Las Fabulosas: Beauty & Style

A New Year, New Refreshed You

By Robyn Moreno for Las Fabulosas

This month, we put you on the path to feeling and looking más joven with top tips to refresh your skin, face, hair, hands, feet and nails.

Put Your Fresh Face Forward

An orange yogurt mask is the perfect remedy for tired skin. The yogurt nourishes dry skin while the Alpha Hydroxy Acids in the orange repair and rejuvenate it. This treatment is also cool and relaxing. Stir one tablespoon of plain yogurt and one-quarter cup of juice from a fresh orange in a bowl. Smooth onto face, and leave for five minutes. Rinse and see the improvement.

Restore Shine to El Cabello

Once a week after shampooing, rinse your hair with a cup of apple cider vinegar. The acids strip the build-up in your hair, leaving your mane soft and shiny.

Massage Your Scalp

The only part of our hair that is alive is the root, which is embedded in our scalp. Massaging your scalp stimulates the flow of oxygen and blood to the root of your hair, invigorating it to grow and thrive. For relaxing, give yourself a mini-scalp massage before you go to bed. You can also do it in the morning, at work or even when you’re stuck in traffic. It will make your tresses look better and keep you stress-free.

Remember Your Ojos

Alleviate tired, puffy eyes with chilled cucumber slices to take off the edge. You can even try potato slices or chilled chamomile bags, which act as an anti-inflammatory.

Treat your Hands and Toes

For a foot-abuloso
indulgence, soak your tootsies in a bowl of warm whole milk. The lactic acids
soften skin. After 10 minutes, take a pumice stone to your feet to slough off
dead skin. Rinse off the warm water, file and buff you nails, and push back
your cuticles. Finally, paint your nails a gorgeous color.

sticks and stones

As kids we’d respond to teasing, taunting – BULLYING with the nursery rhyme… “Sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me.” Looking back at this as an adult I have to call this little comeback for what it is…BULLSH*T! Excuse my language but that’s the word that comes to mind when I think of this verbal shield we were taught to use as kids. Yes, its true sticks and stones CAN break your bones but words, they can leave a forever impact especially when used in a negative manner. As a kid my mother was verbally abusive. I will not go into full details of the things she’d say to me but I will say they are things you should NEVER say to a child; especially your own. I do not know why she would say the things she said to me. I do not know why she made me feel like crap as a kid the the point that I would wish I was never born. This is a hard post for me to type up because as I’m typing the things she’d say to me are rushing to the surface and reopening those old

Letter of the day: I

"I" as in me. I was born in the summer of 78 in San Jose , CA. At around age 5 I went to live with my grandfather in Lamont, Ca along with my 2 cousins while our mom's were on "vacation". I'll be 35 this year. When I look back at my life I am blown away.  I want to write a book one day, not because I think I'm super fascinating but because It might just bring hope to others in similar situations that I've been in. I type like I talk, lol so please excuse my run on sentences. I lost my mind once but got it back after I realized it was the situation I was in that caused it, so I walked away.  My childhood wasn't all unicorns and rainbows but it did make me who I am today. I was a teen mom. It's hard to believe I have an 18 year old! Having my son at a young age was one of my motivations to be where I am today.  I was a mom again at 23. My princess Beanna was a total surprise and my saving grace. I'm a firm believer in "breaking the cyc
