Mom Sunday Spa Night Turmeric Mask First Aid Beauty

Mom Sunday Spa Night: First Aid Beauty Ginger & Turmeric Mask

Hey Mamas,

It’s the first Sunday of the new year, the first Mom Sunday Spa Night of 2018, and, for those who love a good awards show, tonight is also the 2018 Golden Globes.

So, I’m sharing one of my golden glow skincare secrets – turmeric mask, specially the First Aid Beauty HELLO FAB GINGER & TURMERIC VITAMIN C JELLY MASK.

Also know as the golden root, turmeric is an antioxidant powerhouse that fights free radicals – aka the damaging rays and other environmental stressers that attacks and try break down your skin cells. I say, “Heck no!” and “Hello Fab!”.

First Aid Beauty’s Ginger & Turmeric Mask goes on cool, which is super refreshing after a warm bath, and does not drip like some jelly masks. It’s also pretty clear, with a hint of orange, so I feel comfortable walking around the house in it.

I usually leave the mask on for about 20-30 minutes, then rinse off with super cold water – the colder the better for minimizing pores and keeping skin tight.

If you’re looking for a quick brightening boost before a big event, or another mask to add into your beauty repeater, consider this your fab new friend.

Below are some more beauty benefits of turmeric, in case you need extra convincing.

PS Mark my words, Turmeric will be the Matcha wellness and skincare buzz word of 2018! #YouHearditHereFirstMom Sunday Spa Night Turmeric Mask First Aid Beauty

Beauty Benefits of Coconuts: FRIDAY 5 FINDS

Hey Mamas,

Is anyone else crazy about coconuts? Have any of you mamas been wondering if all the beauty benefits of coconuts are just, well, nuts? And, does anyone else feel like it was a coconuts kind of week, maybe more coco-nuts than usual?

Yes, to all of the above; at least on my end.

On Monday night, my daughter, Ilana, started to look and act sick – you know that look kids get with glossy eyes, followed by an increased desire to be quiet and still. This was during the first night of Passover. We left our family’s seder early (aka 10pm) to get home and find out Ilana was running a 101.7 fever.

Naturally, Tuesday’s planned day of fun in Manhattan was canceled.

Ilana, I found out to my delight, had tonsillitis. So, while I scrambled to find someone to help with David so that he wasn’t near her, I also began to cancel the rest of my week – save for a PIX11 segment that was focusing on, ironically, “Spring Break Survival for Moms”.

So, now, I needed to survive.

Fortunately, my coconuts week only strengthened my mommy game, desire to be more present with the kids, gratitude for creating the flexibility to be all-in when needed, and reaffirmed my infinite love for all things coconuts.

HELLO!! Passover means no usual dessert need apply. And, I was home – all week – with a sick toddler. Let’s pop those coconut macaroons, mamas.

While those particularly coconuts might not be the healthiest or have any beauty benefits – okay, who am I kidding, coconut macaroons are saturated with saturated fat AND artificial flavor; there are, however, plenty of other coconut-infused products that are good for you inside and out.

Today’s Friday Five Finds focus on the beauty benefits of coconuts. From your kitchen cabinet to your beauty cabinet, you want to go coco-nuts over this amazing fruit!
