Not Just On The Inside……

Not Just On The Inside……

Growing up we would all agree that we never really had an understanding of different sensitivities and preferences. Nor a lot of patience. I believe that the craziest thing I had ever heard of was a vegetarian…….a what??!?! You don’t eat meat – why??!!

Now it wasn’t just purely a case of lack of education, but also exposure. 

Growing up in western Queensland, Australia – most of my friends came from cattle and sheep farms, so to be fair that would seem a little unusual to my mind.

 

Changing with the times

Thank goodness, times have changed, education has caught up and acceptance has prevailed. 

Lets have a look at some important dietary preferences and sensitivities that are quickly evolving.

Respecting Health Issues

Diabetes – a group of diseases that result I too much sugar in the blood (high blood glucose) In Australia this is that fastest increasing chronic disease – growing faster that Cancer and Heart Disease!

Cholesterol – is a type of fat found in the bloodsteam.  High Colesterol can clog the blood vessels that supply the heart and other parts of the body.

Peanut, Tree Nuts and Seed allergies – often varies from person to person- from severe emergent symptoms to cramps, runny noses and nausea.

Veganism is a practise of abstaining from the use of animal products in a persons diet.  Avoiding eggs, dairy products and honey.

A true vegetarian eats no meat at all, including chicken and fish. A vegetarian diet reduces the risk of chronic degenerative diseases.

Whether a personal decision or necessity with diet and food choices, it is the realisation that we have to supervise what we put into our bodies, however we also need to monitor the skincare, bodycare and cosmetics we also use.

 

Skin is our bodies largest organ and will absorb everything we apply.

Layering Effect

Layering Effect

I have been there, as I am sure you have……
you take a bit whiff of someone with bad BO (Body Odour)

Arrrrgggghhhhhh, it is so vile! 
Is it really THAT difficult to NOT have body odour!????

Do these people not shower?
Wash their clothes? 
Dab a bit of perfume on? 
Spray/roll on some Deodorant??????

Our sweat glands develop once we hit puberty,
so PEOPLE teach your children EARLY about smelling nice!

  

General hygiene is the golden rule here obviously!

. I am sure we do not have to go through the tick list on how NOT to have BO and maintain a pleasant body scent!  I would like to though introduce you to the Deodorant I have been using myself for many years, and also what is referred to as the layering effect.

We are so fortunate to have many beautiful products on the market to use to bathe with.  Many delicious and delightful fragrances that make our smelling senses dance! The layering effect is when you use multiple products all enhanced with the same fragrance to retain that product smell throughout the day! 

 

Bathing in a Botanical Energizing Shower Gel with the Lime Fresh fragrance, is fruity and fun!  This is my absolute favourite Gel.  Balanced with natural extracts, these gels gently cleanse without drying the skin.

I must say, Nutrimetics has enriched these products in a way that they are PH Neutral on the skin, contain no soap agents and therefore is perfect for anyone who suffers with skin conditions!

We have discussed the importance of Exfoliating our body to remove the dead skin buildup.  To continue the layering effect, next use the Lime Fresh Exfoliating Body Scrub

WOW – this Nutrimetics product features two exfoliating ingredients, Rice Bran Wax and Pumice to buff away dead skin cells to leave an ultra smooth and of course, fresh skin.

  Bonus!

An added little benefit of no soap agents in the Botanical Shower Gels is, you do not receive that white soap film scum on your shower glass!

Your body is tantalising with the fresh aroma of
Lime Fresh Botanicals!

You feel great AND smell great!

 Enriched with Aloe Vera Extract, Echinacea and Green Tea Extract, Nutrimetics has produced an antiperspirant that delivers protection the whole family can rely on day after day.  A unisex fragrance that is alcohol free to ensure
kindness to our underarms.

  Myth Buster

Despite common belief –  there is no convincing evidence that antiperspirants cause breast cancer.
A hoax email started this rumour!

 Go Forth and Smell Beautiful!


Self Care is always worth it!

Lets Talk Feet

Lets Talk Feet

FEET
We treat them poorly!
 

