Alohaaaaa everyone! I am very excited to introduce to you my new favorite Hawaiian skincare line: Honey Girl Organics! This line is organic, cruelty-free, gmo-free, gluten-free, and made with only the freshest & natural ingredients! Each bottle of their skin food is individually handcrafted in small batches from the North Shore of Oahu, Hawaii! If you have dry skin like I do, “The Lotion Face & Body” and HoneyGlo Rejuvenating Serum are two products you must get your hands on!
They have made their way into my holy grail skincare arsenal FAST! Because they are made by hand, you want to make sure and give them a good shake before each use. The fresh, natural ingredients like organic honey, jojoba oil, hemp see oil, carrot seed oil, olive oil, & rosehip seed oil are so soothing on my skin. I’ve always been a big fan of organic honey in my skincare regimens & it is a primary ingredient in Honey Girl products! The Lotion can be used on both face & body, but I prefer savoring every drop for my face. It is a very rich moisturizer and a tiny bit goes a very long way. I really appreciate that about these products and foresee them lasting for a long time. The Lotion also works in complete synergy with my makeup & has replaced the need for a primer. Loveee that!
One small drop of the serum is also all you need. That one drop is so emollient that it could even replace your moisturizer for the entire day! I like wearing both products in conjunction with one another at night, as insurance for lasting hydration while I sleep. I wake up and it feels like I don’t even need to add moisturizer!!
Also, if you are into aromatherapy like I am, the serum is a 2-in-one soul-soother that hydrates skin & uplifts your senses all at the same time! It smells similar to one of my holy grail lip balms by Dr. Hauschka. I love the herbal fragrance so much that I asked Honey Girl what ingredient smells so divine in their serum. They told me it is from the ingredient “propolis”, which is made by bees. Good to know for when I go on the hunt for a perfume containing this divine ingredient :))) So if your skin is needing a moisture boost, then these two nurturing skin food products are the ones for you! Hope you guys and gals enjoy my review video of this wonderful line! Mahalo! ❤ ❤ ~Kelle
This week I had the pleasure of attending UCLA’ Health’s Healthy Living, Healthy Skin Seminar! I thought it would make a great educational addition to my skincare routine video! It was a great event hosted by UCLA dermatologist, Dr. Jenny Hu, and she presented a wealth of preventative health and skincare knowledge!
Sunscreen was a hot topic at the seminar and I was given some cool UV ray bracelets to wear that can serve as reminders to wear sunscreen! They turn blue when exposed to harmful UV rays, and will come in handy on hikes and beach days! Here are some awesome eats Dr. Hu recommends for healthy skin:
Vitamin D-rich foods
Vitamin E-rich foods
The best advice I can give about personal skincare is to keep skincare simple and continue doing what works best for you and your skincare needs! Nowadays we can easily get lured into the myriad of skincare products out there, when the best items are already in your kitchen! In my skincare routine video, I mention a few of my favorite daily, natural holy grails for my skin: water, vinegar (organic, raw, unfiltered, with the veil of the mother), honey (organic, raw), & green juice. I explain why I love using honey to not only exfoliate, but also to oxygenate my skin. The trick to skin oxygenation is to rub honey onto your skin in circular motions, and then rinse with water for your very own diy oxygenating facial! I also limit steaming my skin to once a week, because excessive heat is not so great for the skin! VINEGAR as a natural holy grail productl!?!? While it tastes pretty bad on it its own, vinegar can be diluted with water, and makes THE best healthy skin tonic! Organic, unfiltered vinegar with the “veil of the mother” is my favorite to use for many reasons: it is a great skin detox, boosts your immune system, helps circulation, & improves ph balance. In addition to ingesting it daily, I occasionally use vinegar on blemishes with a cotton ball and it zaps them like a charm! Also a great facial toner when diluted with water. First thing when I wake up I drink a tablespoon of vinegar and then have a glass of green juice on an empty stomach. These are great and affordable ways to get glowing skin, get your health on, AND boost energy! Whoop, whoop!! A shout out goes out to Blondie V for requesting my skincare routine video! Also a congratulations to Irina, in Russia, for winning the ELF eyeshadow set on her birthday! Happy birthday and thanks for your support, Irina!! And a giant thank you to Real Deal Management for my castings this week! My manager has worked so hard for me over the years and I feel so blessed!! Stay tuned for my get-ready-with-me makeup tutorial video for one of this week’s commercial castings. Please be sure to leave me any comments or questions you might have for me! Until my next post, have a gorgeous weekend, my lovelies!! xoxo ~Kelle
