Quick Ways To Remove A Bad Tan

FYBC 2:15.jpeg

Glowing skin always looks great, doesn’t it? But most of us become victims of a suntan. Our hands are not as bright as the rest of our body, and that adds to our woes. We wonder if we must go for expensive treatments to bring back our lost beauty.

  1. Yogurt And Turmeric Mask
  2. Aloe Vera
  3. Lemon Juice
  4. Gram Flour And Turmeric
  5. Honey And Lemon Juice
  6. Orange Peel With Milk
  7. Petroleum Jelly
  8. Exfoliation
  9. Borax Powder With Glycerine And Rose Water
  10. Raw Milk

A bad spray tan is unacceptable. Here at FYBC, we take great pride in our spray tanning services. If you recently received a bad spray tan and are hoping for some at home remedies, read along!

The Oldest Trick In the Book

Mix lemon juice with baking soda and together these two will make a paste. Apply the mixture to your skin and let it saturate for about five minutes. After the time is up, remove the paste with a cleansing wipe. By doing this, you will be removing your tan completely. It is a smart idea to test the mixture on a small part of your skin before slathering your body. This way you can determine any skin sensitivity! If you are hoping to simply lighten your spray tan, only leave the mixture on for three minutes.

Relaxing and Effective

One of the best ways to remove a bad spray tan is rather therapeutic. Steam yourself in the shower for fifteen minutes or longer. Exfoliate as best you can, dry off well and moisturize! This little trick will leave you streak free and soft to the touch!

A Quick Fix

If your spray tan is blotchy, a quality face powder or self-tanner can help even out small areas. Use a cotton ball or Q-Tip to apply the product and blend the borders of your skin and the spray tan. This is a great temporary fix.

Your spray tanning experience should be nothing less than amazing. Our spray tan technicians here at FYBC are skilled and experienced! Here at FYBC, we offer the best spray tans in all of Denver. Our secret is our one of a kind formula. It goes on smooth and lasts for weeks, never leaving you looking orange. Book your appointment today.

Last Minute Valentine’s Day Advice

Fybc 2:13

Half the fun of Valentine’s Day is dressing up and feeling like a goddess. There are always ways to accentuate your beauty and you don’t have to go to a salon to do it. Here are a few, simple tips that can help you feel like a million bucks come the 14th.

Kissable Is Good

Preparing your skin for the holiday of love begins with the lips! Be ready for a million kisses from your loved one but making sure your lips are smooth and luscious. Start by exfoliating your lips with a lip balm that contains alpha hydroxyl. Next, moisturize by applying a Shea Butter based balm. Try to stay away from anything overly scented or flavored. Lastly, try a tinted lip balm for a pop of color. These three steps will leave your lips feeling moisturized and completely kissable!

Don’t Cake It On

Dry and dull skin is to be expected during this time of year. Piling on the foundation to cover up dry and dull skin is the worst thing you could do. Not only will more foundation bring attention to your irritated skin but also it will continue to dry it out. By applying less foundation this Valentine’s Day you will create the look of fresh, rejuvenated skin. A creamy formula, like a BB cream, when applied with your fingers will allow more of your skin to show through which makes you look more awake. Less is more for your skin this Valentine’s Day.

Make Things Easy With A Wax

Being hair free is important for this special night. Here at Forever Young Body Clinic, we offer quick and painless waxing of just about any area of the body. A wax with us is effortless and will leave your skin feeling smoother than ever before. With a wax, you won’t have to worry about razor bumps or irritated skin. Check out our waxing menu for more information!

Feeling confident and beautiful is a great way to do that. Our beauty services here at FYBC are perfect for any occasion, but especially for Valentines Day festivities.

You can find some of the best massage oils at your nearest health food store. Even my local grocery store now carries carrier oils and essential oils. To a 4 ounce bottle of carrier oil (grapeseed, jojoba, almond or apricot kernel), add 4 drops each of any two aphrodisiac essential oils like sandalwood (perfect for your man), jasmine, patchouli the add 4 drops of one warming oil (black pepper, ginger, or cardamom). Shake and apply.