And yet, they lug us around each and every day!

As women we squeeze our feet in gorgeous, very impractical highheels, always muttering something along the lines of how worth it, it will be!

We paint our toenails to poke out the end of our shoes in hope that no one will notice how ill-manicured they are.  We pray to the feet-gods that the dead skin buildup will go unnoticed for the evening, and then ONLY have we suffered through this kind of experience do we attempt to massage some cream to
soothe aches and dryness.

Health Alert

Despite our lack of interest in our feet (not shoes, we love shoes), they can actually be a guide to some
health issues
that we may experience.

 

Feet can give us warning signs of Thyroid conditions, Blood Supply and Circulation, Diabetes, Fluid Retention, Melanomas and Rheumatoid Arthritis.  

Wow, some big issues there!
Please take yourself along to a health professional if you suspect any of these nasties!
We all agree on sore, tired feet are a part of an everyday ailment!
Maybe we need to pay a little more attention!

I Confess……….

 

Who will confess to foot spa envy when you walk around in
the shopping centre past those nail salons?!! 

 ME, ME, ME everytime! 

Nothing I like more than propping up in the massage chair,
for a soak and fresh polish!

Though that poor poor girl that has to cheese grate my dead skin! 

A NO WAY job for me!

Whilst it is a pamper treat, it is not practical nor financial for
an everyday selfcare routine for our feet.

 

Daily Foot Care

* Wash your feet thoroughly
* Be meticulous in drying your feet and toes
* Gentle file daily to remove dead skin
* Be sure to cut toenails carefully  
* Moisturise feet before going to bed

DIY at home

Now, I know that I am a huge cat enthusiast with all my furbabies, but even I had the giggles when I popped along to the $2 cheap shop and purchased 15 small kitty litter trays!!


WHY you ask,
because kitty litter trays are

the perfect size for our feet!

When we want to soak our feet, a bucket is very unfitting and sometimes pulling that whole foot spa out is cumbersome.

Do not make feet care a chore!

Kristie’s Quick Tip

 

Fill your Kitty Litter tray with warm tantalizing water!
Pop in some Marbles or Smooth Rocks  
Add some Lush Nourishing Shower Oil
or Refreshing Botanicals Shower Gel.

And you are ready for an in-home soak!

 

Step-by-Step

STEP 1

 

Using the Cultivate Spa Foot Scrub by Nutrimetics, squeeze your desired amount into your palms.

 

 Massage one foot at a time – ensuring your fingers entwine with your toes to exfoliate
thoroughly!

Do not be afraid to use firm pressure – your feet will LOVE you for it!

 

Swap feet and repeat!

 

 

 

STEP 2


Popping your foot back into the kitty litter tray to rinse! While rinsing off you will
feel an instant smoothness 

and revitalisingly clean!

 

 The feeling of clean fresh feet is quite difficult to describe!

STEP 3


Complimenting the Cultivate Spa Exfoliatant, use the corresponding Cultivate Spa Foot Crème.

 Massage top and bottom of your feet.  Cultivate Spa Foot Balm is encapsulated Tea Tree  to deliver foot refreshment at its finest.

The aroma of Lemon Myrtle and Peppermint with delight all your senses.

Cracked and Dry Feet

Extracted from the seed of an Apricot, Nutri Rich Oil is enriched with the pure Apricot Oil.

Nutri Rich Oil mimics the skins oils, relieving dryness and improving elasticity and moisture retention.

This concentrated formula is the perfect solution to dry,
cracked heels and feet.
 

As a true sufferer with dry, crackly feet, I know you will see results and relief with these specialty formulated products by Nutrimetics!

 

Cheers to Better Feet!

Blank Canvas

Blank Canvas

 

 

 

A Blank Canvas – it is what every artist begins with,
and creating a gorgeous makeup requires a blank canvas as well!

 

With so much focus on palettes, warm and cool colouring, contouring and deflection of light….
we really need to focus on the basic fundamental of makeup application, to begin our colour creativity!

