 (Quick note-I heart Eva Mendes!, she's just all kinds of gorgeous to me, so all pictures on this post shall be of her :)

So you guys know that one of my favorite skincare line is the Olay Regenerist Range. I checked their website some weeks back and discovered that the key super ingredient in the Regenerist range is niacinamide. This is basically Vitamin B3, an essential part of the Vitamin B group.It is easily soluble in water or glycerin.

Here's what the Olay website had to say:
What is niacinamide?

You may have heard of it referred to as vitamin B3. Well tolerated and compatible with other anti aging products, niacinamide is an effective ingredient in skin care products. Topical niacinamide improves skin’s moisture barrier—and this helps allow for the natural production of collagen. It also strengthens the stratum corneum, or outermost layer of skin, and increases the rate of skin surface renewal to help reverse the appearance of past damage such as discoloration or the look of enlarged pores.

Niacinamide is apparently key to physical health and is especially beneficial to the skin for the following; anti-inflammatory properties, anti-acne, improves the appearance of aged, hyperpigmented skin, anti-wrinkle properties, reduces fine lines, stimulates collagen etc.
Some top products that contain niacinamide as the principal ingredient include Olay and Strivectin-SD.

So what we did at The Stunning Lady was to make purchases of niacinamide from a trusted US based cosmetics supplier. 
The vitamin can be easily mixed with moisturizers or made into pastes for facial masks etc(Please don’t mix niacinamide into harsh products with hydroquinone or mercury and don't use such products either!)and applied for smoother, supple and beautiful skin.

Anyone interested can always send a mail to thestunninglady@gmail.com regarding purchase.
Take care!

Away With Dark Spots!

Hello everyone, so in my seemingly perpetual rounds on youtube skincare channels, I found some great products for treating dark spots which is usually a by-product of acne and its wickedness, lol.

1. Garnier Skin Renew Dark Spot Overnight Peel.

I decided to buy a try this product after watching the lady's video below. It did a good job for her and I wanted similar results!

2. Garnier Skin Renew Clinical Dark Spot Corrector.

The dark spot corrector was recommended as well by someone else so I got both.
Truthfully, I havent been using both daily probably more like thrice a week but its done a steady and good job at fading dark spots.
I will keep using it for the times when am tempted to pop a zit knowing I have a go-to product!

3. Mulberry Extract.

I wonder why this product isn't more popular 'cause I saw results pretty fast. Its that great. It also has other skincare benefits aside fading dark spots as its a great moisturizer and anti-aging product, so this is recommended as well. Best of all, its natural and safe.

So yeah try it and let me know what you think!

Winning The Acne Battle

Hi guys, HUGEEEEE apologies for the disappearing act, life just got a whole lot busier and etc etc....but trust everyone's great?  Praise God!
Okay for those with oily and blemish-prone skin, we can all relate to the acne battle, pimples and what-have-you. Personally, I have had struggles with acne for a while and used quite a number of products whihc didn't  till I just turned to make-up. Well dears, foundation and powders worsened the situation a lot more! This is why its soooo important not to sleep with make-up.
Well from experience, natural products work best at combating acne. Now I know I have shared severally on products that have been tested and trusted to help combat acne but I think a quick recap will be helpful to new readers/followers.

1. Australian Tea Tree Oil

Please notice I wrote Australian, its a bit more pricey but it gets the job done. Remember to dilute if according to how sensitive your skin is. The brand above, Apothecary Extracts seems to have the best feedback!
I have also heard of the doTERRA lavender oil which cleared off a friend's acne in about a week, so do try that out as well, here's a pic below;
Remember to remember that essential oils are pretty strong, DILUTE AS NEEDED.

2.Apple Cider Vinegar

I know a lady who used this, the Bragg's brand, mixed with lime juice and green tea and got rid of particularly terrible acne. Remember, your skin might be more sensitive but ACV does work. If you are getting another brand, remember to get ACV that contains "the mother" which is supposed to show its organic and of better quality, I think?

