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.

mijita

Mijita (mee-hee-ta) - common term of endearment meaning "my small daughter" or more accurately "my dear child".

My grandfather called myself and my 2 cousins mijita growing up (although I know I was his #1, LOL). The nickname has been music to my ears since I was a little girl, everytime he'd call out "mijita" we'd coming running while arguing (even at times pulling eachother's hair) to get there first since we really never knew which one of us he was calling. I lost my grandpa 11 years ago this past April but just because he's no longer walking this earth does not mean he's not still with me daily as cliche as that may sound. My grandpa Tim raised us 3 girls for a few years while our mom's worked on getting their lives together and I have to say those were the BEST years of my life. I have said it time and time again without his influence I probably would not be the woman I am today and for that I am thankful. My life has not been…

Tween Tuesday

The other day driving home from school Beanna told me when she grows up she will have a foster kid (her words). I asked her what made her want a foster child and I have to say her response made me proud. Her reasoning behind wanting to be a foster parent was simple enough..."some kids need a good home and I want to give him or her one." She went on to tell me that one of her friends has a foster sister that the family treats as their own which is important because nobody wants to feel left out just because they're not blood related. I told her I agree completely, that blood isn't always what makes a family but rather the love we have for one another.
B and I talked quite a bit on the foster child subject with her pointing out that it's not a child's fault that they end up with "bad parents" and get taken away because after all they didn't ask to be born. This discussion left me warm and fuzzy. My daughter is wise beyond her years when it comes …

www.raisedbyculture.com I LOVE Xenia! I have known her for close to 11 years and consider her to be my blogging mentor as well as my inspiration to start this blog. Her blog is anything and everything family and definitely a place to visit if you’re a mommy. So with that said, take a minute to stop by and say hi – I promise you you’re not only going to love her but you’re going to fall in love with her adorable kiddos!

www.3twentysix.com Ari posts a little bit of everything on her blog from TV to music to cool apps and book reviews mixed in with bits of silliness. I promise you’ll find something of interest there if not you will at least get to enjoy some pictures of her furkids.
