Bus Posts Don't Count

So what, I said that I will be cutting down on blogging?! Posting while sitting on the bus so does not count!! Really, I just want to share some wisdom from a beautiful colleague. She's 46 years old and looks like she's in her mid/late 20s. The last six months I've been "harassing" her on her beauty secrets. Today she spilled!!

1) Never wear make up! Just wash, moisturize and put on some lip gloss. NOTED! Lately I have been trying mineral makeup but my skin is breaking out. It's nothing to do with the products, I just have acne-proned skin and can't wear makeup. So I'm going back to my makeup-free morning routine. Except for special events, I'll doll up for those.

2) A natural face mask: egg, cucumber and olive oil blended. Sometimes uses avocado in the mix. This mix makes me nervous because of my tendency to break out. I might try it though... I'll need to ponder and drill my colleague for exact measurements. Her saying "just some egg, cucumber and a bit of olive oil" doesn't fly with my need to know the exact details.

I must add that this lady is always so happy, loving and chill. The care-free atmosphere that surrounds her must have an effect as well.

Beauties out there, share your secrets! I'm nosey like that and want to know what makes you feel (and look) younge and beautiful. XOXO

I'm probably the oldest person reading your blog (53) so here's what I've learned: to stay attractive, stay fit. Walk often and move your body in whatever way you enjoy. Just simply be physically active and you'll remain years younger than those who don't.

Drinking water helps me feel/look better. Sometimes I put in a little lemon juice to make it tasty. That and sleeping well during the day.

And good genes, you've got them. Be grateful!

Riding the bus (or the big red limo as I affectionately like to call it!) is my best thinking time! I rarely wear makeup and honestly I sometimes feel more beautiful au natural! My best beauty tip is sleeping like a cat (I try to get at least 9 hours a night!) and applying body lotion before bedtime! Thanks for sharing! xo Emily

Beauty is only skin deep Ashelle! Even if you have the most beautiful skin in the world, and look like you are 18 when you are 40. I am sure we all know those people who are lackin inner beauty...after you get to know them they dont look so good do they? Keep your aura clean and life stress free and you will look and feel beautiful!

I have finally found a solution to my acne prone skin. In the morning I just wash it with warm water and apply a light amount of day time lotion. In the evening I wash my face with my usual cleanser, then I tone it, and then use a night time moisturizer. I think the toner is the magic trick because ever since I started to use it, I haven't had nearly as many break outs!

I swear by the egg mask too! Add a bit of yogurt for moisture and lemon juice (acts as a natural astringent) and it works wonders.
I use only natural products on my face (korres skincare) and my skin is always balanced and healthy-feeling. I've recommended this line to a few other people and they always come back to me shouting its praises.
