Promos: SkinOwl Spotlights Crystal Pray

image

Welcome to our 1st SkinOwl Spotlight! With so many fabulous clients, it’s hard to show all of you how much you mean to us and how much we love hearing your skin-success stories. With the help of SkinOwl Spotlight, we are now able to highlight YOU and your journey to fabulous skin. After all, you deserve to be in the spotlight!

 

This week’s Spotlight introduces Celebrity Hair Stylist, Crystal Pray. Crystal might be known for her stunning scissor work at The Beverly Wilshire Hotel’s Lea Journo Salon, but now she can add GLOWING skin to her list of skills. We were inspired by Crystal’s success story, so much so that we had to share it with all of you. With not a lot of time on her hands, Crystal was in need of something simple and quick. Here’s a little skin-scoop on Crystal:

 

How old are you?
25 Years Old

 

How Would You Describe Your Skin in a Few Words:

Dry, breakouts, tired, fatigued eyes

 

What Products by SkinOwl Have You Tried/Used?

Lavender Oil and Under Eye Cream

 

What is one word you would use to describe SkinOwl’s skincare?

Revitalizing

 

When do you use your SkinOwl skincare?

All the time! At night before bed, I use the oil and eye cream. In the morning I use a small amount of oil before makeup application. My favorite is at the gym, when I use the sauna! I put the oil all over my face so the heat can really let it absorb into my skin!

 

Where do you live?
Los Angeles

What do you do for a living?

Hairstylist! With long days, my under eyes always look tired! The under eye cream has saved me, especially my dark circles! I always apply generously before bed.

 

In Her Words:
“I’m a busy gal, there’s just no other way to say it. I must admit, I was a bit wary of using SkinOwl’s facial oils at first. The thought of putting oil on my face made me think of grease, build up, & breakouts. My skin was always so dry and dehydrated and every product I tried for dry skin made me feel too oily.

 

Against my intuition, I started with the Lavender Argan Infusion oil, which is not only hydrating, but has such a soothing scent. I started off using it after yoga and found that it was very therapeutic. I could feel my skin soak up the natural oils and I was shocked.

 

Our Final Thought:
We can’t tell you how often we meet people who are scared to put oil on their already oily skin! We say KUDOS to Crystal for taking a risk and realizing that essential oils actually slurp up excess oil, unlike the synthetic oils found in some creams and lotions. A big thank you to Crystal for letting us highlight her skin journey! So happy to be a part of her success!

Things We Love: 40 Days of Dating

As women, in matters of love, we very often ponder the idea of “The One.” Is he? Isn’t he? Will he be? How will I know? We recently came across an unbelievable tribute to the art of finding Mr. Right, aka 40 Days of Dating. Meet Jessie and Tim, two single Manhattanites with very different dating pasts, a present day best friend-ship, and a daunting dating future. Equipped with brutal honesty and open minds, Jessie and Tim agree to explore dating each other (of course, there are rules) to see if “your best friend can ultimately be The One.” Needless to say, with only a few days left of their 40-day journey, we are more than intrigued and holding onto the edge of our laptops.

 

40 days of dating

 

All the skincare in the world couldn’t take the place of the glow that comes with feeling love or being in love. If any of you are currently contemplating where you stand in your current relationship, check out this goodie we stumbled upon somewhere around Day 15 of 40! :) Before reading their online diary, watch this video to see a sneak preview of the curious lovebirds in action!

 

Enjoy :)

Skinny Tips: DIY Exfoliant Moisturizing Mask

With so many products on the market, advertising a lot of the same things, it can be overwhelming to commit to just ONE cleanser, ONE serum, or ONE mask. That’s why we love making amazing products out of the comfort of our own home. We love a mask that exfoliates while it moisturizes and at the same time (being inexpensive and easy to make doesn’t hurt either!) Check out this DIY Exfoliant Moisturizing Mask that you can make tonight at home. Just follow the simple instructions using ingredients that you probably have in your kitchen right now!  Go ahead and give it a try and watch your skin glow…

 

diy exfoliant mask avocado lemon

 

Ingredients:

¼ of an avocado (mashed with fork)
1 slice of lemon (squeezed juice)
½ tablespoon of olive oil
1 tablespoon of honey
3 to 5 drops of your favorite SkinOwl Argan Infusion Oil (optional)

 

Directions:

Use fork or spoon to mix ingredients in a bowl. So simple!
Before you apply, take a warm wet towel and hold over your washed face for 2-3 minutes. This will open up your pores.
Use your fingers or a synthetic foundation brush to apply. The mask may drip, so be sure to have a shirt that you can wash.

 

Relax for 10-15 minutes. Wash well with warm water. Apply moisturizer.

Skingredients: Argan Oil

argan oil skin benefits

 

Did you know that Argan Oil has unbelievable anti-inflammatory benefits and can tackle almost every skin concern, from eczema to acne? These are just some of the many reasons that we infuse it into our products!

 

We all want the best for our skin, but sometimes taming our skin concerns takes something more, something healthier, and something that yields better results in a short amount of time. Although it seems counter intuitive to lather OIL onto your skin, Argan oil acts as a healer and decongestant that counteracts anything from acne to wrinkles!

At SkinOwl we offer three different Argan Infusion Oils to choose from; Lavender, Geranium, and Clary Sage.  Visit our website HERE to pick your perfect infusion, find out more about our products and how they can help you obtain clear, glowing skin!

Wise Words: It’s All Up To You

Create Beauty

 

Your path, your thoughts, your ideas, your ATTITUDE is all up to YOU!  Too often we blame others or our environment when things don’t go our way.  But the truth is that the only thing you can control is your outlook on a particular situation.  Choose to see the good, the bright side, the BEAUTY.  There is truly beauty all around and you have the power to see if you want to!  So do it!  It’s ALL up to you!

Wise Words: How You See

how you see

 

Beauty truly is in the eye of the beholder!  We all see the world differently, therefore we all feel differently about beauty, specifically our OWN beauty.  In the end, our individual beauty is what makes the world a wonderful place… variety!  People come in so many wonderful packages and there is room to admire them all in their own unique way.  You know what they say, variety is the spice of life!  Celebrate YOU and all of your uniqueness today and everyday.
