With more time that I could fathom, not only have I been taking care of the mental, spiritual, physical & hustle, I am making moooore time than ever to dive into the wonderful world of beauty.

In this post, I have featured my tried and true must have products when I am feeling a bit extra and wanting to be pampered!

Just a few simple items can definitely change the mood and vibe around even for those who are little bit harder to please or impress (me 😝)

This pleasure filled pampering affair starts with Dr Dennis Gross alpha beta peel pads/ also tanning face sheets, this extremely effective duo not only exfoliates my skin (really important process and maintenance) it also tans my face to match my body! As you know, we keep very meticulous care about our face so upon finding this gem, I was hooked! See what happens when you tan, THEN EXFOLIATE with the products you have, it actually lessens the time of your fabulous tan…and if you don’t exfoliate at all…well, we won’t go down that road okay?

This process for the face takes no longer than any application of my skin care routine combined. The perfect sized towelettes can be used as a whole (or give into my hack of cutting it in half and save the other for the next week)

Next tanners for the body. I have tried multiple products from the St. Tropez line as well as Isle of Paradise, having used both and also seen my colleagues with it, the isle of paradise collection has a range of  light, medium, dark, which are perfect for skin tones lighter than I as it is a gradual hint and change! I on the other hand, have that medium tan/olive skin that I like to toast up a little bit more, so I went with the master of all insta tanning.

So face done, body done, now hair! I have abstained from colored hair for a little over 10 years so after going light, I wanted to experiment with color and lo and behold! Semi permanent hair dyes with deep conditioning features?! Say WHAT!

Moroccan Oil, color depositing mask has changed the game folks. This do it yourself magic in a pouch or tube allows the consumer to not only apply the color like you would conditioner, it has the most famous ingredient to help nourish, hydrate and strengthen your locks Goldi! The color I chose was hibiscus, loving this intense fuchsia shade that fades into ALLLLL THE HUES OF PINK, leading to its rose gold pink, blush pink situation that I am absolutely fond of.

DIY-ing has been making me feel empowered, informed, creative and definitely saving money utilizing my own talent and skills to perform such goddess glam. I hope you are all taking the time to be well, as well.

Self care, rituals and bad bitches, AJ
