Save Your Face with Shira Organic Skincare
I am always on the look out for new skincare products since my move to Vegas 2 years ago. I would describe my skin as normal to oily. But with this extra dry desert environment, I need something that can replenish the moisture in my skin. Shir-Orgainic has developed this one-of-a kind organic skin care line. It is used in spas around the world and is packaged in eco-friendly bamboo jars. It is formulated with super-fruits and saturated with phytonutrients, which hydrate and strengthen skin, stimulate cell regeneration, and protect against environmental damage.
Not only does the lotion feel amazing, it also smells completely delicious! I have been using the Blueberry Night Cream and I wake up refreshed. It has been a great routine to incorporate the Shira products into my rituals and I highly recommend that you try this. I am a big supported of independent brands that are putting a lot of thought into their product development.
Using natural products give me the confidence to wear light BB cream, or just a touch of concealer without full face makeup. Better skin means better health 🙂 It is important to take care of your skin/organs especially past the age of 30!
Blueberries are one of the most nutritious and powerful super-fruits due to their high levels of phytochemicals, antioxidants, Vitamins C and E. Blueberries are also full of amino acids, vitamins, and essential fatty acids. Blueberries help the body manufacture collagen which makes the skin supple and smooth. Using the Pure Blueberry Night Cream will help boost hydration levels making skin feel incredibly nourished!

@Clayspray for Your Winter Skincare Routine
I’d love believe that with over half of February behind us, Old Man Winter is making his retreat… but these weekly (and sometimes twice weekly) snowstorms and cold weather tell a different story. So until I can start thinking about packing away the the heavy coat and switching to something light and springy, my winter skincare routine is in full effect.
Here are my top 5 winter skincare quick tips:
- Go easy on the heat.
Hot water dries out your skin, so suds up with lukewarm water instead.
- Time the moisturizer.
Apply moisturizer immediately after washing your face while it’s still damp; it will absorb moisture better.
- Don’t ditch the sunscreen.
There are less hours of sunlight each day, but winter sun combined with snow glare can still damage skin.
- Switch to a heavier moisturizer.
The same light moisturizer that gets you through the summer might not cut it in the winter. Switch to a heavier cream to combat winter dryness.
- Let your skin glow.
Shed that layer of dull, dead skin by using an exfoliating mask to smooth and add a natural glow.
Keeping those tips in mind, I recently tried out Clayspray, a clay mask in a spray. The Clayspray line consists of five different masks, each addressing a specific skin care concern: Pore Refining, Skin Brightening, Glow, Toning and Mattifying.
I considered the different options and decided on Glow because wheres my skin is oily in the summer, it tends to be dry during the winter.
It comes out like a gel shaving cream. I like that I didn’t have to fumble with a tube–it’s very convenient to apply.
After I sat with the mask on for a few minutes while it dried, I was able to easily rinse it off — and the results? My skin felt softer, refreshed and had a noticeable glow. Most clay masks have a drying effect because they work to draw out impurities and environmental toxins from deep within your pores. But Clayspray also deposits moisture and nutrients to your skin, which makes it different from regular clay masks. It’s awesome because that means I don’t have to follow up my clay mask with a moisturizing mask like I normally do in the winter.
The clay is sourced from the Irene Mine in Spain’s Iberian Peninsula where it has been protected from pollution and contamination for thousands of years.

Dry Skin Rescue @SebamedUSA
Winter dry skin is the worst! The scaly snake skin legs occur when I am too lazy to lotion after a shower and it freaks me out! If you need a great lotion, try Sebamed Anti-Dry Hydration Lotion to save your skin this winter. I remember the logo of Sebamed from my childhood and you know how much I love Retro! So here is a cool throwback beauty secret you may have forgotten. Sebamed is a German skincare company established by Heinz Maurer in 1957.Snow Ready by heydoyou featuring Josie Maran
Phytosteroles, shea butter and other plant-derived lipids as well as a moisturizing complex with polysaccharides extracted from potato starch care for, smooth and soothe the skin.
The lotion is absorbed quickly and completely, leaving no trace of stickiness. The pH value of 5.5 protects the skin’s natural protective acid mantle against dehydration and irritants. In a three-week dermatological test, the care lotion improved the moisture content of dry skin by 26% even 10 hours after the last application and despite interim washing.
Keeping warm and using Sebamed since ’84.
For all day hydration and a brand that I remembered using all my life – Try Sebamed!
Save your Skin with Curel
For severely dry, irritated skin, Curél Intensive Healing Cream comes to the rescue. The ultra-thick—but not greasy—balm with petrolatum and glycerin strengthens the epidermal barrier to lock in moisture. (To buy: $12 at drugstores)
Winter skin means dry and crackly snake skin – ew! Petroleum Jelly use to be the go-to item for dry skin but that was when I discovered Curel! This fantastic Fluff-like lotion that is double duty and triple action. It is not sticky, absorbs quickly and has no smell at all. The only tip to get this absorbed into your skin after a shower is to make sure you are completely dry. If your skin is still wet, the cream will slide on in a blob.
Now I can add Curel to my list of the white fluffy things I love.
So if you want to go from scaly to scrumptious, Curel is the go moisturizer for you this winter!
