. Always use light pressure – the point isn’t to scrub off your skin, but to gently, effectively get blood + lymphatic fluid moving.
  • After showering, apply body oil  (Click here, here, here for some of my faves) + enjoy your skin’s glow and your new found energy.

Start dry brushing today and I promise, you’ll fall in love with your skin all over again – or finally, for the first time.

Keep your skin glowing all year round, start dry brushing today!

SFB Beauty with Esqido

Posted on: April 17, 2018

 

Natural is beautiful, but make up is always glam.

I’ve always enjoyed testing and trying out new make up products. Although, my go to look is more on the natural side I love to glam it up every so often. I love to have fun with products and try different looks, great for special occasions or even to try on some of my clients.  I particularly love playing around and trying different types of lashes too. Lashes can definitely add drama and glam to any look but can also be very natural at the same time too.  I have your typical asian long lashes, but fall straight.  I love long, full, luscious lashes with curl and lift.  I’ve always loved how the look of full, luscious lashes. I would often get my eyelashes done with extensions. Although the trend and habit looks great, it can be costly and at times a little hard to maintain. But you’re in luck, I have an alternative with all the same qualities and so much more. Looking for the same look without the cost and maintenance? Here’s how you can achieve the same look and effect without spending so much. These have become my go to favorites lately and I’ll be featuring them in my beauty favorites post coming to the website soon. They’re at a great price point, high quality, easy to apply with all the same luxury that eyelash extensions has and but so much more. The process may seem daunting, tedious and a little tricky. But once you get the hang of it, it’s pretty simple. The alternative– luscious, luxury, mink lashes by Esqido.

 

I’m all too familiar with faux lashes and what I’ve noticed, some can be harder than most to apply and not to mention heavy on the eye. Lashes by Esqido are lightweight, easy to apply and absolutely beautiful.  Esqido specializes in luxury mink strip eyelashes, and ever since launching their lash collection a few years ago, they’ve garnered crazy interest by so many.  They’re lashes have been seen on the Victoria Secret Angels like Adriana Lima, Candice Swanepoel, Gigi Hadid, and A-list celebs like Rihanna, just to name a few. Discover ESQIDO’s mink false eyelashes. Meticulously handcrafted, every pair is incredibly soft & lightweight, stunningly beautiful, and unbelievable natural looking. I’ve partnered up with Esqido to tell you all about there amazing brand, why you should get your hands on a pair(s) and why you’ll absolutely love them!

Thank you to Esqido for sending me these two gorgeous pairs of lashes. I am so grateful and absolutely love them. I wore them to a recent event I attended and they certainly glammed up my look. They were super easy to apply, super lightweight and easy on my eyes. They’re soft, luscious and absolutely stunning. You can see the before and after in the pictures seen here. You can easily notice the vast difference. Even without all the glam, they can be wore for a more natural look as well. See my full glam look featuring the BFF Esqido Luxe Mink Lashes.

SFB Beauty with YSL: Tatouage Couture Liquid Lip Stain

Posted on: October 12, 2017

Hi Beauties!

I know it’s been sometime since I’ve done a beauty post……. Ask and you shall receive.

As you all may know, and if you don’t I’m a huge Beauty enthusiast on all levels. I believe when you beauty is not only on the outside it’s also from within as well. When you truly feel comfortable with yourself, in your own skin that to me, is beautiful. 

With Fall upon us, I’m always on the search for the perfect shade for the season. I’m all about lip shades that make for great transitional colors that work through the seasons. Of course, when I find a shade that I absolutely LOVE I have to share my thoughts with you all. Remember, sharing is caring, and I love sharing and I do care about you all!!

Recently, YSL released their new matte liquid lipsticks, Tatouage Couture. The shade I have on here is shade 08 Black Red Code.  The perfect mix between a deep red and burgundy, great for the Fall and Winter seasons. The formula reminds me of Chanel’s Rouge Allure Ink. YSL’s Lip stains don’t dry quickly matte, but for maximum results and full opacity I would recommend to layering the color on your lips to get its full color pay off.  The color pay off is simply gorgeous and I love the formula of this product. It’s transfer-proof, non-drying, extremely comfortable and it didn’t settle into my lip lines. It has the signature YSL scent, but it doesn’t linger once it sets. It’s unique applicator shape makes for a full and easy application. Overall, I found that these lip stains are long lasting, lightweight, ultra matte, gives a high impact color with a naked lip feel. I absolutely love this lip shade and I would highly recommend this product to anyone and everyone.  So, indulge and treat yourself to this luxurious, gorgeous product, you won’t be disappointed. YSL  offers 18 great shades that are now available at your local Sephora or anywhere that sells YSL Beauty Products. 

Thanks to Influenster and YSL Beauty for sending me this lip stain complimentary in exchange for an honest review.

 

Stay fabulous, strong, confident, fearless and beautiful both inside and out loves!!

