Beauty and Health ....

 

Hello Darlings,

Here are my can't life without "beauty and diet" suggestions that I strongly stand by and my everyday essentials..

 

Can't Live Without...

( Literally.... P.S. click on the pics to read more about each)

Rosebud Salve - If I was stranded on a deserted island...this would be my only product.

- I use it for everything.

- It is always in my bag, next to my bed, and in my bathroom.

 

Kerastase Masque Nutri-Defense and BedHead Tigi HeadRush

- I use it nce a week to repair my hair damage.

- It is a bit expensive and hard to find, but it really is magic.

- Bedhead Shine Mist is lightweight and makes my hair shiny and frizz free .

 

Tea and Ice Cubes

- I drink peach green, raspberry or Moroccan tea about 4-5 cups a day.
- I drink espresso but only when I feel tired- otherwise I try to stay away.

- Every morning and nights, I use chamomile ice cubes instead of a toner.

- Chamomile is very gentle skin tonic to replenish and enrich dry or sensitive skin.

 

Perfume and Antiperspirant

Smelling great and feeling fresh are super important.

I use Clarins antiperspirant, which keeps me dry and fresh all day.

As for my perfume, Coco Mademoiselle is my all time favorite.

 

Exercise: Ballet Stretches and Rock climbing

- I still do the same stretches I did when I danced ballet, and if you're new to it: Check Out this book " NYC Ballet Workout" by Peter Martins ( click). This book is very good.

- Rock climbing is my hobby and it gives me pretty good exercise.

- On the side note, I hate gyms... but I stay active by stretching couple times a week, rock climbing weekly, ski with my dad in the winter, and rollerblade in the summer.

 

Food and Vitamins

- I grew up in a health conscious family.

- I don't believe in diets or saying NO, rather what's important is proportion.

- I am take multivitamins and Omega 3,6,9 Supplements.

I was also looking into transferring to Kiehl's for change.... What do you think IS IT WORTH A TRY?

Do you have any "beauty or diet secrets", products that you can't live without or that you just totally hate....

With Love ....

Marta