3. Masks and Activated Charcoal

Okay, when using masks it is sooo important to STEAM your face FIRST. This is because blemishes or acne are like solid fat activated by bacteria, for want of a better phrase. Steaming helps to make the mask's job easier and gives you better results.
I have heard about activated charcoal and how great it is at purifying the skin so the Freeman Mask is a good idea but true battle warriors against acne know that Mint Julep is a key front-fighter.

4. Biore Self-Heating Mask and Biore Pore Cleansing Wipes 
For the girl on the go, these Biore (with some kind of apostrophe on the e) products are pretty good when combating acne. The self-heating mask (to be used on freshly washed skin) and the cleansing wipes do what they say, and this will take you about a minute or two to have clean pores which is a major step to acne-free skin.

Have a blessed week and let me know what you think!

20 ways to wow!!! (Part 2)

     Hi! Hi! So here's the part 2 of the 20 ways to wow. Sorry it took ages!

 11. Make your own mask. Cabbage and turmeric, rich in vitamins and minerals blended into a mask can be used to deep-cleanse and calm skin. Turmeric is available on this blog :)

 12. Banish dark circles caused by blood vessels showing through the thin skin with Hyaluronic Acid. It plumps up skin cells, making the skin less transparent. Hyaluronic acid serum is available on this blog.

 13.  Wake up tired eyes. As you age, your eyelashes thin and crows feet begin to develop. Restore a youthful appearance by using a lash serum and eye cream (Olay regenerist Micro-sculpting Eye and Lash Duo)

 14. Get rid of a pimple fast. Apply witch hazel to a cotton swab and press it on the pimple three or four times to deflate it.

15. Reach for some tea. With effects similar to that of painkillers and anti-inflammatories, chamomile helps calm acne- as well as your nerves. Brew three or four bags of tea. When its cooled, dab on face with a cotton pad twice daily to diffuse inflamed breakouts.

16. Rather than spend a truckload of cash on drops of Vitamin C serums, prepare your own Vit C serum by mixing ascorbic acid with water and spraying it on your face. Same fab results!

17. Get rid of dark spots safely by checking for these 3 natural skin brightening extracts; Kojic acid, Bearberry extract and Licorice. 

18. Don't be deceived. Top dermatologists and skincare specialists all agree that Natural Unrefined Shea Butter is still one of the greatest gifts you can give your skin.

19. Never leave make-up on for too long. Clogged pores=acne, tired looking skin.

20. Work out! This gets helps your pores get rid of toxin, gives a natural glow and keeps you energized.

I do hope you try some of these fab tips, I like the Vitamin C tip best because you can also ingest it and apply topically. Let me know your favorite tip.

Take care!

20 ways to wow!!! (Part 1)

Hey All, I know, I know, its been a while but I am just grateful to God to blog again :)

Ok, so I came across these fab 35 ways to wow! and I picked a few that I believe are relevant to the blog :)
Lets get started!

1.  Whiten your teeth by rubbing them with the inside of an orange peel. It contains limonene, a natural solvent cleaner. The peel also doesn’t have teeth-eroding acid in it.

2.   Use tried and true cucumber and Preparation H on the eyes;they decrease the appearance of under-eye bags.

3. Give your face special treatment. Don't use the same towel on your face as you do for your body; the latter may have excess oils or skin flakes on it. Instead use a white hand towel to dry off.

4.  Got milk? Add a couple of cups of milk to your bath (or as a mask, use turmeric (available on this blog) to thicken milk masks). The lactic acid renews and softens your skin.

5. If you have very dry skin or suffer from eczema, watch for moisturizers that contain a lot of water. When the water evaporates, it makes skin even drier.

6.  Honey is not just a burn soother. It’s also a skin saver. Dab some on a pimple and let it sit for 20 minutes to help dry out skin fast. Rinse with warm water.

7. Use a blue-based eyeliner pencil shade along your eye rim: It makes the whites of your eyes look brighter.

8. Add a little foundation to your body cream to make your legs look flawless.

9.  To rock the fierce matte lip that’s so hot right now, exfoliate lips first with a fine grain scrub or your washcloth.

10. Try this all-natural body polish once a week for smoother skin; 4 peeled avocados, 1 cup sugar, two tablespoons olive oil, 1 lime.

   Try some of this and let me know what you think! :)
   Take care!
