This summer I’m going to do everything I can, in the beauty department, to make this a carefree season of fun. This includes protecting my hair, skin, and nails. Yes, this is my idea of fun. I created a list of 10 summer beauty favorites that are definitely must-haves for me. Here’s to a hassle-free summer!
Newsflash! I’m not a nail art pro. Come on…like you really thought I was. Oh well, that won’t stop me from showing off my soccer spirit with a little bit of nail polish. And since the world has fútbol fever right now, you’ll definitely fit in. As you’ll see below, you don’t have to be a pro to show off your country’s colors. It’s actually pretty easy.
Summer is almost officially here! Seriously, can this year stop flying by? It may be moving at a pace faster than we like, but at least bright and sunny days are here. I know you guys love that! I also know you guys love your Urban Decay Naked collection and they have what you want to perfect your summer beauty routine.
I’m not perfect. Sometimes I have confidence issues at the most random moments. I frequently question myself. And I have body parts that I like to hide. I guess you can say I’m perfectly imperfect and I’m OK with that. I’m here to share with you what some might call “faults.” I’ve embraced them. That’s why I’m taking Nair’s pledge to “Reveal Your Best Self.” Will you?
Let’s be honest with ourselves for a minute. Whether we like it or not, our skin is aging right now. Seriously, as I’m typing this, a wrinkle is probably forming. But, that’s OK! It’s a part of life and something we all are going to go through. But, that doesn’t mean I have to sit in the dark when it comes to what’s good and bad for my skin. Especially at this point in my life. I reached out to Lubriderm’s first Hispanic Board Certified Dermatologist, Dr. Maria Patricia Rivas to answer a few of my questions and give us her tips for aging skin.

Do you hear that? I think the beach is calling us? Have you already decided what swimsuit and sunglasses you’ll be rocking this summer? Do you have your sunscreen picked out already? I hope you do! Wait…before you even think about laying out in that sun, I want to make sure you’re not fooled by some of the sun care myths out there. Let’s bust a few right now!
Are you strict when it comes to your skin care? I know there are a lot of you out there that are. I am now…took me long enough. Well, know that proper skin care isn’t just a myth, if you care for it the right way, it shows. A few weeks ago, I was invited to the Neutrogena Skin Health Summit. Held here in Los Angeles, it was two days of skin fabulousness. Take a look below.

True story…sometimes I just want to chop all of my hair off. Maybe go with something like a pixie cut. In my head, I think that things would be so much easier with short hair. I wouldn’t have to style it, damage it, and worry about split ends. Then, I see photos of myself with long hair and I fall back in love. And I remember that with products like Neutrogena’s Triple Repair line, I don’t have to worry about all that damage anymore.
Wow! It’s been a while since my last Curvy Girl Travels post. Sorry about that! There’s only one way I know how to make it up to you…that’s with a super cool giveaway courtesy of Mary Kay of course! I’m also going to pass on a few of my favorite travel beauty tips…which I’ve been using a lot lately. Hopefully, you can use them for your upcoming spring and summer travels.
Let’s be honest, when was the last time you thought about scalp care? I’ll admit I rarely give my own scalp any thought and how to properly take care of it. It’s not something that a lot of people talk about either and it’s really only a problem when you’re having issues. Well, we’re not going to remain clueless around here anymore. I reached out to Neutrogena® Dermatologist Dr. Leyda Bowes, for a few essential tips for a healthy scalp.
It’s about to get really personal in here. I’m ready to let you go where I’ve never let anyone go before—all up in my pores. Yes, my pores! Neutrogena sent me their Pore Refining collection and I wanted to test it out. For seven days straight, I used it daily. Did my pores get smaller? Did my skin get any smoother?
I love the saying “Go big or go home.” It really is a testament to the measures we are willing to go to, to achieve what we want. You either do what you have to do, or just go home. It’s that simple. And that can pretty much go for anything in your life. But, what about your hair?
