Fashiona's Beauty Tips

What is the common thread between A-list women and the rest of women in the world? They all want to look the very best that they can especially for a big event whether that be our debut at the Oscars or that very special evening that they have planned. A-listers have stylists, make-up artists, beauticians, estheticians and the very necessary yappy dog that fits in their it bag.

YOU have coupons, drugstores, magazines and...Fashiona.

Here are her recession friendly tips for getting ready for that big occasion:

• Fashiona is known for a few things…one of which is her megawatt smile. One word...CrestStrips. While living in NYC…pre-recession she actually sprung for professional bleaching but was dissatisfied with the results. She used CrestStrips to repair the job and has sworn by them ever since.

• Water, water, water. One of easiest and budget friendly things ANYONE, can do for their hair, skin and digestive track well-being. Skip the bottled water and go for a water filter instead. Fashiona has used Brita since her college days.

Queen Helene Mint Julep Masque…clears up a multitude of sins fast…especially breakouts due to stress or the chocolate cake you attacked last week. Even used the night before, your pores are clearer and your complexion fresher. Fashiona has found the best results if she decreases her daily intake of bacon, she uses the mask overnight and drinks as much water as she can stand.  Follow the link below to get a coupon for $1.00 off your next Queen Helene product. Feel free to pass it on. Enjoy! 

• Whether you have the same rich color of your childhood or you have “enhanced’ it over the years. A 10 minute clear glossing treatment can restore a lustrous shine to your crowning glory.  Fashiona prefers Clairol Nautral Instincts Shine Happy.

• Moisturize…water does cleanses you internally but you still need to keep your skin well moisturized. Fashiona’s skin like her temperament is somewhat temperamental. Skin creams with fragrances and other unpronounceable ingredients do not agree with her at all. What does work are creams that are close to nature as possible like aloe-based Skin MD.
