Beauty Starts From The Inside.

What we eat it shows in our skin in order to improve our health and skin we need to take a good look in what we consume day by day how much nutrients and vitamins are you getting in your system. Is it sufficient? Do you see changes in your complexion? For instance is it dry or to oily, sometimes is not the product that we use as much as what we eat like unhealthy fats and to much sugar. I know with out it the taste is blah... and hard to consume I get it, If that is your concern there is so many foods now that have improved in the taste. We are unable to notice when we are eating something healthy and that's a Good Thing! I enjoy eating all types of food technically I always label myself as an epicurious person or like they said need to try it before you knock it. I enjoy drinking a good smoothie and when I see a new recipe the ingredients are the first thing I always take in account how can each ingredient benefit me and would I like it. Most of the time ingredients could make me look twice then before you know it I love it, for instance Green Smoothie the ingredients are spinach and kale in most recipes I came across, first thing that comes to mind " no way that could taste good,"  I was so sceptical and than I decided to make my version of Green Smoothie it was not easy it took me several attempts and concoction until I came up with this recipe. I cannot pass a day without drinking it. This is a great example how the food we eat could benefit your beauty and health, not that I'm an expert but I just like knowing the nutrients that the food contains and the benefits in eating or drinking it.
My Smoothie consist of :
Kiwi which by the way high in vitamin C and E and Omega 3 the good fat that helps slow down the sign of aging who does not want that Hello!!, it also contain Fiber and Antioxidant.
Spinach is been said is good for the acne issues.
Banana it has vitamin B6 great for healthy hair and skin.
Coconut water is has great source of electrolytes.
Honey improve blood circulation.
Mint helps fight against dry skin.
Note: Avoid if you have any allergic reaction to these ingredients.
Mint Banana Green Smoothie
1/2 cup coconut water
1 tbsp honey
1 banana, peeled
1 cup spinach
7-10 mint leaves
2 kiwis, peeled
5 ice cubes
Place all ingredients in the blender and blend until smooth.

Is one thing we all have in common is Earth so in Honor of Earth Day here is eco friendly beauty tools.

I enjoy a good makeup brush that is design to achieve flawless results and is great for our Planet Earth.
Eco Tools are Planet Friendly and the best part they do not test their products on animals that inspire me to use there makeup brushes. How can I go wrong with that. Eco tools is a 100% cruelty free using natural element since they are eco friendly company they invest in being green. Their makeup brushes offer high end quality for the price the brushes are durable and smooth even after washing.
Here is a image of a set I purchase in Walmart for $7.95, a bamboo 5 piece brush set with a reusable storage pouch so you can storage your  makeup brushes in. If we all contribute in helping our planet we will see an impact in our participation.  HAPPY EARTH DAY

Welcome to my new blog is of everything or anything you can Beautify. Argan Oil is the main Topic today.

Today I will like to talk about certain products that gets alot of hype and sometimes is confusing to all of the woman out there in choosing the right products that meet our standards. Is not like I'm an expert on this product but realistically we the consumer usually have the final say if the products are worth buying or even trying {Don't You Guys Agree?}. Today Im focusing on Argan oil since this came out is been a big hype about how great it is and how good it is.

Some are happy with it while others are like hmm not sure...Here is an image of the few I try base on recommendation by certain hairstylist professionals.  Let me inform you how these Argan Oil work for me let start from Left to right Deepshine by Rusk it has a great smell but it did not shine like it promise but yet if you dye your hair with home dye products and add Deepshine by Rusk you will see how shining your hair gets. Amika too greasy but great to add to home spa scrubs for bodies because it has a luxury smell to it at least that is my opinion. Agadir love it but work better if you apply after applying Keratin product to get the right results of shine and smoothness it does not leave your hair greasy, Josie Maran love her products this Argan Oil works great for the ends of your hair to prevent breakage be carefull in how much you apply, I use it as a moisturizer for my body after showering it make by body smooth, I hope this helps in making a decison on Argan Oil. I know there is more products out there let me know if you have a favorite or one I should try. I would love to hear your opinion.
Thanks for reading.
