Monthly Beauty Secrets

My monthly beauty secrets for December include my secret to shiny legs, how to get a salon blowout at home, a gluten-free lip gloss, a new nail polish brand, a proven foot treatment, and the secret to perfect makeup application. Read on to find out my beauty secrets for December.

1.   Purdy Peaushun Skin Tight Body Lotion is a body lotion that will make your skin glow without a tan. It is a skin-tightening, light-reflecting, paraben-free body lotion. Purdy Peaushun is the secret to Tracy Anderson’s shiny legs in her fitness videos.

2.   Sally B’s B Glossy Lip Gloss are my favorite. The lip gloss comes in liquid form with a wand. The cost is $18 for a 7-gram wand. Since I have celiac disease, I cannot have gluten containing products. Many cosmetic lines contain gluten and other harmful ingredients which end up being digested.  Sally B’s lip gloss contains organic, natural ingredients including organic beeswax, vitamin E, organic castor oil, organic shea butter, organic carnauba wax, organic lecithin, micas, and organic essential oil of peppermint. My favorite is Every Blonde’s Party.

3.   I am crazy about Smith & Cult nailed lacquer. The polish consistently delivers both flawlessly smooth coverage and brilliant shine. The 5-Free formula does not contain Dibutyl, Phthalate, Toluene, Formaldehyde, Formaldehyde Resin and Camphor.

My favorite colors are Psycho Candy for my toes, Kundalini Hustle for a party, and Plastic Beach for a getaway.

4.   The Rachel Zoe Dream Dry Little Black Box is my secret to an amazing blowout. The hair dryer also cuts my drying time in half and does not damage my hair. The dream dryer designers are Rachel Zoe and Robin Moraetes. It is the same blow dryer used at their Dream Dry locations in NYC and Chicago. THE DREAM DRYER™ is one of the most powerful blow dryers in its class.

Key features include the following:

  • Lab tested record air speed (85mph) for the fastest blowout possible
  • 1875 watts
  • Extra long 10.5 foot cord
  • 8 speed, heat & Ion settings
  • Extra cool Cold Shot Button
  • Next generation technology featuring the ON/OFF ION Generator switch for either sleek, smooth styles or voluminous texture.

The set also has a wet dry brush and turban. Both products help speed up drying time.

5.   Oribe Thick Dry Texturizing Spray is my secret weapon for adding volume to my hair. This amazing spray builds volume and texture. It works like a dry shampoo but does not make hair oily. The patented polymers absorb oil at the roots. Carrie Underwood and Blake Lively use this spray. I think they both have gorgeous hair.

6.   Baby Foot is the most amazing foot treatment. Baby Foot is an innovative foot care product that will make your feet as smooth and soft as a baby’s foot. The unique formula of 17 types of natural extracts allow your feet to exfoliate naturally leaving them highly moisturized. The treatment removes unwanted dead skin cells that have built up layer after layer. So say goodbye to rough, dry, cracked soles, by using a product that really works!

This how-to-guide is very helpful.

7.  I love my Vanity Girl Hollywood Mirror. I do not have a lot of light in my bathroom so I ordered a Vanity Girl Mirror. Several makeup boutiques and makeup artists use this mirror in their studios. Now you can have a professional makeup mirror in your home for flawless beauty application.

8.   I use the beauty blender make-up sponge to finish my foundation application. Beauty blender’s elliptical shape makes application foolproof by allowing access to hard-to-reach areas.  Beauty blender is latex free, non-allergenic and odor free.

9.   The Ageless Secret is like a facial and beauty mask in a bottle. I am very skeptical about most anti-aging products. I was very surprised with the visible results using this product. I also like to spray it on my face on the airplane for moisture.

The Ageless Secret helps with face lifting, skin tightening, hydration and increased circulation. The Ageless Secret ingredients include purified water, trace minerals, aloe, and MSM.

The Ageless Secret is an Energetic Cosmetic.  It works with your skin’s energy.  Since the energy is a field of energy that extends over the surface of the skin, The Ageless Secret does not need to penetrate deeply into skin.  Instead, the  STA (Skin Tightening Action) works safely over the surface of the skin to increase skin elasticity by up to 50% and give you a wonderful feeling of your skin feeling lifted and tighter with a beautiful healthy glow. The energized water will feel softer or “rounder” in your mouth. You can also tell it is working by your urine. It will have a stronger smell because the energized water will be helping to flush out waste. Eventually you will see tighter, younger looking skin.

It is important to remember not to x-ray the product. I prefer the gold version.

10.  A wet dry brush helps me comb out tangles in my hair. Due to my thyroid issues, my hair is very dry and tangles easily especially during the winter months. It also comes in a travel size version.