As always, thanks for reading, following along and supporting my journey!

SFB Beauty: Kopari with Me

Posted on: June 13, 2017

Hey there Loves!

I hope you’re all having a great week so far! With the Summer weather in full swing, I wanted to share with you a brand and their products that I’m absolutely loving!

I’ve told you before, I have a huge obsession with coconuts. I also shared all the amazing benefits they have for your overall health and even beauty. If you missed that post you can read all about it here. A few post ago on my Instagram, I shared my newest product obsession with the brand Kopari. Kopari, is a slimmed-down version of the word ‘kopparai’ in Indian it means coconut. Coconut’s are the fruit of all fruits that have the most amazing benefits.

Coconuts are a delicious and nutritious source of fiber, vitamins, minerals, and amino acids. It has tons of calcium, potassium, and magnesium, as well as plenty of electrolytes. Coconuts are full of diverse health benefits from protecting against heart diseases to preventing tooth decay! They can also protect against heart disease by increasing good cholesterol and lowering the ratio of bad and good cholesterol. They help treat malnutrition because it is easy to digest and absorb. Coconut’s also have great beauty benefits too.

Coconut oil can make your skin feel and look radiant! Who doesn’t want glowing skin!!? You skin feels smooth, hydrated, supple and moisturized. Coconut oil is made with fatty acids and the good kind that have great overall benefits: Lauric, Capric and Caprylic acids. These are good fats that help keep skin hydrated and super soft. Most importantly, it contains vitamin E , which is loaded with antioxidants to keep skin ageless and protect against dryness. Great anti-aging components that will keep us looking beautiful and youthful. Not only does coconut oil do wonders on your skin but your hair too. Coconut oil can make your hair look and feel soft, luscious, strong, shiny and healthy. Coconuts are full of restorative proteins and vitamin E which help to increase body and shine to your hair.

Kopari takes coconut oil to the next level… Only using pure, innovative, organic ingredients to enhance its overall performance. Now, how can you not want to try Kopari after all hearing all of it’s amazing benefits.

Say Aloha to Kopari Beauty—where every product starts with 100% organic coconut oil and is made with the purest intentions. So you always know your beauty is safe with us. And best of all, performs like a dream.

With Kopari, you can coconut with confidence because:

  • We use 100% pure, organic coconut oil sourced from the Philippines.
  • All of our products are made as natural as possible with the safest ingredients. Pinky swear.
  • No sulfates. No silicones. No parabens. No GMOs. No toxins. No kidding.
  • We don’t compromise performance (nope, not ever). Our products are absolutely effective, salon quality, spa-worthy, beauty bombshells.
  • We use the right blend of pure ingredients with cutting-edge chemistry to enhance the benefits of coconut oil. This secret sauce delivers better results than conventional products.
  • We believe in being totally transparent about our formulas and stand by every ingredient decision we make. No really, ask us anything.

It’s made out of only the purest and organic ingredients. How does Kopari’s coconut oil differ from other coconut oils? Kopari’s coconut oil isn’t like your typical cooking oil. It’s not yellowish like most coconut oils, it’s clear, white and non- fragrant. It’s paradise in a jar, literally!  In fact, it’s strictly for all things beauty related. High quality coconut oil for the skin and hair, sustainably sourced from a small family farm in the Philippine islands.  So, I can tell you from personal experience– Kopari’s products are highly organic and pure. Another plus, they’re from my native homeland of the Philippines, where I can guarantee you everything there is not only beautiful but pure and honest. All there products in my opinion, are must-haves and great for the Summer season.  {The result? The highest quality coconut oil with the finest aroma, absorption, and texture. The bottom line is we love and nurture our coconuts every step of the way so we can consistently deliver you the most high-end product. Discover what thousands of Kopari fans have said about our Coconut Melt… this is no “grocery grade” oil and will become a staple in your beauty regimen}!

My absolute favorite product from Kopari is their Organic Coconut Melt . This is the holy grail of all Coconut oils. It’s straight up 100% coconut oil that’s so pure you’ll truly be amazed!

SFB Beauty: My Jade Roller Obsession

Posted on: April 11, 2017

 

If you catched my Instagram post about my latest beauty obsession, you’ll know that I’m loving/obsessing over this best kept beauty secret. My beauty tool obsession: The Jade Roller. This ancient Chinese beauty tool has become a big phenomenon in today’s beauty world. The jade roller has been around for centuries, predominately in China used by the rich and elite but has become popular and mainstream in the last year or two. I’ve been using my jade roller for the last 2 years, and I’m ABSOLUTELY OBSESSED.  Many celebrities, bloggers and Youtube vloggers have been using the Jade roller and can’t stop raving about the amazing results

I’ve said this time and time again, especially since I’ve entered into my 30s, I’ve been paying more attention to my skin and all my skincare needs. I’ve also taken early preventative action to keep my skin looking youthful, radiant, hydrated and free from any premature wrinkles. I’ve become more meticulous with my beauty routine for both morning and night. You can see my skincare routine and all the products I use in my post here and here. Along with all my beauty regiments and other products I use here, and here .

