Ok so I just dated myself but those dang commercials from the 70's and 80's stick with you man....catchy!!
One thing I can say about summer even if were sun challenged like here in Seattle is that skin with a little bit of color or alot depending on your skin tone of course looks better in shorts, mini's and cute sundress's...period!
It helps camo those darn spider veins, bruises, cellulite and well makes your legs look longer and leaner in your shorts...YES please :) God did not give me the long legs I ordered darn it.
Even better if your going on Vacation and are going to be swimsuit bound show off that hot body you worked so hard at the gym with some sunless love as it accentuates the muscles even more...Think body builders but not so extreme of course.
For those of you who maybe have not had time to hit the cardio like you should well I can help there to as my Mom has always said " Tan skin looks better than white skin hands down" well she actually used a different word but you get the picture! :)
Cheers to those "Short short's" of summer!
I have been in this industry a long time and have seen lots of solutions and trends come and go, the most recent in the last 2yrs is Organic solutions.
Many salons are claiming to have Organic solutions which in fact they are NOT they do contain organic ingredients but to be considered 100% Organic every listed ingredient must be ORGANIC!! the cosmetic bronzer in most solutions is made of FD&C food coloring which is usually the last item listed but its not organic, the other items must be organic as well like the glycerine, aloe, DHA must be eco-certified if it does not say that its NOT organic.
I'm pointing this out as I have had clients ask me if my solutions are Organic and when I tell them how it works in this industry its consfusing for them; especially when the last place they had a sunless tan told them they use 100% Organic solutions.
They do make solutions without the FD&C food coloring and use Organic carmel coloring which I used to use as well. The BIG problem with that is its very sticky and every client I have come across HATES being sticky for the next 10-12hrs! but still not every ingredient is Organic?!
I do LOTS of research every week on new products or newly updated lines and I personally use solutions that have natural and organic properties in them as much as possible. Along with anti-aging, skin conditioning ingredients as well, so that your skin feels soft as well as glowing and pretty.
Let me know if you have any questions regarding this blog, I'm passionate about what I do and if someone know of a solution that is really 100% organic I would love to know about it!!! :)
So not sure where our nice weather is I'm sure its coming soon (glass half full!!) but I know I'm feeling the lack of the Mr. Sun not showing up and the showers that are seeming to plague us right now...
Its been fun on the flip side of things though...I can give my clients spirits a lift with just a simple pull of my trigger! Some sunless sunshine and Poof the next day your a Bronzed Babe or a glowing sexy gal. Pretty cool!
I also have my full range of colors in for summer from the most subtle to gotta have it back from vaca goddess.
I love what I do!! Cheers and heres to Summer!!
Loving what I do and keeping busy with my wonderful clients and my 4yr old daughter. I'm very blessed and grateful!!
