I got Racked.

If you haven’t already been bombarded with this – there is no escape.

Last week I was featured on Racked LAย as a “Glam Pro”. This is kind of a big deal and I’d love it if you checked it out. After all – there is no such thing as bad publicity, right?

I’ll make it worth your while with all the product recommends and an exfoliant recipe you can make in your home because you already have the ingredients. Swearsies!

Here’s a little taste…

The photographer, Elizabeth Daniels, and I had a little too much fun at Naimie’s that day. Now she’s got a whole new beauty regime and I’m super excited about it.

Special thanks to Natalie de Groot for giving me a shirt from her new line, Nat+J, for the shoot.

And, of course, big love to Kat Odell for whoring me.ย โ™ฅ

Pour Helen…

A few tips and tricks I’ve picked up along the way using products (and produce) found in most kitchens.

Exfoliate Face:

  1. quarter size of shampoo (almost any shampoo works, gentle is best)
  2. 1/2 tspn of salt (sea salt is always first choice)
  3. mix well between palms
  4. scrub face in circular motions
  5. wash with lukewarm water
  6. take an ice cube and gently run it across the skin on your face
  7. moisturize

Exfoliate Body:

  1. 1 part olive oil
  2. 2 parts ground coffee beans
  3. mix well (in a cup or bowl of your choice)
  4. scoop and scrub body thoroughly, especially on target areas*
  5. moisturize

*When used externally coffee helps break down cellulite, or fat cells under the skin, and increase blood flow thus flushing away toxins.

Dry Itchy Scalp:

  1. half of a ripe banana
  2. half of a ripe avocado
  3. 3 Tbsp of honey
  4. mix well
  5. apply to scalp
  6. shower cap for 30 minutes
  7. wash

โœญ Also for the long run – a capsule of Aspirin dropped into a fresh shampoo bottle does wonders.