Similar to crystals, the jade stone has been known to have some healing properties too. It’s proven to help with anti-aging, as well as cool, tighten, and depuff your face in seconds. The concept behind Jade Rolling is similar to that of derma-rolling (which I’ll share my experiences in another post) but more gentle with way more healing properties and benefits. It helps increase stimulation, drains congested lymph nodes, rids the body of toxins/waste, stimulates collagen production, helps with sinus issues, balance chi, while also taking care of any under eye problems you may be experiencing.

Here’s how:

  •  Keep your Jade Roller (this is the one I have) in the fridge. The stone is naturally cold, but it works best when the stones are cooled and it feels quite refreshing.
  •  Put eye cream under your eyes or directly on the smaller end of your Jade Roller. Use your Jade Rolling with your eye cream– this will help concentrate and moisturize your eye cream into your skin. To reduce any fine lines, dark circles or puffiness.
  • In a similar motion when using your fingers do the same technique but with the jade roller. Concentrate going from the inside to outside corner of the eye, pressing down towards the ear.
  •  Repeat on each eye a few times, twice a day. Use the larger end of your roller on the rest of your face/neck.
  • Use the large end to roller upward along the sides of your face and cheeks to promote circulating, repeat this process on each side 10 to 12 times.
  • Repeat the same process on your forehead creating a half moon motion to relieve and soothe any pain or headaches you may experience.

 

Benefits:

  • Just like exercising your body to get toned, the jade roller can tone your face, slims the face
  • Helps clear fluid
  • Boost circulation
  • Improves elasticity
  • Promotes cell turnover for a brighter, healthier look
  • You can also glide the roller over the skin after applying a mask to help the product to further penetrate into the skin
  • Soothes Sinuses and relives headaches

For a more thorough, in depth instruction on how to use the jade roller see the video and pamphlet instructions below.

                 

Instructions: 


The jade roller has become part of my daily routine where I’m rolling my face twice a day sometimes 3 to 4 times a day. I’m seriously obsessed and have seen amazing results and a significant change in my skin. My skin looks brighter, healthier and slimmer. My undereye bags and dark circles have reduce significantly and overall my skin feels and looks amazing. I’m so happy I found this tool it’s become a huge component to my daily skincare routine. The result are life-changing, and my obsession with the Jade roller is REAL!! When you get your hands on this tool you’ll be rolling obsessed! Purchase your jade roller today, you’ll love this tool and the results.

Beauty with SFB: All About Chanel and the Le Lift System

Posted on: December 6, 2016

 

I’m always on the search for new products that help with anti-aging, firming and lifting. Let’s face it, as much as I love make up, theres only so much make up can do.  I’m very in tune with my skin, and I listen to my skin and make sure I treat it well too. I’m always reading and researching ways to keep my skin clean, clear, hydrated, refreshed, rejuvenated, well the list goes on. Now that I’m in my 30’s I’ve been adding more products that contain ingredients that aid in anti-aging and firming. Although, I’m still considered young and my skin looks youthful and fresh, this is how I’d like to keep it looking for as long as I can. My philosophy is why not start early, and kick the aging process in the butt with the best skincare products known to man.  Your skin should age gracefully not prematurely. We all have beauty secret, some are worth telling and sharing. Here are mine and you’ll want to try these. Trust me, you won’t be disappointed!!!

I discovered these products when I watched one of my favorite Youtuber’s:  HudaBeauty’s beauty video. She talked about Chanel Le Lift products and she swore by them. She spoke very highly of Chanel and the  positive results she’s seen in her skin and they were quite noticeable. {How could you not LOVE chanel, I mean from their handbags, clothing, fragrances, make up and skincare you can’t go wrong, EVER!} After seeing the results on Huda and after hearing her speak so highly about the products I wanted to try these out for myself. And I did just that. Although, it was hard to get my hands on the massage tool. It was released overseas early last year but not many were released in the US. I searched high and low for this tool and had no luck anywhere. I was told that the US were suppose to get this hot new beauty tool back in April/May but that never happened. It wasn’t until I went to the UK where I found it and bought it. I’m so happy I did!

This unique massage tool was created to boost the effectiveness of the Le Lift cream. This simple tool helps the skin become more receptive to the benefits of moisturizers, serums even facial oils. It’s easy to use and  fits the contours of any face shape. The tool is suppose to help massage the product into your skin evenly while stimulating the skin and lifting the muscles. Reducing the signs of wrinkles and aging effects. Leaving your skin and face feeling firmer, looking youthful and lifted. It’s best to work from your chin to your jawbone and across your cheekbones. Here’s a great tip: Place the tool in the fridge so that when you apply the tool to your skin the cooling effect helps speed up drainage.