Pink Heart Shaped Himalayan Salt Bath Bombs

The ingredient list is short:

  • A ratio of 2:1:1 for baking soda, salt, and citric acid.  
  • Heart Molds
  • Pink from the Himalayan salt

White Chocolate Lotion Bars

You will need equal amounts of beeswax, cocoa butter and coconut oil melted in a double boiler. Stir and pour the mixture into your favorite heart mold until it sets. For easy pop out, freeze for 30 minutes after they’ve sat at room temperature.

Personalized Lip Balms

Take the recipe in #3, drop into lip balm tubes using a medicine dropper, and have fun with the labels like, “Stick with me!”… “You’re the bee’s knees”… “Bee Mine”.

Basic Skin Care Tips You Should Follow During Winter

FYBC 2:6

Extreme weather temperatures, either hot or cold can do harm to your skin. However. Winter, in particular, can make your skin dry up and flake due to the dry wind and chilly conditions. Your regular skin regimen won’t help in such times. It’s true, during the winter months your skin needs a bit more pampering than usual in order to stay healthy and continue glowing. Here at a few winter tips for your complexion that stop dryness and dull looking skin in its tracks.

Cleanse

Regardless of the product you use, cleaning your face is a MUST! In fact, it’s a skincare step you should follow all year, no matter the season. In winter, you should limit the number of times you wash your face (2-3 times)! It is also helpful to alternatively cleanse your face with cold milk and a cotton ball, which prevents dryness.

Exfoliate

Exfoliating your skin with a quality scrub is help any season. But like cleansing, you want to limit the number of times your scrub your face during the winter. Scrubbing too much can cause abrasion and make your skin drier. A way to eliminate the chance of over-exfoliating your skin, consider using a mild exfoliating scrub. You can enhance your experience but making your own scrub with natural ingredients available at your home.

Try this DIY recipe:

  • 2 tbsp. mashed ripe banana
  • 2 tbsp. of a mashed apple
  • 1 tbsp. honey
  • 2 dollops of your Mild scrub.

Mix all the ingredients and gently scrub your face for 2 minutes in circular motions. Washing it off with warm water and pat dry with a soft towel.

Toning To Tighten

Always use a toner that is chemical free! The harsher the toner, the more likely it is to disturb the PH levels of your skin. The purpose of a toner is to remove the post-cleansing residual dirt from your skin. Not to mention, toning tightens your skin and better prepares your skin to absorb any moisturizer or night serum you apply later.

Moisturize

Moisturizing isn’t necessary for only those with dry or flaky skin, but all skin types. You should always use a natural moisturizer, ones that contain extra virgin olive oil or almond oil.

Does Tea Tree Oil Remove Blackheads?

FYBC 2:1.jpeg

Blackheads. We almost never know what to do with them. Some sources say squeeze or scrub them, while others don’t. In all actuality, getting rid of blackheads is very simple as long as you know what to do and what to use. The magical fix to blackheads requires one product only, tea tree oil.
Why Does Tea Tree Oil Help Remove Blackheads?

Tea tree oil is great for treating other forms of acne because it contains antibacterial properties, is an excellent disinfectant and is soothing. But what makes tea tree oil so special is its ability to deeply penetrate the skin and get under the clogging in our pores. That being said, it disinfects, dries out the blackhead and unclogs the pores.

Ingredients:
  • 1 tbsp fine sugar
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1-2 drops tea tree oil
  • A steamer
Treatment Time: 15 minutes.
Method:
  1. Steam your face for about 5-10 minutes.
  2. Combine and mix all the ingredients until coarse.
  3. Apply mixture to your face and massage gently in circular motions.
  4. Massage for a couple of minutes and then rinse your face with cool water.
Frequency: 2-3 times a week.
Why This Works

This tea tree scrub is a wonderful exfoliate which helps unclog pores and dry out pesky blackheads. Be sure you are using pure tea tree oil only. Any other variants may end up worsening the conditions of your blackheads.
