Body Care💁🏻✨

You have probably realized that my blog has only addressed facial skin care. It can’t always be that way! I also take care of my body, I want my skin to look healthy and radiant💫

Cleanse:
•In the shower, I use a homemade shower gel. Some of the ingredients are coconut, almond, and soy oil and shea butter. I always try to use shower gels that are not fragranced. Unless I’m going out and wanna smell delicious👅

Exfoliation:
•This is my favorite part. I do this once a week or when I’m going on a date😌 I also use a homemade product for this step. I’m recently on my second body scrub. It’s a coffee scrub☕️ with the same ingredients as before except for shea butter, I add Vitamin E.

*NOTE: I apply the gel and the scrub on my body and massage it with the EcoTools shower brush*

And now for my favorite part. Moisturizing😍

For the day🌞

•I first moisturize with a body lotion. Right now I’m using the Hempz Herbal Body Moisturizer☘️ I love this lotion because it is so lightweight. It won’t leave a greasy residue on my skin. It’s also very soothing and it smells great. (I got it at TJ Max, they had other ones with difference light scents)

•Now for the sun care. Because I’m going out I use a sunscreen that has 30spf (if I were going to the beach I’d use one that has a higher spf than that) This will protect my skin from the harmful sun rays. I also noticed that when I started using this, my skin looks so glowy and tannish…I love it. (Quick disclaimer, I live in the Caribbean where I get more sun exposure than most people)

Night🌚

•After I shower, I quickly put on the baby oil gel shown above. I only use it when I go to bed because it is very heavy and will leave a very oily residue behind. But, when blended with the Hempz lotion, it will feel less oily and more absorbed into the skin💧

And that’s pretty much it💕

impalas-tardises-221b  asked:

What brands are good for makeup? I know nothing about it. What brushes do I use? Also can you recommend any inexpensive but still good brands?

Hi! 

Thank you for coming to our blog, and I am so so sorry for not answering your ask sooner.

It depends entirely on what country you live in as to what brands are cheap but here are some that I recommend:

  • L.A Girl
  • NYX Cosmetics
  • e.l.f cosmetics
  • 2b Colours

Here is another list of affordable but good makeup brands.

As for makeup brushes, it can be a little bit more difficult to find good quality brushes that don’t shed hair whilst using them:

  • Real Techniques
  • Morphe Brushes
  • Sigma
  • EcoTools

I hope this has been helpful. If you have any more questions, don’t hesitate you send in another ask!

@sophiabush: Did y'all know that April is Earth month?! For the first #FashionFriday of the month I want to talk beauty. I know you know I’m passionate about the environment, so this April @EcoTools and I are partnering up with one of my favorite organizations, @GlobalGreen, to help inspire others to take steps to help this beauty-full planet. We believe that people can both Live Beautifully AND Give Beautifully! I’ll be offering change-making tips all month long. Tip #1? Trade a product you use daily for a conscious version. If you’re a beauty lover like me, for example, you can trade in your makeup brush for one like EcoTools, that’s made with renewable, recycled, and cruelty-free materials. And the impact goes past your cosmetic routine. For every #ComplexionCollection brush sold EcoTools is donating $1 to the amazing efforts of @GlobalGreen. This campaign is a whole lot easier to participate in than the time I did a half marathon to fundraise for GG! ;) Join the movement, and join the conversation using our hashtag #EcoInspire. I can’t wait to read your tips for conscious living! You can read more about our efforts at EcoTools.com. And tell me how YOU make change in the comments below! #ConsciousnessIsChic
