It’s Allergy season here in Naples Florida and according to the weather channel Naples area Pollen is VERY HIGH.  When it comes to Lash Extensions an allergic reaction can happen out of the blue.  Even if you have never had a reaction, high pollen counts, histamine producing foods and drink can raise your body histamine levels putting you at higher risk for itching, swelling and watery eyes.  It can be mild or it can be severe.  It’s also important that you go easy on all the “extra’s” on your face and hair.  All chemicals can add to sensitivity issues.

So, what do you do if you are having an adverse reaction to eyelash extensions?  If it’s mild itching a benedryl could do the trick.  If it’s severe, you should contact your physician.  Removing the lashes can give relief also.

The reactions are typically caused by adhesive and/or primer and sometimes irritation from gel eyepads.  If you have sensitivities to make-up or skincare or seasonal allergies, you may not be a good candidate for lash extensions.

Cleaning with a baking soda, organic baby shampoo & distilled water cleanser may help also.

Cleaning your new Eyelash Extensions

It’s essential to take care of your eye lash extensions.
You must wash them daily!

It’s actually very easy to care for them.

We recommend our after care kit which includes a special oil-free, allergen free, eye and face wash. Our unique wash is made from pure and organic ingredients that will not harm your lashes. In fact the ingredients may even help your natural lashes grow healthier and stronger!

Steps to cleaning:

1. In a small cup or the palm of your hand, mix equal parts water and cleansing gel.

2. Stir this mixture with a clean mascara spoolie (provided in our kit) and then carefully comb it through the tops of your lashes (one eye at a time) then repeat a couple times. Do it a few times if you are wearing mascara.

3. Repeat this from underneath your extensions with your mascara spoolie.

4. For eyeliner removal you can use the lint free applicators included in your kit. These are reusable providing you clean them with anti-bacterial soap and allow them to dry thoroughly before each use.

5. Now you may rinse your eyes & lashes thoroughly with clean water, use a dry mascara spoolie to comb into place and to help “squeegee” the water out. You can follow up with your hairdryer on a low setting to fluff.

Wedding ready: how to look and feel your best for the big day

(ARA) – As a bride-to-be, you invest huge amounts of time, energy and money to make your big day unforgettable. Unfortunately, all of the stress associated with planning a wedding can take its toll, and you may neglect your own well-being in the chaos. Inadequate sleep, poor diet and high levels of stress can leave you feeling and looking less than fabulous, but with a few healthy and sustainable adjustments, you can look forward to your walk down the aisle.

Gorgeous greens

Pressure to look perfect in your wedding photos may lead you to fad diets that can leave you starving and irritable, not to mention pallid and worn down. Instead of restrictive dieting, celebrity nutritionist and author Kimberly Snyder says eating the right foods will result in weight loss, as well as improve the look of skin, hair and nails. In “The Beauty Detox Solution,” Snyder encourages a plant-based diet that draws beautifying nutrients from completely natural sources. Green smoothies are a great way to incorporate more fruits and vegetables on the go, Snyder says, and she encourages all her clients to drink them.

“Green smoothies are absolutely one of the easiest ways to get the nutrition your body needs to be healthy and beautiful,” Snyder says. “For my Glowing Green Smoothie, just toss the whole food ingredients into a Vitamix machine – it’s the only blender I use – and in seconds you have a nutrient-packed drink that will keep you energized and glowing. Busy brides-to-be will appreciate how quick and easy these are to make, and they’ll love how green smoothies make them look and feel.”

Sleeping beauty

From venue visits to cake tastings to bridal showers, it might seem like there isn’t enough time to get all your wedding planning done. However, skimping on sleep can have serious physical and mental consequences. Getting enough rest so that you can get through your seemingly never-ending list can be difficult, but it’s vital to help you look and feel your best. For better, more restful sleep, try to stick to a bedtime routine at the same time every night. Try not to eat or drink within an hour of going to sleep, and avoid electronic screens for 30 minutes before bed. You might enjoy a light activity – such as reading a book – directly before going to sleep to help clear your mind. Lastly, ensure that you continue to make sleep a priority, even as the special day nears.

Post-workout glow

A wedding is a great motivator when it comes to working out, and perhaps you have already joined a gym or invested in a personal trainer to get in shape for the occasion. Even if you aren’t worried about losing weight, exercise can do great things for busy brides-to-be. Snyder, an experienced yogi who has practiced around the world, encourages her clients and readers to explore yoga for better mental and physical health.

“Exercise releases stress-fighting hormones, and yoga in particular can be a rejuvenating escape from the day’s hectic happenings, no matter how new you are to the practice,” Snyder says. “By combining strength-building poses and attention to inner self, you can both tone your muscles and achieve mental bliss. Yoga is a great way to get fit and stay focused so you can walk down the aisle looking serene and stunning.”

Radiantly relaxed Unbridled mental stress can quickly lead to physical consequences, and you don’t want to look haggard or tired on your special day. Physical activity, whether it’s a long run, exercise class, or short jog around the block, releases hormones that will boost your mood for hours. And don’t underestimate the power of the senses: lighting stress-relief aromatherapy candles, soaking in a warm bath, and even treating yourself to a massage can help you relax as the wedding day approaches.

As you plan every detail of your wedding, remember to spend time on your own health and happiness. By paying attention to your physical and mental well-being throughout the planning process, you’re sure to be ready and radiant for your big day.

Green smoothies are an easy way to get the nutrition your body needs to be healthy and beautiful on your wedding day.



Restless Leg Syndrome – Safe relief without pharmaceuticals!

Have you tried Folate for Restless Leg Syndrome?

Montreal physician, M.I. Botez, MD believes theres a connection between restless legs and low Folate.  He’s conducted several tests and concludes that as little as 10 milligrams a day can help clear symptoms within 1 week.

Many folks are deficient as Folate is easily destroyed by cooking.  Try steaming leafy greens like spinach, beet greens and kale for starters.  Adding extra Folate may also alleviate depression.

It’s best to consult with your physician and discuss basic vitamins and minerals.  We seem to look at too many new miracle products and overlook the basic necessities!


Did you know that a case of sinusitis can be cleared up with extra Vitamin A?

In south Florida with the dampness and humidity it seems Sinus issues are quite common! Your Sinuses are hollow air spaces in the bones of your skull. They are arranged symmetrically in 4 groups of 2. If you have an allergy or an infection, and one of them becomes inflamed, sinusitis hits you!

The mucous lining will swell and pump out thick mucous. You experience ringing ears, pounding headaches and breathing is difficult.

Add an Extra dose of Vitamin A to your regimen! Vitamin A will enhance your immune system, thin the mucous, while helping to produce more of the “healthy” mucous producing cells. Keep stress levels low and eat well. Vitamin A becomes depleted by these things.

Be well!
