Alopecia Help De-Stress Your Scalp With Saffron

Hello beautiful women of the world,

De-Stress With Saffron

De-Stress With Saffron

Recently I was asked to share a secret for hair loss with the readers of More Magazine. Women from India are known for their beautiful, long, thick hair. Want their secret? In India, it is known that saffron helps repair, strengthen and encourage new hair growth. To turn the most expensive spice in the world into a hair treatment follow these steps:

  • 2 tablespoons Virgin Coconut Oil or Neem Oil (microwave in a bowl for a few seconds)
  • Add a pinch of Saffron, stir well and massage it into your scalp and hair, concentrating at the roots
  • Steep 20 – 30 minutes
  • Rinse with warm water and conditioner

BONUS: Saffron helps relax a tight scalp, which is thought to hamper circulation and may slow hair growth. In fact, the antioxidant-rich spice is considered one of the top treatments in India for alopecia, an autoimmune hair-loss disease.

Beauty Recipe: The Italian Secret To Glowing, Flawless, PERFECT Skin

 

chickpea gram flourThis Italian beauty recipe combines humble kitchen ingredients into a seriously potent face mask that soothes, nourishes, busts blemishes and leaves you glowing flawlessly. If you’re looking for the Italian beauty secret to perfectly flawless skin…look no further…The Beauty Gypsy by Anuba Charan shares her amazing secret below.

“I’ve spent most of these last weeks wandering around the inner reaches of France, Germany and Italy, with one conclusion: while French women are the epitome of understated chic and the Germans have a robust constitution, it is the Italian bellisima who wins the complexion stakes. Seriously, have you ever seen their skin? How it’s taut and tight, literally hugging the bones and glowing with an inner radiance that can’t be replicated with any amount of foundation or highlighter? How it’s flawless, despite their spending hours in the sun and eating a diet rich in carbs and sugar-laden tiramisu?

It’s enough to give mere mortals like me a complex. So… time to dig! And after interviewing a whole clutch of women from Milan to Matera (it’s the most exquisite Basilicatan village – look it up!), there are a few ingredients that crop up time and again. Humble kitchen ingredients that make for the most potent beauty treatments: olive oil, chickpeas (garbanzo beans), eggs and lemons. And quite a few Italian mammas (all with the skin of a 25-year-old on an 80-year-olds body) offered up this one recipe that combines these beauty ingredients into one seriously potent face mask that soothes, nourishes, busts blemishes and leaves you glowing flawlessly.

Manic Makeup Intervention on The Doctors

Makeup Mania

Makeup Mania

Recently I visited The Doctors Show to give one of their guests a major makeup intervention. Meet Maria. She was taking over 4 hours (!) to do her makeup…which of course was creating major problems in her day to day life. So it was up to me to show her tips and techniques to looking fabulous in about 30 minutes.

She was a little skeptical but in the end she agreed that losing jobs and boyfriends were definite reasons to change her routine.

Here is the segment if you missed it.  For me, it was really about showing Maria how to condense her products and create a set of core products that made her look and feel great. You really only need 5 or 6 key products to enhance your beauty and from there you can play with trends and new colors.
