I think the Pinterest quotes have it right : “beauty is on the inside” “being yourself is beautiful” “confidence is sexy”.
That sounds lame, but I think they are on to something because I believe being comfortable allows us to shine and be beautiful. When we feel uncomfortable - in a situation, in our clothes, in our own skin we dim ourselves and our beauty.
In an uncomfortable situation or when we feel judged it is hard to show our true self and come into our own. When we feel self conscious in our clothes we try to blend into the wallpaper, we change how we hold ourselves, we tug and fidget - but when we feel like a smoke show we show how fire we really are! I think that feeling confident in owning our look, our self, our bodies makes us beautiful.
Now let’s talk feeling comfortable in your own skin - your literal skin. Skin is the largest organ on our bodies and I think it comes with the largest range of conflicting ‘right kind of beautiful’ prescriptions. You can’t be too light or too dark. You can’t be too pale or too rosy. You can’t have too much of it. You can’t age. You should be smooth and flawless at all times - if you’re not you should wear makeup. But if you wear makeup you should wear less…
And to combat all those conflicting issues we are bombarded with skin care tips and tricks, medications and supplements and crystals, treatments and peels. Now, I’m not going to say I don’t love skin care or that I don’t love getting treatments done (I’m dying for a dermaplaning treatment + jelly mask as I write this) but I do think the shame that is put on us for not being perfect or not being makeup free is ridiculous. So :
Do you want microneedling and all the best masks to clear your skin for a makeup free future? Great! I know the sweetest girl who can help you get there!
Do you want a BB Glow treatment so you can wake up and feel confident and ready for the day - makeup already on? Amazing! I love that for you!
Do you want to brush on some powder or 7 layers of Sephora curated perfection? ROCK THOSE SKILLS!!!
Do what is right for you and what is going to make you feel good; there is no right or wrong way to feel comfortable in your own skin. If you want some skin care with no judgement hit up our girl McKenna - you can swing by for a free consultation and just chat or get down to business with an amazing treatment!
Amazing news SASO babes. We are now carrying Maui Babe sun products!! If you have ever travelled to Hawaii, you have probably seen these magic lotions for sale in the shops (and if you are anything like me brought 5 home in your suitcase!). The Maui Babe Browning Lotions and After Browning Lotion are truly an island secret combo for getting you that gorgeous golden brown fast. We have added four of their amazing products to our Regina, SK Salon Society boutique: Maui Babe Sunscreen (SPF 50 & Reef Safe), Maui Babe Original Browning Lotion, Maui Babe Coconut Oil Browning Lotion, and Maui Babe After Browning Lotion.
Maui Babe Sunscreen SPF 50
Protect your babe skin and our coral reefs with the Amazing Maui Babe Reef Safe Broad Spectrum SPF 50 Sunscreen! This sunscreen is a water-based sunscreen lotion with a soft, tropical scent and a light, non-greasy feel. Maui Babe Sunscreen protects from both the sun’s UVA and UVB rays.
A new and improved formula. FDA approved and coral reef friendly (because we love our planet and the fishies!).
Original Browning Lotion
Amazing Maui Babe Browning Lotion is a tanning accelerant that will naturally give you a deep, dark, and rich tan - eliminating long and endless hours in the sun! The lotion’s formula is safe for a wide range of skin types and derived from a secret family recipe that uses a mix of natural Hawaiian ingredients. Enjoy sunbathing with “A Local Secret.”
Something that we love about the Maui Babe products is that they are designed to work in combination with sunscreen so you can get the tan you want while still protecting your skin with SPF!
Browning Lotion with Coconut Oil
The Maui Babe Browning Lotion with Coconut Oil is an all-natural alternative to their Original Browning Lotion for those of you SASO babes who love a softer coconut scent. It is made from 100% natural ingredients and can be used both outdoors and in tanning beds.
The Browning Lotion with Coconut Oil is highly recommended for those with fair skin and those without a base tan as the formula acts more gradually to slowly build up to a dark, deep, and golden tan. As with their original formula, the Browning Lotion with Coconut Oil is compatible with sunscreen and SPF use is recommended!
After Browning Lotion
Seal in your deep, dark tan and prevent peeling and flaking by using the After Browning Lotion. This amazing after sun lotion aids in healing skin damaged by the sun, salt, and wind. Personally, I believe it is the BEST sunburn remedy around! It is made with all-natural ingredients like macadamia nut oil and aloe vera. It has a lightweight consistency and is great to use all year round to keep your skin smooth, hydrated, and rejuvenated. Enjoy enhancing and healing your tan with this amazing product!
