How to have beautiful skin

lumiere-de-vie

Looking beautiful is not all about how we apply our make-up . It all starts from within our bodies, as well as taking care of our skin. Our skin is make up with a ton of little cells that are so delicate, we must take care of . It is important to wash your face twice a day, once when you wake up in the morning and once before you go to sleep.

There are many different skincare lines out there on the market, of course like all things, not all of them are created equally. We are all different and have different needs, which is why there are so many different kinds of lines out there. I will start with one that is Luxurious yetย  comes from All Natural materials. It is called Lumiรจre De Vie, which was created by Amber Ridinger. She created this line because she was so frustrated that none of the other skincare lines were good for her skin. She would need to mix that product with another one from another line, so she created her own line, with the help of her mom Loren Ridinger. ๐Ÿ™‚

The products of Lumiรจre De vie Include a Facial Cleanser, facial toner, an Intense Rejuvenation crรจme, hand & body crรจme, Illuminating fading fluid, serum concentrate, volcanic ex-foliating mask , Needle-free serum (this like botox in a bottle) and an eye balm.

As you can see there are quite a few Products in the line. All magnificent and designed for different purposes.

A basic routine with Lumiรจre de Vie would be used like this:

1. Start with the Lumiere de Vie Cleanser. Wet your hands with water and add the cleanser to your fingertips and massage your face in a circular motion. (this shall be done morning and night)

2. Next use the Toner to help balance the moisture in your skin.

3. Detoxify your face with the Lumiรจre de Vie Volcanic ex foliating mask,using a thin layer and letting it to sit for 10 minutes.

4. Next step is to treat your skin. The order of products depends on texture of product, start with the lightest going to the most dense.

5. Apply the eye balm around your eye area to avoid those dark circles and wrinkles around the eye. With Lumiere de vie you will watch them go away!! ๐Ÿ™‚

6. Use the Hand & body creme to keep your hand and body moisturised just like your face ๐Ÿ™‚

Kisses for Hope

#KissesforHope is Motives Cosmetics’ campaign for Breast Cancer Research. Since October is National Breast Cancer Awareness month, Motives Cosmetics teams up with Earlier.org every year for a Breast Cancer Fund raiser.

Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Many of us know already that October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and for those of you living in a shell in the past, you do now ๐Ÿ™‚

Motives Cosmetics is not just a “makeup” line, they are a Makeup line with a Mission to support Women’s rights and Awareness, especially Breast Cancer Awareness. With October being just around the corner, I thought it would be appropriate to talk a little about the Motives’ social responsibility program in regards to Breast Cancer Awareness.

Motives partners with Breast Cancer Awareness Organizations is a great advocate for early detection. The earlier it is detected, the better your chances are of surviving. In this Video, breast cancer survivor Lisa Winkler, was able to be diagnosed at Stage One of Breast Cancer, eliminating her need for Chemotherapy, all because she was proactive in doing a self exam on her self and seeking medical help. You can watch the Inspiring video here:

Breast cancer is not something to be taken lightly, usually it is a family history thing, but in Lisa’s case it was not. Which is the most shocking. With all the advanced medicine and early detection devices and methods we have today, its easier than ever to be diagnosed earlier as well as be a Survivor .

To Honor Breast Cancer Awareness month, Motives Cosmetics is Donating the profits of two of their most popular products: Motives Mineral Lipstick in Brilliant and Motives Collagen Core Lipstick in Inspired.

Motives Collagen Lipstick in inspired
Motives Collagen Lipstick in inspired
Motives Mineral Lipstick in Brilliant
Motives Mineral Lipstick in Brilliant

 

 

 

 

 

Both of these colors are just Gorgeous, would you agree? Its all for a good cause Starting October 1st, the proceeds of these two beautiful Lipsticks benefit Breast Cancer Awareness!! (I’ll remind you don’t worry)

Look beautiful and feel great about helping others at the same time! ๐Ÿ™‚

Do you know anyone with Breast cancer ?
