It's August Already?!

In the last year, I have listened to so many books on tape……..I mean audiobooks, LOL. I have a friend that works at the library and for years she has been encouraging everyone in our salsa group to take advantage of all the great benefits from the library. I finally listened last year.

Did you know if you have a library card you can download 7 free ebooks, movies, audiobooks, music, or tv shows on Hoopla and 5 items on Libby? I have found that there are more options on Hoopla but I use both, especially when I go through my 7 on Hoopla. I don’t seem to have time to sit down to read a book and I have been trying hard to stay off social media and never watch the news.

Instead, I have been listening to books like crazy. I just finished listening to a series of books by Michelle Moran. I just finished Cleopatra’s Daughter, this historical fiction is told from the view of Cleopatra Selene (Moon), the daughter of Cleopatra and Mark Anthony. She had a twin brother Alexander Helio (Sun). 


Not only was Cleopatra basically the mother of skincare and beauty, she was very intelligent, spoke up to 9 languages, and did you know she wasn’t Egyptian? She was Macedonian Greek. Her children were very well educated. 


I learned all sorts of things about Cleopatra. Here is a great link of tidbits of info:


Did you know that there were actually multiple women that were Pharaohs or Regents in Egypt? The Ancient World makes the Sopranos look like child's play. LOL Here are a few links I found interesting:



Happy August!


Here are some of Cleopatra VII’s beauty routines that you can do at home:


Milk Bath - You can add ½ gallon of milk (cow or goat), this is a great way to use up milk that is close or at or slightly over the expiration date. I have also used yogurt. Add Essential Oils of Jasmine or Sandalwood


Honey Masks - This is a wonderful treatment. Check at our blog post -


Salt Scrub - This is easy to make at home and you can use all over the body (but not the face please). 

  • 1 cup of fine salt I like Pink Himalayian because it is pretty and I feel has more mineral content than regular table salt.

  • 1/2 cup jojoba oil

  • 2 teaspoons fresh thyme, leaves stripped from the stems or rosemary or mint (chopped) or even dried roses or other herbs

  • You can also add a few drops of essential oils

Rose Water - I love rose water and use it to soak my cotton rounds to use for cooling eye pads.


Raspberry Dark Chocolate Facial Treatment!


I really love this Raspberry Peach Enzyme so thought why not spread out the love just a little longer and combine it with our Chocolate Mint Mask. It makes a delicious, aromatic, and indulgent treatment! Your skin will appreciate all the antioxidants crammed into this hour of goodness. 

The raspberry soothes skin irritations and provides anti-inflammatory-like benefits. Peach softens the skin and is aromatically relaxing. Hibiscus flower (flower power) is a gentle alternative to AHAs and has a moisturizing effect. It is an antioxidant that maintains skin elasticity, tones, and acts as an anti-inflammatory. Pumpkin adds exfoliating properties to this enzyme. This pro-aging treatment contains only fruit enzymes, no acids but for those who want an added boost, we can add some glycolic or lactic, it can be used on anyone, including pregnant women, sensitive skin, and even those with rosacea.

The Dark Chocolate Mint Mask includes cocoa, glycerin, and squalane which are excellent emollients, lubricants, and humectants to draw moisture to dry flaky skin.  Vitamin E is an excellent anti-aging antioxidant

You can enjoy this hour long treatment for only $80.

  • GlycodermTM (P) is a combination of water, honey, phospholipids, sphingolipids, and hyaluronic acid. It restores the lipid barrier of the epidermis and increases water absorption in the corneocytes by adding natural moisturizing factors. It plumps and moisturizes the skin and improves the skin’s ability to hold moisture.
  • Honey is antibacterial and healing. It assists in wound repair, alleviates bruising, and has humectant properties that keep the skin moist.
  • Hyaluronic Acid naturally occurs in the dermis of human skin and has water-binding properties. It increases skin suppleness and strength, strengthens the intercellular matrix, and smoothes the skin.
  • Phospholipids assist in barrier repair, improve barrier function, and protect from outside aggressors and bacteria. Phospholipids constitute membranes of living cells and modulate their fluidity and permeability.
  • Sphingolipids balance surface lipids, regenerate healthy cells, and moisturize the skin. Sphingolipids also emulsify and bind oil and water.
  • Matrixyl Synthe’ 6 2% is a combination of glycerin, water, hydroxypropyl cyclodextin, and palmitoyl tripeptide-38). It evens out skin and smoothes wrinkles from the inside by rebuilding the skin where it is needed, particularly on the forehead and crow’s feet. It also stimulates the synthesis of the skin matrix and dermal-epidermal junction. DN-AGE is a trade name for cassia alata leaf extract and protects the cells from DNA damage caused by UV rays. It also supports the natural repairing process of cells.
  • Lipomoist is a trade name for carrageenans (chondrus crispus) and is a highly moisturizing molecular film that enhances elasticity through cohesion of the extra cellular matrix. It works on adding hydration, elasticity, and firmness to the skin.