 

GREAT NEWS IS you do not have to have a beauty degree
OR
a whole beauty case full of expensive products to
achieve a fabulous Everyday Makeup Wear.
 

 

 

We Want BIG Results with LITTLE Effort!

Before and Afters

Lets keep this as real and transparent as it can be with some before and after shots of three gorgeous girls I met recently!

Met Shannon – a Mum with two extremely cute little kidlets, soon to be married, working on the family property! Shannon would like a very natural, very simple Everyday Makeup Wear for her Country Wedding. She has naturally red cheeks ALWAYS!

Met Trina – she is employed at a local Gerbera Farm. Trina acknowledges that her years of smoking has not helped her skin, particularly the lines around her mouth. Her makeup concern was decreasing the visibility of these lines.

Met Louise – she is studying, and just loves wildlife, particularly the welfare and rescue of all kind of animals.  Both Trina and Louise are Shannons Bridesmaids.  Louise wears very little makeup and wanted to achieve a great coverage with little effort.

To begin, we have used the most fabulous products on the market today, nc Line Prime and Wrinkle filler.  This little jar of sponge-like spheres in a lightweight mousse expand instantly in fine lines, deep pores, scarring, wrinkle leaving the complexion flawlessly smooth.

Every artists blank canvas is smooth and even!

You will notice, for Shannon this has decreased the unevenness in her chin area, the line outside her smile lines near her mouth and under her eyes!

Secondly, we have used nc Liquid Cover Concealor
in Medium.

This liquid twist-tube concealor has a waterproof formula.  The colour-correcting mineral nuetralise the appearance of dark circles, redness in the skin and open the eye area to look naturally light and refreshed.

For Shannon we have used this concealor across the redness in her cheeks and on her chin.  This has given Shannon an all over concealment ready for foundation.

For this photo of Shannon, I have ONLY used these two amazing products!  Talk about simple for a maximum outcome!  WOW!

Look at the visible difference for Trina with these two products!

Can I say she was blown away, that she could even achieve this type of look with only two products!

I always feel warm and fuzzy when a simple task for me means so much for someone else!

To complete this simple Everyday makeup we have used the nc Velvet Finish Mineral Powder Foundation in the shade of Toffee for Shannon.

I tell no lie when I say THIS foundation is brilliant and by far the foundation I sell the most.

Here are the reasons why:

You can choose your coverage, dust over quickly for a light coverage or build through to a full formal look.

Perfecting Mica Beads keep adapting to your skin tone as they hit the warmth of your skin.  Therefore the longer the foundation sets, the more natural it looks.

These brilliant Mica Beads also absorb any excess oil or sweat, leaving a matte finish!  Great for summer and any woman experiencing menopause.

Presented in a very chic compact with own mirror and sponge included. 

Its starting to come together nicely!

Building womens confidence through the simple process of guiding, taking the time to care and helping select the correct colours is a passion of mine.

The unsurity can easily be overcome by having the willingness to understand that makeup comes with different understanding for every woman.

I do believe though, every woman does enjoy a little bit of this special attention!

Look at Louise’s glowing face – all her concerns were left aside once she relaxed and viewed her blank canvas.

So WOW WOW
and more WOW!

Look at Shannon, just a super simple makeover, with some beautiful products, and with an easy guideline to follow for an Everyday Makeup!

Shannon chose Garnet as her lip colour, and how gorgeous does she look!

 

 

Building Confidence!

Imagine with woman supporting and building each other up, how we can make a difference to each other lives!

 Always choose Kindness


Thank you for sharing this makeup journey with me!  


Happy Shopping!

LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS CUSTOMER REVIEW!!!

As a natural blonde, the Nutri Rich Hair Repair+ Treatment Masque has become a part of my weekly Hair Care routine – I use it much like I use a mask for my face; once a week instead of conditioner.  Unlike some salon recommended products I have tried, the Nutri Rich Repair Hair Treatment Masque does not leave my hair feeling sticky or weighed down.  I have noticed a reduction in split ends, frizz and have even had compliments from my hairdresser on how healthy my hair is looking.

 

– Samantha
